How are artists making London a vibrant places to live? This is your chance to submit your work to The London Open 2018, Whitechapel Gallery’s triennial exhibition that showcases the most dynamic work being made across the capital today.
The London Open is a triennial exhibition open to all artists aged 26 or over living or working in London. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, moving image, photography, drawing, performances and installations.
With a rich history, first known as the East End Academy, then the Whitechapel Open, and finally The London Open, the Whitechapel Gallery has been open for submissions to exhibit since 1932. From the 1970s, when the area around the Gallery in East London was home to some of the UK’s most important artists, it also became a launch pad for many artists in the early stages of their career, including Peter Doig, Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, Bob & Roberta Smith, Richard Wentworth and Rachel Whiteread.
Since 2012 Whitechapel Gallery has expanded the reach of The London Open exhibition to include artists from all over London, recognising the Gallery’s cultural role in the city and reputation for exhibiting the best in contemporary art.
Applications for The London Open are now open. Submit your works before 26 November for a chance to be part of our summer exhibition next year.
