JUROR: Kate Mothes, Founder of Young Space

Young Space began as a blog, as a way for curator/founder Kate Mothes to connect with artists and exhibitions in Scotland during postgraduate study at the University of Edinburgh.

After she moved back to Wisconsin, USA, it grew into a nomadic project platform, where it has taken the shape of numerous collaborative projects, in addition to the online platform. After going on hiatus for several months, it was re-launched in October 2016 with a new format, featuring original interviews and other content. Since then, it has grown exponentially, leading to a brand new website relaunch and series of projects in March 2018.

Young Space is, first and foremost, an independent curatorial project organized by Kate Mothes. The online platform continues to emphasize new and exciting work by early-career and emerging artists. Exhibitions are coordinated nomadically, nationally and internationally, in collaboration with artists and spaces. Young Space continues to expand and reconfigure in response to artists’ input and participation.

ELIGIBILITY: MFA graduates from the past two years and current candidates from both the US and abroad, of all genders, ethnicities, and from all backgrounds are welcome to apply. We accept works in any medium: painting, sculpture, digital art, printmaking, fiber/textile art, photography, mixed media, installation, etc. 

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: 3+ jpeg images of different artworks, a text document with a bio and artist statement, website or social media link, and your email address. If your work is three-dimensional, you may include additional images of installation views or detailed shots at no extra cost. Please see our Submittable form for further details. Please note that for best results, artists should include works from the same series per each submission. 

SUBMISSION FEE: $25 early-bird discount (price valid until June 30, 2019) $30 for 3 images (submission fees are non-refundable)
