Exhibition Opportunities

Summer Juried Show – Every year Vox works with one or two jurors, typically artists or curators selected by the membership, to organize an exhibition selected from a nationwide open call. The show takes place during the month of July. This call is open to anyone who makes art to be shown in traditional gallery spaces, though we do consider proposals for film/video and performance/workshop-oriented projects.

Guest Exhibitions – It is a priority for Vox Populi to bring in artists/curators from outside of Philadelphia to share their work. Once per year, we have an open call for artists/curators residing at least 50-miles outside of Philadelphia who would like a solo show in one of Vox’s gallery spaces. We typically show 3-5 artists/projects per year through this opportunity. Applications open in the fall. Collective members are given the opportunity to review and select the artists for this call.

4th Wall: Film/Video Screening Program – Featured alongside our exhibitions, our Black Box performing arts space is used during open gallery days to project new film/video work by emerging artists as part of our 4th Wall series. We have hosted long and short-form film and video work by local, national and international artists through this program.

Events and Rentals

Vox Populi offers two ways to use our Black Box for events: through partnerships or rentals.

Partnerships – We offer evening access to our 1000sq.ft. Black Box performance space to other organizations with whom we share mission alignment to organize music, film, and performance events. Vox covers costs through a door split and proceeds from a bar set up at partnerships event. Partnerships are determined based on individual or collective interest in the proposed event or organizations. We review partnership proposals on a rolling basis.

Rentals – Vox Populi also offers low-cost rentals of our Black Box performance space (equipped with a PA, mixer, projector and various A/V equipment) for one-night or short-term events organized by non-affiliated organizations. Often, those who want to pay an upfront fee and keep all event proceeds pursue rentals instead of partnerships. Or, when a partnership event does not seem appropriate, rentals may instead be pursued by the interested party. Rentals may be pursued at any time.

Interns are vital to Vox Populi’s operation and development. An internship at Vox Populi provides exposure to the world of contemporary art from an alternative, collective perspective for those considering a future in the arts as an artist, curator, or administrator. Interns work closely with the Executive Director and artist membership on all aspects of gallery management to contribute to the daily functioning of the gallery.

Internships are available for course-credit through arrangements made with your college/university.
