Deadline: January 12, 2020
Hamilton Artists Inc. (The Inc.) is seeking dynamic proposals from artists, collectives and curators at various stages of their careers for its exhibition platforms and public programs. The Inc. exhibits a range of artistic disciplines and welcomes proposals from artists at all stages of their careers from local, regional and national communities. Our exhibition platforms include the Cannon Gallery, James Gallery, Cannon Project Wall, and ArcelorMittal Dofasco Courtyard. We also accept proposals to our public programs such as Photophobia: Contemporary Moving Image Festival and Special Projects.
As an artist-run centre, we are interested in works/projects that push boundaries and engage with critical, conceptual and/or experimental thinking from diverse perspectives. We encourage independent projects that activate our audiences and exhibition spaces in unique ways. We are committed to providing platforms for risk-taking and creating an inclusive space for exploring expanded art practices. In addition to our galleries, our Special Projects stream invites projects that do not take the form of regular exhibitions. The Inc. supports submissions that showcase artists and curators’ most recent endeavours as well as works that incite conversation and promote a range of intersectional narratives. We pay artists and curators based on the CARFAC fee standards.
We welcome submissions from artists of all backgrounds including, but not limited to, Indigenous, Black, and racialized persons; refugee, newcomer and immigrant persons; two-spirit, LGBTQ+ and gender non-binary persons, persons with disabilities, and those on low-incomes or living in poverty. Please advise us of any accommodations needed to ensure you can access and complete the submissions process.
