2. NEW: Changes to Canadian Copyright Law for Photographers

Effective: November 7, 2012; City: Canada: Source: CAPIC

 

A big win for photographers in Canada: as of today, you now officially own the copyright to all your photographs regardless of whether they were commissioned. The development comes as a result of Canada major copyright reform bill (Bill C-11) taking effect this morning. One of the stated goals of the new copyright law is to, “give photographers the same rights as other creators.”

 

In an email just sent out to member photographers, Canadian Association of Professional Image Creators (CAPIC) copyright head André Cornellier writes,

 

“The principle of protecting photographers’ ownership rights started 65 years ago by Henri Cartier-Bresson, who founded Magnum with Robert Capa and David Seymour. Magnum assured that a photographer’s image belonged to the photographer and not to the commissioner of the work.

 

In Canada, all other artists have already owned the copyrights to their work and thanks to this new law, Canadian photographers, albeit the last in the industrialized world, now have all legal rights to their images.”

 

Previously, photographers were not automatically the first owners of their photographs when shooting commissioned work, but instead it was the individuals or businesses that commissioned the images who owned the copyrights. Section 13(2) of the Canadian Copyright Act specifically singled out photography as being different than other creative works.

 

Photographers who wanted to own the full copyrights of their work were required to have the transfer explicitly agreed upon in a written and signed contract.

4. EVENT: Whippersnapper Gallery presents Points of Access

Date: November 10-29, 2012; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: Maggie Flynn

 

POINTS OF ACCESS

November 10-29, 2012

Curated by Maggie Flynn for Whippersnapper Gallery

 

Eshan Rafi

David Yu

Erica Brisson

Tamara Platissa & Sasa Rajsic

 

Points of Access is a series of off-site projects dealing with relationships of inclusion, participation, and permeability.

 

Getting to the point…

To talk about accessibility is to acknowledge who is being included, and who is being left out. The Points of Access series looks critically at different understandings of accessibility. Artists Erica Brisson, David Yu, Eshan Rafi, Tamara Platisa and Sasa Rajsic create scenarios in which viewers and/or participants animate relationships of inclusion/exclusion, participation, and permeability. Through these relationships, the artworks in the series address the idea of “access” in relation to political borders, queer and racialized communities, civil discourse, and public space. The Point of Access series also responds to the limitations of conventional art audiences. The entry points for the works – street interventions and person-to-person conversations – actively engage audiences beyond the art community. These are concrete alternatives for the relationship between art and audience.

CAFKA: Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener+Area

Tuesday November 20, 2012, 7pm

Kitchener City Hall, 200 King Street West, Kitchener

FREE admission

 

For more information: www.cafka.org/lectures

Contact: cafka@cafka.org

519-744-5123

 

Musagetes and CAFKA (Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area) are pleased to announce that Rebecca Belmore will be speaking as part of the Big Ideas in Art & Culture Lecture Series. The lecture will take place in the Kitchener City Hall Rotunda on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 7 p.m. The lecture is wheelchair accessible and admission is free.

Rebecca Belmore is an internationally recognized Anishinabe artist whose work draws on history, place, identity and justice through sculpture, installation, video and performance. She has an extensive resume of exhibitions and honours, which includes being Canada’s official representative at the 2005 Venice Biennale as well as having been awarded an honorary doctorate from the Ontario College of Art and Design in that same year. She has recently been commissioned by La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario and Musagetes to undertake a research and production residency this fall and spring in Sudbury, Ontario.

“My way of working is largely based on immediate experience,” Belmore has written. “The performances I have created over the years often directly responded to the place in which I found myself. Location and memory are key elements in my approach to making art. I have always had a strong interest in trying to imagine where we have been.”

Born in Upsala, Ontario, Rebecca Belmore attended the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. In 1993 she moved from Toronto back to her family’s home territory in the Sioux Lookout area of Ontario, marking the beginning of an intense search to gather knowledge of the land, the language and the history of the Anishinabe people that she felt she’d missed. Rebecca Belmore currently lives and works in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

There will be a complimentary shuttle from downtown Guelph to Kitchener for the lecture, departing from 193 Woolwich St. (Macquarie House) at 6 PM. Seats will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact Danica Evering at danica@musagetes.ca or call 519-836-7300 x 103 to reserve your seat, or visit rebeccabelmorebus.eventbrite.com

10. WORKSHOP: PASproject: Cosmonaut 100
Date: November 22-26, 2012; City: Madrid, Spain; Source: BBB Johannes Deimling

We are happy to introduce you to our new PASproject series called Cosmonaut, presented in cooperation with Accion!MAD (curated by Nieces Correá).

 

Invited artists are Kirsten Heshusius [es], Björn Neukom [ch], Ida Grimsgaard [no], BBB Johannes Deimling [de/no] and Marcel Sparmann [de]
 
We are questioning the contemporary language of Performance Art, like Marco Polo and Yuri Gagarin questioned philosophical and physical principals in their times. Why nowadays Performance Art is using only techniques to extend the form instead of an honest search for an adequate language which points into the future? How can we create a dialogue which suits to the human relations even in the next century? From where comes our blind trust in Performance Art history and why don’t we start to be radical in questioning the profound basic of time, space and body?      
 
Cosmonaut is a new project series created by PAS| Performance Art Studies. An attempt to connect an experimental and intuitive approach in articulation with the international Performance Art scene. Therefore Cosmonaut could be understood as a search for a shared thinking what is not immediately visible, but navigates in the space of possibilities. Based on contemporary approaches situated in stage design, referring to cinematic elements, based on light and sound or researching in alternative narratives, this project series aims to progressively and holistically shape the complex object of nowadays Performance Art.
 
Cosmonaut could be an aesthetic and cultural exploratory direction. It should be open to every form of creative articulation connected to the idea that Performance Art is the most relevant and innovative form of the arts to transmit life in an artistic process.


From now on you can order the new application form for the PAStudies program 2013 under pas@bbbjohannesdeimling.de

11. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Under New Management (Artists videos)

Deadline: immediately; City: Dawson City, Yukon; Source: Facebook

 

Seeking video work for a curated project by Suzanne Carte & Su-Ying Lee (Under New Management) taking place in March 2013 at ODD Gallery at the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC) in Dawson City, Yukon. The exhibition will take the form of a video rental store that carries artists’ videos. The project employs the characteristics of the retail environment to connect to the local community while, challenging the gallery’s role as an intermediary that delimits the viewer’s direct access to art. “Customers” are asked to pay what they wish, which can be interpreted as cash, a non-monetary exchange, critique, or no remuneration. This facet is in place as an experimental form of engagement, where artists have the opportunity to receive responses directly from viewers. In turn, the viewer has an uncommon channel to the artist. In addition to payment, rental and return are also on an honour-system basis therefore removing barriers that exist due to membership, deposit, and return policies at commercial ventures.

 

Background

This is the second iteration of the Under New Management video “rental” store. As part of a larger exhibition/project, the first store took place in Toronto from August 3-14, 2010. This method of disseminating video art to the general public was exceptionally popular during its short run.

 

For information about the project visit:

www.mediafieldsjournal.org/storage/issue1/Hogan/Media-Fields-1-Hogan.pdf

www.thestar.com/entertainment/article/839799--queen-west-has-a-surprise- in-store

 

Terms

Your DVD will be loaned to anyone who wishes to borrow it. Customers will pay whatever they wish and any fee collected for your work will be sent to you. The video will be archived in the Video Store Rental collection for future exhibitions.

14. CALL FOR PAPERS: Performance in/and the Street

Deadline: December 15, 2012; City: Toronto, Canada: Source: York University

 

CALL FOR PAPERS: Performance in/and the Street

A Graduate Symposium at York University, 26 April 2013.

Toronto, Ontario

 

The Second Annual York University Department of Theatre Graduate Symposium on

Theatre and Performance in/and Canada

 

Performance in/and the Street

In recent years, with the popularity of such global movements as Occupy and SlutWalk, the issue of public protest and performance has been at the forefront of debates about how we engage with and in public spaces. This symposium will take up the issue of street performance/performing the streets in light of these recent phenomena. Jan Cohen-Cruz defines street performances as ones which "take place in public by-ways with minimal constraints of access." With this definition of open access in mind, we hope to problematize issues surrounding the relationship between public and private space via examples of both activist and commercial street performances and other public acts of social engagement on the streets.

 

This symposium is guided by a number of questions, including: How is the digital expanding our understanding of street and public performance? How has/does street performance relate to political, social and environmental change? In what ways are public and private spaces contested via street performance? How can/have street performances both reinscribe(d) and challenge(d) nationalistic sentiments? How does street performance take up the issue of globalisation? What tactics and practices are common to street performances? How have tactics been updated and altered through continued street performance interventions?

15. EVENT / SAFE THE DATE: 1° Venice International Performance Art Week

Date: December 8-15, 2012; City: Venice, Italy; Source: VestAndPage

 

December 8-15, 2012

Palazzo Bembo, Riva del Carbon

San Marco 4793, Venice, Italy 

 

VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK is a live art exhibition project dedicated to contemporary Performance Art showcasing 31 Performance artists from around the globe. The exhibition consists of a vibrant program of live performances, installations, photographic and video documentation, as well as daily artist talks and presentations. 

 

Performance art pioneers such as Yoko Ono, VALIE EXPORT, Jan Fabre, Hermann Nitsch, Jill Orr, Lee Wen, Gonzalo Rabanal and Boris Nieslony will showcase in an international, eclectic mix together with emerging artists. 

 

Performance art is a discipline that is - first and foremost - life in itself. It doesn't represent or portray, but used to awaken the mind and investigate cutting edge ideas in different fields of human activity. It analyses how and why people and their surroundings evolve or devolve, therefore generating reflection. 

 

The VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK in its first edition explores, under the topic “Hybrid Body – Poetic Body”, concepts such as interconnectivity, empathy, struggle, love, political habits and sociability, and how the Self relates to them. Two-way communication between the artists and the audience is key, and some of the strongest themes to emerge during this week will relate to living with more care and creating mechanisms for positive change.
