ARTIST CALLS for SPRING 2013…. COME GET INVOLVED
2013 then, Bang!? We have a number of artist calls and group shows coming together right now and as always Cultivate is about artists getting involved and doing it our/yourselves, you hopefully know some of the how and indeed the why we do it by now. Here then, are three events we invite artists to come get involved in (do keep watching, more to be announced in the next few days)
BACK IN BLACK – 31st JAN 2013 (FEB FIRST THURSDAY)
BACK IN BLACK is a two week open call group show that starts on the evening of Thursday January 31st and continues with a second late open on February First Thursday (and all that that involves down gallery-packed Vyner Street) The show will run for two weeks, the show will be black, a follow up to last February’s rather well received It Is Black show. Black then, the subject is deliberately vague and open to your interpretation and imagination – Black paint, monochrome feel, black in thought, some will say there is no such thing as black, black print, black contradictions… We invite submissions ideas, thoughts. There are no size restrictions, no rules, if we think it fits and it excites us enough to want it on the walls or plinths of Cultivate then we’ll invite you to come be part of it. The show is open to all artistic disciplines For more information and full details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
INTERNATIONAL FREE ART FRIDAY – 15th FEB
Time for another Free Art Friday on our corner of the street, coming up on Friday 15th Feb, we have another of our Free Art days. We’ve been holding them since our art space opened. artists have informally been leaving free art outside, or indeed inside the gallery on most Fridays. Now and again we like to get a little more formal about it and issue an invitation and publicise things a little. This time we’re throwing out the invite a little further than usual, throwing it out to the ever growing international Free Art movement and inviting artists from all over the world to either bring their free art to Cultivate in person or to mail it in for us to put outside (or inside if the weather isn’t good) on the day.
From Midday until 6pm on Friday February 15th, artists are invited to come down to the gallery and leave art outside. People are invited to come along and take part and quite take the art that has been left. The only thing we ask is that people respect this and only take one piece each. Some of the art will be right outside, some might hidden around the street (if the weather isn’t friendly then you’ll find it inside Cultivate). Any art left when we close at 6pm will be taken in and then left out again over the weekend.
Artists can bring art down to the gallery on the Friday during the event (or on the Thursday before and leave it with us, no art will be put out on the street until Friday afternoon) Artists who don’t live close enough can mail in art to us, Postal address: Free Art Friday, c/o Sean Worrall, Cultivate Gallery, 49 Mowlem Street, London E2 9HE, UK.
You can just send in art, you can come along and leave it on the day, you can send it in or drop anonymously, no need to apply, submit or anything else before hand/ We will be listing names and adding links ahead of time for those who wished to listed as taking part, contact us if you want to be listed, just turn up on the day if you prefer… The event will be filmed, photographed and documented. For more information and full details please contact email@example.com
SPRING – 7th MARCH 2013 (MARCH FIRST THURSDAY)
SPRING is a simply-titled two week open call group show beginning on the evening of First Thursday 7th March and running through until 20th March. Once again the title of the show is vague and open to your interpretation, imagination. We’re thinking the fresh shoots of spring, lush painted canvas, greenness, ripeness, freshness, leaves, buds, flowers, life, green green green, fresh fresh, new… We invite submissions ideas, thoughts. There are no size restrictions, no rules, if we think it fits and it excites us enough to want it on the walls or plinths of Cultivate then we’ll take it from there. The show is open to all artistic disciplines For more information and full details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a number of other events, group shows and such in the pipeline right now, we intend to be as busy as ever with our Spring schedule at Cultivate, so watch this space for more announcements. As always we’re open to all ideas, suggestions and such and Cultivate can be hired for your group shows, solo shows and such if we think they fit in with what we’re doing and saying… Come talk to us….
