Local Calls For Submission

Call for Submission:

Deadline: May 1, 2007.

ALLEYJAUNT is Toronto's alternative, urban, community arts event. Through the transformation of garages and alleys into exhibition spaces, ALLEYJAUNT gives exposure to local artists, encourages public interaction with art, integrates contemporary art into public space, and reaches out to a diverse community of all ages within the Trinity Bellwoods Park neighbourhood setting.

ALLEYJAUNT invites artists and collectives to submit proposals for 2007. We are soliciting proposals for garage exhibitions as well as proposals for installations, performances and other works that animate the park and alleyway spaces. ALLEYJAUNT supports experimentation and collaboration within contemporary art, and we are open to diverse media and practices.

We are seeking projects that touch upon one or several of these criteria:
  • Projects designed for a specific site (garage, alley, park, etc.)
  • Projects that connect the diverse community that uses the garage and alley spaces
  • Projects that provide critical reflection on the nature of urban experience
  • Artistic interventions that captures the flux, chance and accident of everyday life.

Proposals will be evaluated according to the critical merit of the overall theme/concept, the adherence to ALLEYJAUNT'S mandate, and the feasibility of the project
The 5th annual ALLEYJAUNT will be held on August 11 & 12, 2007

Call for Submission:
BIG little fibre FIBRE
at the Gladstone Hotel

The Gladstone Hotel
invites artists working in fibre-related media to submit proposals for installations and wall-hung works for the Gladstone's second annual show of textile-based art.

BIG little fibre FIBRE, will look at assumptions about fibre and size, and fibre and applications. Artists are invited to explore and explode the assumptions and expectations that come with the medium and to submit works at the extremes of size and format - the very large and the very small from the outer reaches of the realm of fibre.

BIG little fibre FIBRE will run from Thursday October 11 2007 to Sunday November 25 2007. The wall-hung works will be shown on the third and fourth floors of the hotel for the full run of the show, and, to launch the show with a bang, the second floor will be dedicated to extreme scale installations for the first four days - 11 to 14 October 2007.
