Luan Gallery is currently seeking exhibition proposals to consider for the 2020 Gallery Calendar. The closing date for receipt of submissions is Monday 13 May at 5pm.

Applications for the following are now being accepted for the following themed open call:

Queer Migration: the movement of members of the LGBTQ+ communities from rural Ireland to urban centres questioning the presumed utopia of rural Ireland and issues of acceptance, oppression, Irish values and community mindsets.

In light of the mass migration of people internationally and how this “age of migration is centrally implicated in the construction, regulation, and reworking of sexual identities, communities,  politics, and cultures… and how sexuality constitutes a dense transfer point for relations of power” (Eithne Luibhéid Queer/Migration An Unruly Body of Scholarship, Duke University Press, 2008) we are inviting artists to submit artwork that responds or addresses the concerns and questions inherent in the concept of Queer Migration.

Potential subthemes specific to the idea of Queer Migration may include:

Migration |Loss | Grief |Growth | Healing |Adaptation | Identity|Transition| Temporality

Submissions should be made to with Queer Migration in the subject heading.

Applications should include the following:

    • Cover letter
    • Artist CV and statement
    • Exhibition proposal
    • Images
    • Links to audio visual or film works

Full details on submission requirements can be found on:
