Translocation and Dislocation Exhibition 
March 2024

For several years here at CollectConnect we've been interested in reaching beyond the gallery walls. Exhibiting art in unexpected places using non-traditional methods. For our Translocation and Dislocation exhibition we will choose a different location for each artwork, the art might be placed in a complementary location (to add to the narrative) or juxtaposed against a competing backdrop to create new meaning. 

Submission is by invitation. Send your physical artworks to either Dean or Alban's home address. Remember to keep artworks small (10cm x 10cm), as they'll be placed in a public area. Or alternatively send an email with your written, digital or film work to Dean, Alban, Bryan or to Deadline for submissions have closed

Placement of works
We will find a location for each of the art objects or written pieces or film 
A First Responder will create a response that takes into consideration both the art itself and the location.
First Responders can be other artists, or writers or keen art lovers, so there is no uniform response. 

As well as the art existing/exhibited in their location we will also photograph or film it. The photograph of the artwork and the First Response will be published here, on the website/blog, throughout March 2024. It will also feature daily on the CollectConnect Facebook page (although FB is banning us at the moment). Artwork cannot be returned (to the artist) for this exhibition. Part of the joy of this exhibition is to see how long the artwork remains in situ, and how the location might change around the art.

You do not need to create work specifically on the theme, but it is always more interesting if you give it consideration. 
Translocation - the act, process, or an instance of changing location or position.
Dislocation - disturbance from a proper, original, or usual place or state.
a situation in which something such as a system, process, or way of life is greatly disturbed or prevented from continuing as normal.
feeling that you are in the wrong place or that you are not connected to things or people around you

Your Information
When we publish the artwork/writing on the website we often include a biography of you. We're aware that some of you have been exhibiting with us for nearly 15 years. If you would like to update your biog then fill out this form -
It also includes a section for the artwork title, and any other useful information you might like us to consider when we place your art.
