This is an open call for submissions from artists in Berkshire and the south of England to participate in a curated exhibition on the theme of ageing and memories.
“Maybe this is what growing old was like, she thought. Maybe the world gets smaller and smaller until there's nothing but the walls around you to show you where you end and the rest of the world begins.”
- Naomi Jackson, The Star Side of Bird Hill (2015)
This is an open call for submissions to participate in a curated exhibition on the theme of ageing and memories. The exhibition aims to explore, through a variety of media, topics such as - personal reflections on growing older; the impact of age related diseases on memory; how older people are viewed in a world that is constantly changing; and other ideas that are drawn from the knowledge that comes through getting older or seeing family and friends experience old age.
When: 11th to 15th July 2018
Who: selected artists from Berkshire and the south of England
Where: The exhibition will be held in The Brock Keep Gallery, OpenHand OpenSpace, Reading, Berkshire RG30 1HL; a Grade II listed building built in 1877, a space that has seen many changes in it's long life.
What: all media will be considered, the selection will be based on how the work responds to the theme along with how it will fit within the unique spaces of The Brock Keep Gallery. The aim is to show a range of responses with a variety of media including but not limited to installation, video, sound, 2D and 3D works.
