Antenna is now accepting submissions for our Inter(national) Solo Exhibition Open Call 2022. Individual visual artists or collaborators working in any visual art mediums are eligible to apply. Black, Indigenous, people of color, women, immigrants, and LGBTQ-GNC+ artists, including persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to submit an application.

Antenna will provide installation and curatorial support along with an opportunity to publish an exhibition catalog, artist book, or similar ephemeral to be determined in collaboration with Antenna's publishing center,  Paper Machine.


The selected artist or collaborators will also have an opportunity to participate in some form of programming related to their show or practice, which may include an artist talk, workshop, feature in Antenna::Signals magazine, or other forms of social engagement and conversations between the artist(s) and the broader community.

About: Antenna is a multidisciplinary arts organization committed to being a vital participant in the life of New Orleans, producing an expansive array of artist—and writer-driven programs. From exhibitions, residencies, and publications to grant opportunities, gatherings, and public programming, Antenna serves as an engagement hub of diverse communities and publics, cultivating opportunities, learning exchanges on pertinent themes that have emerged over the years, and helping creative visions become realities.

As an artist-centered institution, neighbor, experiment, and vision, accountable to the Black and Indigenous communities that make our work possible, Antenna is committed to moving art beyond the confines of galleries and museums by attending to the histories, communities, and ecologies of the region and their (trans)national implications in our programming to support a more just and equitable city.
