EXTENDED Deadline: Monday, March 14, 2016
BlackRock Center for the Arts is now accepting proposals for solo, themed and group exhibitions to be presented in their gallery spaces January 2017 – December 2017. Visual artists, independent curators, and coordinators of artist collectives and arts organizations who are over the age of 18 and live or work in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia are encouraged to submit Exhibition Proposals.
BlackRock hosts exhibitions of contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artist working in all media, to include site-specific installations, video and other time-based media, performance, new technologies and experimental forms. BlackRock provides curatorial and exhibition support, publicity via print and social media, as well as hosting community engagement events.
While BlackRock previously required that all two-dimensional artwork be hung from the gallery cable hanging system, we now allow alternative installation methods, to include work that may require nails, screws or other fasteners. Artists are responsible for transport of artworks, as well as materials and assistance with installation, and attending scheduled events.
Additional information, including a link to the online submissions system can be found on the BlackRock website: http://www.blackrockcenter.org/galleries/call-to-artists/
