Submit a Proposal
RedLine exhibitions are decided by a staff-lead but community-based committee and proposals for exhibitions are always welcome. RedLine has two main exhibition spaces: the Exhibition Hall (approximately 6,000 sq. ft.) and the Project Space (approximately 1,500 sq. ft.). Our 2019 exhibition schedule is full so we are currently accepting proposals for the 2020 exhibition program year.
Relationship and/or engagement with the annual theme
Alignment with RedLine's mission
We are accepting proposals on a rolling basis, proposals that engage the theme will have priority over those that do not. Please include all information and images in one pdf document, and send as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide the following information for each proposal:
Participating Artist List
Current resume or CV
10-15 (no max) of images from participating artists work
Proposals are reviewed from January-August. If a proposal is accepted you will be contacted for a follow up meeting in September of each year (if not sooner). RedLine typically books exhibitions one year in advance but that timeline is subject to change based on theme (up to three year window). Due to the volume of proposals, RedLine is not able to send declination communications but if you would like feedback on a proposal that was not accepted, please email email@example.com with the subject line "exhibition proposal feedback."
2019 Exhibition Theme
In 2019 RedLine will introduce D | Vision, a series of exhibitions that will explore the relationship between social, cultural or political division and artistic vision. It has been said that “culture makes vision out of division.” Throughout the year, RedLine's shows, events, and programs will seek to investigate the ways in which division opens space for new creation and perspectives.
Potential questions to consider
What is the relationship between division and vision and what is the role of art in those concepts?
What are the factors contributing to the link between vision and division?
How differences and divided views can foster the creative efforts?
How can art create a safe space for sharing the opposing views and ideas?
How can opposing ideas inform each other and lead to the development of a unified one?
Can we have a dialogue about the differences and opposing perspectives that is fruitful?
