Call For Submissions

Deadline: March 18, 2024
Location: Kelowna, BC

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is now accepting exhibition proposals from artists and curators for the 2025 programming of their main gallery and project gallery.

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is an artist-run centre located in Kelowna, BC. The Alternator presents year-round exhibitions in all media by emerging and mid-career Canadian and international artists, as well as artist talks, exchanges, panel discussions, fundraising events, publications, workshops and other events that promote an awareness of contemporary art practices.

Works will be selected by the programming committee based on the following criteria:

  • Compatibility with the Alternator’s mandate
  • Quality of the artwork (with an emphasis on experimental approach)
  • Clarity of the written proposal
  • Production cost and availability

Further, the programming committee seeks diversity of perspective, medium and theme when establishing the annual exhibition calendar.

The Alternator welcome submissions from under-represented artists of all backgrounds including, but not limited to, Indigenous, Black, and racialized persons; refugee, newcomer and immigrant persons; two-spirit, LGBTQ+ and gender non-binary persons, persons with diverse abilities, and those on low-incomes or living in poverty. They are committed to ensuring equitable access to our submissions process. Please contact them if you require any accommodations to participate.

The Alternator is committed to fostering artists’ professional autonomy and is proud to pay successful applicants CAR/FAC fees.

The deadline for applications will be March 18, 2024 (midnight).
