Woman Made Gallery: Boundaries juried by Whitney LaMora

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our April-May 2021 group exhibition juried by Whitney LaMora. This exhibition will be held at the gallery and online. Submissions will request the submitter to select participation in (a) the hybrid presentation (at the gallery and online) or (b) the virtual exhibition only.

 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

As the world continues to grapple with an isolated reality at the conclusion of one full year of pandemic conditions, the parameters of how we live and move through the world have drastically changed. While many new physical boundaries have been defined for us, other boundaries were left to be defined. This exhibition considers the magnitude of this particular moment, as well as conceptual dimensions and negotiations of boundaries broadly, and as particularly experienced by womxn and non-binary individuals. We encourage intersectional approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, class, and disability.

Woman Made Gallery is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in investigating the following conceptual questions for "Boundaries":

  • What are the areas in womxn and non-binary lives in need of boundary definition? How does identity condition the ability to set boundaries?
  • How have physical, virtual, emotional boundaries affected womxn and non-binary folks? How do we protect or find our energy?
  • How do we make sense of work-life balance, within the parameters of our new reality and for those exclusively working from home?
  • What are the digital boundaries set within our physical boundaries at this time?
  • How have conversations and points of connection changed, now with the capabilities to turn off your camera, or mute a person while they speak?
  • How have the newly constructed boundaries disproportionately affected womxn and non-binary folks?

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. The juror is especially, though not exclusively, interested in artworks from the following mediums:

  • Video work/installation
  • Digital renderings
  • Digital art
  • Photography
  • Textile Work
  • Fiber Work
  • Fiber / textile / fabric / weaving based installations
  • Performance art*

*The ability to perform in the gallery space may be limited due to CDC and City of Chicago COVID-19 guidelines. In the event that a physical performance may not be possible, a video documentation of the performance will be exhibited.

 

ABOUT THE JUROR

Whitney LaMora (she/her) is a queer Chicago-based creative. Her artistic background spans from theatrical production to art curation, entrepreneurial leadership, goal-oriented mentorship, and beyond. She is a champion of interdisciplinary projects and emerging / DIY creators.

She lives in Logan Square, obsessively reads, and takes in plants. Whitney is the creator of multiple Chicago art entities like Locus and the Accountability Club.

PERSPEKTIV_A

Share

Country:

La Vienísima announces the first feminist photography contest PERSPEKTIV_A on the occasion of International Women's Day. An initiative that arises with the aim of giving visibility to women artists and photographers, promoting the achievement of a more just and egalitarian society, promoting feminist movements and stimulating the creativity of participating women. Why only Women? Because although at the international level we find a high number of active professional female photographers and it is a group with high education, training and specialization, there is an evident imbalance in visibility, as well as in access to the mechanisms of distribution, legitimation and commercialization of the artwork compared to male artists.

100 euros / 50 euros

Professional Jury Prize: 100 euros + Diplom

Public Jury Prize: 50 euros + Diplom

SUPERNATURAL WOMEN

Share

Type:

Eligibility:

The theme Supernatural Women opens up questions of culture, history, legend, politics, femininity and womanhood. Participants may decide to focus only on a tiny segment of the theme for their work. For example, they might focus on just one woman. Or, they might look at a group of supernatural women. They may opt not to focus on specific women, but on a female element of the supernatural that is widely known, or that could be invented by the artist.

The content of discussions during the residency will be determined by the work undertaken by participants. Some participants might plan to produce deeply conceptual work. For others the process will be more practical. Others will work on a mixture of both.

“(of a manifestation or event) attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.””

— Supernatural

The Igbo goddess Ala
The various manifestations of Eve
The women that make up the Hindu Trivedi
The Amazons
Mermaids and sirens 
Witches
Fairy godmothers
Mystics, clairvoyants and fortune tellers
A ‘supernatural beauty’
Supernatural women as a concept
The scope of gender

  • Some of the questions that may arise for those incorporating supernatural women into their art practice:
  • Where did the stories of these women originate?
  • Who created supernatural narratives for women, and what was their purpose in doing so?
  • How do supernatural women relate to real women, in the past, present and future?
  • What are supernatural women made from? What shape, material, texture, colour and scale do they have? How do they sound and smell?

Timetable

The timetable takes place between 11am and 7pm local to Barcelona (CET). Use the Timezone Converter to see times in your location. 

Welcome and introduction (1h on Sunday)
The six participants will introduce themselves, say where they are from, a little about their creative background and state their intention for the week, as well as how they intend to begin that day. Facilitator shares information about the program and the organisation

Plan and Progress (30mins to 1h daily)
Report on progress from the previous day and state a plan for the current day.

Presentations (45mins to 1h daily)
Participants will each give a ten-minute presentation followed by Q&A 

Debriefing (1h on Saturday)
Participants will be asked to share their thoughts surrounding the outcomes of the residency and future plans.  

Participation Requirements

/  Prepare and deliver a ten-minute presentation of their work to fellow residents.
/  Commit to attending all meetings.
/  Allocate the majority of the working day outside the meetings to creative practice. 
/  Actively take part in discussion of others work, seek ways to contribute ideas and offer support to fellow residents.
/  Be willing to listen to the ideas and support from fellow residents regarding their own work.
/  Contribute one ‘daily newsletter’ of inspirational content (text or visual) to be sent to residents (a template will be provided).
/ Abide by our community guidelines.
/ Be familiar with and able to use the apps Google Meet and Telegram. Attention to video calling set up is essential.

A virtual program allows those who cannot travel to take part. However, the residency is also a commitment, and shouldn’t be undertaken unless at least four-to-five hours per day can be set aside to attend meetings and move creative work forward. 

Residency fees are by donation. All donations are considered income and we pay tax on them. The reason we ask for donations, rather than charging fees, is because it means that we can attract a more diverse group of artists.

If every participant were to pay €100 we would cover our running costs. But we realise that this will not be possible for every artist and we encourage them to apply regardless.

Those living in countries with lower per-capita GDP, those who are unemployed or those affected by low-incomes should feel comfortable giving less. If the people that can afford to give more choose to do so they will help us continue this model of inclusion into the future.

We continue to work towards a funded model, but have so far struggled to find a resource that will fund a completely global project. If you know of one, please let us know!
