market gallery: call for submissions

Market Gallery 2019/2020  Call For Submissions
Deadline: April 20 2019

this town is small is seeking proposals for the 2019-2020 exhibition season in our gallery space at the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market, 100 Belvedere Avenue – Charlottetown PEI.

We are interested in progressive forward-looking practices; the fruition of innovative ideas; inventive approaches to artistic production; and work based on an articulate theoretical and/or critical and/or poetic thesis. We encourage and facilitate the presentation of curatorial and artistic works that have and have not been exhibited in this locale. We are enthusiastic about artists’ most recent endeavors and art forms that propel contemporary production and incite conversation. Site-specific works that take into account the unique context of the Market Gallery will be given priority.

The Farmers’ Market Gallery is located within the indoor seating and eating space of the market: the place where locals and visitors enjoy their food from the market vendors and socialize. The Farmers’ Market Gallery is unique in the sense that it is not a typical white cube gallery space – it is public space that is already rich in character and interaction.

Artists and Curators submitting a proposal should be aware that there is an element of vulnerability for the work as it is a high-traffic exhibition space where food and beverages are consumed.

this town is small is dedicated to paying fees that meet CARFAC guidelines when funding is available.
