CLUTCH Collective – 2017 Program

DEADLINE : 23rd January, 2017

CLUTCH collective is now accepting proposals for our 2017 exhibition program. The program will consist of one-night shows in the back of a three-ton truck. CLUTCH is especially interested in supporting new work by emerging Brisbane based artists.

CLUTCH is seeking both individual and collaborative visual artists working across all mediums as well as writers who are interested in contributing to the essays of programmed events. Along side this, we are keen to hear from friends, followers and community members who are able to offer us their backyards / car parks / knowledge of potential locations to host our 2017 events.

CLUTCH is particularly interested in proposals that articulate an interest in site-specificity and the creation of new work that carefully considers both the opportunities and limitations offered by the unique space of the truck – both as an interior gallery and exterior form that has nomadic capabilities. The back of the truck is approximately 4.2 x 2.15 x 2.15m. Please note that clutch collective will be charging a small fee to exhibiting artists to assist covering costs of the exhibition space.
