Catalyst Arts | Michele Horrigan Curates Members Show 2015 | Open-Call



Catalyst Arts are delighted to announce that Irish artist/curator Michele Horrigan will be curating this years Members Show, 2015.

Deadline: 07/04/15

For over twenty years, Catalyst Arts has followed a path of improvisation in its unsure, yet always invigorating existence. Secretly, no one really knows what lies ahead – its programme, community and members never harden into stable or institutional values. Instead Catalyst floats upon the transitory and provisional nature of contemporary urban life in Belfast – always provoking and alluding to the need for agitation and continual deviation from hegemonical structures imposed on culture.

Our 2015 members show seeks to further develop these themes. Curated by Michele Horrigan, artworks will be considered for their role in exploring unnoticed situations within the city, the gallery space and the further frameworks that both contain and allow personal agency and freedom. How can Catalyst continue to offer a diverse platform for these discussions? As ever in its history, let its members decide! We welcome new proposals and existing artworks in all media.

Submissions must include: C.V | 250 word statement/proposal | Bio. | 5-10 Images in PDF format
