We are now seeking applications from artist-run initiatives to participate in the first edition of Juxtapose Art Fair on June 4-6, 2021 in Aarhus, Denmark. Initiatives may include artist-run exhibition spaces, artist collectives, independent art publications, online platforms, or other artist-run organizations and collaborative projects.
We invite you to propose a project that best represents your initiative’s unique profile. Projects can be in any media, including performative, interactive, and temporal artworks and activities. What could you show, or do, or make at the fair, that would most effectively communicate your initiative’s core mission?
Selected initiatives will be exhibited in Godsbanen’s Rå Hal, a former freight train garage. Think outside the booth - how could you best utilize this space to showcase your initiative?
Proposals are not binding, as we expect projects to evolve in the lead-up to the fair.
Deadline: September 1, 2020
Eligibility: Non-commercial, contemporary, visual art initiatives, run by artists and/or independent cultural workers. Individual artists not connected to a larger initiative may register for the conference that will be held in connection to the fair, but are ineligible to exhibit in the main venue (Rå Hal, Godsbanen).
- Introduce your initiative (max. 1000 characters, with spaces)
- Propose a project (max. 1500 characters, with spaces)
- Answer the following two questions:
1) What is the most urgent question facing your initiative right now?
2) What aspect of the artist-run sector demands closer attention?
- Attach up to 5 relevant images, and links to your initiative’s website and social media
There is no application fee. However, selected initiatives will be required to pay a participation fee of 4.000 DKK (€535). This fee covers representation in Rå Hal, participation in the fair’s one-day conference about the artist-run sector, meetings with Nordic curators, a profile in the fair catalogue, and visibility on the fair’s online platforms. The Juxtapose team will provide letters of invitation in support of the selected initiative’s fundraising efforts.
Please submit your application by email in one PDF to: email@example.com
The application can be submitted in Danish or English.
All applicants will be notified of the results by November 1, 2020.
