General Call for Submission

General Call for Submissions: The Lab, San Francisco


The Lab is an interdisciplinary arts organization which supports the development and presentation of new visual, performing, media, sonic, and literary art. We assist artists in the creation of new work and showcase work of the highest quality by emerging and underrepresented experimental artists. Of particular interest is work which crosses boundaries, encourages evolving artistic and social dialogue between artists and audiences, and develops the culture and community of the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Lab seeks proposals of new work that fully utilizes our space or engages with the space in a nontraditional manner. Submissions that can accommodate weekly performances in conjunction with exhibition are encouraged. The Lab accepts submissions from emerging and experimental curators for group visual art exhibitions or performance series. A curator's own artwork should not be included in the project proposal. If accepted, The Lab encourages curators to post an open call for entries on The Lab's website, although this is not required.
At this time, The Lab especially encourages submissions to be presented in the Ticket Booth and Front Gallery.

*Front Gallery: Primarily for solo visual artists. 123 sq feet. Four walls approx 8' wide x 10' tall.
*Ticket Booth: For single-channel new media works. Small (4x4) ticket-booth closet adjoining entry hall to the LAB. Currently we only have the ability to exhibit DVD works in this space.

Proposals for the Front Gallery and Ticket Booth should indicate why the work would be well suited for presentation in these spaces.
