Deadline: 4 May 2018

Submissions for Open Call 2018 should be idea-driven, poetic, and realized feasibly. Artists should be inclusive and equitable as they engage their ideas and communities with intellectual and aesthetic rigor. Open Call supports NYC’s diversity of emerging talent in many forms—including artistic media, race, ethnicity, age, identity, physical abilities, and experience.

Eligibility and Criteria

  • Early career artists and art collectives (no educational requirement)
  • Disciplines include, but are not limited to, performing arts (dance, theater, comedy), visual arts, music, literary arts, film, fashion, design, and science, as well as interdisciplinary and new-media work
  • Must currently live and/or work in NYC
  • Must be able to commit to three visits/work review sessions within the five boroughs by The Shed’s staff over the course of the commissioning period

Open Call 2018 Artist Benefits

Participation in Open Call is free. All artists/collectives selected will receive a commissioning fee of $7,000 – $15,000 to support the creation of their work. Open Call will occupy various spaces at The Shed throughout the year including one of the galleries, the theater, and the outdoor plaza. This allows for artistic diversity in commissioned works. Open Call artists working in the theater and plaza space will follow each other within a presentation period. The gallery space will be presented as a group exhibition. Because every eligible and complete submitted application will be reviewed by the Open Call panel, the program is an opportunity to present your work and ideas to The Shed’s expert staff and distinguished guest reviewers.

About The Shed

The Shed, opening in spring 2019 where the High Line meets Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s west side, will be the first arts center designed exclusively to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture.

It can physically transform to support artists’ most ambitious ideas.

Committed to supporting artistic invention and nurturing creativity, The Shed is led by artistic director and CEO Alex Poots. He will bring together artists from a broad range of genres and backgrounds. This will include innovative thinkers from the sciences, technology, and humanities to advance culture in the 21st century. Nurturing artists at the beginning of their careers is a central commitment for The Shed. It is as integral to their mission as commissioning and presenting new work by established artists.

One – Call For Artists

One – Call For Artists

New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for One. Remember the Three Dog Night song, “One is the Loneliest Number?” But is it? In this call NYC4PA is looking for those images with a single compelling focal point. It could be a person or thing that is alone in the frame or an element of a large grouping that clearly stands out.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 14 Jan 2018

A lot filled with blue cars with a single bright red one would fit the bill, as would a portrait reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World,” and the six foot tall teacher surrounded by his or her grade school class. Selective focus can isolate a single horse from the herd or a single pedestrian from the crowd on a city street. What about that basketball player leaping in the air for a dunk shot or the prematurely leafless tree amidst a forest of foliage?

The prizes total $3,000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, fifteen juror’s selections, and twenty honorable mentions. Each of the first twenty-five winners have an opportunity to exhibit in a New York City gallery. NYC4PA uses Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen. The exhibit runs for two weeks. In addition, all forty-five winners are posted in a gallery on they NYC4PA website. Winning images are included in an exhibition gallery.

About New York Center for Photographic Art

New York Center for Photographic Art is an organization interesting to photographers. NYC4PA gives photographers an opportunity to participate in a call for entry with a theme.

Submissions can be as many as each artist wishes to submit. NYC4PA is one of the very few organizations that offer this to photographers. There are two live exhibits a year with the winners of two calls in each exhibit.
