Birmingham Contemporary Art Forum is delighted to announce it will be hosting The Event’s third bi-annual visual art festival from 21 – 30 October 2011. As part of The Event 2011 Grand Union will be hosting a group exhibition of a curatorial relay, or conversation between exhibition and selection.
Alluding to the theme of The Event, Plato’s Symposium, the exhibition will be formed as a space of multiple voices; different positions coming together and merging indistinctly to link back to a common thread.
To form part of this process Grand Union’s Helen Brown is inviting submissions of flm, video, animation, documentary, features and shorts to be presented as a one-off multi-screen installation at Grand Union on Friday 28 October.
Submissions should be on DVD with title, name and any supporting information included.
Please note that submissions can be of any length, but all presented submissions may be subject to editing.
Please only submit copies not original or unique material, as unfortunately submissions cannot be returned.
Send submissions to:
19 Minerva Works,
Fazeley Street,Birmingham B5 5RS
Grand Union is an artist-led initiative that supports the development of artists and curators and aims to establish and nurture dialogue between contemporary visual artists, and local, national and international art organisations.
Established by a group of artists and curators in Birmingham, UK, Grand Union is a unique project that houses eight purpose built studios and a project space. The project space provides a platform for a diverse and exciting programme of events and exhibitions while the studios provide a professional and secure working environment.
