Eligibility:

GearBox Gallery invites submissions to our 2021 juried exhibition, Hierarchy.

Hierarchy is a system that ranks people or things according to importance or power. (1) Social and racial hierarchies are systems of stratification based on the belief that some groups of people are superior to others based on a variety of attributes such as gender, identity, race, ethnicity, religion and social class. Movements such as Black Lives Matter and MeToo continue to draw attention to perceived racial and gender hierarchy, addressing systemic racism and gender discrimination. (2) Hierarchy may be applied to ecology and how the interaction of living things maintain a natural balance or how its imbalance may lead to the emergence of a pandemic and even global climate change. (3) Maslow's hierarchy of needs addresses psychological needs. On a personal level we generally prioritize our daily actions, relationships and decisions in some type of order or sequence, and prioritize the value of a wide array of materials and commodities based on strength, rarity or perceived desirability. (4) As artists our work reflects our values and how we respond to societal and personal systems. The work also speaks to our personal hierarchy with regard to the materials and moves that we make to best express those values and feelings.

"UNLOCKED” PROJECT 2021-OPEN CALL.

Eligibility:

YOUNG ARTISTS’ ONLINE SELECTED EXHIBITION

Artists are invited to submit their works for an online project and exhibition organised by Emergent Art Space in collaboration with the emergent artist/curator Maria Di Gaetano.

-ABOUT EMERGENT ART SPACE

Founded in 2012, Emergent Art Space is an international non-profit organization based in San Francisco, California. Its mission is to give exposure to young artists around the world and to promote cross-cultural dialogue, exchange, and communication through art. We welcome artists in all fields of visual arts, still in school or under 30.
We believe that the visual language of art has the power to communicate across geographic and cultural distances, to open new perspectives on our experience of the world, and to facilitate the understanding of experiences and traditions different from our own.

-ABOUT “ULOCKED”

“Unlocked” is an experimental project which intends to create synergies among young artists, breaking barriers of time and space, reality, words, and media, giving space only to the intrinsic meaning of art as an intuitive and aesthetic way of knowing, - that involves mind and feelings and - it is worldwide shareable. Being in lock down has had a strong impact on our social and economic life but first and foremost in our way of dealing with our emotions. A similar strong impact will have the end of the lock down - in the near future. Lots of people feel drained and oppressed and even scared about the future. “Unlocked” aims to catch an emotional moment in between the end of the lock down and the beginning of the new “normality”. “Unlocked” wants to recognise, extrapolate, and transform feelings into art and communication. 

-PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

5 artists will be selected based on their 3 works submitted.
The weekend after the selection we will have a zoom meeting to know each other and start the project together. Time to be agreed with the artists.
We will try to discuss and work with these questions:
-What is art for you?
-How did you experience the pandemic?
-Is it true that Art “cleans from the soul the dust of every day’s life?”
-Are you concerned about the next future?
-What kind of feelings did you experience during the “lockdown”?
-What kind of feelings are you experiencing now after the “lockdown”?
- “Unlocked”. What does this word mean for you? Let’s define it. -reality -art -barriers -freedom.

-WHAT WE WILL BE DOING:

As the idea was born during the uncertainty of the post lockdown, - it was thought best to – develop it online. It would be great therefore, to meet up all together in person later on or when the restrictions will ease to put our creative minds together under the stunning London’s sky!
Taking the questions above as - guideline, this project will ask you to examine and assess your own feelings and thoughts in relation to your life, the way you make art and how we can express them. -We will be working together, creating, and operating as follow:

1. We will create a private group on Facebook among us, in order to easily get in touch and be reachable.
2. We will develop an artistic research practice based on open talks on Zoom to know better the way we think, create, and work.
3. No strict time, media or exercises will be imposed, but as little as punctuality and reliability will be asked in order to make sure everything works well for everyone and the project will go ahead smoothly.
4. Since the project aims to put together words and creativity, we will be writing some small texts and creating some artworks.
5. The concept/theme we will be working on will be around the meaning of being “Unlocked”.
6. Instructions will be given to everyone, but on-going ideas or changes from the artists will be discussed and eventually considered.
7. The meetings will last 2 weekends. Ideally Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. Time to be agreed. It would be great if we stick with these days although flexibility will be given according to our own needs and it will be discussed and agreed on by - all participating artists.
8. At the ends of our 2 weekends’ meetings, we will all have - an additional 2 weeks to prepare ourselves for the online exhibition. The content of the exhibition will be all or some of our works, our texts put together as a small catalogue/magazine and one of two of our zoom meetings (if everyone agrees). Everything will be shared on the Emergent Art Space website, which is supporting this project and
cultural dialogues among artists from all over the world. Everyone will be free to share the link to their own website, social and platform. A participation certificate will be given to everyone.
9. The 5 artists who will be working on this project will be then invited to be part of the amazing world of the Emergent Art Space’s platform.
10. I hope you will be joining me. Free yourself and relax! We will be a bunch of people who love art and want to communicate something with it to the world

The Walk - An Open call for London based visual artists with lived experience of migration.

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Deptford X, in partnership with Lewisham Borough of Culture, The Migration Museum and The Walk are delighted to announce an opportunity for an ambitious commission by a London-based visual artist/artist collaboration with lived experience of migration.

This opportunity is for artists with lived experience of migration who are resident in London. Applications by artists who live in, are connected to, or able to demonstrate connections to, Lewisham will also be prioritised

The commissioned artwork will be central to the welcome provided to Little Amal in her arrival in the London Borough of Lewisham. The selected artist will work closely with the Artistic Director of The Walk, who sets the broader artistic vision of the project as a whole, to develop this commission for the Lewisham stage of the project.

When developing your proposal, you are invited to consider the impact your installation/art work will have on 9 year old Little Amal when she encounters it. As a child, she may well be at once curious, enchanted, bewildered and delighted by the sights, smells and people of Deptford. There will be people to greet and welcome her but how will she interact with your proposed art work? What impression will it leave on her? Amal will have previously arrived in the UK via Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury before stepping foot in London. She will first arrive in Deptford, Lewisham, one of the city’s most diverse and lively neighbourhoods. Her first impression of London will be Deptford on market day, and your artwork.

May I...?

Art Show. Open Call.

StartaArta is seeking artwork for inclusion in “May I …” art show.

To celebrate the arrival of spring and mark the long anticipated art awakening, we are casting an artist Open Call for a new show of contemporary art in New York City. The show’s title "MAY I...?" will be an art exhibition to highlight artistic creative intention. The show shall honor contemporary artists displaying the meaning and mood of the times.

Through this show we hope to praise the power of the individual and the collective human spirit, and our capacity to endure. We hope to see how the community of artists have reacted to challenges and remained resilient under pressure. What better time to capture the moral, intellectual and cultural climate of the times than during our slow emergence from this crisis.

With the prompt proposed in the show's title, we invite artists to engage in the creative challenge by adding a verb, or phrase which best completes the question “MAY I __?” based on your emotions, feelings and insight developed during the past year. Complete the phrase that reflects your understanding of the new reality, or where you stand right now, or that has developed from your recent history, or the future we face. To reinforce your feelings, based on your word or phrase, we ask that you introduce the art works you are submitting for the show in May.

Your proposed artwork should reflect upon those feelings. We welcome contemporary art of all mediums and expressions which synchronize with this vision and statement.

When submitting the artwork please add your own verb or phrase to 'May I..?." to complete the sentence.

The exhibition will be held at StartaArta exhibition space in 220 23rd Street, Manhattan, NY from May 6th – May 14th, 2021. An opening reception will be held on Thursday May 6th, 2021 from 6pm to 8pm.

The “May I …” exhibition is for all artists working in all traditional and non‐traditional 2D and 3D media. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. Limited edition prints/photographs are accepted.

Artists may submit up to five works. Artwork must be installation-ready and appropriately framed. All works must be for sale. StartaArta will not withhold any commission for the sale of the art work. All sales will be handled by the artists. The application fee is $ 35. The fee covers the show’s operating expenses. Selected artists will be responsible for delivery and pick-up.
