SOHO20 offers a variety of exhibition opportunities for both artists and curators.  Opportunities are open to all, but are primarily given to women, transgender and gender non-conforming artists. Through our open calls, we hope to inspire public awareness of the quality and importance of art by women, transgender and gender non-conforming artists.

The open call period for the projects listed below is now closed. The results will be announced within 6 – 8 weeks of the April 5 deadline. Please do not email to ask for results within that time period, but if you have any other questions about the application process, email 

For reference, we have left the information and links below.


+/- Project Space
Call For Proposals: 2017/2018 Exhibition Season

Extended Deadline: Wed. April 5, 2017 at midnight Eastern Time

SOHO20 seeks project based submissions for the 2017/2018 Exhibition Season, running September 2017 – May 2018. SOHO20’s +/- Project Space, a small (appx 9 x 9’), dedicated space nestled within SOHO20 Gallery, features one work, project or performance by an artist or group at a time. Focusing on works that are either time-based, ephemeral, performative, or site-specific, artists are chosen to participate in the project space based on their artistic process rather than product. Highlighting the works and practices of emerging artists, the +/- Project Space exhibitions will run concurrently with the regular exhibition season, opening about once per month.

SOHO20’s Residency Lab invites artists (or collaborative groups) to take over our gallery space for six weeks in the summer. During this time, the gallery will remain open for abbreviated hours and public events, fostering dialogue and providing a platform for residents to engage with the visiting public. This program is designed to support alternative practices and facilitate the creation of new work, while offering opportunities for artists to experiment, collaborate, and interact with visitors.
