Open Call

/room/ is dedicated to exhibiting the work of local*, emerging and early-career artists selected from open calls by a series of guest jurors. Projects are developed collaboratively from the proposals submitted by each selected artist. All exhibiting artists are paid an artist fee and given the opportunity to engage with the community through public programming, including workshops and artist talks.

We only accept proposals through our /room/ open calls, which we announce here on our website, in our newsletter (subscribe here), and on Instagram. There is never an application fee to participate in our open calls.

For /room/ related inquiries, please contact

*We understand that these are uncertain and economically challenging times and accept submissions from emerging artists with deep ties to the Bay Area who may have recently or temporarily relocated elsewhere.
