Open Call for Visual Artists
2020 In The Bubble is a project for visual artists (photographers and videographers) to share what we have created over the past 12 months. The exhibition will be a record of the challenges we have faced as a community, and a reflection of our experiences during this time.
The work can be any genre of photography from photojournalism to conceptual and fine art, and should reflect your experience during the year 2020.
The project will culminate in an exhibition at Turks Head Gallery, opening on the 30th of April 2021.
We would love you to be involved in this project and exhibition, please read on for more information, and details about how you can take part.
