Looking for a space to realize a creative project in the arts and present it to the public? Apply to be part of Studio 170, the Goethe-Institut’s new Open Space project.
Starting in Fall of 2019, we are opening up our unique, flexible space at 170 Beacon Street in Back Bay to artists and creative minds as a “laboratory” for ideas, unaffected by rental, institutional or academic restraints. The goal is to counter the lack of affordable space in the Boston area for artists and creative minds to develop their ideas and projects.
Possible projects can be anything from installations, performances/actions, artist talks, panel discussions and readings to film screenings, exhibitions and digital projects, and beyond. The time frame is flexible within a given two week period. Innovative and experimental projects will be favored.
A jury consisting of renowned artists and curators in New England will select five projects to be realized between December 2019 and December 2020 in our beautifully newly-renovated building.
Applicants are invited to submit proposals along the lines of our current programming topics, although there is no requirement to do so. The topics for this year are:
Democracy / Sustainability / Migration
We offer the use of the Goethe-Institut public space for the duration of the project.
