Art & Anarchy: Call for Proposals

The deadline for Art & Anarchy submissions for this year’s Montreal Anarchist Bookfair is April 3, 2015, before 11pm.

Art & Anarchy brings together the creations of dozens of anarchist-inspired artists and organizers. In previous years, exhibitions have included sculptures, paintings, posters, banners, drawings, and other multi-media forms.

Art & Anarchy is displayed over the two days of the Montreal Anarchst Bookfair at the CEDA, an adult education centre in Montreal’s southwest whose walls, hallways and stairwells will be transformed into an exhibition of our collective creativity and resistance.

You can consult Art & Anarchy exhibitions from 2014 HERE, 2013 HERE, 2012 HERE, 2011 HERE, and from 2010 HERE.
