Mondo Forma, in partnership with Daniels, is thrilled to announce a call for artists for an exciting new curatorial project within two emerging condo developments located at the bustling heart of Mississauga’s Square One district. We are seeking dynamic, engaging 2D and 3D artworks to enhance the residential experience, reflecting the lively spirit and diversity of the community of Mississauga.

Types of Work Sought: We invite submissions of both 2D and 3D works, including but not limited to: paintings, illustration, digital art, collage, photography, and sculptures. Additionally, we are interested in artists who can create a large-scale vinyl mural for a dedicated wall in the entrance. High-quality prints will also be acquired for certain areas. All selected 2D works will be professionally framed.

Artist Eligibility: This call is open exclusively to artists who are from/based in/have strong connections to the Mississauga region. We strongly encourage applications from equity-seeking artists who identify as BIPOC or LGBTQ, as we are committed to being inclusive and fostering diversity in the arts.

Fee Structure: Artists will be well compensated based on the specifics of their contribution, involving either commissioning an original artwork or purchasing an existing work. Artists will likely be selected for multiple pieces.
