“Pepsi financera des idées positives grâce à des bourses de plus de 1 million de dollars dans le cadre du Projet Pepsi Ici c’est mieux au Canada
Une nouvelle enquête révèle que les Canadiens veulent améliorer leur monde mais n’en ont pas les moyens financiers ni le savoir-faire
Montréal (QC), le 26 mai 2010 – Une nouvelle enquête commandée par Pepsi indique que 92 pour cent de Canadiens aimeraient faire quelque chose pour améliorer le monde autour d’eux, mais faute d’argent et de savoir-faire, un grand nombre n’arrivent pas à concrétiser leurs idées.
Les Canadiens qui rêvent de changement auront maintenant les moyens de concrétiser leurs idées grâce au Projet Pepsi Ici c’est mieux au Canada, un mouvement précurseur visant à encourager l’innovation en matière de bien social. Au cours de la prochaine année, Pepsi donnera plus d’un million de dollars pour aider au financement d’idées de Canadiens, destinées à faire progresser le monde de façon positive.
Voici la marche à suivre : Les Canadiens (individus ou organismes) peuvent visiter le site www.icicestmieux.com (en ligne le 18 avril 2010) pour en savoir davantage sur le programme et télécharger une trousse de soumission. Ensuite, le 1er juin, ils peuvent soumettre leur idée pour obtenir une bourse dans l’une des six catégories suivantes : Santé, Arts et Culture, Nourriture et Logis, Environnement, Vie de quartier et Éducation. Les idées doivent être profitables, réalisables, constructives et prêtes à être exécutées.
Le 1er juillet, le vote débutera sur le site – ainsi ce sont les Canadiens et non pas Pepsi qui détermineront la personne ayant la meilleure idée et qui obtiendra la bourse.”

DAÏMÕN
APPEL DE PROJETS
Prochaines dates de tombée : 31 août 2010 et 31 janvier 2011

Situé dans l’édifice La Filature – une ancienne filature industrielle magnifiquement rénovée -, DAÏMÕN offre des ressources de création, de production et de diffusion dans les domaines de la photographie et des arts médiatiques.

Par ses programmes Artiste résident, Recherche et création, Photographie et impression numérique et Soutien aux premières œuvres, DAÏMÕN encourage les artistes à repousser les limites de leur pratique et à développer de nouvelles approches par le biais de l’image, de la vidéo, ainsi que des arts sonores et électroniques, y compris les pratiques installatives, interactives et performatives. DAÏMÕN privilégie les projets qui font valoir le jeu de plus en plus complexe des médias entre eux et qui interrogent les zones intermédiaires et non seulement les langages constitués des médias utilisés. Seuls les projets comportant un certain degré de recherche sont considérés.

Avec son STUDIÕ, espace de production et de diffusion, DAÏMÕN favorise la mise en espace et la mise à l’essai d’œuvres d’envergure, ainsi que le développement des pratiques transversales. Des rencontres publiques y sont organisées régulièrement afin de permettre à la communauté de s’initier au travail des artistes accueillis en résidence. Ce STUDIÕ multifonctionnel est offert aux artistes pour l’expérimentation, la production et la présentation d’œuvres dont les composantes requièrent une infrastructure technique particulière.

DAÏMÕN met à la disposition des artistes des équipements de tournage et d’enregistrement, et des salles de montage audio et vidéo numérique. Une chambre noire permet des développements argentiques de grand format (1m32) à partir de négatifs pouvant aller jusqu’à 280 mm. Un service d’impression numérique (EPSON Stylus 9600 Pro) est également disponible.

En photographie traditionnelle, les artistes doivent fournir leurs produits de développement et leurs papiers photographiques.

Soutien aux premières œuvres
DAÏMÕN maintient son soutien à la réalisation d’une première œuvre pour trois artistes de la région Ottawa-Gatineau. Les projets admissibles comportent la production d’une œuvre originale utilisant la vidéo, ou l’application de médias hybrides à des œuvres d’art.

Sont admissibles à ce programme, les artistes en début de carrière de la région Ottawa-Gatineau ayant une formation de base et voulant créer dans un contexte professionnel une première œuvre dans les champs de la pratique photographique, vidéographique ou des nouveaux médias. Les artistes professionnels de la région Ottawa-Gatineau ayant déjà une pratique artistique dans une autre discipline (peinture, sculpture, photographie, installation, etc.) et voulant développer une production en vidéo et/ou en nouveaux médias sont également admissibles.

DAÏMÕN fournit, pour la réalisation des projets un encadrement technique et artistique, l’accès aux équipements pendant une durée de trois (3) semaines et les services d’un technicien (30 heures). Tous les autres frais concernant la production de ces projets doivent être assumés par les artistes.

Modern Fuel’s 12th Annual Regional Juried Exhibition will be presented at Modern Fuel from August 7th to September 4th.
Opening reception: August 7, 2010 at 7pm.

Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre invites artists to submit works produced in visual and time-based disciplines: painting, sculpture, printmaking, video, installation, sound, etc.. We also welcome proposals for performative, interventionist and live works for presentation at the reception or according to a schedule. The exhibition reflects the diversity of artistic practices in the Eastern Ontario region, and often features time-based works alongside more traditionally visual works. The curatorial premise for this group exhibition is to reflect the wide-ranging practices of artists in the region and is meant to provide a forum in which to compare artistic modalities from one year to the next.

Note: According to our organizational mandate, Modern Fuel ARC will provide CARFAC fees to exhibiting artists.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Performance art at Propeller
Deadline date: June 14, 2010; Source: Propeller

Call for submission for an exhibition of Performance Art at the « Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts. » PCVA is an artists’
cooperative Gallery in existence since 1996, showcasing the work of senior and emerging artists featuring a wide
range of traditional and contemporary art.

« Within This Body » DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JUNE 14 2010
Curated by Mariam Magsi and Faye Mullen

Much like naturally inclined elements, the human body is a carcass of memories, vices and virtues. Through structural
processes that often push boundaries and test endurance, the human body, time and time again, transcends
experiences of hurt and agony and transforms them into opportunities for new awareness and self actualization.
Similar to other natural forms, the body repairs itself both internally and outwardly through restoration that may
appear to test the limitations of the body, hinging on direct endurance systems that have evolved alongside human
development. The human entity is known to be a great threshold for resilience, being able to revitalize the experience
of pain into scars that hold substantial significance over the person’s soul. It is with this constant recycling of pain
and pleasure that humanity moves forward, vigorous as ever in its quest to understand human nature. An inherent part
of this process is the creation of visible and/or invisible scars. Manifestations of stress on the human body can take
many different shapes and forms, physical and spiritual or psychological; however, it is through the body’s constant
recycling of the negative into the positive, that we gain insight into the agony and the ecstasy of all that is human.

In accordance with the theme of recycled pain, The Propeller Centre For The Visual Arts invites submissions and
proposals from local & international artists for an exhibition of Performance Art to be held on July.18.2010 (Sunday).
Proposals should be no longer than two pages in length, with primary focus on endurance and duration. The space
outside the immediate entrance of the gallery is also accessible and a floor plan is attached for familiarity with the
gallery’s interior. Please send all submissions to the following address no later than June.14.2010-:

984 Queen Street West
Toronto, ON M6J 1H1
(416) 504-7142

Requirements are as follows-:
-A cheque or money order for $25.00 made out to Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts with each submission
-A written proposal, no longer than 2 pages, outlining your statement, intent and a brief visual description of the
piece. Kindly limit your performance to 40 minutes or less.
-Images of recent performances or online links to your work
-C.V and Biography
-Your Technical requirements*

*Please note that artists are responsible for their own travel costs and are encouraged to apply for assistance from
their respective arts councils.

PCVA will be happy to send a formal letter of invitation to the selected artists; this may be used to secure the
necessary assistance.

NOTHING TO DECLARE – 25 October to 25 November 2011
Deadline: 30 August, 2010
We are initiating an independent project entitled Nothing to Declare, an International Contemporary Art Exhibition in Manila, Philippines from 25 October to 25 November 2011 with the possibility of traveling the exhibition to select countries in 2012 and 2013. Nothing to Declare will host a roster of international and local artists.  We will also organize teachers’ training workshops, artist talks and group discussions as satellite activities to the program.

In brief, Nothing to Declare revolves around the following interrelated themes:
1.  Shifting geographies emerging from diasporas, migrations, overseas work 
2.  Shifting identities arising from movement, mobility, displacement, exchange; implying a sense of rooted-ness and slippage, identification and estrangement, familiarity and alienation, entitlement and distance 
3. Shifting spaces, connoting not just physical relocation, but mental and spiritual dis/position, as well as dislocations, gaps and silences that take place in immediate, virtual and hyper-realities 
4.  Shifting positions, implying an appreciation of difference and a willingness to dialogue, work together, listen and engage.
5.  Shifting power relations, connoting multiple flows and streams of choices, constraints, control and conditions of creation, dissemination and reception 
6.  Shifting possibilities, connoting transformations and breaking grounds where marginality – of having nothing to declare – IS source of intervention and strength, of loss as well as triumphs

To participate in Nothing to Declare, please send us a proposal of, (preferably recent) artwork you would like to show OR a proposal for new work you will make and would like to exhibit.
Include medium resolution (75-100 dpi) photographs or drawings to illustrate your proposal including installation requirements, size of the artwork, medium, etc.
Email proposals to nothing2declare [arobas] gmail [point] com by the deadline on 30 August 2010. For video works, please limit works to only single channel, and since video projection on screens are limited to availability, please allow works that can be displayed on LCD and/or on screen
For photography, works should be printed on aluminum without frames or mount on foam. Selected artists will be invited to come to Manila.

For inquiries, please contact: Josephine Turalba, jturalba [arobas] yahoo [point] com

What is being exchanged?

* Ideas and projects dedicated to the (re-)activation, the inventive (and resourceful) handling of public space
* Experiences from sub-cultures, counter-cultures, from the social outbound(-cast) districts, the margins of society
* Objects and symbols, that enable and open up via exchange new outlooks concerning systems and networks
* And « radical moments » that take place in and between encounters; moments that have a certain magical impact on the involved peoples
* Questions that characterize the urban utopia

Two questions to consider in the proposal:
1. How does the « exchange » between the people within your project happen, what are the dynamics of exchange?
2. What does this « radical moment, » the moment that forged the exchange, look like?

Curator Competition – King’s Cross Central, London
Curator Competition – King’s Cross Central
Deadline: 21 June, 2010
King’s Cross Central Partnership has high aspirations for the quality of art at King’s Cross. Our aim is that the art will be of such quality that it creates King’s Cross Central as a destination for arts. We will support art that responds to the site as it evolves over time and seek to encourage innovative and creative approaches. The programme will contribute to the wider regeneration of the area, building on the tradition of arts in King’s Cross and involving those in the wider community.
We have made some progress, hosting the work of others and developing programmes of our own. With the support of an Advisory Panel, we wish to develop a more comprehensive approach to arts at King’s Cross Central through the appointment of a curator or curatorial organisation to the site for consecutive periods of three years.
We invite expressions of interest for the role of curator 2010 to 2012. The deadline for submissions is 21st June 2010. Further information can be found in the brief, which is available for download here http://www.kingscrosscentral.com/curatorcompetition
About King’S Cross development
The development at King’s Cross will offer new theatres, independent cinemas, exhibition spaces, new community facilities and annual festivals to complement the already established and thriving creative scene (the adjacent Kings Place is home to two orchestras and music auditoria).
In 2011, University of the Arts, London – which includes Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design – will occupy The Granary and other buildings within the Eastern Goods Yard. Up to 4,500 students and staff will populate the space.
The area will provide up to 50 arts and music venues, with permanent visitor attractions planned within existing refurbished heritage buildings like the Eureka! Children’s Museum and The House of Illustration.
With a commitment to supporting high quality art, permanent and temporary projects will be commissioned across the site. We are promoting initiatives such as ‘Artist in Residence’ and collaborating with local cultural and arts organisations. The new spaces and squares will host outdoor concerts, performance theatre, dance, sculpture and interactive art.

Billboard Competition Art Moves Festival, Poland
Billboard Competition –  « Together or apart? »
Deadline: 10 August, 2010
We would like to invite you to take part in a billboard art competition. The invitation is addressed to all the interested artists and students. There is no entry fee.
The best 10 artworks selected by an international jury panel will be printed and exhibited in the urban space of the city of Torun, Poland in September/October 2010. The author of the winning entry will receive the Main Award in the amount of PLN 7000 (approx. EURO 1750, $ 2200).
The competition accompanies 3rd Festival of Art on Billboards Art Moves.
The artwork is supposed to be a creative response to this year’s competition theme: « Together or apart? »
This slogan can serve as a kind of a metaphor of the processes taking place in the contemporary world. Both individuals and the whole societies are faced with such a choice. Do they want to live together, contribute, collaborate and, as a result create shared value, or do they want to lead a separate, individual life of their own? Is it better to be single or in a stable relationship? Is being a member of a larger organization, like the European Union better than staying apart? Is it better to feel a part of your nation or rather an individual citizen? The possible interpretations are multiple. So, together or apart?
The entries can be sent by electronic mail until 10 August, 2010 to the following address: artmoves [arobas] tlen [point] pl.

Thanatopolis, an alternative memorial park/space in the advanced conceptual phase of its development, is looking for works that harmonize with the long-term goal of the project, which is to re-imagine our cultural and personal relationship to death, memory and memorialization – and to engage the above creative fields to bring about a new, profoundly sacred and evocative landscape/sound-space.

Selected projects will be presented at the Thanatopolis Exhibition on October 2, 2010.

GALERIJA GALŽENICA
2011 – Velika Gorica/Slovenia

It seems that the traditional division between fine and applied arts is still significant. This flexible yet constant dividing line is consistently being drawn even today, when most of the methods we have used so far to make this division are not considered efficient anymore. For example, recognizing different modelling procedures is not sufficient to determine the artistic status of a certain object or product. This also applies to the nature of social activism organized around a well-shaped aesthetic object or event, since political struggle more and more frequently takes place in the cultural sphere. Furthermore, it has never been more difficult to label an object or a phenomenon as art based only on its intertextuality, since the institution of art has become ever more complex, progressively implying a greater number of cultural practices.
Following the change in production, the difference between functional and non-functional objects is not as simple as it was at the turn of the 20th century, when, in the wake of the first industrial revolution, an organized struggle was started by artists who actively wanted to participate in making social decisions. Moreover, it has not just become more difficult to determine the line between design and fine arts, but it also seems – as Hal Foster claims in his book „Design and Crime“ – that in the recent, so-called post-industrial revolution, almost everything is done according to design principles. Foster claims that this omnipresence of design in contemporary society is the symbol of the triumph of industrial culture which has profited out of the emancipatory projects of avant-garde art.
Foster refers to two pioneers of Viennese modernism, Adolf Loos and Karl Kraus, in order to emphasize the necessary distinction between design and art. Paraphrasing Kraus, he claims that a designer transforms art (an urn) into a functional object (chamber pot), while functional modernists transform functional object (chamber pot) into art (urn). Both cases represent totalitarian practices that do not allow for any critical thinking. Foster therefore concludes that, although autonomous art is a modernist illusion, we still need the „freedom space” which is to be found somewhere between the two extremes.
Following this line of thought, we invite you to participate with your works, proposals and curatorial concepts in the process of creating Gallery Galženica’s program for 2011. Please send your on-line applications to galzenica [arobas] gmail [point] com by July 1st, 2010.
Based on the received proposals the curators of the gallery (Klaudio Štefančić, Sanja Horvatinčić and Nina Pisk) will make the program for 2011 which will be announced by July 15th, 2010.

Rencontres Internationales qui se dérouleront à Paris au Centre Pompidou
du 25 novembre au 4 décembre 2010, et à Madrid et Berlin en 2011.

Ces trois événements proposeront une programmation internationale
inédite -nouveau cinéma, vidéo contemporaine et multimédia,
réunissant des oeuvres d’artistes et de réalisateurs reconnus sur la
scène internationale aux côtés de jeunes artistes et de réalisateurs
présentés pour la première fois.
TOUT INDIVIDU OU ORGANISME PEUT EFFECTUER UNE OU PLUSIEURS
PROPOSITIONS D’OEUVRE. L’APPEL A PROPOSITION EST OUVERT POUR LES CYCLES
FILM, VIDEO ET MULTIMEDIA, sans restriction de genre et de durée. Les
propositions sont gratuites, sans limitation de provenance

PARIS/BERLIN/MADRID
Initialement entre Paris et Berlin, les Rencontres Internationales se
sont ouvertes en 2007 à une troisième ville de présentation, Madrid. La
manifestation constitue une plate-forme unique en Europe où les artistes
peuvent se rencontrer, échanger avec un large public, initier de
nouveaux projets, nouer des contacts avec les professionnels.

Les lieux de présentation dans les trois villes sont notamment le Centre Pompidou
à Paris, la Haus der Kulturen der Welt à Berlin, le Musée National Reina
Sofia et la Cinémathèque Espagnole à Madrid.

Cet événement non commercial sans compétition est soutenu par des
institutions françaises, allemandes, espagnoles et internationales.

Plus qu’une simple présentation d’oeuvres, les Rencontres Internationales
proposent un véritable forum interculturel, en présence de nombreux
invités venus du monde entier, artistes et réalisateurs, responsables
d’institutions et de structures émergentes, pour témoigner de leur
expérience, de leur réflexion et de contextes artistiques et culturels
connaissant souvent de profondes mutations.

Les Rencontres Internationales rendent compte des spécificités et des
convergences des pratiques artistiques entre nouveau cinéma et art
contemporain, explorent les formes artistiques émergentes et leurs
propos critiques, et permettent ce temps nécessaire où les points de vue
se croisent et s’échangent.

Les Rencontres Internationales ont pour vocation de faire découvrir
ces oeuvres à un large public, de créer des circulations entre
différentes pratiques artistiques et entre différents publics, de
susciter des échanges entre artistes, réalisateurs et acteurs de la vie
artistique et culturelle.

La manifestation souhaite ainsi contribuer à une réflexion sur notre
culture contemporaine de l’image, au travers d’une programmation
exigeante ouverte à tous.

Modifications à la Loi sur le droit d’auteur : du bon et du moins bon pour les artistes en arts visuels

Ottawa, mardi, le 8 juin 2010 – Les artistes en arts visuels sont heureux des progrès constatés dans le projet de loi C-32 modifiant la Loi sur le droit d’auteur déposé hier devant le Parlement; ils craignent toutefois que la proposition d’élargir le traitement équitable à l’utilisation des œuvres à des fins éducatives ne leur coûte cher. Le législateur a également raté l’occasion de créer, dans le cadre de ce projet de loi, un droit de suite, comme l’ont déjà fait 56 autres pays.

Quelques recommandations de l’Association nationale des artistes en arts visuels (CARFAC) et de son partenaire québécois, le Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels du Québec (RAAV), ont été intégrées dans le projet de loi, notamment en ce qui a trait aux droits des photographes et des portraitistes, et à la ratification du Traité de l’Organisation mondiale de la propriété intellectuelle.

CARFAC et le RAAV sont également heureux de constater que la parodie et la satire ont été incluses parmi les exceptions. L’utilisation d’œuvres protégées par le droit d’auteur s’inscrit depuis longtemps dans le processus créatif de certains artistes; or, dans certaines situations, le marché n’a pas réussi à combler leurs besoins légitimes en matière d’accès.

Par ailleurs, le fait d’ajouter une exception concernant l’utilisation équitable d’œuvres à des fins éducatives pourrait compromettre des sources de revenu qui, bien que modestes, sont importantes pour les artistes en arts visuels. Compte tenu du manque de clarté quant à ce que l’on considère comme « équitable », les artistes risquent de devoir recourir aux tribunaux afin de déterminer en quoi consistent leurs droits, ce que bon nombre d’entre eux n’ont pas les moyens de faire.

« Dans le monde de l’éducation, tout le monde est rémunéré pour son travail ; pourquoi pas les créateurs ? demande Gérald Beaulieu, président du CARFAC. Cette loi est compliquée ; au cours des prochaines semaines, nous l’examinerons de plus près pour mieux saisir les conséquences qu’elle aura sur les artistes en arts visuels. »

Il est décevant que, dans le cadre du projet de loi C-32, on ait raté l’occasion de mettre en place un droit de suite – cet outil important auquel on a recours partout dans le monde pour que les artistes en arts visuels puissent, eux aussi, jouir de l’accroissement de la valeur des œuvres qu’ils créent. Grâce au droit de suite, les artistes recevraient un pourcentage du prix de revente de leurs œuvres. Le gouvernement australien a récemment adopté un droit de suite, après que le tableau Warlugulong (1977), que l’artiste Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri avait vendue 1 200 dollars trente ans plus tôt, ait atteint 2,4 millions de dollars en 2007. Si le Canada adoptait le droit de suite, les artistes pourraient bénéficier des accords de réciprocité conclus avec d’autres pays où ce droit existe déjà. À l’heure actuelle, les artistes autochtones, et particulièrement les artistes seniors, voient les profits réalisés sur la vente de leurs œuvres dans le marché secondaire leur passer sous le nez.

Même si le débat sur le droit d’auteur a surtout porté sur la lutte que se livrent de puissantes sociétés détentrices de droits d’auteur et les utilisateurs, le droit d’auteur a d’abord été conçu pour encourager la créativité en assurant aux artistes une source de revenu. C’est pourquoi CARFAC et le RAAV incitent leurs membres à ne pas céder leurs droits à des diffuseurs ou à des entreprises.

« Le droit d’auteur représente un élément important de la lutte incessante que nous menons pour aider les artistes à gagner leur vie, a déclaré Lise Létourneau, présidente du RAAV. CARFAC et le RAAV continueront de lutter pour améliorer les droits des artistes jusqu’à ce que ceux-ci soient traités équitablement. »
