solo show BOOTCAMP

3 months dedicated to positioning your practice in contemporary discourse and setting it up to change the world

Your art practice is high stakes.

You're tackling the nuances of how culture is created and experienced in a way that no one else can. Without your work, important conversations might never happen, key connections might never be made, game changing ideas might never come to fruition.


You're the kind of artist who can't create in isolation because your art isn't made for you -- it's for the community, the culture, the world. Your art is of and for this moment, and you know better than anyone how much we all need it right now.


You owe it to us all to make sure your work is seen, and not just for the sake of being seen. You owe it to us to show your work in a context that highlights everything that's at stake.

A solo show is the best way to Really dig into the issues and ideas at stake in your work.

Not Just an Exhibition Opportunity

Solo Show Bootcamp is not only an exhibition opportunity, it is a one of a kind exhibition management residency for artists that will give you the tools and experience to make the most of your future opportunities and leverage them to build momentum around your work.


Throughout this 90-day experience, Casey will be your creative collaborator, creating space for the time and care necessary to both understand and join in your vision. Honoring you as the expert on your artwork, Casey brings an objective and research-based curatorial lens to each session as you work together to refine the language and context through which you present your work. 

The fruits of this creative collaboration will include:

  • A Co-curated Solo Exhibition on view in perpetuity in the Casey Can virtual gallery that powerfully positions your work within contemporary discourse

  • An Artist Interview published on the Casey Can blog that offers a thoughtful and intimate framework for understanding the work on a deeper level

  • A Curated Contact List of relevant press outlets, writers, scholars, curators, gallerists, and more who have dedicated themselves to the cultural conversations to which your work is contributing
