Curatorial Call

Exhibition Proposals

Art Interactive, a non-profit exhibition space in Cambridge, MA, invites curators to submit proposals for 8-week exhibitions. Art Interactive’s mission is to provide a public forum that fosters self-expression and human interaction through the development and exhibition of art that is contemporary, experimental, and participatory. Learn more about Art Interactive’s past exhibitions here.

Art Interactive encourages proposals that present work in any media, but each proposal must address the goals described in the curatorial mission statement. Please note that Art Interactive discourages artists who are acting as curators from submitting proposals that include their own work.

Art Interactive is located in the Central Square neighborhood of Cambridge, MA. The exhibition space is approximately 2,000 square feet with 16-foot ceilings. Two exterior glass walls provide extensive natural light, and the space can be partitioned by four movable modular wall panels. Visits to the space during gallery hours are encouraged, and a floor plan is available upon request.
