Young Space invites submissions of contemporary visual art for the second curated group exhibition at Standard Projects, an artist-led space in Northeast Wisconsin.
The exhibition will run Friday, September 14 – Sunday, October 14, 2018.
Submission fee is $25. See below for important dates.
THE SPACE: Check out images from our collaborative 2017 show, Settling the Ghost. This year, the exhibition will take place exclusively in the Big Room, the gorgeous, naturally-lit white cube on the top level of the building. The lower level is getting some exciting new developments! Young Space is partnering with Standard Projects to develop an annual residency program, kicking off in 2019 and running throughout most of the year. Information on the residency and an application form will be available very soon!
