Call for Works 2017

The Auricle sonic arts gallery is currently calling for proposals for the Jan-Jun 2017 sonic arts exhibition programme. Situated in Central Christchurch, this artist run space has been established by the Cantabrian Society of Sonic Artists (CSSA) with funding from the Rāta FoundationChristchurch City Council and Creative New Zealand and is the South Island’s only dedicated sonic arts gallery.

As a small artist-run gallery (5m x 8m), the Auricle is suitable for individual or small group shows. We can currently offer artists octophonic and ambisonic playback, video screening and Max MSP 6 on OSX. The Auricle can also offer a modest artist fee, will assist with the install of sound works, and endeavour to accommodate the technical requirements of exhibiting artists as much as it can, but any equipment it is unable to source and extra set up costs will need to be covered by the artist’s funding.

While the call for submissions is ongoing, we are encouraging artists who wish to be considered for the first first half of the 2017’s programme to contact us by 1st Dec 2016. All submissions should be made to the CSSA’s curatorial panel at [hide_email exhibit@auricle.org.nz].

  • Your contact information – Name, Email Address, Phone Number and City / Country of Residence
  • Your CV and a brief bio / artist statement
