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.

Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies

Share

Category:

Country:

A Studio in the Woods is now accepting applications for Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. Residencies are 6 weeks, will take place between September 2020 and May 2021, and include a $2500 stipend and $2000 materials budget.

Rising Residencies invite artists to examine the severity of the climate crisis and be agents of change to guide our collective understanding, response, and vision as we shape our shared future. New Orleans and the inhabitants of our region are frequently invoked as some of the most vulnerable to the effects of environmental degradation. While sea levels, temperatures and emotions are rising, our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the reckoning and hope which are required in the ways humans interact with shifting urban and natural ecosystems. As the climate crisis moves beyond coastal communities and permeates the collective understanding of the future, the challenges faced by Southern Louisiana resonate exponentially. We look to artists to ignite our imaginations, illuminate our challenges, and offer new ways to examine the world.

Rising Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.

Proposals are due by April 13th and residencies will be awarded by June 12th, 2020.

Playing for Time - call out for 13-18's

Share

Type:

Eligibility:

We’re looking for one individual or group aged 13-18 to create a brand new piece of music in response to the current climate emergency. 

As part of the project you’ll receive a budget of £200, support from a professional musician, and the opportunity to record your work and perform it live. 

The theme

“We are right now at the beginning of a climate and ecological crisis. Now is not the time for speaking politely. Now is the time to speak clearly. We need to call it what it is: an emergency.”
Greta Thunberg

On Friday 20 September young people around the world walked out of school to demand action on global warming and climate change. They say that the steps taken by governments and corporations aren’t enough - they’re just playing for time, delaying the inevitable. Drastic action is needed today to really make a difference.

Music is a powerful tool for raising awareness and motivating people into action. We will support you to think creatively about environmental issues, and inspire change through music. We want you to be playful and ambitious - this is your chance to create something for the future. 

What’s involved

You will:

  • Create new music in response to the theme (this could be 2-3 short pieces or one longer piece) between November 2019 and March 2020 
  • Record your music professionally at Box Yard Studios in Manchester
  • Showcase your work at our Sing City live night in March 2020

We will:

  • Connect you with a professional musician who will guide and support you throughout the creative process
  • Give you a budget of £200. This could be spent on: 
  • Field trips to spark creative ideas
  • Artist fees (e.g. if you would like to bring in other people to work with you such as a band, AV artist, dancer or filmmaker)
  • Equipment/instruments/materials needed to create and perform

Who it’s for

  • Individuals or groups aged 13-18
  • Based in Greater Manchester, Cheshire or Merseyside

Whether you see yourself as a composer, songwriter or producer, whether you use acoustic instruments or electronically generated sounds - we’re interested in hearing from musicians of all genres and backgrounds.

How to apply

Please complete a short online form* telling us a bit about yourself, your musical interests and experience, and why you are interested in this opportunity.

Deadline: Mon 28 Oct, 10am
