CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Application Deadline: December 31, 2017
(If you're looking to submit your work to the Young Space website, please go to the Submit page!)
Kate Mothes of Young Space and Claire Abitz of Standard Projects are again joining forces for a juried exhibition to take place in the upper level gallery at Standard Projects in Spring 2018! We happily invite submissions of contemporary visual art for a group exhibition from 23 March - 5 May, 2018, with an opening event on Friday, 23 March, 2018!
This project continues our collaborative effort to highlight artist-led initiatives and urban-rural exchange in contemporary art. Utilizing the Internet as a vehicle for ideas, we experiment with whether it can also be used to "collapse" art world geography, and bring projects from around the globe to a space that emphasizes a rural setting as a locus of collaborative practices through maker resources, education, and exhibitions.
Selected work will be promoted online and available for sale in an online gallery on young-space.com.
Submission fee is $25. Entry deadline is 31 December 2017. See below for other important dates!
All proceeds are put directly toward Young Space and Standard Projects to help with operating costs, advertising, and to further both missions of promoting and supporting artists, artwork, and ideas through development of resources, a regenerated residency program for 2018, and other projects.
About Young Space + Standard Projects
Young Space is an alternative online and curatorial platform emphasizing early-career contemporary artists with a goal to build meaningful relationships with and opportunities for artists internationally by using the internet as a vehicle for producing projects and resources IRL. Please visit the blog and Instagram to get a sense of the curatorial mission!
Standard Projects is an artist-led initiative in a former police station in the village of Hortonville, WI, just outside of Appleton, WI, and about two hours north of Milwaukee. [Visit previous artist-in-residence Robert Fraher's beautiful impression of the place here: The Quality Without a Name.] Standard Projects aims to provide an inclusive work space and environment for artists and makers by offering a seasonal artist-in-residence program (currently being regenerated), a venue space, and spacious workshops emphasizing wood, metal, and textile.
