Exciting opportunity curated by Hogarth Productions and Niquelle Latouche ARTS from the University of Reading to exhibit at Reading’s Takeaway gallery during Whitley Arts Festival 2014 !! GET IN TOUCH!!
WHITLEY ARTS FESTIVAL
EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITY – CALL FOR ARTISTS – TAKEAWAY GALLERY
The Whitley Arts Festival (20th October – 10th November 2014) is offering an exciting opportunity exclusively to students from Reading University. Curated by Hogarth Productions, and Reading University 3rd year Fine Art & English Literature student Niquelle LaTouche (currently on an internship with the festival), the successful applicant(s) will showcase their work independently as part of a nationally focussed festival which encourages innovation providing a platform for new work. The exhibition will run for the duration of the festival.
This open brief encourages you to submit ideas of new work – or examples of existing work that can inhabit the environment of a working canvas and photo printing shop in Reading’s Victorian Harris arcade. The work need not respond directly to its environment, but consideration should be given to the setting. A visit to the shop is advisable although not mandatory. The submission could consist of a single work, or a series of pieces, or indeed work from a number of artists. Video and audio work will also be considered. Work that challenges perceived or literal boundaries is encouraged.
There is no fee on offer, but this is an opportunity to place work in a new and public context in a festival with a growing reputation for innovation and experimentation.
Amongst the offerings at this year’s festival there will be contemporary theatre from Greg Wohead, Sara Davies, live art from Taey Iohe, contemporary choral work from Gabriel Jackson. See www.whitleyartsfestival for more info about the festival.
To apply please send any questions, finalised images, video clips of performance or works in progress by the 3rd of October 2014 along with a written summary of the work’s ideas and intentions (no more than 250 words) via email at: Niquelle.email@example.com so that discussions with successful applicants can be arranged. All applications should be a maximum of 3mb in size.
