Boxed In

A box.

A bit of a strange beginning for an art exhibition, but there you go.

Stemming from a consideration of the size of a country like Canada and the difficulties in bringing together the works from across the country, the Boxed In! exhibition has been created. Small sculptural works that fit in a box  measuring 16 x 12 x 12 inches, the idea is the works must fit including the packaging  and be derived from a box itself. Since a box is a container, hiding the contents, obscuring them from the outside world plays into the intent behind the proposed works.

Deadline for works is June 30th. Here’s the rundown on the specifics. Proposed work should fit in a box no bigger than 16 x 12 x 12
inches, without altering the box. The proposal should be for a work of expression, functional or not, that pushes the limits of your practice within a conceptual approach.

Your application must include the attached completed form, a half to one page proposal, artist statement, drawings or sketches of the
proposed work and its technical information (medium, finished size,presentation), CV or resume (maximum of three pages), up to ten digital images of recent works (no earlier than 2005) and a list of images. For information on submission check out The Rooms or email

Submissions should be sent to the following address:
Denis Longchamps, curator
Boxed in!  Exhibition Project
The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery
9 Bonaventure Avenue P.O. Box 1800, Station C St. John’s, NL, Canada
A1C 5P9
