R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curation presents ‘Otherworlds.1’, a show exploring the themes of shamanism, witchcraft, earth/nature, ritual, portals, dreams, the apocalypse, psychology, politics, trickery and identity. In a complicated world where darkness can shroud reality how do we as artists (as spiritually inclined individuals) question, negotiate and challenge our surroundings in search of healing?


We are seeking artists for the exhibition, ‘Otherworlds.1’, taking place on the 8th to the 9th of December 2017 in Bricklane (the 5th Base Gallery). Applicants are welcome to submit sculpture, painting, photography, performance and sound work. If selected for the exhibition there will be a participation fee of £100.00.

During the day of the 8th December 2017 R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curators will install all artworks for the exhibition. There will be a private viewing commencing on the evening of the 8th, Of which all artists are encouraged to attend. On the 9th the exhibition will be open to the public for the day closing in the evening for de-installation. 

The selected participants are paying for a two-day exhibition including the shows curation, PR and administration procedures. A physical catalogue will be produced for the show, and R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curation will provide all artists with an exhibition certificate.

R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curation support artists to make sales as a result of our exhibitions through the use of our 'purchase form' (we require no commission). When a client wants to purchase an artwork the purchase form enables the artist, client and R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curation to exchange contact details. It also gives the client important information regarding the artwork such as upkeep and display methods. Ultimately the purchase form is a contract which encourages the artist and client to proceed with sales after the exhibition has ended (R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curation help facilitate business we do not become involved with transcation procedures). If an artists work is sold as a result of a R-e-d-B-l-a-c-k-curation exhibition we would ask the artist to inform us so that we may keep this information on record via the purchase form.

If you are selected for the Otherworld.1 exhibition you will need to complete our exhibition agreement/contract which states the perameters of our work and our obligation to you. We will also provide the purchase form for you to sign if you desire to sell your work.

Best of luck with your submissions,
