Texas Tech University, National Call For Entries: Beyond Printmaking 5

Texas Tech University, National Call For Entries: Beyond Printmaking 5

Deadline: November 30th, 2016 

Beyond Printmaking 5 is a national art competition and exhibition organized by the Landmark Arts Gallery and the Printmaking area at the Texas Tech School of Art in conjunction with BP5 Symposium spring 2017. Many contemporary artists who originally started with printmaking as their primary medium find ways to create visually captivating and socially or politically engaging discourses through interdisciplinary printmaking approaches.

Beyond Printmaking 5 is a hybrid exhibition. While most of the works will be selected from the submissions received, the curator will have an opportunity to “fill in the gaps” with curated works, works of her own choosing from invited artists. This practice, first begun with Beyond Printmaking 4, helps assure that the exhibition more fully explore and present the expanded field of printmaking.

Eligibility: Open to professional artists living in the U.S. who are 18 and older. All media expanding the notion of printmaking, including time-based and installation, will be considered. An artist’s statement illuminating the artist’s conception of printmaking must be included with the entry. Work must be original and completed within the last 2 years.

Juror: Patricia Villalobos Echeverría, Western Michigan University. $2500 in cash prizes to be awarded by the Juror.

Entry fee: $40 for up to three entries, $5 each for up to two additional entries submitted for a total of 5 entries.

Exhibition dates:  March 25th–April 23rd, 2017.

Visual AIDS (NY), Call for Applicants: Proposals for Curator for Art & AIDS Exhibition

VisAIDSVisual AIDS (NY), Call for Applicants: Proposals for Curator for Art & AIDS Exhibition

Deadline: August 1st, 2016

Visual AIDS invites curators to submit a proposal for our annual one-month exhibition, to take place in Summer/Fall 2017. Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over.

Visual AIDS is looking for proposals that use art to examine the relationship between HIV and contemporary culture, contemplate the deep cultural history of AIDS, art and activism, or highlight the work of artists living with HIV. Previous exhibitions have challenged notions such as love as activism, believing in the unknown, measuring the undetectable, using text as image to contemplate mixed messages, and the intersection of nightlife and HIV/AIDS activism. Proposals should focus on contemporary issues with an eye towards both ideas of the past and possible futures. Curators are strongly encouraged to consider the work of artists in Visual AIDS’ online Artist+ Registry.

Visual AIDS will provide an exhibition venue in a non-profit gallery space in NYC, honorarium and administrative support, along with access to Visual AIDS artist members, and information about HIV/AIDS and related contemporary issues. Curators need not be based in New York, however they will need to be easily accessible. Organizing, planning and installation are expected to be “hands-on.”

Proposals should be a 1-2 page description of the exhibition that includes a list of possible artists; a working timeline for the exhibition to open Summer/Fall 2017; general budget considerations for shipping and/or art production; and a C.V.

Successful proposals will illustrate an eye for detail, and an ability to communicate and understand workload management. Curators are expected to be involved in all aspects of exhibition planning, including contacting artists, organizing artwork shipment, installing and deinstalling exhibition, etc. Previous experience curating exhibitions is a plus but not mandatory. A successful proposal will engage contemporary artists and art in innovative ways, while ensuring underrepresented issues and communities are represented. Ideas for related programming are welcomed but not mandatory.

Writers, artists, community leaders and other cultural workers who can demonstrate an ability to curate an exhibition are welcome to apply. We are open to accepting applications from individuals as well as teams and pairs.

International Call for Entries: MONO NO AWARE X (NY) – Exhibition opportunity for sculptors, filmmakers and performance artists

mononoawarexInternational Call for Entries: MONO NO AWARE X (NY) – Exhibition opportunity for sculptors, filmmakers and performance artists

Deadline: September 16th, 2016  

The international call for entries is now open for MONO NO AWARE X. They are accepting submissions by artists and filmmakers who incorporate S8mm, 16mm, 35mm film and altered light projections as part of a sculpture, performance, installation, or expanded cinema presentation. In 2015, the ninth annual MONO NO AWARE exhibition was mentioned in the New York Times and presented the work of 33 international artists to an audience of 900.

The exhibition will take place on December 2nd and 3rd, 2016. Submission is sliding scale by donation $0-$20 (suggested) which allows MONO NO AWARE to provide travel stipends and lodging to presenting artists. The 2-day event is free to attend for audience members.

For more detailed information and link to entry: http://mononoawarefilm.com/entries/

About: MONO NO AWARE, the exhibition, creates an ephemeral environment for work that is counter to excess and accessibility. To emphasize this distinction, we exhibit work that is one part celluloid film or live altered light projection. There is magic in seeing a film print projected, a presence a poet has when reading their own work, a feeling that resonates in your chest when seeing music performed live. For these reasons we encourage live projections with live additional audio, visual and performance elements. We engage with and support artists who create experience through film. MONO NO AWARE has visited and presented special programs at arts organizations and universities, including New York University, Yale University, Fordham University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Tribeca Film Festival, the New Orleans Film Festival, and the Aurora Picture Show.

The program seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge or artistic creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a period ranging between six and twelve months. Since the purpose of the program is to help provide fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary.

Support is only available to individuals. Fellowships are not available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the development of websites or blogs.

The foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

Grant amounts vary, and the foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project.

Call for Applicants, Santa Clara County (CA) Artists: Leigh Weimers Emerging Artists Awards

Call for Applicants, Santa Clara County (CA) Artists: Leigh Weimers Emerging Artists Awards

Deadline: June 30th, 2016

The Leigh Weimers Emerging Artists Awards give unrestricted cash grants to local (Santa Clara County only, California) artists who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits, but who have not enjoyed the recognition and rewards of being more widely known.

In memory and honor of Leigh Weimers—the longtime Mercury News columnist, supporter of the arts and a Rotarian—the Rotary Club of San Jose has established the Emerging Artists Awards, presented to outstanding artists residing in Santa Clara County in the visual arts, performing arts, written word and music who have yet to be widely recognized for their talent, vision and artistic accomplishments.

These awards, first given in July, 2013, recognized three women with individual $1000 cash prizes. The winners then present their art to the Rotary Club of San Jose, one of the world’s largest Rotaries, at one of its regular Wednesday luncheon meetings.

There is a minimum $1,000 cash prize, although recent awards have ranged from $3000 to $5000, depending upon fundraising success.

Sweetwater Center for the Arts (PA), National* Call for Artists: ReMIX: The Art of Reuse

Sweetwater Center for the Arts (PA), National* Call for Artists: ReMIX: The Art of Reuse

Deadline: July 16th, 2016

Art works that are made from more than 50% reused materials.

In today’s culture of abundance we are plagued with left overs and waste. As a society we create more garbage than any generation before us. And the question nags, what shall we do with all that stuff? ReMIX is an exhibition of art made from all that stuff, highlighting artists who create new works from items and materials that had a previous function. Their act of upcycling re-purposed materials is a kind of contemporary alchemy, transforming the seemingly worthless into objects worthy of our gaze. Entry fee.

*Open to artists who reside in the continental United States.

ReMIX is juried by Ron Copeland. Ron Copeland is a Pittsburgh based artist originally from Canton, Ohio.

Exhibition Dates: August 20th – September 16th, 2016

For more detailed information and link to apply: http://www.sweetwaterartcenter.org/call-for-artists/

About: Sweetwater Center for Arts is located in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. Sweetwater began as a grass-roots effort developed by community residents.  It offered a small number of classes in the fine arts and crafts for residents in the area west of Pittsburgh.  After receiving nonprofit and certified teaching institute status in 1974, Sweetwater began operating as a full-service arts education facility in 1975, when Sweetwater opened its doors.  In 1987, Sweetwater moved from a small Victorian house into its current space, located in the old Sewickley Post Office building, where it is uniquely situated on the periphery of Pittsburgh with easy access to many areas that do not traditionally have access to quality cultural programs.
