Programmation régulière
Prochain appel : 1er novembre 2013
DIAGONALE invite les commissaires et les artistes en arts visuels à proposer leurs dossiers pour la programmation régulière du centre.
L’appel de dossier s’adresse à tous les artistes qu’ils soient des artistes « occasionnels » de la fibre ou des inconditionnels du domaine.
DIAGONALE regroupe des artistes du Québec et du Canada. Il a pour premier objectif la promotion et la diffusion du travail des artistes en arts visuels qui utilisent les techniques et/ou les procédés relevant du domaine des arts de la fibre. Le centre établit un dialogue avec les artistes de toutes les disciplines afin de favoriser le métissage au niveau des idées.
Art / Fibre
Il faut mieux parler de fibre et non de textile qui est une matière propre à être tissée. La fibre désigne quant à elle toute matière filamenteuse de forme allongée, d’origine naturelle ou non, qui entre dans la composition d’un corps ou d’un objet. Ses qualités tactiles ainsi que sa structure molle et flexible constituent des potentialités spécifiques indéniables.
Entrent dans la catégorie : la fibre, le fil et le tissu incluant les fibres végétales, animales, synthétiques et artificielles, les fils métalliques, les tubulures plastiques, les lanières de cuir, les languettes de bois, les bandelettes de papiers et la fourrure.
Les techniques et les procédés comprennent toutes les formes de construction et de traitement possible ; couture, tissage, haute lice, maillage, tressage, nouage, dentelle, broderie, laminage, façonnage, feutrage, taille direct, assemblage, gaufrage, feutrage, pliage, froissage, entrelacs, plissage, moulage, teinture, etc.
En prenant compte le concept fibre on doit ajouter les possibilités d’intégration de techniques et de matériaux propres à d’autres pratiques. La fibre peut être évoquée, représentée ou utilisée.  On retrouve de tout chez DIAGONALE : la peinture, la sculpture, l’installation, la vidéo, la performance …
Les artistes ou les projets d’exposition sont sélectionnés par un comité de membres et d’invités extérieurs. DIAGONALE encourage la réalisation d’activités novatrices qui élargissent la notion de concept fibre.
Le dossier doit comprendre :
•    Curriculum vitae
•    Démarche artistique
•    10 à 15 images (72 dpi) et une liste descriptive des images
•    Proposition de projet
•    Dossier de presse, s’il y a lieu
Les artistes intéressés doivent faire parvenir leur dossier PAR COURRIEL à : info [arobas] artdiagonale [point] orgwww.artdiagonale.org/appel-de-dossiers.html

Call for Proposals – ARTCITE’S 9th FAHRENHEIT FESTIVAL OF FIRE SCULPTURE

Deadline for proposals only: Midnight, July 5, 2013

Event date: Saturday, September 28, 2013; rain date: Sunday, September 29, 2013

Guest Jurors: Zeke Moores and Rod Strickland, Professors of Sculpture, University of Windsor School for Arts & Creative Innovation (SACI)

Artcite Inc., Windsor’s only registered charitable, non-profit Artist-Run Centre for the Contemporary Arts, invites proposals from individual artists, artist-teams and collectives for large-scale works to be exhibited–and burned–at Artcite’s 9th Fahrenheit Festival of Fire Sculpture–Canada’s first–and still only–international fire sculpting festival.

Since 2008, this popular, public fundraising event has been held on open parklands at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Centre in the Town of LaSalle, Ontario (a bedroom community 10 minutes from Windsor and Detroit, MI), and has attracted enthusiastic, all-ages audiences of 2200+ from across Southeastern Ontario and Michigan.

« Fire sculpture » harnesses the primal power of fire as a creative, performative act. The beauty of this powerful art form is not limited to the creation of a beautiful object (what is traditionally considered the « art »), but is rather focused on how each unique sculpture burns. Skilled fire artists are able to use a minimum of means to control and shape the tempo, pace and burning pattern of the fire, so that the sculpture doesn’t resemble, or burn, like a bonfire. The public, night-time spectacle of the Fahrenheit « burn » is fleeting, kinetic and encompasses a singular moment that cannot be restaged.

« What excites me about Fahrenheit is the challenge of working with primitive materials to make spectacular art that is just ‘here for the moment.’ It’s fascinating to just let the elements work with the materials, and see the expected and unexpected things that happen in each sculpture. » — Ed Janzen, 2008 Fahrenheit Festival participating artist

For purposes of the 2013 Fahrenheit Festival, « Fire Sculptures » are large-scale (minimum, approximately 10’w x 10’d x 10′-20’+ h), outdoor works constructed primarily of natural materials (wood, straw, rope, etc. with wire and metal hardware as fasteners, and metal plates, mud etc. as counterbalances, etc.) that burn for approximately 10 minutes. Works with a « surprise » kinetic element are especially encouraged. Chemical accelerants and toxic materials will not be allowed. Please note that Fest site may not be as depicted in attached photos (pond location may not be available).

Participating artists and artist-teams will receive basic sculpture construction materials (wood, straw, baling wire), an artist’s fee (TBA, per sculpture) and unedited video and photo documentation of the event. Out-of-town artists and artist-teams will be reimbursed for receipted travel expenses (to a max. of $250 per artist and/or team), and will receive accommodation assistance. Members of the Control.Burn Collective (Artcite’s Fahrenheit 2013 artist-organizing committee) will be available to offer advice and assistance prior to proposal submission and sculpture construction to first-time fire sculpting artists and teams. For more information about this unique art form and full Fahrenheit proposal details and requirements, contact Fahrenheit Committee Head Steve Daigle at: 519-253-5510 or daigle [arobas] mnsi [point] net or Artcite Inc. at: 519-977-6564 or info [arobas] artcite [point] ca

Deadline for proposals is midnight, Friday, July 5, 2013; actual sculptures must be completed on-site for presentation and the « big burn » on Saturday evening, September 28, 2013.

ARTSPACE is dedicated to presenting work from contemporary artists working in a variety of disciplines. We strive to present art that reflects and promotes the diversity of cultural and political perspectives that shape contemporary art practices. Submissions from emerging, mid-career and senior artists whose works are alternative, experimental and/or critically engaged are welcome. ARTSPACE receives a high volume of submissions.

With multiple exhibition spaces available, we invite artists to apply in the following streams:

NEW MEDIA: we are seeking proposals for Media installations. Please note all technical requirements in proposals.

PERFORMANCE/RESIDENCY: We are seeking proposals for original performance pieces. We are also interested in works that are participatory in nature and fall under the category of relational aesthetics. In addition, we invite artists to consider doing workshops and lectures during their stay in an effort to engage local artists in research and production. Duration of residency may vary depending on the nature of work and research.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

ARTSPACE asks that all proposals be submitted electronically on CD or DVD. Disks should be clearly labeled by artist name and must be readable on MAC OSX. Please save supporting documents as individually labeled pdfs (CV.pdf, Proposal.pdf, StatementandBio.pdf etc.).

Submission Deadline: JUNE 28th, 2013

Attention: Artists, Activist, Filmmakers, Community Builders, Aboriginal Historians, Poster Makers, Social Media Fanatics, Lobbyists, Documentarians, Protestors, Elders and Storytellers.

ATTESTING RESISTANCE is a curatorial project leading to an on-line exhibition with an open call for submissions. We are seeking works by visual artists/creative minds (not exclusively Aboriginal people) that respond to Aboriginal resistance. These works likely embody the spirit of protest and embrace the solidarity against abusive and unfair government/cultural action and media interpretation. This particular curatorial conversation evolved from decades of unjust treatment of Aboriginal communities, whose resistance has been documented and represented with imbalance by mainstream news media and propaganda. This exhibition is dedicated to supporting the alternative perspectives and narratives, which may help locate and/or re-discover some of the strategies of resistance employed by Indigenous peoples (throughout history) that might otherwise go unnoticed if not documented or articulated through these symbolic artworks.

This on-line exhibition is being supported and hosted by the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective (http://www.aboriginalcuratorialcollective.org).  As such, all work will be mediated through an online exhibition website gallery, freely accessible to the vast public. We are encouraging both unconventional and traditional artworks for submission, however the final presentation of the artworks will be digital (e.g. Digital 2D works, photography, digital files, digital 3D, video), or the documentation of physical works that will be used as the exhibition media (e.g. a digital photograph of a sculpture or performance). We will not accept physical hard copies of any kind.  We will also not be accepting proposals of incomplete works; we ask that all submitted works be documented in their finished form by the submission deadline date. There is no limit on the number of submissions given by individual artists; however, we hope that artists will submit works they feel best relate to the theme of the exhibition.

Selected artists will receive modest artist fees for their participation that will be determined shortly after all artists have been selected. Only selected participants will be notified, which will occur approximately three weeks after the submission deadline. With the curatorial frame of this project, the intention is to incorporate a diverse range of artworks that can span generations, histories, actions, intentions, and disciplines, and will hopefully include many different approaches/perspectives to making art (didactic, lyrical, experimental, and conceptual). Ultimately, the project will rest on the overall theme of  ‘attesting resistance’ to converge the works together.

Email and/or Dropbox (larger files) submissions to: accresistance [arobas] gmail [point] com

All submission should include the following:
Your Name:
Contact information:
Title of work:
Year of completion:
Material form:

If selected, images will be published online in the exhibition gallery at the standard screen resolution of 72 dpi, therefore your image submission do not need to exceed this spec.

Videos: Include video files through a hyper-link to a personal website, VIMEO, or Youtube, elsewise you can send an .mpeg 4 or .avi file not exceeding 15 MB via drop box. If possible videos exceeding 5 minutes should provide a clip or trailer not exceeding 5 minutes along with the full-length format.

Data-based Work (including audio files): files should not exceed 15 MB. If your file exceeds 15 MB, we ask that you host the files on a separate server at your own expense with details on how to gain access. If your files require special technical capabilities please outline all the steps necessary to access the work.

All additional files should be clearly labelled with the title of the work and your last name
(e.g. ARTWORK1_SMITH.jpeg)

Open Call for Proposals

Deadline: Monday 2 September 2013

www.opencall.eva.ie

Curated by Bassam El Baroni

eva International, Ireland’s biennial of contemporary art, is pleased to launch the international open call for proposals for the 2014 edition, curated by Bassam El Baroni. Applications are invited from individual artists or groups in any medium and can be for the presentation of existing works or production of new projects. The online application process is now open and closes at 5pm on Monday 2 September 2013. Please see opencall.eva.ie or contact info [arobas] eva [point] ie for further information.

Commenting on the curatorial approach for eva International 2014, El Baroni said:
“I would like the 36th eva International 2014 to be reflective of the many complex questions that the current heightened global political moment raises. Are we witnessing the continuing dominance of old political narratives? While these old narratives may be slowly showing signs of cracking, what are the obstacles facing the emergence of new narratives? Rather than being any kind of curatorial concept, this statement is intended solely as a hint at a direction that will evolve and nuance as the project develops. »
Founded in 1977, eva International is an artist-centred biennial of contemporary art that works with acclaimed guest curators to present exhibitions and events across the city of Limerick, Ireland. eva International 2014 is the 36th edition and will be part of Limerick City of Culture 2014 celebrations. Artists’ projects will be selected through an international open call for proposals and exhibitions will take place in both gallery and non-gallery spaces. A programme of talks, workshops and events will accompany the biennial and the open call for proposals includes opportunities for artists’ projects that engage with the city and its communities. 

eva International 2012 – After the Future, curated by Annie Fletcher, was highlighted as one of the top exhibitions in both Ireland and the UK during 2012. A catalogue with artists’ profiles, documentation, essays, interviews and transcripts from After the Future is available through www.eva.ie.

About Bassam El Baroni
Bassam El Baroni is a curator and art critic based in Alexandria, Egypt. In 2005 he co-founded the non-profit art space Alexandria Contemporary Arts Forum (ACAF), and was its Director until December 2012. In 2010, he was co-curator of Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain, and is currently a PhD researcher in the Curatorial/Knowledge program at Goldsmiths, University of London. El Baroni is currently co-curating the Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF, with Anne Szefer Karlsen and Eva González-Sancho), that will open in September 2013 in Vågan, Lofoten Islands, Norway.

New Media Art Prize
\\\ AMBIENCE ///

“see like a camera, listen like a microphone, track like a satellite”
The 5th Screengrab International New Media Arts Award and associated exhibition is looking for challenging creative works by media arts practitioners working in screen based media to submit works on the theme of AMBIENCE.

ENTRY APP:
screengrab.info
2013 Award Theme

Big beautiful data is everywhere. Sounds are everywhere. Images are everywhere. Our lives are tracked relentlessly. The network sends and receives everything. We capture, post, follow, share and archive. Data becomes us.
March 2013 was the 100-year anniversary of the publication of Luigi Rusullo’s Art of Noises, and in the ensuing century the proliferation of mechanical noise has reached a critical density. Our accumulated audio-visual virtuality has been working towards a zeitgeist moment for some time. David Gelernter, researcher at Yale, has been foregrounding the concept of “life streaming” for several decades. Now it would seem, the stream has become a torrent.

Today we live to the beat of signals, alarms and alerts – a constant stream of audio-visual reminders that we live in increments of time amidst layers of metadata. We move and we are tracked by GPS, recognised by software, matched against databases, evaluated by life-tracking devices and mapped by our profiles and usernames. This new aesthetic of machine ambience is at once an embodiment of our private present selves but also an ambient beautification of what lies in our wake. Photo streams, playlists, check-ins, recommendations, resolutions, bucket-lists, posts, comments and feeds all embellishing the spaces and flows of our virtual habitats. We have become the exquisite beast in the garden, with all her flair, colour and boundless expression.

Images of you and me and us are embedded into this fanfare as icons of our identity. This aural and visual accumulation of our lives has created an immense data pool that is embellished by everything we see and everything that we say on the network. This meta-ambience is cross-fading our public, commercial and private spaces like tracks on an iPod Shuffle. We remix our environment by just being present in it. We bring our own signal noise with us wherever we go. We are fast becoming the sample bank of a dense ambient mix of images and sound.

But what does this look like? With what forms of expression is this data being exposed? How do we construct our own ambient worlds? How is Big Data constructing it for us? What do we show and what do we choose to conceal and what is beyond our control? Where does our ambience end and where do that of others begin? How do our rituals of culture, work and family inform who we are through the ambient streams we leave in our wake?

The 5th International Screengrab New Media Arts Award seeks works that explore the theme of ambience – personal, virtual and commercial – and all its private, political and social connotations. Creators, imagineers and explorers of big data, augmented reality, data aesthetics, generative art, audio/visual collage and interactive environments are encouraged to submit works that address the theme of ambience.

The Call Out
SCREENGRAB is now entering its fifth year with an international call out for the AUS$5000 New Media Arts Prize and the companion exhibition in July/August 2013 for short listed applicants. We invite digital practitioners working in screen based media to submit works on the theme of AMBIENCE.
All forms of screen based media are encouraged including multi-channel video, digital illustration, audio sculpture, photography, generative media, 2D & 3D animation.
Existing works and those specifically designed for the award must address the theme of AMBIENCE to be eligible for the New Media Arts award.

Prize Money: AUS $5000
Artefact deadline: July 1
Exhibition Opening & Award announcement : July 26

Atelier Topaz – résidence 
Opasatika, Ontario, Canada
Le lieu
Situés au cœur de la forêt boréale, les Ateliers Topaz sont à la fois un lieu de retraite et un centre de création pour artistes, toutes disciplines confondues. L’endroit parfait pour la réflexion, l’évasion. Le groupement d’édifices fait 900 mètres carrés et repose sur 14 hectares face à la route Transcanadienne. Il donne sur un étang de deux hectares. Topaz c’est la « Route 66 » dans le nord de l’Ontario. L’endroit, modeste et nostalgique, rappelle aussi les grandes épopées de la colonisation francophone de l’Ontario. Ces studios de création ou cette résidence d’artistes, endroit idéal pour les arts visuels, sont situés au centre du Canada, à mi-chemin entre l’Atlantique et le Pacifique, là où les étoiles deviennent les topazes de la nuit.
Ce qu’on offre
D’abord l’espace et, l’espace de travail déterminés selon les besoins de l’artiste. Les espaces polyvalents permettent d’y faire de la peinture, de la sculpture, de l’installation, etc. L’atelier de menuiserie, le Bar à clou, est équipé des outils de base. Un magasin d’objets trouvés est disponible autant pour l’inspiration que pour l’utilisation dans une œuvre. Le peintre apporte ses pinceaux, le musicien son instrument et l’écrivain son ordi.

Les personnes qui séjournent aux Ateliers Topaz jouissent de l’accès à la cuisine et sont responsables de préparer leurs repas. Toutefois Laurent peut aussi leur cuisiner de petits plats typiquement canadiens-français aux besoins ou aux désirs. 

Topaz possède deux suites avec lit double et une chambre avec lit simple. Chacune possède sa salle de toilette avec douche. Ces installations évoquent admirablement le style des années 1960. 

Pour la baignade, le Lac des Cœurs se situe à deux kilomètres à l’est. Pour le canotage ou la pèche, la rivière Opasatika est deux kilomètres à l’ouest. Pour se déplacer, il y a de vieux vélos ou la marche. Pour un frais très raisonnable, votre hôte peut aussi vous conduire ou organiser un déplacement vers Kapuskasing à l’est ou vers Hearst à l’ouest. 

Les matériaux d’artistes ne sont pas disponibles dans la région. Il est donc important de faire vos achats avant votre séjour, à moins que vous travailliez avec des matériaux que l’on peut se procurer dans des magasins ordinaires ou même en nature.

Nouveau directeur général à la Maison des artistes


Saint-Boniface (Manitoba), le 27 juin 2013 – La Maison des artistes visuels francophones inc. (MDA) poursuit son rôle de centre artistique visuel au sein de la communauté franco-manitobaine avec un nouveau directeur général à sa barre.  « Nous avons reçu plusieurs excellentes candidatures », affirme Stéphane Dorge, président du conseil d’administration de la MDA.  « Monsieur Eric Plamondon s’est distingué par son professionnalisme et son engagement communautaire exemplaires.  Nous sommes convaincus qu’il saura contribuer pleinement à l’épanouissement de la Maison des Artistes. »

 

Fier franco-manitobain, Monsieur Plamondon est titulaire d’une maîtrise de l’Université Dalhousie et d’un baccalauréat de l’Université d’Ottawa.  Il a travaillé pour des institutions gouvernementales fédérales, provinciales ainsi qu’au sein d’organismes communautaires francophones telles que le Directorat de l’activité sportive dont il était le cofondateur et La Liberté pour laquelle il était chroniqueur. « La MDA  cherche à mettre l’accent sur la création de nouveaux partenariats et nous sommes persuadés que monsieur Plamondon possède les compétences et connaissances nécessaires pour nous aider à atteindre ce but   », poursuit M. Dorge.

 

Il importait à la MDA de se doter d’un directeur général polyvalent, ayant aussi un respect fondamental pour les artistes. En fait, M. Dorge déclare qu’il est « heureux que  M. Plamondon soit actif dans la communauté artistique, entre autres, comme comédien.  Cette compréhension intrinsèque de l’art visuel et de l’art actuel lui permettra de renforcer les liens entre la MDA et la communauté artistique.  »

 

Le nouveau directeur général entrera en fonction à la fin du mois de juillet et se joindra au directeur artistique, Eric Lesage. « Je prévois une transition fluide grâce à la continuité qu’apportera M.  Lesage et à la diversité de l’expertise du conseil d’administration », ajoute le nouveau directeur général, Eric Plamondon. « Mais surtout, je prévois une transition harmonieuse, car nous représentons des artistes visuels très talentueux avec qui beaucoup sera possible. »

 

Située dans l’ancien hôtel de ville de Saint-Boniface, la MDA incorpore une galerie d’art contemporain, une galerie communautaire et un jardin de sculptures contemporain. Elle agit comme centre d’artistes œuvrant avec la communauté francophone du Manitoba, en plus de soutenir la diffusion d’œuvres dans toutes les disciplines d’art visuelles par des expositions, des échanges, des ateliers, des résidences d’artistes et la création et promotion de l’art publique dans le Jardin de sculptures.
