Call for artists for #Trasparenze7 Urban Spaces (Modena, Italy)

Application deadline: December 22, 2019

 

 

We are looking for performances and interventions to be set in the Urban Spaces of Trasparenze Festival 7th Edition, which will take place in Modena in May 2019.

Submitted proposals must be suitable for extra-theatrical contexts. Please note that proposals specifically thought for conventional venues and then re-adapted for this event will not be taken into consideration.

Received proposals shall then be analysed by both Trasparenze Festival Staff and Konsulta – the group of young 16-30 spectators helping the Artistic Direction in defining the festival programme.

 

Where

 

The selected proposals will be included in #Trasparenze7 programme and preferably be collocated in the park of Via San Giovanni Bosco 150, Largo Murialdo and the Festival Area’s whereabouts.

Proposals for other urban spaces throughout the city will be evaluated.

Visit https://goo.gl/maps/GBZGAXwMrcQ2 to examine the Area Map and inspect the above-mentioned zone.

Artists and companies can participate by proposing either an already existing project or a project specifically created for Trasparenze Festival.

What Konsulta is looking for:

 

“When selecting the urban spaces projects, we first ask ourselves: “Will passersby stop to see it? Will curious people and neighbourhood residents try to interpret it in their own way?” This is why we’re looking for projects which are able to speak to everybody, regardless of their life conditions and level of education, capable of transforming any passerby into a spectator, maybe even into an active participant to the performance. We are therefore looking forward to seeing artistic projects with different sources of inspiration, in order to bring together, side by side, playful performances and more poetic ones. Interactivity is an equally important feature: we highly value performances and projects made to involve the audience directly, not only by the means of an actor (e.g. “M²”, Dynamis’ play, on stage during the 2018 edition), but also thanks to an original use of the scene and its media (as in “NuovoCinema500”, in 2016 edition).

 

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

 

In order to participate, you must send your application by e-mail to comunicazione [op] trasparenzefestival [punt] it no later than 22/12/2018. Please write “Proposal for #Trasparenze7 Urban Spaces” in the email subject line.

 

If the work you’re proposing is already in your repertory:

- link to the presentation of your proposal

- link to the video

 

If the work you’re proposing was specifically designed for Trasparenze:

- Description of the project

- link to video material of your repertory

- link to a presentation of your repertory

 

SELECTED PROPOSALS

The outcome of the selection will be notified by January 20, 2019.

The selected artists and companies will be offered an employment for Trasparenze Festival 7th Edition, on the terms agreed with the Artistic Direction.

Creative collaborations for Tricomics, the art magazine around cannabis culture

English>
OPEN CALL


We’re excited to open submissions for creative collaborations with the first cannabis culture creative magazine from Barcelona, Tricomics. The first issue is about time, and it’s a huuuge subject to travel through... the higher the better! The type of artwork you submit can consist of absolutely anything, including typography, infographics, photography, graphic novel, experimental or classic comic amongst others.

Guidelines:

Quantity: not more than 2 pages, but if you have longer projects we can talk about it.
Format: 17cm x 24cm
Language: visual, English, Spanish
Format: .tif 
Resolution: 1200 dpi line art or 300 dpi cmyk
Bleed: 5mm 
Please note to not use comic sans as we don’t like it :)

Don’t hesitate to write us all your questions… 
Ready? Send your submission here >>

tricomics420 [op] gmail [punt] com
more info about the project @Tricomics

Unfortunately, we cannot offer you any payment for participating. If we publish your artwork you’ll receive a 10 free copies of the issue and a Tricomics t-shirt by Rokka King.
At this date, that’s all we can offer. Hopefully, you’ll find being part of Tricomics an enjoyable experience. The copyright of your material will stay in your hands.

FINAL DATE 15TH JANUARY 2019

Deadline is round the corner!!! See u there!

------------> T like TIME 

The subject of next issue is Time. 
Once upon a time… but if time is an illusion, what is it and how do we perceive it? What is now and how long does it last? So, what is present and how is it connected to future and past? Is time infinite? Are we going faster than before and, step by step, approaching the end of time that, as the Mayan said, occurred in 2012? End of time as absolute end or “just” as shift of? …we don’t really know, or maybe we do… certainly, everything has its own rhythm of growth: an ant, a plant, an elephant… sometimes you have to wait for the bus or for your beloved under the storm without an umbrella; during summer time, when clocks go forward, you sleep an extra hour thus saving time; other times you just rush to work by bike in the city traffic… It’s thanks to time that we exist and can remember, allowing us to create ourselves through experiences. Or maybe is everything already written? What about time travel, is it possible? Was Sergei Krikalev the only man to travel forward in time (about 0,02 second in the future, wow! so long?) How does the use of cannabis affect the dilation of this ever-moving entity? Or is it only us traveling forward along a timeline, like on a solid and steel train track? What about the consistency of time? Consequently, what is space-time… and tesseract? Different dimensions at the same time? Sinchronicity? Multiverse or simply sleeping and dreaming the reality in the same moment…

Well, only a few words and questions that pop into our mind about this everlasting subject.
Take your time! Hopefully, you’ll get absolute inspiration in just a blink of an eye and design it in 10 minutes, or maybe not… what is important is that you can make it before 15th January 2019. And then to the new Tricomics issue! 

If you already have an artwork about Time, that’s ok! But we need something that has never been published and printed on paper before.

GOOD LUCK!

mas info sobre el projecto @Tricomics

Lamentablemente, no podemos ofrecerte nada de dinero para tu participación. Si publicamos tu trabajo, vas a recibir 10 copias del nùmero en que aparece y una camiseta Tricomics by Rokka King. Para ahora es todo lo que tenemos. Ojalá disfrutes formar parte de esta grande experiencia que es Tricomics. Los derechos de autor del material que nos envías quedan en tus manos. 

La fecha límite está justo a la esquina! Nos vemos allí!

T como Tiempo

El tema del próximo número va a ser el tiempo.
Érase una vez… pero si el tiempo es una ilusión ¿cómo lo percibimos? ¿Qué es ahora y cuánto dura? ¿Qué es el presente y cómo se relata al futuro y al pasado? ¿El tiempo es infinito? ¿Vamos siempre más rápido y, paso a paso, estamos alcanzando la fin del tiempo que, como dijeron los mayas, pasó en 2012? ¿Fin del tiempo como fin de todo o “solo” pasaje? …no lo sabemos, quizás sí… por cierto, todo tiene su ritmo de crecimiento: una hormiga, una planta, un elefante… a veces esperas al autobús o a tu pareja bajo la lluvia sin paraguas; en verano, con el cambio de horario, duermes una hora más y ganas un poco de tiempo; otras veces vas deprisa y corres en bici para ir al trabajo en el tráfico de la ciudad… Existimos gracias al tiempo que nos permite recordar nuestras experiencias a través de las cuales creamos nuestros seres. ¿O, quizás esté todo escrito ya...? ¿Existen los viajes en el tiempo? ¿Sergei Krikalev fue el único hombre a viajar en el futuro (0,02 segundos en adelante, ¡wow! ¿Así de tanto?)? Esta entidad en constante movimiento ¿cómo está afectada y dilatada por el uso del Cannabis? ¿O estamos viajando hacia adelante a lo largo de una línea temporal, como si fuéramos sobre vías ferroviarias de acero? ¿Cuál es la consistencia del tiempo? Y, de consecuencia, ¿qué son espacio-tiempo y tesseract? ¿Y la sincronicidad? ¿Multiverso o simplemente dormir y soñar la realidad al mismo tiempo?
Solo un par de palabras y preguntas que pasan por nuestras cabezas acerca de este tema interminable.

¡Tòmate tu tiempo! Ojalá tomes inspiración en un abrir y cerrar de ojos y diseñe todo en 10 minutos, quizás no.. lo importante es que nos envíes tu trabajo ante del 31 diciembre 2018. Y, luego, ¡bienvenido 2019, bienvenido primer número de Tricomics!
Si tienes hecho ya un trabajo sobre el tiempo, ¡está bien! Pero necesitamos algo que no haya sido nunca publicado o impreso en papel.

SUERTE!

PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE

PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE

 

How do we process our past, capture our present, and envision our future? For the artist, these questions can lead to a plethora of subjects and explorations. Anything and everything has a past, present, and future, and we want to see what you can make of it. We are looking for artists to show us a piece of your past, a captured moment that seems to embody your present, or your highest hopes or greatest fears for tomorrow.

 

Any combination of the three will be accepted, we just want the imagery to in some way tell us your story of beginning, middle and end.

INSPIRATION: Studies and Source

INSPIRATION:
Studies & Source

 

Art is a process. The condition under which we consume art is normally in the solitary state of the finished product. Where does art start? How can we trace backwards from this finalized piece and find the flash of inspiration that started it all? We want to see your process. Show us what inspires you, the words, songs, settings or scenarios which bring you to the point of creation. We want to exhibit this source material in the same manner in which we exhibit the final piece, showing the beginning and end in harmony. If its a poem, letter, song, tv show, movie, postcard, stranger on the bus...we want to know! Each work will be paired with the source of its creation, and there is no wrong answer!
