Fronteras – José Luis Torres

Combien de frontières y a-t-il ? Plus d’une? Beaucoup. Autant qu’il y a d’individus.
Les limites sont fausses, les individus ne le sont peut-être pas – pour peu que l’individu demeure le même au bout de nombreuses années. Comme un cosmopolite qui traverse des frontières parce qu’il ne les aime pas…

Appel de textes .dpi no 16 : Thématique « Résis-temps »

Date limite des propositions : le 18 septembre 2009.
Texte final (environ 2250 mots) à remettre le 19 octobre 2009.
Sortie fin octobre 2009

Résis-temps, résistant, résistance au temps, à une mémoire imposée, à un oubli forcé, à un flux constant. On résiste contre un système, on résiste pour une idée, un idéal, mais face au temps, comment résiste-t-on ? La résistance en art se décline sous de nombreuses formes, l’art résis-temps peut créer jusqu’à une manière de voir et de concevoir la place de l’art pour et dans la société. Mais aujourd’hui par quels moyens déclinons-nous l’art résis-temps ? Ce numéro propose de retracer un panorama de ce type d’art à travers un grand nombre de médium et de disciplines artistiques. Dans le cinéma expérimental ou documentaire par exemple, certains films vont ainsi chercher à inscrire des images oubliées dans l’inconscient collectif, proposant, par exemple, une « mémoire obstinée » comme les films de Patricio Guzman. L’art résis-temps, c’est alors ne pas laisser passer, ne pas laisser l’oubli s’imposer en mettant des images sur une mémoire interdite. Dans l’art vidéo, certaines œuvres vont, quant à elles, mettre à l’épreuve les spectateurs en effaçant toute référence temporelle, telle que la narration, ou tout repère chronologique pour imposer un temps cyclique d’images et de sons qui se répètent dans l’infini que permet la vidéo. L’art résis-temps c’est alors proposer un temps sans fond, c’est ouvrir la porte à un impossible saisissement. L’art résis-temps devient aussi le moyen ici de sortir du flux comme ce que proposent certaines œuvres hypermédiatiques prônant la lenteur ou le laisser-aller à travers l’espace rhizomique pour mieux accuser le flux constant qui modèle notre consommation du Web, mais aussi, plus généralement, notre manière d’être au monde. Ces exemples ne sont que quelques unes des nombreuses pistes qu’ouvre l’idée d’art résis-temps, n’hésitez pas à nous en proposer d’autres toujours autour de la même alliance qui fait la particularité de .dpi : art, femmes et technologies.

Nous encourageons les théoriciennes ou artistes inspirées par ce thème à nous faire parvenir un résumé d’une intention de texte (300 mots) accompagné d’une courte biographie (100 mots).
Le comité de rédaction de .dpi tient à préciser que seuls les textes d’auteurEs seront acceptés.
Tous les types de textes sont bienvenus (essai, critique, entrevue)

Envoyer vos textes à: programmation at dpi.studioxx.org

Appel de candidatures de commissaire invité(e) pour la 12e édition
:: Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal lance son appel de commissaire invité pour la 12e édition de sa biennale internationale de photographie contemporaine qui se tiendra en septembre 2011::
Depuis 1989, à tous les deux ans, Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal produit un événement culturel international, arrimé sur les enjeux contemporains reliés à la photographie. Avec ses expositions, sa publication et son colloque, la biennale sert de catalyseur aux artistes, aux spécialistes de l’image et au grand public.
L’événement vise à promouvoir les diverses tendances de la photographie contemporaine auprès d’un large public en concrétisant des échanges internationaux entre les photographes, le public, les conservateurs, les commissaires, les médias et les collectionneurs. Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal travaille de concert avec une grande diversité de partenaires incluant des artistes, des musées, des galeries universitaires, des centres d’artistes pour présenter une série d’expositions solos réparties à travers la ville transformant ainsi Montréal en une vaste exposition de groupe, à la fois cohérente et stimulante, autour d’un concept phare.
Depuis 2003, pour chacune des éditions de sa biennale, Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal confie l’élaboration d’une nouvelle thématique à un commissaire invité. Toutes les expositions, le colloque et la publication sont conçus autour d’un concept unique. Pour plus de détails concernant les thématiques des éditions précédentes, l’historique et le mandat de l’organisme, consultez notre site Web au www.moisdelaphoto.com.
Le commissaire invité pour l’édition de septembre 2011, devra proposer une thématique à la fois novatrice et audacieuse, propre à singulariser la biennale montréalaise sur la scène internationale tout en stimulant la réflexion et en rendant accessible au grand public des thèmes et des problématiques issues de l’art contemporain en général.

for our upcoming 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons for our 4,200 square foot
temporary exhibition space.

and the other two time periods as a series of solo or smaller group
exhibitions (with the Gallery divided into two or three spaces).

The curator will: research Yukon arts/artists and curate the exhibits. This
will require traveling to the Yukon, selecting artists, identifying private
and other public/gallery collections for exhibition loan(s), selecting
exhibition themes and topics, developing the exhibition layout and design,
and writing curatorial introductions or an essay. Curators must work with
YAC to ensure press, printing, and education/other programme deadlines are met.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: PIXXELPOINT 2009, NEW MEDIA

ENTRY FORM (PDF): http://www.pixxelpoint.org/entryform2009.pdf
DEADLINE: September 30th 2009, arrival date.

Once Upon a Time in the West

We keep on talking about “new media”, while in actually fact these media are anything but new. The Net is twenty years old, if we start counting from the advent of the Web, forty if we start from Arpanet. Spacewar!, the first videogame ever, is more or less the same age. Virtual worlds are the updated, lighter versions of a technology acclaimed as “the future” when Second Life programmers were still in diapers; social networks are the bastard sons of Fidonet. As for the computer, it is younger than Lord Byron, but certainly not than his daughter Ada.

Once upon a time there was the electronic frontier, an abandonware myth which was able to regenerate itself thanks to the continuous advance of the frontier itself. Like in space, in technological progress there’s no ocean at the end of the trip. But, unlike the space race, the race to the next technology is endless, and endlessness is boring.

Yet, while we got used to innovation and the day-after rhetorics, we have never got used to the loss of the past. We look back to what was new yesterday and is trash today, and we feel a deep sense of nostalgia. Commodore 64 and 386dx. The first Apple Macintosh. Bulletin Board Systems. Animated gifs. Glittering images. Web buttons. Super Mario. Doom. Napster. Jennicam. Mosaic. ASCII art. MIDIs and MOOs. Not to mention VHS, vinyl, audio cassettes, cathode tubes, portable radios, faxes. It is the kind of nostalgia that we feel for a relative who died young, once the pain abates: you are left wondering what kind of man he would have been. Or for someone that, once grown up, does not live up to his or her promise. Sometimes nostalgia develops into historical research, and becomes media archeology. We don’t look for the technologies that we once loved, but those we have never seen in action.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

This is an open call for submissions for artists who are living and working in Canada to exhibit in San Francisco.

The exhibition will showcase the work of 6 – 8 emerging Canadian multidisciplinary visual artists. We will bring together work that speaks of contemporary art trends of the country. The exhibition will be mounted during a very interesting time in Canada, the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver (February 12 – 28, 2010). We believe that during this time, some of the stereotypes, symbols, themes, and political workings of Canada will be disseminated into U.S. media, giving a local audience a backdrop for the work that we are showcasing.

This exhibition will be held at The Lab, a not for profit gallery located in San Francisco’s Mission district. www.thelab.org

– Submissions are due September 20, 2009. All submissions should include
approximately 10 images of work as well as an artist statement and Resume.

– Digital images should be submitted as .jpg no larger than 8×10 inches at 72 dpi.

– Video work should be submitted on DVD, or by email send url (for video uploaded to a ftp site or video share site such as Vimeo, Youtube).

– Proposals are accepted. Artists submitting proposals should view floor plan of the gallery located on the website. For this exhibition we have secured both the front and main galleries.

– Submissions can be sent by email or through postage. Please send any submissions to thelabcanadashow [arobas] gmail [point] com or:

Kevin Bertram
4538 Rue Clark Apt # 11
Montreal Quebec
H2T 2T4

– PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE LAB FOR ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING
THE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. EMAIL THE CURATORS (JASON/KEVIN)
AT THE EMAIL AT thelabcanadashow [arobas] gmail [point] com.

– If accepted to the exhibition artists are encouraged (but not required) to attend the opening and oversee the installation of their work.

– The curators of the show are attempting to gather grants and fund raise to help bare travel and shipping costs for the artists. However, ultimately, each artist is responsible for shipping his/her work as well any travel costs.

– Accepted artists are encouraged to apply for travel grants at Canada Council for the Arts and other institutions that support the arts.

Torrance Art Museum invites proposals from Curators

Call for Proposals:
On Gonzo Curating

I was interested to read recently, on oncurating.org and at newcurator.com, some of their reader’s responses to the questions regarding topics that should be raised and what the purpose of a museum is, respectively. While I feel that there is space and time enough in the world to cover many areas and to be many things the bottom line must remain actual exhibitions/curatorial projects.. The last thing we need is to become so academic that we end up talking to ourselves about ourselves only – as can be seen in some arenas. This is not to downplay the importance of a dialogue and the conceptualizing of our field but more as a warning not to become too hermetic in our relationship to the world at large. A move towards self-reflexivity in our programming and a determined drive to ask harder questions about our own practices as an institutional art site are welcome, as is an extended scope of possibilities within curatorial approaches – which many curators and institutions are addressing admirably in various countries and that we also can contribute to.

To engage others, to become more collaborative and interactive with outside curators and professionals worldwide, to see our programming develop more hand-in-hand with a global enquiry and with curators in different contexts with different aims and agendas, alongside fulfilling our obligation to visually and intellectually engage a myriad of different types of visitor, can perhaps be sought via different routes, for example a form of crowd-sourcing? This is one potential approach we at TAM would like to follow up on…

To this end I would like to invite artists and curators (or anyone else for that matter) to present project proposals to the Torrance Art Museum. My feeling is that as a small museum of contemporary art our strength lies in our ability to react to moments in art, quickly (for a museum) and efficiently, within a limited budget. We cannot compete with large museum blockbuster shows but we can respond to the ideas referencing the role of art, curators, museums, etc within the world. What better way to do this than by actually offering a site for the production of some of these projects that deal with our concerns directly. TAM should be an artist’s museum, a curator’s museum and our audience’s museum for active engagement – so if this strikes a chord with you then feel free to send proposals to us. We will respond to them all and will shortlist those that we respond the strongest to (whatever that subjectively means) and try to schedule a number of these for the 2011/2012 programming.

We make no claims for this being an original idea, nor innovative, nor groundbreaking and we have no real idea how this experiment will succeed or fail but we feel it is worth finding out – so…proposals on a disc please to:

Torrance Art Museum
c/o Max Presneill, Curator
3320 Civic Center
Torrance, CA 90509, USA

About the Museum
The Torrance Art Museum is a small contemporary art museum located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. It has a vibrant and fast paced programming schedule that covers the latest developments in current art regionally, nationally and internationally, as well as innovative curatorial projects featuring both emerging and established artists.

ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS N°10, KUNSTRAUM KREUZBERG / BETHANIEN, Berlin

ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS N°10
Deadline : OCTOBER 15TH 2009

December 12th 2009 – January 2nd 2010

In the context of ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS a selection of drawings by international artists will be presented anonymously at KUNSTRAUM KREUZBERG / BETHANIEN. The general exhibition preparation starts with an international call for entries on the Internet. No demands are being made; age, biography or heritage of the originator do not play any role for the selection.

The artist’s anonymity can be lifted by means of purchasing a drawing for the symbolic unit sales price of 150 EUR. The buyer can take his drawing right off the wall and s/he is then told the name of its author. The empty space the drawing leaves behind will be marked with the artist‘s full name and country of origin.

The given unit sales price should not be seen as a real market price, but as a place holder for any conceivable amount of money. Because the works are from both established artists and laymen, it is expected from the viewer to draw his own line between art and not-art. Common, art specific mechanisms like the importance of an artists` ego, price formation or prepared qualities which can be referred to a specific art context, should be reversed in this exhibition in an experimental way: the artists engage themselves to put their own person into the background for the benefit of the actual product, their artistic work.
