SOLOS 2023 Call for Proposals
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 6, 2023
Notification Date: February 2023
Exhibition Dates: Between April and December 2023
Application Fee: None
Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington is currently accepting proposals for SOLOS 2023, a series of solo exhibitions by Mid-Atlantic artists. Contemporary artists living or working in the Mid-Atlantic region are invited to propose solo exhibitions to take place in one of the Museum’s gallery spaces. Proposals are accepted through an open call and selected by guest jurors, in consultation with Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington staff. The exhibitions selected for SOLOS 2023 will take place across multiple exhibition seasons, rather than happening simultaneously. They will last 6-8 weeks and take place between April and December of 2023.
Artists are encouraged to propose new bodies of work, installations, or projects and to consider the available exhibition spaces in their proposal. Exhibition proposals should include the preferred gallery for the proposed work, especially if the artist feels strongly about exhibiting in a particular gallery.
