Pivot Culture – Call for Proposals

R-Lab is a contemporary art organisation run by postgraduate Contemporary Art Theory students in Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh. We aim to collect and present a multitude of‘pivots’that might enact societal and artistic change post-pandemic.  We seek to explore how different artworlds have adapted and survived during the pandemic.  Reflecting the membership of our R-Lab, we seek to reflect upon Chinese and European cultural experiences during the pandemic.  We hope that exchanging Chinese and European visions of post-pandemic possibilities can have a long-lasting impact.



R-Lab Open Call is an invitation to Chinese and European art practitioners or those based in China and Europe to share with us their experiences, stories and/or artworks which document how they have pivoted – in one way or another – to cope with the pandemic period (March 2020-March 2021).  We will curate and present the most vibrant responses as part of our online platform, launching in the latter half of April 2021.

We are open to supporting as wide a range of media as possible. We want to hear your ideas and proposals!
