Opportunity: RSA Annual Exhibition 2021 – Call to Artists

10th December 2020

Online submissions is now open for the RSA Annual Exhibition 2021.

The RSA Annual Exhibition is the most extensive exhibition of contemporary art and architecture in Scotland. Having been a mainstay of the academy’s calendar since its inception 195 years ago, the Annual Exhibition has evolved over the years, showcasing Scottish art alongside invited international artists, often including topical or political elements, to give an uncensored, independent voice to artists on issues that matter to them. For the first time in its history the 2020 Annual Exhibition was mounted online only due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however we aim to return with a physical exhibition in the RSA galleries from 4 April – 9 May 2021, with all necessary safety precautions.

After the success of its re-introduction in 2019, the Open Art element will return once again in 2021 as a vital component of the RSA Annual Exhibition. Online submission is now open for the 2021 exhibition for works of any scale and in any fine art medium.

To submit work to be considered for the exhibition artists must register and complete the online application process at www.royalscottishacademy.oess1.uk

Artists may submit up to TWO works of any dimensions in any fine art medium, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, film, installation and performance.

An entry fee (inclusive of VAT) is required for each work: £15 per work / students £10 per work. There is also a £10 hanging fee for any work hung in the exhibition.

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday 3 February 2021 at 5pm.

Please read through the REGULATIONS and FAQs on our website before submitting work.
