The Craft Council of BC Installation program is meant to encourage customer interaction, excite curiosity, and add a focal point of interest to our space with the themes, ideas, and visual language that they present.
about the installation program
The CCBC Shop & Gallery Installation Program is intended to create a platform for artists to engage with customers by animating our shop space and inviting guests to explore the diversity of contemporary craft.
This is a chance for artists to explore a specific theme, tone or idea that not only considers technique and aesthetic, but responds to the space that the work is in and recognizes the importance of context within contemporary craft. We are seeking installations that utilize the space in a creative capacity that considers viewers outside and within to shop, and to engage and evoke discourse on the role of craft in a compact environment.
To distinguish the installation from the shop displays, and ensure a dynamic use of space, we encourage projects that use creative alternatives to traditional plinths. The installations are meant to encourage customer interaction, excite curiosity, and add a focal point of interest to our space with the themes, ideas and visual language that they present. There is a $200 CARFAC fee paid to the artist for the exhibition.
