Deadline Saturday 30 June 2018
The Plough Arts Centre is offering the opportunity of a show in the main gallery from 11 Jan – 9 Feb 2019.
The Plough runs St Anne’s, a 14th century chapel that now functions as an arts and community centre with a year long programme of events. As part of that show we would like the artist to present some work/research that relates to the building and its history – in particular its relationship with the Huguenot refugees. We have a £1000 fee for the artist/s to pursue that line of enquiry (which includes all potential production and transport costs.) We have a separate print and workshop budget that is part of our offer as an exhibition space.
We plan to put together a heritage project around St Anne’s and this commission is part of an investigative process leading towards what we hope will be a thorough exploration.
St Anne’s has an extraordinary history – apart from hosting the Huguenot refugees, John Gay, author of the Beggar’s Opera, went to school there. The Beggar’s Opera which set new words to folk music can be seen as an early example of appropriation.
Further information can be found here.
Please send links to examples of your work together with a brief proposal to Peter Stiles via firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of June. If you would like to discuss your proposal ring 01805 622552 from Monday to Wednesday.
