From April 4 - May 2, 2012, apexart will accept 500-word creatively written proposals describing your idea for an exhibition. The proposal should be clearly written, with the major emphasis on explaining the concept, as the only instructions given to the more than 100 jurors from around the world is to, 'identify the best exhibitions.' The city for the exhibition must be listed as well as the curator/organizer's location of residence. Often there is a greater effect when exhibitions take place outside of a city center, where fewer people are involved in the commercial art world.
Two winners selected by a 'crowd sourcing' method will be in charge of a one-month apexart franchise with an up to $8,000 exhibition budget, an honorarium for the essay and organization of the show, and complete creative control with a few apexart guidelines. We will also provide the necessary guidance and administrative support to make the exhibition happen as successfully as past exhibitions in Jordan, Johann

Taking place each July it is an artist-led initiative which strives to provide a meeting place for artists working in “traditional” visual disciplines (painting, fine print, drawing, sculpture). It brings together up to 12 artists of all nationalities for 10 days to work, exchange dialogue and experiment in a way that is mutually beneficial. LindArt is by now recognized as a unique and highly valued opportunity for emerging artists to examine their practice in critically engaged global contexts.
The artists are invited to move away from their habitual practice in terms of materials and style and to show a genuine willingness to place themselves and their practice into question; truly explore areas of artistic and cultural uncertainty and seek creative solutions through the collaboration and, exchange cultural/artistic dialogue that is the hallmark of the Workshop.

´temporary home´ is a interdisciplinary arts and culture initiative which actively explores concepts of 'home' in its broader sense. The 2012 edition home in crisis asks how situations of crisis affect the notions, needs and desires of home. The project runs for six weeks from July 1st – August 24th, 2012, parallel to the upcoming documenta13 in Kassel, Germany. During this time, ´temporary home´ literally manifests as a real home for a group of international creatives who will live and work together in a joint investigation, the lived-in installation. The project starts July 1st with a two-week 'construction of home' phase, followed by one month of occupancy (starting July 13th) featuring an ongoing cultural program with art exhibition, performances, music, theatre display, movie nights, discussions, and the creation of space for social interaction and experimentation. All events will be non-for-proft and open to the public.
We invite creative individuals or groups to become part of the lived-in installation temporary home and to develop and present their own concepts about ´home in crisis´ in Kassel, 2012. Applicants for a residency in the context of temporary home should be prepared to join a creative social setting rather then present in a conventional art show. Candidates should be willing to physically reside within the project for a period of one or two weeks and to actively share a social home with other residents, attendees, and visitors.

EUNIC is delighted to present the Curatorial Exchange Programme 2012 for internship in European museums and galleries.
Education and professional development of the new generation of young curators is now a top priority for the Russian cultural organisations, as well as for related professional associations. Therefore, EUNIC has developed a project that gives its participants a unique opportunity to advance in career, study the European art market and build new professional contacts in Austria, Germany, France, Sweden, the UK and other countries. Young Russian curators will get internships (from 3 weeks to 2 months) in the leading museums and contemporary art galleries in Europe.
The programme is designed for young people who already have experience in curatorial work in the field of contemporary art. We hope that the outcome of this long-term project will be participants’ qualification update and establishment of professional contacts between the countries.
Curators for internship will be selected after the competition among application forms sent from 15 March till 4 May 2012 to curatorialexchange[@]gmail.com, and the following interviews with candidates. The internships will take place in different time set by the countries leading the project.
Full information about the project as well as the application can be dowloaded below. Internship programmes for all counties will be available on EUNIC web-site after 1 April 2012.

It involves two internationally established institutions, Van Abbemuseum | The Netherlands and MOSTYN | Wales, and two that are less connected to a rigid institutional structure, vessel | Italy and Galeria Labirynt | Poland. The main goal of this project is to establish possible roles that institutions could play in the cultural production of a specific area, in order to respond to the needs of the area itself. Taking into account the current political, economic, and social conditions, Giant Step aims to articulate institutional (ideal) types, which are put into a critical dialogue with existing institutions within the framework of four “nomad symposia”.

We are looking for artists to facilitate workshops to produce
innovative artwork compatible with digital platforms. We are working with
a group of young people who will investigate social issues that are
important to their community. The young people will find out what matters
by interviewing people and groups in their area, and investigating their
community’s stories, emotions, history and future through varied art-forms
and community reporting.
This project is the first of a high-profile and national scheme which uses a digital platform for young people to research, connect, and share stories about their community. We are open to any ideas of how you as an artist can work with these young people to create a creative, exciting and innovative ppiece of community reporting for the web.
The initial projects take place in Manchester and Salford. The programme
is a joint partnership between Rathbone and Odd Theatre Company and is
funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Please submit your pitch to Rebecca by Thursday 10th May 5pm. Within your pitch please state what experience you have working with young people your art-form specialism and examples of your past achievements how you envisage your art-form to express the stories of the community and why you think young people will engage with this. Please ensure your end product will be something that can be showcased online.
Interviews will be held on 17 th May, and training for successful artists
will be delivered on 24 th May.

The event is going to take place on May 11-12 at General Public in Schönhauser Allee 167, 10435 Berlin. On May 11 we are planning a common discussion on art production and collaborative strategies of networking with cultural producers based in Berlin, and on May 12 a series of open discussion as a reflection on distributed practices of networking as strategies of artistic production with particular focus on the status of network topologies in the field of economy, hacktivism and politics.
The first reSource event after transmediale 2k+12 will be focused on the idea of establishing a platform of networking and visibility for the local and translocal communities in Berlin. This event will be mainly directed to local actors and will be thought as an occasion to meet the people who showed interest in the reSource activity, answered to the statement of interest and took part at the previous reSource initiatives. The idea is to bring such people together, and collectively discuss various thematic issues proposed by the reSource curator and partners (in synchrony with the ones proposed by the programme team of transmediale 2k+13).

Our perception is transmitting a steady and continuously updated flow of information as a basis for creating our consciousness and orientation. Trained constants of orientation within space are saved in our memory, as part of a common world knowledge. We relate to this knowledge during processes of imagination, planning and space-time reasoning. Hence orientation is generated as an individual achievement and a cognition gained by a subject actively engaged with its environment. The function of orientation is generated only through this interrelation.
Mental space is an ability which refers to cognition and contains subjective consciousness in the following dimensions:
1. Orientation referring to space
( look at the location of space, we will research this at our work location/work space in
2. Orientation referring to identity
How does space affect us and how far does our mental space reach out?

The art project springhouse will take place in Dresden June 8th and 9th 2012. Artists of all disciplines (painting, sculpture, performing arts, music etc.) are invited into a private home in order to transform the house into a temporary space for the arts. They are challenged to relate to an intimate setting and to explore by means of their works the interchange between the arts and daily life. All space, including storage rooms, staircases and attic will be at disposal to the artists.
The house becomes an artistic place to live, sleep, eat, work and communicate about art and its strucures. It becomes a lab for work processes, transformed into a screen for play and projections, into a stage and a show room for the contemporary arts.

What happens if you take the philosophy of hacking and apply it to the urban environment? When you consider innovative ways to harness the flows of energy, data and people that pass through the city every day?
Interactivos?'12 Dublin will see Medialab Prado and Science Gallery work together to set up an experimental laboratory to channel hacker culture, and allow artists, designers, makers, doers, data nerds, hobbyists, citizen scientists, tech geeks, activists, edgy engineers and DIY urban planners to take control over the resolution of problems that affect and link together worldwide 'communities of concern'. Interactivos?'12 Dublin will move citizen science out of the garage/prototype stage and onto the street.
Interactivos?'12 Dublin is part of HACK THE CITY, Dublin's 2012 flagship exhibition organized by Science Gallery that will engage and inspire participants to transform the city from the ground up, to rethink cities through the spirit and philosophy of the hacker ethos - to bend, mash-up, tweak and cannibalise city systems, to create possibilities, empower the citizen, illustrate visionary thinking and demonstrate real-world examples for sustainable urban futures. HACK THE CITY will capitalize on Dublin's resources as a nimble multi-national, multi-lingual, rapidly growing European city, ideally placed to act as 'laboratory' for testing ideas and technologies that have a direct impact on citizens' lives.
The Prize is open to all artists up to the age of 35 with the aim of acknowledging and giving long-term support to a future generation of artists. The Prize is unique because of its global reach and highly democratic form of application via the Internet.
The artists may apply with their work without any restrictions concerning gender, nationality, race or artistic medium. Participants must fill in all fields of the Application Form and upload a photo or video of three to seven of their artworks.
The Main Prize winner will receive a total of $100,000: $60,000 as a cash award, and $40,000 towards the production of a new work. An additional $20,000 will be allocated to fund artist-in-residency programs for the Special Prize winner.
The International Jury will come to Kyiv to award the Main and Special Prize. They will announce the Prize winners during the FGAP Award Ceremony on December 7, 2012.

In 2011 AND worked in partnership with the British Waterways and The Waterways Trust to pilot an artists residency programme. In Summer 2012 we are offering another unique opportunity for an artist to be in residence on a canal boat on and around the Manchester and Pennine waterways.
The aim of the programme is to offer artists (minimum of two participants) a dedicated period of time to develop research or a project in this unique habitat. AND are seeking applications from individuals / groups working in emerging artistic practice that questions normality. Applicants should have an established background in their respective fields and should be able to demonstrate how a residency period at AND will assist the development of their research and practice.
This residency will be based on a Canal Boat on the Manchester and Pennine Waterways, Northwest England for approximately four weeks in August and September 2012. Accommodation will be provided on a canal boat for four weeks, full training on boat handling and maintenance will be provided at the beginning of the residency. A route will be mapped out in collaboration with the resident artists and partner organisations.
The handling of a canal boat requires two people, therefore the residency is open to a minimum of two people. There may be a possibility to provide accommodation for more participants, so the residency encourages applications from collaborating artists, collectives and families (fees and stipend remain the same).
The performance will take place on the outdoor grounds of exRotaprint in Wedding, on May 27th 2012 at 3pm and will finish at approximately 330pm. Participants are requested to arrive on location two hours before the showing, at 1pm, for a run through. No previous performance experience necessary but a genuine desire to be part of a unique project that daringly traces the collective histories and memories of people and their labour.
If you want to be part of Biographical Chronicle of Industrial Production please fill out the online form below. You will be contacted again at the beginning of May with updates about the project. Please feel free to pass on this call for participation to your family and friends.
This project is non-funded. Every participant will receive a commemorative Biographical Chronicle of Industrial Production ballpoint pen. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Baruch Gottlieb and Francesca Romana Ciardi are looking for 100 people interested in becoming a part of a unique site-specific and monumental performance, manifesting the living history of industrial architecture. Set in the unusual and suggestive setting of exRotaprint, a former printer factory in Wedding, the Biographical Chronicle of Industrial Production retraces the stories of the people who produced the world we live in today.
Using a model of the construction of the Ex-Rotaprint factory, participants will re-present the workers originally involved in the construction of the building over 60 years ago by appearing ‘on stage’ for a time proportional to the the historical person they are representing. This time ‘on stage’ will generally be quite short, on the average 5 seconds at a time...The rest of the participants, when not on stage or getting ready to go on stage, will produce background sounds ‘back stage’ for the performance.
• Total cost of the three month residency is €675
(this is paid in 3 instalments of €225 at the beginning of each month)
• Deposit: 100 € (returned to the resident upon departure)
deadline for application
Applications for the residency period from 4th August to 31st October will be accepted until 27th May 2012 (closing time for applications - 6pm, Berlin)
In order to apply you must provide the following:
• A completed application form - Personal data / CV / written interview
• PDF with examples of recent works (between 5 to 10 works) max 10 MB, must be send via www.berlinerpool.wetransfer.com to email@example.com
Decisions will be announced on 3rd June.
culturia has been building its networks since 2005 and has progressively changed from a residency using temporary spaces in Berlin to develop into an experimental place where the practice of exploring artistic process became the concept.
The main point of the program is to enhance the internal development of the artist during the short-term residency, which can be more valuable than a production of new objects.
Artists and researchers. No restrictions on media.

Every year Manifest offers an opportunity for graduate students to exhibit at our gallery in Cincinnati. This sixth installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. Often the most exceptional work comes out of these artists’ immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest’s goal, therefore, is to select works that in the truest sense of the word are contemporary masterpieces – works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career.
Eligibility: Master Pieces is open to current MFA/MA students or MFA/MA graduates since January 2011. If in doubt of eligibility contact Manifest to inquire.

The Trieste Contemporanea Committee publishes the tenth edition of the International Design Competition with the aim of showcasing the most original design offerings from the countries of Central Eastern Europe.
Theme of the 2012 competition: In a saturated consumer market where design is everywhere (and nowhere) there are objects from the recent past whose traces are being lost. They are anonymous or everyday objects, on a small scale or mass production. The aim is to build a large memory atlas dedicated to the anonymous design of the countries of Central Eastern Europe, therefore in this year’s competition, participants are asked to identify an object from the collective memory, which demonstrates design skill, it can be simple or complex as long as it is meaningful.
