The LA Forum is currently accepting proposals for the Summer 2013 exhibition schedule. In keeping with the Forum’s mission, we’re looking for exhibitions and installations that provoke discourse on contemporary architecture and urban design, problematize the politics of the built environment, and/or investigate Los Angeles as a site of cultural production.
Selected proposals will be on view July-August at WUHO Gallery, located on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame. This time-frame includes installation and de-installation of the proposed exhibitions.
Exhibition proposals should include the following:
1. Exhibition Title
2. Exhibition description, images and relevant source material
3. Exhibition construction budget including storefront graphics, display materials and title wall
4. List of secured and/or potential fiscal sponsors
5. Schedule of installation, exhibition and deinstallation
6. Description of post-exhibition documentation plans, if applicable
WUHO (Woodbury University Hollywood) Gallery Description
The gallery display area is approximately 15 feet wide x 60 feet deep x 13 feet tall. It may be occupied in any manner in order to make an architecturally-charged full-scale project or exhibition. The project may use any media and alter the envelope in a non-destructive way while maintaining accessibility standards. The gallery features a glass storefront on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame, and has a ceiling-mounted suspension system, the ‘Pendulum Plane’ designed by Oyler Wu Collaborative, that may be used to support the exhibition.
Exhibitions must be self-funded, but applicants will receive support from the LA Forum for publicity, opening reception event and staffed gallery hours for up to 15 hours per week (typically Fri/Sat/Sun 12-5pm). Request for extended hours may be considered if funding allows. Proposals must acknowledge that the gallery shall be restored to pre-exhibition status once the exhibition has been de-installed.
Exhibition Proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 10th, 2012. Winners will be notified by January 3, 2013.
