Locust Projects exhibition open calls provide artists the opportunity and resources to create new work in one of the galleries in Miami, Florida (US). The proposals are reviewed by a rotating jury of artists that have previously exhibited at Locust Projects. Locust Projects provides curatorial guidance, production budget, WAGE fee, documentation, and an opportunity to stay in the Locust Projects residency house located just a block away. Applications are accepted annually for the Main Gallery and Project Room.
Locust Projects is committed to presenting new work. Proposals should include new installation based work that has never been presented before specifically designed for one of the exhibition spaces.
Locust Projects presents artists working in any medium and any stage in their career as long as the work they propose pushes their practice in new directions as part of their mission to invite risk-taking and experimentation.
Collectives and artist collaborations are encouraged to apply as long as the work is presented as a singular vision.
