Call for artists for 'The Great Leveller?' an online exhibition
Sweet ‘Art are currently seeking artists to take part in their upcoming online exhibition in May 2020, to explore the idea of connections and creativity in this strange world we find ourselves in right now. We are seeking works of art to be displayed in 3 week long exhibition to be held in a virtual Sweet ‘Art gallery, accessible to anyone on a computer or phone, or even experienced as a 3D space using VR. The exhibition will run from the 14th May to the 7th June via the ArtSteps platform.
So do hit us with any work you think could fit the theme. We are looking for art which explores the ideas of strength and support from being part of a community, togetherness, ways of reaching others during social distancing, as well as critique of the ideas of ‘blitz spirit’, enforced joining-in, political critique and the inclusion/exclusion of marginalised communities or messages of the ‘prioritising’ of citizen demographics, and the stress of having others beamed into your home.
We will be seeking works in any medium including painting, photography, print and sculpture (we cannot accept video work unfortunately) and in honour of our organizational ethos we also welcome works that explore the theme in relation to issues that affect women both socially and politically. We also particularly welcome submissions from BAME artists and women of colour.
Even though this is a virtual show, we intend to carefully curate as always, and press releases and promotion will be included. We also would never have a Sweet ‘Art show without a private view, so will arrange an online opening and ask visitors to join us for a cocktail, enjoy artist talks, and there will as always be freebies and surprises.
There is no fee to submit your work but we will ask that all works are available for sale (to be shipped after lockdown ends, and that Sweet ‘Art will take 30% commission on all sales made via our exhibition. Full terms and conditions will be emailed with the submission form.
Submissions Deadline: 20th April at Midnight.
Submissions Process: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of our submission form.
This will need to be emailed back to us complete by the submission deadline for you to be considered for inclusion in the exhibition.
