Opportunity : Call out for an exhibition at Fabrica, Brighton – ‘Look Closer, Think Bigger’

Fabrica gallery, Brighton

*Important announcement*

Due to the impact of the Coronavirus, Outside In and Fabrica would like to announce that the upcoming exhibition ‘Look Closer, Think Bigger’ will still go ahead but will be postponed till October 2021. However, artists can still submit work for this opportunity before the new deadline of 25th May 2020. The two selected artists will be announced in June 2020.

Outside In and Fabrica are excited to announce an opportunity for two Outside In artists to exhibit at  Fabrica in October 2021. The theme of this exhibition ‘Look Closer, Think Bigger’ is large and miniature artworks and we are inviting artists to submit artworks that fit 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, a former Regency church in the heart of Brighton. 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.

The two selected artists will each receive £1000 for exhibiting their work in the exhibition. There will also be a travel budget to support artists to visit Fabrica. 

 Artists are encouraged to submit artwork they have already produced that fits the theme of large and miniature. Fabrica’s distinctive setting can be also be used as inspiration and there is also the potential to create new work, further develop an existing work and/or assemble work on site in response to the building.

The opportunity is open to artists based in the UK and Republic of Ireland who have an Outside In online gallery and fit the criteria of the charity.
