2020 Art Gallery of Alberta Biennial Call for Submissions

Date: Mar 5, 2019

Deadline: Apr 15, 2019 - 11:45 pm

For 2020, the Art Gallery of Alberta will be expanding the concept of its Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art beyond provincial borders. This call is open to artists physically or otherwise within, from, or in proximity to the borders of Alberta, Treaty 4, Treaty 6, Treaty 7, Treaty 8 and Treaty 10.

A border can draw a distinction; define an area; define a practice; define a state of mind. A border is a separation between two realms but it’s also the point where they meet. Borders can be metaphysical, geopolitical, geographical, arbitrary, fluid and calcified.

Artists are encouraged to think of borders in the largest possible sense.

Submissions will be accepted no later than Monday, April 15.

More detail, including a submission guideline PDF, can be found on our website.
