Sheroes in Quarantine

City:

Eligibility:

In these hard times of isolation, economic crisis and social distancing Lon-art, more than ever, wants to support its community of artists exploring alternative ways to deliver events. For this occasion at Lon-art we have decided to created: ‘Sheroes in Quarantine’: an exhibition that will be delivered online on both our website and social media channels. The initiative wants to highlighting women’s issues and roles during the COVID-19 social crisis to continue contributing to positive changes in our society, from a gender perspective. 

We strongly believe that now is the time to re-think our current social structure and reinvent the way we live and interact with each other. We are in dire need of creative minds, activists and a sense of togetherness to be able to build a more sustainable society where nature, women and marginalised groups are respected and part of the decision-making.

This is a critical moment for our community of artists, where some of them might be already suffering the consequences of isolation and social economic crisis. The initiative will offer visibility not only to their art but also to the many women’s issues that are arising during this time. Our concerns about violences against women have raised up even more, women are exposed not just to domestic violence, but also to other displacements in our current society (you can read more here).

So if you are in the process of or planning to create work that will tell yours or other women’s stories during the COVID-19 time, please apply! We would love to hear from you. Submissions are free and open until the 12th of April.

Open calls for artists of any discipline

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Aimed to promote and defend gender equality in art and culture, the `La cultura es femenina´ Prize is launching two open calls and two artistic residences whose deadline for entries is January the 28th, 2020. As a novelty in its 2020 edition, music has been added to the already large array of disciplines this prize had included in previous editions.

Call for artists. The first open call addresses to authors working within any artistic discipline (painting, sculpture, illustration, photography, video art, performance etc.) who deal with the visual representations of women in art, nowadays. Thus, it invites applications from artists who dedicate their work to the representation of contemporary women, and to how artists represent #lamujerhoy (#womantoday). The works selected through this open call will be presented within a multimedia exhibition to be held at Espacio Cultural El Tanque (Tank Tenerife) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands. The `La cultura es femenina´ Prize of Euros 700 and a trophy will be awarded to one single work chosen among the selected works. 

Call for female music artists. The second open call focuses on promoting and supporting emergent music artists residing in the Canary Islands and is addressed both to female music bands and single female singers who are at the beginning of their career or who have been carrying it out for a few years now. The selected artist or band will be invited to perform at the gala evening scheduled on Saturday, the 15th of February, 2020, will also be awarded a single prize of Euros 700 and the trophy of `La cultura es femenina´ 2020 Prize.

Call for Urban Art and Literature residencies. Furthermore, two residences - one for Urban Art (graffiti, murals, street installations, urban collages, etc.) and one for Literature - have been launched. In the latter, writers, thinkers and theorists are invited to tell the contemporary story of how and if women's representations in the arts and museums have been changing. Each of the two residencies will be 15 days long and is offering Euros 1.000 gross. Additionally, the trophy of `La Cultura Es Femenina´ 2020 Prize will be awarded at the gala evening scheduled on Saturday, February the15th, 2020.

More about `La cultura es femenina´ Prize. `La Cultura Es Femenina´ Prize is part of a larger initiative called `Why culture matters´ that is an interdisciplinary project, which studies, collects, interprets objective data having an impact on culture and creativity, and gives public dissemination of the knowledge and conclusions. It is a project whose mission is to give objective answers to the question of `Why culture is important in equality?´ from different points of view and disciplines. The project also aims to help speeding up the process of achieving equality in culture.

Why do we need to talk about women and culture? In the art and culture world, it is difficult to find women in prominent positions. Females are mostly depicted as ‘mothers’ and carrying out everyday household tasks, as opposed to holding political positions, for instance. This is just an example of what we can find when we focus on inequality in the field of culture and the depiction of women in art. The project #laculturaesfemenina gathers different fields of contemporary artistic practices, acts in different spaces and in doing so it engages female artists from various backgrounds to encourage creativity in equality. In this way, it points out the underrepresentation of women in arts and the existing gender inequality in the cultural sector. For this, rather than just one, #laculturaesfemenina is a sum of projects: it consists of cultural intervention projects in different areas by mostly female artists with works created by mostly female authors.

Organization and sponsors. `La cultura es femenina´ Prize is an initiative of El Laboratorio de Investigación e Innovación en Arquitectura, Urbanismo, Diseño y Turismo Avanzado (The Laboratory of Research and Innovation in Architecture, Urban Planning, Design and Advanced Tourism), a Tenerife based non profit, chaired by the Spanish architect Fernando Menis and is sponsored by el Ministerio de Cultura de España, El Cabildo de Tenerife and Fundación CajaCanarias.

Women's Art Via Engagement

Eligibility:

In addition to other subjects of interest to women,  artists are encouraged to create and submit art that tells a story about violence against women & girls -whether in the past or current. We gather art for display that shows how violence against women & girls is happening now, and how it's use in the past shows how women have been controlled through fear.

Rape keeps women from going outside and having a full life. Domestic violence keeps women in abusive relationships and away from their own personal power. Honor killings keep women from leading full lives & having options. These are just a few ways that women are controlled by violence.

Women need to continue to speak up and let their voices be heard. Men who support women need to get on board. Women need platforms for their opinions and their voices to be heard. This art show will allow viewers to discuss what they see, and what the status of women's & girls lives are like.

During the art show, we will offer art workshops to make art about issues women are particularly concerned about. To find out about discussions, hours, and opportunities to make art during the show

Actual art must be received at gallery by January 26, 2020
