ODD GALLERY

The ODD Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space housed in KIAC. The ODD Gallery's year-round programming features solo and group exhibitions (selected and curated by committee) by regional, national and international visual artists, as well as the annual thematic project, The Natural & The Manufactured. The gallery also presents a wide array of outreach programming including artist talks, openings, lectures, screenings, youth programs and other special events. Gallery programming fosters professionalism and appreciation of regional visual arts practice and provides the community with exposure and access to a diverse range of national and international contemporary visual arts practices and theories.

The Natural & The Manufactured project re-examines the various cultural and economic values imposed on the environment, while exploring alternative political, social, economic and aesthetic strategies towards a re-interpretation of landscape and social infrastructure. Formerly programmed through an artist's call for submissions, the Gallery now seeks proposals from guest curators. The N&M curator will program exhibition-creation residencies for 2 artists (summer, 2019), resulting in 2 site-specific exhibitions opening Thursday August 15th, 2019 as part of the Yukon Riverside Arts Festival. The guest curator will host a public talk about the project as part of the festival and will provide an exhibition text for the brochure.

For application guidelines regarding both the general exhibition call and The Natural & the Manufactured thematic call, visit the ODD Gallery online: klondikeinstituteofartandculture.ca/odd-gallery/calls-for-submissions
