TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary accepts submissions IN AN ELECTRONIC FORMAT ONLY.  Please send all written support as a single PDF and images in JPEG form on one CD. DVDs may be included for video documentation. Please do not send any paper or include a return envelope. Please do not email submissions.


TRUCK welcomes proposals for new or recent work by contemporary artists, artist collectives, curators or collaborations practicing within and/or across disciplines and media. To gain a greater understanding of the gallery and programming please review our past exhibitions.

TRUCK currently facilitates exhibitions and projects in three venues: the Main Gallery, +15 Window Space, and CAMPER. TRUCK aims to support a wide range of artistic practices, we encourange submissions for offsite projects by artists whose work is not easily presented within a traditional gallery space. Please follow the guidelines for submissions carefully and include all neccessary items to ensure your submission will be reviewed!


Selection Procedure:

Proposals are selected through a peer review process by the TRUCK Programming Committee. The Committee is comprised of board members who have extensive visual, performance, and media art backgrounds. Proposals will be selected based on consideration of the following criteria: artistic merit of the proposed project, fit with TRUCK Gallery’s mandate, feasibility of the proposed budget, and the ability of TRUCK Gallery to provide appropriate space/support for the project. TRUCK is committed to paying a minimum of CARFAC fees, and when possible provides travel support for our exhibiting artists. Unfortunately TRUCK has limited resources and is unable to consider projects that require production support.  We will endeavor to provide what assistance where we can for the presentation and exhibition of work, but operate within our meager resources.
