Cornerhouse, Manchester is offering an exciting opportunity for artists 
to apply for the chance to create new work as part of a group show which 
will open in January 2013. The exhibition is being produced by a team of 
young curators following the successful exhibition Lost is Found.

We are looking to commission new art work to form an engaging group show 
which will take place in Cornerhouse's Gallery 1 from 26 January – 24 
February 2013.

There will be a fee of £1000 for each of the chosen artists to create 
their work. The call for entries has an open theme and can include work 
in any medium, from photography to sculpture, film and digital media – 
not excluding other methods. The work will be judged on a number of 
factors, including originality and adventurous use of different media.

Commissions should be accessible to a broad audience and reflect 
Cornerhouse's artistic policy. Selected artists will be expected to 
engage with the public in discussions and exhibition related events.

We are looking for high quality work from artists at any point in their 
career. There is no limitation on location of artists. Shortlisted 
applicants will be asked to meet the group of curators prior to final 
selection. Cornerhouse will cover travel expenses.

Artists' fee: £1000 (to include all production costs)
Deadline for submissions: Wed 12 September.

Curators will meet shortlisted applicants on Sat 29 September.
The exhibition will take place Sat 26 January until Sun 24 February.

To submit a proposal:

- Download and complete the application form 
- Include an up to date CV
- Include an artist statement (250 words maximum)
- Include a digital portfolio or up to 10 images
