The Show Anything Show 2020 is an open call for artists to exhibit simple, fast, vibrant, insightful and diverse work. We want to invite artists to present art and performance at the iconic Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh.
Anyone who would like to be involved must arrive on the 20th March between 12 pm – 3 pm to install work and then enjoy a magnificent evening! We accept work from emerging and established artists as well as performers and anyone working outside the conventional art boundaries.
Note: only video-work is accepted via WeTransfer from artists outside Scotland who wish to take part but cannot attend the event.
The ‘Show Anything Show’ is a chance for artists, at all stages of their career, to get involved, get feedback on their creative endeavours and meet other artists. On the night, we are open to artists giving a 5-minute talk and testing out new performances and poetry.
The ‘Show Anything Show’ does not want to be a pristine and beautifully curated exhibition, but a gathering of creative endurance. Alternatively, if you can’t bring work, bring yourself and make on the day!
It is free to submit work to this event, and all you must do is bring (or send) the artwork.

1. Bring some work or make some work
