World of Threads Festival 2014

Deadline: April 22, 2014 (EMAIL)

World of Threads Festival 2014

Oakville & Toronto, Ontario
November 1 to November 30, 2014

Artists from around the world are invited to submit bodies of work, installations or individual pieces to the festival. Multiple curators will draw from the submissions to create different exhibitions. Rather than having predetermined curatorial ideas, we are going to develop thematic shows entirely out of the work we receive. In Festival 2012 we curated using this process and it worked very successfully. Your artwork could potentially inspire an entire exhibition.

Artist Eligibility

• We are open to artists from all countries.
• All artwork must have been made after Jan. 2012 (the date of our last call for submissions)
• All work must be available for exhibition during the Festival: Nov. 1 - Nov. 30, 2014 and the two weeks prior and after these dates for installation and take down.
• No entry can be withdrawn from the exhibition once it has been accepted.
• All work must be original – No patterns or commercial kits are acceptable.
• Artists cover the cost of shipping.

How to Submit

Three Options for Submitting
• Body of Work – Maximum 10 pieces + details.
