Artcite Inc. is situated in a large storefront space located in downtown Windsor, Ontario, a border city that benefits from cross cultural exchange with Detroit, Michigan. We feature new and experimental art production in all media and welcome submissions from local, regional, national, and international artists for recent or proposed new work, as well as curatorial proposals from artists, curators, and collectives. We pay artists based on CARFAC fee standards.
Artists may be approved for a solo exhibition, invited to participate in a two-person or group exhibition, or asked to consider re-submitting works shown but not proposed. Off-site exhibition areas (indoor or outdoor) may be arranged for mounting special projects, performances, and site-specific works. If you are an artist interested in proposing a workshop or community based program, you may also use this application to do so. Please outline this specification within your submission.
Artcite’s programming decisions are made by a Programming Committee, which is comprised of community organizers and artists in the region who are invited and compensated in accordance with the CARFAC fee schedule. Submissions are reviewed annually. Only complete submissions are considered.
We currently have one annual submission deadline of October 15. Our program schedule is usually set 12–24 months in advance.
We welcome applications from emerging artists and those from racial and cultural backgrounds who have been historically marginalized and underrepresented in Turtle Island/so-called Canada. We encourage applications from Black, Indigenous, and 2SLGBTQI+ artists, as well as artists living with disabilities.
We acknowledge there are barriers of access embedded in a Call for Submissions such as this, and we welcome hopeful applicants to contact our Programming Coordinator, Stephen Mueller, who will work with artists to craft their application. You can contact him at email@example.com.
