CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: FLUID
Toronto, Ontario, CanadaExhibition Dates: June 5- July 2, 2014
Location: Project Gallery, 1109 Queen Street East
FLUID is a juried exhibition of photography by bi* photographers in celebration of WorldPride 2014, to be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. WorldPride is an international gathering incorporating activism, education, and the history and culture of global C communities and includes a cultural festival, an international human rights conference, three marches and opening and closing ceremonies. WorldPride is held once every 4 years and this will be the first time the celebration will be held in North America. Over 1.2 million people are expected to attend WorldPride.
This exhibit seeks to feature the work of bi* identified artists working in any photo-based format (digital, collage, analog, alternative or historical processes). Bi* artists include those who claim, amongst other possibilities, the identities bisexual, queer, pan, asexual, omnisexual, two-spirit, fluid or other non-exclusively straight or non-exclusively gay identities.
We are seeking works that explore the ideas of “fluidity”, “instability”, “movement”, “shape”, “liquidity”, and/or that challenge the binaries of either “hetero” and “homo” only identities.
There is a non-refundable submission fee of $45.00 CAD to cover the costs of mounting the exhibition (this covers your entry of up to 4 images). We continue to fundraise in support of FLUID and hope to be able to offer bursaries to cover printing, framing and shipping. We encourage photographers working in digital media to print locally in Toronto and we are happy to recommend local professional print shops.
DEADLINE: APRIL 1ST, 2014
