CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
This opportunity is now closed. Keep an eye out for future announcements!
(If you’re looking to submit your work to the Young Space website, please go to the Submit page!)
The online exhibition will run Friday, January 18 – Sunday, February 10, 2019.
Submission fee is $15. See below for important dates.
Young Space invites submissions of contemporary visual art for an online exhibition in early 2019! The second online-only Young Space exhibition, this is an opportunity to submit your work for consideration for a curated “virtual” show.
How it works (please read carefully!)
Similar to other Young Space exhibitions, work is curated into a cohesive exhibition from submissions by Young Space founder Kate Mothes. The show is presented on an autonomous website that is promoted on yngspc.com and via social media, and each work is highlighted individually on the @yngspc Instagram throughout the run of the show. Artists are not required to ship work unless it is sold. If work sells, Kate coordinates the sale, and the artist ships to the buyer directly from the studio!
How is it different from previous calls?
- Each artwork must be photographed to a professional standard (ie. good lighting, high resolution). It is preferable that there is a front/overview image, as well as side views and/or detail shots to give an “experience” of the work. Kate may request further images.
- Artists whose work is included in the exhibition agree, if work sells, to package and ship the work in a professional and safe manner, or have it professionally packaged, and posted at the most economical rate. Potential shipping costs are important to keep in mind when considering which work to submit! Prospective buyers are responsible for shipping, however at the time of sale the artist will communicate with Kate about the best methods and postage rates for shipment, depending on the size/scale of work, before the sale is confirmed.
- Artists must agree to ship internationally if work sells.
- Artists must agree to keep the work exclusively available for this exhibition during the length of the exhibition. ie. It cannot be exhibited or for sale elsewhere during the dates that it is available online.
