Hamilton Artists Inc. (The Inc.) is mandated to exhibit a range of artistic disciplines and career levels, and to exhibit a cross-section of artists from local, regional and national communities. As an artist-run centre, they are interested in works/projects that have potential impact, push boundaries and engage with critical, conceptual and/or experimental thinking from a diverse range of perspectives and voices. The Inc. supports submissions that showcase artists and curators’ most recent endeavours as well as works that incite conversation and promote a range of intersectional narratives.
The Inc. welcome submissions from all qualified individuals and strongly encourage submissions from members of equity-seeking communities, including women, racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions. Please advise of any accommodations needed to ensure you can access and complete the submissions process.
The Cannon Gallery is the Inc.’s largest gallery space. They encourage open proposals from local, national, and international artists and curators at all levels of their careers. Artist fees for exhibitions in the Cannon Gallery adhere to, and where possible exceed, recommended CARFAC compensation to artists. Applications may be project or practice-based in scope. There are typically 5 exhibition turnovers in this space each year, including an annual curated exhibition by the Programming Director, and a dedicated graduate awards exhibition in partnership with McMaster University.
The Cannon Gallery is currently programmed through to 2020. Applications submitted in 2018 will be juried for the 2021 exhibition schedule. The Inc. receive a high volume of applications for this space and as such only those selected for an exhibition will be notified.
