OPEN CALL for artwork around the theme "Pause" to be featured in digital publication

Not Selected At This Time is pleased to announce their first open call! Artists are invited to submit their visual work(s) around the theme of "pause."

Not Selected At This Time is a digital publication exhibiting work by visual artists who are underrepresented in the arts by traditional means. Because we believe class (and therefore white supremacy and patriarchy) should not determine an artist’s ability to exhibit, we vow to subscribe to a donation-based submission model, with no fees required by the artist at any point. We prioritize showcasing work by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, sex worker, incarcerated, non binary and women artists. Due to the nature of our publication, video-based work is not accepted at this time. We look forward to seeing your work.

Last October, we celebrated some of the most bewitching artists and enchanting works at our first annual The Witching Hour exhibition. I’d love nothing more than to revive such a wicked soirée. However, it is imperative that we prioritize our health and safety while COVID continues to leave heartbreak and devastation in its wake.
