A Voyage of Absurdity

Share

City:

Eligibility:

There is this idea(l) of the artist creating art for art’s sake, living la vie bohème, being envied for their freedom and creativity and having the liberty to express their individuality as they please. Is this actually the case though?

Being a practising artist does not necessarily mean one’s life is effortless and without any obstacles along the way. Taking the (often subconscious) decision to become an artist comes with costs. Living in a world where the humanities and, in particular, the arts, are not favoured by the wider socio-economic system as a fruitful financial ecosystem indicates that the majority of people working in the creative industries will have to find alternative means of supporting themselves financially, while, simultaneously developing and working on their creative practice. Countless external factors hinder many artists from reaching their full potential by limiting their existence. Thus, unavoidably, they are drawn to making a considerable number of sacrifices in many aspects of their lives.

In this exhibition, we invite artists who have experienced this type of dualities in their professional journey, having to juggle between different realities, and thus, separate lives, and who want to participate by exploring how the various stimuli from this contradiction have fed back into their work. We want this to be a multisensory event, calling to all people of all backgrounds to apply and look into how their work has been affected by the additional efforts that they have had to make in order to make ends meet, as well as how they imagine their futures will unfold. The purpose of this exhibition will be to reflect on the truths of the people in the creative industries and to pave the way for repurposing the art world with more care and collectivity.

International artists are encouraged to apply, but new guidelines (after Brexit) need to be taken into consideration.

Creatives of all mediums are asked to submit their work, showcasing the complex character of their realities through their art.

"UNLOCKED” PROJECT 2021-OPEN CALL.

YOUNG ARTISTS’ ONLINE SELECTED EXHIBITION

Artists are invited to submit their works for an online project and exhibition organised by Emergent Art Space in collaboration with the emergent artist/curator Maria Di Gaetano.

-ABOUT EMERGENT ART SPACE

Founded in 2012, Emergent Art Space is an international non-profit organization based in San Francisco, California. Its mission is to give exposure to young artists around the world and to promote cross-cultural dialogue, exchange, and communication through art. We welcome artists in all fields of visual arts, still in school or under 30.
We believe that the visual language of art has the power to communicate across geographic and cultural distances, to open new perspectives on our experience of the world, and to facilitate the understanding of experiences and traditions different from our own.

-ABOUT “ULOCKED”

“Unlocked” is an experimental project which intends to create synergies among young artists, breaking barriers of time and space, reality, words, and media, giving space only to the intrinsic meaning of art as an intuitive and aesthetic way of knowing, - that involves mind and feelings and - it is worldwide shareable. Being in lock down has had a strong impact on our social and economic life but first and foremost in our way of dealing with our emotions. A similar strong impact will have the end of the lock down - in the near future. Lots of people feel drained and oppressed and even scared about the future. “Unlocked” aims to catch an emotional moment in between the end of the lock down and the beginning of the new “normality”. “Unlocked” wants to recognise, extrapolate, and transform feelings into art and communication. 

-PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

5 artists will be selected based on their 3 works submitted.
The weekend after the selection we will have a zoom meeting to know each other and start the project together. Time to be agreed with the artists.
We will try to discuss and work with these questions:
-What is art for you?
-How did you experience the pandemic?
-Is it true that Art “cleans from the soul the dust of every day’s life?”
-Are you concerned about the next future?
-What kind of feelings did you experience during the “lockdown”?
-What kind of feelings are you experiencing now after the “lockdown”?
- “Unlocked”. What does this word mean for you? Let’s define it. -reality -art -barriers -freedom.

-WHAT WE WILL BE DOING:

As the idea was born during the uncertainty of the post lockdown, - it was thought best to – develop it online. It would be great therefore, to meet up all together in person later on or when the restrictions will ease to put our creative minds together under the stunning London’s sky!
Taking the questions above as - guideline, this project will ask you to examine and assess your own feelings and thoughts in relation to your life, the way you make art and how we can express them. -We will be working together, creating, and operating as follow:

1. We will create a private group on Facebook among us, in order to easily get in touch and be reachable.
2. We will develop an artistic research practice based on open talks on Zoom to know better the way we think, create, and work.
3. No strict time, media or exercises will be imposed, but as little as punctuality and reliability will be asked in order to make sure everything works well for everyone and the project will go ahead smoothly.
4. Since the project aims to put together words and creativity, we will be writing some small texts and creating some artworks.
5. The concept/theme we will be working on will be around the meaning of being “Unlocked”.
6. Instructions will be given to everyone, but on-going ideas or changes from the artists will be discussed and eventually considered.
7. The meetings will last 2 weekends. Ideally Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. Time to be agreed. It would be great if we stick with these days although flexibility will be given according to our own needs and it will be discussed and agreed on by - all participating artists.
8. At the ends of our 2 weekends’ meetings, we will all have - an additional 2 weeks to prepare ourselves for the online exhibition. The content of the exhibition will be all or some of our works, our texts put together as a small catalogue/magazine and one of two of our zoom meetings (if everyone agrees). Everything will be shared on the Emergent Art Space website, which is supporting this project and
cultural dialogues among artists from all over the world. Everyone will be free to share the link to their own website, social and platform. A participation certificate will be given to everyone.
9. The 5 artists who will be working on this project will be then invited to be part of the amazing world of the Emergent Art Space’s platform.
10. I hope you will be joining me. Free yourself and relax! We will be a bunch of people who love art and want to communicate something with it to the world

Seeking submissions! 

We’re Non Space and since most galleries are still closed, we’ve decided to host a virtual exhibition online. We’re currently seeking submissions and would love to see your work!

THE EXHIBITION 

Brave New World 

We have lived through a year of turmoil. A year of lockdown. Normal is the new abnormal. How are we. How are you? How am I. How is the world. What do we envision. What do we fear. What have we lived through. Who do we blame. Who do we look up to. What do we want?

The exhibition theme is open for interpretation. We want to explore the feelings that we have experienced during a year when everything changed. What have we been through and what do we wish to see in our future? 

We close for submissions on the 26/4. Submit up to five works. Submitting your work is free, but once final art selection has been done, all participating artists pay £5 in admin fee. 

All mediums are welcome, but needs to be able to be photographed well to fit into the virtual exhibition space. 

The exhibition will be launched on Thursday 13/5 and stay open until 13/6. 

For any questions please send us an email on non_space@outloook.com

Follow us, tag us, connect with us on Instagram: non.space.collective 

We really (really!) look forward to see your work. 

Much love, 

Non Space
