Call for Artists: Lucky Dip – AIR Gallery, Altrincham

Call for Artists: Lucky Dip

We propose to host an exhibition based purely on the theme of chance! Artists will be selected at random for a unique group show in March 2020. By removing the control attached to Open Call selection, artists will be purely chosen by chance. This gives every artist equal opportunity to have their works elected for the show regardless of background, education, status or connections. It also removes part of the curatorial control, making for a more challenging and interesting resulting show. We accept any contemporary artwork, any medium and any theme.

How does it work? Every artist who completes an entry form will have their name entered into a ‘Lucky Dip’ draw. Once the deadline has passed, 20 names will be drawn at random.

Each artist can enter up to five works for consideration. Upon successful selection, we will review the artists chosen and artworks will be selected by our in-house curators based on their suitability with the other artists in the show. It is likely that most successful artists will have between one-three works selected for exhibition.

Entry fee is £5.

Cash prizes to be won!

**DEADLINE: 26 January 2020
