Ontario Place Winter Light Exhibition
Deadline: September 5
Ontario Place is seeking proposals for illuminated sculptures that project light, shape light, transmit light, reflect light and/or contain light. Applicants are encouraged to explore and combine unconventional materials and methods that respond to light in different ways, ensuring the piece is visually successful during the day and night in our winter environment. There is no application fee to submit; monetary compensation for proposals that are accepted in to the Exhibition.
This project is a temporary exhibit to run from December 2017 until March 2018. Ontario Place will in no way own the piece post-exhibit unless otherwise discussed with the applicant directly. Photos of the prospective exhibit locations can be found here: http://ontarioplace.com/en/winter-light-locations/
Ontario Place is an agency of the Government of Ontario that features 155 acres of breathtaking waterfront property in Toronto. The iconic location is a venue for live music, festivals, events and more.
Michael Landy's DEMONSTRATION
Deadline: September 10
Anyone can participate by sending in words, texts and slogans that represent their hopes and fears, expressing what makes them happy, angry or sad—from incidental, to monumental issues. With the help of assistants, Landy will transform selections from submitted content into red and white drawings creating a wall of protest . Over the course of the exhibition, these drawings will be installed on the walls of The Power Plant's Fleck Clerestory; and as the exhibition develops, so the demonstration will grow, making visible the social conditions of a contemporary political reality.
The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery is Canada’s leading non-collecting, public art gallery dedicated exclusively to contemporary visual art from Canada and the world.
