From 24 Nov – 7 Dec 2014, we’ll be joining forces with Goldsmiths at 310 NX Rd to hold a multidisciplinary DIY pop-up featuring exhibitions, installations, music, performances, discussions and more. Now open for submissions exclusively from Goldsmiths students and alumni. We are seeking:
- Artists working in any medium to explore the theme of ‘The Other’. The chosen work will form a public exhibition held for the duration of the pop-up. Some pieces can be in progress at the time of exhibition and could potentially be worked on on site.
- Musicians, performers and filmmakers to showcase their work at gigs, events and live shows. Contributions for these events should also tie in with the idea of ‘The Other’ – whether through the stories told, the medium used or by the way in which the artist identifies themself.
- Researchers interested in ideas connected to The Other, including gender, feminism and identity – particularly in relation to the arts and the creative spheres.
- Volunteers to help before and during the pop-up, especially those who want to gain experience in curating, events and arts programming.
Collaborative work is encouraged and multi-disciplinary submissions will be welcomed. Please note that we do not have the budget to contribute towards materials or equipment, nor can we provide very specialist technical support.
Exhibiting artists must be available for installation on 24 November and break down on 7 December. If you are submitting work as a group, at least one participating artist must be a Goldsmiths student or alumni.
To submit, please send information about yourself and examples of your work, along with a proposal or idea of how you’d like to contribute.
All enquiries and submissions should be sent to Jenna at email@example.com.
Deadline for submissions is Friday 7 November.
