Salon des Refusés: Members Show 2020 OPEN CALL

Salon des Refusés: Members Show 2020 OPEN CALL

EMBASSY is pleased to announce the next Open Call for submissions to our forthcoming annual Members Show 2020: SALON DES REFUSÉS

As always the EMBASSY Members Show is a fantastic uncensored, all-embracing opportunity to test as well as showcase your work in the company of a diverse, friendly and supportive audience, to celebrate another year of working on our practices, and to support the continued running of EMBASSY.

Anything you wish to showcase is welcome, but this year more than ever we especially want your weird, wild, sketchy, unsettled, unpolished, homely, humble, emotional, social, peripheral, non-conforming, upending, in-betweening, institutionally rejected, refusing-to-be-finished work things.                           Work in ALL MEDIA will be accepted. 

Physical works must be submitted via DROP-OFF to EMBASSY Gallery at 10b Broughton Street Lane (EH1 3LY) on the following days: 15th, 16th + 17th January 4 – 8 pm  

Digital works may be submitted on USB or emailed as downloadable files to

ALSO! Given the continued success of our annual members performance nights, we’re excited to say that this year’s opening of the members exhibition on 24th January will feature a dedicated open stage for performance and sound works. 

We therefore also invite submissions for live sound, music, spoken word and performance that you wish to test. These could be things that require a dedicated audience or more durational happenings to take place within the exhibition over the course of the evening. Non-durational pieces should be fairly short – no more than 20 minutes in length. 

If you wish to perform please send outlines of your plans to by Sunday 10th January. These should include a short description of the work you wish to present live, details of duration and any technical requirements. 

Current members may submit one artwork for exhibition (+ one performance proposal) as part of their annual membership. New or lapsed members can join or renew their membership of EMBASSY for £15 either:

  1. ONLINE –
  2. IN PERSON  – when you come to drop off your work

We can’t wait to receive your submissions!
