T6 is seeking submissions from students and emerging artists for the upcoming group exhibition I Blink my Eyes to Keep the Time, curated by Rebecca Proppe and Brittany Myburgh. The exhibition will run from February 8th to 14th, 2019.

This juried group exhibition seeks out student and emerging artists whose work engages with the concept of time.

How can passing time be represented? Can moments be preserved or captured? The concept of time can be incorporated into the work itself, through a focus on process or performance, or through media works that engage with visions of the past, present, and future.

Potential subjects:

  • Bodily experience of time
  • Movement, affect and the body
  • Perceptions of time
  • Temporality and futurity
  • Non-linear temporality
  • Seeing time
  • Keeping time
  • Performing time

The gallery supports the presentation of high quality visual and interdisciplinary contemporary art. For this exhibition we are accepting proposals of work from student artists, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as recently graduated and emerging artists. Submissions are not limited to a single genre. Painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, video, sound, performance and new media are welcome.

Note: Works in progress will be considered as long as applicants provide the selection team with a clear idea of the finished piece, and if selected, they must be completed by January 4th, 2019.

Deadline for submissions: December 21st, 2019, midnight. Selected artists will be notified in early January 2019.

To apply: Please submit to the editors at T6 via tsixhundred@gmail.com. Ideally we request a single PDF or word document that includes your artist bio, statement and images.

Based out of Toronto, T6 aims to promote the discussion of all things creative. For our Summer issue, we are particularly interested in providing students a platform for publishing the work that they produced throughout the academic year.

We encourage the submission of visual artwork, artist interviews, photo diaries and exhibition reviews. We also welcome the submission of poetry, creative writing, short formal articles and longer papers.

Visual artwork will be featured on our online gallery with further opportunities for exhibition. Articles will be featured on our online forum (up to 600 words) and longer papers will form a component of a print publication. We welcome submissions on any topic related to arts and culture.

Submission deadline: November 30th 2018
