Special Projects

Special Projects

Hamilton Artists Inc. is seeking dynamic proposals from artists, collectives and curators at various stages of their careers and from across disciplines for its exhibition platforms, which include the Cannon Gallery; James Gallery; Cannon Project Wall; and ArcelorMittal Dofasco Courtyard. The Inc. is mandated to exhibit a range of disciplines and career levels and to exhibit a cross-section of artists from local, regional and national communities. New in 2018, pending funding, we would also like to encourage the submission of “special projects.” Special Projects may include, but are not limited to, independent projects diverse in nature that may happen at the gallery or off-site and might manifest themselves through happenings, print materials, digital platforms, screenings, workshops or other forms of public presentation or intervention. Special Projects are meant to be responsive and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by the programming committee to be mounted subject to available funding. Special projects provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to engage with topical social, political and cultural issues from an ‘undisciplined’ perspective.

Selections criteria are informed by the Inc.’s mandated objectives.  As an artist-run centre, the Inc. is interested in works/projects that have potential impact, push boundaries and engage with critical, conceptual and/or experimental contexts from a diverse range of perspectives and voices. The Inc. supports and encourages submissions showcasing artists and curators most recent endeavors as well as works that incite conversation and promote a range of intersectional narratives. We are committed to providing a platform for risk-taking and creating an inclusive space to explore expanded art practices. We are dedicated to social and cultural diversity in our programming and encourage applications from contemporary artists and curators of diverse communities and backgrounds

Please send the programming committee a brief description of the project (500 words); up to 5 contextual images; 3 pg (max) CV; biography and artist statement (300 words max each) to selections@theinc.ca

For further information please contact programming@theinc.ca
