QM&A Open Call

No more submissions possible

What`s happening?

Every year Improperwalls in association with ππ”π„π’π“πˆπŽπ πŒπ„ & 𝐀𝐍𝐒𝐖𝐄𝐑 is publishing an open call inviting artists of all disciplines to apply and become part of the next QM&A Artist Collective. With the help of an external jury they select up to 16 artists out of all applications. The selected artists are divided in groups of two or three people with which they will be co-creating an artwork. Our focus is on bringing together people who work in different disciplines and have a different perspective on Vienna’s art sector and its inclusivity. In most cases that means that QM&A pair an artist who only recently arrived in Vienna as a migrant or refugee with an artist who has already been living in Vienna for a long time. The groups have several months’ time to produce artworks together that are then exhibited as part of a group show of the entire QM&A Artist Collective. This exhibition will take place in a suitable gallery space in Vienna that has yet to be confirmed. All groups are assigned a curator to support their artistic process.
While the artists primarily work with their group of two to three artists, different events are organized for the entire collective to get to know each other and other actors in the Viennese art scene better. The events can include guided tours in museums, studio visits and talks with various actors inside the Viennese cultural sector. Additionally, we facilitate solo exhibits or smaller group exhibits for the selected artists in various galleries they work with.
