OPEN CALL for artists


Depictions Of Living – Art and Activism in time of climate crisis

Submission deadline extended until Friday Midday (8th November 2019)

Exhibition dates: Wed. 22nd Jan. – Wed. 29th January 2020


This call-out’s aim is to showcase recent works by contemporary and emerging artists confronting issues related to the climate crisis and life in the Anthropocene, as well as the creative approach within environmental movements (Greenpeace, Extinction Rebellion, School Strike, etc.) We are looking for artists working with any medium (painting, sculpture, photography, performance, video art, animation, film, documentaries, etc.)


This is an opportunity for artists, who in the core of their practice are exploring the challenges of global climate change and ecological destruction.

This exhibition will take place at the Art Pavilion, Mile End, parallel to a range of interactive and participatory exhibition-related events such as workshops, talks, and film screenings over a week.


 (The participants will be informed of the events prior to the private view.)

– The Art Pavillion is fully accessible.


****** OUTDOOR SPACE ****** (In addition to the main gallery space):

We also have access to an outdoor space in front of the gallery. We are looking for performances/ Installations to take place in that space. Please send your submissions/proposals for the outdoor space via the links below, or email for more information.
