Ongoing : The Present Group is a quarterly art subscription service. Every year TPG subscribers receive four limited edition works from four different contemporary artists. Each work is accompanied by information to help them gain insight into the piece, its creator, and recurring themes in the contemporary art world. The Present Group is looking for proposals for projects that are reproducible in intent. Each piece can be an artist multiple, or either a part of or a document of a larger work. Their current edition numbers are under 100. The piece is chosen based on visual, conceptual, and/or experiential interest. The project will be made exclusively through The Present Group. It is understood that similar themes and images may be used throughout your other work, however you must agree not to create the exact project in the same form again. Appreciation for selected artists: $500 (This is an honorarium outside of the costs of creating the work — which TPG covers), four of the produced work for your own collection or to sell on your own; all the contextual information we create for your piece, including artist info, critiques, and video will remain free online as long as TPG exists. Submission guidelines are here: http://www.thepresentgroup.com/TPG-submissions.pdf. For more information about The Present Group go to: http://www.thepresentgroup.com.
