Centre CLARK is currently inviting artists, collectives and curators to submit proposals for audio works for its Poste Audio annual programming. This call will complete our 2021-2022 programming calendar. Due to last year’s exceptional circumstances, only three (3) projects will be selected.
Proposals must be adapted to our listening station located in CLARK’s vestibule, in the space adjacent to the library. Projects requiring one of the exhibition rooms will not be considered*. Many presentation formats are welcome and can diverge from the usual dissemination mode (iPod and headset), as long as they’re adapted to the Poste Audio space and comply with the current health regulations. The selection committee welcomes all forms of conceptual sound art. Music projects will not be considered, and videos cannot be presented in this space.
CLARK offers a $325 fee to present the work for 5 weeks. The center also offers installation assistance, 16 hours of manual labour for the construction of wood-based presentation mounts and access to Atelier CLARK, if needed.
All applicants must submit the following elements in a single PDF to [email protected] :
— a brief project description (250 words maximum);
— a brief artist statement (150 words maximum);
— audio material: Internet link (Soundcloud, Google Drive, or other) to the proposed project or to previous sound art projects, including relative info on the works;
— visual material in JPG or PDF format, if required (for example, to illustrate a specific presentation format*), including relative info on the works;
— a list of technical requirements and any other pertinent information, if needed;
—a brief explanation of how your project can be adapted to the current health regulations, if necessary.
Deadline: August 15, 2021
*Projects requiring either of our exhibition spaces should be submitted to our general call for submissions, which is scheduled for the end of summer 2021.
