VisArts (MD), International Call for New Media, Film and Video Art: Frame & Frequency 3, Vol. 2

VisArts (MD), International Call for New Media, Film and Video Art: Frame & Frequency 3, Vol. 2

Deadline to apply: April 7th, 2017

From their call: Video art today plays a key role in contemporary art practice. However, it differs from other art mediums specifically by its technicality, its ephemeral and perhaps at times intangible nature, as well as its mutability and adaptability in terms of the aesthetic processes within the medium.

While video art is a relatively recent development in art history, it allows for a unique and wholly different experience from other mediums such as painting and sculpture, etc. The durational nature of video art requires a longer commitment of time on the part of the viewer in order to render an aesthetic judgment, but hopefully also a more immersive experience as well.

This exhibition presents a diverse group of artists representing multi-generational and cultural backgrounds, nationalities and personal histories, while demonstrating the artists’ impressive command of video and new media technologies.

Frame & Frequency 3 is an ongoing International Video Art Exchange program that will screen concurrently in Rockville, Maryland at VisArts and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bogota, Colombia (South America). It will highlight the work of twelve international artists from Bogotá to Medellín, Colombia and from Pakistan to Sweden as well as artists from across North America, whose new media, experimental film and video works explore contemporary visual culture, and presents an intimate panorama of the variety and breadth of video art in artistic practice today – including various themes such as appropriation, digital erasure and camouflage, identity politics, climate change, as well formal investigations of video as a medium.

To apply and for more detailed information: https://www.visartsatrockville.org/more/event/frame-frequency-3/

About: VisArts is an independent non-profit art center located in the heart of Rockville Town Square, a thriving gathering place for the local community. VisArts presents exhibitions of contemporary emerging and established artists in four galleries, an Emerging Curator Program, a Studio Artist Program, and an Art Education Program making it an active and important presence in the greater metropolitan arts community. Rockville offers easy access to public transit to Washington, D.C. via the Red Line Metro, an excellent bus system, bike trails, and parking.

Clay Art Center (NY), National Call for Entries: Me, Myself, and I

Clay Art Center (NY), National Call for Entries:  Me, Myself, and I

Deadline: September 22nd, 2017

The 2018 gallery year will feature 4 Degrees of Separation, a series of four exhibitions featuring artists whose works examine the intricacies of maneuvering life, lifestyles and living within a global society with its political and social ramifications. The first exhibition is titled Me, Myself and I and will be followed by THEM, US  and ALL. CAC is committed to exhibiting emerging, mid-career, and established artists, as it seeks to become a platform for the field to express potent ideas and  relevant topics of our time.

Me, Myself and I will be the opening exhibition of the Clay Art Center’s gallery and will start the year’s themed exhibitions. This open juried show invites artists to submit vessel based work that explore issues surrounding identity. Artists are asked to think about such passionate issues such as who we are and how do we see ourselves within the context of society, family, relationships, and most importantly within our own skin? What role does culture, lineage, inheritance, and other characteristics of personality and sub-personalities play in how we see ourselves and define who we are?

This exhibit seeks submissions from artists who use their vessel-based art to explore concepts around self, experiences, and the triumphs and challenges faced either in the daily tasks of living or one’s place in society. This national call for entries will be juried by Kathy King, a renowned artist and educator whose own work reflects the very core theme of the show. As guest juror, she has invited kindred artists Mark Burns, Cheyenne Rudolph, Beth Lo, and Matt Nolen who also use their art to reflect identity and self-awareness.

Eligibility: Any artist in the United States over the age of 18. Works presented must be available and for sale at time of show. Primary medium must be in clay.

Juror:  Kathy King is currently a studio artist in the Boston area and is an Instructor and the Director of Education at the Ceramics Program – Office for the Arts at Harvard in Allston, MA and is a Visiting Faculty at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She has given workshops and lectures at over fifty colleges, schools and art centers throughout the USA.

Bilpin International Ground for Creative Initiatives (AU), International Call for Applicants: BigCi Environmental Awards 2017

Bilpin International Ground for Creative Initiatives (AU), International Call for Applicants: BigCi Environmental Awards 2017

Deadline April 1st, 2017

Australian and International Artists from various fields – visual art, installation, multimedia, performance, literature, music, photography, film making, curating – are invited to submit entries for the BigCi Environmental Awards 2017.

The two winning artists will each receive (4) free weeks of BigCi residency and AUD$2,000 spending money. In addition to that, up to AUD$2,000 ARTFLIGHT travel subsidy will be shared between the two winners. There is no entry fee.

Your submission must show how you will respond to the environment around BigCi.  BigCi is located only 1.5 hours drive from Sydney, Australia’s biggest city, yet it is in a dramatically different world – on the edge of the Wollemi National Park in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains. This is an area of stunning scenic beauty, with its own unique flora, fauna and geomorphology.

For your project during the BigCi residency, you can choose to deal with particular environmental or natural science issues, explore ideas and concepts related to nature or use this opportunity to creatively respond to the unique wilderness on our doorstep.

The focus of the Award is on the environment, but this is open to a wide range of interpretations, allowing you to work on issues that are of most interest to you and fit best with your artistic practice.
As a winner of the award, you will have an opportunity to explore the Wollemi, the Blue Mountains and the Gardens of Stone National Parks on guided walks and will be given research assistance relevant to your project.
At the end of the residency, the award winners will present their work at BigCi Open Day.

Each winner will receive AUD$2,000 spending money that can be used at artist’s discretion. The AUD$2,000 is available only to the artists who complete all 4 weeks of the residency. This amount will be paid as follows: AUD$500 on arrival to BigCi, AUD$1000 at the end of week 2 (middle of the residency), and AUD$500 at the end of the residency. Any costs associated with damage, extraordinary cleaning or incomplete de-installation will be deducted from that amount. ARTFLIGHT will provide up to AUD$2,000 in subsidies for selected artists towards costs of air travel to Sydney for their residency. To be eligible, artist must be living interstate (outside of NSW) or overseas and indicate on the application form their departure and return airport location.
The subsidy amount for each artist will depend on the artist’s travel distance and will be determined by the ARTFLIGHT Selection Panel. The panel’s decision is final. The subsidy will be provided at the beginning of the BigCi Environmental Award Residency upon receipt of the flight ticket.

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.
