Litmus Open Call: Parts 4 & 5

Litmus  is an exhibition and development programme offering curatorial and practical support for five early career artists based in Wales and the Welsh Borders to research, develop and present new work at Oriel Davies.

Artists are invited to submit applications for either part 4: Litmus Residency or part 5: Litmus Commission.

Litmus is based in our third exhibition space, which is a small yet adaptable space that measures 158cm (w) x 212cm (l) x 219cm (h). Whilst we’re anchoring the programme here, artists are encouraged to submit applications that consider other spaces/places in Oriel Davies (whether physical or digital), and the surrounding area.
