Each year, all proposals received by February 1 will be reviewed by a jury panel of visual arts professionals in order to make selections for exhibitions to be presented the following year. BlackRock is a nonprofit arts center which presents changing exhibitions of contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artist working in all media, to include site-specific installations, video and other time-based media, performance, new technologies and experimental forms. BlackRock provides curatorial and exhibition support, publicity via print and social media, as well as hosting community engagement events. While BlackRock previously required that all two-dimensional artwork be hung from the gallery cable hanging system, we now most often use alternative installation methods to include using hooks, nails, screws or other fasteners. Artists are responsible for transport of artwork to and from the gallery, materials for and assistance with installation, and attending scheduled events related to the exhibition. The annual review and selection by the jury panel will include Exhibition Proposals submitted throughout the year to our online submission system, powered by Submittable, which have been completed no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on February 1.
