‘Room 103: a visual tribute to George Orwell’ is a web-based project which invites the participation of artists whose work reflects some aspect of the writer’s expansive oeuvre. The aim is to provide a bank of high quality, innovative artwork from which any venue or gallery will be able to select work for an exhibition on this theme. So far, the website has led to exhibitions at Saul Hay Gallery, Manchester, Studio 24, Leeds, and the Faculty of English, University of Oxford. The next exhibition will be at Oriel Q Gallery in Narberth, Pembrokeshire in July 2020.
Please send up to 4 Images in jpeg, about 1mb file size. [Work in progress is welcome at this stage] together with a] brief biography, and b] why Orwell and his work are relevant to your art practice [about 500 words each]
Submission to the website is free. If selected for the Narberth exhibition, there will be no charge, though artists will be responsible for delivering and collecting their work to and from the venue. Participating Artists agree to their work being used for purposes of advertising the exhibition in any publicity material, press and social media.
Details of the exhibition will be finalised shortly.
