AUTOMAT 2022 Open Call

AUTOMAT 2022 Open Call

This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 27, 2022

AUTOMAT announces a call for artworks for their 2022 Open Call exhibition, open to emerging and mid-career artists working in any medium in the Philadelphia region and beyond. This group exhibition will be curated by AUTOMAT members and will run from July 9 – August 9. Please see submission requirements to apply.

Open calls introduce your work to the curators and present possibilities for future exhibitions even if you are not included in this group show. AUTOMAT members often review their open call records when preparing for new projects.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

Each artist must fill out the digital application HERE and pay the application fee at the bottom of the page. Both the application form and payment must be submitted before May 27th to be considered for exhibition.

​Artists may submit up to 3 artworks, and include up to 2 images per work. Video projects or documentation of other time-based work can be submitted via a public YouTube or Vimeo link. Please limit these to no longer than 10 minutes in length. Experimental and installation works are encouraged, though a detailed installation plan must be included.
