Selection Process for Exhibitions

Applications for exhibitions at BaCA are received on a rolling basis. We welcome proposals for individual and group exhibitions by artists, curators, collectives, organizations.

To assist in the selection process, a committee of five members from Pompano Beach and Broward arts community will provide feedback in the selection of exhibiting artists from the pool of submissions collected by BaCA Staff.

Twice a year the committee reviews the submissions and scores each entry following a standard numeric guide that helps evaluate each submission. When it is time for review, BaCA staff prepares the committee members, notifies them of the process, and distributes the electronic submissions received from the time of the last review to each committee member. Committee members have three weeks to complete the revision process and submit their evaluations.

Evaluation will be done electronically on a web-based platform, allowing each committee member to participate at their own pace and convenience. BaCA staff is available to answer questions throughout the selection process.

Committee members have the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback to the artists that are not selected to encourage them to improve their application and submit again.

Exhibition proposals that are approved by the committee will be scheduled in the Exhibition Calendar following BaCA’s curatorial themes. BaCA’s exhibition calendar is schedule a year in advanced; selected exhibitions take place within the following couple of years.

All applicants will be notified of their selection status within 30 days of the final results from the Committee, and planning for scheduling approved exhibitions will start by BaCA staff.

The process will repeat six months after. Committee members serve on one-year terms that can be renewed up to three years, for minimum of two reviews and a maximum of six reviews.
