Portfolio Smack Mellon Mid-Career Artists Exhibition Opportunities

Smack MellonNew York, United States


Opportunity Description

International Deadline: Ongoing – Smack Mellon is a nonprofit arts organization located in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Smack Mellon’s mission is to nurture and support emerging, under-recognized mid-career and women artists in the creation and exhibition of new work, by providing exhibition opportunities, studio workspace, and access to equipment and technical assistance for the realization of ambitious projects. We see ourselves as a vehicle whereby under-represented artists can create, explore and exhibit their creative ideas outside the concerns of the commercial art world, offering many artists the exposure and recognition they deserve.

Smack Mellon reviews prints, digital images and DVDs from Mid-Career Artists wishing to have their work considered for potential two person or group exhibitions. We define a mid-career artist as someone who has been working as an artist for over 10 years. We support mid-career artists who are without commercial representation.

Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis but notifications are sent out annually.

Please visit our webpage for complete application details.

Artists involved in exhibitions are responsible for the execution and installation of their own artwork. Artists should understand that they are responsible for delivering their work to the gallery, installing and de-installing their work. Smack Mellon does not have a full time staff of preparators. Smack Mellon staff can assist in installation of work requiring a bucket lift or special mounting, when arranged in advance. Our staff may also assist artists with installation of other complicated projects but will not be involved in helping the artist to build their work on site.

Specifics about the installation of artwork, the equipment and resources that Smack Mellon is able to provide will be discussed after the initial proposal has been reviewed and accepted as a proposal under consideration.
