For the 2024 installation, the artwork will be installed on the five windows of the Broadway–City Hall Canada Line Station that face Cambie St. The works will be printed on 60/40 vinyl and a didactic panel with information on the work will be placed alongside the installation. The five windows can be used to display one large horizontal image across all the panels or a series of five images. For reference, here is Soloman Chiniquay and jaz whitford’s work installed at this station as part of Capture 2023.
You may submit a single work or a related series of works. If you want to submit multiple works that are not related to each other, please make multiple submissions, as multiple images in one entry will be considered as a single body of work, and the jury will take into consideration cohesiveness.
Please note we cannot publicly display images of people. As per InTransitBC Public Art Installation Policy: any depiction of graffiti, weapons, smoking, alcohol and drug paraphernalia, religious messages, corporate logos, or of individuals or groups within an artwork is not permitted
