Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week aka |FAT| is looking for contemporary artists working in photography, video, installation art, performance art, dance, music and design to showcase their work in the upcoming festival in April 2011.

In it’s sixth year, Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week exhibits photography, short films, videos and large projections from over 50 emerging and acclaimed, national and international artists annually. In addition, we showcase cutting-edge, dynamic and forward-looking performances from performance artists, fashion designers, musicians and dancers along side sculptures, installations and large multimedia art works that reflect on the notion of the body, clothing and fashion.

Starting this month, those who are interested in participating can download applications through our website:

We are currently accepting proposals in:

  • Photography
  • Video
  • Performance Art
  • Installation/ Sculpture
  • Dance
  • Fashion Design
  • Music

* Submitted proposals should reflect on the notion of clothing, the body, fashion and the 2011 theme “Fashion Schematics”

Thematic Approach:
The 2011 theme “Fashion Schematics” explores the messages, systems, schemes, symbols and concepts inherent in the notion of fashion, through photography, video, fashion design, performance, installation and music. The festival will look at the ways we create visual dialogues and make sense of the world through fashion and creative expression. “Fashion Schematics” will examine how we build the systems in which we function, the strategies we use in creating our identities and the messages we convey through codes, currencies and narratives.
