Call for Submissions: ‘Take me there’ pop-up exhibition


The theme of Take me there is ‘Belonging’, speaking to the desire many individuals have to be taken to a place where they can feel whole, where they truly belong.


Artists: Call for Submissions
Juried Student Competition
Closing Date: 20 April 2018
University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin


Power and Vision: The Camera as Political Technology, a CRASSH Graduate Research Group, is seeking submissions for a pop-up exhibition at Heong Gallery, Downing College, Cambridge.

The exhibition will be made up of works produced by students at the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin, selected via a juried competition judged by the members of Power and Vision.

The theme of the exhibition, entitled Take me there, is ‘Belonging’, speaking to the desire many individuals have to be taken to a place where they can feel whole, where they truly belong. The pop-up will coincide with the current exhibition at Heong Gallery, Stephen Chambers: The Court of Redonda, which touches upon related themes such as identity, utopia, and place. Together, The Court of Redonda and Take me there will showcase the longing we share to feel at home somewhere. Although ephemeral in nature, this utopic pop-up exhibition will properly showcase the multiculturalism of Cambridge, allowing visitors to experience where we all wish we belonged.

Detailed images, size/medium specifications, and a brief description of proposed works must be submitted by 20 April 2018 to Jessica Fernández de Lara (jaf83@cam.ac.uk) and Katie Mato (kam95@cam.ac.uk) using the subject ‘Take me there Entry’. Various art forms are very welcome, preferably in small-scale, including but not limited to oil on canvas, photography (polaroid photographs included), short written material, calligraphy, pen and ink on paper, sculpture, and works utilising mixed-media. Please contact us if you have any questions.
