THE SELECTION PROCESS (SPONSORSHIP GOAL: $100,000 FOR ARTISTS)

The leading judgment criteria for any artist interested in participating in the Global Conversation art exhibition is to tell a story, transport knowledge, give community perspective, create to emotionally captivate and last but not least, make the intention to make an impact with your art. Thus, we're calling all artists who are radical in spirit and willing to express their right to freedom of expression to the nth degree. We insist that you dive into these issues fearlessly as the above directly and indirectly effects each of us. Take this international open call as an opportunity for Artists who operate outside the box and care deeply about relevant issues to take the global stage. We want to trigger ambitious action, peaceful solidarity and practical solutions around the UN mandate for their 75th anniversary. This special year is about creating the largest global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future we all want. We want to raise the role of Artists in society and create a vehicle for the artists we curate to be invited to take part in discussions on a local and global level about social, political, ecological and infrastructural issues through art. Good luck to you all!

Join hands with F.99 and sponsor by giving artists all over the world the opportunity to create meaningful art pieces that can lead towards practical solutions. Estimated attendance during the tour exhibition will be over 2 Million+ as the impressions will come from 7 art exhibitions in 7 months from 99+ artists in 7 different continents.

The first round starts at the UN General Assembly September 15th, 2020.

JAMAICA FLUX 5TH EDITION CALL FOR NEW YORK ARTISTS

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) is now accepting submissions through March 28, 2020 for Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2021 . JCAL seeks proposals from artists to research the neighborhood of Jamaica, Queens, in 2020 for the presentation, and possible creation, of new, site-specific, public art projects that engage the local community in 2021. 

Not confined by gallery walls, Jamaica Flux is a contemporary public art project in which visual and performance art are displayed at a variety of locations along Jamaica Avenue in Queens, NY, including public and private open spaces and storefronts. With the intent to build equity and expand cultural inclusion throughout Southeast Queens, Jamaica Fluxstrives to commission and present art that involves the local community and creates changes in behavior and policy while also documenting the developments and contradictions that arise in the process.

First conceived in 2002 as a pilot program addressing the isolation of the art gallery from the community, Jamaica Flux has evolved with the community in every iteration to reflect the pressing issues of the times and to advocate for social change through the arts. Now in its 5th iteration, Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2021 is dedicated to advancing research and visual and performative actions that foster social change, critical public discourse on advocacy, policy change, economic growth, collective civic action, and community engagement. The project aims to bring artists, local residents, curators, scholars, community leaders, developers, and politicians together to catalyze the transformative power of the visual arts, building on the cultural legacy of Jamaica while addressing the challenges of a quickly growing local economy.

This is an exciting time for Downtown Jamaica, and we believe this iteration of Jamaica Fluxis timely to document the rapid changing neighborhood and to be a platform for artists to voice concerns and advocate ideas. Artists living in New York City are eligible to apply, and all media is welcomed.

Prizes Details: 

Artists will receive $500 for their research that involves dialogue and collaboration with local businesses, sites, and/or social organizations around Jamaica Avenue. Research outputs (drawings, renderings, photographs, video, text, interviews, maquettes, mark-ups et. al) will be exhibited in the Miller Gallery at the Jamaica Arts Center, from May 14 through July 10th 2021.

Depending on available funding, the artists will receive additional support of up to $2,500 to materialize their visions of creating new, site-specific, public artworks, and present their project to the public in the physical site proposed, along with related programming in 2021. A published print catalog will be produced and distributed both on- and offline following the exhibition in 2021. 

Deadline: 
03/28/2020

Entry Fee:

How to Apply: 

With dedicated support for under-recognized artists and disenfranchised arts communities, a total of 15 artist research projects that meaningfully explore the themes of Jamaica Fluxwill be selected by the Curatorial Team, with support from an Art Advisory and Community Committee. Selected artists will be required to attend three meetings with the Jamaica Flux team and a variety of community members for research guidance from June to December 2020 (meeting dates TBD). 

Selection Criteria

Conceptual rigor, artistic quality, and potential impact

Feasibility of the proposed research and creation of the final artwork

The ability of the artist to conduct the proposed research in the set timeline

The Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL) invites NYC-based dance companies and choreographers to apply via open call for the 11th Annual Making Moves Dance Festival 2020 ~ Switchin’ It Up (MMDF2020). 

MMDF2020 offers paid performance opportunities for 11 choreographers on both the indoor and outdoor stages of the Jamaica Performing Arts Center on Friday, Sept. 25, 2020 and Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020, with an Outdoor Kickoff Party on Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020.

MMDF2020 will not only showcase new, emerging and underrepresented professional choreographers, but we’re Switchin’ It Up by providing an additional way for creative choreographers and dance artists to represent the diversity that is Queens and NYC: an open-style, live-juried, audience-participating Community Dance Battle set for Thursday, Sept. 24, including a pot of money and prizes to the winner. The Dance Battle , followed by our season kick-off Dance Party , is free and open to the public.
 

Program Timeline : The open-call application portal will be active as of Feb. 10; the deadline for applications is April 15, 2020. The jury will meet in May 2020. Selected groups will be notified by early June 2020. Calls of inquiry regarding the status of an application will not be returned.

Eligibility : MMDF2020 is open to emerging and underrepresented NYC-based choreographers and companies with bold ideas and a progressive/contemporary nature.

Applicants must be NYC residents as of the application deadline or can demonstrate a significant, documented track record of artistic activity in NYC. Queens residents receive preference for all opportunities.

 

Selection Criteria : Applicants will be chosen based on the strength of their submitted work; quality samples are important. MMDF2020 jurors and JCAL's Director of Programs and Artist Services will base choices on clarity of choreographic vision and artist statement; ability of the artist (through visual aid, written or another form of communication) to share the choreographer's commitment to purpose, aesthetic and technique; a performing company of quality that is trained to represent the work of the choreographer; and a demonstrated desire and ability to share their work and vision.

MMDF2020 Offers Four Opportunities for Choreographers and Dance Companies:

The commissioned choreographer will provide dancers, costumes, lighting, props, etc., out of commissioned funds.

Emerging Artists : Up to four emerging and/or underrepresented professional choreographers and groups will receive a stipend of $800 to present a 15 to 25-minute piece on the indoor stage on Sept. 25 and 26.

Deadline: 
04/15/2020
How to Apply: 

Applicants for the MMDF2020 open call are determined through a formal juried process. Jurors are cultural leaders representing the diversity of NYC and selected from the dance and performing arts communities. JCAL’s commitment is to showcasing the diversity of NYC culture, especially through its Building Equity platform, which emphasizes inclusiveness and tapping into the often underrepresented immigrant and indigenous artists within the African, LatinX, Asian, Arab, and Native American (ALAANA) communities. 

Choreographers working in all dance genres are encouraged to apply for MMDF2020. April 15, 2020 is the deadline; early submission is encouraged.

All choreographers, dance artists and companies -- including, but not limited to modern/contemporary, physical theater, ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theater and folk traditional/inspired -- are invited to apply. Applications will be viewed by a jury of leading professionals and added to the archives of JCAL for future curatorial consideration. Each group can request to be considered for more than one opportunity, but each selected group will only be awarded one opportunity. Please make sure you select all areas for which you'd like to be considered. All groups will be provided with 3 to 6 hours of rehearsal space the week prior to MMDF2020 and access to JPAC stages for one dress rehearsal and one tech rehearsal prior to the day of the event. 

Pre-Deadline Application Workshops : We will offer two application workshops, on Wednesday, March 25, 6:30pm, and Wednesday, April 8, 6:30pm; both are open to the public. We’ll review the application process and answer any questions that might arise. Requests for feedback on applications will be offered after selections are made.

Loretta Kaufman to Exhibit in NAWA’s “Small Works Winter 2020” Exhibition

Share

Category:

Country:

Loretta Kaufman’s acrylic painting “Animated Forms IV (Family Group III):  Series M” was selected to be part of Small Works, a National Association of Women Artists’ (NAWA) Exhibition in February.  The exhibition was open to NAWA members and non-members who are US citizens and permanent residents.

No larger than 15” x 15” x 5”, the 63 artworks include paintings, photography, prints, mixed media and sculptures. Captured in this year’s exhibit is a demonstration of artistry in the use of design and color which allows the observer to share in each artist’s creative process. These are truly small creations with big perspectives. The exhibition runs from February 5 – 26, 2020 at the NAWA Gallery, 315 West 39th Street, Suite 508, New York, New York.  Gallery hours are Tue-Fri from 10 am to 5 pm with a reception on February 13th between 5 to 7 pm.  NAWA can be reached at 212-675-1616.

NAWA continues its long history of nurturing and inspiring talented, visionary and dynamic women artists from throughout the United States. Founded in 1889 by five brave and innovative women who were barred from full participation in the male dominated National Academy of Design and the Society of American Artists, NAWA’s existence is a testament to the integral and essential role of women in the art world.  Documented exhibitions are archived within the Smithsonian Institution archives.

In nearly five decades Nashville sculptor and painter, Loretta Kaufman, has produced work in several media that focus on the environment.  Loretta’s work has been juried into many of Fusion Art’s international exhibitions and won awards for both her sculptures and paintings.  In 2018, “Kingfisher With Minnow & Dragonfly: Circle of Life Series” was one of 3 paintings included in Artist’s Choice. The painting went on to receive the Cecile Adler Cliffer Memorial Cutting Edge Award in the National Association of Women Artists 129th Annual Members’ Exhibition in New York City in October 2018.  Also in 2018 Loretta’s clay sculpture, “Double Monologues I:  The Celia Series”, was exhibited in NAWA’s Small Works in New York and went on to win an Honorable Mention in Fusion Arts’ Women Artists.
