Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery seeks submissions for our January- February 2022 group exhibition juried by Rosalyn D'Mello (international art critic, feminist writer, columnist, and recent evaluator for the Andy Warhol Foundation Art Writers Grant). 

This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

For the upcoming Jan/Feb 2022 exhibition Word of Mouth, Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork exploring food through an intersectional feminist lens across mediums. It asks artists to subvert socially conditioned, gendered conceptions of a kitchen, an ingredient, a worm, or even a plate.

"The kinky tactility of that which is edible, materially or intangibly, spiritually or secularly is our pursuit. It forms the fibrous conceptual core of this exhibition. We seek that which evangelizes or is informed by orality, by sensory interventions that are performative and exploratory, inconclusive yet holistic; that which relates to tongue or lingual papillae, that which is linked to the irrepressible, bound by the fluid interstices between resonance, laughter, and/or rage; that which relates to dimensions of hunger and satiation, gluttony and greed, miracles and grief, that which connotes the alterity of word-made-flesh-made-text-made-loaf…

Imagine the sound a knife makes as it sluices the petticoats of onions; the void in the pit of a freshly de-seeded cherry; the earthiness of organic fertilizer; the rapture of an almond tree full-blossomed in spring; the gospel according to a caterpillar, or a bee." - Rosalyn D'Mello

The juror is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in investigating the following conceptual questions for "Word of Mouth":

  • If we are what we eat what nourishes our collective soul? 
  • How does your garden grow? How does the squirmy earthworm embody hope? 
  • How to advance queer table fellowship? 
  • What makes a particular orifice a mouth? 
  • How do we salvage leftover joys? 
  • How do you undo a pomegranate without the application of a knife? Can you cut a pineapple underwater? 
  • How does the gut relate to emotion? How do you ferment old wine?

 

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. We encourage intersectional feminist approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, and disability, among other social locations.

Agora Digital Art Residency

Eligibility:

Open Call for self-identified Women Artists working in New Media and XR

The Residency Lab is a digital residency opened to self-identified women artists, working in New Media Art with XR (AI, AR, MR, ML, VR, etc), challenging, exploring and engaging on the dis/embodiment, transhumanism and gender fluidity.

The Residency Lab is also a springboard to create a new project and to test new practices in a VR Mozilla Hubs venue.

That venue link belongs to the artist. You can continue developing your project after the residency. It is meant to invite people in such as curators, gallerists or collectors, to view your solo show.

 

How does it work?

Agora Digital Art will support and facilitate your creative process for the entire journey, with your designated curator.

What we offer today is curatorial support, plus networking opportunities. We also develop your residency page, produce a talk and do a “studio visit” after the residency. And, as a final boost Agora Digital Art creates a massive social media promotion campaign for you.

The objective of the residency is to start or to continue a project, in view to exhibit min. one artwork in a permanent virtual exhibition, in Mozilla Hubs.

 

Digital Art Residency Lab

  • Periods starting in 2021:  Opening for September to December
  • Application deadline:  on the 27th of each month 
  • Duration of the residency: one month
  • Outputs: a virtual exhibition in Mozilla Hubs (solo show), your Artist page, Interview or article, Agora Talk and social media promotion campaign. 

 

About you

  • You are a self-identifying woman or non-binary digital artist (She/Her or They/Them) or in a group including 50% women artists.
  • You have easy access to Internet.
  • You are min. aged 23 at the moment of your residency.
  • You do speak well enough in English.
  • You are committed to dedicating time and research during your residency.
  • You are willing to document your residency in a Live “Studio Visit” in a 121 zoom.
  • You are available for any content Agora will produce about you: interview, podcast or talk.
  • You work in New Media and XR (AI, AR, MR, ML, VR, etc)
  • Please prepare: 200-word max biography, 300-word Artist Statement, 500-word Project Proposal, plus social media and your website link.
  • The artists hold full intellectual property rights and control of the final piece they create and the venue in Mozilla Hubs.

FAQ

  • Is the Residency Lab paid? Since we are a young organisation, unfortunately, the Residency Lab is unpaid. We need to find a sponsor – hopefully soon. But Agora Digital Art does a lot of marketing promotion on- and off-line.
  • Who will be my curator? Agora Digital Art is a volunteer-based organisation, it will depend on the curators’ team availability and interest.
  • I have no project idea, can I apply? The Residency Lab is to help you to test new things. So, it’s better to start with a clear basis because one month is not that long to produce new artworks – depending on what you want to achieve.
  • I’m not in the age range, can I apply? Sorry, but you should be confirmed as 23 years old during your residency. If you’re too young, wait until you reach 23 years old.

Contemporary Activist Visual Art Performance with Martha Wilson

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 07/11/2021 - 05/12/2021
    
Activist avant-garde artists have historically ignored national boundaries as well as aesthetic ones, taking regular people to be their audience and any subject or material under the sun to be appropriate to their means.  Contemporary activist visual art performance practitioners view this avant-garde legacy as their own, incorporating musical, theatrical, literary, dance, film and technological elements in their work in order to address the pressing issues of our time.  This course will focus on critical examples of performance art from the last century to today to analyze how artists have positioned themselves in relation to current standards of artistic production and developed techniques of provocation to activate the audience.  Course work includes readings of primary and critical texts, class discussion, and performance art presentations by each member of the class presented on Zoom followed by discussion of this individual work.

Martha Wilson is a pioneering feminist artist and gallery director, who over the past five decades created innovative photographic and video works that explore her female subjectivity through role-playing, costume transformations, and "invasions" of other people's personae. She began making these videos and photo/text works in the early 1970s while in Halifax in Nova Scotia, and further developed her performative and video-based practice after moving in 1974 to New York City, embarking on a long career that would see her gain attention across the U.S. for her provocative appearances as political personae. In 1976 she founded, and as Founding Director Emerita, continues to help direct Franklin Furnace, an artist-run space that champions the exploration, promotion and preservation of artists’ books, installation art, video, online and performance art, further challenging institutional norms, the roles artists play within society, and expectations about what constitutes acceptable art mediums.

Martha was described by New York Times critic Holland Cotter as one of "the half-dozen most important people for art in downtown Manhattan in the 1970s" - she remains what curator Peter Dykhuis calls a "creative presence as an arts administrator and cultural operative." Martha's early work is now considered prescient - in addition to being regarded by many as prefiguring some of the ideas proposed in the 1980s by philosopher Judith Butler about gender performativity, many of her photo-text pieces point to territory later mined by Cindy Sherman, among many other contemporary artists.

As a performance artist she founded and collaborated with DISBAND, the all-girl punk conceptual band of women artists who can't play any instruments, and impersonated political figures such as Alexander M. Haig, Jr., Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Tipper Gore and Donald Trump.

The workshop is open to everyone, from any artistic or academic background, at any level of experience.

Eligibility:

The Indianapolis Art Center announces a Call for Entry to Women’s Work. Women’s Work is a juried exhibition centered on gender and feminist politics. Historically, women have been excluded from the art world, from being kept out of academies and apprenticeships to being woefully underrepresented in galleries and museums today. Along with this, the art skills that were deemed feminine or appropriate for women, such as sewing, embroidery, or weaving, are dismissed as “just” crafts and hobbies. This exhibition, open to women-identified and non-binary artists from the local and national community, seeks to highlight female artists and intersectionality in femininity.

Eligibility:

Submission is open to all women and non-binary artists over the age of 18 residing in the United States.
