MiAL x UAL Commissions

Call Out – Commission Opportunity

The MiAL x UAL Commissions is a chance for three University of the Arts London students to create an exclusive commission celebrating collaboration between artists, to be showcased at Made in Art London’s Independent exhibition 21st September – 2nd October 2017 at Four Corners’ Gallery, Bethnal Green.

Three students will receive £800 each to go towards creating commissions, and will become a Made in Arts London artist.

The commissions will be chosen from three students who identify in the following categories:
• Current EU Student (including those of UK origin)
• Current International Student
• Current BAME Student (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic)

Alexander Devereux

Open to: All UAL colleges and courses, levels and disciplines.

Ideal for:
Current UAL students who would like a paid opportunity to develop and expand their practice. This opportunity is aimed at students who feel that this opportunity could help them develop and create work that they otherwise may be unable to complete. It is also aimed at students who feel they would benefit from this experience and gain professional development experience in creating a commission to a brief.

What it is:
The MiAL x UAL Commissions is an opportunity for UAL students to create an exclusive piece or installation celebrating education, collaboration and exchange of ideas within creative industries and institutions, particularly within the UAL staff and student body.

The commissioned piece will be exhibited at Made in Arts London’s independent exhibition, alongside other commissions demonstrating that creativity must operate across borders. As education, collaboration and exchange of ideas are a vital part of development for any emerging creative, this exhibition aims to address how the contribution of talent can ensure that the creative industries are borderless and celebrates the importance of diversity in art.

There are no limitations on the medium of the final piece, but please keep in mind that the piece will need to be physically exhibited within the gallery space at Four Corners’ Gallery. The three commissions must therefore fit and work within the gallery space. The piece must be ready to install on Tuesday 19th September 2017.

The MiAL x UAL Commissions is an opportunity funded by University of the Arts London in partnership with Made in Arts London.

How to apply:
To apply for this opportunity please complete the submission form online. You will need to provide an artist statement and details about your proposed commission including your thinking behind the piece and how it relates to the theme.  You will also need to provide examples of previous work, and if possible, sketches and example images of your proposed piece.

Deadline to apply: 9am Monday 24th July 2017.
