- 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.

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

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
