LOA OPEN CALL 2020 : Artists or curators working around the topic of global identities and transcultural experiences




Dear artist and curators,

Leave of Absence is opening its 2020 calendar and accepting proposals from artists or curators working around the topic of global identities and transcultural experiences. Submissions will be accepted from now until December 30th 2019. All proposals should be submitted digitally in PDF form to

Leave Of Absence is a self-sustaining art space that exists to explore the positioning of contemporary art, its creators and viewers in a transient age. LOA is hidden inside a private, gated courtyard off Dalston Lane, a small white cube space with limited opening hours to the public. Founded by five artists with different backgrounds, each nominated three artists to consider making work for the space: one friend, one inspiration and one artist that does not have the right to live and work in the UK. Exhibited artists then go on to make their own nominations, creating a self-augmenting network of connected ideas.

We curate four LOA nomination exhibitions and two invited projects a year. The aim of the open call is to open up the dialogue between the existing exhibitions. 



Topics connected with:

• third culture imaginations

• (reverse) integration

• technology and nation

• language in translation and hybridisation

• superstitions and customs

• cross-cultural intimacies

• diaspora artists

• imagined communities

• transnational mobility

will be taken into consideration.
