Gearbox Gallery (CA), Call for Northern California Artists: BLUETS

Gearbox Gallery (CA), Call for Northern California Artists: BLUETS

Deadline: June 26th, 2017, 10pm PST

From their call: We invite entries in any medium for BLUETS at GearBox Gallery in Oakland, CA. Submit work exploring this theme inspired by the writer Maggie Nelson, who has written that to love the color blue was to fall “under a spell, a spell I fought to stay under and get out from under, in turns.” Blue is commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, the imagination, cold, and sometimes with sadness. References to the color include blue chip, blue collar, the wild blue yonder, having the blues, singing the blues, out of the blue, once in a blue moon. The color blue has been said to physically calm and sedate, cool, and aid intuition. “There is no blue without yellow and without orange” — Vincent Van Gogh.

Eligibility: Open to artists over the age of 18 and living or working in Northern California. Please note, artwork must be hand delivered to GearBox Gallery in Oakland, CA if accepted for exhibition.

Juror: GearBox is pleased to announce Jack Fischer, principal of Jack Fischer Gallery as the juror of BLUETS. Currently at 311 Potrero Avenue and 1275 Minnesota Street in San Francisco, Jack Fischer is devoted to the work of outsider, self-taught, intuitive artists and continues to exhibit work he characterizes as “from the heart and the gut.”

Aperture Foundation (NY), International Call for Submissions: 2017 Summer Open

Aperture Foundation (NY), International Call for Submissions: 2017 Summer Open

Deadline: April 5th, 2017, 12noon EST

Statement from the jury:  Working together with Aperture, we would like to ask you, as global citizens, to consider the visual language that is necessary today to communicate a new political, social, and environmental consciousness. At the core of this call are the four freedoms that were outlined in a speech given by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1941. Aiming to allay the world’s fears of growing fascism, he called for freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.«

“With this call to action and resulting exhibition, we want to engage photographers everywhere to join us in subverting the prevailing nostalgia for a ‘simpler’ world and to develop a way of visualizing the four freedoms from a contemporary perspective. In particular, we are interested in exploring how freedom from fear is a powerful motivator on all sides of the political equation. What is freedom? What is fear? What is terror? Are we more free by isolating ourselves from unknown others or are we more free by being able to exercise and enjoy our basic human rights? How do we respond to and counter those ideas with alternative perspectives? How do our connections to each other enable us to become free?” —Eric Gottesman, Hank Willis Thomas, and Wyatt Gallery

Send us images that address or express what freedom looks like—or doesn’t looks like—today. Submit your work, and let your voice be heard.

This year, the sole entry requirement for entering the 2017 Aperture Summer Open is to be an Aperture Member. All Summer Open entrants must be current Aperture Members through April 6, 2017 (Student/Teacher/Senior: $50., Individual $75.)

UMass Amherst, Augusta Savage Gallery, International*/National Call for Entries: Home

UMass Amherst, Augusta Savage Gallery, International*/National Call for Entries: Home

Deadline August 1st, 2107

The Augusta Savage Gallery at UMass Amherst is currently accepting artist submissions of work that considers Home as the subject of their creations. A story must accompany the artwork. Tell that story, whether fictional or true, in 100 words or less. They request that artists only submit new work created specifically for this exhibition.

From their call: Home carries with it many meanings. It suggest many things. Home can trigger memories or spark anticipation. It sometimes reminds us of painful experiences, or offers some promise of freedom, or evokes terror of a future. For some, Home is connected to a place or moment in time that carries pleasurable memories. For others, it is a place to which, regrettably, they cannot nor will ever return.
 
Some have generational ties to home. They have witnessed the expulsion and dispersion of entire communities from their places of birth, and the rupturing of familial and cultural continuity. Some think of Home in ideological terms and are shocked and repulsed by politics and values in a nation that once felt safe, but now create tremendous anxiety. Still others have never been privy to the stability of solid ground beneath their feet, a home base, a sense of nationhood, or belonging. 
 
A spiritual leader once reminded his followers, “Everywhere you go, there you are.”  Here is yet another way of understanding Home – that there exists a place inside us that is familiar and safe, and which holds us strong and erect in dangerous circumstances. 
 
There are many ways to think about Home. Our Call For Submissions invites artists to consider Home as the subject of their creations. We encourage artists to be as focused and specific in their thinking and artwork as possible in order that this exhibition may have maximum impact.

*International artists (curently living and working outside the U.S.) will have .jpg images of artwork projected in the gallery during the exhibition.

The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center (VT), Call for Entries: SculptFest 2017

The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center (VT), Call for Entries: SculptFest 2017

Deadline: June 23th, 2017

The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center invites artists to submit proposals for SculptFest 2017, September 10 – October 23. The theme for this year’s outdoor exhibition is “The State of Hope” guest curated by artist Whitney Ramage.

In recent history hope has been the apex political rhetoric. What does it mean to us now? How can we resist mounting despair? Hope in dark times is more vital than hope in times of prosperity. Without it there can be no action. In times like these, artists have a responsibility to push forward.

By examining hope from all possible angles we will seek to gain forward momentum. One of art’s fundamental purposes is to reorient us in relation to the world, to each other and to ourselves. It is a method re-thinking the status quo. It is a research practice based on exploration and an opportunity to illuminate aspects of our society and by so doing alter our collective experience. Perhaps it can teach us new ways to hope. Now more than ever rethinking is key to our collective survival. Now more than ever we need artists to reorient us to our humanity.

Artists and artist teams are invited to submit proposals for sculpture, installation, video or performance to be exhibited on the historic grounds of the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in West Rutland, Vermont. Artists are encouraged to visit the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center website for more information about the history of the grounds as a former marble quarry, www.carvingstudio.org.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, International Call for Applicants: MIT Media Lab Disobedience Award

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, International Call for Applicants: MIT Media Lab Disobedience Award

Deadline: May 1st, 2017

For their call: The MIT Media Lab is accepting applications through May 1 for a no-strings-attached $250,000 Disobedience Award. This award will go to a person or group engaged in what they believe is an extraordinary example of disobedience for the benefit of society. What does this mean? Societies and institutions lean toward order and away from chaos. While necessary for functioning, structure can also stifle creativity, flexibility, and productive change–and ultimately, society’s health and sustainability. This is true from academia, to corporations, governments, the sciences, and our local communities. With this award, they honor work that impacts society in positive ways, and is consistent with a set of key principles. These principles include non-violence, creativity, courage, and taking responsibility for one’s actions. This disobedience is not limited to specific disciplines; examples include scientific research, civil rights, freedom of speech, human rights, and the freedom to innovate.

City of Seattle (WA), National Call for Applicants: Public Artist Roster

1551City of Seattle (WA), National Call for Applicants: Public Artist Roster

Deadline: April 12th, 2017, 11:00pm PST

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) is creating an artist roster of approximately 160 emerging, mid-career and established artists who will be pre-qualified for future art projects at city utility facilities, parks, street rights-of-way and other locations. This roster will be one method of selecting artists to develop temporary permanent, free-standing or site-integrated artwork projects in a variety of forms, sizes and complexities, outdoors and indoors, with budgets up to $175,000. This call is open to professional artists residing in the United States. To be eligible to apply, applicants must be practicing professional artists or artist teams residing in the United States.

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture commissions a variety of public artworks through its 1% for Art program. The public art program works with several city departments engaged in capital construction projects. With several projects launching through the city’s utilities, parks and transportation departments, this pre-qualified artist roster will streamline the selection process and will be used when appropriate. In addition to using the roster, for selection ARTS will continue to issue open and invitational calls for artists.

How will the roster be used?  The Artist Roster will be used as a pre-qualified pool to select an artist when a project’s requirements render it useful to rely on a roster: an expedited selection process, need for a specific skillset, or a curated opportunity.  Selection of an artist off the roster will be based on the appropriateness of the artist’s media and experience for a specific project requirements and the artist’s availability. We may occasionally ask for roster artists to provide a statement of interest for specific projects.

Once an artist has been selected for a project off the roster, they are not eligible for additional roster projects, but may continue to apply to open calls. Note there is no guarantee that artists on this roster will receive a commission.

When select public art commissions become available, staff will present artists’ qualifications to a stakeholder-based selection panel who will select candidates to interview or to commission for a proposal. In some cases, ARTS staff will contact roster artists for a project prior to being presented to a stakeholder-based selection panel. The selected artist will be commissioned for the project based on the interview or proposal and references.

Eligibility for other calls for artists?  Artists who are pre-qualified for the roster may apply to open calls issued by ARTS provided that they meet eligibility requirements. Artists included in the Artist Roster must apply separately to additional open calls issued by ARTS if they wish to be considered. Once an artist has been selected from the roster for a project, they are not eligible for additional roster projects, but may continue to apply to open calls.
