POLDRA seeks works that propose new interpretations of the sites and spaces as well as encourage interaction between the viewer and the sites themselves. Through this dynamic, the works of art aspire to initiate connections that exist beyond the primary act of looking.

We've been doing so for the past three years by exhibiting the works of Kiluanji Kia Henda (AO), Rui Sanches (PT), Miguel Palma (PT), Cristina Ataíde (PT), Neeraj Bhatia (CA), Pedro Pires (AO), Steven Barich (US), Elisa Balmaceda (CL), Kaitlin Ferguson (GB) & Natalia Bezerra (US), Liliana Velho (PT), Jazmin Charalambous (GB), e Signe Ferguson (US) & Thanasis Ilonomou (GR-CA).

In 2021 we're seeking to extend an open sky, public art circuit, established in the Mata do Fontelo, a historic park in Viseu, Portugal. With this purpose, we're opening a call looking for site-specific artwork proposals. This is primarily addressed to visual artists who work in the fields of installation, painting, sculpture and media art. Applications from artists groups are welcome. Submissions are free and they must be specifically conceived for Mata do Fontelo (a historic urban Woods setting). 

Deadline: 18th of April, 2021.

Sculpture X

Form Finding for the 21rst century

William Paterson University workshop and residency

June 3, 2021- June 17, 2021

 

THE WORKSHOP

Imagine being in a group of like-minded creatives working in proximity to create sculpture carved by robot but finished by your hand? We seek to bring together artists, sculptors, designers, architects, and curators to explore robot carving in wood. Working around other artists can inspire and motivate as you discover ideas in a speculative, constructive context.  It’s an opportunity to discover new ideas as well as work with new technologies. That's the spirit and tone that Sculpture X: Form Finding for the 21st Century seeks to provide. 

 

William Paterson University Center for New Art is now offering a 2 week workshop from June 3, 2021- June 17, 2021 for carving a sculpture (from a wooden block) by robot and then further working it by hand.
