Call for Proposals, Programme 2023 

Kunstpavillon & Neue Galerie Innsbruck | Tyrolean Artists‘ Association

SUBMISSION DEADLINE 10.06.2022

The Tyrolean Artists’ Association is a forum for art in Tyrol. It is a non-profit, politically independent association of fine artists in and from Tyrol. Currently, the association has just under 360 members. The purpose of the association, which has existed since 1946 and is based in Innsbruck, is to represent and support fine artists and their cultural, economic and social interests.

The Tyrolean Artists’ Association runs the Kunstpavillon, the Neue Galerie Innsbruck, and Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. While the main focus of the Kunstpavillon and the Neue Galerie is on exhibition activities, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen provides studios for artists living in Tyrol and hosts the Fellowship Programme for Art and Theory. In addition, for 14 years the association has been in charge of the Province of Tyrol’s campaign Art in Public Space. Through its various activities, the Tyrolean Artists’ Association promotes the instigation of qualified discourses on art and society in a local and global context. Another equally important task of the association is the representation of artists’ professional interests: the Tyrolean Artists’ Association plays a leading role throughout Austria in promoting fair pay for all those working in the arts sector (Fair Pay Agenda).

The exhibition program for the Kunstpavillon and the Neue Galerie is put together in the main by a jury of art professionals, selecting from submissions received in response to an open call. The call is sent to members of the association as well as to national and international artists and curators. The jury of professionals includes board members and the managing director/curator of Kunstpavillon and Neue Galerie Innsbruck.

Exhibition projects for the year 2023 can be submitted until 10.06.2022 via the online platform on the homepage of the Tyrolean Artists’ Association https://www.kuenstlerschaft.at/en/ or by sending it through the post (Tiroler Künstler:innenschaft, Kunstpavillon, Rennweg 8a, 6020 Innsbruck – Austria). Artists and curators from all artistic disciplines, media and practices are eligible to participate.

EXHIBITION VENUES

Kunstpavillon
The Kunstpavillon is located a few minutes’ walk from Innsbruck city centre, in the so-called Kleiner Hofgarten. The building was constructed in 1842 as the summer house of the provincial governor and adapted into a gallery with overhead lighting in 1950. The room measures approx. 175 m².

Neue Galerie Innsbruck
The Neue Galerie Innsbruck comprises 95 m² of exhibition space and is located on the ground floor of the Hofburg, the Imperial Palace of Innsbruck, at the entrance to Innsbruck’s old city
district. The historic vaults were thoroughly refurbished at the beginning of 2011. In contrast to the Kunstpavillon, the rooms can easily be darkened for projections.

Floor plans and images for download can be found on our homepage:
www.kuenstlerschaft.at/en/association/locations-and-plans/
Projects may also be conceived as interspatial, i.e. involving both exhibition venues equally; as well as including the Kunstpavillon’s terrace and roof, and the window fronts of the two galleries.


TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS
Technical equipment and materials from the inventory of both exhibition houses will be available free of charge, following consultation. Assistance with set-up and dismantling will be given by the technical team on site. A list of available technical equipment can be sent on request to office@kuenstlerschaft.at.

CURATORIAL & TECHNICAL PRODUCTION SUPPORT
Curatorial and technical production support will be given throughout the implementation of the projects. There will also be opportunities for outreach formats and an accompanying programme to the projects.
