Skool : Expérience de programmation d’été au Centre des arts actuels Skol (Montréal)

Le programme d’été du Centre des arts actuels Skol offre une tranche de programmation de 6 semaines à l’été 2009, à une équipe administrative temporaire. Ce programme s’adresse aux étudiants à temps plein de niveau universitaire âgés de moins de 30 ans, de toutes disciplines, qui sont intéressés à travailler au sein de la culture des centres d’artistes autogérés. Les candidats doivent former une équipe réunissant un maximum de 3 personnes afin de proposer un programme d’expositions et une structure de fonctionnement pour le centre. Skol recherche des participants qui veulent explorer, faire l’expérience et développer le contexte actuel du centre. Les postes offerts sont rémunérés sur une base de 35h/semaine à 12$/h, pour une période de 12 semaines débutant la première semaine de juin 2009 (conditionnel aux résultats des demandes de subvention).

Le programme d’été de Skol a été mis sur pied dans le but de soutenir des activités traitant des conditions de la culture des centres d’artistes autogérés. En transformant le centre en lieu d’apprentissage, le programme vise à fournir du temps, un espace et des ressources à de jeunes producteurs culturels afin de leur permettre de faire des expériences dans un contexte professionnel. Sous la supervision du centre et dans le cadre de son mentorat, les participants feront des expériences et acquerront des compétences précieuses pour le développement subséquent de leurs carrières et ambitions professionnelles. Pour sa part, Skol demeure ouvert à l’influence des propositions et actions des participants sur ses propres processus et pratiques de fonctionnement.

Skol ne possède pas de configuration « idéale », seulement des solutions inventives et audacieuses des participants quant au soutien et à la présentation de la production artistique émergeante au Canada.

« I believe in kindness »
Permanent Public Art Soundwork – June Callwood Park
City of Toronto – Call to Artists for Expression of Interest

Deadline: March 9

Dubbed « Canada’s Conscience », June Callwood (1924-2007) worked tirelessly to champion human rights and social justice, particularly for women and children. Over the course of her life she was involved in founding more than 50 humanitarian aid and civil liberty organizations, including PEN Canada, Nellie’s, Casey House and Digger House. June Callwood was awarded numerous honours in her lifetime, including Officer of the Order of Canada, and her words and actions have left an indelible impression on the social fabric of Toronto.

In 2005, when June Callwood was still alive, the City of Toronto dedicated a future park in her honour, located between Fleet Street and Fort York Boulevard in the emerging Fort York Neighbourhood. Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation have recently completed the competition process for the design of June Callwood Park. The winning concept, by Toronto-based Landscape Architects gh3, creates an urban forest from native tree species, and a series of openings whose form is derived from the sound pattern made from an excerpt from June Callwood’s last interview:

« I believe in kindness »

While not formally religious, June Callwood claimed that kindness was « a divinity in motion » and believed that babies are « full of God, if God is your kindness and your decency and your capacity for affection ». A few months before her death, June Callwood made it known that she wanted her park to be a place, where children’s capacities for kindness, decency and affection could be engaged in play, problem solving and collaboration.

To commemorate a woman known for her activism and words, the public art commission at June Callwood Park will be a permanent soundwork whose physical presence is integrated into the landscape design formed by a fragment of her spoken wisdom.

Toronto Cultural Services is seeking to commission a soundwork that will evoke the character and heart of June Callwood and engage the imaginations of children, young and old. The artwork project budget is $288,000, which includes all fabrication and installation costs and fees. Construction of the park will begin in early 2010, and is expected to be complete by 2011.

Toronto Cultural Services is inviting local, national, and international Artists or Artist Teams to submit:

* Resume(s);
* 6-8 audio-visual examples of recent, relevant work**; and
* Artist’s statement outlining experience and interest in the project.

**Please submit digital audio-visual samples on CD or DVD listing title, date, materials, duration and dimensions for each work. Please make sure files are compatible with Windows. Any images should be sent as jpegs, not larger than 5 MB. Include a stamped, self-addressed envelope for return of submission material, if desired.

Please note: Artists are NOT asked to submit proposals at this stage of the competition.

Submissions must be received Monday March 9th, 4 pm. Submissions should be sent to:

Public Art Office
Toronto Cultural Services
City Hall, Main Floor, East Tower
100 Queen Street West
Toronto ON M5H 2N2

Questions can be sent by email to: culture [arobas] toronto [point] ca . Please do not submit Expressions of Interest by email.

Toronto Cultural Services works with staff across City of Toronto divisions to identify exciting opportunities for commissioning public artworks in the City’s parks, streets and open spaces. For this project, Toronto Cultural Services is working with Parks, Forestry and Recreation. Parks, Forestry and Recreation’s website for this project can be found at toronto.ca/parks.

This project will be administered by Toronto Cultural Services’ Public Art Office. The artwork concept will be selected through a two-stage open competition, by an independent Selection Committee convened for this project, which will include practicing arts professionals as well as representatives from the local community.

A short list of 3-5 artists will be paid a fee to develop a project proposal based on a Terms of Reference document provided to the short-listed artists by Toronto Cultural Services. A public open house exhibition of the short-listed designs and final design selection will take place in summer 2009.

*Convocatoria abierta* *Fotoperformance homenaje a Hans Beck, inventor de
los Playmobil*

*
*

*Con motivo de la gira cósmica emprendida por **Hans Beck**, inventor de los
juguetes **Playmobil**, el pasado 30 de enero, se abre esta convocatoria
lúdica de fotoperformance en homenaje a la exquisita simpleza de estas
bellas piezas de arte para jugar que son los **Playmobil**.*

La idea del Playmobil empezó cuando una empresa jueguetera le pidió a Beck
que diseñara un juguete coleccionable de bolsillo. En realidad habían
pensado en una serie de autos minúsculos, pero optaron por la novedosa idea
que les presentó el inventor. *Las primeras figuras (indios, bomberos y
caballeros de la Edad Media) fueron patentados y presentados en la Feria
Mundial del Juguete de Núremberg, en 1974.

*

*Al cabo de un corto tiempo, la maravillosa simpleza y el logro estético de
estas figuras de *7,5 centímetros cautivó a miles de niños en todo el
planeta, dando paso a la invención de todo un universo de personajes
inspirados en los principios de su inventor: « nada de horror, de violencia,
ni de tendencias transitorias ».

Muchos artistas plásticos, titiriterxs, performers, les debemos a los
Playmobil alguno de nuestros primeros encuentros con la imaginación
creadora, con el goce estético, con nuestra propia capacidad de inventar y
animar un mundo desde la fantasía. Es por ello que se abre este homenaje a
su creador, en agradecimiento por haber dado cuerpo a uno de los valores más
complejos de captar desde el actor creativo, la belleza simple puesta al
servicio del juego.

*Modalidad **se recibirán fotoperformances en secuencias de cuatro imágenes
por correo electrónico a la casilla **laa.performa…@gmail.com***

*
La temática será abierta y la única condición de participación es incluir
muñecos **Playmobil **dentro de la secuencia. Se deberá respetar la esencia
lúdica del objeto y evitar cualquier tipo de mensaje o imagen que pudiera
resultar violento u ofensivo.

*

*La calidad de las imágenes deberá oscilar entre los 100 y 200 dpi (aprox.)
y en formato JPG.*

*Todas las imágenes enviadas serán expuestas en una galería virtual.*

*Muchas gracias, un abrazo fraterno*

Appel à projet curatorial 2009-2010 à la box – Bourges.

Une partie de la programmation de la saison 2009/2010 (octobre/mi-juillet) sera confiée à un commissaire indépendant,
un critique, un artiste ou un collectif, dont le projet aura été choisi par l’équipe pédagogique de l’école.
Le projet devra prendre en compte les dates des autres propositions de la programmation et questionner les paramètres du cycle d’expositions organisé :
thématique, dispositif, rythme, etc.
Son caractère expérimental sera l’un des principaux critères de sélection.
Inscrite dans le contexte pédagogique de l’école, la programmation devra être articulée à un workshop permettant à un petit groupe d’étudiants, d’aborder les problématiques de l’exposition. Ce workshop est encadré par un enseignant de l’école, mais il est conçu et animé par le curateur invité qui doit intégrer la présence et la participation des étudiants à chaque étape de son travail (depuis la conception des expositions jusqu’à leur médiatisation). En outre, le commissariat devra expérimenter une action de médiation envers un public extérieur qu’il déterminera. Dans son avant-projet, il devra faire part des motivations qu’il souhaite engager vis à vis de ce public.Le curateur invité est rémunéré en tant qu’intervenant sous forme d’honoraires.
Le budget global est de 25 000 euros.
Il comprend les productions, le transport des œuvres, le déplacement des artistes et du curateur, la communication et l’édition.
En plus de ce budget, est prévu un défraiement de 5000 euros si le commissaire est seul, 7000 euros s’ils sont deux et 8000 euros au delà.

L’école veillera à héberger le curateur pour l’exercice de sa mission. Soit dans un studio d’artiste qui permet d’accueillir simultanément des artistes invités et le commissaire, soit dans une chambre de l’appartement des enseignants, soit très exceptionnellement en chambre d’hôtel. Cette facilité d’hébergement permet à l’école de solliciter une présence régulière du commissaire, pour la conduite de son projet et notamment son volet pédagogique, tout en sachant qu’une partie de son travail peut s’effectuer à distance.Le curateur travaille en collaboration avec l’école, notamment l’équipe pédagogique et, plus particulièrement avec l’équipe permanente de la box : Chloé Nicolas, responsable de la box – Laurent Gautier, régisseur – Véronique Frémiot, médiatrice culturelle.Il n’y a pas de format d’exposition prédéfini. Le rythme (nombre et durée) reste à l’initiative du commissaire invité : il est possible d’imaginer une seule exposition évolutive, plusieurs expositions par mois, ou aucune, tout est imaginable. Parmi les expositions proposées, il est souhaitable qu’une ait lieu hors les murs. Le commissaire sera attentif au calendrier scolaire (vacances, examens) afin de faciliter la participation des étudiants.Le programme d’exposition est totalement indépendant du dispositif de résidence.
La présence d’artistes en résidence peut cependant permettre de nouveaux contacts et d’envisager des associations d’une manière ou d’une autre au projet du curateur.

Nous attirons l’attention des candidats sur la très grande disponibilité qu’impose la conduite d’un tel programme. Des réunions régulières et notamment la réunion de validation et d’organisation du projet sont indispensables sur place avec l’école, les étudiants du workshop et l’équipe de la box. Une grande réactivité s’impose, par email ou par téléphone, lors de la préparation des expositions. La présence est nécessaire dans la galerie pendant les périodes de montage. Dans le cas d’un collectif, la concertation et la coordination doivent être garanties entre les commissaires associés afin que ceux-ci puissent se relayer sans contradiction auprès de l’école et de l’équipe de la box.Les avant-projets devront être envoyés par email à : la [point] box [arobas] ensa-bourges [point] fr
Calendrier : – Date limite de réception des avant-projets : samedi 14 mars 2009.
– Pré-sélection de quatre dossiers : semaine du 16 au 20 mars 2009
– Audition et sélection : lundi 30 mars 2009
– Réunion de validation et d’organisation du projet avec le (les) commissaire(s) sélectionné(s) l’école et l’équipe de la box : fin avril 2009

Call for Proposals from artists and photographers – Contacting Toronto: What’s Your Revolution?

Contacting Toronto offers artists and photographers an audience of 1.3 million people a day from May 1-31. This annual, open-call photography exhibition is featured on the Onestop network of 270 screens, in over 50 stations on the TTC.

The 2009 theme is: What’s Your Revolution?
Proposal Deadline: March 27th.

Change is in the air and dreams suddenly seem possible… so, what’s your revolution? Silent or rowdy, playful or radical, personal or far-reaching – revolutions happen everyday on every scale. This is your chance to incite, stimulate and motivate… as part of a public photo installation in the TTC, featured by Contact Toronto 2009.

Using photographic imagery, with the optional addition of text, artists will have a chance to reach out to the commuting public, engaging them with revolutionary ideas, enlightened calls to action, and artistic responses to the idea of inciting revolt in Torontonians.

Selected projects will play on the Onestop TTC screens, cycling every 10 minutes all day, and will be given up to 1 week of air time, depending on the scope and needs of the project.

Every project that is selected will run as a series of widescreen, 30-second slideshows. We recommend that between 5 and 8 images be shown per 30 second spot/slideshow. Slideshow content can change either once or twice a day, for up to one week, depending on the project’s needs.

Upload your proposals at: www.contactingtoronto.ca

Your proposal should include:

* 5-10 sample images
* an image information sheet
* a bio or CV including contact information
* a one-page project proposal detailing your take on our revolutionary theme, and how you will use images and text (if you plan to include text) in our 30-second slideshow format. Make sure to include an indication of how many days of screen time your project requires (in 30 second spots), and approximately how many images you would show in total (see below for more details).

Other Details:
The artist/photographer’s name and the title of their work will be displayed with the slideshow whenever it is aired. All projects will also be included on the website, and will be made available online from the day they screen on the TTC. Photographers may also choose to display their own URL or contact email beside the online version of their work.

What’s Your Revolution? is curated by Sharon Switzer and co-produced by Onestop Media Group and Art for Commuters.

The curator will consider all submissions and respond by: April 1st.
If your proposal is accepted the curator contact you to discuss the details of your project, including technical considerations for screening on the Onestop network. The final version of selected projects must be submitted by April 27th.

This year’s selected curatorial intern is Jennifer Chan, an interdisciplinary artist and specialist in Visual Culture & Communication at University of Toronto Misssissauga/Sheridan College Art & Art History program.

We are looking for submissions of electronic new media work that explores the aesthetics, determinance, (sub)cultures and history of digital media in relation to other creative media such as sculpture, installation, video, site-specific, audio and performance art. Preference may be given towards interactive and/or multimedia work that examines how the personal and political is articulated through digital mediation. Web-based projects are also welcome. However, due to the flexible parameters of an open call, the emerging curator will develop an exhibition related to all the submissions received.

Each selected artist will receive a CARFAC artist fee for participating. Artwork will be exhibited at InterAccess beginning Friday July 10 until Saturday August 8, 2009.

While we welcome proposals from outside of Ontario, please note that InterAccess cannot provide artist travel fees or cover the shipping of artwork.

Manifest Gallery, Cincinnati, Ohio
May 25 to June 26, 2009

An international call for small works no larger than 7″ in any dimension. Open to all media.

Every year Manifest calls for little works of art from around the world. Like short poetry, they are a challenge to craft with the same presence of their larger counterparts. Each exhibit brings in hundreds of powerful yet diminutive masterpieces for our jury to mull over. Inevitably we end up with a gallery full of diverse, compelling, and exquisite little gems. Manifest’s patrons eagerly await the Magnitude SEVEN event each year. So without further ado, we offer this call to artists to submit works no larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion). Standard presentation devices like mats and frames that are not considered part of the work of art are not limited by the 7″ criteria.  Complete entry info here.
http://www.manifestgallery.org/seven09

ABOUT MANIFEST
Manifest enhances the role of art and design in society by cultivating and focusing the transformative power of creativity in the visual arts. Manifest benefits people in the global and local community, including professionals, students, and the public, by creating quality-centered experiences focused on contemporary visual arts and related activities in the context of creative exploration.  Manifest is located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

EMAIL: pdcon09 [arobas] estudiolivre [point] org

NEWS (feb 15th):

– Online Submission procedure is opening on monday 16th!!!

– New Templates and Forms will be posted when the submission is opened!

– WE HAVE A NEW DEADLINE FOR THE SUBMISSION OF WORKS, MONDAY MARCH 15TH OF
2009!!!

ABOUT THE EVENT:
Puredata, or just Pd , is an open source tool for
multimedia programming. Because of its open source nature, much of its
development result from a community effort of developers worldwide. Some
centers do have more people engaged, like the places that held the two
previous conventions.

the first convention took place in Graz, Austria, in 2004
http://puredata.info/community/projects/convention04/. The second happened
in Montreal, Canada, in 2007 http://pure-data.ca/en/. It is a great
satisfaction that we continue this event by bringing it to yet another
continent, with the intent to promote the formation of an important group of
developers locally. In fact, in may of 2008, we had a national convention in
Brazil http://www.estudiolivre.org/tiki-index.php?page=Encontro%20PD, which
followed the same format of the previous international conventions, and
worked as a first gathering to organize this international event. The format
includes the show of artistic works, academic works, discussion regarding
the interests of the community, and diverse courses.

CALL FOR WORKS VS. 2.5 (FEB 15TH)

GENERAL CALL
We invite artists, producers, developers and further enthusiasts of the open
source tool Puredata to send works and projects alike in the following
categories:

A) Art Festival: (Art Installations, Concerts, Performances & Audiovisual
Presentations).
B) Mini-Courses & Workshops.
C) Paper Sessions/Posters.
D) Round Tables & Discussions.

Applicants are invited to submit in multiple categories, especially if
related (example: paper + artwork) – not that this will favor in the
selection process.

Please note we are looking for a diverse collection of works, hence there
might be a selection among several similar proposals (and more unique and
original ones might have some advantage).

Let us know if you have an institution support that may cover travel
expenses, we are looking for partnerships to help with funds.

The event will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from July 19th to july 26th,
2009.

Possible (yet to be properly officialized) Locations & Partnerships:
– MIS, Sao Paulo’s Museum of Image & Sound.

Addresses of the Official webpage for news updates & more info:
http://convention.puredata.info
http://estudiolivre.org/pdcon09

Proposals for the Art Festival:
Performances, Concerts, Audiovisual Presentations & Art Installations (audio
And/Or Visual):
As it is the general concept of the event, we long for the discussion
regarding the aesthetics and politics of Free / Open Source Software Culture
& technology. In such context, we welcome all forms of works related to
audio and/or visual, including real-time interactive works, improvisations,
Live electronics/instrumental/electroacoustic mixes, Sound installations,
Performances, Network art, Robotics, Software Art and Interdisciplinary
works.

Demonstrations and General Info about Artistic works can be submitted online
in Portuguese, Spanish, or English. Please, specify the necessary materials
so we can do our best to provide them.

If language is a part of the artwork, the festival is open to any idiom,
although subtitles in English should be provided when applicable.

We look for art installations that adopted Puredata in its development.
Nevertheless, at the last extent, we are open for works realized under the
context of Puredata (using puredata in some part of the process) as well as
open source tools.

We are looking for partners to help us with tickets. Any suggestion is
welcome.

Note for ART-INSTALLATIONS (Audio And/Or Visual):
In order to avoid dependence on travel funds from the event, it would be
nice to have some works installed without the need for the artist(s) to be
on-site. This also implies that such works should be technically simple.

Call for Posters/Papers:
Abstracts and papers may be submitted in English. The works will be
organized in categories depending on what we receive. At first, we
contemplate a greater distinction into 3 categories: Technical, Artistic and
Theoretical.

The topics are generally open to the usage of Puredata in interactive art
production/research, the philosophy and social aspect of Free Open Source
Culture, and scientific research. Some possible themes could include:

– Programming Puredata externals
– Puredata versus Max/MSP
– Puredata versus SuperCollider, CSound, Processing and alike
– Hacking Puredata
– Future Projections for Puredata
– Hacktivist culture
– OpenContent and Creative Commons versus Intellectual Property forms
– Finding an Art Historical context for Open-Source Software Art
– Sampling and Plunderphonics as artistic strategies
– Computer-Supported Cooperative Work
– Networking
– Live Coding
– Philosophy, Culture and Sociology of Open Source Software and Open Works
– Aesthetics of New Media/New Technology Art
– Using Puredata in Science/Research & Artistic Works: (Digital Signal
Processing, Generative Works, Artificial Intelligence/Life & Computer-Aided
Work in General, User Interfaces – Human computer interaction/Virtual
reality interaction -, Realtime Performance, Auditory/Visual perception and
cognition, Acoustics/Psychoacoustics Modeling, Sound Synthesis, Timbre &
Sound Models, Biological and medical uses of Puredata.

And so on…
