Call for Proposals: Artist Multiples/Limited Editions/Projects – deadline 1 November 2007

Call for Proposals: Artist Multiples/Limited Editions/Projects that result in multiple parts

The Present Group, a quarterly art subscription service, seeks proposals from artists for projects that are reproducible in intent.
Deadline: November 1st, 2007

Who we are:
The Present Group is a quarterly art subscription service. Every year TPG subscribers receive four limited edition works from four different contemporary artists. Each work is accompanied by information to help them gain insight into the piece, its creator, and recurring themes in the contemporary art world.

What we are looking for:
Proposals for projects that are reproducible in intent. Each piece can be a limited edition, an artist multiple, or either a part of or document of a larger work. Our current edition numbers are under 100. We choose based on the piece’s Visual, Conceptual, and/or Experiential interest. The project will be made exclusively through The Present Group. We understand that similar themes and images may be used throughout your other work, however you agree not to create the exact project in the same form again.

Appreciation for Selected Artists:

-$500 (This is an honorarium outside of the costs of creating the work-which we cover)
-4 of the produced work for your own collection or to sell on your own.
-All the contextual information we create for your piece, including artist info, critiques, and video will remain free on-line as long as TPG exists

Your proposal should include:
-Contact Information: Name, Address, Phone Number, E-mail, Website (if it applies)
-Project Proposal:
1. What you want to do.
2. How this work will relate to/expand on current themes in your work
3. Anything (sketches, photos. . .) to help you explain your idea.
– Links to Artist Resume, Statement, Work Samples

We have a rolling submissions policy and review proposals four times a year. The our next review date is November 1st . Everyone who applies will be contacted by e-mail.

Email guidelines:

You may also include your project proposal in the body or .PDF.
We much prefer links to web sites or files. If you must use attachments, limit it to three. We will not open more. We prefer .PDFs or .JPGs. We will not accept attached video.
