OPEN CALL FOR ARTWORK SUBMISSIONS
As part of our Women In Horror event on 9th Feb, we are also hosting an art exhibition at Constellations. We invite submissions of artwork which respond to this broad theme:
TO CELEBRATE WOMEN IN HORROR AND THEIR IMPACT ON THE GENRE
The exhibition will be on display from early to mid-February – referred to as the ‘Primary Exhibition’.
On the day of the WIH event (Sat 9th Feb), additional work will be displayed (referred to as ‘Event Exhibition’).
For the Primary Exhibition, we can ONLY accept wall mounted pieces. This includes paintings, drawings, prints, prints of digital artwork, photography and suchlike. Poetry and prose are welcome, but must be provided as a framed piece of work.
Free standing sculpture and other 3D work can only be considered for display at the Event Exhibition.
We CANNOT accept digital, multimedia, or installation work dues to additional tech requirements. Sorry!
(Artwork created digitally, and then printed & framed is absolutely fine.)
Constellations is a public space so it’s essential that work in the Primary Exhibition is deemed suitable for all ages and doesn’t have the potential to alarm or offend general public. Explicit gore, violence, or sexual content fall under this category.
During the Event Exhibition, we may have a ‘Viewer Discretion Advised’ section. This will be reserved for artworks considered unsuitable for viewing by the general public.
- Wall hanging pieces MUST be framed, or have appropriate fixings if on canvas.
- Artwork should be not exceed 1.5m in any dimension. Our recommended submission size is a 50cm wide x70cm tall frame.
- Please contact us to discuss how to best display of 3D work. We may be unable to accommodate large items.
- Submit no more than 3 items of work.
