OPEN CALL: Art Competition For Teens - LIFTED19


04 Nov 2019 to 01 Dec 2019

This year for LIFTED 2019 we are inviting 15-19 year old London based artists to submit their very best work for an exciting opportunity to be part of a group exhibition at the amazing Genesis Cinema Gallery!

Dark Yellow Dot aims to encourage new artists with a strong personal vision and innovative approach to art making. We are here to make art accessible to the everyday person, and bring opportunities to new and emerging artists.

The Genesis Cinema has been offering entertainment in London's East End since 1848. With a rich and jam packed history, it had once housed performances by Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, and Barbra Windsor to name a few. Now it's a bustling independent cinema with an ambient cafe and cocktail bar and is known for showcasing local artists in its popular gallery space.

Both the artist and the artwork must be in London to be considered, as both Dark Yellow Dot and Genesis prides itself on promoting local arts and culture.
