Call for Proposals: Neutral Ground Window Gallery
Exhibition Season: Fall 2020 - Spring 2021
APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO: ***May 22th, 2020***
Neutral Ground’s Window Gallery is a storefront exhibition space, visible 24/7. Located on the ground level of a busy, pedestrian-only street in downtown Regina the gallery is highly visible from both an interior pedestrian walkway, and from the exterior Scarth Street pedestrian mall. The Window Gallery is glass-enclosed, measuring 15’ long x 2’ 4” wide and 6’ 6” tall. Proposals for the Window Gallery will be limited to local artists, with an emphasis on emerging artists and practices.
Artists exhibiting in the Window Gallery will be paid a one-time exhibition fee in accordance with CARFAC Category 1 rates for exhibiting a single work. Proposals from artists from elsewhere in Saskatchewan and the prairie provinces may be considered, but please note that there is no additional budget for travel, accommodations or shipping of artwork available.
Neutral Ground provides assistance with installation and access to basic materials for the installation of works. Please note that as the window gallery is enclosed with glass on both long sides, works installed in this space should consider their visibility from all directions. The window gallery can accommodate multimedia works, however, audio-based work is not feasible in this space. Also, note that there is limited visibility during daylight hours for video work. Site-specific projects and proposals that are conceived of with the window space in mind will be of particular consideration.
Neutral Ground presents up to 5 exhibitions per year in the Window Gallery (pending funding). Artists are limited to one solo exhibition in a three year period and work that has been shown previously in Regina will typically not be eligible. We encourage experimentation, risk-taking, and work that pushes the boundaries of artists’ established practices.
