Open Call for Billboard Proposals – 14×48

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

We are currently accepting submissions for our annual open call, and would like to share the application information with the UCLA student community.

Each chosen billboard is accompanied by a supplement which serves to bring the artists’ work into the public sphere. Previous projects have included an artist talk at the International Center of Photography, a collaboration with New York City Housing Authority residents, and classes taught at Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education, among others. Although we are based in New York, several previous artists have not been local, and we can incorporate innovative ideas from individuals in other locations.

Every year we strive to push the boundaries of how public art can exist and who it can serve. We are looking forward to this year’s submissions, and want to extend this opportunity to the next generation of artistic talent. (more…)

InVisible Culture, Issue 28 CFP

Friday, April 28th, 2017

For its twenty-eighth issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the complex and multiple meanings of contending with crisis.

Defined by the global uncertainty of a world afflicted by varied and ambiguously interrelated states of emergency, the present can be seen as a critical historical conjuncture characterized by crisis. In the context of its worldwide occurrence, crisis refers irreducibly to a multitude of circumstances, events, and thematizations: military conflict, debt crises, issues of political representation, the mass migration and displacement of refugees, increasing ecological disruptions. Such ruptures in the social demand constant attention from individuals and communities, constituting a need for committed artistic and scholarly engagements with questions of what it means to be in crisis and how to deal with it.

Deadline: June 30, 2017

Fellows of Contemporary Art: Open Call for curatorial submissions from “emerging curators” for its Curators Laboratory program

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Fellows of Contemporary Art is pleased to offer an Open Call for curatorial submissions from “emerging curators” for its Curators Laboratory program.   FOCA is now publicly requesting proposals for its 2018 season of exhibitions. We are seeking engaging curatorial concepts that will be presented at the FOCA Chinatown exhibition space in January, May and August of 2018.

Fellows of Contemporary Art is an independent, non-profit art organization that collaborates with the art community at large and nurtures the expression of creative freedom in support of contemporary California art and artists.

The latest chapter in our ongoing support for California art and artists is the Curators Laboratory, an ongoing series of exhibitions at FOCA’s exhibition space.  Since our initial Curators Lab exhibition, “Stoneface” in 2007, more than ninety emerging or established artists have been featured in twenty-three exhibitions.  Each project involves public events and some form of documentation.

More information about Curators Lab projects can be found at proposals must be received by email by June 16, 2017 and will be reviewed by the Curators Lab Committee which will select the Award finalists.  These six finalists will be asked to present their proposals in person to the Committee on Saturday July 22, 2017Please save this date as it will be the only presentation opportunityFrom that presentation the Committee will choose the three award recipients for the 2018 exhibitions.  We recommend group exhibitions of three to six artists.  The word “Emerging Curator” is loosely defined and may include curators who are artists, writers or others who conceive of and organize an exhibition.  Artists in the proposed exhibition must be practicing in California, and can be emerging or in their mid-careers.

If you have an exhibition proposal you would like us to consider, please include the following in your proposal:
