Curated by Lily Waite, I Will Hold Your Gaze aims to provide a much-needed space and platform for trans and non-binary students and graduates across UAL, highlighting and celebrating their voices. As in society, the trans* community within the ‘art world’ is still massively underrepresented, and often overlooked, and ignored.
A trans disciplinary exhibition, I Will Hold Your Gaze will attempt to explore gender, race, sexuality, and identity through different media, as well as reacting to the broader art world and media’s ignorance and problematic view- and standpoints, whilst navigating cis and male gazes, resulting in an exhibition that provides and authentic insight into the lives of trans and non-binary individuals.
If selected your work will need to be available from 17th - 24th July
Deadline: Midnight, Thursday 29th June
Open to: All current UAL students
Ideal for: Fine Art, Performance, Design, Photography, Arts & Science, Fashion, Hair & Make-up, Costume.

At this special RA Summer Late, we take inspiration from the ways in which artists and writers have created imaginary worlds for a night-long boutique arts festival complete with artist installations, performances, DJs, live music, secret bars, creative activities and more.
We are inviting UAL student proposals for immersive installations, performances, set designs, costumes, activities and experiences that will feature as part of RA Lates: The Other Paradise. Some ideas and themes to think about:
• Portrayals of paradise, tropical islands and Arcadia
• Worlds and cities in Ancient Mythology (Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Roman)
• Architectural fictions / architecture of memory eg Italo Calvino ‘Invisible Cities’
• Sci-fi films as contemporary depictions of ‘new worlds’
• Fairy-tales or children’s stories
How to apply
Participants will be notified and invited to an informal initial meeting shortly after the deadline.
If selected they will then work with the Royal Academy to develop their ideas for the event. Participants must be available to meet on the afternoon of Monday 10th July, 2017.
Submission deadline: Midnight, Sunday 2nd of July, 2017
