The project will animate advertisement spaces around the city with the work of local BIPOC artists including but not limited to painters, photographers, ceramicists, mixed media, digital, video and installation artists. Successful applicants will be asked to submit a piece or body of work to be documented and exhibited as part of the experiential exhibition, through the use of AR technology hosted in the ad spaces. Artists will not need to make new work for the project. The project is open to individuals as well as collaborative partnerships/ collectives/ organizations that identify as “emerging”. Applicants must be Toronto/GTA based.
