Have you had cool ideas percolating in your mind since before Richard Prince unleashed his Instagram “paintings” series at the Gagosian Gallery last fall? Did you end up kicking yourself since that was your idea, too (and he beat you to it)? And, thus did Prince’s updates to said series at the Frieze Art Fair this month really have you wishing for a place to explore your most experimental ideas?

Great, because here’s your chance: REVERSE Gallery has an open call going on right now for curators to submit proposals for an exhibition of contemporary art. Find out the details.
