Call for Submissions: SHIM


Brooklyn, NY

SHIM is pleased to announce an open call to visual artists in all media for our Invitational program.

SHIM is a new arts exhibition company that fills the gaps in the art world, providing exhibition opportunities to artists, curators, and other organizations and affiliations without the means to mount their projects on their own. 

SHIM Invitationals are our premier initiative for supporting the needs of individual artists seeking to exhibit their work. Invitationals take place twice each year in Brooklyn, New York at our home gallery in Bushwick.

If selected by our team, your work will be included in a two-week curated exhibition, with 100% of all sales retained by YOU, the artist. 


SHIM Invitational 4, will take place April 8th - 23rd, 2017 at ArtHelix in Brooklyn, NY.

Applications will be considered for SHIM Invitational 4 through February 19th.

SHIM Invitational 5 will take place in Fall 2017 at ArtHelix in Brooklyn, NY.

Once submitted, your application will be held and considered for SHIM's Invitational exhibitions for a period of 12 months.
