Nous invitons les artistes en art actuel à explorer les zones sensibles du territoire humain et géographique dans le contexte du programme de résidence du 3e impérial centre d’essai en art actuel.

Le prochain cycle de programmations du 3e impérial aborde la posture de l’artiste sous l’angle de l’étrangeté et du pouvoir catalyseur de l’art : invention du quotidien, habileté à créer des protocoles ludiques, inédits, à circuler dans des  réseaux inexplorés. C’est à partir de ces prémices de création que nous invitons les artistes en art actuel à venir explorer les zones sensibles du territoire humain et géographique dans le contexte d’une résidence de cinq semaines.

Tout comme les dernières années, les
artistes sélectionnés recevront un cachet de 500

d’accueillir les artistes des disciplines
touchant les arts visuels.
La Galerie d’art du Théâtre Capitol se trouve
dans la partie avant du Foyer Irving du centre
des arts de la scène et est devenue une aire
d’exposition importante. Grâce aux nombreux
spectateurs qui assistent aux spectacles et aux
divers événements du Théâtre Capitol, les
expositions bénéficient d’une excellente visibilité.
Un comité des arts visuels coordonne la sélection
des artistes. Les expositions durent environ
deux mois, selon les autres activités prévues
au théâtre. Les artistes intéressés à devenir
exposant à la Galerie d’art du Théâtre Capitol
doivent remplir le formulaire de demande
d’exposition et le remettre au Théâtre Capitol,
avec le portfolio, avant le 31 mai prochain.
Le portfolio comprend une courte biographie
de l’artiste, y compris une liste des expositions
antérieures et des expositions futures confirmées,
une description de l’exposition proposée
et un minimum de dix diapositives ou photos de
ses oeuvres récentes avec une liste où figurent le
titre des oeuvres, la technique utilisée, la taille
des oeuvres et la date de réalisation.
Pour plus d’information ou pour vous procurer
le formulaire de demande, visitez le site Web
du Théâtre Capitol au www.capitol.nb.ca et

Voix Visuelle
Appel de dossiers  /  L’inconscient de l’œil par le sténopé numérique
APPEL AUX ARTISTES DE TOUT LE PAYS QUI SE SERVENT DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE
DANS LEUR PROCESSUS CRÉATIF EN ART ACTUEL.
Double défi:
1- Montrer l’invisible en se servant de la photographie
2- Utiliser un processus ancien, le sténopé, adapté à la technologie
moderne, un appareil numérique à objectif interchangeable. (Il n’y a
qu’à enlever l’objectif et le remplacer par un carton noir ou le
bouchon, percé d’un petit trou. Le temps -de pose- fera le reste!)
Laissez entrer un peu de vie dans l’image par le sténopé. Quand la
profondeur de champ est augmentée par la longueur de temps
d’exposition, la magie peut mieux opérer. Seule la photographie peut
révéler l’inconscient de l’œil. Vous prenez une photo et puis, c’est
la photo qui vous prend. Cette valeur ajoutée que Barthes nommait
punctum, c’est en négligeant un instant la raison qu’elle peut surgir.
Le hasard s’approche quand le contrôle nous échappe…
André Paquin, commissaire de l’exposition qui sera présentée au Centre
d’artistes Voix Visuelle en septembre 2011.
www.voixvisuelle.ca
Date de tombée: Le mercredi 1er juin 2011
Toute présentation de dossier doit être uniquement proposée sur disque
CD ou DVD.  Inclure une enveloppe de retour pré-affranchie pour qu’on
vous retourne votre disque.
N’envoyez aucun document sur papier.
Les demandes doivent inclure :
-Curriculum vitae (maximum 3 pages)
-Un texte de démarche artistique et/ou votre intention de projet (150 mots)
-Liste détaillée de la documentation visuelle (numéros, titres et annotations)
-Maximum 20 images numériques (en format JPEG d’environ 5”x7” @ 300 ppp)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: OIL

Presented by EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society

Curated by Daniel Dugas

Deadline: June 1, 2011 @ 4:30PM (MST)

Oil. It fuels our cars, it furnishes our homes, it feeds our debates, our wars. Oil, almost magic, which can be transformed into a multitude of products, toys, fertilizers, carpets, shampoo, insulation, golf balls, credit cards, lipsticks, plastic bags, bottles. A strange philosophers’ stone giving immortality to pop bottles and plastic forks.
How are we going to negotiate our dependency and oil addiction with our environmental concerns? Who defines the Industry practices? How can the individual contribute to the emergence of solutions? What is the role of the artist, writer, poet?
OIL is looking for slick short videos to fuel the discussion! Daniel Dugas will curate the program, through a call of submissions that is open to local, national and international artists. We are looking for videos that address and explore the issues and relationships we have with oil, either politically and/or poetically. The program will be screened on July 12, 2011, which is the one-year anniversary of the capping of the BP well in the Gulf of New Mexico.

To submit your short film/video:
– Must be under 5 min.
– Must be submitted on either data DVD as a .mov file or Mini DV, if sending by mail.
– A .mov file can be uploaded onto our FTP server (Please contact programming [arobas] emmedia [point] ca for more details)

Please note:
– Submissions will not be returned unless accompanied by a SASE.
– Artists will be contacted if selected. Please no phone calls.

The Festival prioritizes works that balance unique content, cultural and social relevance, and a creative approach to form, characterized by innovative expression, distinctive style, and personal vision. Emerging and Student artists are encouraged to submit their work. Priority is given to works that have not yet been broadcast in Canada or on the Internet. International and Canadian premiere status is also a consideration. News reports, extended reportage, television magazine formats, and information programming or segments (such as PSAs) are not eligible (see website for a complete listing of rules and guidelines).

CALL FOR PAPERS/APPEL À COMMUNICATIONS
2011 UAAC Conference / Congrès AAUC 2011
Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
October 27-29 octobre
POST-DISCIPLINARITY AND SLOPPY CRAFT – A CRITICAL ENGAGEMENT
Is “sloppy craft” fine art or hopeless amateurism? Does post-disciplinarity exist “in the ruins of outmoded disciplinary structures” – mediating between nostalgia for disciplinary boundaries and excitement at the intellectual freedom their demise might offer – or could interdisciplinarity still offer much to illuminate issues attached to “sloppy craft”? And importantly, what are the historical antecedents to this recent turn in craft discourse? This panel seeks to critically assess the value of the post-disciplinary method proposed as a way forward for the making of craft and its discourse (advocated most prominently by craft theorist Glenn Adamson).
We invite speakers to consider ways the following terms/concepts might interact with “sloppy craft” and the post-disciplinarity advocated for it: DIY, amateur, traditional, conceptual art, intentionality, materiality, function, community, skilful, historical, design. Speakers may also consider the advantages of an interdisciplinary approach to these terms/concepts in their application to “sloppy craft.”

City of Toronto
Call to Artists for Expression of Interest (EOI)
Permanent Public Art Work
Public Art at Dawes Road and Victoria Park 

Toronto Cultural Services works with staff across City of Toronto divisions and agencies, boards and commissions to identify exciting new opportunities for commissioning innovative contemporary artworks in the City’s public spaces.
Transportation Services, Public Realm, Cycling Infrastructure, Technical Services, City Planning Urban Design, and Cultural Services have been working together with Councillor Janet Davis and the local community to coordinate a number of improvements to Dawes Road, including the relocation of the intersection of Dawes Road and Victoria Park Avenue.   The proposed changes will address the safety concerns at Ferris Road and improve the pedestrian environment, increase the available green space and provide an opportunity for civic improvements and public art.
Dawes Road has a rich history as one of the busiest roads in this section of Ontario in the nineteenth century providing farmers from developing Scarborough with the ability to get their produce, livestock and lumber to market in York in a fast and effective manner. Dawes Road does not follow a typical grid pattern along surveyed lots and there is some suggestion that this variation is due to the fact that its origin is based in an early native trail.
Cultural Services views the unique context and parameter of this site as an opportunity to commission an artist or artist team to create a site specific public art work. The artist or artist team will also be requested to work with a recognized experienced landscape architect of their choice to implement an integrated art and landscape concept for this project. The two indicated locations for public art provide an opportunity for a visual connection linking the north and south sites with a gateway work that enhances the identity of this neighborhood.
The art production budget for this project including all fees, materials, technologies, fabrication, landscaping and installation costs is $400,000. 

For this first stage of the competition, Toronto Cultural Services is inviting local and national artists or artist teams along with their chosen landscaper to respond to this Expression of Interest (EOI) by submitting the following:
•    Resume(s) in text form (including landscape architect or designer)
•    Artist(s) statement in text form outlining interest in the project and experience
•    6 to 8 digital images of recent, relevant work in the following format:
jpg images on a PC compatible CD-R
each maximum of 1024 x 768 pixels 
each resolution of 72 dpi
each maximum of 1 MB
each RGB, sRGB or grayscale colour mode files only (no CMYK)
caption each with number, your name and title of work
•    An “Image Information” sheet, that details per image: number, artist(s) name, title, date, medium, and dimensions. Please be sure the number on the list matches the number of the jpeg image.
•    Be sure to label the CD-R with your name.
•    If desired, include a stamped, self-addressed envelope for return of submission material.

Submissions by email are not accepted.

Submissions must be received by Friday, 6 May 2011 at 4:00 p.m. via mail or
hand-delivered to:

The Centre for Social Innovation 
215 Spadina Avenue, Suite 414
Toronto, ON, M5T 2C7
Attention: Andrew Davies
E-mail: adavies [arobas] andrewdaviesdesign [point] com
Please note: Artists are NOT asked to submit proposals at this first stage of the competition.

A short list of 3 to 5 artists will be selected during this first stage. For the second stage of the competition each artist will be paid a fee to develop a project proposal based on a Terms of Reference document provided to him or her by Toronto Cultural Services. A public open house exhibition of the short listed designs and final design selection will be held at a date and place to be announced.

The public art concept for the Dawes Road and Victoria Park project will be selected through a two stage open competition by a specially convened independent Selection Committee made up of practicing arts professionals and community representatives.

The Dawes Road and Victoria Park project is administered by the Public Art Office of Cultural Services, City of Toronto with assistance from the public art consultant Andrew Davies.

Art in Odd Places (New York, NY): Call to Public Artists, Deadline May 8

Art in Odd Places 2011, New York – call for submissions

Deadline: 8 May 2011

Art in Odd Places (AIOP) invites artists working across disciplines to propose projects for its seventh installment. Taking place from October 1 to 10, 2011, along 14th Street from Avenue C to the Hudson River in New York City, they encourage proposals that explore this location’s rich history, configuration, and heterogeneous communities. The theme for the upcoming edition of AiOP is RITUAL including Ceremony, Habituation, Myth, Obsession, Superstition, Liturgy, and it will be informed by propositions on the sacred and profane in everyday actions of people in public space.

AIOP 2011: RITUAL offers artists the opportunity to make art outside formal spaces by reconfiguring their artistic practice as public actions or urban interventions without the confinement of a gallery or museum space. AiOP 2011: RITUAL wants to engage passers-by, providing them with a new perspective of an otherwise familiar environment through site-specific installations, social and spatial interventions, video and audio projects, performance, new media, and other inventive practices. In addressing the distinct manifestations of ritual, the festival aims to broaden the public’s outlook on art, city dwelling, and social conventions.

About HMK
HMK {Hotel Mariakapel} is an artist-run residency and project space in Hoorn, a 15th century town by the IJsselmeer, just 40 km north of Amsterdam. In the old center of the town, in a medieval orphanage with a semi public inner garden and
Maria Chapel, HMK receives artists from all over the world.
The programme involves artists and curators working in a wide range of media, focusing on installation and context based work, video and performance art. Projects are developed both in public space and in the exhibition space. In 2011 HMK is kindly supported by several local and national foundations.
We offer:
Residencies
For 2012 we have applications open for four group residencies for artists.
We are looking for projects that make full use of the unique opportunities offered. The longer stay at HMK leads to intensive (international) collaboration while developing new individual/group work for an exhibition or other presentation in and/or around the chapel. We are also keen on projects that do not only focus on art itself but that, in content or practice, are able to step outside the borders of the art-context.
HMK {Hotel MariaKapel} focuses mainly on collaborations and group-projects (between 3 and 6 artists); the nature of the collaboration is important to us. Preferably you work with artists or others with whom you haven’t (extensively) worked with before.
Proposals must focus mainly on content of the work and the process of working resulting in a presentation in our chapel/exhibition space, please do not propose to exhibit pre-existing work.
Projects must have a strong international component (i.e. cooperation with artists from different countries)
Research Residencies
For 2012 we have applications open for two research residencies.
Artist(s) with a special interest in public art and or artistic interventions in public space.
Designer(s) who work on their own initiative (without a commision of a third party) with a special interest in pushing the boundaries of function and/or the relation between art and design.
For both Research Residencies we are looking for individuals or duo’s (no groups) who seek to spend time on research and development of their work through focusing on a self chosen research topic. We are, again, keen on projects that do not only focus on it’s own topic or medium but that, in content or practice, are able to step outside the borders of their own context.

La CCMT ne dispose donc plus d’accueil dédié à l’accueil en résidences. Cependant, les élus souhaitent poursuivre leur politique d’accueil en résidences  et d’aide à la création sur ce territoire. C’est pourquoi, il est question de s’engager dans l’accueil de résidences courtes en lien avec les prestataires d’hébergements du territoire sur le horssaison et autour de disciplines qui ne nécessitent pas forcément de lieu dédié.
Le projet

La CCMT met à disposition d’un artiste ou d’un groupe d’artistes les moyens nécessaires pour concevoir, écrire, achever, produire une oeuvre nouvelle ou pour préparer et conduire un travail original.

Les objectifs

- Développer les habitudes culturelles de la population,
- Dynamiser le territoire,
- Favoriser des liens culturels de proximité.

Plusieurs pistes de travail peuvent être envisagées :

Disciplines (en lien avec les conditions d’accueil)

- Auteur / Illustrateur,
- Photographe,
- Plasticien,
- Peintre,…

Résidence d’artistes 2012, domaine d’Abbadia – Appel à candidatures
Contexte général
«NEKaTOENEa » est une ancienne ferme rénovée permettant depuis 1987 d’accueillir des artistes et des scientifiques en résidence, au cœur du Domaine d’Abbadia, à Hendaye.
Propriété du Conservatoire du littoral, site naturel protégé, site classé, le Domaine d’Abbadia offre une diversité de milieux naturels (littoral, prairies, forêt, verger, patrimoine bâti…) et de thèmes d’investigations en lien avec les sciences (géologie, faune, flore, environnement…).
De par sa situation géographique, au Pays Basque, entre France et Espagne, à la limite entre continent terrestre et espace océanique, la résidence est influencée par les notions de frontières (interétatiques, linguistiques, géographiques).

La résidence d’Artiste « NEKaTOENEa », reçoit le soutien des partenaires suivants :
Conservatoire du littoral ; DRAC Aquitaine ; Conseil Régional d’Aquitaine ; Conseil Général des Pyrénées Atlantiques, Mairie d’Hendaye.
Porteur du programme
C’est le CPIE LITTORAL BASQUE (www.cpie-littoral-basque.eu) qui est chargé de gérer et d’animer la résidence d’artistes du Domaine d’Abbadia.

Née en 1986, l’association « Abbadiako Adixkideak ~ Les Amis d’Abbadia » a été labellisée en tant que CPIE LITTORAL BASQUE en 2008. Elle est depuis lors membre de l’Union Nationale des Centres Permanents d’Initiatives pour l’Environnement (www.cpie.fr).
Le CPIE LITTORAL BASQUE est partenaire des acteurs de la protection et de la valorisation du littoral.
Basé sur le domaine d’Abbadia, propriété du Conservatoire du littoral, le CPIE agit désormais sur l’ensemble de la côte basque nord et sud.
Ses objectifs sont de contribuer au Développement Durable du Littoral Basque en proposant un regard croisé sur les territoires, l’espace maritime et le patrimoine humain en conjuguant les approches scientifiques, environnementales et artistiques.

Objectifs du programme
– Offrir à l’artiste sélectionné un temps et les moyens d’une recherche artistique nourris des ressources du territoire (humaine, environnementale, patrimoniale, scientifique…)
– Mettre en adéquation le projet de l’artiste et les sujets de réflexions des écoles d’art de la région
– Permettre au public le plus large (population, enseignants, scolaires…) de se familiariser avec l’art et la création en intégrant les processus de création et en facilitant les rencontres avec les artistes.

Faites parler la voix des arts par votre vote !
Bonjour,

Savez-vous que les campagnes électorales prévoient que des milliers de bénévoles seront sur le terrain lundi pour inciter les sympathisants à aller voter ? Nous pourrons poser des questions aux candidats et présenter des plateformes jusqu’à épuisement… mais tout cela ne servira à rien si nous n’allons pas voter.
« Lors des dernières élections, plus de 40 % des électeurs ne se sont pas donné la peine d’exprimer leur opinion par les urnes. Avec 58 %, l’année 2008 a marqué le taux de participation le plus bas de notre histoire parlementaire. » – The Arts Policy Diaries: Electing Another Illegitimate Government (blogue de Shannon Litzenberger)

Après un démarrage de campagne plutôt lent, le mouvement s’est accéléré. La participation au vote par anticipation a dépassé de 35 % celle de 2008. Renseignez-vous pour savoir où voter, à quelle circonscription vous appartenez, qui sont vos candidats, etc., sur le site Web d’Élections Canada.
•    Assurez-vous de voter.
•    Rappelez également à vos collègues de le faire.
•    Utilisez l’avatar « J’ai voté » pour répandre la fièvre du vote à travers vos réseaux sociaux !

Comment puis-je voter ?
Le Service d’information à l’électeur répond aux questions sur votre circonscription.
Pour voter, vous devez prouver votre identité et votre adresse.
Mon employeur doit-il m’accorder du temps pour aller voter?
D’après la Loi électorale du Canada, tout électeur admissible doit disposer de trois heures consécutives pour exercer son droit de vote le jour de l’élection. Si vous ne disposez pas de trois heures consécutives à cause de votre horaire de travail, votre employeur doit vous accorder des heures en conséquence.
Votre employeur a le droit de décider du moment où il vous accordera des heures. Il est interdit à l’employeur de faire des déductions sur le salaire d’un employé qui se voit accorder des heures de travail pour aller voter selon la Loi électorale du Canada, ou de lui imposer une pénalité. L’employé doit être rémunéré comme s’il avait continué à travailler pendant les heures qui lui ont été accordées pour aller voter.

Mise en ligne des actes de colloque de la Conférence Res Artis 2010
Le Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec est heureux d’annoncer la mise en ligne des actes de colloque de la Conférence Res Artis 2010, qui s’est tenue à Montréal, du 6 au 10 octobre dernier.

Le site Internet du colloque a été remodelé pour y accueillir l’archivage vidéo complet de l’événement. Les conférences dans leur langue d’origine y sont toutes, ainsi que les traductions vers le français et l’espagnol. Ce site Internet est une mémoire collective démocratique de la conférence. C’est l’occasion d’entendre, de voir ou de revoir ces penseurs et artisans de la résidence d’artistes. 

Les actes de colloque numériques de la Conférence Res Aris 2010 sont le fruit d’un travail d’équipe. Les enregistrements vidéos on été fait par Monique Moumblow et Frédéric Lavoie, lequel s’est également chargé du montage. Les enregistrements audios ont été produits par la compagnie Duocom, puis montées par Mathieu Beauséjour, commissaire général de l’événement. Le site Internet a été réalisé par Patrick Vézina.

Intitulée Les Amériques : Pratiques artistiques indépendantes à l’ère de la mondialisation, la Conférence Res Artis 2010 a réuni 252 participants en provenance du Québec (111), du Canada (64) et de plusieurs autres pays (77), incluant les Pays-Bas, la Finlande, le Mexique, la Corée, le Japon, l’Australie, etc. Pendant trois jours, les délégués et les intervenants se sont penchés sur les questions liées aux résidences d’artistes et à l’autogestion artistique – deux phénomènes en expansion partout dans le monde et particulièrement au Québec. 

Le RCAAQ remercie l’ensemble des conférenciers, des participants et des partenaires de l’événement. Parmi ces partenaires, le RCAAQ tient aujourd’hui à remercier particulièrement le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, qui a contribué financièrement à la production de ces actes de colloque numériques, ainsi que Patrimoine Canadien, pour son support à la traduction simultanée des conférences.

La tenue de la Conférence Res Artis 2010 à Montréal est une initiative du Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec. Le RCAAQ est le point de rencontre d’un réseau de soixante-et-onze centres d’artistes et organismes culturels répartis sur l’ensemble du territoire québécois. Le Réseau Art Actuel, une initiative du RCAAQ, est un repère Internet de l’actualité artistique québécoise. À l’aube de ses 25 ans, le Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec est une référence en art actuel.
