Open Art 2018 Exhibition

“The Open Art project is a chance for emerging artists to be part of a new virtual exhibition – free to enter, free to share, open to all.”

Last year, the 2017 Open Art exhibition included over 100 pieces of artwork by 72 artists – with a virtually gallery set inside an underground train station. Twelve of these artists were invited to display their work in a gallery in London

The 2018 Open Art virtual exhibition will be taking place in the Sea of Tranquility – on the moon!

Imagine a gallery with walls carved out of white lunar rock and a view of planet Earth in the skies above.

Virtual exhibitions give artists an opportunity to share their work worldwide and in a unique and visually stunning setting. Artists will also be showcased as part of several real-world gallery exhibitions in Autumn 2018 (in the UK and beyond)

You can find out more about the development of this virtual exhibition and follow the project as it progresses – see the Story of Development here.
