1st Prize: The possibility of a new world order

"This call for ideas is not about perpetuating protests; it is about empowering them."

Storefront for Art and Architecture is making a call for submissions for projects and strategies that offer a new, creative and productive way of spatial occupation for public demonstrations and actions in cities throughout the world. Gathering expertise from the various acts of civil occupation throughout the world during the last months, we ask architects, artists and citizens at large to offer their ideas for enabling acts of communication and action between the civil society and the structures of economic and political power.”


ReGeneration deadline extended to May 16

The deadline for submissions to ReGeneration has been extended to May 16.

Proposals for ReGeneration can be for gallery installations or public projects on the grounds of NYSCI or in surrounding areas for the duration of the exhibition or for one-week modules exploring a particular concept or idea. Six of the projects will be juried based on this open call, three for installations and three for workshop modules. Collaborations are encouraged but should be confirmed with a letter of support in the application. More information here.

Art in odd places – call

Art in odd places - A festival exploring the odd, ordinary and ingenious in the spectacle of daily life.

Art in odd places. A festival exploring the odd, ordinary and ingenious in the spectacle of daily life.

Art in Odd Places aims to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas.

Art in Odd Places’ seventh annual festival will take place for the fourth year on 14th Street in Manhattan. AiOP is an art festival placing visual and performance art into the public realm, engaging pedestrians and passersby. AiOP’s mission is to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas. We would like the curators to focus on the idea of Ritual and the concepts of ceremony, habituation. myth, obsession, liturgy. Selected artists should reveal in their work how these notions permeate our everyday life.

There is no curatorial honorarium. AiOP is an artist-initiated grassroots all-volunteer project and no one is paid, though this year we are applying for grants to not only cover festival costs but to have a modest honorarium for everybody in the team. Honorarium will depend on funding. This position requires enthusiasm, good humor and a collaborative spirit and provides, in return, the chance to place your stamp on the festival! Art in Odd Places will provide advice, postcard invite, program guide/map, website, marketing, PR, and general liability insurance for the festival. Please visit artinoddplaces.org for past festival projects, press and submission requirements.

Deadline is February 15.

Open call for networked art

Turbulence.org and Pace Digital Gallery announce an Open Call for Networked Art to be commissioned for the exhibition Turbulence.org @ PaceDigitalGallery 2.

The curators are seeking works that address the notion of “Levels | Hierarchies”, as in chains of command, levels of play, stages of life, degrees of comfort... Pace Digital Gallery is, itself, distributed across three floors of a building; within a broad stairwell to be precise. Practitioners are required to address the theme according to both the physical space and the distributed space of the Internet, where the works will permanently reside.

The photos should be taken in the area north of I94, south of Pierce Butler, East of Emerald Street (two blocks west of Hwy 280) and west of 35E.

The University Avenue Project

The University Avenue Project, produced by Public Art Saint Paul, is an extraordinary, large-scale public installation of hundreds of photographs that reflect the incredible diversity of its neighborhoods–taken by Wing Young Huie–that are exhibited along six miles of University Avenue in Saint Paul in store windows and on sides of buildings.

Project(ion) Site

The centerpiece is the Project(ion) Site where a giant, outdoor slide show of Wing’s photographs are projected on a 40 foot screen, accompanied by a soundtrack from 40 local musicians. The last Saturday of each month, we invite local talent to take the stage for The University Avenue Project Cabarets.

Conceived by Steve Dietz of Northern Lights.mn and designed by Meyer, Scherer and Rockcastle, Ltd. (MS&R), the site is built from cargo containers.  2 large towers along the edge of University provide for projection of images that will be visible for a mile in each direction.  Entering the site, visitors can view the nightly show that will be projected on a 40 foot screen.


Map me if you will

This is an open call for Pixelache Helsinki 2011

“By the mere fact of living an ordinary modern urban life, we produce a huge amount of information about ourselves that we are hardly aware of, nor we usually see or make use of. Through this data we become traceable, accessible, predictable — and clearly enough — ideal clients of information-based capitalism. So if we cannot prevent the production and the corporate or governmental use of this data without changing our lifestyle completely, how can we at least benefit from it ourselves? How can we share this information with the society at large or the community we live in to our common advantage? And how could we even build systems ourselves that collect data for our own purposes?”

The deadline for proposals is Monday 8 November 2010. The application form can be found here.

“Concurrently, the complexity of human actions and interactions increases with the accumulation and growing capacity of the digital tools we are using. We may therefore better understand what’s going on around us if we find ways to visualise and interpret the data which we produce. How can our processes and the correlations of our actions be represented in meaningful and inspiring ways? Are there inventive ways to visualise/represent data that go beyond the pure digital and turn abstract data into concrete entities/objects?”

“map me if you will” is a programme devised by guest curator Susanne Jaschko. Susanne is a Berlin based independent curator of contemporary art with a focus on public and experimental art and digital culture. Her most recent project was the Process as Paradigm exhibition in Laboral Centro del Arte in Gijon, curated in collaboration with Lucas Evers. In addition to her independent work, she has previously worked at the Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam and as a curator/deputy director of transmediale festival for art and digital culture in Berlin.

The first day will be a more intensive building workshop with a core group of design students (max 15) and the second day will be open to the public.
