Orange Coast College (CA), Call For Proposals: One-Person Photography Exhibitions, 2019/2020 academic year

Deadline: April 15th, 2019

Starting September 2019: Six Proposals will be selected

Exhibitions start September of 2019 and run through out the 2019-2020 academic year. We are looking for six one person exhibitions of emerging contemporary photographers. The School of Photography at Orange Coast College is one of the largest in California. Our audience are the students and the larger Los Angeles and Orange County photographic and fine art communities. There is no fee to apply.

Exhibitions tend to be about 22″x17″ sized Prints. Gallery specifications will be supplied upon selection. To keep exhibition cost to a minimum we can install a show of just prints or matted prints. Framed art is not encouraged due to the shipping cost. The artist pays for shipping to OCC and OCC pays for shipping and insurance back to artist. A $250. honorarium is given to the artist after the conclusion of the exhibition.

Eligibility: We are looking for six one person exhibitions of emerging contemporary photographers.

Considerations: Framed work is not encouraged. Some accommodations can be made for some thin framed work, but it tends to be too expensive to ship given the limited honorarium.

To apply: Proposals can be PDFs e-mailed or links from wetransfer.com sent to The Selection Committee, photo.gallery.occ@gmail.com

The Gallery Selection Committee will announce status of your submission after May 16th, 2019

University of Maryland, Stamp Gallery, Call for Artists: UN/Sustainable

University of Maryland, Stamp Gallery, Call for Artists: UN/Sustainable

Deadline: April 1st, 2019

From their call: In recent years there has been a resurgence of concern about sustainability as the world confronts and reacts to the ramifications of decisions, past and present. The impending environmental realities of the future give birth to revolutionary conversation and oftentimes protest. Artists sit at the forefront of these movements, using their stories to open the eyes of viewers and reflect upon their own relationships to the physical world. A lack of concern for the earth, and more widely the cultures and peoples that so heavily rely on nature, reflects larger structures of power at play and forces questions about our collective priorities.

UN/Sustainable will examine these priorities through contemporary works that critically interact in bold and creative ways with the artist’s experience of the physical world and its future. The exhibition will feature a range of media and will seek to include art that asks: What is the role of sustainability in the art world? What is an artist’s responsibility to the environment in art creation? In documentation? In protest? Can art play a role in sustaining the earth or is it merely reflection on the issues?  How do culture and larger power structures affect environmental action and opinion? Are our ways of existing sustainable?

Submitted work may focus on concerns specific to the United States as well as be historically situated or centered on other cultures and regions. The works will reach a wide range of patrons, including but not limited to students and are thus encouraged to provoke dialogue and new ways of thinking. Selected artwork will be exhibited in Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.

Submission Guidelines:
Applicants must submit:
-Artist’s Statement about specific works being submitted
-Link to artist’s website (if applicable)
-Proposed works with title and short description (up to 200 words), year of production, and medium)
-Digital documentation of work
-5-10 images/files (JPEG 72 dpi), video/audio clips should be shared as a
link to a streaming site (with password information as necessary)

PLEASE SUBMIT TO: stampgallery@umd.edu

Website: https://thestamp.umd.edu/stamp_gallery

Artists are responsible for delivering finished work to the Stamp Gallery by May 20th, 2019 and for picking up their work from the Stamp Gallery no earlier than the close of the exhibition in July 2019 and no later than August 5th, 2019.

About: The Stamp Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.

Flux Factory and the NYC Cultural Affairs Disability Forward Fund, Open Call for Entries: Talk Back

Flux Factory and the NYC Cultural Affairs Disability Forward Fund, Open Call for Entries: Talk Back

Deadline: March 18th, 2019, 11:59pm EST

From their call: FLUX FACTORY is thrilled to announce TALK BACK, Flux Factory’s first open call and exhibition specifically for artists and organizers with disabilities.

TALK BACK seeks to center the lives and leadership of disabled artists and asserts that deep-rooted cultural changes must be made within the art world to become more inclusive and accessible. TALK BACK believes that disability must be included in conversations about diversity. One part of affecting change in the art world is by placing disabled artists in positions of influence within the arts to influence change from within.

TALK BACK focuses on how contemporary artists with disabilities are presenting their work and invites disabled artists to submit work that dismantles systems of ableism, either overtly or quietly. How do we examine, interrogate, and resist ableist and classists systems inside the art world? How can we employ the art world to examine social and cultural systems that surround disability outside the art world?

TALK BACK imagines a reality yet to exist, shifts able-normativity assumptions that every body is able-bodied, illuminates non-binary futures from able to disabled and debunks disability and “heroism”. TALK BACK envisions and celebrates joy, radical care, sovereign bodies, community building, non-verbal and alternative forms of communication. TALK BACK disrupts through quiet protest, individual, overt and mass protest that includes multiple ways of showing up. TALK BACK works within and against capitalistism, classism and medical ableism to redefine value, productivity and worth. TALK BACK makes room for criticism, restoration liberation, coming out, ownership of one’s mind and body, access demands, intersectionality and utopias to offer multiple entry points to TALK BACK.

TALK BACK invites proposals for workshops, performances, gatherings, walks, spoken word, screenings, visual arts, video, sound works, DIY, panels, grassroots, poetry, books, installations, zines, artist talks, performance lectures, discussions, events, collaborations with your caregiver, allies, advocates, support and service animals. Please know that TALK BACK is an an open call for artists and organizers with disabilities.

Note: Participants will receive a small honorarium for their work and limited access to Materials for the Arts.

Deadline: April 1st, 2019, 11:59pm MDT

From their call: Through our open call for applications, the Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) seeks artworks, creative research, and innovative actions that consider what vitality, prosperity, and sustainability might look like beyond profit to envision new systems for “making a living” that elevate all of humanity and infuse our world with freedom, compassion, and harmony; and that reflect the profoundly generative acts of labor.

  3. How can we creatively envision and enact bold new models of labor, distinct from dominant global reliance on wages, commodities, and privatized production, and which instead embrace radically humane, inclusive, and collaborative efforts.

Eligibility

  • SFAI welcomes Local, National, and International applicants of all backgrounds.
  • Applicants must be 25 years and older.
  • SFAI accepts applications from Individuals, Collaborations, and Families.

apexart (NY), International Open Call for Exhibition Proposals 2019 – 2020

apex

apexart (NY), International Open Call for Exhibition Proposals 2019 – 2020

Deadlines: March 1st, 2019

apexart’s International Open Call is soliciting exhibition proposals from February 1st -March 1st, 2019. The four proposals with the highest scores will be presented by the organizers in the countries specified as part of apexart’s 2019 – 2020 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit a proposal online for any international (or domestic) location outside of New York City and its metropolitan area.

The submission process: Proposals should describe compact, focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and should be submitted in English.

The selection process: Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowdsourced voting system utilizes many jurors to individually review a small subset of proposals. An international jury composed of 300+ individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds rate the proposals based on interest, content, and the organizers’ ability to communicate their ideas. To make the system as fair as possible, proposals are anonymous and randomized for each juror, which ensures that each submission receives the same consideration. apexart does not influence the decisions of the jury in any way.

The results: The organizers/curators of the four highest-ranked proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of up to USD 11,000 and will work closely with the apexart team to turn their ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition organizers are expected and challenged to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into strong, focused, noteworthy, and relevant exhibitions.

Budget: apexart has increased the budget substantially to $10,000 for each Open Call exhibition and related programming. Each organizer must work within apexart’s budget to cover expenses including curator travel, artwork shipping, artist and public program participant honorariums, equipment, installation, and venue fees with $8,000 of the budget. Of the $10,000, the organizer receives up to a $2,000 honorarium for coordinating the project and writing the exhibition brochure essay. For exhibitions outside NYC, apexart will match up to $1,000 for a location rental if necessary.
