Open Call.png

MAIDEN LA is an inclusive and expansive survey of Los Angeles art happenings throughout the month of August. It considers the city as a platform for generative discourse and exchange and aims to dissolve hierarchies by connecting artists, collectives, curators, galleries, museums, et cetera. 2018 marks its third iteration.

MAIDEN LA--a playful anagram and homophone of the Hammer Museum’s ‘Made in LA’-- is a call to assemble and host open studios, group shows, performances, web-based works, or any variety of self-initiated projects in both traditional and unconventional spaces. Artists, organizers, and self-started spaces are encouraged to host a project anytime during the month of August, and to submit project details for inclusion in an online directory and printed guide.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE is June 15, 2018 11:59 p.m. PST
