Exhibition opportunity open to individuals, collaborations and collectives, presenting new and existing work. Deadline for proposals 10th August 2014

QUAD, Derby’s centre for contemporary art and independent film, presents an exciting opportunity for artists to exhibit work around QUAD’s Extra Gallery Spaces as part of QUAD’s upcoming Supernatural season. This group exhibition will respond to the themes and narratives explored across the season of Supernatural which includes an exhibition of work by renowned artist Susan MacWilliam, a programme of talks, film screenings, workshops and much more.

QUAD is seeking new or existing work by contemporary artists that engages or encounters the supernatural. From fortune telling to cataloging superstitions; spirit photography; paranormal activity; or the documentation of widely practiced beliefs around the supernatural, we want to see your work. We are particularly interested in work that engages and responds to historical manifestations and practices of the supernatural but we remain open to broad interpretations of the brief.
