Outsider Craft: open call – deadline 30 October 2015

Outsider Craft combines Outside In's fourth triennial open art exhibition and Craftspace's touring exhibitions programme, which reflects developments in craft. The exhibition will showcase work by artists facing barriers to the art world for reasons including health, disability or social circumstance.

Submissions for the open callout are invited from UK based artists whose work is three or two dimensional and centres around craft processes. This includes: ceramics, furniture, glass, jewellery, leather, mechanical objects, metalwork, mixed media, textiles and forms of making linked to folk traditions. Materials used can include fabric, metal, clay, wood, paper, mixed media, found and recycled materials. Craft can be used to describe work that focus on materials, processes and the handmade; or perhaps work that unites technical skill and imagination resulting in a physical object.

The works selected through this open call out will be displayed pieces by historically renowned and invited contemporary outsider and self-taught artists. The exhibition will launch at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, from 12 March - 12 June 2016, and will be followed by a national tour.
