Call for Submissions: 2025 Exhibition Proposals at Artspace

Performance Process by Brad Brackenridge, 2023

Open Call for 2025 Exhibition Proposals
Artspace, Peterborough

Submission Deadline: December 31, 2023

Artspace invites emerging, mid-career, and senior artists whose works are alternative, experimental and/or critically engaged to submit proposals for the centre’s 2025 exhibitions programming. Artspace invites proposals from not only individual artists, but artist collectives, and interested guest curators.

In keeping with our commitments to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, we encourage exhibition proposals from artists and curators from groups that have been historically underrepresented in Artspace’s programming, such as BIPOC, migrant, 2SLGBTQIA+, disabled and/or low income artists.

As one of Canada’s first artist-run centers, now in its 50th year, Artspace remains a vital hub for artists still today. We are dedicated to presenting new work from contemporary artists working in a variety of disciplines. The centre strives to present art that reflects and promotes the diversity of disciplines and media that shape contemporary art practices. Learn more about Artspace.

What Fools These Mortals Be (The Circle Project) curated by Amy Siegal, 2023

Artspace is seeking 2025 exhibition proposals for programming in Galleries 1 and 2. In preparing your proposal please consult Artspace’s floorplan. Please note, Artspace will also consider offsite projects relevant to the centre’s mandate.

Artspace provides curatorial support, installation assistance, insurance, promotion, and documentation of exhibitions, and when budgets allow, commission critical essays to accompany selected projects. Artspace is committed to paying artists and copyright fees according to the guidelines established by CAR/FAC (Canadian Artists’ Representation/Les Fronts des Artistes Canadiens).

Please note, all proposals are required to be made using Artspace’s online submission form. Mailed submissions will not be accepted.
