All Sluice activities and events are by invitation only. In the first instance a curatorial proposal is sought and admittance is based on this. Consideration is also given to the programmatic background of the project.

Sluice is strategically non-thematic, non-institutional and non-profit. If you are unfamiliar with Sluice, read the 'about' section prior to submitting. If you wish to be considered for future Sluice projects please complete and submit the form on the right.

What happens when artists and curators self-organise?  

How do artist/curator run galleries and projects defined primarily as sites of communication manifest? What position can and should we occupy in relation to the broader arts ecology, to the commercial art world, to institutionalism? How can we advance emergent discourse via increased interaction on a local, national and international level? Can adopting and re-purposing existing structures benefit the self-organising artist and curator? How is social capital accrued, by what mechanisms and for what can it be exchanged? Does participation equal collaboration? Does authorship become fluid in the artist/curator run context? Is an exhibition an artwork? Is an organisation an artist?

Sluice - run by artists and curators - assumes the form of a collaborative, provocative artwork. The authors of which are everyone that comes into contact with the artwork.
Sluice strategically adopts structures in order to showcase artist, curator and emergent discourse, projects and galleries.

In addition to our extramural activities, exhibitions, talks, screenings, magazine, we stage a non-profit fair in London and a roaming international expo every alternate year:
