The Garage: Call for Proposals
The Garage Public Exhibition Space
Call for Proposals
Deadline: Friday, February 22
How to Apply: View full Call for Proposals.
With the Burrard Arts Foundation’s move into new premises at 258 East 1st Avenue has come an exciting addition to our programming: The Garage. A former loading bay, The Garage has been renovated into a street-facing, glass-fronted exhibition space. The work inside will be visible through the pictured glass garage door only; gallery guests will not be able to enter the space.
In keeping with the BAF’s mission to support emerging artists, foster creativity in the public realm, and break down barriers to accessibility, we are excited to announce that we will be opening up The Garage to proposals from local artists. The Garage is an ideal opportunity for artistic experimentation, and a low-barrier way for artists to get involved in BAF’s activities. The Garage acts as the most public access point into BAF’s on-site programming, and we are seeking proposals that will spark public curiosity and engage passersby with the gallery.
We are now accepting proposals, with a deadline of Friday, February 22nd. The selected artist(s) will be notified on Friday, March 1st, with the first selected installation opening on Friday, April 5 alongside BAF Gallery’s next exhibitions from artists Holly Schmidt and Charlene Vickers.
Full submission guidelines, and directions on how to apply, can be found in the full Garage Call for Proposals. We invite you to reach out with any questions you may have around the feasibility and suitability of your idea.
Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing your ideas!
