SIDESHOW Call for Entries

Second Sundays in Summer 2020

At EXTRA Projects, we love to support and champion new and engaging work from folks with unique viewpoints. One of the ways we do this is through hosting different events at our project space on Diversey Avenue in Chicago. Starting this summer, though, we’re launching a new project.

We are now accepting applications for new video artwork to be shown as part of our inaugural juried summer video screening series. Presented in collaboration with guest juror and curator Jefferson Godard of Aspect/Ratio Gallery, we will project selected video works onto the exterior of our building for enjoyment from our beautiful adjacent side lot during summer 2020.

Submissions are due Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 11:59PM PST. Act fast, and good luck!


  • Screening dates: June 14, July 12, and August 9, 2020
  • Screening time: 7:00-9:00PM
  • Selected works will be selected based on artistic merit.
  • Selected works will be organized into three thematically related screenings. It’ll be some fun parties!
  • In addition, we will host the selected works on our website until the conclusion of the screening series.


  • Single channel video work only, please.
  • Sound is OK! Please mix to stereo or mono.
  • No set limits on subject matter.
  • Approximately 20 minute maximum runtime.
  • Keep in mind this will be publicly viewable.
  • Also note this will be shown outdoors, which may affect how people understand your work. We hope you’ll take advantage of this!
