GV Art are planning a new exhibition, Nature Reserves

Exhibition runs from 26 July — 13 September 2013

GV Art gallery, London, 49 Chiltern Street, Marylebone, London W1U 6LY


Dear Artist,

GV Art is planning a new exhibition, Nature Reserves, conceived and curated by Tom Jeffreys. The exhibition looks to examine our understanding of the natural environment, and the ways in which this is influenced by different methods of constructing meaning – across literature, science and the arts – with specific reference to thinking around the archive. Of particular interest is the two-way relationship between knowledge storage and knowledge creation and the tangled effect this has on our changing conceptions of the natural world.

We would like to invite you to send us a brief proposal of ideas for work (whether existing or yet to be realised) to be included in this exhibition, addressing the themes stated above. Please send us low res images (no more than 3MB) and no more than a side of A4. Links and PDFs are accepted, and we will call you if we need any more information. Any form of artwork is viable, from drawings to performances, sculptures and films, we would love to hear your responses and ideas (please do bear in mind we thus far have no budget, so any costly media or technology cannot be provided by GV Art.)

Deadline for proposals – Friday 7 June 2013. Please email them to only.

Selection decisions will be made by the curator no later than 10  June 2013.

Many thanks,

GV Art.

Tom Jeffreys is an art critic and curator. He is Editor of the Journal of Wild Culture, a new online magazine exploring the fertile intersection between nature and culture.

GV Art is a contemporary art gallery which aims to explore and acknowledge the inter-relationship between art and science, and how the areas cross over and inform one another. The gallery produces exhibitions and events that create a dialogue focused on how modern man interprets and understands the advances in both areas and how an overlap in the technological and the creative, the medical and the historical are paving the way for new aesthetic sensibilities to develop.
