open call for artists: Art+Text @ 44AD artspace

Deadline Monday 23 January 2017

Fee 1st work accepted: £15. Each additional work: £5 each

The relationship between art and text is rich and varied – from Rene Magritte to Jasper Johns, Jenny Holzer to Martin Creed – the decision to use text in art is a powerful and often provocative choice.

For further inspiration we have found some digital letters to play with at LanguageIsAVirus and PostSecret

There are endless possibilities between a visual art practice and writing, text and words!

As one informs the other, keep your Playfulness and think outside the letter.

Curated by Kelly O'Brien and Sveta Antonova.

All media encouraged including video, performance, installation, prints, painting, books, new media and sculpture.

Please email a digital image of your entry and a brief Artist Statement to by the 22nd January 2017.
