Open Call: Poet & Photographer

K6 Gallery is delighted to have been awarded, for the first time, funding from Arts Council England for a major exhibition later this year.

Next Stop: City Bus seeks to commission new work by a photographer and poet for the 25th Anniversary of the City Bus Project.

In 1993, Southampton City Council commissioned poet, Carol Ann Duffy and photographer, Nancy Honey to make new work for a project called CityBus.

The artists were asked to write poems and take photographs whilst travelling on Southampton’s buses; the resulting work was then exhibited on board, unwittingly involving the public in it’s content and consumption.

2018 marks 25 years since this relatively unknown project took place; we’d like to celebrate the occasion by exhibiting the work again at K6 Gallery and re-commissioning the project, inviting two new artists to contribute. The aim is to reunite the public with the original works that provide a rare insight into local cultural and social histories, as well as delivering a new, contemporary reinterpretation of the project.

Anyone interested should read the brief for more details including how to apply. Deadline for both is Monday 10th September at 12pm.
