PAINT LIKE YOU MEAN IT : IR11 PAINTING PRIZE OPEN CALL
15 March 2014
Application fee: £5
Interview Room 11 is seeking submissions for its first painting prize and exhibition, Paint Like You Mean It. This is an international call open to any artist aged 18 or over. Artists are invited to submit one work that they deem to be “painting”. This could be two or three dimensional work but must relate to the practice or medium of painting in some way. Work selected will demonstrate the versatility of paint, and show how contemporary artists are redefining the nature of the medium whilst still being rooted in the traditions and histories of painting. The dates for the exhibition are 28 May - 14 June 2014.
Paintings must not exceed 180 cm on their longest side. If successful, artists must cover shipping and transport costs to and from the gallery.
Entrants should submit one image in JPEG format and no larger than 3MB in size to email@example.com by midnight on 15 March 2014. Images submitted after this time will not be accepted. There is a £5 submission fee for all entries which can be paid via paypal account to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
All submissions will be judged by the IR11 gallery committee and a panel of external judges who will be announced soon. The winning artist will be invited to hold a solo show at IR11 in 2015. A full colour catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
