Commissions for new work about home, Unreal Estates
Deadline: Sun 20 Dec 2020
Unreal Estates is a project that commissions new work about domestic interiors and ideas of home. We are looking for writers and artists (primarily working in 2D) interested in collaboratively producing new work that responds to these themes.

We will pair up artists and writers to work in pairs to produce a series of images and text/s responding to homes in their local area. Eventually we would like to tour the whole of the UK; for now, we are focussing on these 4 areas:


Participants should have a strong connection with one of these places, ideally living or working here. If you are interested in the project but do not live in one of these areas, please apply stating places you would like to respond to and we will store your application for future reference.

The first iteration was funded by ACE. We are seeking to inform a further application for funding, which requires specific information about artists being commissioned. If funding is successful, contributors to the project will be paid a participation fee.

The first show was in a high street estate agents as well as online. Given the current situation, we are not currently seeking to exhibit the work in a physical location, but to share it on our website and instagram. However, when times change we will seek a venue for a physical exhibition.
