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.

OPEN SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED: Intensive Art Residency/ Pop Up Exhbition at Autonomie

Our Intensive Residency Program (IRP) is a 3-day (72hr) invitation to come to Los Angeles to produce an exhibition. This may be an exhibition of your own work, a two person show or a group show.

From time to time the IRP is also offered to Los Angeles Artists deserving of extended exposure. The 3-day residency is meant to be an opportunity for national and international artists to have an exhibition in Los Angeles as well as the chance to enter into a cross-cultural dialog with other artists.

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 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

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:

2/24 ARTIST CALLS

ARTIST CALL: 2012 SCULPTURE IN THE RUTH BANCROFT GARDEN, CALL FOR ENTRIES

Deadline: 02-29-2012

The Ruth Bancroft Garden
Walnut Creek, CA

About the Garden: Founded in 1972, The Ruth Bancroft Garden (RBG) is a vibrant example of exceptional garden design. The Garden features an impressive collection of succulents, cacti and other drought tolerant plants and is recognized throughout the world as a leader in dry garden design. The Garden provides a spectacular backdrop for artists to display their sculpture throughout the garden along its broad gravel pathways. 2012 is our year-long 40th Anniversary Celebration and we have raised the profile of our Sculpture In The Garden event.

About the Exhibit: Now in its 18th year, Sculpture In The Garden is a month-long exhibit and fundraiser for The Ruth Bancroft Garden. Nearly 1,000 visitors attended the show last year. 2012 is a juried show and the jury will award $1,000 for Best-in-Show. The show will include the work of over 50 California and Western U.S. sculptors. Each selected artist may be invited to display up to two pieces during the month-long event.

Location: The Garden is located two miles east from downtown Walnut Creek at 1552 Bancroft Road, Walnut Creek, California 94598.

Eligibility: Open to all sculptors who apply to show and sell free-standing sculptures of all media that are appropriate for outdoor garden weather conditions. Be aware that there will be some exposure to irrigation sprinklers and artwork may occasionally get wet. Hanging and Wall pieces, and works requiring electricity will not be considered.

Selection Committee and Jury: Phil Linhares, retired Curator, Oakland Museum of California; Clayton Thiel, Artist and Art Professor; and Suzanne Tan, Director, Berkeley Art Center. Their decisions are final.

Sales Information: This exhibition is a fundraiser for the garden. Artists will receive 60% of the sale price, so this deduction should be factored in to the listed price. Last year’s gross art sales were $44,000. Total art sales goal for this year is $75,000. There are no restrictions on pricing.

Marketing: Diablo Magazine, Print Sponsor; ABC Channel 7 News , Media Sponsor. Additional sponsors will be added in January 2012.

Preview Party & Opening Weekend: The month-long event begins with a Preview Party on Friday, June 15 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. featuring live music, food and wine. This is the ideal time to meet our major art buyers and to make early sales. Artists will receive one free ticket and may purchase one half price ticket for the Preview Party. Additional full-price tickets are available for purchase through the RBG website or through The Garden Office. The Opening Weekend continues on Saturday – Sunday, June 16 – 17 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Artists are encouraged to be present during the Opening Weekend when the majority of sales occur.

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.

3. Look at the Sample Application on our website.

Will my application be saved online?
Yes, although we still recommend that you save a copy of your application as a Word document so that you can reference it easily in the future.

How will I know if my application has been granted funding?
Whether or not your application has been awarded funding, you will be notified by e-mail on or before the appropriate notification date.

What do I have to do if my group receives an undergraduate Action Research grant?
You must use the UCIRA logo in all printed and web material (flyers, posters, programs, websites etc.) related to your funded event. You are also required to complete the feedback form well as solicit feedback from activity participants if you can. You are also responsible for informing us of any major changes in your planned activity (i.e. change of date, time, venue, name).

Can make an appeal if my group doesn’t receive an undergraduate Action Research grant?
Sorry, the decision of the Student committee is final. We cannot consider appeals for funding but you are welcome to apply again in the next round of applications with a revised application.

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!

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
