Participants will also be expected to organize short public presentations in each city.

Projects
Each participant is expected to produce an individual or collaborative project; the final form of the project, and where it is presented, is decided by each participant in dialogue with their personal advisor, who he or she has chosen.

Collaborators
Collaborators with CuratorLab for 2006/2007 are Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center in Istanbul and its director Vasif Kortun, Centre Culturel Suedois in Paris, Moderna Museet and its curator John Peter Nilsson and Bonniers Konsthall and its director Sara Arrhenius in Stockholm.

6. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: "condo BOOM"
Deadline:June 15, 2006; Source: Multistory Complex

Multistory Complex and The Theatre Centre present

"condo BOOM! The rise of presentation centres and other outposts of lifestyle"
An exhibit exploring the marketing, development and impact of condominium developments
September 14-October 1, 2006 at The Theatre Centre

Condo presentation centres have cropped up all over the Toronto landscape. These temporary model suites are the contemporary pioneer outposts, pushing the frontier of gentrification. They are used to sell condos not as homes but as lifestyles. This project aims to appropriate the form and function of the presentation centre to re-present images of home and existing lifestyles in the city. It aims to expose the marketing and development of condominiums, opening both to interrogation and action. The project asks; what is home? How is it constructed? Is home a lifestyle or a right? Who's building these condo homes? Who are they for? And what's the impact of condos on existing neighbourhoods?

The exhibit's Presentation Centre is mobile, enabling it to be used as a tool within and across neighbourhoods for planning education, interrogation and intervention related to condo developments. It is the goal to link critical engagement in the planning process across local boundaries and encourage greater participation in the planning process.

Expression of interest deadline: June 15, 2006

All disciplines and mediums are welcome. Please include in your expression of interest:

- a statement about your work, including its relevance to the theme of the exhibit
- a description of your work, including physical dimensions and technical requirements
- images of the work if possible (slides, cd, jpegs/website)
- a resume and/or short bio
- a stamped self-addressed envelope if you want materials returned

We encourage submissions that critically address issues of urban development, specifically condo developments and housing, through thought-provoking, engaging means.

Jury selections will be announced July 1, 2006

The competition will be juried by Multistory Complex.

Submission deadline: August 20, 2006

Send your questions, thoughts, expressions of interest and submissions to:
Multistory Complex

About us:

We use research, education and other tactics to expose and highlight the urban environment, from large scale redevelopments to everyday life, rendering it open to investigation and intervention. We aim to democratize planning discourse and practice, introducing new perspectives, approaches and plans. We work with humour, curiosity, imagination and radicalism towards an urban movement founded on social and environmental justice.

11. INVITATION to ARTISTS; "Duckie's EuroShame 2006" (UK)
Deadline: not indicated; Source: Artsadmin E-digest 216

Duckie is inviting artists to collaborate on their annual Gay Shame event, this year titled EuroShame 2006 at the Coronet in London on Saturday 1st July.

We are returning to the holding form we invented for Gay Shame 2004. It is set up as an indoor fairground or market place with artists running individual ‘stalls’ in the venue. This set is designed by Robin Whitmore and will house booth type spaces of various sizes for each artists installation.  

The brief is for artists to invent an interactive activity that audience members can participate in. The theme is EuroShame. Each artist is asked to choose a European country to theme their installation around.

The mood of the project is playful, satirical and light hearted. The installations should contain some sort of audience interaction that is ideally quick and inventive.

Even though the event is called Gay Shame, and most of the punters are homos, the installations do not have to be about sexuality - and, as always, straight as well as gay artists are very much encouraged to work on the event. Mixed bills are always the best for Duckie.

CONTACT: If you are keen to explore the idea call Simon Casson for a chat on
020 7737 4043 or email simon@duckie.co.uk.

Deadline: May 15, 2006; Source: Franklin Furnace

Performance Studies international #12: Performing Rights, Queen Mary, University of London, June 2006.

The Performing Rights Library is a body of materials, documentation and evidence that aims to archive the remains of performance-related interventions, as well as to stimulate performance and human rights experimentation. An experimental model of the Performing Rights Library is being set up in June 2006 as part of Performance Studies international (PSi) #12: Performing Rights, a four-day conference and accompanying programme of live events. The event is organized by Queen Mary, University of London, in partnership with the Live Art Development Agency (UK) and East End Collaborations.

The Performing Rights Library will be developed into a resource that will tour to international locations, as a roving archive and educational resource. The project looks at the significance of human rights in a time of war and globalisation, makes links between international and local communities, and tests innovative practices that might facilitate human rights work. The library will create a network between academics, artists, and activists involved in the intersections between performance and human rights work.

Practitioners are invited to submit materials that explore the relations between performance practices and human rights, for inclusion in the project. Submissions might include photocopies of articles, publications, videos, DVDs, CD ROMs, brochures, posters, links to digital and web-based initiatives, or real and virtual archives. All submissions will be fully acknowledged and accredited within the Library, and contributors should provide full details on submission (or advise otherwise).

16. EVENT: "Liver" butoh performance
June 2 - 4, 2006; Source: Claudia Wittman

Liver
Butoh performance by Claudia Wittmann
Created and performed with sound artist Jeff Luciani, lighting designer Chad Dembski, set designer Tina Giovinazzo and dramaturge Paul Couillard

Xpace
303 Augusta Ave.

Friday, June 2, 8 pm
Saturday, June 3, 8 pm
Sunday June 4, 6 pm

$16 general admission
$12 CADA-students-seniors

"Liver" is about habits our body repeat over and over in order to cope with our vulnerability, in order to hide it, to become blind to it. When we are blind, it is somehow as if we had lost some freedom, as if our mind were sticking to this vulnerability instead of seeing it. We cannot even see how beautiful, tender and human it is. With "Liver", I expose some of my habits to an audience. I go as close as my mind can. I listen, I follow, I move, I try to look. I use my butoh skills and tools borrowed from the experimental theatre of Jerzy Grotowski.

bio
I was born in Switzerland. I have a background in molecular biology and in the philosophy of science. I am interested in body memory and I am a butoh performer. I have studied butoh mainly with SU-EN for whom I performed, in Stockholm, in 2002, 2003 and 2005. SU-EN is one of the few female second generation butoh masters. I am currently working with Paul Couillard, with techniques established by Polish experimental theatre researcher Jerzy Grotowski. Over the last five years I have also been taught by Yoshioka Yumiko (D), Nakajima Natsu (Japan), Waguri Yukio (Japan), Osanai Mari (Japan), Jocelyne Montpetit (Montréal) and Paul Ibey (UK), and I was introduced to movement improvisation by Rebecca Todd, Susanna Hood, Dawne Carleton, Lisa Nelson (USA) and Nina Martin (USA).

I started to show my own performance material in Toronto in 2003. "Assay" presented at the Shared Habitat2 festival dealt with the body memories of the laboratory scientist I was. "Sea-Watching C" co-created with Mari Osanai tapped into body memories of being at sea. "Workday of the disorganized body" presented in the Natural Light Window gallery in 2004 was a 6-hour piece dedicated to simply being present with my kinesthetic sense. "Grey" performed with Hiroshi K. Miyamoto in December 2005 was experimenting with the preparation of the performer. I have also done work for "Economies of Scale", a video by Brenda Goldstein.
