Exhibition Submissions

Open Eye Gallery is open to receiving exhibition proposals from artists and curators. We welcome artists from any stage of their career to share their ideas with us; we are always interested to hear about your work and new projects.

Established at the gallery in 2013, the submission process enables practitioners at all stages of their career, who use photography as their medium, to share their latest ideas and projects with us.

With the support of the Brian Mercer Charitable Trust, we are proud to present a series of three annual Open exhibitions to show work received through our on-going call for Exhibition Submissions.

Open provides a platform for displaying new work, particularly from emerging practitioners, and a forum for discussion thanks to a rich programme of public events unfolding throughout the duration of the exhibition.

For the first exhibition in the series, titled Open 1 (2015), Open Eye Gallery’s curatorial team selected six artists whose work is thematically grouped around ideas of social portraiture.

For Open 2: Pieces of You (2016),  six new and early career artists predominantly from the North share a curiosity in exploring how we gather and make meaning of our experiences.

Open 3 will be exhibited in 2017.

Please be aware of the following:

–   As we are part of broad networks of curators and galleries operating internationally, it is possible that we shall pass information on about artists we meet as appropriate for other opportunities.

–   The Open Eye Gallery Programme Team meet four times a year to review submissions. Please make sure that your submission meets one of the following deadlines: 31st January, 30th April, 31st July or 31st October. 

Please download the following documents to apply and send completed applications to thomas@openeye.org.uk
