New York’s leading public art nonprofit Creative Time invites artists to submit proposals for a public artwork beginning December 10, 2018. The call is open to New York City-based, practicing artists at a pivotal juncture in their career, who have not yet received a public commission or substantial support from a major cultural institution. Creative Time is most interested in ideas that take unconventional exhibition formats, speak to a pressing social issue, and engender public dialogue. The project should be timely, and hold the potential to spark critical public exchange.
Proposals will be accepted between December 10 and January 18, and the selected project will be presented in the spring/summer of 2019 in New York. Proposals can range from the unassuming to a dramatic gesture — no specific size or scale.
This is an opportunity for artists to experiment with new ideas in the public realm, and utilize Creative Time as a valuable resource. Creative Time’s 40+ year legacy includes years of championing both emerging and established artists, and those looking to radically shift their process within or beyond a particular medium.
