CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS - WINDOW EXHIBITION 2021-2022 PROGRAMMING

Facebook Event

La Centrale galerie Powerhouse is an artist-run centre dedicated to the dissemination and development of multidisciplinary feminist practices. We are committed to supporting practices and artists who are not very visible in the dominant cultural institutions, and this at various stages of their careers. Our programming focuses on feminisms that enter into dialogue with intersectionality and social justice and is built on the basis of non-hierarchy and consensus by selection committees made up of active members of the centre.

The gallery’s window is a diffusion space that offers artists visibility directly on one of Montreal's most lively streets, Boulevard Saint-Laurent. The projects submitted must use the showcase as a scenographic element in order to create a dialogue between the work and the passers-by and residents of the neighbourhood. La Centrale welcomes visual artists from all disciplines who resonate with the centre's mandate. The selection committee encourages projects that require little technical manipulation as the workers will not be on site during the window exhibition periods.

We pay exhibition fees and honoraria according to the rates recommended by CARFAC. We also provide financial support to artists and professionals living outside of Montreal.

NOTE: Due to the pandemic and the postponements of exhibitions and activities that it has caused, the selection committees will unfortunately have to select a smaller number of projects than in previous years.
