Open Call – TWO SOLO EXHIBITIONS at OyG Projects
Ortega y Gasset Projects is pleased to announce an OPEN CALL for two SOLO EXHIBITIONS at OyG in September of 2018: one in the main gallery space and one in The Skirt, OyG's dedicated space for site-specific installations.
The opportunity will include an opening reception, $350 honorarium for each artist/proposal, and one programmed event (an artist talk or a closing event), and will be promoted on OyG social media outlets. OyG Co-Directors will work with the artists and make studio visits leading up to the opening of the exhibitions, if possible. The artists are required to fully participate in the exhibitions' installation and deinstallation.
Visual artists of all disciplines (and geographical locations) are encouraged to apply. The artists will be selected by the OyG Co-Directors based on the quality of their work and commitment to their practice. Artists are encouraged to specify which space they'd like to exhibit in; the OyG Co-Directors will make the final decision.
An alternate list of candidates/runners-up will be posted on our website and considered for future programing at the gallery. Past exhibition artists that we discovered from last year's Open Call include: Jihyun Hong, Rose Nestler, Padma Rajendran & Kuldeep Singh.
