Exhibitions & Events
The Contemporary offers several Open Call opportunities to ensure artists from San Antonio, Texas, and around the world have the chance to present their work to the curatorial staff and a jury of arts professionals. Now, through a consistent process, artists can submit their portfolios, curricula vitae, and artist statements through an online platform. As a result of this process which began in 2014, the Contemporary has presented over nine acclaimed exhibitions featuring artists selected from the top 10% of applicants. Over 800 artists have applied for exhibition opportunities. A few select previous open calls remain visible to give artists an idea of application guidelines.
