Open Call | Light Eye Mind Gallery Exhibition, London


Application deadline: 20 September

An open call for an exhibition at Light Eye Mind Gallery in Finsbury Park, London exploring group exhibitions as teams.

Sid and Jim are seeking artworks for an exhibition at Light Eye Mind Gallery in Finsbury Park, London exploring group exhibitions as teams.

Light Eye Mind is in a very interesting position geographically; being so close to the Emirates Stadium there is a meeting of two dedicated factions of interest; Art and Sport, Art fans and Sports Fans. While the two groups don’t need to be pushed together it’s interesting to consider the similarities and differences; how much of the mind set of one party falls into the same basket as the other.

The gallery will act as the space where conversations happen before the final event; the changing room. This is where teamwork is visible and perhaps when it is most effective. Running off the idea of teamwork and the space of the Footballer’s (or general sportsperson’s) dressing room, we are combining the idea of gallery and changing room, or at least, what those sorts of space represents. Artists will be asked to decide what their art is in the role of the team, this can be anything they decide, from making work that’s referential to another artist in the exhibition, to providing a public service that gives some traction to the proceedings of the show. It’s up to them to consider their position within the team of the group show.

Unfortunately this is an unfunded artist-run project, Sid and Jim are unable to pay artists a fee but hope to promote them and their work and possibly collaborate in the future.
