Thématique de Manif d’art 9
Le thème de la neuvième édition de la biennale est inspiré par son emplacement, du fait que nous pouvons facilement regarder « à travers » la ville de Québec et voir le monde naturel (l’imposition sans équivoque d’une ville sur le paysage et la nature perçue au delà de ses horizons), de même que par le moment choisi, de février à avril 2019, période qui marque habituellement la transition du rude hiver au printemps et à l’été.

Le titre de la biennale, Si petits entre les étoiles, si grands contre le ciel, est une paraphrase de paroles de Leonard Cohen (Stories of the Street, 1967). Tout au long de sa vie, cet artiste extraordinaire – incidemment de la province de Québec – s’est préoccupé de notre rôle au sein de l’ordre naturel des choses. Nos accomplissements culturels, dans cette perspective, devraient être compris dans un contexte beaucoup plus vaste et universel qui met à l’épreuve l’idée conventionnelle voulant que l’art soit opposé à la nature, qu’il transcende en quelque sorte ce qui en fait partie ou, à tout le moins, en représente une amélioration. L’art est plutôt une institution beaucoup trop humaine et, en reconnaissant l’humanité (en dépit de notre tendance à croire en l’exceptionnalisme) à titre de phénomène naturel, nous attirons l’attention sur les continuités entre l’art et le quotidien.

Comment soumettre un dossier ?
Pour participer, soumettez-nous votre projet préliminaire par courriel au plus tard le 22 avril 2018 à l’adresse production [arobas] manifdart [point] org.

2018 Call For Submissions OFF THE BEAT(EN) TRACK
Deadline June 4, 2018

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 the on-line application.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Off The Beat(en) Track for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2019 programming.

A year ago, NAISA staff and its board of directors decided to move the organization from Toronto to the Village of South River, ON – very much Off the Beaten Track.

For its 2019 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions that address the ideas related to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track and creative ways that this can be shared.

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track. 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, interactive installation exhibit, audio-visual screening, radio or internet broadcast, telematics, VR/gaming, 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 4, 2018. 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.

Call for Submissions for Holding Patterns

Art Spin is gearing up for its tenth season of programming and is looking for submissions for an exciting new exhibition titled Holding Patterns, scheduled for October 2018. This exhibition will take place in a storage locker facility located in Toronto’s south Junction neighbourhood, animating a series of storage locker units with a wide array of art projects.

CURATORIAL FRAMEWORK:

We are looking for project submissions that will respond to and think critically about the following curatorial framework:

Recognizing the shifts, upheavals and transience that storage lockers often suggest, Holding Patterns will explore movement, space, belonging, material culture, and transition as themes that animate personal narratives and histories of place more broadly. These issues are particularly important for artists with lived experiences of site-lessness, displacement, or exclusion. In light of this, priority will be given to artists that identify as indigenous, LGBTQ+, or from visible minorities. Drawing together these varied realities of space, storage, excess, and access, Holding Patterns will explore not only the personal stories, but the histories of urban development and community migration that accompany them.

Some of the ideas which this project has inspired in its curators and which artists are invited to think critically about are:

  • self-representation via the material goods one owns (the notion that storage locker contents reveal a type of “self-curation”)
  • storage lockers and their contents as a metaphor for memory and/or forgetting, or consciousness and unconsciousness
  • the storage locker as a receptor for a seemingly contradictory objects that range from the precious to the useless
  • what do these relatively recent spaces say about consumer capitalism and the culture of materialism
  • the idea that at the core of material culture and the insatiable drive to consume/possess lies a fundamental denial of mortality
  • what does it mean to be “site-less” both in the literal sense of the word but also in the conceptual, more nuanced sense of being relegated to the fringes of society where one occupies a form of existential site-lessness
  • the position of site-lessness as an antecedent to resistance or revolution both personal and political

Animated Feature.
Narrative Animated Short.

Student Animation.

“Well, it’s that time again when Ottawa is pleasantly bombarded with a feast of animation wonders from around the globe,” says Chris Robinson, OIAF Artistic Director, “This is always an exciting time for us as we watch all the new submissions and slowly start to see the festival’s identity for the year being formed. We’re particularly excited about the brand new VR animation competition. It’s a testament to the quality of work being done in this new medium that we’ve decided it warranted a competition.

NAISA is pleased to launch its
2018 Call For Submissions OFF THE BEAT(EN) TRACK
Deadline: June 4, 2018
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 the on-line application.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Off The Beat(en) Track for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2019 programming.

A year ago, NAISA staff and its board of directors decided to move the organization from Toronto to the Village of South River, ON – very much Off the Beaten Track. Sound and media art centres and dissemination points are typically in urban centres but now with greater access to and availability of digital technology, a dissemination point can be anywhere where there is internet access. NAISA’s early programming explored the connections between natural acoustic environments and media arts and so NAISA’s move to the Near North and its proximity to Algonquin Park brings it closer to its origins and provides NAISA the opportunity to present works that intersect between the natural and digital realms. NAISA’s facility, the NAISA North Media Arts Centre, functions as a hub for artists in the region to network with each other and experience NAISA’s programming, including Arts Meetups, Artist Residencies, Interactive Exhibitions and Performances, all under one roof.

For its 2019 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions that address the ideas related to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track and creative ways that this can be shared.

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track. 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, interactive installation exhibit, audio-visual screening, radio or internet broadcast, telematics, VR/gaming, 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 4, 2018. 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.

Gallery submissions

Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture is an artist-driven organization that thrives at the intersection of art and ideas, promoting innovation, experimentation, and dialogue, while fostering active, creative, and collaborative communities. We offer a plenitude of portals to local, national, and international contemporary art.

Through engagement and risk, Latitude 53 creates programming that explores the boundaries of contemporary art. Our programming works to build a lively and engaged artistic community and diverse audiences through an ongoing responsiveness to artists, ideas, and questions that are relevant to our community.

Latitude 53 programs two main spaces year-round, for exhibitions proposed by artists and curators from across Canada and elsewhere, including emerging to established. We seek exhibitions for these two gallery spaces (labelled the Main Space and ProjEX Room on the floor plan) that range from solo shows, to curated group projects, to works-in-progress and new developments that would benefit from constructive critical feedback. We are also interested in proposals for larger-scale projects that would inhabit both spaces, and perhaps incorporate our community gallery space, or otherwise challenge the borders and shapes of our exhibition programming.

As well as these two spaces, Latitude 53 makes available space for community-oriented programming, primarily in our smaller Community Gallery, facing onto the patio. This space is also programmed on a submission basis.

Our three exhibition spaces are all located within our 10242 106 St. location in downtown Edmonton. For detailed dimensions of each space, please see our floor plan.

Call For Submissions – Main Gallery Spaces
For our two main spaces, artists and curators are invited to submit individual or group proposals in any media. Proposals should specifically address the space both in the format of the exhibition and as an exhibition site in the city of Edmonton and in the context of Canadian communities. Edmonton is the northernmost city of its size in Canada, and Latitude 53 specifically seeks work that will resonate with the city, push local and national dialogues further, and approach local, regional, and national identities and social politics. Proposals should also consider the idea of what is contemporary visual culture.

Latitude 53 has a non-discriminatory exhibition policy. We pay artists fees in agreement with the CARFAC schedule, pay travel, accommodation and for shipping of work.

Latitude 53 is committed to exhibiting artists at all stages of their careers, emerging or established, and to evaluating each project by its own merits. With this in mind, please take the time to consider and communicate what exhibiting here could mean to you at the current point in your practice and career. If you are applying to, or showing at other locations in the Edmonton area in the next year, please let us know in your application.

Currently, our programming advisory committee meets twice a year to review submissions after deadlines April 30 and September 30.

Proposal requirements
Project description;
Artist’s or Curatorial statement;
Curriculum Vitae (4 pages maximum);
15 digital images of proposed work. If this work has yet to be created, please provide a selection of work to provide context and to illustrate your competency;
Video or Audio work in Mac-compatibile formats, or with file links;
Image list (including title, medium, date, and size); and
Contact information
Please include all written material as PDF files, and send submissions by email only to program [arobas] latitude53 [point] org with “Programming Submission” in the subject line. Please ensure that attachments total to less than 10MB; if more space is required for time-based or intermedia work please provide a link via DropBox or Vimeo.

You will receive an acknowledgement of your submission.

We do not accept submissions by mail.

Cripta747 is thrilled to launch the open call for the second edition of its international Residency Programme.

About
The programme aims to support the creative development of artists, curators and researchers from any field of contemporary culture, without any geographical or age limit.
The Residency takes place at Cripta747’s headquarters, an industrial building located in the North of Turin. Following the city’s vocation for an artistic and cultural model focused on investigation and production processes, Cripta747 provides fellows with the opportunity to live and work in Turin for 8 weeks during September – November 2018 while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the city’s creative environment.
This process-based residency aims at implementing and rethinking new strategies in research and artistic practices, refocusing the attention onto the production processes.
Through the fellowship, it favours mobility, fosters exchange between local and foreign researchers, and supports both material and conceptual production.
An international scientific board that consists of three members (curators, artists, directors of selected European art institutions) that change every year, characterizes and orients every edition of the residency through the final selection of the residents. For this edition the board is composed by: Alessio Antoniolli (Director of Gasworks, London), Giovanni Carmine, (Director of Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen) and Eva Fabbris (member of the Curatorial and Research Department of Fondazione Prada, Milan)
Fellows are invited to present the results of their researches developed in residence through a public event and an open studio.

Fellowship
Each fellowships whole amount is up to € 6.000 and covers daily allowance, accommodation, studio rent at Cripta747 and production costs.

résidence de recherche et de commissariat

Vidéographe est un centre de recherche et de diffusion de l’image en mouvement. Ceci comprend les expérimentations en art vidéo, animation, arts numériques, essai, documentaire, vidéo danse et fiction. Nos actions concernent les œuvres actuelles autant que les œuvres historiques dont nous favorisons la reconnaissance et la compréhension.

En développement depuis 1971, notre catalogue compte aujourd’hui plus de 2 000 œuvres réalisées par plus de 800 artistes, activistes et citoyen.nes engagé.es, majoritairement québécois.es. Ceci en fait l’une des plus importantes collections canadiennes d’art vidéo.

Cette résidence de recherche et de commissariat vise à multiplier les points de vue sur cette collection et à stimuler la réflexion sur l’image en mouvement. Nous invitons ainsi les artistes, chercheurs et commissaires à approfondir un pan de recherche à partir des œuvres de notre catalogue. Le projet sélectionné pourra porter sur des questions thématiques, formelles ou historiques, et pourra se concentrer sur le corpus d’un ou plusieurs artistes. Dans le cadre de cette résidence, nous nous attendons à ce qu’une programmation d’œuvres de notre catalogue soit élaborée et qu’un essai soit rédigé par la personne sélectionnée. La programmation vidéo sera présentée dans le cadre de notre saison 2019-2020 et sera disponible en ligne, accompagnée de l’essai, sur Vithèque.com

Un comité de sélection évaluera les propositions sur les bases de la pertinence par rapport à notre collection, la complémentarité par rapport à notre programmation, ainsi que la rigueur de la proposition. Les projets étudiants ne seront pas acceptés.

Vidéographe reconnaît la richesse de la diversité culturelle, sexuelle, identitaire et linguistique québécoise. Nous encourageons ainsi les personnes issues de groupes traditionnellement sous-représentés, de minorités ou de groupes marginalisés à proposer des projets.

La personne retenue recevra un montant forfaitaire de 2 000$. La résidence, d’une durée d’un à trois mois, est prévue pour le printemps 2019. Vidéographe assumera les frais de transport et d’hébergement pour une période d’un mois aux personnes ne résidant pas à Montréal. Le travail pourra également être effectué en ligne, via Vithèque. Nous accompagnerons les personnes sélectionnées dans leurs recherches dans le catalogue.

Pour soumettre votre dossier, veuillez nous faire parvenir :

Vous pouvez soumettre votre candidature du 1er avril jusqu’au 30 avril 2018, avant minuit (UTC+2).

La République et Canton de Genève, en partenariat avec l’association Laps, ont ouvert un lieu de résidences dans la Maison Baron en 2012. Ce projet intitulé Embassy of Foreign Artists vise à créer, par la présence de créateurs venus d’ailleurs et leurs échanges avec des artistes et organismes culturels locaux, un réseau d’interactions propice au développement de regards novateurs.

EoFA est un lieu de recherche et de création pluridisciplinaire basé à Genève. Nos espaces accueillent les différentes étapes du processus créatif, des premières réflexions à la présentation aboutie. La conception et la réalisation d’une œuvre sont des étapes importantes. Nous offrons la possibilité au public de suivre ces mécanismes et d’interagir avec ses producteurs afin de mieux comprendre leurs démarches.

Nous portons une attention particulière à la qualité des projets que nous accueillons et pensons nos activités comme des outils d’émancipation et des alternatives à la culture mondiale standardisée. Notre rôle est d’offrir un espace et un soutien à des démarches originales et critiques qui interagissent avec ces domaines et s’inscrivent dans une réflexion sur notre société.

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.

Demande de qualifications (DDQ) :

Artiste résident

 

Date limite :                Le lundi 23 avril 2018, à 16 h (HE)

Budget:                       150 000 $ CA (TVH en sus)

Personne-ressource : Melissa Black, agente d’art public

Melissa [point] Black [arobas] ottawa [point] ca, 613-244-4261

 

Le Programme d’art public de la Ville d’Ottawa invite les artistes à soumettre leur candidature d’artiste résident pour la conception, la fabrication et l’installation d’une œuvre d’art permanente pour la rue Elgin, selon les modalités décrites dans le présent document. Ce concours en trois étapes est tenu conformément à la Politique d’art public.

Le Conseil municipal a approuvé le plan fonctionnel des rues Elgin (de la rue Gloucester à la promenade Reine-Élizabeth) et Waverley (de la rue Elgin à la ruelle Jack-Purcell). La conduite d’eau principale et les égouts profonds sous ces rues sont parmi les plus anciens de la ville, datant de la fin des années 1800. Le remplacement de cette infrastructure vieillissante est une occasion en or d’évaluer les revêtements routiers et d’en revoir la conception afin qu’ils soient conformes à la désignation de rue principale traditionnelle du Plan officiel, à la politique sur les rues complètes et aux normes de conception accessibles de la Ville d’Ottawa.

 

Artiste résident
Le concours d’artiste en résidence pour la rue Elgin vise à recueillir des propositions de projets novateurs et captivants de la part d’artistes qui s’intéressent dans leur travail à la collaboration créative et au dialogue interdisciplinaire. La résidence est l’occasion pour un ou plusieurs artistes d’utiliser des stratégies innovantes dans la création conjointe d’une œuvre d’art public avec divers membres de la communauté ou différentes entreprises afin d’élargir les horizons artistiques de la collectivité et son lien avec l’art.

Le ou les artistes retenus organiseront des séances d’interaction et de collaboration avec la communauté de la rue Elgin pendant leur résidence de cinq mois, qui aura lieu d’août à décembre 2018. Cette période de création communautaire et inclusive donnera l’occasion à divers secteurs de la rue Elgin d’échanger sur l’art public en explorant les défis et les possibilités associés à chaque site. La résidence permettra de créer des œuvres d’art public permanentes, qui seront installées le long de la rue Elgin. On encourage aussi l’installation d’art public temporaire.

 

Admissibilité

Conforme au principe d’égalité des chances, le concours s’adresse aux artistes et aux collectifs d’artistes professionnels ayant déjà créé des œuvres d’art communautaire et des œuvres d’art public permanentes. Les employés de la Ville d’Ottawa ne sont pas admissibles.

 

La Ville d’Ottawa prône les activités culturelles inclusives et représentatives de ses diverses communautés, dont les membres se distinguent par différentes caractéristiques, comme l’ascendance, les capacités, l’âge, le pays d’origine, la culture, le sexe, le revenu, la langue, la race et l’orientation sexuelle. D’ailleurs, la nation algonquine Anishinabeg est reconnue comme nation autochtone hôte d’Ottawa. La Ville d’Ottawa s’engage à appuyer les activités culturelles qui répondent aux appels à l’action du rapport de la Commission de vérité et réconciliation. Les artistes inuits, métis et des Premières Nations sont encouragés à participer. La Ville d’Ottawa entend accorder les mêmes droits, statuts et privilèges aux groupes des deux langues officielles.

Humber Galleries has grown out of a rich polytechnic environment where art is one of many ways of learning and operating in the world. We aspire to reflect the diversity, in all senses, of the student body of Humber College, our neighbours, and the international art community by offering experimental models in art-making and co-creative programming with underrepresented peoples. Diversity is complex because our nature as human beings is complex. Humber Galleries aspires to offer programming that resists simplification and models this complexity. We are committed to providing a workplace that is inclusive and accessible to all. The Hiring Manager will work with applicants requesting accommodation at any stage of the hiring process.

+++

Humber Galleries are situated on the traditional territories of the Ojibwe Anishinabe people in Adobigok, meaning “Place of the Alders” in the Ojibwe language. This region encompasses several present day First Nation communities including families from the Otter, Turtle, and Amik (Beaver) clans.

Humber Galleries are part of the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. Humber’s polytechnic model is the “third way” between the university and the trade college; it blends the creation of new knowledge and the solving of real world problems. Because we are located within a polytechnic environment, Humber Galleries is a space where contemporary art and polytechnic learning come together and influence each other. Humber’s core values of creativity, innovation, problem-solving, adaptability, and collaboration guide our mandate. Our two physical spaces are accessible sites of social, political, educational, philosophical, and quantitative inquiry: North Space (North Campus) and L Space (Lakeshore Campus). We are an active collaborator in the social and educational fabric of Humber College, our neighbourhood, and the contemporary art discipline.
