Proposals are accepted annually from Emerging Curators for the Emerging Artists Summer Exhibition. The Emerging Artists Summer Exhibition will be curated by a selected Emerging Curator and will be made up of Emerging Artists. Proposal must show history of at least 3 prior curatorial projects successfully presented to a public audience.
The selected curator’s exhibition theme will be announced in the open call process for the emerging artists program. The theme should be relevant to political, social or environmental issues. Curators must select 50% of their artists from the pool of emerging artists. The exhibitions must include at least 60% women artists, as part of Smack Mellon’s mission to support women artists.
Smack Mellon provides curators a stipend and a budget for artists’ stipends. The curator is encouraged to stop by the gallery during gallery hours to look at the space in order to tailor their proposal to the space.
