The exhibition will be set up at the Palmieri's Foundation, an ancient and Renaissance location in the heart of the old city of Lecce from 7th to 21th December 2020. Lecce is the capital of Baroque in Southern Italy, also known for the beauty of its landscape and for paper mache. Florence of the south is called for its numerous architectural and artistic riches and heritage.

The show  is a research art project that testifies with an experiential and artistic approach, the interference that human activity has produced on the natural cycles of the planet, proposing a reflection of the impact of our species on Earth, more than ever present in the moment of a global pandemic and which strongly questions the unstable balance between man and nature.

Between vision and perception, artists are asked to represent their point of view on the theme with their works, in line with an ecological vision of the world and reflecting on words such as: NATURE – NATURANS (Nature and artifice); SUSTAINABILITY – ADAPTATION (protection of animal and plant biodiversity, separate collection of waste, plastic, drifters and pollution, natural resources, eco-sustainable materials etc); CHANGE – COEXISTENCE (climate change, solidarity between individuals and the environment, optimistic visions, aesthetic balance of nature, etc.).

Covid-19 Pandemic allow us to reflect on the real power of art, to restore, uplift, inspire and offer to all a hope for the future. International artists are welcome to submit works before of September, 30, 2020.This is a great opportunity not to be missed!

COMEL Award Contemporary Art: Aluminium Bonds

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The contemporary art COMEL award Vanna Migliorin, the international competition dedicated to the creative use of aluminium, is back for its VIII edition.

All artists 18 years old and above who live or work within European borders are called to challenge themselves each year with a theme related to the characteristics of this splendid and surprising metal, aiming to discover, or highlight, its expressive, aesthetic, communicative and constructive potentialities. This year's theme is Aluminium Bonds.

Aluminium has a natural tendency to join, connect and merge with other metals, in fact in nature it is never found free.

It is one of the few elements of the periodic table to be trivalent, meaning that, each of its atom uses three electrons to combine with other elements. This exquisitely chemical characteristic is easily reflected in the metaphorical and symbolic understanding of the concept of bond and translates into the positive values of openness, generosity, exchange and desire to create links with other people.

All concepts that are supported and conveyed by the COMEL Award which at each edition becomes an opportunity for artists from different countries to meet, and encourages the sharing and mutual enrichment of all participants.

Those values, this year, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, become even more important and deeply felt: bonds that remain strong despite the social distancing that we are required to maintain.  For this reason and in order to continue to look to the future with positivity, the organizers have decided to open the call even if there are still no certainties about the exit from the lockdown in almost all European countries. The intent is to open the registrations anyway, deadline is so far October 31st and hopefully the final exhibition will be held in the first months of next year.

Registration is free. Painting, sculpture, design, photography and installation artworks, using aluminium as their main element and respect the proposed theme, will be admitted. A jury of experts will choose 13 finalist works (13 such as the atomic number of aluminium), which will be exhibited at the Spazio COMEL Arte Contemporanea gallery in Latina. Among these, a winner will be selected who will receive a cash prize (3500 euros), and will be the protagonist of a solo show with a dedicated catalogue.

Deadlines of the exhibition and of the award ceremony will be communicated as soon as possible.

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Are you or someone you know looking for artistic exposure in NYC?

Big Screen Plaza is now accepting submissions for #ArtOnScreen, a curated series of digital and artistic programming that will be displayed throughout 2020. We’re eager to showcase work from many creative disciplines. Please note this call may not be best-suited for every type of artist or artistic discipline. However, if it matches your current artistic goals, or your work, it could be a perfect opportunity — check the guidelines below before submitting!

About Big Screen Plaza:
Big Screen Plaza is a 10,000 sq. ft. public plaza in New York City that features a 30 ft. HD digital screen. Throughout the year, the screen displays a rotating collection of digital exhibitions, including photography, animation, visual art, and more. Located between the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, and the art galleries of Chelsea, the plaza’s central location provides an ideal venue for generating exposure for local and international artists to engage the New York community.

GUIDELINES:

• The #ArtOnScreen series is not exhibited with any audio, so all work submitted must be able to be viewed and enjoyed without any audio. That does not mean the files cannot contain audio, but please note all work will be silently displayed to the public, similar to the digital billboards in Times Square.
• Content must be suitable to be displayed publicly and viewed by an audience of all ages. 
• Please don’t send works-in-progress. All work must be completed upon submission.
• Submissions are accepted on a year-round, rolling basis. Due to the quantity of submissions, please allow up to three months for your work to be reviewed. No calls, please.

BEST WORK TO SUBMIT:

• Photography – all types!
• Studio and Visual Art
• Fashion and Art Films
• Animation of all type that is not dependent on dialogue
• Timelapse or Aerial / Drone Footage
• International or local NYC content – we screen it all
• Cutting edge, contemporary work that can engage and excite the New York public

View Our Current List of Exhibitions on our website for Examples

WHAT NOT TO SUBMIT:

• Any work that features heavily-synced dialogue (Note on subtitles in FAQ)
• Any long-form video content. Artist exhibitions per artist are 10-30 minutes each.
• Documentary content (we love it, we just find it often doesn’t work as well in this format.)
• Work that is primarily corporate-branded or advertising-based (Unfortunately we’re not looking to display mere commercials or ad-based work, though there are exceptions to every rule.)
• Any work with graphic violence or nudity
• Sculpture or any performance-based work which requires in-person or 3D display. All exhibitions will only occur by being broadcast on our digital screen. Photos of sculpture could work, but we cannot install work into our space.

05/31/2020
