Cut Thumb ARI: Call for Proposals

DEADLINE : 1st May, 2016

Cut Thumb ARI is seeking proposals for the May- December 2016 program and 2017 Program. We are looking for experimental artists at any stage in their careers for solo and group exhibitions. Cut Thumb wants to hear your ideas for projects that are ambitious and respond to our unique space. Cut Thumb ARI is located in a backyard garage/shed in West End, providing opportunities for artists to develop and display new work outside of the ‘white cube.’ Applications for new work that is distinctly experimental and responds either conceptually or materially to the space will be highly considered. Cut Thumb welcomes both large and small scale projects and also welcomes ideas for projects that may function and exist outside of the Cut Thumb Space.

Proposals are due by the 1st of May 2016 by 11pm. Proposals submitted after this time will not be considered.
