Daedalus Theatre looking to exhibit artists work

Daedalus Theatre Company will be staging the complete version of A Place at the Table at Camden People’s Theatre 2-19 November 2011 and at Southwark Cathedral for a short period in January 2012

Looking for an artist or group to exhibit their work in the theatre foyer/box office/bar while our current production A Place at the Table is on, 2-19 Nov – exact dates would have to be discussed.daedalus theatre

The only artistic stipulation is that the work has some kind of relationship with the play and/or Africa in general. The venue’s hoping to have African beer at the bar and maybe an African band playing post-show one night. It’d be about getting work seen/connecting to people with an interest in African-related culture.

Looking for a Photographer

Looking for a Photographer

We’re looking for a photographer with a natural eye for creating stylish interior shots to mastermind an innovative Christmas campaign for CultureLabel.com.

We’ve already been named one of Design Week’s Hot Top 50 creative influencers, and now need a visionary photographer/stylist that can push the brand further through clever ideas for the homepage starring our hand-curated products and art.

CultureLabel.com is a dynamic and fast-growing dot com in the arts sector which has generated sales of hundreds of thousands of pounds for our arts partners. We sell products and art from over 400 of the world’s leading museum, galleries, arts organisations and the wider creative and design community. Our founding partners include Tate, V&A, British Museum, Royal Academy, Saatchi Gallery and a selection of independent boutiques. We’ve also recently launched an Art Store in partnership with 60 galleries and Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.

As cultural entrepreneurs, our goal is to create a site that combines affordable style with making a positive difference to the arts organisations you buy from. On average, 90% of our sales go straight back to the organisations and individuals that sell through us.

We’re looking for someone who wants to build their photography portfolio using our unique combination of unusual arts settings, stylish products and quality art from leading galleries. Your work will have the highest visibility on CultureLabel.com, and we’ll provide a small fee to reimburse you for your time.

You can fit this around any existing job commitments or projects – we’re very flexible on timings, although you will need to stick to our ongoing deadlines for onsite content.

If it sounds of interest, please send us your photography portfolio which must include some examples of your contemporary interior styling (think lifestyle magazine with an arts focus).

To apply, please email your portfolio to photographer@culturelabel.com by Wed 17 August

Nature NOW! Opportunity for artists

Nature NOW! Opportunity for artists

Nature NOW! is an exhibition of work from a range of artists and designers.

Our aim is to make a wide ranging discussion on the state of ‘framed nature’ in our current western, urban landscape– How can the city be put to use, in terms of production, cultivation, independence and survival. What are the implications to our society and culture based on attempts to return the city to fields.

“We walk through our streets and cities and do not howl with shame at such deserts of ugliness! Let us be quite clear: these grey, hollow, spiritless mock-ups, in which we live and work, will be shameful evidence for posterity of the spiritual descent into hell of our generation”

We are looking for works (architecture, installation, furniture, machines, guides, explorations, experiments, writing, film etc) that set to discuss our relationships with the natural in a western urban landscape.

Please send PDFs/URLs/Images & a brief text.

Deadline: 20th August 2011
Exhibition times: 17th Sepember – 25th September
