Brewers Towner International is an exhibition that will take place at Towner Eastbourne in 2022, featuring both British and International artists. Additionally, the Brewers Towner Award of £10,000, sponsored by Brewers Decorator Centres, will be awarded to one of the exhibiting artists.
Submissions from professional artists working in all media, including – but not restricted to – painting, drawing, print, sculpture, sound, performance, photography, film and installation are welcome. There is no cost to enter, and all exhibiting artists will receive a fee of £350.
Submissions can be made by artists working across the UK and internationally, at least one-third of exhibiting artists will be selected from Towner’s coastal region – being born or based in Sussex, Kent and Hampshire. While this is primarily an opportunity to present work within Towner’s gallery spaces, site-specific and off-site installations in the Eastbourne area will also be considered. All works submitted must be available for exhibition from October 2022 through to the end of January 2023. All works submitted must have been completed in the last 2 years (after 2019).
This year Towner invites submissions that explore the theme of SANCTUARY; which can be interpreted as a physical space, a place offering safe haven, asylum or refuge.
If successful, exhibiting artists will have this support:
Artist Fee of £350.
Reasonable costs of transporting artwork to/from Towner.
Experienced technical support provided for install and de-install of artworks.
Reasonable costs of travel and accommodation to attend the exhibition opening.
Professional documentation of the exhibition will be shared with all exhibiting artists.
