Artist Open Call – The Gallery Season 3

The Gallery is a new kind of cultural institution without walls that challenges traditional models of viewing art. A major project, The Gallery exhibits contemporary art in public spaces traditionally reserved for advertising, to stimulate debate about the important questions of our time.   

Launching September 2023, Season 3 of The Gallery will continue this mission, inviting artists from around the world to respond to the theme:  No But Where Are You Really From?   

“We live in a globalised world of international travel and mass migration. Over the centuries peoples, animals, plants and pathogens have continuously crisscrossed the Earth’s oceans and continents. So, what part does place still play in identity?”   

The Gallery’s Season 3 theme encourages artists to ask timely questions about origin, inclusivity, belonging, transition and exchange. The theme also invites artists to consider what it feels like to be excluded or denied on the one hand, and accepted and embraced on the other.  

Applications close 23:59 BST, Sunday 23 April 2023. 

The call out is open to practitioners aged 18+, working at any level, including students. This initiative exists to champion ground-breaking artworks by artists at any stage of their practice.  Artists can be based anywhere in the world. 

Successful artists receive:  
– A fee of £2,000
