CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
ARTSPACE Peterborough is seeking proposals from visual, performance, and new media artists for its 2014/15 programming season.
2014/15 Deadline: May 28, 2013 (postmarked)
ARTSPACE is dedicated to presenting work from contemporary artists working in a variety of disciplines. We strive to present art that reflects and promotes the diversity of cultural and political perspectives that shape contemporary art practices. Submissions from emerging, mid-career and senior artists whose works are alternative, experimental and/or critically engaged are welcome. ARTSPACE receives a high volume of submissions. Before submitting, please look at past exhibitions and projects at www.artspace-arc.org to decide if your work fits the gallery mandate.
With multiple exhibition spaces available, we invite artists to apply in the following streams:
MAIN GALLERY: designated for the presentation of solo and group shows. We invite artists, collectives and curators to apply with new or existing exhibition proposals. Video installations will not be considered for the Main Gallery given the natural light in the space from full exposure windows.
MUDROOM: a black-box gallery designated for the presentation of short-term, experimental projects predominantly by local and regional artists, as well as presentation of video installations and single channel works.
NEW MEDIA: we are seeking proposals for Media installations. Please note all technical requirements in proposals.
PERFORMANCE/RESIDENCY: We are seeking proposals for original performance pieces. We are also interested in works that are participatory in nature and fall under the category of relational aesthetics. In addition, we invite artists to consider doing workshops and lectures during their stay in an effort to engage local artists in research and production. Duration of residency may vary depending on the nature of work and research.
ARTSPACE asks that all proposals be submitted electronically on CD or DVD. Disks should be clearly labeled by artist name and must be readable on MAC OSX. Please save supporting documents as individually labeled pdfs (CV.pdf, Proposal.pdf, StatementandBio.pdf etc.).
ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST INCLUDE:
Images should be labeled numerically with the artist’s name (01_name.jpg, 02_name.jpg etc.) and should be no larger than 1024 x 768 at 300 dpi. Video documentation may be presented either in DVD format or as Mac OSX playable files. Please select a clip that runs no longer than 5 mins. Please include an Image/Video list with brief descriptions.
Do not submit original artwork. ARTSPACE does not return submission packages and will dispose of materials appropriately.
Artist fees paid according to CARFAC schedule
Please send submissions to:
P.O. Box 1748
Peterborough ON K9J 7X6
ARTSPACE does not accept submissions packages via email.
Please allow 3-4 months for consideration.
Programming decisions are made by the Programming/Publications Committee which is composed of the Director, the Media Arts Coordinator, 2 working artists and curators from the Board of Directors and Membership, and 1 invited artist or curator from outside of Peterborough. Proposals are judged in relation to ARTSPACE's mandate and programming focus.
In the past, ARTSPACE has presented exhibitions organized by staff, advisory panels, and guest curators, with artworks drawn primarily (but not exclusively) from an open-call review process.
ARTSPACE pays recommended CAR/FAC artist fees. Group shows have various fees according to the number of participants and work included. Duration of exhibitions may vary from project to project. In addition to artist fees, ARTSPACE pays for the transportation of work one-way, up to a maximum amount; installation and documentation costs; a reception; publicity; and insurance coverage. Short-term accommodation can also be provided.
Ontario Arts Council is offering Exhibition Asssistance for individual artists.
The program provides grants of $500 to $1,500 to assist individual artists with costs related to presenting their work for an exhibition. Grants are made through third-party recommenders (public art galleries, artist-run centres and arts service organizations) throughout the province. Artists must apply directly to a recommender located in the zone in which they live. Approved applications are forwarded to OAC by the recommender once the decision to award a grant has been made. Eligibility: This program is open to Ontario-based professional visual artists, craft artists and media artists who have a confirmed, upcoming public exhibition.
We accept digital images on a CD or a DVD. Our specific areas of expert assessment are Visual Art and Media Art. Please contact us at ARTSPACE for more information.
