A Toronto-based Feminist Art Conference is seeking visual artists for a month long art exhibition for International Women’s Day 2015, at Daniels Spectrum (formerly called the Regent Park Arts and Culture Centre). Now in its third year, FAC has grown from the brainchild of a few feminist artists to a dynamic, grassroots, not-for-profit organization that brings together artists, academics and academics to consider feminist issues through art.

Next year’s exhibition will take place from March 3 – 31, 2015 with an opening reception on the evening of March 4.

Drawing upon its new home in Regent Park, where plans for revitalization have forced residents to relocate during the transition, the show will feature a spotlight theme that explores the concepts of displacement, uprooting, and relocation. Priority will be given to works that explore the topic from a women’s perspective and/or within a feminist framework including trans women, transfeminine persons and gender non-conforming individuals.

Participation in the exhibition is not limited to the spotlight theme. We will also be including works that pertain to broader feminist themes. Artists who are interested in submitting art in this manner do not have to complete a formal submission package, but rather can contact us directly.

Download the call for submissions here.

The deadline for submission is Thursday, January 15. Please send submissions to facmarch2015@gmail.com with “FAC Exhibition” in the subject line. Accepted artists will be notified the last week of January.

Submission questions should be sent to the FAC curator for this project, Jordana Franklin at jordanayfranklin@gmail.com.
