/ Trois-Rivières (Québec)
 
 Le Centre de Diffusion Presse Papier recherche des artistes ou des groupes d’artistes, dont la production et la recherche en art actuel se manifeste par l’utilisation de l’estampe, en tout ou en partie, dans l’élaboration de leur œuvre. Le Centre de diffusion est aussi ouvert aux propositions de commissaires qui voudraient présenter des projets qui tournent autour de l’estampe, de son développement et de son utilisation comme moyen d’expression actuel.

Une attention particulière sera portée aux dossiers* qui feront état d’une recherche de nouvelles formes d’utilisation de l’estampe. Cette recherche peut revêtir plusieurs aspects :

L’actualité des sujets de recherche
L’œuvre installative utilisant l’estampe
L’hybridité des moyens d’expression
La recherche sur les techniques de l’estampe
Le mélange des techniques
Les nouvelles avenues du livre d’artiste
L’estampe comme moyen d’expression social
Le questionnement sur l’identité de l’estampe
* Tous les candidats doivent soumettre un dossier de présentation pour voir leur proposition présentée au jury. Un dossier incomplet pourra nuire à l’évaluation de la demande.

Le dossier de présentation doit inclure :

Un projet d’exposition (résumé en 400 mots ou moins)
Un curriculum vitae (5 pages maximum) ou une présentation du groupe
Un dossier de presse (5 pages maximum) facultatif
De 10 à 15 reproductions numériques (Format JPG, max.1000/1000pixels ; max.100dpi)
Veuillez noter que les artistes choisis doivent attendre un minimum de 5 ans avant de refaire une demande d’exposition.

Les documents proposés n’ont pas obligatoirement à montrer les œuvres à exposer. Ils doivent cependant être le reflet assez juste de la direction que l’artiste entend donner à la présentation qu’il fera au Centre de diffusion.

Les documents peuvent être envoyés par la poste* ou par courrier électronique.

* Les dossiers soumis par courrier ne seront pas retournés aux artistes à moins qu’une enveloppe préaffranchie soit incluse dans la demande.

Folie/Culture

Pour la dernière année de notre thématique Marchez sur des œufs !, Folie/Culture appelle à la déraison pour qu’advienne une réflexion sur les nouvelles formes de contention. Ainsi, l’organisme se délectera de l’imparfait, du monstre et de ses aléas et posera davantage un regard sur l’injonction à l’exemplaire dans nos sociétés de contrôle.

Par cette thématique, Folie/Culture tente de répondre notamment à ces questions : Qu’en est-il des formes d’expression des gens hors normes, sous le diktat de l’exemplaire ? Que peut-il advenir dans un monde où rien ne devrait être bousculé ? Quelles seraient les formes d’art qui s’autoanéantissent elles-mêmes par rigueur éthique ? Comment aborder certaines tensions sociales par l’art sous l’égide de la culture du commentaire et du regard bienfaisant des pair.e.s artistes ? À l’ère du tout profilé, du tout contrôlé, qu’advient-il de l’art à engagement politique et son potentiel contestataire ? Croulant sous d’innombrables charges qu’amène notre système néolibéraliste et face à l’épuisement et à la médicamentation qui en découlent, comment pouvons-nous raisonnablement dire ?

Par ce triple appel, l’un pour le programme d’artiste assigné.e à résidence, l’autre pour un événement multidisciplinaire collectif et le dernier pour la Minute vidéo, Folie/Culture n’hésitera pas à casser bien des œufs.

Veuillez prendre note qu’il est possible de proposer un dossier pour un, deux ou trois de ces programmes.

DATE LIMITE 15 MARS 2020­­­­

Artiste assigné.e à résidence est une initiative qui prend forme sur un an. Pendant ces douze mois, un.e artiste est invité.e à créer autour de notre thématique Marchez sur des œufs ! Ainsi, l’artiste assigné.e à résidence bénéficie d’un soutien et d’une diffusion tout au long de ladite résidence, mais sans être pour autant enfermé.e dans un lieu précis.

« Assigné.e à résidence » est un terme utilisé en droit pour qualifier une personne devant demeurer en résidence sous surveillance, une peine accablant non pas uniquement les condamné.e.s, mais bien un ensemble d’individus de la société coincés chez eux pour des raisons économiques ou de santé mentale. Être artiste assigné.e à résidence est une joie et une peine à purger pendant un an durant lequel l’artiste – conjointement avec Folie/Culture – est amené.e à réaliser des projets où bon lui semble, comme bon lui semble.

L’artiste sera convié.e à travailler avec l’équipe de Folie/Culture pour présenter une intervention d’ouverture ou de mi-parcours ainsi que de fermeture, entre autres.

Cachet d’artiste : 2250 $ Remboursement de matériel : 500 $ Per diem et hébergement compris pour deux événements, l’un d’ouverture et l’autre de fermeture de résidence.

Documents à faire parvenir à programmation [arobas] folieculture [point] org : Un échéancier et une courte description de votre projet potentiel ; Votre démarche d’artiste (500 mots) ; Votre curriculum vitae d’artiste (3 pages maximum) ; Un dossier visuel de 10 images maximum ; Tout document complémentaire relatif à votre proposition de résidence.

Si vous désirez proposer un dossier pour l’appel d’artiste assigné.e à résidence, veuillez n’inscrire que le mot résidence dans l’objet de votre courriel.

DATE LIMITE 15 MARS 2020­­­­

En guise de clôture de notre programmation, Folie/Culture désire produire un événement multidisciplinaire et collectif présentant des œuvres inédites d’artistes de tous acabits. Ainsi, nos critères de sélection pour cet événement seront : Les liens possibles avec la thématique Marchez sur des œufs ! L’aspect déjanté, hors norme et original de la proposition. La mise en relation possible avec d’autres propositions en vue d’un événement collectif. La conjugaison possible entre votre proposition et des problématiques sociales. La qualité de la proposition. Les propositions recueillies pourront être présentées dans un espace de galerie ou encore dans un espace public, lors d’une soirée évènementielle ou encore dans tout autre contexte. Ainsi, Folie/Culture élaborera un contexte d’événement qui mariera le mieux les différentes propositions.

Cachet d’artistes : 500 $

Per diem, déplacement et hébergement compris.

Documents à faire parvenir à programmation [arobas] folieculture [point] org    Une présentation de projet (500 mots maximum) ; Votre démarche artistique (500 mots maximum) ; Votre curriculum vitae d’artiste (3 pages maximum) ; Un dossier visuel de 10 images maximum ; Tout document complémentaire relatif à votre projet. Si vous désirez proposer un dossier pour l’événement multidisciplinaire collectif, veuillez n’inscrire que le mot événement dans l’objet de votre courriel.

DATE LIMITE 15 MARS 2020­­­­

Folie/Culture récidive avec son invitation pour la Minute vidéo. L’organisme propose à tous les artistes professionnel.le.s ou amateur.rice.s, membres, proches et intervenant.e.s du milieu social de réaliser une vidéo d’une durée d’une minute suivant notre thématique Marchez sur des œufs !

Les Minutes vidéo sélectionnées seront projetées à l’occasion d’une soirée publique dans le cadre de notre programmation 2020-2021. Tel que susmentionné, Folie/Culture s’intéressera à la déraison et, à son opposé, la retenue lors de la sélection des propositions.

Pour participer, il suffit de réaliser une vidéo d’une minute exactement qui aborde le thème Marchez sur des œufs ! et la faire parvenir à programmation [arobas] folieculture [point] org.

Aucun générique n’est accepté et seule la musique originale ou libre de droits est admise.

Cachet d’artiste : 75 $

Si vous désirez proposer un dossier pour la Minute vidéo, veuillez n’inscrire que le mot minute dans l’objet de votre courriel.

Images Festival Call for OFF SCREEN & LIVE Submissions

Images Festival is pleased to open our call for OFF SCREEN and LIVE submissions that accepts program and exhibition proposals for cinema screenings and gallery exhibitions on a rolling basis.

Proposals will be reviewed in the summer and early fall over an extended period of planning as the festival’s program and presenting partnerships begin to take form.

Proposals received in one review cycle may not be conceptually complementary or logistically possible for the upcoming festival year. However, the removal of a fixed submission deadline allows Images to consider proposals in greater depth, assess capacity, and prepare to seek funding and partnerships to meaningfully support the realisation of the presentations.

ABOUT IMAGES FESTIVAL

Images Festival annually exhibits film and video installations, media-based performances, and online work alongside its ON SCREEN program of film and video works. For the OFF SCREEN and LIVE segments of the festival, Images partners with GTA-based galleries, production centres, and other organizations.

Images presents work that counters dominant mainstream narratives and provides alternative ways of thinking and seeing that expands the understanding of media art through our programming and education-based initiatives.

Images Festival does not select films based on any particular themes, genres or aesthetic categories but selects moving image works that share formal and political sensibilities which emerge from recent critical discourses between contemporary art, cinema and media arts.

DATES

The 33rd edition of Images Festival will take place between April 16 to 22, 2020.

Southern Alberta Art Gallery (SAAG) Submission Guidelines Exhibition proposals are accepted throughout the year and reviews are ongoing.  Selection is carried out over a period of time through studio visits and correspondence with artists and curators in whom the gallery has an interest.  Those interested in proposing their work to SAAG are asked to include with their submission : a curriculum vitae, an artist statement and/or letter of intent, a wide selection of images, and other relevant support material. Submissions should be mailed to :

Southern Alberta Art Gallery 601 3rd Ave. S. Lethbridge, Alberta T1J 0H4

The gallery will not return your submission – please do not send original artworks or valuable materials.   Given the large number of submissions received by the gallery, formal letters of reply will only be issued to proposals of immediate interest.

Exhibitions are generally six weeks in length.  An opening is held to introduce the work to the public.  Artists are also invited to give an illustrated lecture on their work in conjunction with the University of Lethbridge Faculty of Fine Art during the academic year.  Other special events (workshops, panel discussions, etc.) are considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Southern Alberta Art Gallery pays CARFAC fees, shipping and insurance, and often seeks funding to produce catalogues for the exhibition.  All publications, including our quarterly newsletter GALLERY (which discusses and reproduces work by exhibiting artists along with other programming), are exchanged with other institutions in Canada and abroad.

The Southern Alberta Art Gallery fosters the work of contemporary artists who challenge boundaries, encourages broad public engagement and promotes awareness and exploration of artistic expression.  Our work extends to local, national and international communities.

Les inscriptions pour les 33es Instants Vidéo 2020 sont ouvertes !

Bonjour, la 33e édition du festival Les Instants Vidéo débutera en novembre 2020 (exposition, projections, performances…) à Marseille à la Friche la Belle de Mai et dans d’autres lieux de la ville. Comme chaque année, le festival se déroulera aussi dans d’autres villes de France ou à l’étranger. Chaque lieu recevra une programmation spécifique. Le texte d’Appel à candidaturesqui suit fait état des questions que l’équipe des Instants Vidéo se pose en ce moment. Il ne s’agit pas d’une thématique. Chaque artiste a le choix d’en tenir compte ou pas.

33e FESTIVAL LES INSTANTS VIDEO Novembre 2020 – Marseille (et ailleurs) APPEL A PARTICIPATION – Date limite : 5 juin 2020

La beauté d’un geste éperdu (un appel dédié à Annie Le Brun qui nous a fait ressentir la beauté profonde du mot éperdu) Le monde s’est enlaidi. Les guerres avec leurs cortèges de ruines et de cadavres, la misère galopante, les forêts et les océans maltraités, de ce côté là, rien de nouveau sous le soleil. La laideur inédite résulte d’une épidémie bien plus violente que la peste : la marchandisation de la quasi-totalité du monde. Une guerre menée contre tout ce dont on ne peut extraire de la valeur, une guerrecontre la passion et la vie déraisonnable. Une guerre contre le désir et les corps sans lesquels il ne peut y avoir de pensée. Si l’art fit longtemps figure d’exception, déployant ses innombrables formes habitées par le désir indomptable, force est de constater que dans sa forme dite « contemporaine » il est de moins en moins possible de le distinguer des esthétiques de pacotille qu’imposent à notre regard et à notre ouïe l’omniprésence uniforme de la marchandise. Nos corps, nos villes et nos musées d’art contemporain, partout dans le monde exposent les mêmes objets, les mêmes images, les mêmes marques, les mêmes signes, transformant la planète en un immense parc d’attraction puérile ou en une immense zone commerciale digne d’un aéroport. Plutôt que d’habiter poétiquement le monde, nous sommes en transit, des morts en permission, des objets consommables et jetables. Nous habitons l’empire de la positivité marchande d’où doivent être bannis objection, lutte, heurt ou conflit. Or, nous signale William Morris, la laideur n’est pas neutre ; elle agit sur l’homme et détériore sa sensibilité, au point qu’il ne ressent même pas sa dégradation, ce qui le prépare à descendre encore d’un cran. La pensée n’est pas à l’écart de cette globalisation de la médiocrité. Elle s’est lâchement adaptée à notre époque consommatrice d’insignifiance. Les conséquences sont terrifiantes. Les corps sont les premiers à en pâtir, pétrifiés par les eaux glaciales du calcul égoïste, ils gisent mutilés, réduits à la plus simple expression de leur valeur marchande, de leur capacité à générer du profit. Ils n’ont plus qu’une seule liberté, celle d’obéir. Ils n’ont plus qu’un seul horizon, s’accoutumer à la laideur. Dans l’œil du cyclone de l’horreur économique, qui est la pire des catastrophes climatiques, SURGISSENT là où on ne les attend pas des météorologues du désir. Ce sont les féroces poètes, les femmes et les hommes dont la mesure est à hauteur de leurs débordements, qui par un geste foudroyant nous libèrent de plusieurs siècles de domestication et de résignation folle, en tentant d’affranchir l’imagination par un long, immense, raisonné dérèglement de tous les sens comme nous y invite Rimbaud. Ce geste lève le voile d’une beauté à réinventer. Il est le trait d’union entre la nécessité érotique de nos corps et la nécessité critique de la poésie et des images. Ce sont ces gestes météorites que le festival souhaite saisir à leur passage.

Luminous Bodies is a two-week residency to create artworks that shed new light on the human body. Its goal is to reinvent and re-present the body in most inclusive and diverse ways. Resident artist talks, gallery tours, visual and textual references, guest artist talks, and regular critiques (individual with Facilitator and group critiques) help uncover how our bodies are culturally and aesthetically constructed, displayed and controlled. Residents work individually or collaboratively to create artworks that reinvent the body through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance, installation, sound, movement, media art, etc. There will be a closing exhibition of artworks created during the residency (if preferred, artists may show in open studio fashion). The essence of Luminous Bodies is about bringing to light heterogeneous bodies. It welcomes people in all walks of life into a creative journey of critical innovation and self-discovery. People with disabilities, people of colour and diverse gender identifications are encouraged to apply.

Artscape Gibraltar Point is an artist retreat nestled against the magnificent natural backdrop of Toronto Island. It offers a distraction-free environment to focus on art creation, and a rich potential for the creation of corporeal artworks amongst its blue-flag beaches (one of them being clothing optional) and natural surroundings of Lake Ontario, forests and gardens filled with flowers, fruit and vegetables. On the island, there are tiny quaint homes, a historic lighthouse, a hobby farm and antique carnival grounds. Cozy up in a furnished studio and bedroom (private or shared), and enjoy amenities such as a fully equipped common kitchen, shared bathrooms, laundry facilities and wireless Internet. AGP is a barrier free and inclusive environment. The Toronto city core is just a 15-minute ferry ride away.

Certains logements sont spécifiquement adaptés à l’activité artistique : la Cité internationale dispose de deux ateliers-logements pour artistes plasticiens et six studios avec cabine insonorisée pour les musiciens. Les différentes maisons de la Cité internationale peuvent également accueillir des artistes et professionnels de la culture en fonction de la disponibilité de leurs logements (sans espace de travail). Le tarif des logements varient selon le type, le confort et la durée du séjour.

Si votre nationalité est représentée par une maison de la Cité internationale, renseignez-vous auprès d’elle pour connaître la démarche à suivre. Cf. http://www.ciup.fr “les maisons”.

Si cette maison représentant votre nationalité n’a pas de disponibilité, votre demande pourra être transmise aux autres maisons de la CIUP, sous réserve de la validation de la demande par la CIUP.

Les statuts de la cité prévoient en effet que pour y être admis, la venue de l’artiste doit s’inscrire dans le cadre d’un projet précis soutenu institutionnellement (venue sur invitation d’une structure culturelle française, ou sur envoi d’une structure culturelle du pays de résidence de l’artiste, pour une réalisation spécifique).

Call to Artists : Temporary Floating Public Art, Waterfront Toronto

Call to Artists : Temporary Floating Public Art Harbour Square Park Basin, Toronto

Opportunity

Waterfront Toronto is seeking to commission a professional artist or artist team to create a temporary floating artwork for Harbour Square Park Basin. Artists are asked to submit proposals for installation during summer 2020. The artwork will activate the basin by engaging with the local community and visitors to the waterfront.

Harbour Square Park is located on the shore of Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America. Containing one-fifth of all surface freshwater on Earth, the lakes are a vital source of drinking water and food. Throughout history these interconnected bodies of water have been critically important for trade, human settlement and migration. They are sacred to the First Peoples, who have inhabited the shores and fished in their waters since time immemorial. The lakes’ unique ecosystems are host to a diverse array of plants and animals, and their shores and waters provide recreation for millions of people.

Today, multipoint pollution, climate change, over-extraction, invasive species, and wetland loss are all taking a toll on their watersheds. Water scarcity, often perpetuated by climate change, is one of the most pressing global challenges today, particularly in its relationship to migration. It is imperative we remain engaged with the importance of these waters and with the challenges they face.

With this context in mind, artists are asked to develop work that explores water as a connector. They should consider the history and importance of these waterways and their role as geographical, ecological, political, economic, social, and spiritual connectors.

General Submission Requirements

Waterfront Toronto is inviting practicing professional artists to include in their submission :

  • Artist statement
  • Images of proposed artwork
  • Proposed budget breakdown and schedule
  • Images of previous and relevant work
  • Artist CV
  • References
  • Submission Form

This is a one-stage competition. Submissions will be reviewed by an independent jury convened for this project. Waterfront Toronto intends to identify one successful Proponent to undertake this project.

Budget

The total commissioning budget is $45,000 CAD +HST. This includes all artist fees, design costs, materials, shipping, installation and removal, insurance and permits.

Vol. 25, No. 8 : ‘Training Utopias’ (December 2020)

Issue editors :

Felipe Cervera, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore

Elizabeth de Roza, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore

Michael Earley, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore

For those of us whose relationship to popular culture is always marked by aesthetic and sexual antagonism, these stages are our actual utopian rehearsal rooms, where we work on a self that does not conform to the mandates of cultural logics such as late capitalism, heteronormativity, and, in some cases, white supremacy’.

José Esteban Muñoz (2009), Cruising Utopia : The then and there of queer futurity, p.111

Training is utopic. In principle, we train to become, to improve, to upgrade or simply, to be better. Who determines what is this ‘better’ ? We train in various ways and forms, and our training utopias are multiple and different. We train to become citizens, artists, educators as much as we also train in the military, camps and corporations. The world is made in the entanglement of multiple utopias and the trainings they demand. However, the materiality of the world and of the body are often a mismatch to the vision any training predicates. Indeed, the milieu in which a training system is implemented may amplify or undermine its practice. In the moment of implementation, utopian visions are also disturbed by the same socio-cultural milieu that shaped their imaginary. The tension between thinking and doing training is where the world happens. We train to embody multiple non-places in their utopic unbecoming. And yet, we continue to train and be trained.

Places, venues and institutions of training may be taken as heterotopias (Foucault 1967). In these places, the meaning of having a body has historically changed in relation to the function that the space is attributed within larger sociologies of practice. Sometimes, these places host the training needed for military, corporate and social engineering. In other times, however, they host practices that aim to explicitly contest a given spatial and temporal normativity. In theatre and performance, training venues have often been thought of along these lines, as a place that unsettles the normative spatial and temporal logics, and where intense training can take place and utopic attitudes maintained. Examples abound – especially during the twentieth century : Edward Gordon Craig’s short-lived training school at the Arena Goldoni in Florence (1912–13), the Staatliches Bauhaus, Kerala Kalamandalam, Moscow Art Theatre studio, the Group Theatre, Black Mountain College, various lab theatres modelled on Grotowski’s Polish Lab Theatre and Odin Teatret and Tadashi Suzuki’s training centre in Toga are but a few examples of a long list of training utopias, some short-lived and some continuing.

The histories and geographies (or non-histories and non-geographies) of these training places were the mirrors of utopian thought in the context of twentieth-century cosmopolitanisms and globalizing processes. In hindsight, however, we can appreciate that, even when utopic, many of the conceptual pillars of these examples failed to envision the dystopic future we experience today and each, in their own way, broke down or may have outlasted themselves. For example, twentieth-century intercultural training cannot be disassociated with its necessity for air travel and therefore with its carbon footprint. Moreover, its practice did not take into consideration the authorship of the trained body. In contrast, and as it has been widely discussed, its epistemology privileged a Eurocentric authorship that in turn contributed to geopolitics of training shaped by tendentious cultural diplomacy and exchange. This determined that the dynamics of the rehearsal space or studio limited the possibilities of transversal fluidity, and therefore of collective performance utopias. The trained body became, by proxy, the agency of the trainer’s knowledge, expertise or cultish appeal – their personal brand in a global network of elite travellers.

The utopia of training itself is in an impasse. What conversations do we need to have, at this historical and geothermal moment, to recover training from the hands of identitarian idealisms and naive pedagogies ? What is the future of training in a time where the future is in crisis ? What becomes of the trained body in the moment of planetary terminus ? What is contemporary performance training in light of new materialist thought, post-globalisms, decolonial and hierarchical critiques, gender fluidity and spectrums, and post-human theories ? How can we unsettle and maybe reset the authorship of our utopias ? We cannot deny that training and authority exist hand in hand. What, then, becomes of the relationship status between teacher and student, master and disciple, in a moment when the authorship in and of the body so urgently needs a revision in relation to twenty-first century conditions ? Is there room to propose a new training utopia ?

This issue of Performance Research will look into the concept of training utopias. Contributions will include discussions on theatre and performance training but also training more generally as it evolves into an economic indicator and ecological necessity in post-industrial and late capitalistic societies.

Proposal topics may include :

  • Histories of performance training and their connection to utopia and hope
  • Para-training
  • Critique of hegemonic discourses in actor training
  • Decolonizing the conservatoire
  • The tyranny of tradition
  • Comparative perspectives in training
  • Training manifestos
  • New materialisms and performer training
  • Planetary training and the future of cross-cultural training
  • Digital and mediated training
  • Training in/for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Cosmic Bulletin Call for papers Submission deadline : April 14, 2020 www.rigabiennial.com

The Institute of the Cosmos announces a call for papers for publication in the Cosmic Bulletin : a free, single-issue journal, influenced by the philosophy of Russian cosmism and its historical and contemporary manifestations. The Institute of the Cosmos is a collective research project, developed as an artistic contribution for the Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art (RIBOCA2), which opens to the public in May of this year. The Cosmic Bulletin is a publishing platform of the institute and will be made available to the public throughout the duration of the exhibition.

The bulletin will address the need for a creative investigation of the materiality of the cosmos and its strange universalism, from the perspectives of philosophy, anthropology, history of science and art. The bulletin intends to interrogate the current understanding of our biological and social conditions, and to map vectors of our future development, inspired by the history of cosmist thinking and the speculative practices that sustain it. The bulletin seeks to unlock the hidden potential of radical imaginaries across multiple fields and histories of knowledge.

We have many urgent questions : How can our understanding of time and space be expanded ? How can our life-span be extended ? What are the horizons of organic and inorganic life ? How to control time ? How to understand the unity of all that exists ? How does our post-secular society challenge contemporary science, and vice versa ? What kind of sociality will a cosmist future bring ? How can life on Earth and beyond be elaborated ? What could extra-terrestrial art and literature be ? Are plants conscious and should we eat them ? How to live without killing any form of life ? We welcome you to think this through with us.

The Institute of the Cosmos invites scholars, artists, activists and autodidacts in all fields to contribute original studies, critical essays, theory and fiction pieces and other cross-genre forms of experimental writing.

Suggested topics : – Genderless society and a post-reproductive condition – Non-colonization of other planets – Cosmopolitanism and cosmo-politics – Cosmist aesthetics and evolutionary creativity – Museum as a laboratory of resurrection – Art without Death – Active evolution of species – Emancipation of inorganic matter – Geo-engineering and terraforming – Star anti-wars and total demilitarization – Conservation of life, preservation and immortality – Transformation of energy, nutrition techniques and autotrophic ecology – Cosmic temporality and heuristics of time – Cosmic subjectivity and cosmist consciousness – Post-secular religiosity and techniques of re-enchantment – Interplanetary medium, extra-terrestrial life and space travel – Radical futurology and scientific fortune-telling – Spatial communities and the commons in space – Cosmocene and decentered space

The deadline for submissions is April 14, 2020. Please email text as Microsoft Word document to cosmism [arobas] rigabiennial [point] com.

The Institute of the Cosmos is a project by Arseny Zhilyaev, Marina Simakova, and Anton Vidokle.

MAB Theme : Futures Implied

The theme for the Media Architecture Biennale 2020 is Futures Implied. Papers should address one or more of the following issues :

●    The Aesthetics and Poetics of Responsive Urban Spaces : How can media architecture contribute to a sense of place, deepening citizens’ understanding of and attachments to local sites and making them more legible, imaginative, and inclusive ? ●    Citizens’ Digital Rights in the Era of Platform Ecologies : How can media architecture articulate public values and allow citizens to govern through digital platforms, rather than be governed by them ? ●    Playful & Artistic Civic Engagement : How can media architecture help to enact people-centric interventions through which citizens themselves learn, negotiate, and create innovations through play and games ? ●    Restorative Cities : How can media architecture enable societies to regenerate socially, ecologically, and physiologically on multiple levels, from the individual to the city as an entity of systems ? ●    More-Than-Human Cities : How can media architecture move beyond its legacy of human-centric design, and foster and embrace the well-being of the natural ecosystem as a whole ?

APPEL DE CANDIDATURES INCUBATEUR EN COMMISSARIAT 2e édition ÉTÉ 2020 L’AGAVF lance un appel aux commissaires émergent.e.s pour participer à la 2e édition de l’Incubateur en commissariat à l’été 2020. Cet atelier intensif de commissariat, prenant la forme d’une résidence de deux semaines avec l’accompagnement d’une commissaire-mentore, a comme objectif de soutenir les personnes souhaitant développer des initiatives en commissariat et de stimuler les projets d’expositions ou d’événements visant à mieux faire connaître les œuvres et les artistes visuel.le.s des communautés francophones du Canada.

Trois commissaires émergent.e.s œuvrant sur le territoire où évoluent des centres artistes et galeries membres de l’AGAVF (Atlantique, Ontario, Ouest) bénéficieront de deux semaines de réflexion et de création dans un lieu qui sera déterminé en considérant les propositions soumises. Les participant.e.s auront l’occasion de faire avancer leur projet grâce à divers ateliers de commissariat et d’écriture et à des rencontres régulières avec la commissaire Véronique Leblanc. Ils et elles profiteront de séances de lecture, de recherche et d’écriture individuelles, ainsi que d’échanges collectifs entre participant.e.s, avec des intervenant.e.s invité.e.s et avec des personnes du milieu artistique local. À la lumière de besoins convergents, des activités de professionnalisation seront également offertes. Des visites d’expositions réalisées par des commissaires professionnel.le.s sont également prévues, préalablement à une retraite de travail.

Véronique Leblanc est commissaire indépendante, auteure et chargée de cours en histoire de l’art à l’Université du Québec à Montréal.

Diplômée de la maitrise en étudesdes arts de l’UQAM (2009), elle envisage les projets d’exposition qu’elle initie et les aventures pédagogiques dans lesquelles elle s’implique comme des occasions d’apprentissage partagées. Ses recherches portent actuellement sur l’imaginaire du commun en art actuel à travers un ensemble de pratiques artistiques qui combinent des approches collaboratives et performatives avec des stratégies documentaires.

CANDIDATURES ADMISSIBLES L’incubateur en commissariat s’adresse aux commissaires émergents des communautés francophones et acadiennes ayant déjà réalisé au moins un projet de commissariat ou présentant un fort intérêt pour la conceptualisation et l’organisation d’exposition, ou encore pour l’écriture sur l’art concernant notamment le travail d’artistes de ces communautés.

revue esse art+opinion

À l’heure où les sociétés doivent composer avec l’imminence des changements climatiques, l’explosion démographique planétaire ou la “singularité” technologique, on voit apparaître dans la littérature et les arts la marque d’un changement de paradigme profond concernant une conception de l’avenir. Se référant aux potentialités performatives du futur, la futurité (traduction du terme anglais “futurity”) s’inscrit dorénavant comme une philosophie de « l’à-venir » offrant de nouvelles avenues théoriques pour penser une suite du monde plus positive hors des schèmes traditionnels de l’utopisme critique. […] Envisager l’art dans sa futurité, c’est […] croire en sa capacité de créer des formes de vie, des modalités de relation novatrices. C’est réinvestir de bonne foi la capacité de l’art de créer de nouveaux mondes, de faire avec les possibles d’une humanité traversée de blessures et de violences, et de se saisir de l’expérience du présent dans l’intention d’en infléchir politiquement et éthiquement la trajectoire. […] Pour souligner la parution du centième numéro de la revue et marquer sa volonté de se projeter vers l’avenir, quel qu’il soit, Esse arts + opinions invite les auteur.e.s et artistes à proposer des textes qui interrogent les enjeux de la futurité à travers ses diverses déclinaisons artistiques (réactivation d’archives, relecture critique et décoloniale de l’art, de ses histoires et de ses objets, pratiques post ou transhumanistes, etc.). [Appel de textes + Politique éditoriale]

Review Series Call for Papers CMA Journal // SFU School for Contemporary Arts

The Comparative Media Arts Journal is pleased to invite individuals to submit to an ongoing call for re-views. Supplementary to CMAs semi-annual themed issues, the review series is a continuous academic platform that asks scholars, artists, curators, writers, and post- secondary students of all levels to engage in critical contemplation and reviews of exhibitions, art events, and publications.

Reviewed monthly by the managing editors of the CMA board, the submissions must demonstrate a clear, conceptual, and insightful understanding of their source material. In addition, all reviewers should author a critical and comparative position of the exhibition, event, or book that they are reviewing. Exhibitions reviews should carefully consider the character, practice, and concept of exhibited artists

as well as artworks while also critiquing the curatorial methodologies behind the exhibition. Do the curatorial intentions as outlined by texts and the structure of the exhibition support the artistic content ? Does

the artistic content support the exhibition/institutions intentions ? Is the relationship between the artworks and curation dynamic and innovative ? In what ways are the exhibitions successful at harbouring conversations, considerations, and possibilities for the future ? In what ways is the exhibition lacking at making an affective and effective experience for diverse audiences ? Reviews of art events  » which can include exhibition programming such as artist talks, curatorial tours, workshops, and so on » should summarize the scope of the event and its intentions while also

analyzing its success as a tool for public engagement and learning. In what ways did the event succeed in engaging a deeper understanding of a practice, institution, or stream of thought ? As a participant and active member of the audience, how could the event have been improved to engage a deep and contemplative understanding of its material ? In what ways did the curator or artist administering a talk, tour, or workshop engage an understanding of their curatorial or artistic process ? As a knowledgeable reviewer, what is your critical opinion of their positions, ideas, and methods ?

Similarly, book or article reviews require a developed summary and analysis of the authors positions and arguments. Who does the publication serve ? What kind of researcher would benefit from engaging

with it ? Additionally, publication reviewers should demonstrate a comparative analysis between the content of the reviewed subject and their own developed research interests. Using their own knowledge of particular subjects, what sorts of ideas regarded in the publication can be expanded on or are innovative approaches to considering particular concepts ?

The content of reviews are not limited to these suggestions. Other formats of creative practice can be analyzed such as films, concerts, theatre and so on. However, it is imperative that all reviews demonstrate a position of critique and an understanding of contemporary curating, artistic practice, or arts programming.

As a platform the review series works to bring awareness to the diverse and creative happenings in Canadian and international art communities. The review series also provides an opportunity for individuals to develop and articulate critical points of view in relation to diverse art practices as an open-access platform for publication.

Accepted reviews can range from 500-1500 words in length. All submissions should follow the Chicago Manual of Style and utilize in-text citations.

Reviews will be accepted and considered on the last day of each month and published shortly there after. The next deadline for submissions will be November 30th 2019. Any review submitted after the deadline will be considered for publication the following month.

Please submit all formatted and properly edited reviews to Mallory Gemmel at cma_journal [arobas] sfu [point] ca including ATTN REVIEW SERIES in the subject line.

Should your review be accepted for publication the journal will reach out to provide a writers contract and CMA formatting guidelines. We thank you for your interest and encourage all to submit work. On occasion, rejected submissions may be considered for publication should editing suggestions and requirements be met.
