Pour souligner son 50e anniversaire, la Banque d’art du Conseil des arts a lancé un nouveau programme d’acquisition d’œuvres assorti d’un budget de 600 000 $.

L’appel de candidatures 2022 est un programme prometteur qui aura de vastes retombées dans l’ensemble du milieu artistique du Canada.

Le Centre CLARK invite les artistes, les collectifs et les commissaires à soumettre un projet d’exposition dans le cadre de notre appel de dossiers général pour la programmation de septembre 2023 à juin 2024. Qu’il s’agisse d’exposer les œuvres d’artistes émergents ou aguerris, locaux ou internationaux, CLARK soutient une pluralité d’approches et de pratiques artistiques novatrices et expérimentales. Notre programmation annuelle présente une multiplicité de voix, de perspectives, d’héritages, de points de vue et d’expériences qui se traduisent en autant de formes d’art actuel. Cette multiplicité se concrétise entre autres par l’inclusion d’une pluralité culturelle, par l’échange intergénérationnel et par l’équité des genres.
Le centre possède deux espaces d’exposition (pour plus de détails, veuillez consulter le plan de la galerie). Nous offrons une salle par soumission, sauf pour certains projets de groupe qui se verront exceptionnellement attribuer les deux salles. CLARK est aussi sensible aux questions environnementales ; ainsi, le comité de programmation prendra celles-ci en considération lors de l’évaluation des dossiers. À titre d’exemple, la construction de murs en gypse et la peinture complète des salles ne sont pas encouragées, sauf si cela est essentiel au projet.
Les dossiers seront étudiés et sélectionnés par un comité de programmation diversifié formé de membres artistes et de commissaires du centre, ainsi que d’une partie de l’équipe de CLARK.

Call for artists for 22nd edition
Application period : August 1–September 2, 2022
Sesc 24 de Maio
Rua 24 de Maio
From August 1 through September 2, 2022, the 22nd Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil holds an open call for artists. This edition will be held in October 2023, in São Paulo, after being postponed for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Biennial will receive submissions of works in any format and language, from artists and/or collectives born and/or based in countries of the Global South, from the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP), or residing in them for at least five years, as well as Indigenous artists of any nationality.
About the 22nd Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil
With its characteristic dynamism, the event reaches its 22nd edition in 2023 with the title “Memory is an editing station”—a sentence taken from the poem “Open Letter to John Ashbery,” by Waly Salomão (1943–2003). Curated by the Raphael Fonseca, from Brazil, and Renée Akitelek Mboya, from Kenya, the Biennial also marks the 40th anniversary of Videobrasil, initially an event dedicated to video, but which over the decades expanded to the most varied artistic media. In this celebration, “it is therefore necessary not only to reflect on time and the many conceptions of memory, but also to revisit the importance of video in these four decades,” write the curators. It is also worth noting that in contemporaneity, the possibilities of editing have been transformed, and become more agile and within reach of our fingertips in many technological devices of everyday use.
Far beyond these particular “editing stations,” the 22nd Biennial seeks to select works that address collective memories, the dynamic of remembrance and forgetfulness that build historical and social narratives, related to peoples, nations and geographic regions. “What are the ethical boundaries of a cut ?” Who holds the power to do so ? How to forge the memory of what we didn’t see or feel in our bodies ? What are the limits of memory ?”, question the curators.
Founder and artistic director of Videobrasil, who held her first Festival in 1983, Solange Farkas calls attention to the context in which the open call for artists is being held, after more than two years of a pandemic that has left millions dead around the globe. The idea of survival, therefore, emerges as an essential desire, as well as the need to look at such a recent and already traumatic past. “Surviving in the face of adversity is necessary, and the Biennial cherishes the expression of different voices, ways of negotiating the historical past and forms of reflecting on image creation today.”
Those selected will take part in the exhibition at Sesc 24 de Maio (São Paulo, Brazil) and compete for the following prizes, to be awarded by the 22nd Biennial :
State of the Art Award : given to the work considered by the jury to be the most thought-provoking, powerful and significant in the Biennial.
Sesc Contemporary Art Award : given to outstanding works in the 22nd Biennial, produced by Brazilian artists and/or collectives that will be included in the Sesc Brazilian Art Collection.
O.F.F. Award : offered by the Ostrovsky Family Fund, it is given to a participating artist, of any nationality, who presents an original investigation of the moving image.
Artistic residency prizes will also be given, which will provide residency periods at partner institutions. Prizes include airfare, accommodation and per diem during residencies, which have an eight-week duration.
About the organizers
Associação Cultural Videobrasil
Founded by Solange Farkas in 1991, Associação Cultural Videobrasil is the result of the desire to institutionally host the growing collection of works and publications gathered since the first Festival Videobrasil, held in 1983. Since then, the association has been working systematically to activate its collection, which brings together pieces from the Global South, classics of video art and in-house works and a vast collection of publications on art. In addition to the Sesc_Videobrasil Biennial, the Association also carries out important activities of research, diffusion and mapping concerning its collection : national and international exhibitions ; touring shows ; publications ; TV programs ; documentaries ; seminars ; workshops and meetings with artists and researchers ; and artistic residency programs, in connection with a worldwide collaborative network.
Sesc—Social Service of Commerce
Sesc—Social Service of Commerce is a private, non-profit institution created in 1946 by entrepreneurs in the fields of commerce and services throughout Brazil. In the state of São Paulo, Sesc has over 40 centers focused in the areas of culture, education, sports, leisure and health. Sesc São Paulo receives roughly 20 million visits annually. The work of Sesc São Paulo is guided by its educational role and by the pursuit of social well-being based on a broad notion of culture. In this sense, the unlimited access to the spaces and contents offered by the institution targets at the democratization of cultural assets as a form of autonomy of the individual. In the field of visual arts, the institution’s main role is to foster and disseminate the contemporary artistic production and the study of the production of previous historical periods, as well as the intersections with other artistic languages, having as its central guideline the organization of exhibitions for all audiences.

CUVO Videoart Festival 2023 Open Call
Category : Conceptual, Digital, Video
Location : Spain
Deadline : September 30, 2022
Yet, It Moves !
June 1, 2023–October 1
Proposal deadline : September 1, 2022, 11:59pm
Hours : Wednesday–Sunday 11am–6pm,

In 2021 Copenhagen Contemporary was awarded the biggest Scandinavian art prize, the Bikuben Foundation’s Vision Exhibition Award, for the winning project Yet, It Moves !—a visionary research project and public art exhibition in Copenhagen that investigate the interconnected movements across scales, from the micro—to the macrocosmos.
In connection with Yet, It Moves !, CC now launches an open call for artists, architects, designers, curators, landscape architects or others who are in any way professionally engaged in art or architecture in the public space to send us proposals for two kinds of contributions.
With this call we open the project and its implementation to artists whose research has investigated or is currently exploring themes related to the interface between art and science like the ones we are keen to research in Yet, It Moves !
You can find all the information on the Open Call here.
About Yet, It Moves !
The project is realized in collaboration with four scientific research partners : DARK at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, Arts at CERN in Geneva, The Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University, and the Program in Performance Studies and ModLab (Digital Humanities Laboratory) University of California, Davis.
The project’s groundbreaking vision, its course and artistic product consist in bringing the overlapping spheres of interest between artists and scientists into play. Thus initiating new research by exchanging different perspectives and exploring paths that combine the different methods and perspectives. As a result Yet, It Moves ! will unfold through a series of decentralized art installations shown at different locations in Copenhagen from May to October 2023, creating opportunities for people to encounter contemporary art in new ways as the art will live in the city interacting with people on a daily base.
A city on the move
There are millions of movements taking place simultaneously in the cosmos : from the explosion of Supernovae to the constant expansion of our universe, the incessant movement of neutrinos and nuclear fusion. The universe is filled with unstoppable movement from the macro to the micro level. The human brain can barely grasp them, but these movements exist no matter whether we acknowledge them or not. With this open call we want to compare the city to a microcosmos where many different movements and lives co-exist simultaneously, going in many different directions. This is something people may not reflect upon on a daily basis, but something that this project would like to showcase letting it be reflected and imprinted on the city.
The proposals will be accepted from July 1-September 1, 2022.
Deadline for submission : September 1, 2022, at midnight.
Proposals should be be sent through this link.

No. 107 : Famille
Date de tombée : 1er septembre 2022
Principal fondement de l’organisation sociale et premier lieu de socialisation, la famille bénéficie d’une attention particulière dans les arts visuels depuis le début de l’histoire de l’art. Produire des images de la famille a permis de marquer une distribution traditionnelle et idéalisée des rôles, de renforcer des conventions et des valeurs, de faire valoir, à partir de l’intimité, de notre besoin fondamental de connexion et d’appartenance.[…] Alors que l’art contemporain semble bien engagé dans une mise en examen des pratiques culturelles, la famille est réinvestie sous toutes ses formes. Puisant notamment dans le potentiel narratif du rituel photographique, nombre de pratiques actuelles revisitent ses traditions, ses lieux et ses tabous, interrogent ce qu’elle a d’indicible à partir des archives et inventent à partir d’expériences biographiques ou autobiographiques de nouvelles formes intimes de sociabilité. Pour ce numéro, Esse arts + opinions invite les auteur·es à réfléchir aux histoires de famille telles qu’elles sont réécrites en art actuel. Quels portraits les artistes proposent-iels ? Quel·les artistes choisissent de travailler en famille ? Comment le monde de l’enfance et la vie de famille sont-ils représentés ? Comment les artistes réactivent-iels les savoirs techniques ou ancestraux reçus en héritage ? Au moment où le grand rêve se fragilise, comment l’art traite-il de ses itérations contemporaines dans ses versions reconstruites ? L’art peut-il contribuer à la réinvention plus honnête et plus diversifié de ce que la tradition a constitué en mythe ?
C’est avec confiance que l’Association des groupes en arts visuels francophones amorce une transition de son leadership et sollicite l’aide de notre réseau pour diffuser le plus largement possible l’appel à candidatures au poste de direction générale.

The Art Museum at the University of Toronto is an internationally renowned centre for contemporary art and interdisciplinary inquiry located on the University of Toronto’s downtown campus, in Canada’s largest and most diverse city.

Barnicke Gallery at Hart House and the University of Toronto Art Centre at University College), the Art Museum offers intensive cycles of programming dedicated to artistic and curatorial experimentation. Featuring works in a wide array of traditional and contemporary media, the Art Museum’s exhibitions are further complemented by energetic offsite projects, digitally accessible programs, and research engaging with the University of Toronto’s extensive contemporary and historical collections.

An integral part of all our programs are the in-depth and wide-ranging experiential opportunities for students and faculty, emerging and established scholars, visitors and communities alike—with mentorships, academic and co-curricular engagement, co-productions, partnerships, and other participatory programs and possibility of involvement—to catalyze the possibility of transdisciplinary knowledge and greater awareness of the worlds we share.
Above all, the Art Museum aspires to be a welcoming meeting point to bring into conversation the university community and broader publics.
