Artcite Inc., an artist-run centre for the contemporary arts, is situated in a large storefront space located in downtown Windsor, ON, 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 artists for recent or proposed new work, digital programs, as well as, curatorial proposals from artists, curators and collectives. Off-site exhibition areas (indoor or outdoor) may also be arranged for mounting special projects, performances and site-specific works.
While no indication of future programming is implied, we recommend that applicants view our exhibition archive that provides an overview of past programming at Artcite. We encourage submissions that make full use of the highly visible gallery space to engage the public.
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. Submission review meetings are scheduled about one to two months after the deadlines, with re-scheduling as needed to accommodate the committee. Only complete submissions are considered.
An artist can be approved for a solo show, a dual show, or asked to consider re-submitting works shown but not proposed, considered for future inclusion in a group show or rejected. Successful candidates for solo and dual shows are notified within two weeks of a meeting, while requests to resubmit, group show consideration and rejection notices may take longer.
This call for submissions will close by the end of day, April 15th 2021.
Artcite Inc. welcomes applications from emerging artists, and those from racial and cultural backgrounds who have been historically historically marginalized and underrepresented in Turtle Island/so-called Canada. We encourage applications from Black-led and Indigenous-led projects, LGBTQIA+ artists, and artists living with disabilities.
We acknowledge that there are barriers of access embedded in Calls for Submissions such as these, and we welcome hopeful applicants to contact our Programming Coordinator Imogen Clendinning, who will work with artists to craft their application. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
