OPEN CALL – Winter Salon : POWER PLAY

The Concept Space is welcoming submissions for it’s Winter Salon, open exhibition with the aim of providing an opportunity for artists to be part of a curated showcase. This is part of the initiative to break its programme of exhibitions to open the platform to other artists as good independent spaces become ever more scarce in London.

Artists working in painting, drawing, installation, printing, recorded performance, photography, digital art, sculpture, video, mixed media, including works on textiles, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, mosaic, paper or other unique medium are courage to submit.

The theme set by the exhibition curator is “Power Play” and explores the power of one colour over another, density of one material over another, one texture over another, a movement over another or the juxtaposition of one shape, form or image to another to create, influence or suggest contrasting impact. It is the power of one element or series of elements to provoke a certain reaction or response from the viewer.
