A Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2018 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

ABOGA Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2018 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Deadline for submissions for the Initial Letter of Interest: September 18th, 2017, 11:59pm EST

From their call: We are looking at the process and relationships of socially engaged art projects.

We see the aesthetic qualities of socially engaged art here—in how alliances are formed and maintained, the way disparate stakeholder groups are coordinated, how power dynamics are navigated, and how bridges are built between many different types of people in a socially engaged art project.

We create content that illuminates and deepens understanding of these relationships. A primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films and field research that are artist-led, and are grounded in the perspective of project participants, as well as publications, web content, and public programming.

We also use this focus on process and relationships to advocate for a more expanded sense of what art is, how artists can work in communities, and how art might be integrated into everyday life. Our field research, documentary films, and other content serve as the basis for curriculum, toolkits, and consulting that enable more artists to work in partnership with non-artist stakeholders.

Artists receive $20,000 in minimally restricted support.

Eligibility requirements for the ABOG Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art:

  • Artists or artist collectives working independently of a 501c3 nonprofit are eligible. If you are working under a registered 501c3, you are not eligible to apply
  • If you are a collective, you must submit one application. Multiple applications for collectives are not permitted
  • Anyone registered as a student at the time of applying is not eligible
  • Applicants must be US citizens or US residents with legal work status
  • Applicants must be at least 25 years of age
  • You are not eligible if you have received an ABOG Fellowship as an individual or as part of an artist collective in the last 3 years

Website link: http://www.abladeofgrass.org/fellowship-program/

Note: This is a two-step application process. Semi-finalists from the first round will be invited to submit a full application with an extended narrative, budget, and a timeline.

About: A Blade of Grass nurtures socially engaged art. They provide resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. They evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue. They are located in New York City.

Songzhuang Art Festival, China, International Call for Artists: Songzhuang International Photo Biennale

Songzhuang Art Festival, China, International Call for Artists: Songzhuang International Photo Biennale

Deadline: August 10th, 2017

Songzhuang International Photo Biennale (Songzhuang Photo) is a major part of the 10th Annual Songzhuang Art Festival. It will be held in the Czech China Contemporary Museum (CCCM) on September 29th to October 13th, 2017. More than sixty domestic and international artists/photographers will be selected to exhibit their work.

There is two main categories of the photo biennale: 1.) International Contemporary Photography. 2.) Early Chinese Photography Review and Collection.

Theme of International Contemporary Photography: “Live in This Moment, Return to the Origin”

Theme Idea:
The Origin refers to the beginning of everything. Human beings have gone through wars and peace, experienced turmoil and tranquility, tasted sorrow and joy… Nowadays, mankind’s exploitation of Mother Earth, and the reliance on the fast-paced economy have long ago exceed the needs. To satisfy the bottomless lust and aggressive development of the human race, we become mindless and have forgotten the Origin.

Make a life, not a living. We should not be the mindless parts of a machine, nor materialism worshipers who live by instincts; instead, humans should regulate their behaviour in terms of divinity, with limited pursuit of material pleasure and unlimited pursuit of spiritual values. Only by doing so, the lives of species on Earth can prosper in harmony.

Eligibility: Open to domestic and international photo artists/photographers that are working within the spectrum of photo-based work, 21 years and older.

Media: We are looking for works that are primarily photograph such as traditional or digital photography. It also include mobile photography. Mixed media works will be accepted only when photo-or video-related materials are the dominant aspect. Traditional drawing, painting and sculpture will not be accepted. If there is any confusion over the media, final decisions will be made by the jurors.

There is no fee to enter/no submission fee.

For more detailed information and submission instructions: https://szipb.org/submission-3/

About: Songzhuang International Photo Biennale (Songzhuang Photo) is a legally registered art organization sponsored by both domestic and international curators/directors, critics, artists, writers, and poets in Songzhuang, Beijing. The Songzhuang Photo is based on the idea of a permanent exhibition with changing themes; through peer support and mutual encouragement our aim is to promote the artistic development and professional advancement of domestic and international artists/photographers.

Deadline: August 9th, 2017, 11:59pm EST

From their call: We’re proud to present Multiples, Darkroom Gallery’s 99th exhibition. In keeping with the repetitiveness of the numeral nine in 99, the theme of repeating subjects seemed like a good way to mark this milestone. As in the above photo by our juror William Albert Allard, the subjects in your photos need not be alike, but they should be all of the same kind or genre, in this case three buildings. Other than that requirement the subjects of your entry can be anything.

Think of birds on a wire, triplets, a repetitive pattern in a natural  formation, like mountains, clouds and sand dune crests, a city skyline, patterns in graphic or decorative motifs. Look for the repeating forms in your life and photos!

All selected entries are exhibited in our gallery and included in a full color exhibit catalog;

  • Juror’s Choice receives a 30×48″ vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image, free entry into a future exhibition, and 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: Photographer and writer William Albert Allard has been a major force at National Geographic and in mainstream photography for over 50 years. It is said that as an intern in 1964 his intimate photographs of the Amish of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, were regarded as a landmark in the photographic evolution of the magazine. A former contributor to Magnum Photos, Allard has been published in most of the major magazines in the United States and abroad. Allard is one of the few photographers of his generation whose entire professional body of work is in color.

 Entry fee.

CERF+, National Call for Applicants: Artists “Get Ready” Grants

CERF+, National Call for Applicants: Artists “Get Ready” Grants

Deadline: August 15th, 2017

CERF+ announces new Artists “Get Ready” Grants to help artists working in craft disciplines safeguard their studios and protect their careers. In 2017, up to 10 grants of $500 for individual artists and $1,500 for groups of artists will be awarded on a competitive basis in two grant cycles to eligible artists towards the purchase of goods or services that will have a direct impact on increasing their emergency readiness.

“For over 30 years, CERF+’s financial assistance for artists experiencing career-threatening disasters has been critical in helping them get back on their feet and back to work,” said Executive Director Cornelia Carey. “We want to help artists avoid the impacts of these disasters before they happen. This new funding program will go a long way toward helping artists make that a reality.”

Artists are encouraged to use CERF+’s Risk Assessment  to generate ideas and review recommended activities in the Get Ready and Studio Safety sections of the www.cerfplus.org when applying for the Artists “Get Ready” Grant. Eligible activities include: business protection (business insurance, inventory software, business continuity planning, creating secure business record-keeping systems), studio safeguards (safety equipment, improvements to studio health and safety, purchasing safer materials and supplies), emergency/disaster readiness (emergency tools, supplies and equipment, studio upgrades to reduce disaster risk, theft protection measures) and career protection (legacy or estate planning, financial planning services, documentation or digitization of artwork and/or related records, legal counsel, enrolling in a professional development course or workshop).

Eligibility:

  • Be an artist or a group of artists with an ongoing history of producing a body of work in
    a craft discipline or disciplines (such as woodworkers, fiber artists, metalsmiths, glass potters, furniture makers, cultural-based craft, or alternative craft).
  • Be a legal U.S. resident.

Website link for more detailed information and to apply: https://cerfplus.org/get-ready-portal/get-ready-grants/

About: In 1985, the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (now a program of CERF+) began when co-founders Carol Sedestrom Ross, then president of American Craft Enterprises, and glassblower Josh Simpson recognized the inherent generosity within the craft community. Artists would “pass the hat” to collect monetary donations during shows and exhibitions in support of fellow artists dealing with emergencies. CERF+ was founded to expand this grassroots effort and has since provided almost $2 million in financial assistance and more than $400,000 in donated services to professional artists in craft disciplines nationwide. Mission: CERF+ serves artists who work in craft disciplines by providing a safety net to support strong and sustainable careers. CERF+’s core services are education programs, advocacy, network building and emergency relief.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Call for Applicants: 2018 United States and Canada Competition

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Call for Applicants: 2018 United States and Canada Competition

Deadline: September 19th, 2017

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation provides fellowships for advanced professionals in all fields — including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts — except the performing arts. To that end, the foundation awards approximately two hundred fellowships a year.

The fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. The program seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge or artistic creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a period ranging between six and twelve months. Since the purpose of the program is to help provide fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary.

Support is only available to individuals. Fellowships are not available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the development of websites or blogs.

The foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

Grant amounts vary, and the foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project.

Colorado Photographic Arts Center, International Call for Entries: Americana

PrintColorado Photographic Arts Center, International Call for Entries: Americana

Deadline: August 11th, 2017, midnight MST

From their call: From the mid through late 20th Century, the term “Americana” was largely associated with nostalgia for an idealized life in small towns and cities across the United States. Specifically for a time around the turn of the century, when American life and culture seemed congruent with the country’s understanding of itself and its ideals. The spirit of this time is often reflected in idealistic and sentimentalized portrayals of everyday life, with subject matter ranging from the local soda fountain, to heroic images of the American flag, apple pies and baseball. Clearly, the way we define “Americana” has vastly changed over the past 100 years.

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center invites photographers to submit work for a juried show, that addresses what “Americana” looks like today. What does it mean to you? Does it evoke a certain place? Or is it represented by a specific symbol, a monument, or a piece of American history? Perhaps you think of a particular person or a group of people? It could even be a political ideology, an attitude, or even a state of mind. In this call for entry, the possibilities are endless. We are looking for images that reflect your personal understanding of the contemporary American experience, and a broad definition of Americana.

Eligibility: Entry is open to regional, national, and international artists, members and non-members of CPAC. All lens-based media are eligible, including but not limited to images made by film or video camera, scanner, screen-capture, digital camera, and any means of mobile photography.

Juror: Darren Ching, is the owner of Klompching Gallery, established with Debra Klomp Ching in New York City. The gallery specializes in the sale and exhibition of contemporary fine art photography, representing an international roster of artists—placing artworks into numerous private, corporate and public collections. Mr. Ching’s involvement in photography spans nearly two decades and includes, panel presentations, jurying of competitions, consulting, design, and contributing to both online and print publications on the subject. Formerly the Creative Director of Photo District News (PDN), where for sixteen years he established the design direction of the magazine and was a perennial judge for its annual PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers issue. He is an Adjunct Faculty member at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York, and an External Examiner for the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
