APPEL: Folie/Culture

Appel de projet
D’un bord à l’autre de la baie vitrée
Québec, le 12 juin 2013 — Folie/Culture, organisme en art actuel qui suscite la réflexion sur des questions de santé mentale en empruntant des pistes de recherche inusitées, vous invite à soumettre vos projets, même les plus fous ! Vous êtes artiste professionnel ou un collectif d’artistes et vous avez des idées surprenantes, indomptables, extravagantes ? Ça pourrait nous séduire ! Par son mandat ouvert, Folie/Culture favorise la pluridisciplinarité, mais est également sensible à toutes les pratiques artistiques.
Nous vous demandons d’envoyer vos propositions avant le 6 septembre pour des projets de toutes disciplines sur la thématique D’un bord à l’autre de la baie vitrée.
Depuis Alice, la baie vitrée n’est plus un obstacle. Elle est une membrane de transition et de passage. Mais cette membrane contient en elle une dynamique étrange qui fait basculer le monde et la perception que nous en avons selon le côté où nous nous tenons. Dans les hôpitaux, les cages vitrées sont des espaces antivirus, des enfermements qui condamnent pourtant tous ceux qui s’y retrouvent. Dans les commerces, les baies vitrées séparent les esthètes contemplatifs des consommateurs compulsifs. Dans les maisons, elles protègent des orages et invitent cependant aux excursions dans le risque.
Dans un échange réel ou symbolique, la baie vitrée marque une scission du monde d’abord de manière dichotomique : inclusion / exclusion; intimité / extimité; fous / pas fous; personnel traitant / patients, etc. Mais selon les effets de la lumière, elle contient des images qui sont des reflets de chaque position en fonction de l’angle de perception, pulvérisant ainsi la séparation du monde selon une approche binaire. Ainsi, selon ma place d’un bord ou l’autre de la baie vitrée, quel est mon pouvoir, que devient mon autonomie, quand suis-je tout à coup aliéné et confiné à une fonction propre à chaque côté de la vitre ? En s’appuyant sur cet écoulement d’un monde rigide dans la fluidité de l’image de l’autre bord de la baie vitrée, peut-on ébranler la certitude et la fausse sécurité des enfermements ? Car dans la vraie vie, fous et non-fous cohabitent, les objets du commerce sont mythifiés dans les vitrines, mais traînent aussi dans les dépotoirs, artistes et non-artistes sur des sensibilités semblables dans leurs relations aux expériences esthétiques.
La sélection des projets se fera à l’automne 2013 et les propositions retenues seront présentées au courant de l’année 2014-2015. Notez que nous n’avons pas de locaux ni d’équipement de production ou de diffusion, ce qui nous oblige à entretenir d’étroites collaborations et à réinventer les lieux de diffusion.
Votre dossier doit contenir : un curriculum vitæ, une courte biographie, une description de votre projet, votre démarche artistique, un CD ou DVD d’œuvres récentes (maximum 10) ainsi qu’une enveloppe de retour préaffranchie.
Faites parvenir vos projets par la poste à l’adresse suivante : Comité de programmation Folie/Culture
281, rue De Saint-Vallier Est, Québec (Québec) G1K 3P5
ou

.dpi 28 (Automne 2013)
Dossier : Cultures genrées sur Internet
Coordonnatrice de dossier invitée : Jennifer Chan
Dans le cadre du dossier de son 28e numéro, .dpi examine Internet en tant que site hétérogène permettant la délibération et la mise au défi d’idéaux de genre. Sur Internet, les utilisateur-rice-s aux intérêts communs ont la possibilité de trouver des communautés basées sur la production de conversations portant à la fois sur le féminisme et le masculinisme. Tel que proposé par la théoricienne Donna Haraway et l’artiste et théoricienne Coco Fusco, les débuts de l’Internet auraient accéléré le potentiel d’émancipation de la performance de genre alors que les frontières entre les corps et les machines auraient permis à des subjectivités de genre, historiquement marginalisées et invisibles, d’être entendues. Inversement, le déséquilibre historique des structures de représentation soutenues par les musées et les institutions d’enseignement des arts se heurtent à ces intentions optimistes retrouvées sur Internet.

À la lumière d’une majorité de rédacteurs de Wikipédia qui s’identifie en tant qu’hommes et de la récurrence des critiques à propos de la disparité de la représentation des genres dans le monde du jeu vidéo et du net art, les écarts en ce qui à trait à la représentation des femmes et des personnes queer dans les pratiques artistiques dans le domaine des nouveaux médias et des arts technologiques demeurent inexpliqués et non résolus. D’un côté, la relation complexe et enchevêtrée entre le discours social et la représentation des genres en ligne doit être examinée, puisque des idéaux rigides de la masculinité et de la féminité persistent aujourd’hui au sein des communautés Web telles que celles retrouvées sur OKCupid et AskMen ainsi que dans les forums MPUA (rencontres d’artistes). D’un autre côté, les pratiques artistiques qui se réapproprient et/ou remettent en question ces définitions pourraient ouvrir la porte à de nouvelles manières de comprendre la construction sociale du genre.

Alors que les collectifs cyberféministes des années 90 cherchaient à infiltrer le monde du net.art dominé par les hommes, les pratiques féministes en réseau sont plurielles aujourd’hui. Les premier-ère-s artistes utilisateur-rice-s, telles que Netochka Nezvanova et la défunte LaTurbo Avedon, exploitaient l’anonymat des réseaux afin de projeter des personnages et des intérêts instables. De nos jours, la critique féministe en ligne reflète les réalités et aspirations genrées des utilisateur-rice-s, du remix subversif de la culture populaire jusqu’au commentaire latent des aggrégations d’images sur les tumblrs. Ailleurs sur le net, l’écriture honnête de blogueuses et d’auteures comme Karley Sciortino (Slutever) et Marie Calloway ont provoqué un tollé dans la blogosphère relativement à l’auto-représentation artistique « adéquate » de la sexualité féminine. Ultimément, les notions binaires du genre (masculinité et féminité), en tant que performance acculturée qui imite les idéaux socialisés, se manifestent dans la technologie et en sont également le produit. Pourtant, ces conventions sont déstabilisées à travers la délibération entre utilisateur-rice-s portant sur de telles représentations au sein de l’espace informel du Web (1). Quelles sortes de pratiques et de représentations sont actuellement importantes pour les femmes et les personnes queer? Quelles conversations reflètent les réalités de la distribution des genres actuellement en art et sur Internet? À quoi ressemblerait un environnement en ligne réellement post-genre? Quelles sortes d’usages du réseau feraient une brèche dans les idées existantes de la performance incarnée?

Liste non-exhaustive d’exemples de sujets recherchés :
– des analyses en ligne de la culture queer, transgenre et/ou hétérosexuelle;
– les pratiques artistiques en réseau et les conversations sur les féminismes et le « queerness »;
– des descriptions de conversations et de pratiques non-académiques, artistiques et féministes facilitées par Internet;
– la structure genrée d’Internet;
– des analyses féministes de la sous-culture d’Internet;
– des entretiens avec des personnes créatives travaillant sur ces thèmes;
– des déclarations et des manifestes;
– des historiques alternatifs de pratiques artistiques féministes en ligne.

Nous accueillons des textes et/ou projets complétés par toute personne intéressée, peu importe l’identité et l’orientation sexuelle.

Programmation régulière
Prochain appel : 1er novembre 2013
DIAGONALE invite les commissaires et les artistes en arts visuels à proposer leurs dossiers pour la programmation régulière du centre.
L’appel de dossier s’adresse à tous les artistes qu’ils soient des artistes « occasionnels » de la fibre ou des inconditionnels du domaine.
DIAGONALE regroupe des artistes du Québec et du Canada. Il a pour premier objectif la promotion et la diffusion du travail des artistes en arts visuels qui utilisent les techniques et/ou les procédés relevant du domaine des arts de la fibre. Le centre établit un dialogue avec les artistes de toutes les disciplines afin de favoriser le métissage au niveau des idées.
Art / Fibre
Il faut mieux parler de fibre et non de textile qui est une matière propre à être tissée. La fibre désigne quant à elle toute matière filamenteuse de forme allongée, d’origine naturelle ou non, qui entre dans la composition d’un corps ou d’un objet. Ses qualités tactiles ainsi que sa structure molle et flexible constituent des potentialités spécifiques indéniables.
Entrent dans la catégorie : la fibre, le fil et le tissu incluant les fibres végétales, animales, synthétiques et artificielles, les fils métalliques, les tubulures plastiques, les lanières de cuir, les languettes de bois, les bandelettes de papiers et la fourrure.
Les techniques et les procédés comprennent toutes les formes de construction et de traitement possible ; couture, tissage, haute lice, maillage, tressage, nouage, dentelle, broderie, laminage, façonnage, feutrage, taille direct, assemblage, gaufrage, feutrage, pliage, froissage, entrelacs, plissage, moulage, teinture, etc.
En prenant compte le concept fibre on doit ajouter les possibilités d’intégration de techniques et de matériaux propres à d’autres pratiques. La fibre peut être évoquée, représentée ou utilisée.  On retrouve de tout chez DIAGONALE : la peinture, la sculpture, l’installation, la vidéo, la performance …
Les artistes ou les projets d’exposition sont sélectionnés par un comité de membres et d’invités extérieurs. DIAGONALE encourage la réalisation d’activités novatrices qui élargissent la notion de concept fibre.
Le dossier doit comprendre :
•    Curriculum vitae
•    Démarche artistique
•    10 à 15 images (72 dpi) et une liste descriptive des images
•    Proposition de projet
•    Dossier de presse, s’il y a lieu
Les artistes intéressés doivent faire parvenir leur dossier PAR COURRIEL à : info [arobas] artdiagonale [point] orgwww.artdiagonale.org/appel-de-dossiers.html

Submissions

Latitude 53 Society of Artists is a not-for profit artist-run centre. Its purpose is to encourage contemporary artistic endeavors, to foster experimental cultural development, and to stimulate dialogue within the art community. A forum for dialogue about contemporary art practices is provided through exhibitions, criticism and projects.

Latitude 53 is willing to take risks in its programming and is fully prepared to support experimental ideas. Through the presentation of content-oriented art, our programs generate dialogue, political debate, and large-scale public awareness and discussion. Through proactive programming, which combines ongoing selections with a standard submission process that can remain flexible and responsive to current events in our community and elsewhere, we feel we can serve our community by providing more interesting, radical and provoking exhibitions.

Latitude 53 has a non-discriminatory exhibition policy and pays full artist fees in agreement with the CARFAC Schedule.

12 April–6 July 2014

Open Call for Proposals

Deadline: Monday 2 September 2013

www.opencall.eva.ie

Curated by Bassam El Baroni

eva International, Ireland’s biennial of contemporary art, is pleased to launch the international open call for proposals for the 2014 edition, curated by Bassam El Baroni. Applications are invited from individual artists or groups in any medium and can be for the presentation of existing works or production of new projects. The online application process is now open and closes at 5pm on Monday 2 September 2013. Please see opencall.eva.ie or contact info [arobas] eva [point] ie for further information.

Commenting on the curatorial approach for eva International 2014, El Baroni said:
“I would like the 36th eva International 2014 to be reflective of the many complex questions that the current heightened global political moment raises. Are we witnessing the continuing dominance of old political narratives? While these old narratives may be slowly showing signs of cracking, what are the obstacles facing the emergence of new narratives? Rather than being any kind of curatorial concept, this statement is intended solely as a hint at a direction that will evolve and nuance as the project develops. »
Founded in 1977, eva International is an artist-centred biennial of contemporary art that works with acclaimed guest curators to present exhibitions and events across the city of Limerick, Ireland. eva International 2014 is the 36th edition and will be part of Limerick City of Culture 2014 celebrations. Artists’ projects will be selected through an international open call for proposals and exhibitions will take place in both gallery and non-gallery spaces. A programme of talks, workshops and events will accompany the biennial and the open call for proposals includes opportunities for artists’ projects that engage with the city and its communities. 

eva International 2012 – After the Future, curated by Annie Fletcher, was highlighted as one of the top exhibitions in both Ireland and the UK during 2012. A catalogue with artists’ profiles, documentation, essays, interviews and transcripts from After the Future is available through www.eva.ie.

About Bassam El Baroni
Bassam El Baroni is a curator and art critic based in Alexandria, Egypt. In 2005 he co-founded the non-profit art space Alexandria Contemporary Arts Forum (ACAF), and was its Director until December 2012. In 2010, he was co-curator of Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain, and is currently a PhD researcher in the Curatorial/Knowledge program at Goldsmiths, University of London. El Baroni is currently co-curating the Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF, with Anne Szefer Karlsen and Eva González-Sancho), that will open in September 2013 in Vågan, Lofoten Islands, Norway.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
2013-2014 SHARON WOLFE ARTIST RESIDENCY

The Sharon Wolfe Artist In Residence program is intended to allow a disability-identified artist to undertake a project that advances their own artistic goals and practice, and which has the potential to benefit the wider community of artists with disabilities.

For the last 10 ten years, AAF has been presenting and promoting the work of exceptionally talented artists across the entire spectrum of disciplines. The Sharon Wolfe Artist In Residence program allows us to take this mandate a step further. Few artists have the luxury of devoting themselves completely to their practice; the vast majority must subsidize their work by juggling one or more paid positions. While funding poses a significant challenge for all artists, people with disabilities encounter a host of additional accessibility obstacles.

Named in honour of the organization’s founding Artistic Director Sharon Wolfe, the SWA Residency is intended to offer the resident artist an opportunity to devote themselves to a specific program of work, while simultaneously contributing to a larger dialogue and sense of engagement with the wider community of disability artists in Toronto.

The SWA Residency will provide the artist with a $5000 stipend, as well as access to a small studio space at the prestigious 401 Richmond building for up to two months between October 2013 and June 2014.

Eligibility:

The SWA Residency is intended to benefit artists who have completed basic education or training in their discipline and can demonstrate a history of professional practice and exposure.

The residency is open to Canadian citizens or landed immigrants. Artists need not be residents of Toronto, but must be prepared to spend at least one month of their residency in Toronto at their own expense. For artists outside of Toronto, Abilities Arts Festival would provide all possible assistance in locating appropriate, accessible accommodations in the city.

Applications must include:

  • A professional CV;
  • A 2-3 page (max) description of the intended project, indicating the connection to the artists work and potential benefit to the larger community;
  • A schedule and timeline for the project;
  • A budget indicating how the funds would be spent (ie. subsistence; materials; equipment; accommodation; presentation).
  • Applicants are encouraged to include support materials documenting their work. 

 

Applications will be assessed on the basis of:

  • Artistic merit;
  • Relevance to the applicant’s professional advancement;
  • The viability of the proposed program and budget; and
  • Overall value to the field of disability arts and community at large.

 

Applications will be accepted between July 30 and August 30, 2013.

Completed applications can be sent by mail to:

Sharon Wolfe Artist in Residence
Abilities Arts Festival
Suite S-30, 401 Richmond Street West
Toronto M5V 3A8

U of Art Jackson Court Project

Realizing that constant cultural awareness and institutional identity is promoted through visually unique and supportive surroundings, this call for proposals is the first step in one attempt to create a more art-conscious environment on the River Campus.  Creativity and innovation are nurtured and promoted through every aspect of campus life at the University of Rochester. With a mission to “Learn, Discover, Heal, Create – and make the World Ever Better,” academic experiences at theU of R are on a very personal scale. We seek a public artwork that is conscious of its surroundings and environment and their histories. We want the sculpture to be in keeping with the artist’s point of view while still connecting to the university’s mission.

The north end of River Campus is a pedestrian and commuter gateway for the Rochester community. The selected work will be installed at the intersection of several heavily trafficked walkways adjacent Jackson Court. Depending on the scale of the selected work, it could potentially be seen at a distance from the stadium or even the trail along the Genesee River. Stronger proposals will consider the many vantage points of the site and engage the frequent users of the walkways. Artists’ responses may propose sculptural element(s), single/multiple pieces, and/or any other tangible and durable artistic interventions. Initial applications are due August 19th, 2013. A maximum of $60,000 will be awarded.

Deadline: July 15, 2013
Application fee: none
Salary: 27,854 GBP per annum

We are seeking to appoint a visual artist for a one-year studio-based residency in Fine Art, School of Arts and Cultures at Newcastle University. The residency will culminate in a solo show at Matt’s Gallery, London in 2014. During the residency the artist will be based full-time in the Fine Art studios in Newcastle University and will be expected to locate in or near Newcastle for the duration of the Residency. Work(s) developed during the residency will form the basis of an exhibition at Matt’s Gallery, London, following the ethos of the gallery that rests upon the presentation of work developed on site.

The post signals an exciting new collaboration between Matt’s Gallery and Fine Art at Newcastle University and the successful candidate will be selected by a panel representing both organisations including Director of Matt’s Gallery Robin Klassnik. We are entirely open about the kind of artist we want to appoint, though we anticipate appointing an artist with an exciting and dynamic visual art practice that lends itself to being developed in interesting ways through the opportunity to work with a leading UK gallery and art school.

Funding is available from the Bartlett Bequest to appoint one artist for an initial period of one year. Further details and informal enquiries concerning the position can be made to Andrew Burton, Professor of Fine Art: andrew [point] burton [arobas] ncl [point] ac [point] uk.

Start date: September 2013 (not negotiable)

Closing date for applications: 9am GMT Monday July 15, 2013. Interviews are planned for the first week in August and will take place in Newcastle.

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.

APPEL À COMMUNICATION: Colloque L’Acadie dans tous ses défis

«L’ACADIE DANS TOUS SES DÉFIS»
DÉBATS AUTOUR DE L’ACADIE EN DEVENIR
Journée d’étude « Arts et littérature » Appel à communication
Organisé du 11 au 14 août 2014 à Edmundston (N.-B.) dans le cadre du Congrès mondial acadien 2014, le colloque L’Acadie dans tous ses défis vise à privilégier une réflexion sur l’Acadie et son devenir, sur les Acadiennes et les Acadiens et les défis à relever dans un monde en constante mutation. Vingt ans après la tenue du premier Congrès mondial acadien, la diversité (notamment thématique) des pratiques artistiques en Acadie et la traversée des frontières des artistes acadiens ne sont pas perçues comme des menaces à l’intégrité de l’art acadien, mais comme des risques qu’il vaut la peine de prendre ou même des occasions à ne pas manquer.
La journée d’étude « Arts et littérature », qui se tiendra le 12 août 2014, s’intéressera à l’évolution récente des arts en Acadie, autant à leur dimension esthétique qu’à leur dimension institutionnelle. Cette réflexion touchera l’ensemble des disciplines artistiques – la littérature, le théâtre, la chanson et la musique, les arts visuels, le cinéma, les arts médiatiques et la danse. Elle vise à impliquer l’ensemble des régions participantes du Congrès mondial acadien 2014. Les chercheurs universitaires, les praticiens des disciplines artistiques, les étudiantes, les étudiants et le grand public sont invités à prendre part à cet important exercice d’échanges et de réflexion.
Les propositions s’intéressant aux aspects suivants seront privilégiées :
les nouvelles propositions identitaires des artistes acadiens ;
les innovations formelles des artistes acadiens ;
la diversité interne des disciplines artistiques (la diversité des inspirations et influences, la spécialisation en sous-disciplines ou sous-genres, etc.) ; l’interdisciplinarité des pratiques artistiques ou le dialogue entre les disciplines ;
le rapport à l’altérité dans la production littéraire et artistique actuelle en Acadie ;
la représentation du folklore et du mythe de l’origine : réinvestissement symbolique dans le contexte mondialisé ;
les comparaisons entre les productions artistiques acadiennes et d’ailleurs ;
les pratiques artistiques acadiennes dans le contexte de la francophonie canadienne ou de la francophonie internationale ;
le statut de l’artiste professionnel dans les petites cultures contemporaines ;
l’engagement de l’artiste dans la sphère publique ;
les enjeux actuels et les défis à venir des institutions et industries culturelles en Acadie ;
l’enseignement et la diffusion des arts et de la littérature en Acadie ;
les discours à contre-courant et la dimension critique des arts et de la littérature en Acadie.
Le comité organisateur invite les personnes intéressées à soumettre des propositions de communication, de séance ou de table ronde en relation avec les thèmes proposés avant le 30 septembre 2013. Les propositions hors-thèmes seront également considérées. La deuxième édition des Rencontres France- Acadie se déroulant dans le cadre du colloque L’Acadie dans tous ses défis, les personnes travaillant sur des thèmes interpellant à la fois l’Acadie et la France sont particulièrement invitées à soumettre une proposition de communication. Le comité encourage fortement la proposition de séances ou de tables rondes complètes de trois présentateurs avec animateur. Le comité se réserve toutefois le droit de restructurer les séances ou les tables rondes en fonction de la cohérence générale du colloque. Les propositions doivent comprendre un titre, un résumé de 250 mots ainsi qu’une brève notice biographique (affiliation professionnelle, coordonnées personnelles et principales réalisations).

Les propositions doivent être soumises par Internet à : http:// www.cma2014.com/fr/l-acadie-dans-tous-ses-defis
Le comité scientifique est composé des personnes suivantes :
Pénélope Cormier, professeure de langue et de littérature, Université de Moncton, campus d’Edmundston, responsable Nicole Boudreau, professeure de français, Université du Maine à Fort Kent
