Guest Room: OFFICE IMPART

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Guest Room aims to spark collaboration. Johanna Neuschäffer and Anne Schwanz, founders of the multi-dimensional space and platform for contemporary art OFFICE IMPART, have decided to collaborate with the artist Christian Mio Loclair, who works at the interface of artistic and scientific research.

Together, they have developed the following framework for your submissions: “Simultaneity”.

The complexity of our time can be described wonderfully with the word simultaneity. An either/or categorization becomes obsolete and truths and principles that seem to contradict each other enter into synergy. Creative processes and AI, natural phenomena and the metaverse, everyday processes and algorithms - how do these simultaneities have an effect on photographic image production?

July PleinAir Salon $33,000 Art Competition

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

The PleinAir Salon $33,000 Art Competition is a monthly online competition consisting of 19 categories. We award over $33,000 each year for this competition. The Annual Grand Prize winner receives a check for $15,000 and is featured on the cover of PleinAir Magazine. We award an additional $6,500 to the annual winners and award $1,100 monthly to the top three winners of each competition as well as a People’s Choice Award. Each of the 23 monthly winners will be automatically entered into the Annual Competition. The annual awards are presented live at the Plein Air Convention & Expo each spring.

 

Because this competition is created by PleinAir magazine, which features not only plein air paintings, but also studio paintings, all types of paintings are eligible and do not need to have been completed in plein air. As we know, many studio paintings start with plein air sketches, and many plein air painters paint figures and still life. Our interest is in rewarding great paintings.

An Urgent Situation: Rethinking Tourism through Architecture, Art and Community Pt.2

Category:

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

During phase two of An Urgent Situation, a series of online gatherings will focus on a specific task: the conceptual and physical development of Samong Haven Bali, a culture centre presently in development in rural North-West Bali, Indonesia.

This initiative offers participants a unique opportunity to propose and develop ideas that connect visitors and the visited, encourage cultural exchange and development, minimise environmental impact and contribute to conservation. Combining insights from phase one with new concepts and inspirations, the group will (a) script a manifesto for responsible and resilient development, and (b) create design proposals for Samong Haven Bali – plans for sustainable, low-impact constructions that reflect the manifesto’s ideals and are practically realisable.

It is hoped that phase three of this project (2023) will bring some of those plans to fruition on site in Bali. Residents participating in phase two’s online community will be prioritised for participation in phase three, working on the ground at Samong Haven Bali. The ability to participate in both phases is not a criterion for selection for phase two. However, to assist our planning for 2022 and 2023, we’ll ask you to indicate your desired level of involvement within your phase two application.

Structure

Online community/residency
(3 - 31 October)

In October, residents will meet as a group online twice each week, with further opportunities to meet in smaller gatherings. Sessions will be held together with project partners, guest mentors, and residents themselves will have space to propose activities. This stage of the residency will: 

  • give time for all participants to get to know each. 
  • review key points from the An Urgent Situation talk series, and take those ideas further.
  • learn about the Samong Haven Bali site and appraise its development model and principles.
  • script a dynamic, inspiring and practical manifesto that can be carried forward into the design development. 

Design Development
(31 October 2022 - 30 January 2023)

The aim of the design workshops is to evolve at least two proposals based in sustainable, low-impact construction principles, for building at Samong Haven Bali during phase three of An Urgent Situation, an on-site residency in Bali. The proposals need to embody the theory and values outlined during the online residency. The design workshops will foreground peer cooperation and feedback between two cross-disciplinary groups of eight participants. Project partners Don Lawrence and Eleena Jamil will each steer a group.

Potential residents 

Applications are welcomed from architects, artisans, craftspeople, artists, designers and all others whose interests and experience are relevant to the residency’s theme. Essential for selection is an interest in community, in place making, and in low impact construction.

16 places are available. Selection will be based on the relevance of the application and the applicant’s ability both to gain from, and contribute to, the activities of the online residency. PRAKSIS aims to provide an environment for development and professional growth: applications are welcome from practitioners of differing ages and experience levels.
