Open Call: Fibres

Seeking artistic responses to the theme of Fibres.

​Textile making traditions spans global cultures as one of the earliest human technologies. It has been a staple in industry, fashion, craft and decorative arts throughout the ages but it particularly made a resurgence in the 1960s back into the contemporary art world. Since then Fibre and textile arts have been developing new forms and language -becoming more conceptual and cross-disciplinary, even into this digital age.

​We're are seeking works that explore (but are not limited to) the following areas:

  • Textiles (Fibre art, Ecology, Upcycling, Craft, Natural vs Synthetic materials, Traditional vs contemporary methods of making, Materiality, Cross-disciplinary art)

  • Technology (Fibre optics, making and machinery of modern textiles, video/film, animation, VR, 3D printing, digital responses to textiles and fibres)

 

We are particularly interested in works that cross over between the two but this is not essential. Works can explore their own themes but there must have a link to the idea of textiles, materiality or fibres in some form.

​This will accumulate in a group exhibition that will explore the the relationship between textiles and technology; between the ecology and the digital that will take place in March 2023.

​£5 per piece to enter. Deadline to apply: 4th Feb 2023

AIR Gallery is pleased to present 'Re-Call'; a group exhibition featuring the four winners of last year’s AIR Open 2021. Bringing together a collection of new works by Candice Dehnavi, Gustavo Ferro, Jayne Anita Smith and Naomi Kendrick; the exhibition aims to showcase how each artist has developed over the past year since winning their awards.

​The title of the show is both a roll call and welcome back to these artists whilst prompting the viewer to cast their mind back to our last open show. However recollection as a theme underlies some of the works being presented; with a focus on memory, learned experience, nostaligia and instinct.
