By Degrees exhibition at 3D4D Gallery
July-August Exhibition at 3D4D
Often an artist’s most groundbreaking work comes from being immersed in a culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Chicago, home to some of the most globally revered academic arts institutions, could be considered a sort of proving ground for tomorrow’s most promising contemporary emerging artists.
Chicago Sculpture International (CSI) is calling for artists who are enrolled, or recently (2021 or later) graduated from a degree-seeking program to submit works of sculpture, installation and media work to be featured in the juried group exhibition By Degrees, which will run July 15 - August 19, 2022 at 3D4D Gallery (1912 N. Damen Ave., Chicago). If you are a degree seeking CSI member, you are eligible to apply. If you know a degree-seeking artist who is not yet a CSI member, forward this call to them.
Artists can submit up to 3 works for consideration. Other media work can be shared via URLs to a hosting site. Accepted artwork must be able to fit into a normal single door storefront. Costs for shipping work to and from the gallery are the responsibility of the artist. There is no fee for entry, but accepted artists will be required to gallery sit for at least two 3-hour shifts during the run of the exhibition. This call is not limited to students and graduates of Chicago-area institutions. Accepted artists who are not CSI members will be granted a one year non-transferrable student membership to CSI.
To apply to By Degrees, please complete this form. Deadline for submission is June 19th at midnight Central time. Notification of works accepted will be sent on or before June 30th. Artists are responsible for delivery of work to 3D4D Gallery. In person delivery will be accepted July 10th and all shipped works must be received by July 9th.
