1. Fado news

Welcome to the "revised" Fado e-list, which is now sent out monthly with calls for submission and other news/information. If you are receiving this list, then you will also receive separate postings about Fado activities. If you wish to receive ONLY Fado events listings, please send an email to info@performanceart indicating your email address with an "events only" message.

We apologize that this first "revised" issue is a bit late getting out. Fado's computer had a major crash while our Performance Art Curator, Paul Couillard, was on tour in Poland. We did managed to coax enough life out of the traveling laptop to successfully present two talks about Fado, one at the Centrum Kultury in Lublin, and another at the Interfaculty Department for Intermedia, Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow -- but major repairs were required upon his return to Toronto that wreaked havoc on office paperwork for a week or two. We are now back on track.

Watch for information on Fado's summer activities, coming soon -- next event: Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa's 100-hour performance "The Sun is Crooked in the Sky; My Father is Thrown over my Shoulders", beginning June 29 at Implant here in Toronto.

If you are interested in participating please send us examples of your work and a maximum 2 page statement detailing why you want to participate, and what and how you feel you can contribute.

Invitation to participate in the Status of the Artist Survey available online at <http://www.macac.on.ca />http://www.macac.on.ca/

Dear Member of the Arts/Culture Community:

The contributions of our artists are part of what makes Ontario such a great place to live, work and visit. Yet, despite their contributions to our society and economy, many face challenges that make it difficult for them to pursue their craft.

The Status of the Artist Sub-Committee of the Minister's Advisory Council for Arts and Culture is responsible for seeking stakeholders' views on potential ways to enhance the social and economic conditions of artists. In fulfilling this important responsibility, the Sub-committee has committed to hearing the views of those directly affected, and developing a report for the Minister of Culture that will be meaningful in recognizing our artists as "cultural treasures."

The Sub-committee is now carrying out a number of outreach activities designed to obtain the community's perspectives on the status of the artist in Ontario. We are pleased to invite you to visit the Council Web site and participate in our Status of the Artist Survey at <http://www.macac.on.ca />http://www.macac.on.ca/. The survey will help the Sub-committee focus its efforts on areas of primary importance to the arts and cultural community.

Please note that if you are interested in participating in future feedback opportunities, you must complete the survey by June 10, 2005. However, the survey will remain online for completion until July 8, 2005.

If you have any questions or require any assistance with the survey, please visit the "Contact Us" section of our Web site at <http://www.macac.on.ca/src/en/contact.aspx>http://www.macac.on.ca/src/en/contact.aspx.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Jim Fleck, Council Chair
Aaron M. Milrad, Sub-Committee Chair

Invitation à participer au Sondage sur le statut de l'artiste disponible en ligne à <http://www.macac.on.ca />http://www.macac.on.ca/

Madame, Monsieur,

Les contributions de nos artistes contribuent à faire de l'Ontario un lieu où il fait bon vivre et travailler et qu'il est agréable de visiter. Cependant, en dépit de leurs contributions à la vie de la société et de l'économie, nombre de ces artistes doivent relever des défis qui font qu'il leur est difficile de s'adonner à leur art.

Le Sous-comité sur le statut de l'artiste du Comité consultatif ministériel pour les arts et la culture est chargé d'obtenir le point de vue des intervenants sur les moyens éventuels d'améliorer les conditions sociales et économiques des artistes. Pour s'acquitter de cette responsabilité importante, le Sous-comité s'est engagé à écouter le point de vue des personnes directement visées et à rédiger un rapport à l'intention de la ministre de la Culture qui permettra de reconnaître que les artistes représentent un « trésor culturel ».

Le Sous-comité a entrepris toute une série d'activités de sensibilisation destinées à obtenir le point de vue de la communauté sur le statut de l'artiste en Ontario. Nous avons le plaisir de vous inviter à visiter le site Web du Comité consultatif et de participer au Sondage sur le statut de l'artiste, à <http://www.macac.on.ca />http://www.macac.on.ca/. Ce sondage permettra au Sous-comité de concentrer ses efforts sur les secteurs qui revêtent une importance particulière aux yeux de la communauté des arts et de la culture.

Veuillez noter que si vous voulez participer à toute rétroaction future, vous devez remplir le sondage d'ici le 10 juin 2005. Cependant, le questionnaire pourra être rempli en ligne jusqu'au 8 juillet 2005.

Si vous avez des questions ou avez besoin d'aide pour remplir le questionnaire, veuillez cliquer sur la section « Pour nous joindre » de notre site Web, à : <http://www.macac.on.ca/src/fr/contact.aspx>http://www.macac.on.ca/src/fr/contact.aspx.

(version française suivante)

DARE-DARE is organizing an international festival from September 29 to October 2, 2005 which will be held on Viger Square in downtown Montreal. The festival will present the works of about twenty artists and the programme will revolve around the site.

The square has had an eventful past, having had numerous tabulæ rasæ followed by a succession of redevelopments: from river and marsh to dump, from bourgeois square to squat and hanging garden/artwork built on top of an underground highway. The current configuration, Agora, was conceived by artist Charles Daudelin (1975, completed in 1983).

For the event, DARE-DARE will be accepting project proposals of all kinds that insert themselves into Viger Square either politically, formally, poetically, etc. The projects may be of specific or of variable duration, or they may also be repeated in time during the festival. The centre seeks interdisciplinary projects that will engage in the social and physical realms of the city, developing various types of public interactions.

The centre also calls for performance pieces to be part of a soirée that will be held on Friday September 30, 2005. The square planning has a stage placed in its centre: a surface (36' x 36') surrounded with water. The actions and performances will be held in this area.

Your submission should include
• A brief statement describing your project,
• a résumé,
• ten slides or digital images (max 5 mpg) numbered with a descriptive list,
• audio/video tape, DVD (NTSC) or Quicktime (max 5 min.),
• and any other document essential to the comprehension of your proposal.
Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope for the return of your documentation. The centre does not accept submissions by email or fax. The centre does pay artist fees corresponding to SODART.

Le square a connu un passé mouvementé marqué par plusieurs tabulæ rasæ suivies de réaménagements successifs: ruisseau, dépotoir, place bourgeoise, tranchée, squat et jardin/œuvre d'art aménagé sur la dalle supérieure de l'autoroute Ville-Marie. L'Agora, l'aménagement actuel, a été conçu par l'artiste Charles Daudelin (1975, complétée en 1983).

Pour l’événement, DARE-DARE recherche des projets de toute nature pouvant s’inscrire de manière politique, formelle, poétique ou autre dans le square Viger. Il peut s’agir d’interventions ponctuelles, de durée variable, ou répétées durant tout le festival.

• un curriculum vitæ,
• dix diapositives ou dix images sur disque compact (max 5 mpg) numérotées et accompagnées d’une description,

8. CALL FOR PROPOSALS: "Art and Activism" YYZ
Deadline: June 30, 2005; Source: YYZ

YYZ ARTISTS’ OUTLET invites contemporary artists, architects, designers, and writers to propose projects in any media for participation in an exhibition and related critical projects that explore, expand, contradict or otherwise address artistic and activist practices. The exhibition, organized by Kym Pruesse, will be presented at YYZ from 14 January 2006 through 25 February 2006.

PREMISE:
This exhibition will look at the role and nature of contemporary artistic practices as activist practices. Through example and sample, the show will provide a specific framework for artists to define their relationship to activism via individual and collective cultural production. Art as Activism and Activism as Art finds its way into the everyday life of the street, the media, our institutions, politics, galleries, and the market. These interventions exemplify the fact that culture is a process, not a product; that art reflects and defines the social, economic, political and cultural conditions of its making. We invite all submissions that address this dense territory through experience, reflection or debate.

Writers, critics, curators, and designers are also encouraged to submit proposals for potential publication in a catalogue, a book on this topic as it relates to Canadian art practice, the YYZine, the web, or as a submission/exploration of the topic in a form/forum appropriate to the context of the issues.

Please submit proposals and relevant support material as outlined in the proposal guidelines at www.yyzartistsoutlet.org/submission.asp to «YYZ: ACTIVISM» by 30 June 2005. This will be a group exhibition so space will be limited.

YYZ Artists’ Outlet is an artist-run centre that supports the work of local, national and international contemporary artists in all media by providing a dedicated venue and supportive programming infrastructure for the public exhibition of contemporary art.

9. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: "A Trilogy of Fundamental Things in Life," A Space
Deadline July 15, 2005; Source:A Space

A Space Gallery is currently accepting submissions to our Main Gallery for exhibitions in the 2007 programming season. Artists, curators and collectives are invited to submit projects with an explanation of their relationship to one or a combination of three distinct thematic issues: marriage, employment and immigration/migration. The nature of marriage and love, work and occupation, home and belonging, recur in a variety of situations that affect everyday people in their daily lives, but also impact on broader issues related to social justice and the global economy. We are inviting artists to reconsider some of life&Mac226;s fundamentals through thought-provoking, evocative, and daring art projects that consider positive and challenging futures in the light of these issues.

To Have and To Hold: Institution of Marriage:

Different groups see different agendas for contemporary marriage.  Does contemporary art have anything to contribute to current debates about the meaning, value and definition of marriage? Possible Topics: Same-sex marriage issues, the current „family values‰ backlash, arranged marriage, mail order brides, „desperate housewives‰, the spectacle of marriage for entertainment, polygamy, child-brides, loveless arrangements, trafficked women, spousal abuse, inter-racial marriage, astronomical divorce rates.

Wandering Worlds: Immigration, Migration and Exile:

Given the complexity and pace of global change, and the growing stakes for Canadians in international politics, trade, immigration, security and the environment, we invite artists to explore the multitude of ways that our world and ourselves are shaped by the history and experiences of immigration, migration and exile across any and all continents, oceans, nations, and communities. Possible Topics: Lesbian and gay immigration rights, gender and migration, marginalization through political and cultural isolation, arrival and departure, home and homesickness, longing and belonging, racelessness and cyber-space, nomadic subjectivity, hybridity, transculturalism, border spaces.


Walls and Oceans: Employment, Migration and Resistance:

Recent studies have established that immigrants that arrived in the last ten years are settling with greater disadvantages than previous immigrant arrivals in Canada. Invariably, this also applies to practicing artists throughout the country.  What are the various realities regarding issues of employment? Possible Topics: The feminization of low-wage labor, the cross-border sex-worker, urban segregation and development, migrant domestic workers, the „ethnic‰ artist and under-representation.

All submissions must include:
-CV(s)
-One page project description, specifying spatial and technical needs
-One page Artist or Curatorial Statement
-Support material: slides &Mac246; max. 10 or digital images on CD, clearly identified
-max. of one VHS tape or one DVD, clearly identified
-Descriptive list for visual material (title, date, dimension, medium)
-SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) - Please ensure correct postage.

A Space welcomes all voices on these topics and encourages cross-cultural and multidisciplinary proposals from local, national as well as international artists and curators.  Proposals, whose topics address diversity issues, especially those affecting persons of minority ethnicity and other underrepresented populations, are especially encouraged to submit work.  A Space is not responsible for lost or damaged submissions. Do not send original slides, artwork or master tapes.

Please send your proposal by July 15th to:

A Space Gallery
401 Richmond Street West, Suite 110, Toronto, ON, M5V 3A8

Please note that email applications are not accepted.

10. CALL FOR PAPERS: "The body/technology–instrument/technology paradigm",
Contemporary Music Review
Deadline: July 31, 2005; Source: visionandsound@yahoogroups.com

We invite papers from writers reflecting on sound in relation to the body/technology; from anyone who attempts to define and/or critically examine threshold conditions of instrument and performer; writers who are keen to challenge con- or discontinuities of instrument and performer, be it in the form of laptop improvisation, interactive sound environments, 3d cave installations, sonic architecture, or other performance situations.

In an era in which technology has impacted immensely on ways in which instrumental music is being performed, indeed in which the role of the instrument, if not notions of the instrument itself, have become radically altered, we want to examine the instrument’s position as well as the role of the performer.

The body/technology – instrument/technology coupling or decoupling is something that can be, and needs to be explored from various angles. Such discussion invariably leads us to think about what we consider an instrument to be in technologically mediated environments, in particular if we keep in mind that the word’s origin suggests notions of “instruction” (from Latin: instruere): who instructs or who/what is instructed by whom?

• Do we see the instrument as extension, retraction or subversion of the body?

• Is the instrument one that brings the body into existence, or one that denies bodily existence?

• What are the implications of technological environments on the instrument-performer relation?

• Does the body become re-figured and re-inscribed by technology?

These are only a few of the questions that may arise; other exploratory paths that elucidate aspects of the body/technology–instrument/technology paradigms are highly encouraged.

For this discussion papers may rejoice in the liminal, the erotic, or the incestuous, they may celebrate touch, if not the self-touch, and may move beyond notions of the instrument as extension of the body in performance.

Papers from disciplines as varied as music, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, biology, informatics or architecture will be of interest.

Abstracts of around 300 words should be sent to the guest editor by the 31st of July 2005.

Full papers will be due at the end of September 2005.

Please note: Papers are accepted only in English.

Submission of a paper to this journal will be taken to imply that it represents original work not previously published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication, and that if accepted for publication it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in any language, without the consent of the editors and publishers.

All queries should be directed to:

12. CALL FOR ENTRY: "CULT OF SPEED... MEET THE SLOW MOVEMENT", Toronto Free Gallery
Deadline: August 17, 2005; Source: Toronto Free Gallery

Toronto Free Gallery is a not-for-profit art space that opened this September. Our vision is to provide a forum for relevant social and cultural issues expressed through all media. Toronto Free Gallery is intended to be a creative laboratory. We aim to provide artists with a space to experiment, explore new ideas, question norms and challenge both themselves and their audiences.

There is more to life than increasing its speed
-Ghandi

There is a growing international movement that says by taking some of the speed out of modern life, we can live better as a result. These days, our culture teaches us that faster is better. But in the race to keep up, everything suffers - our world, diet and health, our relationships and sex lives. We are in such a hurry that anyone or anything that slows us down, becomes the enemy.

For this exhibition we are interested in challenging the cult of speed. Is slow really better? And if so how do we slow down?

Currently, we are accepting proposals that address these ideas and explore the clash between fast cultures and the cry for slow.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS AUGUST 17
The exhibition will take place February- March 2006

Proposals can be sent via post to:
660 Queen Street East
Toronto ON m4m 1g5

Or by email to:
heather@torontofreegallery.org

15. NEWS: "CANuniversity" Community Arts Network website (USA)
Source: APInews #70

This month, Art in the Public Interest presents a new feature on the CAN Web site: CANuniversity. It's a multifaceted resource for people involved in or interested in community-arts training.

link: <<http://www.communityarts.net/canu />http://www.communityarts.net/canu />

In talking with our colleagues over the last ten years, we've learned that one thing they are all concerned about is training the new generation of practitioners. Another thing they talk about is the need to "credential" community arts as a valid arts practice. These conversations led us to think about what's happening in higher education, so the first thing we did was create "Places To Study," a database of college and university courses in degree and nondegree programs, plus internships, fellowships, apprenticeships, certificate programs, workshops and institutes. We thought this would encourage curious students to think about studying community arts, and then help them find the kinds of programs they are looking for. We also hoped it would link the teachers and administrators across the globe who are starting programs in the field. We were excited when these two things began to happen. People who used "Places To Study" wrote to tell us they had found what they needed.

Then they wrote back to say that exciting things were happening in their programs and asked if they could share their stories on CAN. We began to publish these essays by students and teachers, and now we have a portfolio of more than a dozen stories about unique college courses, university-community partnerships and summer training institutes in Arizona, Texas, Maryland, North Carolina, Illinois, Wisconsin, New York and California. These include my two in-depth profiles of programs at Columbia College Chicago and NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

We began to hear from teachers that they were using CAN's Web site in their classes, assigning reading and directing students to use our forums and databases. To give us an idea of what they were finding useful, we asked for a few of their syllabi. So many teachers were writing us about their news that we decided to start an e-mail listerv for them, and the CANuniversity list was born a year ago. As of today, we have 111 members and 282 messages.

Finally, the whole CANu universe came together under one banner, and debuts as a special resource on the Web site this month. Visit the project home page to see what's there. The project is open-ended and will continue to grow, possibly generating CAN textbook publications and CAN training courses online. We hope you will join the listerv, send us your syllabi and your reading lists and consider writing about the special projects in your learning communities. Join us. Together we can build this field.

Mammalian Diving Reflex's socialcapital presents an evening of questions and answers.
Music by Porcupine.
9pm Thursday June 9, 2005; pwyc
Buddies in Bad Times, 12 Alexander Street
Information: Erika at BIBT - 416 975 9130 / Naomi at MDR - 416 703 5491

socialcapital is Mammalian Diving Reflex's ongoing initiative that attempts to straddle the ground between art, life, stripped-down research, experimentation, discussion, and artistic forms which remain off the radar of theatre and performance; it is an umbrella for a range of activities. Past projects have included The Talking Creature - a participatory experiment proving the generosity of the social sphere that was presented in Toronto, Peterborough, Edinburgh, Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary; and The Toronto Strategy Meetings - a long-term project proving the value of self-responsibility as a social act and the power of the social sphere as a catalyst for personal aspirations. Upcoming Project: Haircuts by Children - free haircuts provided by children age 8-12.

17. EVENT CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: "Agency for Performance-Art at the LISTE&Mac226;05" (Switzerland)
June 14 - 19, 2005; Source: Agentur für Performance Kunst

For the duration of the LISTE&Mac226;05 (14.-19. June) in Basle, an Agency for Performance Art will open its doors Performance space Kaskadenkondensator (www.kasko.ch). You are cordially invited to attend and participate.

What is it about?
Performance art has an ambivalent position on the art-market and in the financing structures of public and private grant-giving institutions. As hybrid culture it cannot be reduced to any fixed form. The Agency examines existing strategies of marketing, sale and publicizing performance art. How can performance art be classified, which forms are financed, what is bought, sold and brokered? These and similar questions are to be discussed in individual sessions (approx. 30 mins.) the Agency's own agents. Succinct excerpts from these will be selected and made public in form of a documentation presented in the Agency. Subsequent to the discussions, all participating artist will have the opportunity of presenting themselves in a 60-second sequence. This will be videotaped (without sound) and will be played back during the fair in the Kaskadenkondensator.

Whom are we addressing?
You.

What are our goals?
To ask questions? The Agency will take a snapshot of the marketing and financing strategies in the performance art world during the fair. Together with the artists we will discuss and question the situation of performance art on the art market. The questions will be collected and together with the videotaped presentation will be made publicly accessible on the internet and remain in existence beyond the art fair.

We kindly ask you to reply to this mail (agentur_performance@gmx.net) indicating interest.
We look forward to stimulating conversations!

In order to plan and organize the discussions on Monday 13. June 2005 during the professional preview from 13.00-17.00 and the subsequent anniversary opening, we kindly ask you to reply and notify us of your interest in participating. Please reply to: agentur_performance@gmx.net.

Deadline: ongoing; Source: Helen Pfann

"TEST is a bimonthly performance art event giving students and established artists the opportunity to perform new works alongside one another in a public space in Boston, MA.

TEST was conceived as having the following goals: to strengthen the performance art community and to foster awareness and understanding of an often-misunderstood medium. We feel that we can achieve these goals by staging regular performance art events which showcase the work of students, emerging, and established artists, and also are free and open to the public."
