UNEXPECTED SPACES PUBLIC ART RESIDENCY 2020

Calling artists with a public art practice! 

Greywood Arts is awarding a four week residency 22 August – 20 September to support development of a public art project in the rural East Cork village of Killeagh. The residency provides accommodation, workspace, project support and a stipend of €1,500 to a visual, performing, multi-disciplinary or other genre of practicing artist whose project is experienced in the public realm. This year, the residency precedes Ireland’s nationwide Culture Night (September 18th) and we hope to celebrate the public art project that evening.

Unexpected Spaces aims to support an artist working in the public sphere while increasing access to art in the community of Killeagh. The artwork created during the residency should be situated or presented in the public sphere, or should be experienced from a public space. The public art residency is one component of the project, which will also offer public art themed workshops for different community groups. Unexpected Spaces is made possible by support from Cork County Council. Stipend to cover materials and living expenses, allocated at the discretion of the artist. 

This year, Unexpected Spaces will tie into Culture Night, Ireland’s annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts on Friday, 18th September. https://culturenight.ie/

While we are completely open regarding the theme, topic and medium, the project should be responsive to the setting and context of the village.

Believe Her: Digital Poster Show

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Description

Poster design has been used by women throughout history to advocate for equality and share messages. If you identify as a woman and have faced harrasment or discrimination, or have felt silenced because of your gender share your story. Design a poster about a time you felt silenced, posters can be any medium and any size. Posters will be reviewed and featured in an digital poster exhibition designed to help women's voices be heard.

Background

In 2017 during the peak of the Me Too movement I designed a poster as a way to work through my discomfort as the overwhelming number of stories about harassment broke on the news and social media, everywhere I turned it seemed that there were more stories coming to light. As someone who has been a victim of harassment this time made me reflect upon my experiences as well as think about how many women’s stories go untold, behind the thin veil of what has been deemed socially acceptable to talk about were hundreds of women who had stayed silent. For me designing that poster was cathartic and helped me to work through some of the discomfort I was going through. It made me consider the many voices who weren’t believed when they told their stories, and the ones too afraid of the consequences to share theirs. What if poster design could help these voices be heard and believed? I am hoping to collect posters and curate an augmented reality poster show to help women share their stories, and hopefully this process will be as beneficial for them as it was for me in 2017.

Call for curator AUDITORIUM 20/21 lecture series

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

For the new edition of the AUDITORIUM lecture series, Stad en Architectuur vzw is looking for a curator who can create a programme centered on this edition's topic “OUTSIDE”. AUDITORIUM 20/21 will run from October 2020 to April 2021 in the STUK Arts Centre. Stad en Architectuur vzw is inviting interested candidate curators to apply.

Auditorium 20/21

Stad en Architectuur vzw has been organising the AUDITORIUM lecture series since 2001 in cooperation with the STUK Arts Centre and the department of Architecture of K.U. Leuven. This series has been bringing together a wide range of experience and expertise and centres around a common theme. International design and architecture firms present through their own projects answers to major social and cultural challenges facing the world, and in particular Flanders as well.

The series will feature a mix of renowned designers and up-and-coming architectural talents on the verge of their international breakthrough.

The central theme “OUTSIDE”

With the current 19/20 edition focusing on “HOME”, our next AUDITORIUM 20/21 will take a step outside. The next AUDITORIUM lecture series will be centered on the theme “OUTSIDE”.

While life seems to take place on the inside of our homes, as much of our everyday lives itself is happening on the outside. There is no inside without outside. The buildings where we live, work and pass by every day are grounded and founded in the outside world. This fundamental spatial character of architecture makes that it cannot be seen as something secluded.
The “outside” is part of a broad social debate. In an overcrowded world, which is becoming more and more urbanized, we are facing many challenges that require a drastic shift in how we deal with the outdoor space.

How do architecture, landscape and urban design deal with the concept of "outside"?
The outside that is built, the outside that is untouched.
The outside as a private place, the outside as a public space, the outside as a landscape.
Where are the confinements between insides and outsides? What responsibility does architecture bear towards the outside? What is the significance of the outside in an urbanized landscape? What does it mean when looking at architecture from the outside, as an outsider?
What’s on the outside?
The theme ‘OUTSIDE’ is merely a trigger for the curator to start working with concepts on architecture in relationship with the outside, which he translates into a relevant, coherent list of speakers. The theme for this lecture series functions as a connection in an international context and leaves ample space for variation. Guest speakers not only show experimental design, but also tangible results through completed projects.

What part does the curator play?

The curator develops and organizes a lecture series of six lectures in total in the STUK Arts Centre in consultation with Stad en Architectuur.
