Open Call: “DRINK ME”


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: An art exhibition and event by Beth Ross in collaboration with Empty Shop

You may have or know someone who has, languishing in a cupboard at home, strange and unknown bottles of alcohol or indeed, unusual non alcoholic brews. They are the kinds of bottle that turn up at a party, are bought whilst drunk on holiday or are a well-meaning present from friends. They invariably remain unopened

If you have, we would like you to become a contributor to our event and exhibition.



Firstly, photograph your bottle following the instructions below:

– Locate your bottle, then see the example on
– Using white paper, write a couple of sentences about how you came to have it and print your name and location on the paper.
– Place it behind the bottle, or lie the bottle on top.
– Take a good quality, lots of megapixels, digital photo.
– Email it to by 7th December.
– Tell everyone you know about the project.







Secondly, bring your bottle along to the event (Empty Shop HQ, Durham, UK on the 14th December 2012) so that it can be shared and enjoyed. We will print off the work for the exhibition, and post information and photos of the event on the Empty Shop website. If you are unable to take your own photo, contact us to arrange to come down to Empty Shop.

If you would like to donate your bottle to the opening party/event, but can’t attend, please contact us on to arrange to drop it off or send it.


***This exhibition is open to all. Worldwide submissions welcome. Multiple submissions are allowed. No bottles containing animals, for obvious reasons.***
