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, we wish to pay particular attention to projects that reflect on future feminisms. While utopias and dystopias are familiar themes in contemporary art, the committee aims to explore the role of feminist postures in the conceptualization of other temporalities and worlds. We invite artists and curators at all stages of their careers to submit proposals related to this theme, which will inform a portion of the upcoming programming. Projects that fall outside of this thematic will also be considered, so long as they relate to the centre’s mandate.
La Centrale welcomes proposals for regular 4-week exhibitions that are accompanied by professional artist fees, for weeklong Master’s thesis defence exhibitions (no artist fees), for window projects that are realized during the seasonal closing of the gallery in December and August, and for special short-term events such as performances and/or projections.
