OUR CALL FOR PROJECTS 2017 IS NOW CLOSED

Deadline: April 25, 2016



Project presentation - 2017 Programming

Every year, OPTICA presents a varied program of exhibitions, symposia, and artists’ talks, while investing in curated exhibitions on themes developed at the centre. These activities all propose a critical reflection on current issues in art, sustained and accompanied by the production of relevant publications.

The centre comprises two exhibition spaces and provides professional technical support in the gallery. Artists and curators are invited to submit projects for the gallery’s regular program. Project proposals are reviewed by the programming committee, which makes its recommendations for production.

OPTICA pays exhibition fees to artists and curators according to the scale recommended by the RAAV and the CARFAC

Please note that the deposit can only be made via a new online form.
