Curious Projects

Does making help you think creatively?

Following the success of the ‘Thinking/Drawing’ exhibition last year,
Curious Projects is inviting artists to submit maquettes for their
‘Thinking/Making’ exhibition, as they explain below.

Rather than finished work, the Curious Projects team are looking for three-dimensional ‘sketches’, models and maquettes, made as part of your creative thinking process.

This could be a kind of ‘making’ that you use purely as a thinking tool
and/or as an aid to making actual work.

For this show, the 27 window panes of the gallery will be transformed
into display boxes showing the selected entries.

Rather than artistic ability, the selected entries will be selected on how well they
illustrate the use of three-dimensional making as an idea-generating tool
and an aid to the creative process.

There will be a preview evening with drinks, the exhibition will be
widely publicised and a record of the show will be kept on the Curious Projects website.

It’s free to enter and there is no submission fee. Artists selected will be asked to contribute £8 towards the cost of making the boxes.

Exhibition dates will be Saturday 5 Dec 2015 – Friday 5 Feb 2016.

Details on how to enter here. Deadline: 1 November 2015.

Curious Projects is a small artist-run curated space that exhibits
ambitious sculptural and installation work. We aim to support artistic
practices which involve ‘making’ within a contemporary critical framework.
Previously a shop window, the space is situated in an indoor Edwardian
shopping arcade in central Eastbourne, incongruously nestled between a
nail salon, a florist and a palm reader.
