Edmonton | Calls for Submissions: Latitude 53 and Visualeyez

Curatorial expressions of interest

As a new initiative, Latitude 53 is interested in exploring how artists can benefit from having their work shown and contextualized with other artists in a small group setting. Latitude 53 looks to match artists who are exploring similar themes or working within similar practices of creation. Latitude 53 looks to present exciting opportunities for artists to form new insights about their work by organizing small group exhibitions of 2–5 artists.

To this end, Latitude 53 is seeking a curator, writer, or other facilitator to work on a peer-to-peer basis in the realization of each group project for an extended period, in an artist-centred context. Latitude 53 hopes to enhance each artist’s individual work through curation and writing while maintaining an equitable relationship between all contributors.
