Call For Proposals: Artist Multiples, Limited editions


Deadline:
Mon Nov 09, 2009 00:00

The Present Group, a quarterly art subscription service, seeks proposals from artists for projects that are reproducible in intent. We are looking for projects that will result in a limited edition, artist multiple, or a single work that consists of multiple parts. Every year TPG subscribers receive limited edition works from 4 different contemporary artists. A $500 honorarium is awarded to each season’s artist. Artists must submit a proposal to submit[at]thepresentgroup.com or via USPS: The Present Group Attn: Submission 593 8th St. #3 Oakland, CA 94607. For more information please visit: www.thepresentgroup.com, to download full submission guidelines: http://www.thepresentgroup.com/TPG-submissions.pdf

What is expected of the artists:
Propose a project where the final product will be reproduced art pieces. This is an opportunity to branch out and test a different approach to art making. If you already work in multiples, that’s fine too. What we send to our subscribers could be a piece from a limited edition or parts of a larger work. The project will be made exclusively through The Present Group. We understand that similar themes and images may be used throughout your other work, however you agree not to create the exact project again.

What we look for:
Most importantly, your work must be reproducible in intent. There will be no “original”. Each piece will be the work itself, or a part of the work. Our editions are between 50-100
We choose based on the piece’s Visual, Conceptual, or Experiential interest.
In order to keep our subscribers exposed to a large variety of work, we keep in mind the progression in which they are released, in terms of media, themes, style.
Is it feasible? Can we afford to make it? If we love your project but don’t think we can afford to do it now, we may ask to hold on to your proposal for a future possibility.

Appreciation for Selected Artists:
- $500 (This is an honorarium; this does not go toward the making of the pieces)
- 4 of the produced work for your own collection or to sell on your own.
- A captive audience of Art Lovers and Collectors
- All the contextual information we create for your piece, including artist info, critiques, and video will remain free on-line as long as TPG exists
