La Centrale invite les artistes et commissaires à tous niveaux de leur carrière à soumettre des projets d’expositions, de commissariats et projets numériques en lien avec le mandat du centre. Nous payons les droits d’expositions et les honoraires selon les taux recommandés par l’organisme : Canadian Artists’ Representation / Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC).

La Centrale galerie Powerhouse est un centre d’artistes autogéré voué à la diffusion et au développement des pratiques féministes pluridisciplinaires. Nous nous engageons à soutenir des pratiques et des artistes peu visibles dans les institutions culturelles dominantes, et ce, à différentes étapes de leurs carrières.

Notre programmation est construite sur la base de la non-hiérarchie et du consensus, par les comités de sélection formés de membres actif‧ve‧s du centre.

La vitrine de la galerie est un espace de diffusion qui offre aux artistes une visibilité directement sur l’une des rues les plus animées de Montréal : le boulevard Saint-Laurent. Les projets soumis devront ainsi utiliser la vitrine comme élément scénographique afin de faire dialoguer l’œuvre avec les passant‧e‧s et résident‧e‧s du quartier. La Centrale accueille les artistes en arts visuels de toutes disciplines et qui résonnent avec le mandat du centre.

Nous payons les droits d’expositions et les honoraires selon les taux recommandés par l’organisme : Canadian Artists’ Representation / Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC).

Programme d’expositions 2022-2023

Date de tombée  : 15 novembre 2021, à midi 

OBORO invite les artistes, les collectifs d’artistes et les commissaires en arts visuels, en arts médiatiques et numériques, ou en pratiques interdisciplinaires, à présenter des projets d’exposition entre l’automne 2022 et la fin 2023. Nous nous intéressons aux pratiques innovantes qui posent un regard actuel sur les enjeux auxquels nous sommes confrontés en tant qu’individus, société ou artistes. OBORO s’est donné le mandat de soutenir la création issue de diverses pratiques culturelles et d’encourager l’innovation, l’expérimentation, l’échange d’idées et le partage du savoir. L’objectif d’OBORO est de susciter la réflexion dans le domaine artistique et dans la société en général, et de contribuer à une culture de paix.  
 
Votre projet d’exposition peut également inclure un volet performatif ou une suggestion d’événement public (visite commentée, causerie, atelier, classe de maître, activité de médiation, etc.).  

OBORO encourage particulièrement les artistes et commissaires autochtones ainsi que celles et ceux issu.e.s de la diversité culturelle, tout comme les membres de groupes en quête d’équité et de communautés sous-représentées, à proposer un projet d’exposition. Les soumissions seront évaluées en fonction de leur mérite artistique, de leur cohérence avec la mission d’OBORO, de leur impact écologique et de leur faisabilité sur les plans techniques ainsi que des ressources humaines. OBORO cherche à appuyer les artistes qui ont des enfants à réaliser leur projet en offrant un soutien pour la recherche de gardiennage et une aide financière lorsque disponible.

Programmation 2022-2024 / Arprim
1 décembre 2021
 
/ Montréal (Québec)
 
Pour son cycle de programmation 2022-2024, Arprim invite les artistes, collectifs et commissaires professionnels ayant des pratiques actuelles liées aux arts imprimés à proposer un projet d’exposition ou d’événement s’inspirant des orientations décrites ci-dessous.

À travers son mandat, Arprim propose d’aborder l’imprimé comme un média ouvert, mobile, social et accessible. Cette vision de l’art imprimé est ancrée dans une histoire qui lie le médium à la pratique de l’affiche, du pamphlet, du zine ou encore de l’(auto)édition, à des fonctions sociales, activistes, militantes, revendicatrices, et à des approches DIY, communautaires, collectives ou carrément autodidactes.

Bien qu’il soit toujours possible de générer des espaces de dialogues démocratiques, par tous et pour tous, grâce aux arts imprimés, qu’en est-il actuellement ? L’hybridité et la multidisciplinarité des pratiques artistiques a-t-elle permis de transformer la fonction (sociale, politique, émancipatrice, etc.) de l’imprimé ? Le web, dans toutes ses ramifications (applications mobiles, réseaux sociaux, objets connectés, etc.) a-t-il remplacé, sur les plans idéologiques et pratiques, l’imprimé comme médium de tous les possibles ? Au contact des technologies numériques et dans un paradigme où l’éphémérité des images est soutenue par leur diffusion à vitesse grand V, comment les arts d’impression conservent-ils leur pertinence, leur importance, leur valeur ? Que permettent-ils de dire, quelles communautés peuvent-ils rejoindre, comment se développent-ils aujourd’hui ?

Par un ensemble de projets (expositions, lancements, ateliers, discussions, etc.), Arprim souhaite réunir les artistes, les professionnels de la culture et le public autour d’enjeux actuels qui redéfinissent notre rapport aux arts imprimés. Les propositions qui sortent du cadre traditionnel de l’art ou de la salle d’exposition sont les bienvenues.

Le dossier doit comprendre :
– une proposition de projet ( PDF, max. 1 page)
– un maximum de 15 images numériques (JPEG dans un fichier ZIP, max. 1024 pixels de large)
– un maximum de 2 liens YouTube ou Viméo (optionnel)
– une liste descriptive du visuel 
(PDF)

Le cas échéant, un lien vers votre site web ou encore,
– un texte de démarche (PDF, max. 1 page)
– un curriculum vitæ ( PDF, max. 3 pages)

Seuls les dossiers complets, reçus par courriel, seront considérés.

Envoyez votre dossier à : prog [arobas] arprim [point] org

L’imprimerie lance la seconde édition de son Chantier de recherche sur les pratiques de l’imprimé et du photographique, portant cette fois sur les pratiques artistiques écoresponsables !

Ce vaste projet de recherche, de création et d’échange vise à générer un dialogue entre les milieux artistiques, écologistes, scientifiques et entrepreneuriaux et à permettre le développement de pratiques écoresponsables innovantes. Fort du succès des mesures et actions pro-environnementales déjà en place en atelier, le centre souhaite se positionner en tant que leader canadien des pratiques artistiques écoresponsables.
 
Le Chantier se déploiera autour de quatre laboratoires de recherche-création d’une durée de 3 à 12 mois consécutifs, menés par des artistes engagés dans une démarche écoresponsable et accompagnés par l’expertise d’entrepreneurs locaux partenaires de L’imprimerie. Ces échanges permettront d’explorer de nouveaux procédés et matériaux respectueux de la nature et de l’environnement.
 
L’imprimerie invite donc les artistes, collectifs d’artistes et créateur.trices de tous horizons à soumettre un projet de recherche abordant l’image imprimée et photographique dans une approche d’écoconception, c’est-à-dire, l’ensemble de son cycle de création, de l’idéation jusqu’à la gestion des résidus. Chaque candidat.e est prié.e de sélectionner l’entreprise avec laquelle il.elle désire collaborer parmi les partenaires présenté.es ci-bas. Il est possible de suggérer une entreprise non mentionnée, sur présentation de documents supplémentaires.

Conditions d’accueil

L’accès privilégié aux services, équipements et installations de L’imprimerie pour une durée de 3 à 12 mois consécutifs, entre le 1er février 2022 et le 30 avril 2023 ;
Un cachet de 2000$ par mois (frais de matériaux inclus) ; 
Une rémunération pour la participation à des activités publiques et éducatives.
*Il est à prévoir que les frais de déplacement et de subsistance ne sont pas couverts. 
 
*Une attention particulière sera accordée aux personnes autochtones (Premières Nations, Inuit, et Métis), racisé.e.s (y compris les artistes récemment immigré.e.s), aux membres des communautés 2SLGBTQQIPAA+, et/ou aux personnes ayant des capacités différentes ou vivant une situation de handicap ou de maladie chronique. L’imprimerie encourage l’auto-identification des artistes et créateur.trice.s concerné.e.s afin de favoriser une représentation plurielle des diversités au sein du centre d’artistes.

La revue acadienne de création littéraire Ancrages cherche des textes et de l’art visuel

No 30  Échange avec la Revue Feux Follets
Date : 15 novembre 2021
Un appel à textes pour parler de la distance entre le Nord pis Sud. Entre le Coude pis Lafayette. Entre la Nouvelle-Orléans pis Bouctouche. Entre un homard pis un écrevisse. Entre le Bayou Lafourche et l’Atchafalaya. Entre Codofil, la Fane pis une ploye. Entre Emeline LaBiche et Évangéline, Gabriel Bellefontaine et Beausoleil. Rien de ça du tout ou tout en même temps.

Ou pour parler du rapprochement. D’y être. Des textes qui parlent des regards, des mines qu’on reconnait tout de suite. De la parenté. Du territoire qu’on habite.

Ou pour parler de chanter, de danser et de grouiller dans le mot de la langue. Dans tout ce que la chaleur peut inspirer.

Un appel à textes dans le français qui habite la personne.

En collaboration avec la revue Feux Follets.

ARCA along with 221A and The Architecture Lobby Tkaronto, have formed a Research Partnership to produce 15 regional engagement workshops which will inform the development of a new digital platform, countermap.land. Each of the workshops will be designed as counter-mapathons, and will be supported with a $5000 micro-grant disbursed by ARCA.

These events will develop the first data layer of countermap.land. And, the feedback and learnings gained from these events will help to inform the functionality, submission vetting process, and the interface of the website. Artist Run Centres (ARCs), artistic groups and collectives are asked to submit a brief Expression of Interest to detail their intentions, ambitions and credentials to host a workshop in their region. Any self-organized group of artists and cultural workers may apply to this program. 

This collectively drafted countermap of the land we call “Canada,” will be developed continually and pluralistically to mark the spatial manifestations of centuries of white supremacist doctrines within officially-constituted narratives of nation-building and map-making. countermap.land allows users to locate and upload images and writing about racist and colonial sites of trauma (monuments, objects, buildings, structures), areas (parks, streets, neighbourhoods, infrastructure, waterways, geographic zones), and events (memories, time-based processes). Users can equally submit proposals for counter-monuments and safer spaces, as to advance narratives of repair and care. 

This project recognizes that maps and the associated technologies of cartography are inseparable from the colonial project ; they describe and segment space, defining boundaries to movement, the exploitable resources of landscapes, and the reaches of imperial power. We hope through this work to appropriate and build on top of these tools to define new collective histories. This project will always be a work in progress. We hope through countermap.land, we not only challenge the data which is included and excluded in maps of so-called “Canada”, but to also reexamine and retool the technology of the map itself. 

countermap.land explores new methods for repatriation and pursues creative and collectively developed strategies for addressing real harm caused to BIPOC and Queer communities that cut across race, class, and gender identities. This platform will be an essential tool for architects, designers, planners and communities to create counter-power to hold colonial structures accountable, and it recasts space counter to established settler presumptions.

Date : 15 novembre

Located in Switzerland, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne / Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) is a leading university and one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan science and technology institutions.

EPFL hosts more than 350 labs at its international campus in the Lausanne area.

Initiated by EPFL College of Humanities (CDH), and amplified by EPFL Pavilions, the EPFL CDH Artist-in-Residence (AiR) Program reflects the CDH mission of fostering transdisciplinary encounters and collaborations between artists and EPFL’s scientific community, by supporting up to four artists in residence per year.

The program invites emerging and established international artists and creative practitioners for three- to four-month residencies to realize innovative and visionary projects at the intersection of art, science, and advanced technologies.

EPFL CDH AiR Program 2022 : Enter the Hyper-Scientific
The goal of the program is to further various interpretative and aesthetic avenues around the manifold scientific landscape of the EPFL through specific artistic productions. Forging encounters between artists and scientists in different disciplines, the program aims to establish a dynamic, critical, and inspiring platform for propelling new approaches and aesthetic investigations within the exponentially developing scene at the intersection of art, technology, science, and the humanities. The program functions as a facilitator and promoter of investigations in multiple directions, many of which will be discovered through the submitted projects themselves.

For its first comprehensive edition, the EPFL CDH AiR Program offers four paths :

Open Transdisciplinary welcomes international artists and creative practitioners from all disciplines and media to propose projects which investigate the fluid intersection between art, humanities, science, and technology and leaves applicants free to suggest the specific direction they would like to explore.

Wearable Technologies in collaboration with EPFL Nanoelectronic Devices Laboratory (NANOLAB) and Laboratory of Integrated Performance in Design (LIPID), invites innovative artists and designers, including fashion and jewelry designers, to explore the potential of apparel technology and wearable accessories and to imagine the next generation of smart wearables through creative approaches to fashion in general or specific items such as gloves or jewelry.

Interface Design and Digital Animation in collaboration with EPFL Reconfigurable Robotics Lab (RRL), prioritizes artists and designers working in the field of emerging technologies. We invite innovative artists and designers to submit a project to be developed in collaboration with the RRL, and which explores, reinvents, and questions the new frontiers of interface design and their applications in prosthetics and robotics.

Scientific Imaging in collaboration with the EPFL Center for Imaging, prioritizes artists familiar with imaging technologies, CGI, digital practices, and visual arts more broadly. We encourage projects that aim at exploring this unique repository of transdisciplinary and cross-scale scope, and to investigate its scientific aspects as well as its aesthetic and visual potential.

Regardless of these suggested profiles, artists coming from different fields are welcome to apply if they can present a clear rationale for doing so in their project.

Who do we want to reach ?
Emerging and established Swiss and international artists, with a proven career path or clear potential, who are interested in harnessing science and technological interventions in their artistic endeavors.
We welcome projects in diverse fields : visual and media arts ; film, digital, mixed-media and imaging ; musical composition, sound, and experimental forms of music ; experimental design and fashion ; literature and critical and speculative writing.

What do we offer ?
Travel costs and accommodation within the Lausanne region. Preferably, applicants will reside in the region during the entire period of the residency.
Monthly stipend and production budget.
Curatorial mentoring and supervision for the whole duration, including the final presentation of the project.

For detailed information about the program and the application process please visit our website or read the application guidelines.

Applications (in English) should be submitted by November 29, 2021 (midnight CET) at the email address : applications [point] CDH-AiR [arobas] epfl [point] ch preferably as one single PDF.

Amant is pleased to announce the annual call for applications for its Studio & Research Residency Program.

Amant’s 2022–2023 international Studio and Research Residency Program offers two iterations : fall and spring. Artists and artist duos at all stages of their careers and across a wide array of disciplines from the visual arts, literature, poetry, performance, filmmaking, and cultural theorists are encouraged to apply.

Amant Studio & Research Residency Program allows artists from around the world to spend three months in New York City to develop a specific research project that would benefit from the city’s communities, resources, and vibrant art scene. The residency is self-directed and research-based, as the studios are not designed for the production or fabrication of large-scale artworks.  Residents are encouraged to participate in an active dialogue with other residents and with Amant’s staff, as well as in Amant’s many public programs and activities. Amant highly values and promotes cross-disciplinary conversations.

Residency
The Amant campus features individual studios and office spaces, exhibition galleries, a library/reading room, a café & bookstore, and a fully outfitted performance space suitable for rehearsals and other activities. Residents also have exclusive access to a communal meeting and dining area with a courtyard garden. Residents receive round-trip economy flights to New York and airport transfers as well as a  monthly expense allowance of 3000 USD to offset the costs of accommodation, transport, and day-to-day expenses. Please be advised that the Amant studios are not residential. The candidates will be selected by a professional committee that includes Amant’s senior internal team and three external advisors.

Timeline
Cohort one : fall 2022 : mid-September to early December 2022
Cohort two : spring 2023 : early March to late May 2023

Application deadline : November 30, 2021, 11:59pm EST / New York Time

Final selection for both fall 2022 and spring 2023 announced : March 1, 2022

Important
Due to the high volume of applications received in 2020, the Amant Studio & Research Residency Program for 2022–2023 will limit the number of applications to a maximum of 800. Once the system receives 800 applications, it will no longer accept any additional applications, regardless of the November 30 deadline.

Application can only be submitted via the online form provided on the Amant website. Application materials received via email, WeTransfer, Dropbox, or similar will not be considered.

Current New York City residents are not eligible to apply.

The application form requires artists to include :
–A current CV listing education, significant exhibitions, awards, grants, residencies, and published writings.
–An artist statement.
–A proposal outlining the specific research project to be pursued while in residency at Amant NY, explaining how it would benefit from the context of New York City.
–A portfolio of 10 work samples that includes corresponding captions and short descriptions. Videos, films, and sound recordings should include up to 5 hyperlinks to external websites. Writers, poets, historians, or theorists should include samples of published writing (samples can include essays, poems, blogposts, book chapters, but not entire books). Those applying as an artist duo should only submit examples of collaborative work.
–Specific people and/or places in New York that are relevant to the research project.
–Professional references.
–All submissions must be in English.

Please carefully read the Q&A section before applying.

About Amant
Amant is a non-profit arts organization in Brooklyn, New York City and Chiusure, Siena (Italy) founded in 2019. We are a non-collecting institution that fosters experimentation and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs, and artist residencies.

We support both established and mid-career international and local artists who work across diverse creative fields. We are committed to building cultural partnerships with like-minded organizations in the US and abroad, while activating new and ongoing conversations with our local communities.

Konsthall C is one of the most exciting art spaces in Northern Europe. Located in a former laundry space in a suburb of Stockholm, we have created exhibitions, events and projects since 2004, often in close partnerships with our local communities.

As borders are opening up again, so are we. This fall features a series of open calls aimed at artists, researchers, programmers and students, to participate in Konsthall C’s program.

Artistic Director Ulrika Flink’s program examines people’s voice and language, i.e. the ability to speak and to formulate oneself in relation to one’s own and others’ rights. Every voice arises through interaction with the voices, dreams and lives of others. The program has brought together practices that relate to the relationship between individual and collective voices. The ability to see someone else in oneself—and based on this insight, act and speak  in the world—is one of life’s moral pillars, inspired by the Martinique poet and philosopher Édouard Glissant.

Ulrika Flink has invited practitioners that engage in collective thinking and intervene into the present. Embedded in the program is a rich, rigorous, powerful poetry of language, combined with tools for listening that gives the viewer keys to a deeper understanding of the effects of structural violence and the need to envision different forms of resistance and radical emancipation.

Konsthall C is special in its close connections between program and structure. Its form allows for experiments and changes that impact the organisation. The themes addressed in the exhibitions informs the way we operate as a collective. This is an invitation to our international community, to participate in the construction of a new type of art organisation.

Here is how you can get involved :

Open call for residency : Transforming Bricks and Mortar
Konsthall C’s AiR-platform The Research Station welcomes artists, researchers, writers and activists to apply for our two upcoming residencies focusing on the transformative potential in building a decolonial art institution from the inside and out. Selected applicants are invited to work with any aspect of Konsthall C’s organisational structure and program to help uncover new ways of building an accountable and open institutional structure.
Application deadline is December 12, 2021 at 11pm.
Read more here.

Open call for programmers
We are looking for programmers or designers with programming skills, or people interested in developing new forms of presenting art online, to create a digital exhibition space. The platform will be made use of by both Konsthall C and local artists in Hökarängen.
Application deadline is December 12 2021 at 11pm.

Blitz Valletta is an independent, not-for-profit, contemporary art space that has supported original and radical arts practice in all its forms since 2013, through an international programme of residencies, exhibitions, and public engagement activities. Blitz Valletta is pleased to launch an open call for three digital artistic residences that will take place in 2022 and expand OPEN, an online platform founded in 2020, aimed at further developing Blitz Valletta’s activities in the virtual space and exploring the most recent trends and researches in the digital landscape. The international open call is exclusive to recent graduates—from 2017 onwards—with no age limit and for this first edition, one residency will be awarded to a Maltese artist to support our local artistic community.

The new OPEN Digital Residency Programme will expand Blitz’s engagement in contemporary art, both locally and internationally, by means of cross-fertilization between artists and professionals within the digital landscape—from virtual reality, to gaming and blockchain technology—which have significantly developed in Malta in the past decade. With a specific interest in art circulation beyond physical spaces, our digital programme turns Blitz Valletta into a post studies e-training ground and experimental production space. Each selected artist will participate in a tailored, international mentorship programme and awarded a 2,000 EUR grant to develop a new digital artwork in collaboration with Blitz’s curatorial team. The research and production phase will last one month, followed by an online exhibition lasting two months.

In eight years of activities, Blitz has organized several exhibitions, plus conferences, workshops, commissions and talks, including a three-year residency project (2015-2018) which received mentions by ArtBasel Crowdfunding initiative and Tate Art Exchange Programme. Since 2019, Blitz has kicked off a new curated programme which reflects the institution’s commitment to support Malta-based artists abroad, while engaging with international artists at home. Blitz’s exhibition programme has presented, for the first time in Malta, the work of international artists such as Cory Arcangel, John Coplans, Sara Cwynar, Jesse Darling, Eva Kotátková, Simon Fujiwara, Adrian Paci, Rob Pruitt, Amalia Ulman and Tobias Zielony, alongside Maltese artists including Kane Cali, Charlie Cauchi and Pierre Portelli. Their work is a portal to rethinking the boundaries of art making all while exploring the big questions of contemporary existence.

In response to a recently altered reality, Blitz decided to operate in three spaces equally relevant to its community : online through OPEN, in the physical galleries and in the city of Valletta. OPEN embraces the possibilities presented by the elimination of physical distance and geographical borders of online platforms. Through this boundless, virtual space, Blitz explores art’s capacity to redefine collective imagination locally and internationally and to connect Malta’s IT landscape to an international art practice. Through this new programme, we also keep expanding Blitz’s dialogue with younger audiences and future generations.

ARS ELECTRONICA
 
Location
Linz, Austria

 
12 Regional S+T+ARTS Centers from 11 different countries have set out to address the unintended consequences of steadfast technological development resulting in the European continent’s present social, economic, and environmental challenges.

To repair the present, the EU’s economy must be transformed and adapted for the sustainable future we all want. The Regional S+T+ARTS Centers focus on a ​resource, urban​, ​ICT & ​art-driven​ transformation as the path towards reconfiguring the social, cultural and economic fabric.

The 12 Regional S+T+ARTS Centers, Europe’s leading cultural and arts institutions, innovation and cleantech hubs, have defined 21 challenges that need to be addressed in their regions and are calling for international artists to join them in finding artistic, innovative solutions. The 21 challenges have been informed by the EU Green Deal and the EU New Bauhaus to reflect pan-European or global issues that nonetheless, require a focus on local regions. Each of the challenges will be addressed in a 6-month fellowship. The 21 fellowships will encourage artists to critique the present, explore beyond its current limitations and reimagine sustainable futures.

We are calling all international artists that want to be catalysts for change and active contributors to innovation. If you want to help change behaviours, reduce waste, fight climate change, improve energy efficiency or make cities and communities more sustainable – in essence, challenge existing actions and propose more responsible and sustainable ones, we want to hear from you.

 

Timeline :
Fellowship : February 2022 – August 2022
Exhibiting & Impact dissemination : September 2022- December 2022
Budget per fellowship : €40.000

Funded Residencies 2022/23
Open Call for Applications

Cove Park’s annual open call is now live and we are pleased to accept applications to our funded residency programme for 2022/23.

This call is open to national and international artists, cultural practitioners, and researchers at every career stage and working individually and collaboratively in all art forms, in the creative industries, and across disciplines. 

Cove Park’s residencies support research, the development of existing and new projects, collaboration, interdisciplinary practice, and the production of new work and ideas. We host between 12 to 20 residents at any one time, and Cove Park’s team provide the support and care necessary to ensure each residency is as productive, engaging, and enjoyable as possible. 

We are pleased to accept applications from those wishing to engage with Cove Park’s first enquiry connected to the environmental crisis. This enquiry-based model – for the production of cross-disciplinary work and collective intelligence around pressing global concerns – is founded upon the belief that artistic research is uniquely placed to unpack some of the most acute problems of our times, and that the transformative power of the arts is amplified through collaboration and exchange with other disciplines, including academic and scientific research. During 2022 Cove Park will offer opportunities for residents to take part in and actively contribute to this enquiry.

We also welcome applications from those who urgently require the time, support, and facilities Cove Park can offer to develop their own work. A presentation or participation in a public event is not a requirement for our funded programme, but we are keen to support those who wish to work within and contribute to a community of artists, creative practitioners, and researchers, and to benefit from the experience of working alongside individuals and collaborators from a wide range of backgrounds and specialisms. 

This year, reflecting the development of Cove Park’s programme and our ambition to involve as wide a range of disciplines and sectors as possible, Cove Park is no longer producing separate Application Guidelines for individual art-form focussed residency strands. Instead, one set of Guidelines accompany one application form for general funded residencies in 2022/2023.

These residencies include a fee payable to the resident of £450 per week, a travel allowance, and a materials allowance (when relevant), and will take place at Cove Park between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023. 

Former residents and members of the Cove Park Associates programme are welcome to apply through this open call. Please scroll down for details of this programme.

For further information and the link for the Application Form please see the Application Guidelines.

The deadline for applications is Monday 20 December 2021.

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 2022. The artwork will activate the basin by engaging with the local community and visitors to the waterfront. This Call is open to all interested Canadian artists and artist teams with relevant experience as practicing professional artists.

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 broad context in mind, artists are asked to develop work that explores water as a connector. They should consider the histories 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

This is a one-stage competition. Submissions will be reviewed by an independent evaluation panel convened for this project. Waterfront Toronto intends to identify one successful Artist or Artist Team to undertake this project.

Budget

The total commissioning budget is $60,000 CAD +HST. This includes all artist fees, design costs, materials, shipping, installation and removal, insurance and permits.

About Nairy Baghramian, 2022 Nasher Prize Laureate
Nairy Baghramian is a German citizen born in 1971 in Iran. She is a visual artist living and working in Berlin since 1984. Her work explores the relation of modeling, molding, and casting—interrelated elements of sculpture production involving positive and negative forms, and she consistently humanizes this largely mechanical process through overt or oblique references to the body.  Using an abstract vocabulary that often combines geometric and organic forms, as well as industrial materials and processes with elements that appear soft and supple, Baghramian highlights the subtle ligatures uniting disparate human activities.

Baghramian was a nominee of the Hugo Boss Prize 2020 and has been the recipient of the Malcolm-McLaren-Award with Maria Hassabi (2019) ; the Zurich Art Prize (2016) ; the Arnold-Bode Prize, Kassel (2014) ; the Hector Prize, Kunsthalle Mannheim (2012) ; and the Ernst Schering Foundation Award (2007). Her works are held in institutional collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York ; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco ; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York ; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis ; Tate Modern, London ; MUDAM, Luxembourg ; Tamayo Museum, Mexico City ; Jumex Museum, Mexico City ; and the Art Institute of Chicago. Upcoming solo exhibitions of Nairy Baghramian include Secession, Vienna AT, 2021 ; and Carré d’Art, Nîmes, France, April 2022. Baghramian will be the subject of a long-planned solo exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center, unaffiliated with the Nasher Prize, in fall 2022.

No. 105 – Dossier Nouvel nouvel age

Date de tombée : 10 janvier 2022


Tel un spectre malicieux ou une force surnaturelle indocile, la résurgence ponctuelle des croyances occultes – sorcellerie, divination, astrologie, magie, alchimie – hante depuis toujours l’histoire de l’humanité. Tour à tour ennemi du Christianisme, pierre d’achoppement de la logique kantienne ou carrément menace du patriarcat (la sorcière étant une figure « maléfique » puissante largement revendiquée par les féministes), cet engouement sporadique pour le mystique et ses innombrables déclinaisons semble être le symptôme tangible d’une lassitude sourde face à l’ordre établi et aux systèmes de pensée hégémoniques. Aujourd’hui encore, l’intérêt renouvelé pour le mysticisme et les modalités d’agentivité et de pouvoir parallèles qu’il suggère se fait l’écho de l’inertie politique générale. Des concoctions hormonales « faites maison » aux pratiques animistes antispécistes, les multiples stratégies offertes par ce nouvel nouvel âge, comme nous serions tenté·e·s de le nommer à la suite du mouvement contre-culturel occidental des années 1970, répondent au besoin pressant d’agir hors d’un néolibéralisme qui tue, petit à petit, notre planète et les relationalités qui s’y jouent. Mais bien plus qu’une simple riposte ésotérique, l’existence de forces occultes – ou de forces théoriquement inexplicables – semble désormais entérinée par la science elle-même, à preuve les récentes découvertes de la mécanique quantique et des états presque « magiques » de la matière, ouvrant toute grande la porte au mysticisme quantique ! Si l’occulte séduit et fait peur tout à la fois, c’est qu’il ne peut être assujetti, qu’il n’a de cesse de se dérober au sens commun.

[…] Figure incontournable de ces croisements disciplinaires et icône iconoclaste par excellence pour nombre d’artistes actuel·le·s, la sorcière est d’ailleurs une source incontournable d’inspiration. Guérisseuse, chamane, alchimiste, herboriste, magicienne et sybille, la sorcière appelle à une décolonisation des savoirs et de la spiritualité, à l’effritement du patriarcat et du capitalisme, à une affinité intime avec la nature et le cosmos, au métissage des arts et de l’artisanat, du politique et du magique. Loin d’être la seule à caractériser ce nouvel nouvel âge, la sorcière s’accompagne d’une multiplicité d’entités réelles et imaginaires, de méthodologies queers, de posture antispécistes et de formes de création hybride repoussant toujours davantage les frontières de l’art. À la lumière des perspectives ouvertes par ce nouvel nouvel âge, ce dossier cherche à explorer les croisements entre ces approches multiformes de l’occulte et de la spiritualité 2.0 et les pratiques artistiques actuelles.
