Call For Artists! SaveArtSpace + The Untitled Space + Art4Equality: Public Art Series + Exhibition
“Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness”

Have your artwork on a billboard in NYC this fall! 
Deadline to submit: August 10th 

The Untitled Space, SaveArtSpace, and Art4Equality have joined forces for an empowering public art series of billboards in New York City launching this September 2020, along with an exhibition of the artwork created for the series to be presented at The Untitled Space gallery this fall. Revolving around the theme of “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness” the public art series and exhibition is now open for artist submissions via an open call curated by Indira Cesarine. Deadline to submit: August 10th. 

“What do these words mean to you: “Equality,” “Life,” “Liberty,” “The Pursuit of Happiness”? We live in an unprecedented time, our liberties robbed by a global pandemic, which laid painfully bare the inequities that have plagued the most vulnerable in our society for far too long. Political polarization in the United States is reaching critical mass with a divisive political system at war. Realities of social inequality and racial injustice are challenging our ability to have confidence in a promising future. With the 2020 elections approaching, we feel it is a crucial time to create an opportunity for artists to respond to our current situation, with the artwork presented in a public platform, where it can reach an audience of millions of people every day and promote an inclusive dialogue. The public art series “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness” seeks to empower, enlighten, and shed a ray of hope on a city that has been under a dark cloud, in a country that is in tatters not only by an invisible virus, but also by political and civil unrest. The billboard transformed into an art display is an innovative, and ultimately accessible way to present contemporary art, transforming spaces normally dedicated to advertising into public art that has power and impact.” - Curator Indira Cesarine

Artists are asked to be creative, with artwork inspired by 1 or more of the words or phrases of the theme. Each billboard will feature your artwork along with your name and the title of the artwork. The gallery exhibition will compliment the public art series with a presentation of unique and limited edition prints of the artwork. This open call is open to all artists, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or practice. All mediums are welcome.
