Outside In is excited to announce details of its next exhibition call out ‘Look Closer, Think Bigger’. This exhibition will open this summer at Fabrica, Brighton centre for contemporary arts. The exhibition will feature work by two Outside In artists, one responding to the theme of large and one to the theme of miniature. 

Here are answers to common questions about the exhibition and how to submit your work to it. Please click on the questions to see answers

The theme of this exhibition is large and miniature artworks. We invite artists to submit artwork that fits into either of these two categories.

 The exhibition will explore extremes of scale by creating small intimate spaces to display miniature work, contrasted with large artworks that resonate with Fabrica’s unique setting, an unconverted 19th century chapel.

As well as challenging perceptions of what types and sizes of artwork should be displayed together, this exhibition will also highlight why and how artists choose to work with scale, including how the space that artists have access to create work may influence the size of the work they are able to produce.
