ICON exhibition in london call for artists

What makes an icon? How do we make ourselves and our work known?

While most of the time artists are focusing just on the actual work we should not forget how important is the artist itself.

If we take Pablo Picasso as an example one can realise how much he was working on his own image and how this impacted his famous legacy.

The purpose of this exhibition is to inspire future icons.

This Exhibition Will Take Place At Our Newly Opened Space In Tower Bridge LONDON.

The new space is located in Tower bridge, one of most iconic places in the world and the most visited place in the whole UK.

The new space is nestled between modern and classic London icons: The Shard 4 minutes away, Tower Bridge 1 minute away, London Bridge 2 minutes away.

With a blend of traditional Victorian brick walls and a central private bar just for our audience, the space is unique in the whole city of London. The pictures below are from our previous opening “Contemporary” where we had over 300 people at the opening.

We had a lot of enquires from foreign artists to exhibit with us but sometimes shipping the work to London in time might be a bit difficult in this challenging period, that’s why we’ve come up with an alternative! If you are one of the accepted artist and you find it hard to ship your work to us, you can send us photos of your work and we can print and frame it for you at no additional cost.

We have 3 available sizes for the frame:

1. 32/32 cm

2. 30/40 cm

3. 40/50 cm


This will be a physical event and it will take place in our new gallery space in Tower Bridge- London (the one from the picture above).


As we run multiple open calls, please make sure you include in the email line the open call you apply for.
