Request for Information
City of Coquitlam, British Columbia
Deadline for Submissions: April 7, 2:00 pm PST
Project Budget: $ 150,000

National Call to Artists

This Request for Information is issued by the City of Coquitlam.  Coquitlam is seeking Statement of Qualifications from artists with demonstrated experience in the field of public art, ability to work collaboratively in a design team environment and work within set budgets and construction schedules.

Maillardville, named for Father Maillard, a young Oblate from France, was more than just a French-Canadian enclave in Western Canada. It was a vibrant community, the largest Francophone centre west of Manitoba, and the seed for the future growth of Coquitlam.

While the passing of time has diluted the use of the French language in BC, it is still heard on the streets and in the homes on the south slope of Coquitlam. Maillardville’s past is recognized in street names that honour early pioneers and in local redevelopments which reflect its French-Canadian heritage. Taken from the City of Coquitlam web site.

The intent of this project is to honour the francophone involvement in Coquitlam’s heritage by placing a significant piece of public artwork in the Maillardville neighbourhood to give pride of place and to educate and inform.

Request for Information documents may be obtained from the City’s website: www.coquitlam.ca or by email request: citypurchasing [arobas] coquitlam [point] ca

ADDENDA
Artists are required to check the City’s website for any updated information and addenda issues before the closing date and time at the following website address:

Call for Proposals
Toronto Sculpture Garden
Toronto, Ontario
Next Deadline: received by May 15, 2009

The Toronto Sculpture Garden has been a leader in Canada in the
commissioning of contemporary sculpture since it opened in 1981. Located
in an urban park in the downtown core, it serves as a testing ground for
artists to explore public space and to address issues of urban context,
materials and scale.

BACKGROUND:

The TSG is a non-collecting institution that is unique in its
partnership between the City of Toronto, which owns and operates the
site as a city park, and the Louis L. Odette Family, benefactors who
created the non-profit L.L.O. Sculpture Garden Foundation which funds
and administers the exhibitions. Exhibitions are selected by an Art
Advisory Board working with the director, Rina Greer.

Newly commissioned work becomes property of the artist and may
be offered for sale after the conclusion of the exhibition.

PROPOSALS:

The TSG’s Art Advisory Board meets three times a year to review
specific proposals.  Preference is given to new work that responds to
the site; only in exceptional cases will existing work be considered. We
are currently looking for exhibitions for May 2010 and beyond.
Deadlines are each year on January 15, May 15 and September 15.

Proposals require:

*    Drawing(s) showing dimensions and materials and the location of
the work on the site.
*    Brief statement of Theme
*    Budget showing materials, installation/removal, transportation,
and critical costs
*    10-20 slides, photographs or colour copies (no CD, DVD or video)
of relevant work C.V.

Pacific Cinémathèque

Nearing 10 years of screenings! Please help spread the word. Thanks! Please forgive any cross postings. I am still desperately seeking assistants/assistance!  ;-)

Pacific Cinémathèque and curator Heather Haley are seeking videopoem submissions from around the world for the annual Visible Verse screening and performance poetry celebration. SEE THE VOICE: Visible Verse is North America’s sustaining venue for the presentation of new and artistically significant poetry video and film.

Official guidelines:

* Visible Verse seeks videopoems, with a 15 minutes maximum duration.
* Either official language of Canada is acceptable, though if the video is in French, an English-dubbed or-subtitled version is required for consideration. Videos may originate in any part of the world, however.
* Works will be judged on true literary merit. The ideal videopoem is a wedding of word and image, the voice seen as well as heard.
* Please, do not send documentaries, as they are outside the featured genre.
* Videopoem producers should provide a brief bio, full name, and contact information in a cover letter. There is no official application form nor entry fee.

Send, at your own risk, videopoems and poetry films/preview copies (which cannot be returned) in DVD NTSC format to: VISIBLE VERSE c/o Pacific Cinémathèque, 200–1131 Howe Street, Vancouver, BC, V6Z 2L7, Canada. Selected artists will be notified and receive a screening fee.

DEADLINE: Sept. 1, 2009

For more information contact Heather Haley at: hshaley [arobas] emspace [point] com
“Heather Haley is a well-established presenter of poetry video in Vancouver. An instigator of poetry video production and appreciation in Canada, Haley and the Edgewise ElectroLit Centre convened the original Vancouver Videopoem Festival in 1999. That festival became critically regarded owing to the its progressive regard for spoken word in cinema. The 2000 festival, for example, presented many poets both in performance and on the big screen. The audience could see for themselves the merits and distinctions of poetry rendered in time in these two forms, stage versus screen. The festival then built upon that critical base, with widened explorations into poetry cinema across national frontiers. They presented significant new works from Europe and the Americas, and continued to offer Canadian audiences a remarkably broad selection of new videopoems from their own country. And owing to Vancouver’s strength in the film and television production industries, Haley has been able to cultivate critical interest between filmmakers and poets, with positive consequences for both.”-Kurt Heintz, Director, e-poets

Eyelevel Gallery | 35 Days of Non-Organized Art
————————————————————————
**First Come First Serve!**

Eyelevel Gallery invites emerging and established artists of all
disciplines to participate in an upcoming project called 35 Days of
Non-Organized Art. In celebration of its 35th anniversary, Eyelevel Gallery
will open its gallery space to anyone who wants to present an exhibition,
performance, lecture, workshop, or any other kind of art-related event from
April 23-May 27 2009. The gallery encourages local as well as national and
international participation. For those are not in Halifax or who can’t
physically be in the gallery, we can help to facilitate projects that take
place from a remote location. We also welcome art collaborations and
collectives as well as conceptual or experimental projects that may be
conducted by another individual and if possible, we can provide a volunteer
to carry out the activity.

The aim of this project is to provide public access to the gallery and to
provide an environment that supports creative, spontaneous and interactive
artistic production. For the duration of the 35 Days project, the gallery
will not “organize” any of these events and will instead, serve to offer
its space for people to congregate and to “self-organize” art-related
activities. Space will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis and
participants can reserve the gallery for 1-3 days.

35 Days of Non-organized art will be presented as part of Unplugged, a
month long experiment in low-tech and creative administration. We urge
artists who are participating in the 35 Days of Non-organized Art project,
to create works that respond to this idea of unplugging and to create works
that do not use any form of post-1974 technology or media.

Send us a letter or illustrated text (no emails) describing what you would
like to present and what day(s) (between April 23-May 27) you would like to
reserve the gallery for your project.

You may send this letter by mail or you can drop by the gallery in person.
Do not send support material, or a CV or anything other than a half-one
page letter describing your project.

* Please include your telephone number and mailing address so we may
respond/confirm your request for date selection

Mail or drop off your letter to:

PROCHAINE DATE DE TOMBÉE POUR LA GALERIE TIERS-ESPACE: LE VENDREDI 27 MARS 2009 À MINUIT PILE!

Saint Jean, Nouveau-Brunswick: La Galerie Tiers-espace est à la recherche de projets d’expositions, d’événements ou de performances pour sa programmation 2009-2010. Les projets soumis doivent pouvoir aisément s’adapter à un parc public, un terrain vacant, un couloir, un édifice désaffecté ou encore une vitrine de magasin abandonnée. Afin de respecter son mandat visant sortir l’art de la galerie traditionnelle pour l’insérer dans des lieux insuités, Tiers-espace est à la recherche de projets de diffusion, de performance, d’intervention ou de tout autre proposition qui réinvente la notion d’exposition et qui explore l’espace entre les sphères publique et privée.

> RESSOURCES TECHNIQUES

La Galrie Tiers-espace s’incarne parfois dans un espace vitrine dont les dimensions sont approximativement de 5 pieds de profondeur par 10 pieds de hauteur par 10 pieds de largeuront. Il lui arrive par ailleurs de trouver refuge dans un petit bureau ou encore dans une galerie exigüe située au bout d’un couloir étroit dans un centre communautaire dévoué à la diffusion des arts. Parfois, la galerie s’insinue dans la vitrine du magasin d’aubaines The Bargain! Shop, en plein coeur de la rue principale de la haute-ville. En somme: proposez-nous un projet, nous lui trouverons un lieu de diffusion.

Tiers-espace est équipé pour la présentation de DVD (un seul canal) sur des écrans de différents formats issus de différentes époques ou encore à l’aide d’un vidéoprojecteur. Nos équipements sonores consistent en une chaîne stéréo usagée, des enceintes de plastique et un casque d’écoute lui aussi en plastique. La galerie fera tout ce qui lui est possible pour soutenir les artistes choisis dans l’inégration de leur projet dans la communauté – rencontres, accompagnements, hébergement, sorties arrosées ou non, voire utilisation de téléphone cellulaire avec messagerie texte. Tiers-espace rémunère les artistes avec un droit qui respecte – ou à une cenne près – les recommandations émises par l’organisme de défense des droits des artistes CARFAC.

> DOSSIER D’APPUI

* Nous recevons les soumissions de projet uniquement par courriel.  tiersespace [arobas] gmail [point] com Facile!

Pour l’évaluation de votre dossier, veuillez nous acheminer:

> une description brève et claire du projet (maximum 500 mots)
> 10 images maximum (chaque fichier JPG doit faire moins d’un MG, SVP)
> curriculum vitae d’artiste (maximum 3 pages)

Dans votre lettre de présentation, nous vous prions de préciser votre capacité à offrir un atelier, une causerie d’artiste pour la communauté ou toute autre forme de présentation publique. Dans le cas des ateliers et présentations, veuillez indiquer le groupe d’âge auquel vous souhaitez vous adresser ainsi qu’une brève description des sujets abordés et/ou un cursus sommaire, s’il y a lieu. Saint Jean est une ville universitaire sans programme d’arts, Tiers-espace remplit donc une fonction pédagogique essentielle visant à créer un contact avec l’art contemporain dans la région.

Veuillez prendre note que la date de tombée pour la réception des projets par courriel est à minuit pile le 27 mars, comme pour Cendrillon. Nous accorderons une attention particulière aux projets reçus plus tôt. Les artistes choisis seront avertis en avril 2009, et la confirmation de la diffusion du projet leur sera acheminée en août 2009, en fonction des réponses des demandes de financement.

Merci de votre intérêt, et bonne chance: nous avons hâte de lire vos propositions!

Artcity 2009 // September 4th to 13th, 2009

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ARCHITECTURE

Deadline: April 17

The Visual Arts Week Society is seeking architecture-related proposals for the 18th incarnation of Artcity Festival, September 4th to 13th, 2009. The festival showcases interactive, performative, and experimental works in all media, with a mandate to show new and site-specific pieces in dynamic, outdoor environments.

Submission Procedure:

One project will be selected for execution as part of Artcity Festival 2009. The winner will receive CARFAC artist and production fees to implement/construct the idea. Proposals are selected through a peer review process by a panel consisting of professional artists, architects, and critics. Proposals will be selected based on consideration of the following criteria: artistic merit of the proposed project, fit with the Artcity mandate, and the ability of Artcity to provide appropriate space/support for the project. For more information on Artcity, please visit www.artcityfestival.com

Festival Express

In 1970, Janis Joplin, The Band, The Grateful Dead and a crew of other unruly musicians boarded a Canadian Pacific Railway train for five days with the intention of spreading their free-spirited lifestyle and musical stylings across the land. The rest is history. We acknowledge the idea that rock music and youth culture can act as catalysts for social change, and posit that contemporary art and design can use zeitgeist/streetwise/hedonistic tactics for the same productive ends. This is an opportunity to design a place that provokes interaction, dialogue and experience. This is an opportunity to shove all things rad in the face of all things not rad. This is art as beauty, freedom, thought, shock, or any such delight that we hold sacred.

We are seeking proposals for temporary architectural installations that address:

* a « township » or multiple structure theme
* the nomadic nature of Artcity festival
* the utopian nature of outdoor rock music festivals
* the need for a space/structure where the public can congregate en masse, enjoy, and be challenged.

Please submit ALL of the following:

1. An application form available at www.artcityfestival.com/architects-call-2009

2. A detailed project proposal (maximum 2 pages), including concept, working methods, duration, material and transportation needs. People not familiar with Calgary or the festival are encouraged to contact Artcity in advance to discuss ideas.

3. A current artist’s statement, maximum 1 page.

4. A current Curriculum Vitae, maximum 3 pages: Describe your artistic background (e.g. education, grants, scholarships or awards received, professional status, previous exhibitions or performances, commissions, professional memberships, articles, etc.)

5.
 Support materials, no originals please. Include 1 of the following:

* up to 15 RGB format jpgs, 1200 pixels on the longest side, maximum 5MB each. Your support images are NOT printed; they are reviewed using a standard data projector and laptop computer. It is to your disadvantage to include extremely high-resolution files that cannot be viewed on single computer screen. We recommend 72 dpi resolution.
* up to 8 minutes of video footage* in DVD NTSC format, or .mov file on CD-R/DVD-R. *Please note that all submissions including video and/or audio materials MUST be mailed in hard copy to the Artcity P.O. Box. The insurable value of your preview material is equivalent to the disk it is copied on. Emailed or uploaded video submissions will not be accepted.

* Applicants also have the option to submit press clippings, reviews, and exhibition essay materials. These are optional, and should only be provided if they relate directly to your proposal.
* Please ensure that your support material is compatible with Mac OS. Please do NOT send Powerpoint presentations, slides, printed images, or VHS tapes as these will not be reviewed.

6. A brief description of support material, including title, medium, year of completion, and numbered in sequence as applicable.

7. A self-addressed sufficiently stamped envelope (if you wish to have your materials returned to you). Due to excessive costs for the Festival, your submission materials will not be returned without one. Postage must be valid for mailing from within Canada, ie, the package must have Canadian stamps.

TIPS:

Your support images are NOT printed; they are reviewed using a standard data projector and laptop computer. It is to your disadvantage to include extremely high-resolution files that cannot be viewed on single computer screen. We recommend 72 dpi.

Proposals should be clearly written in English or French, typed on 8.5″ x 11″ paper in black ink with a minimum 12-point font. Do not staple or bind your materials in any way.

When building your proposal, please keep in mind that each jury member reviews a photocopy of your written materials before they view your visual support material. It is to your advantage to provide written materials that are easily readable after being photocopied.

Make sure that your name and the title of your project is clearly marked on each part of your submission, including all of your support material(s).

Due to the large volume of submissions, incomplete proposals or those that exceed the maximum number of requested pages/support material will not be reviewed.

The postmark deadline for hard copy materials is April 17th, 2009. Submission forms and all other digitally submitted materials must be received by 17:30 Mountain Standard Time, April 17th, 2009.

Please send any hard copy support materials to:
Artcity Architecture Programming Committee
P.O. Box 2294, Stn M
Calgary, AB T2P 2M6
CANADA

Artcity will not accept emailed or faxed proposals.

Artcity pays CARFAC exhibition fees and additionally provides artists with production allowances. The festival welcomes proposals from producers from all cultural backgrounds and sociopolitical associations.
