27th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS

Eligibility:

JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY proudly hosts the 27th iteration of our annual call for artists - NO DEAD ARTISTS: International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art. The call is open through 19 JUNE 2023 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 in September 2023 from 6-9 pm.

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.

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.

Living artists worldwide, at any stage of their careers may apply. All media is accepted. There are no size restrictions apart from the constraints of the gallery walls (up to 19 ft) and ceiling height of 11.5 ft. Work must be available for sale during the exhibition dates.
