ACP Photo Festival Public Art Project

National Deadline: February 12, 2012 - Since 1998, Atlanta Celebrates Photography has supported Atlanta's emergence as an international center for photography. Through an annual October festival and year-round programs, ACP seeks to nurture and support photographers, educate and engage audiences, promote diverse photography venues, and enrich Atlanta's cultural scene.

The acclaimed ACP Public Art program, an integral component of the annual ACP festival, has featured temporary projects in a variety of diverse locations throughout Atlanta. It is significant in its ability to reach beyond the audience of traditional art venues and for its ability to expand the way its audience considers and perceives photography and ''lens-based'' media.

Any artist as an individual or team may apply, provided that the person(s) or firm who will be responsible for the actual fabrication and/or construction of the piece(s) have had previous experience in the medium(s) proposed, which must be disclosed in detail in the application form.


No media restrictions have been established in order to ensure maximum creativity for participating artists. However, since ACP is an organization that promotes all things photographic, it is a requirement that your project involve lens-based or photographic media as an integral part of the piece (this includes images and/or video captured by a lens, or media in which light sensitivity is a primary element of the material, or reimagining the uses of photography, or possibilities of imagery made with light). We encourage you to think widely and to explore this concept without restraint.

Please keep in mind the ''Selection Criteria'' listed below. Projects that rely heavily on complex or untested technologies are discouraged - usually, the simpler the better. Please download descriptions of past ACP projects for a demonstration of the variety of projects we have commissioned.

$9,000 has been allocated. The budget is all-inclusive, covering design, construction and/or fabrication, transportation, delivery, site preparation, lighting (if applicable), insurance, consultant fees, installation and de-installation at the conclusion of the project. Artist's travel (if applicable) and all other costs associated with the project (including Artist's fee) are included in this amount. If the proposed budget exceeds $ 9,000, your application must detail how the overage will be funded.

Applicants may propose sites, but should be aware that it is the applicant's responsibility to obtain permission and access from the proper authorities. Note that Artist should initiate the obtaining of permission during the application process if possible. ACP can assist the artist in securing an appropriate site(s) for the project if assistance is needed. Consideration should also be given to security, view accessibility, and ambient light issues of a proposed site. ACP would like the project to begin in late September/ early October 2012 and be on exhibition throughout the month of October, but will consider other time durations as they relate to specific projects. The artist should plan to remove the project early November, 2012.

All applications are being accepted online. Download Prospectus for instructions. All applications must be completed by midnight MST, February 12, 2012.

Artists will be notified of jury selection by email.

Your application requirements are listed below. More details are provided here:

Make sure your budget is inclusive of all elements described in ''Budget'' section above.

Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 2/17/2012
Eligibility: Chicago
ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival, 25 – 30 Sept 2012, Kuopio, Finland
Call for Proposals 2012 - Wanted: Live Art for Children!
Deadline: February 17th 2012
Application Fee: None

ANTI is an international contemporary arts festival presenting site-specific works made for public space. Over the past 10 years ANTI has presented live, sonic, visual and text-based art from today’s most exciting and innovative artists. A truly international festival and Finland’s foremost presenter of Live Art, ANTI is a meeting place for artists and audiences fascinated by how art shapes the spaces of everyday life.

We are looking for innovative and exciting live art works for children. ANTI has a long history of presenting ground breaking projects for children and this year our annual call out is focused on finding something truly inspiring. We especially invite proposals from contemporary performance makers who have not made. work for children before but would like to produce something for a young audience. In previous years companies and artists like Gwendoline Robin, Lone Twin and Mammalian Diving Reflex have presented outstanding work for children at ANTI. That’s the tradition we want to continue: great work made by great contemporary artists for children.

Your project can take any form – it may be participatory and children do something with you, or it might be something a young audience encounters by surprise, or anything in between. Your project may last 30 minutes or seven days. It may be for an audience of one, or hundreds and projects should be targeted at specific age groups – from new-borns to teenagers.

ANTI is a site-specific festival – we do not show work in traditional art spaces, neither do we show touring street theatre: all our projects have a direct relationship with the spaces and places they are shown in. When proposing a project please make it very clear where your project would ideally be located, and why.

Before making your proposal please visit
and spend some time with the archive to get a sense of the festival and Kuopio.

The proposal process
All proposals must be sent using the electronic form on the festival’s website:

The form allows a link to be made to any online documentation artist’s may have of previous work and for artists to attach their CV and three images of their work. Any proposals that do not conform to these guidelines will not be considered.
The proposal deadline is February 17th 2012.

CALL to ARTISTS: CALADAN GALLERY presents a juried exhibition entitled "ISOLATION".

We are searching for the visual reflection of isolation and its effects on the individual as well as the greater society. We have been extremely fortunate to be creating an exciting, diverse, and active meeting place for artists, averaging over 55,000 viewers a month, and have provided a warm and positive virtual atmosphere since 2003.

Torpedo Factory Art Center Visiting Artist Program

International Deadline: February 15, 2012 - Emerging and experienced artists are invited to apply for one, two, or three-month residencies between June 1 and August 31, 2012. Visiting Artists will be provided with studio space and will be able to display and sell original work. The Torpedo Factory is open to the public every day; visitors are invited and welcomed into studios to watch artists at work, ask questions, and purchase original art. The projects undertaken by Visiting Artists for this self-directed, creative residency must be compatible with available working studio spaces and facilities. Finalists will be selected by juror Paula Amt.

There is no application fee.

The Visiting Artist Program is open to all emerging and experienced visual artists over the age of 21 who are not currently Torpedo Factory leaseholders [Torpedo Factory Associates are eligible and selection will not affect Associate status].

Applicants provide evidence of artistic accomplishment through submitted images and the application form.

By applying, applicants agree to: (1) work in front of, and interact with, the public; (2) work in the studio five days a week during the period of the residency (because most of our visitors come on the weekends, we request that Visiting Artist work on those days); and (3) commit to follow the Visiting Artist Program requirements.

The Visiting Artist Program residency is intended as a professional development opportunity for emerging and experienced visual artists, and to expose visitors to exciting artists and projects. Applicants may apply for a one, two, or three month residency period.

The projects undertaken by Visiting Artists for this self-directed, creative residency must be compatible with available working studio spaces and facilities.

The Visiting Artist will have the opportunity for informal collegial exchanges with Torpedo Factory artists. As part of the program, each Visiting Artist is also asked to conduct a workshop, give a lecture, or provide a demonstration, elaborating on his/her work. Visiting Artists will be able to display and sell original artwork, and will be provided with workspace.

Each Visiting Artist will pay one-half of the rent of the studio (amounts range between $130 and $400 per month for the Visiting Artist depending on the studio). The Torpedo Factory Art Center does not have any shared equipment or facilities. All expenses and arrangements related to art materials, equipment, transportation, housing or other requirements are the responsibility of the Visiting Artist.

Selections will be made in a two-step process. The juror, Paula Amt, will review all applications and select a group of finalists who present evidence of artistic merit and promise based on submitted images and applications. The Visiting Artist Program Committee will then match as many finalists as possible to spaces available, taking into account the applicant's requirements, attributes of the specific studios available, and the goal of providing a range of media experiences to our visiting public.

Visiting Artists will occupy studios temporarily vacated by resident artists, and will have use of half of the display space and a dedicated work area. Because studios differ widely in size, configuration and features (e.g., ventilation), and studios are not completely sealed off from each other, enabling sound and odor to travel widely throughout the building, it is important that applicants identify equipment and materials to be used during the residency.

Applicants will be notified of final decisions by April 1, 2012.

Paula Amt is a painter and the owner of gallery plan b and Framesmith DC, both in Washington DC. She studied studio art and art history in Virginia and Paris. Paula has been active in the DC art scene since 1998, when she joined a co-op gallery on R Street.

Her experience as a framer led her to work with many local artists and collectors. In 2000, she began showing small groups of artists in temporary locations in the DC area; in 2005 she established gallery plan b where she continues to search out and show the work of many talented artists.
