CLGA Call for Exhibition Proposals

We are looking for exhibitions to form a year of programming in our gallery to begin in 2011.
Are you an artist?
Do you work with a community group?
Are you a researcher familiar with the CLGA or another archival collection?
If your work can help the CLGA in its mandate to give public access to information and materials by and about LGBT people in Canada or helps us to fulfill our mission then we want your exhibition proposals.

The opening of the new CLGA facility on Isabella Street has provided the Archives with a new and exciting addition: an art gallery and museum space to be used for the exhibition of CLGA materials and for independent artist work that concerns the diverse history and currents of queer people and culture, particularly in relation to the Canadian experience. The gallery opened with the first of its annual exhibitions of the CLGA National Portrait Collection and will continue with an annual program of exhibitions for projects as proposed by a broad range of applicants. In addition to exhibitions of artist work, proposals may also be completed by individuals familiar with the collection and who wish to curate shows of materials from the CLGA.

To propose an exhibition, please review and complete the Gallery Exhibition Proposal. Proposals must be exhibition ready. Deadline to apply September 15, 2010.
