Random Orange International Artist Open Call for Submissions

Organised by Ice Tuxedo

Deadline for applications: Friday 8th July, 2016, Time: 6 pm

Random Orange is an International Open Call exhibition organised by Ice Tuxedo.  Artists are asked to apply with work that respond to an extract taken from ‘The Science in Science Fiction’ ed. Peter Nicholls, 1982, p. 91.

_____________________________

EXTRACT:

‘There are various intriguing science fiction notions concerning time that can only call upon very distant support from science.  A notable example is A.E. van Vogt’s novel The Weapon Shops of Isher, in which a man throws alternately, as if on a seesaw, increasingly distant past and futures, accumulates so much energy (for surely time travel requires energy) that when he finally explodes in the distant past, it is the intensity of this release of energy that catalyzes the creation of the Sun and the planets.  This is one of the ultimate time paradoxes.  More soberly, Ian Watson’s story “The Very Slow Time Machine’ tells of a future time traveller in a machine which, before it is projected even further into the future, must (like a catapult) first be very slowly pulled back into the past.  To battled present-day observers he seems to be experiencing normal duration, but in reverse.  There is a remote sense in which physics supports the relationship between time and energy that these stories rather vaguely suggest.  The initial energy of the Big Bang that gave birth to our universe is thought to be directly connected to the nature of time in the universe. We do not know exactly how much energy this was, but we do know that the greater the initial energy, the longer time itself will last before the universe reaches its hear-death or collapses back into a monobloc.’

‘The Red Files’ Exhibition, Open Call to Artists: Deadline Friday 7th August 2015

The Red Files Open Call

The Red Files’ Open Call 27.08.15 – 12.09.2015

Curated by Ismail Erbil    Deadline for applications: Friday 7th August 2015

The Red Files is the fourth and final Open Call exhibition at Schwartz Gallery for 2015. The Open Call format has created exhibition opportunities throughout the year for emerging contemporary artists and tested curatorial concepts within the space. Juxtaposing ideas of colour and order The Red Files investigates psychological versus physical space within concepts of the contemporary. Occupying the abstract yet being rooted in a physical ordering The Red Files invites artists to submit work that responds to ideas of untold stories, latent expressions of the self and inverted systems of classification. The gallery space will be reformed through the use of divisions reenforcing ideas of transition and repetition by concealing and revealing physical and perceptual space.

‘ex-ca-vate-site-two’ Open Call to Artists artists living and working in London and the U.K only.

Curated by Ismail Erbil

Deadline for applications: Thursday 21st May 2015

Exhibition dates: 03.06.15 – 04.07.2015
Gallery opening times: Thursday, Friday & Saturdays 1 – 6 pm or by  appointment

Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays: 4th June & 2nd July 2015, 6 – 9 pm

‘ex-ca-vate-site-two’ is a group show in an open call format curated by artist-curator Ismail Erbil that investigates the relationship between finished works and those found in the artist’s studios, thinking of this relationship as a type of excavation.   Re-visiting the studio in a gallery environment Erbil records and reconsiders curatorial relationships and questions the context of the gallery versus the studio revealing often hidden or unseen aspects of an artist’s practice. Displaying a sense of unearthed visions creates unorthodox sites of interaction between artworks, the gallery space and the viewer.  A large structure in the centre of the gallery references Joseph Beuys sculpture work ‘Fat Battery’ 1963 and Meret Oppenheim object 1936.  This investigation at Schwartz Gallery extends from Erbil’s ideas of ‘digging’ for minimalist visions, saturation and construction as a dimension of the artist’s role, questioning the act of erasing and displaying broken artworks.  The viewer will also have the option to be guided by the gallery assistants to link up finished objects with studio objects disrupting their process of engaging with the exhibition and shifting their role into that of active agent in the context of the exhibition as an installation.

TERMS & CONDITIONS:
Artists are encouraged to apply with work that responds to the above ideas of excavation, unearthed visions and the idea of finishes versus the unfinished.
