FADO Performance Art Centre: Call for Proposals
Emerging and Early Career Artists Series 2011

Initiated in 2002 by local artist and educator Tanya Mars, FADO's annual Emerging Artists Series offers a professional exhibition opportunity to local and regional emerging and early career artists and curators. Artists are asked to respond to a call for submissions based around a thematic context. In 2011 the Emerging Artists Series is curated by Gale Allen.

Deadline: January 15, 2011 5PM (Submissions must arrive by this date)

FADO Performance Art Centre is seeking proposals for performance proposals from emerging and early career artists for our annual Emerging Artists Series. Proposals should consider the relationship between popular aesthetics, academia, contemporary art, and common cultural norms. Throughout time popular aesthetic movements have often incorporated transgressive actions, ideas, and aesthetics that challenge academic canons and popular opinion. Examples include but are not limited to:
-intuition, séances and psychics;
-humor as aesthetic;
-danger fun;
-webcams, youtube and vimeo;
-representation as revolt;
-gender history, gender bending, stereotypes in early striptease;
-drag aesthetics and the representation of the other;
-the role of privilege in transgression;
-amateur aesthetics incorporated into prime time television shows;
-the representation of abjection and stereotypes as entertainment on popular television.

Framework:
FADO invites submissions for performance works from emerging or early career artists. The event and exhibition will take place in Toronto between March 8 –13, 2011, and will be accompanied by the publication of an exhibition booklette. Artist fees will be paid. We encourage a variety of performance formats including short works and durational or multi-day projects.

Proposals should include:
-Statement of artistic practice;
-Description of proposed performance (include duration/materials/ tech needs);

A drummer has been contracted through the local musicians’ union to play along with an audio recording THAT he has not previously heard. He has been told only that the music goes through a number of changes and that he should play   continuously – always searching for a point of reference, an underlying beat – allowing him to play along without changing his rhythm. The audio recording the drummer will be performing along with is THE TOP SONG by Ian Murray, 1970.

6. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: VIVA! Art Action – 3rd edition
Deadline date: December 3, 2010; Source: Rachel Echenberg

From the 1st to the 8th of October 2011 in Montreal, Canada
 
DEADLINE: December 3, 2010
 
VIVA! Art Action is a shared initiative between the artist-run centers articule, Clark, DARE-DARE, La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse, Praxis art actuel and Skol, which gave rise to the first international live art event in Montreal in the fall of 2006. VIVA! Art Action proposes a vibrant environment that favors emerging, ephemeral, unpredictable and constantly shifting art practices. Inspired by the success of the two precedent editions, the six artist-run centres have set up a third VIVA! Art Action event in the fall 2011, wishing to renew their commitment to art that manifests itself in the « here and now »!
 
The first two days of VIVA! 2011 will be exclusively dedicated to the invited artists and professionals of VIVA!. allowing to meet each other and to exchange ideas in an open and convivial setting. VIVA! 2011 will be shorter in duration than in previous years and will have fewer artists participating; as a result, each artist will have the possibility to intervene several times during the course of the event. And In order to provide the flexibility necessary to live art, and in addition to a structured programme of performances and discussions over five days, VIVA! 2011 will also provide open spaces for non-programmed exchanges and spontaneous actions.
 
VIVA! invites local, national and international artists, artists’ collectives, and theorists to describe to us their practices and intentions for performances, happenings, actions, infiltrations, public and participative interventions, workshops and debates. We encourage work that address the specificity of a context, be it work presented in VIVA’s central location, the old St-Michel Bath, in the storefront and gallery spaces of the participating artist-run centres, or in public space, the private sphere, in non-sites…
 
VIVA! respects the artist fee rates established by RAAV/CARFAC 2010 and contributes as much as possible to travel and accommodation expenses.
 
For more information, please visit our website: vivamontreal.org/call-for-submissions/
Or contact us at: info@vivamontreal.org

Your submission must include:
- A curriculum vitae
- An artist statement (max. 1 page)
- An intention of a project specifying spatial and technical needs (max. 1 page)
- A maximum of 20 digital images on a CD and/or a maximum of 1 DVD

10. CALL FOR PROPOSALS: ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival
Deadline date: December 31, 2010; Source: ANTI Festival

September 27 – October 2, 2011

Celebrate a decade of ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival: 27th of September to 2nd of October 2011, Kuopio, Finland. Ten years of ANTI: it’s time to REMAKE, REBUILD, RENEW! This is an open call to artists to propose a site-specific project for the 2011 ANTI Festival.

We ask you to respond to the following theme: REMAKE, REBUILD, RENEW

With economic, ecological and social change underway across the world, due impart to the financial crisis, we are challenged by the impact this process my have on our daily lives. Of course there has perhaps not been a time when this has not been the case but today that process could be seen to be accelerating.  Governments and councils are involved in a dramatic remaking of financial and political structures – something soon to be felt in Kuopio. Around us environments are rapidly changing, be that by the rebuilding of urban environments (Kuopio’s market square is a case in point) or by our use of the world’s natural resources. In response we are asked to change, to re-imagine our everyday lives. Whether our response is positive, negative or neither it is a process that might well define our age.

For ten years ANTI has re-imagined the public and private spaces of Kuopio. Festival projects have reconfigured the everyday places of the city, asking us to rethink them, re-imagine and re-approach our relationship to the world around us. It’s that process that we’ll concentrate on for this 10th edition of the festival.

Possible points of departure for your project might be:
-How do you rebuild and remake in your creative practice?
-What does it mean to re-imagine a previously made project?
-What does it mean to revisit and re-imagine a known space?
-How is change celebrated?
-How is changed resisted?
-How does the city effectively renew itself and what role might creative activity play in this?

All projects at ANTI are shown in the public space, and all have an integral relationship to space in which they occur. All forms of work are welcome. The closing date for proposals to reach us is December 31st 2010. Please carefully read the guidelines to submitting a proposal before completing the online application form. The guidelines can be found at www.antifestival.com
 
ANTI is an international contemporary arts festival presenting site-specific works made for public space. Over the past decade ANTI has presented live, sonic, visual and text-based art from today’s most exciting and innovative artists. A truly international festival and Finland’s foremost presenter of Live Art, ANTI is a meeting place for artists and audiences fascinated by how art shapes and responds to the places and spaces of everyday life.

ANTI’s emphasis is on site-specificity. The festival understands this term in an expanded sense; proposals may suggest works that deal with a site geographically, culturally or by association etc. The proposal form asks artists to state their preferred site for their project. Please think carefully about where and how a project will be sited. The festival will undertake all negotiations to allow projects to use public/private space. Please remember that ANTI does not programme works for gallery or theatre spaces.

As ANTI festival takes place in public space it is essential proposals consider a site’s pre-existing ‘audience’; be they passers-by, customers or residents. Alongside those who purposely visit the festival, a substantial part of ANTI’s audience are members of the public who come across the works by chance.

Proposal form: All proposals must be sent using the electronic form located on the festival’s web site. The form must be completed in English. The form allows a link to be made to any online documentation artists may have of previous work, CV and images. BEFORE COMPLETING THE FORM PLEASE READ THE PROPOSAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES.

The proposal deadline is December 31st 2010.
