San Francisco Arts Commission (CA), National Request for Qualifications, Public Art Opportunity: 2020 Art on Market Street Kiosk Poster Series

Deadline: May 14th, 2019, 11:59pm PST

The theme for the 2020 series is Celebrating 50 Years of Gay Pride.  

Beginning as a celebration commemorating the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York, Gay Pride has been held in San Francisco every year since 1970. Market Street, in particular, has been the site of gay pride parades since 1972; as well as, the location of the candlelight vigil for Harvey Milk and George Moscone in 1978. For Celebrating 50 Years of Gay Pride, artists will have the opportunity to honor the diverse people, places, and events that makeup San Francisco’s rich queer culture.

Project Overview: The San Francisco Arts Commission invites artists and artist teams residing in the United States to submit qualifications for the 2020 Art on Market Street Kiosk Poster Series: Celebrating 50 Years of Gay Pride

Project Description: Every year since 1992, SFAC has commissioned new work by artists for the Art on Market Street Kiosk Poster Series. The Program selects three or four artists to create a new body of work that responds to a theme specific to San Francisco. Each poster series is on view for approximately three months, and consists of at least 6 unique images that are printed at 68 inches high by 47 ¼ inches wide, and installed in 18 bus kiosks on Market Street between 8th Street and the Embarcadero.

Budget: The total budget is $10,000 inclusive of the artist fee, poster designs, digital file preparation, and proofing. The budget does not include printing and installation which is managed and paid for by the Arts Commission. Finalists for the project will be paid an honorarium of $750 to develop their proposals.

International Call for Applicants: Breckenridge Creative Arts (CO) 2020 Artist-in-Residence, with stipend

International Call for Applicants: Breckenridge Creative Arts (CO) Artist-in-Residence, with stipend

Deadline: July 31st, 2019

Breckenridge Creative Arts (BCA) artist-in-residence program offers regional, national, and international artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way.

Visiting artists live and work for one to two months in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures nestled under majestic snow-capped peaks in cozy downtown Breckenridge. During their live/work residency, artists explore a place-based thematic narrative—whether that means interpreting our spectacular mountain setting, rich local history, or risk-taking spirit; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community.

BCA will reimburse artists up to $500 for travel, and artists are offered a weekly stipend of $200 to cover food, materials, and other expenses. BCA will also provide artists with a stipend of up to $500 for workshop instruction.

Artist expectations include: facilitating two weekly workshops (on campus), participating in monthly Second Saturdays, and planning and hosting a final presentation or event produced in collaboration with a local partner. Artists with teaching experience will be favored. Artists living in Summit County are not eligible for this residency. Only artists with a website or social media platform will be considered.

Local artists are invited to apply for a studio residency in the Fuqua Livery Stable for 4-8 weeks, where they will contribute to and benefit from a communal atmosphere that fosters creative practice, new relationships, and knowledge-sharing. In exchange for a private work station/storage area, a free BCA artist membership and unlimited use of all campus studios for independent work, artists must commit to hosting one weekly open studio and are required to participate in monthly Second Saturdays. When working in the studio, artists in residence are asked to keep Fuqua Livery Stable open to the public. Up to four artists will be selected for each season.

Exhibiting artists are curated artists who participate in BCA’s annual exhibition or festival programs, which include both indoor gallery spaces and outdoor installation sites. These artists may be eligible to receive housing on campus along with a negotiated artist fee. Exhibiting artists staying in the Tin Shop or Robert Whyte House are asked to host one artist talk or workshop during their stay, in addition to any exhibition-related obligations that have been contracted separately.

Co-op artists are local creative entrepreneurs who rent affordable space on the Arts District campus and host regular visiting hours in their studios for the public to observe their process. This is a year-long commitment and artists are able to choose from various rental options.

Website link to apply: http://www.breckcreate.org/opportunities/artist-residence-application/

About: Established in 2014, Breckenridge Creative Arts (BCA)—or BreckCreate for short—was developed by the Town of Breckenridge to support and promote arts, culture and creative experiences throughout Breckenridge. This multidisciplinary nonprofit organization is responsible for the successful management of a series of programs, properties and partnerships that collectively animate and populate a cultural corridor in the heart of downtown Breckenridge, Colorado. From quality performing and visual arts to the development of one of the region’s newest arts districts, Breckenridge Creative Arts is a transformative force for Breckenridge and the greater Summit County community.

Surface Design Association (NM), International Call for Entries, Soft Borders: 2019 SDA International Exhibition In Print

Surface Design Association (NM), International Call for Entries, Soft Borders: 2019 SDA International Exhibition In Print

Deadline: May 31st, 2019

Each year, the Surface Design Association (SDA) International Exhibition In Print showcases the breadth and depth of contemporary artists and designers working with or inspired by fiber art and/or textile-based materials, methods, and techniques. The work of selected artists are featured in the Fall 2019 issue of the Surface Design Journal. The Surface Design Journal is read by artists, gallery owners, curators, scholars, and enthusiasts nationally and internationally.

Goal: Borders are often thought of as unyielding divides between ideas, cultures, beliefs, actions, and interests. They can also be the elastic edge between disciplines (ex. art and science), methods of making (ex. 3-D printing and handmade), or physical characteristics (ex. frayed or neat edges). These are the dynamic areas where opposites meet and innovation is born. Borders can carry political weight, for example the “soft” borders between European Union countries, the historic iron curtain, or the United States/Mexico border. What are your visualizations and material reflections of borders?

Artists are encouraged to submit work of any size or format that demonstrates the use of fibers or textile-based media, including nontraditional materials and techniques. Surface Design Journal welcomes work that embraces traditional 2D and 3D forms, while also seeking work that challenges and expands the contemporary definitions of textile/fiber-based art and design such as: digital (design/animation), time-based (video/performance), conceptual, installation, land, book, sculptural, basketry, textile, wearables, fashion, interior design, product design, and craft-as-social-practice.

Artists working in all media are encouraged to apply.

Journal Editor Elizabeth Kozlowski and Co-editor Monika Auch will select work for inclusion in a comprehensive print and digital edition of the Surface Design Journal. The publication will include full and detailed images as well as artist statements and juror reflections addressing the context of the work in the exhibition and its place within the evolution of broader trends in contemporary textile/fiber-based arts.

Artists whose work is selected will receive one complimentary print copy of the Surface Design Journal.

This exhibition is open to all artists, with discounted entry fee offered to SDA members. Artists may enter up to three artworks. 2D and 3D works are eligible, as is documentation of time-based media, performance, or conceptual work. Only photographic documentation of work will be considered. Work must have been completed since January 1st, 2017. Work executed under classroom/educational guidance or supervision is not eligible.

Website link for more information and to apply: https://www.surfacedesign.org/events-exhibits/exhibits/soft-borders/

Link to apply via CaFE: https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=6318

About: Surface Design Association’s (SDA) mission since 1977 is to promote awareness and appreciation of textile-inspired art and design through member-supported benefits including publications, exhibitions, and conferences. SDA provides a platform for the exchange of ideas, methods, and materials. The SDA community is expansive: from makers and artists to academics and enthusiasts. We celebrate their successes and failures as they work toward sustaining traditional techniques or adapting production strategies in radical new ways, such as realizing fiber arts as activism or performance. The shared affinity of our community is a sincere love of textile media and fiber arts.

University of Maryland, Stamp Gallery, Call for Artists: Radical Threads

University of Maryland, Stamp Gallery, Call for Artists: Radical Threads

Deadline: June 10th, 2019

From their call: In this exhibition the curator is seeking works that would traditionally be considered domestically craft-based in nature. This can refer to embroidery, cross stitch, knitting, quilting, and other art forms that have typically been practiced by women in the home. This exhibition aims to highlight and elevate “women’s work” to the level of fine art, while also questioning the omission of women from this field both historically and in the modern era. It will consider questions such as: What makes certain art forms be seen as inherently feminine? How have patriarchy and misogyny played a role in the ways in which craft-based mediums and work is viewed? How can artists use historically domestic art practices as vessels for resistance and change?

The curator will select a small group of artists whose work she feels critically and creatively engages the exhibition concept outlined above to show their work at the Stamp Gallery, a contemporary art space located in the University of Maryland-College Park’s Adele H. Stamp Student Union — Center for Campus Life. Any existing works must have been completed within the last 5-10 years to be considered.

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: stampgallery@umd.edu, CC : eallen14@terpmail.umd.edu

Artists are responsible for delivering finished work to the Stamp Gallery between July 11th – July 17th and for picking up their work from the Stamp Gallery no earlier than the close of the exhibition on August 31st, 2019 and no later than September 7th, 2019.

Website: https://thestamp.umd.edu

About: The Stamp Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists.

This is a one time Bursary, where three recipients will be selected in June and granted sums of either $10,000, $7000, $3000, awarded by an esteemed panel of creative industry judges.

International Call for Proposals: Project Anywhere 2019 Global Exhibition Program

International Call for Proposals: Project Anywhere 2019 Global Exhibition Program

Proposal guidelines deadline: September 1st, 2019

From their call: Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition program dedicated to art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on a dedicated website, Project Anywhere is neither an online exhibition nor a journal.It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic projects located outside traditional exhibition circuits. It is perhaps best imagined as an exhibition comprising the entire globe in which the role of curator is replaced with a blind evaluation system.

All proposals submitted to Project Anywhere are comprehensively reviewed by 4 artist academics of international standing. Re-submitted “provisionally accepted” proposals are then reviewed by our International Editorial Committee.

Project Anywhere’s evaluation criteria stress that all proposals must make a clear and compelling case for a proposed project’s capacity to contribute to knowledge in an identified field of creative practice. Accordingly, it is expected that proposals identify related artistic precedents and relevant literature. Projects can be highly speculative or discursive in nature and can extend or contradict existing methodologies.

Your proposal should include the following:
1.) Title of proposed project
2.) Location(s), date(s) and duration (if known) for proposed project. This information can be updated later.
3.) A detailed project proposal clearly stating the project’s potential for creating new knowledge (please refer to our evaluation criteria)
4.) Images, audio/visual materials and (non-attributable) links can be included where appropriate

NB: To be eligible for blind peer evaluation, it is imperative that all name and contact details are removed from the proposal document (and all accompanying materials). Contact details should be included in the body of the email only.

At the cessation of Project Anywhere’s annual Global Exhibition Program, all hosted projects are eligible to present at our biennial conference Anywhere and Elsewhere at Parsons Fine Art in New York City. This biennial conference event features presentations from artists that have successfully navigated blind peer evaluation through Project Anywhere, together with a series of invited presentations from artists, scholars, curators and writers actively engaged with art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location specificity. Following the biennial conference, all presenters are invited to contribute to our innovative biennial publication Anywhere. This publication features contributions ranging from scholarly texts to photo essays to annotated diagrams and graphic illustrations (or indeed any page-based representation of projects typically located elsewhere in space and time). Considered together, Project AnywhereAnywhere and Elsewhere and Anywhere reveal distinctive reflective moments in the process from conception through production to dissemination in artistic research beyond traditional exhibition circuits.

Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists and researchers working anywhere in the world and is designed to suit artists seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for artistic research. Project Anywhere does not provide funding nor expect exclusivity. It also welcomes collaborative or curatorial projects or projects hosted by other institutions.

Please send proposals (as an “unattributed” attachment) to projectanywhere@gmail.com

ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation (IL), International Open Call for Artists, Frayed: Fiber Beyond Craft

ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation (IL), International Open Call for Artists, Frayed: Fiber Beyond Craft

Deadline: May 11th, 2019, 11:59pm CST

From their call: Fiber works — from embroidery, stitching and sewing, to weaving and felting— have, throughout history, been relegated to the genre of craft and to ‘women’s work.’ Since the late sixties and early seventies, however, the women’s movement has broken through that pigeonhole, as many talented artists turned to Fiber as a form of expression that extended way beyond Craft. As ARC calls for work that uses Fiber as a seminal aspect of expression, we look to further “fray” the boundaries of this evocative medium.

With arms open, we welcome artists of all gender orientations to apply to the juried show entitled “FRAYED: Fiber Beyond Craft”

Media & Eligibility: Original works created within the last 5 years. All mediums and materials will be considered in addition to video and performance based arts. No projections or media installations will be accepted for this show due to space limitations. Open to all artists, national and international.

Juror: Jade Yumang’s work primarily focuses on the concept of queer form through sculptural abstraction, installation, and performance. He received his MFA at Parsons School of Design with Departmental Honors (2012) and his BFA Honors in University of British Columbia as the top graduate (2008). He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Entry fee: $40 for one to three images. $10 for each additional image (lower charge for students) If paying by check, it must be received prior to jurying.

Website link for more detailed information and to apply: https://arcgallery.wufoo.com/forms/frayed-fiber-beyond-craft-at-arc-gallery-chicago/

Website: http://www.arcgallery.org/news-events/

About: ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a non-profit, woman-run cooperative gallery dedicated to providing alternative space exhibition opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery system.
