TESTING

Opening: 4th May 2017 6pm – 9pm

Exhibition runs: 4th – 11th May

Catalyst Arts are excited to announce the open-call for it’s Members Show 2017, TESTING.

TESTING aims to give space to explore alternative perspectives and new approaches within your practice. We want you to play devil’s advocate with your usual working method, tease it, play with it, wriggle around it, blow it up and stick it back together, trick it and confront it. Without testing new ideas we run the chance of getting too comfortable and of missing that which could possibly lead to a more creative outcome. For this show we ask our members to see Catalyst Arts as a testing ground for experimentation and to showcase new perspectives and possibilities within your  work.

Each member is eligible to submit one proposal of work in any medium that you feel tests and explores the boundaries of your practice.

To be part of TESTING applicants must be a members of Catalyst Arts.

    Hello Catalyst – this is probably a daft question, but I’m new to your submission process : for Testing, do you initially just want a proposal or do you select from ‘things’ actually physically delivered to the gallery on the 2nd/3rd?
    I’ve been trying to work this out from the description on your website but then thought it might be simpler to write
    yours

  2. Hi Mark,

    If you are a member you can just drop of the work at the gallery or post it. There is no selection process, as it is a perk of membership to exhibit in the show. If you need to become a member you can do this on the membership section of the website of call into the gallery to fill in a form,

    All the best,

    Conor / Catalyst Arts
