Exhibition Submission Process
All first-year CCA undergraduate students, including transfer students, who are enrolled in Core Studio and first-year elective courses are eligible.
Students may submit 2–3 works. In terms of large-scale works, "If you can carry it to the Oliver, you can submit it!"
If you have an oversized work, an installation, or a work that has a particular set-up, please bring documentation of the work (preferably photographs) and installation shots for the jurors to review. If the work is selected, you will be contacted to discuss the feasibility of presenting the actual work at the exhibition.
Video, audio, and online projects must be submitted on CD/DVD (always double-check that your CD/DVD is readable prior to submission). Send digital images for performance-based work. (You may submit a written description of time-based projects if it will help jurors better understand your work and its needs.)
Video: format for Standard Definition 720 x 480, NTSC
Export as best-quality QuickTime (QT) files with either .mov or .dv file extensions.
Audio: submit as MP3 or AIFF files
Online: provide URL or submit a copy of your site folder in your home directory
Performance: submit works as photo documentation
You will receive notification for when to drop off your work at the Oliver Art Center. The exhibition is typically juried two days prior to the opening.
Selected or Not Selected
Selected: Students whose work is accepted are required to pick up their work by a designated time the day after the show closes.
Not selected: Students are contacted via email the day after work is dropped off. Students are given a time frame within 24 hours that they are required to pick up their work.
