Open Call.png

MAIDEN LA is an inclusive and expansive county-wide survey of art happenings throughout the month of August 2017. The program encourages self-initiation, the use of alternative spaces, and the consideration of the city as a platform for generative discourse and exchange. Maiden LA is an egalitarian program that aims to create an open forum for artists, collectives, curators, galleries, museums, et cetera, to connect and share.

MAIDEN LA--a playful anagram and homophone of ‘Made in LA’--is a call to assemble and host open studios, group shows, performances, or any variety of self-initiated projects in both traditional and unconventional spaces during the month of August.

Artists, organizers, and self-started spaces are encouraged to host an event anytime during the month, and to submit project details for inclusion in an online directory and interactive map. There will also be a limited edition fold-out map that will act as a physical guide to the network.  

SUBMISSION DEADLINE has been extended to June 30, 2017 11:59 p.m. PST
