Open Call for Proposals: Exhibition Programming 2022-2023

Hosted by OBORO

OBORO invites artists, artist collectives and curators in visual arts, media and digital arts or interdisciplinary practices to propose exhibition projects to be presented between Fall 2022 through to the end of 2023. We are interested in innovative practices that offer a contemporary perspective on the issues facing us as individuals, as a society and as artists. OBORO’s mandate is to support creation in various cultural practices and to encourage innovation, experimentation, the exchanging of ideas and the sharing of knowledge. OBORO’s objective is to promote awareness and dialogue within the art world and society at large, and to contribute to a culture of peace.  

Your project can also include a performance or a proposal for a public event (guided visit, artist talk, workshop, master class, cultural mediation activity, etc.).  

Our regular installation period varies between 5 and 10 days, with up to 35 hours of assistance from our technicians. Please note that OBORO is not able to support the production of the works that will be exhibited. Therefore, the works must already be completed and ready to exhibit at the time of installation. 

Accessibility

OBORO particularly encourages Indigenous and culturally diverse artists and curators, as well as members of equity-seeking groups and under-represented communities to submit an exhibition proposal. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of artistic merit, coherence with OBORO’s mission and mandate, ecological impact, and feasibility.

OBORO seeks to support artists who are parents by researching childcare options and offering financial help whenever possible. If, for reasons pertaining to equity, you wish to submit your proposal in an alternate format, please contact us at oboro@oboro.net in order to make arrangements.
