Call for Submissions for 2019-2020

DEADLINE : August 7, 2018, 11:59 EST


articule launches its call for proposals for the next two years and invites local, national and international artists, artists’ collectives, art institutions and curators interested in establishing a dialogue with contemporary art and the centre to submit an exhibition or research project of diverse nature for the programming years 2019-20. We are interested in artistic ideas and projects that are concerned with the daily challenges of our society, particularly in these “troubled times”. We accept proposals for exhibitions, projects and research of diverse nature taking place at the gallery or online.

As an artist-run centre dedicated to the presentation of a wide range of practices in contemporary art and who supports experimentation and social engagement, articule considers emerging artists, as well as those who have established important precedents and continue to commit themselves to the ideals of experimentation and risk-taking. We particularly encourage Indigenous artists and artists of colour to submit a proposal, as well as self-identifying trans and genderfluid artists.


Issues and themes might include, but are not limited to:

  • -Transient identities
  • -Correspondence as a political act
  • -Survival strategies
  • -Self-protection
  • -Self-care
  • -Borders un/safety
  • -Reclaiming cultures and spaces etc

Before sending your submission, we invite you to visit our website to get more information on the different types of programming articule presents, our mandate and the gallery measurements. articule pays artist fees according to CARFAC guidelines.

Special Projects



For over ten years, articule has been presenting public interventions, live art projects, happenings, new artistic practices, as well as public talks, workshops, video/film screenings, etc. through its special projects programming. We invite artists and people working in other fields to question with us what is undisciplinarity today. How, by example, do we draw the line between art and community or activist projects, between aesthetic, political, scientific, or philosophical research? How are these limits transgressed? Projects can happen at the gallery, online or off site. We are also open to collaborations with other organisations. In order to respond quickly to proposed initiatives, the committee will meet regularly throughout the year to review submissions.

Support by articule for special projects can take many forms: promotional and logistic support, access to the center’s equipment, administrative infrastructure, venue, and financial support. People with an idea they would like to discuss and develop further with the committee are also invited to do so.
