Artists around the world are invited to take part in the international competition organized by the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2015 for the spring of next year.

From their call: The International Competition of GICBiennale 2015 whole-heartedly welcomes works by artists that re-interpret traditional values of ceramics in truly unique ways, breaking away from the conventional dichotomy of ceramics as design and ceramics as art.  Ceramic artists are pushing the boundaries of ceramics ever outward, and the boundary between ceramics as design and ceramics as art is increasingly becoming blurred.  This competition will focus on the possibilities for ceramic art to expand its territory by discovering artworks of mixed materials and made by techniques of other genres and ceramics fused with other genres of art, not to mention the values inherent to ceramics. 

The International Competition of GICBiennale 2015 will be an opportunity to display your imagination and creativity to the fullest.  Come and join this competition that will open the future of ceramics, presenting diverse issues facing us today including political, societal, religious, cultural, and environmental issues along with aesthetic values.

Theme: There is no separate theme regarding entries to the International Competition.

Eligibility: There are no specific categories for entries.  The following works are welcome:

* Functional ceramics (design), ceramics as expression (art), and ceramic works that attempt to reinterpret tradition.

* Ceramic works mixed with materials and made partly by techniques of other genres, and ceramics fused with other genres of art.

There is no online application form offered in advance.  If you are applying from another country please check the Korean time carefully.

Mercer County Community College (NJ), Call for Entries, Playful Transcendence: Unveiling Digital Interactivity

Mercer County Community College (NJ), Call for Entries, Playful Transcendence: Unveiling Digital Interactivity

Deadline: September 1st, 2014

Digital interactivity enables sophisticated technology or facilitates escapism. It focuses on the user and exhibits simple conveyance and ease of use. However, its utility should not compromise its capacity. Digital interactivity engages and immerses audiences in active learning experiences of depth and meaning. It encourages play, evokes emotional responses, reacts to user input, rewards participation, and bridges visual contents to physical environments. These attributes allow digital interactivity to be more than just an enabler or a facilitator. There are many forms ranging from environmental simulations to experimental web-based productions to volumetric projections. This show is in search of those who create works that exemplify these traits and transcend common technological convention and compliance.

For complete information, including submission process, email Gallery Director Dylan Wolfe at gallery@mccc.edu

Local Cloth Inc. and the Haywood Community College Creative Arts Program (NC), National Call for Artists: EXCITE–An Exhibit of Contemporary Textiles & Fiber Art

1754Local Cloth Inc. and the Haywood Community College Creative Arts Program (NC), National Call for Artists: EXCITE–An Exhibit of Contemporary Textiles & Fiber Art

Deadline: August 26th, 2014

EXCITE — \ik’-sīt, ek-  a: to call to activity, b: to rouse to an emotional response, c: to arouse by appropriate stimuli

“A longing for excitement can be satisfied without external means, within oneself; for creating is the most intense excitement one can come to know.” ~Anni Albers, Weaving Instructor, Black Mountain College, 1933 – 1949

Eligibility: Student, amateur and professional textile and fiber artists from throughout the United States. Work must have been completed after Dec. 1st, 2013, and must be available for exhibit Oct. 6th – Dec. 9th, 2014.

Exhibition Theme: The theme is contemporary fiber work inspired or reflective of the design ideals set forth by Anni Albers at Black Mountain College, where she formed and taught the weaving program.  This could include decorative fiber works inspired by her writings or textiles, or the unique design concepts that flourished at the alternative educational experience that was Black Mountain College from 1933-1957 in Western North Carolina.

In keeping with the mission of Local Cloth to support and sustain the regional fiber and textile arts economy and professions through collaboration, education and innovation, the work must include at least one material or resource obtained within a 100-mile radius of the artwork’s origination. For example, a work may include fiber or yarn sourced from a local farm, spun by a local mill or dyed with local materials; cloth woven, felted, knitted, crocheted, dyed, printed, repurposed or otherwise created by another local artisan; or artisan skills sourced locally to enhance or embellish the work.

Considering the emphasis on, and experimentation with, materials that guided Anni Albers’ weaving, this combination of requirements is a natural extension of her brilliance, yet is reflective of the contemporary mindset.

Jury Criteria: Entries will be juried upon a work’s embodiment of the theme; creativity in using local resources; and excellence in design and craftsmanship. A list of available local resources for artists within the Local Cloth region will be available at www.localcloth.org. Artists from outside the Local Cloth fiber shed are encouraged to research available resources within their own 100-mile fiber sheds.

Entry fee.

Deadline: August 31st, 2014

Fieldwork: Marfa is the joint project of two leading European art academies, Les Beaux-Arts de Nantes and HEAD – Genève (Geneva University of Art and Design).
