What is PROJECT?

PROJECT - engaging artists in the built environment is a new national funding scheme jointly supported by the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) and Arts & Business (A&B) funding via banks and financial institutions. It will involve the arts, culture, design, education, environment, healthcare, housing, and regeneration sectors in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Public Art South West will manage and deliver the scheme which was launched on 8 June 2004 and will run until March 2006. PROJECT aims to create a shared vision for public space, planning and high quality urban design; and engage artists, public agencies and the private sector in projects that will have a positive impact on the places in which we live.

Engaging with artists and arts organisations to develop quality environments, increased environmental sustainability, more effective community interaction and expanded opportunities for economic development is now recognised as key to business as well as public sector success.

This funding partnership between CABE and A&B has secured a new award scheme for the arts. We want people undertaking any built environment project to ask: what is the added value of involving an artist and to look at the contributions of artists to the built environment as a whole.

This scheme aims to promote the role that artists can play in sharing creative ideas within multidisciplinary practice. Through changing the way we think and work with architecture, building and design professionals, we aim to create imaginative environments that are fit for purpose, and that reflect local identity and meet communities' needs.

The Irving Sandler Artists File

The Irving Sandler Artists File is a digitized image database and slide registry that is open to the public free-of-charge, and it is one of the largest and most comprehensive artist registries in the country. The Artists File is not curated and there is no fee to join or view the Artists File. Up to this point the Artists File has only been available for visitors to Artists Space, but our in-house database is now accessible through the internet. Each artist has two images of their work included in this database and it is searchable by such categories as "medium", "materials", "style", and artists' names. Artists' email information and/or web site links are available for visitors to contact the artists personally. If you find an artist who does not have any email or website information, or their email address doesn't work, please email the Artists File for their information at artfile@artistsspace.org. Artists featured in this database each have an in-house file at Artists Space with more images and biographical information. For more in-depth research or to view more work by the artists in the database, please make an appointment to visit the Artists File. The file is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 6pm; for an appointment contact Artists File Coordinator Letha Wilson at 212.226.3970 ext. 35. Although there is no fee to use the Artists File, we ask institutions and corporations undertaking research to consider a donation to Artists Space. Artists File Online Artists: If you are an artist who has work in the Artists File Online and there is an error on your page, or your information has changed, please email Letha at artfile@artistsspace.org. Please email the specific information about the problem and it will be fixed as soon as possible.

Artists submissions

The May Gallery

Exhibitions in the May Gallery normally last from 4-6 weeks (depending on the academic calendar). Proposals are accepted year-round, and normally are considered for the academic year following their submission. The May Gallery is dedicated to showing a wide range of photographic work, so successful proposals relate to some photographic process.

Exhibition proposals may be made by an individual or a group, but should make appropriate use of the gallery space. The gallery has almost 160 running feet of wall space, although it is divided into ten distinct sections. A schematic drawing of the space can be helpful for planning. Exhibitions that will not substantially fill the gallery are not considered.

Proposals must include: 
Name(s) of photographer(s). 
All contact information. 
R�sum�(s), including information about any prior exhibitions of the work proposed. 
A brief statement about the work, both in terms of content and process (for the consideration of the Gallery Committee; if the proposal is accepted, this statement will not necessarily be for public use). 
12-20 35mm slides of the work proposed for exhibition, in a plastic page, clearly marked with name, title (if any) and an orientation mark for proper viewing. Do not send original transparencies. While slides will be returned, and care will be taken with them, the Gallery cannot accept responsibility for handling originals. 
Image sizes, and outer dimensions of the work proposed. (Cover glass is normally provided by the Gallery, but framed work can be accepted by prior arrangement.) Proposals should be sent to:

May Gallery Review Committee
School of Communications
Webster University
470 East Lockwood Ave.
St. Louis MO 63119-3194


Receipt of proposals will be acknowledged, and materials will be returned after consideration. Proposals are reviewed in January and August for the coming academic year, unless a sufficient number of pending proposals warrants convening a review committee at other times. 

Artists submissions

The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art

The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art is accepting submissions of sculpture by San Francisco Bay Area artists, which will be installed in the ICA's Rear Window. The ICA is specifically seeking sculpture that activates the space, such as kinetic sculpture or dramatically lit forms. The Rear Window is part of Night Moves, a series of window illuminations visible only from dusk to dawn. The window dimensions are approximately 11 feet long by 12 feet high by 5 feet deep. The Rear Window is an ongoing exhibition series; there is no submissions deadline.

Please submit a current r�sum�, artist statement, and visual documentation of your work (5 to 20 images is standard). You may also submit photographs, VHS videotape, CD-ROMs, DVDs or Web addresses, but slides are preferred. Be sure to label your visual materials with your name and telephone number as well as the artwork's title, date, media and dimensions. Do not submit original artwork. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of your submission materials. 

Send your materials to: 
Rear Window Night Moves
451 South First Street
San Jose, CA 95113

If you have questions, please contact info@sjica.org. 

The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art is a non-profit art gallery with the mission of exhibiting forward-looking, thought-provoking, and exciting contemporary art by emerging and established Bay Area artists. 

How is art chosen for exhibition at the ICA?
Art exhibitions at the ICA are chosen and organized by a Curatorial Committee, made up of ICA Board members and the Executive Director. This group selects art, presents exhibition ideas, and determines the exhibition schedule. The Curatorial Committee meets and reviews submissions every three to six months.

How do I get my artwork into a show at the ICA?
There are two ways to get your artwork shown at the ICA:

1. If you are interested in a solo or group exhibition, please submit a resume, statement and slides to: Curatorial Committee, SJICA, 451 South First Street, San Jose, CA 95113. You may also submit VHS videotape, photographs, CD ROMS, DVDs, or Web addresses, but slides are preferred. Do not submit original artwork. Be sure to label the submission with your name and phone number, along with the artwork's title, medium, and date. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like your submission materials returned. You will receive a response in approximately six months.

2. The ICA holds two benefit events each year, the Fall Auction and Monotype Marathon. Artists who donate work to the Fall Auction find this is a great way to get their work seen and build a following of collectors. Artists can also receive 20% of the auction sale price. The Monotype Marathon is a weekend of intensive monoprint workshops, in which artists are sponsored to make prints-the best print by each artist appears in a show at the ICA. 

How do I get my work in the Store@ICA?
Artists that have work in our store receive 60% of the retail price. If you are interested in selling your artwork in our store, please leave a message for Jillian Waldo at 408.283.8155.
