EFA Project Space 2024-2025 Exhibitions Open Call

EFA Project Space 2024-2025 Exhibitions Open Call is now accepting applications!

Focus: “Folklore”

For the 2024-2025 Open Call theme, EFA Project Space is interested in exploring the notion of “Folklore” in its various forms and aspects. We are looking for exhibitions, community engagements, and public programming that celebrate personal narratives, memories, traditions, and ceremonies. We are interested in stories and experiences that vitalize roots and origins, in works and actions that are not filtered through a globalized lens, and that touch on raw materiality.

EFA Project Space is a collaborative, cross-disciplinary arts venue founded on the belief that art is directly connected to the individuals who produce it and the communities that arise because of it. By providing an arena for exploring these connections, we empower artists, curators, and other participants to forge new partnerships and encourage the expansion of ideas. It is a home for emerging, mid-career, as well as established curators and artists. We focus our attention on community engagement and public programming.
