ArtCycle Announces A New Prize | Open Call for MFA Students and Recent Graduates
ArtCycle.com is pleased to announce the ArtCycle Discovers Prize, a new initiative that will add young and emerging artists to our roster of first-rate talents. We’re giving ten MFA students and some recent graduates a head start in the marketplace by introducing their work to our ever-growing base of collectors.
This is an open call competition for second-year MFA students who are currently enrolled in a visual arts program in New York City. We are also accepting submissions from recent graduates, no more than two years out. Ten will be selected for a one-on-one crits, in a gallery setting, with Barry Schwabsky, art critic for The Nation and co-editor of international reviews for Artforum. These 10 finalists will also comprise a new section of our website, where collectors will find an array of fresh and inspired works of art offered at affordable prices.
There will be a $1,000 cash prize for the winner of the “ArtCycle Discovers” prize. In addition, the top five finalists will be invited to participate in a group show at the exciting new Gallery Brooklyn.
We do not accept applications by regular mail. Please submit the following to [email protected] in a PDF document or zip folder no later than November 1, 2012:
- Cover sheet (include name, phone number, and current school or alma mater)
- Artist statement (no more than one page)
