Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in appropriate field of artistic study, Master’s degree preferred. Strong

background and knowledge of the desired discipline; strong evidence of success in artistic collaboration,

interest and demonstrated ability in teaching and supporting adolescents; sense of humor, flexibility,

energy, collegiality, and the ability to work effectively with a team; ability to work well with a range of able,

highly motivated students; strong organizational skills and high energy and creativity; technological literacy

in standard programs (Word, Excel, Email, Social Media, etc.), and commitment to residential life and

program.

2/29: STUDIOS FOR RENT

2 STUDIOS FOR RENT APRIL 1

My place is at 4921 Exposition Blvd 90016, just opposite the new train line and a few blocks east of La Brea. It’s a wonderful studio and we’ve worked out most of the kinks in the first year of the lease – got a new roof, brought wireless internet to the block, etc. The blocks from Farmdale to La Brea are quickly filling with artists – Mark Dutcher, Mara De Luca, Fine Art Stretcher Bars, etc. There’s a park with tennis, a pool, and fields across the street from the train line, which will begin running downtown soon. An Albertsons is walkable, as is a fine fish shack.

I have three spaces to rent, which could be filled by one to three people, work-only. One is a small front studio, another is a big downstairs studio for those with bigger storage and tall wall needs, and a third is upstairs from that downstairs studio – quite long, if not as high. All studios would have access to shared spaces as needed, including a living room, outside area, kitchen, and two bathrooms. (The small front studio, again, has a third bathroom all to itself.)

The total rent for the three spaces is $1700, including utilities and internet, which I picture being split as follows:

Big downstairs studio: $750 (including utilities/internet): 17 feet tall, and is about 700 square feet. 35 feet of pristine white drywall that runs north/south. it also has another 13 feet of drywall at its north end and 23 x 9 feet of storage, plus about 12 feet of wall space that’s not drywalled. lots of room for both floor and wall work, in other words. two skylights light this, plus some flourescents and hanging lamps. Concrete floors.
Big upstairs studio: $650 (including utilities/internet): 288 square foot balcony (8 x 36 feet), 130 square foot room with shelves connected to 325 square foot room with drywall, so around 740 square feet. This space is shorter than downstairs, obviously, and with less existing drywall, but is very well lit by windows and has a lot of ways in which it could be used. The floor is wood, but nothing precious.
Small downstairs studio: $300 (including utilities/internet): room is about 160 square feet, but on top of that includes own bathroom and closet. A little like an office studio, with big windows and jasmine beginning to grow just outside. Concrete floors.
Let me know if you’d like to come by to take a look!

2/28 LIVE/WORK STUDIO SPACE

Call for Artist Resident:

Concord offers a bedroom and studio space in a converted Warehouse in Cypress Park. Through the residency program the incoming artist will gain access to a community of artists, arts professionals and partnered organizations across Los Angeles.

The length of the residency is six months to a year starting March/April 2012. The resident will be invited to exhibit within or utilize the gallery space in whatever way they like – this can be a show of their own work, or a curated show, or some kind of interdisciplinary project such as a lecture series or workshop. The possibility of organizing multiple events/shows depends on scheduling.

The successful applicant will be enthusiastic to join Concord’s vibrant community and will happily engage in the collective process of organizing our space. What this means is that we would like the incoming resident to be an active member in our community, share in decisions about programming and curating events, aid in fundraising and contribute to conceptual planning and the overall development of the space.

The fees for the residency program are $750 per month with a small commitment to the space in time, skills or ideas; the residency fees includes a large bedroom, studio space, utilities, wifi and access to facilities such as our mobile studio.

We prefer applications in person (all disciplines welcome) – to schedule a meeting or to find out more please contact concord1010@gmail.com

Concord is an artist-run-space and a collective located in Cypress Park. Concord is also an experiment in building community both within the arts, within the home and within the neighbourhood. The gallery and project space hosts exhibitions, performances, readings, music and lectures. The collective lives and runs the project space from within the same building – complicating the divide between public and private space. For more information visit http://www.concordspace.com

Deadline: 03-15-2012

Funding from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation supports direct costs for catalogues and other publications accompanying contemporary art exhibitions and projects, especially those supporting emerging and under-recognized artists and produced by smaller organizations outside the nation’s cultural centers. Limited funds are also available for publications related to the grantee organization and its programs or collections.

Requests for projects that take place within one year of the request will be given priority consideration. Grant amounts typically range from $5,000 to $20,000. Proposals for funding are reviewed by the Trustees semi-annually, in the Spring and Fall.

Letters of inquiry are required before submission of a full proposal. They are accepted throughout the year for preliminary review by the grants committee but must be received by March 15 for the Spring funding cycle and by August 15 for the Fall funding cycle.

Applicants need writing skills, editing skills – some code experience for a Word Press platform, witty journalistic tendencies, contemporary art knowledge, skepticism of all things media hyped and popular people, with an ear to the street plus the guts to skate a staircase rail. You will not have to skate, but you’ll need mental athleticism. Scripting skills and on-camera presence is a plus.

I’m in the middle of starting up another documentary with narrative films in the wish queue – and we are pushing hard on that, and the website is part of a feed of events generated from production to autonomous production of ground level art and culture reporting.

If you can’t afford to go for it, need a paying gig now, forget this. If you’re not on fire to make something happen for something better than your starving-for-attention ego, and get down and do the work, look elsewhere. Contact Paul H-O paul@gallerybeat.net.

MERGE

MERGE: March 31, 2012

Art in Public Spaces

(Info about how to participate follows below)

Over the course of the last eight years, during which FLOOD has worked with the Long Beach Arts District in mounting the annual SoundWalk event, it has become apparent that there is not only an openness to creative experimentation, but there is also strong desire for self-expression among the business owners and residential organizations who have partnered with FLOOD by graciously providing spaces and venues to SoundWalk artists.

With an approach to curation that has as much to do with collaborative performance as it does exhibition, we as FLOOD seek to mobilize diverse groups of individuals to create artwork that is innovative and culturally relevant

As a result, in 2012, FLOOD is launching a trio of events entitled MERGE. This will be an exercise in communal curation merging creative individuals with the Arts District’s business and residential communities. In each of these events, business owners and residential organizations will present artists whom they find relevant. These artists will be juxtaposed and, at times, engaging with artists selected by FLOOD. In what will be an evening highlighting a diversity of interplayful sensibilities, visitors will find themselves within an expressive city space, shifting with fluid aesthetic interactions and energized by creative tension.

WHAT: Merge 2011 Part 1, A one-night event of video projection, sound installations, performance art, theater, music and more by local artists. Parts 2 & 3 are scheduled take place on June 2nd and December 1st.

WHERE: Throughout the area encompassed by 4th St, Linden Ave, First Street and Elm Ave.

WHEN: Saturday, March 31, 2012 from 5 - 10 pm

ADMISSION: Free

PARKING: Metered parking is available on the street; additional parking is also available in the parking lot at the NE corner of Broadway and Elm Ave

Participation:

Artists and businesses can register for MERGE by creating an account and entering their info. Deadline: March 7, 2012 Notification of Site Assignment: March 14, 2012 Application Fee: None

With the informal sobriquet of “AUPRA† (Aesthetically Unbiased Presentation of Regional Art), the first MERGE installment will be especially interplayful. While synthesizing vastly different aesthetic approaches, this exhibition, like its homophone “opera,† will strive to unify all artistic genres through a single event.

As this is an inclusive event, submissions for all genres, both static and non-static media, will be accepted, including:

installation     performance art     happenings     actions     street theater (spontaneous or staged)     dance (ballet, modern, butoh, street, folk etc.)     music (acoustic and electronic)     video, short film     painting, drawing     sculpture     multi-media     inter-media art     sound art

Due to the limited number of indoor spaces, both for exhibition and/or performance, all work should be outdoor-ready or outdoor-adaptable.

As a MERGE participant, your name, likeness, as well as work may be used for publicity purposes and materials related to this event, including, but not limited to, press releases, advertising posters, publications, recordings and MERGE related websites.

By submitting your submission electronically over the internet, you authorize the use of your name, likeness and work for the above-mentioned purpose. Please note that all other personal information (address, telephone numbers, etc.) is strictly for internal business.

MERGE will not furnish any equipment [e.g. power strips, generators, cables etc.], but will provide site(s) and power only)

Submissions: Artists and businesses can register for MERGE by creating an account and submitting their information.

Or you can send an e-mail to info@floodlb.org PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING IN THE BODY PROPER OF THE E-MAIL:

ARTIST CALL: THROUGH A LENS: VIBRANT! 2012 KELLICUTT INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO SHOW

Deadline: 02-29-2012

Coastal Arts League
Half Moon Bay, CA

Jurors:
Scott Atkinson – Landscape photographer and Sierra Club Calendar Editor
Michael Collopy – Preeminent Portrait photographer
Kate Jordahl – Professor of Photography and Digital Imaging, Foothill College

First Prize: $2,000 (Over $3,500 in total prizes) (prizes in US dollars)

Exhibition: July 2012

Eligibility: Open to all photographers internationally using any photographic style

About this year’s theme:
Vibrant and vibrate have the same latin root word: “vibrare” meaning to move rapidly and rhythmically to and fro. While vibrate means virtually the same thing in English, vibrant has additional connotations as it applies to brightness of light or color, or as in how liveliness or energetic is the given subject. “Through a Lens: Vibrant!” gives the photographer several options. Vibrant could apply to a light or hue in the composition, or it could apply to the subject, as to a person or in a street. It could even be stretched to apply to the process – check out the vibrance adjustment layer in photoshop. Which definition of “Vibrant!” will you choose?

2/24 GRANTS/PRIZES/AWARDS

The Hannah Arendt Prize

The MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research Program
www.pnca.edu/programs/mfa/c/criticaltheory

Application deadline: Thursday, March 15, 2012

Theme: The Visible, the Invisible, and the Indivisible
Cash prize: 2,000 USD
Winner announced by Sunday, April 15, 2012 

The Hannah Arendt Prize in Critical Theory and Creative Research is an annual prize competition for anyone interested in the juncture of art and creative research and in the principles at the heart of the arts and humanities, including sense-based intelligence; the reality of singular, nonrepeatable phenomena; ethical vision; and consilience between inner and outer, nature and reason, thought and experience, subject and object, self and world.

Application for the prize is open to the general public. Download the PDF application below and email the completed application and the essay (in a .doc or .pdf format) to ctcrprize@pnca.edu

Explication of theme: Whether rice infused with human DNA, new forms of warfare, fully playable nanoguitars, bots traversing blood streams, or transistors the size of viruses, the major developments of the 21st century are largely invisible and, as such, resistant to critique and intervention—what we call politics as a system of challenge, contestation, and negotiation. How do we force invisible processes into visibility, and what do we do with them once they appear at this threshold? Conversely, what are the means by which the visible might be made to disappear? Are these the right questions?

Along with Anne Marie Oliver, founding Co-Chair, MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research, Pacific Northwest College of Art, and Barry Sanders, founding Co-Chair, MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research, Pacific Northwest College of Art, the judges for 2012 include:

Keith Gessen, Founding Editor, n+1

Lewis Hyde, Richard L. Thomas Professor of Creative Writing, Kenyon College
Atta Kim, Photographer
Geoffrey Mann, Designer and Lecturer in Product Design and Digital Consultant, Gray’s School of Art, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland
W.J.T. Mitchell, Gaylord Donnelley Distinguished Service Professor of English and Art History, The University of Chicago, and Editor, Critical Inquiry
Sina Najafi, Editor-in-Chief, Cabinet: A Quarterly of Art and Culture
Jacques Rancière, Professor of Philosophy, The University of Paris, St. Denis (Emeritus), and Professor of Philosophy, Europäische Universität für Interdisziplinäre Studien/EGS

About the MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research

The MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research (CT+CR), the first of its kind in the U.S., is an accelerated, 45-credit, seminar-based program (one year + summer intensive) that prepares students for opportunities at the intersection of art, theory, and research.  Located in the metropolitan heart of the Pacific Northwest, a center of creative risk-taking and social experimentation, the program combines the study of critical theory as a mode of socio-political critique and creative research as a process-driven form of inquiry, pushing both theory and research in new directions within the context of a 21st-century art school. The program is devoted to people and ideas and to a rethinking of the present and future of cultural production; of arts-based research and research-based arts; of curatorial practice, documentary, and the Archive; and of social and political reconfiguration in relation to major sites of contemporary contestation.  See additional information atwww.pnca.edu/programs/mfa/c/criticaltheory. Founding Co-chairs: Anne Marie Oliver and Barry Sanders.

(7) A detailed description of proposed activities (1-2 pages single-spaced), including: i. a letter outlining in detail the proposed activities the class will engage in and the projected outcomes of the course. ii. a complete budget incorporating equipment, supplies, and any travel, accommodation or honorarium that may be associated with the project.

2/21: CAA

WE WILL BE REPORTING LIVE FROM THE CAA CONFERENCE FEB 23-25! COME AND SAY HI TO US AT OUR TABLE IN THE BOOK FAIR!

We will be at the Book and Trade Fair Thursday-Saturday 2/23-2//25 at the GYST table.

Hours of operation for the Book and Trade Fair are:

Thursday-Friday: 9AM-6PM

Saturday: 9AM-2:30PM

HERE IS A LINK TO FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC EVENTS HERE

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF THE MANY FREE EVENTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO -

CAA PANEL

Nancy Popp will be chairing a panel at College Art Association on Saturday, Feb 25th at 2:30p.

This panel will be multi-sited, participation-based, and open to students and the general public in conjunction with OTIS College of Art and Design’s Re/Locating Learning: Public Practices as Art:
Please join us in the West Lobby of the Los Angeles Convention Center; we will be starting the panel in Conference Room 403A.
Performing Space 
Nancy Popp, Sara Daleiden, Janet Owen-Driggs, Matt Driggs, Marie Shurkus, Bill Kelley Jr.

This Open Forms session is a re-envisioning of the relationship between the self and public space in creating a non-dialectical ‘third’ social space. 
Panel participants will collectively explore alternative methods of presentations and conversational forms within the site of the conference panel.  As investigations of time, inter-subjectivity and spatial theories, these forms attempt a re-framing of notions and functions of performance and presentation.  
Panelists will also inquire into the impetus and affects of contemporary performance practice-particularly in terms of the relational space of the city, and related issues of spatial theory, geo-philosophy and the political activation of social space.


I am hoping to use this panel as a way to ‘Occupy” CAA, and open up the restrictive structure of the conference to create a more equitable platform for exchange and discussion.
Looking forward to your participation!

LA Convention Center West Hall main entrance
@ 1201 South
Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015Site-specific dance and performance works are common in Los Angeles and its environs, a city with only a handful of performing venues but generously landscaped in parking lots and abandoned fields. Dancers, choreographers and performance artists have often taken advantage of LA’s vast collection of buildings, alleys, vacant lots, unnamed urban spaces and historic architecture to create site-specific works that are responsive to LA’s urban landscape.On February 25th, from 12 noon to 1 pm, musician, choreographer, performing artist Maya Gingery will present Not for Nothing Do We Wait,  Described as “a dance to the status quo”, it calls on its audience to engage or disengage with its questioning of space and time in an unforgiving landscape of concrete and human frailty.

Featuring Alexa Weir, Jillian Stein, Jos McKain, Ally Voye, Odeya Nini, Amanda Furches, Busy Gangnes, Maya Gingery and violist Kristina Haraldsdottir.More on Un-space Ground and Art in The Public Realm
Call it an “ArtiGras”, this curated site-specific outdoor performance event of 18 performances by a myriad artists will fill an anonymous plaza for an entire hour in front of the LA Convention Center South Hall at 1201 So. Figueroa. The occasion is the 100th National Conference of the College Art Association, and the symposium, organized by artist/writer/educator Jacki Apple is called Art in the Public Realm.

Application fee: None

ABOUT
Our mission is Inspiring Creativity. In The Banff Centre’s powerful mountain setting in the heart of Banff National Park, exceptional artists and leaders from around the world create and perform new works of art; share skills and knowledge in an interdisciplinary environment; and explore ideas and develop solutions in the arts and leadership.

Arts programs are at the core of The Banff Centre. Programming supports the commissioning and creation of new work by individual artists and arts collectives, and provides resources for collaboration and applied research. Training and professional development at the post-graduate level in more than a dozen art forms including Aboriginal arts, music, theatre, dance, opera, literature, ceramics, print-making, painting, papermaking, photography, sculpture, audio engineering, digital film and video, and new media. Work is showcased in public performance, events, and exhibitions throughout the year, culminating in the annual Banff Summer Arts Festival.

23 Studio Time: Work of the Living Watch
Faculty: Geoffrey Farmer
Program dates: July 30, 2012–August 17, 2012
Application deadline: March 2, 2012
Three weeks, eight talks, and studio time.

This residency will focus on time in the studio while also incorporating walks, conversation, studio visits, and readings as we contemplate the structure of experience. Such study is like hiking up a mountain. As one climbs and becomes aware of wider and wider vistas, it is important to not lose sight of details, at least not the critical ones. We must let go of some, however; life is too short.
http://www.banffcentre.ca/programs/program.aspx?id=1242

In addition to Visual Arts facilities access, Studio Time participants will be invited to attend the public lectures and meet the faculty and participants of the Banff Research in Culture (BRIC) residency, The Retreat: A Position of dOCUMENTA (13).
http://www.banffcentre.ca/programs/program.aspx?id=1210

24 Experimental Comedy Training Camp
Faculty: Michael Portnoy
Guests: Steven M. Johnson, Reggie Watts
Program dates: September 10, 2012–October 26, 2012
Application deadline: April 13, 2012

Rule #1: What you were doing and calling “art” is now called “experimental comedy.”

This residency will include a light study of contemporary humour theory in the fields of psychology, philosophy, and cognitive linguistics as well as a sprint through comedy-writing instructional texts and books on comedy in the visual arts. A weekly experimental comedy club, daily prank calls, and regular “roasts” will occur, where we take existing works of art, ideas, and forms of practice and tweak, skewer, prune and graft them to create new destabilizing chimera. In group sessions, the four main areas of focus will be language/logic, movement/character, scenario/situation, and things which do things.

2/21: GRANTS

CDP RESEARCH GRANTS AVAILABLE

Grants Available for Researchers Utilizing Data from the California Cultural Data Project

The California Cultural Data Project<http://www.cacultur aldata.org/ home.aspx> (California CDP) was launched in 2008 as an online management tool designed to strengthen California’s arts and cultural organizations. Arts and cultural funders and others supported it as a way to gather information on the state’s cultural field and measure the impact of the arts and culture in ways that had not been explored previously. Now that the California CDP has been in place, the California CPD Working Group (a team of arts and culture funders and others) seeks California based organizations to utilize CDP information to analyze the arts and culture sector of our state.

This grant opportunity was created to inspire the use of CDP data by California based organizations to answer novel research questions that have not previously been explored with the referenced dataset(s). Applications are due by March 30, 2012.

The Working Group welcomes applications that represent a broad range of research questions. Some characteristics can include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Research questions that address activity and impact of the arts and culture sector statewide, regionally or locally.
* The California CDP Working Group expects the results of your research to be available for public dissemination, but if that is not your desire, please provide the reasons in your project narrative.
* With CDP data featured as a significant source for the proposed research, projects that incorporate other, credible data sources are also encouraged.

With available funds of $47,000, the Working Group aims to support as many projects as possible. Applicant requests should not exceed $10,000. Grants do not require matching funds; however, applicants that are able to provide matching funds will be reviewed favorably. Applicants must be nonprofit organizations with evidence of tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status or units of state or local government, and be located in or primarily serving the residents of California.

For more information, see the full Research Grant Guidelines<http://www.cac. ca.gov/programs/ cdp_research. php>. Applications must be postmarked by March 30, 2012. Staff from the California Arts Council is available on a limited basis to offer guidance and clarification for potential proposals. Questions can be directed to Rob Lautz at (916) 324-6617 or rlautz@cac.ca. gov, or to Scott Heckes at (916) 322-6376 or sheckes@cac. ca.gov.

If you know how to sigh, grumble and laugh, then you have an expressive voice and something to contribute.

Rehearsals will begin with exercises and improvisations to build vocal agility and develop our expressive vocabulary as a group. Each meeting will unveil a new piece, written specifically for our group by composers, artists, poets, and activists both local and international who were inspired by the People’s Mic. The most successful of these pieces we will premiere and record for special performance broadcast on April 20th.

Participants must commit to attending each rehearsal, recording session and final presentations. Rehearsals will take place on: April 13 7-9pm, 14 10am-4pm, 15 10am-1pm rehearsal, 2pm recording.  After this intensive session, the choir will go on to plan other performance opportunities, including a May Day Michrophony.

All voices are welcome; no auditions.

Reconnect with your voice, expand your sonic awareness, experience community in Los Angeles and lend your voice to an international project of expressive liberation!

Interested in joining?  Please email:
elanamann@gmail.com

Call for Compositions/Scores/Directions/Music
TO BE DISTRIBUTED WIDELY
Calling out to artists, musicians and writers of all kinds: The People’s Microphony Camerata (PMC), based in Los Angeles, CA, is seeking pieces that explore the human microphone technology developed by the Occupy movement. Beyond projecting an individual’s voice further than it can resonate on its own, The People’s Mic has implications for all of the bodies in its vicinity. It energizes listeners in ways the microphone or megaphone cannot by making listening active, vocal, and embodied.

We encourage you to consider these and other questions as you write: What are the implications—personal and social—of repeating someone else’s utterance out loud? How does the act of repetition through different and multiple bodies affect meaning? What happens when vocal sounds outside of language are introduced? Where are the sonic, architectural, dramatic and social limits of the People’s Mic?
All media are welcome. Scores can relate more or less to music, theater, performativity, space, context, and/or visual elements, etc., but must involve multiple voices. Non-traditional graphic or text-based scores preferred. Selected pieces will be performed at public occupation-concerts and all submissions will be available through the web and an eventual publication. Email questions and/or submissions to: elanamann@gmail.com.

About the PMC:
The People’s Microphony Camerata (PMC), was founded in 2012 by ARLA collective members Elana Mann and Juliana Snapper inspired by the Occupy Movement.  For more information about ARLA visit: http://blog.art21.org/2012/01/04/radical-receptivities/.

SUPERNORMAL Festival 2012 Call for Proposals

SUPERNORMAL 2012 call for artist proposals
a unique artist-led event – 10-12th August 2012
Deadline for Proposals: 31st March 2012

www.supernormalfestival.co.uk

Now in it’s third year, (having evolved from Braziers International Artists’Workshop), SUPERNORMAL offers a platform for visual arts and artists of all disciplines to draw inspiration from the event’s unique ethos and setting. An opportunity for dialogue, exchange and exploration of art-focused practice and action in an experimental environment where risks can be taken and leaps of imagination can occur. We encourage participation in the festival as both artist and spectator to give the arts a wider audience and artists a greater challenge outside the conventional gallery space – putting the arts at the heart of the festival.

Proposals & Selection Process

Proposals will go through a selection process and will be judged on the quality of the idea, along with an understanding of the context and audience of Supernormal. As an event that promotes an amalgam of experimental art and music, we will be looking for work that may offer a different viewing or participatory experience – that engages and inspires thought, whether challenging or easily accessible. The work should show understanding of the audience for an event that promotes experimental art and music and work that breaks new ground.

Supernormal welcomes proposals from artists, performers and groups as detailed above. Please include an outline of your idea, work or project in as much detail as possible along with any supporting images and links. (up to 750 words)

Funding & Resources

Supernormal is a not-for-profit event with an invisible budget and limited resources, although we are currently working on funding proposals to assist in the production of work. We would encourage artists to source outside funding where possible. We can provide artists with guest passes to the event, food and drinks, promotion of projects and profiles.

Things to consider
-How you plan to execute the work
-How much time will you need on site
-What materials and resources you will need
-Consideration of the weather
-Location of work on site (would you need a pre-visit)
-Is it self-supporting  -Does it involve participation
-How you will facilitate the work during the event

Please send proposals to:
studio1-1.gallery@virgin.net
with SUPERNORMAL ARTIST PROPOSAL in subject bar

We look forward to hearing your ideas!

Intaglio (from the Italian word “to carve”) is the reverse of relief printing.
In a relief print, the ink is rolled onto the surface and not into the lines; in an intaglio print, the ink is pushed into the lines and pits then wiped off the surface of the plate.
To pull an intaglio print, the artist must use a printing press in order to create enough pressure to force the dampened printing paper down into the inked lines.
The matrix in intaglio is a thin plate of metal (usually zinc or copper) or any other surface in which a line can be made.
In etching the artist covers the plate with a protective ground, draws through the ground, and then immerses the plate in a mordant (such as nitric acid or ferric chloride.)
The mordant eats into the metal wherever it is exposed,
creating etched lines and marks that correspond to the lines drawn
through the ground. Using a hard ground yields a crisp line; soft ground creates a less distinct line and can also be employed to transfer textures.
Execution of one etching with free theme.

During the week workshop the students will work in the Atelier and will live in nice apartments in historic centre of Lecce, Italy.
Take a look on  http://www.primopianoatelier.com  about other type of residency or workshops.
All the work done during the workshop, will remain the property of the artists will be provided to them all the material needed for implementation.
The cost is inclusive of inscription, accommodation, lessons, materials, and certificate of recognition.

series each year of the appointment, and work actively with program faculty
to develop a unique approach to media studies/visual studies that speaks to

Wysing Arts Centre Residencies 2012, Cambridge, UK

Call for 12 six week long residencies
Deadline: 17 February, 2012
Application fee: None

Wysing Arts Centre announces new residency and studio opportunities for 2012.
Wysing Arts Centre invites applications for twelve six-week long artists’ residencies. The residencies are grouped into three ‘environments’ that have emerged from ongoing artistic enquiry focused around Wysing’s role as a centre for artistic research and development, its location on the geographic margins and its utopian origins as a space for artistic experimentation and alternative ways of being.

The three environments take three metaphors as their starting points: The Cosmos, exploring the past/origins/knowledge; The Mirror, exploring the present/reflective/commentary; and The Forest, exploring the future/a return to nature/transformation. All three environments are influenced by literary references to other worlds and the merging of fact and fiction, in particular the writings of JG Ballard, Jorge Luis Borges, Michel Foucault, WG Sebald and Kurt Vonnegut. It is expected that resident artists will contribute to ongoing group discussions around literary and philosophical references and be prepared to take part in public discussions on their work and ideas in relation to the environments. Additionally, artists will be expected to attend ongoing events with invited contributors including distinguished experts, amateur hobbyists and members of the public. Artists will be expected to be resident at Wysing Arts Centre throughout the six weeks duration. Four artists will be selected to work, at the same time, within each environment. The timeframes are:

The Cosmos 1 April-11 May; a six week residency with a series of public events led by contributors; public presentation 12-27 May.
The Mirror 15 July – 24 August; a six week residency with a series of public events led by contributors; public presentation, public presentation 25 August – 9 Sept.
The Forest 4 Nov – 16 Dec; a six week residency with a series of public events led by contributors; public presentation, public presentation 12-27 Jan 2013.

There is no form to fill in to apply for residencies. Instead we ask artists to provide the information listed below. Please keep emailed applications below 3mb in size. We are happy to receive MP3/4 files or CDs/DVDs instead of written applications. Applications may also be posted to Wysing Arts Centre, Fox Road, Bourn, Cambridge, CB23 2TX.

Or emailed to Elinor Morgan, Artists and Programmes Curator
http://www.wysingartscentre.org/about/links/197.html

A statement on which residency you would like to attend and how it would be relevant to your practice at this time (max 400 words)
A general statement on your practice (max 400 words)
A current CV
A selection of 6 images or other relevant material (CDs, DVDs, etc)
The artists’ fee for a residency is £2,000 with a further £2,000 available for travel and production. We are grateful to Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation for their support of the residencies. The deadline for residency applications is Friday 17 February, 5pm.

In the old center of the town, in a mediaeval orphanage with adjacent inner garden and Maria Chapel, HMK receives artists from all over the world.  Hotel Mariakapel has grown from the ideal to create a concentrated work- and presentation place, where dialogue and collaboration inform experimental, context-based visual art projects. It was set up and is still run by a dedicated team of artists, assisted by local and international volunteers.

Projects are developed both in public space and in the chapel’s exhibition space.

UdK Award for Interdisciplinary Art and Science, Berlin

International call for individuals and groups
Deadline 01 March 2012
Application fee: None

Berlin University of the Arts (UdK)
The UdK Berlin is one of the biggest, most traditional institutions of advanced artistic education in the world. It has the right to award doctorates and post-doctoral lecturing qualifications and offers more than 40 study courses covering the full spectrum of the arts and related academic fields. With its Colleges of Fine Art, Design, Music and Performing Arts and the Central Institute of Continuing Education it is one of the few centres of advanced art education in Germany with university status.

The Competition
Art and science are moving towards one another, discovering common issues and working methods. The creative, imaginative processes in the arts and sciences are similar, whereas the concrete realisation of their results tends to differ. Repeatedly, this difference is the source of productive tension and areas of friction. In all disciplines of the arts and sciences, further developments over recent decades have been characterised by mutual influences and efforts at differentiation. Today, traditional dividing lines between the spheres can no longer be maintained; they are being newly defined and presented in their permeability.
This competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists (fine art, media, architecture, design, music, theatre, visual communication etc.) and scientists to work between the priorities of the arts or between the arts and science.

Participants
Individuals and groups are eligible to participate. Full-time employees of the UdK Berlin, as well as students of the UdK Berlin and other colleges/universities are excluded.

Entry Deadline
The deadline for entries is March 1, 2012. The registration form including detailed information can be requested from the address below and is also available as a download.

Prize
The prize will be awarded on a biennial basis and is endowed with 7,500 Euros.

Jury
Prof. Martin Rennert, President of the UdK Berlin (chairman of the jury)
Wolfgang Knapp, Commission for Artistic and Scientific Projects at the UdK Berlin
Prof. Axel Kufus, Speaker of the Postgraduate School of the UdK Berlin
Fiona Tan, Amsterdem (for the scope of arts)
Benjamin Bergmann, Munich (for the scope of arts)
Prof. Dr. Thomas Schnalke, Berlin (for the scope of sciences)
Dr. Angela Schönberger, Berlin (for the scope of sciences)

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 http://www.antifestival.com
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: http://www.antifestival.com/2011/eng/info/proposals/

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.

ABOUT
KARST is a new non-profit, artist-led, exhibition and project space in Plymouth. Officially opening in April 2012, the previously disused industrial space will function as a large exhibition venue for local, national and international artists through selected and guest-curated projects, with the aim to provide a framework to be more supportive and connected to national and international contemporary visual arts.

Karst’s ethos is dedicated to promoting dialogue, development and experimentation, whilst providing a supportive and critically engaged environment through its curatorial and studio programmes. As part of this new initiative for Plymouth there will be opportunities for participation and discussion through a developing programme of events and pop-up projects involving other artist-led initiatives and the wider cultural community.
