Exhibition opportunities

The call for submissions for 2020 is now open and will close on Friday 17 May 2019 at 5pm

Sirius Arts Centre is interested in working with contemporary artists and curators, both emerging and established, Irish and international. Sirius also has a long history of presenting a wide range of interdisciplinary contemporary art and is currently especially interested in working with artists through a highly collaborative process and in the dialogue between artists, curators, communities and audiences.

Submissions are now open for the next exhibition programme (January to December 2020) and will be accepted until Friday 17 May 2019 at 5pm. 

Artists and curators are chosen for exhibitions and projects in one of two ways – by invitation and by open submission. It is estimated that there will be a small number of slots for solo or group projects in 2020 that will be chosen from the open submission process.

Please read the following information before you apply for the open submission:

Applications are considered for both solo and group projects.

The term and dates of a project will be agreed between the artist(s) and the Director of Sirius Arts Centre.

Sirius Arts Centre offers remuneration to artists exhibiting in accordance with the Arts Council guidelines. However, given the changes in funding streams for the arts in Ireland, it is recommended that, if accepted – artists apply to their own Arts Councils and local authorities to source additional funding towards travel, transportation and production costs.

There is no fee to apply for an exhibition.

For more information, please download and read How to apply for an exhibition at Sirius Arts Centre

No submissions will be accepted after Friday 17 May 2019 at 5pm.

Sirius Arts Centre has been developing its Artist in Residence programme since 1994. The programme receives some funding from the Arts Council of Ireland and Cork County Council and is well recognised internationally. The residency programme is designed to offer artists the opportunity to make work, write, research and develop their practices and to engage in dialogue with Sirius Arts Centre, other organisations in Cork and the surrounding community.

Residents stay in a beautiful, two/three-bedroomed basement apartment in the Sirius Arts Centre’s building, located on the waterfront in the centre of Cobh, twenty-five minutes by train from Cork City. The residency provides residential and work areas to artists.
