Reclaim Award

// Advertising out – Art in! Billboards become exhibition spaces //


The Reclaim Kollektiv organizes an international award that shows art in the public space. Where usually cruises, cars or detergents find large places to shine, we claim art. Billboards become exhibition surfaces. Billboards are rented and made available to artists as exhibition surfaces. Started in 2019, this year's ReclaimAward takes place in Cologne from 16- 26 June.


// The city as public museum! //

 

The winners will exhibit their works in the form of 18/1 posters on billboards rented in a central location, for the duration of 10 days. Artists from all fields and all countries are welcome to participate in the competition.


Apply now with your artwork. The OPEN CALL is on until April, 26. For your application, follow the link: www.reclaim-award.org/en/application

Self-Portraits vs. Self-Isolation

I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.

-Frida Kahlo

 

Call for Artists: Corona Portrait Project

 

Can't stop reading the news? Exhibitions been cancelled? Laid-off, hours cut back, not even sure what's happening because everything is different today?

 

Be part of an online self-portrait exhibition.  Read the guidelines and submission instructions carefully at coronaportrait.com, and then submit a high quality jpeg image.  No entry fee.

 

The future is uncertain.  Right now, the purpose of the Corona Portrait Project is to create and connect.

 

 What is a portrait?

A portrait includes the face and seeks to display the likeness, personality, and mood of the subject. A portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image.  The subject is often looking directly at the painter or photographer in order to best engage the viewer.    

           ~adapted from wiki “Portrait”

 Use the above as a guideline. A self-portrait is created by the artist with themselves as the subject.

 

The impetus for this project is community building, highlighting artists impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, and reflecting on individual identity.  It is assumed that most people may have limited access to equipment and other resources right now.  Get creative, be thoughtful, and have fun.

 

By submitting an image you grant unlimited and irrevocable license for the project curator to display/reproduce/modify your image, declare that you are the sole creator and owner of the work, and acknowledge and agree that you will not be paid for this submission now or in the future.  You otherwise retain copyright of the image and may display it elsewhere freely.

 

Source artwork may be 2d or 3d as long as it is appropriately represented in a high quality photograph. International applicants welcome. The project curator reserves sole discretion in acceptance of submissions.  Submission guidelines maybe changed/adapted at any time by the curator, without notice.  Inquiries and communication unrelated to self-portrait submissions may not be answered due to time constraints.

 

To submit a self-portrait for consideration include:

     Full name of the artist, location (city/state/nation), Date of completion (Day/Month/Year).

     Jpeg as email attachment: image of self-portrait, file named: lastname_firstname_SP, file size 300dpi and between 2mb-6mb.

    Send in a single email to: self [op] coronaportrait [punt] com

 

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis, don't wait to submit.

Wassaic Project 2020 Haunted Mill Open Call

Applications are run through our Slideroom portal: https://wassaicproject.slideroom.com/#/Login

 

The Wassaic Project seeks artists to participate in the Haunted Mill on October 31, 2020, our annual, one-night-only Halloween event in the hamlet of Wassaic. Artists transform the floors of Maxon Mills into a PG-13 haunted house, and throughout the event we host family-friendly hayrides, games, and performances.

 

We accept three types of proposals for the Haunted Mill: site-specific installations in Maxon Mills, outdoor installations, and performances. 

 

For site-specific installations in Maxon Mills and outdoor installations:

Artists will have complete creative control over their installation, as long as they keep their work PG-13. We want artists who are excited to participate and get weird, as well as artists who are self-directed and independent with their projects and vision. Wassaic Project offers housing in one of our residency houses for 1 – 4 weeks between October 2 and November 2, 2020, private studio space in Maxon Mills, additional studio space in Luther Barn, and full access to our wood shop and print shop. Artists interested in marking site-specific work for the exhibition should apply regardless of whether or not they are interested or able to be in residence in October. We will offer a modest honorarium to participating artists and artistic teams.

 

For performances:

Please explain how the piece will look or function. If your work is time-based or or has video documentation, you may also link to media from YouTube, Vimeo and SoundCloud.

Beyond Walls' Artist Call: 2020 Street Art Tour

Beyond Walls is dedicated to strengthening communities by activating spaces. Since our inaugural street art festival in 2017, we've brought 65+ international, regional and local artists together to work in cities across Massachusetts (USA). The street art produced during these festivals has promoted stronger, more vibrant and inclusive communities — which is exactly what we need right now in the face of COVID-19.

 

Beyond Walls continues to plan our 2020 Street Art Tour across four New England cities, and we’re aiming for late summer dates (although safety is paramount and timelines need to be flexible.) We’re preparing various ways to involve our communities (even in the case of extended social distancing) and to support youth and families with new collaborative projects on deck. 

 

Interested in joining our Street Art Tour? We want to get to know you! Local, regional and international muralists and mixed-medium street artists are encouraged to apply.
