Isolation | Digital Residency 


A continuation of our recent Clarity project we have decided to introduce the following digital residency ‘Isolation’ a chance for artists to create and have artwork displayed through the murze platform, hopefully keeping us all busy,  responsive and somewhat sane during this uncertain time.


From the 6th - 12th April Murze will be holding the artist lead project, each day artists will have the ability to share their stories, ideas and artworks through our website, and of course social media. You will be asked to share daily updates throughout the seven day period, either creating one final piece or a new piece of artwork each day. For those that wish, we will have a set prompt for artists to focus their work on, a theme that each artist can respond to - (‘Our World’ - you will receive further details nearer the time) All artists will be featured on the Murze platform throughout the residency.


By the end of the process we will hope to have a collection of works from a variety of artists (like our Clarity project) that will exist on the Murze website over the coming months for us all to reflect on and enjoy - we all need a good bit of art to indulge in right now. Our team will subsequently continue to promote the project and your artwork through social media and consider your artworks for future issues, again like our Clarity Residency. 


  • Non-refundable Entry fee of £10

  • The project will run from the 6th - 12th April

  • Each day artist’s will release updates on their work and process 

  • Deadline for entry is the 5th April 2020

  • There are no other requirements, this residency is open to all 


All artists who enter this project will see their work featured on Murze. The process will give contributing artists a space to explore different processes and directions in their work.

OUR BODY | ANATOMY 


Photography and Art Call


Issue Twelve is all about Our Body, Identity and Experience. We are looking at Body, Anatomy and Form. 


This artist call simply seeks artists and photographers exploring the human form, it is something we as a species are constantly fascinated by whether in cave paintings or the modern day selfie we are obsessed. We want to pick the idea of the body apart, remove taboos, explore sexuality and identity, ultimately celebrating the human form through the eye of artists. 


This artist call is open to portraiture, photography, painting and any other form of artwork exploring the human form. We are inviting contemporary artists (including amature) to submit a portfolio of work (roughly up to six images) relating to the theme, embracing and celebrating the human figure. 

Images submitted must be at least 300 DPI
Non refundable admission fee of £3

Deadlines for entry is the 10th May 2020


The portfolios submitted will be reviewed and juried by the Murze team, and artists will be selected for feature in murze issue Twelve. Selected artists will receive both exposure on our online platform and a spread of both them and their practice in the magazine, coming out at the end of May.
