APPLY | LIFTED 2020: Art Competition for Artists Under 25 | Closes OCT 30
LIFTED is a youth art competition, to allow young artists to experience their artwork in a real space for the first time.
Dark Yellow Dot aims to highlight cultural diversity through young emerging artists with a strong personal vision and innovative approach to art making. We are looking to exhibit the work of three (3) London based artists to display selected works, at the Genesis Cinema Gallery Space in East London.
The Genesis Cinema has been offering entertainment in London's East End since 1912! With a rich and jam packed history, it had once housed performances by Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, and Barbra Windsor to name a few. Now it's a bustling independent cinema with an ambient cafe and cocktail bar and is known for showcasing local artists in its popular gallery space.
Both the artist and the artwork must be in London to be considered, as both Dark Yellow Dot and Genesis prides itself on promoting local arts and culture.

Previously selected artists have said:
“I just wanted to say, thank you so much for selecting my work to be part of Bold exhibition. The event was fantastic and I really enjoyed the opening show. The entertainment and organisation were first class. The response as you mentioned was very positive. You and the team done brilliantly, (which I think you know already, however just felt it needed to be said). So congratulations on a pulling together top event. I will definitely submit work for future events for consideration.” — Francilla Zions I, Exhibited Artist, BOLD (Black History Month Group Exhibition)
“I’ve had some lovely feedback from the public who have seen my work up at Genesis so all very encouraging. This whole experience has given me a great boost to get my website up and push myself forward. It’s great I’ve sold a piece and with the exhibition being up longer there is more opportunity to sell still so that’s great. It’s lovely to hear people talking about my work with enthusiasm.” — Chloe Amy Avery, Solo Exhibited Artist, A Taste of Home
