CROYDON ARTS STORE ANTIDEGREE SHOW 2019
***APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOW, OPENING JUNE 22ND 2019****
Croydon Arts Store is committed to providing opportunities for early career artists and contributing to the deinstitutionalisation of the arts. With this in mind this year LOFT is hosting an ANTIDEGREE SHOW for artists and creatives who did not go to university.
The ANTIDEGREE SHOW provides a space for artists who do not have an art degree to showcase their work and meet with potential gallery representatives or curators. Just like an end-of-year show at a higher education institution, each participant will have a space to showcase a project they have been working on, gain exhibition experience and meet external audiences. Galleries and curators looking to work with artists without formal training are invited to the opening event to view work and meet with artists. Just like a university end-of-year show, each participant will be given a semi-private exhibition space to showcase their work. For performers, filmmakers, and other live or time-based works, there will be a performance and screening event on the opening night.
This event runs as part of ANTIUNIVERSITY NOW, a collaborative experiment to challenge institutionalised education, access to learning and the mechanism of knowledge creation and distribution.
