Creators and artists working in any discipline and residing in Quebec (Canada) and in the United Kingdom are invited to propose a digital interactive installation.
This call for proposals, issued jointly by the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership and Quays Culture, stems from the recognition that our organizations share a similar vision for public space as territory to be explored, by artists and audiences alike.
The project is aimed at giving artists the opportunity to immerse themselves creatively in a range of exhibition settings, and to have the opportunity to reach large audiences on either side of the Atlantic.
The proposal selected for production will be consistent with certain elements of artistic direction common to the two organizations: the desire to disrupt people’s everyday routines with bold, astonishing and thought-provoking works that capture the viewer’s imagination.
The artwork will be presented in Salford Quays (UK) first in December 2018 as part of Lightwaves 2018 and the following year in the Quartier des Spectacles in Montreal (CA). It could then be presented elsewhere.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING PROPOSALS
MONDAY APRIL 23rd 2018 10 a.m. (Montreal) 3 p.m. (United Kingdom)
