aceartinc. exhibits 5 major exhibitions a year by contemporary visual artists and we welcome submissions from all emerging contemporary artists and curators working in any media.
The gallery also runs several ongoing projects and hosts numerous one-offs; amongst other things we are the proud home of Flux Gallery and the Cartae Open School. This Artist Run Centre is passionate about the work being produced by contemporary artists and arts writers and critics in Canada and abroad. Many successful, well known and not so well known Canadian artists have shown work at ace early in their careers- we are an established (but not establishment) part of the unique ecosystem of Canadian contemporary art.
Selections for the Regular Program are made by a jury consisting of Winnipeg-based artists/curators/critics, ace staff and board. The ace jury reviews submissions within the context of aceartinc.’s mandate and goals and our available resources. aceartinc. will pay CARFAC exhibition fees to artists; travel and accommodation, one-way shipping and per-diems will also be provided. A writer is commissioned to write a response to the Regular Exhibitions via the Critical Distance writing program, which is published online and anthologised in PaperWait.
aceartinc. is dedicated to diversity in its programming and to this end encourages applications from all contemporary artists and curators, groups and collectives in all visual arts media. But we only have the chance to exhibit you if you apply. Please apply.
Please call (204) 944-9763 or email [email protected] if you require other assistance regarding your submission.
