Call for art internationally, South East London Exhibition




Warbling invites international submissions of contemporary art for a carefully curated group exhibition to be held in East Dulwich, London from the 25th February - 7th March 2020. All mediums will be considered for the exhibition including sculpture, installation, video, painting, printmaking, photography and site-specific. 

Titled ‘To all our absent dialogues’, it’s completely up to each artist submitting to come to their own conclusions on how the title might relate or sit nicely alongside their practice. It’s interesting to read different ideas and interpretations of our titles in the submissions form, however, it is not obligatory to do so and often if a work stands out, it can be related in some way to the other works being considered within the exhibition as a whole, from our own perspective.

The exhibition is to be curated by Robyn Graham and will be returning to 155a Gallery in East Dulwich, South East London, a space in which we first made our home in August 2019 for ‘Of course, I haven’t forgotten!’. 155a Gallery is an enticing space that was once a Victorian Bakery, with many subtle characteristics and charms lending itself well to a careful and intimate group show. 155a is also ever becoming more and more engaged with the South East London artist community since opening in November 2018, and we’re very excited to be part of the programme again!

LONDON CONTEMPORARY International Art Fair will be held in London, at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space from September 27 to October 25, 2019, during the same period of Frieze London (03 – 06 October, 2019, curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt and Lydia Yee). 

The participation includes the following services:

The Experimental Video and Performance Art Festival will analyze the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression. The Festival will focuse also on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by the magical power of London, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears through rituals that brings human kind to change, to transform and to evolve their inner world.

Deadline for applications is September 08, 2019 (11.59 PM of your local time).

Residency Opportunity: Undisciplinary




Arts Catalyst and The Otolith Collective are launching Undisciplinary, a new residency supporting three UK-based artists, curators and cultural practitioners.

At a time when the cracks and fault lines of contemporary neoliberal society are becoming more visible, how can we, as cultural producers, address notions of power, access and equity? And how can these macropolitics shape the micropolitics of the field we inhabit – the visual arts?

Emerging artists, artist collectives, curators, cultural practitioners and writers whose research focuses on critical issues in global perspectives of the 21st century are invited to apply. We are particularly interested in hearing from practitioners whose research addresses the politics of ecology, gender and race, contemporary activist struggles and from those engaged with rethinking genres of the human in relation to the Black radical tradition.

Piloting from April 2019, this month-long residency will provide learning, networking and mentoring opportunities as well as a critical framework for challenging existing structures that underlie artistic and cultural production. 

The three residents will have the opportunity to

• Shape both individually and collectively the Undisciplinary programme together with Arts Catalyst and The Otolith Collective, while directly informing its design and delivery

• Participate in and nurture a supportive network of artists, curators and organisations

• Receive 1:1 mentoring and support around specific projects and/or their broad practice

• Access Arts Catalyst and The Otolith Collective’s network of artists, curators, institutions, academic and scientists

• Present and share elements of their individual and/or collective inquiry process by co-curating a resource room at Arts Catalyst in April 2019

• Be supported in testing out different forms of presentation including writing, broadcasting, public programme, performance

A number of partner organisations will be involved to provide further opportunities for residency participants.

There is no expected exhibition at the end of the residency rather, a desire to develop a platform for the research through seminars, screenings, podcasts, a reading room etc.

A dedicated research space will be available at Arts Catalyst throughout April 2019. We encourage the three residents to be active in the space during this period. 


Applicants should be UK-based and have been out of formal education for at least one year. 

We welcome in particular applications from artists and curators from BAME backgrounds. 

In order to apply please send us an expression of interest including / explaining:

• A summary of your research proposal, (250 words max)

• A full research proposal, including how you think this residency could help you expand your practice (700 words max)

• How you plan to approach your research, (400 words max)

• CV (2 pages max)

• Supporting material, dependent on your practice; 10 images maximum, 3 video clips (max length of all clips - 5 min), writings / text

Deadline: Sunday 3 February at 11.59pm

The application should be sent in the form of one single PDF to the email address provided below.

Successful applicants will be notified by 15 February

Costs and finance:
Successful applicants will receive £1000, which breaks down as bursary fee of £600 and £400 for research, such as visiting mentors, inviting speakers 

Arts Catalyst is a contemporary art organisation focused on transdisciplinary art and inquiry. It commissions and produces projects, artworks and exhibitions that connect with other fields of knowledge, expanding artistic practice into domains associated with science and specialist research. Arts Catalyst has commissioned more than 160 artists’ projects, including major new works by Tomás Saraceno, Aleksandra Mir, Ashok Sukumaran, Otolith Group, and Critical Art Ensemble. Arts Catalyst’s Centre in King's Cross, London, is a hub for the organisation’s work, nationally and internationally, providing a space for developing new projects and co-inquiries connecting local interests with wider planetary issues.

The Otolith Collective expands on the work of The Otolith Group, which was founded in 2002 by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshunin. It is a curatorial public platform through which exhibition-making, artists' writing, workshops, publication, and teaching are aimed at developing close readings of images and sounds in contemporary society. Approaching curation as an artistic practice of building intergenerational and cross-cultural platforms, the collective has been influential in critically introducing particular works of artists such as Chris Marker, Harun Farocki, Anand Patwardhan, Etel Adnan, Black Audio Film Collective, Sue Clayton, Mani Kaul, Peter Watkins, and Chimurenga in the UK, US, Europe, and Lebanon.

Call for Zines for (In)visible Exhibition & Permanent Library



DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS to arrive for inclusion in (In)visible exhibition is 4 OCTOBER 2018 (please bear this in mind when posting).

Taking place between 9 – 14 October to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October, (In)visible will feature a group of artists who have used their work as self-expression, communication and therapeutic release. With themes often thought of as taboo such as mental illness, abuse, and domestic violence, this exhibition promotes honesty and non-censorship. We aim to create a visually stimulating, thought-provoking and engaging event that ignites discussion, tackles stigmas and unites artist and audience.

The exhibition will take place at the artist-run, Espacio Gallery, Shoreditch, London and will display a range of art disciplines, including performance and interactive art.

Atramental is curating a zine library to accompany the (In)visible exhibition. Artists are invited to submit zines which will become part of this exhibition. They will then form a permanent collection to be used for future events.

The ethos of Atramental is to champion creatives who use their practice to express their discontentment. It aims to provide a platform for self-expression and honesty, challenge taboos and reduce stigma. 

Zines which express issues around the following themes will be accepted:

Mental illness
Physical illness
Domestic Violence
Family/relationship breakdown

Whilst non-censorship is encouraged, Atramental is an inclusive and non-discriminatory collective. Any zines containing inflammatory or discriminatory imagery or language will not be used. Artistic nudity can be accepted, but due to the public nature of the event, gratuitous sexually explicit content will be rejected. 

This is a conceptual zine library and zines submitted must fit this. If your concept is not immediately obvious, please provide a brief description of the theme/content when sending.

Atramental reserves the right to reject any zines deemed unsuitable or inappropriate. Artists will be notified of rejected entries. These are unable to be returned.

Artists are welcome to send business or postcards with their zine(s), but due to readers’ handling it cannot be guaranteed that these will stay inside your zine (unless affixed).

Artists’ names will be included on a poster which will accompany the library.

(For collaborative zines, credit will fall to the curator(s))

Zines will be photographed & shared on social media. Artists who include their social media usernames/Etsy links will receive a shout-out on Instagram and/or Twitter. Selected zines will be reviewed by Atramental in a blog post. If you do not wish your zine to be displayed on social media, please state this when sending. Anonymous submissions are also welcome!

Maximum zine size: A3

To receive the address for sending submissions, please email: with the subject Zine Address.
