Call For Submissions

 

Definitely Superior is a non-profit multi-disciplinary artist-run-centre/gallery and encourages the submission of exhibition proposals from emerging, mid-career and established artists,  who are innovative in their use of materials/media and approach to subject matter. Definitely Superior welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with other arts and community organizations, as well as curators. Our purpose is to encourage contemporary artistic endeavors in all media. We also foster experimental cultural development in art production, particularly those exhibitions that are politically and socially engaging. As a member of ARCCO, the gallery is committed to paying artists at the current CARFAC fee schedule for all selected exhibitions in our Main Programming. The gallery covers exhibition related costs (installation, invitations, mailing, opening reception, artists travel, hotel, talks, workshops, per diem) as well as assisting with the cost of shipping. Exhibitions are selected by the Programming Committee, made up of artists and curators, who are members of the organization.
