The Digital Forest -


Grizedale Forest & Signal Film and Media with Art Fund support have an exciting new collaboration and opportunity for a digital artist to create a new, online participatory artwork inspired by Grizedale Forest in Cumbria - to connect people with nature through digital art
CLOSING DATE: MONDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2020

FEE: £3000

plus £1000 allowance for production, travel and accommodation

Brief and Application: https://signalfilmandmedia.com/thedigitalforest/

The Digital Forest commission will capture a truly unique moment in time as visitors slowly return to enjoy the endless forest trails and vast sense of space at Grizedale. It has never been more important to get out in the fresh air and the huge benefits to people’s mental and physical wellbeing are well known. This project has been designed so that underrepresented groups are very much part of that reconnection as we open up the forest. The commissioned artist will work alongside a local BAME/BIPOC community group to test innovative working practices aimed at helping develop artwork beyond the physical forest so that more people, from more backgrounds, can engage with art inspired by the forest.

Call for Artists - the Design (Re-)union Exhibition in Shenzhen, China

Call for Artists - the Design (Re-)union Exhibition in Shenzhen, China

 

Hello!

We are an international curatorial team that consists of art history  researchers and independent curators and are now pleased to announce open calls for the submission of our curatorial proposal to the Design Society Curates: 2020 Curating Design Plan. The winning proposal will be developed into an exhibition and presented in the Park View Gallery of the

Sea World Culture and Arts Center for three months. The exhibition period will be scheduled from April to June in 2021.

We hereby sincerely invite interested individuals or groups to express interests in serving as the exhibited artists that respond to the theme “Design (Re-)union ”.

As a model of China’s intelligent city,Shenzhen has its own special features in the development of culture and design. In the post-pandemic era, digital platforms have shown their key impact on the urban residents. It seems that the cities can manifest themselves through the screens of the mobile phone in people’s hands. Is the city a huge resource-consuming machine, or is it the reflection of human being as a collectivity? What will be the result of the competition between the flicking of our thumbs on the screens and the constant renovations of technologies? How can we redesign our platforms to be

people-friendly?

To confront a series of difficulties and challenges which are brought by an automatized society, such as the information explosion, the proletarianization of knowledge, we have raised various mentioned questions. These are some points of basic themes that we’re

interested in:

1.An understanding of the cities and design under the structure of the Anthropocene;

2.Rethinking the global mode of material, energy and resource circulation;

3.An understanding of the cultural context and design development of Shenzhen and the Grater Bay;

4.The relationship between humans and materials in a new post-pandemic social condition.

We hope that artists could bring their own creations, provide us some  tools for dreaming, redesign a particular, consistent and infinite “screen” in our mind. So that it would form the collective memory, complete the procedure of socialization and trans-individualization. Our final objective is to construct an new intelligent city and in that kind of city we could realize the real inter-connection between each of the individuals, between the people and the inorganic/organic materials, animals and also plants, ultimately to reverse the trend of the “entropy increasing”.

 

Exhibits Requirements

1. There is no limit for the art category or form but please accord with requirements of the site. (send email to us and we could send you the information of the site)

2. The exhibition and exhibits need to be able to be displayed in good condition for the full duration of the three-month exhibition period.

3. Selected artists will be invited to the installation and the opening ceremony. The transporting costs will be included.

 

Submission Requirements

1. Image and description of your works (each within 200 words);

2. Artist Profile (within 200 words)

Please send the above materials with the subject name: Name+2020 Curating Design Plan to entropyart28 [op] gmail [punt] com

 

Application Deadline

October, 10 th (12:00 AM, Saturday, midnight: end of the day 10 th October – GMT+8)

 

If you have any questions about this exhibition, please don´t hesitate to send us an email to ask. Thanks!
