Deadline Date: Friday, 30 August.
Gallery Gachet welcomes submissions for exhibitions and projects that engage their mandate in interesting and challenging ways. They welcome work in any medium, including photography, video, performance art, drawing, installation, ceramics, textiles, community- and socially-engaged practices, and more.
They accept proposals for solo, group, curated, or major exhibition projects, as well as screenings, workshops, performances, and collaborations. Themes addressed through the artwork could include (but are not limited to) modes of healing, therapy, and ceremony; culture, spirit, and psyche; housing, displacement, and land restitution; neurodiversity, (dis)ability justice, and accessibility; substances, medicines, harm reduction, and safe supply; institutions and the asylum; poverty, criminalization, and marginalization; climate crisis and mental health; mad pride and the mad arts movement.
Gallery Gachet value practices emerging from lived experience and self-expression, although disclosure of personal narratives is not required. Gallery Gachet artist fees meet 2019 CARFAC rates. They provide support for openings, catering, marketing, A/V equipment, and installation for a five-week exhibition run at Gallery Gachet.
Gallery Gachet is a unique artist-run centre located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Gachet is a collectively-run exhibition and studio space built to empower participants as artists, administrators and curators.
