Our exhibition Significant Other will be a creative celebration of difference and overcoming adversity. At Sweet ‘Art our mission and values have always responded to a desire to be inclusive and provide opportunity for those who face barriers in the art world and society and may feel ‘other’; our mission being prompted in part by the Sweet ‘Art teams’ own intersecting identity related challenges, artistically and personally. This exhibition will call on artists to respond to otherness and its richness and importance culturally, societally, personally and politically. In psychology the significant other is a person with a strong influence on an individual's self-evaluation and reception of social norms. This exhibition will respond to the importance of those that challenge societal normativity and in doing so make space for change and innovative and important practice.
We are looking for works which consider and explore these ideas, in any media.
Selected artists will be given the opportunity to exhibit for a 10 day show in London.
Works will need to be available between the 4-18 June. Work must be available to be delivered either in-person or by courier directly to the exhibition venue on 4 June. Submissions Process: To submit up to 6 art works please visit our submissions page and complete our online submissions form at the prospectus link below.
