ABOUT Commitment Issues

 

Commitment Issues presents the work of five artists who use their bodies as the primary source material for investigating qualities and dimensions of commitment – to ideas, to performance, to audience, and to themselves. Through play, risk, ritual, and sexuality, these artists transcend fixed social, psychological, physical, and spiritual notions of commitment.

 

Further confounding the interplay of fixed notions of commitment, Commitment Issues is presented at Oasis Aqualounge, Toronto's preeminent swinger's club. Performance sites will include the outdoor heated swimming pool, steam room, hot tub and locker room. Audiences are invited to stay late and enjoy all of Oasis Aqualounge's amenities, including a sauna, two bars and multiple lounges. Locker and towel service provided. Bring your bathing suit or birthday suit.

 

Curator Jess Dobkin states, “Here, commitment is positioned as a subject and a substance that artists can stretch and subvert in the creation of their work, altering terminology, definition, and association.”

 

In addition, the artists and curator engage in a panel discussion entitled Processing at Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse, University of Toronto on November 17 from 7:30-9:30 pm. The panel is co-sponsored by the Graduate Centre for Study of Drama at the University of Toronto and the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto.

2. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Interdisciplinary Territories: Art and the Environment

Deadline: November 1, 2011; City: Montréal, Canada; Source: Victoria Stanton

 

RAIQ Call for Submissions

Interdisciplinary Territories: Art and the Environment

 

The Regroupement des arts interdisciplinaires du Québec (RAIQ) invites proposals for the second edition of its biannual symposium which aims to improve the understanding of interdisciplinary practices. The event, which will feature artist talks, deambulations, an installation on the patio, and an online correspondence project, will take place on May 25th and 26th, 2012 at the Maison de la Culture Côte-des-Neiges.

 

An increasing number of artists are currently exploring avenues to present their work not within the confines of the traditional “white cube” or “black box” but out in the world amidst the public – infiltrating the urban fabric, rural communities, charged spaces or abandoned places. This is the case for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists working with the environment. Often, art that unfolds in the public space is at the crossroads of several disciplines, artistic and non-artistic and comprises ambulations, actions, maneuvers, street art, ephemeral installation, and participatory art. Some artists’ trajectories are directly inspired by nature – whether it be wild, caged, or damaged – while others question the very possibility for art to actually still address "nature" or the "natural."

 

In order to further investigate the connections between artists and the environment, the RAIQ is organizing a two-day symposium in May 2012 at the Maison de la culture Côte-des-neiges (MCCDN). The symposium will propose a critical reflection on the multiple territories of interdisciplinarity. Asking questions such as: How do artists integrate the environment within their creative process? What are the specific issues (and what is at stake) when an artist inscribes his or her work into a particular territory? Four areas of inquiry have already been indentified, most notably:

 

-Creation, Time, Environment

How do artists represent, create and imagine the complex relationships between art, the present, the past and the future, history, social engagement, and the role of human beings within the environment?

 

-Urban or Rural, Populated and Abandoned Territories

How do artists invest urban or rural territories, whether populated or abandoned? What are the actions, installations, and interventions favoured by artists, architects and artist-run centres in order to creatively address our connection to the environment?

 

-Art, Environment, Ethics and Social Engagement

How do artists link art, the environment and ethics? Is environmentally engaged art inherently an act of resistance?

 

-Public Art and Art’s Public

Does art that situates itself in a “non-artistic” environment more effectively reach the public? Is a public that participates in an environmentally-integrated artwork more receptive to the creative process? Do artists favour intervention tactics (parades, demonstrations…) in order to reach a wider public? What kind of art is then in question?

 

PROPOSALS / CATEGORIES

With regards to the four areas we’ve identified above, the RAIQ is looking for proposals that fall into one of the following categories:

 

-Artist Talks and Round Tables

-Deambulations around the Maison de la culture Côte-des-neiges

-Online Correspondence Project

-Interdisciplinary Project on the Patio of the Maison de la culture Côte-des-neiges 

 

For information on how to apply, please go to the website: www.raiq.ca

 

DEADLINE TO RECEIVE PROPOSALS: November 1, 2011 at midnight.

Proposals and additional info by EMAIL ONLY: diffusion@raiq.ca.

Note: Artist fees will be paid in accordance with CARFAC regulations.

  

About the RAIQ: Founded in 2005 by artists and cultural workers within the interdisciplinary arts, the Regroupement des arts interdisciplinaires du Québec (RAIQ) rallies for, and represents, artists, collectives and companies working in or presenting interdisciplinary arts practices. The RAIQ not only works towards the improvement of socio-economic conditions of its members, it also aims to promote all manner of inter-arts work by initiating activities that support research and experimentation such as conferences, events, workshops, professional development sessions and networking activities.

8. EVENT: Performance by Rosa Mesa at Toronto’s aluCine Festival

Dates: November 15-19, 2011; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: aluCine

 

FADO is pleased to co-present a new durational performance work by Rosa Mesa during the aluCine Toronto Latin Film & Media Arts Festival. 

 

Tired of Counting by Rosa Mesa

 

Everything is reduced to money, economy and numbers, so it is life. The repetition, the emptiness invades our understanding of a world that tries to give economical value to everything on it. Since childhood I have a conflict with numbers, they bore me, the abstraction of them moves me away from the real, from what I consider real, from emotions, people, nature, life... In an economical world, everything is tiresome, jobs are transformed in a parody, trapped in this realm man can only count.

 

Rosa Mesa was born in the Canary Islands and immigrated to Toronto in 1995. She attended OCAD and graduated in 2002. Mesa is a multidisplinary artist whose practice extends to installations, performance, video and public interventions. Her work explores areas of semiotics and the art practice, identity, nomadism, migration, feminism and the hybrid and changing state of contemporary culture. She currently lives in Berlin and Las Palmas. Her work has been exhibited in Spain, Canada, Serbia, Corea, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, Brazil, France, Colombia, Venezuela and Cuba.

A BIGGER SCALE OF TOUCH

 

Project Description

A BIGGER SCALE OF TOUCH is a study project within the scenography and acting department (directed by Prof. Serge von Arx and Karmenlara Ely) of the NTA – Norwegian Theatre Academy. It is done in cooperation with PAS – Performance Art Studies, through BBB Johannes Deimling, who is developing and tutoring the project. The period of the studies is from October to December 2011. Focus is the experimental research on time based and long durational performances, and to present the results during the process at different festivals. The work of the students will include approaches from visual art, space/architecture, context, research and social aspects. Including the already gained knowledge about scenography and theatre this project should lead the students to a wider examination of the intersections and the possibilities of a broader artistic language. Besides the artistic work the students are involved in the whole process of developing and organizing this project.

Concept

Time is an enormous phenomenon. While researching the different aspects of it, we found there's research showing that the faster you move the slower you age. Does it mean that you can be so busy in life that you forget to age? Aging as an action. There's also the perspective of forgotten time: "Every time a person dies a library is burned down". The scale of time changes depending on age: when you are younger an hour is a larger percent of your life. Also, we found that the traditional Maya calendar states that time is quickening. We are also interested in the perspective of physics. When Einstein talks about the space-time he states that the past and the future exists just as much as the present. What does it mean that time is space-like? Is it possible for us to understand? 

 

A BIGGER SCALE OF TOUCH is facing this various time-research on an artistic level; because we believe that artistic questions are similar to scientific questions. We hope to find new approaches that could change our perception both in the act of creation and during the act of sharing with an audience. The use of performance art allows us to come closer to the point of a direct experience with our bodies. Performance art includes the time aspect by its nature, and with its ephemeral gesture it leads inevitably to knowledge about time. We use the body as a measure instrument. We explore how the body and the space are influencing each other. The relation between them could be understood as time - time in art as a consequence and a condition of a body in a space. Time allows us to move, to let the relationship develop. Thus for us the body is an essential instrument to investigate time. The intensive use of space within the work with the body will offer a relation to the context, and through this, a cultural aspect. What creates the specificity of a space and how can we use it for articulating something? 

 

The perception of time and the perception as a consequence of time are main issues in our exploration. We ask ourselves: Is it possible to slow down our perception so far that we become pure sensation? This would be one way to look at the expression A bigger scale of touch. Scale is not only about the size of space but also the size of time. Touch is articulation of things we can not explain in words. Like the fascination of the encounter with the unknown, which is threatening, beautiful, inviting... or like when you see the lightning and you wait for the thunder, and when the sound comes it resonates in your body. Sound is a touch of waves on the eardrum. Light is a touch of waves on the eye.

13. CALL FOR PAPERS: Performance Research, Volume 17, No. 5 (October 2012)

Deadline date: December 1, 2011; City: worldwide; Source: Rebecca Curtis

 

'On Duration’

Proposal Deadline: 1st December 2011 (see below for details)

Issue Editor: Edward Scheer

 

On Duration

The idea of duration has always been essential to the experience of performance from the briefest execution of the smallest gesture on a stage to the expansive Ram Lila events in India or Tehching Hsieh’s One Year Performances. Duration often refers to the actual time it takes to do things, like drop a brick onto your foot or nail your arm into a wall (Mike Parr), or cut a star onto your stomach or even to walk the Great Wall of China (Abramovic and Ulay). For performance artists, duration refers to the time it takes to break away from the things that inhibit creativity, empathy and intuition, yet the extent to which any performance develops its object in real time forms the basis of what we might call the durational aesthetic.

 

In recent times, the citational performance forms of postmodernity have constructed a temporality of the eternal return, an endless loop or action replay within which the object's precarious place in the flux of time became key to the aesthetic strategy. We might think of re-enactment in this regard, as a key marker of the postmodern turn in performance art. The time based work of multimedia artists with its renewed emphasis on replay and remix might also constitute a useful example of this notion of temporal circuitry.

 

In performance, duration can mean a specific quantity of time as in a musical rhythm or even in Henri Bergson’s terms, a quality of time, characterised as the absolute time of the lived body, multiple and heterogeneous. This issue will explore the aesthetics of duration in performances which foreground the passage of time in the work and the experience of time for the spectator. ‘On Duration’ intends to develop ways of re-thinking the perceived space/time templates of performance, its modes of presencing, and to suggest different models for its interpretation.

 

Possible Topics:

Forms of Duration

-The chronotopes of performance: Bakhtin and time

-Bergson’s Matter and Memory as a paradigm for thinking about time as real duration

-Time signatures in performance

-The loss of temporality

-Micro-narratives v. durational events

-Inverted and intensified temporalities

 

Real Time Performances

-Happenings, John Cage and the emergence of time based art

-Fluxus and after

-Endurance art: Marina Abramovic, Tehching Hsieh, Mike Parr

-Time is money: Antony Gormley, Martin Creed, Coco Fusco, Santiago Sierra

 

Time Shifting in Video Performance

-Video and the remediation of art and performance traditions

-Re-enactments

-Manipulations and distortions of time: Martin Arnold, Douglas Gordon

 

Temporal Environments and Architectures

-Temporal embodiments of place /the trans-architectural

-Temporary architectures: Diller and Scofidio

-Projections and ‘relational architectures’: Lozano-Hemmer, Krzysztof Wodiczko

 

The volume will gather perspectives from a range of fields, including architecture, sound-art, media-art and a range of performance practices: proposals are invited from any relevant area. The format of Performance Research allows for artists’ pages and other visual representations alongside articles, interviews, documents or reviews.

 

SCHEDULE

-Proposals: 1st December 2011

-First drafts: 8th March 2012

-Final drafts: 1st May 2012

-Publication date: October 2012

 

ALL proposals, submissions and general enquiries should be sent direct to: Becci Curtis

Issue-related enquiries should be directed to the issue editor: Edward Scheer

 

General Guidelines for Submissions

Proposals will be accepted by e-mail (MS-Word or RTF). Proposals should not exceed one A4 side. Please DO NOT send images electronically without prior agreement.

 

Please note that submission of a proposal will be taken to imply that it presents original, unpublished work not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Deadline: December 1, 2011; City: Montréal, Canada; Source: articule

 

PROGRAMMING 2012-2013

DEADLINE: DECEMBER 1, 2011

articule is an artist-run centre dedicated to the dissemination of a broad range of contemporary art practices with a particular interest in social engagement, interdisciplinarity and artistic experimentation. articule supports emerging artists and those who have established important precedents and continue to commit themselves to the ideals of experimentation and risk-taking.

 

articule invites local, national and international artists, groups of artists, curators and all individuals interested in establishing a dialogue within the field of contemporary art to propose projects for its September 2012 to June 2013 programming season. We accept projects and research of diverse nature taking place at the gallery, online, or off site, along with collaborations (between individuals, organizations, institutions, fields of thought...). articule welcomes projects which unfold over timelines differing from the standard 4-week timeframe.

 

Prior to sending a proposal, we invite you to consult our website for current and recent exhibits, our mandate, gallery images and floor plan. articule respects CARFAC standards in payment of artists fees.

 

SPECIAL PROJECTS 2011-2012

Deadline: On-going

For over ten years, articule has been presenting public interventions, live art projects, happenings, new artistic practices, as well as public talks, workshops, video/film screenings, etc. through its special projects programming. This year, we invite artists and people working in other fields to question with us what is undisciplinarity today. How, by example, do we draw the line between art and community or activist projects, between aesthetic, political, scientific, or philosophical research? How are these limits transgressed? Projects can happen at the gallery, online or off site. We are also open to collaborations with other organisations. In order to respond quickly to proposed initiatives, the committee will meet regularly throughout the year to review submissions.

 

Support by articule for special projects can take many forms: promotional and logistic support, access to the center’s equipment, administrative infrastructure, venue, and financial support (up to a maximum of $500). People with an idea they would like to discuss and develop further with the committee are also invited to do so.
