Queens International 2016

Open Call


Queens International 2016 (April 9 – July 31, 2016)

OPEN CALL for Queens artists and cultural producers of all kinds with a special emphasis on those who collaborate with others outside of the U.S.

SUBMIT your materials and ideas to be considered for Queens International 2016 at the Queens Museum. A tradition since 2001, Queens International is the biannual of artists living and/or working in Queens, presenting the artistic vibrancy of the borough through contemporary cultural productions in all media. While featuring the breadth of local artists, the 2016 edition will also check in on the state of the “international” in the borough’s artistic practice through works that are cross-cultural/-national collaborations between Queens artists and their partners outside the US. The call is open to both existing and envisioned works and projects, as well as to works that are fostered by and responding to the rapidly globalizing world we live today.

Submit your materials and see submission guidelines here.

YOUR APPLICATION will be made up of documentation of previous pertinent works/projects, and/or a proposal for a new project with detailed description and production timeline. Modest financial assistance will be available for select proposals. All materials must be submitted via the form linked below.  No materials submitted in person or via post will be reviewed.  No phone inquiries please.

DEADLINE: October 15, 2015.

CURATORS: Hitomi Iwasaki (Director of Exhibitions/Curator, Queens Museum), Larissa Harris (Curator, Queens Museum), and guest curator Lindsey Berfond.
