Filter Photo's Open Call for Exhibition Proposals

Filter Photo hosts an annual call for proposals for the exhibition calendar at Filter Space. We welcome photography proposals of all types, whether traditional or experimental or coming from an emerging curator or a veteran artist. Filter Photo hopes to attract a broad range of proposals that reflect the creative diversity of the contemporary photography community. Proposals will be reviewed by Filter Photo Staff, alongside an outside Exhibition Advisory Committee.

As Filter Photo is dedicated to serving and supporting the contemporary photography community, all exhibition proposals should relate to photography, photographic materials, or lens-based artwork. This definition is purposefully open-ended; moving-image work, installations, and performances related to photography may all be included in proposals. Artists, curators, and collectives are all welcome to submit proposals. For example, a single artist could submit a proposal for a solo show, or a collective could submit a proposal for a large group show.

​ACCEPTED PROPOSALS WILL RECEIVE:

  • A 4 to 6-week exhibition at Filter Space in 2023 – 2024
  • At least 1 exhibition reception
  • The opportunity to host an event in conjunction with the exhibition (e.g. a workshop or artist’s talk)
  • Exhibition marketing including printed postcards, an email blast to Filter Photo’s mailing list, and other social media promotion.
  • Stipend (amount varies annually but not less that $350 for a solo artist)
  • Please note that Filter Photo does not pay for production costs or shipping expenses to and from the gallery.

2022 EXHIBITION ADVISORY COMMITTEE:

  • Doug Fogelson—Artist & Filter Photo Board President
  • Shana Lopes—Assistant Curator of Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
  • Allison Peters Quinn—Director of Exhibition & Residency Programs, Hyde Park Art Center
  • Teresa Silva—Executive and Artistic Director, Chicago Artists Coalition
