29e SYMPOSIUM
international d’art contemporain
de BAIE-SAINT-PAUL
29 juillet – 28 août 2011
DIRECTION GÉNÉRALE COMMISSAIRE INVITÉ
Jacques St-Gelais Tremblay Stefan St-Laurent
Le conte est l’un des fils conducteurs de l’histoire de l’humanité. Traditionnellement transmis au moyen de mots, d’images et de sons et, bien que souvent perçu comme une forme de divertissement ou d’éducation, le conte contribue aussi à la préservation de nombreuses cultures à travers le monde, malgré les avancées fulgurantes de la mondialisation et de l’assimilation. Aujourd’hui, les artistes visuels racontent des récits et des narrations en utilisant une panoplie de techniques variées. Ces médiums sont infinis : dessin, peinture, impression, publication, performance, film, vidéo, nouveaux médias et, de plus en plus, les arts interdisciplinaires et pluridisciplinaires. Cette édition du Symposium donnera lieu à une convergence d’artistes contemporains, de conteurs et de plus de 20 000 visiteurs. Ensemble, ils affirmeront l’influence durable du conte sur de nombreuses générations d’artistes évoluant dans les milieux des arts visuels, des arts médiatiques et de la performance au Canada et à l’étranger.
Dans la région de Charlevoix, au sein des communautés autochtones et francophones, le conte s’est épanoui et sa pratique est encore très répandue aujourd’hui. Il en résulte un thème qui est à la fois spécifique au plan régional et significatif au plan international. La tradition du conte, au Québec et au sein des cultures autochtones du continent, a influé sur toutes les formes d’arts visuels au Canada et elle a largement marqué l’art performatif et l’art interdisciplinaire. Le conte est une tradition universelle et attrayant : il rassemble des personnes venues entendre, voir et ressentir, dans un contexte communautaire, des récits anciens, inédits ou fantaisistes, des mythes ou des leçons de morale. Les conteurs, voilà certes un thème évocateur pour un symposium d’art contemporain qui s’efforce constamment d’instaurer une interaction exceptionnelle entre l’artiste et le visiteur.
Qu’ils soient émergents, à mi-carrière ou bien établis, les douze artistes canadiens et étrangers invités à cette édition du Symposium partageront tous un intérêt marqué pour le concept du conte à travers les arts visuels et la performance artistique. Les artistes qui s’expriment dans une autre langue seront invités à travailler avec des interprètes professionnels sur place afin de réaliser leurs premières oeuvres en français. Ainsi, ils favoriseront l’échange interculturel et leurs oeuvres d’art viendront s’ajouter à la collection du Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul. Les artistes du Symposium seront encouragés à collaborer avec les conteurs et les artistes régionaux afin d’élaborer et de réaliser de nouvelles oeuvres d’art. Il en résultera un événement international emblématique de la région.
Stefan St-Laurent, commissaire

The Transmission Commission Collective (TCC) seeks submissions for Rare & Raw, a curated exhibition exploring queer representation, historical visual culture and contemporary art production. The TCC invites proposals that investigate notions of queer knowledge, history and intergenerational pedagogy.

How has history shaped current discourse of queer representation and visual culture?
What is the role of accessibility in queer history and contemporary art practices?
How have notions of the archive informed contemporary queer art?

The Transmission Commission Collective (TCC) is accepting proposals for film and video; painting and drawing; photography; installation; multi-media.

* For film, video and/or installation DVD’s must be NTSC formatted
* Statement/Proposal, no more than 500 words
* C.V, no more than 3 pages

Fantasia Film Festival, Montreal, CANADA
MARCH 15, 2011 – Earlybird Deadline

MISSION & OBJECTIVE 
A legendary 3-week blow-out of worldwide fantastic cinema taking place each July in the heart of Montreal, now deep in planning its 15th edition. 

We’re currently on the lookout for features and shorts to showcase at this summer’s event. What exactly are we looking for? While predominantly a fantasy/action/horror festival, Fantasia has always embraced films whose sheer individuality puts them in a genre of their own. If you’re not sure whether your film is right for us, consider that we’ve showcased everything from captivating dramas, eccentric comedies, provocative documentaries, mind-blowing experimental works, musicals, even atypical children’s films. In other words, set our minds’ eyes on fire and we’ll do everything possible to get your film seen. Feel free to browse our 2008 website for a better understanding of our programming tastes.

Any work produced in the past 18 months is eligible for both our official jury competition and our Public’s Prize. 

There is no entry fee for Quebec productions

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Since its inception in 1996, Fantasia has been an event hell-bent on showcasing the most exciting, innovative and individualistic examples of contemporary international genre cinema from every corner of the globe. 

It has become a hugely popular Montreal summer tradition for over 90 000 festival-goers to spend three weeks being amazed by sensational celluloid from Japan, Spain, South Korea, Italy, Hong Kong, Germany, Thailand, Denmark, France, Russia, India, New Zealand, Chile, Brazil, Australia, Holland, Scotland,Iran, Belgium, Sweden, Great Britain, Uruguay, the US and of course, Quebec and Canada.

Over the years, Fantasia has proven itself to be one of the largest and the most cutting edge festivals of its kind. Among our accomplishments, Fantasia is regularly cited as the place where the J-horror craze began in this part of the world – our North American Premiere of RINGU led directly to Dreamworks acquiring the film and producing its blockbuster remake, and Fantasia was also the first festival in North America to screen a film by Takashi Miike. Some other programming coups? Our World Premiere of PERFECT BLUE launched the career of Satoshi Kon and our Canadian premiere of PI marked the first time a film by Darren Aronofsky was shown in Canada. 

While we’re predominantly known as a Fantastic Film Festival, we have always devoted a large part of our programming to celebrating atypical indie films that defy conventions. From docs (past programming has included GHOSTS OF CITE SOLEIL, KING OF KONG, ZOO…) and comedies (MY SASSY GIRL, GHOST WORLD, ADRIFT IN TOKYO…) straight to unclassifiable experimental works (among the many examples, Fantasia did the World Premiere of REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA and Canadian Premieres of Werner Herzog’s WILD BLUE YONDER and Jan Svankmajer’s LUNACY). Our 2009 festival closed with the Canadian premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s INGLORIOUS BASTARDS a full 3 weeks before its release. 

We encourage filmmakers of all backgrounds, interests and obsessions to submit their work.

North by Northeast Film Festival, Toronto, CANADA
DECEMBER 10, 2010 – Earlybird Deadline
MISSION & OBJECTIVE 
The North by Northeast Film Festival, now in its 10th year, specializes in music-related films: features, documentaries, shorts, experimental films, even animation. Anything in which music is the star. 



ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
North by Northeast is celebrating its 17th year as Canada’s #1 festival for the best new music, film and interactive media. The Film Festival side, for music-related films, is in its 10th year. For seven days and nights every June, NXNE takes over Toronto to present the hottest bands, the most interesting films, and the newest ideas & technology, all within a few km of each other. NXNE is a feast for fans, a must-do for performers, and a vital gathering for international music & film industry execs.

Last year, 270,000 fans, artist, and industry professionals flooded Toronto’s famous club district for the festival.

Request for Expression of Interest – Call to Artists
Mount Seymour Seniors Residence
Mount Seymour Parkway, North Vancouver, BC Canada
Owner: Pacific Arbour Retirement Communities Inc.
Budget: $200,000
Deadline: November 5, 2010 @2:00 pm
This request for Expression of Interest is an open Call to
professional Canadian and American artists living in the Pacific West
Coast. Artists resident outside of the area will be permitted to compete
by invitation.
The Mount Seymour Seniors Residence is an exciting project being
developed by Pacific Arbour. The site is located at the 3200 Block Mount
Seymour Parkway in North Vancouver, across from the Parkgate Village
Center. This is the first project in the Eastern District to address the
needs of seniors who are active and competent but not without age
related mobility challenges that limit their ability to live healthy,
fulfilling lives.
The architecture, landscape design and surrounding natural
environment invite artistic expression. The chosen artist will be given
as much creative licence as possible to develop a theme that reflects
the neighbourhood context, history and folklore while respecting the
site limitations and use. The artist will conduct their own research of
the community in developing a proposal for an art piece that will have
significance to the community and do so with a theme that has layers of
meaning that will give the piece longevity. The rational for the piece
will be derived from its context both in place and time.

The scheme stands out because as well as mentoring and coaching, each individual has access to leading industry figures across the full breadth of specialism, from publicists, management and A&R people, to lawyers, media and other artists within the field. In addition, the club also commission, help produce and showcase the work of each of the Residents, by offering them free access to the club’s facilities as well as support from the club’s expert team of staff.  Facilities at The Hospital Club include state of the art music and television production studios, an art gallery and a cinema.
Previous Residents have gone on to great things within the creative industries including fashion designer and stylist, Nova Dando, who has worked with some of the world’s leading musicians including La Roux and The Gossip.  Fashion designer Dean Quinn came to the programme having previously won ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year’ at Central St Martin’s; he has since gone on to work as a designer for Versace.

Call for Video Art Entries – SanctionedArray
The Guggenheim Museum’s and YouTube’s video biennial, Play 
Deadline:  October 20th, 2010
SanctionedArray is an online database of video art conceived in response to the restrictions of artists’ submissions to The Guggenheim Museum’s and YouTube’s video biennial, Play (www.youtube.com/play). Artists’ submissions to Play are limited by OFAC sanctions (www.ustreas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/programs/) – citizens or residents of Belarus , Cote d’Ivoire , Congo , Cuba , Iran , Iraq , Lebanon , North Korea , Somalia , Sudan , Syria , Myanmar/Burma, and Zimbabwe are not eligible to submit their work. We maintain that the application of these OFAC sanctions to virtual transmissions of video art perpetuates the conditions that led to the imposition of these sanctions; and we invite those who wish to protest the continuity of such restrictions – artists of any origin, including those from the sanctioned countries – to submit their work to SanctionedArray.
We hope to showcase the most notable and varied video works from creators anywhere. Submission of virtual entries to SanctionedArray, follow online video formats proposed by YouTube and The Guggenheim, with the exception of item 1.d. under Eligibility (www.sites.google.com/site/ytplayterms/all). A large number of invited art professionals shall serve as jurors in SanctionedArray by rating the online entries in a process and open source code created and generously provided to us by apexart (http://www.apexart.org/). One hundred videos will be selected from the online entries to be showcased online. The selection criteria are not predetermined in the call for submissions, and will be calibrated by the jurors in the process of selection.
SanctionedArray’s selected video entries shall also be launched at the screening event on October 25th and 26th, 2010 at WHITE BOX in New York City. This event shall coincide with the Play biennial at The Guggenheim New York, extending representation of video entries considered not eligible by Origin, by YouTube and The Guggenheim, and « challenging a status quo, » as proposed by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, The Guggenheim Museum.
A roundtable on October 26, 2010 starting 7 PM, with esteemed artists, curators, and legal experts will provide an opportunity to discuss terms, conditions, and consequences of both Play and SanctionedArray.

HOPE
Le Festival Belluard Bollwerk International
et le Pour-cent culturel Migros
recherchent des projets artistiques
qui traitent de l’espoir.


Dans cette deuxième décennie du 21e siècle, la question de l’espoir semble occuper une place centrale sur la scène politique et culturelle. Bien qu’elle soit la plupart du temps une stratégie rhétorique pour rassembler les masses sur des questions écologiques, de globalisation ou encore de terreur politique, une approche contemporaine de l’espoir peut s’avérer utile dans la construction d’une perspective différente sur nos attitudes sociales et artistiques.

Aujourd’hui, l’espoir n’est plus la projection d’une sorte d’utopie éloignée ou d’un avenir lointain. Nous ne croyons plus aux grandes idéologies, depuis qu’il nous semble avoir été littéralement absorbés par les rêveries globalisantes du capitalisme. Plutôt que de rêver à une révolution sanglante, l’espoir se place aujourd’hui dans un présent éternel: dans chaque situation, chaque relation, chaque choix éthique.

En d’autres mots : l’espoir est une conception nouvelle de l’espace et des relations, c’est permettre au changement d’arriver, même petit, dans n’importe quelle direction. Un geste d’espoir est celui qui modifie la situation: entre toi et moi, entre moi et mon environnement, et en même temps nous change tous les deux.

Le Festival Belluard Bollwerk International et le Pour-cent culturel Migros recherchent des projets qui pourraient mettre l’espoir en mouvement, en forme d’installations expérimentales, en travail performatif, en pratiques stimulantes ou en invitations attrayantes pour la ville et ses habitants.

Espoir comme invention; comme mouvement; comme changement; comme chorégraphie; comme rêve de jour; comme potentiel; comme révolution; comme hospitalité; comme action; …

L’appel est ouvert aux artistes ainsi qu’aux spécialistes d’autres domaines, aux habitants de la ville de Fribourg et d’ailleurs, aux individus et aux groupes.

Les projets sélectionnés seront réalisés dans le cadre du Belluard Festival 2011.

Les projets peuvent avoir lieu sur une des scènes du festival, dans un autre site de Fribourg ou dans l’espace public.

Les projets seront sélectionnés par un jury constitué de praticiens issus des différents domaines des arts et d’experts d’autres champs.

Les projets sélectionnés seront ensuite développés durant une résidence à Fribourg, en collaboration avec des spécialistes issus de différents champs professionnels.

Règlement
• Chaque projet est présenté sur trois pages A4 (y compris plans, dessins, photos…) et comprend un budget et des indications personnelles (nom, adresse postale, e-mail et téléphone).
• Les dossiers peuvent être rédigés en anglais, allemand ou français (les dossiers en allemand et en français doivent comprendre un résumé en anglais de 1000 caractères).
•  Les dossiers sont envoyés au plus tard le 18 octobre 2010 (le cachet postal faisant foi) à Belluard Bollwerk International, Concours 2011, CP 214, 1701 Fribourg, Suisse ou par e-mail à info [arobas] belluard [point] ch avec «CONCOURS 2011 » comme sujet (00:00, heure suisse).
• Les résultats sont communiqués au plus tard à la mi-décembre 2010.
• Le jury se réserve le droit de ne pas commenter sa décision.
• Le matériel envoyé ne sera pas retourné.
• Chaque projet sélectionné reçoit un budget artistique minimum de CHF 2’500.-, plus un budget de production pour la réalisation du projet et sera présenté durant le Belluard Festival 2011.

Les participants doivent être disponibles pour
• Un mentoring à Fribourg en février 2011 avec un groupe de spécialistes (dates exactes à confirmer).
• Une période de production à Fribourg en juin 2011.La présentation du projet pendant le Belluard Festival 2011, du 21 juin au 4 juillet 2011 (dates exactes à confirmer).

Call for entries: VIDA 13.0
At a time when the notion of life is once again located in an uncertain domain, a wide range of artistic initiatives come together to illustrate and investigate this phenomenon; they examine the impact on the collective conscience and the way it is manifested in cultural, technological and social thought.
Over the last decade, in the same formal space, VIDA has been bringing together inter-disciplinary projects that respond to this situation. By means of formal strategies that defy the boundaries between existing practices, these projects offer new ways of reflecting on what we understand by life and artificial life.
Fundación Telefónica announces the VIDA 13.0 Art & Artificial Life International Competition, which for the last twelve years has awarded prizes for artistic projects using technological mediums offering innovative approaches to research into artificial life.
The projects may be based on systems which emulate, imitate or speculate on the notion of life through current research and technology. These systems may involve attributes of agency and autonomy which display specific behaviour, are dynamic, react to their surroundings and evolve, and which question the frontiers between what is alive and what is not, between synthetic and organic life.
As in previous years there are two categories to the competition:
FINISHED PROJECTS
In this category VIDA 13.0 will award prizes to artistic ALife projects developed after 2008. The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the projects selected by the jury: First Prize: 18,000 Euros, Second Prize: 14,000 Euros, and Third Prize: 8,000 Euros. In addition seven honourable mentions will be awarded.
ARTISTIC PRODUCTION INCENTIVES IN IBEROAMERICA, SPAIN AND PORTUGAL
In this category VIDA 13.0 helps to fund artistic ALife projects that have not yet been produced. This is aimed at citizens or residents of countries comprising Latin America, Spain and Portugal. The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the selected projects.
The winning projects will be subsequently exhibited at the VIDA Gallery,
http://www.fundacion.telefonica.com/arteytecnologia/galeriavida/. and may be presented in exhibitions related to art and new technologies organised by Fundación Telefónica or in which it takes part.
DATES
Period for submission of projects: from 19th July to 7th November 2010.
JURY
The works submitted will be examined by an international panel composed of José-Carlos Mariátegui (Peru), Mónica Bello Bugallo (Spain), Nell Tenhaaf (Canada) Rodrigo Alonso (Argentina), Simon Penny (USA/Australia), Zhang Ga (USA/China) and Francisco Serrano (General Director of Fundación Telefónica).
ENQUIRIES
Queries may be addressed to the FAQs section of the website, by e-mail to vida [arobas] telefonica [point] es or by calling (0034) 91 584 23 00.

Access Space Artist Residencies Spring 2011
Deadline: 22 October 2010

We have two 15 day artist residency periods at Access Space to take place from January to April 2011 and are inviting artists, composers, hackers, designers, engineers and creative technologists to apply.

Based in Sheffield city centre, Access Space is the UK’s longest running open access media lab. We use Open Source Software and recycled computers to develop creativity, community, skills and resourcefulness.
We’re a place for skill sharing, artistic endeavour, creative expression and collective knowledge.
The Access Space arts programme is designed to promote themes of Openness, including (but not limited to) Open Source, participation, collaboration, open networks and the public realm.
The ideal resident will be willing to explore one or more of these themes and we are particularly interested in socially engaged projects or projects which seek to utilise public space in the city.
However, we are always open to interesting ideas wherever they come from, including those exploring art’s edges and permeable boundaries.
Each residency period has a bursary of 1500 GBP.

Appel à participation
Art Fair(e)
Rencontres des arts numériques, électroniques et médiatiques
Date limite de dépôt : le 30 octobre 2010
Le projet
En 2009, Oudeis initiait ses Rencontres des arts numériques, électroniques et médiatiques sous le titre “Piégés par la liberté”.
Cette manifestation s’était déroulée durant une semaine en trois lieux différents : l’Espace Lucie Aubrac, le Château d’Assas et le P’tit Comptoir. Les vidéos, installations multimédia et l’Atelier d’Edition Ephémère conviaient le public à se confronter aux cadres de la liberté, vus par les artistes.
Oudeis lance à nouveau un appel à projet à l’attention d’artistes investis dans les arts numériques, qu’il s’agisse de vidéo, installation interactive, software art, netart, performance. La thématique donnée à cette occasion sera : “Art Fair(e)” et se déroulera sur une semaine, au début du mois de décembre 2010.
On peut tout imaginer du mot « foire », car la foire, c’est exactement cela, un grand fourre-tout, un amoncellement de marchandises, un bazar, du bruit, la foule, des animations, mais aussi la fête, les jeux et le relâchement. La foire, c’est populaire, c’est généreux et excessif, ça a le goût de l’exception et d’une brèche dans l’ordinaire. Dans les foires, on voit des démonstrations farfelues, des inventions et cela en fait un spectacle permanent. La foire est aussi l’occasion de montrer des savoir-faire, des pratiques méconnues voir extra-ordinaires. Le forain est l’acteur mais aussi son propre scénographe,  il est l’instigateur de la magie dans laquelle il enrobe son public. Peut-être un peu charlatan, il offre comme promesse le rêve et l’éphémère, le futile et l’inutile.  Une promesse qui ne dure que le temps d’une foire.
L’art a aussi ses grandes foires : la FIAC de Paris, Art Basel, Lille Art Fair, Art Brussels, etc.
L’art en foire ? Pour les non-initiés, l’idée peut paraître bien étrange. Autant les foires à l’artisanat sont populaires, autant on peut se demander ce que vient chercher le visiteur ? Achèterait-on une œuvre au détour d’un stand à barbe-à-papa ?
Si l’on accepte l’idée qu’une foire, c’est du divertissement et de la consommation, quelle peut être alors la fonction d’une foire de l ’art ?
Ces foires permettent aux galeries de présenter leurs artistes-poulains et de dessiner les tendances de l’industrie artistique comme les salons mondials de l’automobile permettent aux futurs acquéreurs d’entrevoir leur futur investissement. Les foires de l’art ne sont pas des expositions ordinaires. Si le public s’y précipite, c’est pour la concentration des œuvres présentées, si les acheteurs s’y précipitent c’est pour la concentration du marché.
Art Fair(e), c’est une foire de l’art qui s’émancipe de la valeur marchande pour laisser place à l’émerveillement des jeux, arcades et autres innovations ludiques, mais surtout pas innocentes. Tout un art du détournement d’une industrie pas comme les autres. C’est aussi la mise en perspective d’un “art de faire” comme le définissait Michel de Certeau, une “invention du quotidien” où tout geste est sujet à réappropriation, une résistance permanente face à la normalisation et concentration des flux sociétaux, culturels, économiques ou politiques. Art Fair(e) délocalise la compétence artistique en admettant aussi les procédures de détournement, retournement, contradiction, résistance, perturbation, comme extensions entières du champ de l’art.
Art Fair(e) sera aussi un temps pour dissiper le flou qui règne autour de l’art. Ce sera un anti-brouillard, un antido(c)te et aussi peut-être un acte de magie qui cherchera à perméabiliser une frontière entre le public et l’art en tant que système. Car si la foire peut être une fête qui vend du rêve, la foire peut aussi être brutale, sale, grossière, frontale. Art Fair(e) sera donc l’occasion de dissiper le grand rêve éveillé de l’art, d’expliquer ses systèmes, et enfin d’évoquer la condition de l’artiste, ce forain dont l’œuvre n’est qu’un élément de sa propre scénographie.
