Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs ('DGCP') is announcing an open call to curators, writers, art historians, and artists to submit proposals for exhibitions. Guidelines for submitting a proposal and other information is available at our website: The guidelines link is at the bottom of the homepage.

You may contact us directly by email:, or by phone: (718) 937-6317

Proposals are reviewed quarterly, and if accepted, curators are awarded a $2,000 curatorial fee at the time of the exhibition.

Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs ('DGCP') is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting contemporary visual arts to a broad public audience. Our programs of independently-curated exhibitions, publications, educational outreach, and art donations seek to illuminate and deepen the public's understanding and appreciation of contemporary art as well as to foster dialogue about contemporary art.

The role of independent curators is central to our exhibition program—applications are judged on the basis of originality, scholarship, aesthetics, and relevance to illuminating current issues in contemporary art as well as the quality of the proposed artworks. Additionally, emphasis is placed on the skill of the curator in formulating and writing about the underlying idea of the project.

With each exhibition, we produce and distribute an illustrated brochure to nearly 4,000 members of our audience—artists, art historians, critics, and arts-related institutions worldwide. The illustrated brochures feature a 2,000-2,500-word essay by the curator detailing the project's raison d'etre. The brochures are integral to our exhibition program; they clearly elucidate the intellectual underpinnings of the exhibition and serve as permanent reference materials in the collections of museums, libraries, universities, scholars and individuals throughout the world.

In conjunction with the exhibition program, DGCP sponsors educational outreach (panel discussions, artists and curators talks, etc.) through which the curators and artists have a chance to interact directly with our audience. In the course of these afternoons, a rich dialogue develops on issues of contemporary art relative to the specific subjects and themes of each exhibition.
