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.

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 .

Submission categories
There are two categories for submission:
Photography (still images only)

Each year, the festival focuses on a specific theme, encompassing photography, multimedia, talks, performances and research. This year’s festival theme intends to explore the concept of “Fluid Identities” in the context of the constantly changing state of today’s world, both physical and metaphorical, and on all its reflections, on environments, people, societies and cultures, investigating their changing boundaries. Considering the role of photography as a tool for documentation and expression, this thematic framework brings together a variety of projects, combining a social awareness with an aesthetic dimension. Each proposal should contain a series of 8-12 images. These works can be about “Fluid Identities” in its wider interpretation or work unrelated to this year’s festival theme.

There are two ways in which you as an artist, curator or organisation may submit:

Shaping Public Space. Moving Cityscapes
October 25th – November 2nd – 2013
Stavanger, Norway




*** We are looking for Video art / animation / visualization: short (max 5 min) and presentable without sound to be screened in shop windows or on outdoor facades in public space. ***

Screen City is dedicated to the moving image presented in public spaces, on the city`s facades, shop windows and urban venues, enlightening and changing the vision of the urban context of Stavanger. The program will experiment with the reshaping of public space through Media Art, presenting a program of video art, animation, experimental short films, creative data visualizations, projection mapping and participatory urban media interventions.

The city of Stavanger is currently going through a rapid city development meeting challenges of gentrification and conflict of interests. Our point of departure, for both content production and as sites for screenings are the many areas with development potentials currently in the middle of an urban transformation, which we think need careful identity and community building. How can artistic interventions guide and support reflection on this process by giving voice to different parties and ideas? What fears are there and what kind of city do we dream of and want to live in?

We invite artists and filmmakers to reclaim the city, challenge the concept of public space and use it as canvas for story telling urban visions. Lets rethink, imagine, visualize, animate, transform cityscapes and activate Stavanger’s neighborhood through the moving image.

We especially welcome works that explore issues along these lines:
– Inspiring innovation around the artistic expression through moving image, in its relation to public space and cityscapes
– Enlightening the future vision of the urban context of Stavanger
– Creating spaces for joint experiences and formation of Identity and a living local memory
– Creating public awareness by criticism, reflection on processes of urban development
– Revealing a strong message to create a process of exchange and discussion
– Exploring cross-disciplinary skills and experimental production techniques

ARTIST FEE: 500 Euro

Selected artist’s works will be shown during the festival week, starting October 25th until November 02nd 2013.

Please fill in our special submission form and send us:
– CV, still image, film preview, using following formats: pdf/doc/mov/jpeg


Please submit your work before March 1st 2013 – to the following email: contact@screencity.no
using the subject: “SCREEN CITY open call – (your name)”
