2016 Open Call for Curatorial Proposals

Deadline: June 13
Exhibition Dates: September 3 – October 16, 2016
Entry Fee: $40 for up to 25 images
Juror: Virginia Treanor 

This is an open call for independent curators working in North America to submit proposals for a group exhibition in the fall of 2016. We are looking for curators with a unique vision who are interested in bringing new ideas to the DC area by featuring emerging, contemporary artists. The exhibition may not include work by the curator. The curator associated with the chosen proposal will have an exhibition in Target Gallery from September 3 – October 16, 2016. The selected proposal will also receive a $5,000 stipend for exhibition expenses. Our juror this year is Virginia Treanor. 

Virginia Treanor, a native Washingtonian, Ginny has worked in a number of museums in DC including the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Gallery of Art. She received her MA in Art History in 2002 from American University, and completed her PhD in 2011 from the University of Maryland, where she specialized in seventeenth-century Dutch art.

Ginny has worked at the National Museum of Women in the Arts as Associate Curator since 2012. There, she has worked on exhibitions on a wide array of time periods, subjects, and media. Most recently, she curated “Organic Matters—Women to Watch 2015,” an exhibition of contemporary paintings, photographs, ceramics, videos, and taxidermy.
