In light of the ongoing effects of COVID-19, /room/ is committed to continuing programming and supporting local artists.
/room/ is seeking proposals from Bay Area-based artists for a printed group publication.
We are seeking 3-5 artists projects for a forthcoming publication. The publication will be shaped around themes that emerge among the selected proposals. Your work may be based in any media, including drawing, installation, painting, performance, text+image, sculpture, and video. We encourage you to think about the printed format and space expansively, and are excited to work with the selected artists to problem-solve and experiment. Participating artists will work closely with our in-house designer Tugce Evirgen Ozmen. Each participant will receive an artist fee of $200.
Guest Jurors: Ranu Mukherjee and Vivian Sming
Application period 9/14/20-9/20/20. **Update: The deadline is extended. Application is now open until 9/27/2020 11:59pm PDT.** Please go here to access the full application.

- The publication will be printed in color and measure 8.5” x 11”
- The publication will include 3-5 artists total
- Each artist will have up to 4 pages of space
