Young Space invites submissions of contemporary visual art for an online exhibition in Summer 2020! This is an opportunity to submit your work for consideration for a curated virtual show. I’m also very excited to introduce the next co-curator for a Young Space exhibition, artist and curator Alex Paik, Founder + Director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, and Gallery Director of Trestle Gallery! In a continued effort to make these opportunities more valuable for artists, viewers and collectors, I’m collaborating with curators, gallerists, and other art world professionals to bring a variety of voices to the table. Artists from all over the world are invited to apply for this virtual exhibition.
The online shows aim to be internationally accessible, 24/7, curated, professional, virtual presentations of exciting contemporary work from around the world. The show is presented on yngspc.com and is promoted via social media. Each artist and at least one artwork is highlighted individually on the @yngspc Instagram (104K+ followers, including gallerists, curators, and collectors). On the opening day of the exhibition, posts featuring work from all artists are shared simultaneously on the Instagram account, with additional content shared throughout the run of the show. All entries are considered for additional Young Space opportunities, such as website features or curated projects.
It’s helpful to check out yngspc.com/artists or scroll through the Instagram gallery to get a feel for the varieties and styles of work there, to get an idea if you think your work aligns with the eclectic Young Space aesthetic. Young Space aims to highlight a diverse range of practices, so all media types are welcome! Please note that there is a $20 submission fee, which supports the Young Space grant for early career artists, and Young Space as an independent curatorial platform. This is a “pay what you can” opportunity with a suggested fee of $20 to support Young Space and the Young Space Grant, but with the opportunity to apply for as low as $5.
