The World is Plastic. We are Pie. The Plastic Pie collective unfurl their debut exhibition, Cellophane Wrapper, and are seeking innovative artworks for their exhibition at The Proteus Creation Space in July 2023.

The Plastic Pie collective welcomes submissions for their newest exhibition, Cellophane Wrapper. We are seeking artworks from both emerging and established artists, relating to the theme and concept of unwrapping, uncovering and discovering. 

We welcome work in all disciplines and media forms, including sound.

As a creative art collective, our aim is to increase access to exhibition opportunities for both established and emerging artists, outside of the London bubble. Glorious though it is in London, we can’t all get there.

Proteus Creation Space is a multi-use facility in the town of Basingstoke. A creative hub in a beautiful Victorian building, with an award winning theatre company and thriving creative community that actively supports the arts in all its forms. “From early-career circus performers to established visual artists, Proteus plays a vital role in the development of the artistic community in both Basingstoke and beyond.”

The Plastic Pie collective is the combined efforts of Katie Karcheski and Naomi Escott, both interdisciplinary artists with a deep interest in facilitating creative exploits through collective stunts and deeds. Come, JOIN US!!!
