We invite artists to propose ideas for an ambitious and contemporary permanent artwork in Galway’s Eastside community in Ballybane and Doughiska. The budget is €10,000. The artist should submit under one of these themes; Cardiovascular research, soft and hard tissue regeneration, and biomaterials and the body. The chosen artist will work in CÚRAM laboratories and with the Eastside community to realise the project.

OPEN CALL @ East Village NYC

As a part of our annual emerging artist promotion project, MAGA NY is seeking submission for its open call program “when black swallows red” co-hosted with La Mama La Galleria, in East Village, NYC. Artists working in all media are welcomed to submit.

 

The theme comes from one of Mark Rothko’s remarks about his artistic concerns: “…(if) there is only one thing I fear in life, my friend: one day, the black will swallow the red.”

 

While people often believe there are metaphorical meanings behind it, the arcane statement is open for interpretation, as we welcome artists to explore the concepts of processing, oxidizing, coloring, decaying, migration, and transformation to decode, respond, reflect or re-contextualize this statement.

 

- On view: July 5th - July 10th (open reception: July 5th, 5:30 PM)
- Submission Deadline: June 25th
- Venue: La Mama La Galleria, 47 Great Jones St, New York, NY 10003
- please visit http://www.whenblackswallowsred.com for the details

 

The selection will be made on a rolling-base so we encourage you to submit early!

 

MAGA (Metropolitan Art Gallery Association) is a 501(c)(3) organization. We aim to facilitate the cultural and intellectual exchanges in contemporary art in the NYC metropolitan area through curatorial events, publications, and public exposure.

Open call for performers / dancers / musicians

 

My name is Mylan Hoezen and I’m a performance artist. Endurance is one of the main themes of my work and the duration of the performances allows a high state of consciousness to be reached by the performer. My work comes from a desire for harmony in a world that’s filled with noise. My performances always have a polarising nucleus: they are either highly energised or totally passive. 

 

I am currently a member of the Hamburger Community of Art at Roodkapje Rotterdam, working on a solo show which centers around a new performance piece.

 

This performance piece will be built from performance instructions that I previously used in my work, creating a choreography out of mindful movements performed by 5 individuals in a timeframe of approximately 3 hours. Next to movements, I want to integrate the use of various musical instruments, chanting in a choir and text, all culminating to a one night only experience. 

The work will be documented on film, at the end of August on various locations in Rotterdam. 

 

<img src="https://www.transartists.org/%3Ca%20href%3D"https://www.mylanhoezen.com/method/tumblr.jpg">https://www.mylanhoezen.com/method/tumblr.jpg">

Method (VR) (2018)

 

I’m looking for performers, dancers and musicians willing to experiment and create new forms of connections on stage. If you are just curious, you’re also welcome to send your information. There will be ten rehearsals for the piece and they will run mid July to September at Roodkapje Rotterdam.

If you want to be involved as a performer in this work, please send a CV, a paragraph of motivation and a link to previous work (if available) to mail [op] mylanhoezen [punt] com before Monday June 17th. Correspondence about the selection and possible audition dates will be done before June 30th via e-mail. All performers will be paid for their participation.

- Call for Exhibition -

Accepted media: Photography  

Take part in the Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. 2019

FREE ENTRY Photographers are invited to submit 1 to 3 shots addressing the theme

The photographers of the next exhibition will be interpreters of a photographic genre that inherits an important pictorial tradition: the Still Life.

The Still Life, represents the ideal mode through which the exposed inanimate objects give an expression of themselves, through the endless technique of shooting, enhancing their physical and symbolic qualities .The Still life today is a genre often used to  describe our lifestyle, our passions related to fashion, design, food culture. It's also used when promoting a commercial product, and above all in the artistic field, often recalling, albeit indirectly, the theme of vanitas when conveying concepts linked to our being in the world.
