1. Request for Proposals: FUTURE FORWARD: Video Production

SNAP Gallery + Printshop is commissioning 4 visual artists to create an edition of original artist prints to be included with SNAP’s 40th anniversary portfolio and gallery exhibition. In addition, SNAP is looking to create a series of 4 short 15 minute digital stories (AKA videos) documenting each artist’s printmaking technique. The final digital stories will be distributed online for fundraising and promotional purposes. Artists will be filmed in their studio creating the work, documenting each artists’ printmaking process as well as short interview segments. We have commissioned 2 artists from Edmonton so we are looking for a local video production team to film both artists and produce the videos. We have one artist located in Toronto and one in Montreal, so coordination of videographers in both of these cities will be necessary for the project.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: February 15, 2022

2. SNAP Gallery Call for Exhibition Proposals

SNAP is seeking proposals from Artists, Curators, and Collectives for gallery exhibitions during the 2023/2024 exhibition seasons. Proposed exhibitions should engage with printmaking and print-related media. Experimental approaches and those that challenge our expectations of the medium are welcome and can include video, performance, animation, installation, sound, public or offsite art projects, multiples for distribution and/or many other approaches. SNAP is dedicated to supporting representation of and exhibition opportunities for Indigenous and Black Artists, and Artists of Colour. Discussion, resource sharing, and a shared awareness regarding systemic and organizational barriers to full and equal participation in arts and culture will be an active and ongoing part of the review and selection process.
