The next theme is ‘copy.’ The closing date is 12 March at 10 am. Read the full details here.

There is a blue ‘Contribute’ button and you can also use the GuardianWitness smartphone app or the Guardian app and search for ‘GuardianWitness assignments’.

Next, we love this one!  the Concept Bank is a web-based platform for open source performance. They are asking you to submit your performance work written as an instruction manual no longer than 150 word and they will perform your concept during a festival in the Netherlands.

In the Netherlands, the festival season usually starts at the end of March. The Concept Bank will participate in various festivals in the spring and summer of 2015. Sometimes they will show up as officially invited participants, but most of the time they appear to be paying guests. At strategic spots at festivals The Concept Bank will create a mobile office to share your/their performance concepts freely to the interested public. They are looking for good concepts to put together their Festival Package. If you want to submit a work, write it as clearly as possible, write it as a manual.

Netherlands Media Art Institute: Upload Your Art to the Annlee Blog Project

The internet is considered a free medium through which people are able to find, spread and re-mix information, but at the same time this freedom is limited by boundaries like copyright laws which have become increasingly complicated and prominent. How does this influence artists? To what extent are artworks open to interpretation and intervention?In 1999, the artists Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno bought a manga character from “K” works, a Japanese firm that develops Manga figures. Huyghe and Parreno decided to ‘free the image from the animation market’, named ‘her’ Annlee, made their own initial works and invited other artists to use Annlee for new art projects, free of charge. Annlee was given a voice, history and an identity and she popped up in animation videos, paintings, objects, installations, posters and a magazine, soundworks and a book. In the end 28 works were produced by 18 different artists. The project was finalized in 2002 with the artists definitively killing her off (including a coffin) and liberating her from the realm of representation -as they described it- by signing over the copyrights of the image to Annlee herself.Is this really the end? Is Annlee dead, truly free, or both? Copyright was used explicitly to lock up an appropriated image that has the potential to flow freely as an open art work. Annlee has disappeared as an image, but not as an entity that can be discussed and talked about or as a subject for new artworks. A decade after the project came to an end, artists are invited  to respond to the Annlee project ‘unofficially’ hoping to open up the character to new art pieces. As Philippe Parreno suggested: “the project doesn’t stop in the absence of Annlee, it can always produce more authors.” We look forward to your input, ideas and brand new artworks!Art can be uploaded onto the blog dedicated to this ‘Annlee @ NIMk’ project annlee.nimk.nl. The blog will be shown in the exhibition

Share List: Directory of Art Consultants

For artists–

By request, I am sharing my personally researched Contact List of 500+  art consultants, in a PDF share file. The Directory of Art Consultants is 100+ pages, and growing, and consists of email addresses and clickable site links. Many of the listing include notes on the speciality or style or type of art the consultant is currently seeking, such as corporate, hospitality industry, health care industry, Giclee prints, photography, sculpture, etc. The Directory of Consultants contains mostly US corporate art consultants listed by region and state. There are also several listing for art consultants in Mexico, Europe –UK, France, Germany, Spain, Netherlands–as well as some listing of consultants in Asia, Dubai, and South Africa.
