Open Call For Lens Based Artists To Exhibit In Busy Brighton Gallery Window Space

Fabrica, Brighton's Centre for Contemporary Art, has issued an open call for artists to submit work to be displayed in the large scale window of the city centre art gallery.

The In Between Gallery is a temporary exhibition platform for Fabrica's picture window in central Brighton. 

This initiative is now in its third year and previous artists have included Julien Bonnin, Alan Compton, Feiyi Winn and Clémentine Schneidermann and Charlotte James. 

Fabrica is partnering with Spectrum Photographic,Loupe Magazine and Brighton Photo Fringe to present the winning work, which could be by any UK-based artists who consider themselves to be early to mid-career. 

A panel from these organisations will decide on the winning work and an exhibition fee of £150 will be given to the exhibiting artist. All installation fees and printing will be covered separately from this fee.

The exhibition window faces directly onto Duke Street, one of Brighton's busiest pedestrianised quarters, located between The Lanes and Churchill Square, two very popular shopping destinations. 

The main city centre pubs and clubs are also nearby so the street is normally busy into the evening and throughout the night.

There is no theme to address but artists are asked to submit a work that will function well within the context of a large format print set within the window frame (see attached images). Measurements are approximately: 270cm x 225.5cm. 

The image would be exhibited from early December 2020 – mid-February 2021 when there is no large-scale exhibition in Fabrica's main space.  

Information about the selected artist and the image will be featured on the Fabrica website and via promotional materials produced by Fabrica, Brighton Photo Fringe and Spectrum for the duration of the exhibition. 

Submit now: - Deadline: 12 noon on Friday 30th October 2020
