    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

    Establishments, institutions, public areas, domestic spaces, even ephemeral situations carry with them protocols with which we are asked to comply as we encounter, enter, or pass through them. Our contemporary understanding of “protocol” is as “an official procedure or system of rules governing affairs or behaviours.” However, early definitions of the term—a provisional draft, a working manuscript—imply its opposite.

    We invite submissions of recent or proposed work from students active in any and all media, to be considered for inclusion in an exhibition project investigating this expanded space of protocol, collaboratively curated by the students of Emily Carr University’s AHIS 401 Topics in Curatorial Projects.
