Call For Artist Run Spaces

The CAC and Wave Pool are teaming up to co-organize Artist Run Spaces, a convening of independent arts organizations, non-profits, and collectives throughout Ohio in the summer of 2022. Artist-run and independent spaces are often able to pivot and react to current events much faster than larger institutions. In a moment of reflection and reopening amid the pandemic, the interests and needs of artist run spaces and collectives are more important than ever.

Occupying the CAC’s second floor galleries, this hybrid exhibition invites 10 spaces to develop an installation or booth for the occasion that highlights the core of what they do, with a focus on showcasing work by artists or makers who are part of their network. The selected entities will be offered a modest stipend and installation support. The exhibition is an opportunity to demonstrate the experimental work being done throughout the region by giving these spaces a platform to widen their reach and connect with each other.

Artist Run Spaces is organized as part of nearly a year of programming highlighting Midwestern artists to coincide with The Regional, a multi-museum survey exhibition that will be on view at the CAC from December 10, 2021 - March 21, 2022.
