Small House Gallery : Open Call
Deadline: 19/03/2021 | Published: 20/09/2020 | Venue: SMALL HOUSE GALLERY | City: Online and London | Country: United Kingdom | Eldi Dundee
A mini contemporary art curation project for a dolls house.
The Small House Gallery is a miniature art gallery in a 1:12 scaled dollshouse which is situated in a private residence in South London, (but will be moving across to a shared studio space up the road) and occasionally travels to other exhibition spaces, galleries or studios (predominantly in London).
Visits would normally be by appointment for the residential or studio locations, but all visits are suspended during Covid, therefore this call-out is an offer to show your selected miniature works in an online exhibition on the Small House Gallery's website, Instagram and Facebook pages.
Artist proposals are perpetually welcome. Please see website's OPEN CALL page for Small House Gallery dimensions before you make a proposal. https://smallhousegallery.wordpress.com/open-call
Please include the following:
City / country of birth
Current country / city of residence (if different)
Full postal address
Telephone number (+ dialing codes)
Your professional web or blog links
Artist statement with Bio
CV / resume
Up to 10 x jpeg images of proposed work (drawings, sketches, photos, video stills) or links to video or sound works, labelled as: YourName_WorkTitle_Date
Image list (Title, Year, Medium, Dimensions)
A brief essay/outline of your vision for a show at Small House Gallery
Preferred timeline (for sending work, showing it, shipping back, etc. For example, if you are still in the process of making the work, are you proposing it for 3 months from now? or is the work finished and ready to ship and exhibit now? What’s your ideal length for your show? a couple of weeks? a month?
Contact the curator
Even in non-Covid times, in its current private residence, it isn't practical to have strangers traipsing through, and that's more to do with neighbours than anything else. However, when Small House Gallery itself travels to other real life sized gallery or exhibition spaces, it may be possible to negotiate a private view / opening / finissage with them.
Online mainly. It sometimes does travel to other spaces that do have disabled access (it was at Shonibare Studios' Guest Projects space for example which is completely wheelchair friendly) but in its current residence and in the studio it's about to move to, there are several stairs.
There may be points after Covid, if the Small House Gallery is asked to exhibit in another gallery space, that you may be asked to help invigilate your own work, depending on the space's set up. But that would be discussed ahead of time and as/or when an opportunity to show elsewhere presents itself.
Installation of your work can't destroy the structure or surfaces of Small House Gallery, so that needs to be taken into account. No work that is discriminatory in any way against any group of disadvantaged people will be accepted. What gets accepted beyond that criteria is going to be subjective to a degree, based on personal tastes of the curator(s). But perhaps most importantly, it will also will need to work on a practical/logistical level. No clashing dates for instance.
You must have an account to send a message to the curator of this opportunity. Registering only takes a few moments. Once registered you'll be able to keep track of all of your submissions and get updates on upcoming opportunities.
