Artist and Exhibition Submissions
The San Jose ICA offers open submissions for select exhibition opportunities listed below. Open calls for artists and for professionally organized exhibitions are periodically updated – consult our website for the most current opportunities. Other unsolicited submissions are not accepted at this time.
The ICA encourages creativity by presenting and interpreting thought-provoking contemporary art to a diverse audience. While the ICA supports Bay Area emerging and mid-career artists, we encourage submissions from non-regional artists as well. Please see Submission Requirements.
The ICA is currently considering work for the following opportunities: ICA Live!
ICA LIVE! – Performance, sound, and social engagement The ICA is seeking artist proposals for contemporary art performances and projects with interactive or participatory elements. The performances will be featured during First Fridays and/or during special one-night events at the ICA. Sound-based artists and artists interested in engaging directly with a public are also encouraged to submit a proposal. Special consideration will be given to student artists and recent graduates in addition to emerging to midcareer artists.
