The Moth Art Prize 2020

All you have to do is submit a portfolio of images of 5–10 artworks – to include figurative or representational paintings, drawings (including mixed media) and original prints – to mothartprize [op] themothmagazine [punt] com.

Urgent issue of The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
Deadline: March 31, 2020
COVID-19 is an irrefutably global provocation that is currently reconfiguring nearly every aspect of life on Earth. The non-linear spread of the virus’ impact, which exceeds and differs from the rate of infection, has amplified and magnified already latent conditions of precarity, injustice, and inequality. It has been declared a pandemic, the etymology of which is pan + demos, meaning “all people,” but it is not affecting all people equally. These uncertain socio-political circumstances demand agile, dynamic, and multifaceted responses. In their recent book Now, the agents of The Invisible Committee call for us to generate desirable social and political worlds through an improvisatory tilt. They advocate for strategic action that cuts transversally across vertical hierarchies and horizontal networks—privileging neither, in favour of an “intelligence of the situation.” They encourage us to tilt our approaches to organizing in the face of urgent situations with good faith, careful attention, and decisive action.
Decisive and unprecedented actions are being implemented by individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments. Shared concern over the spread of COVID-19 has unsteadied and inverted our world. Accordingly, as a public gallery within a university we ask: how to acknowledge this pandemic as a “matter of concern,” while responding to its broad-ranging effects across our networks of artists, writers, and cultural workers as a “matter of care”? An urgent and provisional response comes in the form of TILTING, a special digital issue of the Blackwood’s publishing platform The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK). TILTING will index participants’ responses to this especially unstable moment and create expedient means for the Blackwood to support those who have been unmoored from their sources of financial resources.
This special issue, TILTING, seeks to take up themes that have animated the Blackwood’s program and mandate throughout the last several years: questions of connectivity, the challenges of public and private space, community and/in isolation; imperatives to re-structure modes and methodologies of care, including revaluing care work, confronting collective care responsibilities within colonial and capitalist structures, and engaging with the infrastructures, aesthetics, contestations, and radical possibilities of mutual aid; responses to the precarization of art, labour, and life; interest in what modes of knowledge production, circulation, and re-distribution are vital to us now, and how these networks might take new form. These urgencies continue to drive Blackwood programming (and this forthcoming publication), supporting and activating artists, curators, and writers who incite us to be responsive, critical, and answerable.
We recognize that time is tight, resources are scarce, and struggles are intense. As a university gallery with access to public funding and institutional supports, the Blackwood has responsibilities to our communities, employees, the university, and the future of the gallery. The temporary suspension of some of our operations has left us with a small but useful surplus of unspent funds. We will endeavor to maintain this special publishing initiative over the months to come in order to circulate perspectives on the crisis and to support artists and writers who have lost jobs, exhibition and publication contracts, and other sources of income. This publishing initiative evokes triage as one mode of doing in times of crisis.

Submissions should include name, contact information, and a brief (maximum 100-word) bio. Submissions of artist projects should include up to 10 jpg images (300 dpi) and a brief statement about the project (maximum 300 words). Written submissions should be a maximum of 1,500 words.

In this category, we are looking for films that build a film narrative through creative sound or music design, creating a powerful audio visual experience. This category is accepting fiction, animated, documentary and experimental films up to 60 min in length, produced after 1st of January 2015.

Call for Video Proposals: Day With(out) Art 2021
Visual AIDS invites artists and filmmakers to submit proposals for new video works to be produced and distributed to over 100 venues worldwide for Day With(out) Art 2021. Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over.
DEADLINE: April 26, 2020
Visual AIDS has organized Day With(out) Art every year since 1989, coordinating art museums, galleries, and nonprofits across the world to present programs in response to the AIDS crisis. Since 2015, Visual AIDS has commissioned short videos from artists and activists to be distributed and screened at over 100 venues worldwide on/around December 1, World AIDS Day.
For Day With(out) Art 2021, Visual AIDS is accepting proposals from artists and filmmakers for short video works reflecting the needs and experiences of long term survivors and people living with HIV. In particular, we are looking for proposals that address the ongoing HIV and AIDS epidemic in relation to:
- The global pharmaceutical industry, drug patents and pricing, the politics of drug distribution and access, and the prioritization of profits over cures
- The work of activists around the globe who have challenged treatment paradigms and created alternative systems of care and support
- The realities of living long term with HIV, including side effects of past and current medication, the difficulty of adherence and sustained care, and the impact of the epidemic on mental health
- The needs and priorities of people living with HIV at a moment when the conversation about AIDS has become focused on PrEP and prevention
Artists and filmmakers who are living with HIV are encouraged to apply.
We welcome proposals from both emerging and established artists in a range of forms, including documentary, narrative, and experimental. Collaborative proposals are also welcome.
Up to six selected artists will receive a $2,000 honorarium to produce a short video work (5–10 minutes) to be premiered at over 100 venues worldwide on December 1, 2021 for Day With(out) Art.
Visual AIDS will premiere these new video works at a marquee screening in New York City in addition to coordinating over 100 screenings at museums, universities, and arts organizations worldwide. Videos will be made available for free online viewing after December 1, 2021.
Proposals will be reviewed by a jury including AIDS activist Ivy Arce, filmmakers Jean Carlomusto and Thomas Allen Harris, and Mathew Rodriguez, associate editor at The Body.
Successful proposals will respond thoughtfully to the themes outlined above and demonstrate the artist’s ability to produce a final video by July 1, 2021. Artists will be expected to independently manage the production of their work while incorporating feedback from Visual AIDS staff throughout the process.
* Note: Information about the video program for Day With(out) Art 2020 has been announced here. This call for proposals is for Day With(out) Art 2021.
