Green Hill Gallery EXHIBITION SPRING 2021

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Green Hill Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for the new exhibition on the topic of identity, connectivity and community. This exhibition wants to be a journey in the discovery of what identity means nowadays and how it can be influenced by changes, as well as by the way one connects with oneself, others and the outside world. It challenges artists to explore the confrontation between showing oneself to oneself and showing oneself to others.

We invite emerging and established artists working in any medium from Berlin and from all over the world to participate in this call, as long as the topic is explored through the artwork. Please be aware that, since the Green Hill Gallery is run by the non-profit organization Kulturschöpfer e.V., accepted artists living outside Berlin will have to take care of the transportation of their artworks.

The exhibition will be displayed in our Green Hill Gallery and will be part of our diverse identity project. The project will entail additional events to explore the concept of identity and connectivity from different perspectives (online and/or offline, depending on the Coronavirus regulations).

NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine (AIM), with support from the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, is seeking a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for lead artists to work on the NYC Health + Hospitals Community Murals Project (CMP). Continuing the tradition established in the 1930s when the Works Progress Administration supported hundreds of murals across New York City’s public hospitals, the CMP will connect artists and local community members to re-imagine hospitals and promote greater neighborhood wellness.

Visual artists will engage with patients, staff, and local residents to create an integrated internal or external mural at selected NYC Health + Hospitals facilities. The aim of the program is to use a collaborative mural making process as a tool to build trust and engagement between the hospitals and their communities, build neighborhood pride, and reduce the stigma associated with hospitals through community building activities.

Proposed themes can include:

Heart & Soul
Health Care Heroes
​Power of Community
Thrive
Grit

NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine anticipates selecting nine (9) professional visual artists to work closely with nine (9) NYC Health + Hospitals facilities to engage staff and community members in a participatory design process and to create and install nine (9) health themed murals. Murals will be installed in both internal and external locations at the facilities, all of which will be highly visible public areas. This collaboration will last from February 1, 2021 through July 31, 2021. This RFQ is soliciting nine (9) professional visual artists that have a portfolio of work executing large-scale murals, have connections with the boroughs and communities of New York City, and experience facilitating workshops and events that engage diverse communities in the creative process.

Project Budget:
The Project Budget is $8,000.00 per location for artist fees including design services, community engagement, site preparation, fabrication, travel, and installation. NYC Health + Hospitals AIM will provide any necessary supplies, permits, insurance, and documentation. NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine Department will execute a deliverables-based MOU valued at $8,000.00 with the lead artist. Lead artists will be paid 1/2 upfront, and 1/2 upon completion. NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine Department will cover all costs related to art supplies and additional materials for workshops and community events, equipment for the installation, special insurance, permits for mural sites and other relevant costs relating to the production of the murals.

Who May Apply:
Professional visual artists or artist teams working in any media, legally authorized to work in the United States, and who are at least 18 years of age, are eligible to apply.

The Song Between Our Stars: Open Call for Artists and Writers

Share

Eligibility:

2020.

Can’t say much about it directly for it all feels flat. The analyses about it will come. The poetry and stories about it will arrive. Later.

Now we are here. We live it, rage it, map it, avoid it, pawn it, mourn it, teach it.

Often there is not enough to create. And still somehow, creation happens. As a coping mechanism. Alternate media as rebellion. As a connecting mechanism. As an instrument of solitude. As a funnel for fear or a bucket for hope.

It’s too much for any one person.

OPEN CALL: work created in 2020, on any subject.

Written: Essay, poetry, short fiction, non-fiction up to 1200 words
Visual: Photography, digital artwork, photo/scan of other media. Full color, or b/w, No watermarks please. High res (300 dpi minimum)
Timing: created after 1 January 2020, created before 31 December 2020, Entries accepted until 31 January 2021, PDF, PNG, or JPG
