LOOSEgroupartists are an independent London-based artist collective, made up of artists of all creative disciplines. LOOSEgroup organise a programme of regular exhibitions in the capital, with an open-entry format. Our exhibitions are thematic and if your work fits, then artists are welcome to join us for one or many of our exhibitions. Submission are subject to curatorial choice and gallery space but we welcome artists at all stages of their career.
As well as being the home of the collective, LOOSEgroup’s website is a hub of useful advice, practical guides and high quality reviews, features and discussion for contemporary artists. We have a passion to make art accessible to all and to help artists of all walks of life and stages in their careers, gain a foothold in an often financially prescriptive art world.
LOOSEgroup artists also run occasional workshops and informal crits and discussion in the capital and further afield, with a new programme to be announced shortly.
If you would like to join us as either an artist or a review/feature contributor, then please get in touch.
