The wall in our atrium is easily the largest single exhibition space in Bank Street Arts. After a relatively quiet couple of years, it’s a space that we’ve recently been making more of: resident Bryan Eccleshall exhibited his TRIO project on our atrium wall in October, and fellow resident Chris Graham will be occupying the space throughout autumn and most of winter:
We’re very keen to hear proposals from anyone with an interest in exploring the atrium wall’s possibilities once Chris’s occupation has drawn to a close. Measuring around 4.5 m x 4.5 m and featuring four horizontal hanging wires, the atrium wall can easily accommodate physical work of a fairly large scale. We also have the facilities to project, so are particularly keen to consider proposals from filmmakers and artists working with digital (or analogue) media. The atrium wall is below a conservatory, so is exposed to plenty of natural light. We don’t have the means to totally blackout the space, but are- to some extent- able to restrict the amount of light that enters the atrium.
We’ll accept proposals for work in any medium; the only requirement is that to submit you need to be a member of Bank Street Arts. 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 help us to support artists and creatives in the city and beyond. 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.
