Soul Beginnings - an exhibition of queer and non-binary Middle Eastern, North African and Arab artists
OPEN CALL: SOUL BEGINNINGS
Soul Beginnings is an exhibition that will provide a platform for queer and non-binary contemporary artists from Middle Eastern, North African and Arab backgrounds living in the UK to showcase their artwork and establish their names within the British contemporary art scene.
The concept for Soul Beginnings came to life when contemporary artist Sarah Gaafar, who is a queer individual with Egyptian heritage, felt frustrated and underrepresented by the lack of exposure of queer and non-binary MENA artists. During many years of research, Gaafar attempted to find artists of these backgrounds, but was always unsuccessful – with Soul Beginnings, queer and non-binary UK-based MENA artists will finally be able to find themselves on the British contemporary art world map.
There is no running theme through Soul Beginnings – artists will have the freedom to submit any work they choose, as the exhibition will exist to promote the marginalised voices of the queer and non-binary MENA community in the UK. What connects the works will be the community the artists create in.
Soul Beginnings will take place in London in late 2018 – early 2019 (exact dates still to be confirmed). All art disciplines and mediums will be taken into consideration. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
To submit your work for consideration to Soul Beginnings, or if you have any questions about the exhibition, please send any questions and your portfolio and/or website, along with your artist CV and a short biography, to soulbeginningsexhibition [op] gmail [punt] com. Artists will be notified by email if they have been chosen.

London Art Biennale 2019
The London Art Biennale 2019 is now open for artist submissions. Held at the Chelsea Old Town Hall, previous editions of this event have seen 120 artists from 50 nations around the world brought together in this fantastic event that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Curated by Gagliardi Gallery in association with the Chianciano Art Museum, artists are selected purely on the basis of their talent. The first 50 accepted artists will also take part in a second group exhibition later in the year at the Gagliardi Gallery, which has been selling art on the King’s Road in the heart of London for 40 years. The London Art Biennale will run from 22nd May to 26th May 2019 and during this time artists will also enjoy a variety of events which have previously included cocktail parties, theatre trips and boat rides through London. Each year the London Art Biennale hosts a renowned Charity Auction which has sold works by artists such as Andy Warhol and the money raised has been presented to the selected charities by the Mayors of Kensington and Chelsea; Councillor Christopher Buckmaster, Councillor Mrs Maighread Condon-Simmonds and Councillor Elizabeth Rutherford. The Biennale is an excellent way for artists both experienced and emerging to showcase their work while also building a strong network within the art industry. Applications are now open.

Odesa Photo Days Open Call 2019
It took a while for Odesa Photo Days festival team to come up with the theme for 2019. We’ve decided initially that we want to focus on the process of creating illusions and artificial realities, fakes and manipulations on the internet and election campaigns, in media and everyday life. We do not intend to criticize things and events related to the times of new media technologies and relationship development, but plan to emphasize the versatility of reality and its perception. It all depends on a context and standpoint, from which one or another artificially created phenomenon is regarded. As always, Odesa Photo Days is looking for standpoints from all over the world.
“Photography appeared in the middle of XIX century as a result of a deep verity crisis and loss of trust, that affected representation tools back then – text and drawing, that depended too much on handicraft skills and people’s subjectivity. When photography is discovered, the print and machine renew the belief in imitation and representation. Several decades later, during another verity crisis, happened the devaluation of a photography as a document and revaluation of expression” – says Andre Rouille, French photography theorist. The process of expression starts to depend on perception conditions, realization context of shooting and point of view on portrayed reality.
Naturally, a photo is not a document, but every separate image has a documental value, which isn’t necessarily fixed and absolute in perception.
“Standpoint” exposition is a combination of authors’ visions of the versatility of the world and multiple ways for comprehending reality. We accept photo series of any stylistics: documentary, reportage, fiction, fantasies. We prioritize the author’s story and originality, expression integrity.
Terms of participation
Each author can only submit one photo series for the contest.
PDF format, maximum pages – 10, number of pictures – unlimited, a short text describing the series & installation proposal (tech requirements).
Works and payment confirmation send to thephotodays [op] gmail [punt] com
The deadline for accepting applications is December 16, 2018.
The results will be announced in January 2019.
You can make a bank transfer through PayPal (euro) or PrivatBank (uah) card number 5169 3305 1242 6013 (it is necessary to fill in the purpose of payment field: «Open call Last name_First name_Country»)
