Description

Collect: The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects is  an annual fair presented by the Crafts Council. 

Collect Open offers a unique opportunity for individual makers and collectives to exhibit alongside international galleries showing at Collect. It has been a rich addition to the fair since 2011 and encourages artists to show work which challenges traditional perceptions of craft and design.

It provides a unique opportunity to present the unexpected to an influential and high-profile audience. Each year we call for proposals from individuals and collectives to present large scale, conceptual, installation based work that fulfills the following criteria;

  • New direction from the applicant / focusing on ambitious, challenging and risk taking work
  • New body of work / first showing is mandatory
  • Strong theming and curation by the applicant
  • Aesthetics and coherence of the work proposed 

Applications for Collect Open 2018 are now closed. We will be calling for applications for Collect Open 2019 in early 2018. Sign up to our newsletter to be notified of any Crafts Council opportunities for makers including Collect Open.
