Juried by Didier William



Exhibition dates: July 13th – August 5th, 2018

Vox Populi is accepting submissions for its fourteenth annual Juried Exhibition VOX XIV.

This opportunity is particularly for emerging artists without commercial representation who push boundaries in terms of form and content, employ alternative methodologies and want to expose their practice to new audiences. Vox Populi is interested in highlighting work in all media that is ambitious, timely and risk-taking.

The show will take place from July 13 to August 5, 2018. The deadline for the open call is Tuesday, May 15, 2018. The application is on SlideRoom and can be accessed here.

Submission Guidelines

Applicants should submit a short statement, resume and up to five work samples (including images, audio files or short texts). All submitted work must be available and ready for exhibition, if chosen. DO NOT submit the same work to more than one open call.

Selected artists need to provide installation ready work complete with hardware. Vox Populi will exercise the same care in respect to loans as it does in safekeeping its own property. We urge you to consider the DIY and high traffic nature of Vox Populi’s exhibition and event environment. Unframed artworks will not be insured.

The application is on SlideRoom and can be accessed here.
