Call for Art: Slippery Slope
Woman Made Gallery
(Chicago, IL)

“Slippery Slope” seeks work that recognizes and adopts pornographic aesthetics and conceptual modes. They encourage submissions that borrow from the ephemera of pornography: theater marquees, tongue-in-cheek narrative, sexual set design; that make use of its modes of production: collaboration, artist as director, artist as sexual actor; that share its vision: sexual arousal, utopian exploration, and the establishment of a relationship between the artist and the voyeur. Work in all media by artists of all genders will be considered.

Deadline: May 15, 2013

Sunroom Project Space
Wave Hill
(Bronx, NY)

The Sunroom Project Space Program is a venue for New York-area emerging artists to develop a special project or new body of work to exhibit in one of the two windowed sunrooms on the ground floor of Glyndor House.  Five artists will be selected for solo exhibitions in 2013.  Work in all media will be considered and artists are encouraged to experiment with the parameters of traditional display and exhibition formats. The selected artists will have between six and 12 months to develop their ideas and to create new work for the project. The installation period is two days for most slots so the project needs to be installed and de-installed quickly. A meet-the-artist gallery talk will be scheduled for each artist. The selected artists will receive an honorarium of $1,500.

Deadline: May 15, 2013
