Artistes de la performance

Appel de dossiers

Programmation régulière

Date de tombée : 1er juillet 2016

Dans le cadre de sa programmation régulière, le CIRCA art actuel souhaite offrir des plages consacrées aux pratiques de la performance. En 2017, CIRCA accueillera les samedis, lorsque le Belgo fourmille de visiteurs, quatre performances les 18 mars, 6 mai, 21 octobre et 16 décembre.

Le CIRCA art actuel est un centre d’artistes dont le mandat est de diffuser les pratiques qui questionnent l’espace. Les problématiques de l’espace (espace social, personnel, géographique, culturel, politique ou environnemental) peuvent s’inscrire dans le réel, le fictif ou le virtuel. Dans les pratiques performatives, elles peuvent s’exprimer selon différents axes comme par exemple la manœuvre, le tableau vivant, l’art corporel et l’art relationnel.

CIRCA art actuel invite donc les performeurs individuels ou en collectif à venir investir les deux galeries du Centre. Les œuvres doivent être inédites ou ne pas avoir été présentées sur le territoire de la grande région de Montréal. Il est à noter que les deux salles d’exposition (Galerie I et Galerie II) seront entièrement vides et mises à la disposition des artistes. Un texte d’opuscule rédigé par un auteur présentera le travail du ou des performateur(s).

Les performances seront sélectionnées par le comité de sélection du volet Performance. Ce comité est formé de membres actifs, de membres du conseil d’administration, de la directrice et d’un membre externe invité. Le Centre se fait un devoir d’assurer une pluralité dans sa programmation. La pertinence du projet lié à la problématique de l’espace et la singularité de la proposition artistique sont les principaux critères de sélection des dossiers.

CONDITIONS GÉNÉRALES

  • Le cachet offert aux artistes est de 600 $ par performance.
  • Le performeur a accès aux salles d’exposition vides deux jours (jeudi et vendredi) avant la tenue de la performance. La performance se tiendra le samedi et le démontage doit être entièrement effectué le lendemain (dimanche) au plus tard.
  • Les membres actifs ou le personnel du Centre peuvent offrir un soutien technique de base.
  • Les dates des performances auront lieu les samedis suivants :
    • 18 mars 2017
    • 6 mai 2017
    • 21 octobre 2017
    • 16 décembre 2017

LE DOSSIER

Le dossier doit être entièrement contenu dans un PDF, il doit inclure les éléments suivants :

  • CV à jour
  • Texte de démarche (300 mots maximum)
  • Présentation du projet ou de l’intention de recherche comprenant
    • Une courte présentation de 300 mots maximum
    • La durée approximative de la performance
  • Quinze (15) images significatives de travaux récents incluant un descriptif des projets.
  • Nous vous invitons à nous transmettre des hyperliens vers vos vidéos de performance sur les plateformes Vimeo ou YouTube. Prière de ne joindre aucun fichier vidéo.

La taille maximale du PDF est de 10 Mo.

Merci d’envoyer vos dossiers au circa [arobas] circa-art [point] com
avant le 1er juillet 2016.

Nous vous ferons parvenir un accusé réception deux semaines après la clôture de l’appel. Nous communiquerons avec les performeurs retenus d’ici le 15 août 2016.

Veuillez noter que la Galerie POPOP est exclue de cet appel.

Trancher dans le vif du Temps :
Infuser/Diffuser

Le 3e impérial, centre d’essai en art actuel, invite les artistes à proposer des projets qui infusent, par des actes créatifs, engagés et engageants, les reliefs d’une temporalité insondable, d’un temps imaginable. Des projets qui positionnent la figure et le rôle de l’artiste dans l’actualité glocale/lobale et critique de notre temps (enjeux écologiques, nature menacée, migrations humaines, consommation et développement technologique effrénés, rapports intergénérationnels, crise de sens, crise de l’avenir etc.), tout en se reliant à l’histoire, à la vie et à l’environnement de la collectivité où ils prennent place (Granby et région) et en s’engageant dans une relation de collaboration avec l’équipe du 3e impérial.

L’artiste habite les circonstances que le présent lui offre,
afin de transformer le contexte de sa vie (son rapport au monde sensible ou conceptuel)
en un univers durable. Nicolas Bourriaud

Le temps fuit, nous échappe. Notre connaissance et notre appréhension de l’univers oscillent entre finitude et infinitude, nous mystifient ; densité du passé, tyrannie d’un présent évanescent, incertitude du futur… Au cœur de cette temporalité se meut la vie, complexe, se construisent nos récits, nos fictions.

Déjouer les contingences et les nécessités de l’ici maintenant, ses apories, ses dérives, le manque de perspective qui caractérise cruellement notre civilisation, redonner du sens au chaos, de la vibration et de la lumière à ce qui vient et à ce qui fut, n’est-ce pas ainsi que le geste/l’objet d’art se manifeste, à l’infinitif présent, et à l’aune de nos désirs et de nos rêves ?

Est-il un horizon, une lisière, une friche post-sauvage, qui puisse encore remuer nos murailles de certitudes, dissoudre nos frayeurs, nourrir notre pouvoir de se projeter, collectivement, avec joie et lucidité, vers l’avant ?

En autant que l’art et le réel/la vie ne soient pas disjonctifs, par quelle praxis par quelle tournure astucieuse/invraisemblable, par quelles alliances probables/improbables, peut-on trancher dans le vif de notre présent pour en faire jaillir une vision neuve ?

Questions vastes et immémoriales. Et pourtant…

Les artistes intéressés à soumettre une proposition sont invités à prendre connaissance de la description des documents requis ainsi que des modalités de coproduction et de diffusion offertes par le 3e impérial.

Fondé en 1984, 3e impérial, centre d’essai en art actuel propose une approche interdisciplinaire et contextuelle des arts visuels prenant pour assises la quotidienneté et la proximité avec les communautés. Ses activités – création, exploration, production, diffusion, pensée et écriture critiques, édition, forums publics, résidence d’artistes/d’auteurs/de chercheurs – se fondent sur la collaboration et la rencontre de divers savoirs et expériences pour soutenir, documenter, approfondir et mettre en œuvre des chantiers d’art public qui s’infusent et se diffusent dans des particularités territoriales et humaines tout en valorisant les liens entre pratique artistique, espace public et engagement social.

Downtown/s: Urban Renewal Today for Tomorrow
The 2017 Art Gallery of Windsor Triennial of Contemporary Art
Art Gallery of Windsor, Windsor, ON

Submission Deadline: Friday August 5th, 2016 at 5pm
Exhibition Dates: September 29, 2017 – January 14, 2018
(results will be communicated in the fall of 2016)

Curated by Jaclyn Meloche, PhD, Interim Curator of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Windsor
Guest Juror: Kirsty Robertson, PhD, Associate Professor, Western University, Canada

The Art Gallery of Windsor (AGW) is pleased to invite proposals for new or recent artworks for Downtown/s: Urban Renewal Today for Tomorrow, The 2017 Art Gallery of Windsor Triennial of Contemporary Art which brings together examples of contemporary art made by artists in southwestern Ontario, Windsor-Essex, and Detroit surrounding the theme of downtown/s – downtown destruction and downtown renewal. In response to this theme, artists are to consider the many ways in which they experience, understand and frame the notion of downtown within their community in all its locational precarity and multiplicities.

The strategic plurality of the word downtown speaks to current and timely conversations about global architecture, culture and economic renaissance, topics that are changing the nature of what a downtown looks like, how it functions, and for whom. In an effort to expand the Art Gallery of Windsor’s notion of downtown and collaborate with other sites in and around the city, additional locations will serve as a stage for the presentation of art, such as the University of Windsor and its newly relocated School of Creative Arts, the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre, and other sites to be determined. In the spirit of an intervention, we invite artists to submit recent works, or proposals for new work to be exhibited in a variety of spaces. Artists are encouraged to share their stories with us. We want to know how artists are responding and re-imagining their experiences and understandings of downtown in times of urban renewal. Works in all media will be considered, including sculpture, performance, video, audio, installation, photography, painting, drawing and digital media.

Application Guidelines:

  1. Eligibility: Downtown/s: Urban Renewal Today for Tomorrow, The Art Gallery of Windsor Triennial of Contemporary Art is open to artists living in southwestern Ontario, Windsor-Essex and Detroit.
  2. Artworks in all media created in the past two years are eligible.
  3. Applications must include the following:
    1. Cover page including name, address, city, postal code/ zip code, country, telephone, email and website (if applicable)
    2. Project title, and media
    3. 10 images or audio-visual documentation of previous work in the following formats (digital images: JPEG, maximum 1MB file size; maximum resolution 1024 X 768 pixels. Video must be viewable in Quicktime or Windows Media Player, maximum resolution 1024 X 768 pixels.) Clearly labeled CD, DVD or flash drive will be accepted.
    4. Please include a corresponding image list identifying the title, date, media and dimensions.
    5. CV and Artist statement (no more than 4 pages)
    6. Project description/ Proposal (no more than 500 words)
    7. Details of technical requirements for the work (i.e. services, necessary equipment including maintenance of the work)
    8. A stamped, self-addressed envelope – if you would like your support material to be returned to you.
  4. Artists included in the exhibition will be paid an artist fee in accordance with Canadian Artist Representation (CARFAC) guidelines.

White Water Gallery (WWG) is seeking proposals from artists working in all media for the 2017/18 programming season.

Deadline: June 30, 2016

WWG is dedicated to presenting work by contemporary artists working in or across a variety of disciplines. The gallery strives to present experimental, alternative and/or critically engaged art that is relevant to diverse cultures and “wicked problems.”  The gallery welcomes submissions from individual artists, curators, and collectives, with new or existing exhibition proposals.

We also encourage initiatives that seek to expand our programming beyond the gallery space, and welcome proposals for site-specific projects.

The Gallery Space  

White Water is an open concept gallery with a storefront window right on Main Street.

The exhibition space is about 1000 square feet in total (including the front entry area [20 x 15 = 300 sq ft] and the main area [35 x 20 = 700 sq ft]).  The tin ceilings are about 14 feet high, and there is a drywall lip at 10 feet high.  

This image was taken from the WWG storefront, during the process of installing the Point of No Return Collective show (2015).

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

You will be asked to include the following:

  1. Proposal/Project Description (1 page maximum)
  2. Technical Requirements

  4. Artist Bio(s) (250 words max, each)
  5. Current CV (3 pages max)
  6. Visual Support Material with Support Material List (15 images max)

 Please select visual support material mindfully, as committee members have limited time to consider each proposal. Images should be labeled numerically with the artist’s name (01_name.jpg, 02_name.jpg, etc.). Your Support Material List should include title of work, date created, medium, and dimensions.

Video documentation should either be uploaded to a site such as Youtube or Vimeo and linked in the application, or included on a USB or DVD. Regardless of duration, please include full videos. Due to time constraints, the selections committee may only view up to 5 minutes of each video. Please note the clip you would prefer the jury view by including time marks in the documentation list.

White Water Gallery will accept mailed submissions, but we prefer those submitted by email to: programming [arobas] whitewatergallery [point] com

Programming Process

Proposals are judged on artistic merit and project viability, as well as in relation to White Water Gallery’s mandate and programming focus.

All submissions to the Annual Call are vetted by a Programming Committee composed of: the Director, 3 working artists or curators from the region, and 1 invited artist or curator from outside of North Bay.  Based on this jury’s decisions, and taking budgetary and scheduling constraints into consideration, the Director makes final decisions in selecting each exhibition.

Please allow approximately 3 months after the deadline for the White Water Gallery jury to consider submissions.

NOTE: Submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis, and those received after the post-marked deadline will be held over until the next review.

MISSION

Established in 1974 and incorporated in 1977, the White Water Gallery has played a leading role in the promotion and dissemination of contemporary art and culture, both locally and nationally. As a not-for-profit Artist-Run Centre, the Gallery aims to facilitate a diverse range of artistic programming. [To be expanded.]

Exhibition Fees
The White Water Gallery is considered a Category 1 gallery and is classified as a small space by Canadian Artists Representation Copyright Collective (CARCC). We pay full artist fees in accordance with this designation and the CARCC guidelines. The current fee for a solo exhibition is $1,900, which does not include fees paid for additional activities that may be scheduled such as artist talks, panel discussions, or screenings. We also attempt to offset costs related to shipping, travel and accommodations, and encourage artists to apply for travel bursaries and/or exhibition assistance to cover any additional costs.

NAISA is pleased to launch its
2016 Call For Submissions SOUND RESPONSE
Deadline June 15, 2016
www.naisa.ca

Categories: Transmission Art/Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Interactive Installation Art, and Other

Go to http://naisa.ca/opportunities/calls-for-submissions/naisa-general-call-for-submissions/ for full information and on-line application

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Sound Response for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2017 programming.

Sounds, people, animals and environments interact in interesting and complex ways. Languages are shaped by environments, sounds often distinguish the character of a community or habitat, and sound waves propagate differently when they respond to different surfaces and atmospheric conditions. For its 2017 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions that reflect the notion of a Sound Response and creative ways that this can be shared.

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme Sound Response. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works on the theme for performance, gallery exhibit, audio-visual screening, radio or internet broadcast, telematics, mobile experiences and any other emerging or alternative formats that include sound as a primary element. Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on June 15, 2016. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee. Only those artists being considered for presentation will be contacted.

We invite you to submit your work to the 15th DongGang International Photo Festival, to be held this year from 15th July to 25th September, 2016 in DongGang, Yeonwol, Korea.

Flying in the Sky

I have always longed to be free as a bird flying in the sky. For a long time, images of the world seen from a bird’s-eye view have been regarded somewhat extraordinary. Using today’s technology, however, such images are quite effortlessly obtainable. By virtue of the drones with cameras, aerial photos are readily accessible today. Now I feel it is time to really meet the world I am living in —its beauty and its marvel in their entirety— with the aid of the cameras that can fly.
Submissions must be shot using a quadcopter.

Individuals and collectives are welcome to apply; individuals should select and enter between six and ten photographs from a particular series or body of work. Artist of the year (winner) and between 10 and 20 photographers / artists will benefit from:

ARTIST PARTICIPATION EXPECTATIONS
Artist in Resident participants are expected make a serious commitment to the program for the entire three-month session and to utilize the studio actively and consistently (on average artists are in the studio 20 hours per week). In addition, artists are required to give an public artist talk or teach one public workshop. It is vital to the success of the program that Artist in Resident participants fully take advantage of the unique resources we are able to provide. For this reason, Artist in Resident participants cannot simultaneously participate in another residency or degree-granting program while participating in Guttenberg Arts Space and Time Artist Residency.

FORMATTING OF WORK SAMPLES: DIGITAL IMAGES
File name: Images numbered in the order you would like them to be seen and labeled according to the titles on your list of work. (Example- “01untitled.jpg, 02sunset.jpg, 03Portrait.jpg”)
File size: No larger than 5.0 MB (each image) at 300dpi
File format: .JPG (preferred)
No composite images will be reviewed. A composite image is a single image file that is comprised of multiple images. Images of diptychs, installations, and multi-part works are not considered composites and are permissible.

Images will be shown in the order they are uploaded and are projected at roughly 30″ x 40″ per image via high definition digital projectors. Moderators will read aloud the materials, dimensions, and date of the image; panelists will have access to this information as well.

FAQ
WHAT IS A SPACE AND TIME ARTIST RESIDENCY?
Space and Time Artist Residency at Guttenberg Arts provides artists with a $1,200.00 USD stipend to cover material, travel, and housing in conjunction with 24/7 shared access to a 4,500 sq ft. professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts including printmaking, dark room and ceramics for three months in Guttenberg, New Jersey. Artists will also be given a one month group show as well as studio visits from accomplished professionals from the art world. Each artist is required to give a free and open to the public artist lecture or workshop towards the close of their three month residency. We highly recommend a site visit to our building. Artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work.

HOW ARE ARTISTS SELECTED?
Artists are chosen based on the single criterion of work that demonstrates a compelling vision as defined by the assembled panel’s collective opinion. Materials are reviewed and voted on by the panelists in elimination rounds which produce a smaller pool for each round. An artist’s advancement is a product of the collective vote of the panel. A single panelist cannot ensure an applicant’s success or failure. Panel proceedings are overseen by the Guttenberg Arts Staff and by Guttenberg Arts Board of Trustees. Panelists’ names are kept confidential until the awards are announced. Artists are awarded residencies at all career levels.
HOW IS WORK REVIEWED?
Applications are available for panelists to read as they review support materials. An artist’s digital images are projected in the order uploaded by the applicant. Moderators will read aloud the materials, dimensions, and date of the images to the panel.

HOW ARE PANELS ASSEMBLED?
Panelists change each round and are comprised of three art world professionals.

WHEN ARE THE FELLOWSHIPS ANNOUNCED?

Residency For Artists On Hiatus (RFAOH)

Call for applications 2016/2017

RFAOH co-directors Shinobu Akimoto and Matthew Evans are pleased to invite international “artists on-hiatus” to apply to their third call for residents to participate in their ongoing project Residency For Artists On Hiatus (RFAOH).

Residency For Artists On Hiatus is a virtual yet functioning residency available to artists who, for one reason or another, are NOT currently making or presenting art. The residency exists in the form of a website only, and the residents are selected based on their proposals of “on-hiatus” activities (or non-activities). To be eligible to apply, artists must have previously created an independent body of work and have exhibited in a public context. Selected residents will be represented on a dedicated page within the RFAOH website, where they post periodic reports throughout their residency. A modest stipend will be awarded to successful applicants to assist in their on-hiatus endeavour. At the conclusion of their residency, residents are asked to submit a written report on how they benefited from or were otherwise influenced by this opportunity.

Since its launch in 2013, Residency For Artists On Hiatus has hosted twelve international “on-hiatus artists” with a broad range of backgrounds and projects. Through this opportunity to be free from the obligations of being an artist, they have explored the space between art-making and other creative endeavour, and the limits and liminalities of professionalism in the arts. Residency For Artists On Hiatus has also generated steady responses, including a growing community of followers, featured articles in various media, and invitations for presentations from art spaces worldwide.

We are excited to host a third cohort of residents, and continue our discourse surrounding the role of art within the wider culture. This year, we also look forward to the publication of “RFAOH Annual Reports”, which will document our operation and our residents’ “on-hiatus” activities. To know more about Residency For Artists On Hiatus, please visit: www.residencyforartistsonhiatus.org. Detailed information on how to apply can be found at www.residencyforartistsonhiatus.org/application.php

THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS JUNE 25, 2016

Residency For Artists On Hiatus continues to seek a host organization who may promote the residency through their own website, and/or assist in funding the programme. If your institution/organization is interested in supporting RFAOH, please contact us at info [arobas] residencyforartistsonhiatus [point] org

We would like to thank the organizations and individuals who have helped us in various ways over the last three years. We also sincerely thank Mr. Tehching Hsieh for accepting our invitation to sit on our advisory board. Without their support and encouragement, this third call for applications would have never happened.

WORK ENVIRONMENT

Residents are given 24-hour access to studios and the time and space to create.

They have access to the Hearth Building where there is rehearsal and performance space, a mixing board, sound booth, speakers, a projector and large screen, and a well-equipped commercial kitchen.

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.

CALL FOR ARTISTS!The Gardiner Museum is inviting artists to create “green” art installations for our annual 12 Trees exhibition.

Submission Deadline: JUNE 15, 2016

Visit the website and download the full request for proposals

Over the last 27 years, the Gardiner Museum has celebrated the festive season with its signature fundraising exhibition, 12 Trees, and its central gala event, the G Party. Last year, the 12 Trees exhibition was reinvigorated as a showcase of contemporary tree-inspired art installations based on the theme “The Joy of Creativity”. The artists and designers included Justin Broadbent, Bruno Billio, Jane Waterous, and Michael Adamson, among others. The exhibition raised over $130,000 for the Gardiner, doubled its audience over previous years, and received tremendous media coverage.

The Gardiner is among the few museums in the world focused on ceramics. This year’s 12 Trees theme celebrates the very foundations of clay: the Earth. The Gardiner values the one-of-a-kind and the handmade, careful rather than mass consumption, and the preservation of treasured objects for future generations.

In 2016, we invite artists to propose Christmas tree installations inspired by the theme Good for the Earth. Proposals should address one, or all, of the following:

2. A bio and CV for the lead applicant(s)
As this is a fundraising event, note that each installation will be paired with a sponsor.

AVAILABLE SPACES

  1. Lobby: Max installation height 9 ft, same for load-in/load out.
