Call for Proposals: 2020 – 2021 Exhibition Season

Main Gallery & Window Gallery

Call for Proposals: Neutral Ground Artist Run Centre (Main Gallery & Window Gallery)
Exhibition season: 2020 – 2021


Neutral Ground:

Located in Treaty 4 Territory, Neutral Ground is a not-for-profit, artist-run-centre that presents contemporary visual and media art. Located in downtown Regina, Saskatchewan we connect audiences to the work of emerging and mid-career artists, and from established artists experimenting with new directions in their practices.

Neutral Ground invites contemporary, professional artists to submit artworks, exhibitions, projects, or performances in any media. Neutral Ground welcomes exhibition proposals from all professional artists regardless of ability, age, culture, ethnicity, citizenship, gender identity, or race. (Please note that proposals from artists based outside of Canada will be considered only as budget and resources allow.)

Neutral Ground pays all artists in accordance with the current CARFAC suggested fee schedule, for Category 1 galleries (thanks to funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board and the City of Regina.)

Proposals for the May 15th deadline will be assessed by jury in consideration for the 2020 – 21 programming season. Proposals will be accepted for both the Main Gallery and the Window Gallery. Neutral Ground presents 4-5 exhibitions per year in our Main Gallery, as well as additional performances and special events. Up to 6 presentations per year are presented in the Window Gallery. (See below for details about both spaces.) Artists are limited to one solo exhibition in a three year period and work that has been shown previously in Regina will typically not be eligible.

We encourage experimentation, risk-taking, and work that pushes the boundaries of artists’ established practices; Neutral Ground is receptive to projects outside of a traditional exhibition format, including but not limited to:

  • Community engagement initiatives;
  • Curatorial proposals;
  • Performance work;
  • Work to be developed and/or created on-site;
  • Projects that are in development/to be developed.
