Des projets qui positionnent la figure et le rôle de l’artiste dans l’actualité glocale 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, soit Granby (Québec, Canada) et ses environs.

Ouverte à la diversité des pratiques de l’art actuel, la sélection des projets vise à refléter une pluralité d’horizons culturels et identitaires afin de contribuer à enrichir l’ancrage et la portée de l’art dans les communautés. Nous accueillons les propositions d’artistes émergents, à mi-carrière ou établis.

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

OTTAWA INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL SEEKS SUBMISSIONS FOR 2018
The Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), North America’s leading animation film festival, is now accepting film entries for competition in 2018! Entries are due May 25 and there is no entry fee.

>From September 26-30, Ottawa will once again play host to the animation universe; a hub of inventive, mesmerizing, and provocative art. OIAF invites animators from around the globe to submit their recent work in the following major categories:

Animated Feature.
Narrative Animated Short.
Non-Narrative Animated Short.
Student Animation.
Commissioned Animation (series, commercials, music videos).
Young Audiences – Preschool, Ages 6-12.
VR Animation.

OIAF18 features a brand new VR animation category acknowledging and celebrating the exhilarating and pioneering work being done in Virtual Reality.

In addition to category prizes, submissions will also be considered for a variety of craft and other awards including the Festival’s Academy Award recognized Grand Prize for Short Animation. In addition, there are National competitions for Canadian animators and a Canadian student competition.

“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. Viewing and judging the VR entries will also require us to engage these projects in a whole new manner (goggles and interactivity!).”

Each year the OIAF receives more than 2,000 entries that are reviewed by the Festival’s programming team. Approximately 150 films will be chosen for Official Competition and Out-of-Competition Showcase screenings. During OIAF18, juries comprised of animation professionals, media and local kids will sit with the audience to judge the festival competition screenings.

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 :
•    Une description de votre projet (1 000 mots maximum);
•    Votre curriculum vitae;
•    De la documentation visuelle et textuelle de vos projets de commissariats antérieurs [maximum 15 images (max : 1024 px de large, 72 dpi)];
•    Vos besoins en ce qui concerne le déplacement et l’hébergement.

À noter :
Si vous avez des questions par rapport à notre collection, ou désirez un accès temporaire à cette dernière via Vithèque afin de préparer votre proposition, veuillez en faire la demande à notre conservatrice Karine Boulanger à collection [arobas] videographe [point] org.

DATE LIMITE POUR SOUMETTRE VOTRE DOSSIER: 15 mai 2018

Seuls les dossiers envoyés par courriel seront acceptés. Un accusé de réception sera émis. Merci d’indiquer RÉSIDENCE DE COMMISSARIAT comme intitulé de votre courriel et d’envoyer votre dossier à Olivia Lagacé à info [arobas] videographe [point] org.

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.

Humber Galleries

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.
