CAFKA.13 – The Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area, Canada – deadline 30 December 2011 #artopps

CAFKA wants to hear what artists are thinking about and what drives their practice. The theme of the Spring 2013 biennial exhibition will therefore be determined by the topics and content identified within the proposals. Further, CAFKA seeks artists who are able to respond to the specific features of the local urban landscape and culture as sites of critique and reflection from a global perspective.

CAFKA is inviting proposals for new or existing works that engage the public and a diverse audience. Works in all media will be considered including sculpture, performance, video, audio, installation, photography, painting, drawing, and digital media.

Artist Fees paid for Visual and Media Art Projects: $2,000 CAD, plus travel expenses. Wherever possible CAFKA will work with artists to source the donation of materials to help offset production costs. Video and one-time performance fees are paid in accordance with CARFAC (Canadian Artists’ Representation/le Front des Artistes Canadiens).
