2019 Bow Open Show Open Call

Deadline: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 12:00

We are delighted to announce the selector of the 2019 Bow Open Show as visual artist Carey Young. Young has developed her artistic practice from a cross-fertilisation of disciplines including economics, law, politics, science and communication. The tools of these different fields act as material for her installations, text works and photographs, as well as for videos in which absurd relationships develop between the performer and the rhetoric of political, commercial or legal discourse. With this in mind, Young invites submissions from Bow Arts artists that potentially engages with our current, quite particular, moment.

I will look at all submissions with a generous spirit, but want to especially encourage work which responds to our current political moment, open to all definitions of ‘us’, of ‘time’, or, indeed, ‘politics’

The 2019 Bow Open Show is only open to artists who currently hold a studio or affordable housing with Bow Arts, or those who are working with our Education Department. 

To enter is free and we invite submissions of up to three works per artist. All media are welcome, together with ideas for events during the exhibition programme.
