BEERS: NEW OPENCALL

Contemporary Visions VI seeks artists whose work and practice identifies and explores current themes, trends, and discoveries in contemporary art across all media and disciplines. This is a remarkable opportunity for artists at any stage to exhibit in a vetted exhibition in the heart of London’s vibrant art community. Past winners have gone on to solo-exhibitions with the gallery, presentations at art-fairs, or inclusions in publications, such as ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’, as well as other noteworthy opportunities with Beers and other galleries alike.
Artists worldwide, at any stage of their careers may apply.
