CFEVA 2020 Visiting Curator Exhibition Open Call
This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 15, 2020
The Center for Emerging Visual Artists invites you to submit images of your artwork for review by their guest curator, Naima J Keith, of LACMA in Los Angeles, CA.
Of the applicants, 10 to 25 artists will be asked to present a digital portfolio of approximately ten images.
One to three of those artists will be selected for an exhibition in CFEVA’s Felicity R. “Bebe” Benoliel Gallery.
The Visiting Curator Program allows CFEVA to showcase the abundance of talented artists from our region to a curator who is not yet familiar with our artist community. CFEVA is proud to create more exposure for the artists we serve and provide beneficial new leads for noteworthy curators.
Naima J. Keith is the newly appointed Vice President of Education and Public Programs at LACMA. Prior to holding this position, Keith was the Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the California African American Museum where she guided the curatorial and education departments as well as marketing and communications. During her tenure at CAAM, Keith has also curated several exhibitions including Genevieve Gaignard: Smell the Roses (2016), Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle: The Evanesced (2017), and Gary Simmons: Fade to Black (2017–9). She was the 2017 recipient of the David C. Driskell Prize in recognition of her contributions to the field of African American art history, and is co-artistic director of Prospect.5 in New Orleans in 2020.
