Artists notified by July 30, 2023
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
ARTSPLACE seeks proposals from individual artists, collectives or curators.
As a community arts organisation in a rural area, we are particularly interested in proposals that offer opportunities to connect the project/exhibition with the public.
Proposals that combine the project/exhibition with a residency are welcome. Such residencies are unpaid. Artists proposing a residency are encouraged to apply for additional support funding.
This program is generously supported through the Canada Council for the Arts and the Province of Nova Scotia.
ARTSPLACE supports a variety of artistic practices within contemporary visual arts, as defined by the Canada Council for the Arts (photography, fine craft, performance art, independent curating, critical writing and publishing in the visual arts and architecture. It embraces emergent forms and multidisciplinary practices that include, but are not limited to, artist’s books, audio, video, film, and other innovative forms of visual arts expression that use digital technology as an integral part of the finished work).
Once a year, proposals are reviewed by the Exhibition Committee, a jury of professional artists.
Successful submissions are selected based on artistic merit, connection to the community, and viability.
We present up to 4 exhibits each year. Typically, exhibits are four to seven weeks long.
Juried exhibitions are fee paid, and the work is not for sale for the duration of the exhibition.
*Eligibility of artists:
- Only one proposal per applicant
- Concise and clear exhibition proposal and artist statement
- Images can include audio/video samples. Please, edit appropriately for viewing with your name and the corresponding number on the supplied image list (e.g. 01_SmithJ). Where possible, please provide installation shots
- Copies of catalogue texts or reviews, as well as links to interviews or artist talks (if relevant)
ARTSPLACE has one accessible parking space. The Main Gallery is wheelchair accessible, as is the washroom.
