Pop-Up Exhibitions at Arts@Trinity - Your Chance

Pop-Up Exhibitions at Arts@Trinity - Your Chance

Arts@Trinity are looking to put on a limited number of Pop-Up Galleries in the Holy Trinity Church. We are interested in getting in contact with up and coming artists who are keen to hold their own, three-day exhibitions within our space.

Applications should consist of:

  • 250 word outline what your proposed exhibition would involve
  • Website address/social media tags (if you do not have a website, please include four images that are representative of your work)
  • A list of any previous exhibition appearances

Closing Date: 20th March

There are limitations to the space, so please read the brief below thoroughly before applying.

PLEASE NOTE – this is NOT a commission opportunity. All extra costs incurred must be covered by the artist.

If you are interested please send your application to artstrinityleeds@gmail.com

The Brief

Pop-up Gallery events will take place over three days (either Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Wednesday, Thursday, Friday). This timeframe includes the installation and de-installation process. The focus of the exhibition would thus be on the middle day.

All installations will be overseen by the Visual Arts Officer, or if they are absent, a member of Arts@Trinity staff. He or she will have final say over how the exhibition is to be conducted. The installation and de-installation process, however, are the responsibility of the artist.

On Tuesdays and Fridays between 10am and 2pm the church is open for prayer time and a Eucharist service.  We would ask that both exhibitors and visitors respect this. Please be aware that the installation and deinstallation process would need to fit around these events.

To this end:

  • Exhibits must be positioned next to the outer walls in both the north and the south aisles. These can be hung from our panelled screens. No fixtures may be made to the pillars and walls.
  • Exhibits may be positioned in the window spaces and, exceptionally, hung between the pillars but they must be removable.
  • Other areas may be used (e.g. Chancel, Sanctury, Nave) providing the exhibits can be moved when necessary by A@T staff.
  • Floor exhibits are discouraged unless they are easily moveable by A@T staff.
  • Invigilation is the responsibility of the exhibitors.

The exhibition will include a private viewing on the evening of the middle day at which Arts@Trinity can provide film screens and a projector, seven easels, some tables and chairs; other equipment, such as lighting, by negotiation.

Arts@Trinity and Holy Trinity Church accept no responsibility for the loss or damage of any artwork whilst installed in the premises. All exhibitors are encouraged to take out their own insurance against damage, loss or public liability.

There will be no charge for the use of the Holy Trinity Church, but Arts@Trinity do take a 15% commission on any artworks or merchandise sold on their premises.
