Members Show Open Call | RAW



Opening: 7th April 6pm to 9pm
in conjunction with Belfast’s Late Night Art

Exhibition continues: 8th – 14th of April.

Catalyst Arts are pleased to announce the open-call for RAW, Catalyst Arts’ 2016 Members Show.

Always fascinated by the alchemical moment in which stone turns into gold, our aim is to present a whole exhibition compiled of unfinished artworks: drafts, ideas, sketches, notes, collections, files, images – pretty much everything – in the middle of a productive or disastrous process, where a project could contain in itself all its potential becoming forms.

RAW as a statement.

In short, take the raw from your dusty studio and bring it here.

To be part of RAW all applicants must be a members of Catalyst Arts.

For more information on our membership see here:

On 14th April all exhibiting artists will be invited for an open dialogue within the gallery, in order to present, discuss and explore the possibilities and metamorphosis of their raw works.

Each member is eligible to submit one piece of unfinished work in any medium.

This must be brought or posted to the gallery. If posted, each artist has to cover shipping costs, included the expenses to post the work back.

Because of the large amount of submissions annually received, the applicants must consider the following specifications: the maximum dimensions accepted for canvas and photographic prints are 2.50×2.50 meters, sculptures and installation must be not larger than 3 meters cubed. If you wish to show a video, you must provide all the technical equipment required.

The drop-off for install will take place on the 5th and 6th of April, 11am- 5pm, and the 7th of April, 11am-3pm. We will be unable to accept works outside of these times.
