July Open Call 2015–Announcing $200 Honorarium

Our Fourth July Open Call!

Your chance to have a solo-show at NAPOLEON
Apply in April for a show in July

Every year, during the month of July, NAPOLEON presents a solo-exhibition selected by our ten members from a pool of applicants collected through an open call. We are interested in exhibiting work that is new to our Philadelphia audience, that takes risks, and makes good use of our small gallery space. If you would like to show with our gallery, we highly recommend you apply for this call.

We are proud to announce that this year, the winner of our open call will receive an honorarium of $200.

We only accept applications during the month of April (ending April 30th at midnight). Applications should include a written proposal (300 words maximum), a CV, an artist statement, and 5 images or 2 videos all saved as a single PDF. If you’re including video work, please include a hyperlink in the .pdf to YouTube, Vimeo, or other video hosting site where we can easily view your work. Applications that are not presented in the manner outlined above will not be reviewed.  Applicants will be notified by mid-May.

For 2015: The show runs from July 3rd to July 31st with an opening reception on Friday, July 10, corresponding with the other galleries in our building. The selected artist will be responsible for supplying all materials required for displaying their work (framing, media equipment, pedestals, hanging wire, etc.). The artist will also be responsible for installation during June 29th – July 3rd and will deinstall the exhibition during August 1st and 2nd. Gallery dimensions and floor plan can be found https://napoleonnapoleon.com/about/floor-plan/

Email materials to napoleon.philadelphia@gmail.com and title the email with your name and “July Show Submission 2015.”  An example email title would be: John Doe July Show Submission 2015. $20 application fee will be billed via PayPal upon receipt of materials. Again, we do not accept applications before April 1st or after April 30th Eastern Standard Time.

NAPOLEON is collectively-run project space located in Philadelphia that strives to provide a platform for new work and new ideas.  We are located in the Rollins Building on the edge of Philadelphia’s Chinatown and Callowhill neighborhoods.  The building also houses other galleries such as Vox Populi, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Marginal Utility, Practice, and Grizzly Grizzly and is a major hub for Philadelphia’s emerging art scene.
