Open Call: Fibre

Eligibility:

Open Call: Fibres

Seeking artistic responses to the theme of Fibres.

​Textile making traditions spans global cultures as one of the earliest human technologies. It has been a staple in industry, fashion, craft and decorative arts throughout the ages but it particularly made a resurgence in the 1960s back into the contemporary art world. Since then Fibre and textile arts have been developing new forms and language -becoming more conceptual and cross-disciplinary, even into this digital age.

​We're are seeking works that explore (but are not limited to) the following areas:

  • Textiles (Fibre art, Ecology, Upcycling, Craft, Natural vs Synthetic materials, Traditional vs contemporary methods of making, Materiality, Cross-disciplinary art)

  • Technology (Fibre optics, making and machinery of modern textiles, video/film, animation, VR, 3D printing, digital responses to textiles and fibres)

 

We are particularly interested in works that cross over between the two but this is not essential. Works can explore their own themes but there must have a link to the idea of textiles, materiality or fibres in some form.

​This will accumulate in a group exhibition that will explore the the relationship between textiles and technology; between the ecology and the digital that will take place in March 2023.

​£5 per piece to enter. Deadline to apply: 4th Feb 2023

Frame Rush 2023

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Frame Rush, London’s annual screendance festival, returns to The Place for its 5th edition this spring.

The festival is organized by the postgraduate students of screendance, currently the only Master’s program of its kind in the world. As a cohort, we are interested in exploring the boundaries of movement-focused filmmaking.

Frame Rush welcomes dance films from every part of the globe, in any genre, from documentary, comedy, animation, narrative or experimental. We strive to make the event as inclusive as possible, and actively welcome films from all backgrounds and communities.

Frame Rush also invites non-screendance filmmakers to re-examine their work and discover if dance is already present in their films. We aim to challenge the conceptions of screendance to further expand the field.

If your financial circumstances prevent you from entering a film that matches the festival call, please contact us explaining your circumstances and we can offer a waiver.

Location: 
The Place, 17 Duke's Rd, London WC1H 9PY, London
