Call for submissions: Exhibit P: Photography and Media Art from the Prairies


Exhibit P: Photography and Media Art from the Prairies

The western interior is not simply W.O. Mitchell’s “basic requirements of land and sky,” the kettle lakes and bluffs of Gabrielle Roy’s water-hen country, or the remote forests and mountains of Ralph Connor’s Mounted Police – it is all three and more. – Gerald Friesen

Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is seeking submissions from photo, film, video and digital artists at all stages of their careers for feature coverage in an upcoming issue of Prefix Photo magazine. To be considered for inclusion, an artist must be a current resident of Manitoba, Saskatchewan or Alberta, or a native of the Canadian Prairies residing elsewhere. Consideration will also be given to any artist whose work explicitly addresses the subject of the Prairies.

Submissions should consist of visual documentation of the work, an artist’s statement or written description of the work, and a curriculum vitae or biography of the artist. Visual documentation may include up to twenty images, preferably submitted as digital files according to the specifications below or, alternatively, as transparencies, work prints or laser prints. Film, video or digital work may be submitted on DVD only, with a selection of related stills. All images must be accompanied by a numbered list including the artist’s name, title, year, medium and dimensions. Submissions may be made by e-mail or by mail. Support materials will not be returned unless accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. Please do not submit original artwork

With respect to the submission of digital images, please submit files in RGB format at a maximum of 72 dpi, 1024 x 768 pixels and 500K. Please identify each digital image by number (according to your image list) and by name.

The deadline for submissions is July 28, 2011.

Please send submissions to:

Jennifer Givogue, Production Manager
Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art
401 Richmond Street West, Suite 124
Toronto, Ontario M5V 3A8
E jennifer@prefix.ca

Please include “Exhibit P” in your subject line or on your envelope.

Artists will be notified of the results six to eight weeks after the deadline. Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art will handle all submissions with care; however, we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.
