Summer Residency and Exhibition: Open Call
Seeking Studio Art MFA Students
Locust Projects, Miami’s longest-running alternative art space, invites graduate-level artists to submit project proposals for an exhibition in our 400-sq ft Project Room during the summer of 2020. Exhibition proposals should reflect an expansion of an artist’s practice in conceptual scope, scale, or media. Proposals can reflect new work that will be created for the exhibition that has never been presented before or work created on site. Priority will be given to projects that demonstrate exceptionally unique methods, processes, or concepts, particularly those that could not be presented in a traditional gallery setting with an emphasis on site-specificity and installation. For more information including submission instructions, see Locust Projects' full description of the residency program!
Application Deadline: Sunday, March 29, 11:59 pm
Residency Dates: June 19 - August 5
