Though often divisive and inflammatory, we can't avoid politics in today's world.
 
The intrinsic beliefs and opinions that shape us as human beings can almost always be seen in a political light.
 
For our show this month, we seek art that express all things political, regardless of party or belief systems.
This exhibition hopes to explore our continued political discourse with the use of imagery to make the point of our current state of the nation.
 
The artwork may be literal of a politician or political issue or opinion, or it may be figurative and interpretive. It's political, but we value all beliefs and the manner in which these can be expressed, artistically.

Public Art RFQ Natural Resources Agency and Health and Human Services

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The State of California will implement a permanent Public Art Program in Sacramento in conjunction with two new build projects, the New Natural Resource Headquarters, and the Health and Human Services Building. The Public Art Program aims to inspire world-class public artworks, engaging diverse voices in shaping our civic spaces. It is an opportunity for artists to create within the rich contexts of the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA), California Health and Human Services (CHHS). 

Four unique public art commission opportunities are open to artists through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). A short-list of artists will be selected from the RFQ respondents and will be invited to participate in a funded proposal round, Request for Proposals (RFP). The final commissions will be selected and awarded from the proposing artists. 

We encourage artists to take time looking at each opportunity and applying to the commission that best suits their interests and practice. Artists may apply to more than one commission opportunity but must apply separately to each. Artists should submit Statements of Qualification (SOQ) with artwork samples and letters of interest relevant to the specific commission to which they are applying, even when applying to multiple commissions. We invite artists to engage critically with the mission of the California Natural Resource Agency and California Health and Human Services, as well as the vision outlined in the Public Art Plan.

0.1% exhibition at NAVEL

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

As part of the upcoming program 0.1% organized by Dr.Yewande Pearse, NAVEL is looking for artworks, texts, as well as scientific projects that demystify how genomics inform identity. We are looking for artworks, ranging from sculpture and 2D work to video, film, text, sound, performance, AR/VR, immersive and/or participatory projects, that address the sociopolitical and/or psychological implications of readily available genetic information.

Our DNA – the script of our lives – is 99.9% the same across the human species. But differences in the remaining 0.1% hold important clues to who we are as individuals – a reality that begat the “quantified self” movement. The movement, also known as lifelogging, describes the trend towards using technology to acquire data on aspects of a person’s daily life, with the goal of improving physical, mental, and/or emotional performance.

Genetic information acquired by consumer testing companies like 23andMe can illuminate inner resources and limitations, functioning as a kind of oracle into the secrets of our bodies, identities and individualities. Still, many questions remain unanswered in regards to the impact of such inquiry on notions of the self and the socio-political.

0.1% explores what it means to uncover the genetic roots of who we are and who we could be. This week-long program demystifies how genomics inform identity, with an exhibition of works selected through an open call, the release of a Massive x NAVEL collaborative zine, an installation by neuroscientist and philosopher Dan Lloyd, discussions of scientific papers, and talks by influential figures whose work grows in the delta where hard science meets the arts.
