Open Call: Exhibitions and Artist Projects

Getting Here ktdcshuttle

Deadline: November 1, 2017

Knockdown Center seeks exhibition proposals for our gallery space! Are you a curator or arts organizer looking for a space to stage an exhibition? Do you have an artist project that needs a home? Send us your exhibition proposal by November 1 for consideration!

*Please note: Proposals for group shows should not include the organizer’s own artwork, we do not rent our space for exhibitions, and we do not host MFA exhibitions at this time.

Knockdown Center’s mission is to be responsive to the needs of cultural producers making experimental and cross-disciplinary work, and to provide a platform for in-depth inquiry from varying viewpoints across diverse formats. Through an open proposal process, we offer artists, curators, and organizers the freedom to challenge traditional notions of presentation and reception.

Deadline: November 1, 2017
