From the 18th-22nd December 2017 Sweet ‘Art will be hosting Naughty and Nice, our next thought provoking, dynamic and fun art exhibition.
We are seeking art works of any medium including painting, print, sculpture, photography, film, installation and performance that explores the beauty or bleakness of the winter season, its landscapes, activities or festivals. Suggestions for themes include the challenge or critique of the Christmas period, through exploration of family dynamics, traditions and domesticity, religious beliefs, pagan alternatives and political perspectives on issues such as consumerism. We are also seeking artists that may create sculptural festive objects, cards or decorations that may be humorous, alternative or traditional. Artists could also explore ideas of winter through materials, narrative or subject.
In honour of our organizational ethos we also welcome works that explore the potential roles of women during the festive or winter period and explorations of this time of year from non-Christian perspectives. We particularly welcome submissions from BAME artists and women of colour.
Selected artists will be given the opportunity to exhibit in the spacious, well lit and professionally finished Espacio Gallery, located in the heart of London’s art scene and only a stone’s throw from Brick Lane.
