THE GALLERY 4TH EXHIBITION SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT

We are pleased to announce that The Gallery’s 4th Exhibition Season will be located in Go Art Center in Shenzhen, China as part of Shenzhen Midea Art Festivial. The Gallery is an experimental project which examines the making of an exhibition and the role of social media in PR & marketing, interpretation and participation. The Gallery is an installation set up as a physical gallery and has one exhibition space with a fixed set of equipment (LCD TV,lighting, etc). Artists will be invited to submit proposals for full or half-day exhibitions during The Gallery installation.

The mission of The Gallery is to provide a unique platform for artists, filmmakers, creative writers, performers and art lovers to present their art works and practice through its innovative exhibition system. The whole process of every exhibition – installation, use of the exhibition system, viewing and participation etc – is part of the experience.

We are excited to announce that The Gallery is once again putting out a worldwide call for art submissions for this new exhibition season! The deadline for submission is 20th December, 2016.
