Call for Applications: Paris Post Graduate Research and Experimentation Program Opens in NYC Fall 2015


We received an email from Virginia, who is the Director of the art program offered by the Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (Iheap) that initially began in Paris and will be starting in the fall of 2015 in New York.

Virginia wrote- “I would like to ask you to share our call for applications on your website and social media, if possible, because I believe your network might find it interesting. Enclosed in this email you will find the Iheap brochure with more information about the program and a list of the lecturers for the upcoming Session XI. Iheap is a post-graduate institute for research and experimentation in art that serves as the educational branch of the Biennale de Paris.

The program offers its participants a unique course of study that is not bound to the history of 20th century art but actively encourages the investigation of crucial issues of art in the 21st century.
Iheap is addressing all creative practitioners who have an expectation to engage not only within the art world, but also with the world at large. The lecturers, in fact, are coming from a wide range of disciplines, from the art field as well as from philosophy, economics, history, linguistics and so on. Iheap is a fluid school with the classes taking place at different locations, such as art organizations, schools, galleries, museums, cafés, apartments, parks, public spaces, parking lots and so on.”

The application procedure is online, accessed at and the deadline for submission is August 15, 2015.

Thank you for your help!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.Screenshot 2015-07-30 at 8.09.22 AM


Open Call for Visual Poets/Artists to Collaborate On NYC Market Poetics Project


Lower East Side (LES) New York City artist is seeking two visual poets / visual artists to collaborate on a public art project at Essex Market in the Lower East Side.

Yes, this is paid work! 

Artists and poets with text, writing, visual skills, particularly photographic, who are tech savvy and passes the ability to channel interactions with people into collaborative compositions of text + image are welcome to apply.   Fluency in Spanish is also helpful.

The project is called Market Poetics and is tied to the 75th Anniversary of Essex Market and Lower East Side History Month– both occurring in May in collaboration with NYEDC and the Artists Alliance. Dates: May 9th and 30th at the market. Includes prep work and some production in the streets

This project uses a Visual Poetics app to create visual poems and to channel stories from the people flowing through the market.  The project work occurs within one of the market stalls, as well as while moving in the market and surrounding streets. We will be creating and uploading work to a project Tumblr blog and that will be projected as a realtime slide show on a wall at the market.

Here’s a link to the past public artwork installations that resulted in the development of the Poetics App software, which is now at version 1.25 and currently used in over 150 countries:   An iPhone is required, as it’s the sole platform thus far for the app.

INTERESTED? Send a link to your work, a short introduction about your interest and background, and contact information via the email on the site:

Emerging Artists Retail Network NYC Co-Op Gallery w/No Fees or Dues

The newly formed, EARN/Emerging Artists Retail Network Co-Op Gallery in Manhattan accepts emerging artists working in NYC, and they have no fees or dues. They’re an open group of hard-working professional artists from all backgrounds and disciplines.

EARN currently has 20 active artist members in the collective. The founder Thomas Smith has worked for years in Soho and Chelsea for art galleries, from art handler to sales and management.  The concept for EARN came to him when he noticed how much it costs artists to show their work in a Manhattan Gallery.  The costs are thousands of dollars and there’s no guarantee of selling anything, which leaves the artist with empty pockets and disenchanted with the whole process. In order to open their own retail gallery space, EARN has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to collect contributions that will cover the first couple months of expenses.

It will be interesting to see how they do with their IndieGoGo campaign. Help out if you can.
