REAKTOR Potenziale | Call for Concepts 2023/24

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall and on concepts using sound as an important element.

The chosen artists will be invited to further develop their concept and to plan its practical implementation and realisation supported by REAKTOR’s team. The resulting work of art will be showcased to the public within an exhibition or other suiting format of presentation in February 2024.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Selection criteria:

- Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.
- A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.
- Preference will be given to concepts using sound as an important element.
- Site specificity | Optionally a dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture, acoustics and/or content).
- Feasibility | Budget, public safety

bildingship

Type:

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

“bildingship” is a working fellowship for young artists aged up to 31 years, to use bilding as space for their own artistic work as well as actively engaging in the regular workshop programme for the duration of seven months (prolongation to one year is possible), including part-time employment (maximum income 450€ per month). The aim is to convey the concept and working methods of bilding to the artists, while at the same time, imparting artistic processes directly to the children and adolescents based on the artists on-site work, to establish mutual ties and to promote and expand international discourse in the field of art and cultural mediation with young people, based on the practical experiences gained at bilding.

“bildingship” is intended to expand the artistic spectrum offered in the continuous programme as well as enabling a new artistic approach to special fields of art that are hard to fill on site. For bilding, young artists represent an important and complementary link to the children and young adults. For many young creatives, they facilitate a natural close relationship, which dismantles potential barriers in the professional exchange and provides a basis for an ideal working atmosphere. During the “bildingship”, the artist is given the opportunity to present his/her own work in an exhibition on site. This allows an expansion of the artists own range of activity, as well as offering the young bilding creatives an opportunity for gaining first-hand exhibition experience.

“bildingship” is intended to get the artist acquainted with the regional artistic and cultural scene while facilitating contacts to local artists. The aim is the use of bilding as a studio on the one hand, and an opportunity for artistic exchange with young people and local artists on the other.

“bildingship” is projected for the span of 7 months and can be prolonged for another 5 months
Period: July 2023 – February 2024

bilding – Kunst- und Architektur Werkstatt für Kinder und Jugendliche Amraser Strasse 5a 6020 Innsbruck Austria

LNR Open Call. Online exhibition

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Most of the Kunstmatrix adopters were seen in 2020; indeed, the program dates back to around 2008. I began curating online only in 2020, during the first wave of COVID. Even though it now seems that everyone has returned to the physical again, for me this „new“ discovered love has remained – sitting a couple of evenings in my office, playing and thinking about online exhibition displays, giving a line to the selected paintings in the online architectures, highlighting, or even hiding artworks on digital walls. For 2023, we have decided to make an open call.

Do you have an idea, a series of works that deeply explore a theme, a thread, something that doesn’t let you sleep?

Start of the open call: 20 December 2022
Deadline of the open call: 21 February 2023
Announcement of the selected artist: End of February 2023 – Exhibition will take place in April 2023

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us – mail@les-nouveaux-riches.com. We are looking forward to your submissions.

Love. Your LNR Team
