Call for Artists: Summer Intensive July 2018

High Concept Labs (HCL) supports artists and facilitates dialogue between artists, audiences, and staff. This increases access and transparency to the artistic process and fosters transformational experiences in an environment of experimentation and discovery.

High Concept Labs’ Summer and Winter Intensives are designed to provide artists with a dedicated studio space to develop their projects. Projects are chosen twice a year and last a period of one to two weeks.Through the intensive, artists will have the opportunity to create durational, long-term performances, installations, exhibitions, and more.                                               

Successful applicants to the Summer and Winter Intensives are emerging or established artists or collectives with a history of successful work (it does not need to be in the same discipline as the application project) and with clear goals for their residency. We do not accept artists currently enrolled in any form of degree program. Accepted artists are chosen to represent an array of artistic practices by members of HCL’s staff and Artistic Advisory Council.
