"What Can't Be Cured Must Be Endured"
Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: Rutgers University - Paul Robeson Galleries
Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, the history of western art has been littered with depictions of medicine and healing—a topic which continues to inspire artists to this day. This exhibition explores the artistic representation of the frailty of the human form, when all is not well and how people have coped. Traditional western discourses generally focus on the detection of damage or illness in the body, the diagnosis, and the application of relevant treatments, hopefully cures and recovery. Other approaches may explore ideas of ritualistic or spiritual responses to the notion of illness, remedies outside the mainstream, and interventions to prevent illness. Artists whose work explores ideas about medicine and healing are encouraged to submit proposals for an exhibition that encompasses a broad array of responses to these themes. Exhibition will be on display October 2012 – January 2013.

Curatorial Programme 2012/2013
Curating in the expanded field
January 16, 2012 (arrival date)
de Appel arts centre, Amsterdam
Share this announcement on: Facebook | Delicious | Twitter
"There is an abc-ignorance that precedes knowledge, and there is another learned ignorance that comes after and that is created through 'knowing' and that will equally like the first be annihilated and annulled by knowledge."
Michel de Montaigne 
Initiated in 1994, the Curatorial Programme of de Appel arts centre aims to offer young curators a condensed package of experiences and skills that can be seen as instruments to enhance the development of their professional career.
The curriculum revolves around theoretical issues in regular sessions with a tutorial team consisting of
Floris Alkemade (architect,NL), Liesbeth Bik (visual artist, NL), Ann Demeester (director de Appel arts centre, BE/NL), Charles Esche (director Van Abbe Museum, UK/NL), Annie Fletcher (curator, IR/NL), Elena Filipovic (curator/writer, US/BE), Ann Goldstein (director Stedelijk museum), Henk Slager (philosopher/curator, NL), Lisette Smits (independent researcher/curator, NL), Jan Verwoert (art critic, DE)
The eight-month long Curatorial Programme exists in its current form since 2006, with a reshaped curriculum and an extended tutorial team. It encompasses a dense array of seminars, workshops, excursions (including a three-week research trip to a destination outside Western Europe), practice-related assignments and encounters with artists and art professionals.
Additionally the programme offers
- The opportunity to get acquainted with de Appel arts centre from 'the inside', and get a better insight into the mechanisms and governing principles of a contemporary institution for visual arts.
- The possibility to make a research trip outside of Western Europe and a minimum of 5 field trips, within Europe.
- The opportunity to meet and have an exchange with a large number of artists, curators, critics and other international professionals through thematic seminars and informal encounters. Guest teachers over the past years have been e.g. Claire Bishop, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Gerardo Mosquera, Paul O'Neill, Paulo Herkenhoff, Jacques Rancière, Simon Sheikh, Pier Luigi Tazzi, Jan Hoet, Teresa Gleadowe, Tirdad Zolghadr, Ulay and Nina Möntmann.
The programme pays attention to the history of exhibition-making, diverse curatorial practices, institution building and project management. The programme is characterized by a specific focus on 'curating in the expanded field', which is investigated through the polarity between 'free-lance' and 'institutional' curating and the notion 'context-responsive' curating.
1. A letter of motivation in which you state your personal drive as well as your expectations of the programme.
2. A proposal for a project (maximum 4000 words, approx 8 pages A4) including: concept and location of the project (main focus, explanation of context and relevance), the participating artists (including some image material), a realistic budget, a publicity plan (not obliged).
3. A CV, including an extensive description of your relevant working experience
4. Two written references of (former) tutors, professors or employers, in English.
On the basis of the submitted documents twelve candidates will be short-listed. These candidates will be invited to come to Amsterdam in the second week of March for an interview with an international jury, who will select the final six participants of the Curatorial Programme 2012/2013.

Utopia? call for submissions
Normal 0 Normal 0
Studio 27 is looking for short videos and films for our next program at the Big Muddy Film Festival 34 at Southern Illinois University. We are curating a special out-of-competition screening titled "Utopia?" For this program, we are seeking experimental films and videos (under 30 minutes) that critique or express a fundamental shift in the trajectory of contemporary utopian thought and practice. We are interested in work that explores how utopia, as a projection of what is possible in the future, can be an implicit critique of what is lacking in the present, an indication of how far we have to go to achieve an ideal society. As the notion of dystopia is integrally connected to utopia, we also welcome work that is dystopic in nature. How do the limitations and contradictions of the present drive us toward escape or change? Another timely concern is how utopia is not necessarily a physical or geographic space. Rather, it can be an internal space, a transformation of individual or social consciousness. How does the hope for radical social transformation haunt contemporary media art, and how does the utopian work of the historical avant-garde speak to present day aspirations?
For the purpose of this program, we will only consider work that is experimental in nature, or radically pushes the formal or conceptual boundaries of its genre. Please send us a prescreening copy of your work on playable DVD (or provide us a URL where we can stream or download a high quality preview). All submissions must include a brief project synopsis, artist statement, and contact information (email address, phone number).

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS:CENTERING THE MARGIN
Curated by: Anthony Ryan
Deadline for Submission: Tuesday, January 17, 2012
Exhibition Dates: March 7-24, 2012
Root Division invites artists working in all genres to submit work for an exhibition entitled Centering the Margin.
Centering the Margin is an artist-curated project focusing on artwork that concerns itself with spaces, events, and artifacts that exist just outside of our field of vision and attention. If our contemporary existence is marked by a focus on spectacle and constant stimulation, then Centering the Margin is a show that documents those things that fall outside this focus. These are things that require a change of speed or shift in focus to perceive them.
This show hopes to draw connections between artists concerned with margins, edges and interstitial spaces through diverse approaches and varied platforms of concept, representation and materials.
Works considered for the show could be:
pictorial works that represent spaces and moments that are glimpsed fleetingly if at all
process-based works that employ materials that exist solely as vessels for goods or products, or are artifacts of technologies of display and production
time based works that document forces or phenomena that are barely perceptible or so common as to escape notice
*These are only a few examples, the curator will entertain any works that serve to flesh out the show's overarching concept through a broad range of materials, media and approaches and set up a dialog between works that provokes an examination of this concept on the part of viewers of the exhibition.
This call for entries is meant to complete a show that currently includes the work of 7 artists including the curator, Anthony Ryan.
A total of 15 to 18 artists will be represented in the exhibition. Final selection of works will occur AFTER the Call for Entries process is complete and all artists will be given equal consideration for representation in the final exhibition to the best of our ability.

Residency Open Call: Flux Factory
Flux Factory is pleased to announce two exciting residency opportunities: one for print makers and one for cultural producers of all kinds!
OPPORTUNITY FOR PRINT MAKERS: Flux Factory’s innovative residency program is expanding to include a silk screen residency for print makers.
Flux Factory is a nonprofit organization that provides low-cost residencies in NYC for over 30 artists per year. Together we organize ambitious collective projects and programming in our on-site gallery, as well as collaborative work that is displayed in other institutions throughout the US and abroad.
The Flux Print Maker Residency offers use of an equipped screen printing lab and communal spaces, including our gallery, co-working office, wood shop, kitchen, and library. Residents benefit from an engaged and creative community, access to professional staff, studio visits, monthly potluck dinners & art salons, career development opportunities, and exposure to a large network of cultural producers.
We’re looking for print makers who will be active community members in our prolific social milieu. This residency is perfect for artists who have their own focused practice, but revel in sharing it with others in a vibrant and, at times, chaotic environment. In addition to providing a venue for personal production, Flux Factory also functions as an art-making collective and encourages artists-in-residence to participate in invitational projects.
Our silkscreen studio is a small but fully furnished print shop designed for paper projects and single-layer printing on fabric. The studio contains separate rooms for printing and screen prep. Equipment includes: printing table, 50 shelf drying rack, flat files, spray booth and power washer, dark room, UV light box, and paper cutter.
Resident(s) are responsible for the $350 monthly rental fee and production materials.
Application deadline: January 15th, 2011.

Our residency program, now in its third year, is extremely competitive and has hosted more than 100 artists from around the world.
We are looking for an artist, curator, or cultural producer of any kind, who will also be an active community member and enjoys being part of a wonderful and active social milieu.

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS AND PUBLIC ART
RFQ: Public Art, Block Island State Airport, RI
Call Type: Public Art
Deadline Type: fixed
In accordance with the guidelines of Rhode Island's 1% for Public Art Law, a five member public art selection panel has been appointed by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA). It is composed of one representative of the RI Airport Corporation, a representative of the community, two artists selected by RISCA, and the project architect. The panel has met to discuss aesthetic and thematic concerns for the project. Artist applicants are asked to consider the following in planning their proposals:
Artists are encouraged to think about life on Block Island in all seasons. The diner located at the airport serves breakfast and lunch to residents year round. There is no pharmacy on the island, so residents also go there to pick up prescribed medications from the ticket counter.
Panelists used words like "nautical", "elemental", "meteorological". Some mentioned that living on the island is like living on a ship. You are out on the ocean. Artwork could address elements of water and/or air. It could address the vulnerability and the toughness of life on the island. It is sometimes difficult to get there and to live there in the elements. Block Islanders are adventurous.

CALL TO ARTISTS
Joseph Caleb Center Courthouse and Parking Garage
Project: Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places/ Internal Services Department (ISD)
Estimated Art Budget: $300,000
Location: NW 54th Street and NW 22nd Avenue, Miami, FL
Deadline: January 20, 2012
Eligibility: Open Call to Professional Artists residing in the United States. Applications from architects, landscape architects or other design professionals will not be considered unless included as part of an artist-led team.
The Miami-Dade County Internal Services Department (ISD) and Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs through its Art in Public Places Program request qualifications from professional artists to create a site specific installation for the lobby of the Joseph Caleb Center Courthouse. The selected artist will develop a site specific project in the entrance lobby space, which will transform the most public areas of the courthouse and create a unique identity for the new “branch” Courthouse.
Internal Services Department
Joseph Caleb Center Courthouse and Parking Garage
NW 54th Street and NW 22nd Avenue, Miami
The Joseph Caleb Community Center is an existing complex consisting of a library, day care center, performing arts center and County administrative offices. The new “branch” courthouse building, a 28,500 sq. ft. annex to the existing facility, will front NW 54th Street, a major east-west thoroughfare in the heart of Liberty City. A new four level, 450 space parking garage is also being constructed on the NW corner of the site. A proposed outdoor courtyard between the courthouse building and the parking garage will act as the unifying element for all campus buildings and will also serve as the main pedestrian entrance for the existing building complex. The courthouse will handle civil and traffic-related cases. The building contains two courtrooms, two judge’s chambers and space for the Clerk of Courts, Administrative office of the Courts and Miami-Dade Police.
Miami-Dade County and the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida have a long history of providing County Court services in community based locations. These “branch” courthouses keep the most common judicial services easily accessible to the people served, minimize the pressure of high volume cases on the already crowded conditions of its major core court facilities and provide both the symbol and the reality of justice in communities around the county.
The new courthouse is designed to be LEED Silver certified. Many sustainable features are incorporated into the design, including sustainable finish materials such as composite mineral textured wall panels and wood veneer paneling certified by the Forest Stewardship Council are used throughout the interior spaces.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR PUBLIC ART
The lobby area is often where citizens get their first impression of the County government. Miami-Dade Art in Public Places and ISD envision that an artist will intervene throughout the most common areas of the courthouse. Possible areas for the integration of art include a flooring system for the public areas of the first and second floor lobbies and ancillary corridors, the glass railings for the interior staircase and a chandelier/lighting system, which will hang in the double height main atrium. The integrated work should transform the space into a visual treat and create an engaging experience for employees and visitors of the branch courthouse.
Professional visual artists that demonstrate innovative, contemporary and creative approaches in addressing permanent, site specific works are encouraged to apply. The strength of the artist's concept, design capabilities and established track record of museum/gallery exhibitions are the program's highest priorities. Artworks commissioned by the Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places Trust should add value to Miami-Dade County’s public art collection, attract national attention, vitalize our County’s visual signature, celebrate the diversity and heritage of Miami-Dade County, strengthen economic development and tourism, heighten civic identity, and enrich the spirit and pride of our citizens.
Miami-Dade employees, as well as selection panelists and panelists’ immediate family members, are excluded from participation in this public art project.
ESTIMATED ART BUDGET: $300,000
The artist is responsible for fully developing an artwork within the allocated budget which must be inclusive of design, engineering, fabrication, installation, and any other cost associated with the implementation of the art project. The estimated probable construction costs for the floor, railing and lighting system are not included in the above noted estimated art budget ($300,000). Approximate construction costs will be given to shortlisted artists prior to developing a project proposal.

Application Deadline January 20, 2012 (Midnight)

ABOUT MIAMI-DADE ART IN PUBLIC PLACES
Art in Public Places is a program of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs responsible for the commission and purchase of artworks by contemporary artists in all media. One of the first public art programs in the country, Miami-Dade Art in Public Places was established in 1973 with the passage of an ordinance allocating 1.5% of construction cost of new county buildings for the purchase or commission of artworks, educational programs and collection maintenance. The Art Trust Fund is administered by a County Commission-appointed citizens’ board, the Art in Public Places Trust, in consultation with its Professional Advisory Committee. For more information about the Art in Public Places Program and the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs, please go to www.miamidade.gov/publicart and www.miamidadearts.org.
ABOUT MIAMI-DADE INTERNAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT
Miami-Dade County Internal Services Department is a combination of the former General Services Administration, the Department of Procurement Management, Human Resources and the Construction and Special Project functions of the Office of Capital Improvements. Some of the long-term benefits of this departmental structure include:
• More focus on countywide construction management with the intent that over time other such functions within the County can be consolidated;
• The possible consolidation of the Inventory Management and Procurement functions for better material management;
• Better coordination of employee benefits through the consolidation of benefits section with the Human Resource function; and,
• Opportunities for review of a truly centralized fleet management model.
SELECTION PROCESS It is anticipated that a three-member group of arts professionals drawn from the Professional Advisory Committee (PAC) will identify a small number of finalists who will be paid a $1,200.00 honorarium to develop specific proposals prior to final selection. The primary criteria for finalist selection will be previous artistic accomplishment as demonstrated in images of previously completed artwork, public art experience, and/or initial approach to the project as demonstrated in the preliminary statement. If appropriate, the PAC reserves the right to recommend artists directly from initially submitted applications.
SELECTION PANEL Appointed by the Art in Public Places Trust, the PAC is a national panel composed of professionals in the field of art, public art, architecture, art education, art history, or architectural history. A three-member group will be drawn from the PAC to review all artists’ work respondi
