The Projects Gallery is one manifestation of UMOCA’s commitment to the local art community, ensuring that local artists have a presence here at all times. Only artists working in Utah are invited to propose an exhibition for the Projects Gallery, which may range from site-specific installations to artist-curated shows.
The Projects Gallery is the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art’s initiative to promote Utah artists as they engage the contemporary art world locally and nationally. It is the first exhibition space that visitors encounter when entering UMOCA and is solely dedicated to exhibiting the work of Utah artists, providing them with a professional exhibition environment, prominent exposure to UMOCA visitors, and through UMOCA’s increasing national ties, the possibility of greater exposure around the country.
In order to give applicants more time and flexibility in submitting their exhibition proposals, Projects Gallery submissions have a rolling deadline. Proposals currently under consideration will be reviewed and responded to as soon as possible.
We thank all applicants for their interest. Only applicants selected for an exhibition will be contacted. Unsolicited materials will not be returned.
