Life in Ink: Contemporary Tattoo Culture

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Humans have decorated their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years. The meanings of these tattoos vary greatly across cultures-- displays of social rankings, punishment for criminals, expressions of spirituality, celebrating achievements in life and war, and simple statements of fashion. It is a form of expression that connects us across cultures, languages, and belief systems.
This exhibition is intended to showcase the infinite possibilities of tattoo art in all of its forms and styles. Express your individualism and creativity by translating body art to fine art. From flash sheets to fully-realized paintings, photographic documentation to three-dimensional representation, we want to see the unique ways in which you express your Life in Ink.

Share Prize XIII Edition

Eligibility:

The XV edition of Share Festival, the Italian exhibition of contemporary tech art and science, lead by the Artistic Director Bruce Sterling, announces the opening of the call. The theme of this edition of Share Prize is:

 

RIOTS

HERE WE ARE

 

An atmosphere of blissful calm prevails over Share Festival, in the fifteenth consecutive year of our technology-art fair. The cruel word “Crisis” has become old-fashioned here in Italy, a nation whose government is  the most stable of all the G-7 major powers.
Our city has recently signed a ten-point Manifesto of Non-Hostile Communications, which recommends wise principles of civilized discourse online (and is highly suited for public announcements like this one).  The City of Turin has recently celebrated its first “Festival of Technology,” where our erudite populace responded with polite appreciation to the marvels of science. This huge, crowd-pleasing tech festival appeared back-to-back with Turin’s vast, legendary “Artissima” art fair, so that our city can now justly boast of its learned patronage of every form of modern art, and modern research, too!
Here at Share Festival of Piemonte, the radical, cutting-edge art forms that we have long championed: tactical media, net.art, device art, code art, interactive installations and augmented experiences — are being legitimized, refined and civilized.   All of our avant-garde artistic eccentricities are fast becoming twenty-first century mainstream lifestyles. Our Share Festival jury for the year 2020 is the wisest and best-briefed that we have ever assembled, for it includes the doyenne of the Piedmontese art scene, the globally-famed art collector and cultural activist, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. She is ShareFestival’s favorite Knight of Arts and Letters. We are really looking forward to a close discussion of your artistic entries this year. Frankly, our festival has never seen such a halcyon situation.  We are the picture of smart-urban civility.
La vita é bella!

*******************************************

 

However… here, below the dividing-line…. what about all those other cities, here at the turn of the decade?    Crowds waves angry banner, subways are flaming, airports are besieged, lasers flare in the tear-gas clouds under the drones — urban mayhem smolders over every horizon!   Leaderless crowds cry out their need to take back a control that seems entirely illusory; polarized parliaments howl abuse and demand impeachments, blockades and barricades abound to stop overcrowded caravans where all the wheels have fallen off….  Tech unicorns fall flaming in disgrace, and even the ultra-rich weep and tremble in public venues; social lynch-mobs abound, while enlightened scientists flee the trolls; upheavals are met with ominous silence as the Internet’s plug is pulled over vast, stricken provinces.  The tenuous fabric of civilization is shredded as law enforcement agents randomly batter the passers-by, and frenzied outbursts of reckless passion and raw discontent shatter the one-way mirror of the status quo. Surveillance is redoubled as the surveilled can’t be bothered to behave; to “befriend” is an act of covert emnity, while to
“like” is passe’. A riot is not a revolution or a reform, it’s a burst of frenzy that concludes in melancholy astonishment. And yet: here we are.  Such is the social condition.  It could be anywhere, it could be anybody. 

What can we make of this? What’s to become of us?

 

Bruce Sterling, Share Festival Art Director
Jasmina Tesanovic, Share Prize Curator

 

The works nominated for the prize must comply with the theme. An International Jury will select 6 candidates for the award, who will be invited to take part in the exhibition, which will take place in Turin in May 2020. By the end of February 2020 the finalists will be announced.

The Derwent Art Prize 2020 Call for Entries

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Derwent, internationally renowned fine art brand, are proud to announce that the fifth instalment of the Derwent Art Prize is now open for entries.

The Derwent Art Prize was conceived in 2012 and aims to reward excellence by showcasing the very best 2D & 3D artworks created in any pencil or coloured pencil as well as water soluble, pastel, graphite and charcoal. Since the Derwent Art Prize began, the competition has attracted more than 10,000 entries from almost 70 countries, with the 2018 edition of the opportunity receiving 3,231 entries from 1,275 artists worldwide.

Derwent are delighted to introduce the selectors for 2020: the artist Charles Avery; the Director of Turner Contemporary Victoria Pomeroy OBE; and the writer and art critic Alice Rawsthorn.

Despite being told by art school tutors to ‘stop drawing’ because ‘drawing is not a masterable art’, Charles Avery has since seen his drawings featured in The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Scotsman, Frieze, Apollo, FAD Magazine and A-N. Avery is best known for his long-term project The Islanders, which has been exhibited widely and which has represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale. Victoria Pomery OBE is the Director of Turner Contemporary, an art gallery in Margate that presents a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions. Victoria believes that the arts play an integral role in our society and stresses the fact that both the arts and the people who deliver them must adapt to changing audiences and changing times. Alice Rawsthorn is an award-winning design critic and critically acclaimed author. Alice has worked as a journalist for The Financial Times and The New York Times, has held the position of Director at the Design Museum, London, and has participated in multiple global design events including TED and the annual meetings of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

From the total artworks submitted, approximately fifty will be selected for display at the gallery@oxo, London from 22nd April – 4th May 2020. Prizes totalling £12,500 plus a special edition box of 100 Lightfast Pencils will be awarded in a private awards ceremony on the opening night of the exhibition.  We are delighted to announce the introduction of a number of special incentives for young artists: a Young Artist First Prize of £4,000, a Young Artist Second Prize of £2,000, and a reduced entry fee for young artists - just £5 per work. In addition, ten young artists will be selected for an online exhibition which will be available to view for one month on the Derwent website. The exhibition will provide the selected artists with additional exposure for their work to a highly engaged audience.

Derwent is committed to supporting artists in the form of both cash prizes and exposure. For this reason, the 2020 edition of the Prize will see one artist winning an Advertorial Award with Aesthetica Magazine, an international art and culture publication with a readership of over 400,000, and the Young Artist Winner having their winning entry displayed at the Moniker Art Fair, a hyper-curated five day contemporary art fair exhibiting an international roster of the finest artists and galleries at the cutting edge of urban art and culture - in New York in May 2020 and London in October 2020. Derwent is passionate about building both a community and a legacy for the Art Prize. As an exhibitor, the story doesn’t end with the close of the London exhibition; you become part of the Art Prize community which Derwent strives to support through opportunities such as involvement in art fairs and online exhibitions.

Following the success of two French artists – France Bizot, First Prize and Emma Bertin Sanabria, Young Artist Prize - in 2018, the Derwent Art Prize 2020 will be shown in Paris, which will be the first time that the exhibition has travelled abroad. It will be available to view at 20 Rue Saint Claude from 12th – 17th May 2020.

Artists may submit up to six works that are both original and created in pencil. To enter and for further details including full terms and conditions on entry requirements, please visit: www.derwent-artprize.com
