Call for Submissions

The Alternator accepts exhibition proposals from artists and curators. Selections are based on:

  • Compatibility with the Alternator’s mandate
  • Quality of the proposal
  • Quality of work submitted by the artist
  • Availability of space

SUBMISSIONS ARE REVIEWED ON AN ONGOING BASIS. CAR/FAC fees are paid. Submissions from both individual artists and groups will be considered with an emphasis on an experimental approach.

In 2017/2018 the Alternator is inviting exhibiting artists to create an extension of their work for public space. Please include a short proposal for this secondary component along with your submission. For example this might include a banner, posters, public performance or outdoor projection. A separate presentation fee will be paid.

The Alternator has limited funds available to assist with exhibition production. If you require OAAA assistance with production expenses, please include a detailed description and budget of production expenses as part of your programming submission as well as expected installation schedule/timeline.

Please include all of the following when submitting your proposal:

  • A brief description (maximum 300 words) clearly outlining the exhibition you are proposing
  • Artist statement – maximum 500 words
  • Detailed description and budget of production expenses (if required) including installation schedule.
  • Curriculum vitae
  • 15-20 images with name and title. Video artists may submit a video no longer than 5 minutes
  • Image list detailing medium and size
  • Self addressed, sufficiently stamped envelope (for return only)

Please submit images in jpeg format. Label jpg images with number and title, for example: 01_title.jpg, 02_title.jpg etc. Jpg images must be 72 dpi, maximum 1024 x 768 pixels. 500 KB (0.5MB). Applications submitted by e-mail are not accepted.
