Call Type: Exhibitions
Deadline Type: ongoing
Eligibility: Chicago
The International Gallery invites artists to submit proposals for solo exhibitions. Proposals are accepted at any time.

Call for Proposals, Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site 2013 Artist Installations

Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 6/13/2012
Call Type: Exhibitions
Eligibility: National

Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is currently accepting proposals for its 2013 season of site-specific artist installations. Maximum funding is $7,500 per project. The deadline for proposals is June 13, 2012.

For guidelines, helpful hints, and FAQs, visit our site:

Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, an abandoned prison museum located in Philadelphia, hosts a changing series of artist installations as part of its annual programming. Artists are chosen for their ability to address Eastern State’s primary themes—including issues of crime and justice, architectural history, and the site’s fascinating past—with a memorable, thought-provoking approach.

Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone. Tours today include the cellblocks, solitary punishment cells, Al Capone’s Cell, and Death Row. A critically-acclaimed series of artist installations is free with admission.

The Window Project (ONGOING)

Call Type: Public Art
Deadline Type: ongoing
Deadline: 1st of each month
Eligibility: International
The Window Project is a curated outdoor, new media installation space facing the southern end of Woodruff Park from the windows of the Digital Arts Entertainment Laboratory (DAEL). The infrastructure consists of six high definition projectors synchronized to create a rear-projection screen that stands over six feet high and spans over 80 feet in width and can be seen from any vantage point in Atlanta’s central park and from the main pedestrian path of students of Georgia State University. The mission of The Window Project is to create a public art space that engages the community and enhances the Georgia State University campus and downtown Atlanta.

We invite the participation of local, national and international emerging and established moving image artists to submit current work reconfigured for six projectors around a curved surface or new work specifically created to take advantage of the multi-projector format. This space and format allows artists to break from the constraints of a single screen on a flat surface with a prescribed viewing point. We do not seek a specific theme for the content, but expect that it should be high visual, technical and conceptual quality and well suited for this unique public space, which is large, but subtle due to the curved glass and location on a downtown building window.

This project is sponsored by the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab. DAEL is a multimillion-dollar entertainment research and production facility located in the heart of downtown Atlanta on the campus of Georgia State University. Through industry and university partnerships, DAEL facilitates the creation and testing of digital media content. DAEL incubates emerging media arts businesses, trains graduate students and engages in user-centered media research.

How to Apply: Please email a brief artist statement, a link to artist website and up to 5 images or videos to: with “The Window Project” and your name in the subject line. If an emailed/internet submission is not possible, a CD or DVD can be sent in the mail.

2012 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project

Artists from all countries are invited to send a proposal for a site-specific outdoor sculpture installation to be created during a 25-day artist in residency in Cheng Long, a small rural village near the southwestern coast of Taiwan in Kouhu Township, Yunlin County. This art project is an expansion of the 2010 and 2011 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Projects, going into the Village as well as the Wetlands. This year the selected artists will work with elementary school children and community residents to create large-scale sculpture installations focused on the theme of “What’s for Dinner?” The artworks will reflect on environmental issues surrounding food production and emphasize organic aquaculture. In this community the main occupation of the villagers is traditional fish farming and the production of clams, shrimp and milk fish. Fish Farmers in Cheng Long always grow these 3 together: clams are the main product; the shrimp and milk fish are like workers who help farmers to deal with algae and little tiny things in the water. The whole fish farm is like a small eco-system. Kou-Hu Township is the most important place for growing clams, shrimp, milk fish, mullet roe and eel in Taiwan. Many people in the Cheng Long area also work in oyster farming. The Forestry Bureau and the Kuan-Shu Educational Foundation are going to encourage more “Environmental Friendly” fish farming here, in order to prevent the land-subsidence and find a way that fish farmers and birds can coexist well.

The 2012 art project will help to promote awareness of how our food is produced and the importance of sustainable and organic practices in aquaculture. Artworks will be site specific and located on, in and around existing village structures, old houses, abandoned buildings, vacant lots, underneath the roadway, beside the highway and in Cheng Long Wetlands, a wetlands nature preserve created by rising waters and land subsidence. The artworks will be made with recycled and natural materials that are part of the daily lives of the village residents. The artworks should be made to last for two years or more. Artists will work alongside other international artists and Taiwanese artists and with children and village residents in Cheng Long, Kouhu Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan.

Deadline for Entries: February 8, 2012.
Artists will be notified by February 22, 2012.
Installation and Residency in Cheng Long, Kouhu Township, Taiwan: April 12 (artists arrive) – May 7, 2012 (artists depart)
Dates of the Exhibition: May 4, 2012 (opening ceremony), May 5 and 6 – Opening weekend activities with the artists. The exhibition will stay on display through 2012.

About the Exhibition Place:

Cheng Long Village is located in Yunlin County, Kouhu Townwhip and is near the southwestern coast of Taiwan. Cheng Long Village has about 500 residents, and the Cheng Long Elementary School has about 77 children in grades 1-6 (ages 7-12). The sculpture installations will be sited in the Cheng Long Wetlands and throughout the community in public spaces such as public areas by the highway, along village streets, at village parks, and near the village temple. Some of the artworks will be sited on private lands with the cooperation of the owners and may include such places as vacant lots, abandoned houses, empty buildings or other existing structures in the village. This area of Taiwan is economically depressed, and some of the land that was formerly used for farming is sinking and now under water and too salty for growing crops. The Taiwan Forestry Bureau has set aside part of the sinking land to create the Cheng Long Wetlands, a wetland nature preserve that is now home to many species of birds, fish and other wildlife. Now fish farming and the production of seafood is the main occupation of the local people. Most young people move away to find jobs in the cities leaving older people and children as the main community residents. There are no super markets, movie theaters or coffee shops, but this residency will offer artists a unique cultural experience and an opportunity to share life with a small village in rural Taiwan. For more information and some photos of the sites for the artworks, please see the blog on the at (Also, you can check this Chinese blog to see many pictures related to the environmental education project conducted by Kuan-Shu Educational Foundation in ChengLong. )

If your questions are not answered by looking at the Blog, contact the curator Jane Ingram Allen at

Selected Artists will receive the following:

Artist’s fee of NT50,000 (about US$1,662.12) for creating the artwork and participating as an artist in the public programs and working with the school children and community residents.
Round trip economy airfare from the artist’s home to Taipei (Taoyuan International Airport) and then train fare to Chiayi, Taiwan, by High Speed Rail where the artists will be picked up and brought by car to Cheng Long Village. Taiwanese artists will receive train fare or other transportation reimbursement for their expenses to come from their home to Cheng Long. Detailed travel instructions will be sent to selected artists, and artists must get the approval of the curator before booking tickets and keep all receipts for reimbursement when they arrive in Cheng Long.
25 days of accommodations in a local house with other international and Taiwanese artists. The houses will have a bedroom for each artist and a shared bathroom and kitchen for preparing meals.
Meals provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. A local cook will prepare dinner for the artists; lunch will usually be at school with the children, and breakfast food will be provided for artists to make their own breakfast.
Local transportation around Cheng Long and to scheduled site-seeing trips with the artists and volunteers. Bicycles will be provided for the artists to use around the village.
Volunteer help from school children and adults in the community to create the artworks.
Help to find local recycled materials and natural materials to make the artworks. Oyster shells are probably the most commonly available material, but reeds, bamboo, tree branches, old fishing nets, plastic bottles, lumber, metal parts and other materials may also be available. Artists should use only natural and recycled materials and processes that will not harm the environment and encourage sustainability. Please look at the website for more information about materials. Artists who want to purchase materials to make their artwork must consult with the curator and get the budget approved in advance.
