Open Call for Exhibitions | Nova Galerija DDT, Trbovlje, Slovenia

Submission deadline: 31 January

Proposals are invited for exhibitions to be held at the Nova galerija DDT in Trbovlje in 2017. Nova galerija of Delavski dom Trbovlje operates in the premises of former boiler room and coal depot. The space is purposed for exhibitions of visual contemporary art, with the emphases on technologically-supported projects emplying new technologies for their presentation.

The gallery is spatially conceived in two parts: the upper level of the gallery pursues the classic principle of a white cube, while the lower level retains its original industrial appearance. In this way we find even the white cube, at symbolic level, allocated within a wider concept of the location into which it’s placed.

Proposals are welcome from individual artists and art collectives/groups whose creative production lies in the field of fine/visual arts, new media, audio-visual, performative and other visual practices. Priority will be given to new media and contemporary works.

Application content:

– clearly defined contextual concept/content of the project,
– defined framework concerning the project’s execution and its technical layout,
– mention of the authors and the bearers/executants of the project, including their brief bio/CV; please note that in case of an artist with no curator, the artist or head of the project is bound to lead and carry out the project him/herself,
– photographic material, when available (low resolution is sufficient for the purpose of this application!), – contacts details (name, e-mail address, phone number.) of the head of the person responsible for the project.
