Dance on Film Festival. Deadline September 28.

Country:

Eligibility:

We seek short dance-films that not only show excellence in this genre, but also have connections to site-specificity, architecture, and/or sculpture as well. For 2022, we are particularly interested in screen-dance exploring environment, climate change (and all that entails), earth, clay, mud, soil, ceramics, fragility, histories, etc. We are interested in how site-specific films can be connected through those themes with two exhibits at Grounds For Sculpture: Fragile: Earth by The Color Network, which frames artists’ reflections on social, environmental, and individual perceptions of fragility through the unique materiality of clay and ceramics and The Village Potter by Roberto Lugo.

The festival is open to filmmakers and choreographers everywhere who identify as women or a marginalized gender. We strongly encourage the BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and Disabled community to apply.

The Outlet Dance Project is an annual festival of artists sharing their vision through site-specific dance and film at Grounds For Sculpture – an internationally renowned contemporary sculpture park. In its 18th year, it is one of the largest, most popular, and well-attended dance festivals in New Jersey. The festival celebrates the intersections of visual and moving arts, exploring relationships between sculpture and dance, between place and movement.

Location: 
Grounds For Sculpture 80 Sculptures Way Hamilton, NJ USA

Out of the Darkness

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum invites artists in all media (except video) to submit work(s) for an 11-week group exhibition during the 2021 season.
 
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented changes in our world and, much like other events such as The Great Recession of 2008, the impact of the current pandemic will continue to be felt for years to come.  Acknowledging that art can convey ideas which words cannot always express, this exhibition aims to shed light on how artists are responding to the crisis and its aftermath.  The theme, out of the darkness can be interpreted as both a woeful as well as a hopeful message – can be build back better, how will we use our newly acquired knowledge to prepare for future crises, will we unite at this critical junction or continue to tear into our fellow man because of political and ideological differences?  Any of these questions and more can be proposed and answered by work submitted to this show.    

Deadline: 
29/January/2021

$30 for first two entries; $10 for each additional entry
