Arnica Artist-Run Centre – Canada

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Arnica Artist-Run Centre
Deadline date: March 1, 2014

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 1, 2014 (postmark)

Arnica Artist-Run Centre welcomes proposals from artists, collectives, or curators for our 2015 / 2016 exhibition season. Arnica aims to present recent, ongoing, or site-specific projects that range across disciplines and media. The programming committee seeks projects that are thoughtful, innovative, and socially engaged.

Operating in Kamloops since 2003, Arnica is currently located in the Old Courthouse Building, one of the city’s most prominent historical landmarks. Arnica has two small exhibition spaces. The main gallery can accommodate work of all media, and measures 238 square feet. The Vault is ideally suited for intimate installations, sound, and video works.
Artists and curators are encouraged to present proposals that occupy one or both of our exhibition spaces. Due to the historic designation of our building, we cannot present projects that propose permanent modifications to the space.

Proposals are selected through a peer review process by Arnica’s Programming Committee. Proposals will be selected based on the following criteria: artistic merit of the proposed project, fit with Arnica’s mandate, and the ability of Arnica to provide appropriate space/support for the project. Arnica is committed to supporting projects through CARFAC exhibition fees. Assistance for travel and shipping is contingent on funding.

Proposals are reviewed twice each year (postmark deadline is March 1st and October 1st), and should include the following:

-10-20 digital images (jpeg format, 1024 x 768 pixels) and/ or 5 minutes of video
-Curriculum Vitae (max. 3 pages)
-Project Proposal (max. 1 page)
-Artist Statement (max. 1 page)
-Image List (including title, media, dimensions and date)
-Additional Support Materials (optional)
-Self Addressed Stamped Envelope (optional)
