Call for proposals for the Glass Tank 2019/20 exhibition programme - Deadline 15th April 2019

Oxford Brookes University art gallery, the Glass Tank, first opened its doors in 2012 as part of the redevelopment project Space to Think. Since then the gallery has hosted a range of exhibitions showcasing work intended to disseminate the university's research, shed light on conceptual art, transfer ideas about the abstract and propose questions to the public.


The Glass Tank is now accepting exhibition proposals for the 2019/2020 academic year. The Glass Tank looks to continue developing exhibitions and working with artists to achieve shows which encourage visitors to engage with art and research.


For the coming year, we will focus our efforts on a collection of high quality exhibitions which demonstrate outreach potential. Therefore, we encourage potential exhibitors to specify how they may use the opportunity to engage with a wider audience such as by hosting a talk, workshop or creative use of an online platform. While we encourage students, staff, alumni of Oxford Brookes University to apply, we also welcome proposals from external artists to allow the Glass Tank to continue being an inclusive space.


To find out more, please read the 'Call for Proposals - Information and Guidelines' document on the Glass Tank website, along with the full terms and conditions attached to the proposals form. You can find and download these documents here:

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

The proliferation of meme culture - accelerated by technology - has had particular social influence. Largely through mimesis, gesture and mutation, memes spread ideas, behaviors and attitudes like viruses while shaping the social interactions of those who carry them. While many recognize the effects of memes in the entertainment realm, their impact is no doubt felt much wider, politically, socially and economically. We invite works that take as their subject the notion of “meme culture,” however widely interpreted, or that reflect on the impact of memes on the way we increasingly think, act and interact with one another.


Modest awards have been established by the festival organizers to recognize work of exceptional accomplishment. They include a $300.00 Best of Festival award, and a $100 award in each of the festival categories: Best Documentary Short, Best Narrative Short, Best Animation, Best Experimental, Best Student Film, Best Young Filmmaker and Best "Memes Culture" Theme.

The 2019 West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival will be held on April 26 & 27 in the Gluck Theater at the West Virginia University Mountainlair in Morgantown.

NTU Global Digital Art Prize 2019

The NTU Global Digital Art Prize (NTU GDAP) is organised by the NTU Institute of Science and Technology for Humanity (NISTH) and the School of Art, Design and Media. Taking the form of a biennial competition, it recognises global artists and technologists with extraordinary creativity in digitally mediated art, design and cultural heritage. 

The theme of the inaugural NTU GDAP is Fourth Industrial Revolution. The key components driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution include big data, the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, real-time and deep data generation and analytics, 3D printing, machine learning, personalised healthcare and medicine, and cyber security. Their effectiveness in shaping the human condition in the 21st century will inevitably call for close integration of technological innovations with areas such as social sciences, ethics, policy, and digital arts and humanities.

Arts Feminism Queer (CUNTemporary) is now accepting proposals for ‘Deep Trash: Eco Trash’ &‘Queer-feminist Ecocriticism in Live Art & Visual Cultures’, which will be part of the larger programme ‘EcoFutures’, taking place in (London, UK) in April 2019.


The programme will explore urgent topics ranging from ecological disasters and their impact on climate refugees; plastic/toxic waste and the contamination of aquatic and human bodies; the relationship between increasing air toxicity and human and animal diseases; high-speed capitalist consumption and the ungovernable production of trash and techno-waste; from neo-colonialist soil exploitations to indigenous land reclamations and green economies; the rise of temperature and sea levels and their direct effects on the environment, with a focus on the Global South / Majority World.


Artists, activists and theorists are invited to engage with these topics through feminist, queer and decolonial approaches to provide alternatives that draw from situated knowledges, eco-sustainable modes of living, non-exploitative human and animal relations within ecosystems, as well as speculative scenarios of imagined futures, nature-based spirituality, earth magick, feminine powers and ecosexuality.
