Applicants should assume that this exhibition will be a virtual installation on Bowery Gallery’s website. In the unlikely event that we are able to install an in-person exhibition, we will notify applicants in a timely manner. In either case the show will be publicized through Facebook, Instagram, email announcements, Artsy and the gallery blog, and will include links to artists’ websites.
