San Francisco State University (CA), Submissions for Presentations: Cinema De-Centered

San Francisco State University (CA), Submissions for Presentations: Cinema De-Centered

Deadline: August 31st, 2017 

As the primary mode of experiencing moving images has drifted from the silver screen to home entertainment and digital devices, cinema’s role in popular culture must be interrogated. Just as the digital age has forced physical film onto the brink of extinction, so too has the movie theater become a place of decreasing significance. Simultaneously, definitions of cinema continue to expand. As disciplines have coalesced around terms like “new media” and “digital media,” the increasing ephemerality of cultural objects in the digital realm should be questioned. This conference seeks to explore contemporary moving images in the context of cinema in the digital age. Approaches may include but are not limited to: historiographical accounts of cinema and digital culture, de-centering or queering normative cultural texts, exploring new genres or categories of moving images, and investigating social implications of digital media texts.

Potential topics for consideration:
-Moving images and historicity in the digital age
-Cinematic form in relation to other media such as: video games, social networks, virtual reality, etc.
-Emergent forms of contemporary moving images
-Moving image texts that transgress boundaries through form or content
-Intersectional potentialities of race, class, gender, and sexuality in the digital realm
-Temporal displacement or ephemerality in digital culture
-Cultural studies and digital artifacts
-Traditional cinematic forms that de-center the viewer or medium such as: slow cinema, experimental film, polemic film, etc.

We are accepting submissions from graduate students, lecturers, post-doctorate, adjunct faculty, and working artists of all disciplinary backgrounds. We welcome presentations and video essays on papers, films, and other forms of visual media. In order to be considered, please submit an abstract of the presentation (300-500 words) as well as a brief biographical statement (100 words) to Chase Menaker, Gabrielle Vasso, and Pavel Koshukov at CSGSA@mail.sfsu.edu

Princeton University (NJ), International Call for Applicants: Princeton Arts Fellows, Academic Years 2018 –2019 and 2019 – 2020

Accepting applications in Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts

Deadline: September 19th, 2017, 11:59pm EST

From their call: Princeton Arts Fellows, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, film makers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists—this list is not meant to be exhaustive—who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community.

Fellowships are for two 10-month academic years. An $81,000 USD salary for each year is included. Fellows will be in residence for academic years 2018–19 and 2019–20 at Princeton, interacting with our students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but Fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship.

Interviews of finalists will take place on campus during January 8th to 9th, 2018. All finalists are expected to attend the on-campus interview.

While Fellows need not reside in Princeton, they will be required to spend a significant part of the week on campus.

This Fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a PhD or any other advanced degree. Holders of PhD degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (CA), Call for Applicants: FiberSpace Exhibition Program

San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (CA), Call for Applicants: FiberSpace Exhibition Program

Deadline: Applications are welcome at any time and are reviewed quarterly.

From their call: FiberSpace is an exhibition platform at San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (SJMQT) where the museum provides gallery space and artists supply the work and resources necessary to mount a professional exhibit. FiberSpace exhibitions incorporate the work of three or more fiber artists along a unified theme.

Through FiberSpace, we aim to bring contemporary local artists in contact with the wider public of San Jose and the Bay Area. To engage and enrich our community, artists exhibiting in FiberSpace are required to develop and carry out at least one outreach program, such as a workshop, lecture, tour, or performance.

Applications must have a minimum of three exhibiting artists. The applicants will designate a managing curator for the exhibition, who can be, but is not required to be, one of the exhibiting artists. Due to the nature of the exhibition space, only a limited number of three-dimensional works requiring 360º viewing can be considered. The majority of works in the exhibit should be two-dimensional or otherwise able to be displayed on a wall.

While basic operational expenses of the exhibit are covered by the museum, exhibiting groups are responsible for installation, publicity, and material components such as labels and signage. An integral element of the group’s FiberSpace proposal will be a plan for what portion of costs the applicants will provide. Support can come from a variety of sources, including grants or entry fees from an open call to artists.

Additionally, the majority of works exhibited must be available for sale. Sales will be handled by the museum store, and all proceeds will be split evenly between the participants and the museum. Any work sold must remain for the duration of the exhibit.

Each FiberSpace exhibition is on display for two months. Staff and board members of SJMQT are ineligible to apply or exhibit during or for six months after the end of their term.

Applicants are accepted based on the strength of their thematic concept, submitted work, community engagement proposal, and financial support. Prior experience with curatorial and exhibition practices is encouraged, but not required. There is no application fee. However, if an application is accepted and scheduled there is a fee of $250 to assist with basic facilities preparation costs. This can be included within your overall funding proposal.

This project proposal was originally sent out for the month of June 2017 with the projected opening of the BART Plaza set for November 2017. Since then, BART has projected the construction to be completed by January 2018, allowing the Civic Arts Commission more leniency on the duration of the Call for Artists. This reissuance will allow more applicants to join those who have already applied, increasing the diversity of sculptures available to the Berkeley community.

With over 40,000 commuters a day, plus a steady amount of pedestrians streaming through downtown, the new Downtown Berkeley BART plaza will offers an exciting high-profile opportunity for an artist to display an existing artwork in this important civic space.   The renovated BART plaza will serve an important place-making function for the downtown area and will improve access for residents, employees, students and visitors.

Eligibility is open to professional, practicing artists/teams who reside in California. Entries not meeting eligibility guidelines will be withdrawn from consideration. Please refer to the Request for Proposals under “Artist Selection Considerations” for more information on eligibility.

The Project Budget for the temporary sculpture display is $25,000 inclusive of all associated costs such as artist fee, transportation of artwork to and from the project site, installation and de-installation costs, as well as any required engineering, permit and insurance costs. The selected artist must engage a professional, licensed art handler or contractor for the installation and de-installation of the sculpture .
