Wales Contemporary / Cymru Gyfoes

Type:

Category:

Organisation:

Wales Contemporary / Cymru Gyfoes, is an international open competition inviting artists from all around the world to enter work in 2D or 3D in any subject matter.

Developed in 2019 by the Waterfront Gallery with the support of the Welsh Government, Wales Contemporary / Cymru Gyfoes, has established a strong reputation for championing and rewarding contemporary artists and their diverse practices, throughout a wide range of prizes and a touring exhibition promising to inspire wide audiences of art lovers.

For its 2022 edition, Wales Contemporary received close to 2,000 entries from 1,000 artists living across 42 countries including the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Norway, France, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and the United Arab Emirates

After much deliberation, a shortlist of 144 works by 117 artists have been selected to showcase their work in the 2022 exhibition.

The 2022 shortlist was selected by a panel comprised of distinguished art professionals: Rebecca Salter RA, President of the Royal Academy, Morfudd Bevan, curator of the National Collection, The National Library of Wales and Jill Piercy, curator, and writer.

“As a selector, I was impressed by the high quality of entries with submissions from over forty countries worldwide” says Jill Piercy. “I look forward to seeing the original works by the finalists and selecting the prize winners for Wales Contemporary 2022.”

“We are delighted that this important competition was recognised in so many countries around the world” notes David Randell, Curator and Director at the Waterfront Gallery. “Bringing an exhibition of this quality to the far western fringes of Wales to share with our communities is an important part of our ethos.”

The shortlisted artworks will be available to see in the Wales Contemporary / Cymru Gyfoes exhibition at the Waterfront Gallery, Milford Haven, from Saturday 1st October 2022, with the Private View and Prize Announcements occurring on Friday 30 September 2022. The exhibition will then tour to the gallery@OXO, central London, in November 2022.

The first and second iterations of Wales Contemporary invited work ‘Inspired by Wales’. Now in its third instalment, the 2022 exhibition has expanded its horizons, inviting entries in any subject matter, across mediums of painting, sculpture, drawing, print, ceramic, glass, textile, collage, mixed media, and more.

Viewers can expect to see sweeping seascapes, snow tipped mountainous terrains, tender interiors and still life frames, photo realistic and evocative landscapes, abstract and surreal scenes of imagination, figurative and portraiture subjects and striking sculptural forms to name but a few.

Placed in dialogue with one another, the works within this year’s exhibition not only present representations of what makes Wales Welsh, but brings together a dynamic selection showcasing exceptional, diverse, and original expressions of contemporary practice across the globe today.

David Randell, Curator and Director at the Waterfront Gallery said: “The Waterfront Gallery is immensely proud to be bringing this prestigious competition to Milford Waterfront again, and of our partnership with the Port of Milford Haven. We particularly appreciate them being our lead sponsor for the Wales Contemporary international fine art competition and subsequent exhibition.” 

Tom Sawyer, CEO for the Port of Milford Haven commented: “We are delighted to be supporting the Wales Contemporary art competition. The Waterfront Gallery is an important cultural asset to Milford Waterfront, and one we are very proud to collaborate with.”

CyFer Open Call

Category:

City:

Organisation:

Researchers from the CyFer project, funded by PETRAS, UK, are examining cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust in FemTech. Female-oriented technologies (FemTech) promise to enable people to take control of their bodies and lives, helping them overcome the many existing challenges in medical care and research. There is a lack of data about women and other minority and minoritised groups in medical sciences. There is also bias and discrimination in health studies, data sets, and algorithms. FemTech solutions promise to centre these groups in the design and development of their systems. However, the FemTech industry remains largely unregulated. There is a lack of clarity in the law (e.g. GDPR and HIPAA), and in industry and user practice in relation to this extremely sensitive data on different levels i.e. user consent, third-party sharing, and algorithmic bias which may lead to malicious purposes.

We are looking for artists, designers and creative technologists who are interested in exploring FemTech cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust. We invite you to create critical artefacts and interventions that include digital and material speculations. You will have the opportunity to explore the technical and social aspects of this complex issue with the project team throughout your engagement, including workshops and informal interaction.

We want to commission a diverse selection of work, creating various new entry points to this research for new audiences. We are open to all types of creative response to this call, but will require there to be a digital aspect to the work, whether this is the work itself or an accompanying artefact.

Commitment: Successful applicants will be expected to participate in activities designed to deepen your knowledge of the subject matter, provide occasional updates to the project team, create an artefact, contribute to a short video, and partake in an interview with the research team after the project. Anonymous participation can be discussed if required.

The team will engage with you throughout the journey to provide you with the relevant scientific resources around FemTech cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust. The specific activities (e.g., workshops) will be announced accordingly. We are not able to provide studio/fablab space.

Timeline:

  • The EoI should be submitted by midnight on 21st of August 2022.
  • Successful applicants will be informed by 9th September 2022
  • Successful applicants will be expected to start in Sept/Oct 2022 and finalise their work by the end Jan 2023.
  • The exhibition itself is tbd, dependant on the composition of artists/designers/creative technologists and their anticipated works. However, a launch/exhibition is expected to be held in Mar 2023.
Prize Summary: 
£1500
Prizes Details: 

Selected artists, designers, and creative technologists will receive £1500. You will retain ownership of the work in the long term but will agree to it being exhibited by PETRAS at the end of the project. You will also provide digital artefact(s) which PETRAS will retain use of for future research and public engagement activities.

EoIs are welcome from all over the world. We will cover the costs of transporting works in addition to the £1500 per artist/designer. There is no expectation that all artists/designers must attend anything in person in the UK and we will take a flexible approach to working in person/online/hybrid depending on the composition of the group of successful artists and designers.

EXHIBITION OR A PAVILION AT THE (VENICE) BIENNALE.

Everything you need to know about curating and organizing an exhibition or a pavilion at the (Venice) Biennale.

What is necessary to know about permissions, promotion, funding and more...to make a successful event.

11.10 – 04.11.2022

Deadline: 29 September 2022

The Venice Biennale is a large-scale international contemporary art exhibition. In early May, thousands of art-world denizens descend in the city for the opening of a new edition of the Biennale, the closely watched pageant of contemporary art that has been running—with a few interruptions—since 1895. The Biennale is arguably the most prestigious exhibition in the world, filled with history and also cloaked in myth.

The preview days brings 25,000 artists, collectors, curators, museum directors and journalists into the city, followed by 600,000 visitors in the six months after. For this reason it is extremely important to know how everything works.

Session 1. 11.10.22

What is the Venice Biennale and why everybody wants to be present. Identification of the keys points that all participants need to know before facing such import event.

Session 2. 14.10.2022

First step the location. How to find the ideal location. Even though the city is small, for the Venice Biennale you need to be in a good quarter. How to find the right location. Prices. The place makes the difference.

Session 3. 18.10.2022

Step 2. What do you need to know about your location. The exhibition space is in the Arsenale? Inside of the Biennale? Then is very important to know which are the rules to respect, the permissions you need and the best suppliers you can get.

Session 4. 21.10.2022

Organizing your event in a place located in the city: the things changes and there are other permissions you need to provide, rules to respect, and of course the suppliers.

How to promote an event during the Biennale: this is the most intensive period and a part for the main exhibition organized by the Biennale, you have at least 300 more competitors. In the city during the Venice Biennale there almost 500 of shows, events and projects.

Timing and strategies is a key point in order to have a successful event. Session 6.

Collateral events can be a good strategy to keep and attract the attention on your initiative. When is a collateral program useful for the promotion of your show and how should it work: dinners, parties, conference, workshop and presentation.

Session 7. - 01.11.2022

Venice is a tough city! No cars, therefore transports are only on boats. All about logistic: transports and suppliers. Taxi and restaurants. Hotels and flats. When you should start booking and arranging all these fundamental matters.

What you should not do at the Venice Biennale. Some key scenarios which should absolutely avoided.

The fee is 590 euro.
