We are thrilled to announce our next season of the In Practice program in support of emerging and under-represented artists in creating new work for presentation at SculptureCenter. We are currently inviting artists to submit proposals for new projects to be presented during the 2014 season. Artists selected for the In Practice program will receive a $250 honoraria and up to $1500 in production support. The level of production support will depend on the scope of accepted works and available funding.

During 2013-2014, SculptureCenter will be undergoing extensive building renovations. We are taking this opportunity to encourage artists to propose projects outside of the confines of traditional exhibition formats. Please note, the lower level galleries will be unavailable during this time. The main space and Gallery B on the upper level may be considered for short-term, temporary presentations of performance, audio, film and video works. Publication projects, proposals for the website, public works, the building exterior, and interventions into other parts of the city are also welcome for this year's In Practice open call. Artists are encouraged to experiment with unconventional display and exhibition formats.

SculptureCenter seeks proposals that offer new ways of considering sculpture or furthering the understanding of the discipline and how it can intersect with other mediums. Proposals will be reviewed relative to the following criteria:

  • Quality of the proposal and prior work
  • Responsiveness to the site and the specific context of SculptureCenter
  • Feasibility of the project

SculptureCenter staff and advisors will conduct a preliminary review of proposals. A limited number of artists will be contacted for further information and/or studio visits during the fall. Submitting artists will be notified by email by September 30, 2013. No calls please.

To be considered, please go to the SculptureCenter website and fill out the application by 11:59pm on June 17, 2013. Please note that we are not accepting submissions by mail, drop off, or email.

IMPORTANT: Your application must be submitted through our website by 11:59pm on June 17, 2013. We strongly recommend that the application be completed online several days in advance of the deadline, as we anticipate high volume on our server on the night of June 17th.
