QUEER SEX EXHIBITION OPEN CALL

Share

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

This exhibition will contribute a queer visual vocabulary to erotica, recognising it as an influential force in fine arts. With LGBTQ+ representation becoming more commonly widespread, our queerness - our identities, our fantasies & our practices - is at times sacrificed or fetishised in an appeal to acceptance.

Shucking off this approach, queer erotica lays bare the way our lives (within ourselves and with others) push social and sexual boundaries. Across a diverse range of artistic mediums, we celebrate, mourn and fantasise about our sex lives and selves.

This exhibition will create a prioritisation from which to value forms of erotica that not only invite a queered gaze but incite a deeper connection to the whispered meanings of self and sexuality.

Deadline: 
20/May/2022

Alternative Night of Experimental Film

Share

Eligibility:

After three successful screening events attended by wonderful creators, the Alternative Night of Experimental Film is back - once again inviting submissions of short experimental films and moving image works that will compose the programme for an informal screening in an alternative music venue in Kingston upon Thames, London. 

We are particularly interested in works by emerging filmmakers and artists based in London; the aim of the event is to create a platform for conversation and networking for those who are exploring the alternative creative paths through experimental cinema. 

This will be the platform's final screening instalment (for now) and we're so excited to welcome moving image enthusiasts of all kinds to a night of immersive films and engaging conversations. The screening date is scheduled for Friday 3 June 2022.

Theme : EXPERIENCE 

In open and imaginative interpretations we ask for films to be engaged with definitions of the word. Below are some examples:

1. direct observation of or participation in events as a basis of knowledge
2. something personally encountered, undergone, or lived through
3. the conscious events that make up an individual life
4. the events that make up the conscious past of a community or nation or humankind generally
5. the act or process of directly perceiving events or reality

We are looking to present a programme comprising of diverse voices and original visions. 

We are aware of limitations of access and challenges of both the film industry and the art world, and our mission is to support the emerging talent in the field of moving image as a multidisciplinary endeavour, creating a community that provides space for growth and mutual encouragement. 

Our event will include a screening, artists' talks, and a space for informal networking opportunities for filmmakers, moving image and sound artists, musicians. Everyone welcome. 

 

RULES:

Films should be no longer than 15 minutes.

We encourage submissions from students, recent graduates, or those without formal film education.

Films have to be in English language or be subtitled in English. All films with dialogue are asked to provide a subtitle file.

Films should be produced after January 2019.

Currently we will prioritise submissions from filmmakers based in London who will be able to attend the screening event. 

Prizes Details: 

This is a non-competitive showcase of the best recent short experimental films with informal networking opportunities.

Deadline: 
30/April/2022

Call out: Dreaming with Machines

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Are you interested in algorithmic technologies, music production and sampling within your music? 

Join Manchester sound artist Vicky Clarke for four days of making music with machine learning to create a series of audiovisual dreamscapes ready for transmission on the internet.

Machine learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI), where neural networks detect patterns in sets of data and use them to make predictions. As an emerging field in music making, sonic AI has great potential for how we compose, generate material and collaborate with machines. 

Open to people of marginalised genders aged 18-30*, on this project you’ll get the opportunity to explore a range of accessible tools to generate sound, text and images using a variety of open source training models. 

Together you’ll look at the work of groundbreaking artists and technologists working in the field and consider artistic, ethical and conceptual issues around bias, autonomy and creativity. 

There is no need to be able to code, the project is aimed at beginners! 

Dates and Location

5, 6, 9 and 10 May 2022
9.30am – 4.30pm
SeeSaw, Manchester, M1 6NG

We can cover travel costs for those who need it, plus a £25 daily allowance.

What’s Involved

On this project you will:

Learn about machine learning (a branch of AI) and how it can be used creatively for music making

Gain practical skills using a range of accessible tools and interfaces covering sound, text and image generation

Discuss our relationship to these emerging creative technologies and consider issues of bias, ethics and artistic autonomy

Create artworks; a series of dreamscapes and human-machine collaborations to share online
