AR & VR ART WITH SUTU AND PAISLEY SMITH 

Course dates - 19/06/2019 - 24/06/2019

When Google's Tilt Brush launched in 2016, digital artists hurled themselves at it - with its powerful control of textures, volumes and geometry, Tilt Brush was rapidly proven as the most versatile tool around for creating immersive virtual reality artwork, environments and experiences. The same year, Bjork launched "Bjork Digital", her ground-breaking exhibition of 360-degree VR music videos accompanying tracks from her album Vulnicura. It was a pinnacle year for VR, but Google were stepping into a rich, existing scene - artists had been working towards the creation of VR works since Morton Heilig's Sensorama (1956), Myron Krueger's VIDEOPLACE (1975), the StereoGraphics company's experiments throughout the 80s, SEGA VR and Nintendo Virtual Boy in the 90s, and the arrival of sophisticated and lightweight VR tech in the early 2010's.

The current generation of hardware and software allow for the fast, fluid creation of VR worlds (and the insertion of AR elements into the real world) which can be mass-experienced, blurring the limits of gaming, reality, storytelling and art. Reality can be seamlessly augmented with digital artworks, distinct virtual realities can be networked, shared and adapted by audiences, the artist becomes world-maker, the audience is no longer passive; in this brave new world, art does not reflect life - art forms the myriad worlds in which life takes place.

Sutu (aka Stuart Campbell) uses art and technology in new ways to tell stories. He has been commissioned by the likes of Marvel, Google and Disney to create VR art for properties such as Doctor Strange and Ready Player One. He has also created three VR documentaries; Inside Manus for SBS, Mind at War for Ryot Films and The Battle of Hamel for the Australian War Memorial. He's known for his interactive comics including Nawlz, Neomad, Modern Polaxis and These Memories Won't Last. He holds a Honorary Doctorate of Digital Media from Central Queensland University, is a 2017 Sundance Fellow and is the co-founder of EyeJack, an Augmented Reality company.

Paisley Smith is a Canadian filmmaker & virtual reality creator based in Los Angeles. She created Homestay, an interactive VR documentary produced by the National Film Board of Canada Interactive, with Jam3. She received the 2018 Sundance Institute and Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Fellowship for her forthcoming VR experience "Unceded Territories", a collaboration with acclaimed artist and VR pioneer Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun; she's a visiting artist at USC's Mobile & Environmental Media Lab, led by Scott Fisher, and is admin of the thriving Women in VR/AR Facebook group.

Over the course of the week, this workshop will follow two twin trajectories - split into small groups, participants will divide their time equally between two different but complimentary sides to the VR/AR creative process, working towards the creation of new work, formation of new collaborative relationships, and honing of VR painting and creation skills.

Sutu will lead sessions in VR painting using Tilt Brush, exploring the painting process, filming the resulting work, and outputting 2D and 360 films. He will show how 360 content can be exported to 3D formats, for further use in other programs such as Unity. Advanced techniques covered will include creation of 3D scans for import into Tilt Brush.

Paisley will lead participants through a world-building process, where details of your story-world are established. From the basic seed of a world, brought to the session by each participant, Paisley will help you to imagine what that world would look like in VR, working to create a prototype of the world using real-life model making techniques before moving into VR.

You don't need prior experience of VR to take part - by the end of the session, you will have developed the skills, tech knowledge and increased imaginative potential to create new VR worlds, artworks and narratives.

PRICE €1299 - grants, bursaries and discounts available

INCLUDED IN THE COURSE FEE: FIVE DAYS OF CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES, A COMFORTABLE PRIVATE ROOM AT CAMP, ALL MEALS - BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AT CAMP, DINNER AT AN EXCELLENT LOCAL RESTAURANT, UNLIMITED USE OF OUR RECORDING STUDIOS, EDITING SUITES, REHEARSAL STUDIOS, LIBRARY AND OTHER FACILITIES, POST-COURSE BENEFITS & SUPPORT

Art & Activism with Adbusters, Brandalism And Center For Political Beauty

Eligibility:

NESTLED IN THE FRENCH PYRENEES AT 750M ALTITUDE, 10KM FROM THE SPANISH BORDER AND SURROUNDED BY SNOWCAPPED PEAKS, WATERFALLS AND FORESTS, IS THE PICTURESQUE THERMAL TOWN OF AULUS-LES-BAINS. IN THE TOWN, HOUSED IN A BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED 19TH CENTURY HOTEL, IS CAMP - THE FIRST OF A NEW BREED OF ARTS RESIDENCY.  CAMP RUNS A SHORT SERIES OF FIVE-DAY ARTS, MUSIC, WRITING AND ARTS-ACTIVIST SESSIONS.

THE COURSES COMBINE WORK IN OUR WELL EQUIPPED FACILITIES WITH PROJECTS CARRIED OUT IN THE MOUNTAINS 

Climate change, Trump, Brexit, the rise of the right wing, increasing poverty and the increasingly desperate thrashing of late-stage capitalism - the old debate of the artist as societal mirror or social pioneer is becoming more and more obsolete as the reality becomes clearer - there is no political art, there is no activist art - all art is political, all art is politically active. The only question is - what kind of social statement is the artist making? The production of decorative canvases intended to adorn the walls of the wealthy is an active social statement. The creative hijacking of corporate advertising and communications is another.

This session will examine the responsibility of the artist in our epoque, and the opportunities for protest and social change available to active, creative individuals and collectives. It will be carried out by three of the most dynamic collectives active in the diverse fields of humanitarian / anti-capitalist / anti-corporate art: Adbusters, Brandalism and the Center for Political Beauty.

Brandalism is an international collective of artists that challenge corporate power in public space around the world. Corporate advertising influences every aspect of our modern lives: from how we feel about ourselves; our bodies; our understandings of gender, race and class; through to our perceptions of others and the world we live in. Building resistance and resilience to corporate power is at the heart of the culture wars in the 21st century so with nothing more than high-vis jackets, special keys, and shared creative principles we create the world's largest ad takeovers that hold corporate power to account. Read more about Brandalism here: http://brandalism.ch/manifesto/

Brandalism will share tactics and approaches that allow diverse artists to hack the city, challenge corporate power, and get away clean. Expect a deep dive into a range of forms of critical public art and the socio-political history of each. We'll explore solo vs collective actions, subversive tactics and more. Brandalism will also provide practical (action-led) trainings, ensuring participants have a range of resources that enable all participants to begin hacking the city where they live.

Adbusters is a global network of artists, activists, writers, musicians, designers, poets, philosophers, and punks trying to pull off a radical transformation of the current world order. Our media foundation publishes a bi-monthly magazine and invents cultural campaigns that explore the erosion of the mental and physical environment by commercial forces. 

"To resist evil is the highest achievement of human life." - Chris Hedges

As artists, you hold the power of persuasion and perspective changing. Through visual communication, you influence the way people think, feel, and act. How will you employ your skills for radical good and resist the pull of the corporate consumerist tide? Dayna Mahannah and Maggie McPhee are the campaign and project managers at Adbusters magazine. Their recent campaign, the First Things First Project, zeroes in on the ethics of the design industry and its responsibility to humanity, the economy, and the environment.

Adbusters is keen to express, through this workshop, theoretical and actionable skills inspired by the themes of expectations (and the value of subverting them), non-linear chronology (structural anarchy), and responsibility. Using the FTF Project, as well as historical and contemporary design revolutions, as examples of small scale resistance with huge impacts, you will be accoutred with the knowledge to culture jam any space. Together, we'll examine the effects of design & visual art - both good and bad - and how it exists in and narrates every facet of our lives. Find out more at abillionpeople.org

The Center for Political Beauty (ZPS) is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. The group's basic understanding is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and cowardice. It believes that Germany should not only learn from its History but also take action. For their part in the session, ZPS representatives Gabriela Langholf and Lotta Dorte will work with the group to form new ways to put humanistic ideals into action, looking at the ZPS's past works and intellectual foundations, then taking the results forward to create new concepts and help participants bring their own ideas into action.

DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY - EXILE, MIGRATION, FOREIGNNESS

DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY -  EXILE, MIGRATION, FOREIGNNESS

This artist in residence programme will run alongside a major exhibition entitled ‘ODYSEES’ that we are hosting in partnership with the Abattoirs Museum - Frac Occitanie, Toulouse. ‘Odysees’ is part of the programme ‘Je suis né étranger’

Artists : Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Julien Creuzet, Ninar Esbar, Bouchra Khalili, Nil Yalter

“Je suis né étranger” - “I was born a foreigner" is an outreach programme of exhibitions organised by the Abattoirs, and based on the exhibition "Picasso and Exile - A history of Spanish art in resistance" at the Abattoirs, 15 March - 25th August 2019. Each exhibition is unique and articulated in relation to the specific history of each territory and its public, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Retirada.

The residency programme is two fold - Drawing Research and Mediation.

We want to give selected artists the opportunity to develop their work alongside a major exhibition featuring several recognised international artists whose work reflects contemporary stories of exile, articulating a personal and a collective story.

Artists are expected to establish a dialogue between their own artistic practice and that of the current exhibition. How does the viewer perceive contemporary art and engage with it and others.

Artists will also have the opportunity to show  their own work and offer workshops, artist talks etc in compliment to the ‘ODYSEES’ exhibition programme

We are interested in creative people who would appreciate the opportunity for cultural exchange and sustained concentration in a supportive professional studio environment, in order to develop their artistic practice by engaging in new perspectives, experiences and challenges.

Proposals are invited from visual artists for whom drawing plays an important part in their creative practice. We would encourage a residency period of two or three months to make the most of this opportunity, the minimum period would be one month.

DRAWinternational set out some years ago to celebrate drawing ‘for itself’ and ‘for others’ i.e. as it relates to other representational media. Our artists-in-residence programme attracts artists who wish to extend their professional practice and theoretical understanding, with the very issues reflected in contemporary society. That is, through human endeavour, reflection, discourse and action. These artists come from many different countries and bring with them many diverse experiences, but all have something in common, a humanity and a passion for drawing.

We work with architects, designers, writers and professionals in the applied and fine arts. Our provision is both theoretical and practice based, working with artists when required, assisting them to be more objective, thus distancing themselves somewhat from the aesthetic object. (The Phenomenology of Aesthetic Experience, 1973, Mikel Dufrenne).

The centre for drawing research is situated in the heart of Caylus, a small medieval village in SW France, a rural community with a growing number of artists and craftspeople.

DRAWinternational A-i-R programme continues to expand notions of drawing:

to cater for creative people in pursuit of new and dynamic form, in preparation for exhibition, publication or postgraduate qualification and support artists in their professional practice/research.

Artists are selected on the quality of their residency proposal, its relevance to DRAW's philosophy, the environment and evidence of previous artistic work.

The centre organises events such as, exhibitions, open workshops and seminars/presentations, to promote it's activities, share creative experience and opportunities within the public domain.

Accommodation/studio/workshop facilities

Artists are accommodated in self catering apartments with private rooms and shared kitchen, bathroom, dining/sitting room and gardens at ‘l'Ancienne gendarmerie’.

Artists are allocated individual studio spaces to suit particular project requirements at the "gendarmerie" with unlimited access.

Academic support and access to relevant documentation.

Regular discussion of work to include individual and group critiques and practical workshops

Organisation and promotion of an event at the beginning/end of the residency for the public. Editing and translation of written text.

Cultural Program (visits, meetings and other facilitated activities together)

Support for artists to encourage integration within the community.

Internet access (wifi) for personal laptops.

Fees

The DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY - EXILE, MIGRATION, FOREIGNNESS is partially funded.

Residency fee 1750 euros, selected artists will receive a stipend of 850 euros. Therefore the fee per month is 900 euros.

DRAWinternational is an independent organisation initiated and sustained without any public or private support or sponsorship.  Our commitment is to DRAWing research, the artists and our public for which we have to create our own resources.

International Festival of performances 2019

Festival international des performances 2019

La performance est un genre aux frontières mixtes, se déclinant dans sa richesse interdisciplinaire entre les arts visuels, les arts de la scène, les arts vivants. Hérité des traditions postmodernistes des années 1960 , la performance interroge les aspects principaux de la mise en scène, mettant en avant le corps. L’espace et le temps sont mis à l’épreuve par les corps des « performers » qui envahissent la scène vivante sans limites avec leur public. Cette immédiateté de la création en mouvement fait de la performance un genre caractérisé par une liberté dépassant les conventions des techniques de représentation. Comment peut-on représenter le performatif ? Question inhérente au genre. Le festival international de la performance invitera sous la forme d’un concours de performances les performers internationaux les plus aguerris pour mettre en pratique la conception du jeu envisagé par Tennesse Williams dans ses notes de production de La Menagerie de verre : « when a play employs unconventional techniques, it is not or certainly shouldn't be, trying to escape its responsability of dealing with reality or interpreting experience, but is actually or should be attempting to find a closer approach, a more penetrating and vivd expression of things as they are »

Le concours de performances aura lieu au Dansoir et fera se succéder les artistes internationaux dans une interaction vivante avec le public. Des installations, sculptures et expositions de peinture seront intégrées au festival. Des conférences ponctueront cette succession d’événements artistiques éphémères.

Le festival sera présidé par Michael Lam, fondateur de Vision Art media à New-York. Parmi les membres du jury, figurera le critique d'art italien Alain Chivilo
