HEREart provides emerging and early career visual artists and curators access to space at an active, well-located multi-arts center. We are interested in exhibitions that creatively work with our unique spaces and engage audiences with artwork that is specially curated to function within a busy environment. This focus on interactive space naturally leads HEREart to function as the center of a community of artists. HERE is a very appropriate place for today’s active and interactive visual art: art that often moves, makes noise, and physically engages the viewer. HEREart seeks to snag these passers-by and engage them in a dialogue with the space in which we move. HEREart is invested in supporting artworks of all media and various content (painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, collage, media), but we concentrate on new work that in some way addresses the special conditions of our space.
HEREart presents 6 exhibitions annually, curated by guest curators. Exhibitions will take place between January and December 2018 and include curator-driven collaborations between artists, as well as large-scale initiatives by solo artists. HEREArt will provide one art installer for one day and a $400 budget (which must include shipping and transportation costs). We will also cover the costs to promote the show via our website, dedicated e-blasts, press release, and postcards (all of which HERE will design). Lastly, we will host an opening reception with wine.
Application Due: Wednesday, November 1, 2017 by 12:00 noon.
