RU/VISUAL AIDS CURATORIAL RESIDENCY – DEADLINE: NOV. 17, 2016

REMINDER: RU & Visual AIDS co-sponsor Curatorial Residency – March 2017

A one-month residency, to take place in March 2017 in New York City, for a curator, art historian, or arts writer interested in the intersection of visual art and HIV/AIDS. Co-sponsored by Visual AIDS and Residency Unlimited for the fifth year running, the curatorial residency seeks to encourage the development of exhibitions, programs, and scholarship about HIV/AIDS and contemporary art.

The residency includes round-trip transportation to New York City, accommodations and $1000 stipend.

Residency Unlimited will provide the curator with customized administrative and network support, shared office space at 360 Court Street in Brooklyn and a venue for a public program (lecture/screening/discussion) defined in conjunction with RU and Visual AIDS. Concurrently, the resident curator will conduct research at Visual AIDS in the Archive Project and online Artists Registry. The Visual AIDS office is located in the Chelsea art district in New York City. The Archive and Registry at Visual AIDS holds over 20,000 images by approximately 750 artists living with HIV and those who have passed away from AIDS related complications. Studio visits with artists from the Archive Project are strongly encouraged. The resident curator is invited to create an online exhibition to be hosted by Visual AIDS (see Visual AIDS monthly Web Galleries at: http://www.visualaids.org/gallery).

The resident curator will be invited to produce a free public event co-hosted by RU and Visual AIDS. Panel discussions, film screenings, performances, or a lecture highlighting the curator’s use of Visual AIDS’ resources or a presentation of international cultural production around HIV/AIDS are examples of potential programs.

For information on past Visual AIDS curatorial residents, visit:

http://www.visualaids.org/projects/detail/curatorial-residency

International applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. English speaking and writing skills are required.

TO APPLY:

Please submit a C.V. and a Statement of Purpose (maximum 2 pages) outlining your goals for the residency, and any past or current projects that have led you to cultural investigations around HIV/AIDS.

Applications are due November 17, 2016. Applicants will be notified by December 14, 2016

The one-month residency must take place between March 1 and March 31, 2017

Fashion photography Prize. Deadline: Dec 1, 2016

PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION CALL FOR ENTRIES
Submission deadline : December 1st, 2016
Download regulation on http://www.villanoailles-hyeres.com
Information : enquiry.photocompetition@villanoailles-hyeres.com

Every Spring in the South of France, the Festival spotlights young promising artists in the fields of fashion and photography. The festival proposes diverse exhibitions, professional panel discussions and three competitions. These competitions highlight ten fashion designers, ten photographers and ten accessories designers, who are selected by a jury of professionals in each field. The work of the selected artists is presented to the jury members and general public during either fashion shows (for the fashion designers), a group exhibition (for the photographers) or a group exhibition and a video (for the accessories designers).

On the last days of the month of April, as every Spring since 1997, the villa Noailles will once again become the epicenter for emerging photography.

There, in the photography section of the Festival de Hyères, ten artist-photographers will exhibit their personal conjugation of the verb to see. Hyères defends and praises photographic works that strive for sense, singularity, innovation and uncompromising artistic standards. The bodies of work spotlighted at Hyères are still being born. Yet, the articulateness of their aesthetic stances confidently allows us to bet on their projection into the future. Attentively sorted and short-listed, an imposing lot of nearly 800 worldwide submissions is put under the scrutiny and appraisal of an international jury of professionals that gathers, late January, in Paris. The jury’s choice of the ten photographers to showcase sets in motion an exacting curatorial and production process that will culminate shortly in the unveiling to the public, on the walls of the villa Noailles, of an exciting group exhibition: ten new artistic visions that will help shape the photography of tomorrow.

During the three days of the festival, the selected photographers meet to discuss their exhibited work and ongoing portfolios with the members of the jury. Art dealers, museum curators, art critics, art directors for magazines or advertising agencies, among past Festival jurors we can randomly mention Urs Stahel (Fotomuseum Winterthur), Marloes Krijnen (FOAM, Amsterdam), Dennis Freedman (W, New York), Charlotte Cotton, Glenn O’Brien, Marta Gili (Jeu de Paume, Paris), Jörg Koch (032C, Berlin), James Reid (Wallpaper*, London), Frits Gierstberg (Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam),
Kathy Ryan (New York Times, New York), David Campany (London), Joerg Colberg (Conscientious), Charles Fréger (photographer, France), Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, Amsterdam), Brett Rogers (The Photographer’s Gallery, London), Karen Langley (Dazed, London), Winfried Heininger (Kodoji Press, Switzerland), Damien Poulain (Oodee, London), Jason Evans (photographer, United Kingdom), Mutsuko Ota (IMA, Tokyo), etc. Agents, art dealers and art directors, all eager to meet new talent, also attend the Festival. The Hyères meetings between artists and jurors render possible an in-depth discussion – elsewhere highly improbable – about the photographer’s work and its potentialities. An intellectually intense exchange between photographers and key figures of the artistic and commercial spheres, these one to one meetings have often proved fruitful opening for the photographers the doors to different media, from the pages of a magazine to the walls of a museum or an advertising campaign.

PARTNERS
The Festival is organised by the Association villa Noaillesand has been financed through the support of the City of Hyères, since its creation in 1986, and since 2003 by the Communauté d’agglomération Toulon Provence Méditerranée, with the support of Direction Régionale des Affaires Culturelles (ministère de la Culture et de la Communication), of Conseil Régional Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, of Conseil Départemental du Var.
