Showcase: small spaces/big ideas

SHOWCASE

SHOWCASE: small spaces/big ideas is a community art project that highlights the work of local artists and creators.


Print

Taking inspiration from the building’s own architectural zinc tiles, the SHOWCASE wall was designed by local design firm Oliver Apt. It is a constellation of 26 mini-exhibition spaces available for 2-month bookings by anyone of any age, experience or background who wants to show their artwork at the AGA. This is a non-juried exhibition. Each booking period brings a new look at the diversity of Alberta creativity.

The aim of the AGA is to create a welcoming and engaging environment, in which people are motivated to transform their understanding of the world by making connections with the visual arts.

Celebrate your creativity and submit your artwork to SHOWCASE: small spaces/big ideas at your AGA.

The AGA retains the right to refuse any submission that is deemed inappropriate for presentation in the public realm, primarily commercial in its intent, offensive and/or dangerous. The AGA also retains the right to remove a Showcase artwork at any time. Should this occur, the Showcase participant will be informed.

Please note: The AGA will make every attempt to book the Showcase space requested, however an alternate Showcase space may be allocated at the AGA’s discretion depending on space available and submitted works.

SHOWCASE submissions for September/October and November/December will open Tuesday, August 2 at noon.
