Call for entries for the international exhibition "Towards a critical rurality"

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Rural Design concept derives from the need to develop a new gaze that interprets the territory in a dynamic way, focusing attention on the connections within an organism and between organisms. This gaze is capable of advancing concrete planning proposals, immediately expendable, but also implementable over time.

Specifically, the design must be oriented by ecological and systemic criteria.

The designer (in its broad sense) must conceive production processes in which the output of one system can become another’s input (circular economy) and elaborate visions and plans that take into account the whole system that generates processes, products, services and environments, as well as the flows of materials and energy between the different phases that distinguish their life cycles, favoring the use of renewable or low environmental impact resources and a proper end-of-life treatment. Until a few years ago, all these aspects were not taken into account in the design practice.

In this new scenario, new images of the agricultural environment are elaborated: not only as a place for material goods production, but also as a source of symbolic goods

Nature, the main producer of the symbols of this environment, is the foundation for a new conception of rurality and to redefine city-countryside relationships. By being aware of the complexity of these processes, we are also forced to confront the generosity and fragility of nature itself. In this framework, cultivating – in its broadest sense of managing the soil seen as a common heritage and of primary activity for human existence – deserves special attention and requires a critical reworking of the rurality itself.

PURPOSE OF THE CALL FOR ENTRIES

Artists, designers, architects, start-ups and researchers from all over the world are invited to participate in this call, by sending works which adhere to this redefinition of rurality, investigate the relationship between the urban and the peripheral areas, as well as  those between human activities and natural cycles. Candidates are invited to confront and engage, primarily, but not exclusively, with the resources typical of the Matese area – raw materials, production waste, construction techniques, local crafts – that will host the first edition of the Rural Design Week.

The participants in the exhibition “Towards a Critical Rurality”, part of the first edition of Rural Design Week, regardless of the resources – natural, economic and socio-cultural – that will be used for their works, can contribute to the following categories:

Category A: Rural design / systemic design objects

Category B: New naturally-based materials

Category C: Projects or processes inspired by the principles of circular economy and systemic design.

All the selected works – e.g. artifacts or products, installations, new materials or processes – will be exhibited (or realized in situ, in agreement with the authors/designers) in the Municipality of San Potito and in the surrounding areas.

VISITS: For those interested, the proponents of this call will be available to conduct visits of the territory. Visits can be booked until 19 April, to do so please email us.

Indigenous Public Art Commission

WALKER ART CENTER LAUNCHES CALL TO ARTISTS FOR INDIGENOUS PUBLIC ART COMMISSION

MINNEAPOLIS, JANUARY 16, 2019 — The Walker Art Center announces the launch of an Indigenous Public Art Commission, a project inviting artists’ proposals for a new public artwork for placement in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden or a location on the Walker campus planned for the fall of 2020. This initiative evolved from a series of commitments the Walker Art Center made with Dakota elders in a mediation process in 2017 connected to the removal of artist Sam Durant’s work Scaffold from the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. Proposals are being accepted by the Walker through a Call to Artists, released today. Proposals for public art projects will be reviewed by the Walker along with an Indigenous Public Art Selection Committee, a group of Native curators, knowledge keepers, artists, and arts professionals—including individuals of Dakota descent and enrollment—based in Minnesota and nationally. The group is working collaboratively with the Walker Art Center to shape the commission process, review applications, and select the final proposal. “I look forward to working with the Walker staff and Indigenous Public Art Selection Committee to bring a new public artwork to the Walker campus or Minneapolis Sculpture Garden,” said incoming Walker Executive Director Mary Ceruti. “This project builds on the commitments the Walker has made to the Native community and I am excited to see the proposals and further the conversation.” Artists interested in submitting original proposals for this public art project are encouraged to consider working in a range of materials. Projects may be proposed by individual artists or collectives. Artists with in-depth knowledge and understanding of Dakota culture and language are encouraged to apply.

The deadline for artists to submit applications is April 15, 2019. Once applications have been received, the Selection Committee and the Walker will identify three semifinalist artists. Semifinalists will be offered a fee to prepare more detailed proposals, from which one project will be chosen for the commission. When a final proposal is selected in the fall of 2019, the Walker will support the selected artist or collective in the production of the work, from technical development to engagement. The Walker will work with the selected artist to facilitate the fabrication of the commissioned artwork in the chosen medium, which must be durable and suitable for display outdoors. The selected artist will have a year to complete the project, and the goal is to install the completed work in the fall of 2020. Upon completion and installation of the commission, the artwork will formally enter the Walker Art Center’s permanent collection. Below are important dates related to this Call to Artists and Selection Process: January 16, 2019: Call to Artists Opens April 15, 2019: Application Deadline June 17, 2019: Semifinalists Notified September 16, 2019: Selected Artist Announced Fall 2020: Public Artwork Installed and Unveiled (date to be confirmed) Free Information Sessions & Workshops For artists seeking information or other support assembling their applications, four information sessions are offered.

About the Walker Art Center/Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

The Walker Art Center is an interdisciplinary contemporary art center committed to supporting the creative expression of artists and the active engagement of audiences. The museum, located near downtown Minneapolis, is situated on land shaped by glaciers more than 10,000 years ago. The area was once an expanse of marshland used for hundreds of years as a seasonal camp by the Dakota and Ojibwe people. In the late 1800s, the site held an armory and parade grounds. Formal gardens and a series of sports fields were established here in the early 1900s. When the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden opened in 1988 as a collaboration between the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board and the Walker Art Center, it was one of the first major public/private urban sculpture parks of its kind in the United States. The Wurtele Upper Garden, a landscaped hillside expanse adjacent to the Walker, is the newest outdoor space on the Walker campus and includes pedestrian walkways, sculpture, and sites for public events.
