CALL FOR ENTRIES: Exhibit Here's Hope Exhibition at the Menier Gallery

Opportunity Closing Date: 
Sunday, February 17, 2019 - 23:45

Exhibit Here is pleased to announce that we are returning to the Menier Gallery for a sixth time. The Menier Gallery offers a dramatic space to view and exhibit works of contemporary art and design. The gallery is situated within the historic Menier Chocolate Factory, minutes from London Bridge, Borough Market and Tate Modern.

The theme of the exhibition is 'Hope'. In our turbulent world art can provide a form of solace for many people, whether that's for the artist or the viewer. It allows us to release our inner thoughts and connect with others in a deep and meaningful way. Exhibit Here would like artists to consider who/what gives them hope, such as a person they have met or a place they have visited and/or what they are hopeful for. The theme can be interpreted in any way.

To coincide with the works on display, Exhibit Here would like artists to write one short paragraph (no more than 100 words) about their exhibited piece which conveys a positive message to connect with the viewer. This will be displayed alongside each artwork.

If you would like the opportunity to showcase your work at the Menier Gallery simply register as an Exhibit Here artist (for free) here and upload your artwork.

Exhibit Here is looking for artworks in the following mediums:

  • Canvas or framed wall based artworks (maximum size 100 x 100cm)
  • Sculptural pieces (small and large)
  • Small installations

Artwork for the windows:

There are three window spaces available to hang artworks; if you would like the opportunity to have your work displayed in one of these spaces submit two artworks which are exactly the same size (essential requirement) and one of your works will face the street and the other inside the gallery.

Artwork for the beam:

Exhibit Here is looking for an artwork to drape over or hang from this ceiling beam (view photo 1, photo 2 and photo 3).
