Le concours international 60 Secondes Radio 2021 est heureux de souligner la 10e Journée mondiale de la radio de l’UNESCO avec le lancement de sa 7e édition. 60 Secondes Radio invite les artisans de la radio et du son à produire une capsule de 60 secondes radio précises et récompensera les lauréats(tes) sélectionnés(es), des Transistors d’Or, d’Argent et de Bronze.

Ce concours témoigne des valeurs qui sont chères aux artistes radiophoniques, dans leur désir de communiquer, de parler à l’autre, mais aussi d’exprimer à travers l’art radiophonique de nouvelles manières de faire et d’entendre la radio. L’ADN de 60 Secondes Radio est fait dune passion pour la radio qui résonne aujourd’hui parmi les créateurs de presque tous les continents. « La créativité et la générosité des artistes du monde entier qui répondent à l’appel me comblent de joie et donnent du souffle à mes utopies », déclare Boris Chassagne, directeur de 60 Secondes Radio.

Du haut de ses cent ans, la radio et ses artisans ont su faire preuve de résilience.

60 Secondes Radio est ouvert à toutes les écoles de création radiophonique : création radiophonique, fiction, collage, sound art, dramatiques, docs de création, paysages sonores, propositions mutantes, radio cosmique, etc. Création artistique, innovation, originalité demeurent les critères de base qui guideront les jurys.

« L’impatience collective est palpable. De l’œsophage au gros intestin, de l’ischiojambier à la plante des pieds et des vertèbres cervicales jusqu’à l’amygdale, les respirations profondes ne suffisent plus à délier les tensions — et sont même déconseillées. »

Verticale — centre d’artistes (VCA) invite les artistes, les collectifs et les commissaires à soumettre leur projet dans le cadre de l’appel « Fermentation, science et fiction » pour sa programmation bisannuelle 2021—23. VCA désire s’ancrer dans les bouleversements fertiles du présent et dans la projection d’un futur incertain, quoique imminent. Il sait que, chez lui comme ailleurs, dans la lenteur et l’isolement, des processus se sont enclenchés. Car ces transformations en latence, au-dedans comme au-dehors, ont seulement l’apparence de l’inactivité. […]

Période de diffusion : entre septembre 2021 et août 2023 

VCA diffuse hors les murs. Le centre reçoit des projets qui prennent en compte l’espace physique et/ou social de la diffusion, et qui proposent une réflexion sur les types de lieux, de publics et/ou de contextes à aborder. Par conséquent, VCA accompagne les artistes dans le travail de prospection et d’intégration des œuvres, de manière à ce que la configuration choisie pour la diffusion soit signifiante pour chaque projet et pratique individuelle.

submissions from Canadian clay, glass and copper enamel artists for Confined, a national group exhibition.

In March 2020, Covid-19 brought all of us to a standstill. Many artists didn’t even have access to their studios. As Covid-19 continues to affect us all in our daily life, we invite clay, glass, and copper enamel artists to express in their art what the imposed confinement meant for them.

Mental health issues, anxiety, financial burden for some, but also time to reflect, conceptualise, create for others, the conflict and diversification of personal and professional life are possible themes…and more.

Multi-media works and those that incorporate new media within the use of clay, glass, and copper enamelling will be considered.

The selected works will be presented in the exhibition starting in January 2022. A publication will also be produced. The Gallery will provide an artist fee (as set out by CARFAC) to the selected artists and cover the costs of shipping and insurance for the duration of the exhibition.

We welcome submissions from all qualified applicants and encourage submissions from groups that are typically underrepresented in institutional spaces, including racialized and Indigenous individuals, LGBTQ2S+ identifying individuals, francophone individuals, Deaf persons, and persons with disabilities. If you require any accommodations during the submissions process, please contact assistant [arobas] theclayandglass [point] ca or 519-746-1882 ext : 235.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE
All materials must be emailed to assistant [arobas] theclayandglass [point] ca with the subject line “Confined” by Friday April 2, 2021. Notification of the results will be sent by June 2021.

SUBMISSION MATERIALS
In a single document, emailed to assistant [arobas] theclayandglass [point] ca, with the subject line “Confined”, please submit :

A written statement describing the work that you propose for the exhibition as well as its significance to the theme (50-100 words). Works in-progress and concepts for works to be completed will also be considered.
Up to 5 images of your work, including titles and dimensions of works. Provide sketches for works that have not yet been completed.
An artist statement describing your practice, interests, and what the concept of confinement means to you (up to 250 words).
A CV that includes, at minimum, your education as well as any relevant exhibition, publication, and installation history (maximum 3 pages).


ABOUT THE GALLERY
Located in Waterloo, Ontario, the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is Canada’s only gallery dedicated to the exhibition and collecting of contemporary Canadian clay, glass, and copper enamelling. Through exhibition programs, publications, clay and glass studios, and an archival centre and library, the Gallery supports research and creation by emerging, mid-career, and established artists. The Gallery is accessible, with the exception of exhibitions and events held in the John A. Pollock Family Courtyard, which is not fully accessible to visitors with particular mobility aids at this time.

We acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River.

VIFF ANNOUNCES 2021 FESTIVAL DATES & CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) announced today that its 40th edition
will take place from September 30 – October 10, 2021. The landmark edition will
feature both in-cinema and online screenings, with approximately 100
features and 100
shorts to be screened in a showcase of exceptional films from around
the world. The scope of VIFF’s brick-and-mortar events will be determined in the
coming months as the organization continues to closely monitor the COVID-19
situation.

Submissions for the 2021 Festival are now open via FilmFreeway
www.filmfreeway.com/VIFF – for features, documentaries and short films, as well as
narrative-lead virtual and immersive content.

Featuring an extensive and diverse collection of contemporary Canadian cinema, VIFF

enlightening dialogue. VIFF’s 2020 edition featured 65 Canadian features and shorts
playing in competition. 52 % of those selections were by female filmmakers and 45 %
were by BIPOC filmmakers. Likewise, it included international work from 65 countries,
including narratives that demonstrate originality, documentaries that change the way
we see the world, and short films that push
the form to its limits.

“The adversity presented by the pandemic hasnt just forced us to adapt our approach
to programming and presentation, its demanded that we re-envision how we
meaningfully engage with creators and connect audiences with vital work,” said Curtis
Woloschuk, VIFFs Associate Director of Programming. “We cant wait to bring our
collective inspiration to bear as we once again reinvent ourselves for our 40th edition.”

The 2021 VIFF will once again expand the frame to include conferences, talks,
workshops and other unique events that celebrate innovations in cinematic storytelling.
At VIFFs 2020 edition, these events included talks with the likes of Charlie Kaufman
(Im Thinking of Ending Things), Garrett Bradley (Time) and Eliza Hittman (Never
Rarely Sometimes Always), the VIFF Immersed Exhibition of narrative-driven VR
experiences, VIFF Labs, the VIFF AMP Music in Film Summit, and an evening of music
and conversation with Beverly Glenn-Copeland (Keyboard Fantasies).

Furthermore, VIFF is inviting immersive storytellers from British Columbia and around
the world to submit their narrative-driven Virtual and Augmented Reality (XR) content
to the International VIFF Immersed Competition. Finalists will be showcased at the
VIFF Immersed Exhibition during this year’s Festival. In 2020, the VIFF Immersed
Exhibition was hosted across six online channels ” making it the most widely
accessible festival platform for story-driven XR content.

Submissions are now open for all sections of the Festival :
features, documentaries, short films, and VIFF Immersed. More info can be found at

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.

2020 is the 35th anniversary of the Franklin Furnace Fund. Initiated in 1985 with the support of Jerome Foundation, Franklin Furnace has annually awarded grants to early career artists selected by peer panel review to enable them to produce major performance art works in New York.
 
In the spring of 2008, Franklin Furnace combined the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art and The Future of the Present programs into one, entitled the Franklin Furnace Fund. Franklin Furnace made the decision to combine these programs because during the last decade, artists have created works on every point of the spectrum between the body of the artist and the circulatory network of the Internet in the creation of temporal work.
 
The Franklin Furnace Fund is supported in 2021–2022 by Jerome Foundation and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Grants range between $2,000 and $10,000 based on the peer review panel allocation of funding received by Franklin Furnace. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply ; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York City. Full-time students are ineligible.
 
Franklin Furnace has no curator ; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of “early career artist” and “performance art.” So, if at first you don’t succeed, please try again.
 
Since 1985, the Fund has helped launch the careers of Jo Andres, Tanya Barfield, Jibz Cameron aka Dynasty Handbag, Lenora Champagne, Patty Chang, Papo Colo, Brody Condon, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Karen Finley, John Fleck, Coco Fusco, Kate Gilmore, Pablo Helguera, Donna Henes, Murray Hill, Holly Hughes, Liz Magic Laser, Taylor Mac, Robbie McCauley, Jennifer Miller, Naeem Mohaiemen, Rashaad Newsome, Clifford Owens, Pope.L, Dread Scott, Pamela Sneed, Fiona Templeton and Diane Torr, among other fund recipients.

CAG + Ground Floor

WEDGE RESIDENCY

A residency for early-emerging artists
Deadline to apply : Sunday, March 14, 5pm PDT

The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) and Ground Floor have teamed up to create
WEDGE RESIDENCY, a new residency program for early-emerging artists located in
the North Gallery at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver. CAG and Ground
Floor
operate as uninvited guests on the ancestral and sacred lands of the xmkwy”m
(Musqueam), Swxw7mesh (Squamish) and slilwta/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations,
lands which were never ceded or surrendered.

An early-emerging artist is broadly defined by Ground Floor as an artist of any age with
minimal experience or access to opportunities within arts institutions, who demonstrate
a commitment to their practice and a desire to engage with a larger community. In
addition to those who identify as artists, this may include those who identify as
curators, writers, community-based practitioners or creatives in any field.

This self-directed residency will provide participants with a stipend, semi-private studio
space, and support to further develop their practice, as well as the opportunity to
expand their connections to a wider arts community in Vancouver. Applicants currently
in need of space are encouraged to apply.

Over the course of the residency, participants will have the
opportunity to speak one-
on-one with artists/curators about their practice, build on their professional skills,
develop a public- facing initiative, and gain insight into the framework of both an
established institution and a DIY art collective.

CALL TO ARTISTS FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI) PUBLIC ARTWORK FOR EGLINTON WAY BIA IN TORONTO
Value of the Awarded Commission : Approximately $50,000 CAD (inclusive) per artwork
Deadline for Submissions : March 17, 2021 by 11:59 pm EST.

STEPS Public Art, the Eglinton Way Business Improvement Area (BIA) and the City of Toronto invite Ontario-based professional artists (including artist teams) to submit their Expression of Interest to the first stage of a competition for public artwork(s) that will be installed at one (1) of five (5) locations along Eglinton Avenue West in 2021 and 2022.

The sculptures will be selected through an open, two-stage competition, with a total budget of approximately $50,000 (inclusive) per artwork. The project budget includes all costs directly associated with the artwork : including fees for design, fabrication, installation, engineering and professional services, insurance, travel and other incidental expenses.

For the full details regarding this opportunity please click here.

COMMUNITY BACKGROUND
Situated at a nine-block stretch at the north end of Toronto’s Forest Hill neighbourhood, the Eglinton Way BIA is a picturesque and pedestrian-friendly area that is considered to be one of Toronto’s most fashionable shopping districts.

Like many other BIAs along Eglinton Avenue West, the BIA has been impacted over the years by the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. By partnering with the City of Toronto to commission these public artworks, the Eglinton Way BIA hopes to create a truly unique art and shopping experience outdoors, unlike anything the city has ever seen.

The BIA’s goal over the next five (5) years is to bring twenty-five (25) of these sculptures into the neighbourhood.

PROJECT DETAILS
Following a competitive Selection Panel process, shortlisted artists will be asked to develop a design concept for one (1) site. The sites will be assigned to each of the shortlisted artists. The five (5) sites within the Eglinton Way BIA catchment area will be described in detail in the Terms of Reference (TOR) for the short-listed artists.

TWO-STAGE COMPETITION
This is a two-stage, open, Ontario-wide competition for professional artists.

Per the Canada Council’s guidelines, a professional artist is defined as someone who :

has specialized artistic training (not necessarily in academic institutions) ;
is recognized as a professional by their peers (artists working in the same artistic tradition) ;
has a history of public exhibitions ; and/ or
has produced an independent body of work
A specially convened Selection Panel, composed of practicing arts professionals, BIA and community members, will be established for this competition.

Stage 1 : Request for Expression of Interest : March 17th – May 1st, 2021

The Selection Panel will review all submissions and meet in early April 2021 to identify a short-list of ten (10) artists, based on artistic excellence, relevant experience and demonstrated or perceived ability to create and execute an innovative, engaging public artwork that is complementary to the overall design scheme and community context.

Stage 2 : Request for Concepts : May 3rd – June 30th, 2021

The short-listed artists will be notified after the selection panel’s first meeting and invited to participate in a four (4) week concept development period, which will result in a final concept design proposal and budget. A detailed TOR document will be provided to short-listed artists, with all of the information required to prepare and submit their full proposals. Short-listed artists will be paid a fee of $1000.00 (inclusive) for this stage.

Each proposal will first undergo a technical review by City staff, in order to assess them for safety and maintenance concerns. Each artist will receive their technical feedback notes and have time to incorporate them into their proposals, if necessary. Proposals that are deemed not technically viable will not advance to the interview stage.

Following the technical review, shortlisted artists will attend a community Open House (virtual or in-person, depending on current Public Health Recommendations) and present their proposals to the community in late-May 2021 (date TBC). The community will provide feedback that will be consolidated and shared with the shortlisted artists and the selection panel. Each artist will have time to incorporate them into their proposals.

Shortlisted artists will attend an interview (virtual or in-person) and present their proposals to the Selection Panel in June 2021 (date TBC). The panel will choose five (5) artists whose vision for the site best suits the overall scope and intent of this project, and has the ability or perceived ability to conceive and realize a public artwork on this site.

The selected artists will be notified in early July 2021. Three (3) works will be fabricated and installed by November 2021. Two (2) works to be fabricated and installed in early 2022. Artists selected to install works in 2022 will be asked to sign a Letter of Intent.

 Date de tombée : 4 avril 2021
 
Dossier 264 – Automne 2021
« La création sur le temps long : durée, lenteur, ralentissement »

Le dossier thématique « La création sur le temps long : durée, lenteur, ralentissement » cherche à identifier des démarches artistiques récentes qui s’appuient sur une réflexion sur la longue durée et les œuvres qui adviennent par le ralentissement, la lenteur, les processus ouverts, la succession en cycles ; celles qui visent une dérégularisation du temps, ou encore une décentralisation de l’expérience de la durée. Nous cherchons ainsi à identifier les significations culturelles de la lenteur, du temps et de la durée selon le prisme de la création artistique. Les propositions peuvent cibler les champs connexes de la techno-critique, de l’écologie, de l’animisme, de la santé mentale, du vieillissement ou de la généalogie.

Toutes les soumissions pour le dossier doivent comprendre une proposition de texte en lien avec la thématique, incluant le sujet anticipé (250 mots), la liste des artistes et des œuvres qui seront analysés dans le texte, trois extraits de textes antérieurs (publiés ou non) ainsi qu’une courte biographie de l’autrice ou de l’auteur (40 mots), et être envoyées à redaction [arobas] viedesarts [point] com avant le 4 avril 2021. Nous ferons un suivi avec les propositions pressenties et les textes finaux, suivant l’entente préalablement prise avec la rédaction, devront être rendus au courant du mois de juillet 2021 pour une publication dans le numéro 264 – Automne 2021.

Inter, art actuel 138
Renoncements et anonymat

https://inter-lelieu.org/revue-inter/proposer-un-article/

Nous voulons comprendre la démarche des artistes qui ont renoncé à l’art. Ont-ils voulu se détacher des institutions dont le monopole économique et les structures spectaclistes surdéterminent les pratiques de création ?

Nous voulons jeter un éclairage sur les artistes récalcitrants, aux productions absentes ou discrètes, qui choisissent les milieux parallèles aux officines officielles, qui aiment à œuvrer dans le quotidien ou encore qui préfèrent l’anonymat. À la façon de Bartleby, le personnage de Melville, ils diraient : « Je préférerais ne pas. » Ces artistes, ils renoncent à se faire une place et un nom dans l’industrie culturelle pour favoriser une visée spirituelle, ou politique, ou strictement personnelle. Ils prennent peut-être aussi conscience qu’ils deviennent les produits d’un milieu qui est certes cool (éduqué, branché, urbain…), mais pas moins étroit. Ils fuient les lancements et boycottent les vernissages pour entamer un exode culturel vers des terrains de pratique sans vernis ni vedettes ou bien pour se libérer d’un milieu culturel qui exige de l’art qu’il soit soumis à l’obligation idéologique d’avoir une utilité sociale et une valeur morale. Alors, ils proposent des œuvres délinquantes et ringardes, anachroniques et intempestives.

Beckett n’avait de cesse de renoncer à l’écriture, Beuys annonçait sa dernière performance, Hsieh renonce à l’art… Le négatif, ce n’est pas l’affrontement, mais la défection ; ce n’est pas la lutte, mais le renoncement. Le renoncement serait une stratégie de lutte, selon Deleuze, contre un système qui maîtrise la totalité des codes. Il n’y aurait que le fiasco qui saurait résister au système hyperpuissant, surdéterminé et complexe qui récupère tous les affrontements. Il n’y aurait que l’anonymat qui rende possible une liberté.

Certains artistes renoncent à l’art pour se convertir à l’activisme. Certains croient pouvoir combiner les deux. D’autres, inversement, abandonnent le militantisme pour s’engager dans une démarche artistique personnelle, avec des préoccupations exclusivement esthétiques. Dans le dossier « Renoncements et anonymat » du numéro 138 de la revue Inter, art actuel, nous cherchons entre autres à comprendre comment ces artistes renoncent à la visibilité et à la reconnaissance, sans toutefois prétendre les sortir de la clandestinité. Nous acceptons les propositions anonymes.

Nous sommes notamment intéressés à savoir comment ils jouent avec l’idée de tout arrêter, le fantasme de renoncer à tout, mais également comment cette manifestation du désir peut les aider à supporter une situation. Parfois arrive un point critique qui mène au passage à l’acte, à une rupture salutaire. Dans ses Syllogismes de l’amertume, Emil Cioran – qui ne s’est pas suicidé – disait : « Sans l’idée du suicide, je me serais tué depuis toujours. » Il avait besoin de ce fantasme : la liberté de renoncer à lui-même.

Il existe aussi des artistes qui ne renoncent pas à l’art, mais dont la vie est marquée par des renoncements importants, lesquels se répercutent dans leur art : la viande, la télévision, la compagnie (conjoints, enfants, animaux…), les bourses, les temps libres, etc.

Il y a enfin les artistes qui renoncent à tout pour leur art et ceux, en revanche, qui renoncent à laisser une trace de leur passage sur terre – sauf dans la revue Inter.

Cosmic Bulletin 2021
Call for papers

www.cosmos.art


The Institute of the Cosmos announces a call for papers for publication in the 2021 edition of the Cosmic Bulletin : an online journal influenced by the philosophy of Russian cosmism and its historical and contemporary manifestations. The Cosmic Bulletin seeks to propagate a series of radical imaginaries informed by a multitude of knowledge systems and sustained by collective experimentation.

The 2021 edition takes as its starting point Aleksander Svyatogor’s anarchist affirmation against localism : “If death (a restriction in time) is the primary root of evil in the life of the individual and society, then its secondary root is caused by a restriction in space, which is to say, the primary position accorded by one’s home, hometown, native land or state, and race. At the end of the day, even internationalism could be construed merely as a limitation in terms of the universe.”

In a 1918 pan-anarchist manifesto, brothers Abba and Wolf Gordin charged five societal institutions with humanity’s oppression : capitalism, the state, colonialism, the family unit, and the school. The remedies for this suffering, as well as for Svyatogor’s conception of internationalism, are inherently cosmist. A politics of interplanetarism would necessitate the abolition of the infrastructures that perpetuate statist violence and carceral logics.

To this end, our inquiries are ever-expanding :

What does total liberation look like beyond the confines of space and time ? How might we transcend socialization that privileges authoritarianism, tribalism, and gender binaries ? Where is the boundary between the safe haven of interplanetarism and the fantasy of escapism ? How might a radical politics of care redefine the science and technology of utopian world-building ? What exactly does emancipation demand ? And to what extent can we apply these urgent intellectual investigations to the present ?

We welcome all scholars, artists, activists, and autodidacts in all fields to contribute original studies, critical essays, theory and fiction pieces, and other cross-genre forms of experimental writing. We look forward to traveling together through spatio-temporal wormholes, loopholes, and rabbit holes.

The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2021.

Please email text as a Microsoft Word document to cosmos [arobas] e-flux [point] com. Cosmic Bulletin 2021 is co-edited by Anton Vidokle and Hallie Ayres.

Call for Proposals

Vol. 27, No. 1 :
‘On Protest’  (Jan/Feb 2022)
 
 
Issue Editors :
Andy Lavender (Guildhall School of Music and Drama)
Julia Peetz (University of Warwick)
 Proposal deadline : 8th March 2021

 

Storming the Capitol. Dismantling Confederate and slave trader statues. Refusing to wear a mask. Booing Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. Sabotaging 5G towers. Buying stamps in an attempt to prop up the United States Postal Service. Defying lèse-majesté laws to criticize Thai royalty. Writing ‘Black Lives Matter’ on roads, so large that the message can be read from Earth orbit. All these actions have been performed as protests in 2020 and 2021, marking this as a year of significant dissent. In the United States alone, the Black Lives Matter actions may be the largest protest movement in the country’s history, eclipsing even the protests of the civil rights era. The US presidential election, meanwhile, was a site for trenchant protests that dramatize the situation of commitment-amid-division that protest typically represents—and that beg wider questions of protest as a contemporary mode of political insistence.

While many of the recent protests around the world mark a resurgence of the popular voice, the language of resistance and opposition has become ubiquitous on the political right as well as for progressives. Right-wing populists paint themselves as perennial outsiders, embattled by and protesting against deep state powers and global cabals. Protestors have weaponized ideals of personal freedom to rage against COVID-19-specific health guidance regarding the wearing of face coverings in public. Social media are increasingly sites of and means of coordinating protest actions ; even so, social media posts framed as protest actions are frequently denounced as merely ‘performative’ forms of protest and allyship. Debates on the correct and most effective manner of performing protest abound, and once-controversial civil rights heroes are invoked as exemplars of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to protest. Protest has mainstreamed, and it has become more volatile. It belongs not to any single faction or persuasion but has become pervasive—even while it is fostered as part of the repertoire of political sway, a system-theatre of power.

This issue calls for critical examinations of contemporary performances of protest across the globe. It is interested in ways that protest can be understood as theatre, but more particularly—in a multimodal, interconnected environment—as a form of public manifestation that draws upon a wide repertoire of representational devices. It seeks to address the relationship between embodied action, affective presence, communication and ideological affiliation. How does protest feel, and who is doing the feeling ? It considers the performativity of protest. It pays particular regard to the extent to which protest achieves change (however this is defined) and the ways in which historical protests help to inform judgements of the conduct, legitimacy and efficacy of current protest actions. What historical instances are invoked to draw comparisons to current forms of activism and resistance ? How do contemporary protests draw on historical repertoires of protest that reflect or extend beyond their specific political contexts ? Do protest strategies and tactics need to evolve as languages of protest become a default mode of mainstream political discourse ? Our concern with the modal nature of protest, we suggest, might also be historicized. What is it about our times, our modes of communication, our political systems, that help to produce protest as a defining feature of contemporary political process ?

We invite contributions in the form of longer essays (up to 7,000 words), shorter provocations (2,000 words) and artist pages. We also welcome suggestions for unique or hybrid formats.

Contributors may wish to draw on the following list of topics as a source of inspiration, although the list is not intended to be exhaustive or restrictive.
Staging/Representation of protest in mainstream media
Contemporary theatres of protest
Violent and non-violent protest
Criteria for the efficacy of protest
The triviality and ubiquity of protest

No. 103 – Dossier Sportification

Date de tombée : 1er avril 2021


Le sport amateur et professionnel a toujours occupé une place importante dans le domaine des arts. Dans tous les pays où le plaisir et la joie de l’activité sportive sont exaltés, que ce soit sur une patinoire ou un terrain de basketball, de soccer ou de cricket, des artistes comme des commissaires s’appuient sur les aspects matériels, thématiques et structuraux des sports individuels et des sports d’équipe pour créer et penser. À travers le prisme ludique et compétitif d’un maillot d’équipe, d’un ballon, d’une raquette, d’une piscine ou d’un terrain d’athlétisme, bon nombre d’artistes aujourd’hui cherchent à éclairer les points où se croisent les éléments esthétiques et sociopolitiques du sport, de sa pratique, de ses fanclubs, de son déploiement architectural et de sa culture en général.

Depuis longtemps, à titre d’ardents supporters, d’observateurs et observatrices ou participantes et participants, des peintres et des photographes choisissent de renvoyer une image déformée de scènes sportives familières ; des artistes de la sculpture et du textile métamorphosent des parties de l’équipement emblématique par des assemblages inusités ; d’autres remettent en question les codes du jeu et les attitudes typiques dans des performances ; et des artistes de la vidéo retournent l’objectif vers le spectacle en tant que tel, les médias de masse et le public. L’hypervisibilité du sport dans les arts témoigne de sa nature politique inhérente, de la séduction cinétique des corps en mouvement, de la chorégraphie sous-jacente au jeu, de la conception visuelle de la partisanerie, de l’envoutement de la victoire et de l’effet cathartique de la défaite.

[…] Les relations entre le sport et l’art contemporain sont multiples et variées. C’est dans cette optique que Esse arts + opinions invite les autrices et auteurs à fouiller de manière extensive la question du sport en tant que phénomène esthétique, politique, culturel et social étroitement lié aux arts visuels et aux arts de la performance. Qu’est-ce qui séduit dans le sport, quand on le considère comme un évènement frappant sur les plans visuel, dynamique et affectif ? Comment s’y prennent les artistes pour saisir les enjeux et les connotations sociopolitiques du sport et montrer les dessous de ce qu’on présente souvent comme un univers apolitique ? En quoi le culte de l’athlète est-il semblable (ou pas) à celui de l’artiste comme visionnaire héroïque ? Quels tropes, quels codes et quels vocabulaires de la culture sportive sont employés par les artistes, et à quelles fins ?
