Call for Submissions: Art As Activism SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Sunday, July 7, 2019 Main image: Alex Jacobs-Blum, The Medicine Game Guelph Museums invites contemporary artists to participate in Art As Activism: Truth, Survivance and Resilience, an exhibition about our collective journey toward decolonization, through the submission of artworks that reflect personal experiences and challenge the conventions of institutional space. We are open to all stories and forms of expression inspired by lived experiences, including expressions of truth, survivance and resilience. The exhibition, Art As Activism: Truth, Survivance and Resilience, will open on August 2, 2019 in conjunction with the performance of John Galt and The Instant City, a musical theatre production that navigates Galt’s background as a writer and Colonist. Both the exhibition and the performance will question Galt’s positionality in the context of our local Indigenous history and the impact of colonization that continues to shape Guelph today. The call is open to all artists who produce wall-mounted works in a broad range of media. A maximum of three works may be submitted by each artist. Installation and technical requirements must be included in the application.
