Hamilton Artists Inc. (HAI) Call for Proposals
Proposal Deadline: July 31, 2008

Established in 1975, Hamilton Artists Inc. (HAI) is one of the founding galleries of the artist-run centre system in Canada. The organization is entering an exciting development stage as it approaches the opening of a newly purchased, multi-presentation complex in November of 2008. For the 2010-2011 exhibition schedule, HAI is seeking: a wide range of multi-disciplinary proposals from artists as well as curatorial proposals for solo and group exhibitions in the Main Space; community-based proposals for limited programming in the community gallery area; intermedia works, sculpture/installation, performance art, video projection, sound art, site-responsive and relational works and other imaginative proposals for the courtyard space and the glass corridor that links the two buildings; and proposals by critical writers to produce exhibition texts.

The new home of HAI (opening in November 2008) features: Two gallery spaces - A 1200 sq. ft Main Space, and a 600 sq ft Members Space/ Community Gallery; a 2500 square ft. multi-purpose outdoor courtyard; a programmable glass corridor linking the two galleries; and a two-floor artist-in-residence space with a studio, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.

Hamilton Artists Inc. pays CARFAC artist fees for Main Space exhibitions and related exhibition costs, and assists with shipping. For more details, visit the website.
