International Online Exhibit "Translucent Souls"

Art Mums United, a global platform celebrating womxn creatives is excited to announce a call for art for an international online exhibit “TRANSLUCENT SOULS” curated by Ekaterina Popova!


“Translucent Souls” are about visual artists telling their stories. We use words, but often the most important things remain unspoken. They are transferred onto a canvas, paper, photograph. They are taking shape in a sculpture or installation. 


But can you really see the soul of an artist? Stay silent, watch closely and enter our world. 


This online exhibit is a celebration of our abilities to express all while saying nothing. 


About the guest curator:

Ekaterina Popova is an artist, writer, coach, the founder of Create! Magazine. Kat loves discovering and supporting new artists, sharing her artworld experiences, and chatting with like-minded creatives on the podcast The Create! Podcast. 


Ekaterina Popova was born in Vladimir, Russia. After moving to the United States, she fell in love with painting and received a BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including The Painting Center in New York, The Trenton City Museum, Delaware Contemporary, The Boxheart Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery, and more.


Popova has been featured in multiple blogs and publications, including Aesthetica, The Jealous Curator, DPI Magazine, Friend of The Artist, Iceview, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.


Ekaterina attended several residencies, including at Centre Pompadour in Abbeville, France, NES Residency in Iceland, the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts in Greece.


Ekaterina Popova works out of her studio in Philadelphia, PA, and is represented by DECORAZON Gallery.


*All selected artists will be featured on the blog of Create! Magazine.

Festival Opera Prima Call for entries 2021

Selection of performances for Opera Prima Festival XVII Rovigo, 05 / 12 september 2021


The call is opened to single artists or emerging and independent professional companies that work with professional purposes in the field of contemporary theatre, dance and performing arts.




This call for entries is opened to national and international groups or artists that practice experimental theatre.
EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE is the proposal of a work that really experiments with the dramaturgy (interpreted as scenic composition), the actor, the spectator and the scenic space.
In other words, experimental theatre is all that unconventional theatre pursuing:
the autonomy of scenic language from a written play; the redefinition of the scenic space; the reformulation of the role and the gaze of the spectator; an original actors' training; a link that connects the actors to the project of the company.



The call is opened to Italian and international individuals or groups of professional theatre and performing arts, structured in any legal form that allows them to fulfill the administrative and bureaucratic practices necessary to realize their performance.
Only artistic projects that realize an experimentation with scenic languages, according to the points mentioned above, are eligible for selection. Amateur works, drama theater and performances of entertainment won’t be selected.

The Festival commission selects both original works that have not been yet performed, as well as works that have already debut, but which have not had an adequate circulation and / or visibility. It is advisable to submit works no longer than 60 minutes.



Submissions have to include:

Artistic curriculum of the company or of the artist;

Artistic form and technical specifications of the performance;

link to the full video of the performance (if the proposal consists on a debut, link to previous works). Video material has to be viewed directly online (by a link) and they mustn’t be downloaded (no wetransfer, google drive, etc.). Other ways of sending materials are not accepted.

Each group or individuals can submit only one proposal.

The application (with video links) has to be sent by e-mail to: operaprimafestival [op] gmail [punt] com writing on the object of the mail “Submission to Festival Opera Prima 2021” by 12.00 am of the 28th March 2021.
We do not accept other ways of sending materials.
Participants authorize, pursuant to Law 196/2003 and to GDPR - European Regulation no. 2016/679, the processing of personal data and the use of the sent informations for all the purposes related to the announcement.



The selection of the performances is entrusted to the unquestionable judgment of the artistic direction of the Festival.
By submitting their candidacy, participants authorize the use of sent images for the communication and publications related to the initiative.



The contact person of the selected projects is going to be contacted by Association Festival Opera Prima once the selection process has been completed.



The selected performances are going to be included in the 2021 edition of Festival Opera Prima.
All expenses and practices concerning organization, communication, staff, promotion of the event will be in charge of the organization of the Festival.
At each selected company will be paid, after the presentation of an invoice, a fee that has to be agreed and will be guaranteed the possibility of lodging at an affiliated guest house (just for the people working in the performance).



All the performances are going to be realized in Rovigo inside the venues used by the Festival from the 05th to the 12th September 2021. It is possible to realize performances also in unconventional locations and outdoor. The artistic direction can ask to the selected company to realize more replies of the performance.

We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival.

For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. 

This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. 

What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people?

When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful?

We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that changes its meaning and capacities depending on the context in which it resides.

As an accompanying festival program, the multimedia exhibition will aim to create a special sensory experience that will explore and enrich the subject of the body, challenging our ideas of corporeality and questioning the limits and the capacities of bodies through their constant and fluid interactions with the environment. 

We are inviting artists to submit photographs, GIF animations, video art, or any other form of digital artwork (video games, websites, applications, etc.) that deal with the subject of the body in the broadest sense. We welcome various perspectives, from conceptual to intimate approaches. 

The deadline for application is May 1st, 2021. 


– submissions are made via google form on the link

– submitted artwork must be original

– one person can submit a maximum of two artworks or one artwork series 

– the deadline for application is May 1st, 2021

– GIF animations must be looped in high resolution, profile H.264, minimal resolution 1920×1080, audio 16-bit resolution, stereo, 48000 Hz; up to 30 seconds of duration; with or without sound. 

– Video art must be up to 5 minutes in duration, high resolution, profile H.264, minimal resolution 1920×1080, audio 16-bit resolution, stereo, 48000 Hz; with or without sound. 

– Photography must be in minimal resolution 300 dpi

– Other digital work (video games, websites, applications, etc.) – no propositions

– Awards: no compensation; however, you retain ownership and will be credited for accepted work

Call to Artists Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon

You are invited to submit works to an innovative, multi-media exhibition on the theme of southern resident orca and Chinook salmon co-recovery. Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon is the culminating project in a series of orca-salmon co/recovery projects created collaboratively by non-profit organizations Creature Conserve and the Endangered Species Coalition. Visual artists, writers, and audio-video artists are invited and eligible to contribute works for consideration. The exhibition will take place in the New Media and Atrium Galleries at Jack Straw Cultural Center in Seattle, WA. Selected works will be displayed in a multimedia exhibition during the month of June, 2021, Orca Month.


Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon asks creatives to reimagine a future for our region, one where southern resident orca and salmon are once again thriving species. A future where Chinook and our other salmon species are able to navigate a free-flowing Snake River; where southern resident orca have enough Chinook salmon to eat; where reductions to pollutants address harmful accumulations of toxins in orca and salmon; and where vessel noise reductions improve the ability of orca to echolocate for salmon. This show invites artists, writers, and audio-visual creators to examine the science of orca-salmon co/recovery, to understand how and why these animals are imperiled, and to apply this cross-disciplinary collaborative model to an innovative exhibition centered on the co/recovery of orca and salmon.
