OPEN CALL FOR ARTIST: ​The Penitentiary: Battery Project

The Penitentiary: Battery Project is holding an open call for local artists for its August 1st opening.

They are looking for artists who are interested in transforming Patarei Prison, located in Tallinn, Estonia, while still reflecting upon the space’s past.

The Penitentiary is a collaborative umbrella project by artists Marina Andrijcic-Ojeda and Catarina Ferreira. Under this title the artists will operate a series of independent, site-specific art exhibitions to take place in abandoned war-era prisons throughout Eastern Europe. They will create personal works as well as curate that of other international artists to instill an open dialogue of national memory through creative action. With this unity of worldwide culture, the project will explore what it means to be democratic; to possess the privilege of free speech; to live a life where expression is encouraged and government is overtaken by the hands of those who thrive in these same freedoms.
As a span of dictators and regimes have occupied this region for hundreds of years, in present day the project will shed light on each prison’s overhead political history concurrent to its state of physical abandon. By hosting this series in the very prisons haunted by the Communist era, The Penitentiary will gain first-hand experience of the aftermath impacting nearby communities and their landscapes. The project invites the community to reconnect with these reinvented spaces and introduces the use and availability of unrestricted public art as a means of closure and new purpose.

The Battery Project is The Penitentiary’s first exhibition and will take place at Patarei Prison, located in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. The Battery Project will accompany Estonia’s upcoming art scene to expand creative action.

With largely-projected videos obscuring intimacies of human relationships and the spaces they are shown, experimental sound installations moving through echoing rooms, dangling sheets of paper casting shadows of hand-cut pattern, and angular light sculptures illuminating colored air, The Battery Project will showcase the contrasting translations of Patarei’s history from the hands and minds of multiple artists.

In addition, The Penitentiary will host a program of supporting events to coincide with the exhibition. These events will offer public engagement, education and entertainment to Tallinn’s community with featured screenings, interactive installation, opening and closing receptions and beyond.

For more info: http://the-penitentiary.com

All mediums are encouraged to apply, but preference will be given to sculptural installations..

Two Calls for Papers on photography. Deadlines: Nov. 12 and Dec 10, 2012

First Call for Papers: 39th Annual AAH Conference, University of Reading

Deadline: Nov 12, 2012

CALL FOR PAPERS:
Photography and the Histories of Sculpture:
What role has photography played in forming sculpture’s place in art history?
39th Annual AAH conference and bookfair
University of Reading, 11 – 13 April 2013
Conveners: Henry Moore Institute (Lisa Le Feuvre and Jon Wood)

This session asks: what role has photography played in forming
sculpture’s place in art history? Working across disciplines and
histories of sculpture, exhibition making, museum studies and
photography, this session discusses the formation of art historical
narratives, seeking to unpack past narratives and ask questions of how
future narratives might be constructed. Addressing the role photographs
and their producers have played in articulating sculptures’ meanings
and histories, this session invites papers that take stock of the
impact of photography on the histories of sculpture and its shaping of
understandings of ‘sculpture’ by: communicating exhibitions,
collections and works; distributing, interpreting and fictionalising
sculpture; developing art historical analyses and positions; enabling
research of sculpture.

This session is also interested in analysing the photography of
sculpture as a subject of exhibitions and publications, as seen, for
example, in the exhibitions Close Encounters: The Sculptor’s Studio in
the Age of the Camera (Henry Moore Institute, 2000) and The Original
Copy (MOMA, 2010). Likewise, the artistic treatments of sculpture
through photography are pertinent to the relationship between sculpture
and photography; these changing relations have ramifications for our
developing art historical grasp of sculpture, as it becomes analysed as
much through its representation as through its direct encounter. This
session strives to be trans-historical, inviting papers from academics,
artists, curators and writers addressing early photography as much as
recent experiments.

We invite proposals for 25 minute conference papers. Please submit a
250 word abstract and short CV to Kirstie Gregory (Research Programme
Assistant) kirstie@henry-moore.org

Deadline for submissions is Monday 12 November 2012.  For more details

Second Call for Papers: The Reflexive Photographer

Deadline: Dec 10, 2012

CALL FOR PAPERS
THE REFLEXIVE PHOTOGRAPHER

Edited by Rosie Miller, Jonathan Carson and Theresa Wilkie
(School of Art & Design, University of Salford, UK)

We invite international submissions to be included in this forthcoming
book, to be published by MuseumsEtc (www.museumsetc.com) in 2013.

Submissions
Proposals are welcomed from writers, academics, photographers,
curators, artists and other visual practitioners.

This book will bring together the varied ways in which reflexivity
manifests itself within photography and the photograph.  In this
instance we are taking a broad approach to the term (as evidenced in
the suggestions below), where ‘reflexivity’ is used to describe:

–    The  methods and dialogues that practitioners use to interrogate
their own work; and,
–    The manner in which these devices enable the photographer to
engage in an exchange with the work of others and with the world around
them.

We are seeking chapters that deal with a wide range of issues in
relation to the principle of the reflexive photographer. This could
encompass – but is not limited to – conceptual, cultural, historical
and visual concerns relating to:

•    The historical perspectives of reflexivity
•    The photographer making visual work that is reflexive
•    The photographer writing about and reflecting on their own work
•    The use or affect that the materials of photography (the lens, the
camera, etc.) have on reflexivity
•    The photographer using notebooks and sketchbooks (or equivalent)
as a reflexive tool
•    The use or affect that different types of editing have on
reflexivity
•    The photographer writing about the work of others as a reflexive
tool
•    The analysis of seminal texts from key photographers
•    The interview as a means to reveal reflexivity
•    The examination of reflexivity where more than one practitioner is
at work
•    The use of the photograph as a form of life writing
•    The use of reflexivity in the context of photography in the
digital sphere

Additionally, we are interested in examining different formats for
reflexivity:

•    The book
•    Correspondence
•    The manifesto
•    The blog
•    The diary
•    The travelogue
•    The exhibition
•    Exhibition commentary, interpretation and/or the exhibition
catalogue
•    The photo collective or group

This list is not exhaustive and we welcome proposals on other themes.

Submitting a proposal
If you are interested in being considered as a contributor, please
submit a proposal (using Microsoft Word) of between 300-500 words with
a short biography and CV (which, combined, must not exceed two sides of
paper).

The deadline for submissions is 10 December 2012. Please email your
proposal to books@museumsetc.com. If you have any queries please email
Rosie Miller at r.miller@salford.ac.uk.

Should your proposal be accepted the length of a chapter will be
2000-6000 words or, if you are proposing a visual work, you will have
between 6-8 pages. Please prepare your proposal with these parameters
in mind. The work should not have been published elsewhere.

The book will be published in print and digital editions by MuseumsEtc
in 2013. Contributors will receive a complimentary copy of the
publication and a discount on more.

The Editors
Rosie Miller is a Lecturer and Critical & Contextual Studies Area
Leader in the School of Art & Design, University of Salford, UK.
Jonathan Carson is Associate Head (Academic) and Senior Lecturer in
Critical & Contextual Studies in the School of Art & Design, University
of Salford, UK. Theresa Wilkie is Director of Design & Culture and

Photography Contest on Sculpture, Spain. Deadline: Oct. 31, 2012

This is a rather unusual call, for photography that focuses on Sculpture. I paste the text from the official PDF “BASES DEL CONCURSO” here, so you can run it through a translator and judge for yourself. If you have done photographs of sculptures somewhere, dig them up and send them to the National Sculpture Museum  in Valladolid, Spain.

 

I Concurso Internacional de Fotografía de Escultura
UN MUSEO IMAGINARIO DE LA ESCULTURA

¿Cuántas esculturas no nos conmueven menos que su fotografía?
El museo imaginario, A. Malraux

Desde su invención hasta hoy, la escultura ha sido una fuente de inspiración ideal para los grandes fotógrafos. No sólo por su utilidad para conocer obras inaccesibles o dispersas por el planeta. También, y sobre todo, porque, a través de la elección del encuadre o de la hora del día, gracias al aislamiento de un detalle o de la manipulación del luz, el fotógrafo ha visto en este arte milenario un admirable campo de experimentación que le permitía poner en pie un discurso crítico y estético de una modernidad incontestable.
Asi, la escultura fotografíada ha ido construyendo un museo paralelo al mundo real de las estatuas, un «museo imaginario», que reinventa la escultura y desafía nuestra comprensión.

Concurso Internacional de Fotografía de Escultura
bases del concurso
La Subdirección General de Promoción de las Bellas Artes y el Museo Nacional de Escultura, con la colaboración de la Asociación de Amigos del Museo, convocan el I Concurso Internacional de Fotografía de Escultura.

El Comité organizador se guarda el derecho de aceptación de las obras según se ajusten o no a la temática del mismo.
