Call for Artists 2022-23


Call for Artists

The African Studies Center at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is initiating an online exhibition series presenting early-career visual artists based in Africa. Our aim is to offer opportunities to artists who have not presented their work in a US venue. We seek artists who may benefit from the opportunity to share their work with US audiences through both the online venue and an online talk/dialogue event to be planned in conjunction with their exhibition. The first exhibition can be viewed here.

Rather than a formal application process, we request a link to the artist’s website or other online representation of artwork, a CV, and contact information. Artists must have access to high-resolution images of their work. A stipend/honorarium is provided. Nominations and self-nominations welcome.

For further information or to nominate an artist, contact Victoria Rovine, Co-Director, African Studies Center at
