17th Annual Juried Exhibition: Call for Submissions

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Modern Fuel's 17th Annual Juried Members' Exhibition will be presented at Modern Fuel from 27 June – 8 August 2015.  Submission Deadline: 1 June, 2015. 

Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre invites artists to submit works produced in visual and time-based disciplines such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, video, installation, and sound for our annual juried members’ exhibition. We also welcome proposals for performances, interventions and live works for presentation at the opening reception, or according to a schedule throughout the run of the exhibition. The curatorial premise for this group exhibition is to reflect the wide-ranging practices of artists in the region and to provide a forum in which to compare patterns emerging in those practices from one year to the next. Note: According to our organizational mandate, Modern Fuel pays professional fees to all exhibiting artists.

This year’s guest curator will be Fynn Leitch, curator of the Art Gallery of Peterborough 
Fynn Leitch has an MA in Visual Culture from Queen's University (2006) where her work focussed at the intersection of craft and protest. From 2011 - 2014 she led the direction of ARTSPACE, including the development of an onsite Media Lab, and has renewed the centre's commitment to critical writing and publishing. She also works as an advocate for the arts regionally and provincially.

(The works must not have been previously shown in Modern Fuel’s Main Gallery or its State of Flux Gallery). Include an image list (with titles, dimensions, dates, and media). Please submit  images of the work formatted to the following specifications: JPEG files only. Size must be 1024 pixels wide by 768 pixels high, and a 1 MB maximum.
