Call for Submissions: The Depanneur (Toronto, ON)

The Depanneur will now play host to College’s teeny-tiniest exhibition and installation space. Small works, 2D and 3D work, site-specific installation, and new media are being considered for exhibitions ranging 1-3 months in length.

THE SPACE: A glass rectangular prism – approx 6’x3’x3′ in size, transparent on all sides and raised to waist-height.

THE VENUE: The Depanneur is a culinary event space. We are a different space depending on the day, sometimes hosting drop-in dinners, sometimes 3-course prix-fixes, sometimes farmshares, sometimes film screenings. We are a diverse and ever-changing cast of characters.

THE REQUIREMENTS: Art on College West is “en panne”. The Depanneur will accept any type of proposal, provided it can be installed for a minimum of one month, and you can work with us to throw a raucous opening party for your art. We’ll do our best to promote your work. You’ll take home half the proceeds from the opening and 75% of the sale of your work.

CONTACT: [email protected] with all proposals.
DEADLINE: October 31st.
