Open call for POPPOSITIONS 2017 – Brussels
POPPOSITIONS is currently inviting galleries, project spaces and artist initiatives to participate in its 6th edition via an open call.
POPPOSITIONS was established in 2011 as a counterpoint to mainstream art fairs, and has grown into a leading alternative market for contemporary art. There are no white booths here. Instead, POPPOSITIONS presents emerging talent in a site-specific context, occupying a different space each year. In the past five years, POPPOSITIONS has been dealing with questions of artistic agency, self-organisation, cynicism and criticality in order to shape its profile within the cultural and economic landscape. For the 2017 edition, Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (The Office for Curating, NL) has been appointed as artistic director.
Applications are limited to solo shows, which will be assembled into one single exhibition. All forms of media and artistic disciplines are accepted.
Proposals will be assessed by a selection panel that includes Kasper Bosmans (artist, BE), Elise Lammer (curator/artist, CH), Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (curator, NL) and Jo-ey Tang (curator/artist, US).
Application deadline: 15 January 2017
20 – 23 April, Brussels
