Contemporary Calgary welcomes submissions on an ongoing basis from artists and curators who wish to exhibit with us.

Our curatorial team regularly reviews submissions, however due to the number of submissions received it is not possible to send a personal response to all applicants. As such, only those considered for exhibition will be contacted. All artists selected for exhibition will be paid fees in accordance with the recommended fee schedule set out by CARFAC.


Digital submissions are preferred. If submitting hard copies, please mail them to the attention of the Curatorial Department at Contemporary Calgary, 117 8 Avenue SW, Calgary, Canada, T2P 1B4. Please do not send original artwork. Hard copy submissions will not be returned.
Please email all submission material with the subject line "Submission: Artist/Curator Name" to submissions@contemporarycalgary.com . All material should be compressed into a single zip file with the file name formatted as CC_Submission_ArtistName.zip
If your file is too large to send by email, please transfer using WeTransfer or comparable large file sharing service, and send a corresponding email to confirm receipt.  
All submissions must include:
  • Maximum 750 word artist statement / letter of intent detailing your overall practice and the project you wish to exhibit (PDF format).
  • Current CV (PDF format).
  • Maximum of fifteen pieces of support material (any combination of images, videos, audio files, etc. Images should be in JPG format at a maximum of 150 dpi. When possible, web links to audio and video files are preferred).
