SOHO20 Chelsea (NY), Call for Entries: 2014 Annual Juried Exhibition, “Under Construction”

soho20logo

SOHO20 Chelsea (NY), Call for Entries: 2014 Annual Juried Exhibition, “Under Construction”

Deadline: May 23rd, 2014 Midnight EST

Eligibility: The open call is open to artists, both men and women, working in all disciplines, including but not limited to: painting, sculpture, photography, multimedia, architecture, fashion, textile and graphic design.

Open Call for Entries:  SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery is a non-profit artist-run gallery that has been promoting the work of women artists through gallery exhibition and public programming since 1973.

In a recent review of unfinished European paintings in the Met’s collection, Roberta Smith expresses how such works “… can bring us closer to understanding the mysterious process of painting, and indeed, to painting’s future.” SOHO20 Gallery invites artists practicing in any medium, from painting and sculpture to architecture and design, to submit entries inspired by the idea of a work “Under Construction.” The precision of a line or the articulation of a figure in a finished work often first begins as a stream of consciousness, a circling of squares, and a squelching of the internal editor. Rather than a sleek surface, work that illustrates process, or is in a state of in-progress, can be more revealing. What do the words ‘finished’ and ‘unfinished’ mean? Can a work of art be under constructed?

SOHO20 will provide promotional marketing support, including post card invitations, and will feature the presenting artists on the gallery website. The gallery will organize an opening reception, to take place on Thursday July 24th, which is free and open to the public. Artists are responsible for delivery of artwork to and from the gallery within a designated time frame.

Juror: Sharon Matt Atkins, Managing Curator of Exhibitions, Brooklyn Museum

Entry fee. A commission of 40% will be charged on all work sold through the exhibition. Work need not be for sale.

Call for Applicants: The MacArthur Foundation Documentary Film, Open Call

MacFound 2014 Doc Front Page Image_FINALCall for Applicants: The MacArthur Foundation Documentary Film, Open Call

Deadline: May 1st, 2014

The MacArthur Foundation funds the production of documentary films and participatory new media projects that combine exceptional storytelling with in-depth journalism. We look for projects that challenge preconceptions and examine underreported social issues. These documentaries are intended to reach a large U.S. broadcast audience and, often, a targeted audience of educators, community leaders, advocates, and policymakers. We look for projects that have the potential to spark dialogue, create understanding, and contribute to social and policy change. MacArthur-supported documentaries:

•    Address important, contemporary social issues – international and domestic – illustrating the human impacts of public policy.
•    Follow an issue over time, providing in-depth reporting that goes beyond conventional news coverage.
•    Utilize compelling personal stories to engage viewers and create empathy.
•    Appeal to a broad audience because they treat differing points of view with respect.
•    Are factually accurate and follow best practices in documentary ethics.
•    Are led by experienced filmmaking teams that have had past success in bringing a documentary project to completion and reaching broad U.S. audiences. (And are being produced by a company or organization that is incorporated in a U.S. state.)
•    Are in production or post-production phase (on a very limited basis, we may consider projects in the research & development phase)

Request for Qualifications: NoMa Underpass, Washington, D.C., Design Competition

underpass-header1Request for Qualifications:  NoMa Underpass, Washington, D.C., Design Competition

Deadline: May 9th, 2014

Mission/Intent: The NoMa Parks Foundation seeks an artist, artist team, designer or architect to create designs for four railroad underpasses in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C. We encourage all local, nationally, and internationally qualified artists, artist teams, designers, landscape architects and architects to apply. This design project will beautify, enliven and activate these public underpass areas. The selected designs create a network of transformed underpasses that will attract visitors and provide an engaging and positive sensory experience for all who pass through them. The final projects which will become part of the parks system will provide greater visibility of the area for those living outside of NoMa.

About NoMa: NoMa, (North of Massachusetts Avenue), is a rapidly growing mixed-use neighborhood located just north of Union Station in the heart of Washington, D.C. The area is four blocks from the U.S. Capitol and well-served by transit, including commuter rail, Metrorail, Amtrak and a variety of bus lines. The neighborhood has grown rapidly since a second Metro station was built in 2004, and has been transformed from a primarily industrial area to a high energy and diverse neighborhood where thousands work, live and visit.

Site(s):  The neighborhood is bisected by elevated railroad tracks emanating from Union Station serving Amtrak, CSX, Metrorail and regional rail (MARC/VRE). The underpass locations provide critical pedestrian and vehicular passageways that connect First Street, NE to residents and businesses on the East side of the rail lines. The underpass locations are:
A. Florida Avenue, NE between Second and Third Street, NE
B. M Street, NE between First and Second Street, NE
C. L Street, NE between First and Second Street, NE
D. K Street, NE between First and Second Street, NE

Project Budget:  The total budget for this project is 1.75 million dollars for four (4) underpass locations. The budget is inclusive of all artist/architect/designer fees, and all of their associated expenses for design, fabrication, shipping, engineering, insurance, site preparation and installation costs. Individual budgets for each location have not yet been determined.
Qualifications are due May 9th, 2014 and will be followed by a formal RFP issued to qualified entrants.
