General Submission Policy

ATHICA issues a general call annually for proposals from curators, collectives & artists with challenging, progressive or innovative projects and cohesive bodies of work.  Entry fees go to support the operations of the ATHICA gallery.  We are able to accommodate large-scale sculpture and/or installation. Projects that depend on darkness or enclosed spaces are not advisable, unless the artist can supply labor and materials to create internal spaces in an open and naturally lit space. The ATHICA floorplan can be downloaded here.

Proposals are reviewed by the exhibitions committee for possible consideration in the programming for the coming year.  Artists’ submissions may be retained for a number of years until an appropriate project arises.  We make every effort to provide a response to every submission to specific and general calls.  If you have a question or concern, please contact us via email to info@athica.org, as we are unable to return phone calls in response to inquiries.
