Loop Art Critique Explanation

Loop Art Critique (LAC) is a program that offers a residency and public showcase for artists. Applicants respond to an Open Call and are selected by guest Jurors without revealing their identities, as no names, biographical information or artist statements are required—only the artwork is reviewed. Because LAC operates within a virtual space, most artwork submissions are digital. However, physical artworks can be submitted with the understanding that they will be viewed as digital representations.

The program is divided into two phases

In the first phase, participants engage in a six-week residency featuring live critiques held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12 to 3 pm EST. During this time, they are immersed in a collaborative learning environment within a spatial internet environment aka a metaverse.

The program is divided into two phases

The second phase involves participants curating a public showcase of their work, culminating in an online reception, typically scheduled for a Friday from 1 to 3 pm EST. This event is documented and shared on Loop's YouTube and Twitch channels. The exhibition is for month.
