Exit Art - Call For Proposals

Exit Art is one of New York's most innovative and progressive non-profit institutions. It was founded in 1982 by Jeanette Ingberman and Papo Colo and is internationally recognized as a pioneering institute for the 21st century.

Exit Art consistently presents exhibitions that are historically relevant, political and radical. Now located in Hell's Kitchen, their exhibition space is very large and accomodates work in all media. Their shows helped bring attention for the first time to now firmly established artists such as; Jimmie Durham, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Shirin Neshat, Fred Tomaselli, Nicole Eisenman, Roxy Paine, Julie Mehretu, Sue DeBeer, Rirkrit Tiravanija,
David Wojnarowicz, and David Hammons.

Exit Art curates many of their shows based on an open call for proposals. This is a great way for emerging artists to propose something and possibly be part of a group or solo show. The current call for proposals can be found here.
