Call for Hexagram-ELEKTRA 2023-2024 projects

Deadline : April 8, 2023

This year, Hexagram network and ELEKTRA are jointly launching a call for projects for women, trans, non-binary and queer artists, who are members of the Hexagram network. The selected projects will be part of the ELEKTRA Gallery’s programming in 2024.

Since its opening in 2019, the ELEKTRA Gallery’s mandate is to create a space for aesthetic and discursive research through digital art production. Located in the heart of the Mile-End, it has become a major support and dissemination center for the artistic community. In this context, the Hexagram-ELEKTRA partnership aims to encourage exchanges between the cultural and academic communities in the field of digital arts.

Other exhibitions at the outcome of previous calls include an artwork by Cristo Riffo [Hexagram student member, Concordia University] which will be presented in the next ELEKTRA gallery season. In 2022, Slow Track by Timothy Thomasson [Hexagram student member, Concordia University], and in 2021 Exploration.135, Transatlantic Vision. by Juliette Lusven [Hexagram student member, UQAM].

To submit a project for the 2023-2024 programming of the Gallery, please send the following elements to :

  • Artist’s curriculum vitae
  • A description of the project and the artistic approach in PDF format (maximum 2000 words) including:
    • Research-creation approach;
    • Description of the work;
    • A technical sheet for the work;
    • Documentation of the work in progress or completed (maximum 10 images and/or videos) via a permanent download link (for example: Google Drive, One Drive, DropBox).
  • The submission deadline is April 8, 2023.

The selection of the works will be made by a committee composed of ELEKTRA representatives and regular members of the Hexagram network.

The gallery offers professional technical support for the installation. Limited but high quality equipment is available. Please note that works with sound content can only be played with headphones.

Hexagram will offer 1 000$ to the selected student for the exhibition and the production of a DEMO.
