Artists’ work needed for map exhibition

ARTISTS are invited to submit work inspired by maps for a forthcoming exhibition.

Hastings Museum and Art Gallery plans to run the event next year and is calling for people to send in entries.

The museum already has a permanent collection of historic maps but would like to extend the reach of the exhibition by exploring map-making in its broadest sense, bringing the subject up-to-date with a display of contemporary work inspired by maps and/or mapping techniques.

Councillor Trevor Webb, lead member for leisure at Hastings Borough Council, said: “Hastings Museum and Art Gallery has wonderful collections which can provide all sorts of creative inspiration, and exhibitions like this are excellent ways of demonstrating the importance of historical artefacts to the work of contemporary artists.”

Any types of media will be considered and the invitation is open to professional artists based in Britain.

The selection will be made by the curatorial team at the museum. The exhibition will take place from March to June next year.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, November 7. For full details email
