About > Art Metropole

Art Metropole is a not-for-profit organisation with a focus on the production, dissemination and contextualisation of artist-initiated publication in any media, especially those formats and practices predisposed to sharing and circulation.

Art Metropole accepts submissions of artists' books, editions and multiples in any media. Please click the link and fill out the form to submit your work for consideration. Submissions are juried monthly by staff. Due to the high volume of submissions, we are only able to respond to successful applicants. If you have questions about the submissions form or process, please contact [javascript protected email address].

Art Metropole was founded in 1974 by the artists' collective General Idea as an artist-run centre. Art Metropole is a not-for-profit corporation incorporated under the laws of the province of Ontario and a registered charitable organization.

Further information on the history of Art Metropole can be found in the Art Metropole Collection available online and to the public at the National Gallery of Canada Library as well as on the Archive maintained on this site.
