Isles artists invited to display work at Tate Modern exhibition
The Museum of Everything is looking for artists from Shetland to display their work in an exhibition at the Tate Modern.
The London-based museum is a space for non-traditional and marginal artists, whose work is often created outside the art world.
Melissa Emery of the Museum of Everything said: “When the Tate Modern invited us to host our second exhibition for its anniversary celebrations, we decided to use the opportunity to find undiscovered artists from across Britain.
“The artists we are looking for are not professionally trained. They are self-taught usually and some do not even consider themselves artists – such as those working in secret or those with developmental disabilities. They could be children, OAPS, people of worship of all religions – anything goes really.
“We are interested in all forms of this work and all sorts of materials; however, for this exhibition, we are limiting our search to works on paper.
“To enter, artists or their representatives will need to come to the Tate Modern during the exhibition. We will have a panel of artists, curators and others look at the work and decide there and then if it is right for the show. If it is, it’s in.
“It’s really that simple. The art has to be brought in person because we’re only a small operation and can’t really manage this any other way. However, once the show is finished we will be publishing a book of all the works which has been selected for the exhibition.”
The exhibition runs from 14th to 16th May. To enter visit www.musevery.com for details.
