Locust Projects Project Room Open Call


Locust Projects invites local, national, and international artists to apply for the opportunity to access the space and resources to create ambitious, large-scale new work in our 625 sq ft PROJECT ROOM in our new space at 297 NE 67th Street.
Proposals are reviewed by a rotating jury comprised of local, national and international artists that have previously exhibited at Locust Projects and one local curator. Locust Projects provides selected artists with curatorial guidance, production budget, artist W.A.G.E. fee, documentation, and an opportunity to stay in the Locust Projects residency.


For 25 years Locust Projects has been committed to supporting the creation and presentation of ambitious new work.

Seeking proposals accepted for new, installation-based work never before presented, created specifically for our Project Room. We present visual artists working in any medium and any stage in their career as long as the work they propose for Locust Projects demonstrably pushes their practice in new directions as part of our mission to invite risk-taking and experimentation. Existing work is not accepted for Open Calls. Collectives and artist collaborations are encouraged to apply as long as the work is presented as a singular vision, budgets remain the same. Artists addressing social justice issues including race, identity, gender parity, basic needs, climate change, environmental advocacy, and more, through their projects are encouraged. Final projects are realized with support from a collaborative environment and supportive Locust Projects staff.
