Welcome to Baang + Burne 2014-15 Call to Entry / New Works Grant.
Entry Deadline: 1/31/15
This is the third year Baang + Burne has hosted a Call for Entry / New Works Grant. A spot on our gallery roster–representation and/ or a $2,500 cash award that recognizes the strongest new works proposal in contemporary art.
I know some of you must be wondering what is this all about, how is it different from all the other call for entries out there and what is in it for you.
Let’s start with what is Baang + Burne.
Baang + Burne is founded in 2010 by artist Kesha Bruce and myself. I came from 15 years of advertising and a career as a documentarian; Kesha has a solid track record as a fine art artist with an MFA from Hunter College. We wanted to do something different. We are romantic and idealistic in our belief of what art could be, the kind of advocates’ artists should have (creative, passionate, out-of-the-box-thinkers) and the type of dealers’ collectors should do business with (ethical and honest). The combination is tall order. So we created it ourselves.
Through 4 long years of exhibits, art fairs, auctions and collaborations, Baang + Burne has evolved into what it is today — and it is still growing. We are somewhere between a traditional gallery and an artist collective. You are represented and spirit of collaboration is our core value. Art is a long game and we will only ever come out of this alive if we are in it together.
Joshua King, Dominic Sansone, Richard Hart and Nathan Sharratte are four wonderful artists we connected with and currently represent during our previous call for entry. Cat del Bueno was our first new works grant recipient.
Baang + Burne is growing and we are looking for you.
Everyone has limited resources and time. Those are put under further restraints when you are an artist. We get it. If the fee is not within your budget, then please, do not submit. If being a part of Baang + Burne excites you, then we would love to see what you’ve been up to. If you’ve got a project underway and some money would help it along, click submit and put your name in the hat. We want to help you make new art.
We spent an enormous amount of time looking at what comes our way. Your submissions are not taken lightly. This is a place of mutual respect. We respect you for what you do and we ask you to extend us the same consideration.
Baang + Burne is growing. We are looking for you. Join us.
