Appel à Participation pour « L’HOMME À LA CAMÉRA : LA REPRISE GLOBALE » qui sera à la Biennale de Montréal du 1 au 31 mai 2009.

Il s’agit d’une vidéo participative inspirée par le chef d’œuvre de Vertov, L’Homme à la caméra. Tout le monde est invité à télécharger des extraits vidéo. Les contributions font partie d’une base de données à partir de laquelle le logiciel crée un montage selon l’original. Pour participer, cliquez sur les tags ou les scènes – pour les scènes choisissez une, cliquez sur les plans. On invite l’interprétation, ce n’est pas nécessaire imiter l’original. Votre site web est lié sous le titre Participants si vous donnez votre url.

Chaque jour le logiciel crée une nouvelle version du film. À gauche vous avez l’original de Vertov, a droite la reprise. Le logiciel alterne les téléchargements donc la reprise n’est jamais la même. Les plans noirs attendent un téléchargement. Peut-être que vous pouriez les remplir ?

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. Proposals must be received by the deadlines 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.

It will take place at Casino Luxembourg (Luxembourg) from 5–19 July 2009 and in Shanghai (China) from 9–14 April 2010 and from 8–17 July 2010.Workshop leaders: Sylvie Blocher (artist, lives and works in Saint-Denis, France)Paul di Felice (curator, publisher, teacher researcher at the University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg)Workshop leader from China to be determined soon.Lecturers:Francoise Vergès (researching professor at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths College, London, United Kingdom)Bernard Stiegler (philosopher and author, director of the Institute of Research and Innovation at Centre Pompidou, Paris, France)Moved, Mutated and Disturbed Identities has been set as this year’s theme to challenge European and Asian artists to work on realities and identities in both China and Luxembourg.In general, the representation of identities is complex. Only parts are visible, because presentable. Reading between the lines, looking behind the facade is made difficult. When represented, thus simplified, identities create fronts and barriers, disturbed ones may open up spaces for negotiation, change, infiltration, segmentation, transformation, alienation, discovery, re-appropriation …Movement, mutation and disturbance of identities can happen at micro and macro scales. Individuals, groups, communities, citizens, cities, states etc. can be the subjects or objects concerned by these acts and affected to become constructed identities, changing identities, fake identities, multiple identities, lost identities, split identities, refuted identities, hidden identities, repressed identities etc.During this international post master residency programme, the artists are invited to respond to the theme through local contexts, states and situations. Several lectures will be organised. The selected participants are expected to present their works, to engage in art-making and fieldwork, and to produce individual works for an exhibition in Luxembourg and one in Shanghai. They will also have to make a presentation at the Luxembourg Pavilion during the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. Accommodation, daily fees and travel costs will be covered by the organisers.

Verve Gallery of Photography welcomes portfolio submissions. Verve is a private gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico that features and sells contemporary fine art photography.

http://www.santafephotogallery.com

Verve is open to new work in all photographic based media, subjects, styles and schools. We look for artists who have a mastery of the photographic medium, demonstrate vitality and originality in expression, excellence in composition, and have verve in imagination. We apply these criteria in selecting work in each of the following categories.

Verve has three categories of submissions:

Verve’s Represented Artists.
Verve’s Represented Artists are those photographers that Verve features throughout the year and with whom Verve has a committed long-term business relationship. Photographers who are interested in such representation are invited to submit their work in this category.

Contemporary Documentary Photographers —Photojournalism.
In mid-winter Verve hosts an exhibition of contemporary documentary photography or photojournalism. The show may be either a group show or the work of a single photographer. Verve generally schedules this show more than a year in advance. Photojournalists are invited to submit work.

Emerging Photographers.
Verve welcomes the work of emerging artists. We feature one emerging artist at a time on Verve’s website. Once the work is selected by Verve it will be shown on Verve’s website as an on-line exhibition. As a general rule, the work will be up on the website for a period of four to eight weeks. The on-line exhibition of a single emerging artist will complement and run concurrently with a Verve Gallery exhibition. Please indicate in your submission that you wish to be considered as an Emerging Photographer.

Please Note: In submitting your work to Verve for gallery representation in any or all of the categories, and if accepted by Verve, Verve expects to be your exclusive gallery and agent in New Mexico throughout the term of any agreement with Verve.

CENTRE FOR FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY: CALLS FOR ENTRIES

Posted: 31 Mar 2009 09:37 AM PDT

WORKS OF MAN:  DEADLINE APRIL 9, 2009

Theme: The drive to create is a strong one in humanity.  Whether it is massive structures like the Pyramids or the Eiffel Tower, or the tiniest computer chip, humankind has always been driven to leave its mark on the planet. “Works of Man” is an opportunity for artists to chronicle the indelible mark that has been made by these creations.

With “Works of Man”, The Center for Fine Art Photography seeks to chronicle the drive to build, destroy, manufacture and dismantle, that resides in all of us. Images from the tallest building to the smallest child’s toy, the newest electric gadget to the oldest tool from the earliest people, truly anything created by the minds and hands of humanity will be considered
for the show.

PORTFOLIO SHOWCASE, VOLUME 3: DEADLINE: APRIL 28, 2009

Fifteen photographers will be chosen to display their twelve-image portfolio in The Center for Fine Art Photography’s Portfolio ShowCase Volume 3: Book and Online Exhibition. The show will be featured on the Center’s web site at www.c4fap.org from June 1 – June 30, 2009 and will remain online for the next two years.  The Center is pleased to provide artists with an economical means of having their work reviewed by an international juror and exhibited with no printing, framing or shipping costs involved.

Theme:  Open – There is no theme for this exhibition. The images will be evaluated as a cohesive body of work, rather than individual images.

DOCUMENTARY: DEADLINE MAY 12, 2009

Theme: Documentary photography has the power to tell stories untold, create social change, awaken emotions, and show the intimate and unseen.  This exhibition will feature the artistic viewpoint of the documentary photographer.

Eligibility: The exhibition is open to photographers world wide, both amateur and professional.  The Center for Fine Art Photography invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate in its exhibitions. Experimental and mixed techniques are welcome.

All of the Center’s juried exhibitions are open to all domestic and international, professional and amateur, photographers working with digital or traditional photography or combinations of both. The Center for Fine Art Photography invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate.
