CUBEOpen 2011 - Call for submissions

CUBEOpen 2011 is the UK's only annual open competition and exhibition of its kind. Launched in 2007, artists, architects and designers are invited to apply with work that reflects current trends and debates surrounding the spaces and places in which we live, each year the exhibition highlights contemporary insights into the urban environment.

"One of the coolest and classiest galleries around. CUBE continue to stage exhibitions that cover our cities' cultural intermix of fine art, architecture, interior design and contextual theory. While this might sound a bit over-chic and academically dry, in fact CUBE shows tend to be an aesthetic and intellectual delight. CUBEOpen is no exception"

The most outstanding project will be offered a residency as part of CUBELab 2012 - two runners up will be given honourable mentions. The shortlisted entries will form part of an exhibition at CUBE later this year.
