CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 2017 - WINDOW PROJECTS

DEADLINE OCTOBER 15

La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse is a platform for contemporary feminist art practices that engage in intersectional, intercultural and multidisciplinary methods of working. The centre welcomes submissions by self-identified under-represented artists working in dialogue with issues of gender equality and social justice. La Centrale is an artist-run non-hierarchical organization. As such, the programming is selected and built by a committee composed of active members.

 

This year, the committee wishes to focus the call towards exhibitions and projects that activate the center's storefront window, which is located on Saint-Laurent Boulevard. Submitted projects are encouraged to use the window as a purposeful framing element, and to engage the neighborhood's residents and passers-by. All mediums are welcome. The projects must however be autonomous* throughout the presentation period and intersect with La Centrale's mandate.


* By autonomous we mean projects that do not require daily management after the work is installed (workers of La Centrale are not present during window exhibition periods). Static works as well as installations and videos that can be operated with timers fall into this category.

 

SUBMISSION SHOULD INCLUDE:

  • A completed application form (to be downloaded at the end of this page)
  • A curriculum vitæ
  • A proposal including project description (500 words or less), artist statement and a description of the technical requirements of your project
  • We encourage you to briefly (min.50 words) identify why your project relates to La Centrale's mandate. This will strengthen your proposal.
     

Documentation for your proposal :

  • Images (15 to 20 digital photos)
  • Video / audio documentation (if applicable) ( either links to videos online or Mail a support media dossier on CD or DVD)
  • A list describing all your documentation including title, media, dimensions of work and year of production.

 

* All material must be Mac OSX compatible
