Side x Side


  • Side x Side Contemporary is a non-profit online platform with a mission to open the margins of contemporary art with an accessible and expansive program for viewing and exhibiting the work of global artists. 

  • We are creating a new kind of approachable venue by eliminating some of the barriers to exhibiting work on an international level. Through initiatives such as blind jurying processes, free open calls, and unrestricted geographical participation, we are opening doors to circulate fresh viewpoints from a worldwide audience. We exist to support artists of varying backgrounds by creating a space for opportunity, interconnection, and exchange.



  • Side x Side Contemporary has several opportunities for global artists during each year including, but not limited to, online exhibitions, interviews, and social media features/exhibitions. Contemporary artists from anywhere on this planet are encouraged to apply. Side x Side Contemporary runs by volunteer curators who are interested in finding and exhibiting strong, quality work from global artists at every level. We are also committed to supporting marginalized and underrepresented artists.
