Filter Photo hosts an annual call for proposals for the exhibition calendar at Filter Space. We welcome photography proposals of all types, whether traditional or experimental or coming from an emerging curator or a veteran artist. Filter Photo hopes to attract a broad range of proposals that reflect the creative diversity of the contemporary photography community.

This call for proposals has closed.

  • A 4 to 6-week exhibition at Filter Space in 2021 – 2022

  • At least 1 exhibition reception

  • The opportunity to host an event in conjunction with the exhibition (e.g. a workshop or artist’s talk)

  • Exhibition marketing including printed postcards, an email blast to Filter Photo’s mailing list, and other social media promotion.

  • Stipend (amount varies annually but not less that $350 for a solo artist)

    Please note that Filter Photo does not pay for shipping expenses to or from the gallery or production costs.
