Artists and Film-maker Wanted…...

This is an exciting opportunity for artists to explore, and respond to Bideford Black, a rich black pigment, and a film maker to document the artist's journey. The Burton Art Gallery & Museum has secured Arts Council England funding to commission eight artists and a film maker to make new works for the collection and to develop new ways of using Bideford Black. ‘Bideford Black - The Next Generation’ is a Burton project produced and curated in association with Flow Contemporary Arts and Claire Gulliver.

Email Expression of Interest document/s as a .doc or a .pdf file/s (max size 8mb) to Carolyn Black at Carolyn@flowprojects.org.uk by 12 noon on Friday 29th August 2014
