CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
ARTSPACE Peterborough is seeking proposals from visual, performance, and new media artists for its 2013/14 programming season.
DEADLINE: MAY 21 2012 (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.).
