Services and Fees

We are responsible for covering every aspect of the exhibition. The only thing that the artists need to do, is to deliver/post their work to us, and enjoy the exhibition we have prepared for them. Our services include:

• Catalogues (hard copies) – the catalogues include a short bio/artist statement, image of the artists’ works, their email address and their website. Artists who live abroad, outside London or who are unable to attend, will receive a copy of the catalogue via post.
• e-Catalogues – a digital version of the catalogue with hyperlinks to each artist’s website. Those catalogues are easy to share, and they will be there for you to order one, in case you loose your original copy of the catalogue. See our e-Catalogues here.
• Installation of the work in the venue
• Storage of the artworks for up to one week after the end of the show. We can also post your work back to you (the artists are responsible for the postage expenses).
• Promotion of the exhibition and the participants through our mailing list (more than 2000 subscribers) and on social media.
• Documentation of the artists’ work in the venue.
• Transportation of your work from London to Prague and back.

Everyone can apply for free to participate in our shows and we do not take any commission from the sales! This is why an affordable fee will be applied only to selected artists, which will go towards the expenses of each show:

• Maintenance of the gallery space and our equipment
• Catering with professional staff that will offer drinks and snacks at the opening event
• Posters and catalogues design
• Printing costs (posters/catalogues/labels)
• Invigilators

The fees for the exhibition include VAT. No extra charges will be applied.
