The Integrate Art Society invites artists, curators, collectives, and organizations to curate a pop-up exhibition during the Integrate Arts Festival from August 24-26, 2018.
Now in its second year, Fuse is an initiative to support the artistic community of Victoria by creating a new temporary pop-up location where art can be displayed or performed. The Integrate Arts Society encourages all forms of artistic practice, including but not limited to visual arts, performance, sound installations, and literary arts. Artists living in the Capital Regional District may submit proposals to create works that respond to a specific site located in downtown Victoria. The Society will select one proposal and work with the chosen artist(s)/ collective/ group to make sure that the chosen site is viable (in terms of permissions, availability, and logistics), and will work to find a secondary space if necessary.
The chosen artist(s)/collective/group will be paid a fee of $500 to support with the material costs, logistics of the exhibition, and/or related programming. As part of the program, Integrate will assist the chosen group in seeking additional support and funding as required. If a group, collective, or curator’s project is chosen, the Integrate Arts Festival requires that the artists will be paid fairly. The artist(s) will be responsible for all planning and installation aspects of the exhibition, with personnel and technical support from Integrate, including assistance with the installation, as well as marketing for the show.
Integrate Arts Society values diversity and strongly encourages submissions from Indigenous artists, queer artists, artists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and artists with different abilities. Emerging artists/collectives/curators are especially encouraged to apply.
