Call for artists: Expanded Drawing



The Concept

AIR Gallery, Altrincham, invites establishing and emerging artists of all disciplines to consider and submit artworks centered around what drawing is today. 

Drawing has always been used as a tool to slow down and observe. Challenging the pre-conceptions of a drawing in contemporary art. Everything has to begin somewhere and even with a mark, can drawing expand out both physically between and across mediums? Is drawing more than just marks on a page? Is the act/action of drawing just as important? How can we expand the notions of drawing through painting, sculpture, performance and social contexts? 


We are looking for drawing based practices or works that center around these questions. Considering the ideas of Expanding drawing, what can and cannot be a drawing today in both 2D and 3D contexts. The show aims to entice conversation and narrative of drawing on and off the page in creative and imaginative ideas into the gallery space where the space between thoughts and the physical gesture question drawings role today.

KLATCH 2.0 Residency




Shift is pleased to support Klatch in their upcoming curatorial residency.

In their time at Shift, Klatch will be developing their own practices alongside developing curatorial skills and building relationships with other artists.

Klatch is extending an invitation to artists working within the Cardiff/South Wales area to take part in a 2 week residency with the collective in SHIFT Cardiff.

This is not an invitation to be part of our collective, just to join us in a residency.

Deadline: 4PM, 29.07.19

Residency: 05.08.19 - 18.08.19

Closing Event: 16.18.19


Klatch was initially formed with the aim of celebrating our own distinctive approaches to
contemporary painting through curation that prompts critical discussion about what it means to
be a painter today. Our residency at Shift will offer other artists’ the opportunity to engage,
discuss, provoke and challenge each other within a shared space; a place to network, develop
practices’ in response to others, and to gain an understanding of working within an
interdisciplinary environment. We are welcoming artists from all disciplines to explore their
practice through sharing work with others, allowing others to experience in-progress/completed
works, and exploring contemporary practices through curation.
Within this residency, we aim to explore how each of our practices relate to each other and reveal
the different relationships that exist between contemporary practices. The space will be ever-
evolving as the artists participating in the residency will be collaborating together, and over the
course of the two weeks we will be inviting the public to join us for discussion.
