With lockdown (hopefully) easing and the summer weather slowly returning, whether you are breathing in the fresh air or sneezing because of hayfever, we are slowly venturing out into the open air. From working during lockdown to the recent opening of creative spaces, artists can now venture beyond their studios and into inspiring outdoor spaces.

Come Outside is an exhibition that will celebrate the easing of lockdown and the relationship between outdoor spaces and creative development. Planning to exhibit, artwork made that reflects, references, or is inspired by the outdoors, with going outside being an essential role within the creative process; these artworks will be exhibited in an online exhibition to discuss the variety of experiences and reflections of going outside and the influences on creative practices. 

This is a part of a hybrid online and offline exhibition which celebrates outdoor influences on creative practices; this open call is for the online section of this exhibition. Artists and artworks for the offline exhibition have already been decided and submissions from this open call, wanting to exhibit in the offline exhibition section, will not be accepted. 

20 artists will be selected for the online exhibition and will exhibit alongside the offline artists.

Submitting Work:

  • File names: Please have the title of the work be the file name, if the artwork is in a sequence include the parts in the file name (e.g. TITLE_PART1.jpg). CuratorSpace will change the order of your submission files. 

  • 2D and 3D artworks are accepted. Non-digital work must be photographed at high quality (low-quality/pixelated images will not be accepted). 2D works must be cropped to the edges of the work. 3D works must be photographed against a white/blank background with one photo per image (if the object is in a series, then the series can be photographed together). 

  • Video, Audio and Performance artworks are accepted. These must be recorded, uploaded to Youtube and made public. Please provide and link to the video in the provided box on the submission form. (Audio works do not need a visual in their video).

  • Text, Creative Writing and Poetry are accepted. These must be uploaded as a PDF, if the structure of the text is important (spacing, pacing and paragraphs) please upload this as a screenshot, crop to the edges of the page with the text readable. Texts more than 1,000 words will not be accepted.
