-Avoir un projet novateur en cours de développement ;
-Ne soumettre qu’un projet par édition ;

Invitation à participer à
La Minute vidéo 2017

Québec, le 31 janvier 2016 — Folie/Culture propose à tous les artistes professionnels ou amateurs, membres, proches et intervenants du milieu social, de s’investir dans une expérience de réflexion particulière : réaliser une vidéo d’une durée d’une minute produite sur le thème POST-.

Il semble que le mot « post- » soit la nouvelle coqueluche dans le fabuleux univers des concepts. Ce qui apparait dépassé et vieillot est désormais qualifié de « post- » : post-vérité, post-désinstitutionnalisé, post-traumatique, post-avant-garde, post-colonialisme, etc. Nous sommes englués dans l’hégémonie du « post- » alors que ce préfixe est sensé marquer une rupture radicale, un changement de paradigme. Le « post- » ne nomme plus la nouveauté, il condamne seulement le passé et nous entraîne dans un cul-de-sac.

Folie/Culture vous convie non pas à l’ère de « l’après-post- », mais plutôt à l’ère de l’a-POST-. Affranchissons-nous du POST- et renommons le présent ! Artistes et fous, à vos armes ! Que chaque proposition soit un manifeste de construction du réel, qu’il donne corps à une esthétique, à un imaginaire social, à un ébranlement des certitudes mortifères.

Les Minutes vidéo sélectionnées seront projetées à l’occasion d’une soirée publique dans le cadre de la programmation 2017-2018. Pour participer, vous avez deux options :

OPTION A : Proposer une fiction, un documentaire ou une vidéo d’art

Produire une vidéo abordant le thème POST-
Forme : un seul plan-séquence
Durée : 1 minute, en continu
Formats acceptés : .mov ou .avi non compressé
Attention : Aucun montage image, sonore ou générique n’est permis
OPTION B : Proposer une vidéo d’animation ou un gif animé !

Produire une vidéo d’animation ou un gif animé abordant le thème POST-
Durée : 1 minute
Seule la musique originale ou libre de droits est admise
Formats acceptés : .mov ou .avi non compressé, ou .gif

Date limite de dépôt : 31 mars 2017

Faites-nous parvenir votre vidéo accompagnée de vos coordonnées par Internet via un lien Dropbox ou WeTransfer, ou par la poste à l’adresse suivante :

335, rue Saint-Joseph Est, bureau 520, Québec (Québec) G1K 3B4

Appel de dossier 2017-2018 /
Prochaine date limite 1er mars 2017/

Implanté à Lévis, Regart, centre d’artistes en art actuel assure, depuis 1986, une présence dynamique des arts visuels actuels auprès des publics des territoires de Chaudière-Appalaches et de Québec.

Présentée en galerie, mais aussi extra-muros, la programmation de Regart met l’accent sur des productions relevant de l’hybridation des formes d’expression et de l’expérimentation, tant dans les processus de création que dans la présentation des expositions, où la qualité artistique et l’importance du discours théorique sont mises de l’avant.

Orientation artistique 2017-2018
Quelle est la place de la diversité dans le centre d’artistes ?

Des événements politiques récents, d’ici et d’ailleurs, mettent en lumière des situations fortes où des acquis fondamentaux concernant l’équité, l’égalité et l’inclusion sont ébranlés, sont remis en question. La réalité explose, se fait multiple, fait place à de nouvelles perspectives et transforme l’écosystème de nos sociétés. Cette atmosphère bouillonnante et dynamisante est au cœur des conversations quotidiennes et des préoccupations. C’est pourquoi Regart s’est demandé comment ces réflexions pouvaient être rendues visibles à l’intérieur des structures actuelles et des orientations artistiques d’un centre d’artistes. Comment faire de Regart un vase communicant entre ces réalités vibrantes et une structure de diffusion des arts visuels actuels? Comment pouvons-nous contribuer à imaginer un espace de réflexion où plusieurs sensibilités, qu’elles soient sociales, humaines, ethniques politiques ou autres, puissent se rencontrer, s’entrechoquer et alimenter des discussions sur l’écologie de notre monde actuel?

La programmation 2017-2018 est donc dédiée aux artistes qui habitent ces préoccupations. Que ce soit de la pluralité des discours, des positions ethnographiques, politiques, humaines et sociales; que ce soit des artistes qui font œuvre de leur handicap ou qui traitent du handicap dans leur pratique; que ce soit des pratiques qui revendiquent des positions sociales engagées dans l’inclusion et des marges ; que ce soit des artistes qui ne se sentent pas en marge, mais qui le deviennent dans le regard des autres; ou tout simplement que ce soit dans l’apparition d’une réalité ou d’une sensibilité qui semble improbable dans l’espace de diffusion d’un centre d’artistes, sans créer de division, Regart souhaite recevoir des propositions qui contribuent à enrichir ces positions.  Sans considération hiérarchique quant à la question de diversité, Regart souhaite proposer et présenter des artistes et des pratiques artistiques qui parlent de plusieurs réalités visibles ou invisibles, et parfois même occultées par le discours et les modes en place.

Suite au succès retentissant de la programmation des expositions collectives et des activités des membres du centre combinées à la programmation régulière, Regart reconnaît l’importance et le potentiel de réanimer cette vive et inspirante possibilité d’un centre d’artistes d’être un lieu de rencontres, de mise en réseaux et de dialogue entre les artistes, les œuvres, les membres impliqués, l’équipe du centre et son public. Mais plus encore cette année d’établir un dialogue avec une diversité d’approches dans le discours ou dans la forme de présentation des arts visuels, en prenant le grand terme de la diversité dans son sens optimal, positif et inclusif.

C’est pourquoi, pour sa programmation 2016-2017, Regart souhaite développer une série de quatre expositions individuelles, collectives ou projets de commissaires. Nous vous invitons donc, artistes et commissaires, à nous envoyer vos dossiers pour développer, avec nous, cette orientation unique dans les régions de Chaudière-Appalaches et de Québec.

Les artistes sont libres de présenter des oeuvres inédites ou déjà produites. Il est à noter cependant que nous ne considérerons pas les projets ayant déjà été présentés dans les trois dernières années dans les régions de Chaudière-Appalaches et de Québec.

Les commissaires qui travaillent autour de la question des thèmes de la diversité comme structure de leurs recherches sont également invités à nous présenter un projet d’exposition composé d’un maximum de quatre artistes de leur choix.

Les artistes et commissaires sont invités à nous présenter leurs dossiers en considérant qu’une proposition de conférences, de table ronde et de manifestation particulière pourrait être mise en place comme support au projet.
Vous êtes auparavant invités à visiter le www.centreregart.org afin d’obtenir de plus amples informations sur le centre, sur ses missions et mandats, le contexte géographique dans lequel il s’inscrit, les plans de salles (galerie, Vitrine des membres, centre de documentation et atelier commun) mais aussi le territoire autour du centre.

Afin de faciliter le traitement des demandes par le comité de sélection, vous êtes priés de nous faire parvenir votre proposition par courriel à l’adresse suivante: programmation [point] regart [arobas] gmail [point] com.

Pour répondre à l’appel de dossier, votre envoi devra comporter :

Pour les artistes :

Un seul document PDF rassemblant les documents suivants:

-un projet d’exposition et la façon dont il s’ancre dans votre recherche et votre démarche ainsi qu’une annexe incluant les détails techniques du projet (deux pages et demi maximum);

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Toronto, 9-12 August 2017
Deadline for Submissions March 3, 2017
http://naisa.ca/opportunities/calls-for-submissions/ties-call-for-submissions/

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA), the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) and the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) are pleased to announce the 11th edition of the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES), and delighted to welcome Quebec sound artist Chantal Dumas as Keynote Speaker this year. Dumas is a highly respected sound artist who explores the medium of sound through the production of audio fiction and docufiction, sound installation, composition and sound design.

The symposium will take place in Toronto from 9–12 August 2017 at the Ernest Balmer Studio and at the Michael J. Baker Studio in Toronto’s historic Distillery District.

We are now inviting proposals for papers, lecture-recitals, special sessions of 2 to 4 panellists, compositions and performances to be presented at TIES 2017 (submission deadline: 3 March 2017).

TIES is a unique point of convergence for a growing international community of diverse electroacoustic (EA) practitioners. We look forward to seeing you at TIES 2017, where you can explore and share diverse perspectives on electroacoustic and sound art research and practice, while expanding your artistic and professional network.

General Information

The 2017 symposium is the eleventh annual iteration of this important opportunity for exchange between diverse EA communities. In recent years, a number of themes have emerged, among them: creative and collaborative practices, curation, research and analysis, algorithmic processes, videomusic and intermedia practices, electronic ensembles and live coding.

As in preceding years, the symposium leads directly into the main concert weekend of the annual Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art. This 19th edition of Sound Travels explores emerging trends alongside established traditions in electroacoustic music. At the heart of TIES 2017 will be a Keynote Lecture by Chantal Dumas, one of Sound Travels’ featured artists. TIES and Sound Travels events will be presented using NAISA’s real-time spatialization system.

The gallery will not return your submission – please do not send original artworks or valuable materials.   Given the large number of submissions received by the gallery, formal letters of reply will only be issued to proposals of immediate interest.

Exhibitions are generally six weeks in length.  An opening is held to introduce the work to the public.  Artists are also invited to give an illustrated lecture on their work in conjunction with the University of Lethbridge Faculty of Fine Art during the academic year.  Other special events (workshops, panel discussions, etc.) are considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Southern Alberta Art Gallery pays CARFAC fees, shipping and insurance, and often seeks funding to produce catalogues for the exhibition.  All publications, including our quarterly newsletter GALLERY (which discusses and reproduces work by exhibiting artists along with other programming), are exchanged with other institutions in Canada and abroad.

The Southern Alberta Art Gallery fosters the work of contemporary artists who challenge boundaries, encourages broad public engagement and promotes awareness and exploration of artistic expression.  Our work extends to local, national and international communities.

exhibitions engage with an array of approaches to contemporary
aesthetics, and cover a broad scope of conceptual, formal, socio-
political and cultural questions. We welcome proposals for solo and
group exhibitions, as well as performances, curatorial projects,
collaborations, lectures, workshops and other events.

Deadline: March 1, 2017

Modern Fuel is committed to supporting emerging professional artists,
and as such we pay professional fees in accordance with the CARFAC
guidelines. A professional artist is someone who:

Main Gallery

Modern Fuel’s programming strives to reflect the diversity of aesthetic
practices both regionally and extra-regionally, according to submission

and broader socio-cultural contexts.

State of Flux

The State of Flux Project Room accepts applications from artists in the
Kingston region (with a perimeter defined by Zone 4 according to the
OAC Exhibition Assistance Program). The State of Flux has the same

Call for Submissions for Art Spin
Toronto – various sites, Summer 2017

Art Spin is gearing up for its ninth season this summer and is looking for exciting and imaginative submissions for its 2017 programming starting in June.

Art Spin has been operating professionally as an arts presenter since 2009, activating decommissioned venues and unique public spaces to produce large scale group exhibitions along with curated bicycle-led art tours, showcasing a wide range of newly commissioned art programming in unique site-specific settings.

Most recently Art Spin produced in/future: a transformative art experience, the highly acclaimed 11 day multidisciplinary art and music festival at Ontario Place this past September. Led by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta, artists and independent curators, Art Spin is driven by a strong sense of commitment and passion for presenting contemporary artworks in unusual, everyday spaces in order to make its audience’s experience with art more engaging and exciting.

Art Spin’s bicycle led art tours have become one of the city’s most anticipated events of the summer, attracting a diverse and enthusiastic audience of at least 350 people per tour. Programming is varied, consisting of commissioned, multi-disciplinary works which range from art performances to installations.

Central to Art Spin’s mandate and a big part of what makes our tours so impactful is our commitment to transplanting encounters with art from conventional, institutional spaces into more alternative and public environments. We believe that encounters with art are made more meaningful and demonstrably engaging when they are experienced in a communal context, in unique site-specific locations.

In past years we have commissioned projects that have taken place in parking structures, empty lots, public parks, vacant factories and warehouses, alleyways, churches, schoolyards, community spaces, hockey rinks and construction sites.

With this in mind Art Spin is looking for project submissions that are able to respond to their urban and cultural environment. Submissions for art projects from all disciplines (visual arts, installation, sculpture, film & video, new media, performance art, dance, theatre and music etc.) will be accepted but only those that embody a site-specific vision will be reviewed. This can mean work that responds to an environment in either a geographic, architectural, cultural, historical, or personal manner. Submissions that rely on a gallery type setting will not be considered.

HOW TO SUBMIT:
Art Spin is seeking submissions from individual artists and collectives working in a variety of disciplines including but not limited to; sculpture, installation, film & video, electronic & kinetic work, painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, performance art, dance, music, and theatre.
We are eager to receive submissions for new projects and are also open to reviewing existing works so long as they speak to our curatorial theme (see guidelines).

Applicants must read the Art Spin submission guidelines and submit a completed submission package. The full and application form and guidelines, including artist fees, can be found at
http://www.artspin.ca/submissions

Deadline: Monday March 6th (11:59pm)

We highly recommend having a look at past examples of projects featured on Art Spin tours if you have never attended one, please visit:

If you have any further questions about the submissions process, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info [arobas] artspin [point] ca.

7a*md8 CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

DEADLINE: February 15, 2017

Toronto Performance Art Collective, presenter of the biennial 7a*11d
International Festival of Performance Art, is currently seeking proposals from
Canadian and International artists for a series of events during our « off year » that
examine contemporary developments in the relationship between performance
art and new media. In 2017, we will present 7a*md8, a 3-part series that
considers examines how new media impacts the direction of performance art
activity. Our programming will feature performances for the camera, performances
for new/social media platforms and a live streamed international performance
event that can accommodate artists and audiences with limited mobility (e.g.
those who find it difficult to travel because they are living in remote locations,
living with disabilities, constrained by domestic obligations, etc.). http://7a-
11d.ca/

*Performance for the Camera – Pre-recorded (Max. 10 min)
Works in this program will showcase a diverse range of contemporary artists and
practices and reflect a variety of communities and circumstances (e.g. rural,
generational, racialized, queer and transgendered, differently abled). In the past
few years we have seen how the camera has played a major role in bringing
attention to narratives, events and bodies marginalized from the general public.
The artists selected for this series will speak to our relationship to media as a
form of accessible communication in the face of unevenly permeable borders.
The venue for this event will be an outdoor public screening, which may place
some restrictions on the content selected.

*New/Social Media Performance – Live
Works in this events will highlight how contemporary artists use social media
platforms to develop new performance forms and to find new ways of connecting
with audiences. For artists working in performance, video-capture platforms like
Snapchat, Periscope, Vine and Instagram provide an instant and accessible
medium for documentation and dissemination. This allows, among other
possibilities, for ongoing, cumulative performance practices that can record
everyday situations in home and work spaces that used to be inaccessible to a
general public. These projects will be hosted on 7a*11d’s website and social
media platforms, and featured at a public launch in Toronto.

*Media = Mobility – Live
Our vision for this live streaming project is to feature a total of 13 artists from
across Canada (10 provinces, 3 territories) along with 5 additional artists situated
across the globe. This one-day event of simultaneous, serial and/or overlapping
performances (length variable between 15 minutes – 12 hours) will include a
strong focus on artists who identify as being Indigenous or Mtis, ethnically
diverse, deaf or disabled, queer or transgendered, and non-urban. As 2017
marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation, this program is intended to
manifest a vision of the possibilities for networked culture to bridge cultural and
geographical barriers and create a space of connection and productive collision.

We pay artist fees that meet or exceed CARFAC guidelines.

**Application Guidelines
Please complete the following information, indicating which section(s) you are
applying for and save it as a single PDF and submit 10 images of your work

STARTS Prize 2017

20,000 euros await the winners of the STARTS Prize 2017.

Entries Are Now Being Accepted

This is an open call for entries in conjunction with an initiative launched by the European Commission: STARTS. The name stands for innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology and the ARTS.

Two prizes – €20,000 each – will be bestowed this year:One for artistic exploration and projects in which the artistic approach has significant potential to influence or change the way technology is deployed, developed or perceived, and

One for innovative cooperative ventures teaming up industry/technology and art (and cultural & creative sectors in general) in ways that open up new paths for innovation.

This competition specifically seeks:Trailblazing forms of collaboration and projects essentially characterized by both technology and art; strictly artistically or strictly technologically oriented projects are not what STARTS is looking for.
Any and all artistic works and practices having to do with innovation in the areas of technology, business and/or society. This competition is not limited to a particular genre such as media art and digital art.

All forms of technological and scientific research that are inspired by art or in which artists are integrated as catalysts of new ways of seeing things. This includes but is not limited to information & communications technology.
Artists or artists’ collectives, creative professionals, researchers and companies throughout the world. This competition is not limited to citizens of EU-member states.

A project may be submitted for prize consideration simultaneously to the STARTS competition as well as a Prix Ars Electronica category (Computer Animation/Film/VFX, Digital Musics & Sound Art or Hybrid Art).
Several special events are being planned to honor and showcase the projects singled out for recognition with a STARTS Prize: Awards ceremony at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria in September 2017

empty pr(oe)misesSubmission deadline: March 1, 2017

museumofcontemporarycuts.org

How does one inhabit emptiness? There is a tension and struggle between the will of the space in preserving its void and the will of the forces that wish to occupy it. This conflict became the subject matter of conversation between the Director of EMST (National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens), Katerina Koskina, and curator Lanfranco Aceti after they shared their concerns for the realization of any exhibition starting from zero. These concerns are only magnified in the case of the opening of a new museum, as is the current situation of the EMST.

empty pr(oe)mises is a project conceived and curated by Lanfranco Aceti and Katerina Koskina for which artists are invited to visualize and localize the struggle between the promise of a future idea and the process of realization in the empty premise—the temporary exhibition space of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (EMST).

Thanks to Saskatchewan Arts Board and PAVED Arts for supporting this project

 

Information about the Site of the Residency

This 6 foot-deep hole was dug in 2012, with a 5-foot walkway circling a central mound of earth. This hole has been hollowed out of thick prairie grassland with roots dangling overhead. Since then this space has been subject to ongoing weather events like rain, snow, hail and wind. Various transformations have occurred due to gopher and swallow incursions, and larger animals like deer, foxes, skunks and coyotes that discovered this sheltered space.

A space such as this hole can be approached from the perspective of the Anthropocene and ecology, spirituality and burials, secrecy or revelations, history and agriculture, and metaphor and symbol. This land is especially significant in terms of the history of Saskatchewan since there is no evidence that it has ever been tilled.

 

Content of time / Information about the Residency

The premise of this residency is that new knowledge comes from the concentrated interaction of people with varying knowledge bases and perspectives. This hole in the ground is a possible site for conversation, contemplation, making sounds, reading out loud, or being silent. This is also about duration, about spending extended blocks of time surrounded by earth and sky, and one other person. This residency is open to anyone with an interest in exploring this experience regardless of age, artistic, educational or cultural background. Accessibility can be discussed.

This immersive experience provides an alternative model for participating in a residency. In this model the organizer of the residency is an active contributor with the participant in the entire process. In the Hole provides a context for looking directly at collaboration within an experiential perspective.

Vous êtes un artiste ou un professionnel étranger de la culture et séjournez à Paris dans le cadre de votre travail ? Vous pouvez déposer une demande de logement à la Cité internationale universitaire de Paris en ligne : http://workflow.ciup.fr/citeu/site/login.php

Certains logements sont spécifiquement adaptés à l’activité artistique : la Cité internationale dispose de deux ateliers-logements pour artistes plasticiens et six studios avec cabine insonorisée pour les musiciens. Les différentes maisons de la Cité internationale peuvent également accueillir des artistes et professionnels de la culture en fonction de la disponibilité de leurs logements (sans espace de travail). Le tarif des logements varient selon le type, le confort et la durée du séjour.

 Si votre nationalité est représentée par une maison de la Cité internationale, renseignez-vous auprès d’elle pour connaître la démarche à suivre. Cf. http://www.ciup.fr/> “les maisons”.

Si cette maison représentant votre nationalité n’a pas de disponibilité, votre demande pourra être transmise aux autres maisons de la CIUP, sous réserve de la validation de la demande par la CIUP.

Les statuts de la cité prévoient en effet que pour y être admis, la venue de l’artiste doit s’inscrire dans le cadre d’un projet précis soutenu institutionnellement (venue sur invitation d’une structure culturelle française, ou sur envoi d’une structure culturelle du pays de résidence de l’artiste, pour une réalisation spécifique). Cette institution doit soutenir financièrement le projet, et donc le séjour de l’artiste à Paris.

D’autre part, la cité prévoit dans ses statuts que les artistes soient étrangers ou en mobilité internationale.

Atelier Topaz – résidence 
Opasatika, Ontario, Canada

Le lieu
Situés au cœur de la forêt boréale, les Ateliers Topaz sont à la fois un lieu de retraite et un centre de création pour artistes, toutes disciplines confondues. L’endroit parfait pour la réflexion, l’évasion. Le groupement d’édifices fait 900 mètres carrés et repose sur 14 hectares face à la route Transcanadienne. Il donne sur un étang de deux hectares. Topaz c’est la « Route 66 » dans le nord de l’Ontario. L’endroit, modeste et nostalgique, rappelle aussi les grandes épopées de la colonisation francophone de l’Ontario. Ces studios de création ou cette résidence d’artistes, endroit idéal pour les arts visuels, sont situés au centre du Canada, à mi-chemin entre l’Atlantique et le Pacifique, là où les étoiles deviennent les topazes de la nuit.

Ce qu’on offre
D’abord l’espace et, l’espace de travail déterminés selon les besoins de l’artiste. Les espaces polyvalents permettent d’y faire de la peinture, de la sculpture, de l’installation, etc. L’atelier de menuiserie, le Bar à clou, est équipé des outils de base. Un magasin d’objets trouvés est disponible autant pour l’inspiration que pour l’utilisation dans une œuvre. Le peintre apporte ses pinceaux, le musicien son instrument et l’écrivain son ordi.

Les personnes qui séjournent aux Ateliers Topaz jouissent de l’accès à la cuisine et sont responsables de préparer leurs repas. Toutefois Laurent peut aussi leur cuisiner de petits plats typiquement canadiens-français aux besoins ou aux désirs. 

Topaz possède deux suites avec lit double et une chambre avec lit simple. Chacune possède sa salle de toilette avec douche. Ces installations évoquent admirablement le style des années 1960. 

Pour la baignade, le Lac des Cœurs se situe à deux kilomètres à l’est. Pour le canotage ou la pèche, la rivière Opasatika est deux kilomètres à l’ouest. Pour se déplacer, il y a de vieux vélos ou la marche. Pour un frais très raisonnable, votre hôte peut aussi vous conduire ou organiser un déplacement vers Kapuskasing à l’est ou vers Hearst à l’ouest. 

Les matériaux d’artistes ne sont pas disponibles dans la région. Il est donc important de faire vos achats avant votre séjour, à moins que vous travailliez avec des matériaux que l’on peut se procurer dans des magasins ordinaires ou même en nature.

CITY of TORONTO
NATIONAL CALL TO ARTISTS FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
DR. LILLIAN McGREGOR PARK, 11 Wellesley St. West

Value of the Commission: $1,090,000.00 CAD (+HST)

PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY
The City of Toronto invites professional indigenous artists, or indigenous artist−lead teams, to submit Expressions of Interest to create a comprehensive public art project in a new City park named for Anishinabe leader Dr. Lillian McGregor. The artworks will be integrated into the park design, by DuToit, Allsop Hillier (DTAH). Artists are asked to recognise regional indigenous histories and cultures, and consider themes important to Dr. McGregor—Health, Spirituality and Language.

PROJECT OVERVIEW, PLANS AND LOCATION
With a 60-storey condominium tower along its eastern edge, the park is bordered by Wellesley St. W to the north, Breadalbane St. to the south and St. Luke Ln to the east. Due to its size and proximity to transit corridors and high-density development, the proposed park is intended to serve local residents, those who work in the area, and visitors to the neighbourhood.

Initial designs for the park include plantings and design elements that reflect Dr. McGregor’s life and interests — plaques promoting indigenous culture, birch trees and medicinal plant beds, and a community fire pit for gatherings and ceremonies are being considered.

Arts & Culture Services is working with Parks, Forestry & Recreation, DTAH, the Ward 27 Councillor’s Office, community partners and Dr. McGregor’s family on the park’s development. The park will be constructed in 2018-19.

Concept rendering courtesy DTAH

ABOUT DR. LILLIAN McGREGOR

She was instrumental in the Friendship Centre Movement, a founding member of the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, and a board member of the Native Child and Family Services of Toronto, the Aboriginal Advisory Council, Nishnawbe Homes, and Ontario’s Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy.

Dr. McGregor was the first indigenous woman to be awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Toronto and was the University’s first Elder In Residence. She was widely recognized for her work in promoting indigenous culture and education and was awarded the City of Toronto Civic Award, National Aboriginal Achievement Lifetime Award and Order of Ontario for her outstanding work nationally and locally.

Call to Artists for Expression of Interest (EOI)
Permanent Public Art Work
LAWRENCE HEIGHTS DEVELOPMENT PHASE 1 OPPORTUNITY

PROJECT PROFILE

The current Lawrence Heights redevelopment project is part of a new wave of change taking place in Toronto, with the central suburbs assuming exciting new roles based on changing demands, and the absorption of new urban density. Slated to take place over the next two decades, the revitalization will transform the 100-acre site into a vibrant mixed-income, mixed-use neighbourhood just north of Toronto’s downtown core.

Phase 1 of the redevelopment introduces new urban forms to the area including pedestrian mews, laneways, urban streets and blocks, and linear parks to either side of the Allen Expressway. Each element is designed to reflect a new sensibility for the area that is fundamentally urban and social – geared towards enhanced physical & social connectivity, promoting mixed uses of space, modes of transportation, and wealth of choice for movement.

PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY

Heights Development Inc. is calling for socially engaged artists and artist teams with proven track records and ongoing practices of engaging diverse communities to submit their Expressions of Interest. They will be commissioned to produce Public Art that enhances the quality of the public realm in Lawrence Heights, while facilitating the expression of cultural diversity and community pride. The commissioned Public Art will be of durable materials and construction, and subject to the maintenance requirements of public artwork on city property. It will be carefully sited to enhance important views and announce the first new gateway into a revitalized neighbourhood.

The budget for this project is approximately $641,000. This will include all artists’ fees, costs of fabrication, costs of installation, any associated engineering, permits and project development, as well as any site-specific costs. A portion of this budget, up to 5%, should be dedicated to resident engagement, which will be defined as a fundamental part of the successful artist’s or team’s artistic process. Artists will be compensated for community engagement and outreach activities.

SITES

Primary Site (A1): Acting as a gateway or trailhead to the new redevelopment 1B, this city-owned ‘east greenway’ begins at the south side of Ranee Avenue adjacent the Allen Expressway underpass and Yorkdale Subway Station entrance. Running south from the trailhead, a new 56m long concrete retaining wall will be built to hold back the load-bearing earth that stabilizes the Allen, while creating a barrier-free ramping entrance into the new public multipurpose trail. This pathway will eventually be used by pedestrians and cyclists connecting to Lawrence Ave W. and beyond.

Secondary Site (A2) – The pedestrian underpass on the north and south sides of the Ranee Ave right of way, under the Allen Expressway, is the alternative location for the Public Art work. The artist(s) may propose to utilize walls, columns, sidewalk, and/or soffit as part of the proposal, but cannot restrict visibility to either of the TTC entrances.

A1+A2 – The artist may choose to work exclusively in either site, or design a work that connects both sites.

* As sites are on public property, proposals will be subject to technical review by Parks, Forestry, and Recreation and any other associated City of Toronto departments.

TWO-STAGE COMPETITION

Professional artists/teams will be selected through a two-stage adjudication process.

As per the Canada Council’s guidelines, a professional artist is defined as someone who:

  • has specialized artistic training (not necessarily in academic institutions)
  • is recognized as a professional by his or her peers (artists working in the same artistic tradition)
  • has a history of public exhibitions
  • has produced an independent body of work

Stage 1: February-March 2017 – The Jury will review submissions and a short list of 5 of artists/artist teams will be selected to develop their proposals. Selection will be based on artists’ track record of producing innovative socially engaged public art and large-scale projects; interdisciplinary experience working with landscape architects / engineers; demonstrated understanding of socio/cultural conditions of community housing.

Stage 2: March-September 2017 – The short-listed artists will develop a project proposal based on a Terms of Reference document provided to them.

Open call: apexart Franchise Exhibition Program 2017-18

Application period: February 1–28, 2017

apexart.org
apexart announces its 10th annual Franchise Exhibition Program open call: an opportunity to propose and produce an exhibition that takes place anywhere in the world except New York City. No prior curatorial experience is necessary and anyone can apply.

The submission process
Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibitions, cannot exceed 500 words, and must be written in English. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Projects are judged by the strength of their ideas and the organizer’s ability to communicate them, not by connections or past accomplishments.

The selection process
An international jury of up to 200 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds rates the proposals. Submissions are made anonymous and jurors assign their scores independently online over the course of a month. Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, we use a system of crowd-sourcing wherein many jurors review a random subset of proposals, with each proposal generally receiving more than 30 ratings.

The organizers of the four highest-ranked proposals receive an exhibition budget of up to 6,000 USD, a location rental budget of up to 2,000 USD, an honorarium of 2,000 USD for organizing the exhibition and writing an accompanying essay, and administrative support and involvement necessary to present their proposals as apexart Franchise Exhibitions.

apexart is not a funding organization; these exhibitions are part of apexart’s regular programming. Organizers are expected and challenged to work within the funding provided to produce a small, focused, and noteworthy exhibition.

Submit your proposal on apexart’s Franchise Exhibition Program page beginning February 1, 2017. https://apexart.org/franchise.php

Appel à projet curatorial La Box 2017-2018Installée dans un bâtiment du XVIIe siècle, l’École nationale supérieure d’art de Bourges est située dans le cœur historique de la ville de Bourges, dans le centre de la France à deux heures de Paris. Avec une surface de plus de 7000 m2, l’école offre de vastes espaces de travail pour les étudiant(e)s et de nombreux ateliers techniques dotés d’équipements importants constamment modernisés et renouvelés.

L’école, habilitée à délivrer le grade Master au diplôme national supérieur d’expression plastique, est conçue pour favoriser l’inventivité et la créativité, qui n’adviennent que si les moments d’échanges, de rencontres et de réflexions sont nombreux : elle est un lieu généreux et ouvert sur l’extérieur, favorisant les rencontres et les croisements artistiques. Son enseignement propose un contexte d’études et de recherches dont les méthodes sont toujours à réinventer pour inciter à la réflexion, aiguiser la curiosité, apprendre à être disponible, multiplier les discussions, articuler la mise en pratique avec les analyses critiques.

La galerie La Box est l’un des principaux outils pédagogiques de l’Ensa. Tous les ans, elle initie des actions en lien avec les enseignements de l’école en produisant une dizaine d’expositions d’artistes français ou étrangers. Depuis plus de dix ans, elle confie une partie de sa programmation à de jeunes commissaires invités choisis puis suivis par l’équipe pédagogique de l’école. Les curateurs développent un programme expérimental s’appuyant sur un module pédagogique mis en place pour assurer le lien avec les enseignants et les étudiants, pour permettre à ces derniers de questionner la problématique de travail du programme curatorial et rester au plus près des acteurs de la scène contemporaine.Détails, modalités et fiche de candidature télécharger en pdf
