In collaboration with the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford we are pleased to announce our new art competition. We invite you to submit your work in any medium on the theme of ‘Magical Thinking’ to be shortlisted by a public vote and then a winner to be selected by an expert panel of judges to include Ashmolean lead curator Sophie Page. One lucky winner will receive two tickets to the Ashmolean’s fantastic exhibition Spellbound – Magic, Ritual & Witchcraft, an exhibition catalogue, exhibition poster and a £25 gift voucher to spend at Broad Canvas.
Spellbound invites visitors to recognise magical thinking as something we all do, a habit driven by basic passions: the urge to be loved, fear of danger, and a desire to protect home and family. Magical thinking is a powerful fantasy, often worked out in rituals and invested in objects. It provides hope and a sense of control, but can also make us scapegoat others and has led to appalling persecutions. It is an essential part of who we are.
