Eligibility:

Ortega y Gasset Projects is an artist-run curatorial collective and exhibition space founded in 2013 and located in Brooklyn, NY. 

We are pleased to announce an Open Call for TWO Solo Exhibitions to open in September of 2021: one in the main gallery space at OyG and one in The Skirt, OyG's dedicated space for site-specific installations.

Both opportunities will include an opening reception on Saturday, September 11, 2021, $500 honorarium for each artist/proposal, and one programmed event (an artist talk or a closing event), and will be promoted on OyG social media outlets. OyG Co-Directors will work with the artists and make studio visits leading up to the opening of the exhibitions, if possible. The artists are required to fully participate in the exhibitions' installation and deinstallation.

Visual artists of all disciplines and geographic locations are encouraged to apply. The artists will be selected by a panel of OyG Co-Directors based on the quality of their work and commitment to their practice. Artists are highly encouraged to specify which space they'd like to exhibit in, the main gallery space or The Skirt (The Skirt space is dedicated to site-specific installation work). The OyG Co-Directors will make the final decision on which space the winning proposal will be realized.

An alternate list of candidates/runners-up will be posted on our website and are considered for future programing at the gallery. Past/future exhibition artists that we discovered from our past Open Calls include: Austin Ballard, KT Duffy, Patrice Helmar, Jihyun Hong, Familien Iglesias, Ezra Jude, Cameron Granger, Carl E. Hazlewood, Rose Nestler, Norm Paris, Ben Pederson, Padma Rajendran, Adam Liam Rose, Winnie Sidharta, Kuldeep Singh and Kate Stone.
