Kunsthuis Gallery are set to showcase a 9 month exhibition in 2018 from 24th March – 23rd December that responds to the theme of Climate Change and the Environment. How are artists, educators, curators and galleries responding to climate change? What forms of art and its mediation are evolving along with our understanding of the crisis? Can art communicate the impacts of climate change and the environment more effectively than facts and figures?
Kunsthuis Gallery is looking for saleable work which encompasses a personal perspective regarding climate change and the environment. This could be as simple as a photograph of a landscape to an art piece produced through environmentally sourced materials.
Themes to interpret could be; wildlife, oceans, transport, biofuels, windpower, landscape, renewable energy, green economy, waste, safe climate, healthy planet, conservation.
Our aim is to curate an exciting exhibition of saleable work in the mediums of photography, ceramics, sculpture, illustration, painting, printmaking, drawing, textiles, glass, collage, digital and jewellery in order to showcase how artists are responding to this growing issue.
We want to encourage conversations, knowledge transfer and visual delights for our audiences in order to help promote effective and creative action to secure a safe future for humankind. As curators of this show, we believe the arts has a major role and responsibility to encourage the transformational thinking required to move us away from any destructive practices, and towards the environmental sustainability that we need to protect life on our wonderful planet.
Deadline 31st December 2017.
Please apply with a maximum of 3 pieces by paying the fee using the Paypal button below and then completing the CuratorSpace submission form.
Please note if you are submitting a collection of jewellery we allow a collection of up to 10 pieces for a £15 submission fee. Any additional collections would be £10 each.
Kunsthuis Gallery will take 50% commission from sales however, 5% of the commission taken will be donated to a selected Climate Change and Environmental charity (TBC).
Kunsthuis Gallery is located in Crayke, North Yorkshire set in a 1.6 acre wildlife garden and on the boundaries of the Howardian Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty. Due to the nature of our gallery's location and ethos, we are extremely passionate about this subject.Contact the curator
