Big Screen Plaza is now accepting submissions for our Biannual Open Call, a curated series of digital and artistic programming that will be displayed starting in Spring 2023. We’re eager to showcase work from many creative disciplines. Please note this call may not be best-suited for every type of artist or artistic discipline. However, if it matches your current artistic goals, or your work, it could be a perfect opportunity — check the guidelines below before submitting!

About Big Screen Plaza:
Big Screen Plaza is a 10,000 sq. ft. public plaza in New York City located at the Kimpton Hotel Eventi which features a 30 ft. HD digital screen. Located between the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, and the art galleries of Chelsea, the plaza’s central location provides an ideal venue for generating exposure for artists to engage the New York community. Throughout the year, the screen displays a rotating collection of digital exhibitions, including photography, animation, visual art, and more.

Throughout the year, Big Screen Plaza displays a rotating collection of digital exhibitions, including photography, animation, visual art, and more, on a 30 ft. HD digital screen. We are now accepting submissions for our Biannual Open Call, a curated series of digital and artistic programming to be displayed starting in Spring 2023.

GUIDELINES:
• The #ArtOnScreen series is not exhibited with any audio, so all work must be viewed and enjoyed without any audio. Files may still contain audio, but all work will be silently displayed to the public, similar to the digital billboards in Times Square.
• All artists are curated into 15-minute exhibitions, so we are looking for artists who have enough work that is thematically cohesive which can be looped or displayed for this duration.
• Content must be suitable to be displayed publicly and viewed by an audience of all ages.
• All artists retain full copyright of their work, and #ArtOnScreen is non-exclusive, so work may be exhibited elsewhere
• Submissions are accepted on a periodic, rolling basis. Due to the quantity of submissions, only artists whose work is chosen will be contacted. No calls, please.

BEST WORK TO SUBMIT:
• Photography
• Studio & Visual Art
• Timelapse or Aerial / Drone Footage
• Motion Graphics & Animation without dialogue
• International or local NYC content – we screen it all
• Cutting edge, contemporary work that can engage and excite the New York public

Eligibility: Open internationally to anyone aged 18+. No level of expertise is required; we are eager to showcase work from many creative disciplines.

What you get: Artistic exposure on a 30ft HD digital screen at the heart of New York City.

Deadline 15 March 2023

Big Screen Plaza, New York City.
