Artists are invited to submit works or proposals (new or re-presented) that explore bathing as part of FaB Festival 2015, Bath's only annual visual arts festival, being held from Friday 22nd May to Sunday 7th June.
Any medium is accepted including storytelling and performance. Works can experiment with the allegorical, mythological and literary or address primal fears such as drowning and our vulnerability whilst nude. Representations and interpretations of swimming, showering, solo or group bathing are welcomed. The exhibition's aim is allow the audience to become voyeurs of others while they bathe and create a reassessment of the everyday act of bathing.
It is proposed that a wooden Victorian style bathing machine will be built to house some of the works, creating a mobile exhibition space that can travel around the city on a Bathing Trail.
FaB is Bath’s only annual visual arts festival. It actively promotes and celebrates contemporary art, showcasing early career artists and curators, and those who find it difficult to break into (or prefer to operate outside of) the gallery based art scene. Non-profit and entirely run by volunteers, FaB Festival occupies ‘alternative’ exhibition spaces, from empty shops to street corners.
