The Courvoisier Collective is seeking artwork submissions to be displayed on billboards and on PATH posters around the City of Toronto. In addition, runner-up submissions will be showcased in an exhibition at Gallery 1313, located at 1313 Queen Street West, from August 10 – September 4, 2011. The billboard winners will be selected by a jury of art curators and those pieces shown at the gallery will be chosen on the basis of jury votes and online votes.
Artists are asked to explore the theme of ‘Renewal’ in relation to the revolutionary role of art. The theme can be addressed in two contexts: 1) with respect to art’s capacity to revolutionize its own content and form, and/or 2) art’s potential to challenge the status quo.
Submitted artwork can use media such as photography, painting, mixed media, and printmaking. Submissions are to be sent through www.courvoisiercollective.com and require the inclusion of one (1) image in digital JPG, GIF, TIF, PNG format of the artwork, a title for the submission, an artist statement, dimensions, medium and all contact information indicated on the submission page.
Billboard/Path posters call July 11, 2011
