Next year Hastings City Art Gallery will again be hosting the successful EAST biennial exhibition. The approach to this iconic exhibition is changing for 2018, with a more tightly focussed curatorial approach and the opportunity for stronger engagement with a smaller group of artists. EAST will open at the gallery in August 2018. We invite proposals from artists and designers with Hawke’s Bay connections, across all media. The final submission date is 30 January 2018.
