Call For Artists
Sweet ‘Art are a not for profit arts organization dedicated to the promotion of artists operating from a feminist perspective. We are currently seeking artists to exhibit work as part of our next show in aid of International Women’s Day in March 2017 which will be called T’ART!
Born from a frustration of seeing no art events or exhibitions in London that celebrated IWD back in 2012, we hosted our first IWD show and now we have a tradition of hosting fun and thought provoking exhibitions each year to celebrate. 2017 will be no exception!
We are seeking artists identifying as any gender whose works are of any media including painting, illustration, sculpture, installation, print, photography and performance. All works must explore the theme of femininity, feminine identity and women’s day. This can be an exploration of the female form, gender identity, feminist issues, social and political issues and constructs or personal accounts and perspectives. Works can celebrate, critique, challenge, ridicule and reflect notions of femininity in our society and internationally.
This year we are also focusing on archiving the participation of guests visiting the show and further documenting the thoughts and feelings of our participating artists by compiling contributions to the T’ART ZINE, throughout the shows duration and as part of our arty party. So we are also interested to hear from anyone who may identify as a woman and wishes to be involved in or contribute to the T’ART ZINE, or who may wish to present and distribute their own zine or zine art works at the event. The T’ART zine will further explore the theme of the T’ART exhibition by those who participate but also may organically grow as it responds to the exhibition while being created in the gallery space.
T’ART will take place at the Bones and Pearl Gallery, part of the Bones and Pearl studios and creative hub in North London and will be installed by experienced curators. Invitations, press releases, promotion and opening reception/private view will be organized to the highest spec. along with the usual Sweet ‘Art freebies and surprises!
There is no fee to submit your work and those whose work is accepted will be asked to pay an exhibition fee of £35. You can read more about our fees and selection process on our website.
Works will need to be available and dropped off at the venue on Monday 6th of March between 9am-11am. The arty party will be on the evenings of the 8th of March (women’s day!) from 6pm and the event will run for the 7th, 8th and 9th of March. Works will need to be picked up from the venue on the 9th of March between 5pm and 7pm.
Submissions Deadline: 17th February at 5pm
