NOTTINGHAM CASTLE OPEN 2013

Selected by


Holly Slingsby (Artist & Gallery Manager, Matt’s Gallery, London)
Emily Speed (Artist)
Roger Malbert (Senior Curator, Hayward Touring, London)

With 922 works submitted by 332 artists, the selectors spent a long and challenging day deciding which works to include in this year’s Open exhibition. Their brief was to draw together a body of work that represented the wide range of creative practice taking place in our region, from style and medium, to subject and technical ability. From the large number of applications they finally drew together 49 works from 31 artists.
