“This workshop is giving us as artist’s the tools we need to make the most out of our art careers. It has really changed my perception about how to go about creating a career.

"There is no place like home"

Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: Rutgers - Paul Robeson Galleries
Deadline: 03/26/12

The home is not only the place where the heart is, but also a site for politics and the imagination. Everyday we hear incessant news about foreclosures, vacancies, homelessness, tumbling property values, and the subsequent disruptions in people’s lives, and communities. At the same time the media generates programs celebrating real estate shenanigans, and the most extreme of home renovations. This exhibition will include the work of contemporary artists who use the idea of ‘home’ as a source of inspiration. It may be that they look at the physical and psychological notions of home (or neighborhoods) or specific rooms within the home. Or ideas about US utopian suburbia or homes in other countries, dolls houses or haunted houses, and the where/what of the many places that various people call home. Exhibition will be on display January – March, 2013.

From the first moment that fire projected shadows onto the cave wall, people have used various types of screens to exhibit images and information. Today we live in a society dominated by “screen culture.” We spend our days with screens: working with computers, relaxing with television, navigating by GPS, and going to the movies. The ubiquity of screens in our lives obscures how different types of screens actually operate, technologically and culturally. This exhibition explores the evolution of this screen culture and its myriad possibilities in transmission.

Screen Capture will present artwork that uses and explores the development of the screen as a platform for exhibition.The curators also welcome proposals for a very special BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) event on the closing night of the exhibition.

Please send a project description of no more than 250 wordssubmissions to Include CV, tech needs and any URLs or other digital support materials.

Genius Loci: Learning from Nature’s Muse

Basic Info:

Call for greater Chicago area visual artists, designers, and architects to participate in Genius Loci: Learning from Nature’s Muse an exhibition sponsored by the Friends of Ryerson Woods (FRW) and curated by Franck Mercurio, independent arts consultant, curator, and writer.

Deadline for submissions: Friday, 30 March 2012

The exhibition opens Sunday, July 8, 2012 and closes Friday, August 31, 2012. The venue is Brushwood, a historic home located on the property of the Edward L. Ryerson Conservation Area, or Ryerson Woods, near Deerfield, Illinois.

Genius Loci is one of four art exhibitions currently being planned for Brushwood as part of FRW’s Lessons from the Prairie series of public programs for 2012. The series offers perspectives on the ways human society can learn from our prairie ecosystem in particular, and natural systems broadly speaking. In addition to art exhibitions, programs will include lectures, workshops, and film screenings. To see a full listing, please visit the Friends of Ryerson Woods website:

The Concept:

The ancient Romans believed that every place on Earth is protected by a guardian spirit or genius loci, literally “spirit of place.” Today, we use this Latin phrase to mean the collective characteristics—cultural, environmental, and psychological—that define a specific locale and distinguish it from all others.Throughout history, some of the most successful works of art and architecture were created by people who captured the genius loci of natural places—their works seem to fit seamlessly within the environments that inspired them. This legacy of listening to and learning from the genius loci continues today as a new generation of artists and designers responds to Nature. What lessons are contemporary artists and designers deriving from different natural regions such as grasslands, mountains, forests, and coastal areas? The group exhibition, Genius Loci: Learning from Nature’s Muse, addresses this central question.

The Exhibition:

As mentioned above, we are interested in displaying works by visual artists, designers, and architects. Emphasis and priority will be given to new works of art and new design projects. The exhibition will feature, but is not limited to: paintings, sculpture, works on paper, photographs, installations, video/film, new media, graphic design, design drawings, and presentation renderings. Between 10 to 12 artists and designers will be selected for inclusion in the exhibition.

Works must demonstrate a response to a specific natural place, ecosystem, or habitat. Which particular genius loci serves as your muse? What lessons has it taught you as an artist or a designer? How does your work fit harmoniously within a particular natural place, either literally or figuratively?

Works will be displayed in the gallery spaces of Brushwood and on the grounds immediately surrounding the house. This historic structure is located within the 556-acre Ryerson Woods forest preserve surrounded by woods, prairie, and the Des Plaines River providing a natural setting with a genius loci all its own.

Inclusion in this exhibition will bring greater visibility of the artists’ or designers’ work to a North Shore audience. Announcements of the exhibition (including the names of all selected artists) will be promoted on the FRW website, eblasts, Facebook, Twitter, and through press releases to area media outlets. A PDF of the official announcement will be given to all participating artists and designers for distribution.

Requirements for submissions:

Artists/designers must live, work, or teach within the greater Chicago region (including northwestern Indiana and southeastern Wisconsin).
Please submit no less than 3 and no more than 6 JPG images of your work. File size should be a minimum of 300 dpi. Please indicate title, size and medium of each piece. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
Submission does not guarantee inclusion in show.
In addition to electronic images, please submit a brief (100 words or less) statement describing your work and how it fits within the conceptual framework of the show.
Please keep in mind that all flat artwork (photographs, paintings, prints, etc.) selected for inclusion in the exhibition will need to be framed or mounted to rigid substrate. Brushwood is a historic building and walls cannot be punctured. Instead, artwork is hung using the Walker hanging system.

Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts (Baltimore MD) The Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts, in collaboration with Artscape 2012, is seeking artists to transform a two-person camping tent into a sculptural installation as part of a tent-based sculpture park in Pearlstone Park. Tents are omnipresent in our cultural zeitgeist, from the tent cities that are created from necessity after natural disasters, to the Occupy movement, to campgrounds, circuses and even the tents that comprise arts festivals such as Artscape itself. Artists are encouraged to think about the tent as a metaphor. The tent is a “blank slate” to use as a starting point. Think about the tent as sculpture. Paint it; add on to it; build around it; transform it! Creative thinking, careful planning and inventive materiality are important. The tents should not be enterable; they will be sealed shut. The tents themselves are transparent, so artists may utilize the interior of the tent, but the audience will only experience the tent from the outside. CURATOR: René Treviño, Exhibitions Coordinator, School 33 Art Center Artscape 2012 is July 20-22nd this year and installation will take place July 16-19, 2012. Selected artists will be required to show periodic progress and will be responsible for installing and de-installing their completed project. Selected artists will receive one tent to use as the base of their artwork along with a stipend of $350 for materials and transporting costs. Applications accepted through March 30, 2012 (Priority may be given to early applicants.)

Artist-in Residence Program - Lycée Français de Chicago: The French International School

Call Type: Residencies, Workshops, Exchanges
Deadline Type: fixed
Deadline: 3/31/2012
Eligibility: International
The Lycée Français de Chicago, an independent co-educational day school, invites artists to submit proposals for our 2012-2013 Artist-in-Residence program.

Who are we?

The Lycée Français de Chicago has been providing a world class education to American and international students since 1995. Beginning in pre-school and continuing through 12th grade, our students thrive in a unique multicultural, dual-language learning environment.

Our school puts a great emphasis on the arts as a cultural expression and as a means of international dialogue. We believe that the arts influence the development of how people communicate their perceptions, responses, and understanding of the world to themselves and to others. We focus on providing each student with the cultural and artistic education necessary for this development.

Since 1997 the Lycee’s Artist-in-Residence program has collaborated with such international artists and institutions as Christian Boltanski, Ery Camara, Sheila Hicks, Laurent Baude, Beate Gütschow, Périphériques Architectes, and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. While each project has explored new linkages between art and learning, it is the integration of the artists’ ideas into the philosophy and overall curriculum, as well as into the day-to-day activities of the school, that are most significant.

Over the next three years, as the Lycée prepares to move to a new school location in 2015, we are seeking three artists, one per year, to create projects with our students that will help us reaffirm our identity as a global community. The theme for the Artist-in-Residence program during these three years will be: “The Lycée as a Community of Productive Contradictions.”

We are looking forward to receiving project ideas that extend our relationship with the community beyond the school walls, and into the truly international world of which we are a part.

What are we looking for?

We are currently seeking proposals for the 2012-13 school year. This call for proposals is open to artists of all disciplines, including but not limited to, visual artists, playwrights, musicians, poets, dancers, filmmakers and new media artists.

We expect the selected artist to work closely with students and teachers from different levels of our school, ranging from Pre-Kindergarten to 12

th grade. The artist will be expected to donate two final products to the Lycée at the conclusion of the residency:

1. An artistic production created with the students

2. Tangible documentation of the project

The contents and making of this final product are open to the imagination, as long as the artist actively engages the students, and the entire Lycée community, in the process of its creation.

Practical conditions of the program

The artist will be given a six week residency that could be spread throughout the school year or intensive, to create, install, perform, and/or display the work.

The artist will be given a generous stipend with travel and accommodation expenses covered. The residency will also include funds for materials to create the final product as well as an opening exhibition and several promotional materials to publicize the project.

The artist will formally meet with students, parents, and teachers to initially present the project, and will then work in close contact with teachers and students to bring the project to life. The artist will take part in two public events, one of which will take place outside of school.

Proposals are due by

March 31, 2012. Please submit (a) your résumé, (b) an abstract of your proposed project, and (c) examples of previous work (or website address) to: Ghislaine Bazir, Assistant Head of School, at under the subject line "Artist in Residence".

We aim to provide a residency that is catered to the individual artist. Proposals may be for a traditional edition of prints, artist books, or projects involving a less conventional use of prints. Artists that wish to work collaboratively may apply together.

Organization Description:
Spudnik Press is a comprehensive cooperative artist studio. Spudnik functions primarily as a space for artists to realize independent projects that require specialized equipment in the areas of Letterpress, Offset, Lithography, Intaglio, Relief, Silkscreen, mono-printing, and book binding. Artists work in close proximity to each other, sharing materials and presses, such that the artwork and art-making practices of each participant informs and influences everyone utilizing the space. Community members interested in printmaking are invited to join classes, workshops, and discussions that take place in the studio. Experienced printmakers are invited to participate in Open Studio. Spudnik Press contributes to other projects to provide services and events that foster interactions between diverse members of the community and nurture local culture.
