PROJETS SPÉCIAUX 2011-2012

Depuis plus de dix ans, articule soutient les interventions publiques, projets d’art action, manoeuvres, nouvelles pratiques artistiques, conférences, ateliers, projections vidéos, etc. à travers le volet de programmation des projets spéciaux. Cette année, nous invitons les artistes et les personnes oeuvrant dans d’autres champs de recherche à réfléchir avec nous sur ce que représente aujourd’hui l’indisciplinarité. Comment définit-on, par exemple, les limites entre art et action communautaire ou militante, entre recherche esthétique, politique, scientifique ou philosophique? Comment ces limites sont-elles transgressées? Les projets peuvent avoir lieu à la galerie, sur le web ou hors site. Nous sommes également ouverts aux propositions de collaboration avec d’autres organismes. Enfin, pour répondre rapidement aux initiatives proposées, le comité se rencontrera régulièrement afin d’évaluer les dossiers reçus, et ce, tout au long de l’année.
Le soutien d’articule pour les projets spéciaux peut prendre plusieurs formes : appui promotionel et logistique, accès à l’équipement du centre, appui financier (pour un montant maximum de 500$).

Appel de dossier / Programmation 2012-2013 D’ARPRIM

Date de tombée : 1 décembre 2011

Les artistes professionnels et les commissaires en art actuel s’intéressant au champ élargi des pratiques liées à l’art imprimé sont invités à proposer un projet d’exposition ou d’événement pour la programmation 2012-2013 chez ARPRIM.

L’ubiquité de l’imprimé dans le quotidien offre matière à penser, produire et re-produire. Elle se traduit par une multitude de questionnements investis par la création contemporaine. En empruntant le langage de l’art imprimé, les artistes redéfinissent  jusqu’aux paramètres mêmes de l’art. La rencontre des nouvelles technologies avec des procédés rudimentaires ; la génération systématique de données ; la matérialisation de l’intangible ; l’investissement des espaces publics physiques et virtuels ; la copie comme mode opératoire du vivant ; l’utilisation des codes de l’imprimé pour déconstruire le réel et le reformuler dans un nouveau langage ne sont que quelques-unes des tendances actuelles en art imprimé.

Les propositions soumises devront démontrer l’inhérence du média imprimé dans la démarche de l’artiste, de son utilisation comme un véhicule, au-delà d’une simple finalité technique, permettant de communiquer des enjeux spécifiques. Le comité de programmation privilégiera les dossiers d’artistes faisant preuve d’audace dans leur conception des pratiques en art imprimé. Les expositions retenues seront présentées pour des périodes respectives de cinq semaines.

ARPRIM s’engage à couvrir les frais reliés à la salle d’exposition, aux communications et au vernissage.

Le dossier doit comprendre :
Aucun document imprimé ne doit être envoyé, svp mettre vos textes en format DOC ou PDF sur un CD ou dans un dossier ZIP pour les propositions par courriel
– une proposition de projet
– un texte de démarche  (max 250 mots)
– 15 images numériques format JPEG, 72 dpi.
– une liste descriptive du visuel
– un curriculum vitæ(max. 3 pages)
– un dossier de presse (facultatif)
– une enveloppe pré-affranchie (facultatif )

Envoyez vos dossier par la poste à:
Comité de programmation ARPRIM
372, Sainte-Catherine Ouest, #426
Montréal, Québec H3B 1A2

ou par courriel à: ccloutier [arobas] arprim [point] org (Objet du courriel: Dossier de proposition)

imagineNATIVE and the NFB Renew Digital Media Partnership with Call for Proposals for
Innovative Interactive Works

Toronto, November 16, 2011 – The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) have renewed their digital media partnership for a second year of collaboration, and are inviting Canadian Aboriginal artists to submit proposals for innovative interactive digital media projects. Proposals can be for works in any digital medium and genre, including interactive documentary, mobile and locative media, interactive animation, interactive photo essay, data visualization and physical installation.

De Nort, an online locative video, photo and auditory journey into life on a northern reserve by Winnipeg’s ITWE collective, was selected through last year’s call for proposals and is now in pre-production at the NFB’s Winnipeg production studio. It’s slated to launch at the 2012 imagineNATIVE Festival.

« We’re thrilled to be renewing our partnership with imagineNATIVE and deepening our connection with artists in the Aboriginal digital media community, » says Cindy Witten, Director General of the NFB English Program. « It’s a fantastic collaboration, bringing together imagineNATIVE’s curatorial smarts and commitment to the digital arts and our role as a creative laboratory working with talented artists to explore the creative application of technology to interactive storytelling. »

« As we continue to expand and develop the presentation of Indigenous media arts at imagineNATIVE, we’re pleased to partner once again with the NFB, » says Jason Ryle, Executive Director of imagineNATIVE. « Interest in last year’s project was incredibly high, and we all look forward to this year’s applications. This project is a fantastic opportunity to create an innovative work and continue our fruitful partnership with the NFB. »

One project will be selected jointly by imagineNATIVE and the NFB for production, with the NFB serving as creative and administrative producer and imagineNATIVE providing creative input at key stages throughout the production. The project will be presented at imagineNATIVE 2013. The chosen project must be realizable within a $30,000 to $50,000 budget range.

The submission deadline is January 9, 2012. All Canadian Aboriginal artists are eligible to submit their proposals. Full submission details can be found at nfb.ca/imaginenative/proposals.

imagineNATIVE has been active in the programming and commissioning of digital media work by Aboriginal artists since the early 2000s. The NFB is Canada’s leading producer of internationally acclaimed innovative interactive digital media works, and has been producing audiovisual works by First Nations, Metis and Inuit directors since the late 1960s. The NFB works with a range of artists to reflect Canadian perspectives through film, video and interactive digital media projects.

Industrial Art Wanted
There was a time when things were built to do one thing well and last for decades. While many of them have weathered years of history and neglect, others have been re-purposed to serve contemporary needs. Scrap steel and wood have been recycled to create unique decorative arts, decrepit architecture has been salvaged in parts or immortalized by pictorial artists and machine age items has been carefully restored to their original glory. These revivals narrate remarkable stories of unique pieces and the people who rediscover them as Industrial Art. 

Rideau River Antiques is seeking Industrial Art for a brand new location beside the Museum of Science and Technology. Industrial themes could include recycled vintage parts, restored machine age items, re-invented industrial designs or wall art with industrial design ethics. Objects should have a function, be reasonably clean and show a sound sense of design. Any form or medium will be considered. Gallery floor is 3200sq with no columns, wallspace is 5000 sqft, ceilings are 22′ high.

Please email a brief note about your work together with sample images (less than 500Kb each) to submissions [arobas] riverantiques [point] com.

The 2012 Subtle Technologies Festival Call for Submissions is now open!

  • Toronto, Canada
  • Festival dates: May 24-27, 2012
  • Submissions deadline: December 15, 2011
  • Submit through our online form here

In 2012, Subtle Technologies celebrates our 15th anniversary with our annual Festival.

For 15 years Subtle Technologies has been bringing people together to promote wonder, incite creativity and spark innovation across disciplines. Our symposium, performances, workshops, screenings, exhibitions and networking sessions provide a forum to explore ideas and pose questions at the intersection of art, science and technology. Subtle Technologies is known internationally for presenting work by artists and scientists at the leading edge of their respective disciplines.

Our 2012 festival takes place from May 24 to May 27 2012 at various venues throughout Toronto. Our annual open call accepts submissions that bridge art, science and technology. This year we are also accepting submissions for a themed session which explores work inspired by biology, as outlined below. For both streams we are soliciting proposals from all disciplines and also welcome topics that explore ways of knowing that are outside of the western framework.

We are interested in receiving submissions from individuals as well as interdisciplinary teams and collaborative projects. We would like to present successful stories from artists and scientists working together. We are equally interested in hearing about the issues that inhibit disciplines from collaborating. What approaches can we take to foster inter-cultural exchanges when it comes to science or technology based work? How do we make scientific systems more accessible to artists as tools for creating new work?

Possible areas to be explored in this year’s Festival from either an artistic or scientific approach include:

  • Acoustics
  • Alternative energy
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Astronomy
  • Bioengineering
  • Bioethics
  • Chemistry
  • Complexity
  • Computer science
  • Consciousness
  • Environmental science
  • Ethnobotany
  • Funding strategies for interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Hacking and DIY culture
  • Imaging techniques and systems
  • Interactive systems
  • Indigenous science
  • Mathematics
  • Nanotechnology
  • Network Theory
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmacology
  • Psychology
  • Physics
  • Robotics
  • Science and society
  • Systems theory
  • Virtual worlds

In 2012 Subtle Technologies is also presenting a special session at our symposium that focuses on work inspired by, utilizing or hacking biological systems. This special session will include work by artists who are using live tissues, bacteria and other biological process in their work. We are also interested in submissions exploring enhancements or modifications to the human body through transhumanism. Projects which use concepts of biomimicry, genetic engineering and synthetic biology will also be considered for this special session. We are interested in both technical, socio-political and ethical issues surrounding this work.

The above topics are only suggested ones for inclusion in the Festival. Other relevant topics within the realm of art, science and technology will be considered.

To have your submission considered for either the symposium, poster session,  or a workshop please visit our submissions form here.

LA RÉSIDENCE : Tout au long de l’année APO33 invite des artistes à développer un travail insitu (sur le site) à travers une exposition, présentation, expérimentation, mise en abîme de leur propre travail ou en forme de collaboration (selon les propositions). La résidence se développe habituellement sur deux niveaux : un premier de préparation (environ 1 month) de l’installation, performance… ou pour expérimenter un projet de performance ou de construction architecturale et une deuxième étape où l’espace est ouvert au public (visite, participation, rendez-vous…). APO33 propose aussi son assistance technique aux personnes invités et notamment pour ceux qui utilisent des outils numériques et ouvert à l’utilisation de logiciel libre et open source. Les personnes invités pourront si elles le souhaitent faire une présentation de leur approche voir de questionnements plus théoriques sur les problématiques de la proposition.
APO33 se propose de prendre en charge les frais de transports, logements et défraiement et de mettre à disposition un petit budget de production (selon les demandes)
APO33 est un laboratoire artistique, technologique et théorique transdisciplinaire qui développe des projets collectifs divers alliant recherche, expérimentation et intervention dans l’espace social. S’inscrivant dans la continuité des dynamiques ouvertes par le mouvement des logiciels libres, APO33 se construit comme un espace modulaire, initiant des projets et processus de création collaboratifs et explorant de nouveaux modes de production et de diffusion artistiques et créatifs. A travers des workshops, des ateliers de partage, des séminaires, des interventions dans l’espace public, des créations, des rencontres internationales, des projets en ligne, des publications etc. APO33 interroge les transformations actuelles des pratiques artistiques et culturelles conséquence des réappropriations et usages des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication. Ce questionnement conduit APO33 à travailler aux marges du champ culturel pour explorer les passages et croisements qui peuvent s’opérer entre la création et d’autres disciplines ou pratiques sociales (activisme politique, médiation ou action sociale, sciences dures et sciences humaines, urbanisme, écologie, économie…).

Nomadic Village UK 2012
County Durham, North East England, May 21st – June 3rd 2012

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Deadline for Applications: Monday 28th November 2011
The Nomadic Village is a temporary 10-day settlement set up on a vacant lot in County Durham, UK. The nomadic artists’ mobile homes/ateliers will form the structure of the Village, with On The Road Productions’ (ORP) Steyr-Ikarus bus acting as its townhall. Artists will come together to work in this autonomous environment to stimulate creativity and exchange, and attract local people to observe and participate in the process. At the end of the Village there will be a public exhibition/show that will invite a wider audience to appreciate the works produced during the Village. The project is run by Klaus Maehring (Lead Artist and founder) from ORP/Austria.
The Nomadic Village UK 2012 is produced in collaboration with ISIS Arts (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) and supported by Durham County Arts Team. It will seek to invite nomadic artists from all over the world, whose practice is rooted in themes surrounding nomadism; those who intentionally displace themselves to seek encounters that not only influence their work but form it; artists who work without borders and constantly respond to situations, places and people along their journey. The Nomadic Village will act as a platform for artists working in this manner, ultimately creating a wider, more visible network for nomadic artists.
How to Apply:
This call is open to artists from all over the world, who preferably come with their own mobile space to live and work in. To apply please send us a description of the project you would like to realise at the Nomadic Village, an artist bio/statement and CV. Include supporting material/documentation of previous work, either attached to email or send us web links. Make sure we get an idea about who you are, your artistic practice, who is involved and what kind of mobile structure you will travel/work/live in. Let us know if for some reason you can’t come with your own vehicle; we might be able to provide you with a space. The Nomadic Village provides the site, infrastructure and food but does not pay for artists coming to the Village. However, if your travel costs are especially high, e.g. if you are coming with a big diesel hungry truck or flying from far away, you can apply to the Dizel Grant (see below).
We highly encourage you to contact us to talk about your proposal ideas, mobile space and travel arrangements before submitting an application – just for an informal chat, remember the deadline for submissions is Monday 28th November-so make sure you leave enough time to contact us.
Location:
Demesne Mill, Wolsingham, County Durham.
See google map of location: http://g.co/maps/fu2ch

Dizel Grant:
The Dizel Grant is an uncomplicated small grant to enable nomadic artists’ travel to the Nomadic Village UK 2012. It is especially for artist whose cost of travel is high. To apply for the Dizel grant send us your travel itinerary including costs. We highly encourage you to discuss this with us before submission and we can give you an idea of the level of support we can provide on a case by case basis.
The Traveling Exhibition:
After the public presentation in the Village, a selection of the artists’ work will be curated into a group exhibition. The bus will then hit the road, serving as a mobile gallery across England and Europe. It will travel to remote areas such as small villages and rural locations, as well as to cities and art centres.
Selection criteria includes:
• Artists whose work looks at themes of nomadism, working without borders, displacement,   dislocation, journey.
