Roman Susan | Open Project Proposals

Submitted by RomanSusan on Fri, 01/20/2017 - 1:51pm

Have an idea for a project or community event you think would be a good fit at Roman Susan? We are happy to review all proposals, and will reply to submitted ideas with potential availability on a seasonal basis. 

Roman Susan favors proposals which:

     Engage our neighborhood;

     Reflect communities in our immediate vicinity;

     Showcase Midwestern artists;

     Transform our space;

     Promote open curatorial practices; and

     Compliment our current trajectory.

Scheduling (rough estimates):

     Solo or paired exhibits: 3-10 days setup + 2-3 weeks exhibition + 2-3 days deconstruct = 4 weeks

     Single weekend exhibits: 2-3 days setup + 2-3 day exhibition + 1-2 days deconstruct = 1 week

     One nighters: 8-24 hours

Visiting our space before preparing a proposal is strongly recommended. We reside in a corner storefront, 85 meters northwest of the Loyola Red Line CTA Station, with large south-facing windows, track lighting, a sunken gallery floor from the street with blue-gray carpet, and almost no in-gallery storage. 

Below are additional materials for an idea of the gallery’s spatial resources:

     Google street view tour February 2015; January 2014May 2013February 2013;

     3D model (skp); and

     Floorplan (pdf).

To propose, please send a detailed written outline of your project to
