We are seeking artists working in all media for our open submission exhibition EMERGENCY. This is an international opportunity, seeking applications from anyone who considers themselves to be an emerging artist.
A maximum of ten artists will be selected for a group show, which will open in December 2017. During this exhibition a winner will be chosen to receive a solo exhibition at Aspex in 2018, as well as a fee of £1,000.
The selectors are: Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex; Lindsay Friend, Director IMT Gallery (Image Music Text); Cathy Lomax, Artist & Director Transition Gallery and Adam Sutherland, Director Grizedale Arts.
EMERGENCY was established in 2003, and each edition has provided an opportunity for the winner to realize a solo exhibition at the gallery. Previous winners include: Susan Collis (2003), Tim Machin (2005), Cathy Ward & Eric Wright (2007), Kihlberg & Henry (2009), Charlie Tweed (2011), Jim Howieson (2013) and Maya Ramsay (2015).
Deadline for submissions is Sunday 13 August 2017.
The submission fee is £15.00 sterling. A concessionary fee of £10.00 sterling is available for students and Aspex Artist Associates.
