The SUMMER MARATHON* was established as a means to re-imagine the traditional ‘group show’: offering any artist (at any career stage, working anywhere in the world) an opportunity to present their work in a solo exhibition (in lieu of a group show) over the summer. Now in its third year, this unconventional approach allows artists to present and thereafter fulfill a solo exhibition during a two-week period over summer 2021.
Any artist with a concerted body of work is encouraged to apply regardless of age, education, or location. The SUMMER MARATHON offers artists a unique opportunity to present their work to a larger audience, and in some cases, offers artists their first solo exhibition. Approximately 5 artists will be selected to present solo exhibitions during summer 2021.
*In 2019, the SUMMER MARATHON replaced the CONTEMPORARY VISIONS group exhibition (which ran for 10 years consecutively) as an incentive to give emerging artists an opportunity to exhibit their artwork in London and to have their work viewed and assessed by an esteemed panel.
