Locust Projects 20/20 – 20 Artists Over 20 Hours

Open Call

As part of our 20th anniversary season, Locust Projects is organizing a new show celebrating our roots in experimentation. Over a consecutive twenty-hour time span, twenty artists will each be provided a one-hour temporary exhibition. The event will take place in the Project Room at Locust Projects and be viewable from the garage door opening. The space will be divided into two 6’ x 6’ chambers allowing one artist to set up in a concealed environment while another is presenting their work. Each project will be unveiled on the hour and will be recorded on video. After the artist’s hour-long window is over, the projects will be reinstalled in our Main Gallery.

We are looking for proposals for new work in any form that could be presented within the one-hour window in the 6’ by 6’ chamber and be represented within the larger exhibition space. As part of Locust Projects’ commitment to artist experimentation, we encourage artists to explore new forms and media outside of their traditional practice. Additionally we are committed to supporting new site specific works by artists of any practice.

Proposals should include a detailed description describing the one-hour exhibition in addition to how the work will be reinstalled in the main space. Each selected proposal will receive a

$500 production budget and $220 will be offered to artists as a W.A.G.E. fee for their artistic labor and for artists selected from 150 miles beyond Miami, $300 scholarship will be offered to offset travel and any other costs they may incur for their participation .

Artists will be responsible for installing their show in the one-hour temporary exhibition space, deinstalling the work and reinstalling the work in the main exhibition space. While artists from throughout the country are allowed to apply, please note the artists will be responsible for costs for their own travel and accommodations above and beyond the “scholarship stipend” provided to selected artists working 100 miles from Locust Projects or must remotely arrange with someone locally to install their work to their specifications (As all artists are responsible for their installation, Locust Projects cannot provide installation assistance). Locust Projects has a limited number and variety of tools available for artists to use for their installations, we recommend bringing your own.

This open call is only open to artists who have never previously participated in a Locust Projects solo or group exhibition.

The event will begin Friday September 8 at midnight and run twenty consecutive hours to Saturday, September 8th, 2018 at 8pm. We will celebrate the project with an event for the artists and the community on Sunday afternoon. The exhibition will run through October 6, 2018.
