Dazibao http://www.dazibao-photo.org/ is an artist-run centre dedicated to the dissemination of contemporary photography. Through exhibitions and publications Dazibao supports artistic practices and theoretical reflections that offer innovative approaches to photography or that propose fresh links with other disciplines. The centre serves as a launching pad for young artists, and as an ideal place for more established artists to initiate and disseminate new projects. Dazibao welcomes artists from Canada and abroad.
Dazibao's programming is established by combining the submissions received as part of the call for proposals and/or from the initiatives of the board. Please submit only once a year.
Your Proposal Must Include:
1. a maximum of 20 slides, well identified, accompanied by a slide list (title, medium, size and date) or CD-ROMs (formatted in PowerPoint, MAC compatible) or DVDs (video work) (we will not accept web links or any variety of digital images sent by e-mail); please do not send original work
2. a clear description of your project
3. an artist statement
4. a curriculum vitae
Please send a self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage if you want your application to be returned to you, otherwise it will be disposed of.
If you are sending a submission from outside of Canada, please send postage in the form of an international money order, international reply coupons or international stamps.
Submissions must be postmarked no later than September 1st 2009 or January 1st 2010. If this date falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day.
