Local, national and international artists are encouraged to create site-specific installations as an extension of their representative work. Locust Projects supports the local community through educational initiatives and programming that are free to the public.

Submissions for Exhibitions

Details: Locust Projects is currently running a rolling OPEN CALL for exhibition proposals, with the aim of enabling local, national and international visual artists to experiment with new ideas. We encourage artists to propose experimental site-specific projects that are engaging, risk taking and have a strong conceptual basis. Artists may apply to use space 1, 2, or 3, or a combination of these spaces, depending on the demands of their project. Our floor plan is available below.

Proposals will be reviewed every few months, on a rolling basis.

Locust Projects receives a large number of submissions and unfortunately we are not able to offer individual feedback on submissions. We will be in touch with you directly if we are interested in developing your project. Thank you.

The floor plan is available here.

  • Project floor plan/rendering of proposed project

FAQs

Who is not eligible?

Artists who are or will be enrolled in a college or university art degree-granting program are not eligible to apply.

What type of work can be proposed?

Locust Projects will select artists that propose engaging and risk taking work that also has a strong conceptual basis.

Does the work proposed have to be new?

Proposed projects can consist of existing work adapted for the venue, although we tend to prefer new unrealized work that is created specifically for the space.

Can you give me examples of past projects?

Please see our past exhibitions web page.

If my proposed show requires extensive installation time, is that possible?

Yes, Locust Projects will facilitate projects that require significant installation time. Installations can take a number of weeks, so artists are provided a temporary residence in Miami.

I’m an artist living outside the United States; can I propose a show for Locust Projects?

Yes.

Can PDFs include links?

Yes, they may include links to websites, video hosting services as well as links to galleries, previous exhibitions, and/or past reviews.

Can I submit my application without using Submittable?

Unfortunately, no. All submissions must be submitted through Submittable. Applications that do not follow the guidelines and/or which are hand delivered or mailed will not be accepted or reviewed.

Who can I speak to if I have more questions?
