April 15, deadline for being recognized as an artist by the Quebec Government


Everyone and their mother thinks that it is fabulous and fantastic and amazing that 1% of the budget for any and all public buildings is dedicated to art - by law!

Well, if you want to be considered for any and all of the buildings currently going or those that will be built in the future you need to fill out this form.

Given that there are some mistakes in their list of galleries in Montreal (pdf alert) I can only guess at the other potential difficulties an artist would encounter in trying to become 'part of the scene.' Personally I much prefer, completely open calls and commissions. This set up smacks of government inbreeding that fosters bureaucratic art that nobody ends up paying any attention to after the press release has been issued.
