SIILK Gallery Residency and Exhibition open call





SIILK Gallery Residency and Exhibition open call

We here at SIILK GALLERY are looking for photographers from all walks of life from around the world for our 2020 residency program and group shows.

With the success of our current Gallery throughout 2019 we will be launching a new exhibition space in 2020. This has gave us the opportunity to transform our current gallery into artists residency, self contained studio and exhibition space.


The Residency:

The residency will consist of a 4 week running program with accommodation where you can live and work from the space in Athens, Greece. Use the place for a solo show for the 2, 4 or 8 weeks or use it like an open studio, run workshops, talks, utilize the space in whichever way you want. Your works will also be featured in our online gallery for the new website of our mother gallery

We will also do a feature / interview with you leading up to the residency as well as a preview event with works created during that time.


How the exhibits work:

At Silk Gallery we offer 3m of wall space for a 1 month (4 week) exhibition. You work will be curated alongside another 3/4 photographers from around the world to exhibit at our new and improved gallery space.

We will have an opening evening for each exhibition with press attendees, we will have private viewings and local and international coverage of each event event.

All works will be available for sale in the gallery and on the online.


The exhibition program includes:

4 week exhibition at Silk Gallery

Private view/press viewings and other publicity

Design and printing of invitations, mail out and social media invites

Curation & Installation of works

Photography of work for catalogue, website, press and online store

Featured work & artist information on and social medias


We take 0% commission on works sold throughout the duration of the artists stay and at exhibitions.


Info about the gallery:


Our gallery is situated in the Exarchea / Neapoli area of Athens, Greece. The area is the center of art and culture in Athens, it has a thriving arts scene and community. Exarchea has an edgy alternative vibe, its streets decorated with politically charged murals and lined with anarchist bookshops and stores selling rare vinyl and vintage antiques. Bars and clubs host live music, including rembetika, jazz and punk acts. For night life and the arts, entertainment and contemporary culture it is the place to be in Athens, Greece.


The Gallery is spread over 2 floors to exhibit in and an upstairs self contained studio for our residents..

It is in a very central location with access from a main road, it has a full 2 story glass double frontage so it makes for a very bright exhibiting space.

Thanks, we look forward to receiving your submissions.
