We are looking for 2 members of the Society of Scottish Artists to be part of the Installation, Proposals and Performance Submissions Selection Committee for the 124th Annual Exhibition.
This year marks the 130th anniversary of the first ever Society of Scottish Artists exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy. We are really looking forward to celebrating this occasion and this is your opportunity to shape the presentation of the exhibition.
The Society of Scottish Artists is an artist-led membership organisation and encourages all members to contribute to the Society and its activities.
You will be part of a committee of 5 people responsible for selecting artworks for the exhibition, you will view and vote on artworks submitted digitally to installation, proposals and performance submissions.
You will be given access to the online voting system where you will have two weeks to look at each submission and cast your vote. This is done online in your own time by Tuesday 6 September 2022.
Previous exhibitions have attracted around 100 submissions. Please be aware that there is a lot to consider when selecting install works and looking at submissions does take time and you are required to view and vote on every work.
You will be required to attend an online selection meeting via zoom on Tuesday 6 September 2022, 6 – 8:30pm to make the final pre-selections. You must be available on this date.
All artists who have submitted artworks will then be informed whether their work has been pre-selected.
