Towner International

Towner International is a major new biennial exhibition of contemporary art that will take place at Towner in 2020, featuring British and International artists. The Brewers Prize of £10,000, sponsored by Brewers Decorator Centres, will be awarded to one of the exhibiting artists.

Towner are inviting artists to submit works for consideration to Towner International through the online Open Call process. An esteemed panel of guest judges including Polly Staple (Director, Chisenhale Gallery), Turner Prize nominated artist Mike Nelson, and Noelle Collins (Curator, Towner Art Gallery) will select artists for the inaugural Towner International exhibition.

Towner welcomes submissions from professional artists working in all media, including – but not restricted to – painting, drawing, print, sculpture, sound, performance, photography, film and installation.There is no cost to enter, and all exhibiting artists will receive a fee of £250.

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 13 June–6 September 2020.
