The Long and Winding Road….

coffee and the blog

Dear Bay Area Art Grind Readers, Subscribers and Friends,

This month marks 6 years since the Bay Area Art Grind, originally named the SJSU Art Blog, started posting calls for artists, by artists. Our “big idea” was started by a small group of San Jose State University MFA graduate student friends to post calls for emerging artists and announcements of graduate student exhibitions. As time went on, we started to post calls and events beyond the SJSU art environment. Post graduate school, our core group also includes alumni from SFSU and most of the staff eventually moved away from the SF Bay Area, although still contribute. Currently, this site has posted over 6,000 posts and pages of calls for artists, listings of SF Bay Area events, and opportunities for artists far and wide. There was never a day missed without at least one post or call.

The calls are screened, you might even say curated, to meet a certain criteria by asking ourselves several key questions. Is this an opportunity which we wouldn’t mind seeing on our own artists resume? Is the juror someone we would want becoming familiar with our art? Is this a place we would like to see our art exhibited at?  We earnestly tried to avoid the following:  Places that seemed like art call mills (calls for artists with entry fees is the bulk of their total exhibitions), online-only exhibition calls, sites where their links did not work when investigated, calls with exorbitant entry fees, and places with staff or subscriber related past bad experiences (ie: damaged returned art, gallery always closed, hidden fees, etc). We’ve kept the emerging artist in mind because, well, that’s pretty much what we are.

With that being said, this type of research for calls with our standards takes a lot of time. This is time away from making art, writing, applying for grants, and doing research for our own art work. So, the Bay Area Art Grind will be slowing down in posts in the coming weeks and then new posts will cease by the end of October, 2014. All posts will be available for search until December 31st, 2014. We will keep our Twitter feed for links to interesting calls we see, intriguing art news and exhibitions/events of interest. We will also keep our Flickr site with photos from some of our staff seeing art out and about in our travels.

Thank you to our devoted subscribers and followers who advised, gave suggestions, sent us love and support, and helped us grow over the years.

Keep making art!

~Barbara Horiuchi, Bay Area Art Grind Editor & Founder

Eyebeam (NY) Call for Applicants: Techne! Eyebeam Residency Spring/Summer 2015, with stipend

eyebeam

Eyebeam (NY) Call for Applicants: Techne! Eyebeam Residency Spring/Summer 2015, with stipend

Deadline: November 21st, 2014 at 12noon EST

From their call: In light of tectonic shifts in the overlap between art, culture and technology in recent years, Eyebeam is throwing open its Residency program to a single invocation – Techne! 

Techne, for the Greeks, was inclusive of the arts as well as craftsmanship and engineering. Now, the chasm between art and technology is narrowing, with boundaries between arts, craft, and aesthetics blending in exciting new ways, largely due to high-tech/low-cost computation. For seventeen years, Eyebeam has been at the forefront of bringing these worlds together and with this residency Eyebeam again looks to support practitioners who agree that the most interesting and visionary work need not be hemmed in by genre or medium but can flourish through technological savvy.

We are asking you — artists, digital creators, engineers, creative technologists, researchers and cultural producers — to join us in creating provocative work that helps realign the arts to the mechanic. As devices become further extensions of the body, in a time when advertisements are tailored to hyper-specific, localized desires and privacy is nearly a luxury product, artistic practice is more important than ever in influencing the cultural trajectory. This residency cycle Eyebeam is looking to support new work that is deeply examining artistic creation in relation to emergent technology in various forms, and will consider all proposals, especially those that are provocative and have positive real-world impact.

Eyebeam will grant up to $5,000 to each selected residency project, either to a single individual or a collaboration of two or more artists. The incoming number of residents will be determined by the quality of applications and available funding. 

Residents will be selected to join continuing residents and fellows for an upcoming 5-month cycle, ideally beginning in mid-March, 2015 but potentially later. If a different start date is preferable, please indicate that on your application inside the “additional information” section.

Residency dates: March 2015 through July 2015 (5 months)

For more detailed information and link to entry: http://eyebeam.org/calls/techne-eyebeam-residency-springsummer-2015

About: Eyebeam is an art and technology center that provides a fertile context and state-of-the-art tools for digital research and experimentation. It is a lively incubator of creativity and thought, where artists and technologists actively engage with culture, addressing the issues and concerns of our time. Eyebeam challenges convention, celebrates the hack, educates the next generation, encourages collaboration, freely offers its contributions to the community, and invites the public to share in a spirit of openness: open source, open content and open distribution.

Eyebeam, 540 West 21st Street, New York City, NY

En Em Art Space (CA), International Call for Entries: Sugar Rush- Juried Group Show

2240En Em Art Space (CA), International Call for Entries: Sugar Rush- Juried Group Show

Deadline: November 17th, 2014

From their call:  The presence of sugar in our lives is nearly inescapable. From Candy Land to Candy Crush Saga, visions of sugary wonderlands populate some of our culture’s favorite pastimes. And if the inviting images of sweets in bright, saturated colors aren’t enough to tingle our taste buds, the actual sweets we consume are brimming with enough sugar to light up the pleasure centers of our brain, and to make us return for more.

Why are we so obsessed with all things sweet, especially when we know that it’s also responsible for many of our modern health problems? Studies have shown that our brain responds to sugar the same way that it would to an addictive substance such as cocaine. Sugar’s addictive quality may help explain why Americans, on average, consume about 150 pounds of sugar a year! But our obsession for all things sweet also spills over into our indulgence for culturally sweet (borderline saccharine) experiences such as child pageants, home décor, pets in sweaters.

Formerly known as “white gold” by Bristish colonists, sugar’s status has evolved from being an exotic sweet spice only enjoyed by society’s elites to its ubiquitous, highly processed forms available to the masses today. Artists such as Kara Walker and Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons have addressed the history of sugar and its reliance on slave labor. “Sugar Rush” will focus on artworks that address the topic from multiple perspectives. Works can celebrate sweetness, or criticize it, or simply reference it in technique; works may mimic the saturated, rainbow colors of candy or the thick swirls of cake frosting. They can be any 2D or 3D mediums including but not limited to: works on paper, prints, books, photography, paintings, sculptures, and installation. Sorry, we are not accepting videos. There is no size requirement.

The guest juror and co-curator for this exhibition will be Rhonda Coleman.

A maximum of three entries are allowed with $25 application fee. This is an international call for artists. Fee is waived for Sacramento Area artists (Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and El Dorado Counties). Use coupon code “Sugar Free.”
