Call for Applications - Concept/Focus 2016
The Concept exhibition presents an evocative investigation of contemporary artists in Oklahoma, along with a St. Louis regional artist exchange. The exhibition is designed to nurture, support, and connect artists and arts practitioners; increase exposure for outstanding artists; and foster critical dialogue about their work.
Concept/Focus is a curated group exhibition of new work by 4 St. Louis artists and 4 Oklahoma artists. These artists are selected by the guest curator from proposals and receive a honoraria and curatorial guidance to create new work to debut at the exhibition. This triennial exhibition will be open to submissions from visual artists working in any medium.
The next installation of Concept will open in June 2016 at the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa’s Hardesty Arts Center. The Focus exchange will open in September 2016 at The Luminary in St. Louis, MO.
The Luminary is seeking applications from St. Louis artists for Concept/Focus. Four artists will be awarded $1,500 each to create new work under curatorial guidance.
