Open call

Throes of Grief : Open Call for participants in the SO postcode area

An oppor­tu­ni­ty to join the Throes of Grief Artist Collective.

Throes of Grief (TOG) is an artist-led collective research initiative exploring both the presence and themes of Grief in contemporary art practice. Founded by Annabel Pettigrew in 2020, following an open call and a round of initial in-depth conversations with applicants, a group of eight artists were selected to take part as participants. Participants currently meet online for discussion, presentation of work, peer critique and workshops. In doing so contribute to collaborative research and critical development of practice. Participants are encouraged to engage with the presence of grief within work and practice, and examine any conceptual themes to further the critical underpinning or development of the work we make.
In May 2022 TOG received funding from 'a space' Southampton, as part of their Artist Led Network programme, and as such, are looking to expand and diversify the cohort to include a participant/s from the SO postcode area.
