Call for Submissions: Windows to Paradise
In a time when social distancing has widened the gap between us, what openings have helped create windows of connection? Conversely, what is it that you've found yourself longing for, just out of reach? What kind of world do you want to see?
Artists are encouraged to play with escapism, and explore the multitude of meanings and contexts that the terms "windows” and “paradise” can evoke.
We encourage submissions from emergent artists working in the media arts sphere, with an emphasis on photography and animation.
Selected works will be displayed in the windows of selected partner galleries at night. Chosen artwork will be displayed at participating venues at night like CSI Spadina, Remote Gallery, Onyx Barbers and on our online gallery.
Extended deadline: June 18th
