DEADLINE:5 April 2020

Drawing Lab Paris allows independent curators to present emerging or established artists’ work by applying to this open call.

Drawing Lab Paris is a private art center dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of contemporary drawing. Artists are invited to occupy the 150m2 space, to try on new techniques, to create innovative works of art, and to propose a new point of view on contemporary drawing.


This call for project concerns only duos composed of a curator and an artist. Artists or curators under the age of 25 are not eligible for this call.

The artist and the curator must present an exhibition project of contemporary drawing exploring all of its aspects.

The project, as well as the artworks must be specifically designed for the Drawing Lab, that produces the exhibition.


The selected projects will be presented to the public during a 2 months period in 2021.

The Drawing Lab allocates a budget of 20 000 euros VAT not included for each project. This budget includes: the artworks’ production, the artist and curator’s payments, the artworks’ transportation and, if needed, the artist and curator’s defrayal.

For foreign artists willing to obtain a residency to work in Paris, a partnership with the Cité international des arts can be asked. The residency’s fees will be included in the production budget.

The artist and curator’s fees should not exceed 30% of the budget.
