  • Call for Entries – Boston Biennial 2016

    Deadline February 15: Boston is simply the best town ever. LA can have the Olympics, we have something totally way cooler than that – the Boston Biennial! And as trend-makers and others in the know are well aware, 2016 will usher in the 4th and most ambitious incarnation of this beloved local institution. Steeped in the tradition of our charming seaside village, the BB4 will build on solid foundations of bank robbery and creative cussing to bring the world a Biennial that only Boston could produce. And we can’t do it without you. Well, then, what are you waiting for, a frigging written invitation?

    Submit your work here, and add your vision to the colossus that will be the BB4. If your work is selected by the jurors for inclusion in the BB4, it will be displayed on a digital projection for the entire month of April 2016 at the BB4’s primary venue, Altantic Works Gallery, a member-run collective and artist community that is far too sexy for Milan, New York, and Japan. And if your work is one of the multitude of prize winners, you will invited to display your winning piece in it’s fleshy 3D entirety as well. There will be (at least) two gala champagne receptions during the course of the Biennial – which all included artists will be invited too.

    We know (from hard experience) that artists just love to wait until the last possible moment to respond to calls for entry. But there are great reasons to break from this time-honored tradition and enter the BB4 early.

    You will have a much better chance of having your work promoted as part of the publicity for the BB4. We feature an entry of the day every day during the entire entry period – sending a chosen image out on FB to several thousand people – and linking to the entrant’s website or facebook page. Additionally, we send out Entry Sampler Email Blasts several times during the lead up to the contest, highlighting some of the most interesting work that we have received. Near the end of the entry period we are swamped with the number of replies, whereas at the beginning is much slower – greatly increasing your chances of being included in one of these publicity vehicles. Not to mention that your image could be selected to appear on a postcard or a poster for BB4!
