Presentation Text: Traditionally organized as physical meetings within the framework of international photography festivals, portfolio reviews are a highly efficient form of communication. Artists meet experts, present their work, receive feedback and, over time, develop their artistic practice as well as their career. Portfolio Dialogue takes this successful concept one step further by providing an online platform for professional portfolio reviews and mentoring – no longer exclusively for photographers but for visual artists.

Residency at School of Visual Arts, France. Deadline: Mar. 29, 2019

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

Every year since 2011, BMW Art & Culture has given an artist the opportunity to produce a photography project in a three-month residency. The project is undertaken at the GOBELINS School of Visual Arts, which has been involved in the Residency for the past two years, following a six-year partnership with the Nicéphore Niépce Museum.
The BMW Residency results in the production of works created with the support of the artistic director, François Cheval and GOBELINS staff. A selection of works produced during the Residency will be exhibited at two major photography events for which BMW is a partner – the 2020 Rencontres d’Arles (between the opening week in July and the end of August) and 2020 Paris Photo fair.
Works produced during the BMW Residency will be presented in a book included published by éditions Trocadéro, in the BMW Art & Culture collection.
The BMW Residency will take place between September and December 2019.

Call for “A Woman’s Work”. Deadline: Jan. 31, 2019

Call for proposals

Deadline for submission
Extended until Thursday 31 January 2019

Proposals by artists and curators based in Europe are invited for projects which address the core themes of A Woman’s Work, a 24 month collaborative programme in which cultural partners in the United Kingdom, Lithuania, Ireland, France and Finland will work together in pursuit of the following objectives:

  • to enable artists and cultural professionals from across Europe to cooperate around the making and presentation to audiences of new work focusing on the changing face of women and work in Europe, with a sharing of professional experience and practice using both physical and online platforms
  • to create new opportunities for artistic exchange within Europe, increasing the mobility of artists and cultural professionals, utilising our respective networks and contacts to extend audience reach and the impact

Overview

Women’s role in industry and technology-based work in post-war Europe is a hitherto untold story, and audiovisual archives have tended to focus on male-orientated ‘heavy industries’ such as coal, iron and steel, or large scale engineering sectors such as shipbuilding, construction, aerospace and car manufacturing. Yet women continue to play a key role in many manufacturing and service industries – for example, textiles, electronics, food and drinks, plastics and pharmaceuticals – a reality which is neither acknowledged nor strongly represented in European cultural archives.

A Woman’s Work is a project that uses photography and digital media to address that deficit through artistic collaboration and exchange across borders, and the co-production of exhibitions, publications and online resources that challenge the dominant view of gender and industry in Europe. The project explores the shifting relationship between home and the workplace, and growth sectors such as the finance industry, media and telecommunications, where women’s work is being re-defined through technological developments and post-globalism.

Opportunities

  • 8 residency opportunities hosted by one or more of the project partners
  • Support for work to be included in curated exhibitions, online platforms and publications as part of the project
  • participation in symposia and events, including opportunities to present work in progress
  • contributing to the audiovisual archive created by the project

Requirements

Entry is open to artists, collaborative groups and curators living in any of the 28 European Union member states or the following eligible countries: Norway, Iceland, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Republic of Serbia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Tunisia.

Those submitting proposals must be 18+, and can be at any stage in their career. There are no gender or religious restrictions. The Panel is looking for high quality proposals which use photography, digital or lens-based, but can include other art forms (eg. installation, printmaking, film and video, music, literature)

Submission

Please use the electronic form and provide the following:

Description of your Proposed Project (up to 250 words) to include summary of the work/project, timescale and planned outputs (exhibition, web, print etc.

Artist/curator CV (up to four pages)

Examples of previous work each submission can include up to 20 images, and links to relevant content on web and social media platforms.

Submissions can be considered as a sequence or individually.

Entry is free, and each individual can make a maximum of two submissions.

HOW CAN I ENTER?

Applications can be made by completing the electronic form and attaching supporting images and documents and emailing them to opencall@ffotogallery.org

Please follow all the instructions to successfully submit your proposals.

Selection

All submissions will be reviewed by the A Woman’s Work Project Partners, coordinated by Ffotogallery, the lead agency. There will be between 20 – 40 selected artists, depending on the quality of the submissions.

Successful entrants will be selected and notified by e-mail in late January/early February 2019, with information regarding what to do next. The decision on successful entrants is final.

Background Information

Central to the project is a commitment to joint working, manifest in reciprocal opportunities for artists and creative professionals from across Europe to travel to and work in each other’s countries. The key outcomes will be the result of creative collaboration in the form of planning, development and co-production of exhibitions, artist residency and commissioning opportunities, print and online publishing, educational programmes and digital engagement activities.

The year 2019 will see the 10th edition of the PhotoIreland Festival bringing to Dublin an ambitious programme running from May to July. May will see the opening of the main exhibitions, while June will be dedicated to an extended educational programme with activities for all. The fireworks are reserved for July, when PhotoIreland Foundation will open the Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland in Dublin city centre, on the 4th July. More details will be released in the coming months, but in the meantime, you can find below information about the calls for proposals for the Open and the Museum Programmes.

OPEN PROGRAMME

If you are planning an event during May-June-July relating to Photography, Visual Culture, Critical Thinking, happening anywhere in Ireland, then join the festival celebrations! We welcome submissions from national and international individuals and organisations. All possible formats for events such as exhibitions, installations, performances, films, videos, talks, workshops, etc. are welcome.

All participants must submit their proposals before the strict deadline. Participant events will be featured in the festival catalogue and on the website, promoted through the festival’s social media, and will receive festival catalogues to distribute during the event. The catalogues are also distributed by us nationwide to key locations.
Strict Deadline: midnight 17 March 2019.

To go ahead, please download the OPEN19 Submission Form, gather all the necessary details and fill it in. There is a contribution fee of €125 towards the marketing materials and distribution.

MUSEUM PROGRAMME

To make 2019 more special, we are opening a call for individuals and organisations to come forward with proposals to be included in the educational programme. There is no fee for submitting proposals, and those selected will receive financial and logistics support.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland is a practice based research project run by PhotoIreland Foundation that aims to create the ideal prototype space to actively engage with Visual Culture and Critical Thinking today. Over the next years, the museum will present an evolving model that will publicly investigate experimental and critical propositions in aspects relating to Museology, Curation, Cultural Policy and Arts Management.

The research sets an important departure towards a new arena where Art and cultural practices and their socio-political context can be both enjoyed and examined in a richly participatory way, with the use of contemporary methodologies. This project is part of the Critical Academy ongoing research on ‘Photography in Ireland’.

We welcome proposals towards the educational programme for events that will run between 5-30 July 2019, broadly focused on the aforementioned topics of Visual Culture, Critical Thinking, Museology, Curation, Cultural Policy, Arts Management, as much as those aimed at promoting Visual Literacy and Art skills through active participation and Art making.

To go ahead, please download the MUSEUM19 Submission Form, fill in the details and email the submission form to pif.submissions@gmail.com
Strict Deadline: midnight 17 March 2019.
