Oxygen Art Centre is currently accepting project proposals for an installation project in the facility’s bathroom.

Applicants are encouraged to submit project proposals expressing interest specifically for the bathroom installation project. The installation will be on view for one-year and must be functional. Eligible artists and collectives must live and work in the Columbia Basin and have access to Oxygen’s facility during the installation period.

Oxygen supports exhibitions and projects that engage our mandate in exciting and challenging ways. We welcome project proposals in a variety of mediums that are suitable for a functioning bathroom.

Artists should anticipate spending 20 to 25 minutes completing the application form. The application requests an artist bio, short project proposal, and a selection of images representing the artist’s practice or vision for the installation.

Successful artist(s) will be notified by July 20, 2023 and will be compensated according to CARFAC rates. They will also have access to materials, tools, and support necessary to complete the proposed installation.

The installation period is to occur from July 31, 2023, to August 16, 2023, at the Oxygen Art Centre facility. The final installation will be on view for one-year, from August 16, 2023, to August 16, 2024.

For more information about the application process, the bathroom project, and how to apply, please visit Oxygen’s website. Please forward any questions to info@oxygenartcentre.org

The Call for Proposals to the Bathroom Installation Project is open from June 23, 2023, to July 12, 2023, at 5:00 PM. Proposals are to be submitted via the Google Forms available through Oxygen’s website.

This project is generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
