CALL FOR ENTRIES: SOLOS 2012
APPLICATION DEADLINE: July 1, 2011
NOTIFICATION DATE: Sept. 30, 2011
We're pleased to announce that three exciting guest panelists will lead our review process for SOLOS this year, and consider every artist application received: Klaus Ottman, Curator at Large and Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art for the Phillips Collection; Karen Milbourne, curator for the Smithsonian African Art Museum; and JJ McCracken, DC based installation artist and art professor.
WHAT ARE THE SOLOS?
Each year, AAC selects 10 to 14 artists from across the Mid-Atlantic region for solo exhibitions in AAC’s seven separate gallery spaces—or outside on the grounds. Proposals that specifically consider AAC’s space, layout, and surrounding environs are encouraged. Floor plans are available on our website.
WHO CAN SUBMIT?
Artists who produce cutting edge contemporary art in any and all media, and who live or work in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, or Pennsylvania may submit exhibition proposals. Any existing works must have been completed within the last 3 years in order to be considered.
WHAT MATERIALS SHOULD I SEND?
Please submit your printed artist’s statement, resume, written exhibition proposal—describing what you plan to do, how you will do it, and what you hope to accomplish with the show—work samples, and a list of the samples submitted, including the title, dimensions, medium, price or insurance value, and year of creation for each piece.
PLEASE NOTE: MATERIALS WILL NOT BE RETURNED!!! CDs will be discarded at the end of the process, and all paperwork will be recycled. Do NOT send a SASE.
The deadline for this year’s SOLOS call for entries is July 1.
