Painting The Figure Now 2019

July to September 2019

Wausau Museum Of Contemporary Art


Zhou B Art Center, Chicago

DEADLINE: March 1, 2019


Publication and Traveling Exhibition


This is an invitational and open call for publication and exhibition at the Wausau Museum Of Contemporary Art and Zhou B Art Center in Chicago. The 2019 season has several curators inviting artists to participate in the publication. All the invited artists will be published in a special edition of PoetsArtists with many of the curators writing about their selections.

We have an open call to submit by the deadline where we will be selecting additional artists to be published along with the invited artists. See list below of the artists invited to participate in the publication.

The museum directors of each venue (David Hummer and Sergio Gomez) will then choose from all the published works which will hang in their venue.

Please note that if your work is selected to exhibit by both venues the artwork will hang for approximately 6 months. You have an option to choose both venues or one. See submission form.

Again, the invited artists including the accepted open call artists will be published. The venue directors will then select from the publication which works will hang. If your work is selected to hang in both, it will be transported from WMOCA to ZBAC. Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the venue where the work is hanging unless it sells. We will notify all accepted artists for the publication and whose work will be hanging sometime after the deadline. Furthermore, if your work is not selected to be hung at either venue, we will offer the selected published artists an option to have the work available through on online exclusive exhibition on the Zhou B Art Center’s Artsy and/or Artnet page. Agreements from both venues will be sent to all the artists. Their commission structure will be in place. It will vary so please make sure to read the agreements carefully.

Use the link provided for our members to submit to this call found here.

Invited Artists by our curators which include Didi Menendez, Jay Menendez, Victoria Selbach, Zach Tutor, Barry Blinderman, John Dalton, Leslie Guy, Daniel Maidman, Sergio Gomez, and Lorena Kloosterboer.
