WHAT IS THE SELECTION PROCESS?

Artists exhibiting at Solo Art Fair 2018 will present works of art that conform with the fairs strict exhibition guidelines. Solo Art Fair is a highly curated exhibition for artists. The Selection Committee will be comprised of contemporary art world experts to include curators, critics, gallerists, and artists. Acceptance is limited to just 80 national and international artists and artist residencies.

Submissions will be reviewed and carefully approved by our Selection Committee.
