Residency Kourmania Open Call. Deadline: July 01, 2016

Since 2009 the artist collective Medea Electronique has organized an annual 10-day experimental artist residency, Koumaria, near Sparta in Greece (the village of Sellasia), focusing on improvisation and new media practices. New-media artists from all over the world, inspired by the Greek natural landscape, come together to create a multicultural and cross-media ‘dialogue’ culminating in a collective presentation both locally and in Athens at the end of the residency.

For our 2016 residency the theme concerns cross-cultural collaborations, migration and borders, culminating in a performance/presentation of the residency artistic outputs as part of a conference/performance series at a major venue in Athens on this theme.

It is worth emphasizing that Koumaria’s focus is collective art creation. While individual residents may well have projects in mind that they hope to realize at Koumaria, they should expect, and desire, substantive input from other residents, and be open to having their projects morph considerably during the course of the residency. While the final output we present need not be one long collective piece, and while the projects forming our outputs need not all involve all residents, Koumaria is not the place for the development and presentation of solo works.

-Deadline: July 01, 2016
-Residency Theme: Diasporas in Dialogue: Multiculturalism, Migration and the Improvisatory Imagination
-Looking for: dancers, performers, video artists, installation artists, sound artists and composers of electronic music.

Video and animation art call, Toronto. Deadline: April 1, 2016

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The concept of materiality is in question. Digital media, once thought by artists and scholars alike to be fundamentally intangible, has been demonstrated in recent years to have very real effects on the physical world. The transformation of data into engaging, interactive formats (online gaming, mobile software, networked art) has shown that digital media distributed across networks has the power to educate, to connect, to visualize a politic and produce emotional response. This [Inter}web of relations functions mimics key properties of another technological achievement: textiles. Ironically, one of the human race’s oldest technologies serves as the perfect metaphor for its latest inventions. And, as the digital age marches on, artists and industry alike must consider the possibility of ‘digital textiles’. What terms will define the digital textile? Is a digital textile purely light and numbers, or is it hybrid—straddling virtual and physical space? What does the evolution of textiles from analog to digital media imply or reveal about the narrative of human progress?

Subtle Technologies seeks submissions of video art and animation that explore or expand the definition of the digital textile and speculate its future. Selected videos will be presented in the program Cloaked In Code and will be screened in Toronto on May 13th, 2016 during Future Proof, a wearable technology fashion show as part of the 19th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival.

Selected applicants will gain critical exposure to influential Canadian makers and thinkers as well as leaders in the Toronto fashion and wearable technology communities. The Cloaked In Code program will also be accessible to an international audience, hosted on the Subtle Technologies website from May through August, 2016.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

To apply download and complete the Cloaked In Code application form.

You may submit up to 5 hyperlinks to videos or animations for consideration. Please enclose any necessary information for password-protected files.

•    Along with your application form, please submit the following:
•    Artist statement, précis or summary of research interests (250-500 words)
•    A recent bio
•    An up-to-date C.V.

Deadline: Friday April 1st, 2016

Selections will be announced and applicants notified on Monday, April 18th, 2016.

Call for entries for the “I Can’t Breathe” exhibition. Deadline: October 10, 2015

In November/December 2015, ARC will present “I CAN’T BREATHE”,  an exhibition juried by Mary Patten and Romi Crawford, PhD.

Having endured a year in which video after video has appeared, showing shocking violence by police against unarmed citizens, ARC wants to begin a conversation about these events. The videos have forced all of us to address our ignorance and denial, as well as to ask even bigger questions about the nature of institutionalized racism. ARC is looking for work that evokes what it feels like to find oneself targeted, in a suffocating space, or unheard. This also includes work that addresses how one might imagine that grip to be loosened, or what it might look like to begin to listen.

ARC GALLERY AND EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION is a non-profit, woman-run cooperative gallery dedicated to providing alternative space exhibition opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery system. Since 1973, ARC has given exposure and support to both men and women artists, providing an atmosphere for the continued development of artistic potential and experimentation.

SUBMISSION
Believing that all voices are valuable as we learn to listen to each other, this juried show is open to anyone who wishes to apply regardless of ability to pay. ARC asks for a donation by those who feel they can contribute.

Workshop with Nicolás Combarro in Manila. Deadline: May 8, 2015

The recent history of contemporary photography and the photobook has undeniably been shaped by Spanish photographers, curators and bookmakers. After the fabulous workshop with Cristina de Middel and Ricardo Cases in India, this time it will be Nicolás Combarro in Manila.

Nicolás is the man who helped Alberto García Alix include video in his work, and a curator involved in Contemporary Spanish photography. As an artist, he uses lens-based and other media in a virtuous dialog, to create installations and interventions in the public space. But most of all, he is an incredible teacher who will show students how to find their own way of expressing themselves in their art, how to go from the single image to a body of work, how to compose a coherent narrative, and how to present all this, in a professional way, to curators and the public. In other words, if you sign up for this workshop, be prepared to forget pretty much everything you knew and take some good days of rest before, because it will be very very intense.

NICOLÁS COMBARRO is coming to Manila to give a MASTERCLASS WORKSHOP from May 19-22 .
