Cette célébration culturelle indépendante rassemble environ 300 créateurs de livres, fanzines, bandes dessinées et autres créations imprimées, et ce, pour une des plus grandes foires artistiques de Montréal.

Depuis les sept dernières années, visité par des milliers de curieux, Expozine s’est développé de manière exponentielle devenant ainsi une figure de proue dans son domaine. Les exposants proviennent de partout au Canada, de l’Europe et des États-Unis, pour venir présenter leur travail dans le cadre de la manifestation bilingue de l’édition indépendante la plus réputée en Amérique!

La force majeure de cette foire réside dans le fait que les œuvres qui y sont présentées sont pour la plupart exclusives ou rares. C’est donc l’endroit idéal pour y vendre vos productions émergentes, en plus de celles bien établies, et ce à un coût d’inscription vraiment minime.

Cette année, pour la première fois, il y aura aussi une programmation de lectures et colloques tout au long de l’événement en plus d’une excitante soirée d’ouverture.

C’est un rendez-vous à ne pas manquer!

Praxis art actuel
Appel de dossiers 2010-2011

date de tombée : 30 novembre 2009

Programmation Mon espace / Your space

Être de passage à Praxis art actuel pour l’un des blocs de la programmation Mon espace / Your space implique une découverte du lieu dans lequel vous vous retrouverez. Praxis souhaite amener les artistes professionnels du milieu de l’art au-delà du processus habituel de création/production/diffusion. Dans le cadre de sa programmation 2010-2011, le Centre vous invite à déposer des projets pour y questionner ou redéfinir des problématiques liées à votre démarche artistique ou approfondir certaines facettes de votre pratique. Praxis offre un espace de réflexion, des circuits d‘échange, et des collaborations avec les communautés et ses territoires afin de soutenir votre processus de création.

Sous le thème Mon espace / Your space, les artistes doivent proposer un projet qui s’inspire des particularités et des caractéristiques géographiques, sociales, économiques ou culturelles propres à la Ville de Sainte-Thérèse ou à sa région. Les artistes seront jumelés à des membres-accompagnateurs nommés par le Centre et l’agente de développement de la Ville de Sainte-Thérèse sera mise à leur disposition. Praxis considère ces paramètres comme des éléments devant stimuler la création tout en tenant compte des spécificités de la démarche artistique de chacun. Les artistes sélectionnés réaliseront une série d’explorations et d’expérimentations afin de développer et d’enrichir leur projet initialement proposé. Le rapprochement avec les communautés étant primordial pour Praxis, les artistes doivent également travailler de concert avec les citoyens et les intégrer dans leur processus de création. Le public pourra donc être témoin de l’évolution de chaque projet tout au long du bloc, en particulier lors des séjours des artistes en expérimentation et à travers les traces de leur projet en cours laissées dans le laboratoire-atelier.

Un bloc de programmation réunit trois artistes. Toujours en collaboration avec le Centre, ces derniers doivent réalisés leur projet sur une période de trois mois : bloc d’automne (mi-septembre à mi-décembre 2010) ou le bloc du printemps (début avril à fin juin 2011). Pendant ces périodes, les trois artistes seront amenés à se croiser, à échanger et à partager leurs idées. Ils participeront également aux rencontres de travail pilotées par Praxis dans le but de susciter les discussions et faire progresser les projets en cours. L’une des propositions explorées devra être finalisée et présentée hors nos murs, dans le cadre d’un événement spécial réunissant le travail des trois artistes. Organisé à la fin du bloc, l’événement sera conçu en collaboration soit avec des groupes de citoyens, avec des commerçants ou avec des organismes de nos territoires.

En adéquation avec la vision revisitée de la résidence-laboratoire, le Centre tente de s’éloigner du cadre habituel de présentation en salle pour valoriser davantage le développement de nouveaux projets, l’avancement des pratiques artistiques et le rapprochement des publics.

Votre dossier doit comprendre :
– un curriculum vitae (3 pages maximum)

– un court texte expliquant votre démarche artistique (250 mots maximum)

– un texte décrivant votre intention de recherche et vos motivations (250 mots maximum)

– une documentation visuelle de votre travail avec description :

– 15 images numériques maximum, clairement identifiées

– 1 bande audio/vidéo VHS ou DVD format NTSC (3 minutes maximum)

– un dossier de presse (facultatif)

– une enveloppe de retour préaffranchie pour le renvoi des documents. Prenez note que les dossiers sans enveloppe de retour préaffranchie seront détruits au mois d’août de l’année suivante

Le centre n’accepte pas les dossiers envoyés par courriel.

Économisez le papier. Tout votre dossier doit être remis sur CD-ROM, DVD ou clé USB dans les formats suivants :

– Textes format « .PDF », « .DOC » ou « .RTF »;
– Images format « .JPG » seulement;
– présenter des fichiers compatibles avec PC seulement;
– soumettre des images d’une résolution de 72ppp n’excédant pas 1.0 Mo;
– Dossier de presse et documentation d’appui numérisé (« .JPG » ou « .PDF »).

Nous n’acceptons pas :

Call for Ladyfest Toronto’s art exhibition | OCT 25

Over 2 weeks in late November, Ladyfest Toronto’s art
exhibition will explore the ways in which women and
transpeople relate to the people in our lives. We are looking for
work that examines and interrogates, transgresses, re-situates
and celebrates the categories of family, parent, friend, lover,
partner, stranger, in the relationships that shape our identities.

What do we learn from the families who raised us, and what do
we leave behind (or wish we could)? How do we construct new
families? Communities of colour, queer communities,
Indiginous communities, immigrant communities, play groups,
reading groups, roommates, partners, collectives…. What kinds
of relationships do we seek, and how do we find them? How do
they challenge or reinforce our vision of ourselves? How do
relationships break us and how can they build us up again?

Ladyfest Toronto is accepting art and proposals in all media
(drawing, painting, printmaking, performance, video,
installation, ETC). Because we are working on tight deadlines,
work submitted should closely reflect that which you wish to
exhibit. Works in progress will be considered with
documentation and a clear proposal. Your submission should
include the following:

5-10 images of work (website, JPG or PDF images, or DVDs of
time-based work)
proposal
brief bio & statement situating your work
list of images including date, size and media

Proposals may be submitted by October 25th
(We will accept late submissions, just let us know!)
via email to lftoarts [arobas] gmail [point] com
or mail to 66 St. Anne’s Rd. (please include SASE if you want
your
submission returned)

***Ladyfest Toronto is the local incarnation of an international
annual non-profit interdisciplinary festival. Each year the
Ladyfest Toronto collective organizes a festival of art, music,
performance, poetry, and politics to celebrate community and
disseminate the projects and accomplishments of Toronto
feminists. The Ladyfest collective operates from a sex- and
body-positive, inclusive, anti-oppressive, pro-feminist, politically
charged framework and embraces all feminist peoples. This
year’s festival is taking place November 25-29, 2009.

PSi 16, Performing Publics, will take place in Toronto as part of a collaboration between York University’s Faculty of Fine Arts and the Ontario College of Art & Design. The conference will investigate the power of performance to intervene in, reshape, and reinvigorate the public sphere at the beginning of the twenty-first century. We invite proposals that take up notions of “public” in a variety of ways, pointing to the critically generative and fraught aspects of the term as it has been adopted within performance studies.

The conference will theorize the relationship between performance, “official” public culture (public culture framed and sanctioned by state and/or corporate institutions), and the production of what Michael Warner calls “counter-publics” (social formations developed in opposition to the discourses and interests of the official public sphere). As such, it will explore the coming together of individuals as a social totality – as a community, nation, organization, etc. – and the enactment of public as a form of social activism, as a means of rehearsing, querying, and producing alternative forms of local and global citizenship. In both contexts, performance has the potential to frame affective and critically nuanced responses to public events, issues and crises and thus to model politically and ethically engaged forms of public life. The conference also seeks to problematize the idea of “publics” as it has been applied to performance by exploring the limitations of this term and the kinds of social exclusions that it often has been used to rationalize.

Guiding questions will include: How are we hailed by various publics, and how does this shape our behaviors and social interactions? How are publics spatially and temporally constituted? In what ways do publics participate in forms of activism, civic engagement, and “poetic world-making” (Warner)? What affects and effects are produced by such utopian interventions? Our discussion of these issues will reflect the vibrant history of urban intervention and “public spacing” movements in Toronto in which artists and activists have worked together to change the shape of our shared local and civic spaces.

56th Oberhausen Shortfilm Festival
29 April – 4 May 2009 – Oberhausen/Germany

Oberhausen once again invites those with the courage to venture something new to submit their films. The organizers are on the lookout for exceptional works to present at the 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, taking place from 29 April to 4 May 2010 in Oberhausen.
The entry form and regulations of the 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen can be downloaded here.

http://www.kurzfilmtage.de/en/submission.html
The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen is one of the major international crossroads for the short form, unique in the range of forms and genres it presents to the public, and particularly well known for its spotlight on experiments.
In short film, anything is possible: formally, content-wise, or aesthetically. Hard to pin down, extremely open – and for that reason endlessly fascinating – short film remains an inexhaustible reservoir from which cinema, television, Internet and even the museum cull new visual languages. Oberhausen’s competitions are equally open to artistic and cinematic trends, they are exhibitions as well as film programmes. The festival is always looking for works that defy tradition, that have the courage to try out something new.
Oberhausen stands for short distances, intensive discussions, sold-out theatres and plenty of opportunities to make contacts. The four competitions, featuring some 140 new films and videos from all around the world, attract television programme editors as well as curators, festival representatives and journalists. Films vie for some 40,000 euros in prize money. The main award of the festival is the Grand Prize of the City of Oberhausen, which includes a grant of 7,500 euros, in the International Competition. A 5,000-euro prize awaits the winner of the German Competition. Other honours include the 2,500-euro ARTE Award for a European short film and the 3sat Promotional Award, likewise for 2,500 euros.

Call for entries
Deadline: 7 November 2009
Oudeis 
Digital, Electronic and Media Art Symposium: “Trapped in Freedom”
5.-12 December 2009 – Le Vigan , France

Call for: a video exhibition and a temporary and free editing workshop
It is by chance, in a dead street’s far end that we faced a white padded door, opaque windows secured by bars and a turned off neon. Trapped in Freedom, the inscritpion was unlit, we could imagine it shining in the night a deep red and evocative light.
This sentence questionned us all the more we didn’t know this place’s nature. A one evening peculiar cabaret drawn from a David Lynch imagination, a libertine meeting place, rare liquors and cigars club… Anyway, this place seemed contained in its wording an entire paradox, one of a sensual pleasure, assumed, shown and restrained to this area, condensed behind the walls and hidden from prying eyes. This paradox was for the more obvious that the street was isolated, empty, but close to a wide and passing road. As if the answer or possibility for an emancipated freedom was actually just before our eyes. An obvious fact so strong that it cannot be assumed or seen as real.
It is this exact feeling which this place was emiting, an unrealistic atmosphere, a suspended time, a breach given to the onlooker in an innocent way, still tantalizing. No way between an assumed freedom, the idealized one, the return to nature, the emancipation from the powerful, the ethical, racial, social and political conflicts anihilation…
Live freedom as a release of burdens due to our environment. To focus on a will, a space peculiar to oneself, to individualities… To adopt freedom, take it fully, means to seize new spaces, to make new choices…
And yet the idea is not that simple. Freedom is a delicate notion and value, fascinating, unpredictable. As for who takes some liberty may take it off others, who enjoys freedom may loose a secured framework, a set of references and foundings, who wants to be free may be put in danger because of his/her own choices. Trapped in Freedom synthesizes the paradox of a dear and desired state at the same time feared and mostly let in an utopic idea condition.
Any social project is based on consensus and thereof asks for new definitions of individual liberties while arising new ones relative to a global, general and becoming homogenic corps.
Oudeis, a cultural organization in Le Vigan (France), has decided to dedicate its coming
Digital, Electronic and Media Art Symposium on this issue. Thus, several exhibits will take place in town in different places from the 5th to 13th december 2009. There are two types of
call for proposal for two specific projects.
First, a video exhibition. Oudeis invites all artists interested in the issue Trapped in Freedom to send us a proposal and short bio.
The second project open to participants is a temporary and free editing workshop. Temporary because it will last only the time of the Symposium, free because it will be nomad and will be moved from place to place to mix contents. A silkscreen printing workshop will be set and an edition will be publish, with critical contents, poems, analysis and esthetics
statements, drawings, photographies, collages…
All produced in real time, in the manner of performance, in front of the public.

Call for Papers, Performances, Films and Machines

Love hotels. Swinger club design. Phallic architecture. The gentrification of Times Square, kicking out all the peep shows, and similar anti-sex gentrifications and battles. Kids making out in the back seats of cars, and people fucking in parks. Housing for unconventional family units. Augmented reality sex spaces. Furniture for sex. Room design. Creating new environments. Gendered spaces, and gender in the creation of space. Architecture by women, and the potential for the construction of a feminist architecture. Actively gender-segregated spaces, as both empowering and oppressing. Queer-segregated spaces, similarly. The acts of human intimacy, sexual intercourse, and procreation in weightlessness and the extreme environments of space. Erotic space tourism. The visibility of sex, genders, and relationship structures in various spaces. Spaces of sexual control and permissiveness. Sexual subcultures as spaces of social division. Spatial enforcement of relationship structures and gendered power structures. Geotagging as an expression for kinks. The sexual reading of architecture, especially around historical and modern styles and concerning ornament and detail. The eroticization of buildings — architecture for whorehouses, the Las Vegas strip, people who want to sleep with buildings. What makes design “sexy” and the construction of “sexy” as an architectural category as a comment on late heteronormativity. The terabyte gloryhole. The space in which the male gaze occurs and the space it defines.
Heterosexism, misogyny, and heterocentrism reinforce the dominant cultural structure and contribute to the oppression of large sectors of society. Sexuality, sex, gender, and related constructs are heavily implicated in and reproduce space, and are also constrained and restricted by it and by heterosexism. Let’s explore this space of interactions — send us your ideas for talks, performances, films and machines.

Deadline: 15 November 2009
Zeppelin 2009 – Festival of Sound Projects 
10-12 December 2009 – Barcelona/Spain

Zeppelin 2009 – Sounds of Power / Listening to Fear is dedicated to thinking about issues that have been insidiously encircling us for some time. We are concerned about signs that might suggest we’re going backwards in terms of hard-won social and intellectual achievements and freedoms. This concern led us to pose the following series of questions, which we hope will go some way to inspiring the pieces presented:
1. What does it mean to receive and/or give an order?
2. The verbs ‘obey’ and ‘hear’ are known to be closely linked. How, then, should we view a society that appears increasingly ready to obey without stopping to think? What link is there between obeying and believing?
3. Why do we have a need for absolute truths, even where we know it’s impossible? Why do we think we already know everything? Do we need to learn techniques or not? Why do we think anyone can do anything? Shouldn’t we respect the ability to do things? To what extent is the term ‘art’ relevant or not?
4. In what sense have we moved from alienation at work to alienation in every, or almost every, sphere in life? Are we losing our awareness of alienation?
5. What does it mean to talk about control in the name of security? Don’t we feel safe? Why do we allow things to be done in the name of democracy that we’d condemn in a dictatorship?
6. Does a welfare society mean a growth society? (Cage said: “I don’t know if life is characterised by progress.”) Why do we think we live in the best of worlds?
7. What role or roles do sounds play in a welfare society and a growth society? Are they related to a loss of privacy? To what extent have neighbours become a new system of control in the hands of the state?
8. How do we view the fact that our instruments for organising sounds are linked to instruments designed to control? Is there a relationship between organising and controlling?
9. At a time when words are being chipped away at until they have a new meaning set down by law, and people who disagree with the criteria of others risk being branded as intolerant, how can we unmask this warped language without discrediting things further?
We invite people interested in sound to think about these questions and send us their sound works.
The pieces will be played through a system of eight loudspeakers on 10, 11 and 12 December 2009 at the Barcelona Centre for Contemporary Culture.

L’art de transmettre
Enseignement des arts, transmission, éducation populaire en analyse
A l’heure de jetabilité à outrance, il est urgent de refonder un art de transmettre. Alors que Mouvement consacre dans son dernier numéro un dossier à cette question, Mouvement.net vous propose de poursuivre la réflexion avec un ensemble de contributions en ligne.

Senior Artists’ Research Project: A group of Canadian arts organizations, representing actors, choreographers, composers, dancers, directors, musicians, visual artists and writers, is looking for ways to do more to support Canada’s senior artists (that is, those who are 65 and over).

They need your help. By participating in this first-ever assessment of the situation and needs of senior artists in Canada, you can help them to better understand artists’ needs and interests in areas such as artistic activity, health care, housing, retirement, financial issues, community connections and social networks. To take the survey, visit http://www.seniorartists.ca/.
