Xchanges is excited to announce that we are now accepting proposals for our 2021-22 gallery season which runs September 2021-June 2022. Artists and curators from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands are invited to submit proposals. Xchanges programming supports a range of visual arts mediums with a particular interest in exhibiting the diverse practices of artists in the early stages of their career and those who have taken a new departure with their work. All exhibition proposals are reviewed by an independent jury and if selected, artists will receive an honorarium for their participation.
Xchanges is committed to exhibiting the work of artists from diverse and/or marginalized communities including Indigenous, Black, Persons of Colour or Racialized persons, artists with accessibility challenges, gender and sexually diverse artists. We recognize that these artists may need some additional supports to bring their work to the public. Artists are encouraged to share this information in their application so we may take this into consideration when considering all applicants and how we can support artists.
