Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington is currently accepting proposals for SOLOS 2025, a series of solo exhibitions by Mid-Atlantic artists. Contemporary artists living or working in the Mid-Atlantic region are invited to propose solo exhibitions to take place in one of the Museum’s gallery spaces. Proposals are accepted through an open call and selected by guest jurors, in consultation with Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington staff. The exhibitions selected for SOLOS 2025 will take place in one of two time slots, either February 14 – May 25, 2025 or June 13 – September 7, 2025. Once artists are selected, MoCA Arlington staff will work with artists to determine the timing for the selected artists.

Artists are encouraged to propose new bodies of work, installations, or projects and to consider the available exhibition spaces in their proposal. Exhibition proposals should include the preferred gallery for the proposed work, especially if the artist feels strongly about exhibiting in a particular gallery.
