Early in 2014, AMOS ENO Gallery located in the Bushwick community of New York, presented an exhibition opportunity with an open call for artists to participate in PAST / FORWARD, an exhibition celebrating Amos Eno Gallery’s 40 years of operation. The call has closed and all works have been selected from the entries submitted. PAST / FORWARD will be on view in Amos Eno’s new home at The Loom until March 1, 2014.
Within the past five years, the resurgence of alternative artist spaces, particularly in the borough of Brooklyn, New York, has drawn the attention of the international art world.
Just one of many art galleries and art exhibition projects that are currently accepting submissions from artists, AD Projects is an independent curatorial enterprise supporting the work of emerging and mid-career artists.
Artist Marketing Resources offers a list of hundreds art galleries currently accepting submissions, in PDF format—gain access to the resource list here.
Artist Submissions — AD Projects would like to learn about new work by emerging artists. If you are an artist and would like your work reviewed, please follow the submission guidelines below.
All submissions should include:
▪ cover letter
▪ biography and/or resume
▪ artist statement (up to two typed pages)
▪ articles related to work (up to three reviews/press clippings)
▪ representation of work in jpeg format
Please email your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org
Space Submissions AD Projects’ mission—to mount fresh work by emerging artists in raw, vacant or temporary spaces—places it within a widening movement that has gathered momentum in New York. Several other groups have formed to take advantage of the vast walled-in emptiness that is the result of the real estate bust. AD Projects’ peers include No Longer Empty, SmartSpaces and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
In the interest of reviving the tradition of alternative exhibition sites, AD Projects is always seeking vacant spaces to invigorate with contemporary art. Should you have details for available real estate, please email email@example.com.
