Title Call for Entries: The Apropos Show
Organization Umlauf Sculpture Garden + Museum
Closing Date Friday, April 7, 2023
Location Austin, TX

Interested in exhibiting in a major group show at the UMLAUF?

The Apropos Show is a juried group exhibition of contemporary art that thoughtfully addresses an aspect or aspects of Charles Umlauf’s work. Apropos will be a wide-ranging exhibition displaying a variety of responses to Umlauf’s work that offer viewers a chance to reflect on a multitude of themes. We welcome creative submissions that respond compositionally and/or thematically to Umlauf’s sculpture. For example, some artists might pay homage to Umlauf’s sculpture or subject matter, while others might question or problematize tenets embedded in Umlauf’s oeuvre. All media and sizes will be considered; objects may be for indoor or outdoor display. Submissions will be judged on four criteria: quality, creativity, how effectively the proposed work alludes to Umlauf’s work, and how it would fit within the gallery, garden, and with the other accepted submissions. We welcome all submissions and encourage minority, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and/or people with disabilities to apply for the Apropos exhibition.

All entries are to be submitted digitally through our website – https://www.umlaufsculpture.org/apropos – no later than April 7th, 2023. No physical or mailed-in submissions will be accepted. Artists must include:

1. Artist/s’ contact info (name, phone, address, email, and social media handles/website)
2. C.V. or resume (in addition to any website link)
3. A statement not to exceed 250 words describing what the artist/s plan/s to create, including dimensions and media
4. High-res sketches or renderings of the proposed object/s (up to 2 images) labeled and numbered with artist’s surname (e.g., Smith Proposal 1; Smith Proposal 2)
5. High-res images (up to 5 images) of recent artwork labeled and numbered with artist’s surname. (e.g., Smith Recent 1; Smith Recent 2…)
