Call for Virtual Studio Visits for Emerging Artists

Sign up deadline: April 15th at 11:59pm

Due to COVID-19, there is a shortage of opportunities to discuss recent and ongoing production of emerging artists’ work. In order to best support new-generation and emerging artists whose discussion of work has been affected by this recent pandemic, several curators from regional institutions are collaborating to offer 30-min Skype/Zoom/Google Hangout studio visits over the last two weeks of April. This initiative gives you an opportunity to dialogue with curatorial professionals from partnering institutions to discuss your recently completed work and overall practice via virtual meetings. These are free to sign-up for, and operate on a first come, first serve basis. Selected artists will be given a randomly generated time slot and curator to virtually meet.

Participating Curators:

Leila Timmins – The Robert McLaughlin Gallery
Matthew Kyba – Visual Arts Centre of Clarington
Lisa Deanne Smith – OCAD U’s Onsite Gallery
Jaclyn Quaresma – The Durham Art Gallery
Michelle Gewurtz – Ottawa Art Gallery – Galerie d’art d’Ottawa
Xenia Benelovski – SUGAR Contemporary

Available times:

April 20 – 30th

– 8:30am – 9:30am
– 10:00am – 10:30am
– 11:00am – 11:30am
– 11:45am – 12:15pm
– 12:30pm – 1:00pm
– 12:45pm – 1:15pm
– 1:30pm – 2:00pm

If you’re interested, please email “virtualstudiovisits2020@gmail.com” with:

1) Your full name

3) Artist website
4) A short bio (250 words max)
5) Artist statement (250 words max)

On April 18th, artists will be emailed their timeslot, communication method (Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype), and Curator. Please make sure to test your microphone/camera and internet connection before chatting, as each participating curator will not be able to go over the allotted 30 minutes to allow for equal time for each artist.
