Call for entries

Lunar New Year Exhibition - Open Call EXTENDED

Lunar New Year, Chinese New Year, Korean New Year, Tet: these are just a few of the many names for celebrating the start of the lunar calendar. We chose Lunar New Year as the umbrella term in order to be inclusive for this tradition which is celebrated across many asian countries where families come together and spend time with one another.  

For this Open Call we ask artists from Camberwell and CCW Foundation to submit either existing works or a project proposal considering the theme of  Lunar New Year or the Lunar Calendar. This is open to interpretation with any ideas and associations tied to it welcome. We invite all viewpoints, be they critical or celebratory, to get an understanding of what it means to have Lunar New Year in 2020.
