SOCIAL CODE Juried Exhibition
Deadline: 07/20/2018 | Location: Florida
SOCIAL CODE Exhibition: August 20th – September 29th Calling all Artists! SOCIAL CODE is an exhibition of new works by local, state and national artists. The concept of the show is to demystify Art vs. Social Media as written about by Ben Davis (see excerpt below), to create a social networking art show, and to provide artists an opportunity to show their work here at Arts Warehouse. Can an Instagram feed be a curated gallery? Is social media pulling us away from seeing works in person? How has the social aspect of our lives impacted our artistic practices? This call for art is seeking work that may explore or explain any of these questions as well as the general “battle” of Art vs. Social Media. This theme is open to interpretation by the artist – all mediums and ideas welcome. DEADLINE: Applications and all artwork due July 20th, 2018 Artist Submissions Open to artists/creatives ages 18+ working in All media 2-D, 3-D, Video, Installations etc. Must be new work, less than two years old. Artists may submit multiple pieces. Artwork can range from Facebook feeds to Instagram worthy installations and beyond. You are encouraged to get out of the box creative; create/submit something that viewers want to post and interact with Please note Artist are responsible for round trip shipment of work and/or delivery/pick up of work. To Submit, Email the following to with artist name and “SOCIAL CODE Submission” in the subject line. – 1-2 image of each piece – Statement or description of the piece – Title, Medium, size, year in name of file – Artist Contact Information The exhibition and awards will be juried by Nichole Hickey, Manager of Artist Services, The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. Best in Show (Featured image and article on our promo materials, website and social media, newsletter) 2nd place (Featured image on website and social media, newsletter) 3rd place and People’s Choice (Featured image on social media and website) ART VS. SOCIAL MEDIA “By “art,” let’s say we mean the products of the traditional, professionalized art world, a privileged class of esthetic objects set apart from ordinary communicative acts, authored by a special person called an artist. For “social media,” let’s say we mean all these new-fangled media platforms which are highly accessible, and based around enabling open-ended conversations between networks of participants. The utility of this operation is that it lets us see that the question of “art and social media” actually involves an opposition between two different fields, with different logics: a relatively exclusive, closed-in type of expression vs. a relatively open, relation-based mode of operation. This means that there can be no harmonious merger of the two terms, just various ways of navigating the tension between them. (The only thing that would be “social media art” in the full and genuine sense would be a social networking service actually designed as an art project, which would raise all sorts of questions.)” Ben Davis

OGA VideoArt Exhibitions 2018/2019
Deadline: 07/31/2018 | Location: International
Born in 2013, the space of the OGA (Ospizio Giovani Artisti / Young Artists Hospice) organizes from four to six group exhibitions every year, with contemporary and modern art works that come exclusively from the Collection of the OGA. These works are usually donated to the OGA by the artists themselves in order to create thematic exhibitions that are a continuous reflection on the role of art involvement in today's society. It's very important to say that the OGA was born with the ironic intent to exhibit only works made by artists over 35 years of age, in provocative opposition to festivals and institutions that seek only young artists. On the occasion of the VideoArt Exhibitions this limit will not be fully respected. It is true, however, that artists over 35 years of age will have more chances to be selected, trying to respect as much as possible the primary rule of the exhibition space. Rules & Terms Only for VideoArt works. Please don't send narrative or documentary works. The selected video works will be screened in the upcoming group exhibitions of the season 2018/2019 of the OGA. The videos will be projected sequentially on one or more monitors. It is not possible to submit video installations or videos for screenings in loop. Note that, in every exhibition, will be shown also at last one titled and signed by the artist photo/still related to every selected video. This means that, if selected, the author have obviously to send a file of the video for the screening, but also (and this only by mail) at last one printed image in relation with the selected video, signed by the author himself, and with the title and the year. Videos not accompanied by at least one printed work will be excluded from the exhibitions. The author can decide the dimensions of the printed image, but please, do not send works that are too small... Very important: to send the printed and signed pictures please use the submission address, and not the OGA address. The material works (prints, etc) will not be returned to the authors. They will become part of the OGA Collection and used for future exhibitions. Obviously the authors will be advised on time, whenever. Finally: the OGA is not a profit space and can not pay fees or give hospitality, but each exhibition will be publicized on social networks, on the OGA facebook page, and on the OGA web page:
Deadline: 08/15/2018 | Location: Washington
Face it, things are bleak. Climate change, police brutality, gun violence, inequality, blatant racism, authoritarian populism threatening our democracy . . . you get the idea. It’s difficult not to feel discouraged and fearful. Outrage and fear are the primary notes struck in the press and amplified in the echo chambers of social media. It’s tempting for artists to just keep riffing on dystopian themes. How about, instead, artists make a conscious effort to shape our reality towards “the good life”? We are looking for artwork in which artists envision a hopeful future, to be exhibited in "OUR-TOPIA" at the Good Arts Gallery, May 2 - August 31, 2019. We are looking for work that doesn’t require the viewer to wonder what your vision is, i.e., art that is illustrative and representational rather than abstract. Submit 3 examples of existing work and a sketch or two of the piece you would create just for this show, along with a brief verbal description of your vision for a more hopeful future and what that would look like. Based on past work and the sketched outline of your idea, we'll invite artists to create work for the show. Deadline for submissions: August 15, 2018 Notification: September 1, 2018 Images due for publicity: March 1, 2019 Delivery of work: April 2019 Additional information and submission form is at:
