Call for Artists: Expanded Drawing – AIR Gallery, Altrincham

Call for Artists: Expanded Drawing

AIR Gallery, Altrincham, invites establishing and emerging artists of all disciplines to consider and submit artworks centred around what drawing is today.

Everything has to begin somewhere and even with a mark, can drawing expand out both physically between and across mediums? Is drawing more than just marks on a page? How can we expand the notions of drawing through painting, sculpture, performance and social contexts?

We are looking for drawing based practices or works that centre around these questions, in both 2D + 3D contexts. Our aim is to entice conversation and narrative of drawing on and off the page in creative and imaginative ideas into the gallery space. Artists can enter any medium for this open call. Any works entered must have been made in the last three years and must be an expansion of drawing in some way – whether a cross-over with another medium (sculpture, performance, narratives around drawing etc.) or be an expansion on drawing in its own right.

We are also accepting proposals for public engagement events such as workshops, performances, talks and more.

If you are proposing a workshop please consider your audience, aims, outcome and budget before completing the online form.

DEADLINE: 8 February 2020
