Art & Anarchy 2017: Call for proposals

Art+Anarchy 2017
Deadline : April 9, 2017, before 5pm.

The Art + Anarchy exhibit returns for its 10th year within the Festival of Anarchy! This year, we prioritize our accessibility mandate and have moved the exhibit in a more accessible space : the George Vanier Cultural Centre (CCGV).

This year, we are widening our horizons! The exhibit will be on display for the entire month of May, from the 1st to the 31st 2017. Our first priority is to display works of art that deal with issues relating to anarchism. It is an occasion to assemble and celebrate the diversity of artistic and aesthetic practices from our communities.

The CCGV Gallery has limited wall space. So our call focuses especially on 3D works (sculptures and installations.) Also, within the Month of Art and Anarchy, we want to host events, workshops, and performances, so we also welcome submissions of this nature.

We also encourage workshop proposals to take place in the Gallery space during the month of May. Contact us by e-mail to make a proposal.

If you have any questions, you can write to us at montrealanarchistbookfair@gmail.com

You can consult Art & Anarchy exhibitions from 2015 HERE, 2014 HERE, 2013 HERE, 2012 HERE, 2011 HERE, and from 2010 HERE.
