M.A.P.S: Making Art for Peculiar Spaces
The Gallery at Casa is pleased to present an exhibition opportunity for emerging artists aged 18 to 35. We are currently accepting proposals for a project that will take place in June 2016 both in Casa and public spaces in downtown Lethbridge. The opening reception will be Friday, June 3 at Casa.
M.A.P.S. is an acronym for “Making Art for Peculiar Spaces.” M.A.P.S. invites artists to think outside the gallery confines by giving consideration to concepts of public art, ephemerality and risk. Artists will be provided an unfinished wooden shadow box with a plexi-glass front. Artists will be taxed with using this box to create a public artwork (interior dimensions: 16″ x 20″ x 2.5″). Painting, drawing, photography, collage and sculptural techniques can be utilized to express the artist’s intention. Finished pieces will be installed throughout the downtown core of Lethbridge in unusual spaces such as lamp posts, fences and the sides of buildings.
