The Coast is Queer - Open Call for LGBTQ+ artists Deadline 10/04/23

For its summer exhibition in Brighton, the Socially Engaged Art Salon seeks artworks related to LGBTQAI+ and the seaside. The exhibition will take place at the new LGBTQ+ Centre in Brighton and online and will include a catalogue. The call is open to any artist above 18, UK-based or international, for the online exhibition. Brighton, Hove, and the South-East will be given priority for the on-site show. Local artists can also propose a workshop or any live activity. The work can be in any 2D media, including photography, films, video art, digital art, painting and illustration is preferred. The submission of work and participation in the exhibition is free. Pending a successful funding application, the artists exhibiting at the gallery will receive a £50 honorarium. We are looking for incredible work, exciting, erotic, and queer. We love socially and politically engaged work. You do not have to identify as LGBTQ+ to submit work, but we expect the works will have some social/political/personal/poetic connections to LGBTQAI+ culture.

The judging panel will include curators for Brighton and the South-East leading galleries, art organisations, academics and LGBTQAI+ organisations.

The exhibition will take place in August-September.

The deadline for submitting the work is April 10th.
