Kala Art Institute (CA), Call for Proposals & Event Submissions: Days of Action

Kala Art Institute (CA), Call for Proposals & Event Submissions: Days of Action

Deadline: January 28th, 2017

Kala’s Days of Action is a counter narrative to Trump’s one hundred day plan. This is a call to artists, performance artists, thinkers and writers to propose gestures that can be carried out using Kala’s gallery, community space or large project space with the support of the Kala staff and interns. Whereas the president elect’s 100 Days will seek to dismantle restrictions that protect our environment, public education, health, and jeopardize unprotected minority groups, Kala’s Days of Action is a forum for resistance, an artistic coming together, an exercise in endurance, a call to all bodies that stand against bigotry, xenophobia, racism, sexism, and the destruction of our environment to act together.

We seek action proposals and event submissions for readings, panels, screenings, workshops, and happenings that will occur concurrent with Kala’s Print Public exhibition, January 19th – March 25th, 2017.

About Kala: Founded in 1974, by Archana Horsting and Yuzo Nakano, as an international residency program rooted in the local community and a forum for ideas, Kala Art Institute encourages artistic experimentation. We are proud of Kala’s progress over four decades from a garage studio with one etching press and a single hot plate to a 15,200 sq. ft. facility in the historic West Berkeley Heinz building. Kala has grown steadily in the breath of its offerings and in the size of its operation, yet remains true to its mission to be a workshop of ideas and to engage the community through exhibitions, education, and public programs.

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: Body/Image

Deadline: March 22nd, 2017 11:59pm EST

From their call:  In the earliest days of experiments in photographic methodology the various emulsions available were too slow to permit the portrayal of the human form, and even more advanced processes like daguerreotype and tintype required lengthy motionless sitting times by the subject. Nevertheless, the human figure has been mainstay of the photographer since almost the inception of the medium. Figure photography imitating the style and subjects of classical painting constituted some of the fine art photography of the time. As technology advanced, photographers began to create their own figure photography sub-genres, ranging from the crass to the sublime.Fine art figure photography is now routinely taught in art curriculum.

For this exhibition we’re looking for examples of accomplished photography that present the human body as subject. The nude in nature, in the studio, and in more candid situations are all appropriate. And nudity is not necessary; any photo that depicts the body as an artful form to be celebrated is appropriate. Juror’s Choice receives a 30×48″ vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image, free entry into a future exhibition, a free exhibition catalog; Honorable Mentions receive free exhibition catalogs and free entry in a future exhibition. People’s Choice gains free entry into a future exhibit.

Juror: Gary Samson is an award-winning photographer and photographic educator.

 Entry fee.

At the core of this research is an open-source archive maintained by the Asociación de Arte Útil.

Submission Criteria: The public is invited to submit information on historical as well as ongoing projects, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, that align with the following criteria:

1) Propose new uses for art within society
2) Use artistic thinking to challenge the field within which it operates
3) Respond to current urgencies
4) Operate on a 1:1 scale
5) Replace authors with initiators and spectators with users
6) Have practical, beneficial outcomes for its users
7) Pursue sustainability
8) Re-establish aesthetics as a system of transformation

Selected Projects: The selected projects will be included in the archive, in the Asociación de Arte Útil network. They will also be included in a new pedagogical artwork Escuela de Arte Útil (School of Arte Útil), part of the exhibition Tania Bruguera: Talking to Power, organized by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) in San Francisco.

Submission Instructions: Projects can be submitted by anyone, included but not limited to the initiators of the project. They will be evaluated for pertinence by the Asociación de Arte Útil.

Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Emergency Grants: 
Created in 1993, Emergency Grants provides speedy funding for visual and performing artists who have unanticipated, sudden opportunities to present their work to the public, or who incur unexpected or unbudgeted expenses for projects close to completion with committed exhibition or performance dates.  The grants are intended to support the creation of innovative and experimental work, and are meant to assist individuals and groups when there is insufficient time to seek other sources of funding. Requests are primarily granted to artists who are “emerging” and have few sources of financial support.  Emergency Grants is the only active, multi-disciplinary program that offers immediate assistance of this kind to artists working anywhere in the United States. Emergency Grants applications are accepted year round; there is no deadline.  http://www.foundationforcontemporaryarts.org/grant_programs/immediate_needs.html

Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Foundation Emergency Grants
: The Emergency Assistance Program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified artists whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. The program does not consider requests for dental work, chronic situations, capital improvements, or projects of any kind; nor can it consider situations resulting from general indebtedness or lack of employment. The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical. http://www.gottliebfoundation.org/emergency-grant/

Artist Fellowship Inc, Financial Assistance
:  The Artists’ Fellowship aids professional fine artists in time of emergency. It cannot aid every artist who applies, nor does it award scholarship funds or “fellowships” for study, projects, art supplies, schooling, travel, or exhibitions.  Applications from performance artists, commercial artists, commercial photographers, filmmakers, crafts persons, and hobbyists are not accepted. Although the need is real and often urgent, Artists’ Fellowship, Inc. is not authorized to respond to such requests.  http://www.artistsfellowship.com/financial.html

The Women Arts Organization has a great list of emergency funding organizations for artists, musicians, writers, and regional areas.  http://www.womenarts.org/funding-resources/emergencyfunds/

Call for Emerging Artists in California: Mark M. Glickman & Lanette M. McClure Artist Award

Deadline: February 5th, 2017, 5:00pm PST

From their call: Visual artists are an integral part of our cultural landscape, and provide an important source of creative capital for the Sacramento region.  In this regard, donors Mark M. Glickman and Lanette M. McClure have under-written an award to directly support the creation of new work and study by emerging artists in California. Artists can work in any of the following media, including ceramics, painting, sculpture in any medium, glass, printmaking, fiber, drawing, mixed media, installation, photography or video.

The qualifications for this award are that the artist’s submitted work is of high caliber, original, and completed within the past five years. Preference will be given to artists who are under-recognized or ‘emerging’ in the art field, thus while they may have exhibiting experience, their exhibit history will not be extensive in terms of length of time or number of exhibits. Artists must be dedicated to the practice of making and exhibiting art and have a need for financial support. The award is limited to artists residing in California, and will be determined by a panel of experts and donors.

The selected artist will receive an award of $2,500 and the offering of a solo exhibit, in the Pence’s Dowling Community Gallery. Awardees will be expected to create new work for the Pence exhibit, and to lead a workshop or talk based on their work.

To apply, send 10-15 digital images (or video) of current work (must have been completed within the past five years) and an image list with title, date, medium, and dimensions. Images should be at least 300 dpi, with jpg format preferred. Please also include an artist’s resume or CV, and artist statement (no longer than 600 words). Please label each image with your last name and the title of the piece.  The application fee is $25.
