Warbling: International Open Call for London Exhibition

Warbling International Open Call for London Exhibition

Warbling is an artist-run, independent platform that focuses predominantly on organising inclusive pop-up brick-and-mortar exhibitions in London, UK. More information about the project and the artist behind it can be found here.

Each Warbling exhibition open call begins with a title, it is completely up to each artist submitting to consider if and how the title might relate or sit nicely alongside their ongoing practice, your submitted artworks will be taken into consideration within the context of the exhibition as a whole and how they might be read alongside the other participating artists. However, there is no theme per se, the exhibition will have many different threads and ideas running throughout, formed by the submissions received. The title this time will be The Very Hours Pass Unnoticed.


  • International, UK-based and London-based artists are all welcome to submit for the exhibition.
  • All mediums of visual art will be considered and there are no size restrictions.
  • Work submitted must be new within the last 2 years, (2022 – 2023).
  • If selected, you may be asked for additional images/information for promotional purposes.
  • Artists who have exhibited with Warbling previously are welcome to make a submission, each exhibition has always included a small number of artists from past shows.


  • Artists may submit up to 5 distinct pieces of work for consideration.
  • There are no size or medium restrictions.
