ATTENTION: ARTISTS WORKING IN TEXTILE, FIBRE MEDIUMS

Gladstone Hotel Presents

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Hard Twist 12 – Yarn

August 23 to Early January 2017
Submission Deadline: April 30, 2017

Juror’s Selections to be Announced May 26, 2017


HARD TWIST 12 – Yarn, the twelfth annual edition of the Gladstone Hotel’s signature show of textile-based art, invites artists to explore the art of narrative through textile.

Yarn me a yarn, spin me a tale, string me along – tell me a story! Whether speaking of the solid stuff of truth or of fabricating a tissue of lies, it’s hard to tell a story without the textile words and imagery that weave their way through the fabric of language and lore.

Hard Twist 12 – Yarn challenges artists to spin a tale with thread, but without words.
There are only three criteria; work must:

  • be textile or fibre related
  • explore or express ideas connected to this year’s theme
  • be designed to hang on a wall or be lightly suspended from a ceiling – we are unable to accept free standing work due to the nature of the exhibition space


Hard Twist has become an important annual event within the Canadian textile art community as well as being a signature event for the Gladstone.

HARD TWIST 12 JURORS:

Ketzia Kobrah – Textile Artist and previous Hard Twist participant
Natalia Nekrassova – Curator, Collections and Research, Textile Museum of Canada
Erin Stump – Gallery Owner, ESP | Erin Stump Projects
Helena Frei and Chris Mitchell – Hard Twist curators
Lukus Toane – Director of Exhibitions, Gladstone Hotel (ex-officio)


Hard Twist Hanging/Installation – Physical Criteria:

  • All pieces must be able to be hung/installed securely – the gallery space is part of a fully functioning hotel
  • The hotel’s cable-and-hook security mounting system can accommodate most work that is designed to be wall-hung.
  • Artists whose work is accepted for the show must follow the exhibition guidelines of the Hotel as it it is a heritage space.


Hard Twist Entry checklist:

ADMIN FEE: $100 + HST = $113 (to be paid to hotel only on acceptance)
