Keyhole Gallery: call for expressions of interest

Keyhole Gallery: call for expressions of interest

By 14th September 2016 Exhibitions, News No Comments

Our Keyhole Gallery is, by quite a distance, the smallest of the various exhibition spaces that make up Bank Street Arts. Currently home to Laura Smith’s Mania, we’re always interested in hearing from artists, makers or curators who think that they could do something interesting with the space.

The Keyhole Gallery would offer potential exhibitors a certain amount of flexibility but it is very small: you can’t actually get in it as such, and its contents can only be viewed through three keyholes:

We’ve got a very open mind as to the sort of work that the Keyhole Gallery could house, and we’re certainly open to it being adapted if we were presented with a strong enough idea. What’s a given is an ability to be resourceful, imaginative, and able to work within rather more narrow constraints than is often the case. For such a small- tiny– space, the Keyhole Gallery definitely represents quite a big challenge.

Any member of Bank Street Arts is welcome to submit a proposal. If you’re not currently a member you can sign up here. As a genuinely independent arts centre, we’re self-reliant, and becoming a member is one of the ways that you can support us and the work we do. In return, membership offers all kinds of benefits, such as free entry into our regular members’ exhibitions, reduced commission on gallery sales, discounts on gallery and meeting room hire, the ability to vote in our AGM, and a concession on all ticketed events.

To submit a proposal, email residencies@bankstreetarts.com with a brief outline of what you’ve got in mind.
