Deadline February 14: SELECT will be held at the former Dia Building on 22nd Street in Chelsea. Our prime location places SELECT directly in the densely populated gallery district, adjacent to the highline and steps from the Chelsea Piers.
SELECT | NYC will take place in the former home of Dia: Chelsea, which houses one of the most iconic site-specific pieces of art from the Minimalist Movement: Dan Flavin’s Untitled, 1996. This will be the last year that this historic building- the site of so many important art historical interventions- will stand as is. SELECT’s presence in this space marks the dawn of a new paradigm within the Contemporary art community. Thusly, the curatorial theme of SELECT | NYC is to look both back and forward with the impact art movements have had within their own context, and dually, the impacts that movements have had within social circumstances.
In light of this theme, the SELECT team encourages exhibitors to consider the ideas of historically influenced work, the future of the art world, and socially engaged artistic practices.

The open application period ends on February 1, 2015 and the staff of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival are eagerly looking forward to reviewing all artists’ submissions!

Artists who have never participated in TRAF, who want to try out a new medium—or who are relatively new to their artistic process—are encouraged to apply.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
