Café Exhibition Open Call 2019

8th October 2018

Rua Red is pleased to announce an open call for the centres café wall exhibition space for 2019.

We are seeking submissions of interest from artists and collectives working or living in Ireland. The café wall exhibitions will be limited to one month per artist/collective.

This is an ideal opportunity to exhibit your work in a bustling, community space with the option of putting your work up for sale.

Rua Red has a policy of supporting artists at all stages of their career. One of the new ways that Rua Red will implement this policy is by forming an ‘Acquisition Committee’ in September 2017. The role of the committee will be to select and purchase works from the Winter Open and Café Wall exhibitions to form a new collection for the organisation. The works will go on show within the building on a rotational basis in the Conference and Meeting Room areas.

If interested in exhibiting, please send 3 current images of work and a short bio (150 words max) on yourself and the themes/ideas behind the work submitted to events@ruared.ie by 5pm 31st of October 2018. (Email applications must state Café Wall submission in the subject bar)  

Work must be framed and ready to hang and materials and sizes should be specified. Exhibition space measurements are 6.11m x 3.5m.
