About the festival:

ITINERANT was created in 2010 by interdisciplinary artist Hector Canonge. The initiative was a small platform for Contemporary Performance Art, and had its origins in the monthly series A-Lab Forum that Canonge organized at Crossing Art Gallery in Flushing, Queens. Following the growing interest in Live Art, and the need to present performance programs in the borough, ITINERANT was launched in 2011 under the auspices of QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development. In 2012, ITINERANT was recognized by the City of New York as the first Performance Art festival taking place in the five boroughs (Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island) that make the metropolitan region. Following the large scale venture in NYC, Canonge journeyed through Europe and Latin America creating, in 2013, the Spanish edition of the festival and calling it Encuentro ITINERANTe with public presentations in various cities in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2015 the festival featured 30 artists from over ten countries with presentations at the Queens Museum, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Momenta Art, Glasshouse ArtLifeLab with Public Interventions at 37th Rd. Pedestrian Plaza, and at Manuel de Dios Unanue Triangle Plaza, in Queens, NYC.

 

The latest edition of the festival took place in 2018 with the participation of local, national and international artists whose works were featured at the Queens Museum, Bronx Museum of the Arts, and the performance art venues: The Last Frontier, Grace Exhibition Space, and Panoply Performance Laboratory. The festival’s closing event was marked by public performances at the historical landmark of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, site of the 1939 and 1969 World’s Fairs.

Please note that as an independent artist-run initiative, ITINERANT is not able to pay honorarium, reimburse the cost of travel and/or accommodations or any related expenses. However, the festival provides “capital-intrincic value” by giving artists unparalleled visibility and exposure by fostering the production and presentation of works in important venues in the United States, Europe and Latin America.

Performance Residency for non-UK-based artists at Gasworks, London. Deadline: March 4, 2013

Performance Residency

1 June 2013 – 1 September 2013

Call for applications for Gasworks’ first ‘event’ focused residency

Open to any non-UK based artist

Deadline for application: Monday 4 March 2013
This new residency at Gasworks aims to support the development of art practices that might not normally thrive within existing residency models.

Applicants are invited to propose a series of exploratory works with public outcomes. We are looking for experimental practices, innovative and experimental approaches to contemporary performance, and proposals that question contemporary understandings of these terms.

With this new model, the residency can be less studio-based with process instead taking precedent, in the form of a series of ‘events’ or public outcomes, illustrating stages of work-in-progress. The resulting works could take the form of interventions, community or socially engaged projects, performances, workshops, ephemeral works, happenings, lectures, presentations, theatrical productions or other event-based activities.

Application

The residency is open to non-UK based contemporary visual artists, including those with curatorial practices, working in any medium.

Applicants working in pairs or small groups may apply, but please note that the residency provision covers the costs and space for one artist to undertake the residency, so any extra financial support required will need to be secured by the applicants themselves.

Applying artists should have a good level of spoken English, and should feel comfortable engaging in artistic discussions in English.

Before applying, please read the Information and Guidelines for application, downloadable here.
Applications should be emailed to:

Call for Submissions for Sensate Journal. Deadline: Sept. 30, 2012

Call for Submissions – Sensate Journal for Experiments in Critical Media Practice

Sensate is a new online interdisciplinary journal publishing works of critical media practice. It is currently accepting submissions from academics, scientists and artists interested in working on collaborative projects which cross the boundaries between research and making.

Building on the groundswell of pioneering activities in the digital humanities, scholarly publishing, and innovative media practice, we believe in creating a space for redefining the terms in which such collaborations can be presented, articulating modes of working that are derived from artistic practice with revised standards for peer-reviewed academic production. It is with this goal in mind that Sensate aims at publishing innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences, providing a forum for scholarly and artistic experiments not conducive to the printed page.

Call for Submissions and Reviews

Exploring new ways to archive, curate, and organize academic multimedia scholarship, Sensate invites submissions of scholarship and art not conducive to the printed page. We encourage submissions that creatively bridge research and media-based work, and aim beyond an illustrative relation between text and image towards both solid and innovative modes of scholarship and artistic practice.

The integration of form and content is crucial to our mission and thus rather than a list of guiding questions (which seek answers) we would like to offer a list of possible approaches that demonstrate efforts to unite form and content and to provoke inquiry through creative combinations of exposition and expression.

We are currently seeking work in any of the following categories/disciplines: artistic research, visual arts and artistic practice, history of technology and the media arts, visual anthropology and sensory ethnography, digital humanities, sound studies, media archeology, digital collections of audio and/or visual materials, digital cartography, performance and its documentation, imaging scientific research, and creative data visualization. We also welcome submissions that extend beyond these possibilities.

Sensate pieces may rework or expand traditional scholarship in a media rich context, or provide a space to remediate artistic projects in a new form. See our collection of published works at sensatejournal.com.

We are also seeking reviews for films, events, books, exhibitions, and performances. Please visit our blog, Sensate.tumblr.com, for updates on calls for specific reviews.

Submissions are due by September 30th.
Please use the Chicago Manual of Style for all citations.

Please submit articles via our article submissions form, and reviews via our review submissions form, both found on our website, SensateJournal.com.
