SculptureCenter – IN PRACTICE OPEN CALL

IN PRACTICE PROJECT SERIES: OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS
DEADLINE: June 17, 2013

The In Practice program supports emerging and under-represented artists in creating new work for presentation at SculptureCenter. We are currently inviting artists to submit proposals for new projects to be presented during the 2014 season. Artists selected for the In Practice program will receive a $250 honoraria and up to $1500 in production support. The level of production support will depend on the scope of accepted works and available funding.

During 2013-2014, SculptureCenter will be undergoing extensive building renovations. We are taking this opportunity to encourage artists to propose projects outside of the confines of traditional exhibition formats. Please note, the lower level galleries will be unavailable during this time. The main space and Gallery B on the upper level may be considered for short-term, temporary presentations of performance, audio, film and video works. Publication projects, proposals for the website, public works, the building exterior, and interventions into other parts of the city are also welcome for this year’s In Practice open call. Artists are encouraged to experiment with unconventional display and exhibition formats.

SculptureCenter seeks proposals that offer new ways of considering sculpture or furthering the understanding of the discipline and how it can intersect with other mediums. Proposals will be reviewed relative to the following criteria:

– Quality of the proposal and prior work
– Responsiveness to the site and the specific context of SculptureCenter
– Feasibility of the project

SculptureCenter staff and advisors will conduct a preliminary review of proposals. A limited number of artists will be contacted for further information and/or studio visits during the fall. Submitting artists will be notified by email by September 30, 2013. No calls please.

To be considered, please go to the SculptureCenter website and fill out the application by 11:59pm on June 17, 2013. Please note that we are not accepting submissions by mail, drop off, or email. We strongly recommend that you review the below list of required information in advance, complete a separate document offline, and copy your finalized responses into the online fields.

IMPORTANT: Your application must be submitted through our website by 11:59pm on June 17, 2013. We strongly recommend that the application be completed online several days in advance of the deadline, as we anticipate high volume on our server on the night of June 17th.

Questions? Please read the FAQ below! If you feel you have a question that is not addressed, email us at inpractice @ sculpture-center.org

Does the online application have to be completed in one sitting?
Yes. You cannot save your work to return to at a later time. It is recommended you complete your answers in another document before you begin the application, and copy them into the provided fields.

Do I need to put the image caption in the actual jpeg?
There is a field for each image caption that corresponds to the image uploaded.

When I review my submission, should I be able to see the images I submitted?
No – the system will show just the names of the files and the captions.

The artist statement field is limited to 1,250 characters.

Yes, whatever combination you like, up to 15 total images.

What spaces are available for proposals?
The lower level galleries — where most In Practice projects have taken place in the past — will be closed for renovation in 2014. So this year’s RFP focuses on non-traditional exhibition formats.

Artists from anywhere in the world are encouraged to apply, although the budget does not provide for travel, housing, or accommodation costs.

Can I apply as part of a collaboration or artist team?
Yes. Please designate one mailing and one email address.

What are the dates of the In Practice exhibitions?
Projects will be presented throughout 2014.

How long will I have to install?
Although the exact dates have not yet been determined, it is likely you will have between 1-5 days to install and/or rehearse, subject to discussion with the staff and depending on the organization’s schedule and the needs of selected projects.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: MOMMA TRIED ISSUE NO. 1

For their début Fall/Winter 2012 edition, Momma Tried magazine is seeking writing, photography, and visual arts. Creative and visual perspectives on sexuality are highly encouraged, but not a requirement. Selected entries will be published in print and may also appear online. Momma Tried is published in New Orleans.

Writers
Momma Tried magazine will primarily publish works of creative non-fiction ranging from new journalism to essays to reviews to science writing and many categories in between. Momma Tried is  also interested in “collage” based writing such as lyric essays, prose poetry, and anti-fictions, built from scraps. Reality-based and genre-defying fiction are welcome as well. Please no submissions longer than 8,000 words. Files should be .doc or .pdf.

Visual Artists
Momma Tried magazine is particularly interested in submissions of photography, collage, painting and illustration. They are open to works outside of these categories as well.

No more than 8 images per submission, please.

Disruptive Content
With the ad space that occupies most magazines, we will be developing what we call “disruptive content” by using those blocks of space on the page to add additional art, writing, and photos. Our disruptive content will in some cases be satirical fake adverts, references to projects that don’t actually exists, and things that otherwise compliment or contrast to the primary content on the page. If you are interested in submitting something for consideration as disruptive content, please specify this in your subject line.

Send all submissions to: submissions@mommatriedmagazine.com

Artists, are you Press Ready?! Can you *pitch* an idea for an article about your art?

Amazingly, artist often do not expect press contact, even when they have a new exhibit or project underway, and many artists are just not prepared to provide information to members of the press, including blog writers and blog contributors.

When you receive a request for information for a possible article for a publication, online or print (including blogs),  take advantage of such free promotional opportunities! Prepare in advance and avoid an on-the-spot scramble for those long forgotten press releases! Keep a *Press or Media Room* on your website or artist blog that you update regularly by continually adding your press. Maintain your project art news items in chronological order with the most recent articles and press releases first. When replying to a query from a member of the press, at bare minimum, provided your direct link to your Press Room, or copy and paste from your Press Room into an email. Blog writers and other members of the press may find your press room first, see that you are Press Ready, and then contact you. If you don’t have one, start your Press Room today!

Once you are contacted for a possible article on your work reply promptly with a positive and courteous note and include information such as PDF or Doc attachments that contain your Artist Statement, CV, interviews you’ve done, press releases and previous articles— in this first contact–don’t wait to be asked. Even a writer for a blog appreciates this courtesy, and it shows your enthusiasm for their “project” to write an article about you and your art work. Enthusiasm breeds enthusiasm!

You may or may not wish to attach jpeg images in your first response, but be sure to mention your images and video clips and offer to send them upon request. I *don’t* recommend sending members of the press links to your YouTube videos or Flickr slide shows unless they ask for them, or unless that is all you have available for press viewing. Please be aware that no one is able to take sample images or download video clips from copyright protected image sites such as YouTube or Flickr. Plus how will they tell you which images they want to use? It’s not likely that anyone will take the time to write-up a list of your Flickr art image titles, email that list to you and expect you to send jpegs of those images. It is better to include 5 or 6 jpeg images as email attachments, than it is to send someone off to Flickr or YouTube for a look. An excellent way to offer a selection of images is via MobileMe iDisk or The Cloud where the press writer is easily able to preview and download selected images for one time use in their article. You the artist are giving permission for one time use by sending the jpeg image files and video clips.

Artists, do you know how to *pitch* an idea for an article about your art? Do you know how to tell others what it is that you do?

If you know someone who writes for a blog or print or online publication, why not pitch an idea to them for an article about you and your art?  Send an email. In it  talk about some of your art projects. Enthusiasm counts here too! Be sure that you mention that you  would like to develop an article idea. This may be more conversational at first or turn into a *brainstorming* session. Don’t become offended if your first ideas don’t fly. The blog writer or other media writer has many considerations that have little to do with you or your art. After some back and forth you may agree to provide press releases, write ups, jpegs and video clips featuring a specific aspect of your work or for a particular one of your projects. Consider this a beginning–an open the door to further articles. Try to see this first contact as the start of an ongoing relationship, rather than expect a one time all-encompassing article to result.

If you are pitching an idea as simple as,* post our holiday art sale*–then be sure to include the full formatted details in your email, easy to copy and paste into a blog or other article.

Don’t allow timidity or fear to prevent you from making a pitch. You will learn quickly with your first efforts, and the media contact will likely help you along the way. Once you begin making pitches, you will  recognize many more promotional opportunities for your art.
