Call for Submissions: Carry-on! 2021 Centre A Holiday Art Market

Hosted by Centre A: Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art

Holidays are just around the corner, and wouldn’t it be nice to just pick up our luggage and take off somewhere? Our desire to travel, venture, and reach out to the loved ones far away grows bigger and bigger during this time of the year. Knowing that not everyone has such luxury to do so, Centre A would like to suggest a different way to finally dust off and use our carry-ons.

Carry-on! The 2021 Centre A Holiday Art Market encourages artists to submit artworks that can fit in a carry-on suitcase. The selected artworks will be featured and on display at Centre A for silent auction from December 4 to December 18, 2021. An opening event will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021, from 4 to 7 pm. Mark your calendars!

Submission is free, and will be juried by the Centre A curatorial team.

Go to https://forms.gle/j3kEnFuUS2vWXkqU6 to complete our online submission form.

Selection process:

  • All selected artworks must be ready to be dropped off at Centre A and for installation by December 1, 2021.
  • Accepted artists will receive a complimentary Centre A membership for a year
  • Accepted artworks will be bid on in the gallery during the exhibition period
  • Accepted artworks must be priced between 20 and 300 Canadian Dollars.
  • Accepted artists will receive 60% of the selling price of their artwork(s) sold during the exhibition

Application Deadline: November 13, 2021
