 About the Exhibition….

This is a call out for LEAVE and REMAIN artists of all mediums interested in responding to the role of ‘news’ during Brexit. "Take Back Control” will offer audiences a chance to relive the gut wrenching EU referendum through a week of national newspapers and through this lens perhaps share some insights into UK press agendas. Successful applicants will display their work alongside a large private collection of newspapers from the week leading to the Brexit vote.

Applicant artists are invited to visit the collection of newspapers ahead of the application deadline at one of three open studios. The show will run on 14th-24th March 2019 at the Crypt Gallery, it’s right next to Euston & Kings Cross Station.

 How do I apply? Applications have now closed.

It is free to apply however there will be a hanging fee of £30 if you are chosen which will go towards exhibition materials and promo.

Please include the following:


 Selection Criteria

 Open Studio & Brexit Newspaper collection

As part of a wider art research project, we have taken great efforts to collect over 70 newspapers from the week of the Brexit vote. These newspapers serve as a unique snapshot of the British media and the public’s most exaggerated perceptions of both LEAVE and REMAIN campaigns. Artists are are invited to visit, discuss and seek inspiration within this collection at one of three open studios before the application deadline. It will be hosted in Bryden’s Art studio at Candid Arts right behind Angel underground. The open studios will be an opportunity to meet other artists, the  organisers, explore the collection and discuss Brexit.

Attending open studios?
