Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site (PA), International Call for Proposals: Site-Specific Art Installations, 2018

visual-learnEastern State Penitentiary Historic Site (PA), International Call for Proposals: Site-Specific Art Installations, 2018

Deadline: June 14th, 2017, 4:00pm EST

From their call: Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is currently accepting proposals for its 2018 season of site-specific artist installations. There are two funding levels: $7,500 per standard project, and $15,000 per Criminal Justice Today 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.

The Sound Transit Art Program (STart) is developing a major artwork to screen the perimeter of a planned train yard in Bellevue, Washington, otherwise known as the Sound Transit Operations and Maintenance Facility: East (OMFE). STart is seeking a professional artist who demonstrates an interest in and has past experience developing lineal artwork. The artwork response is anticipated to be fabricated largely in metal.

Artwork Project Description: Due to sight lines and the future trail activity, the most significant opportunity at the OMFE is its perimeter fence, particularly on the facility’s western edge. The OMFE’s design/build contractor will work with the selected artist to develop the supporting structure for this perimeter fence and will fabricate and install that structure and concrete base.

Design budget: $75,000 (all-inclusive of fees, costs, and taxes)
Fabrication and installation budget: $750,000 (all-inclusive of all fees, costs, travel and taxes)
Eligibility: open to professional artists or artist teams who reside in the United States

OMFE Project Summary: Sound Transit, based in Seattle, Washington, is in the design and construction phase for Link light rail corridors north, south and east of Seattle. The agency is building a network of light rail, commuter rail and bus rapid transit to serve the greater Puget Sound metropolitan area, including cities in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.

To care for the additional 90 light rail vehicles that will be added to the fleet when those light rail extensions open, Sound Transit is building a second train yard that will be in Bellevue, Washington. The OMFE will be a nearly 25-acre, rectangular switching yard, with maintenance and operations buildings clustered in its center. The south and east edges of the facility are being designed to accommodate future “transit-oriented development” projects, while the north and west sides of the facility will abut a bicycle/pedestrian trail and protected wetlands.

PH21 Gallery (HU), International Call for Photographers: Punctum

PH21 Gallery (HU), International Call for Photographers: Punctum

Deadline: February 6th, 2017

Roland Barthes in his Camera Lucida famously introduced the concept punctum in opposition with studium. Studium refers to the manifest content of the photograph that is responsible for creating interest in the image, and we may be interested in the subject of photographs for all sorts of reasons. However, it is only images with punctum that capture our attention for the sake of their formal photographic qualities, regardless of their depicted content. It is a detail of the image that sharply captures our attention, attracts us to the photograph and makes it stand out of the thousands of other photographs we encounter. It is a formalist condition, and discovering the presence of punctum in an image depends on the searching eye of the spectator. Thus punctum is regarded as a highly subjective notion by many, while others may argue that there could be objective ways of demonstrating the presence of punctum in some works. It is likely among the most challenging tasks for a photographer to create images with punctum but this is precisely what we are looking for in this exhibition.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Punctum. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this topic and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The topic is broadly construed, as the presence of punctum is independent of generic or stylistic constraints.

One juror’s choice and up to three honorable mentions will be selected and announced. The juror’s choice receives three free entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.)

Juror: Zsolt Bátori is a philosopher of art and photographer, living in Budapest.

This is a juried international photography exhibition. Exhibition dates: March 9th – April 4th, 2017 at PH21 Gallery in Budapest, Hungary.

Website link for more detailed information: http://www.ph21gallery.com/cfe-punctum

About: PH21 Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space established in 2012 in Budapest, Hungary. The mission of the gallery is to provide group and solo exhibition opportunities and international exposure for contemporary photographers around the world. To this end we invite emerging and established photographers to participate in our regular calls for entries for solo and themed group exhibitions. We have hosted a number of inspiring shows since we opened, and we have had the honour of exhibiting works of talented photographers from all corners of the world.

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: Body/Image

Deadline: March 22nd, 2017 11:59pm EST

From their call:  In the earliest days of experiments in photographic methodology the various emulsions available were too slow to permit the portrayal of the human form, and even more advanced processes like daguerreotype and tintype required lengthy motionless sitting times by the subject. Nevertheless, the human figure has been mainstay of the photographer since almost the inception of the medium. Figure photography imitating the style and subjects of classical painting constituted some of the fine art photography of the time. As technology advanced, photographers began to create their own figure photography sub-genres, ranging from the crass to the sublime.Fine art figure photography is now routinely taught in art curriculum.

For this exhibition we’re looking for examples of accomplished photography that present the human body as subject. The nude in nature, in the studio, and in more candid situations are all appropriate. And nudity is not necessary; any photo that depicts the body as an artful form to be celebrated is appropriate. Juror’s Choice receives a 30×48″ vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image, free entry into a future exhibition, a free exhibition catalog; Honorable Mentions receive free exhibition catalogs and free entry in a future exhibition. People’s Choice gains free entry into a future exhibit.

Juror: Gary Samson is an award-winning photographer and photographic educator.

 Entry fee.
