Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (NY), International/National Open Call for Entries, Science Inspires Art: Biodiversity/Extinction

ScienceInspiresArtLogo130Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (NY), International/National Open Call for Entries, Science Inspires Art: Biodiversity/Extinction

Deadline: August 23rd, 2015

The 17th Annual Art-Sci Juried Exhibition will be held at the New York Hall of Science

From their call: Today we are learning the importance of the conservation of Earth’s biodiversity for more than its innate beauty, capacity to inspire art, and to lift our spirits. It is acknowledged by scientists and even governments around the world, as the key indicator of the health of our planet’s ecosystems. And, a rich biodiversity underpins ecosystem “services” (such as recycling of nutrients, purifying water, removing carbon dioxide and adding oxygen to our atmosphere, and sustaining habitat for animals and organisms like trees, and seeds that produce food), all essential for human sustainability on our beautiful planet.

This exhibition will demonstrate the wide diversity of visual tropes that today’s artists are employing to reflect upon the crisis of biodiversity loss and species extinction. We are seeking 2D images of original art executed in any media.

Jurors: Elizabeth Corr, the Manager of Art Partnerships at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and Dr. Paula J. Ehrlich, the President & CEO of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation.

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

5872734_orig
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.

Call for Proposals: 4th Ghetto Biennale 2015, Haiti

ghettoCall for Proposals: 4th Ghetto Biennale 2015, Haiti

Deadline for proposal applications: July 5th, 2015, midnight BST

From their call: The 4th Ghetto Biennale 2015 will take place from the end of November until the middle of December 2015, the exact dates to be confirmed. All works must be made and exhibited in Haiti. Artists and curators will be invited to pass, no less than one, to three weeks in Haiti before presenting their work in the neighbourhood to an audience of local people, Port au Prince neighbourhood communities, arts collectives and arts organisations.

The deadline for proposal applications is midnight Sunday 5th July BST and our decisions will be made and announced by the end of the third week in July. Applicants for the 4th Ghetto Biennale 2015 must provide a written synopsis of their project proposal covering conceptual background, methodology, and a production and exhibition strategy for the proposed new work on no more than two sides of A4 including illustrations, and a one page CV, all formatted as pdfs. We will not accept any proposal longer than two sides, no attached images and neither will we accept website links as a proposal component.

Please keep in mind that we are looking for works that will be created during the three week period in Port au Prince, Haiti. We are not looking for work that is already created. We welcome projects that may require collaboration with local artists and would be able to help connect artists beforehand.

There is no funding for this event and you will be expected to cover the cost of your flight, accommodation and materials. We will supply a reading list, there is a film about the Grand Rue sculptors on-line and we will be more than happy to help (via email) with any research and information needed, both before your application and leading up to the event. Advice can also be given about the practicalities for the production of specific projects and budgeting for the trip. If your work involves intensive interviews we will advise you to budget for your own translator. Artists should be aware that Haiti has only a 50% literacy rate and text heavy projects could be problematic for the local audience. We can help organise all hotel bookings, airport pick-ups and internal transport.

The Ghetto Biennale remains a lens-free event for none-Haitian artists so no video and photography projects will be considered, but there will be a photographer on site to document the projects at the end of the event for anyone needing images for documentation.

Eyebeam (NY), International Call for Project Residencies, Fall/Winter 2015

Deadline: June 26th, 2015, 12pm noon EST

Eyebeam will provide up to 10 residencies this cycle. In Eyebeam’s new Creative Studios in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, the organization hopes to support a record number of residents who will actively use Eyebeam’s facilities and tools. The residencies will begin in September, 2015, lasting four to six months, dependent upon need. Residents will not receive housing but will receive some assistance in locating temporary housing. The call is open to both national and international applicants.

Eyebeam is seeking applications from artists, engineers, designers, and technologists, whose practice will clearly benefit from Eyebeam and mesh well, both in practice and in skill-sets, to create a collaborative cohort. The purpose of the residency is to support creation of new work that addresses the Focus Areas of this residency call while ideally fully utilizing Eyebeam’s tools, space, and community. The new works developed, and the process of their creation, will be presented by Eyebeam, with additional opportunities for public presentation and discussion.

Support: Eyebeam will provide stipends of up to $5,000 for up to four of the 10 incoming residents. Eyebeam will provide all residents with ample work space, access to a woodshop, and digital fabrication tools including those listed here. Priority will be given to those projects that clearly demonstrate a need for Eyebeam’s tools and workspace.

For more information, submission guidelines, application requirements, link to entry: http://eyebeam.org/calls/eyebeam-call-for-project-residencies-fallwinter-2015

About: A belief in progress and openness are core values of Eyebeam. This has been demonstrated through nearly 20 years of experimentation via the creative use and misuse of technology with the goal to innovate and develop better relationships between people and tools. Eyebeam believes that all creative work begins with a commitment to sustainability, equality, diversity, and concern for a better future. Across all focus areas, Eyebeam primarily supports projects that have real-world impact — Eyebeam encourages work that is paradigm shifting within a large spectrum of genres.
