HOME Projects is presented in the Granada Foundation Galleries on levels one and two of our building, and gives us an opportunity to encourage a blurring of distinction between gallery, cinema and theatre spaces, straddling both formal and informal presentation.
That art should so often appear rarefied when sited in a white cube space, but becomes more accessible when accompanied by the bustle and chatter of footfall and the clink of cutlery, raises useful questions around inclusion/exclusion, validation and a hierarchy of perceived worth – granting a valuable opportunity for photography, graphic arts, illustration, design, creative documentation and process-inspired work.
North West artists, curators and producers are a particular priority, as is an ongoing conversation addressing affordability and the value of the creative act, ranging from the return of our popular Sketch-O-Matic to limited edition prints.
HOME Projects will continue to evolve and respond to our audience needs and enquiries, but in essence will act as a torch beam across our programme and the wider city region.
HOME Projects will open quarterly for submissions. Applications are now being considered. Please submit no more than 500 words together with contact details describing your proposal with a selection of images not exceeding 5MB to firstname.lastname@example.org
