Filter Photo Open Call for Exhibition Proposals

Filter Photo   /   Deadline: 10/31/20

Filter Photo is pleased to announce our annual Open Call for Exhibition Proposals. We welcome photography proposals of all types, whether traditional or experimental or coming from an emerging curator or a veteran artist. Filter Photo hopes to attract a broad range of proposals that reflect the creative diversity of the contemporary photography community. Selected proposals will be offered an exhibition slot at Filter Space during 2021 – 2022. Proposals will be accepted through October 31st, 2020.

All exhibition proposals should relate to photography and/or lens-based artwork, however, this definition is purposefully open-ended—moving-image work, installations, and performances related to photography may all be included in proposals. Artists, curators, and collectives are all welcome to submit proposals. For example, a single artist could submit a proposal for a solo show, or a collective could submit a proposal for a large group show.

Accepted proposals will receive:
-A 4 to 6-week exhibition at Filter Space to take place 2021 – 2022
-At least 1 exhibition reception
-The opportunity to host an event in conjunction with the exhibition (e.g. a workshop or artist talk)
-Exhibition marketing including printed postcards, an email blast to Filter Photo's mailing list, and other social media promotion
-Stipend (amount varies annually but not less than $350 for a solo artist)
