Posted on

Society of Scottish Artists and Visual Arts Scotland today (3 Aug 2017) announced a ‘Call for Entries’ for artists from across the world to apply to be part of the biggest show of contemporary art in Scotland.

Working together for the first time, the two leading arts organisations are joining forces to present an ambitious one-off collaborative exhibition celebrating the best in contemporary and applied art.

The exhibition, entitled OPEN, will take place at the Scottish National Galleries RSA Building on Edinburgh’s Princes Street from 29 January – 9 March 2018.

​All artists are invited to submit work for consideration
There are TWO categories for artworks with separate deadline

Installation and New Media Submissions

Installation and site specific proposals, new media, audio and audio-visual works, interactive works and performance, film and animation. 
You should submit in this category if your work is site specific, has special installation or equipment requirements, is a performance or an unrealised idea that you will only create if selected for the exhibition. We encourage ambitious new artwork created specifically for the space, or existing artwork that is re-purposed for this exhibition.
