Crate Curatorial Open

Paid curatorial open call in Margate, Kent

Deadline: 18th July
Application fee: None

CRATE Curatorial Open
CRATE is inviting proposals from artists and curators to research, test and create a new curatorial project using Crate’s project space for a four week period between 17th October and 14th November. All proposals must have a strong public outcome and include a Crate Conversations session.

A fee of £1000 will be awarded to the chosen applicant, there will be a production budget of £1,450, travel and accommodation will be funded up to £900. Crate will provide promotional and technical support.

Crate Project Space in Margate, an artist-led organisation supporting fine artists’ research and practice. Crate aims to embed research culture in arts practice creating activities that support critical discourse, artist development, building capacity, sustaining networks and strengthening local community relationships.

Crate provides affordable studios and project space for visual artists offering a high quality program to encourage research, experimentation and collaboration in a professional and supportive environment promoting critical debate, the exchange and testing of ideas without prescribed outcomes.

Set up in 2013 now with six full time studio members, two project spaces staging over 60 successful critically challenging projects, exhibitions and awards e.g Jeremy Deller and Turner Contemporary, Whitstable Biennale events and La Plate-Forme Dunkerque exchange programme. We host a broad range of practitioners at different levels of their careers and have a track record of achieving excellence and recognition in their particular practice fields gaining critical recognition, winning regular commissions in the public realm, museums and galleries, undertaking residencies, working with community groups acting locally, nationally and internationally partnering with UCA Canterbury, FRAC and Art Connexion, Lille amongst others.

A new curatorial group has been established that will be responsible for creating a new programme ensuring that the high quality output is maintained alongside opportunities for meaningful engagement offering welcoming and generous opportunities for public engagement demystifying the arts whilst remaining critically challenging. Crate is a prime example of the burgeoning creative art cluster in Margate increasing cultural capital and production.

Crate Conversations: a membership scheme for peer to peer dialogue between local Kent-based artists and curators. Individual artists, from the group, or that the group invites, will present and discuss their work in an informal setting.


Solo exhibition by the applicant will not be considered as we would like to see connections being made with other artists; the exhibition can include work made by the applicant.

We would like to see a strong research question or thematic idea

There must be a public outcome, ideally an exhibition with accompanying events

Applications by collectives will be considered butthe Artist’s fee is fixed and would have to be split.

Things to consider:

What will the public outcome be and what will be achieved by this?

Who is your audience and how will you engage with them?

How will your process be documented?

An estimated budget or idea of where the production budget will be spent

How this opportunity will benefit your practice

What relevant experience you have had that will help you deliver the project

The Ghost Tide

Artist submissions sought for The Ghost Tide - a group exhibition at Thames-Side Studios London, curated by Monika Bobinska and Sarah Sparkes

The show evokes ghosts as a migratory tide washed up along the shore of the Thames, historical and cultural baggage in tow. Runs 20 October - 4 November 2018.

Deadline : 29 June 2018
Application fee: none



Artist submissions sought for The Ghost Tide - a group exhibition at Thames-Side Studios London, curated by Monika Bobinska and Sarah Sparkes. The show evokes ghosts as a migratory tide washed up along the shore of the Thames, historical and cultural baggage in tow. Runs 20 October - 4 November 2018.

The Ghost Tide - a group exhibition curated by Monika Bobinska and Sarah Sparkes - evokes the migratory tide of ghosts washed up along the shore of the Thames, their historical baggage in tow.

Ghosts exist as an idea – ghost, spirit or immaterial part of a deceased person - across cultures all around the world and throughout recorded history.

The Ghost Tide invites artists to re-imagine the ghost as a cultural phenomenon, presenting works which explore ghosts from diverse organised and vernacular belief systems.

The show includes sculpture, installation, film, sound, performance and wall based works, as well as a number of public events.

The Ghost Tide’s location on the Thames, in a fast-changing area of the city, alludes to the presence of artists in this part of London, as a migratory tide of creative flotsam and jetsam which ebbs and flows as the city gentrifies and develops.

We are interested in works of a material nature – sculpture, installation, wall based works etc, though we do have room for some audio visual pieces.

We welcome artists response to the following, but are also open to other interpretations:

  • How the idea and aesthetics of the ghost or spirit manifests in different cultures
  • The integration of ghost cultures across countries both in belief systems, vernacular beliefs and popular culture
  • Ghosts within cultural groups that have been dispossessed, repressed and marginalised
  • Ghosts in border regions, edge-lands, margins
  • Ghosts and water, maritime histories, folklore, ghost stories
  • Channelling ghosts through technological and physiological means
  • New visualisations of contemporary international ghosts
  • Works which have a direct reference to the locale of the gallery – the river Thames being a trade and migratory route into the city/ country. Today, London city airport is located just across the river. The Thames barrier is close by, built to hold back the flood tide. Warehouses once containing manufacturing industry are now home to a nebulous, temporary and migratory group – artists.

About the Curators

Sarah Sparkes is an artist curator. She leads the visual arts and creative research project GHost, curating an on-going programme of exhibitions, performances and interdisciplinary seminars interrogating the idea of the ghost. GHost events have been supported by Folkestone Biennial, University of the Arts, University of London, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), NTMoFA (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts), Inspiral London and Arts Council of England. Sparkes has published chapters on the GHost project and has lectured extensively on this subject. Her work The GHost Formula, 2016, commissioned by FACT, recently toured to NTMoFA as part of the exhibition No Such Thing As Gravity curated by Rob la Frenais. She is currently undertaking an artist residency, together with Ian Thompson, at Allenheads Contemporary Arts In Northumberland.

Monika Bobinska is the director of CANAL, which organizes exhibitions and art projects in a variety of settings. She is the founder of the North Devon Artist Residency, launching in 2018.

Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale

Major Changes Ahead for Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (GICB)!

Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale

The Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (GICB), which celebrates its tenth edition in 2019, is expected to undergo significant changes, especially in regard to its “international competition”. The GICB aims to establish a platform dedicated to promoting communication and exchanges between artists and the public. The upcoming biennale will present diverse programs such as the academic symposium and workshop in a comprehensive, multitiered format within the framework of the international competition, as opposed to the past in which the biennale hosted programs individually.

The GICB International Competition 2019 – as an exhibition is a gateway for newly emerging artists to acquire a presence in the global art scene – will offer diversified support programs that will help artists expand their world view. It will continue to retain its tradition as a “competition,” though with improvements in institutional arrangements including application conditions, exhibition format, screening criteria, and support programs, yet simultaneously aim to present a new paradigm for art events, as an “international exhibition” leading the trends in ceramics and an “art forum” bringing together workshops, performances, and seminars.

GICB International Competition Exhibition

• Exhibition Period : August 2 – November 10, 2019 (tentative)
• Exhibition Place : 2, 3 Gallery, Icheon World Ceramic Center
• Number of Participating Artists
- Online Exhibition : No more than 300 artists who have been selected from the 1st round of portfolio screening

The prize money can be claimed in the currency of choice of the winner, with the conversion being made on the basis of the closing exchange rate of the day the award is granted. The prize winners of Korean nationality or those who hold the nationality of a country with which Korea does not have an established tax treaty, will receive the amount remaining after tax has been deducted.
The cash prizes for the Grand Prize and Excellence Prize include the purchase value, and therefore the prize-winning works become the property of KOCEF.

All artists participating in the offline exhibition and a partial number of artists participating in the online exhibition will be invited to participate in the inauguration of GICB 2019, workshops, symposiums, and local networking programs.
