Open Call for Artists

chashama--giving artists the space to create

Since 1995, chashama has championed the movement to repurpose vacant properties in New York City; recycling them into temporary artist studios and gallery spaces, while simultaneously invigorating the surrounding community landscape with an influx of culture, creativity and business.

chashama invites you to submit a exhibition proposal, for our 2010 Summer season. All of chashama’s visual art exhibit spaces are on the ground floor of a building, or are easily accessible from the street. Most of them were former retail stores, some have large street facing windows. chashama transforms these vacant spaces into temporary exhibit spaces; each one is unique in its layout and overall aesthetic.

Deadline: Artists must submit their application by July 15th, 2010 by 5:00pm.
