Welcome to the CAN Triennial 2022 Open Call for Art.
CAN Triennial: “You Are Here” is a multi-venue exhibition organized in collaboration with a intergenerational, diverse team of curators from a range of institutional affiliations. The curatorial team will assemble more than a dozen exhibitions that will, at times, examine place and location, and at other times skewer notions of culture and politics, and will also map to discussions around presence and loss. Together, these exhibitions will give us an experiential journey through the literal geography of our city, and the ever-complicated situational understandings of place, context, identity, and action.
Curators will select 70-100 artists from the region. Media include but not limited to: painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, mixed media, etc.
● Artists must be living or working in Cuyahoga or a surrounding counties: Cuyahoga, Geauga, Summit, Lake, Lorain, Medina, and Portage
● Curators will choose for the exhibit art that has not been shown before. In the application, artists can submit examples of past work.
The application is open from June 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021. We will notify artists by the end of 2021. CAN Triennial will take place July and August 2022 in more than a dozen galleries around Cleveland, Ohio.
