CUE Art Foundation Open Calls for Artists + Curators

CUE Art Foundation Open Calls for Artists + Curators

This Deadline Expired: Friday, March 12, 2021

CUE Art Foundation is currently seeking Solo Exhibition and Curatorial Project proposals for the 2022 exhibition season. The Open Calls provide emerging and under-recognized artists and curators the necessary resources to realize an exhibition at CUE’s storefront gallery in 2022. The deadline for the current Open Call is March 12, 2021.

Each year, a panel of established artists and curators select two to three solo exhibitions and one curatorial project to be realized at CUE. Finalists are paired with a member of the selection panel, who works with them as a mentor throughout the process of planning and mounting the exhibition. CUE provides generous honoraria—$5,000 for artists presenting solo exhibitions and $2,500 for curators organizing curatorial projects—in addition to mentorship, institutional guidance, a shipping budget, and an exhibition catalogue with a critical essay by a participant in CUE’s Art Critic Mentoring Program.

There will be an Open Calls Information Session Webinar on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 4pm (ET) via Zoom.

Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.
