the guild: call for submissions (closed)

this town is small x The Guild: Call for Submissions


this town is small is partnering with The Guild for a series of exhibitions in 2020 and are seeking proposals from professional PEI artists.

We are interested in progressive, forward-looking practices; inventive approaches in artistic production; work that deals with issues of current social urgency, including diverse perspectives and histories; and work based on an articulate conceptual and/or critical and/or poetic thesis. We encourage and facilitate the presentation of curatorial and artistic works that have not yet been exhibited in this locale. We are enthusiastic about artists’ most recent endeavours and art forms that propel contemporary production and incite conversation.

Exhibitions will be reviewed by a jury of professional artists, and further curated by this town is small, and will be mounted in the Gallery @ The Guild, and possibly other venues as well, with the duration and structure of the shows being determined in part by the volume of submissions. Exhibitions will run from June to December 2020 with the dates subject to change.
