Institution: IDB Cultural Center

The Cultural Center of the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington DC, calls for artists of Latin-American and Caribbean descent, who now live in Canada as legal residents for at least one year; to submit a portfolio of their artwork for an exhibition that reflects the emigration of artists from that Region to Canada and their contribution to contemporary Canadian art.

The exhibit will be held at the IDB Cultural Center Art Gallery in Washington, DC, United States of America, in the Fall of 2009.

Artists interested in participating in this exhibit must submit a portfolio with the following material: a) A statement about the interests of the artist, related to his/her work. b) The artist's résumé (not longer than two pages) including all relevant information about his/ her artistic trajectory; c) Up to ten (10) images of works available for the exhibition. Works should not exceed 6 feet in any direction in the case of two-dimensional works (painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media) or 4 feet in any direction for three-dimensional works. Video art should not exceed 10 minutes in length. Installations, multimedia works or performances will not be accepted.

The portfolios must be comprehensive of the artist's work, and will not be returned. The deadline for submission of portfolios at the IDB Cultural Center is April 30, 2009.

All submissions must be mailed to Félix Ángel, IDB Cultural Center, 1300 New York Avenue, Washington, DC 20577, USA. The artist selected will be notified on May 30, 2009.
