the fifty fifty arts collective is currently accepting proposals for the 2020 programming season. All applications must be received by Sunday, October 13 at 11:59PM. Applications may include individual and group exhibitions and curatorial projects relevant to the field of contemporary art practice. To apply, you must submit a portfolio consisting of the following:
Exhibitions generally run for the course of 2.5 weeks. Exhibition hours are available on the about page and are based on volunteer availability. If you would be available to gallery sit during your exhibition, please include this in your proposal.
The fifty fifty requests 30% percent of all art sales - these funds are used to maintain our programming space. However, given the often experimental nature of some exhibits, we do not require work to be available for sale.
Although the fifty fifty arts collective requires the aforementioned submission package accompanying any proposal of work, we also seek to meet the needs of individuals or collectives who may experience barriers throughout the application process. Please note that we are a volunteer-run collective that attempts to strike a balance of our commitments to the collective and to our individual schedules. We will do our best to accommodate alternative modes of presenting one's application but we do request that you communicate with us regarding your application if it differs from our submission requirements at least two weeks prior to due date. Please feel free to email us here firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the submission process.
Most importantly, the fifty fifty programs work through a collective adjudication process. We accept work based on its ability to fulfill our mandate. We suggest that applicants familiarize themselves with our exhibition archives and with our mandate prior to submission. Our mandate can be found here
