CUE Art Foundation (NY), Open Call for Applicants: Solo Exhibitions and Curatorial Projects
Deadline: March 31st, 2018, 11:59pm EST
CUE’s Open Calls provide artists and emerging curators the opportunity and necessary resources to realize an exhibition at CUE’s storefront gallery in East Chelsea, New York.
Each year, a panel of established artists and curators select two solo exhibitions and one curatorial project to be realized at CUE. Finalists are paired with a member of the selection panel, who works with them as a mentor throughout the process of planning and mounting the exhibition.
Exhibition Program: CUE aims to present new and exceptionally strong work by under-recognized and emerging artists based in the United States, and is committed to exhibiting contemporary work of all disciplines.
The exhibition selection process consists of a nomination and open call hybrid, with three types of opportunities for artists and emerging curators. This includes a series of Nominated Solo Exhibitions, a Solo Exhibition Open Call, and a Curatorial Project Open Call. In line with CUE’s commitment to providing substantive professional development opportunities, exhibiting artists and curators receive mentorship support throughout the process of planning, promoting, and curating the exhibition. In addition, exhibiting artists each receive a $5,000 honorarium and an accompanying exhibition catalogue with an essay written by a participant in CUE’s Art Critic Mentoring Program.
Curatorial Program: With the aim of encouraging curatorial research in tandem with exhibition planning, the Curatorial Project Open Call provides one deserving curator or curatorial team the necessary resources to realize an innovative project in CUE’s space in 2019. CUE provides institutional guidance and resources to the curator, who produces a group exhibition with related public programming and an accompanying exhibition catalogue.
The selected curator will receive valuable mentor support from an established artist or curator on the selection panel, including installation guidance in preparation for the exhibition. In addition, the curator will be awarded a $2,500 honorarium; a budget of $2,500 to divide amongst participating artists and program speakers; and a production budget of $2,000.
