Artists are invited to submit complete applications to Manifest's new Manifest Artist Residency program (MAR). Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis.
The program is open for application by any serious emerging or established artist, including recent graduates from college art programs. It will benefit Manifest's community by providing exposure to the often unseen working space and practices of artists, serving to eliminate some boundaries to contemporary artmaking which currently may divide the everyday public from the fine visual arts.
The ideal candidate for the award of the program may be working in any media or genre, but would also make reasonable use of the available life-drawing sessions even if this is ancillary activity to their primary work. Suitability for teaching will be considered, but will not be a primary factor in the selection process.

Please contact Alex Kleiman, Research Assistant, at email@example.com or +1-212-254-8200 x126 with information on any publications, photographs, videos, and/or other textual documentation relating to any official or unofficial do it exhibitions you were involved in or organized.
ICI will continue accepting documentation on various do it iterations through April 2, 2012.
ICI is launching a call for documentation of do it exhibitions done spontaneously, residentially, on a small scale or a large scale—essentially any and all material from a realization of do it that may have been excluded from the official exhibition history. ICI and Obrist are aware that many independent and little-known iterations of the exhibition have taken place, and as the do-it-yourself ethos forms the foundation of the exhibition’s premise, material on these more impromptu or makeshift shows is of great import to the exhibition at large.
do it began in 1993 with a discussion in Paris between the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier with Obrist about whether an exhibition could be made from a series of instructions: How would an artist’s work be transformed if others made the artwork? To see what would happen, they invited 13 artists to send instructions, which were then translated into 9 different languages and circulated as a book.

Recognizing there are few opportunities for professionals to receive practical training and guidance while also holding down a job, the Curatorial Intensive is targeted toward self-motivated individuals—working independently or in institutions—who would benefit from a week of intensive conversations around the issues and questions that regularly arise for curators. These range from the pragmatics of developing an exhibition and building working relationships with artists to the theoretical aspects of understanding how to turn a concept into a project and effectively communicate ideas.
Focusing on new models for curating and exhibition development, ICI’s annual summer Curatorial Intensive offers curators the opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world and share ideas on how to push the parameters of their practice.
Program Dates: July 8–17
Independent Curators International (ICI) produces exhibitions, events, publications, and training opportunities for diverse audiences around the world. A catalyst for independent thinking, ICI connects emerging and established curators, artists, and institutions, to forge international networks and generate new forms of collaboration. Working across disciplines and historical precedents, the organization is a hub that provides access to the people, ideas, and practices that are key to current developments in the field, inspiring fresh ways of seeing and contextualizing contemporary art.
The event is thus composed of a workshop and an exhibition, the latter displaying materials from the secret police files set along individual cases and medial series. Recorded interviews with people who have seen their files will constitute the life-story counterpart to the operative patchwork of the secret police. The workshop and the exhibition are organized by a team of university affiliated or individual researchers, working within the “Platforma” project supported by the National Museum of Contemporary Art (Bucharest) and collaborating with the National Council for the Study of Securitate Archives (CNSAS) and National University of Arts Bucharest (UNAB).
The event will be held in Romanian and English

With the research and visual production of their Id, Ego, and Superego projects, Hither Yon explores methods of collaborative design. Through drawing in a range of scales, the discourse of personal aesthetics and individual intentions become grounded in a single "object," one made through the processes of debate, interpretation, compromise, and metamorphoses. In the end, the ever-present dialogue of the undergone series of steps is presented as a very specific moment between the distinct individuals.
Hither Yon's workshop will reenact the collective's methodology, only now with the involvement of individuals from multiple disciplines. The participants will be provided with a kit of parts to go through those steps, concocting their own egos. They will then use those inventions to aid us in the development of a new city, one produced with their strong personal inclinations.

Seminars and workshops will help the group reflect on the shift from a manufacturing to service economy in developed countries as well as new definitions of labor that have extended beyond all national boundaries.
SOMA Summer participants will revisit the legacy of conceptual art as a mode of production, the role of craft in contemporary art practices, and the pertinency of learning technical skills in art education. The group will also explore the possibilities of alternative economies, and look closely at the ways in which artists participate in decentralized, global networks of production.

Creatively work with the physical archive
Work on productions of AIR Antwerpen
Work on the publication of AIR Antwerpen

AIR Antwerpen is an international residence project for artists. In the former lockman's residence the project has obtained a fabulous post industrial location. It is located on the border between the old and the new harbour, close to the city centre.
AIR Antwerpen is more than a receptive workplace for artists from abroad. The organisation wishes to profile itself as a breeding ground for contemporary art, a place where art is developed and where artistic research is pursued.
AIR Antwerpen offers no exhibition platform for visual arts as such. The organisation is active within the national and international visual arts network and undertakes collaborative ventures which can result in research oriented co-productions.
Thanks to its setting in a city with a rich cultural history and an effervescent contemporary art scene, AIR Antwerpen is capable of initiating a spontaneous dialogue between past and present, and the local and global.
The theme of the festival “Visual Poetry” is synchronous to the property of Perm being a “Library capital” of the Perm region in 2012. Artists will deploy the visual equivalents of poetry on a multimater concrete fences. Projects will focus on the expression of the poetic text – rhythm, structure and texture of the verse. Long stories for Perm will be consisted of a visual image of the text, of the relationship of artists to the verse, word, letter as to the image. The theme of the festival is a challenge for the participants, not only because the artistic projects should be formulated for extremely non- standart elongated horizontal format of concrete fences, encircling the industrial facilities in Perm, but also because the art projects will have to coexist and resist in spontaneous and agressive in many ways grafic and font environment of the city (visual identics and navigation, outdoor adverizements, running lines, signs).

We are looking for artists and proposals for a series of inter-disciplinary events, interventions, walks and tours that explore alternative forms of tourism (or respond to existing processes and hierarchies). Ideas can take the form of DIY toolkits for tourists to use on their own initiative, the creation of alternative infrastructure, or guided/performed events in which an artist or facilitator is actively involved. We are open to ideas that are ready to go and easy to facilitate (logistically and financially), and ideas that would require a period of on-site research and conceptual development (although we will only be able to invite a limited number of artists to Stuttgart). Projects should respond in some way to the curatorial focus outlined below (directly or indirectly). We also welcome self-reflective proposals that explore the problematic of our own intentions.
Each project will receive a minimum of between 100 and 500 Euros plus expenses. Artists that need time to develop their ideas will be invited to Stuttgart in May and June. Projects will be presented/enacted in Stuttgart between June 2012 and June 2013. A new website will document and bring together all of the selected activities.
Please send proposals, questions and expressions of interest to kaspar(@)treacletheatre.co.uk
Curatorial focus for 2012/2013
German version (with additional details):
Last year's website:
We are looking for art projects that fit one of the Lab’s three areas of focus: wearable technology, augmented reality and ecology but we are also open to proposals within your personal field of interest. Your project should be conceptually sound and outline a concrete, realistic plan. Your proposal’s chance of being selected will be directly proportional to its quality.
Each selected artist participates in an intense working period during July and August, in which he or she develops a project from concept to artwork, ready for presentation at a public event. We schedule the residencies to overlap as much as possible so that we can foster an active working atmosphere in the Lab and stimulate interaction between artists. The Summer Sessions will conclude with Test_Lab presentations in Rotterdam and within an international festival context. v

The theme of the festival “Visual Poetry” is synchronous to the property of Perm being a “Library capital” of the Perm region in 2012.

'Post-anarchism decentralizes the political movement, motions toward tactical rather than strategic action, brings anarchist thought into touch with a range of influences …and provides the foundation for a thousand lines of flight' (Duane Rouselle, 2011)
In 2003, David Graeber wrote about 'new anarchism' as a meshing of practice and theory which embraced horizontalist, open-ended experimental approaches to revolutionary vision and strategies. In this panel stream we ask – what does a post-anarchist art practice look like? What does it sound like? How and where does it function? We invite – and bring together - theorists and practitioners to offer contributions which explore these questions through discourse, practice, performance or intervention, experimentally, practically, gesturally, impossibly.

In the proposed conference we seek to examine the interests and influences which contributed to the development of Socialist Realism as a diverse and contested field of art from the 1930s to the 1980s. Participants will be invited to focus on aspects of Socialist Realist fine art production, evaluation and consumption in order to consider the ways in which artistic
conventions of pictorial representation were established, adapted and transformed to reflect the changing nature of the Soviet project. This approach will facilitate a shift away from the tendency to draw conclusions about Socialist Realism based on a limited number of canonical works of art and acclaimed artists, and will encourage a reappraisal of the diversity and
originality of creative output in its formal, stylistic and geographical variations.

In year 2000 United Nations declared 20th of June as World Refugee Day. To bring the WRD 2012 to the attention of domestic and international audiences, Slovene Philanthropy and Zavod Voluntariat are preparing to organize the third edition of the Festival of Migrant Film »On the Road« (FMF 2012, located in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia) which aims to highlight the best available international film and video products dedicated to migrations, asylum and refugees.
The festival focuses and is dedicated to all migrants who, for a number of reasons, are forced to leave their homes and search for an opportunity to create a decent life for themselves and for their families outside of their home community. In the 21st century, we are still experiencing some familiar causes for (forced) migrations, as well as “discovering” some new ones.

This conference seeks to appraise the place and impact of globalisation on African media practice(s) and popular culture and how these have also participated in globalisation as a dialectical process for the construction of identity and re-invention of nationhood in Africa. In particular, the conference is interested in ways in which globalisation has engaged African media and popular culture as mediated processes through new media technologies and how they have in turn engaged globalisation. But the conference is also concerned with problematising the issues involved in the discourse on globalisation and its antinomies in relation to African media and popular culture. For instance, is globalisation an innocent, neutral phenomenon? Has globalisation fostered the dialogue or the clash of civilisations and cultures? Is it necessary for the enrichment of African media and popular culture?
This complex of issues will constitute the fulcrum of discussions during the conference. Submission of abstracts in 250-300 words is invited by 25 April 2012.

Curatorial practice as it emerged during the twentieth century is being extensively recast. The tremendous change in the status of the object, culture, the various disciplines, information and education, implies an inevitable transformation of the curator’s role and competences. A renewed interest for curatorial practice has recently emerged within the field of architecture.
For the second year the CCA offers two curatorial opportunities: the Young Curator Program and the Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Internships Program.
The Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Internships are designed to share the CCA’s expertise with students and recent graduates in design disciplines, arts and humanities. One or two selected candidates will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the CCA’s collection, exhibition, and research programs through a 6 to 9 month internship beginning in Fall 2012.

"The Dynamics of Metamorphosis" is a performance research project that seeks to reconstruct the repertoire of ancient actors’ skills, particularly the impersonation and transformation. In the light of our 10-year performance experience and from the perspective of working with source material, we see metamorphosis as a key concept for the understanding of phenomena in Greek theatre and its constitutive actor-chorus-spectator relationship.

Therefore, we are looking for a project which does not regard final presentation as a goal, but tries to conduct a site-specific research / project within a certain period of time. It is also expected that the research / project is open to the local community for sharing the process and collaboration. The proposed projects are supposed to be temporary works with which the applied area can be returned to its original state.

Founded in 1987, the independent curatorial training program, the École du Magasin, was set up to provide a professional environment for a rigorous combination of research and practice. Since its inception, emphasis has been placed on the exhibition as an open platform in which different fields or strategies of representation can be drawn upon. The École encourages various curatorial approaches that include not only how a project takes form but also how aesthetics can be combined with the aim of providing information; how to take into account and integrate newly developed network cultures and technology; how a curatorial project can be understood in a given context; and, finally, how an exhibition can express the identity of a collective and the cohesiveness of a group project.

Are you a choreographer, dancer, filmmaker or multi-media artist looking to expand your scope?
Joint Adventures is calling for submissions for the fifth Choreographic Captures Competition, which encourages artists to explore "new aesthetic approaches and visual languages for choreography and film" in a 60-second-long "ad format" film.
The project is also supported by the German Federal Cultural Foundation, but is open to artists from all over the world.
The first Choreographic Captures Competition began with the motto "Art for those who didn't ask for it!" Though the audience of art shown in a museum or a gallery is an audience that has specifically sought out an artistic experience, the winning entries from Choreographic Captures will be shown at partner theaters between film ads. Though entries will have been shot in the form of a classic advertising clip - their intent is not to sell a product, but to make an artistic statement, or perhaps just to share a moment of beauty.
Winners will be awarded during the Munich Filmfest, taking place from June 29 to July 7, 2012.

The Node Center for Curatorial Studies Residency is a program lasting twelve intensive weeks, designed for international emerging curators who wish to expand their professional practice by developing projects in Berlin in a collaborative environment.
Node’s program has an emphasis on developing innovative practice that expands the mechanism beyond the traditional process and format of the art exhibition, generating new discursive possibilities. To this end, the program is underpinned by a philosophy of exploring different fields of knowledge outside of the traditional gallery context to adapt them to the curatorial praxis. This gives rise to the opportunity to experiment with challenging curatorial projects, while receiving professional feedback and technical support.
During the twelve weeks of the program, the resident curators enjoy a shared office as well as the necessary resources to deeply immerse them in Berlin's dynamic art scene. Residents participate in weekly activities programmed by Node such as artist studio visits, tours to exhibition spaces, networking events and workshops with a variety of experts and practitioners. The residency culminates in the development of a printed publication and the curation of a final show.
Participants are also encouraged to take an active role in developing the program and are welcome to arrange seminars, workshops, guest lectures, etc.
Duration of the Curatorial Residency Program: 12 weeks / 30 hours per week.
1 initial deposit of 720€
3 monthly payments of 770€
