OPEN CALL FOR 2020 EXHIBITION PROPOSALS

Deadline to submit: August 1st, 2019
Notification of selections: Fall 2019
Deposit Due: Winter 2019

Da Vinci Art Alliance (DVAA) is accepting proposals for our 2020 exhibitions calendar. Now with two gallery spaces in the building, DVAA seeks to construct an ambitious collection of thought-provoking exhibitions for the course of the year 2020. Proposals will be selected for an exhibition slot based upon the quality of their application and supporting materials, artistic merit, social/community relevance, and diversity of curatorial/artistic perspectives.
All proposals will be reviewed by our Exhibitions Committee and DVAA staff. Selected applicants will then be offered exhibition time slots (based on their own chosen availability in their application) and configured into DVAA’s programming schedule.
Applicants may submit as individuals or as a group and are encouraged to activate the gallery space in any variety of mediums. Solo or group exhibitions, performances, large-scale installations, screenings, curatorial projects, interactive programming, and happenings of all kinds are all welcome.

Exhibition proposals are accepted from all DVAA members in good standing.
