Open Call: The Next

The Li Tang Gallery is currently accepting submissions for its first online group show, The Next. In preparation for an era newly-shaped by a global pandemic, we are keen to present a platform for artists working across disciplines to share their evolving visions of our ongoing confrontation with The Spectacle. Subjects might include – but are not limited to – the ecosystem, social justice, decolonization, climate change, immigration, lifestyle, under-represented communities, and sustainability.

Artists at any stage of their career are invited to submit their work for consideration by our guest jury artist, Sizhu Li. The online group exhibition will be curated by the Li Tang team and promoted on Li Tang Gallery’s website, social media, and press coverage in both the United States and China.
