December 22, 2006 by · Leave a Comment 

Information on submitting work for the third Moogie Wonderland exhibition, ‘SPACE’:

  • Date of exhibition: Saturday 13th January 2007, 9pm – 2am
  • Submission deadline: 11th January 2007

Theme and brief: ‘SPACE’

Astronauts, satellites and telescopes attempt to see as far as possible into space, but they are limited to the boundaries of current technology. SPACE is an exhibition that will aim to explore beyond these limitations and delve into our perceptions of space and the great unknown. SPACE also aims to look at the development of space travel and the possibilities that the future may hold. Moogie Wonderland would like to invite artists to submit work for this one night exhibition at Moogie Wonderland. We are only interested in work of a conceptual nature. As the work is being shown during a club night, we are mainly interested in displaying video pieces or slides of your work (if you have digital images, these can be transferred to slides at ). We do welcome installations and art objects but please be aware that your work could be subject to damage (although some artists may wish to submit work that is designed to be damaged). International artists are encouraged to submit work. Artists interested in proposing ideas for a solo show are also welcome.

Background information:

Moogie Wonderland is an art enhanced monthly club night based at The Cellar in Rochester, Kent. The night features contemporary art from professional artists, art students and anyone that fancies a shot at making some art. The idea is to take art to the public – enticing people into an exhibition by running it alongside a clubnight. More information on the club night can be found at

Equipment available:

  • 1 DVD projector
  • 1 Television with DVD player (possibly 2 if required)
  • 1 manual slide projector

We are also interested in hearing from anyone who makes multiples that could be given out to people when they enter the club.

If you would like to exhibit, please email an artist statement, images of your work, or a website link to
