We are proud to announce NAE's inaugural 'open' exhibition – an open platform for artists to apply and exhibit their work. Given NAE's key priorities in supporting both culturally diverse and local talent, the exhibition will be open to all artists in Nottinghamshire, and also to UK artists of culturally diverse heritage and those exploring diversity within their practice.

The NAE Open will present a snapshot of contemporary fine art practice. We are therefore seeking submissions for work made in the last there years, and all mediums are encouraged, including live art.

The NAE Open provides a range of developmental and profile raising opportunities. A panel of industry specialists, including curators and writers working nationally and internationally will form the selection panel, viewing each and every submission. Artists selected will be presented in NAE's exhibition and a range of prizes will be awarded, including cash awards and the opportunity for future exhibitions.

Applications open w/c 18 March 2019
