Open Call | Not Just Collective Exhibition, Liverpool


Application deadline: 22 December

Not Just Collective calls for artists to exhibit as part of our show, Thresholds: The Adjacent Possible. The exhibition will be held in February 2018 at the Tapestry, Liverpool, an exciting new space hosting a diverse range of creative activities.

Artists are invited to respond to themes of borders, barriers, doorways and liminality. Work confirmed so far takes inspiration from urban development and the cultural exchange resulting from Liverpool’s role as a port. Also considered are thresholds that are less-than-tangible – social, political and spiritual – and the well-established or newly-born practices and rituals that may develop during times of transition.

Work in any media will be considered. Artists will arrange own transportation of work.

To apply email NotJustCollective@gmail.com with:
• Details of the proposed work, including medium and dimensions (where possible)
• Images of the work, or previous work if not yet completed
• Any other supporting information you feel may be relevant

Not Just Collective are a group of artists and creative practitioners based in, or connected to, the Liverpool area. The collective’s first exhibition was in January 2013 at Domino Gallery, Liverpool, and since then we have continued to grow, holding exhibitions in galleries and non-traditional spaces across the region, including Camp and Furnace, Arena Gallery, the Williamson Tunnels, and a terraced house in L8. The group is diverse, consisting of artists with varying levels of experience, and working in a range of disciplines. Because of this, we are held together not by common practice, but by a common aim to support and promote the development of art in Liverpool and the wider region.
