Exhibition Open Call

Open Call for Main Gallery and Project Room: 

The Open Call is currently closed for review and will reopen in early 2019. Check back for details in the new year! 

Details: Locust Projects hosts a yearly OPEN CALL for exhibition proposals, with the aim of enabling local, national, and international visual artists to experiment with new ideas and media. We encourage artists to propose experimental, site-specific projects that are engaging and risk-taking that extend your practice in concept, scale, and/or scope. We encourage artists from all backgrounds and working in any medium looking to present experimental projects to apply. We accept applications year-round via this online submission process. Proposals will be reviewed every few months, on a rolling basis. Incomplete proposals will not be considered.

We will contact artists who are selected to discuss the proposal in further detail, estimate costs and scheduling feasibility. Contracted artists’ will receive a project budget which may be applied towards production/fabrication, materials, professional/technical support, installation/construction labor and assistants, shipping, and other costs above and beyond basic infrastructure provided by Locust Projects. They will also receive a W.A.G.E. certified rate stipend for their artistic labor and time and housing for out-of-town artists for the duration of the installation (and for research prior depending on availability). 

We have two available spaces for artists to submit proposals:

Our floor plan is available below. You can also see images of past projects on our website in PAST EXHIBITIONS. Below we have included a list of guidelines to follow while creating your proposal.

Locust Projects receives a large number of submissions and unfortunately we are not able to offer individual feedback on submissions. We will be in touch with you directly if we are interested in developing your project.

Locust Projects is proud to be W.A.G.E. Certified (Working Artists in the Greater Economy), ensuring that we have and we will continue to compensate artists fairly. For more information on W.A.G.E. certification, click here.
