APPLICATIONS FOR MADE IT 2023 ARE LIVE!
IT’S BACK AND BIGGER THAN EVER!
GRADUATE OPEN CALL CLASS OF 2022/2023
Short Supply are delighted to announce our North West Graduate Art Prize for another year running - with a twist! This year the show is sponsored by more fantastic organisations than ever, and as announced with all the bells and whistles last week, we have some brilliant guest producers onboard to keep us on our toes - the recent graduate collective Ellsquared!!!
For those who don’t know, MADE IT is a selected showcase of North West art graduates established in 2019. Since then Short Supply has been platforming graduate artists and providing them with a crucial springboard opportunity through exhibitions and further opportunities across the region. Our MADE IT alumni have gone on to achieve impressive things; exhibiting internationally, starting their own collectives and getting on the radar of some of the most exciting artists and galleries in the country.
Ellsquared and the selectors will shortlist 25 artists from the applications to be a part of the MADE IT 2023 group exhibition. If you graduated in 2022 or are graduating this year, you’re in luck! Here’s what’s up for grabs as well as a spot in the show:
