(Very) open call for submissions!
Class of 2020 is an exhibition to document a surreal year through the artwork we have produced.
This inclusive group show will run from December 10th to 23rd in south London, and we are looking for entries from artists of all experience levels and styles.
It is a showcase of artwork made in 2020. There are no other rules for entry – it just has to be something created during this calendar year.
You can submit up to five pieces of work, so it could be a series of work which tells the story of your whole year.
There are no rules on the type of work that can be submitted, it does not have to be themed around Covid or lockdown. The subject is completely up to you.
The work is not being judged, it is to show what different people have been up to during the year, and to enjoy other people’s unique responses to this unusual time.
All mediums, from drawing to painting, to sculpture and printmaking, and any other weird and wonderful creative practices you may have developed, are welcome.
All work submitted will also go into an online catalogue, and we want you to tell your story of 2020 alongside the work.
Class of 2020 is about saying: “We were there, we experienced it together – and these were our creative responses”.
CLASS OF 2020 // Dec 10-23 // London
Following the huge success of the Art of Isolation lockdown exhibition earlier this year in which 140 creatives participated, we will be keeping the format largely the same, with the work hung in a salon style (see pic).
That show saw a broad range of ages take part, from 6 to 76, and all experience levels, from the full-time artist to first-time painters, and we hope to have as broad a spectrum this time around.
And international artists and people who can’t get their work to the gallery in person can submit with the online only option.
After a difficult year financially, we aim to make this a good opportunity for people to sell their work.
So in the first week the show will be run as a traditional exhibition with visitors able to view and reserve work they wish to purchase, while in the second week buyers will be able to take the work they have purchased home with them on the day.
We look forward to seeing your work! Submissions close on November 30, but this is subject to be brought forward if it fills up quickly, so submit the sooner the better. To upload your work, click this link or go to the home page.
