Newlyn Art Gallery

Transition is an opportunity for artists, or artist groups, to use the gallery space to consider how a series of works is developing or to try out ideas for an installation or interactive project. Transition gives artists the time and space to take ideas forward in a public environment, aiming to explore conceptual and practical issues, without the constraints of presenting a finalised exhibition. Artists can challenge their practice and take risks concerning their usual working techniques. It offers visitors the chance to see work in a state of flux, meet the artists and discuss the work.

We are looking for proposals for the first three weeks of Transition 2019
See Read More below or view PDF here Transition 2019 call for proposals for details and how to apply.
Deadline for proposals is Mon 19 Nov 2018.

Transition is an opportunity for artists, or artist groups, to use the gallery space at Newlyn Art Gallery to consider how a series of works is developing or to try out ideas for an installation or interactive project. Each artist will be given a week-long slot in either the lower gallery or the upper gallery, with a total of eight artists (or groups of artists) participating over the four weeks. The gallery can provide in-house support, some AV equipment and a small budget of £300 per project that can be used towards transport/travel/materials.

Transition gives artists the time and space to take ideas forward in a public environment, aiming to resolve conceptual and practical issues, without the constraints of presenting a finalised exhibition. Artists can challenge their practice and take risks concerning their usual working techniques.

Proposals should give a provisional outline of the project, the artworks and media involved. They should indicate how you intend to use the time and space. There are no restraints regarding choice of media, and interaction with public is encouraged. We are looking for proposals for first three weeks of Transition 2019:

Week 1: Tue 19 – Sat 23 Feb  /  Week 2: Tue 26 Feb – Sat 2 Mar  /  Week 3: Tue 5 Feb – Sat 9 Mar
