Nuit Blanche Ottawa dévoile un nouveau  thème dramatique
et lance un appel aux artistes, à l’échelle internationale!
Ottawa (ON) le 16 février 2012  – Le thème de la prochaine Nuit Blanche Ottawa est officiellement lancé : « La vie est belle /Life is Beautiful ». Tout artiste d’Ottawa ou d’ailleurs, peu importe sa discipline, pourra proposer de nouveaux projets excitants reliés à ce thème par le biais de cet appel de propositions en cours lancé officiellement aujourd’hui.
Aux dires de Stefan St-Laurent, commissaire invité de cette première édition, l’événement sera « une manifestation passionnée de nos rêves et espoirs collectifs, et rassemblera divers artistes qui sauront interpréter de façon unique, la beauté et la dignité de la vie humaine. Ce sera définitivement une expérience émouvante et inspirante pour toute personne impliquée! » À l’heure d’incertitudes politiques et sociales, Nuit Blanche Ottawa fait appel aux artistes afin de présenter des œuvres renouant avec la vie et célébrant l’esprit indestructible de l’être humain.
Ayant lieu le 22 septembre 2012 au Marché By et dans les régions du quartier Hintonburg, Nuit Blanche Ottawa collaborera avec plus de 30 galeries, musées, festivals, organisations et ambassades; et est sur le point de devenir le plus grand événement artistique collectif de l’histoire d’Ottawa. Grâce à des événements, des installations et des expositions se passant à l’intérieur comme à l’extérieur, et se déroulant pendant toute une nuit, on a l’intention de démontrer au monde entier à quel point la vie artistique à Ottawa peut être différente, animée et unique!
Le commissaire invité, Stefan St-Laurent, auprès des commissaires Lainie Towell (les arts de la rue), et Megan Smith (les arts visuels), feront la sélection de plus de 100 artistes et artistes de performance qui participeront à ce colossal événement multidisciplinaire. L’équipe de commissaires retiendra moins cinq artistes locaux ou internationaux (voire plus) afin de présenter des installations à grande échelle et des performances pendant toute la nuit.
Nous encourageons tout spécialement les artistes émergents et établis de la région d’Ottawa à soumettre des projets, car nous désirons que la première édition de Nuit Blanche Ottawa fasse plein feux sur l’incroyable ressource de talents provenant de nos communautés culturelles, aussi diverses que vibrantes. La date de tombée pour la soumission de propositions provenant d’artistes et de collectifs d’artistes est le 2 avril 2012. On trouvera une copie de l’appel aux artistes en pièce jointe.
La vie sera sans doute belle le 22 septembre prochain alors qu’Ottawa se fera l’hôtesse de sa première Nuit Blanche!
Nuit Blanche Ottawa est organisée par BRAVO-Est, et est subventionnée en partie par la Fondation Trillium de l’Ontario. Pour de plus amples renseignements, ou pour s’impliquer, prière de consulter notre site web www.nuitblancheottawa.ca

Le Labo – Toronto

Appel à projets: Génération dissémination
Date limite: vendredi, le 24 février 2012
Appel à projets:
C’est naturel pour un artiste de vouloir marquer l’histoire, d’être reconnu et enregistré pour son travail. En revanche, pour un artiste de participer à l’écriture de l’histoire en général est un objectif différent. La production de la documentation de l’art, et de la documentation comme art, sont des pratiques qui dialoguent et se rapportent au reportage journalistique. Le choix de médium et des méthodes de distribution de la documentation de l’art déterminent sa trajectoire vers le monde et l’avenir. Le rapport entre la documentation et son sujet est plus compliqué que jamais: une installation est diffusée par livestream, l’art en ligne laisse sa trace numérique, les activités quotidiennes sont documentées comme une performance vidéo. Comment est-ce que les méthodes de documentation et distribution de l’art pourraient affecter l’écrit de l’histoire marquée d’aujourd’hui? Comment est-ce que l’histoire d’aujourd’hui sera lue demain?
Nous cherchons des propositions d’artistes utilisant les médiums (mais pas limité à) tel la vidéo, le film, l’art interactif, l’art en ligne, la performance et/ou l’installation. Nous demandons aux artistes de proposer une œuvre à plusieurs niveaux incluant un geste « original », et la documentation de ou par ce geste. Le lieu d’exécution du geste original peut être exécuté hors de l’espace de la galerie (ex: une installation à site spécifique, une performance privée, un endroit géographique éloigné) ; ils doivent toutefois être exécutés durant le temps d’exposition. La documentation de ce geste sera produite par l’artiste et montée dans la galerie avant le terme de l’exposition. Les projets proposés doivent considérer le format de l’exposition. L’usage de la documentation devrait être un aspect central du travail. Pour plus d’information, vous pouvez vous adresser au contact indiqué ci-dessous.
L’exposition est commissionnée par Maggie Flynn pour le programme de mentorat de Le Labo, sous la tutelle d’Alissa Firth-Eagland. Le Labo (www.lelabo.ca) a pour mission de produire et diffuser des projets francophones en arts médiatiques et pratiques interdisciplinaires. Ce projet acceptera des propositions d’artistes francophones et non-francophones. L’exposition se tiendra en avril 2012. Les frais d’artistes et les coûts raisonnables de transport seront payés.
Les propositions doivent inclure:
•    CV
•    Une énoncé artistique (1 paragraphe)
•    Une description du projet proposé (1 page maximum – incluez l’information technique, des matériaux. Décrivez l’endroit et contexte du geste original et le processus de la documentation)
•    Matériel d’appui (5 -10 images, liens, ou jusqu’à 10 minutes d’oeuvres vidéo/audio)
•    Liste de matériel d’appui (contexte, durée, date)
SVP envoyez votre candidature à : contact [arobas] maggieflynn [point] ca
Date limite du dépôt de candidature : vendredi le 24 février 2012

Invitation à
La MINUTE VIDÉO FOLIE/CULTURE
Québec, le 31 janvier 2012. Folie/Culture propose à tous — artistes professionnels ou amateurs, membres, proches et intervenants du milieu social — de s’investir dans une expérience de réflexion particulière : réaliser une vidéo d’une minute sur le thème Extase, la vie et autres pratiques extatiques.
À travers la recherche d’un sens à la vie, les réponses viennent indifféremment de la raison pure ou des dérives de la raison et se manifestent sous forme de poésie, de mysticisme, de hurlement, de rage, de burlesque, de symbolisme, de pratiques excessives où la douleur est vécue comme une expérience nécessaire. Nous supposons avec un brin d’ironie que la vie est une pratique extatique; il convient ici d’en explorer d’autres.
Les courts-métrages sélectionnés seront diffusés en octobre 2012 à l’entrée vidéo de l’Œil de Poisson dans le cadre de l’événement Extase, la vie et autres pratiques extatiques.
Pour participer, vous pouvez :

OPTION A : Produire une vidéo — fiction, documentaire, vidéo d’art — en un plan-séquence
d’une minute en continu sur le thème Extase, la vie et autres pratiques extatiques. Attention :
Aucun montage d’image ou de son n’est permis; seule la musique originale ou libre de droits est acceptée.
Formats : Mini-DV, CD ou DVD data (fichier .mov ou .avi non compressé)

OPTION B (NOUVEAU !) : Produire une vidéo d’animation d’une durée d’une minute sur le thème Extase, la vie et autres pratiques extatiques. Seule la musique originale ou libre de droits est acceptée.
Formats : Mini-DV, CD ou DVD data (fichier .mov ou .avi non compressé)
Date limite de dépôt : 31 mars 2012
Faites-nous parvenir votre vidéo accompagnée de vos coordonnées (prénom, nom, adresse complète, numéro de téléphone et adresse électronique) par la poste à l’adresse suivante :
La Minute vidéo Folie/Culture 281, rue De Saint-Vallier Est Québec (Québec) G1K 3P5

À partir de maintenant, les propositions pourront être envoyées tout au long de l’année. Il s’agit dans ce cas d’ouvrir un échange avec les différents professionnels de l’art dont les recherches et l’expérimentation pourront activer différents espaces et produire différentes formes autant dans l’espace de la galerie que hors-les-murs. Il pourra s’agit d’une intervention, d’un partenariat, d’un projet de commissariat, d’ateliers de production, d’un cours de maître, d’une publication, d’un séminaire ou colloque, de performances, conférences, ou projections ponctuelles ou en série, d’une fouille dans les archives, d’une initiative de financement ou même d’un ensemble de ces formes dans un projet d’envergure.

Les propositions pour le programme SKOOL doivent être envoyées au plus tard le 15 mars 2012, le cachet de la poste faisant foi.

Tous les dossiers (pour SKOOL ainsi que pour la programmation régulière) doivent comprendre :
•    Un texte présentant votre projet de même que son inscription dans votre parcours artistique;
•    Un curriculum vitæ (max. 3 p.) par participant, selon le cas ;
•    Un CD/DVD comprenant un maximum de 15 images (JPGs n’excédant pas 1 Mo ou 1024 X 768 pixels), et/ou un CD/DVD vidéo ou audio (5 min. max.). Un maximum de 2 CD/DVD de documentation est alloué – tout matériel supplémentaire ne sera pas considéré ;
•    Une description détaillée de vos images ou vidéos;
•    Une enveloppe pré-affranchie pour le retour de votre dossier.
Information générale :
•    L’appel régulier est ouvert aux professionnels en art de tout âge et expérience ; l’appel SKOOL s’adresse exclusivement aux étudiants et récents diplômés universitaires (qui ont moins de 3 ans de pratique professionnelle) ;

Trinity Square Video (Toronto, ON): Call to Video Artists, Deadline March 5
Trinity Square Video’s Themed Commissions
Call for Submission: CENTRE
Deadline: March 5, 2012

Trinity Square Video announces a call for submissions to CENTRE, the third and final act of the TSV Commission trilogy, LEFT, RIGHT, CENTER. This commission asks artists to use lens-based material from the Archives of Ontario (134 Ian Macdonald Boulevard) as subject or reference for the production of a 10-minute video or video-based installation* that examines contemporary politics.

Continuing TSV’s celebration of its 40th anniversary as a centre for the production of art, we are looking for three successful proposals to CENTRE. Although selected artists’ projects will be developed through five months of research, development, and production with the Archives and TSV, the initial proposal should display a strong understanding of kind of material that will be used for the final project. Applicants will need to explore the Archives online collection databases and exhibitions: http://www.archives.gov.on.ca

In mid-February, TSV will host an in-house presentation by the Archives of Ontario. Open to all, this general introduction to the Archives is an excellent opportunity for artists to gain an understanding of what this incredible resource can offer them. Please contact TSV or check out our website for more information and the date and time.

For CENTRE, we are seeking proposals for the creation of work that investigates « centre » in various ways: the median or the moderate; a fixed point where things pivot; the idea of the institution–centres like the Archives or TSV–as public resources; the privileging of the eye, the power of its vision, and the social or historical weight of its perspective; a nucleus or a beginning.

This is a commission for the production of video art. TSV is seeking submissions that propose to explore pertinent issues related, but not limited, to representation, identity, geography and space, economics, justice, divisions of labour and power, science, history, and philosophy. These works can be critical, humorously self-effacing, discursively political, or experimental in their analysis and construction.

Proposed artworks can employ video through a variety of strategies, including narrative or documentary form, formalist or materialist practices, animation or compositing, non-lens-based video production and motion graphics, and through video installation*.

Selected artists receive:
– $750 in production equipment rentals;
– 40 hours of editing time;
– 2 TSV workshops;
– Support from TSV’s technical and artistic Staff;
– TSV membership or renewal;
– $500 honorarium;
– A public screening/exhibition (October 2012–expected);
– Inclusion in the LEFT, RIGHT, CENTER catalogue (published at the completion of the trilogy)

While each project is created separately, the artists participate in group-critiques of works-in-progress, where they can receive peer-support and feedback.

Submissions will be reviewed by the TSV Programming Committee who will make selections based on the proposed project’s exploration of the theme, CENTRE, as well as its intended examination, experimentation and expansion of video as an art medium.

All Toronto-based emerging, mid-career and established visual artists, video artists, media artists, and filmmakers are welcome to submit proposals to CENTRE. Proposals from those living outside Toronto and surrounding area must ensure that the artist will attend all CENTRE related activities at their own expense.

*Video installations can be proposed as part of CENTRE, although artists are also required to create single-channel versions appropriate for the public screening. Selected artists working in single-channel video or video installation will receive the same resources from TSV, as outlined above.

Proposals must include an application form available at http://www.trinitysquarevideo.com

Trinity Square Video (TSV) is a not-for-profit artist-run centre for the production, presentation, education and dissemination of video by artists and community organizations. Since 1971, TSV has made access to the means of representation its priority, providing a diverse community of video practitioners media-arts related development through workshops, seminars and classes, as well as offering a space for the creation and exhibition of video art. Through its public programming, TSV has advanced the understanding and appreciation of video produced by various community-based groups and numerous internationally recognized artists.

TSV gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and the Toronto Arts Council.

Call for Project Submissions
Festival of Regions 2013 / Digging Up
7–16 June 2013
Project submission deadline: 16 May 2012
Venue: Eferding (Austria)
www.fdr.at

The Festival of Regions has been exploring and conquering a region or a town in Upper Austria every two years since 1993. Far from the metropolises and cultural centres, a program with contemporary art and culture is designed and communicated to all the residents of a chosen region. Apart from regional, national and international participation by creative artistic and cultural agents, collaboration with local associations, institutions and individuals is sought to anchor the festival in the area and thus leave behind traces that are as deep and distinct as can be. Apart from reinforcing and furthering regional initiatives in the cultural sector, raising awareness of cultural developments is one of the festival’s aims in combination with the aspects of communication, open dialogue and interconnecting everyday culture and art.
The festival venue of Eferding is known principally as a commercial vegetable growing area, especially as a supplier of mini-gherkins that are harvested by the legendary ‘gherkin flyers.’ It is less well-known that Eferding, founded in 1222, is the third oldest town in Austria and can look back on an eventful history that stretches from the Nibelung saga via the peasant uprisings up to the dominant royal house of the Starhembergers. This time we will be engaging with a conservative, good middle-class town. As always at the Festival of Regions, the public domain will serve as both a space for artistic action and a hospitable meeting place. There is a variety of interior spaces in the town available for performances and installations. From the centre the festival program can expand into the nearby environs.
Digging Up is the motto for the Eferding Festival of Regions. On the one hand, this suits the agricultural character of the place, and on the other, digging up can also bring to the light of day things that have been hidden and covered up. In any case, things first have to be dug up if something new is to grow, if new fruits are to be harvested. The motto is therefore a metaphor for planting today’s art and culture, whereby rare plants and blossoms are hoped for in all possible mutations and variations.
Call for submissions
Project proposals are invited from all artistic areas and genres. In an atmosphere of openness, projects with local specificity will be given preference nonetheless, along with endeavours that engage with the town’s social history and draw in as many strata of the population and individual positive forces as possible, for which role we will gladly function as mediator. Connotations with the festival motto of Digging Up will also be considered. However, please do not submit already-made projects without any connection to the festival’s location or theme.
Details
Submissions in German or English with a maximum of seven pages. Deadline for submissions is 16 May 2012 (postmark) by normal mail or by e-mail as a Word or PDF file to the Festival of Regions, Marktplatz 12, 4100 Ottensheim / Austria; einreichung [arobas] fdr [point] at, Telephone +43 (0)7234 – 85285, www.fdr.at

a unique artist-led event – 10-12th August 2012
Deadline for Proposals: 31st March 2012
www.supernormalfestival.co.uk
Now in it’s third year, (having evolved from Braziers International Artists’Workshop), SUPERNORMAL offers a platform for visual arts and artists of all disciplines to draw inspiration from the event’s unique ethos and setting. An opportunity for dialogue, exchange and exploration of art-focused practice and action in an experimental environment where risks can be taken and leaps of imagination can occur. We encourage participation in the festival as both artist and spectator to give the arts a wider audience and artists a greater challenge outside the conventional gallery space – putting the arts at the heart of the festival.
Proposals & Selection Process
Proposals will go through a selection process and will be judged on the quality of the idea, along with an understanding of the context and audience of Supernormal. As an event that promotes an amalgam of experimental art and music, we will be looking for work that may offer a different viewing or participatory experience – that engages and inspires thought, whether challenging or easily accessible. The work should show understanding of the audience for an event that promotes experimental art and music and work that breaks new ground.
Supernormal welcomes proposals from artists, performers and groups as detailed above. Please include an outline of your idea, work or project in as much detail as possible along with any supporting images and links. (up to 750 words)
Funding & Resources
Supernormal is a not-for-profit event with an invisible budget and limited resources, although we are currently working on funding proposals to assist in the production of work. We would encourage artists to source outside funding where possible. We can provide artists with guest passes to the event, food and drinks, promotion of projects and profiles.
Things to consider  
-How you plan to execute the work  
-How much time will you need on site  
-What materials and resources you will need  
-Consideration of the weather  
-Location of work on site (would you need a pre-visit)  
-Is it self-supporting  -Does it involve participation  
-How you will facilitate the work during the event

Information: http://www.uleth.ca/finearts/departments/art/gushul-residency-programs

DEADLINE EXTENDED – February 29, 2012

Trapdoor is announcing the seventh annual Gushul Studio Residency and Collaboration Project. We seek proposals from emerging visual artists working in any media.

The residency seeks to combine the skills, knowledge, histories and varied approaches of two emerging visual artists. At least one artist will be chosen from within Alberta. The other artist will be chosen from outside Alberta.

Artists will be chosen based on the strength and merit of their ongoing production as well as their collaborative abilities. Artists can apply individually and be paired with another artist or they may apply as a team. The two will do a residency together at the University of Lethbridge’s Gushul Studio.

We see the promotion of emerging artists as a vital role for our organization and an important contribution to the cultural richness of our community.

The Gushul is located in the scenic Crowsnest Pass in the town of Blairmore, Alberta.

It is an exceptional space which meets the requirements of the project and has the added extra incentive of allowing artists-in-residence to interact with and contribute to the vitality of the Crowsnest Pass community. Trapdoor has scheduled the Gushul Studio for July, 2012.

Trapdoor will arrange and advertise an open house during which members of the community can visit the artists in residence. In addition, we will publish a full-colour brochure featuring written and visual documentation of the project.

This work aims to understand how natural and man-made changes in environmental conditions influence these populations, and to use this information to support policy development, conservation action and sustainable resource management.
This project offers a dynamic and unusual context in which to research and make new work. The residency is expected to start in April 2012 and last 3 – 6 months.
Fee: £6,000 + an additional £2,000 presentation budget.
