Vox Populi: Project Space

Deadline: January 30, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Project Space

Vox Populi
Philadelphia, PA

The Vox Populi Project Space (VPPS) serves as a versatile incubation space within the gallery, open to artists, curators, gallerists, designers, and others seeking to pilot a project. The Project Space aims to mitigate risks involved in these upstarts by providing administrative support and the physical space needed to realize discrete projects which have as a primary focus an interest in fostering contemporary visual art, dialogue and debate in Philadelphia.

Duration: Projects are two years in length with a potential for extension and/or re-application.

Eligibility and Requirements: Applications are open to anyone for whom access to space and supports is crucial to realizing a discrete project. Travel and material costs are the responsibility of participants and Vox Populi does not provide or arrange living space. Each person/group taking part in the program is expected to contribute to the Philadelphia community and give a public presentation at Vox Populi at the completion of the residency.

Residents will be selected based on the quality of the work/idea being proposed, the availability of the necessary tools and skills to support the work, and in consideration of the overarching goals and themes as identified by the membership of Vox Populi.


Submissions should include:

Description of project concept, including timeline and activities
Statement of objectives
Supporting materials such as writings, images, publications, etc.
Current resume
Statement describing project needs and why being a resident at Vox is necessary for to undertake your project.
Please provide the name, email address, telephone # and address of three professional references who can comment on your recent work and artistic development.
