Open Call to All Artists on “Art as Activism” Theme for Chelsea NY Gallery

blogDemocracy

Hi Artists,

Listed below are two calls for art. The first is from Gutfreund Cornett Art on Democracy and is open to all artists as this is an “art as activism” theme. The second call for art is from the Women’s Caucus for Art and is titled “Trending: Contemporary Art Now!” This show is open to self-identified women artists. Let’s change the world through powerful art! Please contact me with any questions at karengutfreundart@gmail.com and as always, I hope you don’t consider my email notifications “spam”. But we will remove you from our list if you’d prefer not to hear from us.

If you haven’t worked with GCA or WCA before – below is an example of our work. It is the mission of GCA to change the world with art as activism and the mission of WCA to promote women artists who are underrepresented in the art world.

Below are links to the online catalog and gallery for an upcoming show at AIR Gallery, titled “Who’s Afraid of Feminism” from the Women’s Caucus for Art. Enjoy!

CALLS FOR ART!

WHAT’S RIGHT, WHAT’S LEFT: DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA

In the upcoming election year, what does democracy mean in the United States? It’s time for artists to get on their soap boxes – whether it is a conceptual soapbox (Warhol) or direct Statement Art (Jenny Holtzer) and tell us what you think about democracy in America.

What is happening within our borders with the increasing polarization of our political parties and how do our views of democracy affect those outside our borders when we try to spread the American Dream? Have we made progress or are we going backwards? Whether you lean to the right or lean to the left, tell us what you think about the current state of affairs. How does increasing surveillance affect the tenets of democracy? We have both freedom and a lack of privacy in this digital and Patriot’s Act world as drones and wiretaps are commonplace and virtually unquestioned and unopposed; but do we have a voice in any of this Big Brother culture and with voting restriction laws being passed across the country to silence particular demographics of the American public. How does the media portray democracy — truth vs. spin? What is actually news versus entertainment in bombastic, biased editorials? Consider democracy in relation to civil, personal and political rights, economic gain, and the debate over freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom to choose to live as you wish. What did our forefathers intend in the Constitution with the freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, the pursuit of happiness, etc. To whom do these tenets apply in a racially, religious and politically divided country?

GCA is asking artists to share their voices in this art-based conversation about democracy and seeks art that address and interprets these broadly.

Video: Eco Art Space Interview with Eco-artist Patricia Johanson

The artist Patricia Johanson sent us this Eco Art Space video interview. In it, the artist discusses drawing and her outdoor designs including her Ellis Creek Water Recycling Facility project in Petaluma, California. This video was created for the exhibition Remediate/Re-vision at Wave Hill Arts Org in New York in 2010. Curated by Jennifer McGregor.

VIDEO—Deborah Grant at the Drawing Center: Whitehot Magazine

The Drawing Center in New York came into existence in 1977. In 2006, the Drawing Center’s artist registry application process and archive went online. Many artists applied and the registry increased to over 2,500 artists. Up until recently, The Drawing Center allowed artists to upload their artwork images for curatorial review and acceptance into this curated artist registry, which is open to use by curators and others art professionals. But now, the Drawing Center has redesigned their website and submissions program. They no longer accept new submissions for their artist registry. However, they encourage artists to apply to their newly launched artists’ platform, Open Sessions.  Open Sessions is a two-year program open to artists working in a variety of disciplines. Open Sessions will offer selected artists exhibition opportunities in The Drawing Center’s Lab Space and other venues, as well as studio visits, public programs, and informal gatherings.

Artists Connect With Brooklyn Based Microscope Gallery in Facebook Group

There are many ways artists connect with gallerists–meeting and talking with them at Basel Miami, iPad portfolio in hand, is one way.

Artists can also do research online to find and connect with gallerists in groups on LinkedIN, Google+ and Facebook.

The MICROSCOPE Gallery in Brooklyn New York presents film, video, sound, performance, new media and other time-based artists through exhibitions, screenings and other events.  The gallery also has a Facebook group. This open group is a place for artists to connect with the people at Microscope Gallery.

Many galleries accept proposals from artists, or have open submission policies as well as seasonal calls for submissions.

Last month, I helped a small group of artists write a gallery proposal for a group show in a New York City gallery. One of the artists mentioned that the gallery website states that they are not currently accepting proposals, but that when she emailed the gallery she was invited to submit an artist proposal. The proposal we put together contained the bio, CV, and exhibition history of each artist, as well as images of their artwork and descriptions of their art making processes. The proposal proved to be an excellent way for these artists to introduce themselves to the curators at that particular gallery, as well as enter into the gallery system. Plus the proposal was structured for future updating, and use–each of the artists can expand, adapt, add new work, or develop the proposal further to use for other opportunities. If you would like to learn more about artist proposals, contact me, Marie Kazalia, via email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com

Finding time to research gallery opportunities can be an issue for many artists. That’s why Artist Marketing Resources put together a 200 page list of clickable links for artist to research and connect with art galleries world-wide. This research list cuts down on artist research time and helps artists quickly identify gallery opportunities. In the PDF, galleries currently accepting submissions, proposals, or that offer artists other opportunities to show their work( such as alternative galleries that have storefront exhibition programs and sales venues), are highlighted in yellow. That way artist quickly check under a region heading, note which galleries are accepting submissions and proposals, and visit those gallery site to learn more.

One hour each day researching the International Art Gallery PDF will provide you with many new opportunities and a better understanding of galleries in any region. The PDF currently has extensive sections containing links to galleries in major art centers such New York City and Brooklyn, the California cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, Chicago, London, Berlin, and cities in China, Canada, and Australia, as well as, growing lists of links to galleries in other cities in the USA, Europe, Asia, and South America.

Our own research is ongoing, and as new galleries open their doors we quickly add them to our PDF gallery list.

Artists should feel free to contact us with any questions, needs, or requests. We love hearing from you.

NYC Public Art Project Artist’s Commission $5000

Delancey Street, Bowery, Manhattan, New York City.

Delancey Street, Bowery, Manhattan, New York City. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Lower East Side Business Improvement District (LES BID) will be unrolling creative programming in the newly opened pedestrian plazas located at the mouth of the Williamsburg Bridge on Clinton and Delancey Streets. The LES BID also operates the two square parking lots that border the southern section of these plazas with each having an approximate width of 200 feet.

The LES BID is inviting proposals from local, national, or international artists and artist teams that would like to devise a creative use of this space via a wrap of fence sections that harks to the storied history of the Lower East Side.

 Each side of the fence that will be wrapped is approximately 200’ long, therefore the expected length of this project should span approximately 400’. These fences are located at one of the busiest traffic corridors in all of Manhattan, along the Williamsburg Bridge entrance where nearly 111,000 vehicles and over 200,000 sets of eyes drive by daily. The fences are chain link and approximately 8’ high.

The installation should be designed to highlight and pay homage to the cultural and creative institutions that are home to the Lower East Side (for example, landmarks such as The Eldridge Street Museum). Proposals should be approached in one of two ways. Proposals can include ways to highlight the neighborhood’s cultural institutions through placement of graphics or illustrations combined with an exploration of a creative way to engage the space. Alternatively, proposals can simply explore a singular exploration of art without the inclusion of these actual graphics that pay homage to the cultural institutions. However, this second type of proposal would have to consider space adequate enough to allow for display of these forthcoming cultural institution graphics or illustrations. 

The installation should be a visually pleasing and creative and constructive way to create a barrier between a parking lot and the wide-open space of the plaza that is book-ended by the traffic flow.

This is an outdoor space that is open to the public. Installation for the project will be able to commence as soon as a proposal has been selected and materials have been procured. The installation will be semi-permanent. The LES BID is in contract to program the space for five years with the option to renew with one year extension increments.

Proposals should take into consideration these plazas are brand new and serve as a mellow juxtaposition for the never-ending flow of traffic that is constantly moving through this area. 

Drawing on concepts such as stagnation vs movement or calm vs crazy should be considered. Also, inspiration from the idea of exiting and moving on can also be considered since this area is the last location that people will lay their eyes on before exiting Manhattan.

BUDGET/STIPEND –Approximately $5,000

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

 This is an extremely high traffic and high visibility space. Also, there are many new changes and development projects that will be taking place in the Lower East Side. Getting involved on the ground floor via a project of this sort in such an already culturally diverse, dynamic neighborhood has the potential to open many additional doors. 

In conjunction with this artwork piece, we are also in the process of recruiting companies to program the plaza during weekends of the warmer summer months. Over the next year, this space will dramatically change as the vehicular traffic is matched by an increase in foot traffic to this area and the plaza will be comprised of weekend vendors. 
The space is a combination of two sides of two parking lots that are situated next to each other on Delancey Street. The interiors of each of these fences contain parking lots and the exterior is a pedestrian plaza that is approximately 9,000 square feet.

LES BID is in the process of appointing the board of judges who will help with the selection process. The board will consist of reps from the arts as well as community stakeholders.
Final decisions on the winning application will be announced two weeks after the submission deadline. Winners will be notified via phone call.

The video will be premiered as part of installation in Palazzo Peckham in Venice this year, a brand new venue designed and built for the 55th Venice Biennale in the summer of 2013, situated in Castello between the Giardini and the Arsenale. NEW LAVORO is looking for 18 talented participants who are willing to experiment, and go through 7 different contests judged by well-known guest artists. Participants in the show will wear special outfits designed by NY fashion brand Eckhaus Latta. Project is dedicated to exploring relations between creative industry workers and aspirational lifestyles operating behind the curtains of current sustainable economies, and takes different approach than other art reality shows; experiments with production in extreme/realistic living conditions: minimum budgets, borderline use of materials that are ‘non-artistic’, theft or misuse of commercial resources and immaterial production, testing the boundaries of how we can produce art in time of economical crisis and material overload.

AFTER HOURS 2: MURALS ON THE BOWERY is a public art installation that plays with the practices of graffiti art, traditional mural painting and graphic posters, to ignite the neighborhood surrounding The Bowery. After Hours 2 invites artists to reflect upon the history and present state of The Bowery to create a site specific mural or poster. This public art project is both a destination for a specific audience and an unexpected art intervention for the passerby.

ART PRODUCTION FUND is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to commissioning and producing ambitious public art projects, reaching new audiences and expanding awareness through contemporary art.

IDEAS CITY is a festival that explores the future of cities around the globe with the belief that arts and culture are a driving force behind the vitality of urban centers. IDEAS CITY was founded by the New Museum as a major collaborative initiative between dozens of arts, education, and community organizations working together to effect change. The festival is held every other year in New York with satellite conferences and workshops taking place in international cities during the alternate years. IDEAS CITY was launched in New York in 2011.

IDEAS CITY Topic 2012/2013: Untapped Capital

As the world’s resources continue to be endangered, depleted, and destroyed, we need to come up with new solutions and practices and develop new approaches. Rather than focusing on our deficits, this year’s IDEAS CITY encourages an examination of surplus capital that may be under-recognized or underutilized. There are many ways of thinking about what untapped capital could be: people, ideas, networks, raw materials, varied resources, and modes of communication. The topic of Untapped Capital provides a meeting place for developing alternative thinking, new methodologies, new solutions, and new goals.

After Hours 2 is made possible with the generous support of Sotheby’s.
