Fabrica Brighton is inviting UK artists to enter its latest Open Call.
The selected artist will appear in the In Between Gallery – a temporary exhibition platform for Fabrica’s picture window. Spectrum Photographic will print work on blue back paper.
This exciting initiative is now in its fifth year.
Entry is open to UK-based artists who consider themselves to be early to mid-career.
The judging panel will include partner organisations, photographer and curator Ibrahim Azab and independent curator Cairo Clarke.
About Fabrica Brighton Open Call
There is no theme for applications.
Artists should submit work that will function well within the context of a large format print set within the window frame.
Measurements are approximately 270cm x 225.5cm.
The window faces directly onto Duke Street, one of Brighton’s busiest pedestrianised quarters.
Main city centre pubs and clubs are also nearby so the street is normally busy into the evening and throughout the night.
One image by one artist or artist group will be chosen.
The exhibition will take place from early December to mid-February 2022.
Information about the selected artist and the image will feature on the Fabrica website.
