Gallery Open Call: Eight


Eight, on Dublin’s Dawson Street, have announced details on an open call for artists to apply to for their 2017/18 programme. In recent years the gallery has hosted compact but expansive shows by a number of key emerging artists, including Eleanor McCaughey, James Kirwan, David Lunney and more. As well as these solo shows the space has worked in conjunction with other bodies, most notably with Basic Space Dublin for Culture Night last year, to host engaging group shows, INFRA in the case of Basic Space Dublin.

Full details of the submission requirements can be found here, with an expressive GIF from the aforementioned Eleanor McCaughey below. They haven’t announced a closing date but why mess about, get your ideas in now! Solo and groups shows are encouraged to apply.
