CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: SITE SPECIFIC PROPOSALS

deadline: January 15, 2018

exhibit schedule:
Spring Equinox – March 20, 2018 to June 20, 2018
Summer Solstice – June 20, 2018 to September 22, 2018
Fall Equinox – September 22, 2018 to December 21, 2018
Winter Solstice – December 21, 2018 to March 20, 2019

Above dates include installation time. Applicants must be prepared to install for the spring equinox exhibition slot - March 20, 2016. Note that although preference of installation equinox/solstice may be expressed, upon selection, the Stantec Window Gallery Committee will make the final decision on installation date.

call for submissions:
The Stantec Window Gallery is located in Toronto's historic Garment District at the corner of Spadina Avenue and Wellington Street West, in the former home of the McGregor Sock Factory. In an effort to 'give back' to the community – economically, environmentally and culturally, a part of the Stantec office retrofit, the original retail entrance to the McGregor Sock Factory was reconceived as a contemporary art gallery to be open and experienced by all: pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, streetcar riders, and skateboarders, free of charge. Installations rotate on a quarterly basis, at solstice and equinox. Curated and sponsored by the office, artists are provided with subsidized funding to create their installation.

submission requirements:
Work of any genre or discipline will be considered, but we are looking for site specific proposals that respond to the unique spatial and cultural condition of the gallery and to engage the streetscape.

Artists are asked to consider the varying site conditions and changes over 24 hours such as light conditions and glare, lighting requirements, and perspective from the street.

In addition, the following requirements are essential:

  • Artist must be present for install and de-install
  • Work can’t be adhered (attached to) the window wall
  • Cutting on the gallery window surfaces is not permitted
  • Artists are to provide a description of the materials to be used
  • Submission must closely resemble the actual finished work
  • No noise generating devices are permitted as part of the installation
  • Any damage to the gallery as a result of the artwork or installation/de-installation of the artwork must be paid for by the artist
  • Artist must reside in Canada (or does not require immigration/border crossing clearance assistance from Stantec)

Artists will receive a flat fee of $500 CAD. Artists are responsible for all costs associated with materials, installation and disassembling. Stantec will also cover the marketing cost of one Akimbo ad posting, as well as professional photography of the exhibit. Artists may request a hard copy of the photo, but no digital file will be provided.

Please provide one combined 8.5" x 11" pdf that includes in the following order:

  1. Cover - 1 page – concept image shown in the context of the window (view from the street)
  2. Proposal Description / Concept - 1 page – provide: name, phone number and e-mail, 250 word max. description of the exhibit (including title of the exhibit) for Akimbo Ad and on our website, and, if applicable, preference of installation date of winter solstice, spring equinox, summer solstice or autumn equinox.
  3. Sketches of the Proposed Work - as many (in addition to the cover image) required to convey the idea of the exhibit.
  4. Curriculum Vitae - provide a 2 page maximum CV

Please send submissions to: windowgallery@stantec.com
