The Great Wall of Oakland is accepting submissions through January 31, 2015 for their Fall 2015 season. Submit proposals, specific work, and projects of digital art, moving image, video, and new media work to be screened on their 100×100 foot urban projection space in Downtown Oakland, California.

SUPERCUT – Accepting Submissions Through Jan 31st!

They’re especially interested in works that take a more artistic, conceptual, or critical approach and are not simply fan-created compilations of popular TV shows. Work will be displayed during The Wall’s March First Friday installation which is seen by thousands during Oakland’s Art Murmur event. Curated by Timothy Furstnau (FICTILIS) & Christina Yglesias.
Deadline: Saturday January 31, 2015. Artists notified February 15, 2015 for screening on March 6, 2015.

|A London-based group of five young curators studying MA Curating at the Contemporary at London Metropolitan University in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery are inviting artists to submit works for an exhibition to take place on the 13th – 27th March 2015 at The Bank Space Gallery in London.The show will mainly focus on the idea of “screen” and how it influences our everyday experience of and approach to the world.Since the screen became portable, this unavoidable tool mediates almost every interaction with external reality. Within a world of flat images, we handle and caress screens rather than touch objects, we text instead of talk and we browse instead of ask.
Open to all artists working with any media, this exhibition intends to explore our relationship with the “screen” and the impact it has on our everyday life. You are invited to investigate this “black mirror” as a contemporary, challenging and engaging concept and to go beyond the surface.
The deadline for submissions is Sunday 11th January 2015 at 12pm. Interested artists should submit the following to email@example.com with the subject line BANKSPACE EXHIBITION,with: A copy of your artist CV; A link to your website or online portfolio; A brief statement about your work; Up to 4 images of your work (PDF or JPEG of reasonable size).

Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry.

Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.
