CALL FOR EMERGING ARTISTS: CREATE! MAGAZINE INTERNATIONAL PRINT ISSUE ART BASEL MIAMI EDITION
Rebecca Hossack Gallery , London and New York
The Director of three galleries in central London and New York, Rebecca Hossack was born in Melbourne in 1955. Following degrees in Law and in History of Art, Hossack studied at Christie's and at The Guggenheim in Venice. She set up her own gallery in Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, in March 1988. (She signed the lease only three days before the great stock-market crash on 'Black Monday'). Hossack's business, despte the economic climate, has not only survived, but thrived. In 2007 she moved the main London gallery to a three-storey building in 2a Conway Street, off Fitzroy Square, while keeping a second space at nearby 28 Charlotte Street. From 1993-7, Hossack served as the Australian cultural attaché in London, initiating literary links between Australian and British writers and organising a series of exhibitions of Australian art in London. Her 'unworthy predecessor' Sir Les Patterson saluted her as 'one beaut sheila'. Hossack's portrait was included in Australians, an exhibition of photographs by Polly Borland at the National Portrait Gallery (with an accompanying book) celebrating 'the contributions of 55 famous Aussie "ex-pats".

Transitions and Displacements
TRANSITIONS AND DISPLACEMENTS Call for Exhibition
Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design
Take part in the Group Exhibition in Berlin or Rome city. April 2020
Transitions and displacements are the objects of reflection for our call. The concept of the two terms is a recall to the "liquid" vision of contemporary philosophy. Transitions, displacements, mutations of condition are the prerogatives of a fluid approach to reality, prerogatives of a free change in the state of things that allows full organic adherence to the environment and to the context in which each subject / object is immersed .
