Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a sculptor were on Shark Tank? Or a contemporary dancer were on America’s Got Talent? Work In Real Time is a monthly arts salon-meets-project incubator that will take place in the atrium of UB Center for the Arts.

Every month artists across disciplines will present their works in progress to a panel of judges and at the end of each evening a total of $1,500 and expertise from artists and funders will be awarded to worthy projects. Work In Real Time will take place on March 10, April 15, and May 5 and start at 4:30 p.m.

Work In Real Time producers are seeking submissions from artists to participate in this playful public competition. Artists should propose new projects they are working through, or projects that they have hoped to realize but have yet to. The producers are excited to include artists from every discipline and experience level. Selected artists will have up to 10 minutes to present their ideas in an engaging and exciting way. Each presentation will be followed by 10 minutes of questions and responses from a rotating panel of judges, including a guest visiting artist in each round. To submit a proposal for one of the three events, artists should fill out a submission form below.

Work In Real Time is a public platform to present works in progress and to empower artists from UB and the Buffalo community to implement new directions, practices, or collaborations in their artistic ideas. Work In Real Time aims to nurture the growth and development of interdisciplinary works by UB students in the arts and foster a dialogue among UB, Buffalo, and visiting artists to enable cross-pollination between disciplines, sensibilities and cities.

Work In Real Time is organized by UB Arts Collaboratory, UB Center for the Arts, the Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art, Kyla Kegler (MFA '18) and UB faculty and students.
