Open Cube at White Cube Mason’s Yard, London
Call for entries: Open Cube
Curated by Adriano Pedrosa
Deadline: 28 February 2013
Application fee: none
Leading contemporary art gallery White Cube has invited São Paulo-based curator Adriano Pedrosa to curate an exhibition at their Mason’s Yard gallery, London, in July 2013. Pedrosa’s project, titled Open Cube, will attempt to infiltrate the hierarchies of the gallery system by inviting any interested artists to submit works to be included in the exhibition. By opening up the selection process, Pedrosa wishes to unsettle the system of gallery practices, initiating a dialogue with artists that might not have access to this network.
Shortlisted artists must be available for interviews in London with Adriano Pedrosa in March and April.
A comprehensive catalogue with texts by Pedrosa will accompany the exhibition.
Adriano Pedrosa is an independent curator, editor, and writer currently based in São Paulo. He has curated numerous international exhibitions and has published extensively on contemporary art in numerous catalogues and magazines.
