Open Call | MAC International 2018 (Submission Fee)


Application deadline: 27 April

MAC International is the largest arts prize in Ireland, offering artists from around the world an opportunity to exhibit at the MAC, with a prize of £20,000 awarded to the artist deemed to have made an outstanding contribution to the exhibition. MAC International will run from 9 November 2018 – 31 March 2019.

Spanning all three of our galleries, MAC International provides a truly global perspective on contemporary art practice. The 2016 MAC International exhibition featured work by artists based in Northern Ireland, the UK and Europe, as well as work from as far afield as the USA, Iceland, and Brazil.

Subject to the availability of funding, the MAC will cover the cost of transport of works excluding crating. If an artist is required to be on site to install a work MAC will cover flights, accommodation and per diem. The MAC will cover all installation and equipment requirements necessary for the presentation of work but will not cover the cost of production. Artists selected for the exhibition who wish to attend the launch will have one nights accommodation covered.

Please note there is a submission fee of £20 to apply.
