We are inviting all IDS alumni to submit their artwork (photos, spoken word art and other artwork) to be exhibited in the IDS community exhibition space. If selected, this is a chance to have your artwork showcased and seen by students, colleagues, peers as well as by visitors to IDS through the spring and summer 2023.
Closing date for submissions (extended): Sunday 5th March, 11:59pm
The exhibition is based on the theme for the current Sussex Development Lecture series: Global solidarities for development. You can read more about the theme here. We invite you to consider these questions, and ask how emerging solidarities from social movements, collective action and networks locally, regionally and transnationally can help achieve sustainable development for the future. What do solidarities mean to you, and how can they tackle the challenges you see in the world?
The exhibition will run from March to September 2023. We hope to have an official opening of the exhibition in late April 2023.
Please fill in the submission form along with a photograph and description of your artwork. Then, either post your submission to IDS, or hand it in to colleagues at the IDS reception.
We understand that this might not be an option for everybody because of time or cost. If this is the case, please take a high-definition photograph of your artwork and submit this using the form. Any postage cost needs to be covered by the artist.
NB – Selected works can be framed by IDS, however will need to be in A3 (29.7 cm x 42 cm) dimensions, either portrait or landscape. Not all artwork needs to be framed if you are working in different dimensions.
Mailing Address: James Andrews, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, Library Road, Falmer, Brighton, BN1 9RE
The IDS Building Imagery Committee would like to encourage submissions of all forms of artistic expression for the exhibition space. Spoken word submissions will be printed for the exhibition as well as recorded by the Building Imagery Committee with the recordings then being made accessible in an online space.
Please submit your spoken word art via the submission form.
IDS is committed to making the exhibition space accessible to all. As such, we would like you to also submit a short-written description of your artwork. This description will then be printed as well as recorded and kept on an online platform which is accessible to those persons who might need to interact with the exhibition in different ways, such as the visually impaired.
Please keep in mind that people do not think in images, we think in language. As such, we would like you to make your descriptions vivid, colourful, and expressive of the narrative of your artwork.
We would like to thank you for your participation. We will notify everyone whose work is selected for the exhibition space.
