CALL FOR ARTISTS 2015
Call for Artist Submissions 2015
The CHINATOWN REMIXED COLLECTIVE would like to invite all emerging and established artists to participate in CHINATOWN REMIXED. This will be Chinatown Remixed’s seventh year showcasing art in non-traditional spaces such as: grocery stores, restaurants, cafés, alleyways and hair salons.
This project is organized by the Chinatown Remixed Collective, an Ottawa-based not-for-profit art collective working in collaboration with independent businesses located on Somerset Street West. Our mission is to nurture the arts community in Ottawa.
Artwork selected through this Call for Submissions will be displayed from September 19th until October 19th 2015.
The grand opening of the exhibits, including vernissages and an artist walking tour, will take place on Saturday, September 19th 2pm – 11pm, 2015 at select locations on Somerset Street West.
Artists are invited to submit original artwork to be included in the Chinatown Remixed festival. Submissions are encouraged for programming on September 19th, as well as for display in Somerset West businesses during the festival.
Acceptable mediums include: video, painting, drawing, print, photography, sculpture, music, and performance.
Artists may include up to (4) pieces of artwork within a single submission if they are meant to be displayed together. An artist can submit multiple proposals if the contents are different, for instance a performance piece for September 19th followed by a painting for display in a businesses.
