The Collection Loto-Québec invites professional artists working in the visual arts to submit a complete portfolio as part of the Collection’s contemporary artwork acquisitions program. The invitation also extends to galleries and artists’ agents. All portfolios consisting of contemporary art, photography, paintings, sculptures, engravings, drawings and collages are eligible.
The artist’s contact information (address, phone number, E-mail address)
An updated curriculum vitae
An artist’s statement
A visual record of the works (no more than 10) clearly labelled and numbered, along with a descriptive list (the name of the artist, along with the number, title, medium, dimensions, year of production and price of the work).
All content related to the submission, including texts and images, must be contained on a single CD:
This acquisitions program is limited by the physical constraints of the premises where the works are displayed. The physical conditions under which the artwork needs to be stored, as well as the work’s size, will be taken into consideration and may potentially affect the likelihood of their being acquired.
Each portfolio received is analyzed by the Collection’s curator. Incomplete portfolios, those sent by E-mail, those submitted as a PowerPoint presentation or those contained on DVD will not be accepted. However, DVDs may be used to contain JPG images of the works.
Please send your complete portfolio to:
La Collection Loto-Québec
500 Sherbrooke Street West, 14th Floor
Montréal, Québec H3A 3G6
Please note that your portfolio will not be returned to you.
