Athens Institute for Contemporary Art

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: August 31, 2024 – Athens Institute of Contemporary Art is seeking contemporary art in all media that explores or references COMPULSION, a term that can apply to the impulse towards artmaking, a common phone-induced behavior, an uncontrollable act, a desire, a need, or a sense of being driven. #COMPULSION can come upon you any time, anywhere.

Now!  Channel your compulsion to share your work and enter up to three works in the 2024 juried exhibition without delay!

All artists are invited submit up to three contemporary works in any media exploring or referencing SURFACE. Work should have been created within the last two years and not have been shown previously in the Athens area.

Juried by Erin Dunn, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the esteemed Telfair Museums of Savannah, Georgia.

$500 in Cash Awards

In recognition of the economic challenges faced by many artists, you may elect to pay either the standard fee of $25 or a reduced fee ranging from $5-$20.

Your entry fee goes to cover the exhibition expenses and to help sustain the gallery, which is a 100% community-supported and 100% volunteer organization, providing a space for artists in Athens for 23 years.


ATHICA will refer all sales inquiries directly to the artist, with the request that artists donate 30% of the sale back to ATHICA to help sustain the gallery.
