For 2020, the Art Gallery of Alberta will be expanding the concept of its Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art beyond provincial borders. This call is open to artists physically or otherwise within, from, or in proximity to the borders of Alberta, Treaty 4, Treaty 6, Treaty 7, Treaty 8 and Treaty 10.
This exhibition, sponsored by ATB Financial, will be jointly organized and presented at the Art Gallery of Alberta and Remai Modern in the Fall of 2020.
A border can draw a distinction; define an area; define a practice; define a state of mind. A border is a separation between two realms but it’s also the point where they meet. Borders can be metaphysical, geopolitical, geographical, arbitrary, fluid and calcified.
Artists are encouraged to think of borders in the largest possible sense.
Submissions will be accepted no later than Wednesday, May 1.
