Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel to. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks). Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. A conglomeration lies in the capital city, Kathmandu, where cultures are blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal in the 18th Century. A prominent factor in Nepali’s everyday life is religion. Adding color to the lives of Nepalese are festivals the year round which they celebrate with much pomp and joy. Food plays an important role in the celebration of these festivals. Capital is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages.

VARTA1 by Yuriy Hrytsyna, 2015 (English Subtitles), 63 Min. An attempt to reconstruct the atmosphere and the reactions at the end of the Euromaidan, when activists in Lviv started to perform law enforcement functions.

The film shows a bizarre world whose laws are quite different from what we are used to. The behaviour is different, the relationships unfold differently and the humour takes on different notes. The heroes wake up and fall asleep, rejoice and cry, always feeling that the recording may end at any moment.

We want to hear what artists are concerned with in the world today, and how your artistic response is a call to arms, a healing process, or a road map to a different, better future.

That means we are looking for robust artistic processes and accessible presentations that are centred on responding to gaps in communities, collaborative, and tackling current issues of the day. We are looking for contemporary, cutting edge and socially engaged works that can be presented as live or digital performances and participatory events. We welcome proposals that use alternative models of presentations to include the disabled and immunocompromised, to encourage environmental sustainability, and/or to reduce air travel.

Exhibition 1 April – 20 May, 2022; Application deadline 15 February, 2022 In 2022, Group Global 3000 is starting the exhibition Transformation. We are calling for applications from artists in our international call. This is the first part of a vision in our back-to-back exhibitions Transformation and The Good Life. The euphoria of technological progress is over. We can see that unlimited growth does not fit to a limited earth. We are already experiencing the first answers from the natural world. The dream of endless growth is coming to an end and at best leads to transformation. By transformation, we mean the process that leads globally to a good life for people and sustainable use of natural resources. We see social and cultural change as feasible, because we have the economic, technical, and scientific prerequisites. Yet this life is difficult to imagine for most people. Convention stands in the way of transformation. We want to show the picture of the good life in the future. A framework has been sketched out by economists and natural scientists: Sufficiency reduces production and consumption, efficiency uses material and energy more productively, and consistency includes nature-friendly material cycles, recycling and waste avoidance.

The project consists of installations located in three rooms in the building of the Kyiv Institute of Automation. The project was based on the text generated by the algorithm from the explanations to the works of the Future Generation Art Prize (PinchukArtCentre) in Kyiv. The explications were downloaded to the InferKit computer program. (This text generation tool takes the text you provide and generates what you think will be next using a state-of-the-art neural network. It can be configured and create text of any length on virtually any topic). The result proposed by the program is difficult to distinguish with the naked eye from the usual texts-concepts that have to be read at exhibitions of contemporary art. The Future Generation Art Prize was chosen as the most appropriate generalized model, as it presents the ideas of artists from many countries around the world. The coincidence with the word “generation”, which translates from English as “generation” and as “generation”, in this context not only emphasizes the limitations of language tools, but also refers to the prospect of generating ideas with artificial intelligence and competing with people in the arts. in future. Each of the participants worked on the organization of space […]

Can my mental health be mapped? Where are the spaces for self-discovery? How deep does this grace go? The exhibition asks viewers to untether their expectations and fall into the turbulence of contemporary lived experience. STAY SILENT DRIFT DEEP is the culmination of a 6 month artist residency at The SPAO Centre, where each artist worked on personal passion projects. The artists negotiated between the challenges of ongoing pandemic restrictions, and staying true to their artistic pursuits. The result is a timely and thoughtful experience that pursues authenticity despite external pressures. Hours of operation The Gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday from 12PM to 5PM. Holiday exceptions apply. The gallery is free and open to the public, as well as wheelchair accessible. For more information, contact [email protected] The SPAO Centre is home to the Ottawa region’s only independent and critical gallery space dedicated to lens-based art.

This exhibition suggests a subjective cutting through time and space of the work of three Argentine artists, whose paths intersect at the city of Berlin. Here they find and observe each other, they study their ways,techniques and their relationship. As a result they offer us a universe of reinterpretations. Their work accounts for the forces of the collective, for the importance of one Other, who would help us rediscover and thus resignify ourselves. Always. Because there are no isolated points in space, but an infinite network of relationships. And from each encounter results a possibility of new hybrids that refuse to be crystalized in a permanent form. This dialogue is ephemeral. It […]

Regart, centre d’artistes en art actuel, présente Télé-Chevreuil, une œuvre numérique de Boris Dumesnil-Poulin. L’œuvre évolutive sera logée sur le site de Regart pour un an à partir de la mise en ligne le 15 octobre, où le public pourra observer les développements de Télé-Chevreuil. Une diffusion en galerie aura lieu du 5 novembre au 3 décembre. Télé-Chevreuil présentera une série de vidéos qui mettent en scène des images animées, ralenties ou immobiles. Les séquences qui se retrouvent dans le projet sont puisées à partir d’une banque d’images tirées de voyages et de tournages en nature. Un programme numérique contrôlera et génèrera un flot d’images en modifiant la vitesse et en créant des compositions aléatoires. Petites téléportations dans la vie secrète de plantes, de rivières et de montagnes, Télé-Chevreuil s’inscrit dans une approche contemplative de l’image télévisuelle, tournée vers la durée, la décroissance, vers une immersion méditative du regard. L’aspect cyclique du projet est incarné par des images, des personnages ou des thèmes récurrents. «Par la répétition, de petits récits sont brodés en filigrane dans la durée». De nouvelles captations seront produites et intégrées à la banque de données qui nourrit la diffusion annuelle en continu, «assurant que la diffusion Web se renouvèle et génère de nouvelles possibilités pour le public.» Télé-Chevreuil s’inspire […]

We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival. For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful? We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that […]

For Full Details and To Apply: https://vestigegallery.com/index.php/clockwork/ Like Clockwork seeks to showcase works of art that address the nature of time. From birth, our daily routines, anxieties on aging, death, rebirth, to creation and destruction, the forms of time give shape to human experience. Traditional thought, from China to ancient Greece, embodies time not only in gods and goddesses but also in the various devices which measure and grasp it. Time as a flux is apparent in the flow of grains in an hourglass; time as eternal return, in the circling aeons of the Indian and Maya calendars or the tail-eating serpent Ouroboros; time as a universal pattern of synchronous events, in the I-Ching or the astrologers’ intricate figure-work. The paradoxes inherent in these parallel ways of conceiving time reveal the mysterious Coincidence of Opposites which underlies the cosmos. It’s as the old adage says.. all “like clockwork”… We are accepting works from emerging, mid-career, and/or professional artists. Work should somehow relate to the theme of the show. “Like Clockwork” In-Person opening reception party will be held Saturday, January 8th, 2022 at 6 PM. ELIGIBILITY “Like Clockwork” is open to any artists over age 18, within the United States and Canada. […]

In her sculptural work Antonia Breme deals with display elements in the context of store window displays. She examines the artistic practice of designing window displays as an alternative means of income and, in this context, addresses the question of the so-called “money job“, that many artists perform in addition to their artistic work. In this way, she reflects on her own position in the tension between artistic autonomy and economic necessity. The exhibited sculptures and objects were originally designed for a window display of the fashion label Weather Underground to present its biodegradable rain capes. In the context of the exhibition V (Virtus), they obtain independence and at the same time refer to their original function. The installative setting makes Antonia Breme’s artistic process visible as well as her handling of different materials and surfaces. At the same time, the work on display remains flexible and expandable and exists in this form only for the duration of the exhibition. www.antoniabreme.com HilbertRaum Reuterstraße 31 12047 Berlin 22.10.-31.10.2021 Soft Opening 22.10.2021, 6-10 pm Opening hours: Opening Fridays 6-10 pm Other Fridays 4-7 pm Saturday + Sunday 2-7 pm Curated by: Hannah van Ginkel

October 14th – November 5th 2021, Tangent Projects gallery. Opening reception Thursday October 14th, 5 – 8:30pm. The “map of books” that we have read, come from, at most, ten countries in the world. Almost all of these books are concentrated in the US, Canada, and some parts of Europe. These books, and countries, are full of institutions, fraternities of science and knowledge, and Nobel laureates. These spaces are inhabited by white cis-gender men whose names are constantly repeated which, in turn, builds a litany of word power, speech power, and publishing power. These men tend to write a lot, but its difficult to imagine them cooking, cleaning, or caring. These White men who write, think, define and translate, ultimately dictate how the world ‘is’. Lucia Egañas Rojas has a degree in art and has completed a Diploma in Aesthetics and Contemporary Thought, a Master in Creative Documentary and a PHD in Audiovisual Communication. As an artist, she works on collaborative projects, problematising the construction of social imaginary and sources of knowledge. Her projects have been exhibited in many different spaces, museums and institutions. Her creative practices overflow, permeating many different territories such as technology, pedagogy, writing and sexuality. In […]

The Program will be directed by writers Ginger Teppner and Andrew Helton. Fall 2021 | October 11 – November 20 (tbd) 2021 | Virtual Program The Earth Of: Ruptures and Reckonings is a collective virtual space of inquiry. Through writing and discourse we investigate how to manifest and inhabit the fractures that pervade our lives, allowing for the creative space to grow organically through digressions, tangents, musings, and synchronistic linkages. What does it mean when humanity crosses a threshold of such significance it manifests as a rupture, when the world is on the cusp? The brain wants to organize, filter, and separate out. Yet, beyond the confusion perpetrated by language that fails to adequately define, are spaces. We find meaning when we implicitly inhabit these spaces—gestures that guide the cracks to spread toward shattering. These moments of rupture burst forth from gesture into reckoning, exposing us to what is real and true and essential. https://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-3

David Gersten & Homa Shojaie October 9th – November 20th, 2021 | Virtual Program Arts Letters & Numbers is pleased to announce “SunShip: Thesis II at Arts Letters & Numbers”, a six-week immersive virtual studio program led by David Gersten and Homa Shojaie. The Studio program is being held as part of “SunShip: The Arc That Makes The Flood Possible,” Arts Letters & Numbers’ exhibition in the CITYX Venice Italian Virtual Pavilion of the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale. SunShip: The Arc That Makes the Flood Possible Tens of centuries ago, trees of enormous scale were cut, trimmed, skinned of their bark, and bound together using a particularly robust fibrous rope for the construction of rafts that anticipated the crossing of the great raging seas. Although strong, this rope was not often used near the sea; salt broke down its fiber, sea salt ate away its strength. The trees were bound in such a way that the rolling motion of the sea dug the rope into the soft wood of the trees; the particular knot and binding allowed the push and pull of the sea to work the rope into deep grooves in the wood. In time, as the wood swelled […]
DIGITAL DIVIDE II Die Atomisierung der Welt NICK FUDGE | ANDREAS LAU | ENDA O´DONOGHUE | RÖMER + RÖMER | SANDRA SCHLIPKOETER 08.10-17.10.2021 SOFT OPENING 08.10.2021, 18 – 22 UHR SOFT FINISSAGE 17.10.2021, UM 15 UHR EINGELADEN VON SANDRA SCHLIPKOETER Die Ausstellung DIGITAL DIVIDE, die Atomisierung der Welt, ist die zweite gemeinsame Ausstellung vonAndreas Lau, Römer + Römer und Nick Fudge. Im Hilbertraum erweitern Sie die gezeigten Künstler mit Arbeiten von Enda o`Donoghue und Sandra Schlipkoeter. Alle Positionen gehen der Frage nach, wie Malerei heutzutage noch zeitgemäß funktionieren kann. Gibt es noch einen Platz für das analoge Medium, für die Malerei? Die Bejahung dieser Frage fällt leicht, wenn man das malerische Werk dieser Künstler betrachtet. Die Fotografie mit deren Folgemedien Film und Fernsehen, bis hin zu Computerbildschirmen und Smartphone-Displays beherrschen heute unsere visuelle Kultur. Das sich die Malerei dennoch als starkes künstlerisches Medium behaupten konnte, liegt nicht zuletzt an genau dieser kreativen Auseinandersetzung und Abarbeitung mit der neuen Technik. Durch Codierung von Motiven, Wiederholung serieller Zeichen, Zerlegung in Pixel oder der Nutzung digitaler Möglichkeiten ergeben sich vollig neue optische Möglichkeiten. Mit der Aneignung dieser optischer Einflüsse und Reize entstehen völlig neue, eigenständige Malereien. Das braucht Zeit uns Disziplin. […]

We are pleased to announce the soft opening of our upcoming exhibition at DAS ESSZIMMER. We present a duo exhibition by Dutch artists Jolijn van den Heuvel and Bas de Weerd. For the last three weeks, both artists have been working in an open studio at KAISERPASSAGE. Their works will now be exhibited in the ESSZIMMER. The soft opening is going to be in presence of the artists and goes from 5 to 9pm.
We are very pleased to announce the start of our exhibition project with the two Dutch artists Jolijn van den Heuvel and Bas de Weerd, which is a continuation of our cooperation with SEA Foundation in Tilburg/NL. Come and talk with the artists in their temporary studio in the Kaiserpassage and enjoy an edible and drinkable pretaste of sprinkle never-in-a-rush essence, in collaboration with Marcia Spinelli (Cologne/DE). To kick off the exhibition project, the two artists, van den Heuvel and de Weerd, will move into a vacant store in the Kaiserpassage in the center of Bonn for 2.5 weeks. This store will mutate into a laboratory, a visible workshop and will be the starting point for their exploration tours into the urban space of Bonn. Here, direct contacts with citizens can arise en passant. – Art production is made tangible and demystified; here it is in direct dialogue with the copy store, the optician or the children’s shoe store, in other words, it is in the midst of life. – This has been a central concern of the exhibition space DAS ESSZIMMER since its founding. During this time, the two artists develop/produce what will later be present in their exhibition […]
Max Sandred & Örjan Sandred Sonic Trails is an immersive multimedia polyphony, layering sights, sounds, echoes and rhythms of a city in lockdown. Though seemingly devoid of people, this world is not without pulse. This immersive installation awakens an ambient social imaginary within the persistent sensorium of music and architecture. Lockdown live streams for 101 hours from September 7, 12:00 PM to September 11, 5:00 PM EDT. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sonic-trails-tickets-168112156987?aff=ebdsoporgprofile What is the pulse of a city when citizens go silent? What are the scenes of a city when society recedes? What qualities and processes remain when everyday activities are abandoned? As the city enters a state of “Lockdown,” the urban environment loses its most distinctive element: human presence. Nonetheless, it would be a mistake to consider the city abandoned. As human activity withdraws, other processes and activities come into focus. Cars pass through empty streets, trees sway in deserted parks, birds roam uninhabited spaces. In Sonic Trails: Lockdown, visitors are immersed in various events of a lockdown city occurring regardless of their presence. Using multiple audio-visual samples of these urban phenomena, the installation creates a new inhabitable place using layered projections and four loudspeakers. Artificial intelligence algorithms determine the composition of this […]
Forats is a videoperformnace piece resulting from a process of research work, carried out for a year by five artists. From a proposal to stage, each artist recreates the piece. The music chosen accompanies each’s vivence, allowing us to go into the individual experiences, which are included in group choreography. The audio consists of five different sounds that are part of a group choreography, and at the same time correspond to each individual experience. Les Performers is an artist group; Victoria Garcia Masdeu, Marga Rotger Llompart, Letitia María Muñoz, Olga Manzanaro Rodrigo, and Marta Font Genovart. This video shows a coast scene, where five silhouettes can be seen in front of the sea: people dressed in black with five white sticks, drawing the line of a path over the sand. Each player makes their own line, path, drawing with the stick or pinning holes, hence the name of the piece. They will accompany the video five headphones with different sounds, which in some way allow a dive into the individual of each of the participants. The piece will be presented to the framework of the Sineu Ciclop Performing Arts Festival and projected in loop for all the time of the […]

“Pequeñas Extrañezas de Cuentos Sin Contar” (ENG – Little Oddities of Untold Stories) is an installation work that seeks – through the use of materials such as steel, concrete and ceramics – to place the viewer in dialogue with the subjective and metaphorical possibilities of the elements arranged within the exhibition space. The work explores the limits of the room and conditions the visitor’s journey, generating spaces for stillness and thought that complement the very nature of the work. Felipe García Salazar is a visual artist and cultural manager. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York, with a Master in Production and Artistic Research from the University of Barcelona. His work explores, in an autobiographical way, his relationship with time, history and his own identity. Through installation work Felipe seeks to create spaces for thought and dialogue with the viewer, and invites us to reflect on the contemporary status quo and what we understand as reality.
On the historical reality and artistic representation of Lynchings Ken Gonzales-Day & Lawrence Weschler “Most of all, beware, even in thought, of assuming the sterile attitude of the spectator, for life is not a spectacle, a sea of grief is not a proscenium, and a man who wails is not a dancing bear.” –Aime Cesare Over the past several decades, Los Angeles based photographer Ken Gonzales-Day has been engaged in one of the most trenchant and consequential explorations both of the historical reality of lynching and of the aesthetic and ethical complications involved in blithe latter day cultural appropriations of incidents which from the very start had been cast as prurient spectacles. Several years of archival research culminated, in 2006, with his publication of Lynching in the West (1850-1935), which revealed the shocking and long-occluded extent of extralegal executions not only of blacks but of Latinos and others as well, particularly in California. This research in turn informed several subsequent projects, including one in which he compiled often hand-tinted vintage postcards celebrating local lynchings and then proceeded to honor the victims by airbrushing them out of the image entirely, inviting viewers to focus instead on the obscenely gawking spectators, and […]
An Architectonic Technological Sublimity Michael Benson and James Green In the last few decades, US Space Agency NASA has constructed an astonishingly vast, kinetic, architectonic structure, one spanning the entire Solar System. This ever-evolving edifice comprises recognizably architectural forms: the buildings of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California; NASA HQ in Washington and various mission control centers; a global network of giant dish antennae; and rocket assembly, testing and launching facilities. But these would be meaningless without another principal component: the intricate spacecraft it has sent vaulting to all the major worlds of our planetary system, and the football-field sized International Space Station. Some of these extraordinarily advanced interplanetary robots are no bigger than a grand piano, and the largest is a bit smaller than a city bus. A cat’s-cradle webwork of signals connects them to Earth, its chains of zeroes and ones slinging across the void and returning images and data. Together this system—conceptual structure and carefully designed complex of inquisitive, communicative, propulsive, semi-autonomous technologies, with brick-and-mortar terrestrial elements and titanium-and-radionuclide spacefaring ones, with organic human parts and emerging AI control systems, all dedicated to expanding the frontier between what we know and what we don’t—constitutes perhaps the single […]
Exist, Resist, Repeat Ahmet Talha Gürol El3o Gil Moualem Doron Marouane Joubba Tilawin Project Yazan Aboushi Venetia Menzies Exhibtion duration 09.09.-19.9.2021 Soft Opening Thursday 09.09.2021, 18 – 22 Uhr curated by Toufik Douib This exhibition was imagined as a visual diary that pays tribute to some of the artists, initiatives or collaborations I have worked or connected with since the ‘Covid Era’. While each of the selected photo/ digital work highlights crucial moments that inspired or affected me, both on a personal level and as a curator, this collective show reflects on the act of creative resistance that many art practitioners addressed to tackle the current global issue. Ultimately ‘Exist, Resist, Repeat’ aspires to bring a nuanced vision to the quest for art in resistance, celebrated through this first in-person exhibition made possible in 2 years!

We say goodbye to our solo exhibition “to the other side” by Jonas Hohnke (Wuppertal/GER). Take your chance to experience it (again). In his solo show “to the other side”, Jonas Hohnke poetically connects the exhibition venue in Bonn with a location in Castlemaine/Victoria/AUS. Both places are marked by a cloud flag. The connection is created virtually, on the surface of a monitor, where both flags can be seen, as well as in our imagination. Discover even more exciting connections on our last exhibition day. Jonas Hohnke (Wuppertal/GER) concentrates in his work of the everyday and the supposedly inconspicuous. He also likes to be seduced by architectural conditions, their banality and even their invisibility. In the resulting works, both the work and its surroundings sometimes merge together, letting the unrecognisability and visibility only gradually appear in the course of perception. Thanks to the artist Michael Graeve, who made the flag installation on an artist studio in Castelmaine/Victoria/AUS possible.
The SPAO Centre Gallery is thrilled to present Intimate Textures of the Digital World featuring the work of Gatineau-based artist AM Dumouchel, Montreal-based artist Gilles Tarabiscuité and Vancouver-based Haida artist Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’brien). The artists in this exhibition negotiate between digital and physical spaces, continually asking viewers to orient themselves between physicality and abstraction. The artworks capture a tactile and sensory subject matter, despite the mediation of the lens in two-dimensions. Viewers are encouraged to explore intimate conversations of metamorphosis, belonging and manual labour while also discovering their place between virtuality and reality.
On the occasion of our current exhibition “to the other side” by Jonas Hohnke (Wuppertal/GER), presented by DAS ESSZIMMER, we’re holding an Artist Talk on 02 September 2021, 7pm, in our art gallery at Mechenstraße 25/BONN. Artist Jonas Hohnke will give us exciting exclusive insights into his artistic work in conversation with artist friend Till-Martin Koester (Wuppertal/GER), who both know each other from their time together at the art academy in Münster (GER). Jonas Hohnke (Wuppertal/GER) concentrates in his work of the everyday and the supposedly inconspicuous.

Bob Garfield & Lawrence Weschler Someday, decades and decades hence, following some sort of terrible ecological collapse, all mankind has been reduced to living underground, in hexagonal rooms “like the cells of a bee” with no apertures and throbbing ventilation, each cell containing a single individual, though everyone is connected to everyone else by way of a vast hive of intermeshed video screens. Zoom, as it were, avant la lettre. For this is how the great E. M. Forster’s visionary 1909 story “The Machine Stops” begins, with a son calling out to videoconference with his mother on the other side of the globe, to chat and to complain, “The Machine is much, but it is not everything. I see something like you in this plate, but I do not see you. I hear something like you through this telephone, but I do not hear you.” https://www.eventbrite.com/e/weschler-bob-garfield-consider-e-m-forsters-story-the-machine-stops-tickets-167490086357
Primal Disposition seeks to showcase works of art that are raw, emotive, primitive, earthen, sexual, sensory, confrontational, instinctual. We are also looking for work that is primal in the materials used: foundational, basic, primary colors, elemental, and/or textured.
Live conversation between Lawrence Weschler and Rhoda Rosen Rhoda Rosen with members of Chicago’s Red Line Service community discuss Grappling with and engaging the cultural implications of homelessness In the brutal winter of 2013, curator Rhoda Rosen and artist Billy McGuiness, living at opposite ends of the 26-mile-long north-south Red Line of Chicago’s metro service, launched a practice of preparing home cooked meals every Saturday night and going out to the blustery platforms at one end of the line or the other to share them (with proper tablecloths, plates and silverware) with some of the people experiencing homelessness who had taken to living out their nights on the metro trains and were being forced to disembark between rides. From that initial action grew a widening community and the insight that on top of being houseless, people experiencing homelessness were living out a sort of exile from the city’s vital cultural life. The community themselves set out to remedy that situation, systematically challenging Chicago’s cultural institutions to make room and provision for them. In addition, several of the community members turned out to be artists, poets and other sorts of cultural workers, or else began seeing such possibilities in themselves, and […]
This two-part experimental workshop will examine the poetics of Line and Stitch and the ways in which drawing may be used in our everyday practices. We will explore the relationship between drawing and the architecture of the everyday: from the ways a line may be employed as a divider that separates the self from (an)other; to drawing as a form of embodied meaning-making and storytelling across time and space. Reflecting on the inner geography of the pandemic, unpacking placeness and memory through observation of texture and surface, tracing, mark making, frottage, collage, decollage, we will look at the ways the line can become a form of stitching or mending and other kinds of meaning making. We will also examine ways of recording and translating our body, our pulse, breath, blood pressure, gestures and movements in our surroundings as a kind of translation project. Participants are encouraged to bring to the workshop a few images or objects from one’s past and present everyday surrounding. http://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/sunship-thesis-3
Concert of the group “Ambrozia” in the garden of the Kyiv Institute of Automation as part of the “day of open studios”. Ambrozia is an indie-electronic band created by Igor Kanivets and Margarita Sherstyuk in 2018, transformed into a multimedia art project. Their style is called “romantic electronics”. The food of the gods – “ragweed” – in Greek mythology gave the Olympic gods eternal youth and immortality. The weed genus, which is widespread in a large area of Ukraine, has the same name. All this is symbolic of our “wild” music, which appeared suddenly, in conditions not adapted to this kind of activity, but like the “food of the gods”, gave us a new breath – new creative energy and inspiration” – Igor Kanivets and Margarita Sherstyuk.

Open Call „Endless Summer“ Exhibition 15.10. -10.12.2021 The permanent high over Europe creates vacation joy at home and crop failures due to drought. Will the sensual desire for paradise be fulfilled? One enjoys lots of sun, always being outside and vacation at home. A hedonistic dream. However, the climate crisis is felt ambivalently. “Higher fuel prices are felt immediately in the wallet, but climate change comes insidiously. “Heat deaths, devastation from heavy rains in 2021, fires worldwide from drought. In Canada, people are afraid of summer because of fires. Eternal Well (C) Tom Albrecht Continuing on without personal and political change is becoming more and more difficult.

Dear friends, In the midst of a global scenario that is still looking for balance, we are filled with enthusiasm for the possibility of releasing this new Open Call. At AADK Spain, we continue working to facilitate spaces for creation and bring our resources closer to those who need time for reflection and experimentation within their artistic practice. Today, our doors remain open, and we feel strangely and strongly equipped with the experience gained during these odd times. We believe that all we have experienced during the periods of confinement and social distancing has deeply impacted our idea of what is essential and what is relevant. Without a doubt, these times have also affected our sensory perception: in a matter of a few months, we became aware of the relevance of some of our most forgotten senses. The loss of smell became an indicator of our state of health, the need for bodily contact reminded us about the fragility of our emotional ties. Touching is essential to our lives — it is estimated that within a day we touch around 150 objects and surfaces. Our contact with other human bodies is significantly less frequent than that, but nevertheless essential for […]

Armin Rohr is a painter and draughtsman. For his work he uses different, traditional media such as paper or canvas. In cycles, he repeatedly changes his pictorial language by switching from abstraction to figurative or combining both forms. His best-known works are characterised above all by a combination of extensive wall installations consisting of murals, paintings and drawings, autonomous oil paintings and monotypes. In the PASSAGE art project in the Kaiserpassage in Bonn, we are showing three of his large abstract works on canvas that are similar to his murals. In the individual works, round, organic forms alternate with graphic structures. The interplay of amorphous, abstract bodies, surfaces, dots and lines creates the illusion of spatiality. They form their own effective space of figures and structures. In the mostly colour-intensive arrangements, Armin Rohr combines organically proliferating forms, remnants and ciphers of figurativeness and abstract colour surfaces in his abstract phase to create an associative but alien cosmos.

Artists are encouraged to submit daring cinematic works in which the body relates to technology, ecology and new socio-political discourses. BIDFF also addresses recent video-art formats and animations that question the relation between solid artistic content and the fast process of digitization.

EYES ONLY is pleased to present: Joseph Constable, Associate Curator at the Serpentine Galleries in London and Mark Corfield-Moore, born 1988 in Bangkok, lives and works in London. In Mark´s painting practice, the act of weaving on a loom becomes a meditation on the idiosyncrasies of past events and experiences. Memories, be they historical or personal, are re-performed through a hybrid process incorporating painting and ikat, in which the artist paints images with dye directly onto strands of loose cotton threads before they are woven permanent. This ikat technique was vicariously adopted by Corfield-Moore from his maternal grandmother, who had a similar practice many years ago in North East Thailand. Although the artist never met his relative, this biographical discovery enabled him to process and rediscover his heritage by incorporating weaving into his practice. The works presented in the exhibition draw upon a series of intimate thought patterns that trace Corfield-Moore’s experience as part of the Thai-British diaspora. Phrases such ‘auto gate’ suggest certain architectural structures and psychological spaces, which are then combined with each woven image to engender ambiguous and transitory associations: an automatic gate that acts as a protective threshold. Rendered with what the artist describes as a […]

The School of Commons is calling for contributions for an experimental print publication sharing experiences of burnout.
BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS is an on-going collective enunciation initiated in Autumn 2019 which exhibition will be hosted in two mirroring spaces: ERGO Collective and Space 52, Athens. This collective practice deals with the historical trope of the individualisation of an author and architectonic forms of authorship engaging in creating modes of practice that reverse this traditional status. To develop into anonymity of a murmur, BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS attempts to re-codes and reverses these architectonic forms of authorship, where power play, proliferation of meaning and the ideological figure of a ‘present author’ shapeshift into nameless entities. This suggested new state of equilibrium, no longer refers to a singular subject but is rather designated to the subject’s cumulative space of vocation. B.W as a host, is a hybridised figure, scripted under the form of an inhabited dwelling where authorship is delegated into chains of commands and mechanical processes. Setting forward the blueprint of a show, B.W as a narrator – now evacuated by the author – is hosted throughout a constellation of ready-mades, performance, a radio station, an internet portal and photographic slides. It is no longer a manipulation of the real but a simulated situation, a potential/hypothetical scenario. Dealing with the phantom of […]
Hot Summer City: Street Photography Exhibition will be held in the cultural heart of Pittsburgh, PA: Lawrenceville. Home to celebrated artists, most notably Andy Warhol, the former steel making capital is now referred to as “The Paris of Appalachia” due to its deep connections to the arts and world-class museums. Vestige Concept Gallery is seeking street photography that captures the essence of urban life in the summertime. Summer is an intense and multifaceted season that brings joy, freedom, and social opportunities. When we think of representing the season through photography we envision intense warmth, deep shadows, and/or depictions of late nights, summer fun, and being outdoors. We are also interested in work that captures the dark side of summer: oppressive heat; urban blight; and the struggle to keep cool, hustle, and survive. The show will be Special Guest Curated by Rafael Fuchs. About the Curator: Rafael Fuchs is a Brooklyn-based artist, photographer, director, curator and producer. He has earned his place as one of the most important photographers of his generation. A recipient of many awards, Rafael has captured portraits and images of some of the most influential figures of the past 30 years. His images have fronted magazine covers, and have become part of distinctive private collections and […]

The Medialab Prado cultural center joins MMMAD Festival with a new edition of ‘Programa la Plaza’, an open call that invites the entire digital art community to submit their proposals to exhibit visual ‘sketches’, programmed for the digital façade of Medialab Prado. With the collaboration of Creative Coding Madrid. Theme: Glitches and Alterations The glitch and error are part of digital creation. From programming errors to visual artifacts generated during image transmission, thee glitch constitutes a digital aesthetic that tries to generate tension on the clean image. The Medialab screen has physical glitches. Like any architectural element, it is affected by the passage of time. Many of its LED bulbs have died, and thus remain off or showing fixed or random colors. This call seeks pieces of digital art that work from glitch as aesthetics and concept. Taking advantage of the fact that the support itself generates a first approach towards error in the image, we invite artists to program the square with pieces that radicalize and dialogue with these new digital natures. How does it work? – Design and program your project on the programalaplaza platform (http://programalaplaza.medialab-prado.es/) – When ready, send it before May 23, 2021 – The creations […]
Curated by Tsering Frykman-Glen April 24th – June 4th 2021, Tangent Projects gallery. Opening Saturday 24th April, 12 – 2:30pm & 4:30 – 7:30pm. Everything we make to survive, including our bodies, comes under the label “low tech”. Bastard mortar is a traditional recipe that consists of mixing and reducing mortar with clay to improve its plasticity. In the world of ceramics, as in all things, there are purist beliefs regarding degrees of whiteness and a globalisation of accepted forms of construction. Within the context of “Construcción Bastarda”, we are following Mercè on a journey, an exploration of technological sovereignty. https://bit.ly/TP21CBMJM
Like in a perfect circle, I do return to the place where my first exhibition took place, Sineu. One of the many perceptible differences between those two biographical moments lies in the fact that I actually understand the role of the spectator as a participant in the work’s process. In a sort of symbiotic relationship, visitors will enjoy with the different works exhibited in Espai Sant Marc while they reinforce them with their experience. An appropiate way to understand my work is noticing the importance of code in it. I talk about code not only as technological scripting but as a meaning that is not going to be understood without taking in account the required elements. I believe spectators have a work to do putting together the different pieces that an artwork places in front of them. If not, they would only achieve an incomplete, although valid, experience, because that’s what we find day after day: multitude of codes that we use to replicate without understanding them, as the one singing the Quran phonetically. Even that, with the increase of technical complexity in my latests years’ projects, my opacity towards the spectators has lowered, as the enjoyment of them would return the efforts invested. Anyway, there are […]

The third ESC open call and its challenge for wave #2031 Spring-Summer is here! Thinking of the contemporary immersed in the digitalization world, once again VVOVVA asks artists to ‘Create art as you would do in 10 years in the future’. In particular, we aim to share works that explore the relations of nature and technology; and seek answers to questions that research the bond of the two. For example: What is to come? Will technology help nature to survive? Can those two exist in harmony? Do we do enough to preserve natural resources? This time the contemporary art gallery JOEY RAMONE → (located in Rotterdam, Netherlands) will shape the future of the ESC and select the most interesting works in collaboration with VVOVVA. Founded in 2012 by Greek artist Kiki Petratou & Dutch collector Hans Bakker, JOEY RAMONE can also be described as a ‘half-artist run gallery’. Right from the start, the gallery worked with international artists who use a diverse range of media to explore contemporary socio-political, cultural, and technological themes. The main objective of JOEY RAMONE is to provide a platform for contemporary art and discourse — an open communication or debate. ESC Wave #2031, SS is curated by JOEY RAMONE & […]

DUPLEX | Artists in Residence is an artist-run space, housing several studios, a residency program and a gallery, located in the center of Lisbon, in Graça neighborhood. Seeking to stimulate creative processes, experimentation and plastic production as well as the discourse that these dynamics originate, Duplex presents itself as a privileged territory for the coexistence of different artists, different ways of creating and different ways of thinking about the work of art and its context. Valuing advances and setbacks, valuing error, failure, and disruption as participants in contemporary praxis, the entire structure and functioning of the Duplex seeks, in addition to celebrating the final results, to bring the public closer to the conceptual and procedural richness of artistic creation. For resident artists and curators, Duplex residency program allows a quick insertion in the artistic community of Lisbon, offering the possibility, time and space to develop and show their work. With conversations, visits, discussions and monitoring of projects developed in residence, Duplex seeks to adapt to the interests and needs of each group of residents, working through open calls, but also accepting self-proposals. The residencies for curators are usually coordinated with the artistic residencies. Location: Lisbon city center – between Bairro […]

“Walking backwards” Two funded exhibition opportunities at SNEHTA – June & October 2021 The calls aim is to bring artists attention to past ideas and juxtapose those with our present condition. “Walking Backwards” was inspired by the Greek figure of the soothsayer Tiresias, appearing in Dante’s Divine Comedy.

15 March – 18 April The term “liminal” comes from the Latin word līmen, meaning “a threshold” and it stands for something relating to a transitional stage of a process. Because of the current world situation, we are experiencing liminality as a collective, but also as individuals facing our private challenges and transformations. This constant need for adaptation creates opportunities for growth that could have never been imagined before. Once the threshold is crossed, there is no way back. Marija Brasnic is using the gallery window as a liminal space to show her mixed media installation, made of a mirror and plexiglass panels. The whole surface, including the window, is covered with an abstract drawing that is ever-changing, depending on the viewer’s perspective. The viewer is invited to constantly reexamine and adapt to what they see, including their reflection in the mirror.
with Andrew Helton Spring 2021 | Virtual Program | 3/15/2021 – 4/24/2021 http://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-part-two-a-moment-is-a-reckoning Why reelaborate today a concept of the archive? In a single configuration, equally technical and political, ethical and juridical?…No one ever renounces—and this is the unconscious itself—the appropriation of power over the document, over its detention, retention or its interpretation. -Jacques Derrida Reports that say something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. -Donald Rumsfeld (on alleged weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) A moment is a rupture. It is a point at which the machinery (whether it’s time, domestic life, politics, civil obedience, work, health, etc.) we are all a part of breaks. Something becomes an object at the moment of rupture, when it is no longer (however briefly) a part of the machine. This is why moments become so important to us. It is a kind of freedom. A moment is a chance to feel as […]
BEST PRACTICE is pleased to announce a new show of works by Tecate-based artist Chantal Peñalosa. The exhibition will bring together current and past works in photography, painting, and video that broadly address the sociopolitical tensions that pervade the U.S./Mexico border through investigations of the mutual clime, shared firmament, and bifurcated landscape of this charged region. The camera is aimed at the sky to create photo diptychs that record the subtle shifts in cloud formations that happen in the time it takes to cross the U.S/Mexico border. A video records a performance work made on Avenida México, a street in Tecate, Baja California, that runs along the border between Mexico and the United States in which the artist assumed eye-level height with a USA border patrol truck parked on a small hill to survey the border by sitting atop the roof of a house. She first sits with her back to the truck and describes the scenery to it; she then turns to face the truck creating a one-sided dialogue with her action. Another video work reconciles a childhood memory of a colloquialism that explains, through myth, the phenomenon of condensation trails formed by the engines of aircraft “crossing the […]
Condemned to canvas, pencils, wood and words Lilo C. Karsten Rahulla Torabi Paul Hirsch Daniel Scheffel Four artists work with juvenile delinquents In September and October 2020, four artists from the Frankfurt artists’ association EULENGASSE worked with young offenders, a project developed in cooperation with the Jugend-Kultur-Werkstatt Falkenheim Gallus e.V. (JKWF). The art projects were carried out one after the other in their sculpture workshop in Frankfurt’s Gutleutviertel. Each artist worked with young people for up to six afternoons and was therefore available for the young people in addition to the artistic media of the sculpture workshop. The artistic works that the young people produced in the four sub-projects are presented and offered for sale in this exhibition in the EULENGASSE exhibition space in Frankfurt/Germany. A publication and a podcast series will accompany the exhibition. The project is part of »Participate NOW!«, the 2020 annual theme of the art association and exhibition space EULENGASSE.
March 8, 2021 (Intl Womens Day) 2pm PST Archival Content Report Instagram videochat shares archival content from past exhibiting artists of the PKULTRA franchise. Examples of archival types include this Visual Art Source article: Rumi Koshino, “Some Songs Have No Words,” 2011, archival inkjet print on paper, installation view, dimensions variable Continuing through December 31, 2011 Rumi Koshino’s site-specific installation, Some Songs Have No Words, muses on the most salient features of Form/Space Atelier. Koshino’s paper pyramids echo the watery patterns of the gallery’s linoleum floor and its well-aged wooden steps. Form/Space Atelier is an odd venue: it’s dominated by a central staircase that quickly descends to a small, dead-end landing. Koshino’s series of small paper sculptures are constructed from digital photographs of the 1960s-era flooring and the shabby stairs. Turquoise pyramids sit on the floor, echoing and blending into the pattern of the linoleum. Rows of pyramids trail up the stairs, and as they do their pattern and coloring changes to match the color and texture of the stairs themselves. This quiet, well conceived installation uses transparent technique and execution to highlight the unusual architecture of the gallery. Step carefully, however, as the pyramids are not fixed to the […]

After a very successful first season, we are pleased to announce the second round of the Pilot Light Residency at Arts Letters & Numbers that will run until the end of May. The Pilot Light Residency was initially conceived as an antidote to the many restrictions that prevented us from running our usual programs as well as from the recognition that after many months in isolation, artists were in need of a change in context to connect to their creative endeavors. Today, we continue our efforts to provide creators with a space to work in while abstaining from scheduled programs, community events, communal dinners etc. Given our expansive quarantine procedure upon arrival, as well as, protocols for social distancing during the stay we are extending the residency program so as to accommodate as many artists as possible in the safest way possible. Participating artists in this program will be offered private accommodation and studio space for a reduced price of $250 a week. During this time each person will be fully independent, yet co-exist in shared spaces. PRIORITY At the moment, this program will only be offered to artists currently located within the US, who can arrive to ALN without […]
THIRD SHIFT is an annual festival of public contemporary artworks that takes place in Saint John, New Brunswick and online. THIRD SHIFT 2021 will take place from August 19 – 22, 2021. Theme: TRAVERSE When we are having these calls it is important that all applicants think about their relationship to the land; THIRD SHIFT offers an opportunity to re-imagine and engage with the natural and built environment in what we now know as Saint John. The land on which THIRD SHIFT takes place is the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples first signed with the British crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with the surrender of lands and resources but, in fact, recognized Indigenous sovereign title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing, equitable, reciprocal, and respectful relationship between nations—a relationship that Third Space strives to uphold. We have an ongoing commitment to center Indigenous leadership and artistic expertise and we aim to foster meaningful relationships with Indigenous-led community groups through our festival. To learn more about Indigenous territories, treaties, and languages, the […]

Additional prizes will be awarded to the top 3 artists. For over 40 years, photomarathons have seen great success in cities all over the world, although they are usually limited to a single municipal area.

What is the relationship of a body with the moving image? How does culture inscribe meaning into bodies? Does our body connect us to the world or separates us from it? Have we overcome the body taboos? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, […]

HIER & JETZT: Connections (HUJ:C) is an exchange and residency program organized by artists for artists. The project calls upon international artists in exile who live in Berlin and seek a place for artistic production. The initiative, HIER & JETZT: Connections, defines exile as the involuntary loss of one’s social context and working environment in their country of origin for an uncertain period of time. The project is complemented by a series of lectures, workshops, and discussions held by artists, experts, and researchers in order to create a space for dialogue, mutual learning and understanding. Successful applicants are invited to work at B.L.O. Ateliers, in Berlin, for a period of three months. Additionally, a budget of 500 € is offered to each resident or group for production costs. Deadline: Sunday, February 28, 2021 Application’s Info in English – German – French

Artists. Musicians. Thinkers. Writers. Performers. Makers. Scientists. Architects. Dreamers. Arts Letters & Numbers is a place of creative urgency, a place to create new linkages and pathways of understanding in an interdisciplinary environment.

In 2020, reality shook. Opposing forces of slowing and momentum work simultaneously and warp the senses of time and space. As a result of our inability to perceive the present and plan the future, we are expected to adapt, to develop coping mechanisms, to break habits and paradigms – to a constant movement in a continuous present. For the 2021 exhibition season, we invite creators to submit proposals dealing with the idea of “Present Continuous” as an artistic interpretation or as an actual action resonating to the future. We want to present artistic trials centering on uncertainty as a guiding principle: Ideas that facilitate a system of internal rules and logic and that may influence the exhibition’s duration and meaning; proposals dealing with uncertainty in the exhibition’s space and duration context, encouraging live simultaneous occurrences both in the exhibition and in the virtual space. Recommended reading Proposals should be sent as 1 PDF file to [email protected] before February 20th, 2021. For more details and gallery space layout The proposal should include: Project description and demonstration mean. Preferrable display period: (April-June / July-September / October-December) How the element of time will be manifested in the exhibition. How the gallery space […]

All mediums welcome. Open to all USA based artists. www.wellwellprojects.com What’s So Funny? We’re in it for the laughs, and not just the kind we let out because it’s all gonna be okay.

This is an exhibition focused around comedy. We’re looking for work that hits the funny bone, maybe a good one liner, some slapstick. It can be absurdist, cute and playful, tragic to the point of comedy, obtuse, ephemeral, performative, and everything and anything in between. It’s just got to be funny.

The ‘Post Box’ long term exhibition project creates international visibility and interaction between artists during the traveling restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic. Artworks sent to the postbox of the Hypercube Space will be exhibited in a 105cm (W) x 170cm (H) x 33cm (D) public display window located next to the postbox itself. By hacking this advertisement display window, this idea engages with the art audience in the heart of central Lisbon, now home to a growing international community who have chosen the city as their home. This is in keeping with Hypercube’s manifesto to expand the notion of the artspace. Every month another international artist’s work will be selected and presented for a 4 week period as part of a rolling open call for submissions. The Theme – “Connections”: The main theme of the Post box exhibition series is “connections”. The media and concept of the exhibition are open. Please pick the work that represents your practice best. Submitted work is required to be in an appropriate format for the display window such as fine-art print, photograph, painting, mixed media, intervention, and installation. Please ensure the work can be easily posted (e.g. foldable, rolled, boxed, etc.) Expensive shipment […]

Kathmandu international artist-in-residence program (KIAR) is an initiative of Space A, a significant hub in the field of contemporary art both locally and internationally. The goal of the KIAR is to create an intellectual space where the residents will get the chance to penetrate the local cultural and socio-political contexts, as well as to combine their artistic practices (research, production, etc.) with meetings, lectures, and other discursive events with local and international artists, cultural experts, critics, and curators. Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks). Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. A conglomeration lies in the capital city, Kathmandu where cultures are blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal […]
It is a project of pieces that aim to evoke the moment of despair that any person suffers when faced with a horrible situation. Reducing the drawing to the minimum expression, we approach a logo or an emoticon, the emoticon is a form of global communication designed to be understood by everyone, because this anguish is a universal feeling and thus the message is shared. It is not about sharing suffering or empathizing, but the theme of the exhibition is to translate a universal human feeling into an artistic work. These pieces work like a commercial sticker, they transmit all the information with the minimum resources. Please see Facebook event for more details.

Sjimmie Veenhuis (1984) creates transformative installations in which he uses everyday materials in their original form. At …ism project space, Veenhuis created a spatial installation in which he tests his work against the current reality. The installation ‘SPATIUM’ is directive, monumental, safe, formal and it makes optimal use of the given space and in-between space of …ism. Without denying his own language, material and art practice, Veenhuis investigates what exhibition-wise is still possible in a one-and-a-half-meter society.
Eye’s Walk Digital Festival is happy to announce an Open-Call for our upcoming project: Project Lazaretta: Digital Stories from the Old and New World. Eye’s Walk Digital Festival returns to the Lazarets of Syros and Corfu islands. We visit places that have been quarantine stations for travelers, prisons, places of execution or asylums and aim to explore the search for a better life and hope, which can flourish in the most adverse conditions.

An interdisciplinary artist residency in suburban upstate of İstanbul.
AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artist Residency Program. For this call, priority (not exclusive) will be given to intervention proposals developed in the landscape, conceived from any creative discipline (sound, performance, visual arts, architecture, agriculture or any other approach that is linked to the theme). Such interventions may be carried out in the natural or semi-urban area of Blanca. For those interested in working with the community of Blanca, please bear in mind that projects of less than two months will not be accepted. The ability of artists to establish respectful relationships with the inhabitants and to be willing to engage in trial-error processes will be fundamental for these proposals. Theoretical research projects of any scientific or humanistic discipline may be applied to this call, provided that they have the artistic practice as their object of study. The Artist Residency Program is carried out in Centro Negra, the current headquarters of AADK Spain located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. This program is a space for reflection and artistic research that encourages linking research with the historical, cultural and geographical context of […]
Scarecrow is a solo exhibition by Korhan Erel, originally to be viewed at TOP Transdisciplinary Project Space in Berlin, but now lives online due to the recent Covid lockdown in Germany. A scarecrow is a humanoid object that is placed in open fields to scare off birds or other animals to protect seeds and crops. It is a mute object, which stands alone in the middle of a field, to protect the land and crops. The project appropriates and reverses the mute scarecrow object into a sound sculpture, which speculates their presence in the borders of countries or private lands to question two main themes: neglecting of nature and non-human beings as well as centralizing human presence over nature; and migration politics and their unwelcoming strategies. Erel’s sound installation explores ‘the fear from the other’, both human and non-human, using sound emanating from an amorphic, absurd sound-sculpture built using ready-made objects that one can easily procure. This speculative approach is a critique of both conventional methods of scaring animals, positioning humankind over nature and hate speech toward migrants and the other. The three-channel sound composition is based on field recordings, designed sounds and an unknown language consisting of made-up words […]
Exhibition dates: 15.1.2021 – 12.3.2021 https://gg3.eu/en/1-5-degrees/ The 1.5-degree target is understood to mean the goal of limiting the man-made global temperature increase due to the greenhouse effect to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 from the level before the start of industrialization. Almost all the states of the world have signed a treaty with the Paris Convention, according to which they intend to make efforts to achieve the 1.5 degree target. Climate researchers doubt that we will reach this goal, we would already be at 2 degrees. There is a lack of political will. Fridays for Future are fighting to keep the contract. What has to change to reach the goal? Researchers have developed scenarios that show ways. For example, the price of CO2 increases to 100€/ton. Renewable energies like wind power, solar energy are used instead of fossil fuels. We humans live well and in a climate-friendly way. Which pictures do artists create on this topic? We are looking forward to your exciting submissions! Open-call In a public call for entries, we invite artists to submit contributions for the above described theme for a group exhibition in our exhibition spaces. Disciplines: object, sculpture, installation, photo, painting, drawing, printmaking, video with […]

ADAPTATION, RETELLING: Walter Benjamin claimed that “story telling is always the art of repeating stories”. Stories repeated around the fire, passed on and amended through generations. Stories made into other stories, plays, poems, films. Adaptation as repetition or retelling; as translation or interpretation; as remaking for changed circumstances; as context shifting. Linda Hutcheon writes against negative conceptions of adaptation in A Theory of Adaptation. For her, adaptation is “repetition, but repetition without replication”, and “always involves both (re)interpretation and then (re)creation”. We invite submissions that consider ideas of adaptation for our Issue 8, Please submit via our email address [email protected] with ‘Submission, [your name, work title]’ as the subject heading, and use WeTransfer for large files. If you have a question, include ‘QUERY’ in the subject heading. Include a brief description of the submission (no more than 100 words). Limits: 1000 words for text 40 lines for poetry 5 images (unless part of an image series with minimal text) Audio-visual submissions (including music and film) are recommended up to 4 minutes, but may be accepted up to 10 minutes.

This image survey or image research runs throughout Matthias Aeberli’s entire oeuvre.
(ESP, English below) Comisariada por Margot Cuevas & Gabriel Virgilio Luciani 16 de octubre – 11 de noviembre, Tangent Projects gallery. La segunda ley hermética de la alquimia, as above so below (tanto arriba como abajo) busca evidenciar un intercambio dialéctico, coral y polifónico entre varios estados potenciales que puede tener toda entidad. Hay semejanzas, ecos y reflejos matéricos, esotéricos y mesotéricos que resuenan justamente como las metáforas resuenan con su sujeto de interés. Entre el estrato de existencia y percepción de arriba y el de abajo residen miles de mutantes y ciborgs; productos de ficción y fusión. Este entremedio se constituye por un simulacro que parece pero no es, que desobedece un anclaje fijo en la veracidad. Either but neither (ambos pero a la vez ninguno). Este fenómeno aparentemente paradójico es lo que genera un mareo muy peculiar: un horror existencial hacia lo ambiguo, indeterminable, invertido, lo que recuerda a pero no lo es. Nos encontramos así ante lo que se llama Postmodern Vertigo, un pánico, una dislocación sensorial y de la propia estructura que sustenta nuestra realidad. No es un rechazo a la realidad o a su existencia, ni tampoco una negación de nuestra existencia como sujetos. Es […]

Opening: If paintings were live pets, would you buy them more readily? oder Bilderlügen haben lange Beine
>> Opening: Friday 18.09.2020, 6 – 9pm and Saturday 19.09.2020, 1 – 5pm presentation by Matthias Aeberli Friday, 7 pm / Saturday, 4 pm We are delighted to present the solo exhibition If Paintings were live Pets, would you buy them more readily? Oder Bilderlügen haben lange Beine by Swiss artist Matthias Aeberli (Basel) at das Esszimmer. His method of sampling – content- and formal-wise – can be viewed as a visual experimental arrangement that revolves around the one question: „How does an image become an image?“. This image survey or image research runs throughout Matthias Aeberli’s entire oeuvre. The current exhibition at Das ESSZIMMER tries to fathom whether a lie is an inherent component of every painting, or if there can exist paintings that do not lie. Thereupon the provocative and confusing exhibition title is referred to. Aeberli’s sampling method and image research is incorporated into the exhibition concept in diverse ways. Thus, during the opening days, the artist will browse through a section of his numerous sketchbooks as part of a presentation – simultaneously projected and recorded, so that the sketchbooks will also be present during the exhibition. The front, street-side exhibition room becomes a Schaulager, where every […]

https://hyperdome.xyz/opencall/ HYPER FORM International 3D Modeling Competition | Deadline 5th of November 2020 1st Prize: 500€ | 2nd Prize: 250€ | 3rd Prize: 150€ LAPSUS Art Space and Laboratory is launching an International Abstract 3D-printable Sculpture Competition for artists under 35 in order to stimulate creativity in a digitized reality. The theme is Hyper Form, alluding to nonphysical and dynamic space, based on the simultaneity of plans and events in hyperreality – a dimension where the real and the fictional blend, or, as described by Jean Baudrillard “the generation by models of a real without origin or reality”. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic the digitized world becomes the world of communication, while sculpture, one of the most earthly of the arts, has the challenge to become fluid by digitization. Our open call wants to give a chance to young artists, 3D modelers, art and design students around the world to express their visions of hyperreality, seeing it both as a means and as a space to work within. The sculpture should function both as something generated and imagined in hyperspace, between the digital and the real – an object which becomes real only by way of its contradictions. Send your sculptures as […]
This exhibition presents a reflection on the transposition of choreography in contemporary art works and methods through photography, sculpture, video, and performance. The dancing body occupies a central place in this show, where the potential of movement is explored in visual art.
The influential Viennese media artist Peter Kogler shows the installation EYES ONLY, for which he also uses a 3D LED fan for the first time. The artist, who participated in the documenta IX in Kassel in 1992, is internationally renowned for his computer animations, video projections, and illusionistic as well as real spatial labyrinths that animate and redefine architecture. Using computer-set, digitally printed paper webs and a projection generated by a 3D LED fan, Peter Kogler transforms the whole gallery space into a showcase of so much attraction. Curved lines along the walls, ceiling and floor strive towards a hologram-like, free-floating eye, which, like the human one, is constantly in slight motion. The overall picture appears like a modern icon, which triggers a wide range of associations in the viewer, ranging from the illusion of the private sphere, through the public Big Brother level to the meta-level of the divine eye.
This was a sculpture project that has been transformed into scenic action. It has as its origin the history of the spoking sculptures of Rome. Pasquino is the nickname the Romans gave to a very dilapidated sculpture from the 3rd century BC found in Rome. The inhabitants of 1501 began to use this sculpture to hang on them writings against the power that daredto say what they were silent as dangerous, from which the word “pasquín” becomes. J.Cera shows us a video of the project: “Conversations with Pasquino”, a scenic piece that will be represented by holograms where Pasquino’s character recovers his own voice to tell the artist that he is about to announce the end of the story and that she must sing the lullaby of awakening. Joana Cera is a multidisciplinary artist which hybridizes its means of production and hers methodologies with a high formal and conceptual intensity; sculpture, video, drawing and installations, are the available media for hers creativity wich is lately developed in long research periods unrelated to the combustion of the artistic scene. She has worked with art galleries as; Ana Mas projects (Barcelona-Puerto Rico), La caja blanca (Palma de Mallorca), La casa amarilla (Saragossa) […]

This is the first time this expansive show comes to the United States. Curator Heyward has added new works by new artist members to GAP.

CrossingBorders an exhibition of works by members of Global Art Project, an international collaborative collective with over 50 members from 15 different countries. Exhibition concept: The Borders are wide, various, concrete and philosophical, offering an illusion of safety and definitive organization of reality ignoring the shifts in need and agendas at play at any given time on the international stage and the internal stage. Borders as a theme not defined, but implied. The obvious way to look at Borders is as it relates to geographic demarcation and socio-political implications, the artists in this exhibition take it one step further; Borders that confound and limit us personally; Borders to be psychologically challenged, broken through and/or accepted.

Curated by Carl Heyward at Gallerie Renee Marie, Benicia, California. On view through October 31, 2020. Despite our continuing troubles with COVID-19, artists are still working to interpret the world and their responses to it. And even through the many barriers that now, unfortunately, must exist, artists are still finding ways for the public to see their work. Once again, curator Carl Heyward has brought another excellent show to Gallerie Renee Marie. By appointment, the public is invited to visit this wonderful exhibition. The show features the photography of Oakland based multidisciplinary artist and poet Brian Auerbach. The main room of the gallery showcases Auerbach’s interpretive photographs debuting in the show. The intimate gallery is arranged in the ground floor space of one of Benicia’s historic homes, and Heyward has placed works of several Benicia based artists that compliment Auerbach’s ‘Obliterant’ theme in rooms adjacent to the main space. Auerbach captures heart grabbing images of graffiti, rust, painted marks, and advertising copy. Through digital manipulation, he alters and blends these fragments with images taken from nature. Auerbach makes powerful use of the color red in several especially effective pieces; and presents movingly mysterious images of dusk and the not-quite-seen things […]

An artist-in-residency within VIADELLAFUCINA16 Condominio-Museo. An experiment of urban regeneration and collective transformation through the power of art. Turin, Italy. CONTEXT viadellafucina16 was launched by Kaninchen-Haus in 2016, with the aim of giving life to the world’s first experiment of a Condominium-Museum. The project occurs within a majestic 19th-century building, that we find today in a state of decline, in the heart of the Turin’s district Porta Palazzo, close to the city centre, where the biggest open air market in Europe rises. Through an international open call, whose 1st edition received over 400 candidacies, the artists have been invited to realize their artwork in the common areas of the building, with the purpose of promoting its regeneration and activating a dialogue among the tenants. The winning projects were selected by the inhabitants themselves (about 200 people of various nationalities, living in 53 apartments) with the support of our Scientific Committee of curators and insiders, on the basis of the artists’ ability to engage the community in the design and production of the artworks, to interpret the community’s desires and to activate new forms of sociality through a process of co-creation and collective care. “Condominium” is a Latin word formed […]

Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]

Wanting to know more about the materials that I’ve never used before, or the methods that I’ve never tried before. It intrigues me. By experimenting the unknowns, I discover the way to understand them. I discover my way. Still, I do not know how it would resolve. The end result is unknown. What it would look like when all the “unknowns” are stacked together, how they would harmonize. The process leads itself. I keep trying till I find out. That’s my way of understanding the unknowns. When you face the unknown, you just need to dig deeper and deeper till you know them.
Now in its eighth consecutive year, Platforms Project is the international show that indicatively charts the art currently produced through collective initiatives by young artists on the international scene as they join forces to seek answers to contemporary artistic questions. In recent weeks, the whole world has been experiencing the rapid developments around the COVID-19 pandemic. Platforms Project, taking seriously into account the events as they unfold globally, the difficulty for many of our exhibitors to travel to Athens and the need to safeguard the health of artists and visitors alike, has decided to postpone this year’s event. Evidently, this year we will not get together; but creativity and art does not stop, so we shall meet on the internet. Platforms Project establishes a new approach to art viewing via Platforms Project Net, a web-based art fair. We stay at home but we continue to create and bring together the voices of the independent art scene, demonstrating the power of art and technology. The Platforms Project Net will enable the art-loving public to access the artists’ groups and their works via a digital exhibition. Viewers can try a new experience by visiting the Platforms Project website for 15 days, from […]

KIRA offers creative activities for the home-bound ST. ANDREWS, NB – Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts (KIRA) has adopted a creative approach to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Working together with their alumni from around the world, the artist residency is offering quick and accessible creative activities online, that anyone can do at home while being in lockdown. Activities range from drawing to sculpting to singing and writing. KIRA’s Art Director Geoff Slater has created a new program to adapt to these challenging times. KIRA has a large supportive creative network that has been called upon to assist in this endeavor. The KIRA alumni did not hesitate after being asked to immediately start sending tutorial videos that are quick, engaging and, most importantly, do not require the purchasing of art supplies. So, everyone can stay home and stay safe. The ‘KIRA Creative Quarantine’ series is visible on KIRA’s Facebook and Instagram pages as well as on the website at www.kingsbraeartscentre.com/tutorials. New videos are posted every Tuesday and Friday. www.kingsbraeartscentre.com www.facebook.com/kirainternational
Sound Occupations are part of Student International film festival’s (STIFF) supporting program (26. – 29.11.2020.) developed under the Rijeka Capital of Culture 2020. We invite artists to send us their work that explores, records, changes, interprets, produces or in any other way interacts with the sounds of everyday life; in any preferred artistic medium. Exhibition Sound Occupations is dedicated to sound as a primary generator of everyday and artistic impulses. Sound could be understood as an epistemological formative instrument that enables us to analyze urban and imagined spaces but also as an aesthetic tool to help us build and rebuild these landscapes in practice. Soundscape determines life’s rhythm, it influences people’s emotions, their motion and thoughts. It occupies, manipulates, alternates, provokes and defines our realities. Examining the sounds of a city or a certain space and community, we can find out a lot about social, political and economic forces at work in those spaces: who and what produces the sounds? Who controls it? Which sounds are dominant and which ones are missing? In what way does the sound connect or separate individuals, groups and images? What happens when a certain sound disappears? We are searching for works that will explore, […]
This calls for new ways of navigating and opening spaces for people to share experiences and works. Not being able to physically be in the same space together is new for all of us. We are asking, what are the questions of now? How do we embrace the huge unknowns and continue to build communities, to bring people, works, voices, and thoughts together? In this time of great uncertainty our mission remains; to bring people together and embrace the unknown.

Quasi-fairytales as ordinary interior objects. Hand-drawn illustration based Textiles Print Design Exhibition near the Seonjeongneung park (Royal Tomb). ________________________ Once upon a time, There was a girl trapped in an enchanted forest. She walked, watching light shining through tall trees, beautiful, secluded and magical. She walked and walked, with no other human presence. She walked and walked and walked, saw wonderful mythical creatures crawling in and out the tree trunks, seek and hide in flowering bushes. She walked and walked and walked, heard them talking in undecodable languages to her ear. She walked and walked and walked and walked, in silence. She walked and walked and walked and walked and walked, in a beautiful evergreen enchanted forest. There once was a girl trapped in the enchanted forest. She walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and walked, became a woman but remained a girl. She walks and walks and walks and walks, just ever after. kimyo
Descărnarea(RO) fleshing(ENG) is the process of cleaning the bones by successively removing the useless tissue layers. In the same way, the artist works with the realities of his own worlds through a metaphorical fleshing. He digs to find images and ideas that do not easily reach the surface of the psychic, in the superficial layers of the conscious. The works exhibited in “Descărnare”/”Fleshing” represent the testimonies of the search efforts. They took shape in the artist studio, after long hours of searches and flashing moments of inspiration. Curiosity and the need for introspection have led to the formal definition of the visible works now in the context of the space from the ETAJ modeled and reformed through the same process of fleshing. Digging deeper and further removing each layer of psychological tissue, one gradually reaches the hard core, the immutable center, the skeleton. Beyond the bone structure, things go into the abstract, becoming an infinite ocean of form and content, everything and nothing. Thus, the road ends are also a lifeline in front of the abysses. Although it does not always offer the expected reward, once the whole bone is cleansed, you only have the option to end it with […]
On Friday 14 of February at the 20 hours Espai sant Marc will present works of the artist A.J.Ballester, focused on the graphic art, black and white, with clear influencies of the engraver Frans Masereel. A.J.Ballester always do his works at series, is a way that facilitates him that his work was coherent. These series always are the result of an intention, of something that really motivates him and that needs to express of a conclusive way. The titles of the last series at what A.J.Ballester has worked and works now give an idea about where is going his tematiques: “Depeculator Aerari”, “Relats de poder”, “El somni de l’amor produeix monstres”, “Un món feliç”. This last title could be for all them. Those works talks us always about a moral decomposition. With this title that recalls the famed novela of Aldous Huxley presents us a work that does a research at the darkest part of the human beings. Regarding the technics, one will see drawings of charcoal or ink and xylography. The xylography merit a comment aside for his expressive immediacy. The treatment of the dark and the clarity, with the half keys limited. The famed sentence of “less is […]
For her residency in Athens, Anna Godzina was wandering at the wider districts of the town finding elements that could shape the future perception of our present times. The artist’s research focuses on the simple gestures of everyday life manifesting themselves as encounters of seemingly random objects, while also exploring the materiality of the city; the remains of the ongoing civilization creating constellations between space and time. Collecting and reproducing materials that are set in motion with the use of kinetic devices, light sources and soundscapes; she aims to discover their after-functioning nature that in future could be perceived as archaeological conclusions. Godzina is interested in notions of sound, movement and time-keeping, all as cycles of construction and destruction in an era that is marked by the direction of advanced mechanization. Beyond the aesthetic aspect of her work, the artist deals with what the object carries in its physical sense: weight, gravity and force –at the same time she develops her work following the rules of functionality while always embracing the unexpected. Anna Godzina gives life to her sculptures which is seem to perform autonomously. Her interest in the animated character of her sculptures derives from a study and exploitation […]

More than the actual candy is the wrapping that matters. After all, a balloon is just nothingness covered in rubber. Wrapping trees in stories about chairs. Drawings in the sand, graffiti on walls, price tags, logos on your clothes. Lines of flight on the surface of the world. We live inside an arrow storm. Everything has a purpose and a destination. Jumping from stone to stone to stone to stone to stone… And it’s all danced out and we all play nice with each other. We play being humans who play be ing boys and girls who play being doctors playing consultation. Like onion skins, a matryoshka or a fractal pattern. Though you have to admit that fractals don’t go as well with cheese and bacon. To make ourselves understood we’ve engaged in a thorough process of rolling dices, jumping in one leg, smelling the walls and looking at things upside down and we have revealed exclusively for you the

Spiral inward. Follow I line of text to its source. Inhale, but understand exhalation is mandatory. A tributary flows into a larger body. A branch grows out from a main axis. Either way there is a whole and the parts of a whole and movement, always movement. A gesture towards merging. – Ginger Teppner
`Kandinsky claimed that artistic feelings were actually about perception, so colours can influence your mood. Yellow is potentially upsetting while blue predisposes most people to meditation, having a soothing effect. Kandinsky’s theories on colour were similar to those of Goethe: certain colours can cause certain emotions. Colour has the ability to put the viewer in direct connection with his spiritual state. “Loud Silence of colours” proposes a game, a walk in the imaginary world, a parallel reality that materializes by mere awareness. Automatism and improvisation underlie the biomorphic and fluid forms and the continuous lines, they are aided by exploring the unconscious and exploiting colours to their maximum capacity. How do we translate thinking mechanisms in a visual form? We can find a language and some systems by which to express them. The twist is that the viewer can also become a creator because each of us perceives things differently. Therefore, his role is an important one because he has the ability to compose and decompose what he sees and create his own feeling. What happens when we try to translate sound into colour or condition into a form? You tell me.

Exhibition ‘Den här gången ska jag (be)hålla mig för mig själv’ by artist Jaana Sundström, organised by Flat Octopus in Stockholm, Sweden on 15–17 November 2019,
AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this edition, priority will be given to those proposals that focus on an expanded concept of architecture. We propose to consider listening and modelling spaces, experimenting with ways of inhabiting and recovering the memory of places as possible lines of action. For those interested in working with the community of Blanca, please bear in mind that projects of less than two months will not be accepted. The ability of artists to establish respectful relationships with the inhabitants and to be willing to engage in trial-error processes will be fundamental for these proposals. Theoretical research projects of any scientific or humanistic discipline may be applied to this call, provided that they have the artistic practice as their object of study. The Artistic Residency Program is carried out in Centro Negra, the current headquarters of AADK Spain located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. This program is a space for reflection and artistic research that encourages linking research with the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region. We invite all those interested to submit […]
RafinX RafinX is an ongoing artistic research, started by Cristian Ghiță during his bachelor studies (2016-2017) which follows the posthumanist premises of the individual’s repositioning towards technique and nature. More precisely, started as a photographic documentation and continued as a series of objects and installations, the current research addresses one of the topics of acute recent interest, namely the situation of the abandoned industrial landmarks of the communist era. The project opens several directions for analysis: the disuse and abandonment situation, the destruction of the identity of highly industrialized cities, and the question of human intrusion into the natural space. Nature’s willpower shouldn’t be neglected, as she is capable of retrieving the decrepit technological perimeter, of gradually reclaiming any human construction, regardless of size, force or purpose. The ephemeral nature of the human condition pushes the analysis in the direction of questioning the validity of modern anthropocentrism, in order to establish posthuman ethics and aesthetics. The industrial site chosen by the artist is the Astra Refinery, located near the town of Ploiești, one of the most important Romanian industrial centres. This choice is not accidental. We know that our identity is intimately related to the places where we spend parts […]

Alfred gallery is happy to announce a year of exhibitions examining the concept exhibition space and expanding its initial definition. At the dawn of the third decade of the 21st century, we seek to challenge the traditional conception of exhibitions and exhibition spaces, and to re-examine their role in the artistic field. Upon reaching 15 years of activity, the Alfred cooperative members seek to open a practical discussion around these issues and try to redefine our mission as a collaborative gallery and as an art and cultural institute. This is an open invitation for project proposals that focus on collaborations and consist of multi-medium works in various fields of arts: visual art, music, poetry, dance, theater and film, and that may integrate with other fields of knowledge: science, technology, humanities, activism and more. We are looking for projects that seek to explore the potential of events and occurrences in the exhibition space as part of the creative process they propose. We would be happy to receive proposals based on transitions between mediums and disciplines, and on exploring the relations between those areas as a form to produce synergy. Proposals may consist of a collaborative work produced as a team, or […]

Gaslight is the clinical term used to describe psychological abuse. The victim is manipulated in various forms, especially by denying the act of abuse, therefore weakening her / his judgment. The aftereffect can be compared to the state of brain hallucinations, damaging the mechanism of perception, responsible for both recalling the past and designing predictions for the future. This project denounces such an experience (avoiding extreme paranoia, as well as conspiracy theories), using the way that reality is built and what sets the values of what is true or not. Trapped in a box, the brain gets stimulated, through our senses and, that will determine the perception of reality. Whenever you want to recall something, it is going to be tainted because the brain pulls a memory out of a hidden drawer, then the interpretation with the new YOU, the ever-changing YOU, is going to change your perception of the past. You can cope with reality using the idea that you get to choose what your brain gets contaminated with, practising empathy until you expand your sense of self, thus, getting relief from the role of the victim.
Opening reception Friday 18th October 2019 from 6 pm to 10 pm. With a performance by SIMKA at 8 pm. While inspecting a somewhat masterful figurative painting, it is easy to forget that in no way is it a captured image of something real. It is merely a collection of pigments on a surface. Especially nowadays, with all of us being more or less experts in viewing and judging photographs, it is worthwhile reiterating the exact relationship between motif and painting: The artist observes a scene or object and using her skill and cultural understanding, then fixes paint and pigment to a background. Another person, upon seeing this display, uses his own cultural understanding and imagination to interpret what it is the artist has depicted. No automatism is present in this relationship. There are no guarantees that the audience will see or feel what the artist intended. A certain amount of shared cultural understanding, as to what constitutes a painting and how it is to be made, is crucial for there to be communication – which is the key-word here. Making and looking at a painting is an act of communication, not of recording. This becomes all the more evident […]

LA PARED offers month-long residencies in Colombia or Mexico City. We offer identical programmes in both countries.
Playing GOD” is emphasizing on the artist’s individuality, while “why?” asks the question of the individual intervention within the group. „why?” questions the ethics and morality of “playing GOD”. „why?”, in this case, is addressing the critical eye, the art consumer, the one who decides whether someone’s creation is worthy of becoming iconic. What is good art, what is bad art? Who deserves the limelight? Who gets to decide? Who gets to play God in our daily lives and what are the rules of the game?

Tides are a sign of passing time. By observing the river or the ocean tide, a whole dimension is hidden, underneath the water. A whole universe exists. Because of climate change, the world is transforming. Marine species started moving but they are not all as fast and they cannot all adapt at the same pace. Some species are endangered by these changes. The project Marées is a poetic reflexion about passing time and changes that are happening in all bodies of water everywhere. Members’ Window Show Opening on Friday, Septembre 13, 2019 at 6pm Martin Cormier has a training in Visual Arts from Université de Montréal à Québec and in Education from Université du Québec à Rimouski. His work was exhibited in multiple exhibitions in Quebec and is part of public and private collections in Canada, the United States and Europe. His artistic practice is mostly photography, drawing and print and questions time and duration in relationship to existence (beginning to end, life and death). Ecology also takes an important place in his reflexion.
In a near future, a pizza delivery guy and his wife Feu Carthasis are in love and their story is passionate and full of rhythm and music. He used to be a sculptor and a DJ in a nightclub. She has been possessed by an old teacher of her, Fulcanelli the alchemist and since then has been lounging in fake palaces posing as operas. In this profoundly wild ghetto, marginal artists rub shoulders in rivalry. Their attempts to break off with their past grow tired and the pizza delivery guy run into a mutant, the new hope of contemporary art who scatters desire and dust upon the city. Performative intrigues, artistic manipulations and transforming states mark L’opéra d’or, a polyphonic writing project starring the voice of ambitious marginal artists whose destiny is yet to be fulfilled. Choir and visual art, installation and sound which draws from the codes of catharsis, intrigue, choral book, epic music, expressionism and thriller tv shows. Opening on Friday, Septembre 13, 2019 at 6pm Performance on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 6pm Artists and performers, Geneviève Crépeau and Matthieu Dumont have been collaborating since the end of the nineties under the name Geneviève et Matthieu.

Johan Eriksson about his art: ”I designed my first mapas a five-year-old. The inspiration for drawing ones own urban landscapes came from an interest in Stockholm’s buildings, traffic and rail-related public transport and also how this is depicted in maps and city plans. Eventually I discovered more of the outside world and other major cities such as. Beijing, Berlin, Pittsburgh and others. During the 1990s, I started a correspondence with various traffic companies around the world regarding modern tram traffic in Stockholm. Some of the envelopes I work with come from these traffic companies, others are from friends who send me letters from different countries. Different sorts of stamps, addresses on or a fold in the envelope form the conditions I must relate to. I see a possible picture in the relationships between these, how the cities are built in relation […]

The Collectivists – Group Portrait Curator: Orly Hoffman Opening: Thursday 29.8 at 20:00, Tel Aviv Artists’ House The exhibition The Collectivists – Group Portrait presents six Tel Aviv collective galleries under one roof in Tel Aviv Artists’ House. The members of the galleries were invited to carry out a self-curated action, to formulate an index and an ID of sorts that will outline the portrait of its collective activity. The exhibition features Alfred Gallery, P8 Gallery, Hanina Gallery, Indie Gallery, Benjamin Gallery, and the young Nolobez Gallery, each selected themes and subject matters that represent and reflect their own DNA in different ways. The gallery artists, who are usually engaged in the administrative and practical operation of the gallery as a space for solo exhibitions and various collaborations with guest artists, were invited to present themselves/their work together as a collective. This brief and task became a driving force that challenged the underlying foundations of each gallery, which for the most part, are not addressed in the interaction and shared artistic creation of all of its members. The act of coming together, searching for an idea, looking for connections and common references in the works, summoned a process of introspection […]

ARTIST CALL OUT tactileBOSCH presents Under the Counter Culture an immersive, site responsive, multimedia programme celebrating the interconnection between art and nightculture. UTCC takes place across multiple venues presenting exhibitions, events, performances, screenings and participatory workshops Night Culture has long been at the forefront of avant-garde arts practice and the aesthetic and atmosphere of club culture has informed and inspired creative activity, individual and collective action where inhibitions and expectations are deconstructed, revealing a platform for free expression, experimentation, participation and play. Artists are asked to submit work that explores and celebrates all aspects of night culture and the counter cultural and non normative activities that it inspires. We shine a light on the value of grass roots night spaces to our urban landscpape and their ability to create action environments that encourage participation, invent new cultural forms and build new connections and their efforts to build unique platforms for inclusion, connection and presence in a world of increasing hostility and disconnect. tactileBOSCH invites submissions from both emerging and established artists. Artists and musicians from all mediums are invited to apply, however live work, performance, audio visual and installation is particularly encouraged. Opportunities exist for large scale site responsive work, […]

THE TIDAL FLOOD BENEATH THE LUNAR SWAY Lili Agg, Nikolett Balázs, Bence Barta, Ron Fischer, Veronika Romhány, Nóra Teplán Opening: August 15, 2019 / 7pm August 15 – September 6, 2019 The exhibition comprises works from six young artists from Hungary, members of MŰTŐ (Budapest, HU), an artist-run independent platform and art collective with the mission to create a physical space for young artists to experiment and find new ways of creation. Through a diverse program they try to expand the boundaries of art, focusing on emerging artists, building a community through a critical curatorial approach and democratic structure based on DIY culture. Most of the works in the exhibition appear to be the result of a process of sedimentation, both physical and theoretical, embedded with layers of labor and discourse. Several pieces relate to the influence of power and/or structures of power over the individual. Some of the artworks seem as if they were the conclusion of a natural and violent catastrophe, like a hurricane or a flood; bits of once complete things, that have been torn, shredded, eroded and decayed. Others are unharmed and intact, but nevertheless in their wholeness they are a reaction to “the fragmented identity […]

CrossingBorders What Borders are you willing to cross? An exhibition of works by members of Global Art Project, an international multimedia collaborative collective with over 50 members from 15 different countries. Exhibition concept: The Borders are wide, various, concrete and philosophical, offering an illusion of safety and definitive organization of reality ignoring the shifts in need and agendas at play at any given time on the international stage and the internal stage. Borders as a theme not defined, but implied. The obvious way to look at Borders is as it relates to geographic demarcation and socio-political implications, the artists in this exhibition take it one step further; Borders that confound and limit us personally; Borders to be psychologically challenged, broken through and/or accepted. Risk is the enemy of Fear. Love is the enemy of Hate. Change is the enemy of Complacency. The artists in this exhibition are familiar with Borders and how it manifests in their lives as creative human beings. Emphasis must be given to the importance and timeliness of this exhibition as an outlet for frustration and anxiety as artists attempt to illustrate, enact and represent both change and consciousness raising on a world-wide scale as well as […]
The project that Neno Belchev will present at Espai sant Marc on the 24th of July is “About some features, specifics and consequences of “street” video art with “poor” quality in one frame” The project ironically combines the creative approaches of video art with street art and actionism in urban environments. Examining their different aspects, the project aims to find new public language. It uses the different opportunities, which are offered by these seemingly different media through its innovative approach to them in a way that aims to maximize the impact. Technically, the project works with handy and found materials, thereby reducing budget expenses to a minimum. It elegantly avoids the hooligan approach in street art and puts social messages in a new context. Neno Belchev, graduated in Mural Painting from the National Academy of Art in Sofia, Bulgaria. He works as video artist and filmmaker as well as in the fields of performance, installation, sculpture and new media. Neno has made one full-length movie, four medium-length documentaries and numerous short narrative films and video art works, which won prizes, awards and nominations from international video and film festivals in the United States, Russia, the Netherlands, Spain, India, Malaysia, Romania and Austria, […]

Like the pyramids, constructed stone by stone, completing a whole assembly, the media which depict movement – as the film and video – appear to be constructed slide by slide, creating a motion. Speaking about Architecture of Mind through the methods of video art, we can consider several aspects in building an image such as a story or a message, discovering the architectural methods of thinking and developing an idea, emotion or an impression. Building up an image of an image, creating an imaginary reality, constructing elements of entire thought, inverting existed perspective, replacing the inner with the outer, constructing dreamed goals, manipulating a software engineering and speaking about a human-built system are regarded as subjects referreing to a number of layers of a developing process of creation. This particular collection of views presents the direct and the indirect touch with the architectural object or processes. The artworks are […]

Along the course of the St-Laurent river, Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf offers us Anticipation perpétuelle, an out of the ordinary literary trail composed of ten signs pegged along the bike path. Depending on which way we are coming from, the nature of the messages shifts. On one side we can re-discover aspirational and wishful quotes about the twenty-first century from the after-war years. On the other side, in echo, the signs display the consequences of the alarming and evergoing growth of the human race. « The two reading place in opposition two sides of our era : the one that was dreamed about and idealized in the past, that was evoking a better life, already fast behind and outdated by nowadays technology ; and the one decried, telling an unknown and scary future, more a nightmare than a dream, a much less innocent vision than after the war, a brutal awakening to bad things to come.« – Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf Anticipation perpétuelle will be presented along the St-Laurent river from June 27 to August 18 2019
With a research desk installed on her tricycle, Genevieve Gasse rides the bike path between Regart and the Maison Natale de Louis-Fréchette. During her travels, she creates spontaneous artistic manoeuvers which question what is in place in order to further her research on art. Vélo-Bureau: Le chemin pour se rendre is a project of relational art which grows based on the evolution of the research by the artist and her meetings with the public. Gasse is asking “What is art?” and questioning the artistic process and the different steps as well as the multiple roles the artist takes on in their practice. In the gallery window and the entrance of Regart, Gasse diverts the initial function of the space by installing the Centre de recherche en art infiltrant (CRAI). Searchers occupy the temporary office space with the mission of doing research and artistic maneuvers questioning established systems like the initial function of an object, space as well as norms and perceptions. The CRAI also has for mandate to manage the activities of the desk-cycle. During a writer residency over the summer, author and art critic Cynthia Fecteau will join Gasse on her bike path journey and recount the events. An inventory of texts […]
Both avid collectors of collections, Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf, and Charles Sagalane are working collaboratively on an installation in the gallery where respective collections meet to become one on the walls of Regart. Constituted of a sample of objects from their personal collections, the result is heterogeneous and multifaceted. The objects are superimposed to a text painted on the walls. The four-handed text evokes the accumulation of words, objects, ideas, collections was first published in its entirety in 2016 in number 166 of Estuaire magazine. In the exhibition Ma collection d’exposition, a made-up character of a collector exists in the imagination. He is at once both and neither the authors-collectors.

Inspired by my childhood in the ’90s, “Of, ce dor, check-in, ce jale!” it’s an interpretation of the moment when communism clashed with capitalism. It’s the place where the east meets the west, the old meets the new, simplicity with opulence and the humor with sadness.
