Laboratoire-résidence Bloc 8
– 2014
Date de tombée : 3 février 2013

Praxis Art Actuel lance son appel de dossiers pour la programmation du Bloc 8. Ce Bloc se tiendra du printemps à l’automne 2014.

Nous invitons les artistes professionnels à proposer des projets innovants qui s’éloignent du cadre habituel d’exposition, s’infiltrent dans l’espace public et s’inspirent des caractéristiques du lieu dans lequel ils se retrouvent afin de le questionner, de l’interpréter, de le modeler et de le transformer.

Les projets peuvent toucher à la fois à des particularités et des caractéristiques géographiques, sociales, économiques ou culturelles de la Ville de Sainte-Thérèse ou de la région des Laurentides.

Les artistes sont ainsi invités à redéfinir des problématiques liées à leur démarche artistique ou approfondir certaines facettes de leur pratique.

Praxis Art Actuel s’intéresse aux processus de création axés sur le travail in situ ou in socius, en lien avec des groupes (individus, étudiants, travailleurs, commerçants…), des organismes, des espaces, des lieux ou des territoires considérés dans leur spécificité.

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Seeking video work for a curated project by Suzanne Carte & Su-Ying Lee (Under New Management) taking place in March 2013 at ODD Gallery at the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC) in Dawson City, Yukon. The exhibition will take the form of a video rental store that carries artists’ videos. The project employs the characteristics of the retail environment to connect to the local community while, challenging the gallery’s role as an intermediary that delimits the viewer’s direct access to art. “Customers” are asked to pay what they wish, which can be interpreted as cash, a non-monetary exchange, critique, or no remuneration. This facet is in place as an experimental form of engagement, where artists have the opportunity to receive responses directly from viewers. In turn, the viewer has an uncommon channel to the artist. In addition to payment, rental and return are also on an honour-system basis therefore removing barriers that exist due to membership, deposit, and return policies at commercial ventures.

Background
This is the second iteration of the Under New Management video “rental” store. As part of a larger exhibition/project, the first store took place in Toronto from August 3-14, 2010. This method of disseminating video art to the general public was exceptionally popular during its short run.

For information about the project visit: http://www.mediafieldsjournal.org/storage/issue1/Hogan/Media-Fields-1-Hogan.pdf

http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/article/839799–queen-west-has-a-surprise-in-store

Terms
Your DVD will be loaned to anyone who wishes to borrow it. Customers will pay whatever they wish and any fee collected for your work will be sent to you. The video will be archived in the Video Store Rental collection for future exhibitions.

Submissions
We are accepting work on DVD immediately. Feel free to send several titles.

-Any duration, style and genre
-Package your submission in a 191 x 135 mm DVD case
-Front of case: label image, artist’s name and title
-Back of case: synopsis and duration and any other info you wish to include i.e. short bio, website
-Work will be loaned to the general public. It is crucial that you note if your title contains any explicit language, nudity, sex or violence. This will not prevent your title from being selected for inclusion. This information will be used to make our « customers » aware of content

**Fill out and return the agreement form with your submission

Submissions: Open Now

Glenfiddich and OCAD University are issuing a « Call to Artists » currently living and creating art in Canada to enter the internationally renowned competition for the prestigious 2013 Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize.

The Canadian winner will be one of only eight artists worldwide to be awarded the art community’s coveted prize to live and work at the Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. The three-month residency valued at $20,000 per artist represents the Glenfiddich commitment to the arts and the communities it serves.

Now in its 12th year, the Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize annually attracts over 100 submissions across the country from the visual arts. The prize covers the cost of travel, living expenses and materials throughout the residency. From the submissions, four jury members choose seven finalists and ultimately one winner.

While living in crofts (traditional small Scottish farm houses), artists are encouraged to find inspiration from the unique setting in the Scottish Highlands. The experience provides an opportunity unlike any other for artists to work in an international community, share in a dialogue with other artists and foster cross-disciplinary ideas.

The Glenfiddich Artist-in-Residence Prize has sponsored over 84 artists since its inception in 2002.

Queens Museum of Art

Open Call: Projects for
the Museum of Arte Útil

Submission deadline:
February 15, 2013

opencall [arobas] arteutil [point] net

www.arteutil.net
www.queensmuseum.org
www.vanabbemuseum.nl
www.taniabruguera.com

The Museum of Arte Útil is a collaboration between the artist Tania Bruguera, the Queens Museum of Art, New York and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. The Museum of Arte Útil is the result of Tania Bruguera’s decade of research into a concept that emphasizes effectiveness and implementation over representation, looking at historical and contemporary examples of alternative strands in socially informed art practice.

« Útil » as a term refers to something being useful. But it goes further than the English translation, encompassing the idea of a tool or device. Bruguera states that « Arte Útil » moves beyond a propositional format, into one that actively creates, develops and implements new functionalities to benefit society at large. »

The project will comprise research, an online platform, an association of Arte Útil practitioners, a series of public projects, a lab presentation at the Queens Museum of Art beginning in February 2013, culminating in the transformation of the old building of the Van Abbemuseum into the Museum of Arte Útil in the Fall of 2013 and a publication. The aim is to present a survey of past and present projects that are rooted in the notion of art’s use to its users and to society at large. Central to the project’s various forms is this open call.

The notion of what constitutes Arte Útil has been arrived at via a set of criteria that Bruguera and the participating museums’ curators have formulated. These criteria will set the parameters of the project and its working methodology. Arte Útil projects should:

1- Propose new uses for art within society
2- Challenge the field within which it operates (civic, legislative, pedagogical, scientific, economic, etc)
3- Be ‘timing specific,’ responding to current urgencies
4- Be implemented and function in real situations
5- Replace authors with initiators and spectators with users
6- Have practical, beneficial outcomes for its users
7- Pursue sustainability whilst adapting to changing conditions
8- Re-establish aesthetics as a system of transformation

We are inviting the public to submit information on past or ongoing projects that align with these criteria. Submitted projects should meet as many of these criteria as possible. The selected projects will be listed on www.arteutil.net, to be launched in February and will be considered for inclusion in the artist association, the exhibition at the Queens Museum, the Van Abbemuseum, and/or the publication. Projects can be submitted by anyone, from any field, and need not be submitted by the initiators of the project.

An open call form can be accessed and submitted at www.arteutil.net, where further information on the project can be found.

The deadline for project submissions is February 15th, 2013.

Beam Camp Seeks Proposals for Spectacular Projects

Worldwide call seeks ideas from Engineers, Architects, Designers, Sculptors, Builders, Agriculturists, Videographers, Technologists, Artists and Makers of all kinds

Past Project Images: http://flic.kr/s/aHsj5LFz65
Proposal Submission Info and Form: http://www.beamcamp.com/project-proposal/

Beam Camp, the summer camp for the fine and manual arts, technology and collaboration, today opens its annual international search to find its 2013 Beam Projects. The large-scale collaborative projects are realized by Beam campers, aged 7-17, and staff at the camp’s 106-acre facility in Strafford, New Hampshire.

Projects are budgeted at $10,000. Winning designers receive a $2,500 honorarium and are invited to visit camp during the project’s production.

Proposals can be submitted on the Beam Camp website until Friday, January 11, 2013 with Semi-finalists announced on January 18, 2013. (submission page: http://www.beamcamp.com/project-proposal/).

Beam offers these prompts for proposals:
– Project should be big and ambitious and result in a unique and spectacular product.
– Project Master should have experience in executing the kind of idea proposed.
– Projects should take advantage of Beam’s outdoor space and rural location, but need not be about camp, children or nature.

Beam Camp Co-Director Danny Kahn says of the Project, “it’s a chance for kids to walk around inside the mind of a designer of big things and systems. The kids get to learn project-specific making skills and practice the tools of collaboration, and more importantly see how to bring to life a passionately held and expertly developed idea.”

The Beam Projects for summer 2012 reflected Beam’s core emphasis on cultivating creative thinking and applied collaborative work. In “Creature Quake,” Beam Project 2012.1, landscape architects Rachel Kunreuther and Douglas Stookey’s proposal, Beam campers and staff constructed enormous creatures in earth, sky and lake. In “Navigating Dreams,” Beam Project 2012.2, proposed by Matthew Springett Associates, Beam campers and staff created a night sky of LED constellations controlled and navigated by a boat-machine.

Previous winners include Caitlin Berrigan’s “Macro/Micro Domes,” Steve Gerberich and Nathaniel Lieb’s “Beam Fleet,” Jan Drojarski and Jon Bocksel’s “Jungletopia,” Christine Baumgartner and Manuel Kretzer’s “Float With The Flowers,” the solar-powered film “A Trip to the Sun” by Daniela Kostova and Mike DeSeve, WIgnall & Moore’s “The Stories of Machines That Never Flew” and “The Habitats of Parker Mountain” by pragmatopia and architecture students of the University of Kassel, Germany.

ABOUT BEAM CAMP Beam Camp offers two 4 week summer sessions for kids aged 7-17 in Strafford, New Hampshire. Campers cultivate hands-on skills while exploring innovative thinking, design and the creative process. They swim, hike, play games and enjoy 750 acres of mountain, forests and lakes, while transforming ideas into artifacts and personal achievement into community success.

scientists and educators alike are invited to apply.

Our vessel and home during our time in the remote Arctic, a traditionally rigged
Barquentine, is equipped with workspace, common areas, and ample room for privacy
and creativity.

International call for proposals for 
2013 residency on Andrea Zittel’s Indy Island

Deadline: Friday, January 11, 2013
Indianapolis Museum of Art
4000 Michigan Road
Indianapolis, IN 46208

www.imamuseum.org/islandresidency

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is issuing a call for proposals for a six-week summer 2013 residency on Andrea Zittel’s Indy Island within the IMA’s 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park. Graduate and undergraduate students and professionals in the fields of art, design, architecture and performing arts are encouraged to apply to customize and reside on Indy Island.

Anchored in the 35-acre lake within 100 Acres, Indy Island is a habitable, « off-the-grid » structure accessible by rowboat. At about 20 feet in diameter, the island serves as an experimental living structure that examines our daily needs. Residents collaborate with Zittel by adapting and modifying the island’s structure according to their individual needs. 

Despite Indy Island’s inherent limitations, the structure and residency are relatively open-ended.

The aims of past projects were diverse, including:
• In 2010, Herron School of Art and Design (Indianapolis) students Jessica Dunn and Michael Runge activated the installation through a series of visitor interactions based on a system of exchange with their project titled Give and Take.
• The 2011 island resident was Katherine Ball, a student of Portland State University’s Art + Social Practice MFA program (Portland, Oregon). Over the course of her residency, titled No Swimming, Ball initiated a series of ecologically remedial interventions in the Park’s lake and engaged a local audience through a series of public programs centered on the topic of water.
• For his 2012 residency titled INDIGENOUS: Into the Wild with A. Bitterman, Kansas City-based artist A. Bitterman created a series of sculptural interventions throughout the Park that prompted visitors to question their relationship with « the wild. » To further this inquiry, Bitterman acted as an element of nature himself, and relied on visitors for food and refrained from verbal communication.

It’s important that the 2013 residency addresses concerns not previously explored. There must be a strong rationalization for why the proposed project must take place on Indy Island. Proposals that don’t specifically relate to the island or 100 Acres will not be considered.

To apply:
Apply for the residency at www.imamuseum.org/islandresidency. There, applicants can find photos and renderings of Indy Island, as well as further details about the selection process.

Proposals are due Friday, January 11, 2013, and should include a brief written statement and renderings of the proposed project. The residency must last six weeks or longer and be conducted between May and September 2013.

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.

International Helen M. Salzbert Artist in Residence Program, Book Arts, Florida

Deadline: January 22, 2013 (RECEIVE) or (HAND DELIVERY)
Stipend of $5000
Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program
Jaffe Center for Book Arts
Wimberly Library
Florida Atlantic University
Boca Raton, FL
Fall 2013

The Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program funds two working residencies for artists each academic year at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, in the fall and spring semesters. Artists working in the book arts (and other media, too, as long as the creative project can be thought of as book arts related) are encouraged to apply for this prestigious and competitive award. We accept applications from artists from all over the world.

Poet and artist Helen M. Salzberg established the Salzberg AIR Program in 2011. Income from this endowed fund enables artists working in the book arts to come to the Jaffe Center on a semester basis to work and teach at the center. While here, the artist will produce a creative project using JCBA studios and also teach a workshop for FAU students and the general public and mentor FAU students as his or her schedule allows. The Salzberg AIR Program gives our students the opportunity to work alongside highly talented and creative book artists.

Two residencies will be awarded each academic year: one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester. The Artist in Residence (AIR) selected each semester will get his or her own office at JCBA and full use of the JCBA studios (papermaking, letterpress and book studios). The artist’s residency will last for 12 weeks, though shorter or longer residencies may be accommodated as needed. In the application process, if an artist has a particularly ambitious creative project in mind, the artist may apply for a residency that would encompass two semesters. Should the two-semester residency be awarded in this case, the artist would be expected to teach one workshop in each semester.

The AIR receives a stipend of $5,000 for the semester. The artist is responsible for transportation, housing, parking, meals and materials for his or her creative project. JCBA will provide materials for workshops.

APPLICATION
Artists who wish to compete for consideration for this prestigious opportunity must submit their application and support materials for review by a JCBA panel comprised of book artists and book arts enthusiasts. Your application packet must be submitted via post or delivered in person to JCBA and should include the following:
1. Completed application, or suitable cover letter that supplies the same information requested on the application.
2. Brief narrative of the creative project you envision.
3. Brief narrative of the workshop you would like to teach.
4. Current resume.
5. Any support materials you care to include: we welcome images of your work, sketches for the creative project, video… be creative and have fun.

All applications will be weighed equally by our panel.
