OPEN CALL for NYC Artist: 2021 Fall Season Art Gallery





The Juice Box’s October Black aims to be an educational and creative resource anthologizing the soul of the vast diversity within Blackness. This is to engage a diverse public in the exploration of the resilience and contoured beauty of “Black”. October Black seeks to provoke memorable, immersive artistic thought through offering art rich in African diasporic history, traditions and experiences. October Black also seeks to offer artists (both visual and performing arts) an opportunity to have their work actualized.


Art submissions must speak to the heart and soul of the Black experience by emphasizing its diversity and complexity. Artwork must also have an overture of hope and optimism as expressed in the “triumphs of our experiences”. This exhibit’s mission is to inspire and curate the Black artistic narrative through innovative fine art techniques. Preference will be given to artist who:

  • NYC resident,
  • Identify as a Black woman, 
  • Teaching Artists,

Photography and Permissions
The artist verifies he/she owns or has copyright(s) to the artwork being submitted or on loan and therefore, allows the guest curator to display the artwork in its galleries during the exhibition dates.

Transportation and Shipping

The artist is responsible for the transportation of the artwork to the gallery location.   

If artist decides to use a shipping company for the pickup and delivery of the artworks, the artist recognizes the risk of damage during transit. If the artist requests to have the artworks shipped back, the artist must provide a pre-paid shipping label (UPS, FedEx or DHL). The artist must ship the artwork in a re-usable shipping container(s). Black Pulp is not responsible for damage occurred in shipping to or from The Gallery.  


October Black is made possible by the New York City Artist Corps. Black Pulp will be responsible for general installation support and basic in house advertising but does not necessarily fund all/additional exhibit needs.
