P.S. 122’s “Random and Regular” series gives artists the chance to show new, short work.

To be considered for any of the programs, please submit a VHS/DVD sample of your work, and information about yourself and your company (a press-kit, a bio, a resume, reviews, etc.). Please also include a short description of the work you are proposing. If you want your materials returned, you must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope !!!.

Please submit your proposal to the appropriate program for your work. Please DO NOT submit the same proposal to P.S. 122 more than once. Once submitted, your work may be considered for all “Random and Regular” programming, at the curators’ discretion.

P.S. 122 is not accepting unsolicited proposals for full presentations at this time. We’re digging through a HUGE pile of proposals and want to give everyone due consideration. When we’re caught up, we’ll notify everyone about our proposal process and schedule.Thanks for your understanding!
