American Friends Service Committee, Call for Poster Art, All of Us or None: Responses and Resistance to Militarism

 American Friends Service Committee, Call for Poster Art, All of Us or None: Responses and Resistance to Militarism

Deadline: December 15th, 2014

From their call: From Ferguson to Gaza, we can see the way that militarism has a direct impact on the lives of all of us.

Militarism refers to physically violent and coercive ways of settling conflict or maintaining control what we see in the everyday actions of armed security forces such as the military, militia, police, border enforcement, and school security.

But do militarist policy decisions actually keep our communities safe and secure? What if we instead invested in the things that help communities, countries, and the globe thrive?

Help us change the way people think about safety and security—and about the tools that should be used to achieve them.

We need graphic artists, printmakers, street artists, comic artists, and other print-based visual artists who are interested in creating unique posters for a traveling exhibit. 

Submissions should explore:

  • Militarism’s negative effects on your community, your country, or the globe
  • Ideas for active resistance to militarism
  • Alternative approaches, new projects, or manifestos that seek to achieve lasting peace and justice

Pro Arts (CA), Call for SF Bay Area Artists: The Annual 2015

TA2015_CFE_Banner_v2Pro Arts (CA), Call for San Francisco Bay Area* Artists: The Annual 2015

Deadline: October 10th, 2014, midnight PST

*Artists must reside in the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Benito, San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano and Sonoma

The Juried Annual presents a survey of Bay Area art at the creative edge. All submissions are reviewed online using a ‘blind’ jury system.

Cesar Garcia (Founding Director and Chief Curator, The Mistake Room, Los Angeles) and Naima J. Keith (Assistant Curator, The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York) invite artists to consider the following prompt when submitting for The Annual: “The page that was blank to begin with is now crossed from top to bottom with tiny black characters–letters, words, commas, exclamation marks–and it’s because of them the page is said to be legible. But a kind of uneasiness, a feeling close to nausea, an irresolution that stays my hand–these make me wonder: do these black marks add up to reality? The white of the paper is an artifice that’s replaced the translucency of parchment and the ochre surface of clay tablets; but the ochre and the translucency and the whiteness may possess more reality than the signs that mar them.”  – Jean Genet, Prisoner of Love

Eligibility: Participation is open to artists who reside/work within the eleven counties Greater Bay Area, defined as the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Benito, San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano and Sonoma. Current membership to Pro Arts (through end of exhibition) is required for entry. Membership is open to all. Artists can join/renew membership at time of online registration.

Eligibility: Proposals are welcomed from artists at various stages in their careers. Active membership in NCECA is a requirement for the person submitting the exhibition proposal whether as an exhibition organizer whose work is included in the exhibition or as a curator whose work is not included in the exhibition.

American Academy in Rome (IT), Call for Applicants: 2015 Rome Prize Fellowship

2x4_aar_rome_prize_webAmerican Academy in Rome (IT), Call for Applicants: 2015 Rome Prize Fellowship

Deadline: November 1st, 2014 

The American Academy in Rome supports innovative artists, writers, scholars living and working together in a dynamic international community. The American Academy in Rome online application form for the 2015 Rome Prize competition is currently available.

The American Academy in Rome awards the Rome Prize to a select group of artists and scholars, after an application process that begins in the fall of each year. The winners, announced in the spring, are invited to Rome to pursue their work in an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic freedom, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovation.

The encounter with Rome represents now, as it has done since the Academy’s inception, something unique: a chance for American artists and scholars to spend significant time interacting and working in one of the oldest, most cosmopolitan cities in the world. The richness of Rome’s artistic and cultural legacy and its power to stimulate creative thinking served as the initial impetus for the Academy’s founding.

The American Academy in Rome is the oldest American overseas center for independent study and advanced research in the arts and the humanities.

The Rome Prize is awarded annually to about thirty candidates, each selected by a jury of distinguished peers through a national competition.

The winners are invited to Rome to pursue their work for periods ranging from six months to two years. They are provided with stipends, residential accommodation, meals, private studies or studios.

Please visit the Academy website for more pertinent information about the Academy, the fellowship, application rules, guidelines, deadlines, and fees. Website link: http://www.aarome.org/

SOMArts (CA), Call to Artists, Gathering the Embers: The Spirit of Home

SOMArts (CA), Call to Artists, Gathering the Embers: The Spirit of Home

Deadline: September 10th, 2014

Curators Amanda and Natalia Vigil are soliciting applications from emerging and established artists interested in producing work for Gathering the Embers: The Spirit of Home on October 24, 2014, 7–9:30pm at SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St. (between 8th & 9th) in San Francisco.

Now in its fourth year, Gathering the Embers brings the spirit of Día de los Muertos to the stage and is part of SOMArts’ annual Day of the Dead exhibition and accompanying public programming. Gathering the Embers is an opportunity for artists to openly pay tribute to love, life, loss and resiliency.

In connection with this year’s Day of the Dead exhibition theme, artists are encouraged to create tribute pieces centering around “The Spirit of Home”, be it by honoring an individual, by exploring the meaning of home or the spirit of place, or by evoking the complexities of the loss of culture and people being felt in the Bay Area now, and the cycles of life and death.

Amanda and Natalia grew up in San Francisco as part of a vibrant Chicano arts community and learned after their father’s passing that mourning crosses many boundaries. It is with this understanding that they are honored to curate this intentionally multi-racial/cultural event. For them, Gathering the Embers is a family project, a way to engage their San Francisco community, and to celebrate their Mexican hertitage.

Young people, people of color, and emerging artists are encouraged to apply. Literary artists, dancers, choreographers, media artists, filmmakers, vocalists, spoken word artists, storytellers, musicians, are encouraged to apply. Individual or ensemble performances will be considered. If you don’t have a fully-evolved idea, please fill out the application best you can.

Artist participation requires:
– Performance Photo and Biography with application (300dpi jpg or pdf)
– An individual artist meeting with curators
– Mandatory dress rehearsal on Thursday, October, 23 2014
– Gathering the Embers show, Friday, October 24 2014

Click here to submit an application no later than Wednesday, September 10th, 2014.

2x2Solos_BannerWEB_part2Pro Arts (CA), Call for Curators: 2 x 2 Solos

Deadline: September 15th, 2014

Pro Arts is now accepting applications from curators for 2 x 2 Solos, an exhibition series commissioning new work from four accomplished emerging artists based in the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area.

2 x 2 Solos serves as a significant platform for the production of, and engagement with, art in Oakland. Supported, in part, by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and East Bay Community Foundation, the program establishes important professional opportunities, networks and critical visibility for emerging artists, while supporting artists who assume risk and pose challenges through their work. Participation in the program is based on nomination by the top art professionals in the region. From over 100 nominations, four artists are selected based on reviews by a curatorial panel and studio visits with independent curators.

Four curators will be selected for the project. Curators will, in collaboration with Pro Arts independent curatorial committee, finalize artist selections based on studio visits held in late October 2014. Selected curators will then produce a solo exhibition in Pro Arts’ downtown Oakland gallery space. This includes overseeing the production of new work, coordinating installation and layout of work, writing a curatorial statement, and finding a regional arts writer to produce an essay for the exhibition catalogue.

Final exhibitions will take place at Pro Arts in August – October, 2015. An $500 honorarium is provided.

Williamsburg Art & Historical Center (NY), Call for Undergraduate or Graduate Students in the Arts, The New Academy: WAH Bridges Student Artists

Williamsburg Art & Historical Center (NY), Call for Undergraduate or Graduate Students in the Arts, The New Academy: Williamsburg Art & Historical Center (WAH) Bridges Student Artists

Deadline: September 22nd, 2014

Eligibility: Artists enrolled in Undergraduate and Masters degree programs in the Arts

The word “academy” often elicits an antiquated institution: rigidly conservative and ossified in tradition, concerned with distinguishing the “fine arts” from “craft” or “trade.” While this notion may have been true for hundreds of years in the history of art, this exhibition seeks to revisit our perception of the academy. Here, the academy is understood as an institution that emphasizes creative and intellectual freedom. Through mentorship, critique, and theoretical debate, the New Academy fosters the individual and professional growth of artists. Thus the academy becomes a fluid concept, which engenders the idea of a heterogeneous and evolutionary “academic style” that varies depending on time, place, institution, teacher, and student.

The WAH Center presents “The New Academy: WAH Bridges Student Artists” – a multi-media group exhibition dedicated to presenting the work of students pursuing their undergraduate or Masters degrees in the arts. Based on the Bridge Concept envisioned by WAH Center Founder & Artistic Director, Yuko Nii, the aim is to create a bridge between the WAH Center’s historical landmark building and a new generation of outstanding young artists, as well as a bridge between academic styles, understood in this context as a temporal artistic style that describes the work of a student. Artists are encouraged to submit artworks in the medium of their choosing.
