12x12x122 Summer Show

BECA gallery - Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art
New Orleans, LA
June 6, 2009 - July 18, 2009

12x12x122 Summer Show: The first 122 artists to enter will have their works exhibited (according to guidelines-see below. Actual work will not be accepted for delivery until the end of May, meaning the work does not need to be completed until then). Once we receive the first 122 entrants, this Call will end.

Exhibition open to all national and international artists (at least 18 years of age) working in all media (including video and multimedia) but works must be on canvas.

What: BECA gallery's 2009 Summer Show titled 12x12x122 is an experimental, gallery packed show of 488 unframed works on canvas sized 12x12 inches (30.5 cm x30.5 cm) at a stretcher depth of no more than 1.5 inches. Works need not be flat but all of it must be secure on the canvas and not extend beyond the 12x12 inches (30.5 cm x30.5 cm) size.

Where: BECA gallery, 527 St. Joseph Street, New Orleans, LA 70130 (Gallery Directors will choose up to 10 exhibiting artists to feature at

Why: The purpose of this non-juried experimental, group exhibition '12x12x122' is to discover and highlight new approaches by emerging contemporary artists, as well as those established artists who are stretching their work into unfamiliar territory, working within the parameters of a format of 12x12 inches on canvas. We are encouraging artists to experiment. The only criteria is that the work must be unframed on (or somehow be incorporated into/onto) stretched canvas size 12x12 inches (30.5 cm x30.5 cm) (no smaller, no larger) with a stretcher depth of no more than 1.5 inches.

Submission Fee: $50 Payments will be accepted online only for this submission.
