Calls for Submissions

 Brucebo Fine Art Summer Residency Scholarship (Gotland, Sweden)

and The William Blair Bruce European Fine Art Travel Scholarship
Submission deadline: January 31st, 2014

Since 1972, the Brucebo Fine Art Scholarship Foundation of Gotland, Sweden (BFAS) has offered a fine art residency/scholarship to a younger, talented Canadian artist, traditionally a painter, providing an inspiring study/work stay in northern Europe on the island of Gotland, located in the Baltic Sea. The BFAS fine art scholarships hark back to the post-impressionist era in Europe. Two young artists, Caroline Benedicks of Sweden and William Blair Bruce of Hamilton, Canada, meet in Paris, marry and after many years on the European continent, settle on historic Gotland Island, a Swedish outpost approximately equidistant between the Swedish mainland and the Baltic state of Latvia. With the untimely death of William in 1906 and that of Caroline in 1935, the estate, in the early 70’s, created the Brucebo Fine Art (Scholarship) Foundation, an organization promoting island-based cultural history and fine art. To commemorate the unique Swedish-Canadian link of Caroline’s and William’s marriage and impressive artistry, two annual fine art scholarships for younger, professional Canadian artists were established : The Brucebo Fine Art Summer Residency Scholarship and The William Blair Bruce European Fine Art Travel Scholarship.

The Brucebo Fine Art Summer Residency Scholarship funds a three month working residency – starting June 1, 2014 – at the Brucebo studio cottage in the Själsö fishing village, 7 km north of of Visby in Gotland, Sweden. The scholarship covers travel expenses Canada – Gotland (return), the use of the studio cottage, a monthly food stipend plus a small equipment grant. Total approximate value : SEK 30.000.url
The William Blair Bruce Travel Scholarship finances a European research sejour, to be undertaken within the next year. The tour is based on an approved Fine Art-related investigative project. Total value: SEK 30.000. As a final part of the ‘Bruce Travel’ the recipient must visit Visby via Stockholm. While in Visby, she/he will give a public lecture sponsored by t

he Foundation on the investigative theme pursued during her/his recent European travel.
Scholarship eligibility: Canadian artists (preference for emerging artists)
Deadline for applications: January 31, 2014. See the application guidelines and download the application form here:

Co-presented with Xpace Cultural Centre
Curated by: Kate Barry

Deadline date: December 15, 2013

Durational performance is a mode of live art where the artist works directly with the medium of time. Over the course of hours, days or longer the performer and the audience can experience a physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional transformation. Durational performance functions to bring the performer and the audience into the moment; time is made palpable and visceral. Artists like Teching Hsieh, Alastair MacLennan, and most famously, Marina Abramovic, demonstrate how durational performance art can use mental and physical endurance to challenge the commoditization of art by offering an experience of art that is ephemeral by nature.

FADO is seeking proposals of durational performance works from emerging artists to be presented in our 2014 edition of the Emerging Artists Series, entitled 11:45PM. Performances should be a minimum of 6-hours and a maximum of 4-days. FADO and Xpace define emerging artists as those who are 2-3 years out of school, are at the beginning stages of their careers, and have not yet had the opportunity for a professional presentation of their work.

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2013.

Submissions should include:
-artistic statement
-brief biographical information
-description of proposed work
-documentation of previous work (maximum of 10 images, and / or 2-3 short documentation videos to a maximum of 5 minutes)

Please note that this series seeks to highlight the work of Toronto and Canadian artists. This is NATIONAL call only. Please direct enquiries to

Please mail submissions to:

Transcending Binaries at Xpace Cultural Centre

Deadline date: December 15, 2013
Open call: Undergraduate and Graduate student artists working with the moving image and digital media.
Curated by: Adrienne Crossman

Xpace/Images Festival is seeking proposals from student artists in the GTA working within digital media art. How does an artist explore the idea of a post-binary world within the confines of digital media – a medium that, at its most fundamental level, operates within a binary language (0′s and 1′s). What does it look like to operate in-between/outside of the “either/or”? Proposals should explore the capacity to transcend these binaries and to consider the occupation/creation of productive spaces where these transgressions may exist. Proposals are encouraged to be innovative and critical and to deal with these ideas both formally and conceptually.

Examples may include, but are not limited to:
– video/installation
– web-based or internet art
– geo-mapping, bio-mapping
– performance video, live performance
– animation
– interactive art
– post-gender, post-binary fantasies
– feminism, queer theory
– identity politics
– post-human, posthumanism
– cybernetics

Electronic submissions only can be sent to:

Include in your submission:
· images of the proposed work (or relevant work) or a link to a website and/or youtube/vimeo – MAXIMUM of 6 images (72dpi @ 768 x 1024)
· description of the proposed work, including physical qualities, spatial and hanging needs, technical requirements, etc (max. 150 words)
· brief artist statement and biography (max. 200 words)

For additional information contact the curator of the project Adrienne Crossman:

Call for Papers

Recombinant Creativity: Temporal Intersections, (de)Historicizing Strategies, and Contemporary Cultural Products
Deadline January 6th

Fredric Jameson spoke of a “dialectical intensification of the autoreferentiality of all modern culture, which tends to turn upon itself and designate its own cultural production as its content.”
Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism

Building upon Fredric Jameson’s potent and pithy insight into the character of contemporary cultural production this conference asks broadly about the role of appropriation and interdisciplinarity. Has the traditionally discipline-based structure of scholarship been challenged or changed by recombinant forms and processes of critical engagement?

The Contemporary Art, New Media and Design Histories program at OCAD University invites papers that acknowledge the place and implication of Jameson’s ideas of autoreferentiality or the practices of assemblage, bricolage, collage, remixing, sampling, borrowing, mashups, hybridity, and the role of technology as strategies for creativity.

Papers will be accepted from graduate students of all levels and disciplines, and should be traditional presentations 15- 20 minutes in length. While an emphasis will be placed on these discourses in art and visual culture, we also welcome cross-disciplinary interpretations of the theme. Topics for papers may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Global and local collages in design practice
  • Re-imagining indigenous culture through digital dialogues
  • Hip hop in contemporary Indigenous cultures.
  • Biopolitics and subversive, activist strategies
  • Splicing and the cultures of bricolage in contemporary society
  • Appropriation as methodology
  • Processes of othering and identity-formation
  • Appropriation as a sign of cultural bankruptcy(de)
  • Historicizing the so-called Western canon in art history
  • Recombinant culture as resistance and strategies of dissent


Please send a 250-word abstract of your paper along with a working title, keywords, curriculum vitae, and contact information to

The symposium will be held 6-7 March, 2014 at OCAD University, Toronto, Canada.

Deadline for submission: 6 January, 2014.

Successful participants will be notified: by 14 January, 2014.

Vector Game + Art Convergence Festival, Toronto – Open Call for Artworks

Deadline: January 1, 2014

Now in its second year, the Vector Game + Art Convergence Festival ( is a five-day series of game art exhibitions, screenings, performances, workshops, and panels centred around games as tools and inspiration for contemporary art making. Until January 1, 2014, Team Vector invites submissions to its festival programming. Vector 2014 will take place from February 19 to 23, 2014, in Toronto, Canada.

Game art is a diverse field characterized by a wide variety of creative practices. Accordingly, this open call invites submissions from artists working in many different contexts and media. For Vector 2014, we are seeking works that critically address the politics, technologies, representations, and aesthetics of video games. Artists at all stages of their creative careers – from emerging to established – are encouraged to submit their work.

Works For Exhibition
Works of all media will be considered for inclusion in an exhibition surveying a wide spectrum of practices within game art. We seek video installations, games, interactive works of new media, print media, sculpture, textile, and more. In particular, we are looking for works that push beyond simple expressions of fandom, and which explore the convergence of game-making and media art to challenge assumptions about gaming writ large. Formal investigations of the video game medium are as welcome as works that push the broader concept of ‘games’ into the experimental.

Works for Film/Video/Machinima Screenings
For this program, we are looking for work that experiments with the concept of machinima to produce engaging films or videos. Machinima is a moving image art form that involves repurposing computer graphics from video games in the creation of new cinematic works. Although early machinima was gamer-oriented, it has since been used to create a new form of video art that combines hacker aesthetics with found footage practices. Machinima has also been used by artists to critique and comment upon video game culture, alienation in contemporary culture, death, and many other themes.
The submitted work should make use of videos game footage or video game engines in some capacity. Narrative as well as experimental non-narrative work will be considered, but the narrative work should push the boundaries of traditional/classical storytelling in some capacity. Due to programming restrictions we are looking for work under 20 minutes; however, please contact us if you have made a longer work and and feel that it fits our mandate.

For full submission guidelines, please visit:

Notifications of Acceptance will be issued by January 15, 2014.

Proof Gallery 44’s

Deadline December 6th

Proof is Gallery 44’s annual exhibition of photo-based work by Canadian emerging artists reflecting a range of current concerns and practices in contemporary photography from across the country. Proof is often one of the first exhibitions in a professional context for an emerging artist as was the case for artists such as Karin Bubas, Janieta Eyre, Isabelle Hayeur, Germaine Koh, Nicholas Pye, Althea Thauberger, and Andrew Wright.

In celebration of WorldPride 2014, which will be hosted by Toronto from June 20 – 29, 2014, Proof 21 will focus on LGBTTIQQ2SA* culture, community and discourse. In keeping with WorldPride 2014 Toronto’s mission, Proof 21will also provide a platform for highlighting human rights issues and activism.

The call is open to artists/projects that explore (including but not limited to): identity, gender and sexual politics and constructs; the politics of representation; the challenging of gender binaries; subversion of heteronorms; questioning of widely held social codes.

Consistent with our overall programming objectives, this exhibition will feature the work of artists who are innovative in their use of the medium and approach to subject matter.

Exhibition dates: June 20 – July 26, 2014
KAPSULA Magazine is a digital publication dedicated to experimental and evaluative art criticism


December 6th

The deadline for KAPSULA’s current call for submissions is fast approaching. In January KAPSULA will begin exploring “Bad History” in contemporary art.

Exploring history in an entirely objective manner is, frankly, impossible. Artists engaging with the past remain firmly planted in the present, with their biases and blind spots inescapable. But while the impossibility of purging subjectivity has formed an ongoing problem for some, certain artists have used these slippery slopes as sources of inspiration and alterity, embracing what might otherwise be maligned as “bad history.” We want to discuss art that plays with anachronism, historical revision, historical fictions and other kinds of “Bad History.” As always, KAPSULA welcomes experimental pieces; these can include works of fictocriticism, poetry, pictorial essays and so on.

For full submission guidelines, visit:
Submission deadline (for final papers and tentative proposals): December 6, 2013.


KAPSULA’s next monthly release will be delivered to subscribers on Monday, November 18th. This release features two experimental writing projects: Penny Leong’s poetic visual essay “Thy Lovely Stain,” and Lindsay LeBlanc’s reworking of theorist Roland Barthes’ essay “From Work to Text,” and an interview with artist Zeesy Powers.


KAPSULA Magazine is always on the look for exhibition/book/article reviews and cover images.


KAPSULA releases reviews as received. This means that our call for exhibition/book/article review submissions is ongoing, with no deadlines! This will give you the opportunity to write about a current show or topic to your choice that you feel passionate about.

Since there are no set themes, the topic you choose to write on is entirely up to you. Our only requirement is that you make it spicy and intelligent.

For review submissions guidelines, please visit our website at:


Great news for artists.

Due to an overwhelming amount of artwork submissions, the KAPSULA team found it appropriate to incorporate contemporary artists and their work to the monthly feature publications. We are looking for one new cover image each month. This image should thematically relate to the current call for feature articles that is posted on our official website. The topic is completely open to your conceptual and visual interpretation.

The call for image submissions is ongoing.

ONE  – D at Trinity Square Video 401 Richmond Street

November 28th Reception at 7 Perfomance at 8


Trinity Square Video is pleased to announce the presentation of ONE-D, the first of TSV’s Themed Commission trilogy, ONE-D, TWO-D, THREE-D. This first of the commissioning series asked artists to expand the single channel experience into one that incorporates performance, and the results are in! Come join us for the public presentation of this exciting new work.

ONE-D presents work that challenges the conventions of spectatorship, the viewing space and the audience. Working at the intersection of performance and video, ONE-D explores a participatory and performative cinema beyond the projected image. These five artists use the body to expand the limits of video, body and gesture. They blur the boundary between image and presence, exploring acts of doubling that trouble the polemics of memory, loss, absence and otherness.

Participating Artists:

Beau Coleman
Renée Lear
Irene Loughlin
Alexis Mitchell
Natalie Wood

Performances and opening reception:
November 28th, 2013
Reception at 7:00
Performances at 8:00

Exhibition dates:
November 28th – December 18th



Baby Blue By Chandra Melting Tallow

At Whippersnapper Gallery 549b Dundas Street West

November 28th Closing Reception and Performance at 7


Baby Blue explores the complexities and chaos of dissociation and mental states symptomatic of psychosis. The work touches on these experiences as being convoluted by hierarchies of knowledge in their interpretation: existing as a spiritual phenomenon informed by the artists cultural background and a purely biochemical malfunction asserted through the dominant western lens. The effects of trauma and the draw of mysticism are both referenced as a recurring attempt at reconciling insight into what is perceived as contributing or conflicting elements to these uninvited states of consciousness.

Chandra Melting Tallow is a multi-disciplinary artist and musician of Blackfoot and mixed ancestry from the Siksika Nation. She works primarily in video, installation and performance. Her work has been exhibited in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Victoria and Istanbul.


Didier Courbot at Susan Hobbs Gallery 137 Tecumseth Street

November 28, 2013 Opening Reception 7 – 9
For this exhibition, Courbot presents a series of new sculptural works as a concurrent extension of his needs (1999-present) series. In needs, Courbot documents his improvements to existing public infrastructure as unprecedented acts of civic duty. His actions, deliberately earnest and eccentric, pit against Situationist tactics, from nailing a bird house to a street lamp at a busy Paris intersection to painting a chess board on a concrete embankment along the Seine. Courbot’s new works distill the ethos of the needs works into discrete, furniture-like objects. Among them, a book stand, a wall hook, and a fruit bowl refer formally and conceptually to previous needs and demonstrate his ongoing maintenance of previous public gestures but as proposals for domestic space.

In addition, a selection of new tabletop sculptures and wearable objects demonstrate his improvisational approaches to material and acute sense of aesthetics. Each work is an intimate formal study of a scrap of discarded material from his studio, either poised on custom brass stands or plated in gold.


Also on Tecumseth


Martin Bennett and Jaan Polidass both have shows opening at Birch Contemporary 129 Tecumseth Street November 28th 5 – 8


Sasha Pierce: Tessellations

At Jessica Bradley 74 Miller Street

November 28th 630 to 830

28 Nov — 21 Dec 2013
Artist in attendance

Jessica Bradley Gallery is pleased to present Tessellations, Sasha Pierce’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The show will comprise a suite of seven astonishingly intricate new paintings. With a highly ingenious approach to abstract painting, Pierce meticulously lays multi-coloured lines of oil paint onto linen in dense, thread-like patterns. Using mathematical models for geometrical form as the starting point of her kaleidoscopic compositions, Pierce translates precise diagrams into tangible form. In her hands paint is akin to sculptural material, her paintings easily mistaken for textiles or tapestries. Significantly however, Pierce succeeds in intensely activating both physical presence and optical perception. Shapes twist and refract. Variegated lines waver, bend and warp as we experience anew the parameters of visual perception. Surface pattern recedes in favour of individual form and colour; yet overall geometry persists, and we recognize the impossibility of perceiving all patterns at once.


Bogdan Luca – Accretion

At Neubacher Shor 5 Brock Avenue

 28 November 2013 – 21 December 2013


Accretion is a term describing the growth of a massive object by gravitationally attracting more matter.

In the context of this exhibition, Accretion is about time as material for creating images. A form of memento mori, this work connects a mundane experience with something about the imagined infinite. Tangible experiences of daily life meet with the sense of a sublime realm, larger than life and consciousness.

“As a painter, I have the sensation that images (regardless of medium) remain always removed, somehow distant. Perhaps the historic and ritualized use of images capitalized on this, their greatest potential: to transport one to an alternative realm outside of physical and embodied experience.

Within the parameters of Accretion, my intention is to bridge the transcendent quality of images with a sense of physical presence relative to a particular here and now. This body of work comprises drawings on paper, photographic work and a site specific drawing.
The drawings are melodramatic, romantic clichés of the natural and cosmic sublime, expressed through the most basic material means of drawing. They are images that can transport us elsewhere.

A Noble Line By Sonny Assu at Oakville Galleries

Sunday December 1st

Please join Oakville Galleries to celebrate our winter exhibition openings on Sunday 1 December from 2:30 pm–3:30 pm at Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square, followed by a reception at Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens from 3:30 pm–5:00 pm.

Need a ride to Oakville? Get on the ARTbus (details below).


1 December 2013 – 16 February 2014
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens

Appearing and disappearing depending on one’s vantage point, the horizon line—the place where the sky meets land or sea—has effectively instilled fear, wonder and sublime contemplation throughout the ages. This urge to know beyond the immediately conceivable—to grapple with the limits of vision, life and knowledge—continues to be powerful, making contemporary renditions of the horizon as compelling as ever.
