Opportunity is around every corner – this phrase may seem ridiculous when thought of in the context of the art world, but it’s true. If you know where to look, and if you’re not afraid to put yourself out there (and face rejection) you absolutely will find outlets for your art, your practice, your personal enrichment, funding and more. Here are few to get you started.
The Living Art Museum in Iceland invites artists to apply for an autumn 2023 exhibition. In their own words:
“Special emphasis is placed on collaboration, process and conversation. Artists are invited to apply on the basis of their own work and artistic process, instead of submitting a pre-defined exhibition proposal. When reviewing applications, the board of The Living Art Museum selects up to five artists to work together on the museum’s autumn exhibition in 2023, and therefore applicants have to be open to collaboration with other artists.”
For more information and to apply, visit the website. Deadline for applications is August 31.
