JUSTICE

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

What comes to mind when you see the word JUSTICE? Does JUSTICE conjure images of throngs of people marching for civil rights or youth holding signs at a climate change rally? Perhaps you think of issues surrounding systemic racism, data privacy, urban design, labor, food deserts, or how public goods are dispersed.

What happens when we focus on notions of JUSTICE that address the policies that govern our communities, the products that shape our lives, and even the health of the planet? JUSTICE can be personal, political, and often in a state of change with respect to history, newly evolving digital spaces, or different stages of life. Thus, as our global society evolves, our ideas of JUSTICE often need to be reevaluated, updated, and discussed.

In 2022-2023, Science Gallery Atlanta will open the JUSTICE exhibition season with a 9,000-square-foot exhibition at the historic Pullman Rail Yards, accompanied by a suite of public programs -- all informed by a global community of creatives and thought leaders in collaboration with artists, researchers, and youth from the Atlanta region, plus area research universities and organizations. JUSTICE will examine the relationships between individuals and the systems that impact their lives, the intersection of those systems more broadly, and the agency of individuals to influence those institutions.

Topics for development and partnership include (but are not limited to):

social justice and civil rights

race, gender, LGBTQ+ equality and rights

criminal and procedural justice

environmental and climate justice

algorithmic and data justice

epistemic equity

disability and accessibility justice

immigration justice

child and human rights

food justice

transportation justice

health access and healthcare inequities

labor movements

design and the built environment

economic policy and wage disparities

For researchers: Science Gallery Atlanta welcomes your ideas and proposals on the theme of JUSTICE, inclusive of a wide range of scholarship and research. You are not required to have an artist connected to your submission. If your submission is selected, we can work with you to foster a collaboration.

For artists: Science Gallery Atlanta welcomes your ideas and proposals on the theme of JUSTICE, inclusive of all artistic mediums. You are not required to have a scientist or researcher connected to your submission. If your submission is selected, we can work with you to foster a collaboration.

About Science Gallery Atlanta: Through multidisciplinary collaborations between visual, performance, and media arts and fields ranging from public health, biology, theology, physics, sociology, economics and beyond, Science Gallery Atlanta at Emory University seeks to explore universal themes that impact our communities right here in Atlanta and, through our work, inform global discourse.

Seeking proposals for art-climate-science collaborations

Eligibility:

Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organization is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following — artist, scientist and observer — who will work together on a new project to test our Collaboration Blueprint. 

Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an “observer” role — the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.

Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:

  • Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements,
  • Be documented as they move through their process and
  • Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.

The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.

Have questions? Tune in for our informational webinar on March 8th!

01/April/2021

Open Call for Art: Agency

Country:

Eligibility:

Agency: A virtual art show reflecting the themes of global citizenship

Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in May 1-30, 2021  on this website and be highlighted during our May 15-16  online conference, called “Greetings, Earthlings”

“Agency” can be defined as the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power. How can artists act as agents to address the real and imagined boundaries of our planet in relation to the climate crisis? What responsibility do we have as visual thinkers to generate momentum for change? How can art elevate a discussion about borders, civic responsibility, kindness, humanitarianism, justice, and stewardship in the Anthropocene? Works from all media will be considered including, but not limited to, photography, video, sculpture, installation, multimedia works, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Submission FREE: There are no fees to submit your work

Eligibility: Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent

Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show

Background Brief: 
Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability,  is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.

Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.

Juror/Curator: 
Margaret LeJeune is an image-maker, curator, and educator from Rochester, New York (USA). Working predominantly with photographic-based mediums, LeJeune explores our precarious relationship to the natural world. Her work has been widely exhibited at institutions around the world including The Griffin Museum of Photography (USA), The Center for Fine Art Photography (USA), ARC Gallery (USA), Circe Gallery Cape Town (South Africa), Science Cabin (South Korea), and Umbrella Arts (USA). LeJeune has been invited to create work at several residency programs which foster collaboration between the arts and sciences including the Global Nomadic Art Project – The Ephemeral River (Dartington, UK), University of Notre Dame Research Center (USA), and University of Wisconsin – Madison Trout Lake Research Station (USA).  She has been awarded a Puffin Fellowship, The Sally A. Williams Artist Grant, and a Bradley University Research Excellence ‘New Directions’ Grant for her interdisciplinary project Growing Light.  Her work was recently published in Culture, Community, and Climate: Conversations and Emergent Praxis from art.earth press. LeJeune currently serves as Associate Professor of Photography at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.

Art Science Exhibits Berlin

 

Gears up to travel Ocean deep 2020 - Deadline Nov. 7th, 2019

 

Having just caught our breath from exhibiting our Art/NaturSci Pavilion at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, an official of the 2019 Venice Biennale, we begin with new call outs for 2020:

 

The Ocean deep exhibition program is in development to travel to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Trieste, Italy and Swiss locations, with the possibility of landing us, once again, at the Venice Biennale in 2021. 

The world's oceans are 80 - 90% empty of life formerly observed. Overfishing and pollution from pesticides used in unsustainable farming practices, and other nonsensical ventures valuing production over function, brought us here. Alongside captivating artworks, we plan to present real life solutions on how to begin to manage this devastation of the deep. 

Participating artists will be provided with letters of invitation. Our letters have helped many international artists find sponsorship from universities, communities, galleries, and/or countries. Participants in our former exhibitions traveled with us to the 2019 Venice Biennale. Many of these artists found support via our recommendations, to come to Berlin and to Venice with their work, and many continue professional relationships with us worldwide. 

Deadline: 
07/November/2019
