Call for Submissions

SOFA SA is requesting artworks made with or derived from discarded materials found on the University of Manitoba campus. Participation is open to all. Experimentation with material, space and limits of the term ‘artwork’ is the goal. We are encouraging participants to reflect on the material’s origins on the university campus, its destination at 100 Higgins Ave., and the process of this displacement. Humour is welcome.

Submissions will be accepted until we run out of space.
