OPEN CALL for NEW WORK and ONE WORK

Prospect Art invites visual artists worldwide to submit their work for consideration in our ONE WORK and NEW WORK programs.

Our NEW WORK program is a mini-grant initiative that provides support for the production of new artwork. We aim to support professional artists at all career stages who are not currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs, regardless of their location. The program runs twice a year, offering a $1000 mini-grant to individual artists or artist collectives. The grant is intended to fund a project that can be completed within the next 12 months. We welcome submissions that explore innovative ideas and push the boundaries of traditional art practices, with a particular interest in self-contained, conceptual-based projects.

The ONE WORK publishing program is dedicated to a critical dialogue that focuses on one specific completed work by an artist for our monthly online publication. We are interested in highlighting various conceptual-based works that approach contemporary issues in a new and exciting way and represent the diverse voices and populations of the world. For this program we welcome artist submissions of work that has been completed in the past 2 years.

As a reference point, here’s a list of established contemporary artists and specific works that we are interested in. Also please review our website to see projects in the ONE WORK and NEW WORK programs that we have supported in the past.
