Regular Program  |  Deadline: 1 August 2018

aceartinc. exhibits 5 major exhibitions a year by contemporary visual artists and is dedicated to diversity in its programming. To this end we encourage applications from all contemporary artists and curators, groups and collectives in all visual arts media.

This Artist Run Centre is passionate about the work being produced by contemporary artists and arts writers and critics in Canada and abroad. Many successful, well known and not so well known Canadian artists have shown work at ace early in their careers- we are an established (but not establishment) part of the unique ecosystem of Canadian contemporary art.

Selection process

Selections for the Regular Program are made by a jury consisting of Winnipeg-based artists/curators/critics, ace staff and board. The ace jury reviews submissions within the context of aceartinc.’s mandate and goals and our available resources. aceartinc. will pay CARFAC exhibition fees to artists; travel and accommodation, one-way shipping and per-diems will also be provided. A writer is commissioned to write a response to the Regular Program exhibitions via the Critical Distance writing program, which is published online and printed in PaperWait. Get a sense of aceartinc. by visiting our website and social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, website). To see a floor plan of our Main Gallery visit https://www.aceart.org/facilities

PaperWait is aceartinc.’s annual publication that is comprised of the writing that we commission throughout the year in response to our exhibitions. It also contains juried artist pages that are usually on a theme.

Portraits have been used throughout history as  means of asserting identity, power, symbolism, affiliation,  rejection, and so many other ideas. We encourage submissions on the theme of portraiture: people, places, faces, metaphors … the possibilities are endless for exploring a genre whose potency only seems to increase.

Size: 5″x 8″, 350 dpi, labelled with name, title, year, and medium. One image only please.
