CALLS FOR SUBMISSION

Call for Exhibition Proposals: Installation

Theme: Immersion

Installation week: July 23 - 26

Duration of exhibition: July 30 - September 10, 2024

Deadline to apply: Monday, March 11, 2024 - 11:59pm (AST)

Struts Gallery is seeking proposals for an exhibition/installation that fully considers and transforms our gallery space. Located in a 120-year-old building worn by time, our gallery is well used and versatile, with white walls, a weathered ceiling, and a painted grey tile floor. The space is functional but not precious. It offers a unique layout with vast potential for physical, psychic, or conceptual alteration. We invite proposals from artists and artist collectives based in the Atlantic region to create an immersive environment in our space. Successful applicants will spend the week of July 23-26 installing the work while living in our artist accommodations above the gallery.

We’re interested in ambitious projects that change our visitors’ perception of the gallery, envelope the viewer, and/or create opportunity for meaning and dialogue to emerge. We are open to new or previously exhibited work from a broad spectrum of mediums and approaches. Works that incorporate analog or digital video, sound, performative elements, ritual, interactivity, sculpture, sensorial stimulation, architectural intervention, or contemplative ambiance will all be considered. For those who are interested, Struts Gallery has an extensive collection of media arts equipment available for artists’ use.

 

Struts will provide:

  • Artist fee according to CARFAC exhibition rate

  • Per diems for a 4 day install

  • Accommodations above the gallery

  • Travel expenses

  • Transportation expenses

  • Use of our media arts equipment

  • Installation assistance

  • Promotion and documentation of the exhibition

 

Who can apply?

Artists and Artist Collectives at all career stages living In the Atlantic region. Struts is dedicated to presenting work from contemporary artists working in a variety of disciplines. We venture to present art that reflects the diversity of disciplines and media that shape contemporary art practices. Proposals from artists whose works are alternative, experimental and/or critically engaged are encouraged. We welcome proposals from artists from groups that have historically been underrepresented in the gallery, including Indigenous people, Black people, people of color, 2SLGBTQIA+.

 

In preparing your submission, please consult Struts floor plan. Proposals can be tailored to either or both gallery space 1 and 2.

Struts Gallery is seeking short-term artist projects that run adjacent to everyone’s favourite music festival - Sappyfest – taking place this year August 2 - 4, 2024.

Artist and artist collectives are welcome to propose projects that will transform different areas of Sackville or Struts Gallery facilities into memorable, creative spaces. We are interested in ongoing, ambient projects that invite festival goers to engage with and participate in the art in some capacity. We encourage projects that animate zones, create respite from the festival’s noise, and/or provide catalysts for connection and engagement. We welcome use of our extensive media arts equipment holdings in the creation and/or execution of the project. Projects that occur outdoors are encouraged!

Eligible mediums include offsite installations, sound art, relational aesthetics, screenings/projections, and portable sculpture.

Note well:

•  Time based projects should run for a hefty portion of the festival and should not require a dedicated audience or performance time.

•  Sculptural works should be durable and not require monitoring or surveillance.

Struts will provide:

  • Artist fees in accordance to the 2024 CARFAC Fee Schedule for festival exhibition or performance

  • Per diems
