Attention Artists - Beware of Scams

The featured listings above this note all use the OESS to manage your artwork entries, therefore we are pretty sure they are legitimate calls. Many will charge entry fees to cover administration and exhibition costs so we recommend you consider their offerings very carefully before deciding if they are worthwile for you.

All the listings below are managed independently of the OLIST and OESS, therefore we cannot confirm their accuracy or reliability, we recommend that you thoroughly check and research all details before making any payments. Please check with the organiser for more information.

We cannot check all the listings posted to this site but if you suspect a scam, please let us know and we will investigate and if necessary remove them from The OLIST

 

Curators and Exhibition Organisers - Please Note:
Due to the rise in the number of scams and profit making schemes targeting artists, from 1st June 2018 we will no longer accept listings from profit making organisations unless they are using the OESS submission system.
If you are a charity or a 'not for profit' organisation you can still add your listing for free. However we reserve the right not to show your listing on The OLIST if we cannot confirm your charitable or 'not for profit' status from the details you submit.

Sculpture in the City - Call for Submissions

Sculpture in the City is an award winning urban sculpture park which launches at the end of June. A cultural initiative delivered by the City of London in partnership with 13 local businesses, it is sited in the EC3 (insurance district) area of the City, around the iconic towers of the Gherkin, the Cheesegrater, Lloyd’s building as well as inside Leadenhall Market. The call for submissions for the ninth edition of Sculpture in the City is now open for preexisting works that can be exhibited outdoors from May 2019 to May 2020. The aim of the project is to use the area as a contemporary urban gallery space and showcase cutting edge art in an area represented by the iconic contemporary towers but also the layers of history nestled amongst these tall buildings.
