It was initially set up to improve the professional standing of sculptors, raise the profile of sculpture and develop the quality and scope of commissioning procedures and opportunities.
In addressing these needs the Society initiated sculpture symposia and thus provided opportunities for sculptors to work with new materials, new contexts and fundamentally, to engage in dialogue with their peers. Exhibitions and conferences likewise provided much needed platforms for contemporary Irish sculpture, offering to critically appraise and encourage the development of the art form in Ireland.

•Application Deadline


The 9th Kaunas Biennial UNITEXT will create conditions for immediate collisions of an artwork and a spectator, allowing the experience of art as a universal text. Curators of the exhibition together with artists will pursue a concept that is new and unfamiliar in a cultural context and will consolidate it by presenting practical examples. We will go into the question of a unitext, which is the latest link in work -> text -> intertext -> hypertext -> unitext semiotic chain of a philosophic / art criticism / artistic field. According to the consistency of this chain the UNITEXT exhibition claims a privilege to present novel ideas about the art at the level of structural and notional revelation. The suggestion is to perceive unitext in this chain as a universal artistic language, which unifies different experiences and concepts.

KAUNAS BIENNIAL TEXTILE is organized since 1997. 8th edition of international exhibition was held on 2011 by Kaunas Artists’ Support Fund. We seek to make Kaunas biennial TEXTILE the most significant event for contemporary textile art in Europe, which reflects analytically the art processes currently taking place all over the world, by bringing up the priorities of creative collaboration, openness and democratic relationships in the processes of art creation and its perception.

The Festival will present selected works from artists and writers whose work is mainly concerned with human rights and freedom of expression.

The event promotes freedom and equal rights for all citizens and secularism.

We invite artists to create works that encourage open discussion on subjects that may be skillfully omitted in politically correct circles.

Submission guidelines:

Passion for Freedom Festival
Passion for Freedom is non partisan and voluntary organisation gathering professionals working in arts and media. As individual activists we responded to Maryam Namazie’s “One Law for All” campaign which exposes the discriminatory nature of Sharia tribunals in the UK. As a result the first edition of non-profit London Festival took place in 2009. The annual celebration of Freedom takes place in a spacious, contemporary gallery next to Tate Modern. Last year’s edition has showcased artists from 12 different countries carefully selected from hundreds of applications.

Passion for Freedom gives unique opportunity for artists to openly debate and exercise the freedom of speech.

We feel disgusted by the suppression of women and the many sided attack on our Freedom.

In Search of the Former East in the Former West
•Application Deadline


In the past two decades, artists from Eastern Europe and Russia have
been discovered and rediscovered in the West many times over. To this
date, there have been over 25 major group exhibitions mounted on the
topic of art from these regions before 1989, while many more books,
articles, reviews have been published and significant conferences
organized. Moreover, artists from these regions have entered in the
collections of major museums in the West. From Berlin to Chicago, from
Paris to New York, there seems to be a boundless interest on the part
of scholars working in the Western cannon of art history to present
eastern art production before the fall of the Iron Curtain - and thus
come to terms with their former Other. By now, this series of grand,
ambitious projects amounts to more than just a way for the West to
satisfy the need for covering this so-called "uncharted territory" or
the desire for the new in contemporary art...

Pro Artibus AiR program
•Application Deadline


The aim of the new Pro Artibus AiR program is to creatively and critically explore and analyze the use of the shared public room, with the own place of operations Ekenäs in Raseborg as the starting point. Public art projects that have been implemented in this small and picturesque Finland-Swedish town have engaged the townspeople during the recent years. Now the Pro Artibus Foundation wishes, through art productions with Nordic artists in cooperation with local actors and the local population, to deepen the discussion on contemporary art in the public room. The residence program is targeted at well established Nordic artists and curators who show an interest of carrying out place-specific art projects in a public environment.

The planning of the residence program is of a long-term character and the first artists in residence will participate in the definition of the structure and formulation of the program. The Pro Artibus AiR program accepts 4-5 artists in residence in 2013. The residence period lasts 2-3 months.
The Pro Artibus Foundation offers the artists in residence a large furnished apartment at the campus of the Novia University of Applied Sciences in Ekenäs. A daily subsistence allowance of 36 EUR for 5 days/week is paid for the residence period and the trip to Ekenäs is compensated according to the most inexpensive form of transport.
