Artist Project 2019

DEADLINE
Monday, December 17, 2019 at 12 pm (EST)
This opportunity is open to current SCIN/INTM students and grads.

OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION
The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair and The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers are excited to announce the return of the Artist Project Career Launcher for an upper year student or recent graduate of the Integrated Media or Sculpture/Installation programs.

Students and recent alumni are invited to apply for this paid opportunity which provides a professional venue and large public audience for their work. The successful applicant will participate in the 12th annual Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair; held at the Better Living Centre, February 21 to 24, 2019. Dimensions of the project space are roughly 200 – 300 square feet in size.

The Show Director will select a successful applicant and The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers will provide a $2,000 production grant towards the realization of this outstanding opportunity.

Tips for a successful application:

The space provided at the fair is located among other exhibiting artists, as such it is important to keep the sound levels of the proposed project minimal.
The fair hall is lit with overhead lighting and high ceilings. Creating an enclosed dark space would be difficult.
The suspension of materials from overhead is not possible in the fair hall.
The fair is family friendly. Therefore project content should not include nudity or profanity.
A changing and/or staging area will be provided as needed.

QUALIFICATIONS
Must be an upper-year student or recent graduate of the Integrated Media or Sculpture/Installation programs (from 2017 and 2018)
A priority will be given to performance-based proposals, over more static sculptural installations.
A consideration of the successful application tips mentioned above.
