SAISON DES EXPOSITIONS DE 2012

Dans le cadre du Programme d’art public, la Ville d’Ottawa administre deux galeries professionnelles : la Galerie Karsh-Masson et la Galerie d’art de l’hôtel de ville. Des œuvres d’art contemporaines, dans tous les styles et toutes les formes, y sont exposées dans le but de promouvoir les arts visuels à Ottawa.

Chaque année, un jury composé d’artistes professionnels et de spécialistes de la région passe en revue et choisit les expositions. Tous les efforts sont déployés pour que les membres du jury soient représentatifs de la gamme de soumissions reçues chaque année.

Le jury évalue les candidatures selon les critères suivants : mérite artistique, professionnalisme et cohérence des œuvres présentées dans le cadre de l’exposition; qualité de la proposition écrite; pertinence en regard du mandat des galeries; et à-propos de l’exposition compte tenu de la nature publique des galeries. Les candidatures reçues sont automatiquement prises en compte pour les deux galeries. Une seule proposition d’exposition par requérant sera évaluée par le jury.

• Artistes sourds ou atteints d’un handicap, autochtones, francophones et/ou provenant d’autres cultures;

• Citoyens canadiens ou résidents permanents.

Appel de dossiers  /  L’inconscient de l’œil par le sténopé numérique
APPEL AUX ARTISTES DE TOUT LE PAYS QUI SE SERVENT DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE
DANS LEUR PROCESSUS CRÉATIF EN ART ACTUEL.
Double défi:
1- Montrer l’invisible en se servant de la photographie
2- Utiliser un processus ancien, le sténopé, adapté à la technologie
moderne, un appareil numérique à objectif interchangeable. (Il n’y a
qu’à enlever l’objectif et le remplacer par un carton noir ou le
bouchon, percé d’un petit trou. Le temps -de pose- fera le reste!)
Laissez entrer un peu de vie dans l’image par le sténopé. Quand la
profondeur de champ est augmentée par la longueur de temps
d’exposition, la magie peut mieux opérer. Seule la photographie peut
révéler l’inconscient de l’œil. Vous prenez une photo et puis, c’est
la photo qui vous prend. Cette valeur ajoutée que Barthes nommait
punctum, c’est en négligeant un instant la raison qu’elle peut surgir.
Le hasard s’approche quand le contrôle nous échappe…
André Paquin, commissaire de l’exposition qui sera présentée au Centre
d’artistes Voix Visuelle en septembre 2011.
www.voixvisuelle.ca
Date de tombée: Le mercredi 1er juin 2011
Toute présentation de dossier doit être uniquement proposée sur disque
CD ou DVD.  Inclure une enveloppe de retour pré-affranchie pour qu’on
vous retourne votre disque.
N’envoyez aucun document sur papier.
Les demandes doivent inclure :
-Curriculum vitae (maximum 3 pages)
-Un texte de démarche artistique et/ou votre intention de projet (150 mots)
-Liste détaillée de la documentation visuelle (numéros, titres et annotations)

New! Artist Residency At MAWA
Two deadlines: April 29, 2011 (for residencies in 2011) and October 28, 2011 (for residencies in 2012) MAWA is offering our urban, loft-style apartment to women visual artists for residencies of 2-4 weeks in duration. Applicants can use this space and time for research, reflection, networking and/or production. We will provide free accommodation and a $300 honorarium.
The MAWA apartment is fully furnished and includes a kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a double bed, a double futon/couch, and a designated parking space. All linens and cooking utensils are provided. The apartment is located on the second floor of 611 Main Street in downtown Winnipeg. Sadly, it is a walk-up and is not wheelchair accessible. info [arobas] mawa [point] ca
MAWA’s apartment is a clean space that is not conducive for painting and many forms of sculpture. However, we will work with you and other Winnipeg art centres to help you gain access to the facilities and resources you need. These could include a rough studio, printmaking, video and darkroom facilities, or introductions to likeminded artists and curators.
While at MAWA, we ask that you present your work to our members in a form of your choice (screening, talk, performance, showcase of work-in-progress, etc.). Artists at all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply. Equal consideration will be given to emerging and established artists. Rural Manitoba artists are especially encouraged. Imagine an urban retreat!
Applications must be received by April 29 and October 28 at 4 pm, and should include:
-a cover letter saying why you would like time in the MAWA apartment (goals, rationale)
-a detailed description of what you will need while you are here (access to other facilities or equipment requested)
-first choice of preferred dates; second choice of preferred dates (including start and end dates)
-an artist’s c.v.
-up to 20 images on CD or two videos on DVD
-a stamped, self-addressed envelope for the return of your materials
In conceiving of this residency program, MAWA hopes to increase dialogue between our geographical community-Winnipeg-and the art world beyond; to create networking opportunities for women artists; and to provide an oasis in which women artists can do whatever they need to do in order to move their practices forward.
Please send applications to:
Residency Program,
MAWA, 611 Main St.,
Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 1E1.

VISUALEYEZ Canada’s Annual Performance Art Festival

The twelfth annual Visualeyez festival of performance art is happens from 13 -18 September 2011 in the downtown core of Edmonton, Alberta, exploring on the curatorial theme of worship.

Visualeyez takes place over a period of six days and it is required that all invited artists are able to attend for the entire length of the festival. Artists experience the work of other artists; engage in discussion groups, meals and other activities that enhance the work of individual artists and the performance art community within Canada and beyond. Please visit http://www.visualeyez.org for the past festival.

Curator and Founder of Visualeyez, Todd Janes states, “Visualeyez 2011 takes a rather different focus, and I am curious how artists are engaging in discourses surrounding worshipping; or executing issues of devotion, contemplation and adoration as a key element in their practices and performances. I am not just curious about spiritual but also commoditization and extremes like obsessions”.

Proposals should include: a CV; artist statement; a detailed description of the work you wish to present, or explore; and support material that can include slides, video, print or digital documentation of your work, catalogues, and press.

The deadline for submission is Friday, 20 May 2011.
If you would like your materials returned to you, please also include sufficient postage or courier materials. Artists shall be contacted by mid-June 2011 regarding the status of their proposals.

Proposals by post to:
Visualeyez 2011

1. Open Spaces Gallery Call 4 Submissions from Wednesday March 2nd 2011.  Wednesday March 2nd was the first day for the opening of the Open Spaces Gallery. The Open Spaces Gallery is a progressive project that rents an hour from the parking meter outside of OCAD at 100 McCaul Street. The concept is that a space of available land is rented by Open Spaces Gallery to make visible the celebration and practice of First Nation culture by First Nation people  or artists. As an open space, the public is invited to learn about First Nation culture from the performances on Wednesdays. I am wearing a Call 4 Submissions poncho because there is space available for interested First Nation individuals to share experiences living in contemporary society. This project will add visibilty to First Nation culture. To learn more about the call 4 submissions please email;  JoelLibin [arobas] Hotmail [point] com or visit    http://openspacesgallery.blogspot.com to follow the documentation of this project.

2.  Iroquois Confederacy Flag from Wednesday March 9th 2011.  Wednesday March 9th was the second day for the opening of the Open Spaces Gallery by again buying an hour from the parking meter outside of OCAD at 100 McCaul Street. As a measure of identifying the Open Spaces Gallery as a safe territory for the expression of First Nation culture, the plan for the day was to design a territorial flag. Also, as a measure of creativity, my friend Morena and I represented a broken baby stroller as an Iroquois Confederacy Flag which marks the 6 nations of the Ontario and New York State area. Also, the transformation of a Western conceptual device (babystroller) into a representation of a First Nation territory parallels the project’s role in transforming an identifiable parking space into an expression of First Nation culture. I am excited for this Wednesday March 16th as a group of 5 OCAD students and faculty will celebrate the traditional making of craft through a cultural performance of a pow-wow. Learn more about the Open Spaces Gallery by visiting us infront of OCAD at 100 McCaul Street or follow the documentation of Wednesday March 16th at http://openspacesgallery.blogspot.com
3. Wednesday March 16, 2011. Third day of the Open Spaces Gallery being opened includes a guest Ojibway artist and educator named Bonnie. Bonnie is helping Morena and Joel add some much needed beadwork to the territorial flag. With a larger group practicing First Nation culture, we seem to be getting less interruptions from vehicles wishing to take away from the Open Spaces Gallery. Today was a milestone for the Open Spaces Gallery as the first guest artist came to share in an expression of First Nation culture. I hope that we will continue to decorate the territorial marker and I am imagining that passerbys will start to take part in its decoration.
4. On Wednesday April 6 2011 Open Spaces Gallery used the rented parking space to include 3 paintings, 2 sculptures and 2 encaustic works. This exhibit was associated with a planned OCAD Student show at the gallery. Though I am really enjoying decorating the territorial marker, I am exploring using the Open Spaces Gallery for other forms of visual art works. I have now received three submissions and future exhibitions may include; sculpture, paintings and performance. Detailed documentations of Wednesday art openings can be followed at the blog; http://openspacesgallery.blogspot.com

5. This Wednesday April 13 2011 the Open Spaces Gallery will welcome Janus, a local sculptor from Markham. Janus is very interested in using small and lifesize sculptures to explore the Open Spaces concept of land reclamation; to transform rented parking space into a artistic venue. Janus has created a public performance and song to celebrate an understanding with First Nation culture and land marginalization. I am very excited to welcome a practicing artist to the Open Spaces Gallery. Interest in viewing the sculpture and performance has been shown by Structure and Form students from OCAD and I look forward to creating a dialogue between Janus and emerging young artists from OCAD, should be interesting.
To learn more about Janus’ sculpture, masks, projects and art practice, visit; www.janusnomad.com
Please feel free to wander by 100 McCaul on Wednesdays, 1230-130pm and take part in adding your own design to the Open Spaces Gallery territorial marker. Help with beading or bring your own artistic flare. Further documentation of the project and information about the Call for Submissions can be found at:  http://openspacesgallery.blogspot.com

competition to remotely influence the behavior of a candle. Matches are

agreed-upon time, signaling the beginning of the game. A match lasts for one
hour, or until the game candle is extinguished, whichever comes first.
In the event of a tie at the end of one hour, the match goes into sudden
death. The object of the game is to have the wax from the candle drip onto
the opposing team’s side of the game board. This objective is to be
accomplished by remote telekinetic influence.
The winning team will be awarded the World Telekinesis Competition trophy,
which they will get to keep until next year’s competition.

Pixxelpoint 2011 – 12th International New Media Art Festival
Let’s Get Ready – PIXXELPOINT 2011
Deadline: June 10th 2011
Pixxelpoint is one of the most successful and renowned festivals of new media art in Slovenia and also abroad. Its purpose is firstly, to bring the information technology and new media art closer to the general public, and secondly, to raise awareness about a different potential to use the medium of connection.
Artists and art collectives from all countries working with new media and digital technologies that include work in traditional media as long as it may fit conceptually in the exhibition theme are invited to submit proposals of existing or new projects.
The title of this year’s Pixxelpoint is: Let’s Get Ready.
Curatorial team: Gülsen Bal and BridA / Jurij Pavlica, Sendi Mango, Tom Kerševan
Objective
Applicants can choose to submit works in the following categories:
· New media installation (new media work that is exhibited in spatial arrangements)
· Computer based art (project that doesn’t require physical space, for example, programs, computer games, internet art, etc.)
· Digital print
· Video
· Other (work in traditional media – ie drawing, painting, sculpture and so on – that may fit thematically or conceptually in the exhibition)
All submitted works must match to given exhibition theme Let’s Get Ready:
The title for the 12th edition of Pixxelpoint 2011 is appropriately enigmatic: LETS GET READY…, merely defines a space of engagement driven forward by a generative force: “to begin again from the beginning” for those who seek what formulates new media art in its fluent transition between the various manifestations, which can take on new meanings in multiple contextual re-configurations no matter what of their materiality or mediality. Especially when considering the articulations from the fundamental/historical register to what this could foster at the intersection of new media art’s “mission, its destiny.”
Beyond what has been stated, it can also be said that one of the characteristics of new media art is potentially generate a critical moments; an instance of that might open up the possibility of thinking the ‘new.’
However, in describing the relation to the new media driven art forms, there is likewise a kernel approach as “new technologies are nothing other than new means to an end.” Then, what does this interpretation cultivate? And, how could this space of engagement be defined within these statement, which at first appear contradictory yet are co-existing and non-separable?
The repercussions of what characterize the generative moment of reconnecting processually with what is produced, with the conditions of emergence of which reveals its transformative capacities as a space for possibilities. This highlights the political and cultural context of contemporary art production in the context of the emergence of micropolitical forces to generate.
This seeks to maintain relational entities in tracing a line through different planes of production and this is the very core of the direction of the 12th edition of Pixxelpoint 2011, linked with the eventualities of implications for the very idea of critical engagement as to create different forms of articulation in relation to new media art.
Submission Guidelines
All applicants should fill the entry form and send it online along with the proposal to pixxelpoint2011 [arobas] gmail [point] com.
Every single work must be accompanied by entry form. Works submitted without this entry form will not be valid.

inform about Nordic performance art and to function as a resource base
and communication channel for the Nordic visual performance art
community. The generation of texts about different topics and to
continuously update a database about Nordic artists, organizations,
events and opportunities are the main goals of the project.

Nordic Tantrum aims to have rotating editors every second year. For
the past two years Agnes Nedregård has been in charge of the project
and I am excited to announce that from April 1st I take over Nordic
Tantrum as the new editor.

Benedicte Clementsen will be the new co – editor of the project, and
together we are very excited, full of energy and motivation! And since
this is a moment of changes for Nordic Tantrum, this is also the
moment for you to come up with suggestions, ideas and comments about
the website and the project in general. So, feel welcome to write us!!

We hope to keep up the expectations and we are looking forward for
eventual collaborations with you!

Best wishes,


Franzisca Siegrist
