Art in General OPEN CALL FOR PROJECT PROPOSALS (from email announcement):
On January 14th, Art in General launches a new and simple online application for artists presenting project proposals to its new commissions program.
Art in General commissions challenging new work from visual artists. With a yearly open call and a simple online application process launched this year, Art in General invites artists to propose projects in any medium or format—from painting to sculpture to performance to video to other, perhaps undefined, type of art or interdisciplinary work. This open call is for artists with studio or post-studio practice. It has no thematic or spatial parameters. Artists can choose to present a project proposal based on long-standing or emerging interests.
Only complete online applications will be reviewed, replacing all application forms used previously. Information on Art in General's commissions program, as well as the guidelines and online application is available at:
Deadline: Friday, March 31, 2006 at 11:59 PM, ET
Prior to this deadline, Art in General will host a series of public programs to answer questions about the online application and to provide technical support to applicants:
