Duration & Dialogue II


The Duration & Dialogue Collective is proud to announce a call for submissions for the Duration & Dialogue II Performance Art Festival, running from January 27 to the 29th 2017. 

Curated by Natasha Bailey, Dario Del Degan, and Johannes Zits, this call invites performance artist, from any discipline, to submit ideas that explore the theme of “duration” within a maximum time frame of 12 hours. Live and streamed works are welcome.

To enlarge the focus on performance art and to further promote the dialogue of aesthetics within our contemporary context, artists participating in this festival will be paired with a moderator to lead a post-performance discussion with audience members.

Proposals should include:

-a CV-an artist statement
-a detailed description of the work you wish to present or explore
-any relevant support material

Please send files as PDFs. You may include images, videos, print, or digital documentation of your work as links, PDFs, or image files. Please be courteous of image size and materials that you are sending. Ensure that attachments total to less than 10MB; if more space is required for time-based or multimedia work, you may provide a link to a Dropbox.

Send your proposal by email to info@katzmancontemporary.com with a subject line of Duration & Dialogue II.

This year we are happy to have received support from the Ontario Arts Council and as such will be offering a modest artist fee.

The deadline for submissions is FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2016 by midnight. Artists selected to participate will be contacted by Monday, October 17, 2016 by 5:00pm.
