Call for Submissions: See/Saw
ABOUT THE SEE/SAW SERIES AT RED/ORANGE PLACE
We are looking for two friends/enemies/partners/relatives/etc. to collaborate on works for an inaugural two-person show at red/orange place. Whether it’s painting, sculpture, film, literature, performance, installation, a happening, sound art, or anything else, we are interested and will do our best to accommodate all of your needs. The exhibition can last from one night up to a few weeks, depending on what you think is best in your proposal.
WHAT TO SUBMIT AND HOW
-a project description indicating what you two want to do in our space, what you will be exploring and experimenting with, and what you need from us in terms of time or installation materials/space. Works for the show don’t have to exist yet, as we expect many of them will be made specifically for the space, so you can just describe works you plan on making – if that’s the case.
-both of your portfolios/websites/cv/anything you have that shows your work
Send all of that and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 25th, 2017 to be considered for our first show!

ABOUT RED/GALLERY PLACE
red/orange place is a temporary summer exhibition space run by Riley Cavanaugh and Maya Simkin out of our apartment and roof in Bedstuy, Brooklyn. Red/orange is the color of the outside of our home and also the color of your closed eyelids when you lay on the grass on a hot day.
We want red/orange place to foster artistic experimentation. By virtue of being an exhibition space within a home and on top of a roof, our shows will interact with that environment. May red/orange place be a place for artistic flexibility, creativity, problem-solving, and camaraderie.
No racism, transphobia, or general jerks will be tolerated. Our apartment is located on the third floor of our building, and we hope to have most gatherings on our rooftop which is only accessible via ladder. This makes it an inaccessible space for many, but we are committed to helping anyone experience red/orange place to the best of our ability, so please let us know if you want to come, and we can create something for you.
