METAL ARTS GUILD of CANADA
2013 BIENNIAL JURIED EXHIBITION
Deadline: 22 March 2013 *FINAL EXTENSION OF DEADLINE*
The Metal Arts Guild of Canada invites members of the Guild to submit current work to our 2013 biennial juried exhibition, Design Sans Frontières: Metal Artists In Collaboration.
Opening during Meta-Mosaic: 2013 SNAG Conference, Design Sans Frontières will be showcased in the main floor gallery of the Design Exchange, Canada's Design Museum.
Digital design and fabrication processes are erasing the old distinctions between designers and makers, craft and industry. At the same time, we yearn for the unique connection between culture, material and making that has traditionally defined craft.
The fact is that creativity knows no borders. We are looking for work that integrates the materials and techniques of metal arts and other creative disciplines. We encourage teams to explore ways to combine traditional and new modes of making and design in the metal arts.
Teams can comprise a metal artist working with a collaborator from any other creative field: ceramics, glassblowing, architecture, graphic design, literature, dance... We welcome all forms of multidisciplinary and multi-media design and making.
Each team is responsible for conceptual development and production of the finished piece that is submitted for jurying.
The entry fee is $50, payable with Visa, MasterCard or Paypal. The entry fee covers a maximum of three works, and covers both members of the collaborative partnership. The entry fee is nonrefundable.
At least one member of the collaboration must belong to the Metal Arts Guild of Canada. To become a member of MAGC, visit: www.metalartsguild.ca/page/guild-members-1
The work selected for exhibition will be chosen by a Jury composed of:
