Electricity is Magic
EiM was founded in 2009 by Eric Powell and Matt Griffin, primarily as a vehicle to release their own experimental electronic and electroacoustic music. Quickly, however, it grew to be a curatorial project, and, since late 2009, EiM have been putting on art and performance events throughout North America.
In 2012, EiM are proud to expand again, and will be presenting gallery shows at its (semi-)permanent home at the EiM Gallery, located at 715 Richmond St. W. in Toronto, ON.
Our aim with the gallery space is to continue to present works that don’t necessarily fit comfortably within a traditional gallery context. Artists will be given the challenge of presenting work which engages with or reacts to the living space of the apartment. We are particularly interested in work which employs some aspect of technological mediation, but not necessarily as the impetus for the piece. We’re also interested in slow art, which not only requests, but often demands, and always reminds us of the pleasure in sustained viewing of a particular work.
Call for works:
As we plan our 2012 season, we invite submissions from individual artists, collectives, or curators to submit proposals for the EiM Gallery. Our space is non-traditional, and as such, we have some unique parameters for artists to contend with.
In the frame of KIOSK project Oberliht Association calls artists from Moldova to submit project proposals to be presented at FLAT SPACE every month, as an intervention into it.
FLAT SPACE is a functional replica of a socialist apartment, commissioned to represent the identity of the KIOSK project. The point of departure for the design of the FLAT SPACE was to publicly display the private space of a flat limited by the standards of the socialist society. The transparency and the openness of the flat give the exposure to an architectural model extracted from the flat building that is composed from few basic elements characteristic to societies in transitions: the main façade with a balcony covered with plastic windows, dining room, kitchen and bathroom: http://chiosc.oberliht.com/apartament/
Please send your project proposals and a short CV before the 15th of every month to: vladimir[@]oberliht.org.md

AGM is a curatorial project with some of the inbuilt features of a
parasite. Each time, by changing partner, location, form and content,
its primary focus is to explore the peculiarity of the hosting body –

the development of a network of cultural centres working. Our goal is
to create and consolidate international collaboration, foster
knowledge exchange and support international mobility of cultural
workers, theorists and artists. Every AGM Culture edition poses a
series of questions challenging pre-conceived ideas of the hosting
body and the relative cultural productions taking place in/through
AGM is currently accepting proposals for future editions of the
Conversation series symposia. Prospective project partners must send a
letter of interest to email@example.com, outlining their organisation
and a project / theme / context which AGM would be working with.

We are not commissioning texts but collecting existing documents of various forms, such as: invitations, manifestos, proposals, lists, applications, correspondence, legal and financial statements, formal requests and letters of intent.
We think that you, due to your experience in the field, might have such material; something you consider to be of extraordinary interest, something that reveals the very fundamentals of your practice and/or mechanisms that constitute the context that you operate within.
We would kindly ask you to share documents with us. It can be any number of pages but it has to be scanned and sent to us by email as an image or a PDF, or printed and sent by post.
We hope that you consider participating and contributing to the encyclopaedia, however there will be a selection process and we cannot guarantee the publication of all sent material.
Our intention is to reach out as far as possible and we invite you to forward this to other possible contributors!

XHIBITOR is comprised of four sections:
EBOOK: Establishes a theoretical and historical framework for transmedia art exhibitions, positioned from the perspective of Bauhaus ideology.
DATABASE: Presents an archive of past and present exhibition histories, classified according to the language of transmedia.
TOOLKIT: Resources blog updated with articles, studies, presentations, academic texts and multimedia educational content.
VISUAL MAPS: Data mapping charts and visualizations representing exhibitions, taxonomies and related histories.
XHIBITOR is a multiplatform research project investigating transmedia and art exhibitions. An experiment in open access academic publishing, this is the master’s degree dissertation of Julia Fryett.
Though the term transmedia was popularized in 2003, it echoes avant-garde exhibition design strategies theorized by Herbert Bayer and Frederick Kiesler nearly seventy years prior. This project considers transmedia within the trajectory of art history, questioning how it can be employed as a curatorial methodology aligning with Bauhaus and De Stijl notions of immersion and interactivity.
By looking simultaneously toward the past and the present, XHIBITOR is meant to inspire and provoke artists, curators, producers, designers, architects and storytellers across disciplines to push the boundaries of what we consider to be an exhibition.
The political, social-economic, cultural and inevitably also contemporary art scene in Armenia is indeed marked by certain set of common ‘issues’ inherent to post-socialist context but the last 20 years have given rise to many a specific problems that are of core interest towards the country from research and artistic practice perspective. Therefore this experimental cluster offers those interested a possibility not just to do artistic tourism with its ‘visitor’ outlook but to become a participant of certain process where specific problems could appear as solved or on the contrary even deepened on social, communal and institutional levels.
