Call for Submissions

1. Call for artists, Arizona State University, deadline March 29

Recently, Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts opened a national call for a new fellowship called Practices for Change, which is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The idea of this fellowship is for ASU to support the advancement of individuals working to create change in non-arts systems (such as health, justice, transportation, housing, etc) across the country. It is a non-residency national fellowship that provides fellows ASU training, mentorship, and resources to adapt and utilize in their respective communities. We will also provide platforms to document, share, and SCALE their work.

5. Call for artists, International Human Rights Art Festival NYC, deadline June 1

New York City’s International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF) and Wild Project Theater issue a call for proposals for the third annual International Human Rights Art Festival, December 9-15 at the Wild Project, 195 E. 3rd Street, East Village, NY.  We are looking for performance pieces in all media by NYC-based artists, which are built around a social concern.  We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.  We believe that words spoken from the heart enter the heart, while words spoken from the mouth or out of anger or frustration, never get past the ears.

Please send a description of the work, links, resume and any other information which might be of help in our decision to this email. 

6. Call for Artist, deadline march 27 and April 8

Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) is a nomadic, intensive summer academy with shifting programs in contemporary critical theory. SFSIA stresses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between art and politics. SFSIA originated in Saas-Fee, Switzerland in 2015 and migrated to Berlin, Germany in 2016 where it is currently hosted by Spike Art Quarterly. In 2019, this additional program will be hosted by Performance Space New York.

The Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art was founded and is directed by Warren Neidich and is co-directed by Barry Schwabsky. Sarrita Hunn is the artistic coordinator. Building upon our past four year engagement with topics concerning estrangement, individuation, collectivity and art and politics in cognitive capitalism, Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art 2019 will focus upon states of consciousness.

Briefly put, the Archives & Performance Fellowship is a paid, year-long opportunity for four Fellows that follows the tradition of Wabanaki Guiding, connecting Native and non-Native people to place through experience, language, and story.

They will collaborate to create new work, inspired by their learning, that addresses ecological recovery and social justice.

8. Call for artist, Marlboro College, deadline April 8

The course is called Art Seminar and is intended to teach critiquing skills and professional practices. I’m not sure what either of those things are, so I decided to have the students jury an open call for solo exhibitions in our Drury Gallery.
