Call for Submissions: MAG Summer Artist Residency 2020

The Mitchell Art Gallery invites Canadian and international artists to apply for the second year of the MAG Summer Residency Program. We encourage applicants with interdisciplinary, non-traditional creative practices to apply.

This residency works to support an artist with space and time to initiate or further a body of work, and bridge their practice with a local community, whether a project connects to a relevant local issue or history, or has participatory or socially-engaged elements. The residency is intended for artists interested in the reciprocal learning opportunity from encountering a community or public, with the MAG as the home base for those encounters.

Application deadline: March 1, 2020


The John and Maggie Mitchell Art Gallery is located within MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. We are a public gallery committed to featuring diverse artistic and curatorial perspectives, and supporting critical discourses in contemporary art. We are currently accepting submissions for our 2020 Summer Residency Program that will provide individual artists/artist collectives with the space and time to initiate or further a body of work that connects and engages with local communities. Previous artists in residence at the MAG have included Halie Finney (Edmonton), Florence Yee (Toronto), and Olivia Chow (Hong Kong).

Those interested in learning more and/or applying can do so via the MAG website: www.macewan.ca/MitchellArtGallery

Any questions can be sent to Carolyn Jervis or Jamelie Bachaalani at mitchellartgallery@macewan.ca
