Library of Congress: Innovator-in-Residence Program: Artistic Innovation, Creative Computing, Digital Humanities
Project Concept Paper Due Dates: Multiple -11/15/2019; 1/15/2020; 3/15/2020
We’ve established a broad Innovator-in-Residence Program to support innovative and creative uses of our collections that showcase how the Library relates to and enriches the work, life, and imagination of the American people. This competitive program seeks services of artists, journalists, researchers, teachers, and others willing to imagine and prototype examples of creative, innovative, and novel uses of Library of Congress digital collections in an artwork, visualization, application, or other publicly available tool, service, or exhibit. The Library has long inspired artists to create engaging, informative and fun pieces from the Library of Congress collections through artistic mediums of all kinds including musical and theatrical performances and films. An artistic innovation as defined here would require the IIR to interpret Library of Congress data sets or Library of Congress collections as data to create works of fine or applied art, a web-friendly approach to storytelling such as a video or podcast series, or an on-site pop-up visitor experience. Former Innovator in Residence Jer Thorp produced the podcast “Artist in the Archive” during his residency, exploring some of the treasures of American history we make available but also the bureaucratic and technical processes that enable this access. Thorp recorded Episode 4: The LIVE! Episode in front of a live audience. The show included a series of far-ranging conversations with Library curators including topics such as “poetic histories, eccentric 19th century artists, x-ray forensics and chaos theory” as well as a data performance.

material-immaterial
NEWCASTLE AND NORTHUMBRIA UNIVERSITIES, APRIL 1-3 2020
Deadline for submissions: Monday 21 October 2019
Recent work on matter, materiality, and materialisms has enriched the study of objects in the aesthetic, and more broadly, cultural spheres. Beyond formal considerations, artists have mined materials as complex, affective carriers of communication (as recent exhibitions of Bruegel, Hilma af Klint, Henry Moore, Ruth Asawa, and Doris Salcedo suggest). But what precisely is the relationship between medium and materiality, the latter of which Michael Ann Holly has called ‘the meeting of matter and imagination’? Panofsky wrote that the melancholy task of humanists ‘isn’t to arrest what would otherwise slip away but enliven what would otherwise remain dead’. How might we understand the powerful tug-of-war between tangible surface and the immaterial – psychological, emotional, and spiritual – that the ‘stuff’ of objects transmits?

Maryland Institute College of Art FULL BLEED: Artists and Designers
Deadline: January 1
Full Bleed, an annual print and online journal of art and design, seeks submissions for its fourth issue, forthcoming in Spring 2020. We publish criticism, belle lettres, artwork, design, illustration, fiction, poetry, and graphic essays. All contributors will receive modest honoraria for their work. For Issue Four, we are especially interested in submissions that critique, investigate, or rely on archives of various kinds. We seek new writing about artists working with, playing with, re-contextualizing, or elevating archival materials; art or design projects responsive to historical documents; and essays, fictions, and poetry related to the work of archiving. We would be excited to see submissions that critique the construction of narrative through objects and historical documents, or that concern private collecting, hoarding, simplifying, tidying, and the distinction between these activities. When does archiving become obsessive and pathological? What drives people to collect and organize certain objects? We would also welcome work that takes up digital archiving as a subject for rumination, that introduces us to intriguing new archives under development, or that dwells on the ethics and politics of archival practices. Are archives inherently conservative, limited, or futile? Are they treasure troves, haunted houses, or primers in the mistakes we don’t want to make again? What use are they in particular to artists and designers now?
