Breathe: Exhibition Submission

“Breathe” Exhibition Submission, Jury and Curatorial Process
In order to be considered into either the Canadian or US exhibitions, artists must provide the following:
1. One to three (ONLY 1-3) clear images of your mask (maximum 2 MBs each)
2. An artist statement or the story about your mask in the body of your email.
3. Please include contact information, including address/country of residence in the body of your email.
4. You MUST be an accepted member of the Breathe Group community.
5. CANADIAN ARTISTS: Please EMAIL your completed submission to “[email protected]” by June 30, 2020. US Artists deadline has been extended due to severity of the pandemic in that country.
June 30, 2020
All masks FROM CANADIAN ARTISTS must be submitted per the above guidelines by no later than June 30, 2020*. The deadline for US artists has been extended due to the severity of the pandemic in that country.
*Some accommodation may be made for those artists whose process takes longer (ie: pottery, clay, glass makers). In this case, the artist must show that their mask has been in progress prior to the deadline date of June 30, 2020. It is important that progress photos be uploaded to the “Masks In Progress” album. However, masks must MUST be completed and photos submitted by no later than August 1, 2020.
