San Jose ICA’s Sandbox Call for Artists

Gotta love new art opportunities!

CALL FOR ARTISTS: San Jose ICA Announces Sandbox Projects
Deadline to Apply: July 6, 2012

The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) is proud to announce Sandbox Projects, an opportunity for West Coast artists to create and exhibit experimental artworks in the ICA’s Focus Gallery. In the Silicon Valley, technologists use the term “sandbox” as a figurative place to experiment with new code or ideas. In a similar spirit, the ICA’s Sandbox Projects is a space that supports emerging and mid-career artists to experiment, take risks and develop works that would not otherwise be realized. Open to all media, the program encourages site responsive, ambitious, architectural and large-scale works.

The San Jose ICA will award an artist/artist team with a $3500 honorarium to design, create and complete a project for a March 2013 exhibition. The honorarium can be used towards project expenses including materials, supplies, transit of artwork (both ways), travel, per diem, and artist fee. The San Jose ICA will additionally support the project with access to a team of professional preparators during install and de-install, provide marketing for the program and an exhibition opening.

April: Guidelines available.
July 6: Application deadline
September 7: Announcement of artist/artist team
March 2013: Exhibition Opening

Information, details about the program, and guidelines on how to apply are available for download h.
