ATTEMPT 4 - International Contest for Experiment in Visual Arts

Jan Tarasin Art Gallery in Kalisz, Poland invites you to participate in the Attempt 4 - International Contest for Experiment in Visual Arts. 

Attempt 4 is a competition for artists, graduates of artistic universities.

Thanks to the open formula - we invite you to send works related to the need to experiment, and thus take risks, interventions or uncontrolled actions in the field of artistic practices, regardless of formal workshop.

The aim of the contest is best formulated by the following words of Jan Tarasin: "Art constantly repeats attempts" and "good artwork always stimulates."The art world is a dangerous expedition of imagination towards the immeasurable, unstable and pulsating world of which we are part. Taming the imagination with the unbalanced, changing rhythm of dramatic conflicts and monotonous repetitions is done through openness to the relativism of perceiving space, time, boundaries, scale and significance of micro-history. This also allows for attempts to convert the language of the conventional symbols into a suggestive expression of the autonomous forms and signs, to replace the static descriptions (...) with the experience of a dynamic spectacle. Relativism and risk - provoking the imagination - demand new, precise decisions, solutions and arrangements, require constant confrontation, constant intellectual effort, do not allow for a state of complacency or failure to pay attention…

The above excerpts from Jan Tarasin's essays continue to be timely. In the field of visual arts, new media, science and philosophy cause the system of challenges to become dynamic but not abandon the most important questions as well as creative, experimental creation.

We are curious to what dangerous expeditions of imagination artists will take us when they make further... “attempts.” We invite you to participate in Attempt 4 contest.

Carrying Across - Crossing Disciplines as a Form of "Translation"

Share

City:

Eligibility:

For Interim's July issue, we are seeking work that crosses disciplines in the form of "translation." The origin of the word translate means "to carry across." While translation usually occurs across languages, we are looking specifically for work that is carried across one art form to the other, or work that seeks to create new forms altogether. Perhaps you've created dance informed by the structure of a particular sonnet, or you've taken a famous dance or performance art piece you found inspiring and translated its rhythm, structure, and images into a poem. We are looking for this kind of challenging work. 

We are open to work produced in English as well as work produced in other languages that has been translated to English. If the poetry is written in another language and translated into English and then turned into a performance (or performance into poetry), we are happy to consider it. As with any translations, the original and the translated work should be submitted together (for both discipline translation and language translation). Collaborations and experimental work are very welcome here as we believe the truth is always experimental. Please make certain all collaborators are informed of the submission and general guidelines in terms of rights and rights reversion. 

We are looking for poetry in performative forms, performance in poetic forms, and anything that exists interstitially between poetry and performance. We are open to artwork, new media, and hybrid works of poetry. For reference, we define performance as any form of theater, dance, dance theater, movement theater, videos of dance and movement, and anything that falls under the umbrella of performance art. Artwork (paintings, drawings, sculpture) related to this theme will also be considered.

Please familiarize yourself with our previous performance + poetry issue: Vol. 35, Issue 2

Poems and Translations of Written Poetic Work: Submit three to six poems in a single document. 

Hybrid, Video, and All Multimedia Work: Please include all work in a single file whenever possible. 

Artwork: Please upload up to six (6) high-res files containing your work, preferably in PNG or JPG format, 800-1500 pixels wide. 

For All Submissions: If any of the work included in your submission is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw the submission containing that file using Submittable. There is no need to notify us of withdrawals outside our Submittable account.

Copyright and Permissions: If you are using music or translating another wriiter's work across languages or disciplines, please make certain to gain permission to use this prior to submitting it to us. We take copyright seriously. 

Deadline: April 15, 2019

We look forward to spending time with your work!

Eligibility:

Be a part of an immersive experience, experimental installation and performance exploring layers of confusion and belonging through sound, light and objects.

I am a MA performance design student at the University of Leeds, and I am currently working in collaboration with Jonathan Parker (hoppla creative and Inkwell arts) on an extension of a piece developed in Germany whilst on an artist residency. The piece is story, and originally an object and promenade performance, I am developing it into a sound installation with interactive live elements.

 

I have two roles to fill:

 

1 – speakers/performers: I need people who are confident learning a piece of text and reciting it in a not-so-traditional manner. I am looking for a variety of languages, and if possible some people confident in sign language.

 

2 – makers  (painters, illustrators, writers, sculptors, fabricators etc): in response to a prompt and/or a piece of text form the story, I would like to create a set of relics, a sort of living history of the piece. The audience will then be encouraged to add to this archive, and expand its presence.

The piece(s) would be displayed alongside the installation, in the foyer at stage@leeds, on the 5th Feb.

 

I aim to have about 7 showings through the day, (of roughly 15-20 audience members each time) so it would be fab to get loads of people and mediums involved, and a great way to push the boundaries of the University of Leeds Theatre.

If you or anyone you know would be up for it let me know. It would a great thing to be involved in etc (UOL MA collaborative, experimental, cross disciplinary, interactive work).

 

Both of these are unpaid roles, however, I can provide tea and/or vegan snacks.

Let me know what you think and if you need extra details.
