APPEL DE DOSSIERS
D’ARTISTES ACADIENS DE L’ATLANTIQUE

La Galerie d’art Louise et Reuben-Cohen de l’Université de Moncton prépare
une exposition de groupe qui sera présentée à la galerie du Faouëdic, à
Lorient, du 3 au 12 août 2012 dans le cadre de l’Année de l’Acadie au 42e
Festival Interceltique de Lorient.

Le Festival Interceltique de Lorient (FIL) est un rassemblement international annuel de
créateurs, de représentants de la société civile et d’artistes des pays celtes. Chaque
année, un pays ou une région (Irlande, Écosse, Bretagne, Pays de Galles, Ile de Man,
Cornouailles, Australie, Galice, Asturies, Acadie) est mis à l’honneur comme cela fut le cas
pour l’Acadie en 2004 et à nouveau cette année. Le FIL est l’une des manifestations les
plus importantes d’Europe, avec un concept unique où se mêlent cultures régionales et
réseaux internationaux, et l’un des plus médiatisés de France. Annuellement, plus de 5000
artistes du monde entier convergent vers Lorient, en Bretagne, au mois d’août pour
participer à cet événement social d’envergure, tandis qu’environ 800 000 festivaliers
envahissent les rues pendant les dix jours que dure le festival.

En raison de considérations quant au transport, une attention
particulière sera portée aux projets vidéos et aux oeuvres nonencadrées
sur papier ou tissu.

Veuillez soumettre les documents suivants avant le 14 mai 2012:
Jusqu’a 20 images numérisées (en format JPEG) de votre travail incluant le projet proposé

Call for Submissions I Deadline for Submissions: May 25, 2012
Sincerely Yours
Propeller 15th Annual Curated Exhibition
Curated by: John Kissick
June 20 – July 1, 2012
« The kernel, the soul—let us go further and say the substance,
the bulk, the actual valuable material of all human utterances—is plagiarism. » – Jonathan Lethem
« I fake it so real, that I’m beyond fake. » – Courtney Love
Ever wondered what an authentic experience felt like? You know—a feeling which you were reasonably sure was yours’ and yours’ alone; a gesture that didn’t inevitably collapse into a set of clichés; having an idea that didn’t already have a citation index attached to it; the premise that you, your thoughts and your actions were in any meaningful way unique? Yeah… me too. I keep thinking I must have had an authentic feeling at some point in my past—but not lately.
For the most part, I — like most artists I know — have come to an uneasy peace about the whole thing, figuring that « mediation is me, » and besides, authenticity is so twentieth-century anyway. But I have been haunted by a troubling aspect of this equation: if authenticity is now accepted in most quarters as a cultural construct rather that an existential truth, then how do we recognize sincerity anymore? Is sincerity, like its corollary authenticity, contingent on a world outside ourselves? And if so what does it all mean for individuals who produce work based on notions of intuition and self-expression?
If we claim that sincerity is a contested term in contemporary art practice, then to address these questions, we invite proposals from any perspective and in any media on the challenge of authenticity in this age.
John Kissick is trained as a painter and writer, was Chair of Painting and Critical Studies at Penn State University’s School of Visual Arts, Dean of the Faculty of Art at the Ontario College of Art & Design from 2000 to 2003 and for the last nine years, Director of the School of Fine Art and Music at the University of Guelph. Kissick’s exhibition record includes numerous solo exhibitions in Canada and abroad and his work has been included in a number of important survey exhibitions. A mid-career survey entitled John Kissick: A Nervous Decade, curated by Crystal Mowry, is currently touring Canada through 2012 and is accompanied by a major publication. John Kissick is also the author of a book, numerous catalogue essays and articles for periodicals. He is the author of Art: Context and Criticism (1992/6) and was editor of the Penn State Journal of Contemporary Criticism from 1990-1995. Two recent essays: « Elephants in the Room » for Canadian Art Magazine and « Disco and the Death Switch: Tales from Contemporary Abstraction » for Border Crossings were nominated for National Magazine Awards in 2009 and 2010. He is currently represented by Katzman Kamen Gallery, Galerie Bigue Art Contemporain, Michael Gibson Gallery and Peter Wilde Gallery in Berlin.
Deadline for Submissions: May 25, 2012
How to Apply: visit www.propellerctr.com for information on how to submit.
Propeller’s Annual Curated Exhibition has been a key part of the gallery’s programming since 1997. Over the last 15 years Propeller’s curated exhibition bridges the gap between curators and emerging/mid-career artists. Every year Propeller attracts notable guest curators from a range of cultural and professional fields, including important Canadian artists, gallerists, writers and critics to create forward thinking exhibitions to compliment the gallery’s annual programming.

PLATFORM: Call to Filmmakers & Video Artists, Deadline July 3
Call For Submissions: palimpsest

PLATFORM announces a call for submissions for film + video in response to the theme of the palimpsest. A screening will be presented in conjunction with PLATFORM’s palimpsest year and will take place in the Artspace Building.

Taking our cue from the historical phenomenon of the palimpsest as a scroll or text that is written only to be erased in order to make room for the inscription of new ideas, PLATFORM is currently in a year-long investigation into how photography and its sister media, film and video, can act as contemporary palimpsests or re-writable texts. Winnipeg is a prairie city where you can see a snowstorm coming three days away. The flatness of our location holds with the possibility that we take in not only the periphery but also the past and future. palimpsest, should not be mistaken as a sentimental elucidation about the past. It explores a rhizomatic vision of past, present, and future in various simultaneous possibilities.

Specifications:

– Film +/or video of all genres accepted / multiple submissions welcome
– Artist fees will be paid
– Emerging/Established artists are invited to submit
– 10 minutes per title maximum
– Submissions must be received on dvd
– Submission material will not be returned
– e-mail submissions with links are also accepted with « Palimpsest call » in the subject line

Key Dates:

Deadline: 03 July 2012
Notifications: 28 September 2012

Public Art Management (PAM) is the public art project manager for a major downtown Toronto development project (the “Project”). As the first stage of the public art planning process, PAM is issuing this Call To Artists (“Call”) to initiate the first of a two-stage selection process to identify artists to work with the team in the development of outstanding public art works for this landmark complex in the Southcore Financial Centre.

The artwork program intends to commission distinctive, urban scale, meritorious works by exemplary Canadian and international artists for select locations within the Project. The artworks will reflect the best of contemporary art practice with an emphasis on seeking artists working in integrated new media and interactive works. The types of opportunities may include:

• A continuous, multi component interior work for an extensive public passage through the facility, which may or may not extend to the exterior of the project

• Work that engages the interior and exterior of the building creating a dialogue between inside and outside (may included suspended elements or projections and programmed elements in specific areas)

• A large free-standing wall element which stands in close proximity to the facade of the building in the driveway/roundabout, and can be read from both the interior and exterior. this may include a lighting element either from outside or within

• Glazing and/or lighting elements for a tentatively-proposed bridge

Professional artists are invited to submit their credentials for consideration by PAM. Artists who are experienced in creating large, permanent, urban scale works for interior and exterior locations and artists who have worked in collaborative projects are invited to enter.

In Stage 1, PAM is seeking artists to submit images and resumes only.

Artists may advance in the program based on a professional review of their qualifications, profile and past work. Future commissions will be awarded following a second stage, whereby artists are interviewed and concepts may be submitted.

Development Background and Description
GWL Realty Advisors on behalf of bcIMC Realty Corporation is developing 120 Bremner Blvd. and 75 Lower Simcoe Street, a landmark office tower and hotel/convention complex west of the recently completed 18 York development in the Southcore Financial Centre of the City of Toronto. The office tower (designed by KPMB Architects) resides on Bremner Blvd. with the hotel complex (designed by Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects) situated to the west, fronting on Simcoe Street. The complex will total 700,000 square feet of office space, 450,000 square feet of hotel/convention facilities and additional ancillary retail space.

The site is located directly south of the railway corridor and is at the centre of Toronto’s Southcore Financial Centre. It is west of the Air Canada Centre and east of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. It is bordered by the commercial development of 18 York Street on the east, Bremner Blvd on the south and the railway corridor and overpass on the north. Simcoe St forms the western boundary. To the southwest of the development is the Roundhouse, home to the Steam Whistle Brewery as well as the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre. Also in the neighbourhood are the Rogers Centre, home to the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Argonauts, the CN Tower, the Telus Building, Maple Leaf Square, the soon-to-be-constructed ICE Condominiums at York Centre and new Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, in addition to numerous restaurants, pubs, tourist attractions, and shops.

In 2011, GWL Realty Advisors on behalf of bcIMC Realty Corporation completed construction of 18 York, a significant 27 storey office tower anchoring the west side of York Street and featuring a public art commission by James Carpenter (http://vimeo.com/37150715). The work was integrated into the pedestrian bridge spanning York Street, extending the PATH system (http://www.toronto.ca/path/) and creating an impressive gateway into the City of Toronto.

Construction is underway with the hotel/convention complex scheduled for completion at the end of 2014 and the office tower expected to be complete in mid 2014.

Eligibility
To be eligible for this program, applicants must be professional artists; that is, artists who are recognized as such by their peers, who have specialized training in the field, and who have a history of public exhibition (exhibitions in museums and public galleries).

Selection Process
A two-stage selection process for the commissioning of public art has been devised to ensure:

• Confirmation of ability to work within a team environment, with a generosity of spirit and patience.

• Proven track record and ability to complete projects on time and within budgets (either public art commissions or museum and gallery projects).

Professional standing by peer or art expert reference will be a major consideration.

We may also take into consideration information in the public domain about any artists’ history and work.

Stage 1: Call to Artists & Assessment

VSVSVS Summer Residency Program v2
MAY 20

We are re-pleased (as punch) to re-announce the the VSVSVS
Summer Residency Program.

The second annual residency program will be held this summer at the
VSVSVS warehouse throughout the months of July and August and will
end in an exhibition. We will work with the selected artist(s) to determine
exact dates for the residency and the subsequent exhibition. We are
looking specifically for dedicated artists that will make a valuable
contribution to our collective environment while participating in our
events and functions.

Information:
The residency is offered to any practicing artist in any media from
anywhere (groups or collectives are also considered). The length of the
residency is negotiable ranging anywhere from one week to two
months, depending on the wants and needs of the artist(s). The
residency will culminate in a show at the VSVSVS Gallery. The
residency provides 24 hour access to the 14 ft. x 20 ft semi-private
VSVSVS Gallery which will serve as studio space and, later, the
exhibition space, as well as access to the fully equipped VSVSVS
Woodshop. It is mandatory that the artist utilizes the space: you gotta
be there or we will be sad and miss you. Studio visits with other artists,
curators and VSVSVS members is strongly encouraged (we love an
open dialogue). The artist must make a concerted effort to invite other
members of the arts community to VSVSVS for studio visits and events.
The artist is asked to do a talk at VSVSVS during the residency on their
practice or on an approved theme/topic. No materials or expenses are
provided by VSVSVS except the studio space itself. VSVSVS will help
with promotion and exposure of the residency program and the
subsequent exhibition.

MOST IMPORTANT: The residency is free. But, we cannot cover
transportation or food costs.

Submission packages should include:
A letter of introduction, outlining the individual’s past artistic
experience, and other relevant information
A curriculum vitae
A brief project proposal (no more than one page)
Images of past work + PDF image list with size, title medium
(JPG, maxwidth 600 pixels, 72 dpi)
OPTIONAL: A link to an awesome YouTube video

DEADLINE: May 20/2011 before midnight

We look forward to hearing from you.

Appel à candidature : Programmes de résidences Hors les Murs de L’Institut Français

Les programmes de résidences internationales de l’Institut français soutiennent, de manière significative, la création dans toutes les disciplines, favorisant la mobilité des créateurs français en leur permettant de séjourner à l’étranger et également d’accueillir des créateurs étrangers en France.

Cette immersion leur offre la possibilité d’une mise en perspective dans une dynamique créative et contribue de manière décisive à enrichir le travail et donnent parfois naissance à des projets de collaboration inattendus.

Les résidences d’artistes, d’écrivains, de cinéastes et plus généralement de professionnels de la culture revêtent une importance capitale dans la dynamique de promotion de la diversité culturelle, placée au cœur des missions de l’Institut français.

Ces dix dernières années, plus de mille créateurs ont été accompagnés (152 en 2010) à travers des différents programmes. De grands noms de la culture contemporaine sont passés par ce dispositif.

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.

The Curtis R. Priemn Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) is dedicated to advancing research and artistic production at the intersection of technology, media and the time-based arts (media arts, video, music, dance, theater, etc.). The combination of artist-driven content with contemporary media and performing arts technology in the field of time- based arts stands in the center of the artistic research and production activities of EMPAC. EMPAC’s goal is to provide an environment to support the realization of works at any stage from inception to completion. This means that an EMPAC residency can support works which take a long period of time to develop and which may need different resources at different phases of the production. The Artists in Residence program is available to individuals, groups, ensembles or collectives to develop new approaches and new works in the time-based arts. EMPAC is also offering a Scholar and Researcher in Residence Program. Visiting scholars and researchers will participate in the formation of an intellectual community in scientific and engineering disciplines that may also engage perceptual and artistic knowledge and practice.

Studio information:
EMPAC has three acoustically isolated spaces that become dedicated to a particular artist or researcher while in residence at EMPAC. They are ideal as a study, office, work, or rehearsal space, or for contained work using computers for audio or video. Each studio has an equipment closet to house noisy electronics. There are shared kitchen facilities for the Residency Studios.
Accommodation information:
EMPAC may support residencies with accommodation in the EMPAC artist residency housing, a building with four apartments.

Un survol des compressions annoncées dans le milieu des arts et de la culture
 
Le gouvernement fédéral annonçait le 29 mars 2012 une série de compressions financières qui touchent déjà de nombreux secteurs de la société canadienne, notamment celui des arts et de la culture. Les réductions annoncées sur trois ans se chiffrent comme suit :

• 115 millions de dollars à Radio-Canada,

• 10,6 millions de dollars à Téléfilm Canada,

• 6,7 millions de dollars à l’Office national du film,

• 9,6 millions de dollars à Bibliothèque et Archives Canada

• et 46,2 millions de dollars au ministère du Patrimoine canadien.

Mentionnons le maintien du financement au Conseil des Arts du Canada.

Au moment même où nous célébrons le regard que l’Acadie porte sur elle-même et sa manière de se présenter au monde, nous nous sentons menacés comme artistes et comme citoyens. Nous constatons une série de compressions, qui s’ajoute aux nombreuses coupes réalisées dans les autres secteurs de notre société, s’apparente à une tentative de détérioration du tissu social de notre pays. D’une part, il semble qu’on saborde les agences publiques que les Canadien.ne.s se sont données pour s’exprimer et mieux se connaître d’un océan à l’autre à l’autre. D’autre part, on annonce des suppressions de postes dans la fonction publique, postes qui seront remplacés par un plus petit nombre d’emplois auxquels chacun devra postuler, créant ainsi une compétition entre collègues et ex-collègues. En rongeant le tissu social, nos décideurs s’attaquent en même temps à la solidarité entre les citoyen.ne.s et à l’essence même des valeurs dans lesquelles les Canadien.ne.s se reconnaissent.

Cette tendance à réduire épisodiquement les budgets de soutien aux arts et à la culture ne fait que fragiliser nos institutions. Après trop de compressions, il deviendra impossible d’en faire plus avec moins : la quantité et la qualité viendront à souffrir du manque de ressources. Dans ces conditions, nos institutions offriront aux citoyen.ne.s canadiens un portrait moins juste, moins à la hauteur de qui nous sommes, et ainsi elles s’acquitteront moins bien de leur mandat national.

De plus, pour gérer des budgets réduits, les agences semblent opter pour centraliser davantage les effectifs et la prise de décision. On serait même porté à croire que l’Acadie et la francophonie canadienne écopent au passage. Nous voulons donc déclarer notre solidarité avec tous ceux et celles qui sont directement touchés, et offrir notre appui aux institutions qui font face aux coupes en leur demandant de travailler avec nous à protéger notre vie collective.
