"All The Things On Wandsworth Road" - Open Call for Artists

Share

City:

Eligibility:

As part of an ongoing research project, I have been exploring the impacts of large-scale urban redevelopment on peripheral neighbourhoods and communities; specifically, the impact that Nine Elms’ redevelopment has had, and is continuing to have, on residents and businesses along Wandsworth Road.

As a critical reflection and speculative response to the rapid change happening at Nine Elms, and the resulting socio-economic issues it has created, I am organising and curating a small exhibition that seeks to highlight the everyday aspects and qualities of its neighbouring communities. The exhibition – “All the things on Wandsworth Road” – will aim to challenge the modern glamorisation of Nine Elms by, instead, celebrating the unique character and culture of Wandsworth Road and its residents.

Over the last few weeks, I have been engaging with local people and community groups, collecting stories, photographs, films, and other artefacts etc., capturing a picture of Wandsworth Road and its history. This content will, I hope, form the basis and inspiration for an engaging series of works and exhibition that celebrates one of Lambeth’s most diverse communities. 

So, this is an invitation for artistic dialogues and responses... Essentially, I am inviting you to make/provide an artwork that responds to, reflects the issues, and/or touches on themes that I have briefly outlined above. The work will then be exhibited along Wandsworth Road (Sugarcane London) at the beginning of September and potentially beyond. 

The exhibition will offer you the opportunity to meet and network with other creatives as well as members of the local community, engage with the UCL network, and also contribute to an interesting and important project that I believe will have a lasting impact in terms of galvanising community action and support in a politically and socially divisive time.

About Cavendish Arts Science

Building on an extensive history of arts science engagement at the Cavendish Laboratory, the Cavendish Arts Science programme was founded in 2016 by Suchitra Sebastian, head of the Quantum Materials group and is an initiative of the University of Cambridge, Cavendish Laboratory for Physics. 

With an extraordinary history of discovery and innovation in Physics since its opening in 1874, research at Cavendish Laboratory addresses fundamental questions from understanding space and the origin of the universe, to exploring time, matter and energy in all its forms and at every scale, from the very large to the inconceivably small.

Our 2021 Fellowship

In October 2021, moving image artist Logan Ryland Dandridge was appointed to the first year-long Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College. Logan was on a residency in Cambridge between January and June 2022. He brought specific interests in memory, non-linear time and Black experience to his dialogues with physicists.

Logan said: "This is an incredibly ambitious venture and I've definitely been put in a position to extend my practice in ways that I would never have thought possible. I think that is at the centre of this Fellowship. It is such a beautiful and delicate balance to be playing in as an artist."  

For full details of the opportunity and to apply visit our website.

The Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College is made possible through a partnership between Cavendish Arts Science and Girton College, Cambridge.

Unplanned — Open Call, next issues

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Unplanned is a printed periodical publication dedicated to the invisible, and so many times messy, work process developed from different interactions performed during the artistic creation process — between the studio (or home) and fieldwork; between the built city and the surrounding empty spaces, abandoned buildings, or vacant land; between the successes, difficulties, progresses and setbacks of the artistic process; between the unexpected directions arising from personal research motivations, collective discussions and/or different articulations and collaborations between disciplinary fields; or simply between restrictions and imagination.

Taking artistic creation as a starting point, the focus lies on its intersections and overlaps with a great diversity of interests: architecture, urban ecology; natural sciences; climate crisis; critical cartography; geology; geography; gender studies; material culture; and others.

It is suggested to explore and make visible the hidden and, so many times, messy steps of work processes, with a particular focus on incomplete or ongoing projects, their material and/or performative experimentations, notation processes, mapping, drawings, diagraming approaches, fieldwork/field notes, and so on.

Submissions — Essays between 1250 and 2000 words (including notes) related to work processes stemmed from proposed topics or other topics suggested by the authors:

— The submitted proposals must contain a detailed description of what you intend to submit and how they are related to this open call (500 words and some selected images);

— All proposals must refer to original and unpublished work which is not under review for other publications.

All submissions are free of charge. Submissions and expressions of interest should be sent via submission form with image files sent via the WeTransfer link.

Deadline for this submission: July 31, 2022.

Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting the proposals. Also, take some time to explore the unplanned format and its contents.

Residency 23 - 'Understanding intelligence'

Share

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

What is intelligence? Can intelligence be owned, given or lost? Does it arise from our genes or our environment, or some mixture of both? Who can be thought of as intelligent and who is excluded from this category? How have science, society and art historically been dealing with intelligence - and how could they?

Residency 23, Understanding intelligence,  invites a multidisciplinary group of artists, scientists, and others to explore concepts and constructs of intelligence.

Intelligence seems to be a key value in human societies, especially in modern Western ones. It is often presented as a cornerstone of what it is to be human: a primary characteristic of our species. However, the study of other-than-human creatures has brought discussions about intelligent pigs, crows and octopuses to the dinner table, sometimes only to suggest that these animals are intelligent exactly like (or even more than) humans. When a capacity of mind is regularly denied of animals, especially of farm animals, one wonders if this is not least to soothe consciences around humans’ habitual behaviour towards other beings.

Once it comes to structuring human societies, specific concepts of intelligence and intelligence testing procedures penetrate several institutions: education systems, professional bodies’ examinations and assessment, healthcare systems’ definitions of intellectual disability, legal measures relating to mental health, intellectual capacity and individual responsibility. Further, notions of intelligence shape and are shaped by popular culture, for instance through portrayals of geeks, geniuses or the neuro-atypical. This is not without controversy. Intelligence measures and testing (for example via IQ scores) have operated historically to exclude, discriminate against and harm humans themselves, most specifically people already marginalised by their presumed gender, race, ethnicity or sexuality.  Concepts of intelligence and procedures for measuring intelligence have thus legitimately been under scrutiny for more than a century.

This residency asks how constructs of intelligence are measured, used and abused, and how changing understandings of human and more-than-human worlds might require radical redefinitions. Through creative engagement with concepts of human and other-than-human intelligence, intelligence testing and the resources of existing research projects, the residency aims to stimulate new understandings of intelligence through dialogue and creative activity. The residents will explore questions of control, freedom and access, and how lines are drawn between the pathological and the normal, nature and culture, and human and animal. 

Residency 23, Understanding intelligence is developed in collaboration with the University of Oslo (UiO) research project Historicizing intelligence: Tests, metrics and the shaping of contemporary society, which is based at the Museum of Cultural History, at its department Museum of University History (MUV).  Historicizing intelligence examines how the scientific research object “intelligence” and related testing technologies have come into being through transnational exchanges, how they have acquired various roles and functions in Norway, and how intelligence measurements are woven into relations of authority and legitimacy. Residents will have the opportunity to engage both with a multidisciplinary research team of historians, social anthropologists, science and technology scholars, jurists, and educationalists, and with materials in the historical collection on intelligence testing at the University of Oslo.

Residents will also have the opportunity to engage with work on human-animal relationships that is part of the research project MEATigation: Towards sustainable meat-use in Norwegian food practices for climate mitigation, based at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, and partly at the University of Oslo.
