2. FADO Call for Submissions: Misinformed Informants: Emerging Practices Series 2009
 
Misinformed Informants
Curated by Lisa Visser
 
TORONTO and REGIONAL CALL FOR PERFORMANCE PROPOSALS
Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2009 (postmark)
 
With an uncontested authority of communication also comes a loss of more antiquated forms of attraction and distractions: for example, the telegraph, the dial phone, a meaningful touch. Nostalgia for these former arts is maintained in a romanticized thought, where a world of convenience abandons the need for a hand-written letter, expressive and clear, sweetly scented and discreetly passed from the lover to the loved. Rather, instructions on how to make eye contact and intonate clearly, write concise and connected emails, without emoticons, are how we learn communication procedure. What did we lose when we lost the art of communication? How will I know he loves me if he doesn’t write it in a letter? Conversational tone is often mistranslated through the digital media. Though sometimes the process of communication is lost the participants may deduce the correct result. Yet, nothing ensures comprehension and so there is inevitable lost emails, missed phone calls, unreceived text messages, poorly stressed intonations: miscommunications and misinformed informants.
Talking and laughing, body language, facial expressions, huffs and sighs, digital dialogue, instant messaging, translation among languages and generations, silence and deliberate motions, yelling, whispering, texting. 
 
Framework: FADO invites submissions for performance works from emerging or early career artists that speak to modes and moods of communication and miscommunication as a starting point for their work. We encourage both shorter and longer works, durational or multi-day projects.
 
The event and exhibition will take place in Toronto in early December (location and dates to be confirmed). This event will highlight new work by emerging artists. Please remember this is a Toronto and regional call only. We are not able to bring artists in from national or international cities, as much as we would like to. We are looking for work from artists from Toronto and surrounding areas, as well as London, Kingston, Montreal, Ottawa etc. The performance will be introduced in an opening event of the exhibition, with ephemera, debris and documentation on display throughout the week following the performance event.  
 
Submissions must include:
• Artist CV
• A statement describing your practice
• 15-20 jpeg images and/or a 10minute video
• A descriptive list for your images
• Any written documentation to accompany your images
• SASE (packages will not be returned unless this is included)
 
Please contact the curator before sending an email submission. If you are going to send an email submission, it is advisable to send hard copies of the documents as well.
For more information, please contact: Lisa Visser, Curator: visser.lisa@gmail.com

3. EVENT: PAVES at Golden Thread Gallery
Dates: September 3-20, 2009; Source: Sinead O’Donnell
 
Dates: September 3-20, 2009
Opening: 6pm–9pm, Thursday September 3, 2009
Project Space, Golden Thread Gallery 
 
Artists: Poshya Kakl, Anne Bean, Vlasta Delimar, Efi Ben-David, Sinead O’Donnell
 
On the 3rd September the Golden Thread Gallery will launch the Belfast phase of the PAVES project: a collaborative journey that has already taken place in London and Croatia.   Sinead O’Donnell, as Belfast’s PAVES artist, will begin an evolving creative dialogue/exploration in the Project Space in the Golden Thread Gallery on 3rd September and will be joined on the 13th of September by Poshya Kakl, Anne Bean, Vlasta Delimar and Efi Ben-David.  The Project Space will serve as a base and workspace for the collective, while they explore Belfast as a site.  The artists will respond to the city and to each other in many ways: sharing ideas, actions, notations, drawings and all the things that inform their creative process during their time in this city. On the 19th of September, between 1pm and 3pm, the artists will make their presentation and invite the audience to enjoy conversations with the artists about their process and approach.
 
Anne Bean, the initiator of the PAVES project, grew up in Zambia. She and has spent time in Iraq and Croatia and has been struck by the different ways in which recent political upheavals have directly or indirectly informed the work of artists, particularly of certain women. The women in PAVES have all used their bodies in their work to make strong, powerful and passionate works, where the interplay of personal and political meet and have vivid ‘conversations.'
 
Reflecting on how the intense, wider political context inevitably sculpts artists’ work, PAVES is a year-long collaboration between the artists Poshya Kakl, Anne Bean, Vlasta Delimar, Efi Ben-David and Sinead O’Donnell.  PAVES  is supported by the British Council’s Creative Collaboration programme, the Arts Council England and Form Associates. 
 
Timetable of events for PAVES
3rd September, 6pm – 9pm: PAVES launch night.
13–19th September: artists activate the Project Space for this unique process- led project.
19th September: artist’s presentation and conversation.

"we see their work on friday and, on saturday they respond to it"
 
Friday September 11, and Saturday September 12, 2009 @ 9pm
UNIT 102, 46 Noble Street (Queen and Brock)
PWYC (suggested $8, free the 2nd night if you come to both shows)
 
Artists Marcinku Kedzior, Yumi Onose and Lorena Salomé will show work on the 11th and they will respond to this experience the next night.
 
Curator, Claudia Wittmann:
"I imagine that there is some sort of meeting of human material from the artist and from the audience around art pieces and that this generates a brew that can become part of the work. Is it possible to see some of this "brewing"? Is it the same for performance and for other art forms? Will we see the "brewing" if we witness how Marcin, Yumi and Lorena respond to their own work? you should join us.......
 
Bios:
Marcin Kedzior is an experimental dancer, musician and artist who studied art and architecture in England, Italy, China and Canada. He is actively engaged in critical theory groups that expand spatial and design practices, including being on the editorial committee of the journal “Scapegoat”. Kedzior has taught architecture studies at the University of Toronto while doing material improv dance shoes. In each case, his work focuses on resisting the spectacle of the commercial city and affirming alternative forms of social relations and daily life. 
 
Yumi Onose was born in Japan. Yumi’s passion for traveling and learning led her to study painting, sculpture, installation and performance. In 2003, she was invited to be artist in residence and exhibited in Siedlce, Poland. Yumi created a sculptural piece for the contemporary dance piece “Red Cream” as a first collaboration work with Keiko Ninomiya in 2006, and she exhibited “Evolving Forms” with Harvey Chan in 2007. In 2009, she performed in the butoh-based “Something about Gender”, directed by Claudia Wittmann in Toronto.
 
Lorena Salomé was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2003, she moved to Toronto, where she finished her studies in art. Her video work has been presented in Canada, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Germany and the United States. She makes use of different technologies including video, photography, electronics and mechanics, for her artwork. She now lives in Toronto.

8. EVENT: Sun Ra to Sunn O))) – A Blasted History of Noise by Craig Leonard
Date: September 12, 2009; Source: Modern Fuel
 
Craig Leonard performs "Sun Ra to Sunn O))) – A Blasted History of Noise" 
When: Saturday September 12, 2009 at 8pm
Where: Modern Fuel Gallery, 21 Queen St., Kingston ON
 
Craig Leonard’s "Sun Ra to Sunn O))) – A Blasted History of Noise" is an hour-long audio performance presenting over 100 significant noise albums from 1965 to the present. Leonard will masterfully create a flow of 30-second samples from alternating records continuously intersecting across two turntables, working his way chronologically through albums such as Sun Ra's "The Magic City" (1965) to Dave Phillips "They Live" (2009). This idiosyncratic compilation and presentation of noise benchmarks is culled from the artist’s own collection, set at an upper limit of 100 that is daunting but by no means exhaustive. The general criterion is that the records explore sound experimentation, and specifically noise: dissonance, volume, distortion, unpredictability and chaos.
 
Sun Ra to Sunn O))) was first presented in May at the experimental music festival in Halifax called Obey Convention, and it was featured in June as part of an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia called "Sometimes Always,” which explored the fleeting nature of audio technologies. 
 
Craig Leonard’s performance is the third this year in the Vapours series of experimental music concerts at Modern Fuel. Leonard’s performance will be followed by SOLID GOLD, a disco-themed dance party featuring DJ’s LK, Sealegs, and Helen at 10pm. Tickets for the night are $8 in advance, and $10 at the door.
 
 Craig Leonard's art practice is based in research and the recovery of lost histories, often involving meticulous musical archival: His project Gift for the Screamers (2007) involved finding the original members of LA punk band The Screamers to give them handmade vinyl records (the legendary band never released an official album); his installation Amusicology at Mercer Union (2009) meticulously documented connections and crossovers between various bands and their members. Leonard currently teaches Intermedia and Video at NSCAD University, Halifax, Canada.

9. EVENT: Lilith Performance Studio presents Cia Yuan and Kian Jun Xi
Dates: September 15-12, 2009; Source: Lilith Performance Studio
 
Lilith Performance Studio begins this fall with two new performances and one exhibition in collaboration with two of China’s most prominent artists, Cai Yuan and Jian Jun Xi. 
  
Performance: September 5 @ 2pm in the Centre of Malmo
Open Artist Talk: September 9 @ 7pm at Malmö Konsthall (Free entrance)
Performance and exhibition: September 12 @ 7pm at Lilith Performance Studio (Free entrance)
 
Lilith Performance Studio
Bragegatan 15
Malmo, Sweden
 
On Saturday the 5th of September a collective movement will start somewhere in Malmo. This time Cai Yuan and Jian Jun Xi chose Malmo as their starting point, in what they call a social performance. 150 people in all ages will roll car tires through the city centre of Malmo with Lilith Performance Studio as target. The motion through the city becomes an ongoing force, a picture of the unavoidable change. Saturday the 12th of September the second part of the piece will be presented as a full-size video installation of the social performance the weekend before, whilst Cai and Xi inhabit the studio with an additional new performance. 
 
At the Turner Prize exhibition, for which Tracy Emin was being displayed with the installation My Bed at Tate Gallery in London, Cai and Xi passed the guards and wreaked havoc at the hallowed hall of prestigious art institution. They stripped down to their underpants and started to jump on the installation - Tracy’s own bed, stained by fragments of her suicidal depression. They jumped and engaged in a pillow fight during fifteen minutes before being removed by security guards. The artists were blacklisted at Tate, arrested and then released without charge. Two Artists Jump on Tracey Emin’s Bed, resulted in an invitation from Tate one year later and this was to be the first collaborative act by the duo, henceforth known as, Mad For Real. Since then they have done a numbers of noticeable performance and video installations together at several eminent art spaces and institutions around the world.
 
Cai Yuan and Jian Jun Xi’s oeuvre has continually questioned the relationship of power to the individual. Using a position of resistance Cai and Xi have consistently produced work, which is necessarily oppositional yet, the warmth and humour of their work also acts to draw viewers in. Their performance have taken place as radical gesture calling to mind notorious artists of earlier radical art movements but the historical, linguistic and political context of their practice is often related specifically to their origins: China. 
 
Cai Yuan and Jian Jun Xi are born in China in 1956 and 1962. They live and work in the UK since the 1980’s. Cai Yuan is trained in oil painting at Nanjing College of Art, Chelsea College of Art and the Royal College of Art. Jianjun Xi trained at the Central Academy of Applied Arts in Beijing and later at Goldsmiths College. 
 
Lilith Performance Studio is the first combined production studio and arena for visual art performance in Europe. The studio originates new large-scale performances by inviting visual artists to create exceptional performance pieces in a close collaboration with the Studio, from conceptualization to presentation.

Opening: September 17, 5PM
Bain Saint-Michel
5300, Rue Saint-Dominique, Montreal
 
http://www.vivamontreal.org
 
VIVA! Art Action invites you to discover the bustling energy of contemporary action art from here and abroad. This second edition includes more than fifty events—all free—with artists from the Americas, Europe, and Asia undertaking an array of public and participatory interventions, manoeuvres, and performances.. Though it first appeared in the early 20th century, the last ten years have seen a growing interest in these art forms, which have greatly contributed to the performing arts such as dance, theatre and music in addition to expanding the idea of community in artistic practice.
 
Once again, the Bain Saint-Michel will serve as headquarters for the event. In an environment intended to stimulate and encourage encounters and exchanges between artists and the audience, this site will play host to daily performances, conferences, artist talks, communal dinners and parties. VIVA! events will also take place in the streets, within artist-run centres  — each has developed an original programming, and in the surrounding urban spaces.
 
Check the VIVA! web site and blog for details on our programming and to keep on top of the spontaneous events.

17. CALL FOR PAPERS: Re-Defining / Re-Mapping Queer Identities
Deadline date: September 30, 2006; Source: Elia Eliev
 
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
 
“Re-Defining / Re-Mapping Queer Identities”
Chair: Elia Eliev (Geneva University of Art & Design)
Co-Chair: Daniel Barney (Geneva University of Art & Design)
 
From the early 1960’s till the late 1980’s, both artists and researchers have focused on the body as a major site of exploration and theorization in order to challenge issues of gender and sexuality. 
 
Artists such as Ana Mandieta, Orlan, and Robert Mapplethorpe, incorporated and questioned the body in relation to space, (either physical and/or virtual) in order to explore the relationship between the artist and spectator, breaking down the way one may relate to an artwork.  Artists of this period became actively involved in politics, especially for those living within a minority.  
 
The aim of this session is to create a roundtable that will explore and question the many and varied ways in which the (non) representation of queer identities has shifted from the early 1990’s to today in contemporary art.  Moreover, we are interested in the recent strategies and methods used in contemporary art practices (i.e. situated, discursive, interventionist, tactical) in relation to social / cultural codes of representation.  
 
How do today’s artists relate to different structures of space and how do social, economic, political, psychological realms participate in the construction of new sexual identities (drawing from the theories of Doreen Massey). Lastly, we would like to question how these identities interact outside and inside the dominant culture.  
 
Our aim is to create a trans-disciplinary exchange, enabling a confrontation and collaboration of different generations of artist/researchers at an international level, engaging in the conception of new understandings of queer identities through diverse study fields.
 
We are open to contributions of various disciplines (literature studies, film studies, art history, sociology, economy, psychology, geography…).  
 
Please send an abstract of your proposed paper (200-300 words) to: 
Elia Eliev elia.eliev@etu.hesge.ch (Geneva University of Art & Design)

19. CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Know You Got by Tad Hozumi
Date: October 3, 2009; Source: Maiko Tanaka
 
I am looking for enthusiastic participants for a temporary art installation / dance video recording taking place at the Toronto Free Gallery (Located at Lansdowne and Bloor) on October 3rd 2-3pm (may be extended of shifted slightly depending on traffic). The project is a part of the Toronto Free Broadcasting project (http://www.torontofreebroadcasting.net) and will also be a kick-off party for Nuit Blanche taking place later that night.
 
All that is required is a love for soul music and dancing. Dressing up is encouraged.
 
The first 20 participants to register will be paid an honorarium. All particpants will be recognized in the documentation of the work. If you are interested, please RSVP at tadhozumi@yahoo.com, or contact me on facebook by Sept 20th. See below for a detailed description.
 
Thanks,
Tad Hozumi
 
Project Description:
KNOW YOU GOT is half art happening, half straight-up good time. The project turns the gallery from a space for viewing art, into a site where the audiences’ “soul”, or sense of self-expression, becomes encouraged, displayed, and celebrated.
 
The work is inspired by the visual similarity between Marina Abramovic and Ulay’s Imponderabilia, where the pair stood naked at the door of the gallery to direct visitors between their bodies, and Soul Train’s generation-defining line dances, where the gang strut their stuff down an aisle created by rows of dancers.
 
For KNOW YOU GOT, unbeknownst visitors will be greeted by the sound of vintage funk tracks and rows of participants clapping and cheering them as they enter the door of the gallery. The spontaneous reaction of the entrants will be documented and the footage will be edited and broadcasted as a show.
 
By reversing the relationship between the visitors and the artwork, KNOW YOU GOT explores ways of rethinking art and its audience by creating a space for the art viewers / party-goers to release their own emotion and physical creativity, as well as a forum for learning to become funkier together.
 
After the installation portion is complete, there will be a good old-fashioned boogie down with a bar.

20. EVENT: Art Nomade: Rencontre Internationale d’art performance de Chicoutimi 2009 
Dates: October 1-23, 2009: Source: Francis O’Shaughnessy
 
This is with a very pleasure that Le Lobe invite you at Chicoutimi for ART NOMADE, 2nd edition, international meeting of performance art at Saguenay (Canada). Francis O'Shaughnessy has been invited as a curator for this event. The center of artist Le Lobe organizes this event that will take seat mainly in Chicoutimi and others places in the province of Quebec (Canada) between October 1st and 23th 2009. 
 
Le Lobe is an artist-run center whose activities are dedicated to receiving artists in residence.  We aim to be a laboratory for artistic enquiry and experimentations in every field of contemporary visual art. However, we profess a preference for alternative, hybrid and innovative practices and risky projects that give a rise to reflection on the place and modes of the exhibition of arts. We aim to stay flexible. Thus, we like to collaborate in a spontaneous way if we have this opportunity. Le Lobe is also concerned about collaborating and projects that imply young artists.  
 
Art Nomade 2009 will encourage discussion and exchange, focusing on current practice, historical evolution and critics of performance art at Saguenay Lac-St Jean with other guests. Also, for the festival the artists have to respect the thematic the indetermination! 
 
We invite you to come to see the event!
