Artists

Here’s a quick summary of what we are looking for and how to get involved with the exhibition and when we’ll need stuff from you!

What? … Memorabilia – is an exhibition of artwork and found objects inspired by childhood memories.  The exhibition will be curated by Carne Griffiths who organised the 100sqft exhibition in 2009, which travelled from London to New Orleans and featured the work of almost 500 artists. The exhibition will form a part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail, guaranteeing good footfall and exposure for involved artists.

Memorabilia is primarily designed to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital.  We are looking for work from artists of all backgrounds that respond to early memories.  The idea is to create a feeling of nostalgia and well being and for the exhibition to be fun and lighthearted.  Here are some topics that will hopefully inspire you to create work for the show.

Toys and Games
Memories of places
Food
TV and Film
Music
from the ….20’s 30’s 40’s, 50’s 60’s 70’s 80’s 90’s !!!

If you wish to be involved, your artwork or displayed memorabilia objects do not need to be available for sale but if they are, a minimum of 30% of sold work will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital, but contributors can choose to donate a higher percentage if they wish.
