New Music USA Project Grants: Award Amount: up to $15,000
Sponsor Deadline: January 30, 2020
The Foundation’s approach to Project Grants is driven by two core convictions. First, that the best way to serve new music is to ask practitioners what they need rather than tell them what they should want. Second, that the process for requesting financial support should be simple and should help artists connect with audiences, not just funders. Applicants are asked to present their projects using the same language and media they would use to build public interest in their work. The Foundation’s goal is to make grantmaking less about grant writing, and focus instead on how artists naturally talk about their work. New Music USA is also passionate about adding value to the grants it gives and works to provide a platform for further exploration. The Foundation does this to build community around the artists served through promotion of projects through social media, email, and connections within the field.

The 36th Annual Boston University Graduate Symposium in the History of Art & Architecture: Environment: Awareness, Exchange, and Impact
Due: November 30, 2019
Conversations about the environment are a prominent and contentious aspect of life in the 21st century, but the environment has always been an omnipresent force. Serving both as a stage for human performance and as an active agent in shaping human actions, the environment permeates the consciousness and creative output of artists and architects, as well as influencing interactions with their works. The topic of “the Environment” serves as a nexus for discussions surrounding the natural, the man-made, the built, and the social, among others. The 36th Annual Boston University Graduate Symposium in the History of Art & Architecture invites submissions that consider the theme of “the Environment.” How have interactions with, and interpretations of, natural and man-made environments informed artistic and architectural work? How do various locations, identities, and political climates impact the production of art and architecture? Symposium Date: March 28, 2020

Between each movement is the Promenade that captures the (walking) viewer’s changing experience of the painting just seen and the expectation of the painting to come. This call requests work in any form that uses music as a point of departure to generate a response, challenge, variation, or remix across modes or mediums.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work.

Site:Brooklyn – Drawing, December 13, 2019- January 11, 2020
Deadline: October 21
Drawing has been radically transformed in the last 100 years, as countless artists reimagined the traditional concepts of drawing and expanded the medium’s definition beyond gesture and form. This expanded definition included mark-making that ventured off the paper, into multimedia, film, sculpture and much else. However, in recent years, many artists have returned to a more gestural and representational mode. In this new and dynamic tension between tradition and experimental visions, Site:Brooklyn is looking for works, across all mediums and processes, which showcase the diversity and range of drawing’s place in contemporary art. Juror: Olga Valle Tetkowski is currently deputy director at The Drawing Center in NYC.

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?

Material/Immaterial: The lives (and afterlives) of objects

Site:Brooklyn – GREEN, December 13, 2019- January 11, 2020
Deadline: October 22
Green is a complex color: a symbol of life, luck, and hope, but also disorder and greed. Until recently, green was a challenging color to produce. Not surprisingly, the color has been associated with all that is fluid and changing: childhood, love, and money. It was during the Romantic period green became the color of the natural environment. What does green mean today? Site:Brooklyn is looking for work, across all mediums and utilizing all processes, which engage with green. Juror: Eva Díaz is currently Associate Professor of Contemporary Art History at Pratt. Prior to coming to Pratt she taught at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, Sarah Lawrence College, and Parsons; she also worked as the curator at Art in General.

Lycoming College: National Juried Exhibition

Deadline: October 27
Lycoming College Art Gallery, located in Downtown Williamsport, Pennsylvania, is seeking submissions for their National Juried Exhibition, Blurred Expectations. Criminals! Subordinate! Uneducated! These are a few of many terms that are commonly associated with black people. This exhibition gives black artists an opportunity to rewrite the script that has been forced upon them by showing a side that is often ignored. Though many people do not agree with such associations, these stereotypes are still at the forefront of media and society which creates division within black communities and their multiethnic counterparts. This exhibition blurs the line between how black people are portrayed and who they truly are outside of their race. By focusing on the artistic interests of black artists, viewers not only reflect on the many forms that inspiration and creativity can take but challenge the false portrayals of black people in society. https://www.collegeart.org/jobs-and-opportunities/opportunities/listing/19406/

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.

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?
