OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION

The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair and The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers are excited to announce the return of the Artist Project Career Launcher for an upper year OCAD U student or recent graduate with a performance-based practice (such as, but not limited to, Integrated Media, Digital Futures or Sculpture/Installation). 

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 13th annual Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair; held at the Better Living Centre, February 20 to 23, 2020. Dimensions of the project space are roughly 200 square feet in size. 

The Show Director will select a successful applicant and The Centre for Emerging Artists & 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. 

QUALIFICATIONS 

  • Must be an OCAD U student or recent graduate (from 2018 and 2019)
  • A priority will be given to performance-based proposals, over more static sculptural installations. 
  • A consideration of the successful application tips mentioned above. 

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
