Public Art Calls for artists
The City of El Paso Allied Artist Program is to provide local artists the opportunity to assist experienced artists commissioned for major projects of $125,000 or more by the Public Art Program, in order to gain the technical and administrative expertise needed to compete within the field of public art. Allied Artists are matched up with commissioned artists based on their level of experience, artistic medium and general interests. Pre-qualified artists who are chosen for a specific project will be compensated for their service as an Allied Artist. Artists must re-apply every two years. Interested artists should download the complete call at the link below. Artists should submit a single PDF with the documents specified in the call to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) and the Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juárez (MACJ) announce an open call for entries to the 6th Border Biennial. Artists living and working within a 200-mile radius of the US/Mexico border may apply through March 31, 2020.
Two-dozen artists or collectives will be selected to present artwork in the 6th Border Biennial. Border artists will be chosen from the open call and several established artists will be invited who may live beyond the border, but who engage with it in their work.
Artworks selected will be concerned with the historical, contemporary, and future effects of the boundary and policies on: people, animals, environment, landscape, and goods; economies, infrastructure, migration, and theory; prejudice, violence, identity, and nationality.
For more information and to apply, visit 6th Border Biennial.
