red03 Art Gallery

Share

City:

In Barcelona, ​​in the El Born neighborhood, in front of the Picasso Museum, there is a different cultural space in the area.
Since its inauguration in September 2006, red03 is not just a gallery, but an alternative space for dissemination and exhibition, where art becomes part of everyday life.

We promote a new perspective of art, within conscious consumption.
Each work has been designed and created by human beings, artists who work to add value to the world we inhabit.

We propose the possibility of showing, buying and selling art in an ethical way and consistent with our social commitment.
We seek decent work conditions.
We offer pieces made in the most responsible way possible, because we work taking care of and improving our environment.

Created and directed by the artist Marcela Jardón, the red03 arose as a result of the meeting of different artists and artisans. The name is as much for a network of creators as for the red of the passion they put into their works.

We currently offer a selection of objects from national and international artists, with strong ties to Barcelona, ​​the city where they have lived or currently live.

Say goodbye to the average work-study program! At The Muse Brooklyn, our hearts beat circus and our workstudy students are the backbone of our community. From being the face of our front desk, to transforming our studio into whatever fun event we happen to be hosting, this program promises to utilize the skills and interests of every individual, while giving opportunities to build and refine professional circus skills in our state-of-the-art studio in Brooklyn.

Our work-study program is a six-month commitment, consisting of two, 4.5 hour shifts each week.

In exchange for hours worked on site, work-studies receive unlimited open workout training time and ground circus classes, options to "drop in" to any open aerial class using class credits, discounts on events and merchandise, free entry into professionally focused community workshops and more! This program is flexible enough to meet the needs of students, performers, dreamers with a day job, and anyone else with other commitments, while still being structured enough to give hands-on, professional experience in administration, performing arts, and the circus industry overall. Our work-study Program is designed to encourage the creative side of each individual while allowing them to explore new heights (literally!)

In addition, we have working professionals regularly training in our studio as well as host auditions for large scale productions, with casting agents passing through on a regular basis. The Muse Brooklyn is an incubator for those that are willing and eager to make themselves available for opportunities and experiences unique to our space. Even if your career goal is not to perform professionally, you will be given the opportunity to learn other skills such as lights & sound, event and stage management, and production. Personally, you will grow and develop simply by being a regular part of our family and community.  

No circus experience required! We're proud to have been a home to everyone from dancers to actors, scientists to engineers, and everything in between. If you love and support the arts, The Muse community is for you!

DEFAULT 19_CALL FOR PARTNERS

Share

Category:

Country:

Ramdom, an independent organisation focused on art and culture based in Southern Italy, is looking for international partnerships for DEFAULT 19, its upcoming research project.

RAMDOM

Ramdom is an organisation devoted to cultural and artistic production and it is based in Gagliano del Capo (LE, Italy). It was founded in 2011 by curator Paolo Mele and artist Luca Coclite with the aim of providing international projection to contemporary art projects produced in dialogue with the local territory of Salento. Over the past seven years activities have included exhibitions, public art productions, residencies and workshops, plus two ongoing research focused endeavours, Investigation of Extreme Lands and DEFAULT. Ramdom’s headquarter, Lastation, is located on the first floor of a still active railway station in Southeast Italy, with facilities including offices, an exhibition space, and a future mediatheque to be launched in the summer of 2019.

About DEFAULT

DEFAULT, which celebrates its fifth edition this year, is a biennial short-residency project. It was initially conceived to reflect upon the role that public art plays on the politics surrounding urban regeneration, the usage of abandoned spaces, the re-appropriation and interaction with public spaces. After two editions held in Lecce (2011 and 2013) that specifically addressed these themes, in 2015 DEFAULT shifted its focus inaugurating an ongoing research to investigate the notion of Extreme Lands. The change of focus reflected the new backdrop of DEFAULT, which for its third edition moved from Lecce to Gagliano del Capo, located kilometres away from the Southernmost point of the Italian boot’s heel.

For a week (from 18th to 23rd of June 2019) artists and cultural professionals from all over the world gather in Gagliano to bring the research forward together with invited lecturers and experts across various disciplines, taking their own practice and interests as a starting point.

The participants (artists, curators, researchers), are selected through an open call advertised on international channels, are invited to with workshop carried out by lecturers.

The short-residency is not focused on the production of an artistic projects, but on providing participants to share ideas and experiences related to the themes proposed.

The week’s main output will take the form of a publication edited by Ramdom with contributions from all participants. Proposals for artistic projects that may rise from the discussions brought forward during the week, will be taken into consideration for a possible realisation at a later stage.  

The open call for participants will be launched on the 18th of March and will be open until the 20th of April. Participants will be selected by an international jury.

What are we looking for?

Ramdom aims at widening its international relationships, nurturing links with institutional partners and like-minded networks.

What we ask for partners is to cooperate with Ramdom by proposing future developments and collaborative opportunities linked to the Extreme Lands research; to advise on external lecturers that will tutor participants during the upcoming edition of DEFAULT; to support Ramdom in the dissemination of the open call and in the selection of participants.We ask all potential partners interested in a collaboration to apply via the following form by the 15th of March 2019

In 2002 started making mummified toothbrushes to represent those who were murdered senselessly everyday. I first exhibited this installation in 2004 at Denise Bibro Fine Art Gallery, then in Dumbo, at Rush Arts Gallery in Chelsea and in the LES at MMProject Space. I have since moved on from this project and would like to donate over 10,000 mummified toothbrushes to someone interested in this installation. You can contact me at michael@michaelmut.com  Thank you
