The Wassaic Project is currently holding our annual Open Call for our 2021 Summer Exhibition and publication for artists of all mediums — including 2D, sculpture, video, new media, site-specific installation, performance, text, poems, essays, publication-specific work. If selected, your work will be showcased alongside a diverse range of pieces and performances in and around historic Maxon Mills, as well as in a printed publication. Ideally, the Wassaic Project's 2021 Summer Exhibition will be free and open to the public every weekend from May 22 through September 18, 2021. If it is not safe to host a physical exhibition due to COVID-19, the work in the show will still appear online and in print.
Artists interested in creating a site-specific installation for the 2021 Summer Exhibition are also eligible for an Exhibitions Fellowship to help realize their work. Up to five fellows will be offered a no-fee residency between either April 12–26, 2021 or May 3–31, 2021, and will be considered full participants in our residency program. Artists interested in making site-specific work for the exhibition should still apply regardless of whether or not they are interested in or able to be in residence in April or May.
The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers 10 artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Project seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art-making practices, while participating in a community-based arts organization.
