About The Open Call

During its 30th year of existence, Vox Populi is pleased to announce our annual open call to guest artists, curators and collaborators to extend and challenge their artistic practice. We are seeking applications for exhibitions by national and international artists, curators, and collaborators from outside the larger Philadelphia area and without commercial representation, who want to find new audiences.

Vox Populi is interested in proposals that take place in experimental media and employ alternative methodologies, pushing boundaries in terms of form and content. We seek work that takes risks, is ambitious, timely, and experimental.

Vox Populi accepts applications for solo exhibitions by individuals or collective proposals to show in one of our four gallery spaces. We cannot accept requests for a specific gallery. Selected guests are expected to arrange for their installation and deinstallation. Upon acceptance, the work(s) must be ready and available to exhibit in 2019. Vox Populi’s membership will select and group submitted projects. Selected proposals will receive an honorarium of $500.

Submission Guidelines

Artists can submit available works (1-10 work samples) for exhibition or specific proposals; site-specific installation proposals for new works must include images of previous works or installations.

Please note, this is an opportunity for artists, curators and collaborators living outside of the greater Philadelphia region to gain exposure with a Philadelphia audience. Vox Populi will only consider applications outside of a 50 mile radius from the city.

Application fee is $35.

Note on Fees: The money collected from this open call is used to fund the selected guest exhibitions. Your application and payment is directly supporting the work of fellow artists and Vox Populi’s gallery space. While Vox Populi would ideally offer its open calls free-of-charge, our budget does not currently allow us to do so. Thank you for your understanding!

More details on the application process, including types of media files accepted, can be found via Slideroom.

More information on past and current work Vox has supported can be found in our exhibition archive.
