EASTinternational is an open submission exhibition that was launched in 1991 and takes place at the Norwich University of the Arts.[1] Applications from over 1,000 contemporary artists are received each year with approximately 25-30 artists selected to exhibit. Many artists who are now recognised as important figures had one of their first major public showings at EAST including Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Matthew Higgs, Tomoko Takahashi, Zarina Bhimji, Lucy McKenzie and Runa Islam. Some of these have gone on to win, or be nominated for, the Turner Prize.


Selectors for each EAST are invited by Lynda Morris (EAST curator) and the EAST steering committee to reflect emerging political, social and artistic trends.
