"Call for Artists: Emerging Professional Canadians Working in Any Media"
2007-03-29 until 2007-05-01
Balcone Art Society (bal.co.ny)
Emerging Canadian artists working in any medium and pursuing
their practice on a professional basis are invited to answer Balcone's
first annual call for submissions. Balcone is a newly incorporated non-profit society for contemporary art based out of Vancouver . The vision is to create a
unique context - outside of traditional frameworks - for the practice,
curation, and exhibition of contemporary art in Vancouver and beyond.
Balcone's mission is to support and promote emerging Canadian artists by
focusing on curation, exhibition, research, criticism, and the
development of a professional practice.
Twelve artists will be selected by Balcone's directors to
participate and collaborate in the first year of programming. Accepted
artists will have a hosted profile and portfolio on Balcone's website,
will participate in a series of workshops and plenary sessions with the
aim of accelerating professional development, and will be available for
a group exhibition of new work from Balcone artists in Vancouver during
September 2007. By mentoring, promoting and publishing these artists and
their works, Balcone's directors aim to provide new territory for the
support and development of emerging artists in Canada.
To be considered for inclusion in our 2007-2008 programs please
submit the following information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the subject line reading "2007-08":
* curriculum vitae, recent, including full contact information and
weblinks to show archives, if applicable
* artist statement, 500 words
* 10-12 examples of work with descriptions, including title, date,
medium. Preference is for weblinks pointing to the artist's own hosted
portfolio, though where this is not possible we shall accept attachments
of low-resolution JPEG's, Quicktime movies or AIFF's to a total of
fifteen megabytes per applicant.
Full time students are not eligible. Only email submissions will
be accepted. For more information, please visit: www.balcone.org
