Impossible Sites // Artist Relief Award

Impossible Sites invites American artists to submit sketches for impossible site-specific artworks for a cash award and inclusion in an online zine. This open call is intended to support artists living and working in the United States who have been financially impacted by COVID-19.

We are seeking sketches or renderings that depict an impossible artwork situated within a real, existing location (i.e. the Moon, the Grand Canyon, a grocery store). The artwork can be deemed impossible for any number of reasons identified by the artist. For example, the artwork could be impossible due to gravity or other natural phenomenon, cost, scale, materials, timeframe, etc. The site or location the artwork is depicted within must somehow physically exist in reality at the current moment. Any medium is acceptable including drawing, video, performance, animation, painting, collage, digital, photography, etc. The awarded sketch submissions will be received and disseminated digitally, as well as included in an online zine.

Black Cube will award 5 artists $650 each for selected sketch submissions. Submissions are reviewed and selected by Black Cube’s Chief Curator.

See the link for submission guidelines.
