ABOUT

The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is one of the most terrible contemporary disasters to befall humanity on a global scale. People around the world are suffering. Either through being infected with the virus and require intense medical treatment or are in lockdown in their homes.

Although this is a daunting moment in human history, art, culture and humanity mustn’t be abandoned! Preserving a connection to the humanities is the main reason ‘In 24-Hours’ originated. This exhibition is an open call for video, performance art, digital image, sound art, paintings, poetry, photography or any work that can be shown digitally, online or live-streamed through the [SHIFT:ibpcpa] platform.

The exhibition, ‘In 24-Hours’ aims to build a resilient, creative community during such harrowing times. And to keep hope and motivation afloat through the showing of exciting pieces of work from a global group of artists.

It is FREE to submit work to this exhibition.

FORMAT

A work of art from a different artist exhibited for 24-hours. The opening days are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and everything will be presented online due to current and upcoming community lockdowns. Artists from any country are welcome to submit work. The exhibition will take place three days a week and aims to show the work of as many artists as possible within the timeframe between April – June.

For more details, please email contact@ayshia.co.uk or send files via WeTransfer.

#ShowAnythingShow2020

#SAS2020

The Show Anything Show 2020 is an open call for artists to exhibit simple, fast, vibrant, insightful and diverse work. We want to invite artists to present art and performance at the iconic Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh.

Anyone who would like to be involved must arrive on the 20th March between 12 pm – 3 pm to install work and then enjoy a magnificent evening! We accept work from emerging and established artists as well as performers and anyone working outside the conventional art boundaries.

Note: we accept video-work via WeTransfer from artists outside Scotland who wish to take part but cannot attend the event.

Join the ‘Show Anything Show’ as a chance for artists, at all stages of their career, to get involved, get feedback on their creative endeavours and meet other artists. On the night, we are open to artists giving a 5-minute talk and testing out new performances and poetry.

The ‘Show Anything Show’ does not want to be a pristine and beautifully curated exhibition, but a gathering of creative endurance. Alternatively, if you don’t want to bring work, bring yourself and make work on the day!

It is free to submit work to this event, and all you must do is bring (or send) the artwork!
