Gutfreund Cornett Art & Phoenix Gallery (NY), Call for Entries, What’s Right, What’s Left: Democracy in America

Deadline: September 18th, 2015, 11:59pm in your time zone

From their call:  In the upcoming election year, what does democracy mean in the United States? It’s time for artists to get on their soapboxes – whether it is a conceptual soapbox (Warhol) or direct Statement Art (Jenny Holtzer) and tell us what you think about democracy in America.

What is happening within our borders with the increasing polarization of our political parties and how do our views of democracy affect those outside our borders when we try to spread the American Dream? Have we made progress or are we going backwards? Whether you lean to the right or lean to the left, tell us what you think about the current state of affairs.

How does increasing surveillance affect the tenets of democracy? We have both freedom and a lack of privacy in this digital and Patriot’s Act world as drones and wiretaps are commonplace and virtually unquestioned and unopposed; but do we have a voice in any of this Big Brother culture and with voting restriction laws being passed across the country to silence particular demographics of the American public.

How does the media portray democracy — truth vs. spin? What is actually news versus entertainment in bombastic, biased editorials? Consider democracy in relation to civil, personal and political rights, economic gain, and the debate over freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom to choose to live as you wish.

What did our forefathers intend in the Constitution with the freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, the pursuit of happiness, etc. To whom do these tenets apply in a racially, religious and politically divided country?

GCA is asking artists to share their voices in this art-based conversation about democracy and seeks art that address and interprets  these broadly.

Eligibility: Open to all.

Juror: Dr. Kathy Battista, Founder and Director of the MA Contemporary Art program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York and Senior Research Fellow of the Centre for Global Futures in Art, Design and Media at the Winchester School of Art University of Southampton.

New Media Caucus, International Call for Art, Intersections: Cinema, Performance, Networked Media, and Politics

9024068_300x300New Media Caucus, International Call for Art, Intersections: Cinema, Performance, Networked Media, and Politics

Deadline: August 31st, 2015

From their call: The New Media Caucus is programming a session for the ARTspace Media Lounge entitled Intersections: Cinema, Performance, Networked Media, and Politics, under the theme of VISIBLE/INVISIBLE at CAA 2016 in Washington, DC. No entry fee.

Theme: This year’s theme, VISIBLE/INVISIBLE explores the legacy of identity and representation politics, considered in the context of our present culture where individuals, organizations and ideas can be easily captured, tracked, exposed, appropriated from the circulation of digital material which simultaneously feeds capitalist media assembly lines and alternative economies. Through Media Lounge programming we aim to foster a dialog centered on emerging artistic sensibilities that mix art and a politics of representation amid a transforming sociopolitical landscape.

Session: This two hour session will include 6-8 artists presenting work to help build a multi-threaded conversation that encourages interaction between the presenters and attendees. No written papers will be read. We expect the participants to briefly show/present the work and ideas related to the theme and to participate in the ensuing discussions.

This panel will consider the impact that networked media, interactivity, and digital culture have had on cinema and performance. In particular, recent historical examples demonstrate that new uses of technology facilitate political communication, organization, resistance, protest, overthrow, etc. We seek new media artists, performers, filmmakers and documentarians to present work that engages, explores or responds to this context.

All media will be considered, but we are particularly interested in new media works that engage performative and cinematic conventions in new ways. Works must be able to be presented digitally or performed at CAA 2016 in Washington DC. Preference given to the following forms: new media, digital art, queer art, feminist art, activist based art, performance art and digital nonfiction.

Project Anywhere, International Call for Proposals for 2016: A Global Peer Reviewed Space for Art at the Outermost Limits of Location Specificity

Project Anywhere, International Call for Proposals for 2016: A Global Peer Reviewed Space for Art at the Outermost Limits of Location Specificity

Deadline: September 1st, 2015

From their website:  Project Anywhere is an expanded global exhibition model in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. Emphasizing art and research undertaken outside traditional circuits, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the evaluation and dissemination of art and research at the outermost limits of location-specificity.

Project Anywhere endorses a rigorous two-stage peer review process. First, double blind evaluations of all project proposals by artist academics of international standing determines which projects will be hosted each year. A second open peer review process of project “outcomes” determines which projects are archived as “validated research” (all other hosted projects are placed in a general archive at the cessation of the hosting period).

Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists and researchers working anywhere in the world. With only a handful of projects hosted each year, selection is very competitive. Please note that Project Anywhere does not provide funding nor expect exclusivity. Instead, Project Anywhere is designed to suit artist academics seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for their research. Project Anywhere also welcomes collaborative and curatorial projects or projects already hosted by other institutions seeking peer-validation.

Project Anywhere encourages individual and collaborative projects (and is also open to partnerships with other institutions at a project level). We are currently looking for participation from artists, institutions, and academics with a view to building a robust international network of projects and blind peer reviewers. Please note that our full blind peer review system will be in place from 2013. Proposals for our 2013 program will be accepted anytime during 2012.

Website link: http://projectanywhere.net/

Proposal Guidelines: http://www.projectanywhere.net/proposals/

Evaluation Criteria: http://www.projectanywhere.net/peer-review/
