Deadline: Aug 4, 2024 at 11:59PM EST

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce that our annual open call for artists is now open. In Practice 2025 will generate a yearlong series of solo presentations.

We invite artists who have not yet had an institutional solo exhibition in New York City to submit proposals for solo exhibitions in designated gallery spaces at SculptureCenter. Artists are also invited to propose off-site projects, publishing initiatives, performances, and nontraditional formats, which will be considered based on feasibility. Up to seven artists will be selected to participate in the program from spring 2025 to winter 2026. Each exhibition will be on view for approximately four to six weeks.

Proposals should reflect new work to be realized in 2025-26. Proposals will be reviewed relative to the following criteria: quality of proposal and prior work; engagement with emerging working methods and idiosyncratic ideas; rigor in connection or departure from prior work and interests; responsiveness to the site and context (physical or otherwise) of SculptureCenter as an institution; feasibility of the project with regard to budget and timeline.

Proposal drawings/renderings are encouraged.
