Space 42 is currently running an OPEN CALL and up to $5000 Grant for Main Gallery exhibition proposals, with the aim of enabling local, national, and international visual artists to experiment with new ideas and media. We encourage artists to propose site-specific projects that are engaging and risk-taking that extend your practice in concept, scale, and/or scope. We encourage artists from all backgrounds and working in any medium to apply. Proposals should include an overall vision for the Main Gallery. Collectives and artist collaborations are encouraged to apply as long as the work is presented as a singular vision. There is a $25 entry fee to cover cost.
MAIN GALLERY OPPORTUNITY
- Solo exhibition of new work created specifically for Space 42's Main Space (approx. 11,000 square feet)
