APPEL: CAFKA – Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area


CAFKA – Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area is seeking submissions for its biennial exhibition of contemporary art in the public spaces of the Region of Waterloo to take place in June 2016.

The CAFKA Biennial takes the experience of contemporary art out of the gallery and brings it to the public square, presenting contemporary art as a critical and integral part of community life. Since 2001 CAFKA has exhibited 188 installations, interventions, projections and performances by 174 artists from across Canada and around the world.

CAFKA is inviting proposals for new works that engage the public and diverse audiences. The CAFKA Program Committee wants to hear what artists are thinking about and what drives their practice. We are seeking artists who are able to respond to the specific features of the local urban landscape and culture.

CAFKA pays artist fees of $1,800 CAD for new work, in addition to negotiable expenses. CAFKA will work with artists to source the donation of materials to help offset production costs. Video and one-time performance fees are paid in accordance with CARFAC (Canadian Artists Representation/le Front des Artistes Canadiens).

Please note: Proposals that rely on the physical characteristics of galleries (controlled lighting, low ceilings, hanging walls etc.) cannot be considered. For images of public spaces for possible project installations, please refer to CAFKA’s exhibition archive for images from CAFKA.14, previous biennials, or check out a sample of public spaces in the Waterloo Region where CAFKA has installed projects in the past for a photo album of potential public spaces.
