If you are looking for an art exhibition that accepts all kinds of art work, then Déjà vu exhibit is just for you! The exhibit will be held from 7th November to 16th December this year in Willesden Green Library Centre, Brent. This year, the event will be opened by a contemporary artist, whose name we will not disclose as we want it to be a surprise. This will be actually the 30th annual Déjà vu exhibition and for that reason, there will be some special promotions and chances to get engaged into the real projects that could give you the potential job. Stay tuned!
What kind of exhibition is this?
This is pretty much like a normal one, with the difference that will last for an almost month, so you will have enough time to check everything out. You, as the artist, can showcase all the 2D work that is made by you without anyone’s help. Paintings, photography, print, drawings and mixed media are accepted, as well as sculptural work and contemporary crafts. For the sake of space, it accepts only the limited number of artists, so do not be late to sign up for it. Also, all the artists must choose one piece for their showcase. It means you should choose your best piece of art for this occasion and do pay attention to mounting and framing. For more specification, you should contact the agency and find out what the requirements are listed for your showcase. In this article you will find the requirements for framing and size limits but we suggest you contacting for more information.
How to apply and what are requirements?
As we said, the number of available places is limited so it is advised to send your application as soon as possible. You should send an email, by the 13th October, containing:
- JPEG/Image with the title (the title should contain your name)
- Information about the size of your work
- The price of your piece
- The title.
In order to show your work, you will need to use professional framings and not use Perspex or clipping frames. You can use unframed 2D works that are mounted on a board or aluminum plate, with the D rings. The D rings use for hanging of the work, so make sure you have one on each of sides, 7-10cm from the top and make sure they are invisible once you hang the work. The size limit for 3D works is 30cm2 while for 2D work is 1m2.
Another thing you must pay attention to is titling. Your work must contain, on the back side, the name of author, the title of drawing and the price tag. This is due to easier classification and sorting the works. Make sure you bring the insurance with you as each artist will have his own insurance in case of loss or damage to the artwork. All the works that do not meet these requirement will not be processed or accepted.
