2023 Open Call for Artists: The Guardhouse Program

2023 Open Call for Artists: The Guardhouse Program

Launched by FOR-SITE in 2023, The Guardhouse Program invites three artists each year to activate a former military guard station at the main entrance to Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture, presenting new work that responds to the natural and cultural significance of the site and its surroundings. 

FOR-SITE is thrilled to extend an open call for artists interested in developing new work this spring and summer 2023 for installations opening to the public this summer and fall 2023, respectively.

Repurposeful: The Art of Collage & Assemblage

After a year of social isolation, we’ve re-engaged with our local communities and learned that through cooperation there is power to effect change. RePurposeful speaks to a renewed knowledge of our interdependence, and will serve as a celebration of the alchemy that occurs when bringing disparate and diverse parts together to create something new, better, more beautiful, and more purposeful.

What kind of "collage and assemblage" work are we seeking?

We are looking to review both traditionally defined collage and assemblage. We are also looking for work that pushes these formal boundaries but is related to collage and assemblage in spirit. For instance, textile works like quilts are welcome for submission.

stARTup Art Fair San Francisco is a contemporary art fair for independent artists.

Our three-day fair is April 24-26, 2020 at the fun and retro Hotel del Sol, within walking distance to the nearby SF Art Market gallery fair. Exhibiting artists will have a unique opportunity to expose new work to a myriad of collectors, curators, gallerists, art consultants, and writers who will be coming to the city for a weekend of contemporary art.
