PROJECT

Exhibition: “Instant RE:play”

Request: For art in every medium, style, and size that captures all elements of sports. Space for 3-Dimensional work is limited.

OVERVIEW

FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel regularly presents exhibitions based on a 360-degree view of arts and culture that includes all the traditional mediums of art such as painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, fiber art, printmaking, etc., as well as video art, film, fashion, performance, music and much more!

As part of this next four-month cycle of exhibition programming, FOUND:RE Contemporary is inviting artists to submit works to be included in the studio exhibition “Instant RE:play." This survey of talent from across the state of Arizona is meant to showcase artworks that depict all elements of sports. All types of sports are welcome.

For “Instant RE:play" FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel will use the studio space to showcase the works that are selected for this exhibition. This diverse survey embraces different styles and mediums of sports-related art in both 2D and 3D works. All of the works selected for exhibitions are for sale and will be represented on the gallery website for purchase by hotel patrons and art collectors from across the nation.

Art Tours of “Instant RE:play” will be scheduled throughout the course of the exhibition, with tickets available for purchase through foundrecontemporary.com.

BACKGROUND

FOUND:RE Contemporary is a premier commercial gallery space in the heart of downtown Phoenix. It represents both emerging and established artists through a regular series of exhibitions and special events that happen in conjunction with the art programming at FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel. FC comprises three galleries, an art lounge, a number of exhibition halls, auxiliary spaces, and much more.

Located in the Roosevelt Row Arts District, FC is a part of every First and Third Friday Artwalk, as well as being a destination location for art lovers throughout the greater Phoenix metro area. FC exhibits visual art as well film, fashion, music, and the entire spectrum of cultural production today.

The Installation: This studio installation at FOUND:RE is intended to “Wow” the patrons of the hotel and art collectors alike. The selection of work will be unique to the spaces at FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel where the exhibition halls and galleries are as large as a major museum. A dynamic selection of works and mediums will be included in this exhibition, where the inspiration and skill behind each and every piece are sure to make FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel into the perfect place for a staycation as well as an inspiring destination for people from around the nation.

Legal: Selected artist(s) will permit the photography of artworks, including use in promotional materials. All reasonable efforts will be made to credit the artist in promotions and when communicating with the media. Being accepted in the show is only a commitment to have the works in the show represented for sale and any further terms and conditions about representation will be negotiated by the hotel curator and the artist.

Content: This open call is to identify artists who make sports-related art who want to exhibit at the FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel, or who are looking for representation by FOUND:RE Contemporary. Artists are encouraged to submit works that demonstrate visually satisfying and thought-provoking sports-related work.

FOUND:RE Contemporary welcomes submissions in a wide range of mediums. 3-Dimensional works are welcome, however, space is limited. Artists whose work regularly utilizes sports themes are strongly encouraged to apply.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Interested artists are encouraged to learn more about FOUND:RE Phoenix and FOUND:RE Contemporary via the following websites: foundrehotels.com and foundrecontemporary.com.

Eligibility: This opportunity is only open to artists, designers, creative individuals, and creative teams living and working in the state of Arizona.

Artists should be Articipants with our local partner, Artlink Phoenix. Find the registration form on artlinkphx.org.

There will be approximately 10 artists selected, depending on the number of works submitted and how many can be shown.

Honoraria: Artists will receive a standard 50% commission on all sales.

Criteria: Selections will be based on the quality, originality, and craftsmanship of their work.

Project Rates: The chosen artist is responsible for the transport and delivery of the works. FOUND:RE will install, insure and secure all works for a period of four months, after which time they will be returned to the artists. Works can remain for sale on the website under consignment for a limited-term contract to be determined by negotiation between FOUND:RE’s Curator of Art & Culture and the exhibiting artists. This is an offer that may be extended beyond the original terms and dates if the artist is interested, but it is not mandatory. A formal offer for representation may be extended to those artists of superior merit but being accepted to exhibit is neither a contract for representation nor an offer of representation. All works accepted will be on consignment for the terms of the exhibition unless other terms are agreed upon in advance between the curators and the artist.
