An open call for art works addressing the private and public spaces women inhabit. The exhibition will examine how women occupy and experience those spaces and their complications and contradictions. These spaces may be physical, online, virtual or metaphorical spaces.

Entry is open to all who identify as women or AFAB, using all media. We want to capture the experiences of those from all backgrounds, with or without formal artistic training. Work is particularly welcome from early stage artists, those using found objects as part of their work and performance artists.

Artists are invited to submit images / descriptions of up to three works by 30th November 2022.  Selections will be made and successful artists notified by 15th December. Successful artists will be asked to make a small (£15) contribution to the costs of the private view.

The exhibition will run from 9th to 11th February at OPEN Ealing, Ealing, London, nearest tube Ealing Broadway.

All artists must be available in person for set up and take down on 8th and 12th February.
