Seeking proposals for art-climate-science collaborations

Share

Eligibility:

Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organization is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following — artist, scientist and observer — who will work together on a new project to test our Collaboration Blueprint. 

Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an “observer” role — the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.

Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:

  • Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements,
  • Be documented as they move through their process and
  • Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.

The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.

Have questions? Tune in for our informational webinar on March 8th!

Open Call for Art: Agency

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Agency: A virtual art show reflecting the themes of global citizenship

Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in May 1-30, 2021  on this website and be highlighted during our May 15-16  online conference, called “Greetings, Earthlings”

“Agency” can be defined as the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power. How can artists act as agents to address the real and imagined boundaries of our planet in relation to the climate crisis? What responsibility do we have as visual thinkers to generate momentum for change? How can art elevate a discussion about borders, civic responsibility, kindness, humanitarianism, justice, and stewardship in the Anthropocene? Works from all media will be considered including, but not limited to, photography, video, sculpture, installation, multimedia works, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Submission FREE: There are no fees to submit your work

Eligibility: Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent

Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show

Background Brief: 
Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability,  is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.

Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.

Juror/Curator: 
Margaret LeJeune is an image-maker, curator, and educator from Rochester, New York (USA). Working predominantly with photographic-based mediums, LeJeune explores our precarious relationship to the natural world. Her work has been widely exhibited at institutions around the world including The Griffin Museum of Photography (USA), The Center for Fine Art Photography (USA), ARC Gallery (USA), Circe Gallery Cape Town (South Africa), Science Cabin (South Korea), and Umbrella Arts (USA). LeJeune has been invited to create work at several residency programs which foster collaboration between the arts and sciences including the Global Nomadic Art Project – The Ephemeral River (Dartington, UK), University of Notre Dame Research Center (USA), and University of Wisconsin – Madison Trout Lake Research Station (USA).  She has been awarded a Puffin Fellowship, The Sally A. Williams Artist Grant, and a Bradley University Research Excellence ‘New Directions’ Grant for her interdisciplinary project Growing Light.  Her work was recently published in Culture, Community, and Climate: Conversations and Emergent Praxis from art.earth press. LeJeune currently serves as Associate Professor of Photography at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.

Collide is an annual competition that invites artists over 18 years old and of any nationality to apply with a proposal for a research-led residency in both locations: at CERN, Geneva, and at various laboratories and research centres in Barcelona, while based at the Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production.

Collide invites entries from artists who are interested in interacting with the extraordinary CERN scientific community. The programme is targeted at artists with a distinct interest in a transdisciplinary approach, a strong motivation for scientific thinking and an interest in fundamental science. The focuses of the residencies is to invite artists into the Laboratory to think, discuss, be informed and inspired, and comprehend the challenges of fundamental research and the big questions that inform physics today. Through this process, the artists develop high-quality innovative engagements with CERN’s research and community. Direct interactions with scientists are fundamental to this process.

 

Prizes Details: 

Artists interested in applying to Collide are invited to submit a project proposal that combines research and production. The scope of this proposal will include a research period at CERN and a second developmental phase in Barcelona, where the artists will have the opportunity to expand their research and test its applications through Barcelona’s scientific and cultural network, as well as to engage with a wide range of communities.

The Collide Call for Entries encourages the participation of artists interested in the ideas described above, who comply with any of the following criteria:

 

Artists interested in the cultural significance of fundamental research and scientific knowledge.                            

Artists interested in the processes of fundamental science and particle physics who are able to extrapolate this understanding into art projects of artistic excellence.

Artists pushing the traditional forms of collaboration between the artistic and scientific fields and asking innovative and provocative questions in this respect.

Artists interested in the community-driven Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production and in its interaction with the urban area and its social fabric.

The award includes the following support and conditions:

15 000 Swiss Francs as a research and artistic production award.

0.1% exhibition at NAVEL

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

As part of the upcoming program 0.1% organized by Dr.Yewande Pearse, NAVEL is looking for artworks, texts, as well as scientific projects that demystify how genomics inform identity. We are looking for artworks, ranging from sculpture and 2D work to video, film, text, sound, performance, AR/VR, immersive and/or participatory projects, that address the sociopolitical and/or psychological implications of readily available genetic information.

Our DNA – the script of our lives – is 99.9% the same across the human species. But differences in the remaining 0.1% hold important clues to who we are as individuals – a reality that begat the “quantified self” movement. The movement, also known as lifelogging, describes the trend towards using technology to acquire data on aspects of a person’s daily life, with the goal of improving physical, mental, and/or emotional performance.

Genetic information acquired by consumer testing companies like 23andMe can illuminate inner resources and limitations, functioning as a kind of oracle into the secrets of our bodies, identities and individualities. Still, many questions remain unanswered in regards to the impact of such inquiry on notions of the self and the socio-political.

0.1% explores what it means to uncover the genetic roots of who we are and who we could be. This week-long program demystifies how genomics inform identity, with an exhibition of works selected through an open call, the release of a Massive x NAVEL collaborative zine, an installation by neuroscientist and philosopher Dan Lloyd, discussions of scientific papers, and talks by influential figures whose work grows in the delta where hard science meets the arts.
