Open Call: Curatorial Proposals

Application deadline: January 20, 2014.
REVERSE invites curators to submit proposals for an exhibition of contemporary art in our 1000 sq ft space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. REVERSE is a multidisciplinary workspace and art gallery with an emphasis on new and experimental forms of expression. We are looking for curators with a vision that coincides with the gallery’s mission of providing an engaging space that fosters innovation and exploration. As REVERSE seeks to be a platform for emerging artists to produce and present their work, as well as a site of sustained dialogue with the public, we are open to curatorial proposals that draw from a wide range of artistic practices. Strong proposals will be clear, concise and engaging while presenting innovative ideas that show a solid understanding of the spirit of REVERSE. We encourage you to visit our gallery website, review our exhibition history and consider the gallery floor plan before submitting a proposal. Submissions will be reviewed twice a year. The deadline for the next application cycle is January 20, 2014. Applicants will be contacted with a decision from the REVERSE committee within six weeks of the deadline.
