UnderExposed's first open call, Draft Knot Wake, reflects the unity and support in the art world that they aim to foster. The open call is for photography-based work around the theme of togetherness. In response to the current competitive art sector, you are urged to explore photographically an alternative that is driven by human relations.
"UnderExposed, founded in 2018, is an inclusive art platform based in Brighton. We aim to showcase artwork in alternative spaces, exchange ideas and knowledge, and encourage collaboration. As a photography-based collective, we engage with any artist willing to share their practice. Aiming to strengthen community values by developing a network of artists that can support each other, UnderExposed is a community-driven intervention run by and for under-represented and emerging artists."
All submitted images that meet the requirements will be displayed in public spaces in various locations internationally (including London, Berlin and Nagoya). They will be displayed for as long as possible (local legalities permitting), photographed and documented on UnderExposed platforms.
Submission should include 150 words about the piece, 1 photography based image, paper size, social media handles, equality monitoring form, image release form.
Submissions should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: Sunday 6 May, 10am
Artists will be notified on the location of their work by Friday 25 May.
