THEME : Génération numérique

On n’a plus à présenter le numérique aujourd’hui. Il a envahi notre quotidien dans tous ses aspects, qu’ils soient culturel, social, politique ou économique. Et pourtant, comme le rappelle Milad Doueihi, le numérique a entrainé de profonds bouleversements, remettant en cause les conventions établies, notamment dans le domaine de la création. Tour à tour, chacun a pu assister à ces transformations et au retournement de notre société et observer les évolutions de nos pratiques culturelles et de nos manières de les aborder. C’est pourtant un nouveau défi qui se présente aux artistes d’aujourd’hui, à savoir comment recomposer avec l’influence de technologies dans notre quotidien et légitimer ces nouvelles pratiques.

Dans ce foisonnement de créativité, un groupe parmi tant d’autres y trouve son compte. La jeunesse se réapproprie le terrain dont elle était chassée. La transmission du savoir par les plus expérimentés n’est plus la norme, ce sont maintenant aux jeunes de montrer la voie. Smartphones, web, blog, appareils photo numériques, vidéo, réseaux sociaux, il n’est rien qui ne soit exploré et maitrisé par la nouvelle génération. L’ouverture des jeunes à ces nouvelles formes de créativité entraîne de ce fait l’émergence d’une nouvelle culture, celle de la génération numérique, un groupe qui tend à s’imposer dans un univers créatif qui leur était encore étranger il y a quelques années.
Cette première édition de Voix Jeunes Talents nous invite à découvrir cette nouvelle génération numérique et l’influence que le numérique a entrainé sur leur pratique artistique. Des questions restées jusqu’ici en suspens trouveront leur réponse au cours de cette soirée qui leur est spécialement dédiée. Quelle est la place du numérique dans leur quotidien ? Avec quelle aisance ils s’en accaparent, quelles sont les possibilités engendrées par leur production artistique ? Cette génération numérique parviendra-t-elle à dépasser la dualité art traditionnel / numérique pour unir ces deux mouvements et les réconcilier ?

La Maison des artistes – Appel aux artistes: Hommage à Réal Bérard

Date de tombée: vendredi 13 mars 2015
Nous préparons une exposition qui rend hommage à Réal Bérard. L’exposition inclut des oeuvres de Réal Bérard, mais nous voulons aussi exposer des oeuvres d’artistes manitobains inspirées par Réal Bérard. C’est une façon de reconnaître les contributions d’un grand artiste manitobain… qui célébrera son 80e anniversaire de naissance prochainement (shhhhh).

À ce stade nous sollicitons des artistes qui présenteront une ou des oeuvres qui rendent hommage Réal Bérard. Tout est permis! Nous cherchons à identifier des artistes souhaitant faire partie du projet. L’exposition sera en août 2015. Donc, le printemps 2015 sera période de création et d’identification d’œuvres et d’artistes qui se cadrent au projet.

Tous ceux et celles intéressé(e)s peuvent communiquer avec Eric Plamondon, directeur de la MDA, d’ici le vendredi 13 mars, 2015.

Appel à participer à la
Minute vidéo Folie/Culture 2015
Folie/Culture propose à tous — 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 minute sur le thème de La normalité ostentatoire.

La Minute vidéo Folie/Culture entame cette année une réflexion sur la thématique La normalité ostentatoire. Puisque la normalité est par définition drabe, comment la rendre ostentatoire ? La normalité ostentatoire se présente comme une ouverture sur les espaces limites : sexualité, comportements hideux, fusion culturelle, ruptures de toutes sortes. Il s’agit de proposer des formes inouïes comme des choses banales et usuelles, bref, de rendre ostentatoire ce qui est par ailleurs reclus et sans éclat. À la modestie craintive des gênés, nous opposons la jubilation ostentatoire de nos écarts de conduite. Il n’y a plus rien dans le placard.

Les Minutes vidéo sélectionnées seront projetées à l’occasion d’une soirée publique dans le cadre de la programmation 2015-2016.

Pour participer, vous pouvez :

OPTION A : Produire une vidéo — fiction, documentaire, vidéo d’art — en un plan-séquence d’une minute en continu sur le thème de La normalité ostentatoire.

Attention :
Aucun montage d’image, de son ou de générique n’est permis
Seule la musique originale ou libre de droits est admise
Formats acceptés : .mov ou .avi non compressé

OPTION B : Produire une vidéo d’animation d’une durée d’une minute

After a great debut at last year’s WorldPride celebrations, Nuit Rose returns for a second year on Saturday, June 20, 2015, with the theme Play/Space, as an official event of Toronto’s Pride Festival.

NUIT ROSE offers a space for Canadian queer artists and international artists to showcase their work. This celebration of LGBTQ culture will engage local audiences and visitors from around the world with site-specific exhibitions, installations and performances. Toronto is home to vast and diverse LGBTQ communities. We strongly encourage artists and organizations that reflect this diversity to apply.

Artists may submit work in various media, including but not limited to: two dimensional work, sculpture, installation, screen based & new media, performance based works and multi-media.

The Throbbing Rose Collective will do its utmost to accommodate as many proposals as possible, given the resources of the festival. A jury of local art specialists will evaluate the proposals and make recommendations for the final selection of works to be included in the festival. The selected Feature Artists will receive fees based upon current CARFAC rates, in addition to exhibition and/or performance space in key venues. Those selected to present as Independent Artists are eligible for exhibition assistance and promotional support. The jury may also use its discretion to award commissions to specific projects. Organizations are welcome to apply for inclusion with their own projects.

Background

Nuit Rose is a community-based, cultural festival first conceived as part of WorldPride 2014. The multi-venue event fosters the work of Canadian and international visual and performance artists. The aim of NUIT ROSE is to enhance the scope of cultural programming of Pride Toronto by promoting collaborative relationships between community partners, artists and the public. Like the highly successful inaugural edition, NUIT ROSE (Play/Space) will be a visually stunning multi-venue event designed to commemorate LGBTQ histories, spaces and places. This year, NUIT ROSE has joined forces with Pride Toronto to present additional projects in new venues with added dates during Pride Week 2015.
Event Locations: Two Zones

The festival will take place in two Toronto neighbourhoods: West Queen West and the Church-Wellesley Village, which collectively have a rich queer-activist, visual art and cultural history. NUIT ROSE (Play/Space) is yet another opportunity for the two communities to come together to showcase the work of artists of diverse backgrounds, orientations and identifications.

EAST ZONE: CHURCH-WELLESLEY VILLAGE
The Church-Wellesley Village is one of the most vibrant, colourful and unique neighbourhoods in Canada. It is the traditional site of Toronto’s Pride Week, the city’s largest festival and Canada’s largest LGBTTIQQ2SA event. The neighbourhood is the traditional home of Canada’s LGBTQ community, with such notable organizations as The 519 Church Street Community Centre, the Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives and the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.

WEST ZONE: QUEEN STREET WEST
West Queen West is the largest hub for visual art in Canada, and is known to foster new and emerging talent and ideas. It is the home of the historic Gladstone Hotel, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Artscape Youngplace, the Theatre Centre and many important nationally and internationally recognized art galleries. It is also a gathering point for some of Toronto’s most innovative thinkers and creative art makers.

Confirmed community partners for NUIT ROSE (Play/Space) include: Artscape Youngplace, The Theatre Centre, The 519 Church Street Community Centre, The Gladstone Hotel, the City of Toronto, and the Ontario Arts Council.

Call For Entries: Public Space_s

Athens Digital Arts Festival invites you to submit proposals for its next edition taking place in spring in Athens. Extended Deadline for submissions is 18 March 2015.

In our times, the notion of public space appears to be one of the most contradictory concepts. With the rise of network and communication technologies, our experience of public space has changed. Public space is not only characterised by physical space and architecture but also by networks and knowledge distribution.

While public space is mainly being interpreted through urban planning, digital public space is organised through IP locations, URLs and protocols. Their cartographies, as distinct as they may seem, are both informed by network dynamics that add new layers of interpretation. Squares, parks, streets and the Internet are all potential public spaces that are activated through participation and engagement in order to acquire meaning.

The multiple interconnected spaces within which we act have redefined and affected our perception of everyday life as well as our social and cultural imaginaries. On the other hand, real-time data circulation and information exchange have created new patterns of communication allowing communities to surpass their localities and explore new modes of engagement and collaboration.

However, inhabiting at the same time a plethora of spaces that are potentially public the question that arises is: how open and free are these spaces? Have the visions regarding open access to public space and eventually public data been fulfilled?

Through this call, the festival invites proposals to explore the notion of “public” both in the digital and physical space.

Sound Development City 2015 – Call for Projects

We are very happy to launch the call for projects for Sound Development City Artist Expedition 2015! This call is open to artists working in all disciplines.

The expedition cities will be Belgrade and Athens.
The expedition will take place from September 9 – 27, 2015.
The application deadline is April 19, 2015.

http://sound-development-city.com/now/en/application-form/

Sound Development City is looking for independent and dedicated project proposals and work theses that are to be tested and put into practice during a three-week expedition to Belgrade and Athens.

We are interested in interventions, installations, performances, experiments, moving images, artistic research projects and concepts which benefit from being on the road, and probe urban environments as sites of both playfulness and social involvement. The projects should be research-based and developed towards this open horizon.

Artists working in all disciplines can apply through the open call process. The key requirements are curiosity, openness to experimentation, process-oriented work, and adventurousness. We also welcome an inter-disciplinary approach and readiness to collaborate. There is no age limit.

An international jury of five will select about ten participants from the submitted applications. The selection criteria are artistic quality, originality and feasibility of realizing the proposed project.

Further information and travel details can be found on the Sound Development City website.

About Sound Development City

Sound Development City is a project by Sound Development, a non-commercial and independent cultural initiative based in Zurich, Switzerland. Sound Development City aims to inspire through practical experiences and enables a close exchange between artists of various backgrounds. The expedition format was developed in collaboration with Heller Enterprises, an agency for cultural projects.

Amsterdam Light Festival invites artists, designers, engineers and architects to submit ideas for art works to be staged at the festival’s 2015–2016 edition. The fourth edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival will take place in the city centre of Amsterdam from 26 November 2015 till 31st January 2016. The deadline for submissions is 25 of March.

You can find an impression of the last edition of the festival here.
The entire briefing can be found on our call for concepts website.

Theme: Friendship

This edition of the festival, we celebrate humanity, and light as a universal language to express ourselves. The festival’s theme this year is friendship. You can interpret this theme anyway you like. During the period of the Amsterdam Light Festival, Amsterdam is the stage of the European Summits as a result of The Netherlands holding presidency of the European Union. We are particularly interested in art works that express an understanding of the importance of friendships across Europe, of the way the continent has become more and more united over the past 50 years and how the friendship that has been established within the European Union translates into the continent’s value for all individuals who live there.

The festival will again present the Water Colors boat tour and the Illuminade walking route. Water Colors is comprised of large, colourful, monumental works along the canals while the Illuminade offers a platform for talent, experimentation, interaction and mixed forms of art and digital technology.

Open to all
With the call for concepts, the festival invites anyone (also from outside Europe) to submit individual interpretations of the theme friendship. In the context of this theme we hope to reach as many artists from different nations as possible. Please help us to spread this call. In regards to the theme, it is also possible to submit a concept on behalf of a European country. Read more about it in the artists’ briefing.

Dates & specifics of the festival
Water Colors boat route: 26 November 2015–31 January 2016
Illuminade walking route: 10 December 2015–3 January 2016

Amsterdam Light Festival is a long-lasting festival, so we are looking for objects which can be maintained over the entirety of the festival/route, seven days a week.

The festival is a breeding place for new light art. So we are especially looking for new concepts which are tailored to our festival and the city.

Deadline
You have to complete your submission by 25 March (24h CET). Late entries are not accepted. On 8 April, the festival will announce 70 finalists who will be asked to further detail their design and to resolve production issues. Subsequently, we are planning to announce the approximately 30 winners on 29 April. All winners will be required to visit Amsterdam for a site visit in May 2015, now scheduled for 11–13 May, the precise dates are to be announced.

More information about the submission requirements and the briefing can be found on our website. Other questions or concerns can be emailed to cfc [arobas] amsterdamlightfestival [point] com.

Mad House – Open call 2015

Mad House is a project of performing arts, that learns by experience and keeps transforming. The Mad House first season was a month-long performing arts event at Tiivistämö, Suvilahti, Helsinki, in October, 2014. It brought under the same ceiling 130 artists from Finland and abroad, with 52 different performances and workshops. The program was made of live and performance art, installations, Think Tank discussions on the future and status of performing arts, plus a many- sided bar program. After the month we said to each other – Mad House makes sense!

Now Mad House is launching a continuous open call for all the players at the art field. The continuous call means, that you can propose program and collaboration ideas for the Mad House any time, also for the up-coming seasons. Mad House is growing, developing, and becoming real by the needs of the art field, by listening to those needs, and by planning together. The next Mad House season (2nd) will take place at Tiivistämö, Suvilahti, on 1st September-30th November, 2015. The deadline for the program proposals for the Mad House second season is 16th of March, 2015.

What do we offer?
* Technical facilities, including a technician (excluding artistic design)
* Marketing and publicity as part of Mad House public relations
* A project-specific working grant from one week till two months (depending on the project)
Furthermore, we are offering a possibility for a summer residency on 22nd June-31th July, 2015, at the Performance Center, Suvilahti, Helsinki. The residency is meant for a working group.

For its program, Mad House is looking for interesting performances and demonstrations, exhibitions, workshops
and other concepts, such as lectures and club nights. You can propose program for the Tiivistämö hall, bar, or it can be independant on space, expanding to the whole Suvilahti area.

For the program at the hall, we have three time slots: 7-13 September, 21-27 September, 16-22 November

The projects that don’t need the Tiivistämö space, can happen on other times as well. Please notice, that Mondays are days for construction, and not available for public performances. That is to say, on Mondays Mad House is closed.

What do we want from you?
*a project proposal that is compact, but as detailed as possible (max A 4)
*information on spatial needs (hall, foyer, bar, the whole house, yard, no space at all…)
*If you are planning a project for the Tiivistämö hall, we’d like to know which time slot interests you, or is possible for you. The time slots: 7-13 Sept, 21-27 Sept or 16-22 Nov. Otherwise, please, tell us your proposed schedule (including the time slots that are not possible for you).
*Furthermore, tell us, whom you aim your project to. Why would it suit Mad House, why do you want to collaborate with Mad House?
*information on you: a short bio or CV
*a budget and preliminary technical rider
Send your proposal at latest on 16th of March to info [arobas] madhousehelsinki [point] fi. Further inquiries can be send to the same address, or you can call Mad House producer Mirva Pulkkinen at +358 50 545 4823.

The projects are chosen after discussing with the artist /working group.
All the applicants will be noticed at latest on 30th of April, 2015.

Telefonica R&D and LABoral are proud to organize NEXT THINGS 2015 – CONDUCTA, the Forth Global Art & Technology Challenge.

The goal of the challenge is to bring together art and technology, artists with technologies, and to unleash the huge potential of mixing the creativity and perspective of artists with the nowadays powerful open hardware technologies.

NEXT THINGS 2015 – CONDUCTA pursues innovative and breakthrough ideas on the Internet of Things in the context of art and technology.

Telefonica R&D and LABoral are seeking researchers/artists/designers who are working on artistic and research projects exploring the modulation of human behavior in groups of people through new technologies, particularly ideas and techniques involving data mining and pattern recognition, machine learning, collective group behavior and wearable technologies and biometric data and similar.

Key words: Quantifed self, behavior, self-tracking, aggregate data, machine learning, wearable tracking

It is important to reflect on these frameworks and to explore the impact that the Internet of Things, and Interactions Machine to Machine (M2M) can have on the lives of people, on a scale that spans from individual to whole societies.

It will be appreciated in the proposals:
–That may be converted in manufactured objects, employed by people and societies
–Connected wirelessly to the Internet

The call is open to all creators in the space between art and technology. Basic ability to build the project on your own, with occasional support from Telefónica R&D and LABoral, is required: knowledge of open hardware platforms such as Arduino and general programming skills.

NEXT THINGS 2015 is looking for ideas that can be prototyped and built within the course of six months, based on open hardware platforms such as Arduino connected to the Internet.

The selected project will be awarded with a six-month artist fellowship, split between LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial (through Plataforma 0. Production Centre) in Gijón for two months and Telefónica R&D (Telefonica’s technology research and development arm) in Barcelona for four months. The goal of the fellowship is to enable the fellow to bring the chosen idea to life. The fellowship will start the latest, on June 1, 2015.

The artist will receive 12,000 euros gross as fees and a grant of up to 2,000 euros gross for travel, accommodation and expenses at LABoral.

Please send a one-page idea proposal, a one-page visual description and a CV in PDF format to produccion [arobas] laboralcentrodearte [point] org before April 17 2015. The proposal should outline the project and describe—on a high level—the building blocks required to make it.

SECRET is an international exhibition and events programme at Science Gallery Dublin that will explore the social and technological aspects of secrecy, particularly the future of surveillance, espionage and privacy. Why do humans like to keep and reveal secrets and why are we attracted to mysteries and puzzles? When are secrets a good thing and who has the right to keep them? How do emerging technologies protect or undermine privacy? What secrets should never be revealed and where is more transparency needed?

From cryptography, leaks, hidden messages, secret satellites, big data, conspiracy theories, puzzles, easter eggs and cryptocurrencies, SECRET will ask how hackers, spies, journalists, psychologists, criminals, companies and governments are approaching the new world of secrets.

Do you have an artwork that shows secrecy in a new light? Are you designing a device that will change everything from privacy to piracy? Or maybe you research the psychological drive to keep secrets or solve puzzles? We want your exhibit, installation and event ideas.

Topics we’re interested in:

Surveillance, security, privacy and transparency
Psychology of secrecy, metacognition, development, trust and guilt
Cryptography, ciphers, quantum computing and lockpicking
Hacking, phreaking, computer forensics and urban exploration
Secrecy and privacy as aspects of psychological and personal development
Social networks, online privacy and celebrities
Big data, bioinformatics, and identity theft
Propaganda, government secrets, security
Corporate espionage, trade secrets and cryptocurrencies
Satellites, drones, CCTV cameras
Puzzles, games, mysteries and Easter eggs

LEAP SECOND FESTIVAL 2015

Deadline: 25 June 2015

Call for entries: Works lasting one second or less.
The festival is also interested in texts and essays.

The festival takes place on the leap second which occurs
30th June 2015 23:59:60 UTC.

Submission at festival website: http://noemata.net/leapsec26/
The closing date for submissions is the 25th of June.

The leap second festival is an open, free, distributed, international,
non-profit festival for art, technology and precarity coordinated on
the Internet. The festival intends to take place on every leap second
in the years to come. The first festival took place in 2012 and is
documented at http://noemata.net/leapsec/.

This second festival marks the 26. leap second and will be arranged
the 30th of June 2015 23:59:60 (UTC), lasting one second. During this
second all the works are exhibited, performed, and executed. The event
is documented afterwards.

The festival focus is on the leap second as
i) deviation and glitch, a bug in the machination of time,
ii) a reality-check and celebration (glitz) of natural cycles taking
place at the moment when the ideal time we have on our clocks is
synchronized with the real time based on the rotation of the earth;
iii) precarity, an unpredictable and insecure condition, affecting
material/physical and social/psychological welfare – from how this
inserted second wreaks havoc in computers worldwide, to how a technology
(of time and production) aggravate the precariat as social class;
iv) a marginal and intermittent existence, short and discontinuous,
autonomous and freely self-inserted/-exploited/-realized/-precarizated,
v) as art, out of time, out of order, out of line, a defiant leap;
vi) a school of sudden realization, perhaps – without past or future –
not here, not now, not this, not that – letting time fall away, together
with its minions – becoming vast and expansive beyond the seconds of the
wobbling earth – with the leap second as their paradox.

Chiricahua National Monument Artist-In-Residence Program

Deadline: March 15, 2015 {POSTMARK}

Artist-In-Residence Program
Southeast Arizona Group
National Park Service
U.S. Department of the Interior
Chiricahua National Monument
Arizona
2015 Season

Artists have had a long-standing impact on the formations, expansion, and direction of our national parks.

Today, painters continue to document national park landscapes with contemporary approaches and techniques. Writers, photographers, sculptors, musicians, composers, and other performing artists also draw upon the multifaceted quality of parks for inspiration.

These artists translate the national park’s purpose, as a place of pleasure and preservation, into images which bring others enjoyment and a deeper understanding of the parks many Americans may never visit.

Chiricahua National Monument’s Artist-In-Residence program continues this tradition.

Artist-In-Residence Program

The Artist-In-Residence program at Chiricahua National Monument offers professional writers, composers, and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. Selected artists are given free accommodations for two to four week periods. No stipend is provided.

How to Apply

Artists must submit application materials and art samples exactly as indicated on the entry form. Insufficient, or excess materials, are causes for application rejection, as is an artist’s proposed use of a work already in progress as a residency project.

The Selection Process

A panel of professionals from diverse artistic disciplines will choose two to three finalists, with an alternate. Selection is based on artistic merit, the Statement of Purpose, and appropriateness to a national park residency.

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.
