Myseum of Toronto has launched a call for submissions for their seventh annual Myseum Intersections festival.

Myseum Intersections is an annual festival that will take place during the month of April 2022.

Project proposals can range from exhibitions to events such as walking tours, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, public programs, exhibition tours, community celebrations, interactive experiences, and performances. We prioritize participatory and co-created projects, and encourage collaborative partnerships between organizations, collectives and individuals.

Myseum of Toronto will be hosting online information sessions taking place from 6:30pm-8:00pm EDT on September 9th, 2020 and October 7th, 2020. Participants only need to attend one of the two information sessions. To register click here.

the8fest seeks your 8mm, Super 8, 9.5mm or other small-gauge film projects (such as loops, handmade, experimental and installations) for our 14th festival being held January 22nd to 24th, 2021.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE : OCTOBER 1st, 2020.

***THE8FEST EXHIBITS ALL WORK ON FILM ! Works selected for the festival, therefore, must be finished on small-gauge film (8mm, Super-8, Ultra Pan 8, 9.5 mm). We do NOT exhibit digital or video projects. We do accept Super 8 blown up to 16mm or even 35mm !***

Films can be :
– Experimental, animated, personal, handmade
– Diary and essay films, documentaries
– Live performance and music mixed with film
– Films from everyday culture – historical footage, home movies

the8fest uses professional small-gauge projection equipment including Elmo GS-1200 and ST-1200 models. Our technicians and programmers have many years experience specializing in small-gauge film formats and technology. The greatest care will be taken in handling, previewing and projecting films, but standard wear on prints is to be expected with any exhibition on celluloid. By submitting your film, you agree to waive the8fest of any liability for minor damage to the submitted film. Each work will be inspected upon arrival and departure from our custody, and any notable issues will be communicated to the filmmaker’s contact.

GUIDELINES :

– No Submission Fee !
– Submission deadline is October 1st, 2020.
– We encourage submissions from Black, Indigenous, and artists of colour. We encourage DIY filmmakers, experimental artists, established filmmakers, and everyone who has an interest in small gauge film to apply !
– Submissions can be sent either on film or online preview video (sorry we can’t accept video files by email or file transfer at this time). If you have any accommodation needs, please email us at the8fest [arobas] gmail [point] com as soon as possible in order to arrange the shipment of your film to us !
– PLEASE NOTE : Exhibition is exclusively on celluloid only !
– We do NOT exhibit digital or video projects.
– We do accept Super 8 blown up to 16mm or even 35mm
– Please include film/project description, artist biography and filmography.
– Artist fees (screening fees) paid to all selected films/projects.
– Application requires the film/project be available for exhibition in Toronto from January 22nd to January 24th, 2021.
– Sound on film, separate sound CD/cassette and live performance/narration can all be accommodated. For separate or “wild” sound, please record the soundtrack so that it cues at first image, or provide clear instructions as to when to start the sound.
– MP3, AIFF, WAV or other compressed audio (sound) files can be sent by email.
– Cuing instructions should be included and clearly stated.
– Filmmakers with separate sound should not expect exact audio synchronization with their picture.
– Please note that the8fest will screen what is sent to us. The leader with the film will be removed, unless the leader is itself part of the film. the8fest’s projectionist assembles the accepted films into sequenced programmes, so applicants should make it clear where the projectionist can or should cut.
– For installations or performances : Please include detailed technical requirements and any equipment needs. We have limited resources for non-projection equipment (e.g. lights, multiple mics, etc.) – the more information the better !

racism and oppression, (pre-)existing
conditions, climate change, and social justice activism during this unprecedented time.

artists who identify as BIPOC to submit work for the opportunity to be featured on the

Artists will hear from us within two weeks of receipt of work. Selected submissions will

the

projects from the Instagram exhibition to be archived at the end of summer on

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.

apexart NYC Open Call 2020-2021
October 1–31, 2020

apexart
291 Church Street
New York, NY 10013
USA

www.apexart.org

apexart is accepting exhibition proposals for its NYC Open Call from October 1-31, 2020. The four winning proposals will become apexart exhibitions presented at apexart’s NYC space as part of its 2021-22 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit a proposal online.

Four winning proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of up to USD 10,000, staff support, and be part of the next apexart exhibition season.

Submission process
Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No accompanying biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and must be submitted in English. Jurors rate proposals based on the idea and concept. See examples at https://apexart.org/opencallwinners.php

Selection process
Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system involves hundreds of internatioal jurors to review proposals. The jury composed of 400+ individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds—including students at over a dozen international universities—will assess the submissions. Proposals are juried anonymously and randomized to ensure that each submission receives the same consideration. apexart staff does not influence or affect the results of the jury in any way.

Results
The four highest-ranked proposals each receive an exhibition budget of up to $10,000 and complete staff support. Working with the apexart team, curators will realize their original ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition curators are expected, encouraged and challenged to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into small, focused, noteworthy exhibitions.

To submit an exhibition proposal and learn more, visit apexart.org/opencalls.html between October 1-31, 2020.

REVERSO is a call to look at what is happening now in art from the underside which, until recently just peeking through, is now becoming increasingly visible, from the reverse of a suddenly upended side, as well as being a device that saves the lives of climbers in case they suddenly fall off the rock, helping them convert an inevitable crash into a controlled rappel.

In search of a quality path and a redefinition of development : we call for REVERSO.

The shift requires to revise the status quo, to see what lies underneath, study things inside out, be inquisitive, and display sensitivity. This is the function of media art ; its chance to operate with the values that are specific to art, and through its capability of fostering unobvious relations while looking not for one method – but for a multiplicity of visions, concepts, and practices.

Opening events : May 12–15, 2021


WRO Biennale
The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for media art in Poland and one of the leading international contemporary art events in Europe. Since its inception in 1989, WRO has been presenting art forms created using new media for artistic expression and communication, exploring current creative territories, and forming a critical perspective of emerging issues in culture, art, society, technology, and humanities.

Call for applications
Investec Cape Town Art Fair, Cape Town / South Africa
February 19–21, 2021


Application deadline : October 8

Investec Cape Town Art Fair
Cape Town International Convention Centre Convention Square
1 Lower Street
Cape Town

South Africa

www.investeccapetownartfair.co.za

We are pleased to announce that applications for Investec Cape Town Art Fair 2021 are now open. The application guidelines and entry forms are accessible on our website here. Applications close on October 8, 2020.

Taking place between February 19-21, 2021, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), Investec Cape Town Art Fair offers an intimate experience of the largest contemporary art fair in Africa, in one of the world’s most vibrant art cities. With over 107 exhibitors, 22,000 visitors, 4800 VIPs and a supportive local art community, the fair provides a platform for collectors, galleries, curators, artists, and art journalists from around the globe to engage and create connections. Investec Cape Town Art Fair has proven to be the place where the fast-growing African art market and the international art world meet. The fair continues to attract the participation of prominent galleries from the region and beyond, with many international galleries presenting their artists within an African context alongside Africa’s leading contemporary art galleries.

With the emergence of COVID-19, the world is being driven into a state of uncertainty and the urgency of rebuilding. Therefore, Investec Cape Town Art Fair’s focus for its ninth edition is shared-support, collaboration and inspiring new initiatives to ensure momentum and establish a support system amongst exhibitors. We believe in the art fair model to bring people together to connect, converse and contemplate at the forefront of contemporary art. The 2021 edition of the fair looks profoundly to the notion of collaboration across aspects of Investec Cape Town Art Fair with the intention of opening up a dialogue and a shared support structure, with an exchange of ideas, research, artists, strategies and resources.

The fair’s curated sections contribute to its intimate engagement : Tomorrows/Today showcases artists who will be tomorrow’s leading names. The section will again be co-curated by Nkule Mabaso (Head Curator, Michaelis Galleries, South Africa) and Luigi Fassi (Artistic Director, MAN-Contemporary Art Museum, Italy). The Tomorrows/Today platform is meant to act as a forecast of future relevant practises and ideas. There is no knowable line that one crosses to move from emerging to established, therefore the section can present artists who have a track record but for whatever reason have not gained significant attention. SOLO : insight-out seeks to more fully explore the artistic practices of artists working locally and abroad, through curated solo presentations. In its fourth iteration, the section will explore how artists have reacted to the isolation period, as well as opening up a conversation about the effect that exchange and collaboration has in the artist’s production. The questions of how sharing has enriched the artist’s practice and how virtual contact has impacted their practice come to mind.

Investec Cape Town Art Fair is produced by Fiera Milano S.p.A, a global leader in exhibition management and the organisers of miart art fair.

In the fourth year of our partnership, Investec Cape Town Art Fair continues to leverage the support of our title sponsor, Investec. The fair offers collectors the unique opportunity to engage with a wide cross-section of the art world, through events in collaboration with our participating galleries and partnering art institutions. In addition, Investec Cape Town Art Fair will expand its public programme, giving all visitors an in-depth view of Cape Town’s ever-thriving contemporary art scene.

Call for Participants : ADA-DADA Residency 2020-2021

ADA-DADA Residency : Call for Participants
Curated by María Alejandrina Coates
Apply by 24 September 2020

SAVAC is seeking participants for the 2020-2021 ADA-DADA Artist Residency : a collaborative production residency and learning community asking how artists can reclaim and reposition data as a form of counter-culture. The program is curated by Maria Alejandrina Coates.

Background

The ADA-DADA Residency begins by addressing today’s data-driven, device-oriented and networked economy. The access, collection, and use of data as the building blocks for both digital and physical spaces underscores its material presence in daily life. As the market floods with so-called smart devices where ubiquitous objects are now connected within contemporary capitalist paradigms, the flow of data becomes a central tenet for investigation. Within this context, The ADA-DADA Residency aims to provide a place for artists to critically engage with how data is used and its role as material, currency, knowledge and power. The role of the artist, and particularly that of artists operating within a plurality of experiences and ways of knowing, is fundamental for a critical and tactical engagement with the networks, interfaces, and systems through which data flows and operates. This residency will build a community of learning that centers the perspectives of womxn, people of colour and people from the global south as a way to increase the access, capacity, and agency of artists who have been systematically marginalized from having ownership and creative power over different technologies.

As a platform combining elements of learning, sharing, and making informed by the theories of critical pedagogy and constructivism – the ADA-DADA program is a collaborative production residency that places special focus on the intersecting realms of data literacy, feminist thought and artistic practice. The residency intends to be a critical provocation for participants to ask whether we can reclaim and reposition data as a form of counter-culture. At a moment in time when our traditional learning experiences are being disrupted by a global pandemic caused by the novel Coronavirus, this initiative prioritizes the significance of digital media and arts both as a medium and as an engine for generative learning that is critically engaged with technology.

The Residency

The residency will offer participants a series of workshops, mentorship sessions, and technical assistance designed to support the creation of new work between October 2020 and May 2021, culminating in a public presentation. The program will be open to creative community practitioners across disciplines, including artists, activists, designers, creative technologists and developers (among others) interested in exploring the role of data as material for cultural and artistic production. As a collaborative production residency, the program will take up the framework of an extended hackathon with an ethos of collective learning, thinking, and making that prioritizes peer-to-peer skill and knowledge sharing.

In creating an environment for practitioners to engage with each other, share skills and build capacities through a series of programs that move through critical thinking, speculative design to hands-on creation – the residency’s focus is to inspire and build a community of multiple and nuanced voices to shape the narrative of data and technology as it intersects with other structures of power through collaborative artistic responses.

Terms

Participants will receive an honorarium of CAD $2,500, and a materials budget of $700. As a collaborative initiative, participants are expected to work together and co-produce artwork within the context of data addressed throughout the residency.

Participants will receive support through :

6 scheduled workshops,
Access to IT/Programming support (programmer),
Mentorship and support from curator, guest facilitators and SAVAC
Peer to peer exchanges
Participants will be required to :

Attend all workshops
Share your work/practice with peers
Collaborate with fellow residents to produce new work
Participate in a public presentation of new work
Be available for biweekly cohort meetings throughout the residency
Timeline

The residency will take place from late October 2020 to May 2021. Workshops will take place between November 2020 and January 2021, while cohort meetings and production will take place throughout the entirety of the residency. Public Presentations will take place in April-May 2021.

Expressions of Interest

To apply for the residency, please email your expression of interest to adadada [point] residency [arobas] gmail [point] com with the subject line “ADA-DADA 2020” and include the following separate documents as attachments :

Your bio (250 words max) AND a link to your website, portfolio and/or CV
Cover Letter indicating why you would like to participate in the residency
Deadline for submissions : Thursday 24 September 2020

CALL FOR PROPOSALS :
TORONTO SCULPTURE GARDEN
Part of ArtworxTO, Year of Public Art 2021
115 King Street East, Toronto
Deadline for proposals : October 26, 2020
Programming Dates : February 1  » April 30, 2021

>From its opening in 1981, The Toronto Sculpture Garden (TSG)
commissioned temporary artworks by over 80 artists, in a small City of
Toronto
park opposite St. James Cathedral on King Street east. Until
2014, it was operated as a partnership between the City of Toronto and
the Louis L. Odette family, whose non-profit L.L.O. Sculpture Garden
Foundation funded and administered the exhibitions. Under the
direction of Rina Greer, the TSG provided artists with the opportunity to
work experimentally in public space, explore issues of scale and
materials, and engage with the local community as well as visitors to
the neighbourhood.

The 2021 Sculpture Garden projects will be part of the ArtworxTO
program, the Citys year-long celebration of public art. This will include
partnership projects guest-curated by Black Artists Networks in
Dialogue (BAND), from May to September, and the Toronto Biennial of
Art from October to December. To launch the years programming, the
City of Toronto is inviting proposals from Toronto-based curatorial
collectives, curators and arts organisations interested in programming
the TSG from
February to April, 2021.

In a unique opportunity, the Sculpture Garden is seeking proposals that
embrace the outdoors and bring light and life to the cold and darkness
of winter. The TSG is in the heart of the city, close to so many places
where the public previously gathered ; places of worship, restaurants
and bars, theatres and performance spaces, all of which have been
severely impacted by the pandemic. We are seeking work(s) that can
speak to the multiple narratives playing out in public spaces now,
historically, and in an imagined future.

As it will not be possible to install foundations, proposals are not
expected to be primarily sculptural. This is an opportunity for
performance- and event-based artworks (including music and other
audio works, film and video projection, and ephemeral installations)
which could also include a parallel online component. While the overall
program should be original, existing works may be included.

Competition Process
The successful
proposal will be selected by a specially convened
panel, made up of ArtworxTO advisory panel members.

Budget : $30,000.00 CAD (+HST), which includes, but is not limited to,
all artists fees, materials, project expenses, transportation, insurance,
and permits.

Applicants are welcome to raise funds from other sources, and the City
of Toronto has the ability to issue charitable tax receipts to potential
partners.

Timeline :
Call for Proposals : August 27  » October 26, 2020
Online Info Session : September 9, 2020 (time to be confirmed)
Deadline for proposals : October 26, 2020
Selection : Week of November 2, 2020
Program Duration : February 1  » April 30, 2021

All those interested in applying must email

submission requirements.

Being Scene 2021 – Call for Curator
Curator Fee : $5000
Deadline : September 21

Workman Arts is seeking a guest Curator or team of Curators to develop and curate the 20th anniversary of our annual Being Scene visual art/multimedia exhibition. Every year, Being Scene exhibits a survey of over 100 artworks by member artists and artists with lived experience of mental health and addiction issues. For the 20th anniversary, we are looking for proposals that speak to the current social climate as it relates to mental health and continues to celebrate Workman member artists and artists with lived experience. Workman Arts supports proposals that offer to showcase artists’ most recent endeavours as well as works that incite conversation and promote a range of intersectional narratives.

History of Being Scene :
The Being Scene exhibition began 20 years ago on the grounds of CAMH. Members of the larger art community were invited every year to jury submitted work by Workman member artists and artists in the community who self-identified with lived experience. Every year artists gave shape to compelling ideas and narratives, covering a wide range of conceptual and material approaches from diverse experiences. A key feature of the exhibition was to celebrate the artists and their work. Workman Arts moved to its current location in the former Equity Showcase Theatre at 651 Dufferin in 2009 and the annual Being Scene continued in spaces such as The Gladstone Hotel and the Toronto Media Arts Centre [TMAC]. In November of 2020, Workman Arts will be moving back to the newly developed CAMH Queen Street campus, and Being Scene will continue to thrive in local spaces.

About Workman Arts :
Workman Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization that promotes a greater understanding of mental health & addiction issues through creation & presentation. We support artists living with mental health & addiction issues through peer-to-peer arts education, public presentations & partnerships with the broader arts community.

Send proposals to submissions [arobas] workmanarts [point] com by Monday, September 21, 2020.
Include your proposal plus cover letter, current CV and any other relevant information/articles.

Workman Arts has identified equity and anti-oppression as strategic priorities and strongly encourages qualified applicants from diverse communities to apply and self-identify in their proposals. We welcome & encourage proposals from people with disabilities ; please note, until November, Workman Arts is in a temporary location that is not accessible. Accommodations available on request.

No. 102 – Dossier (Re)voir la peinture
Date de tombée : 10 janvier 2021

[…] L’expression retour de la peinture est d’abord apparue dans les années 1980 autour de pratiques artistiques et d’activités critiques qui observaient un regain d’intérêt pour le pictural, alors que les décennies précédentes avaient été consacrées à l’immatérialité, à l’éphéméralité, à la corporalité. Pourtant, ce énième retour de la peinture mérite d’être déconstruit. D’une part, nombre de peintres contemporains s’intéressent aujourd’hui à ces questions qui sont prétendument étrangères à leur médium, en proposant des formes hybrides de création empruntant à l’installation, à l’art conceptuel ou à la performance. D’autre part, nombre d’artistes investissent les thèmes et les conventions de représentation de la peinture de manière critique. Ces artistes, souvent issus des communautés autochtones, noires ou de couleur, l’entrevoient comme un outil à mobiliser pour déconstruire l’homogénéité des discours en art. Dans les deux cas, la peinture se dresse contre une certaine orthodoxie, imposée par le médium lui-même ou par le milieu qui la diffuse.

La peinture actuelle s’articulerait dans ces trois moments : dans les questionnements de sa pratique, dans sa valorisation par la mise en exposition, et finalement dans son imbrication dans les rouages du marché de l’art. Plutôt que d’imaginer un retour à la peinture qui signalerait la résolution d’une fausse absence, vaut-il mieux la comprendre comme une expression du contemporain, qui nous inviterait à penser ses mouvements, ses mobilités et ses discours pluriels ? Que dit-on par la peinture ? Que nous dit-elle sur l’état du milieu de l’art ? Esse arts + opinions invite les auteurs et autrices à réfléchir aux conditions de cette visibilité. À quels impératifs esthétiques, éthiques, sociaux, politiques ou économiques répond-t-elle ? Comment est-elle saisie par les artistes actuels ?
