Every two years NN Contemporary Art hosts its Open Exhibition of work by artists from across

the world in a wide range of media. The show is selected by a changing panel of judges; this

year’s panel were co-directors of originalprojects Kaavous Clayton and Jules Devonshire and

artist and Goldsmiths Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Practice (Studio Practice) Roxy Walsh. 166

artists responded to the open call submitting 347 individual works. From this selection the

judges chose 73 artists to feature in the exhibition.

The Open Exhibition launches at NN on 12 January 2018 at 6pm and visitors will be able to see

a wide range of artworks: from a video about slugs to utopian philosophy, from washing

machine parts and wool to photographs of doves and much more from across the globe

including Ukraine, Iran, Lithuania and the UK.

The Open is a selling show and gives visitors the opportunity to buy the artworks in the

exhibition by emerging and leading artists. Visitors will be able to ask the gallery front desk for a

price list and NN can arrange delivery of the artwork to homes, offices or as gifts after the close

of the exhibition.
