Please fill in the form below to submit your work to be part of Liverpool 2026. We are looking for ideas and work that explores the themes below, so make sure you explain your thinking as well as sending images. We may pair you with other artists whose work complements yours. All submissions must be received by midnight on Friday 29th March 2019.
How much can a city change in seven years? What will the cultural ecosystem look like? Will the way we work as creatives have moved on? Will digital have completely taken over from traditional methods of communication, art production and sharing, or will a backlash lead to the re-emergence of once lost skills? Will technology extend or diminish our creative capacity?
Guided by the theme of speculation and foresight, we invite any artists based in the Liverpool City Region to show us a future not yet determined. We are opening submissions from artists whose work responds to the theme in innovative and visually interesting ways.
Both 2D and 3D work is acceptable, but we cannot accept screen-based pieces. Between one and six artists will be chosen to take part and all art work must be for sale. Selected work will be shown in the dot-art Gallery from 18th May – 29th June and successful artists who have not worked with dot-art in the past will also receive a year’s membership to our network.
