Call For Artists, SPACED

Deadline for Submissions

February 2 All day


If you require access accommodations, please contact Emily Maxwell, Luminato Accessibility Manager by email at [email protected]

Luminato Festival Toronto and Banded Purple invite artists to submit pre-existing artworks to be exhibited as part of SPACED, a temporary public art exhibition set to grace various Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) stations as part of Luminato in June 2024. 
Embracing diverse disciplines including photography, mural art, painting, and new media, this opportunity aims to spotlight Canada’s vibrant BIPOC artistic community by fostering new interpretations, visions, and engagements with the public. 

SPACED prompts artists to envision possible and even speculative futures across technology, cultural shifts, the environment, nature, and beyond. We encourage artists to explore and imagine utopian, dystopian, or visionary concepts related to the future through their chosen artistic mediums. We encourage bold expressions and remind artists to consider that the audience for this show will be commuters from all walks of life. 
Artist fees will be based on CARFAC minimums for a Category III group show with between 16-29 artists, with an exhibition license of up to 3 months. 
Exhibition Details: 

Venue: Various TTC Subway Stations 
Exhibition Dates: May 16, 2024 – July 30, 2024 
Deadline for Submissions: Friday, February 2nd, 2024 – 11:59 pm 
Eligibility: Open to BIPOC photographers, mixed media artists, and painters, eligible to work in Canada 

Artwork Specifications: Submissions may encompass photographs, mixed media pieces, and paintings interpreting the theme of possible futures. All works included in the exhibition will be produced on large format vinyl regardless of original medium. All styles and techniques are welcome. 

How to Submit: 
Artists are requested to submit high-resolution images of their artwork accompanied by a brief description or artist statement contextualizing how their work aligns with the theme. The submitted artwork should originate from a pre-existing project.

Thank you for considering participation in SPACED. We look forward to witnessing your interpretations and creative visions. 

Luminato Festival Toronto is an international multi-arts festival dedicated to programming that cuts across traditional artistic boundaries. We facilitate the intersection of artists, spectators, and city-spaces to produce once-in-a-lifetime, inclusive experiences that highlight the very best of our city, region, and country. We believe that the arts are essential in building stronger, more connected communities, and that creativity can inspire and change the world. In our increasingly complex reality, Luminato provides a creative sanctuary that reveals truths, prompts discussion, facilitates understanding and gives art a real-world context. 

**Image Description for featured image above:
Photograph of a Toronto Transit Commission subway platform. In the centre of the photo is a grey pillar, it’s symmetrically flanked by the grey subway platform on either side, then the dark edge of subway tracks and finally the grey walls of the tunnel. The forced perspective gives the optical illusion that the two subway tracks on the left and right side of the picture, merge in the centre behind the pillar.
