As they always do, the AGAVF have put together their latest call for submissions and other points of interest. A wonderful collection, and I pass on the latest link to you here.
This also just came in from the New Gallery in Calgary. They’ve had some excellent programming and are always a place of interest.
THE NEW GALLERY : MAIN SPACE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Deadline: June 30, 2013
The New Gallery (TNG) is currently seeking proposals for our 2014 Main Space programming. A detailed floor plan and additional information can be found on our website: https://thenewgallery.org/submit.
Main Space programming comprises exhibitons by artists, collaborators, curators, and other cultural producers from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. We work closely with artists to create critically-relevant shows that advance contemporary art in our local and national communities. Please note that TNG accepts proposals for solo shows, but the Programming Committee may also consider individual artists for inclusion in a curated group project.
TNG is an non-profit artist-run centre and observes CARFAC-stipulated payment schedules, offering an artist fee of $1739 for a solo show. Additionally, we provide limited financial resources to aid artists in managing shipping and travel costs.
The following materials should be included in your application:
1. Proposal: Briefly describe your exhibition or Main Space project. Provide complete details of your spatial, physical, and material requirements, including any special equipment and technical needs.
2. Artist Statement: Discuss how your proposed project is situated in relation to your current artistic practice and the broader context of your work, research, and interests.
3. Support: Please include up to fifteen pieces of additional support material, including digital images, videos, text excerpts, or audio clips alongside a corresponding numbered image list detailing the artwork’s title, medium, physical size, date of completion, and any other necessary descriptors. Our Programming Committee will review up to a maximum of five minutes of time-based work.
4. Curriculum Vitae: Describe your artistic background to a maximum length of three pages. Please include all relevant contact information.
The New Gallery only accepts digital submissions via e-mail. Paper materials will be discarded and recycled. Please format all written materials as a single .pdf document. Images must be numbered RGB .jpeg files with a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels at 72 dpi and no larger than 1 MB in size. TNG accepts links to video and audio work hosted online. E-mailed applications must be submitted in a single .zip folder containing both documents and images.
