We are proud to announce that Anna Sprague and Emily Lawrence will be our curators for the 10th edition of Nocturne! More on this awesome team and their plans for Nocturne 2017 soon! 

Our theme this year: VANISH

Here are some thoughts about this year’s theme from our curatorial duo: 

As a curatorial premise, the term Vanish alludes to both the ephemeral nature of the Nocturne experience and the shifting focus that occurs as new or forgotten memories are transposed over prevalent narratives and pasts. Vanish is not erasure or removal, but an act of distancing or blurring. Vanish is slow magic — a camera lens slowly adjusting its focus. In 2017, as we usher in a year punctuated with celebrations of significant moments in Canadian history, it is important to take time to reflect on the complex nature of cultural remembrance.  As a means to creatively disrupt the dominant narratives that have come to define the city’s complex history, Vanish seeks to re-envision familiar public spaces throughout  Halifax and Dartmouth as phantasmagoric alternative realities. 

You can read more about the theme by clicking here.

Now that we have our theme, we are ready to open the call to artists! We have updated our application process this year in the hopes that it makes things easier for you. If you are having ANY difficulties at all please email us at [email protected].

The deadline for artists to apply is June 11th, 2017 and artists will be notified by July 1st, 2017 on the status of their application.
