Café Wall Open Call for 2020

12th September 2019

Rua Red is pleased to announce an Open Call for the centre’s Café Wall exhibition space 2020.

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 implements this policy is by the ‘Acquisition Committee’ (set up in Sept 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
  • Short bio (150 words max) on yourself and the themes/ideas behind the work submitted.

to events@ruared.ie by 25 October, 5pm. (Email applications must state Café Wall submission in the subject bar)

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