Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site (PA), International Call for Proposals: Site-Specific Art Installations, 2017

visual-learnEastern State Penitentiary Historic Site (PA), International Call for Proposals: Site-Specific Art Installations, 2017

Deadline: June 15th, 2016

 

Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is currently accepting proposals for its 2017 season of site-specific artist installations. They’ve doubled their maximum funding from $7,500 to $15,000 per project. Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is a National Historic Landmark, the highest designation for an historic property under Federal law.

More than seventy artists have created installations for Eastern State Penitentiary’s cellblocks and yards. Some of these installations were among the most successful programming the site has presented, and brought perspectives and approaches that would not have been possible in traditional historic site programming. We seek installations that will explore Eastern State Penitentiary’s history, and evoke a broad range of emotions. We seek installations that will make connections between the complex history of this building and today’s criminal justice system and corrections policies. We want to humanize these difficult subjects with personal stories and distinct points of view. We want to hear new voices—voices that might emphasize the political, or humorous, or bluntly personal. We want our visitors to be challenged with provocative questions, and we’re prepared to face some provocative questions ourselves. In short, we seek memorable, thought-provoking additions to our public programming, combined with true excellence in artistic practice.

Deadline: May 31st, 2016

The City of Mountain View is a community of approximately 78,000 people located on the San Francisco Peninsula. Over the years, the City has instituted an arts program and built a collection of art using public/private partnership, community involvement, and some public funds. A major component of this program is a City policy known as the 1 Percent for Art Program which requires that 1 percent of all major City capital improvement projects over $1 million be spent on public art related to the project. This program is administered by the Visual Arts Committee (VAC), a seven-person, Council-appointed advisory committee that will recommend two to three alternatives to the City Council, whose decision is final.

Budget: The budget for the Mountain View Community Center public art project is 1 percent of the estimated $14 million construction budget, or $140,000, including art design, delivery, installation, and a potential stipend.

Budget Breakdown: Total $140,000
Exterior $40,000 to $60,000, One (1) location.
Interior $75,000, Not to exceed $75,000 for all three (3) locations.
Stipend Up to $5,000 Available to support artist(s) and artists’ team presentations, to be decided by the VAC.

The artwork and installations should be appropriate civic or public art suitable for display to a wide and diverse audience. It should have meaning relative to its setting and to the Mountain View community. All art pieces shall be wall-mounted and can either be two-dimensional or three-dimensional. A total of four art pieces will be commissioned for four specific locations. Art pieces shall not have significant weight that would require substantial structural support from the building.

HMK Hotel Maria Kapel (NL) International Open Call for Proposals for Artists & Curators (individuals or groups): 2017 Residency

04-Windows-and-closed-window-1024x690HMK Hotel Maria Kapel (NL) International Open Call for Proposals for Artists & Curators (individuals or groups):  2017 Residency

Deadline: June 1st, 2016

Once a year HMK sends out an open call for artists and curators to hand in a proposal for a residency period. A residency typically lasts for 4 or 8 weeks (note: the chapel is only available for up to 4 weeks before an exhibition). During a stay in our guesthouse, residents are invited to develop, execute and present new work in the chapel/exhibition space and/or elsewhere in Hoorn. The Netherlands is a small country that is easy to navigate by train, and we stimulate artists to also use the residency as an opportunity to explore other places, museums and project spaces.

Who may apply? Artists and curators (individuals or groups).

About our residency: During a stay at our guesthouse the artist/group of artists is invited to develop, execute and present a new project. Residencies vary in length and depend on the nature of the work; usually between 4 and 8 weeks. The exhibition with the residents´ work is open to the public, and lasts around 4 weeks.

All residents are offered: Full and free use of all accommodation, living, and working facilities (wireless internet, washing machine, basic tools, audio & video equipment). Prior to the residency HMK assists with finding appropriate funds to cover a travel/living/production budget, and during the residency production and technical assistance is made available. Furthermore, HMK is responsible for all promotional activities in relation to the projects, which include regional, national and international contacts.

Accommodation: The guesthouse is a short walk from the chapel. It has two bedrooms (one large and one small), a large living space, bathroom, and kitchen.

The studio/exhibition space is approx. 9 by 18 m, by 8m high, with 5 large church windows. Window blinds and scaffolding are available. The large inner garden can be used as well. Please be advised that the walls of the chapel are uneven and moist and therefore not very suitable to hang drawings.

Funding: The residency and use of all facilities is free. In collaboration with the artists, HMK aims to secure additional funding in order to provide a travel/living/production budget. Amounts depend on individual projects.

For more more detailed information submission guidelines and link to application: http://hotelmariakapel.nl/wp/residency/

About: Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK) is an artist-in-residence, exhibition space and cinema for contemporary visual art in the city centre of Hoorn; a historic town 40 km north of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. HMK is a non-profit organization that aims to assist young as well as more established artists from all over the world in the production of new work and promote exchanges between national and international artists, cultural institutions and the public. The studio/exhibition space of HMK is located in an early 16th century chapel, surrounded by a semi-private courtyard. This beautifully tranquil and spacious working environment offers the artists-in-residence a unique space for reflection, experimentation and production. HMK places the artist at the centre of its activities, and stimulates risk-taking as a key element of artistic development. The public program of exhibitions, screenings, lectures, workshops and publications, aims to challenge perceptions of what constitutes contemporary art, and bring the audience closer to the practice that motivates it.

LOGO 72New York Center for Photographic Arts (NYC4PA), International Call for Entries: Trees

Deadline: June 19th, 2016 (Midnight Pacific Time)

From their callThe New York Center for Photographic Arts (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.). Winners will receive $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition, on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the Trees 2016 catalog.

ThemeTrees are essential to the lifeblood of the world.  Roots hold the soil so erosion is mitigated.  They are home to birds, squirrels and many other of nature’s creatures.  They bear fruit and in the fall the colors enhance our lives. Trees can also be looming, ominous, and, in cases of stormy weather, dangerous.  They are integral to forests and jungles.  They stand alone on a hillside creating lovely shadows; shade a child on a hot day; are sturdy posts to tie up the pet dog, hold a hammock off the ground. Remember the lost art of the backyard laundry line. Send us your images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, roots…. 

Eligibility: This Call for Entries is open worldwide to both amateur and professional photographers.  NYC4PA invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate. Experimental and mixed techniques are welcome. Only 2-D work is eligible.

Juror: Traer Scott

Entry fee.

About: The mission of the New York Center for Photographic Art is to provide exhibition opportunities in the vibrant New York City gallery world to photographers around the globe.

Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation, National Call for Applicants: Arts Writers Grant Program

Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation, National Call for Applicants: Arts Writers Grant Program

Deadline: May 18th, 2016

Arts Writers Grant Applications are now being accepted for the Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program. The grant supports writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art through project-based grants, ranging from $15,000 to $50,000, issued directly to twenty individual authors a year. The Arts Writers Grant Program aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.

To be eligible for this grant, an arts writer must be:

  • an individual;
  • applying for a project about contemporary visual art;
  • an art historian, artist, critic, curator, journalist, or practitioner in an outside field who is strongly engaged with the contemporary visual arts;
  • a U.S. citizen, permanent resident of the United States, or holder of an O-1 visa;
  • at least twenty-five years old;
  • a published author (specific publication requirements vary depending on grant category; see the project-specific eligibility requirements).

By “contemporary visual art,” we mean visual art made since World War II. Projects on post-WWII work in adjacent fields—architecture, design, film, theater/performance, sound, etc.—will only be considered if they directly and significantly engage the discourses and concerns of contemporary visual art. Projects with a pre-WWII component will only be considered if the project’s main focus is contemporary.

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: ARTifact

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: ARTifact

Deadline: June 15th, 2016, 11:59pm EST

From their call:  Relics of the past rediscovered and redefined through the medium of photography.

To happen upon something forgotten, forsaken, hidden. To weave it a visual tale within a single frame. Finding what was once lost.

Just as Vivian Maier’s story, the secretive nanny-photographer who becomes a photography world sensation shortly after her death, spurs levels of excitement found in the rolls of undeveloped film and unacclaimed genius, a dropped scarf on the city street can alter the scene in many ways. It can become the scene.

Juror Davy Rothbart’s musings on this theme, “discarded items found in the weeds; abandoned buildings; broken-down trucks in a field; scraps of metal left to rust and decay. I’m reminded of a koan that my mom, a Buddhist teacher, often shares. She’ll hand someone a fresh scrap of paper, ask them to crumple it into a tight ball, and then uncrumple it. “Do you see,” she’ll ask, “within the crumpled paper, its original perfection?” All of the decayed, lost, abandoned places and things in these photographs possess their original glory and perfection and their wizened present hints at a rich, textured journey which is up to us to imagine.”

Darkroom Gallery is calling for photographs that redefine found objects or subjects of the past. Whether you are foraging in a far away land or in your own backyard we are looking for images that embody this murky realm of faded glory; haunting happenstance, and beauty found in the lost details of the human condition.

Entry fee.
