DRIFT

Submissions are now open for DRIFT!

SSA members are invited to submit work no more than 3 minutes long, in any of the standard moving image genres for this upcoming online exhibition. This opportunity is open to those normally working in the medium, as well as those wanting to start.

Drift – A shifting movement or aimless direction, casual deviations, a wandering. 

The exhibition theme can be interpreted as freely and imaginatively as you choose.

The curators, Su Grierson & Lindsay Perth would very much like this to be an opportunity and a challenge, for both those artists who currently use moving image in their work and also for those who have an interest but have not yet had an opportunity to give it a go. 

All selected works will be exhibited online as well as at the opening screening event at Summerhall Cinema on Friday 9 September 2022, 6.30 – 7.30pm. This event will be followed by a drinks reception and an SSA Social. 

If you need any help with the submission process let us know by emailing either lindsay@s-s-a.org or su@s-s-a.org
