Opportunity: Call to artists – RSA Annual Exhibition 2022

Submissions are now open online for the 196th RSA Annual Exhibition.

The RSA Annual Exhibition is the most extensive exhibition of contemporary art and architecture in Scotland. Having been a mainstay of the academy’s calendar since its inception 196 years ago, the Annual Exhibition has evolved over the years, showcasing Scottish art alongside invited international artists, often including topical or political elements, to give an uncensored, independent voice to artists on issues that matter to them.

After the success of its re-introduction in 2019, the Open Art element will return once again in 2022 as a vital component of the RSA Annual Exhibition. Online submission is now open for the 2022 exhibition for works of any scale and in any fine art medium.

While we are excited to be returning to a physical exhibition this year, we want to build on the successes of the online experience forced upon us during COVID-19, which enabled more works to be selected and extended the ways for audiences to discover and engage with artworks through the digital experience.

For this reason we have decided that all pre-selected works will automatically be included in the online exhibition and only those selected at the final physical selection will be shown in the gallery.

There is also the opportunity to submit work as a solely online presentation. These works will only be considered for online selection and open up an opportunity for more experimental practices, for example documentation of installed site-specific work or extended digital video content.

Artists may submit up to TWO works of any size of any fine art size, media, or format.

Entry is £20 per work (£10 for students & under 26s) plus £10 hanging fee if selected.

Artists must register and submit their work online at www.royalscottishacademy.oess1.uk

It is vital that you read the REGULATIONS on the RSA website in full before applying and read the FAQs if you have any further questions.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
