Fantastic Beings: Body Sculpting & Assemblage Workshop

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

In the Fantastic Beings workshop, Spanish multidisciplinary artist Iria Do Castelo will teach you how to build a human-like sculpture using plaster bandages, homemade paper mache, clay and found objects. The workshop is designed to give an opportunity to participants to improve their creative process and explore new paths of sculpture and assemblage together with an established artist.

The workshop is suitable for anyone, artist or not, from 18 and above. All materials will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring along curious objects that they may wish to incorporate into their sculptures. Registration is required.

SomoS presents the Fantastic Beings workshop that is held by Iria do Castelo as a way to highlight the imaginative opportunities that are possible when sculpture, assemblage and the body come together. Inspired by Gothic art, eroticism, dreams and the dark depths of the human psyche, in her own work, do Castelo creates perverse and disruptive settings in which sculpture draws on emotion rather than formal rules. What often emerges from do Castelo’s creative process are fantastical creatures that bear resemblance to human figures. With do Castelo as a guide and teacher, participants of the Fantastic Beings workshop will be led to replicate their own bodies, transforming their moulds into new non-human, biomorphic compositions with the aid of assemblage techniques.
The possibilities are infinite.

Fantastic Beings workshop
Saturday-Sunday, December 7-8, 10am-6pm
60 euros for both days, including material (can bring additional objects)
Language : English

The workshop is open to anyone, artist or not, from 18 years and above. Please register by sending an email to somos@somos-arts.org

Exgirlfriend Berlin Annual Open Call

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Exgirlfriend is now accepting proposals for our 2020/2021  exhibition cycle.

Submissions will be accepted from October 2nd, 2019 until December 10th, 2019. No late proposals will be accepted. All proposals should be submitted digitally in PDF format. Only PDF submissions will be accepted. PLEASE email us first for the complete rules and guidelines for a submission before sending any application materials.

Exgirlfriend is a contemporary gallery and artist studio space located in the Alt-Mariendorf neighborhood of Berlin. Founded and curated by Elena Feijoo, we are devoted to exhibiting artists from all backgrounds, generations, dispositions and disciplines. Exgirlfriend focuses on conceptually rigorous work that is not limited to traditional modes of making. We intend to create a reputation for blurring the line between project space and commercial gallery. For our 2020/2021 season, we will host 5 exhibitions, each determined from our open call. We believe the format of the open call is a great equalizer which benefits our space as much as it gives new opportunities to a much larger scope of artists. Our goal is to support artists by presenting high quality and daring exhibitions and through marketing, promoting, and selling their work. For more information on our exhibiting artists and our previous programmes, please see exgirlfriendberlin.com

The space contains one large 150 sqm exhibition space & a renovated kitchen/bar all within our sister non-profit company, HER. HER is a 1,000 square meter hall hosting artist studios and artist co-production spaces. We also host a series of artist presentations, visits, talks, and curated events which can coincide with our main exhibitions.

 Exhibitions

Exhibitions run for 3 weeks unless otherwise specified and agreed. The reviewing process will start in December at the end of the open call and the announcements on exhibition decisions will be made in January. Our first exhibition will begin in August 2020. Everyone will receive a decision by the end of January. 

If your proposal is in the final round of considerations, you will receive an email from our staff asking to organize a meeting either in person or via Skype. If selected, we will contact you to welcome you to the 2020/2021 year with a package of information and details regarding your potential exhibition and to determine a time slot. 

Once Exgirlfriend accepts a proposal, we put much of the decision making into the hands of the artists, giving artists and curators the freedom to actualize their ideas in a physical space. Our managing director will work one on one with each group or artist to execute the exhibition in the best way possible. Although we are a commercial gallery (we do suggest applicants take that into account) we have always exhibited typically non-commercial presentations such as installations and site specific works. 

Proposals

Proposals should clearly articulate and present (1) an exhibition idea which strongly considers the gallery’s aesthetic focus and physical space and (2) the current work of the artist/s. It should not focus on artist’s past work or experience, although a CV is required. 

Specificity and clarity are key (!)

All artists involved must provide a website with up to date examples of their current work.

Proposals will be judged on quality/feasibility of exhibition proposal and quality of artist’s recent work.

Please specify in headline of email along with desired time of year(Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter 2019 etc) whether you are applying for a:

- Solo exhibit

- Two person exhibit

- Curatorial project

- other

If an artist would like to submit their portfolio or a certain body of work for consideration to be curated into a show arranged by the Exgirlfriend curatorial board, this is also accepted. Proposal focus should then be on specific project or body of work.

Gears up to travel Ocean deep 2020 - Deadline Nov. 7th, 2019

 

Having just caught our breath from exhibiting our Art/NaturSci Pavilion at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, an official of the 2019 Venice Biennale, we begin with new call outs for 2020:

 

The Ocean deep exhibition program is in development to travel to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Trieste, Italy and Swiss locations, with the possibility of landing us, once again, at the Venice Biennale in 2021. 

The world's oceans are 80 - 90% empty of life formerly observed. Overfishing and pollution from pesticides used in unsustainable farming practices, and other nonsensical ventures valuing production over function, brought us here. Alongside captivating artworks, we plan to present real life solutions on how to begin to manage this devastation of the deep. 

Participating artists will be provided with letters of invitation. Our letters have helped many international artists find sponsorship from universities, communities, galleries, and/or countries. Participants in our former exhibitions traveled with us to the 2019 Venice Biennale. Many of these artists found support via our recommendations, to come to Berlin and to Venice with their work, and many continue professional relationships with us worldwide. 

Deadline: 
11/07/2019
