Artists invited to take over Dalston market stall
Artists are being invited to take control of a stall in Dalston’s famous street market as part of a public exhibition project.
Open Empty Spaces, an organisation dedicated to setting up temporary art galleries, is calling on Hackney’s many creative minds to put forward proposals for an interactive, site-specific commission in a pitch in Ridley Road market.
Ideas acceptable include sculpture exhibitions, research displays and performances but they must connect to the space, history or people of the market.
Ridley Road is one of just two locations in the UK where this project is taking place. Another artist will work in Cardiff Market in Central Cardiff.
The art will be on display for up to a month in April next year and a fee of �1,000 will be available.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm on January 8.
