No Jury No prize at Artlink Dunree


No Jury No prize at Artlink Dunree



About the Exhibition
Artlink in Fort Dunree are pleased to host the 2014 No Jury No Prize exhibition which launches on Saturday 15th November. Last year’s inaugural exhibition in the London Street Gallery in Derry was very successful with almost 300 artists and art enthusiasts exhibiting their work. The exhibition is inspired by the Société des Artistes Indépendantswhich was founded in 1884 in Paris with the simple motto and rule – ‘No jury nor awards.’ Once again there will be no jury or prizes and all work will be accepted unless it breaches basic standards in a public gallery. The theme of the exhibition is entirely open – participants can address whatever they wish in their work. It may however be worth considering the context of the exhibition – it will be sited within the military fort on the North West coast of Ireland.
