Appel aux artistes de la ville de Québec, de la province de Québec et du Canada

À l’occasion de mon arrivée au poste de directrice artistique d’Avatar*(Ville de Québec), je souhaiterais rencontrer la communauté artistique la plus large possible concernée par le domaine des arts audio et électronique et par le mandat d’Avatar (lenomdelachose.org) :

Les pratiques au croisement des arts sonores électroniques et de… la danse, la poésie, l’architecture, l’environnement, la sculpture… sont les bienvenues. Cette liste n’est pas limitative.

À défaut de pouvoir vous rencontrer, pour des raisons spatio-temporelles, j’accepterais toute documentation me permettant de prendre connaissance et d’avoir une idée de votre travail : site internet, documentation électronique, dossier papier/dvd/cd présentant un maximum de 4 oeuvres (avec date, format, medium, auteurs), représentant le mieux l’esprit de votre recherche et de votre production.
Cependant, les artistes résidant à Québec et dans sa region peuvent me contacter pour une rencontre dans leurs espaces de travail ou à Avatar.

Résidences 2010-2011 / Le Lobe
Lieu : Chicoutimi (Québec) Canada

Le Lobe consacre désormais sa programmation de résidences principalement aux artistes en mi-carrière en quête de décrochage, de concentration et… de défi.
On s’attend de vous que vous restiez vous-même ? Pas nous.
Entendons nous : Le Lobe soupçonne qu’après plusieurs années d’expérience, de présence et de reconnaissance, les artistes subissent souvent des pressions contraignantes de la part du milieu artistique. Ces pressions proviennent d’attentes reliées à la pratique, à l’esthétique, au médium ainsi qu’au contenu que vous avez su développer au fil des ans. Cela empêche parfois d’explorer ailleurs. Au Lobe, nous reconnaissons l’importance de la liberté et de la permission dans le plaisir du développement de la création. Nous pouvons répondre à ce besoin.
Le Lobe avoue son penchant pour l’ailleurs, les pratiques casse-gueules, la contre-pratique et les pratiques à venir.
L’ailleurs : c’est lorsque vous souhaitez faire un projet depuis cinq ans et que ça ne s’insère pas dans votre démarche habituelle. Les pratiques casse-gueules : c’est lorsque vous n’auriez jamais osé faire cela dans
votre milieu. La contre-pratique : c’est lorsque vous ne maîtrisez pas du tout ce que vous vous apprêtez à faire et que, vraiment, personne ne croyait que vous le feriez. Les pratiques à venir : c’est…
Se réinventer au Lobe
Votre dossier doit contenir :
• Un curriculum vitae
• Un texte de prétention artistique
• Une piste de projet de résidence, un besoin, un défi…
• Un dossier d’images
Nos attentes sont :
• L’étonnement suscité par votre projet…
• La nécessité d’une résidence au Lobe
• L’urgence du défi

Invitation à
LA MINUTE VIDÉO FOLIE/CULTURE

Folie/Culture propose à tous — artistes reconnus ou non, membres, proches et intervenants du milieu social — de s’investir dans une expérience de réflexion particulière en réalisant une minute vidéo. Pour cette édition 2010 de La minute vidéo Folie/Culture, nous vous proposons la thématique du « Loser ».

Le thème du loser aborde la question des conceptions sociales de la réussite dans un monde où cette dernière n’équivaut qu’à l’accumulation de richesses et où le discours économique domine tous les discours. Tous ceux qui ne se fondent pas dans le moule tels que les fous, les pauvres, les marginaux sont considérés comme des super losers d’un système qui n’a aucune pitié pour ceux qui « ratent » leur vie. Et si le loser n’était qu’une tendance extrême de la liberté ?

Les minutes sélectionnées seront projetées à l’occasion d’une soirée spéciale au cours de l’année 2010 dans un espace public.

Pour participer, vous devez produire une vidéo — fiction, documentaire, vidéo d’art — en un plan-séquence d’une minute en continu.

Attention :
Aucun montage d’image ou de son n’est permis,
seule la musique originale est acceptée.

Formats : Mini-DV, CD ou DVD data
(fichier .mov ou .avi non compressé)

Date limite de dépôt :
28 février 2010

Faites-nous parvenir votre vidéo accompagnée de vos coordonnées (prénom, nom, adresse complète, numéro de téléphone et adresse électronique) par la poste à l’adresse suivante :

La Minute vidéo Folie/Culture
281, rue De Saint-Vallier Est

Call for Submissions
Southern Alberta Art Gallery Public Art Commission

The City of Lethbridge is inviting artists to participate in a three stage public art competition to create and install a public art work on site at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery.

The Southern Alberta Art Gallery has occupied a city-owned building since the first exhibition in 1976. A dedicated staff sustains and fuels the gallery’s mandate: to foster the work of contemporary artists who challenge boundaries, encourage broad public engagement and promote awareness and exploration of artistic expression. The Southern Alberta Art Gallery’s work extends to local, national and international communities.

Artists from around the world, across the country and our own hometown present a comprehensive range of ideas, subject matter and media within the context of contemporary art. The gallery also offers a wide array of educational and public programming including children and teen art classes, professional development workshops for artists, and programs targeted toward seniors and the business community.

In March 2009 the Southern Alberta Art Gallery broke ground on a major renovation intended to vastly improve public spaces while providing much needed mechanical, technical and aesthetic upgrades. In conjunction with the current renovations, the City of Lethbridge is pleased to oversee the planning, development and installation of a substantial public art project. The winning commission will be announced as part of the celebrations taking place during the grand re-opening of the gallery in September 2010.

The site for the commission encompasses a glazed alcove at the Northeast corner of the main gallery. Sealed off from the interior, this 5’ x 10’8” x 10’ space is floor to ceiling glass on two sides that extend into Galt Gardens, a formal, manicured downtown parkland. The alcove will be a secure space with power available. The alcove may provide a site of dialogue with elements that may also be installed in (or in relation to) the immediate and surrounding areas within Galt Gardens.

Total budget for the Southern Alberta Art Gallery project, inclusive of all expenses including GST, is $180,000.00. Proposal submission deadline is March 1, 2010.

Complete project details and submission requirements are available by contacting:

Super Channel: Call to Emerging Screenwriters, Deadline January 15
Super Channel’s Super Catalyst Emerging Screenwriting Award – Jan 15
Deadline Jan 15, 2010
Super Catalyst Emerging Screenwriter Award A writer development program sponsored by Super Channel

Super Channel is committed to developing Canadian talent, so we are proud to announce that we are launching a program for unproduced feature film screenwriters. This is a great opportunity for emerging screenwriters to develop their projects and their skills with one-on-one professional guidance, and to get industry attention for their work. Four winning scripts will be chosen from entries received across Canada. Each of the winning screenplays will receive a full story editing process with one of Super Channel’s Creative Development Representatives. You will go through a four month story editing process that will result in a new draft and a polish of your script, moving your project one step closer to getting optioned and produced! When the four winning screenplays have each completed the story editing process, one national winner will be chosen and will receive a table read of their screenplay with industry influencers present in the audience. In addition, all winners will be publicized on our website and in our Super Catalyst newsletter.

If you are an unproduced feature film writer with an unoptioned screenplay, and if you have the energy and time to commit to the development of your script and your career, let us know! We want to hear from you, so if you’d like to enter, please fill out the application form on the next page, and upload it by clicking on the province in which you live on the Filmmaker’s page of our website.

About Super Channel
Super Channel is Canada’s only national pay television network, consisting of two new HD channels, four new SD channels, and Super Channel On Demand.

Super Channel’s vision is to expand the Canadian premium TV experience by offering a broad range of fresh, entertaining movies, series and live events. Super Channel is owned by Allarco Entertainment 2008 Inc., an Edmonton-based media company.

Super Channel is currently available on Bell TV, Shaw Direct, Rogers PersonalTV, Shaw Cable, Cogeco Cable, Access Communications, Bell Aliant TV, Mountain Cablevision, Source Cable, SaskTel, MTS, Novus, EastLink, Delta Cable/Coast Cable, TELUS and other regional providers.

Of course, additional creative materials and additional drafts will likely be written by you during the process, and your story editor will review them all.

N.B. You will retain all rights to your screenplay, and the story editor will waive all moral rights in and to the script.

Application materials:
It’s pretty simple. All we need to receive from you is this form, your screenplay and a one page synopsis that includes the ending.

Submission procedure:
To submit your project, please go to the filmmaker’s page of our website, click on the province or territory in which you live, and follow the directions to upload your script, synopsis and this form. Please write ‘Super Catalyst’ in the subject line of your email.

Call for Submissions: Artists Survey: The Greenbelt

Gallery 1313 and the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation are seeking interest in showcasing work of visual artists in an exhibition focussed on the Greenbelt. We are looking for artists to share their ideas of what the Greenbelt means to them and how its green spaces and agricultural lands have impacted them. We are specifically seeking artists who have lived in, spent time in and been strongly impacted by Ontario’s Greenbelt as a source of inspiration.

The Theme
We wish to explore the notion of nature (Greenbelt) which is on the edge of an urban landscape, and how it shapes our identity as Ontarians. The exhibits will explore how the Greenbelt calls to us, nurtures us, soothes us and challenges us.

We are looking for meaningful, thought-provoking dialogue on how the Greenbelt connects the urban, the rural, the city and nature.

About the Greenbelt
Ontario’s Greenbelt is a world-leading law that preserves prime farmland and green spaces around the Greater Golden Horseshoe. It gives us clean water and healthy local food. It’s bigger than P.E.I. and, in fact, is the largest Greenbelt in the world.

It saves Ontario taxpayers $2.6 billion per year in environmental services like water filtration and waste treatment. And it provides $5.4 billion to Ontario’s economy through farming and its food production.

For more information, visit www.greenbelt.ca.

Exhibit – parameters and conditions
We invite artists from inside and outside the Greenbelt to participate. We look forward to seeing your submissions that include painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture, fabric and soft sculpture, multi-media, etc.

The works exhibited will be selected by Patrick Macaulay , Head of Visual Arts at Harbourfront Centre and Phil Anderson , Director , Gallery 1313.

The exhibition will take place over a two-month period, from February 16 – March 30, 2010. All artwork will be returned to the artists after the exhibition is complete. Artist fees will be paid to selected exhibiting artists .

Enter a submission by January 6, 2010 to director [arobas] g1313 [point] org , attention Phil Anderson, Gallery Director, by mail or in person to Gallery 1313, 1313A Queen Street West, Toronto, Ontario, M6K 1L8

In your submission, please include:

* Digital images of your work , jpegs no larger than 400 kb-700 kb
* Your current CV
* An Artist Statement (max. 250 words, relating your piece to the exhibition parameters)
* Contact Information (address, phone number, and e-mail)

Exhibition/Event – Stones of Menace, London
Stones of Menace
Deadline: 30 January, 2010
The austere architecture of Brutalism is often vilified as producing social neglect rather than the vibrant community life envisioned by its architects.
Art, on the contrary, is mostly seen as a potent tool to for social cohesion.
In this show we would like to explore polemical perspectives on architecture and art and open up a debate on the role of culture as a source of conflict and criticism.
We are looking for work that reflects on the relationship between art/architecture and its social/physical context or on issues around creative expressions of social discontent. Work can include video, performance, 2D and 3D work, presentations/lectures.

Submission format:

The Rijksakademie has fifty-five studios. Annually, approximately half of these become available for new residents. In 2009, twenty-three artists were selected for a residency out of 1900 applications from all over the world. Resident artists have usually successfully completed their (art) studies and have already worked independently as artists for three to five years prior to their application. Experience shows that a residency at the Rijksakademie at this stage of their careers has the greatest impact.

One is initially admitted for a work period of one year (January to December). Whether a second year is considered worthwhile, is decided in mutual consultation.

The selection procedure consists of a number of rounds. Demonstrable artistic quality and development potential are the decisive factors here. Following the first selection rounds in April/May, a number of candidates are invited for an interview in May/June at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. The successful candidates are announced at the beginning of July.

Application for the 2011 residency

One can apply for the coming residency (starting in January 2011) between December 1, 2009 and February 1, 2010. Note that your complete application has to be with us by February 1, 2010. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
