Poste audio

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

DEADLINE /
June 1st, 2023

Centre CLARK invites artists, collectives, and curators to submit proposals for sound projects for the Poste audio’s component of its annual programming. Selected projects will be presented from October 2023 to June 2024.

By presenting pieces by emerging or established, local or international artists, CLARK supports a plurality of innovative artistic practices. The programming of Poste Audio is polyphonic. It features a multiplicity of voices, perspectives, heritages and experiences that translate into as many sonic languages. This plurality is reflected in the programming, by the prioritization of marginalized and varied points of view.

Poste audio is a 4’ x 5’ (1,2 x 1,5 meters) space located in the window front at the entrance of the Center, next to Librairie CLARK. It welcomes projects whose main component is sound art. Pluridisciplinary practices are also suitable for the context of our audio station*. 

Centre CLARK provides a 350$ honorarium for the presentation of the project. The organization also provides assistance with the set up of the project, including 20 hours of labour for the fabrication of a wooden display device and, if necessary, access to Atelier CLARK, and its team of technicians. 

In addition, CLARK provides a fee of 200$ for the artist(s) to participate in a 30 minute long public discussion – remotely or in person – of their project with our cultural mediator. 

Artists, collectives and curators wishing to submit their project must send the following elements in the form of a PDF document to [email protected] :

— Project description (250 words max.) ;

— An artistic or curatorial statement (250 words max.); 

— A curriculum vitae ; 

— Audio material and its description (link to the proposed audio project or previous audio projects) ;

— In the case of a specific installation or device, visual material and its description (in JPG or PDF format);

— A list of technical requirements for the project’s implementation and any other necessary details; 

— A technical plan, if relevant.

*Since this call is intended to highlight sound art, it is important to consider that musical projects are not accepted. Please note that this call is only for projects that are specifically designed for the context of the audio station, which has limited space. Projects specifically thought out for our two exhibition spaces will need to be submitted to the general call for submissions scheduled between September and October 2023.
