Les propositions peuvent être soumises pour la salle d’exposition ou la salle de projection.

Bien que les « pratiques fondées sur l’image » fassent généralement référence à la photographie, à la vidéo et au film, Dazibao cherche surtout à présenter des œuvres qui réfléchissent sur l’effet et le rôle des images dans la société contemporaine. Les soumissions sont évaluées en fonction de leur rigueur artistique et de leur propension à contribuer aux discours sociétaux actuels.

Dazibao et PRIM s’unissent, depuis 2005, pour offrir à un·e artiste une occasion exceptionnelle de produire et de diffuser une œuvre. La proposition retenue tient compte des spécificités respectives des deux organismes et doit par conséquent soulever des problématiques formelles et conceptuelles propres aux pratiques de l’image tout en n’ayant crainte d’y confronter l’audio, la vidéo et le traitement numérique.

L’artiste retenu·e dispose d’un an pour réaliser son projet et bénéficie de l’accès à tous les équipements et de tournage et de postproduction vidéo (salles de montage, colorisations, transferts, réalité virtuelle…) et audio (studios d’exploration, d’enregistrement et de mixage sonore) pour un montant maximal de 12 000 $ (calculé sur le tarif non-membre de PRIM). Les honoraires des techniciens ne sont pas inclus dans la résidence. PRIM offre à l’artiste la possibilité de recevoir une formation ou du soutien en audio et/ou vidéo d’une valeur maximale de 1 000 $ (non monnayable ou transférable).

Le projet sera ensuite présenté dans le cadre de la saison de programmation régulière 2021-2022 de Dazibao et bénéficiera de tout l’encadrement logistique et promotionnel accordé aux programmations du centre.

Les artistes résidant à l’extérieur de Montréal doivent prendre en charge tous frais de déplacement et d’hébergement.

Modalités

Les récipiendaires devront devenir membres de PRIM et s’engager à respecter la politique d’accès du centre
Le projet doit se réaliser dans l’année qui suit la date de signature du contrat
Critères de sélection

Caractère novateur de la proposition
Pertinence du propos dans le contexte des pratiques actuelles de l’image

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.

The program of WRO Biennale is open to artworks and various forms of expression and communication applying the artistic potential of new media, completed after January 1st, 2019.

Submissions dates : October 1–21, 2020


WRO 2021 : REVERSO
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.

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 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

Call for Proposals

Vol. 26, No. 6 : ‘On Air’ (September 2021)

 

Issue Editors :

Evelyn O’Malley (University of Exeter)

Chloe Kathleen Preedy (University of Exeter)

 

Proposal deadline : 2 November 2020

 

Air is a fundamental aspect of our existence. Its vital role in sustaining life is matched by its phenomenological significance, defining our relationship to the world around us. As ‘the very medium that makes interaction possible’ (Ingold 2012 : 77), air shapes human modes of expression, including performance. Yet the necessity, the inescapability, of air can be a source of vulnerability, as long-standing concerns about air quality and the consequences of atmospheric pollution reflect. Such questions have recently taken on new significance : for all its devastating impact on lives and economies around the world, one much-discussed by-product of the COVID-19 pandemic is the improvement in urban air quality, while at the same time the spectre of airborne transmission has deepened and complicated public awareness of the air we breathe. Nonetheless, it remains easy to forget about this invisible, often intangible, element, even as its presence pervades every aspect of our lives.

 

Recently, artists and scholars have begun to engage more extensively with the matter of air. Performance can make the atmosphere and its operations visible, as in Teac Damsa’s touring production of Swan Lake/ Loch na hEala (2016–present), in which thousands of white feathers dance on the air currents ; Jennifer Turpin and Michaelie Crawford’s wind-powered kinetic sculpture Halo(2013) ; or Olafur Eliasson’s2003–4 Weather Project installation at Tate Modern. Fujiko Nakaya, who has been making air visible with her performing fog sculptures since the 1970s, presented London Fog #03779—featuring dance performances by Min Tanaka—outside the same gallery in 2017. Inside theatre buildings, air has shaped the material conditions in which audiences encounter performance. In 1952, for example, smog infiltrated Sadler’s Wells Theatre, halting a performance of La Traviata after the first act, while in 2018 Texas’s open-air Shakespeare Festival pumped air conditioning through the floorboards of the Miller Outdoor Theatre to help cool actors during scorching performances of The Comedy of Errors and Hamlet. In recent years, air quality has become a thematic subject of the stage and screen : Caryl Churchill’s radio play Not Not Not Not Not Enough Oxygen(1971) offered a dystopian evocation of London’s smog-filled future ; Ben Elton’s play Gasping(1990) addressed the corporatization of clean air ; the BBC’s SoICanBreathe season (2017), designed to raise awareness of global air pollution, featured numerous short films on the topic ; and the Camden People’s Theatre’s 2018 Shoot the Breeze encouraged Camden Council to adopt a new air pollution policy. Performance can also draw attention to air quality in more direct ways, with artists highlighting the risk of urban air pollution on a global scale : from the California-based project Particle Falls(2010), which used laser light scattering to track particulate matter, to Michael Pinsky’s Pollution Pods, which emulated the air of five different global cities while on display in Trondheim and London (2017–18). In another 2017 response, performance artist Brother Nut wandered Beijing for 100 days vacuuming up polluted air and turning it into bricks ; the start-up company Graviky Labs uses a similar technology to transform the particulate matter in polluted air into ink that is used by artists from Bangalore to Boston. Open-air performance offers a rich resource for exploring such questions of air quality and the impact of pollution, providing fresh perspectives on our historical and contemporary interactions with the air.

 

This issue, ‘On Air’, seeks to expand the scope of existing academic enquiry (Sharpe 2016 ; Staging Atmospheres 2017 ; Hamilton and Neimanis 2018 ; McCormack 2018 ; Welton 2018 ; Welton and Déchery 2020) by considering how performance might encourage more careful apprehension of this life-sustaining element. Our aim is to appreciate the diverse ways in which air is utilized, experienced and/or evoked within contemporary performance practices, asking questions about the unique relationship between air and performance and about how performance studies can contribute to an enhanced appreciation of the aerial environment : from the local air we breathe, to the atmosphere of our planet. We invite artists, cultural theorists, environmental historians, open-air theatre makers and scholars to contribute pieces that consider how air is conceived in a diverse range of performance contexts, and welcome proposals for articles, artist’s pages, creative pieces with associated multi-media, interviews or new writing. We aspire to envelop the place of performance in an environmental understanding of air, and to consider how attending to the matter of air might help performance studies and practice rethink itself.

 

Areas of potential interest and intersections with performance may include, but are not restricted to :

 

aerial modes of performance
aerial resources and renewable energy
air pollution and climate change
air shows, drones, and military technologies
air- and site-specific or immersive performance
air, health and bodies, including airborne contagion
airy dramaturgies
amphitheatre drama
applied and socially engaged performance
atmospheric ‘things’ and ‘envelopes’ (McCormack 2018), for example, balloons and bubbles
breath and the air
environmental histories of the air
environmental racism and contaminated air
geoengineering
geographies and aerographies
historical air in contemporary theatre
new materialist readings of air in performance
open-air performances
post-human and ‘transcorporeal’ approaches to the air (Alaimo 2010)
‘slow violence’ and air pollution (Nixon 2011)
urban and non-urban air

Esse

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 ?
