The inaugural Craft Biennale Scotland, to take place at the City Art Centre from May to July 2018, is now open for applications. With the theme Response to Place, this is an open international exhibition, that will be selected from applications by four curators from Scotland, Norway, Korea and Australia.
Craft Biennale Scotland is the idea of Tina Rose, founder and director of Really Interesting Objects CIC, an enterprise established to ‘bring together quality crafts practices with innovative approaches to engaging new audiences’.
Artists are invited to submit work that responds to a place where they live, remember or imagine, or that contributes to individual identity or nationality, and ways in which we create and express our ‘place’ in the world.
Responses may be overlapping and multi-faceted, and might for example, include visual or other sensory responses to their environment; local materials and indigenous craft practices; cultural and ceremonial traditions; experiences related to migration, political or social upheaval; local and social history; geography; archaeology or how particular forms have developed through interaction with materials or have been designed to perform a particular function.
To check the guidelines and timetable, and to register and complete the application form, please visit the website.
Deadline for Entries: Friday 1 December 2017, 5pm GMT
