Call for Entries

IHRAF '20

at the

Wild Project Theater

195 E. 3rd Street, East Village, NY

December 7-13, 2020
 

New York City's International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF) and Wild Project Theater issue a call for proposals for the fourth annual International Human Rights Art Festival, December 7-13, 2020 at the Wild Project. 

We are looking for performance pieces in all media by NYC-based artists, which are built around a social concern.  We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.  We believe that words spoken from the heart enter the heart, while words spoken from the mouth or out of anger or frustration, never get past the ears. 

There is no fee to apply.

All accepted performances will receive a production stipend, full tech support, PR and marketing support and free rehearsal time, depending on availability.

Deadline is July 1, 2020. 
Final decisions will be issued by August 31.

Please note: The planned production cannot have been produced in New York in 2020.  All performance pieces must be brought to the festival completely production-ready.

Deadline: 
07/01/2020

24th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS: International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art

Eligibility:

CALL FOR ARTIST SUBMISSIONS 2020

JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY proudly hosts an annual call for artists for the 24th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS: International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art. The call is open through 17 JUNE 2020 and the exhibition participants are selected by an ever-changing group of three prestigious arts professionals. The exhibition itself is installed in the gallery for the entire month of September with an opening reception in conjunction with the Arts District New Orleans' First Saturday Gallery Openings on 5 September 2020, 6-9pm.

The exhibition was created in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. NO DEAD ARTISTS has become an exhibition that has time and again discovered new and emerging talent and is one of the most celebrated art exhibitions in the South. 

The exhibition's name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. NO DEAD ARTISTS turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. In the '90s, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and subsequently grew to include artists of Louisiana. In 2010, the exhibition expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire United States and the call went international in 2014.

Each year, hundreds of artists submit thousands of works with the hope of being in the select few to exhibit at JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY. The exhibition is reviewed annually by D. Eric Bookhardt (Artpapers and Gambit Weekly). The opening reception marks the beginning of the arts season in New Orleans and is attended by thousands of art enthusiasts. 

The exhibition has been a springboard for numerous artists leading to national press coverage, recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections. Each year the gallery invites a panel of renowned arts professionals and collectors to select the newest creative talents.

As the GRAND PRIZE, one jury-winning artist is awarded a solo exhibition at JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY to take place the following year.
