The Shed: Open Call

Decoys in Varying Shades of Nothingness and Specter by Asif Mian

Exhibition: June 18 - August 25 at THE SHED (545 W 30th St, New York) Commission for New Video & Sculpture Installation

Open Call is The Shed’s large-scale commissioning program for New York City-based artists, working in all disciplines, who have not yet received extensive support from a large cultural institution. Over 900 artists from across all five boroughs submitted proposals for Open Call. Intensive review panels, comprised of artists, cultural programmers, and academics from a wide variety of backgrounds, selected 52 artists and collectives for the inaugural season. Each artist has received funding, resources, and support to develop and present a new work in one of The Shed’s principal spaces.
