Frequently Asked Questions
I have a great piece, but no process. Will you accept
No. For this particular exhibition, artists must show
both process and product.

Most artists with complex interface equipment do so,
am a bit unclear about the number of works and slides
that are to be submitted with the form. Are you saying
that I can submit only three works of art per form?
You may submit three RELATED works under one form. In
other words, your artist statement would apply to all
three works. An example would be three images in a series.
If the work is unrelated or needs a separate artist
statement, then you need a new form. For example, if
you are submitting one image and one interactive program
or two images that require different statements. You
may submit up to three different forms.
I submit only two slides per work of art, one slide
of the piece and one detail of that piece of art?
Yes, you may optionally submit a detail. But you must
submit a duplicate of the slide of the piece. This is
for publication purposes.
there alternatives to 35mm slides? I have image files,
and can provide high-quality prints, but I have no way
to output to film.
Sorry, but we can only accept production-ready 35mm
slides for review and publication of accepted artworks.
We just don't have the time or resources to review all

would like to submit an interactive online artwork for
the Art Gallery. Would it be possible to submit only
Sorry, we can not accept just the URL for an interactive
submission. You may, however, submit your work on video
or disc as outlined in Installations,
Sculptures, Virtual Environments, Site-Specific, and
was going to mount my work. Do you have any recommendations.
For oversized c-prints or similar output, some artists
prefer their work hinge-mounted, some cold-mounted on
aluminum. If you go with the hinge, it will inevitably
warp a little. Cold mounting ensures that the print
lies flat, but it is a dicey job, so expert framers
all appear to have the same policy: they'll cold mount
it ONLY if they also output it. (I think because if
they screw up, they can always output it again.) It
is wise to have them professionally frame your work
while they have it.
have an over-sized work that I just want push-pinned
to the wall. Is this acceptable? How should I send it?
If this is for your process work, this is acceptable.
It is suggested that artists who send large works wrap
them around a sturdy tube, bubblewrap that assembly,
and put it in a larger tube or triangular box. If this
is for your final artwork, we require that it be professionally
framed and sent.
