Eligibility:

Snehta (Athens in reverse)

Snehta’s mission is to actively strengthen the artistic production and revitalize the local scene by bridging Athens with international creatives that share a focused enthusiasm to research in the city. Moreover partnering artists, curators and projects undertaken by Snehta aim to creating new readings under which the city is perceived and experienced.

For the past two years Snehta has been making gradual stepts to establishing  two additional core activities – its physical / online shop and an educational program run by Athens based artists. Monies generated by those activities will fund a range of new opportunities that will be announced within the following year. Amongst those - Walking backwards is Snehta’s first funded exhibition opportunity open to emerging artists from Greece and other countries

Overview

“Walking Backwards”  was inspired by the Greek figure of the soothsayer Tiresias, appearing in Dante’s Divine Comedy. Soothsayers are fortune tellers, or people who claim to be able to predict the future. In Canto XX, Dante and Vergil encounter these souls, forced to walk with their heads for ever facing backwards.

The calls aim is to bring artists attention to past ideas and juxtapose those with our present condition. We are looking for emerging contemporary practitioners that will demonstrate a genuine interest in the social context of Athens and who can engage with it critically by challenging social norms and taboos. We are looking for creative practitioners who demonstrate elements of experimentation through their artistic practice. Applying artists should demonstrate an interest in the local community of Kypseli and maintain a gregarious approach to potential connections with local artists and organisations.The call is non medium specific.

CHEAP | 2021 call for artists

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

In 2021 CHEAP is issuing its 9th CALL for ARTISTS, targeting not only street artists but anyone involved in graphic design, photography, illustration and visual art more generally. The pieces applicants send in a digital format will be printed and pasted up on the CHEAP On Board circuit of bulletin boards in downtown Bologna.

For CHEAP, this open call has always represented a key element of its identity: it enables the hybridization of languages, breaks down geographical borders, launches a collective discussion, investigates contemporary issues from the bottom up and seeks to reassemble individual statements into a collective narrative.

***

Nothing lasts forever.
Which is fortunate, because it implies the potential for change.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow. Despite the fact that, as many have suggested, we just seem to be living the same day over and over, here.

It is in the nature of dogma to insinuate the idea of its own impulse toward infinity. It is in the nature of ideologies to treat the absence of alternatives as implicit. It is in the nature of religions to assert the impossibility of salvation outside of each one’s specific doctrine.

Nevertheless, existence is dialectical. It changes. Becomes. Discards. And overcomes.
In the exceptionality of pandemic-time, we have all wondered what has been taken from us and what is going to be different, or what opportunities this plague might involve: uncertainty and restlessness are the forces that have driven us toward fantastic futures set in unprecedented post-pandemic landscapes.

Fueled by this impulse, we have chosen POST in its Latin sense as the foundation for CHEAP‘s exploration throughout 2021 and this idea of overcoming will provide the launching pad for our public art projects in the coming months.
And this is how we set out today, starting with this Call for Artists. Our annual invitation, addressed to artists using contemporary visual language, to join us in contaminating public space: with signs and imagery, provocations and projects translated into posters. Beginning with this edition, the format has become bigger and color has joined black and white.

What we are asking of you is an imaginative step toward a possibility, however improbable, brimming with desires as well as fears, full of details and approximations both – in other words, an imaginative step toward the future.
Keeping in mind a before, starting from a point you recognize as now, you are invited to define an after. And the terms of that sequentiality are up to you.

We ask what awaits us beyond capitalism, after the next climate crisis, what happens after we turn 30, after we turn 90, after the downfall of patriarchy, after disease, after empire, after punk, after tomorrow.
We want to know how you imagine the end of democracy and what utopia may follow it, how you represent a community that has moved beyond gender and gender violence, how you envisage the posthuman landscape, the postcoital temperature, the features of a new posterity.

Show us the next symbols of liberation, how you would represent a society that has moved beyond racism. In what aesthetics will we recognize ourselves, what are post-traumatic perspectives, what is the new historical era you want to see take off after we wrest free of this one?

POST. A call for visions – on paper, on the street, in posters.

The selected pieces applicants send in a digital format will be printed and pasted up on the CHEAP On Board circuit of bulletin boards in downtown Bologna.

Seldom in history had one event been the defining moment for the majority of people on this planet. Out of the initial reactions of shock and disbelief emerged an overarching narrative that is now accepted as the general account of the past year, one of tragedy and heroism, heartbreaks and strength, schism and unity. 

However, to say that such narratives tell the whole story would run the risk of oversimplification and deprive us of a more nuanced response to what happened, which depends on a perhaps less definitive, more complex, and ultimately more enriching perspective. An artistic perspective. In this sense, the stories are yet to be completed, and we have much to do, to think, to feel, and to make sense of. The curators at Latitude Gallery invite fellow young artists to take this opportunity to reflect on recent history, to form a response to the questions that the past year had thrown at you, to explore different narratives other than the ones that dominated the news, and to find some meaning out of a year that has so far defied interpretation. 

LATITUDE Gallery New York is welcoming artists to present their works in both of our online platform and on-site gallery space.  Exhibition will be curated by our curator Jingru Li and Leo Yuan. This project aims to provide a cross-dimensions platform for contemporary artists from around the globe to present their works and receive extensive international exposure during Covid or Post-Covid era.

All mediums are welcomed. 

 

Deadline: 02/14/2021
