Call for proposals: Instagram residency

  • Dazibao 5455 Avenue de Gaspé Montréal, QC, H2T 3B3 Canada (map)

Deadline: May 15, 2018

Dazibao is pleased to offer a new residency opportunity!

Where: Dazibao's Instagram account (@dazibaomtl) *

When: From June 21 to August 18, 2018 (8 weeks)

What: Through a take-over of the organisation’s Instagram account, develop a new time-based artwork in consideration of the platform’s particularities and constraints.


We are in search of a project that:

― aligns itself with Dazibao’s mandate to further artistic experimentation and question modes of image making and dissemination within a contemporary social and cultural context;

― critically and innovatively addresses the Instagram platform as a means of creation and dissemination;

― commits to a minimum of one post per day for the entire duration of the residency. 


The project will be presented as part of Dazibao’s 2018-2019 programming year and will benefit from the financial and promotional support applicable to the centre’s regular activities.

All proposals must be submitted via the following online form. 

The selected artist or collective will be notified by May 17, 2018.

* Given the virtual nature of the residency, artists living abroad will not be required to travel to Montreal for the residency.
