Shape Open 2019

Website: https://www.shapearts.org.uk/News/submissions-for-shape-open-2019

Submissions are now open for the 2019 Shape Open, to be hosted by Nunnery Gallery, at Bow Arts.. The Open is Shape’s annual exhibition of artwork by disabled and non-disabled artists created in response to a disability-centred theme. This year’s theme is ‘In Circles’: Are we going around in circles? Disability Arts and the mainstream have long run parallel to one another whilst rarely converging. The conversations surrounding this divide have seemingly circled but what has come of it? Where are our points of connection and commonality? Works submitted to the exhibition should respond, abstractly or literally, to ideas on the theme, and contribute to the discourse on what disability is and could be. Artists are invited to submit work in 2D, 3D, video or audio form. Any artist can apply to the call for submissions and exhibitors will be selected by a panel of arts industry judges.
