Bow Open exhibition 2017

Bow Open

The annual Bow Open Show showcases work from our studio holders and artist educators, providing a snapshot of some of the most exciting art being made in east London today.

How it works

Every year, a different guest curator is invited to select the work, giving each exhibition a unique and distinct perspective. Events accompany the exhibition, with chances to take part in hands-on workshops with artists and curator-led discussions. A staple of the Nunnery Gallery programme, it is the only exhibition in the space dedicated solely to the presentation of Bow Arts members.
