Toronto Sculpture Garden: Winter 2021
Call for Proposals
Deadline for proposals: October 26, 2020
Programming Dates: February 1 – April 30, 2021

The 2021 Sculpture Garden projects will be part of ArtworxTO, the City’s year-long celebration of public art. To launch the year’s programming, the City of Toronto is inviting proposals from Toronto-based curatorial collectives, curators and arts organisations interested in programming the TSG from February to April, 2021.

As it will not be possible to install foundations, proposals are not expected to be primarily sculptural. This is an opportunity for performance- and event-based artworks (including music and other audio works, film and video projection, and ephemeral installations) which could also include a parallel online component. While the overall program should be original, existing works may be included.

All those interested in applying must email publicartcompetitions@toronto.ca for complete proposal and submission requirements.

The Toronto Sculpture Garden is a partially accessible site.

ArtworxTO
ArtworxTO seeks to explore the unique role that art plays in a vibrant city. Considered the public launch of the City’s new 10-year Public Art Strategy 2020-2030, ArtworxTO marks a renewed vision and commitment to public art throughout Toronto. Toronto’s Year of Public Art 2021 will animate all corners of the city with innovative publicly accessible art projects, installations, and programming throughout the year. ArtworxTO will leave an enduring legacy through significant commissions, new programs and a new digital platform which will become building blocks for the future, enabling meaningful engagement and interaction between artists, art and the public. Central to the legacy will be a commitment to increased support to artists working in the public realm and to recognize the collective contributions of artists whose significant public works have made Toronto a global leader in public art. ArtworxTO is committed to providing opportunities for artists and audiences that have been marginalized in the traditional public art landscape. This includes commitments to Indigenous placemaking and platforms for BIPOC artists, curators and audiences.
