Locust Projects is currently running an open call for Main Gallery exhibition proposals, with the aim of enabling local, national, and international visual artists to experiment with new ideas and media. They encourage artists to propose experimental, site-specific projects that are engaging and risk-taking that extend your practice in concept, scale, and/or scope. They encourage artists from all backgrounds and working in any medium looking to present experimental projects to apply. Proposals should include new installation based work that has never been presented before specifically designed for the Main Gallery. Collectives and artist collaborations are encouraged to apply as long as the work is presented as a singular vision.
Main Gallery Project Support:
-$5000-10,000 Project Budget (may include but is not limited to: production/fabrication, equipment rental, materials, professional/technical support, installation/construction labor, assistants, shipping, de-installation) Budget determined based upon dates, scope and scale of project, feasibility.
-Artist W.A.G.E. Fee (approximately $1000)
-$1000 stipend towards flights and ground transport available to artists that live 150 miles away from Miami. (above and beyond travel expenses shall be applied to production budget)
-Accommodation at the Locust Projects Residency house which is walking distance to the space
-Basic infrastructure provided by Locust Projects includes access to existing tool and av equipment inventory, up to 20 hours preparator labor/assistance, signage, installation documentation, and promotional support
The proposals are reviewed by a rotating jury of artists that have previously exhibited at Locust Projects.
The following criteria will be used during the review process:
-Conceptual strength of the proposal
-Strength of past work
-Unique or innovative approach
-Feasibility of proposed project
Please keep in mind, Locust Projects is not a traditional gallery space. If the exhibition could easily be presented in a traditional gallery setting or could be realized without the support of this organization, it is unlikely for them to consider your proposal. Locust Projects do not show existing work, host traveling exhibitions, retrospectives, or group shows. Locust Projects are not a commercial gallery, they do not offer artist representation.
