Girl Power!

Ever since it made its grand entrance on the popular culture stage thanks to the US punk band Bikini Kill, the term “Girl Power” has steadfastly held its position as a significant (political) catchphrase. “Girl Power” gained more prominence in pop culture after it was embraced by the British pop band the Spice Girls in the late 90’s, transforming it into a significant and appealing slogan. The meaning of ”Girl Power” is a self-reliant attitude among people in ambition, assertiveness, and individualism. In this art show, we wish to pay homage to the voices and the stories woven by women across generations. It is a tribute to the transformations, the triumphs, and the unity that can arise when women unapologetically embrace their individuality and their stories.

Call for videopoetry

NUDO, festival de poesía desatada opens call for V2 versos&visuals 2024, the videopoetry exhibition that is held in Barcelona as part of the festival's programme.

Since the birth of the festival, we have always been interested in how image and word marry, a union that has materialized in multiple ways for centuries. The great power of the word with the evocative force of the moving image create true works of art.

A Corpo Libero

“L'Intreccio Viola”, association based in Turin, promoting mental health, sexual well-being and the arts through cultural events and initiatives, opens a call for artists residing in Italy or abroad to the creation of a collective exhibition in spring 2024 entitled A Corpo Libero.

From pathologization to gender issues through collective perception, bodies are always public: from this reflection arises the need to investigate the practices of self-determination that allow us to reclaim our bodies and our images, in a context that encourage conformity, against the concepts of care and healing that are close to queer transfeminist movements in every part of the world.

The Banff Artist in Residence program is designed for visual artists to focus on their practice in a supportive learning environment. Over five weeks, participants are encouraged to self-direct their research and time, as well as cultivate new directions in their work. The experience of artists in residence is further supported through individual studio visits with guest faculty and dialogue amongst peers.

The program encourages experimentation and risk-taking via access to shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance.
