Deadline for submissions: Wednesday 21 November, 5pm.
Pallas Projects/Studios’ Artist-Initiated Projects, is an Arts Council funded, open-submission, annual gallery programme that is highly accessible to artists, presented in the context of an established gallery space with a dedicated tradition towards the development of artists in a peer-led, supportive environment. Its focus is on early/mid career, emerging artists and recent graduates, who demonstrate their potential with the quality of their work, and their ambition to challenge and test their practice in the public realm. A relatively short turnaround time of 3–9 months, allows the programme to be responsive, reflect what artists are currently making, and encourages experimentation and risk-taking.
Submissions from visual artists are now sought via open call for up to 10 x 3-week exhibitions, between February–November 2019. Solo, 2-person, collaborative and group exhibitions will be considered, and we welcome projects/bodies of work that are completed/near completion, or work in progress with clearly expressed outcomes, across all contemporary visual art forms.
This programme of self-directed projects will receive an artists fee/production budget, publicity, invigilation and other supports. Artists are asked to include in their proposal an outreach aspect which considers different audiences/communities of interest, such as but not limited to: events, workshops, talks, performances, and accompanying texts. Gallery visits by colleges and local schools will be arranged, and artists are assisted in aspects such as inviting curators, and documenting their work.
