ART Habens 2016 - International Call for Artists, 6th Edition

For the 6th time ART Habens is inviting entries to find the most interesting emerging worldwide artists.

 

The 2016 edition will explore which roles artists take on as cultural producers, leveraging new tools to produce, distribute, build audiences for their work, inquiring into the boundaries between the different practices of new media.

In particular it will engage with artists dealing with process-driven changes in our society to produce their art projects: this competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists to work between the boundaries of Contemporary Art.

 

ART Habens aims to engage artists, curators and gallerists in conversation about the role of Art in contemporary society. Inspired by the worldwide art scene, we highlight that art is an essential element in our lives: ART Habens reserves a special place to explore these transformations; first, by acknowledging the energy and effort that goes into the creation of art, and second, by investigating the new life a work takes on as it is transferred from artist to world.

 

Accepted disciplines:

 

  • Painting
  • Mixed media
  • Video art
  • Installation
  • Performance
  • Fine Art Photography

1920C presents "Tough"

Girls have it tough.

& Girls have to be tough.

Tough is an event that celebrates strong ladies by bringing together womyn entrepreneurs and artists. The event will feature pop-up shops of womyn owned businesses. The exhibit will showcase the artists and what tough means to them.

Why Tough?

Firstly, It’s tough for womyn to get an education:

Fewer female are enrolled with primary schools than men.
Twice as many girls as boys will never start school.
More female than men are illiterate.
Yet, more female than men complete college, despite the struggle.

Secondly, It’s tough for womyn in the workplace:

Females Face a Gender Wage Gap Globally, Earning 77% of What Men Earn.
Females hold only 12% of the world’s board seats.
Females currently hold 24, or 4.8 percent of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies.

Since womyn face tough struggles they have to be tough in order to survive. When a womyn is being tough as a leader in the workplace to get ahead in her field, often times she’s considered a bitch. Then when a womyn is being too nice, “she is too weak.” So how is a womyn supposed to be?

Tough celebrates strong womyn, independent womyn, womyn sticking together, working womyn, womyn from different walks of life, womyn of different cultures, and womyn excelling in the world. 

This exhibition is a part of 1920C’s anniversary celebration. 1920C is a supportive coworking space for womyn entrepreneurs and creatives.

This event is helping support three nonprofits. 1920C will give part of the proceeds from the exhibition toShe’s The First that helps womyn in low-income communities have access to education and Kiva which give microloans to womyn to help them start and sustain their business. A portion also goes to support 1920C member, Pacific Atrocities Education.

Tough is not a synonym for bitchy. & womyn have it tough everyday.

BODIES+CITIES SKIN - Venice, Italy

It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo, is selecting all interesting photo works, experimental video-art works, paintings, installations and performance art works to include in the next 2016 exhibition:

BODIES+CITIES SKIN, international art exhibition of photography, video art, installation, painting and performance art, that will be hosted in Venice, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House Gallery, from May 28 to July 28, 2016.

BODIES+CITIES SKIN is the first appointment of BORDERS festival which will be organized in Venice at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House Gallery, in the months between May and November 2016, during the same period of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, with a rich program of different events until November 2016. We will give audience the possibility to have private meetings with artists, architects and designers, to meet them personally and share their art and experience. Each event will have a strong program of video art screenings and premiers, art residencies, talks, workshops, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances.

BODIES+CITIES SKIN – Human kind wants to wear his city like a second skin without borders or limits. City’s body is in constant evolution. It changes its skin and shows a renewed body. This mutation follows the direction of human being development and it is a clear and true statement of cities changing time. From borders as individual bodies and souls to boundaries of cities in which we live, each line delimitates a surface and could be the starting point to something new, undiscovered. Limits are everywhere, barriers keep us inside or outside spaces and societies. Their passing creates a crossover of identities and urban environment. The way we move, we relate to anything, to the world make us go beyond boundaries.

Selection is open to video art, photography, painting, sculpture/installation, art performance, experimental dance and design/architecture projects. Artists, architects, designers, photographers, video makers and performers are invited to submit their works and projects. To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video-art), links of videos/films/performances and pictures of artworks via e-mail to lucacurci@lucacurci.com

 
Deadline for applications is May 08, 2016 (11.59 PM of your local time).
