Oxygen is thrilled to announce our call for submissions for our exhibition and residency programs. We are excited to welcome proposals from artists of any discipline that engage our mandate in experimental and challenging ways.

As of 2022, we no longer seek submissions for specific projects or exhibitions. Instead, we are interested in receiving applications that present your practice, interests, and research questions. This could include a summary of current concerns, methodologies, mediums, and research interests that you are working with or are interested in exploring further. While we do not expect that you apply with a resolved project in mind, you are welcome to propose solo, group, curated, or major exhibition projects and screenings, workshops, performances, and collaborations.

The shift in our submission model seeks to build some flexibility in how artists and Oxygen may approach programming together, and allow for more reflexive engagements with the space. This work is inspired by the curatorial and programming approach that Oxygen is already cultivating as well as models from different ARCs around the country.


Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals expressing interest in an exhibition, a residency, or both. Oxygen’s Submission Guidelines are structured to offer an introduction to you and your practice; you are not expected to have a resolved project at the time of application. We are interested in hearing about your approaches, ideas, and methodologies with which you might approach collaboration with us.

We encourage you to take a moment to consider Oxygen’s history, our past exhibitions and our current accessibility initiatives as you prepare your submission. Click here for more information.

We are now accepting applications via Google Form. We suggest familiarizing yourself with the form in advance of submitting your application.

Deadline: December 3, 2022
