Translucent Performance: Open Call
Translucent is an artist-led event of performance / live art, which will take place in the weekend 15,16 &17 March 2019 in Hackney, London. We are providing platform to trans*, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists.
We are interested to show work from trans*, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists that begins with the experience of a non-normative gender identity but does not stay there. Instead, it expands to themes of love, desire, anxiety, social structures, planetary issues, boundaries (physical and mental), ways of living, survival, the now and the future and so on. We welcome work that seeks to communicate with the audiences, at an emotional, conceptual, political or spiritual level.

FLUXUS2019 CALL FOR WORKS
We’re looking for submissions of works that are inspired by, directly relate to or identify with the Fluxus tradition. The project hopes to see where Fluxus and its influence exist today.
Highlighting the relevance and legacy of an often overlooked part of art history, in the later half of 2019 we will tour as many of the submitted works as possible.
Below are some principles which can be used as guidelines for your work:
¥ Fluxus is an attitude - It is not a movement or a style.
¥ Fluxus is intermedia - Fluxus creators like to see what happens when different media intersect.
¥ Fluxus works are simple - The art is small, the texts are short, and the performances are brief.
¥ Fluxus is fun - Humour has always been an important element in Fluxus.
All works submitted must follow the Event Score format and fit on an A5 postcard.
All works must have been written in 2019.
Deadline for submissions: Midday 29th April 2019
There is no limit to the number of submissions by any one artist. The work must be sent as a pdf.
Please send submissions and any questions to newCELF [op] gmail [punt] com

Bridgette Mayer Art Advisors in collaboration with The Executive Committee of The Bower is seeking to commission professional artist/sculptor and or artist teams to design, fabricate and oversee fabrication and install permanent site-specific sculptures or permanent land art installations as part of its launch of its Phase I Sculpture Park and Gardens.
THE BOWER: SCULPTURE PARK AND GARDENS is located in Shermans Dale, PA (30 minutes outside of Harrisburg, PA)
The location is a private property that will be turned into a public sculpture park and gardens. The future plans also include an artist studio, an artist residency program, possible gallery/exhibition space and public programming with various museums and collecting groups.
There are meadow, garden and woodland settings on the property where the commissioned sculptures and projects would be placed. It is the Owners vision to curate an array of sculptural works, both large scale and intimate, that present visual interest from multiple perspectives. The works shall be designed to complement, enhance or provide interesting contrast within the natural setting. The construction shall be durable to withstand the changing seasons and weather elements and also shall be safe for interaction by visitors.
Chosen artwork will be required to withstand a high-traffic, unmonitored outdoor environment with very limited maintenance. Artists should take into consideration the possibility of adverse weather conditions, the wellbeing of pedestrian traffic passing by and through the site and the safety of the audience.
The Owners are developing “The Bower: Sculpture Park and Gardens”, a rural setting, garden and sculpture park located on their 36-acre wooded and meadow site along the northern slope of the Appalachian Mountains in Perry County, Pennsylvania Additional photos and documentation can be found on their Instagram site “@gardenbower”.
“The Bower: Sculpture Park and Gardens” will serve as their primary residence, event setting for non-profit organizations and a nature and art education center. This project is a legacy project they are undertaking to support emerging & established artists, and to create a viable sculpture park that will educate and inspire the general public.
Approximately 5-10 finalists will be chosen from the pool of applicants (Following the RFP stage listed in the schedule below), those finalists will be provided an honorarium up to $1500.00* to work with Bridgette Mayer Art Advisors and feedback from the Executive Committee to develop a final proposal for the artwork. The chosen artists/teams will then be commissioned to finalize design, fabricate, ship and install the artwork.
Artists may utilize imported materials of their choosing or landforming, stone, wood or other organics from the natural setting.
*For artists wishing to submit already fabricated scultpure works, they can do so for consideration, however please note if a work is selected that is already fabricated, an honorarium will not be provided in this instance.
*(Please note BMAA and Executive Committee will discern amount of honorarium to be given out based on potential travel and or other expenses of the particular applicant and an amount of up to $1500.00 will be awarded).
Total project budget is approximately $10K-30K per artist or artist team and the amount awarded will be dependent on the proposed project. It is inclusive of all costs such as artist’s fees, fabrication, travel, and installation time and effort. A separate shipping budget should also be proposed. Sculpture foundation, lighting, hardscape and landscaping requirements will be determined in collaboration with the Owners and will be addressed outside the budget established for the artwork.

The Game │Call for exhibition
Call for Exhibition │Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design
Take part in the Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. August 2019
FREE ENTRY Artists are invited to submit 1 to 3 artworks addressing the theme
Since ancient times the concept of "game" has been taken on by countless philosophers, artists and writers, pouring into it a philosophical and conceptual value, as demonstrated by the writings of Aristotle, as well as those of Schiller, Kant and Huizinga.
Kant takes up the founding element of freedom in the game and associates it with the aesthetics where the judgment of taste is based on the "free play of our cognitive faculties" of the imagination and the intellect. Or again, Johan Huizinga can be considered as one of the major theoreticians of the game, the theme at the center of his work is Homo Ludens, which assigns to the play activity of man the driving force of art and science.
No less are the authors of the art world who bear witness to the interest in the subject.
Artists, photographers and visual designers are invited to propose works that address the theme of the game in a new perspective, which reconsiders the theme through aspects that mark the contemporary: globalization, new interactive media, gambling addiction, etc.
