Festivals ArtRooms 2017
International Deadline: March 15; June 30, 2016 – The largest UK show for indie artists! Applications for ARTROOMS 2017 are now open.
ARTROOMS is an innovative concept of art exhibition that offers independent artists the opportunity to exhibit their artworks in an intimate dimension, shortening the distance between artists, curators and visitors. The unique setting of a luxury hotel room becomes a pioneering way to access art.
The new edition of this contemporary art fair for independent artists is set for 20 – 23 January 2017 on the first floor of the Meliá White House in central London. This is a unique opportunity for artists at any stage to showcase their work, pitch with top galleries and private collectors and sell art.
Independent Artists from all over the world can apply. When applying you confirm that:
• You will personally take part to the fair (no representatives admitted)
• You do NOT have an exclusive representative contract with an agent/dealer /art gallery in the UK.
• The ARTROOMS fair provide selected artists free exhibition spaces. All other costs, such as travels, stay and shipment (included where needed, custom duty and VAT) of the materials are at the artist expenses.
SELECTION & PARTICIPATION
70 independent artists selected among thousands will showcase the essence of their artistic vision under the same roof. 70 rooms for 70 artists.
The only limit is your imagination – and the ceiling. Last year an artist turned the space room into a virtual jungle, while another turned out the lights and led viewers through in total darkness with only a torch. Anything goes as long as it’s not permanent (nails in the walls are ok but not screws, and you are not able to remove the bed from the room).
Their challenge in 3 days is to spark the interest of the public and of the top players in the art market.
Application for ARTROOMS 2017 is £20 and if you apply before the 15th of March you pay only £ 10.
Exhibiting is completely Free. Artrooms charge 30% commission on sales.
Early Bird Application Deadline: March 15, 2016
Final Application Deadline: June 30, 2016
Please Note: APPLICATIONS MAY GO SOLD OUT . Due to the amount of applications we received last year, we may decide to close the application before the deadline. Still, once the payment of the fee has been provided, you have time until the end of June to send the Application Form.
