Living Arts Exhibition Application (2024)
Living Arts presents and develops critically- engaged contemporary art in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We are a platform for evolving ideas and aesthetics, interdisciplinary and community empowerment through exhibitions, workshops, performances, films, lectures, and education: engendering artistic integrity and experimentation for a thoughtful and rigorous arts ecology. Provide the selection committee with an understanding of your artistic practice and how your work connects to the mission of the organization. Exhibitions will be accepted based on committee approval and calendar availability. Our 2023 exhibition calendar is currently full, so you are applying for the 2024 calendar year.
Living Arts considers education a vital component of aesthetic experience: shared vocabulary around contemporary art and knowledge production are key qualities of art engagement. Living Arts works with the youth community (grades 5th – 12th) through free after-school programs, a low-cost summer camp, and in-school residencies in order to explore and produce non-traditional, new genre artistic practices, such as video, performance, and installation. Living Arts employs regional, national, and international teaching artists from a variety of backgrounds.
