The 2021 In Practice Program


Long Island City, NY 11101


Jun 15, 2020


Apr 28, 2020

The In Practice open call program supports emerging artists in creating new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. Since 2003, In Practice has supported more than 200 emerging artists with the essential resources of space, funding, time, curatorial support, and administrative guidance to help turn their ideas into reality.

Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter’s mission, In Practice supports innovative artwork, fosters experimentation, and introduces audiences to underrecognized practices and new ideas. The program offers participants the opportunity to develop and present work in what is often their first institutional exhibition in New York City.

SculptureCenter invite artists to submit proposals each spring for new projects to be presented in January 2021. Artists selected for the In Practice exhibition will receive an honorarium and production support. The level of production support will depend on the scope of accepted works and available funding.

Application Deadline

The 2021 In Practice Call for Artist Proposals closes at 11:59PM on June 15, 2020
