Call for submissions, exhibitions, grants and more!

SUBMISSIONS DUE: February 1st, 2018 at Midnight

The Centre for Art Tapes invites self-identifying women and femmes to submit video work for a screening of Atlantic Women’s video art from 1980-2017.

Selected works will be screened by Video Pool’s series: Isolated Landscapes: a collection of work by women from the prairies from 1984-2009. We define the Atlantic region as New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI and Newfoundland and are looking for anything made between 1980 and 2017. Artists at any stages of their careers are welcomed to apply or submit work on behalf of artists who have passed away during that time.

More information about the screening and how to apply can be found here.

The 30th Annual Media Arts Scholarship Exhibition

The Centre for Art Tapes is pleased to present the 30th annual Media Art Scholarship Presentation.

This years participating artists are: Andrea Thorne, Charvel Rappos, Ian Funke-McKay, Juss Heinsalu, Kate Grey and Keelin Jack.
