Booooooom, in partnership with Capture Photography Festival, is accepting submissions of lens-based work for the King Edward Canada Line Station in Vancouver.
You can learn more about the open-call here: https://www.booooooom.com/2019/10/28/booooooom-x-capture-photography-festival-public-art-open-call/
This is a worldwide open call for an artist or artist group to have their work installed on the facade of the station from April to September 2020. The artist will participate in the 2020 Capture Photography Festival and their work will be featured on the Capture Website and in the 2020 Capture Catalogue, 6,000 copies of which are distributed throughout the Lower Mainland. The artist will also be featured in article(s) on Booooooom.com. The artist will be paid a fee of $600 CAD (adhering to standard CARFAC fees for temporary public art works in Canada).
The artwork will be installed on the large windows on the front of the station alongside an artist statement. The 3 images you see here are each placed on a 97″x 94″ section with 1.5″ vertical gaps between each section. The three sections combined have a total area of 294″ x 94″ which can be used to display one large image across all the panels or a series of images. You may submit a single work or a related series of works. If you want to submit multiple works that are not related, please make multiple submissions, as multiple images in one entry will be considered as a single body of work, and the jury will take into consideration cohesiveness.
Entries are free for Booooooom and Capture Photography Festival members. All entries by non-members are subject to a fee of $10 USD paid at the time of submission.

All entries will be reviewed by Jeff Hamada, Editor-in-Chief of Booooooom, to identify a shortlist. This list will be reviewed by a jury of Capture Photography Festival and Boooooooom staff who will mutually agree upon a finalist. The chosen artist or artist group will be announced mid-January 2020.
Deadline for submissions: November 25, 2019
