Brewers Towner International: Open Call for Submissions

Towner Eastbourne is inviting artists to submit works for consideration to Brewers Towner International through an online Open Call process which is now open.

Brewers Towner International is an exhibition that will take place at Towner Eastbourne in 2022, featuring both British and International artists.  Additionally, the Brewers Towner Award of £10,000, sponsored by Brewers Decorator Centres, will be awarded to one of the exhibiting artists.

Submissions from professional artists working in all media, including – but not restricted to – painting, drawing, print, sculpture, sound, performance, photography, film and installation are welcome. There is no cost to enter, and all exhibiting artists will receive a fee of £350.

Submissions can be made by artists working across the UK and internationally, at least one-third of exhibiting artists will be selected from Towner’s coastal region – being born or based in Sussex, Kent and Hampshire. While this is primarily an opportunity to present work within Towner’s gallery spaces, site-specific and off-site installations in the Eastbourne area will also be considered. All works submitted must be available for exhibition from October 2022 through to the end of January 2023.

An esteemed panel of guest judges including Sepake Angiama (Director, Iniva), Elizabeth Price (Turner Prize winning artist), and Noelle Collins (Exhibitions & Offsite Curator, Towner) will select artists for the exhibition.

This year Towner invites submissions that explore the theme of SANCTUARY; which can be interpreted as a physical space, a place offering safe haven, asylum or refuge; it can be understood as an area or environment where endangered species are protected, diverse ecosystems flourish and wildlife is preserved; it can also suggest a space of the imagination, a meditative mental space of solace and respite from the exterior world.

The Open Call is an opportunity to recognise and appreciate how artistic communities are reflecting and responding to the economic, political, cultural, and environmental changes that are unfolding in the contemporary moment.
