Open Call for Exhibition Proposals: Science Gallery, A Place Where Science and Art Collide

blgosynapse

Since opening in 2008, Science Gallery has had over one million visitors. Today, Science Gallery is seeking proposals for its upcoming exhibition LIFELOGGING LAB, which will open in February 2015.

Curators for this exhibition are seeking up to 14 works. Proposals will be funded up to a maximum budget of €2600. Two outstanding original works may be commissioned with a higher budget of up to €7500.

From critical to creative, LIFELOGGING LAB will ask artists, designers and philosophers ‘where do we go from here’ and question whether we can record and analyse happiness, beauty and aesthetics the same way we record footsteps and heartbeats. This exhibition will explore novel methods for capturing data, for visualizing, and for analysing the insights that new data affords us about ourselves and society.

Submissions Deadline: Thursday, October 23, 2014 – 12:00

Submission Guidelines

Decide if you’re going to do a video based or text-based proposal submission.

For a video based proposal submit an informal two-minute (max) video in which you:

  • explain how the visitor will experience your piece in the gallery
  • tell us a bit about yourself
  • outline a brief budget breakdown

Record your video with your phone, webcam and upload it to your own YouTube or Vimeo account or directly from the gallery submission page, or directly to the gallery submission page in MP4 format.

For text based submissions, submit up to a 300 word proposal in which summarize the same information: what the visitor will see/hear/experience, a bit about yourself, and a budget breakdown.

For each type of submission, you can also include images to illustrate your project.

Call for Submissions: The Multiple eXposure Project Zine 1.0

Attention writers, researchers, photographers, visual artists, and image-makers!

The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator.

We are happy to announce that we will be publishing the very first issue of our collaborative zine and we are now accepting submissions until December 31, 2014.

The theme of our upcoming zine is “Self-as-Subject”, an exploration of the “self” and its manifold permutations – its presence, identity, representation, liminality, and (dis)embodiment – in this day and age of digital madness, hyperreality and mobility.

The zine is multimedia so we are accepting text and image-based submissions related to the theme in any format imaginable such as: articles, essays, reviews, short stories, poetry, interviews, photographs (film or analogue), visual narratives, videos, digital art, illustrations, cartoons, mixed media, collages, experimental pieces, etc. Collaborative projects are very much welcome. Multiple entries are also accepted. Digital and printed copies of the zine will be released.

Some notes to remember:

-   Please include your name, short profile, country of origin, and blog/website (if applicable) in your email.

-   Photo submissions in jpeg format must include a title and description.

-   When necessary, please follow the proper citations (MLA style) in article submissions.

Please email your submissions to themultipleexposureproject@gmail.com. For more information on The Multiple eXposure Project, check out our website: http://www.themultipleexposureproject.co.nr.

imgfave app, a New Art Gallery, and a Call for Proposal Submissions

 

blogdefmagnifer

 

In my daily research I’m always on the look out for opportunities for artists. In case you missed these found around the web this week:

The art gallery Haunch of Venison London closed not long ago and now the former gallery directors Ben Tufnell and Matt Watkins are launching a new gallery, Parafin, in Woodstock Street, Mayfair, London in September 2014. Founder of London gallery Master Piper, Nicholas Rhodes will join them on this new venture. The new Parafin will represent emerging artists and internationally established artists.

Find a 261 page list of clickable links to International Art Galleries here.

Deadline for proposal submissions for Project Anywhere 2015 program is September 1, 2014. Proposal guidelines can be found here.

Project Anywhere is an expanded exhibition model encompassing the entire globe in which the role of curator is replaced with a peer review system. Emphasizing art outside conventional exhibition circuits, Project Anywhere specifically promotes the work of artists at the outermost limits of location-specificity.

I added the imagfave free app to my iPad just this morning. imgfave seems to be a great site for sharing your art images large and getting others to share them on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest.  It’s easy to create a new account on imgfave and immediately upload your art, or try some cross-promotion with artist friends–upload one of their art images and have them upload one of yours.

International Open Call to Artists: The Brain / Human Mind

blogbrainXrayartScience Inspires Art–The Brain International Open Call!

This call makes some interesting associations between Artists working with perception, memory, and emotion to create new works and new collaborations between scientists and artists using abstract thinking, imagination, and visual perception.  Recently, a young neuroscientist enamored with the beauty of the brain’s neurons and synapses became a painter!

With this call for artists to submit work for the exhibition, SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: The Brain, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI) and the New York Hall of Science want to display the aesthetic results of human curiosity about the brain (human or other) and seek stunning, two-dimensional images of original art (executed in any visual media), inspired or informed by any aspect of the brain or new discoveries in neuroscience.

Voices: An Artist’s Perspective Seeks Art in All Media

blogblackbanner

Hi Artists! Here is another great call for art that is in conjunction with UniteWomen.org. Hope you are having a great summer and I look forward to another impactful and meaningful exhibition by women artists!  Best, Karen

Voices: An Artist’s Perspective

Voice, by definition, includes a larger sense of expression than just the utterance of sound; it also signifies meaning and intention in artistic pursuits.  “Voices: An Artists Perspective” seeks art in all media with works portraying a unique, individual voice and style to tell stories, whether the voice is as soft as a whisper or a loud, primal scream that will engage the viewer.

Feminism advocates for freedom from restrictive sex roles and the inclusion of all voices in its push for gender equality and the fight for social, cultural, economic and political rights. This call for art seeks to include broad concepts of imagery using a woman’s voice as the visual narrative. Expressing your voice through art to tell your story is a means to reveal mind and spirit whether with symbolic bold energy or subtle poetic expression. Share your voice, your story, your art.

Enter here:  http://www.entrythingy.com/www.unitewomen.org#dashboard

The work will first be juried by Karen Gutfreund and UniteWomen.org from all entries to 100 pieces that will be included in the catalog and online gallery. From these works, Joan McLouglin and Amanda Uribe will also jury the selections for the gallery and choose their top three works each which will also be premiered on the UniteWomen.org website.

In January of 1889, five innovative women, Grace Fitz-Randolph, Edith Mitchell Prellwitz, Adele Frances Bedell, Anita C. Ashley, and Elizabeth S. Cheever, barred from full participation in the male-dominated National Academy of Design and The Society of American Artists, founded the Women’s Art Club. The organization flourished and in 1913 was renamed the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, reflecting its national influence and the increasing number of women sculptors. Through the 1920’s the organization was sponsoring exhibitions nationally and abroad. In the 1930s membership grew to over 1,000 and the organization opened its Argent Galleries on 57th Street in New York City. In 1941, the organization changed its name again to the National Association of Women Artists.

Early exhibitions included works by the notable artists Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon and Cecelia Beaux.  Later, membership rosters included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Anna Hyatt Huntington, Louise Nevelson, Cleo Hartwig, Malvina Hoffman, Minna Citron, Alice Neel, Theresa Bernstein, Nell Blaine, and Dorothy Dehner.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the National Association of Women Artists (N.A.W.A.) is to foster public awareness of, and interest in, visual art created by women in the United States. The Association promotes culture and education in the visual arts through exhibitions of its members’ works, educational programs, scholarships, awards, its historical archive, and other appropriate means.

While encouraging contemporary and emerging artists, the Association honors and continues the long and important contribution of women to the history of American culture and art.

Through N.A.W.A.’s exhibitions, programs, events, education programs and archive, the Association fosters awareness of the monumental contribution of women to the history of American culture and art. The organization is inclusive and serves professional women visual artists of all backgrounds and traditions that are at least 18 years of age and U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents. N.A.W.A. is a 501©3 not-for profit, tax exempt organization.
