Eligibility:

Exhibition 15.1.2021 – 12.3.2021

The 1.5-degree target is understood to mean the goal of limiting the man-made global temperature increase due to the greenhouse effect to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 from the level before the start of industrialization. Almost all the states of the world have signed a treaty with the Paris Convention, according to which they intend to make efforts to achieve the 1.5 degree target. Climate researchers doubt that we will reach this goal, we would already be at 2 degrees. There is a lack of political will. Fridays for Future are fighting to keep the contract.

What has to change to reach the goal? Researchers have developed scenarios that show ways. For example, the price of CO2 increases to 100€/ton. Renewable energies like wind power, solar energy are used instead of fossil fuels. We humans live well and in a climate-friendly way.

Which pictures do artists create on this topic? We are looking forward to your exciting submissions!

Call for Videos: The Right to a Future: Fighting Climate Change Music Video

Learn more here: https://www.batesbelk.com/the-right-to-a-future-fighting-climate-change-music-video-call-for-entries

Sea levels are rising! Ice sheets are melting faster than ever! There are too many greenhouse gases! The Earth is on fire! Global temperatures are increasing rapidly! Weather patterns are out of control! Forests are being destructed! Animals are dying! People are dying!

What does the future hold? What will life be like for our young people, our communities and future generations? Will there even be a future? And if so, what kind of future will it be?

The year 2020 saw continued tremendous change with youth activists, school pupils and communities coming together across the planet to protest against the lack of climate leadership from world leaders and to underscore the sense of urgency of the severe climate crisis we are facing.

And this youth movement must continue in 2021 and beyond to keep pressure on all world leaders that can help reverse the detrimental effects of climate change.

New York City and Berlin-based record label BB3 Dynamics Records is going to create an educational music video called “The Right to a Future” to the accompanying music written by Berlin-based composer Bates Belk which is aimed at helping raise awareness and educating current and future generations about the importance of protecting the Earth’s environment now and in the future. To help us create “The Right to a Future” music video, we are asking people of all ages and languages from across the planet to send us their own videos of anything that they have filmed and recorded that shows their contribution and views on the importance of helping protect the Earth’s environment. Examples of videos that can be sent for this music video to help educate and raise awareness can be filmed recordings from people in countries all over the world of:

--powerful and emotional images filmed by you from climate strike protests

--active destruction images filmed by you of human beings destroying forests and oceans

--Factories emitting chemicals, smoke, toxic waste in the air and on the ground

--people enjoying parks, gardens, forests, mountains, beaches, lakes, oceans, deserts, farms, their own backyards

--people coming together to help save plants, land and animals from human destruction

--anything you have personally experienced and filmed wherever you are in the world that you feel demonstrates your part in climate protection no matter how big or small

--abstract and realistic visual art (photography, watercolor paintings, oil paintings, drawings etc.) created by you that reflects your climate protection vision and message

There is no right or wrong video to enter for this. It is your viewpoint wherever you are on the planet with whatever you have recorded and filmed. It is your experience and we want to share your unique experience, creativity views and visions in the music video that will then be distributed globally. You can be as creative and “out-of-the-box” as you want! We want you to! Do not hold back! Go for it!

Videos that get selected will then be edited together in Berlin, Germany to the song “The Right to a Future” written specifically for this project by composer Bates Belk that you can hear here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad11DWldqWg) with the goal of raising awareness and educating current and future generations about the importance of protecting the Earth’s environment. You have a message and we want to share your message! We want you to be part of this!

The final music video in early 2021 will then be:

--globally distributed via VEVO YouTube, Amazon, Apple Music, Vimeo and Tidal with much coverage in Europe, North America, Australia and Asia

--have specific distribution in Africa and South America

--sent to classrooms and educational facilities in countries and communities across the planet for inclusion in future environmental protection lessons for our youth

***Conditions of Submission of Your Video***

--Deadline for submission is 30 November 2020.

--There is NO entry fee.

--Videos can be any length you so choose…however just know that we will be editing many videos down to fit a short timeline for a cohesive storyline with the accompanying Bates Belk music. So, any video filmed by you between .10 seconds and 2 or 3 minutes should be fine. Again, any video that gets sent in will be edited down to fit the music and other videos sent in.

--If your video is selected, you will have your name in the “credits” section at the end of the video.

--There is a “Video Release Form” that you need to fill out and sign here. This is to ensure that BB3 Dynamics Records has the formal approval by you to use your video in “The Right to a Future” music video, but please note that you still own your video and that you may still use your video you have recorded and sent to BB3 Dynamics Records for other projects you so choose. The video you send in is a “non-exclusive” right and you still own your video.

DOWNLOAD HERE: https://www.batesbelk.com/bb3/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/The-Right-to-a-Future-Release-Form.pdf

--We will let you know in December 2020 if your video has been selected and will share the final edited music video with you in early 2021.

--Send (1) your video and (2) the filled out and signed “Video Release Form” to bb3dynamics@gmail.com

 

Help us spread the word within your communities, with your friends, with your families, your colleagues and associates where you work, in your schools and your classrooms!

A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace)

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Climate Art and Bridgepoint Rye, in collaboration with Sussex Wildlife Trust, are delighted to announce a call for applications from artists, creative practitioners, and environmental researchers to work on a site-responsive project during a three-month residency at Bridgepoint Creative Centre in Rye, East Sussex.Participants are invited to respond to the residency’s theme of transience, outlined below. Each applicant should clearly indicate how, during the three months of the programme, they will engage with the local community and connect with the ecological landscape of Rye.

The opportunity is open to 3 UK-based practitioners, with one space reserved for a Sussex-based participant. The residents will be provided with subsidised accommodation and studio space for the duration of the residency. Each participant will receive a monthly stipend of £500 and a production budget of £2,000. The residency will take place in January – March 2021. The deadline for applications is 8 November 2020 at 23:59. The programme – A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace) –   has been generously supported by Bridgepoint Rye and the Kowitz Family Foundation.

COVID-19 

We are committed to ensuring the safety of all residents, especially during the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak. We shall therefore be keeping the programme dates and format under constant review, in line with the latest governmental guidance. At the same time, we believe that now, as never before, the need for the exchange of ideas and community-focused projects is of paramount importance.

 

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY

The picturesque ruin of Camber Castle lies peacefully amid stretches of marshland over 1.5 km from the coast. It seems hard to believe that the splashing of the sea was once a constant sound here, rather than the bleating of sheep. Built on a shingle spit during Henry VIII’s rule, Camber Castle used to be an elaborate artillery fortification designed to defend the harbour and the towns of Rye and Winchelsea. Less than a hundred years after its completion, however, it was decommissioned – the receding sea left the castle inland, stranded and useless. 

During the residency, participants are invited to explore the broad themes of transience, ephemerality and perishability. From species extinction and habitat destruction to the impermanence of our familiar way of life, the discussion of these subjects has already become a part of our everyday conversations as we reflect on the changes forced upon us by the Covid-19 pandemic. Is a more nuanced understanding of transience a cause for resignation or an invitation to transform the relationship between human beings and other species? 

The programme – A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace) – will see 3 UK-based practitioners (with one place reserved for a Sussex-based participant) develop their site-responsive projects during a three-month residency at Bridgepoint Creative Centre located in Rye, East Sussex. Residents will also have access to Sussex Wildlife Trust’s sites located in Rye and an opportunity to work with the organisation’s staff and volunteers. Climate Art is a space for resident groups, artists and scientists to come together. Our practice stems from the understanding of public art as a form of meaningful engagement with diverse publics. That is why, at the application stage, all entrants are required to demonstrate a commitment to engagement with the local community, the ecological landscape of the town and its harbour.  

Applications are invited from practitioners working in any creative discipline (including, but not limited to, visual arts, architecture, design, performance art, film, dance, music, creative writing and others), as well as environmental-change researchers. Proposals may vary from detailed projects to preliminary ideas. Successful applicants will be expected to demonstrate clearly how they intend to develop their creative or academic work in response to the residency’s theme. While hoping that the three residents will find it inspiring to work alongside each other, Climate Art does not require a collaborative project to be the outcome of the residency.

The residency will run from mid-January to mid-March 2021 (exact dates TBC). Residents will benefit from subsidised accommodation and individual studio space for the duration of the residency. Each artist will receive a monthly stipend of £500 and a production budget of £2,000.We want the participants to make the most of the residency opportunity. It is understood that they may need to continue with some work or study commitments during the programme. We are happy to consider flexible arrangements, hoping that the residents will be in Rye for much of the working week and will take part in open studios and other events as part of the programme.

ABOUT CLIMATE ART

Climate Art is an interdisciplinary public art platform focused on climate change. Our site-responsive projects facilitate active cooperation between communities, artists, and scientists. 

At Climate Art, we encourage long-term, sustainable transformation through participatory public art that motivates us all to make positive adjustments to our daily lives. Our practice stems from the understanding of public art as a form of meaningful engagement with diverse groups of people rather than art located out-of-doors. Climate Art is a space for resident groups, creative practitioners and environmentalists to come together. 

 

ABOUT BRIDGEPOINT RYE

Bridgepoint is a new arts complex located in Rye. It is set in the context of a regeneration project, being undertaken by Martello Developments, which aims to convert a disused industrial part of the historic town into a vibrant campus, including an arts complex as well as housing and commercial activity. It is intended that the 20,000-square-foot Bridgepoint arts building will encompass artists’ studios, a large performance and rehearsal space, a commercial gallery, as well as other internal and external exhibition spaces.

The primary mission of the project is to provide a well-equipped and safe space for artists in an array of disciplines to contemplate and create, hopefully drawing inspiration from the area’s exceptional history and natural beauty.

 

ABOUT SUSSEX WILDLIFE TRUST

Sussex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex. We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast.

By working alongside local people, we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature, and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places. Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers. Sussex Wildlife Trust manages 465-hectare Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, which includes Camber Castle and Castle Water.

Corona and Climate Crisis

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Corona pandemic demands our attention. But the other existential issue, climate change, is still important. Our main question is, “What do we learn from the current Corona affliction to avoid the climate crisis?” We use the term crisis instead of change, because change sounds too soft and manageable.

Both crises have in common, as one cause, strong global mobility. Another is our lifestyle and our plundering of resources. The threat is different. With Corona it is acute. The state is reacting strongly, following the advice of science. In contrast, the climate crisis poses a particular threat to future generations. This threat will soon no longer be kept in check by acute measures. The state is reacting insufficiently and not following the science.

What do we learn from this, what do we change? With Corona, the home office functions as a substitute for travel, and closed shops limit our consumption. This has advantages for coping with the climate crisis as these measures also reduce CO2 emissions.

We do not know what good habits will remain post-Corona to counter the climate crisis. The new bike paths on the streets of Berlin are here to stay. That is not enough though, society must not leave it at that.

We see Corona as a global pandemic which, like the climate crisis, is forcing us to far-reaching changes in behaviour. We no longer want to submit to our fate, we want to shape it!

How do artists see this? What images do they find for this action?

Open Call

In an open call, we invite artists to submit contributions to the above-mentioned topic for a group exhibition in our gallery space.
Disciplines: object, sculpture, installation, photo, painting, drawing, printmaking, video, sound are all possible. A performative contribution such as performance, VJ or similar for the vernissage, artist talk or finissage is welcomed.

Since the Corona crisis still requires restrictions, we will adapt the exhibition organization and the program accordingly. We are therefore planning both an analog and a digital presentation.

GG3 is pleased to invite emerging and established artists to submit artworks to our 51st exhibition “Corona and Climate Crisis” from October to December of this year. This is a very special exhibition for us, where we hope for a great public response from guests, collectors, media and curators. We are looking for a diverse range of artworks in all media and styles. It will be a group exhibition that includes artworks created by contemporary artists and shows what is being produced today on the subject. This exhibition will be held in conjunction with the artists of Group Global 3000 and will be a celebration of art and sustainability. The gallery will promote the selected artists in the exhibition and will host a formal opening reception as well as an artist talk and an expert lecture during the course of the exhibition.

Presence: Presence for local artists is desired for the vernissage and the artist talk as well as supervision on a date of the exhibition.

The Oxford Arts Alliance is having a national juried exhibition in September called "Climate Change: What Will You Do To Help?". We're asking artists to respond to one or more of these questions with your art:

What can you do?

What will you do?

What are you doing?

What if we don’t?

Our juror for this themed exhibition is Emily Rosmus of the Ned Smith Center. Emily joined the Ned Smith Center in January 2019 and serves as the Education Coordinator, scheduling and leading educational programs aiming to bring art and nature together in a way that benefits both. She obtained a B.S. degree in Biology and a minor in Fine Arts from Saint Francis in Loretto, PA in 2014 and discovered her passion for environmental education shortly thereafter. She has always enjoyed the arts, dabbling in sketching, photography, and watercolor, and finds the Ned Smith Center a perfect environment to bring her two passions together and encourage others to do the same. She and her husband, Travis, recently bought their first home in Dauphin, PA, and live with their dog, Clara. When not working, she enjoys hiking, reading, running, and making sure Clara is living her best life.

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

Share

Country:

City:

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.
