Bridewell Studios and Gallery would like to invite artists to
submit work for Possible Impossibilities, a contemporary drawing
show to be held in conjunction with The Liverpool Art Prize and
Liverpool Art Month. Artists can submit up to 3 images of their
work for selection. There is no size restriction, but artists may want
to bear in mind that the curators are looking to create a busy hang.
There is no restriction on media or format – 2D, 3D or time-based:
our definition of drawing and drawing practices is a very open one.
Workshops and site-specific interventions will also be considered for
inclusion. The Bridewell is a Grade II listed late Victorian former police
station on Prescot St. Liverpool, opposite the Royal Hospital chimney
stack. Submissions or proposals that respond to the site are welcome.
Submitted work will be selected by the Bridewell Gallery
committee. Normally one artwork from each successful admission
will be selected, however multiples will be taken into consideration.
Successful artists will be notified by email on Wednesday 8th May
2013 and requested to deliver their artworks to Bridewell Studios
no later than 5pm on Monday 13th May 2013. The exhibition will
be widely publicised and posted on the Bridewell website and
social media networks. Work will be on display from 17th – 31st
May 2013 and needs to be made available for the whole of the
period from 13th – 31st May 2013 inclusive.
