"You First" dares progressive artists to submit works that intensify the feeling of being alive while promoting thinking and conversing in the here and now.
"You First" is an exhibition at OCCCA (Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, Santa Ana, California) presented by UFORA curators Dalibor Polivka and Rob Mintz. Exhibition dates October 1-29, 2011.
You First seeks art reflecting a paradigm shift in the way we think about art.
The art of our time is a multilayered, international, interdisciplinary conversation. You First invites works with a compelling physical presence and a strong conceptual component to make this utopia tangible.
You First requests thought-provoking videos, photographs, paintings, sculptures, fashion, installations, and art utilizing computers and the internet. In addition to public practice, social sculpture, and relational aesthetics, You First is interested in projects created by artist-duos and collectives working collaboratively in all mediums.

The special thing is: We are asking the artists themselves what kind of ideas they have in mind to communicate current art.
The ideas are supposed to be artistic as well as experimental and they should differ from the established approaches everyone knows, for we are not asking for the classic type of exhibition. Every location and any approach is possible.
This calling for new ideas has two aims:
1. We are planning to publish an art reader presenting practical and first of all novel ideas to communicate current art.
2. Five to seven awarded artists will have the chance to try out their respective idea on the spot during a one month "project centered artist in residence stay" with stipend in september 2011 in the Kuenstlerdorf Schoeppingen Foundation.
Please submit your idea as a short text accompanied by some drawings, photos or other materials to visualize your proposal.
Last date for entries will be July 1st 2011.
Of the submitted ideas we want to try to present as many as possible in the book.
All the participants will receive message till the beginning of July 2011 if the submitted idea will be published in the reader or if they have been awarded one of the project centered artist in residence stays to try out the idea.

How is it possible to invent new forms of solidarity in times of imposed capitalist absurdity? How can we define new spaces of struggle against the suffering of budget cuts, mass unemployment and nationalist threat? And not what is to be done, but how is it to be done?
“Kuhle Wampe, or Who Owns The World” was a communist avant-garde cinema project conceived in the Berlin summer of 1932, under an atmosphere of no money, no time, and extreme political oppression. Immediately censored after its release by both the German state and the Soviet Union, Kuhle Wampe explores the tension between the petite bourgeoisie family and the principle of collective solidarity.
We hope to facilitate a collective response to the film, open to all.
Using video as our primary means of documentation, we invite everybody to collaborate with us on this research project, which is open to any media or practice.
We want to reimagine, retrace, remix, reenact, and reload Kuhle Wampe.
We want to film, perform, intervene, interrogate, walk, bike and sing Kuhle Wampe.
We want to create a cinematic compilation of our collective responses to Kuhle Wampe.
Free. Bring equipment if you have it.
Languages: German, English, Denglish.

Lighthouse are delighted to be part of a group of arts organizations who are calling for expressions of interest for two major new contemporary art commissions.
Voices of the Sea is a unique commissioning opportunity created by a partnership of Brighton & Hove based arts organisations in the UK: Fabrica, Blast Theory, Brighton Festival, Lighthouse, Photoworks, the University of Brighton and Musee de Beaux Arts Calais in France.
We seek to commission two artists, each with a strong internationally recognised track record, to create two major new works, responding to the coastal context and maritime heritage of South East England.
The commissions are inspired by The Boat Project by Lone Twin, beginning its maiden voyage in 2012 and visiting Brighton as part of Brighton Festival. The commissions are part of RELAY, a programme by Turning Point South East (a network of visual arts organizations). Like The Boat Project, RELAY is connected to the Cultural Olympiad 2012.

During the workshop following issues will be discussed:
> Exhibition as medium.
> Institutional critic - the role of the museum and art’s system.
> Experiments on display – category of time, space, chronology, order, interaction.
> Identities- curator and artist. Fictive personalities, exchanging roles.
> Concept of exhibition. Structure. Deconstructing structures.
> Exhibition spaces – museum, public galleries and institutions, galleries, off spaces, public spaces, alternative spaces. Differences and common points and strategies of work.
> Curator as a filter, theoretician, moderator, creator, organizer. Artist as a curator? Problems with terminology. The role of the curator – can it be replaced by a new form?
> Compartmentalization of art positions. Division in styles, topics, subjects, geographical origins, mediums and sovereignty of an artwork.
With flashlights we start a series of mini-workshops where artists, curators, cultural workers, theoreticians, scientist ... will give an insight into their work field.

Where’s the art work? The residency and its location is the work. The group is the work. The differences between the group is the work. But the group is looking somewhere else altogether. And that somewhere else — certainly, not here — must be where art is really about to happen.
Based on research and experimentation through play, improvisation, and the use of chance, this residency will explore the methodologies of ethnographic film maker Jean Rouch, that looking catalyses a particular reality. And, Grotowski’s notion that actors co-create the event of theatre with its spectators might provide some guidance.
It's a collaboration. Field trips, hikes, meetings with "real" people, collaborative video projects, individual quests, a lot of "show and tell," too much late night Googling, and lots of misunderstandings will steer us through this residency.

La Loteria is a game similar to Bingo. Instead of numbers, it uses a deck of cards illustrated with figures that represent everyday objects, plants, animals, mythical creatures and other characters.
Borderline Projects encourages artists from all countries and backgrounds to participate in LA LOTERIA, an international exhibition that will feature work inspired by the Loteria Mexicana (Mexican Bingo) deck of cards. The exhibition will take place in September 2011 at Observatory, an arts and cultural space in New York City.
The idea behind this exhibition is to use the images of La Loteria as a matrix that helps us generate dialogues, intersections, and points of encounter. We want to invite artists from all origins and disciplines to be inspired by the symbolism, style, characters, themes or any other aspect of La Loteria that they find suggestive. We invite you to adapt, play homage, adopt or desecrate La Loteria.
This exhibition seeks to open a liminal space around these cards, a border-zone where it’s possible to explore our differences together.
.DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: July 15, 2011
.SUBMISSION FEE: There is no fee to participate
.EXHIBITION DATES: September 10 – October 22, 2011

DEFAULT Masterclass is an international cultural and artistic initiative that is hosted in the town of Lecce in Italy’s Puglia region. It proposes to be a context to discuss, imagine and put forward sustainable ideas for how art can interact with the regeneration of former industrial spaces; those economical, mnemonic and knowledge-laden spaces in which art is called in to transform and ‘activate’. DEFAULT Masterclass will offer the opportunity to 20 selected artists (10 from different countries and 10 from Puglia Region) to be part of the discussion of ‘what’s next in art, cities and regeneration’ and contribute to it. During the ten days participants will develop their research approach in intense workshop and seminar sessions, expand their network and exchange know-how with the support of a residency curator; they will meet international leading curators and artists, art managers and representatives of cultural and artistic organisations from the European and the Mediterranean area.
Participants will be encouraged to develop and present a professional proposal: a publication documenting the masterclass and individual artist projects will be produced after the masterclass.
Participating artists coming from outside Italy will receive a grant covering air and/or train travel (economy class), for a max of Eur 400,00 each.

This year's topic is: Reality or fiction? Let’s pretend it’s not there
There is no entry fee. The Competition is open and all artists interested in billboard art are invited to take part. The works should be submitted by the 20th July, 2011 via electronic mail to the address: email@example.com
10 most interesting works will be displayed on billboards in the city space during the Art Moves Festival in September /October 2011 in Torun, Poland. The author of the most interesting work will receive the Main Award in the amount of PLN 10.000 (about EUR 2.540, USD 3.770).
Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme „Reality or fiction? Let’s pretend it’s not there”.
This slogan can serve as a kind of a metaphor of the processes taking place in the contemporary world. The slogan concerns daily matters and questions whether the things/situations in our daily life are real or fictional and how can we distinguish one from the other.
Simultaneously, the slogan also raises a question what we, as individuals or as a community, are trying to hide. Are there any specific phenomena, processes or events we tend to intentionally ignore and pretend “it’s not there”?

We start with a question that is simple in appearance but tellingly complex at the same time: What is contemporary Lusophone African art? Under question here are a number of key terms that need to be unpacked if we are to address this issue in a critical and challenging way: ‘contemporary’, ‘Lusophone’, ‘African’ and ‘art’. Each term is contested territory in its own right but in bringing them together within an interrogative form we are striving to open up a discursive platform in which these complex terms can be debated, critiqued and repositioned. For example, so-called ‘Lusophone Africa’ is not a seamless whole. It includes a variety of countries each with very different social, political and cultural histories. In acknowledging this complexity, it is the hope of the editors that a significant gap in the geography of knowledge production of contemporary African art can begin to be addressed and in turn generate more research and debate across language and cultural borders.
This special issue invites contributions, not exceeding 6000 words in length, from artists, art historians, theoreticians and intellectuals interested in exploring through original manuscripts any of the issues pertaining to ‘What is Contemporary Lusophone African Art?’. The authors’ names and corresponding bibliographic references (500 characters max.) must be included in the document’s title page, which must also have the authors’ institution. The submitted manuscripts must be accompanied by five keywords and when preparing the manuscripts, authors must observe the formatting and the submission regulations of Third Text journal (available at http://www.thirdtext.com/authors-guidelines/). Manuscripts must be submitted in English. In exceptional circumstances only we may be able to provide some help for translation of texts.
Abstracts written in English, (500 words max.) including the manuscript’s title, should be sent by email attachment.

Narrative is the element that allows you to construct a message, generally speaking. Constructing a narrative is a game, you have some pieces, certain rules, and then you play with them, you mix them together, you give hierarchy if you want and then polish them to reach a result.
We will discuss the basic elements of Narrative: Space, time, sound, image control and install / set up. From this point we will try to see how each element affects the narrative, and what does it bring to it, so we can define in a general way what narrative in video is and how may it work in our favour to construct meaning.
ANDREA COYOTZI BORJA has a BA in Fine Arts (University of the Americas, Puebla México) and studies in Video-Cinema and TV in Barcelona, Spain. She works mainly with video and sound, but has projects related with the everyday of the art production.

The Sheffield International Artist's Book Prize is a biennial, open submission exhibition, held in conjunction with and as part of the Off the Shelf Festival, which takes place in Sheffield during the months of October and November. The Main Prize is made up of cash and an exhibition at Bank Street Arts during 2012. The winner is decided by visitors to the exhibition who are asked to vote for their favourite entry.
The Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize and Exhibition is open to makers of artist books in any format and from anywhere in the world. No definition is being
given of what constitutes an artist’s book beyond clarifying that the prize is concerned with books about art or artists, but books as art.
All books entered into the competition will be displayed in the exhibition in October 2011. In addition to the Main Prize, we offer two further prizes, both made up of cash and exhibitions. The prizes decided by jury are the Student Prize and Special Jury Prize.
The Sheffield International Artist's Book Prize is as much about finding an interesting format in which to show and view artists' books as it is about creating a prize. The various galleries at Bank Street will be filled with armchairs, sofas, beanbags, cushions and the books themselves placed around the galleries with clear instructions for visitors, to look, read and participate. Entry to the exhibition and prize is free; artists may submit only one book per individual maker, more than one in the case of collaborative authorship.
Closing date for submissions - 31st July 2011.

PixelPops 2011 will take place in TPTP art space in Montmartre, Paris and simultaneously in a yet unknown location in Copenhagen. It will consist of video-performances accessible to the public every night during 2 weeks in October.
The work-title of this years exhibit is "Performance From Far Away". With this we seek to make a program that explores performances presented through the format of video; to play with and question both mediums (performance and video) and to encourage dialogue between the artist and the public. This dialogue will be present in the performance videos themselves, but also on a blog where the dialogue can continue in the form of comments from the audience which can turn into written conversations/discussions between the artist and the viewer.
Artists can participate with performance-videos of various duration (max 5 minutes). The performances should be made as and for the video format.
The idea is not to show merely documentation of performances, even though there might also be space for a few of those in certain cases. There is also the possibility to do live performances in one of the hosting venues, which will be video recorded and also shown in the partner city.
There is no application fee.
