The exhibition opens on Wednesday 1st December at 6.30pm and continues until 11th Saturday December 2021.
Our Open Call exhibition, jointly presented by Mollie E Barnes from She Curates, CloverMill Artist Residency, Netherlands and Wilder Gallery, London, features the talents of Julia Bennet, Lee Cameron, Shaoyu Chen, Selby Hi, Zayne Al Qahtani, Gherdai Hassel, Tracey Slater and Salomé Wu.
The dynamic showcase is grounded in the collective’s commitment to openness, accessibility, engagement and a true championing of artists. The collaborative project sought to invite a diverse range of artists from around the world to present a selection of works exhibited at Wilder . Two exhibiting artists will be further offered the opportunity to take up residence at Clovermill in 2022.
A broad variety of themes run throughout the curation, from Slater and Hassel’s bold exploration and centring of the female body, the humour of Cameron’s works, and the otherworldliness, mythic and distortion of Qahtani, Chen and Wu’s practice.
From over 200 applications, this Open Call exhibition demonstrates a snapshot of the exciting talent contemporary working today, crossing mediums, themes and continents. The selection celebrates the range and depth of the collaboration’s collective interests.
