What kind of Research?

Artists research differently! Research for this exhibition means exploring information and places as part of your process of developing new work. This may include:

We are working with scholars who are providing historical and analytical texts. If you would like to write a scholarly essay, note this on your Expression of Interest

Full Proposals : Reviewed Monthly / Rolling Admissions

First Review of Full Proposals in July (details TBA)

Research and Creative thought are essential to this project, therefore full proposals are due for review after you have had time to think about and envision your project. You will be asked to submit sketches or a detailed description of your proposed work

All artists who have been provisionally accepted into the group via "Expressions of Interest" will have access to a private group networking site, where artists may upload working proposals for feedback and ask questions

Full Proposals will be reviewed by the Artistic Committee to be sure that they conform to the theme of Silent Witnesses: Migration Stories through Synagogues Transformed, Rebuilt, or Left Behind, and include evidence of artistic research and thoughtful engagement with the theme

The proposal phase of this exhibition is an important step in developing a coherent group project, in which artists create new work that stirs their imaginations and is in their own visual vocabularies, while at the same time fitting within the boundaries of this themed, artist organized, group project

Proposals which do not adhere to the Guidelines cannot be included in the exhibition and project

Review of (near) Completed Work : December 1

Final Work will be reviewed by the Artistic Committee in time to produce a quality catalogue and press materials.

Works will be reviewed to assure that they conform to the original proposal, and to the project Guidelines

Catalogue and press photographs and texts are due at this time
