‘Not a cloud in the sky’ – A Convenience Gallery open call exhibition about Parks in a park.
Convenience is hitting the road again and this time we are on a trip over to Birkenhead Park, In July for their 175th Birthday, and bringing some programming along for the ride. Birkenhead Park is a place of historical and International significance as the first municipal park in the world and we’re really excited to bring a project and artists to their visitor centre space.
This will be a collective exhibition about all things parks. Along with a few surprise bits of programming too.
To curate this exhibition they’re hosting a call for artists in the north west. For every new space they go to, they like to lead an open call to invite new artists, ideas and people, to shape their programming and make sure it’s reflective and responsive to the community we sit in.
The brief is simple: Art about Parks. What is your experience of parks? Do you have a favourite? Think about memories and moments, a feeling, a funny story, nostalgia of youth, the wildlife, habitats, design, ponds, trees, activities, community groups, clubs, history, or something else that relates to parks personally for you, they’d love for you to submit. They want this to be a fun and engaging exhibition for people in the local community.
They’re looking to feature 10 – 20 artworks for this opportunity.
Closing date: 1st June
Responses to call out by: 9th June.
Show runs: July 16th – 29th
