Call for Submissions CUE Open Calls for Artists & Curators
U.S. National Deadline: 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.
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.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION PROGRAM
CUE aims to present new and exceptionally strong work by under-recognized and emerging artists based in the United States, and is committed to exhibiting contemporary work of all disciplines.
The exhibition selection process consists of a nomination and open call hybrid, with three types of opportunities for artists and emerging curators. This includes a series of Nominated Solo Exhibitions, a Solo Exhibition Open Call, and a Curatorial Project Open Call. In line with CUE’s commitment to providing substantive professional development opportunities, exhibiting artists and curators receive mentorship support throughout the process of planning, promoting, and curating the exhibition.
