cabinet-of-wondersClosing date for submissions: Monday 5 March

Submissions are sought from artists and guest curators for the next outing of โ€˜The Cabinet of Wondersโ€™, to be installed in April 2018 in the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland.

The ongoing project is presented in glass display cabinets located in the Foyer of the Linenhall Arts Centre, a public concourse in a busy arts centre.

Each vertical cabinet (dimensions 160x40x30cm hxwxd) is divided into 4 sections (each 37x37x28cm hxwxd) separated by glass shelving. Artists are invited to send proposals (images with details and text as appropriate) for inclusion either in an individual cabinet section/s, or for full cabinet installations. Proposals should reflect the โ€˜Cabinet of Wondersโ€™ theme, and also bear in mind the public nature of the location in terms of suitability for all ages. All media will be considered, and artists are encouraged to bear in mind the 3-dimensional nature of the display setting. For further details, including cabinet diagrams and images, plus documentation of the first and second Cabinets, see

Submissions comprising artist details, proposal description/outline and image/s plus image details in a single PDF or Word document attachment (no larger than 3 A4 sheets MAXIMUM and 5Mb in size) with your name as filename, should be emailed to:

The Cabinet of Wonders project is instigated and curated by Ian Wieczorek.
