Prospect Art
Curatorial Open Call

Prospect Art is excited to announce our first curatorial open call. We are seeking an emerging curator to help support our BROADCAST arm of our programing in addition to general curatorial support . We are interested in expanding our programming to highlight media based artists throughout the year with the support of a curator to organize and run that aspect of our programming. We are interested in building bridges and making connections between artists and curators so that both can expand their practice. The selected curator will be awarded a $1200 honorarium for their curatorial support.

PROSPECT ART is a forward-thinking, Los Angeles-based artist-run not-for-profit 501c3 organization that fosters artists’ careers by providing exposure through open dialogues, critical writing, project grants, and exhibitions.

The organization was conceived during the 2020 pandemic. Prospect Art is looking towards a world of representation and equality by creating new opportunities for local, national, and international artists. The organization is structured as an agile, responsive entity to serve artists, the local Los Angeles community, and beyond, by supporting existing and new works to be presented to the public. We’re interested in breaking down silos and sharing information and knowledge to further the careers of artists and forge new alliances with the community.
