Alternative Art School Fair

November 17-19, 2016

Pioneer Works, New York

The Alternative Art School Fair presents an introduction to alternative art schools from around the world.

Art education is a reflection of social and cultural evolution; it engages with structures of meaning-making and considers different frameworks for experience. The impetus to create an alternative art school is rooted not only in a desire to create “better” art, but to create the conditions for greater freedom of expression. Often run as free, artist-run initiatives, the values and visions of alternative art schools vary widely in methodology, mission and governance. But even when they are relatively small in scale they provide vital models of cultural critique and experimentation.

The Alternative Art School Fair recognizes that the act of school building is an effort to create institutional structures that are more responsive to cultural evolution. With this in mind the Fair invites the public to engage with these schools at interactive booths alongside a weekend program of presentations and discussions that examine the role of such alternatives.

The reasons for this fair are several
– To provide better visibility for alternative schools and improve access to their programming.
– To create opportunities for schools to share experiences and resources for mutual enrichment.
– To generate awareness and discussion of their methods among a broader public.
– To reflect on the structure and purpose of traditional institutions.
– To demystify the process of creating a school.

Criteria
– Calls itself a school.
– Engages arts or creative practice education within their programming.
– Proposes something unique in terms of methodology, organization, mission, curriculum, final output.
– If the school does not call itself an art school, it should propose something that can impact or transform arts education.
– Is a space that generates alternative systems and new cultural models.

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.

You’ll need to either create an account on opencall.sciencegallery.com or you can log in using your existing Facebook or Google accounts.

Find full submission details on the Science Gallery website here.

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

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.
