Deadline: May 8th, 2017

The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) invites West Coast artists to submit proposals for site-specific, immersive, large-scale installations at the ICA. 

In the Silicon Valley, technologists use the term “sandbox” as a figurative place to experiment with new code or ideas.

Not limited to media, the program encourages site responsive, ambitious, architectural and large-scale works.
 
The ICA will award an artist/artist team with an honorarium (ranging from $1,500- $5,000) to design, create and complete an installation project. The honorarium can be used towards project expenses including materials, supplies, transit of artwork (both ways), travel, per diem, and artist fee. The ICA will additionally support the project with access to a team of professional preparators during install and de-install, provide marketing for project and host an exhibition opening.

The ICA will present a site-specific installation per season (approximately four site-specific installations/year) and each installation will be featured for approximately 3 months. This Call for Installation Proposals is for the 2018 and 2019 exhibition schedule.

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

Innovate_and_Investigate_folds-Crops_A_2011_03

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

Deadline: May 17th, 2017 11:59pm EST

From their call:  Abstraction in art and photography is defined as the use of a visual language of color, shape, form, and line to create an image that may exist with an independence from visual references in the real world.

The concept of abstract art goes back as far as Plato, who stated “Straight lines and circles are not only beautiful, but eternally beautiful”. While abstract art itself may have existed since before recorded time, it did not become formalized until the modern era. As the technology of photography paralleled the trends in art, so abstraction became part of the photographic idiom. Almost everyone who’s used a camera seriously has produced an abstract image, if only by accident.

For this exhibition, we’re seeking photos in which color, form, design, and shape take the place of a representation of reality. Think of peeling paint, ripples on water, pat-terns in concrete or asphalt. This is an opportunity to let your imagination off its leash.

Juror: Blue Mitchell is an independent publisher, curator, educator, and photographer. Based in Portland, OR, he has been involved with many facets of the photographic arts. He is the founder of One Twelve Publishing which originates photography based pro-jects in both print and online gallery formats. One Twelve published their first monograph, a book of large-format photography.

 Entry fee.

Ox-Bow (IL), International Call for Applicants: Fully-Funded 2017 Fall Residency for Artists or Writers

Deadline: May 1st, 2017, midnight CST

Two, three, and five week residencies, September 3rd – October 7th, 2017

From their call: Fall residents are given the time, solitude, and focus often unavailable to so many working artists and writers. Each fall between 25 and 30 artists participate in the residency creating a diverse community of engaged peers. At Ox-Bow, artists can enjoy 24-hour access to their studios, and an inspirational setting, free from the expectations of commercial and academic demands. During the fall season, Artists in Residence have the opportunity to work in studios not available during the summer session. The fall is an ideal time for writers to apply as there are studios dedicated specifically to them. It’s also a great time to propose group or collaborative work. The residency provides:

  • Studio (access to ceramic, printmaking, and painting studios—if you would like access these facilities make sure this is clearly stated in your application)
  • Private room (shared bathrooms and showers)
  • Meals (three meals a day)
  • A diverse community of engaged artists
  • Opportunities to share work: slide presentations and/or readings

We are happy to announce that in 2016 Ox-Bow furthered our commitment to the needs of artists by no longer charging fees for the residency program (including application, room & board, and residency fees). All accepted residents continue to be fully funded. Artists may apply for additional stipends to help pay for the cost of travel, supplies, and time away from work.

About: The Ox-Bow School of Art was founded by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago faculty in 1910.  Ox-Bow’s serene natural environment offered its founders the opportunity for intense focus and a community of support on its secluded 115 acres, located approximately 150 miles from Chicago near the resort town of Saugatuck, Michigan. This tradition continues today. Every summer, over 500 artists travel to the Ox-Bow campus to study, teach, and make art.
