Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal
Appel de dossiers pour l’événement 2011
 
THÈME PROPOSÉ :
Lumière spectrale
Commissaire invité : Scott McLeod
Œuvres recherchées
Scott McLeod s’intéresse aux œuvres qui évoquent le caractère fantomatique ou spectral de la photographie. À titre d’exemples, ces œuvres s’appuient ou s’inspirent de photographies d’une autre époque, présentent des personnes qui sont disparues ou mortes, évoquent subtilement des présences mystérieuses, abordent des sujets relatifs au temps, à l’espace, à la mémoire, au deuil ou à la mort. Cependant, la forme de l’œuvre peut excéder les limites de l’épreuve photographique conventionnelle et prendre la forme d’une sculpture éphémère, d’une vidéo d’art et d’une installation lumineuse, du moment qu’elle propose un dialogue avec la photographie et le thème de l’événement.

AVAILABLE LIGHT SCREENING COLLECTIVE: APPEL DE PROPOSITIONS DE PROGRAMMATION POUR LA SÉRIE AUTOMNE 2010 – ÉTÉ 2011

Available Light Screening Collective (appelé couramment AL) est une organisation bénévole d’Ottawa, en Ontario, qui a pris l’engagement de programmer et de présenter des œuvres vidéo et des films expérimentaux dans la collectivité locale. Depuis sa création en 1995 en tant que groupe de production de films Super 8, AL fonctionne à la manière d’un collectif d’artistes non constitué en personne morale, une forme de gouvernance démocratique et flexible en harmonie avec le caractère changeant des œ

uvres médiatiques expérimentales dynamiques qu’il se voue à présenter.

Available Light Screening Collective est actuellement à la recherche de propositions écrites de projets de programmation pour sa saison 2010-2011. La série commencera au début de septembre 2010, et la majorité des programmes seront présentés à son principal lieu de projection à Ottawa, à Club SAW de la Galerie SAW Gallery. Les propositions d’autres lieux de projection dans la région, y compris les sites en plein air, seront également prises en considération. Des honoraires professionnels seront versés au conservateur et un cachet remis à chaque artiste pour chaque œ

uvre projetée une fois que le projet aura été mené à bon terme.

Veuillez faire parvenir vos propositions écrites accompagnées d’un curriculum vitæ à jour et d’une lettre de présentation D’ICI LE 31 MARS 2010 à :

Available Light Screening Collective
A/S Cour des Arts
2, avenue Daly
Ottawa (Ontario) Canada
K1N 6E2

Au moment de préparer leurs demandes, les candidats retenus devraient prendre en compte les buts actuels d’Available Light Screening Collective : programmer et présenter régulièrement des œuvres vidéo et des films expérimentaux auxquels n’auraient autrement pas accès les publics de la région de la capitale nationale; fournir un contexte discursif et un forum de discussion sur les médias expérimentaux temporels et la culture artistique d’autogestion; encourager et appuyer les conservateurs canadiens du film expérimental et des œuvres vidéo, en particulier au sein de la communauté artistique d’Ottawa; mettre à la disposition des publics, actuels et nouveaux, les œuvres d’arts médiatiques temporelles; projeter les œuvres d’artistes locaux aux côtés de celles d’artistes nationaux et internationaux; créer des ponts thématiques entre les divers médias temporels et raviver l’intérêt pour les œuvres historiques en les jumelant à des œuvres contemporaines; établir des liens de collaboration et des projets avec des organisations artistiques d’autres régions de la province et du pays, en particulier avec les organismes autogérés de diffusion d’œ

uvres artistiques; et rémunérer convenablement les artistes et les conservateurs pour leur travail professionnel.

Pour obtenir des renseignements supplémentaires, communiquez avec AL par courriel à : availablelightcollective [arobas] gmail [point] com

Available Light Screening Collective est reconnaissant au Conseil des Arts du Canada, au Conseil des arts de l’Ontario et à la Ville d’Ottawa pour le financement accordé à ses projets.

Le programme pilote Artistes en résidence (santé) du CAO 


Une collaboration entre les prestataires artistiques et les prestataires de soins de santé en Ontario

Toronto, 16 février 2010 – Le Conseil des arts de l’Ontario (CAO) a lancé un programme pilote intitulé Artistes en résidence (santé). Cette nouvelle initiative subventionne les résidences d’artistes dans le milieu des soins de santé pour conjuguer mieux-être et créativité. Le CAO versera en 2010 jusqu’à 93 350 $ des frais artistiques dans deux centres de santé désignés.
Le CAO a établi un partenariat avec le Centre régional de santé de North Bay, qui prévoit ouvrir ses portes le 30 janvier 2011, et le Centre de santé communautaire Four Villages de Toronto. Ils auront comme partenaires artistiques la W.K.P. Kennedy Gallery de North Bay et le Centre for Digital Storytelling de Toronto. Les fonds du CAO sont destinés aux frais artistiques et de subsistance des artistes en résidence. Les partenaires artistiques collaborent étroitement avec le CAO aussi bien qu’avec les partenaires de soins de santé. Ces derniers, quant à eux, assureront aux artistes l’espace nécessaire. Aucun montant du financement des soins de première ligne ne sera affecté à ce pilote.
Bushra Junaid, chef de la liaison et du développement du CAO, a indiqué que « lors de nos consultations publiques de 2008, les collectivités ontariennes nous ont fait savoir haut et fort qu’elles favorisaient les initiatives de décloisonnement pour que les arts agrémentent non seulement les espaces culturels mais aussi la vie de tous les jours ».

Partenaires artistiques
• Un artiste du nord de l’Ontario sera choisi pour la première résidence à North Bay. Celle-ci, destinée à créer l’espace et à donner le ton dans l’établissement, se tiendra en été 2010, période pendant laquelle le corps médical intégrera les locaux nouveau Centre régional de santé de North Bay.
• Pour la deuxième résidence, la W.K.P. Kennedy Gallery invitera les artistes professionnels en début de carrière ou établis, du Canada ou d’autres pays, à faire une demande de résidence de deux ou trois mois qui intéressera le centre de santé à leur travail dans les arts visuels, médiatiques ou interdisciplinaires.
• Cette deuxième résidence, qui débutera quand l’établissement ouvrira ses portes en janvier 2011, encouragera activement l’interaction entre les artistes, les travailleurs de la santé, les patients et les visiteurs. Les artistes animeront aussi des activités de sensibilisation – causeries, ateliers, expositions – visant à familiariser davantage le public de l’établissement avec les arts.
• Les artistes seront choisis par un jury composé d’artistes en exercice et de professionnels de la santé de la région. Le projet, surnommé Arts Santé Nord, coïncidera avec l’ouverture du nouvel établissement de pointe que sera le Centre régional de santé de North Bay.
• La W.K.P. Kennedy Gallery annoncera au printemps 2010 les dates limites de présentation des demandes pour la deuxième résidence.
• À Toronto, le Centre for Digital Storytelling et le Centre de santé communautaire Four Villages collaborent à un projet vidéo d’une durée de six mois. Ce projet de narration d’histoires en format numérique verra la réalisation de vignettes de deux à cinq minutes sur des personnes de tout âge et de tout horizon de l’établissement.
• Jennifer LaFontaine, l’artiste choisie pour diriger le projet, a signalé que « dans un centre de santé, le pouvoir transformateur de la narration peut être tonique et aider ceux qui cherchent à guérir et à comprendre. Il humanise davantage l’établissement tout en éclairant et en exprimant certaines des questions critiques auxquelles sont confrontés les clients de Four Villages.
• Notre objectif consiste à partager ces histoires avec dignité et à voir comment le projet de narration pourrait se développer dans l’établissement ».

Contexte

• Le programme pilote Artistes en résidence (santé) a été adapté pour répondre aux besoins particuliers de chaque établissement. Les deux projets incarnent une façon unique d’introduire les arts et la créativité dans le contexte de la santé et du mieux-être tout en explorant les moyens par lesquels une initiative d’action communautaire peut avoir des retombées positives sur l’espace physique d’un établissement et le vécu qui l’investit.
• Comme l’affirme Dermot Wilson, directeur-conservateur de la W.K.P. Kennedy Gallery à North Bay et membre du comité des arts du Centre régional de santé de North Bay, « ce programme, qui fait participer l’artiste et l’art contemporain au processus de rétablissement, met en évidence le fait que le bien-être psychologique, la créativité et l’espace physique sont indissociables de ce processus ».
• Les partenaires de North Bay ont formé un comité chargé de développer et de promouvoir le programme de résidence. « Notre groupe comprend notamment des architectes, des artistes, des médecins, des infirmières, des dentistes et des administrateurs. Nous avons tous bénéficié d’un niveau d’appui sans précédent pour le projet Arts Santé Nord.
• Les habitants de North Bay et de la région sont déterminés à respecter l’esprit du programme. Ils estiment que, dans ce cas-ci, l’art apportera une différence quantifiable », ajoute M. Wilson.
• Artistes en résidence (santé) s’inspire du programme Artistes en résidence (éducation) du CAO, lancé en 2007-2008 et comptant désormais cinq partenaires éducatifs en Ontario.

Les arts et la santé
• L’intérêt pour les liens entre l’art et la santé a considérablement augmenté ces dernières années, et différents organismes de financement des arts aux États-Unis, en Australie et en Grande-Bretagne explorent un éventail d’initiatives dans le domaine des arts et de la santé.
• De nouvelles publications de recherche ont aussi fait leur apparition, comme Arts and Health: An International Journal for Research, Policy and Practice. De plus en plus d’éléments probants laissent entrevoir les incidences positives de l’intégration des arts dans les services de santé communautaires.
• En 2009, la SAH (Society for Arts in Healthcare) a publié un document intitulé State of the Field Report: Arts in Healthcare. Cette société américaine fait valoir que les initiatives artistiques dans le secteur de la santé sont non seulement susceptibles d’améliorer l’état de santé général des patients, mais entraînent aussi de nombreux effets favorables à la fois chez les patients, qui entre autres se conforment davantage au traitement, et chez les travailleurs de la santé, dont le milieu environnant se trouve amélioré.
• De nouvelles données de la SAH suggèrent même que des initiatives créatrices de ce genre ont un impact économique certain parce qu’elles réduisent la durée de séjour des patients et, en fin de compte, le coût global des soins de santé.

L’Équipe des Projets spéciaux de Radio Canada International lance Racines, un grand concours national de courts métrages et de documents multimédia. Le concours Racines invite tous les Canadiens et les résidents permanents âgés de plus de 18 ans à soumettre leurs œuvres, d’une durée de 3 à 8 minutes. Ce concours cherche à stimuler la participation citoyenne et à mettre en relief la contribution de toutes les cultures à la grande mosaïque canadienne.
Radio Canada International est à la recherche d’œuvres originales, éclatées, traditionnelles, ou avant-gardistes qui explorent des formes narratives diverses que ce soit par la fiction, le documentaire, le reportage télévisuel, le photo-montage, l’animation, ou tout autre projet qui inclut l’image. Qu’il s’agisse de comédie, de polar, de drame d’un commentaire, d’un slam, d’une vidéo d’art, l’équipe des projets spéciaux veut entendre ce que vous avez à dire sur vos racines … ou leur absence!
“«Vous venez d’où? On me le demande souvent et tout ce que je trouve à répondre c’est que voulez-vous dire?… d’un point de vue géographique, génétique ou culturel? Mon identité, mes racines, sont une partie ou la somme des trois» précise Boris Chassagne, le coordonnateur du projet. «Ce que j’espère des participants c’est la sincérité, la surprise, l’humour, le tragique, le touchant, c’est d’être vibrant, puisque en fait, tout le monde a une histoire à raconter».”
Le concours comporte également un volet anglophone, intitulé Roots Challenge. La date limite pour soumettre les oeuvres en français comme en anglais, est le 7 Mars 2010. Les lauréats du concours se partageront près de 13 000$ en prix et leurs noms seront dévoilés en ligne au printemps 2010. Le jury de Radio Canada International sélectionnera parmi les meilleures œ

uvres, huit lauréats, dans les deux langues officielles du concours. Les internautes auront aussi leur mot à dire, en votant en ligne, sur le site web www.rcinet.ca/racines pour leurs candidats favoris dans les catégories court métrage et multimédia.

SoundFjord is a London-based gallery and research station newly instigated to address the lack of exhibiting space exclusively for works of Sound Art.

The gallery is organised for the exhibition and documentation of works, the development of artists within their practice, and ultimately, the promotion and dissemination of Sound Art and its related research and practice.

We are currently organising our exhibition and events calendar and are welcoming interested parties to tender for exhibition, starting mid 2010.

Please email SoundFjord for further information on the space, if you would like to sign up to our mailing list, or need an application form.

CYNETART Competition 2010 || Self-image of CYNETART-Festival

entry deadline 28th February 2010

Statement:
Media art is the sensate modelling and equally the almost scientific exploration of the human perception assisted by instruments of media technology. Its starting point is the sensate and conscious presence in our world. This includes various relationships between intrinsic and extrinsic experiences. (see Werner Jauk)

The desired objective of the competition is a multi-perspective discussion of the present development, serving to sensualise the connections.
Based on an „architecture of human perception“

(Klaus Nicolai) we differentiate exploration and modelling according to the following dimensions of human existence in time and space:

_ cosmic
_ global
_ social
_ cultural
_ transcendental
_ mental
_ sensate
_ psychic
_ organic
_ neuro-electric
_ bio-chemical
_ genetic
_ (sub-)atomic

Media art reflects a culture, which is constituted from a global participation and networking of electronic technologies. How does this electronic networking and re-presence of our world affect our perception? How can our perception be modified in order to manage the networking potential adequately? How does the perception of the human inside and outside re-organise itself in this process? What significance does the internet in terms of social networking have for a culture of evolutionary self-organisation and a new structure of information, education and intelligence? How do the mediatisation processes affect the human perception in terms of specialisation and universalisation.
How do the interactions between social actors change the social relations and the individual identity formation as a result of media usage and an increasing dependence from media. How do the technically mediated types of perception interact with the direct sensate types of perception?

Artistic applications provide the opportunity for the public to practice a responsible way of perception in learning about an active participation in „test arrangements“

. This helps to develop an appropriate attitude towards human and natural potentials. To this end the following is wanted: dynamic models for the exploration, testing and development of a multi-dimensional perception of body and space. It is essentially all about prototype examinations on the correlation between innovative technology and the cognitive as well as communicative processes of humans, but also between new media and traditional culture. Performative productions and installations of test arrangements should be given precedence in the funding by CYNETART festival.
Performance formats/Test arrangements:

I. The musicalised everyday life of digital culture – Automatic Clubbing („PopCultureArt“)

II. The internet as social site of reorganisation (Social-Art & Political-Art Network/Software) (NetSocialArt)

III. The internet as virtual site of physical interaction and co-production (interactive and networked virtual environments) (BodyNetArt)

IV. Parameters of physical being – perception of the inner world –

the body as outer space (HumanScienceArt)

CologneOFF VI – Let’s Celebrate!!
In 2010, CologneOFF – Cologne Online Film Festival


is celebrating it 5th anniversary – a good reason to try the new festival concept as a networked festival, including a networked jury, networked contributions and a series of networked screenings between September and December 2010 and beyond.

CologneOFF – founded in 2006 by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne as a new type of film and video festival dedicated to art forms of film and video in a global context – is following a successfull concept of a festival without a static location of its own.
It does not last just 2 or 3 days a year, but is all the year everyday 24 hours available to the audience online and simultaneouslöy via physical screenings in cooperation with partner festivals.
This independance of availabliity on one hand, and dependance on networking partners makes CologneOFF most attractive not only to the audience, but basically also to the participating artists/directors and their films and videos due to a lasting promotion, confidence and trust.
After 5 successful festival editions, i.e
CologneOFF I – “Identityscapes” – 2006 – CologneOFF II – “Image vs Music” – 2006
CologneOFF III – “Toon! Toon! – art cartoons and animates narriatives” – 2007
CologneOFF IV – “Here We Are! – 2008
CologneOFF V – Taboo! Taboo? – 2009
and their physical manifestations 2006-2010 – in New Dehli/India, Rotterdam/NL, Maracaibo/Venezuela, Rosario/Argentina, Lyon/France, Belgrade/Serbia, Szeczin/Poland, Brussels/Belgium, Istanbul/Turkey, Guadaljara/Mexico, Athens/Greece, Sarajevo/Bosnia-Hercegovia, Thessaloniki/Greece, Kalamata/Greece, Clermont-Ferrand/France, Jakarta/Indonesia, Hong Kong/ China, Bristol/UK and many more –
CologneOFF is taking the occasion of its 5th anniversary to thank all artists & directors, partners and the audience and invites all to celebrate CologneOFF VI under the festival theme “let’s celebrate – memory and identity in an experimental context” to be launched in September 2010 as part of NewMediaFest’2010 –

23rd Festival LES INSTANTS VIDEO, Marseille
Deadline: 21 June 2010
 
The 23rd Instants Video is an event dedicated to the electronic and media arts.
Every year we present international programs of video art and experimental documentaries, video installations, artists’ CD-ROM, performances, poets, conferences and public debates…

You will find an entry form on our site www.instantsvideo.com
We will watch the works you will forward us with attention, being aware that electronic poetry is fragile, delicate, quivering…
 
Who are we
The festival Les Instants Video (international video art and multimedia festival) wants to be a space/time where destinies come across each other, where new cartographies of creation can be weaved, where new lines can be opened in direction to new comets…
Les Instants Vidéo Numériques et poétiques is a non-profit art organisation (association law 1901). It inherited from the Festival founded in 1988 in Manosque (Department of Alpes de Haute Provence). Since 2004, it is based in Marseille and cultivates nomadism. We are always looking for the encounters of publics and artists that we like to name the electronic poets.
 
What we aim to
– Support and promote video art and multimedia creation 
→ with the multiplication of number of screenings all the year long, in France and abroad, 
→with the diversification of the places/spaces where we present our programs (cinemas, galleries, universities, schools of arts, prisons, theatres, museums, social centres, schools, media libraries….) and with a deep complicity of our partners,
→ with publishing (the magazines BREF, 24 Images, artists biographies…), 
→ with the organisation of theoretical and practical training, 
→ with forging the mobility and the fellowship/connection of the works of art and the artists, 
→ with the development of audiences, awared, interested, critical and lively.
– Favorise the encounters audiences-works of art-artists, as an invitation to see and think the world, to cross the glances, sharing knowledge, experiences, understanding, imagination of the other, of elsewhere.    

What we do 
All the year long, we are making stops in France and abroad, to lead the following activities:
- the festival Les Instants Video nomad, every year in autumn (in 2009, it was 72 days, 5 countries, 10 towns, 30 different spaces, 456 works of art coming from 65 countries, and more than 50 artists invited),
- workshops of awareness and of creation, as laboratories of experimentation, inspiration and education,
- conferences about the history of video art and about the international creation, 
- international screenings that we always accompany and which are written as poems, 
- development of methods of preservation, archiving and dissemination of multimedia arts (4033  referenced works of arts by more than 2347 artists), 
- (inter)national cooperations shaped like a constellation, in which the artistic creation is approach as an essential component of the society, dealing with social, political and cultural issues.

Works must be sent  together with the entry form to
L’association des Les Instants Vidéo Numériques et poétiques
Friche la Belle de Mai – 13331 Marseille Cedex 03 – France

GLOW, April 30th-May 2nd, Z-Bar, Berlin Mitte
Deadline: March 8th, 2010
 
GLOW manifests from a winters hearth of cinematic program and ambient installation in Berlin, to a new program exploring the rite of Spring’s luminescence and life.
In this latest incarnation of GLOW, curators Adam Nankervis, Gillian Morris and founder and initiator of GLOW, Leo Kuelbs invite video and new media artists to respond in both narrative form and ambient installation dialogues in form of radiant bursts found within the GLOW.
Hedonism, transcendence, utopias (lost and found), idylls and euphoria(s) explored.
Sunbursts in Arcadian passages, GLOW will again represent short dialogue driven videos in a traditional cinema-going experience, edited into a program following the success of the first presentation of GLOW in January 2010 and the installation of video/new media work throughout Z-Bar, Berlin.

Submissions for narrative should exceed no longer than 5-7 mins.
Submissions should be to one of the three curators by March 8th, 2010. 
 Installation and ambient works will share three monitors throughout Z-Bar on three separate loops unless a work demands its own requited loop.
GLOW curators are pleased to announce that the large attendance of the GLOW manifest in January was attended over the course of the evening by over 200 visitors and has generated much excitement.
GLOW will be presented on Berlin Gallery Weekend in Mitte, central Berlin, April 30th-May 2nd, 2010 and expects a large patronage of artists, curators and collectors and the general public alike.
 We, the curtors, would like to thank all participating artists in GLOW in January for making this event so rich, vibrant in the excellence of the work you so generously provided.

INVITATION TO AN INTERNATIONAL PRE-QUALIFYING COMPETITION FOR THE STAVANGER REGION’S NEW CONCERT HALL

Solo artists and collaborating groups are hereby invited to take part in an international pre-qualifying round for a lighting project in the New Concert Hall in Stavanger, to be completed in 2012.
Stavanger New Concert Hall will be of a high international standard, and be centrally situated, close to other cultural institutions and two new music schools in the Bjergsted Park area of the city.
The building is specially designed for musical events, but will also accommodate many other kinds of event for large and small audiences both in the two performance halls inside, and immediately outside in the large amphitheatre.


Through this pre-qualification, the Art Committee is seeking candidates to take part in a limited competition for a significant indoor art project, where light is an important premise.  The defined space is in the centre of the building; in section, starting on the ground floor outside the Multipurpose Hall, it opens up, traversing five floors.  This part of the Concert Hall has large glass facades on two sides and a selection of materials that contribute to erasing the division between exterior and interior spaces.  This openness is important: the art work will be visible from far away and therefore represent the Hall, as well as being a significant element in the whole entrance area and amphitheatre.
Inside, the art project should be a distinctive feature and contribute favourably to the visitor’s impression upon entering this large public space.  It is here that the public will best experience the interior dimensions of the Concert Hall.  It is also where audiences will congregate as they progress up and down the stairs.  A work of art for this location must have a distinctive character and it must function regardless of the prevailing circumstances, including in daytime or in difficult light conditions.
The pre-qualification presentation should be a maximum of ten A4 pages (on paper, not e-mailed or on CD).  The submission should include a presentation of art projects, a CV and practise and relevant experience.  The Art Committee also wants to see, in brief, motivation for entering the competition and reason for interest in the project.  No ideas or sketches for this project are wanted at this stage.
The overall art plan for the New Concert Hall in
Stavanger, and more information on the art projects, are available at: www.koro.no/stavangerconcerthall 
These pages will be updated and will show the results of the pre-qualifying round.



There is more information on the concert hall at:  www.konserthus.no
