east bristol contemporary – Sculpture Open Call
east bristol contemporary (ebc) are seeking proposals for sculptural work for their show ebc013 which will take place 5th – 7th May 2017.
We are particularly interested in hearing proposals from emerging artists in the first 10 years of their career.
In general the work should be pre-existing, but a strong proposal to create new work could still be considered (providing sketches etc.) also bearing in mind the quick turn around of selection/show.
Ambitious sizeable work is also of interest to us as well as smaller works, the exhibition space is large, this is providing large works can be brought into the space, up a staircase and through double-ish doors.
Scultpures should also be free standing and not require wall support.
Selected works will be shown in the ebc013 exhibition, and artists will receive a modest artist fee (will not include travel or expenses), and negotiable support with logistics, and aid with accommodation.
Works will be selected by ebc.
To be eligible for the exhibition artists must –
-Have signed up to the ebc membership scheme http://eastbristolcontemporary.com/support/become-a-member/
-Be available to travel to Bristol for the entirety of the 3 days
set-up Friday 5th 9am – 7pm, exhibition opening event 7-10pm
exhibition continues Saturday 6th 10 – 5pm
