ebc019: photography and print

deadline 23:59 Sunday 11 March 2018

please note- this is a call for works of photography and print ONLY. see below for exhibition details.



we are based at the trinity centre, easton - a converted grade II listed church. for this reason we cannot damage the walls (i.e. drill / nail into).

for ebc019 we will be working with artist Sean Kerr to construct a bespoke method of display. Sean is the former curator of secret garden party and he works closely with Studio TAC http:/www.studiotac.co.uk/

selected artists will be working directly with Sean to develop a unique way of viewing the work. in other words, selected works will not be traditionally hung on white walls – please bear this in mind when applying.

the structure will be an exhibited artwork in its own right, and Sean one of the exhibiting artists.



ebc019 will run from the 4-6 may 2018.

ebc currently receives no outside funding. we hope to be funded for this exhibition and are currently in the process of applying for money. however we are committed to paying artists and can promise an artist fee of £45 per exhibiting artist, which we hope will be useful for covering some travel costs at least. we will aim to provide free accommodation for artists travelling from outside of bristol.
