Calgary | Intersite Visual Arts: Call For Submissions

intersite visual arts festival logoDeadline: October 1st, 2017

Intersite Visual Arts advocates for contemporary art practices through the decentralized presentation of exhibitions, happenings, and performances outside of the traditional gallery setting. By actively engaging unsuspecting audiences in the public sphere, Intersite seeks to create a supportive and receptive climate to foster the development and innovative presentation of contemporary art.

A Calgary-based initiative, Intersite is a collaborative program presented by six local contemporary art centres:  EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society, M:ST Performative Art Festival, Stride Gallery, The New Gallery, TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary, and Untitled Art Society.

Intersite is currently seeking proposals to produce a site-specific project to be presented in April / May / June of 2018. Through this opportunity, the selected artist, collective and/or curator will be commissioned to create and present a project that activates the cultural landscape of Calgary and considers alternative spaces, engages diverse publics, and challenges traditional forms of contemporary art presentation.

The following materials should be included in your application:

  1. Proposal: Describe your project. Provide complete details of your geographic and material requirements, including any special equipment and technical needs (maximum 1 page)
  2. Budget: Provide a detailed budget of expenses including production, artist fees, travel, and accommodation (if applicable) to a maximum of $3,000.00.
  3. Support: Please include up to ten pieces of additional support material, including digital images, videos, text excerpts, or audio clips alongside a corresponding numbered inventory list detailing all necessary descriptive information. We will review up to a maximum of five minutes of time-based work.
  4. Curriculum vitae: Describe your artistic background and include all relevant contact information (maximum 3 pages)

Submissions are only accepted via email. Please format all written materials as a single .pdf document. Images must be labeled with the applicant’s lastname_firstname and numbered chronologically as .jpg files no larger than 1 MB in size. We accept links to video and audio work hosted online. Emailed applications must be submitted in a single .zip folder containing both documents and images.
