Open Call—Process: what it was when it wasn’t

Process: what it was when it wasn’t


What does a practice of process look like? Does it look like your google search history? The most recent sentence underlined in the book you’re currently reading? Are your screenshots a part of this practice? Navigating process as an act created by the desire to understand and investigate, this exhibition attempts to expand on these questions. Taking a look at the process of creating through experimental reflections and studio visits, artists selected for the exhibition Process: what it was when it wasn’t will expose the conversations between the work they create and the process or research that brings that work to life.  


This call is open to humans that make things, not just visual artists. To submit, please respond to the following questions by emailing by January 10.


  1. What would it be like to force your research to live with the finished artwork in the same space? Can they coexist?


  1. How do you define research? How do you define process?


  1. How is the investigation and process of creating talking to the finished work? What does their conversation look like?


  1. How does your research impact your process?


  1. Please submit five images.
