Curated by Michael Workman/Antidote Projects


“Fascism … also stands for an ideal or rather ideals that are persistent today under the other banners: the ideal of life as art, the cult of beauty, the fetishism of courage, the dissolution of alienation in ecstatic feelings of community; the repudiation of the intellect; the family of man (under the parenthood of leaders).” –Susan Sontag, Fascinating Fascism

This exhibition interrogates the seductiveness and glamour of evil. Evil, after all, is adept at projecting a certain kind of charm. We cherish the antics of our TV and motion picture villains in all their insouciant brutality and eroticized violence. But evil can also exert a subtle charm in the allure of its ability to feign a release from life’s problems. Accepting the Faustian bargain of evil offerings requires a willingness to enter into a complicity with that evil, and to sacrifice the ideals of the “good life” that we aspire to. It is arguable that consenting to evil is always an intimate choice, with the goal of manipulating its victims into rejecting their own self-worth and, in consequence, to giving away control over the direction of their own life-course, now subsumed in service to evil. This can take place on the level of an intimate personal relationship, as in the instance of a rakish seduction, or on the level of an entire culture, as the history of fascism has shown.

Borrowing from a diverse range of artists from Filippo Marinetti, Rirkrit Tiranamija, Yves Klein and Wyndham Lewis, the exhibition space will be converted into a domestic backdrop against which objects, activities and more will form a totalized artistic environment. Visitors will be invited to interact with this environment while performances are conducted in the manner of a teatro totale. The question of the allure of evil will be interrogated both in objects that compose the environment, in performances both interactive with the audience, and in those acted out as if no audience were present. Video documentation of these performances will be presented following their presentation, and presented thereafter as a documentary component of the exhibition.


ANTIDOTE is a roving, independent curatorial and exhibition platform co-founded by Michael Workman and Berlin-based sculptor Edouard Steinhauer in 2009. Conceived as an occasional project-based initiative, ANTIDOTE does not take on artists for career representation, preferring instead a collaborative approach to the cultivation of unconventional formal approaches to audience engagement. ANTIDOTE serves as an independent curatorial platform to advocate for and disseminate the works of underrepresented artists, specifically through special presentations and exhibitions at art fairs, publications, educational programming, and other nontraditional forms of curatorial programming, with an aim to exploring unorthodox distribution systems for disseminating artist’s works. ANTIDOTE only showcases artists who have been carefully selected for visual work that consistently centers on the development of intricate imaginative world or system-based constructions, dematerialization of traditional forms, and/or whose work otherwise counters the purely object-based approach to art-making. As such, often these artists have been overlooked by the art world, since their approach often problematizes the conventions of or confounds audience expectations surrounding the industry’s cultivated preference for traditional object-based modes.

Animal Facts, Fairy Tales and Fictions

Call Type: Exhibitions
Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 3/5/2012
Eligibility: Chicago
From the past to the present, there has always been an astounding diversity of life on our planet with so many unique animals. Their spirits and unique characteristics, such as horns, tails, feathers, and scales, provide endless inspiration to artists. These animals are depicted in art in their truest forms as well as thorough our incredibly imaginative spirit.

Animals take on many meanings in our lives, from the years of the zodiac to the spirits of totem poles. We associate with their characteristics, such as their speed, strength, agility, and keen senses of perception. As we associate with their characteristics and combine them, new animals are imagined like dragons, unicorns, harpies, and griffins. Animals appear in our stories and fairy tales like Alice in Wonderland, Where the Wild Things Are, and The Cat in the Hat. The rich history of animals represented in mythologies and folktales is endless. These animals awaken our creative spirit and feed our imagination.

This regional exhibition, juried by Kate Sprengnether, will explore a wide range of animal depictions in art. We'll see how artists continue to draw from past stories as well as create new narratives as characters in their art take on animal traits, and new creatures are imagined.

Call for Artists // I CAN DO THAT

Call Type: Exhibitions
Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 3/5/2012
Eligibility: Chicago
“I can do that.” –Everyone, ever.

Ahhh, the four most frequently uttered words in the art world. Commonly the cause of much frustration and eye-rolling among artists, art historians, and art lovers, this [occasionally hubristic, occasionally accurate] assertion is usually countered with the retort, “But you didn’t do it.” Oftentimes, it is the concept behind a work of art that lends that work significance and meaning. Other times, some art really does suck.

What if we give you, o’ self-appointed art critic, the opportunity to play an active role in creating the kind of work that you so vocally long to see?

I CAN DO THAT is independent curator Jenny Lam’s highly anticipated follow-up to last fall’s acclaimed Exquisite Corpse show. At the exhibition, in front of each piece will be the art supplies the show’s artists used to create their respective works. With these supplies:

Exhibition visitors will be invited to “improve” some of the artwork as they see fit, directly applying medium to the work itself. This could mean anything from dotting one small corrective brushstroke to smearing paint all over and slashing the canvas. Each subsequent visitor is encouraged to make further changes. Consequently, the exhibition will constantly be in flux. There will be photo and video documentation of this continuous evolution.

In front of other artwork will be blank canvases—or whatever foundation the artist used—for visitors to replicate the pieces.

Next to all artwork will be blank sheets of paper for visitors to compile their own artist statements and insights.

Exhibition opening: Friday, April 13, 2012
Exhibition closing: Friday, April 27, 2012
at Variable Space (1564 N. Damen at Milwaukee, Chicago)

Application deadline: March 5, 2012

Dawn Emerson earned her BA from Brown University in English/Art in 1977. She made a living after college as a graphic designer for 10 years, then started teaching art to children in public and private schools after moving westward in 1987. Though Dawn had drawn all her life, and studied brush painting from an early age, her ambition at that point was not on becoming a fine artist, but on teaching. After moving to Oregon in 1991, Dawn became a full time artist in residence for schools throughout Central Oregon, teaching multicultural arts, design, and drawing.

Though she continued teaching children k-12 for 5 years while raising her two children, Dawn began taking workshops for pastel. After that, pastel became a passion, and Dawn quickly began winning major awards, and soon earned status as a signature member with the Pastel Society of America, the Pastel Society of the West Coast, the Association of Equine Artists, and as an associate member of the Society for Animal Artists.

Dawn's work has been featured in numerous journals and texts over the years. She has been included in museum shows around the country focussed on birds and animals, and has been invited to jury numerous shows in Idaho and Oregon. Dawn was privileged to judge The Artists Magazine animal category in 2011, and the animal category in the annual Pastel Journal's Pastel 100.

Dawn has become known for her creative and inspiring approach to teaching drawing and pastel workshops. The passion for energy and movement that is alive in her paintings are part of her who she is as a teacher. When she is not preparing for shows or teaching at the community college in Central Oregon, Dawn works at the local printmaking studio doing monotypes. Though pastel is her primary medium, more and more of her work includes mixed media. While her subjects include mostly the figure, landscape, and animals, all subjects are exciting to her, and her work spans realism through abstraction.

Preliminary selection will be made from digital images (hereafter referred to as images) submitted according to instructions. Artists may submit a maximum of 4 images. Entry fees are $35 for the first two images, and $10 for each additional image. Entry fees will not be re-funded. Size of work is limited to 42 inches in any direction, including frame.

14th Annual Art on the Streets

International Deadline: March 6, 2012 - In its fourteenth year, AOTS is a yearlong venue to showcase the works of new as well as celebrated artists from across the nation while enlivening the Downtown Colorado Springs cityscape and urban experience.

Selected artwork will be exhibited throughout the 40-square-block downtown district, with the majority of pieces clustered in the busiest 10 to 15 block core.

While sculpture tends to dominate the entry pool, other types of public art suitable for outdoor display are highly encouraged. Large-scale, outside-the-box, can't-be-missed pieces are desirable. The only common denominator among selected works is the durability, safety and quality of the art.

A color brochure of the AOTS exhibit - including photos of the artwork, artists' biographies and a walking tour map - will be produced and released through the Downtown Partnership, Community Ventures, Inc., Convention & Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Pikes Peak Library District and numerous downtown businesses. It will also be available online.

Total number of selected pieces depends on the scope and quality of entries; however, approximately 8-12 pieces typically make up the show. Jurors Kathy Loo and Jim Raughton will announce all of the selections and personally introduce the award winners at the June 15, 2012 opening reception. The exhibit will run through May of 2013.
First Prize $15,000
Second Prize $7,500
Third Prize $2,500
Plus $400 honoraria to each artist for installation assistance and two nights complementary lodging per artist for attendance at VIP party and opening reception.
Community Ventures is pleased to announce that Kathy Loo and Jim Raughton will co-juror the Downtown Colorado Springs 2012 Art on the Streets exhibition for a second consecutive year. These prominent supporters, patrons and collectors of art will select the works to comprise the fourteenth year-long exhibition.
Kathy Loo is a highly regarded civic leader and philanthropist, who co-chaired the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center's recent capital campaign that made possible the spectacular addition to the original John Gaw Meem building. Kathy and her late husband, Dusty Loo, were discriminating collectors of 19th and 20th century Colorado landscape art that ultimately will become part of the FAC's permanent collection.

Dr. Raughton married to Kathy, is a lifelong collector, and three floors of his historic Denver house contain his outstanding collection of art and artifacts. Jim's career includes urban planning, environmental design and higher education. He was a planner for the cities of Aurora, Lakewood and Boulder, as well as a private consultant. He served as Vice President of the Colorado Community College System which included the Percent for Art Program for community college campuses throughout Colorado.
Artists may enter two works, with a suggested minimum dimension of 3 feet, vertical or horizontal, and scaled to outdoor spaces. Artists should consider that their work will be exhibited outdoors and accessible to the public for a period of approximately 11 months.

Proposals using alternative materials, and/or creative use of space is encouraged. Please call to discuss if you have questions.
Read Complete Prospectus / Apply-on-Line
All materials should be submitted in digital format online.

First Paid Review of My Website

Below is the first review I've received for a project where I pay writers on Mechanical Turk $5 dollars to write 500 words about the art on my website:

Some of your motivation for your unique style becomes more apparent as one views your adaptation to the video short. This understanding is only deepened when your educational influences are unveiled in the details of your Curriculum Vitae. New Media is definitely what I would have categorized the majority of you work as. You claimed expertise in a variety of types of paintings but this does not seem to stand out in your work, this could be perhaps your more modern sculptures and video projects really stand out among your other completed works. The first two sculptures on your very well laid out website, “Please Do Not Climb” and “Time Out Zone” have a very inorganic feel to them. These works are most definitely insoluble and give the impression of permanency and official and domineering nature pervades these works. Time Out Zone in particular caught my interest because of the contradictory nature of the commands. The only way these actions could be potentially pulled off is if someone is being put in this position by a figure of authority such as a New York City Police Officer. This theme is of inorganic oppressive pieces continues with the mirrored pillory installation. While you appear to be smiling and happy in several of the pictures and the video the piece itself conveys the feelings of an age of oppression. I know this is a knit-picky comment but the first photo of this installation I think really detracts from the validity of the statement this piece is making. This photo shows you within the pillory but the female photographer is completely visible. This makes the installation seem more of a tourist attraction or an interactive spectacle rather than perhaps a commentary upon the way shopping and commerce enslave humanity to the principles of currency. Also, the holes for the hands are much larger than they would have been upon a traditional pillory. The hand holes on this piece are circular where traditionally they would have been more of a diamond or rhombus shaped to prevent the withdraw of the hand back though the pillory itself. Your free poster piece is a very original idea in the style of John Cage’s 4:33. This idea is quintessentially “new media” and breathes a puff of life into “modern art.” I think most importantly it challenges what we think of as true art and encourages us to embrace the beauty which is all around us and can be found me proper diligence and methods are used. This is what modern are means to me, something which reaches beyond the fundamental notion of the art itself and begins to interact in the remainder of the world in such a way as to actually enhance the experience. I want to include a few comments; first the ball sack was bazaar. Second, I have not included very many comments on your videos at all because I am particular put off by this type of media. I apologize for this and am encouraged by your work.

eim gallery
Call Type: Exhibitions
Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 3/1/2012
Eligibility: International

As we plan our 2012 season, we invite submissions from individual artists, collectives, or curators to submit proposals for the EiM Gallery. Our space is non-traditional, and as such, we have some unique parameters for artists to contend with. Our presentation spaces are as follows:

- The Blue Wall. appx. 5m x 2.5m, appropriate for any wall-based works. These works should probably look good on blue.

- The Scrim. appx. .7m x 1m, hole in a wall between two rooms, covered with a scrim. This space will be used primarily for video works. The Scrim is viewable from both sides, a fact which should be considered when proposing works.

- The Dining Room. our dining room comes completely empty, and is appx. 4m x 3m. This space can be used for a large sculptural work, installations, performances, audio work, etc.

- The Backyard. we have a small, unkempt, mostly concrete-covered backyard, which, legend has it, has a pond hidden somewhere underneath the concrete and planks of wood. There is a large brick wall at the back of the yard, and four steps leading down from the house. This space is appropriate for installations, performances, sculptures, etc.

- The Basement. We have a large, poorly-lit, unfinished basement. This space is appropriate for installations, performances, sculptures, audio work, etc.

When applying, please include:

1) A description of the proposed piece(s), including proposed presentation space
2) Bio/C.V.
3) Appropriate links, including website, images, publications, etc.
4) If the work you are proposing a new piece, any appropriate diagrams, etc.
5) Dimensions, durations and technical requirements of the proposed piece.
6) If the work has been presented previously, please include details as to where and

Submissions are ongoing. Please apply via email to
Electricity is Magic was founded in 2009 by Matt Griffin and Eric Powell as a label to release experimental electronic and electroacoustic music. To date, EiM have released 6 physical and digital records. Quickly, they expanded their scope to include curatorial and gallery projects, beginning with Vinosonic at Chicago’s Experimental Sound Studio in September 2009. Since then, EiM have partnered with artists and galleries throughout North America to create performative and time-based events in unconventional spaces and contexts.

In the spring of 2012, EiM are proud to be opening the doors to the Electricity is Magic Gallery, an apartment space at 715 Richmond St., in Toronto.

Our aim with the gallery space is to continue to present works that don’t necessarily fit comfortably within a traditional gallery context. Artists will be given the challenge of presenting work which engages with or reacts to the living space of the apartment. We are particularly interested in work which employs some aspect of technological mediation, but not necessarily as the impetus for the piece. We’re also interested in slow art, which not only requests, but often demands, and always reminds us of the pleasure in sustained viewing of a particular work.

Submit to Recession Art's Spring 2012 Group Show

Recession Art
(Brooklyn NY)
Everything is Index, Nothing is History

Recession Art is now accepting submissions of artwork in all media for our next exhibition, to be held at the Invisible Dog in Brooklyn from June 2 – 17, 2012. Curated by Melanie Kress, Everything is Index is an exhibition about writing and interpreting history, specifically contrasting histories written through language with histories inscribed on the physical world. An “index” may be a footprint, a scar, a photograph—a document pointing to a moment in time. Everything is Index is an exhibition about how we experience the world as an accumulation of physical traces. Of special interest are works that engage in alternative modes of writing, framing, and interpreting history. And question how we determine truth and veracity. Works may address topics such as archive, information systems, story telling, the natural sciences, and photography.

Submissions are open to artists working in all media. The deadline for submissions is March 2. Artists will be notified of acceptance by April 6.

Call for Applications: Home Workspace Program 2012–3 / Ashkal Alwan

Call Type: Other Calls
Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 2/28/2012
Eligibility: Chicago
Ashkal Alwan is currently accepting applications for the 2nd edition of Home Workspace Program: HWP 2012–13 with RP Matthias Lilienthal.

Deadline for submissions is February 28, 2012.


The HWP is an annual, interdisciplinary arts program launched by Ashkal Alwan in 2011. The program targets emerging artists who wish to develop their formal, historical and critical skills and practice in a supportive environment in Beirut.

Each edition or class of the HWP runs for 10 months, led by a different Resident Professor (RP) each year and admitting approximately 15 participants.

Part academic, part practice-based, the curriculum consists of lectures, workshops and seminars by the RP and other leading local and international artists, writers, thinkers, filmmakers, curators, etc.

In addition to the curriculum, participants also benefit from a support-network of individuals, professionals, venues and resources around Beirut and elsewhere in Lebanon.

Participants are expected to reside in Beirut for 10 months with limited outside engagements, to participate actively in the various activities initiated by the RP and other visiting professors, and to develop and produce a project.

The HWP 2012–13 starts in October 2012.


Curriculum Committee
Grounding the program and defining its educational framework is the Home Workspace Curriculum Committee consisting of members whose artistic practices and experience in education engage a diverse range of disciplines and media. Current members of the Curricular Committee are Joana Hadjithomas, Walid Raad, Khalil Rabah, Lina Saneh and Gregory Sholette.

Resident Professor (RP)
Each year, the Curriculum Committee invites an artist, filmmaker, thinker or writer to propose a program of research and study as that year’s Resident Professor (RP). The RP acts as the yearlong ‘mentor’, working closely with participants and following up on their projects. In collaboration with the Committee, the RP shapes the year’s curriculum and invites a series of visiting professors to conduct workshops and seminars and work with participants. These workshops and seminars typically engage contemporary art and critical practices, and select lectures are opened to the public. For the current 1st edition of HWP, RP Emily Jacir has invited visiting professors Tony Chakar, Rami Daher, Mirene Arsanios, Akram Zaatari, Kamran Rastegar, Alfredo Jaar, Franco Berardi, Cesare Pitroiusti, Hito Steyerl, Hassan Khan and Lina Saneh among others.

For the 2nd edition, HWP 2012–13, Ashkal Alwan welcomes RP Matthias Lilienthal.
Read Matthias Lilienthal’s open call here.


The HWP is NOT a residency program. Although non-degree granting, HWP closely resembles a study program at the post-graduate level.


The HWP is tuition-free, and also grants participants a small budget with which to produce their end-of-year project(s).

For 2012–13, HWP will grant each participant a production budget of 1,000 USD, and the choice between a rent-free room in one of Ashkal Alwan’s shared furnished flats, or a 300 USD monthly allowance. Rooms and allowance are allocated based on preference and availability. Participants should be prepared to organize their own accommodation as the number of available rooms is limited.


Successful applicants must:

–Be artists working in any artistic discipline or medium, including video, film, performance, sound, music, installation, photography, painting, sculpture, etc OR cultural practitioners including writers, curators, thinkers, critics and academics

–Have completed undergraduate or graduate arts, arts-related or cultural studies, formal academic training or have equivalent experience

–Have a working knowledge of Arabic and/or English in order to follow the program

–Be available to commit fully to the HWP with limited other engagements

Please also note that:
–Applicants from Lebanon, the Arab region and anywhere in the world are all encouraged to apply

–Only individual candidates are considered; collectives and othercollaborating artists should submit individual applications and will be considered independently of one another

–Former applicants to HWP are welcome to apply again

North River Commission: Ronan Park Temporary Sculpture Installation

Call Type: Public Art
Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 2/27/2012
Eligibility: Chicago

Request for Proposals:

Multicultural Sculpture Park

and Healing Garden in Ronan Park

"Rendering for the design for the Ronan Park Multicultural Park and Healing Garden developed by local residents"

Project Introduction

The Multicultural Sculpture Park and Healing Garden in Ronan Park and the North River Commission is currently seeking submissions for temporary art pieces to be installed in Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood. All sculptures need to remain in the garden for approximately one calendar year. Additionally, each art piece must be able to withstand the harsh weather conditions associated with a Chicago winter, including: high winds and frigid temperatures. But even more importantly, the sculptures themselves must represent the motivations leading to the original creation of the garden, which is to provide a safe place for the entire community to rest, reflect, and renew.

If you are an artist, and you are interested in submitting a sculpture piece in order to support this initiative, please ask the North River Commission for a full “Request for Proposal” packet, which includes:

Guidelines & Policies as a Prospective Sculptor
General Information on Ronan Park
Sculptor Proposal Submission Form
Multicultural Sculpture Park and Healing Garden Checklist Form
Please inform the North River Commission (NRC) of your interest in participating in this unique public arts opportunity by contacting our Arts & Culture Project Coordinator: Rebecca Rico at either: or (773) 478-0202 x 117. Anyone – students, school groups, pre-professionals, professionals or community groups, people of all ages and backgrounds – is eligible to submit a sculpture proposal or a concept for a sculpture.

Project Description

The Multicultural Sculpture Park and Healing Garden in Ronan Park is designed as a place where residents of, and visitors to, the greater Albany Park community can find beauty and peace. It is a place where those who have fled the violence and turmoil of their native countries or who may seek solace from the chaos and complexities of their current home life can rest, reflect and renew. In our expectations for the garden, all can experience the healing power of art and nature. The creation of the garden, its on-going development, and its enjoyment and programming, will all be done by a community-wide effort. Connections between local institutions and neighborhood associations will come together in order to bring the people of Albany Park closer to one another by overcoming the differences found within our community by focusing on the fact that we are all humans that possess a shared existence in this world.

NRC is currently seeking sculptures reflective of these goals to be installed on-site at the Multicultural Sculpture Park and Healing Garden in Ronan Park
