Call for Submissions: 2010/2011 Exhibitions - Hayward Touring, London (UK)

Deadline: September 21, 2009 by 5pm

Hayward Touring invites proposals for an exhibition to be shown in four UK galleries in 2010/11.

You don't have to be a professional exhibition maker to propose an idea. We welcome innovative proposals from artists, writers and imaginative thinkers of all kinds, as well as from people working in galleries and museums. It may be a show you have never seen but would like to; there may be a theme or tendency in contemporary art and visual culture that you think deserves to be explored in new ways. Simply describe your project in no more than 600 words, and accompany it with an initial list of artists and a selection of images.

The exhibition will tour to: John Hansard Gallery, Southampton; QUAD, Derby; Oriel Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno; Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum.

The successful applicant will receive an honorarium of £3,000 plus £1,000 for research and travel expenses. S/he will work in collaboration with Hayward Touring and the participating galleries on an exhibition of around 130-150 square meters, to open in July 2010. The exhibition budget will allow for some international loans and a modest publication.

Download the application form and guidelines from the website www.southbankcentre.co.uk/visual- arts/hayward-touring or contact curatorialopen@soutbankcentre.co.uk for details.

This is brilliant! I'll soon be moving to London and trying to find some connections with the artist community there. I'll be sure to follow your blog. It's already turning out to be very helpful!
