Exhibition Proposals


Open deadline. No fee.

CPAC wants to see new work that reveals a strong personal philosophy and progressive approach to contemporary photography. Individual artists or group projects are encouraged to apply for exhibitions. We also encourage curators to send us proposals for thematic exhibitions that explore contemporary ideas and photographic practice.

Curatorial projects must include a representative sample of Colorado-based artists and a budget. There are no residency limitations for individual artists.

Works will be considered for exhibition and/or for inclusion as an Artist Spotlight on the CPAC blog. Projects may also be referred to other regional organizations.

WHEN: Open deadline. Allow up to eight weeks for an email response.

WHO: We encourage proposals from artists and curators regardless of membership or residency status.
