Au cours des années, la Galerie du CCFM a présenté plusieurs expositions importantes pour initier la communauté francophone du Manitoba à une culture visuelle. Le Centre culturel franco-manitobain est présentement à la recherche de soumissions pour des expositions en arts visuels, pour la période de programmation allant de janvier 2011 à juillet 2012.

APPEL DE PROJETS
Sortez vos morts

Folie/Culture, organisme qui suscite la réflexion sur des questions de santé mentale en empruntant des pistes de recherche inusitées, vous invite à repousser les limites de l’art et à soumettre vos projets les plus fous pour participer à une soirée cabaret exceptionnelle.

Vous êtes artiste professionnel ou un collectif d’artistes et vous avez des idées surprenantes, indomptables, extravagantes ? Ça pourrait nous séduire ! Par son mandat ouvert, Folie/Culture favorise la pluridisciplinarité mais est également sensible à toutes les pratiques artistiques. Nous aimons dire que nous sommes non-disciplinaires.

La proposition doit aborder la thématique Sortez vos morts. Que l’on parle de ces morts intérieures, celles qui nous habitent et qui nous étouffent complètement, ou de ces morts ex-corpus, néanmoins gênantes et que l’on aimerait bien oublier, une réflexion s’impose. S’interroger sur nous-même, sur nos cadavres sédimentés, nos cafards puants, nos douloureuses manies, c’est une invitation à la fois individuelle et collective à l’autocritique, à la franchise, à l’expiation, au nettoyage émotif; le champ d’investigation privilégié de Folie/Culture.

Pour participer, vous devez envisager une saynète — musique, performance, magie, cirque, vaudou, théâtre — qui ne dépasse pas 10 minutes.
La sélection des projets se fera en avril 2010, et ils seront présentés fin octobre, dans la ville de Québec. Folie/Culture assurera le bouclage financier pour les projets ayant été retenus. Notez que nous n’avons pas de galerie ni d’équipement de production ou de diffusion, ce qui nous oblige à travailler en étroites collaborations et à réinventer les lieux de diffusion.

Votre dossier doit contenir : un curriculum vitæ, une courte bio, une description de votre projet, votre démarche artistique, un CD ou DVD d’œuvres récentes (maximum 10). La date limite de réception des projets est le 31 mars 2010.

Faites parvenir vos projets aux soins de :
Comité de programmation
Folie/Culture
281, rue De Saint-Vallier Est
Québec (Québec) G1K 3P5

CALL FOR PROPOSALS
TORONTO SCULPTURE GARDEN
115 King Street East, Toronto Canada
Deadline: Submissions received by May 15, 2010

The Toronto Sculpture Garden has been a leader in Canada in the commissioning of contemporary sculpture since it opened in 1981. Located in an urban park in the downtown core, it serves as a testing ground for artists to explore public space and to address issues of urban context, materials and scale.

BACKGROUND:

The TSG is a non-collecting institution that is unique in its partnership between the City of Toronto, which owns and operates the site as a city park, and the Louis L. Odette Family, benefactors who created the non-profit L.L.O. Sculpture Garden Foundation which funds and administers the exhibitions. Exhibitions are selected by an Art Advisory Board working with the director, Rina Greer.

Newly commissioned work becomes property of the artist and may be offered for sale after the conclusion of the exhibition.

PROPOSALS:

The TSG’s Art Advisory Board meets three times a year to review specific proposals. Preference is given to new work that responds to the site; only in exceptional cases will existing work be considered. We are currently looking for exhibitions for 2011 and beyond.

Proposals must be received by the deadlines each year on January 15, May 15 and September 15.

Proposals require:

* Drawing(s) showing dimensions and materials and the location of the work on the site.
* Brief statement of Theme
* Budget showing critical costs including materials, installation/removal and transportation
* Annotated images sent as photographs or colour copies; jpegs or pdfs (on a CD) or DVD
* C.V.

Call for Expressions of Interest
Kitchener Public Library (Central Library)
Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
Budget: $125,000 (CDN)
Deadline: March 30, 2010 at 5 p.m.

Artists/artist teams are invited to submit professional qualifications
and a letter of interest as a first stage in the two-stage Kitchener
Public Library Public Art Competition.

Built in 1962, the Kitchener Public Library connects the community to a
world of imagination, information and discovery, though it no longer
adequately meets the needs of Kitchener’s approximately 215,000
residents. The renovation project, scheduled to begin in the fall of
2010, with an anticipated completion date of January 2013, will improve
this service to the community. Additional information about the project
is available at http://www.kpl.org/central/.

The identified location for the public art installation is the proposed
two-story atrium just inside the front entrance at Queen Street. The
atrium features abundant natural light coming from both the glazed
pop-up roof with continuous glazing and from windows located above the
Queen Street entrance. The proposed floor finish is a low luster stone.
The railings surrounding the atrium at the upper floor will all be clear
glass. The artist may consider suspending art work from the roof or
truss, and/or fastening it to the guard rail. Given the nature of the
library environment, works powered by or incorporating motors are not
acceptable.

NOTE: This competition is open to professional artists/artist teams with
experience in creating site responsive permanently installed public art
projects.

SOCIAL PROPAGANDA MIXING MACHINE (VIVO 2010: Safe Assembly)

1. 2010 RIGHT TO THE CITY VIDEO PROJECT

Cities, through their selective processes of urbanization, constantly
reinvent concepts and positions which attack the very idea of ‘the right to
the city.’

While some would say that a ‘right to the city’ is merely the assertion of
human rights in the urban domain, it is also a slogan, a repositioning of
human rights as an agenda, a clarion call to reorient who participates in
decision-making.

>From Henri Lefebvre’s use of the term to its contemporary proliferation as
a civil society challenge to neo-liberal urban policymaking, the ‘right to
the city’ is not just about ensuring access to the resources of the city,
but also about democratizing the opportunities to remake the city.

As with other global hallmark events, the 2010 Olympics tend to expedite
development paths in a city and quicken the urbanization processes which
are already underway.

The Social Propaganda Mixing Machine is inviting video artists, social
activists to produce artistic propaganda from their own unique vantage
point by considering ‘the right to the city’ as a conceptual point of
departure – and a means to consider Vancouver as a subject in this specific
moment.

A few things to consider:

-it has to be a film or video work
-it has to be less than 10 minutes
-it has to be made by March 31st, 2010
-there is limited gear available at VIVO, so people should have access to
their own equipment.
-we have no funding to cover costs or pay.
-you will retain full rights over your work
-the work will be screened later this year at VIVO.

2. BC TOURISM PROPAGANDA PROJECT

BC Tourism is promoted with the motto, « The Best Place on Earth. » As with
most international mega-events, governments utilize the exposure to promote
their regions for tourism and economic development either through
advertising, the use of pavillions or other marketing intervetions. The
representation of the City and the province will be take on particular,
distorted forms in order to maximize the economic impacts of tourism.

Video artists and filmmakers are invited to participate in making
advertisements about BC with the « The Best Place on Earth » motto that
investigate some of the historic and socio-political questions that have
been contested.

A few considerations:

-The work needs to be under 3 minutes long
-The work needs to be completed by March 31st, 2010
-The work will be shown at VIVO later this year
-Though there is access to some equipment at VIVO, participants should try
to have access to their own equipment

3. NOISE POLLUTION PLAYGROUND

Maybe you love the 2010 spectacle. Maybe you think it’s a waste of money
and it increases the costs of housing and violates people rights. Maybe

Harpo Foundation
Call for Proposals
Deadline: April 15, 2010
http://www.harpofoundation.org

Mission
Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are under
recognized by the field. This applies to all artists whether emerging or
further along in their careers. We view the definitions of art and artist
to be open-ended and expansive.

2010 Funding Focus
The relationship between art and site in an era defined by digital
technologies is the focus for Harpo Foundation’s 2010 funding cycle. Of
specific interest is the dialectic between the non-locality of the digital
world and the existential physicality of our everyday environment. For
example, our sense of place is being drastically altered by web space,
which brings geographically distant locations together to form a new kind
of locality, yet what’s small, local, personal, political and natural
informs our vision for a sustainable future; the search for place-bound
identity persists.

When site-specific art emerged in the late 1960’s, the physical and
experiential qualities of a fixed and permanent location inspired the art.
Since then, ‘site’ has been redefined endlessly, turning the tangible,
grounded concept into something fluid and transient. Interestingly, in our
everyday lives, the local is often seen as losing ground to global dynamics
like hypermobility and deterritorialization, evoking the question, has
place has become an ephemeral, fleeting image?

The Foundation is interested in how artists are reclaiming the significance
of the local while simultaneously placing themselves and their creative
lives within a global context. We are interested in supporting projects
that are grounded in the real world, that will draw upon local phenomena,
activate social relationships to inspire a community, trigger memory to
recall a place’s unique history, to name just a few of the ways we see
artists addressing site today. We are also interested in supporting
projects that explore the idea of place using technologies that challenge
our traditional notions of what qualifies as locality.

In pursuing this direction for one year, we hope to shed light on how
artists today are locating or siting their work in a dematerializing world
and the Foundation will prioritize projects that expand, explore, critique,
reconcile, and challenge this 21st century phenomenon.

Deadline
The deadline for proposals is April 15, 2010.

Gallery 1313 | Call for submissions by emerging artists | MAR 25
————————————————————————
Call for Submissions – Intersections
Gallery 1313 Window Box

Deadline: March 25, 2010

Curators Simone Rojas-Pick and Jessica Nagy are currently
accepting creative proposals from emerging artists for their
exhibition series, Intersections, taking place in Gallery 1313’s
Window Box. From May 2010 – April 2011, the Window Box will
be devoted to the Launch Pad Project, which will feature four
different exhibition series based on the themes of motion and
flux.

Intersections, the first instalment in the Launch Pad Project, is
centred around the concept of the “mash-up”; where two or more
voices/mediums/styles are combined to create a single work.
The focus of these exhibitions will be on the changeability of
environment and the limits of creation. We extend the
challenge to artists to forget accepted “rules” and work in a
fashion that includes an understanding of flexibility in relation
to the immediate environment. This approach should bring
about new and exciting projects that push beyond the restraints
of the traditional gallery milieu and the confines of set artistic
disciplines.

Artists are welcome to submit work in any media, including but
not limited to: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture,
installation, participatory, performance, video, and new media.
Intersections encourages artists to push the boundaries of their
comfort zones and take the opportunity to experiment with new
mediums or styles. Artists applying collaboratively with
significantly different practices will be given special
consideration. Artists applying independently may be matched
by the curators with other applicants to produce a collaborative
work. Proposals for artist-led community engagement and
outreach activities to accompany the main exhibition are also
welcome.

Exhibition Dates: May 2010 – July 2010
Each exhibition runs for four weeks
Participation Requirements:
• Artists must be emerging, professional artist(s)
• Participating artists must be out of school or completing
studies by project dates
• Must be Ontario resident
• Proposals are for new works only
• Submissions should include the following:
• Artist(s) statement, CV and contact information
• 5-10 JPGs of past work with accompanying image list
• Images of proposed work (clearly labeled)
• Written description of proposed work (maximum 2 pages)
including technical requirements (if applicable).
*We ask at this time that artists submit only one work per
proposal.

Please send submissions electronically.

Deadline: March 25, 2010

Additional Information:
The Window Box is located outside Gallery 1313’s main
entrance in the
courtyard of 1313 Queen Street West in Toronto.
Approximate dimensions of the Window Box:
• 67 inches tall
• 25 inches wide

The 2nd Roma Pavilion Call the Witness
Open Call for Submisson/Collaboration

Deadlines:

15 March 2010, for artists/researchers
1 May 2010, for Media Archives

Address: callthewitness [arobas] gmail [point] com

The curatorial team of The 2nd Roma Pavilion – Call the Witness announces
its open call for artists, researchers and media archive.

This project that will be presented in Venice in 2011 is conceptualised and
curated by the interdisciplinary collaborative curatorial team: Suzana
Milevska, Vladan Jeremic, Rena Raedle and Enisa Eminovska.

The 2nd Roma Pavilion – Call the Witness is an interdisciplinary
collaboration that aims to fostering, producing and presenting contemporary
and new media art by Roma artists from different regions and cultures. In
the core of the project lies the concept of contemporary artist as an
instantaneous witness of his/her time who is not a passive viewer but
rather acts as an active participant in solidarity with the events and
people that provoked his/her art work. Such a phenomenon wherein art
becomes a potential agency for social makeover acquires a completely new
prospect in the period of digitalisation and globalisation and may largely
affect Roma communities.

We issue a « Call for Witnesses » to bring up testimonies and statements for
hearing from artists and researchers that will raise the awareness of
different situations of Roma communities in the world, reaching from
displacement and discrimination to successful emancipatory processes. The
question: who has the control over the means of representation and has the
power to promote the dominant cultural and moral values concerning
Roma/Gypsy communities provoked us to put emphasis on new media art as
available means for self-presentation and self-reflection.

We invite artists and researchers to submit proposals that address these
issues in a way that will allow a further collaborative development, both
content and media wise. The selected contributors will be invited to
present and discuss their proposals at a working meeting to take place in
Belgrade (April 2010) where we will discuss the possibilities of eventual
further productions of individual works or collaborative projects. The
conditions for production will be agreed for the most promising concepts to
be realised in 2010 and presented at the 2nd Roma Pavilion in Venice (2011).

The project 2nd Roma Pavilion – Call the Witness is organised by the Roma
Media Base – Skopje based organisation for archiving, producing and
presenting contemporary and new media art by Roma artists and communities,
and the Biro za kulturu i komunikaciju from Belgrade. The project is
supported by Open Society Institute and other organisations and sponsors.

The First Roma Pavilion took place in 2007 as a collateral exhibition at
the 52nd Venice Biennale and was initiated by Open Society Institute.

HOW TO APPLY?
1. Call for artists/researchers
Deadline: 15 March 2010

The applications should consist of:
– comprehensive narrative CV (up to 500 words),
– motivation letter and draft (up to 500 words) that will draw on your
interests and the main issues addressed in this project
– your e-mail/phone contacts
Optional:
– visual materials (screenshots, links to videos, pdfs, links to websites,
etc) from existing works or works in progress and proposals for new
researches, photographs, video, animation, performance, comic strips, sound
art and other new media projects.

Who can apply: all Roma artists and other emerging Roma professionals (art
researchers, theorists, curators, activists, etc.), working individually or
in groups in the fields of contemporary art and culture from any country
and region.

2. Call the Witness Media Archive
Deadline: 1 May 2010

We invite Roma cultural centers, archives, festivals and other
organisations and producers to submit existing new media productions (photo
archives, video research projects, etc.) to the Call the Witness Media
Archive that will be presented at the 2nd Roma Pavilion in Venice.

At this stage please submit only a description of the media production(s)
or the content of your archive, the address of your organisation and
samples (texts, images jpgs, links to video excerpts, existing online
archives, etc.)

Le concours se déroule du 1er juin 2009 au 31 mars 2010 minuit. La session du jeu est accessible sur le site Internet de la fédération, à l’adresse : http://www.francorap.com.

Le programme met à disposition des résidents des ateliers de travail individuels (+/- 45m2) et un programme de formation (en séances individuelles et collectives) pendant 1 an pour les résidents internationaux et 6 mois pour les résidents belges ou résidant en Belgique. Différents projets et expositions sont organisés durant chaque résidence.  Le programme de résidence s’inscrit dans l’ensemble des activités du Centre d’Art Contemporain Wiels, dont il forme une composante essentielle et complémentaire. Situé dans le bâtiment moderniste classé des anciennes brasseries Wielemans, Wiels développe trois pôles d’activités principales : exposition, résidence et programme socio-artistique. Eléments du programme de résidence 1. 9 ateliers de travail, accessibles 7j/7, 24h/24, meublés et disposant d’un accès Internet.  2.

Call for proposals – Wirksworth Festival 2010, UK
Wirksworth Festival 2010 
Deadline 22 March, 2010
Festival curator David Gilbert is calling for proposals for our commissioned programme for 2010 and beyond.
Thematically Wirksworth Festival will continue to explore the relationship between Art & Architecture, and over the next three years we want to explore the nature, meanings and uses (past, present, actual and potential) of buildings | indoor and outdoor space | public and private space in a number of ways:
1. Pavilion Programme. A call to architects and designers interested in proposing a temporary structure (a Pavilion) for Wirksworth.
2. [Im]Possible Wirksworth: An inventory of unrealised ideas. The Pavilion will contain concept designs, fly-through graphics, maquettes etc, from architects, designers, artists, proposing exciting and radical new buildings, remodelling of existing buildings, uses of unusual and problematic sites, etc…
Some of these projects may be realised as part of the commissioned programme.
3. Site-specific/Site-responsive commissions. This will be complemented by extending the site-specific and site-responsive art commissioning programme, so we are now seeking proposals for interventions in spaces in the town, whether sculptural, architectural, projected (including film, interactive work and 3D motion graphics) or performative.
4. Film and Moving Image. A new strand to the Festival is film/artists’ film and video, with an architecture themed short film salon for 2010, and the potential for projection works which interact with, intervene in or respond to architecture.

Disciplines: Literature, Media Art, Music, Performing Arts, Sculpture, Visual Arts
Target Group: International

Takt offers 10 rooms to active artists visiting Berlin. The residency arised from the takt kunstprojektraum project, a non-profit, artist-run effort, founded in 2003. The main goal of the residency program is to provide artists visiting Berlin quick access to an environment that will foster their creative energies. Participating artists are invited and expected to explore their creative paths. The artists participating in the program have the opportunity to participate in open studio events. The residency has a strong element of community living. It merges a community living environment with creative artistic exploration. The rooms are all on the same floor, on either side of an L-shaped hallway. There are two kitchens and two bathrooms, which are shared by all those in the space. A series of meetings is organized each month, where people can present their work and exchange ideas. The goals are to create a platform for dynamic exchange, to allow the possibility for spontaneous collaborations, and to build up networks among artists.

There is no stipend or living allowance associated with a studio residency. Artists will need to consider other sources of income to fund their visit. The cost for participating in the residency program varies depending on the size of the room and other conditions of the space.

The rooms are located in the East-Berlin neighborhood of Friedrichshain. The neighborhood offers many café’s, restaurants, bars and shops. There is easy access to public transportation, and one can quickly get to other parts of the city. There are many artists living in the neighborhood and most people speak English as well as German.
