Open Call for Art:

Crashing the Party

presented by The Sculptors Guild and LIC-A

Crashing the Party exhibition 2019.jpg

Curated by Barbara O'Brien

Crashing the Party invites a wide range of interpretations of and responses to the idea and ideals of gender equity, from breaking the “glass ceiling” to political, social, physical, and conceptual ideas. This exhibition will offer an opportunity for sculptors who are questioning and expanding their use of materials, forms, concepts and experiences.

The Sculptors Guild in partnership with LiC-A is interested in supporting a creative platform to expand and broaden opportunities for all sculptors. “What’s now?” and “What’s next?”

Submission Details: Artists can submit up to three artworks with three views per submission.

Accepted Mediums: Sculpture, installation, performance, interactive, and works beyond the pedestal strongly encouraged. The 12,000 square foot gallery has 20’ high ceilings and welcomes large works and installations. Submissions of outdoor sculpture to be sited on land or water are also acceptable, as the Plaxall Gallery is situated on the waterfront of the Anable Basin. Visit the gallery during open hours to see the location. 

This exhibition is open to all New York City affiliated artists living, working or connected with a NYC organization.

Submission Deadline: Saturday, June 15
