SJMQTSan Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (CA), International Call for Artists: International TECHstyle Art Biennial (ITAB4)

Deadline: October 22nd, 2018

In 2010, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles launched its signature event, the International TECHstyle Art Biennial (ITAB). Returning now for its fourth incarnation, ITAB is a juried exhibition of work by artists merging fiber media with new information and communication technologies in their artistic processes, as a medium of artistic expression, and/or in the content of their work. Leveraging its location in Silicon Valley, ITAB serves as the premiere platform for introducing the work of artists exploring the intersection of fiber and technology to a global community.

Fibers, textiles, and the language of textile patterning have achieved wide attention in contemporary art practice often as a means of evoking an experience that is both historical and contemporary. ITAB seeks to expose and explore the tensions between and among works by artists using fiber media whose work employs diverse artistic disciplines: architecture, fashion, fiber art, installation art, interior design, new media, painting, sculpture, etc. Artwork demonstrating a keen understanding and mastery of the aesthetic, structural/technical, and semiotic possibilities of fiber and of digital, computerized, or networked information and communication technologies are the hallmark of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles’ International TECHstyle Art Biennial.

Artists may submit up to three (3) works. The entry fee is $35 for San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles members, $45 for non-members. Only one entry fee per artist is required (includes up to three submissions).

Jurors:  Nathalie Miebach, Clay Bavor, and Janet Echelman

Requirements: 1. Entries must be original work completed after 2016.
2. Artists must be 18 years of age or older.
3. Collaborative work will be considered as a single entry. Artists submitting both collaborative and individual works must apply separately.
4. Work must not exceed 6 feet in any single dimension and not more than 100 lbs.
5. Installation pieces must state total space requirement on entry form.
6. Work must be original in concept and design and not be the result of a class or workshop.

Currently we’re looking for new works representing a variety of media, including sculpture, mosaics, electronic and interactive art, and other forms of visual expression.

The City is especially interested in showcasing an interactive artwork in its Veterans Community Plaza.  Special consideration is given to art that reflects the city’s agricultural past and/or the community’s current ties to developments in technology, though this is not a requirement.

Artists whose work is selected for inclusion receive a $5,000 stipend to help defray insurance, transportation and other costs.

Both the artists and their work will be promoted through local newspapers, on the City’s website, and in a citywide Arts Tour brochure. Selected work will be on loan for a period of two years.

American Academy in Rome (IT), National Call for Applicants: 2019 Rome Prize Fellowship, with stipend

American Academy in Rome (IT), National Call for Applicants: 2019 Rome Prize Fellowship, with stipend

Deadline: November 1st, 2018    

For over a century, the American Academy in Rome has awarded the Rome Prize to support innovative and cross-disciplinary work in the arts and humanities. Each year, the prize is awarded to about thirty artists and scholars who represent the highest standard of excellence and who are in the early or middle stages of their careers.

Fellowships are awarded in the following disciplines:

  • Ancient Studies
  • Architecture
  • Design (includes graphic, industrial, interior, exhibition, set, costume, and fashion design, urban design, city planning, engineering, and other design fields)
  • Historic Preservation and Conservation
  • Landscape Architecture (includes environmental design and planning, landscape/ecological urbanism, landscape history, sustainability and ecological studies, and geography)
  • Literature (includes fiction, literary nonfiction, and poetry)
  • Medieval Studies
  • Modern Italian Studies
  • Musical Composition
  • Renaissance and Early Modern Studies
  • Visual Arts (includes painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, film/video, installation, new media, digital arts, and other visual-arts fields)

Each Rome Prize winner is provided with a stipend, meals, a bedroom with private bath, and a study or studio. Those with children under eighteen live in partially subsidized apartments nearby. Winners of half- and full-term fellowships receive stipends of $16,000 and $28,000, respectively. Winners of the two-year fellowships receive $28,000 annually.

Rome Prize winners are the core of the Academy’s residential community, which includes Affiliated Fellows, Residents, and Visiting Artists and Scholars.

Owing to the fluctuating dollar/euro exchange rate and the high cost of living in Rome, the stipends offered may not cover all expenses. This is especially true for Rome Prize Winners who come to Rome with families. The American Academy in Rome welcomes spouses/companions and children of Rome Prize Winners. However, Fellows with families live in subsidized apartments for which they pay rent; they are also responsible for meals of family members. Thus they often incur expenses that exceed the Fellow’s stipend, so those wishing to bring their families are advised to supplement their stipends with additional funds.

Full-term fellowships generally run from early September through the following June. Winners of half-term fellowships may indicate a preference to begin in September or February.

Eligibility: US citizens, and those foreign nationals who have lived in the United States for three years immediately preceeding the application deadline, may apply for the NEH postdoctoral fellowships in ancient studies, medieval studies, Renaissance and early modern studies, or modern Italian studies. Applicants for all Rome Prize Fellowships, except those applying for the National Endowment for the Humanities postdoctoral fellowship, must be United States citizens at the time of the application. Undergraduate students are not eligible for Rome Prize fellowships. Previous winners of the Rome Prize are not eligible to reapply. Graduate students in the humanities may apply only for predoctoral fellowships only if they are ABD.

Bay Area Art Grind: 10 Years After

Ten years ago today, a blog was born.

September 2008: A group of graduate students at San Jose State University bandied about a big idea of a website for artists, by artists, around for several weeks. This big idea, as we called it in the beginning, was for a website of curated calls and opportunities for artists. Initially, we wanted to post information pertinent for the SJSU MFA grad students at the time, but also let them know of exhibition opportunities and current job postings. We called the site the SJSU Art Blog and the first post was ten years ago today, October 15th, 2008. Over time, we found our audience grew beyond SJSU and in 2011, we changed the name to the Bay Area Art Grind.

Calls and opportunities are screened weekly. Sometimes, organizations email us with opportunities. In most cases, we search daily for calls and opportunities to post. When a promising opportunity is found, the editor(s) check out the links to the site to see if all the information is still current and legitimate, look at past exhibitions at the venue, check the fees (ridiculous or somewhat reasonable or the always wonderful –no fee), and post the opportunity. Our goal at Bay Area Art Grind has been, and will always be, to try to help other artists find opportunities we wouldn’t mind having on our own artist resume, or that elusive job in the arts, or information to help other artists. It is a time consuming, process—but, as editor, it has become my own personal mission to help other artists 10 years on…and it will always be a free service for our audience. Navigating the roads of an art career, possibly balanced with another job(s) to support art making, taking care of family or just oneself, and trying to find time to make art as well as finding opportunities makes for a full plate…. and we just want to help.

I hope you continue to find Bay Area Art Grind useful for your art endeavors. And we always enjoy hearing how an opportunity found on our site has helped your art career–share your stories with us!

Happy Birthday to us at Bay Area Art Grind…and keep making art!

Best,
Barb Horiuchi
Editor, Bay Area Art Grind

Est-Nord-Est (CAN), Call for Applicants: Résidence d´Artistes Program, 2019, with stipend

logo_petitEst-Nord-Est (CAN), Call for Applicants: Résidence d´Artistes Program, 2019, with stipend

Deadline: December 1st, 2018

Est-Nord-Est (ENE) is an artist-run centre the mandate of which is to provide an international community of artists and authors in contemporary art with support by offering space and time for research and experimentation, as well as privileged access to local resources and knowhow.

The year 2019 is pivotal in the history of ENE: following the complete reconstruction of the centre’s premises on its current site, the year will be one of change as ENE inaugurates its new home.

The centre is situated in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, a village on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, in a unique geographic and historical locale. The predominant aspects of the landscapes are farms, forests, and the river. Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is situated 115 km from Quebec City and 350 km from Montreal, Canada.

Originally based on the idea of encounters between sculptors with contemporary practices and those using regional traditional skills, ENE now welcomes contemporary visual-arts artists from all disciplines. The residencies at ENE are intended for professional artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. They offer artists and authors an opportunity to explore their research more deeply, to experiment, and to create in a cultural space that is unique, lively, and stimulating. ENE is a member of Res Artis, Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes and of the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec.

The eight-week residency periods bring together four artists and one author writing about contemporary art and are generally offered in the spring, summer, and fall. However, this year ENE undertook a major capital investment project, as part of which its premises will be completely reconstructed by summer 2019. Due to this major construction project, ENE is cancelling its spring 2019 residency and will offer residencies in the summer and fall. As a consequence, only eight artists and two authors will be selected for ENE’s 2019 programming, which will be held in the new building for the first time.

The 8-Week Residency Includes:

  • Residency honorarium of $1,500
  • Access to an individual studio-workshop to be used for work and lodging
  • Access to specialized equipment (wood, metal, ceramics)
  • Access to a documentation centre (books, magazines)
  • Access to local resources
  • Technical and logistical support
  • Use of a bicycle

Residency dates:
Summer: July 8th to August 30th, 2019
Fall: September 16th to November 8th, 2019

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

Innovate_and_Investigate_folds-Crops_A_2011_03

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

Deadline: November 14th, 2018, 11:59pm EST

From their call: If you describe something as surreal, you mean that the elements in it are combined in a way you would not normally expect, as in a dream.

Anyone who’s taken a lot of photos has  undoubtedly created an image, either intentionally or by accident, which has an element or elements that don’t quite fit, that look out of place. This can be pleasing or disturbing, it can be  subtle, like something fleetingly glimpsed in the corner of the eye. Or it can be a jarring and distinct part of the composition –for example the paintings of Magritte or the photos of Man Ray.

Your challenge for this exhibit is to find something in your photos that seems out of place.  It doesn’t have to be an in-your-face element; in fact, less obvious can be better, giving the viewer a double take experience or a mystery to contemplate. But both the subtle and the blatant will fit this theme, Surreal, quite well. Imagination is the key.

Juror: Ralph Hassenpflug is an internationally acclaimed photographer whose work has been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Budapest, and Moscow, among many other locations.His work consists primarily of black and white images illustrating the themes of exile and of haunting landscapes in the USA and in Europe.

He’s well known as a tutor and teacher, working from his studio in Camden, ME. He’s begun a series of workshops, the first to be held in Paris in November, that emphasize the use of dream imagery, depth psychology, and personal vision in creative photography.

 Entry fee.

Washington State University’s Department of Fine Arts, Call for Submissions, The Body: Power, Meaning & Representation in Contemporary Art

Washington State University’s Department of Fine Arts, Call for Submissions, The Body: Power, Meaning & Representation in Contemporary Art

Deadline: October 28th, 2018, 11:59pm PST

From their call: Washington State University’s Department of Fine Arts invites artists to submit works for consideration for a group exhibition exploring ideas about the body. We invite artists to submit works in any media including new media, photography, painting, video, performance, sculpture, installation, intermedia etc. We invite artists to interpret ideas about the body and its relationship to power and representation. The human body has always played a central role in art. Artistic representations of the body are found in nearly every culture in the world. While authority over the human body has long been determined by gender and class, in today’s highly globalized and pluralistic contemporary art world, artists view the body as a malleable site of meaning and power, not as an archetype but as a performative instrument, a vessel to be filled and surface upon which the artist or viewer may project her own fears, desires and dreams.
