OpenCall - WAVING Conference - November 4-6, 2022 
Applications until 30/09/22 
 
The entire universe is waving. 
The phenomenon concerns many issues, both scientific and artistic. Waving includes natural phenomena occurring in nature, as well as civilization, social and cultural processes. Space kinetics, particle motion, gravity, sound, resonance, tactics and haptics are some of the important elements of modern intermedia art using advanced technology. 
 
The Art Space Faculty invites you to participate in the conference. 

Applications including: 

  • first name and last name 
  • title of the paper 
  • short bio 
  • abstract (max 300 characters) 

please send by 30/09/2022 to the following address konferencja.kos@asp.krakow.pl

Collide Residency Award

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Arts at CERN launches a new call for Collide, its flagship residency programme, in partnership with the City of Barcelona. Artists from all around the world are invited to submit their proposals for a research-led residency. The laureate, an individual artist or artistic collective, will be invited to spend three months dedicated to artistic research and exploration between CERN and Barcelona.

Collide calls for artists inspired by the processes of fundamental science and interested in interacting with the scientific communities at CERN and Barcelona. We invite proposals that focus on the artist’s current practice and are open to working with physicists, engineers, IT experts and laboratory staff.

The selected artist or artistic collective will receive a three-month fully funded residency award that will allow them to spend two months at CERN in Geneva, followed by one month in Barcelona (not necessarily consecutively), hosted at Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production in Barcelona and in connection with the city's scientific laboratories. The scope of the artist's proposal should include a research period to be developed at CERN and a second developmental phase in Barcelona, where the artists will have the opportunity to expand their research through Barcelona’s rich scientific and cultural network, as well as to engage with a wide range of communities.

The award includes the following support and conditions:

− 15 000 Swiss Francs as a research and artistic production award.

− Personal allowance for two months at CERN in Geneva and one month in Barcelona.

− Travel and accommodation costs within a fixed budget for the three months of the artistic residency at CERN and in Barcelona.

The recipient of the residency award will be expected to:
− Engage in research based on the proposal submitted to the Collide Call for Entries.
− Meet regularly with the CERN scientific partner(s) to discuss the process of artistic research, exploration and discovery, and additionally work with other scientists.
− Establish dialogue with scientists and researchers at the research centres, universities, and factories of creativity, with the support and guidance of the team from the Institute of Culture of Barcelona (ICUB) and other scientific institutions in Barcelona.
− Give one talk in both locations during the residency.
− Communicate regularly with the curators and teams of Arts at CERN and Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production.
− Deliver a residency report after the residency is completed in both locations.
− Finalise the artwork resulting from the residency within up to six months following the residency period.

Prize Summary: 
15000 Swiss Francs
Prizes Details: 

The selected artist or artistic collective will receive a three-month fully funded residency award that will allow them to spend two months at CERN in Geneva, followed by one month in Barcelona where they can expand their research and engage with the scientific laboratories of the city while being hosted at Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production in Barcelona.

The award includes:

− 15 000 Swiss Francs as a research and artistic production award.

− Personal allowance for two months at CERN in Geneva and one month in Barcelona.

Exploring Patient Data and Surgical Healthcare

City:

Eligibility:

Medical interventions and decisions are driven by data from an increasingly intricate array of measurements and tests, which creates a vivid representation of each patient. This data representation is often complex and obscure to the patient, yet has a profound impact on the trajectory of care.

We are looking for two artists, one focussing on prostate and the other on pancreatic cancer, to develop online based projects that bring together engineers, clinicians and patients to share their experiences of clinical decisions and explore what is needed for patients to feel informed in the face of complex data.

Using arts practice, we seek to facilitate conversations between these stakeholders and develop a final output building on workshop findings. The output is open but should communicate workshop discussions and findings, provoke further engagement with the topics and/or have potential as a communication aid between patients and doctors.

Collaborator Role

Through this artistic collaboration we are interested in exploring emerging themes in clinical practice, such as:

  • the relationship between patients, their data and clinical practice
  • the role of uncertainty and managing risk in clinical interventions
  • the challenge of keeping patients engaged and informed when clinical procedures are becoming increasingly sophisticated

The collaborators will work with a project team from the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, which brings engineers and clinicians together to develop technologies for planning, conducting and rehabilitation from surgery, with chances to also share and learn from each other.

Budget and Timescale

Each of the two projects will offer a maximum of £3,000 in total for artist time and expenses, workshop materials and final outputs. There is no current timeline, but we hope to begin the project in March and expect it will take 2 – 4 months to complete.

Deadline: 
22/February/2021

Open call for Mountains to Oceans: the paradox exhibition *EXTENDED*

Artistic field:

Eligibility:

Ocean Exhibit Series 2020
Mountains to Oceans: the paradox exhibition

Exhibit dates: 1 - 30th September 2020

In the event of a cancellation, the exhibit will take place here in Spring 2021.

Time is pressing.

In over 4.5 billion years of geological time, earth’s carbon system has suffered few extremes like today's. We and our fellow species are in trouble - here and now. 

​The immediacy of the effects of weather changes, humankind’s degradation of the forests and oceans, and the intimacy of the effects on us, in juxtaposition to geological time, is stunning, and is good reason to bury our heads in the age old sands. 

Alongside captivating works by a wealth of international artists, Art Science Exhibits brings nature science solutions into the conversation - such as ecosystem regeneration and clean-up - with the idea that when people begin to connect to the answers, change can occur. ​​​

____________________

Mountains to Oceans inaugural exhibition will take place at our main location in the very heart of Berlin, the Grand Hall of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin’s Thaer-Institut of Agriculture, next door to our friends at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (Natural History Museum). This site is three stories high and especially suited for large sculpture. 

We plan to travel some works in this exhibit to museum locations in Berlin, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, the USA, and potentially on to the 2021 Venice Biennale.

Participants in our former exhibitions have traveled with us to the 2019 Venice Biennale. Many of these artists found support to exhibit through our recommendations and many continue professional relationships with us.
