The Snow Witch Open Art Exhibition

Share

Eligibility:

The Snow Witch - Second Call for Artists

The Art of Magic, The Magic of Art.

Celebrating Portsmouth’s extraordinary makers and creators.

Artists are invited to enter the Snow Witch Open Art Exhibition, which will be occurring over a four-week period during October and November in Cascades Shopping Centre, Portsmouth.

The exhibition is open to any artists working across any medium and in any discipline. All we ask is that the work(s) presented be a direct response to The Snow Witch novel in some form or other. Interpretation is down to you.

The idea Open Art Exhibition is inspired by author Matt Wingett's Portsmouth-based novel, The Snow Witch, and the wish to celebrate the diverse talents of Portsmouth’s creative community.

A presentation on the exhibition will be held at Hunter Gatherer, Portsmouth, on 22nd July at 7pm. All artists interested are very welcome to attend and find out more about what is planned for the exhibition.

Deadline for entry is 20th September 2019 and the entry fee is £5.

The exhibition is intended to run between 19th October and 10th November as part of this year’s Darkfest arts festival. The launch of the exhibition will on the afternoon of 19th October 2019 and will coincide with the launch of this year’s Darkfest.

We have adopted the principles of: radical inclusion, self-reliance, self-expression, community cooperation, gifting, de-commodification, and leaving no trace as an underpinning philosophy for the exhibition.

What do we mean by this?

We will facilitate a space for you to exhibit your work but the responsibility for making the work, delivering the work, installing the work, and removing the work at the conclusion of the exhibition will be yours.

We expect to be able to provide lots of support for you to do what you need to do to show your work. We expect to have people to help, tools, some materials and we hope to have exhibition stands, perhaps even more. All of this is there to support you exhibiting your work.

Ultimately though, we aim to facilitate an opportunity, the responsibility for your contribution to the exhibition will be yours.

T:AIM

Share

City:

Eligibility:

T:AIM is a pop up experience of Stories Of Migrant Women. We are building up an online exhibition open to everyone who recognizes him/herself into the women’s universe in all its shades in a context of migration/expatriation. The artwork must be coherent with the proposed theme. There is no entry fee and selected artists will be represented at the “Estate Allo Spasimo” program in Palermo, Italy on the 30/08 - 01/9/19. This is an international competition and artists from any country are welcome to participate.

T: AIM - promoting the collaboration between social commitment and visual culture.

Idea

T: AIM is an event that collides visual culture and politics, in open protest with obscurantist, homotransophobic, misogynist, xenophobic and nationalist policies.

In a historical moment in which Italian national policies (but not only) focus on cultural debasement to take hold on the masses, T:AIM proposes cultural resistance and the construction of bridges between geographically distant realities.

T:AIM is a joint ARTivist project born from the collaboration of three artists based in the United Kingdom (Alice, Billy Jay and Anita) supported by the Municipality of Palermo and proposed for the summer season "Estate allo Spasimo" in the context of Palermo CulturE.

The need to cut out spaces for genre narratives is fundamental to this project which has as its central aim to analyse, compare, exchange materials, opinions, and contacts to connect distant realities and build trans-feminist cultural spaces.

This meaning of inclusion and rejection of the status quo will be developed by exploring the theme of women and all those who recognise themselves in the female universe, in a context of expatriation, migration and estrangement.

We want to celebrate the transfeminist universe as a protagonist in art and culture by combining artistic practice with social responsibility and awareness. This is the main reason that led us to create T: AIM - Transfeminism: Art Identity Movement.

 

Development

The initiative will be a series of events divided into:

Meetings - networking and debate

Workshop - we will create a book of portraits based on the concept T: AIM - Transfeminism: art-identity-movement. The workshop is subject to booking. We will give details on the modalities with a dedicated post, follow us on the blog

Thematic insights - There will be artists, activists, and experts will give insight on their cultural areas of reference.

Activities and exhibitions will be held at the salon above the walls, within the monumental complex of Santa Maria dello Spasimo.

If you are interested in being part of our lineup (e.g. talk, reading), please do not hesitate to contact us no later than 28th of June

About NYCx3:

Superfine! NYCx3 is a revolutionary new art fair concept built in harmony with lower Manhattan’s high-roller real estate market. Instead of one five-day fair, we’re programming three consecutive fairs in a strategic lower Manhattan locale next spring. The triple focus on women artists, contemporary surrealists, and LGBTQI+ artists plays out in the overarching themes: (wo)man, myth, and Magick. In keeping with the themed program, each fair will be limited to no more than 60 exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

 

"Superfine! has been a life-changing experience that throttled my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day."

-- Sean Christopher Ward, exhibiting artist

 

NYCx1: (wo)man | 4.22-4.26.2020

The female perspective arrives at the forefront in the fair that launches NYCx3, with a focus on women artists taking their art to the next level.

 

NYCx2: myth | 4.29-5.2.2020

Surrealist ideas and modern mythology provide the backdrop for a diverse fair comprised of artists at the cutting edge of emerging contemporary art.

 

NYCx3: Magick | 5.5-5.9.2020

A celebration of all things queer: Magick highlights LGBTQI+ and ally artists representing the queer global experience across a broad range of styles and media.

 

A whole year of exhibitions in a weekend.

  • Connect with 5-7,000 motivated, art-hungry New Yorkers during each five day fair.
  • ~25% of our visitors make a significant ($100-$2,500+) art purchase.
  • More than 50% of our exhibiting artists receive major media coverage.

Get to Know Us

Founded by art collectors Alex Mitow and James Miille, Superfine! started out in 2015 as an alternative to boring, stuffy art shows and complicated art world politics. From the start, we caught flack from the art establishment when we broke down barriers and opened the gates to everyone from serious long-time art collectors to people who just love art and never thought they’d collect.

As it turned out, nobody cared about the art world and their politics. Our open and transparent approach worked: imaginations have been sparked and countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! fairs as we continue to spread our message of a more inclusive art market across the country. Since 2015, we’ve had one goal: produce badass, expertly curated art shows where über-talented, diverse global artists meet their new fans in iconic locations across the US and beyond.

FAQ:

1) Can I share a booth with a friend?

Our 8' and 12' artist booths are intended for solo artists only, but our 16' and 20' booths can be shared by up to 5 artists. However, one person must be appointed as the booth representative for communication and payment purposes.

 

2) I'm a gallery, can I apply?

Superfine! is an artist-driven fair but we welcome progressive, forward-thinking galleries, collectives, and artist-run programs to apply. Each fair has a dedicated number (between 5 and 20) of larger booths ideal for galleries. Contact our sales team at exhibit@superfine.world for more information about coming on board as a gallery.

 

3) Can I get a discount?

We do offer a 5% per-fair discount for booths paid in full upfront, within three business days of a signed application. If immediate cash flow is a concern, we offer options to spread booth costs over as much as a year - just ask us!

 

4) Why three fairs?

Our biggest infrastructure costs (venue + walls) are amortized over three weeks, allowing us to dedicate 2x more to marketing per fair. Hosting three more compact fairs lets us choose an ideal and strategic lower Manhattan venue, vs. seeking larger space in outer lying areas. With only 60 exhibitors, the fair is an intimate experience for artists and collectors alike, and our focused themes allow us to focus our audiences even better.
