OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION

DEADLINE: Monday, December 17, 2018

The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair and The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers are excited to announce the return of the Artist Project Career Launcher for an upper year student or recent graduate of the Integrated Media or Sculpture/Installation programs. 

Students and recent alumni are invited to apply for this paid opportunity which provides a professional venue and large public audience for their work. The successful applicant will participate in the 12th annual Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair; held at the Better Living Centre, February 21 to 24, 2019. Dimensions of the project space are roughly 200 - 300 square feet in size.

The Show Director will select a successful applicant and The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers will provide a $2,000 production grant towards the realization of this outstanding opportunity. 

Tips for a successful application: 

  • The space provided at the fair is located among other exhibiting artists, as such it is important to keep the sound levels of the proposed project minimal.
  • The fair hall is lit with overhead lighting and high ceilings. Creating an enclosed dark space would be difficult.
  • The suspension of materials from overhead is not possible in the fair hall.
  • The fair is family friendly. Therefore project content should not include nudity or profanity.
  • A changing and/or staging area will be provided as needed.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • Full contact information (Name, phone, and email)
  • Current CV listing relevant creative experience
  • A link to your online portfolio and/or (if relevant) direct links to recorded portfolio material on a host page (Vimeo, YouTube etc.). Please do not include video files in your application; only links.
  • A brief artist statement that contextualizes your overall practice and communicates your interest in the opportunity and a very clear expression of your project proposal.

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
