I was contacted a few weeks ago, and sent a wonderful media kit by the folks behind the Courvoisier Collective.
Courvoisier is hosting an exciting competition for artists of all backgrounds and media, with the opportunity for their work to be displayed in at Gallery 1313 or — get this, on billboards around Toronto! If that’s not exciting, I don’t know what is.
The competition’s theme is renewal, specifically looking at the revolutionary role of art. This can be interpreted two ways: 1) with respect to art’s capacity to revolutionize its own content and form; and/or 2) art’s potential to challenge the status quo. You can read the rest of their manifesto here.
The deadline is July 8th for consideration in the Billboard Showcase category, and July 15 for the Gallery Award category.
I may have even submitted something myself…
Can’t wait to see the results of the competition!
P.S. My Ravelry page for the above project is here.
