Qb³ presents [spot]

Parking spots (selected by DesignPhiladelphia) along S. Broad Street
17 October 2008, 6-8pm

Philadelphia artists and designers claim the urban parking spot — an idle space between the bustling streets and sidewalks of the city. We invite you to submit a visual proposal for [spot], a series of outdoor interventions that explore the potential dynamics of this momentary public space along Broad Street.

Proposals should evolve the notion that these spots — even if only for a few hours — can be occupied by design and engage with the public. Responding to the condition of the site (a 6’ x 12’ street parking space), entries should mark a moment in the urban landscape, emerge from the noise of SUV’s and double-parked UPS trucks, and provoke new thought on this disregarded public space.

Each submission should provide a clear understanding of the installation’s final design, concept and portability. Proposals must be submitted in a printed 11” x 17” format to be considered, with at least one image showing the proposed design integrated within a parking spot and how it is accessed or viewed by the public. All design/arts disciplines are encouraged to submit an entry for consideration. The competition is open to students, professionals, individuals and groups. The Philadelphia-based jury will select entries to be included in [spot] in conjunction with DesignPhiladelphia 2008.

– Susan Davis, Director, Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority Public Art Program
– Erik Olsen, Erik Olsen Graphic Design
– Janice Woodcock, AIA, KieranTimberlake Associates LLP

Requirements for Submission:(1). 11” x 17” printed board illustrating concept, mounted on foamcore (Layout should include at least one image and 150-word description of the concept). Entrants’ name(s) CANNOT appear on any part of the submission that goes to the jury. All submissions MUST be completely anonymous.(2). CD with digital image files at 300 dpi(3). Sealed envelope with project entry form.

Purpose of Art(ists) on the Verge
The Jerome Foundation supports several world-leading organizations such as Rhizome and Turbulence, who foster new media art practice and are important champions of such work.

Selection Criteria for the AOV Fellowship and Mentorship Programs
All applicants must be Minnesota residents and considered emerging artists. Evidence of some professional achievement is expected, but not an extensive record of accomplishment. Fulltime students are not eligible, with one exception. If an artist enrolls in an undergraduate or graduate degree program or takes classes while maintaining a current and active professional practice of creating and presenting work to the public, she/he is eligible. Artists may be supported as individuals or as equal collaborators.

Applicants should:

  1. Exhibit talent and interest in work produced at the intersection of art,
    media, technology, and social practice, particularly in ways that are social,
    collaborative and/or participatory. The quality of past work as
    demonstrated through work samples will be considered.

  2. Demonstrate a commitment as reflected in the Project Proposal and/ or
    Artist Statement in experimenting with the boundaries of one’s art practice.

  3. Demonstrate the ability to artistically accomplish in a timely manner an
    artwork for public presentation.

  4. Present a compelling Project Proposal (a less critical selection criterion for
    Mentorship Program)Please email AOV@northern.lights.mn if you have questions about eligibility.

Twin Tracks: Fellowships and Mentorships
A total of six commissions will be awarded. Three of the six commissions are outright fellowships for the production of new work and a joint exhibition in the spring/summer of 2009. The other three commissions are part of a 9-month, experimental mentoring program for the development, production and exhibition of new work. The Mentorship program begins in fall 2008 with an intensive 3-day “Boot-Up” Camp, October 10-12, co-presented with MCAD. Over the ensuing 9 months, artists will have bi-weekly individual and group mentoring sessions and critical workshops by visiting curators and artists on multiple occasions followed by a joint exhibition in the spring/summer of 2009 at a venue to be determined.

Smithsonian Craft Show 2009

National Building Museum
Washington, DC
April 23-26, 2009

All work submitted to the Smithsonian Craft Show must be created and made in the United States. The Smithsonian Craft Show encourages artists to continue to grow and stretch the limits of their media and is committed to presenting the most thoughtful, original, and skilled American craft objects. While the Smithsonian Craft Show is primarily looking for one-of-a-kind objects and limited production work that has been conceived and perfected by the artist's own hands and created in the artist’s studio, we accept the use of CAD/CAM and other industrial techniques and subcontracting in conjunction with hand processes. The committee and jury rely on the honor of the applicants to submit work in which these processes are simply tools, and have not become the driving force in the creative process.

Only U.S. residents who make their work in the U.S. are eligible to compete.

Acceptable media categories: basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, wearable art, and wood.

The Temple Gallery will host an Artist's Book Festival on October 4th & 5th with an exhibition to last the whole month of October. The Temple Gallery is hosting this festival to launch its permanent display of Artist's Books.

What is an Artist's Book?

An Artist's Book is an artwork inspired by the book format. Within the tradition of the book it draws from bookbinding, printmaking, design, fine art and a variety of other rich art and craft disciplines. A growing number of artist's choose this format as it can be a great way to bring narrative, collections and text & literature to their audience.

How do I make a book?

A book can be made by simply stitching, gluing or stapling paper together. Go on have a go...


The deadline for all applications is the 19th September unless you are exhibiting with your books on the festival open days.

The gallery would prefer all books to be held for one month (the length of the exhibition). After that selected books will be held by the gallery as permanent stock for sale.

Books should be supplied with a trade price & a suggested selling price.

If an artist wishes to show work on a sale or return basis then they are limited to 15 works. They may be for example 3 copies of five different books or 7 books and one or two copies of each.

The book to be considered for the prize should be clearly marked and an application form filled out accompanying it.

Books will only be returned when payment of postage is received. Postage can be paid by card or cheque.

Soap Box Prints 2: Prints, Politics & Democracy

(during the American Print Alliance's Print Dialogue Days)
September 25 - 27, 2008

The American Print Alliance is organizing a traveling exhibition of prints, paperworks and artists' books by artists who are 2008 subscribers to Contemporary Impressions or members of our allied councils. Our first venue will be at SCAD-Atlanta during our Print Dialogue Days, September 25 - 27, 2008.

Soap Box 1. A carton or crate used for holding soap. 2. A temporary platform like a shipping crate on which one stands while making a spontaneous and often impassioned public speech or call for action.

Show your work — and show the world how printmakers advocate for democracy!

Please read this prospectus carefully and follow all directions for entering:

Theme The theme will be interpreted broadly to include the principles, rights and responsibilities of democracy and how prints inspire people to choose democracy, defend freedoms (of speech and the press, religion, etc.), serve in elected office, vote, demonstrate for fair governance and otherwise take part in political life. Work must fit the theme but will not be rejected if it is controversial or does not reflect the views and opinions of the Alliance's director and board of representatives.

Selection Thirty to forty works will be selected based on interpretation of the theme and quality of the work. No attempt will be made to balance artists from different parts of the country, various techniques, or liberal or conservative ideas. Works will be chosen to create an exhibition that is visually exciting with multiple viewpoints that are thought provoking and even confrontational.

Entry Open only to ORIGINAL prints, paperworks and artists' books.

Works will be juried from slides, photos (4 x 6" minimum, to 8 x 10"), and digital photos printed on paper (color inkjet or laser printouts, on glossy or plain paper). Do not send digital files (jpegs, CDs) for jurying, print the file on paper.

Size and Presentation Prints, paperworks and artists' books that are flat may be any size up to the maximum frame size of 16 x 20 x 1 inch deep. Three-dimensional work must fold to fit in a protective box no larger than 16 x 20 x 1 inch provided by the artist, must be easy to open and close, and must include a system for hanging on the wall at venues that do not provide a table or pedestal. Maximum weight is 5 lbs. including the frame or box.

Administrative Fee Current subscribers to our journal, Contemporary Impressions: include $5 administrative fee with your submission of up to three works. Non-subscribers are eligible if they are members of one of our councils: include $35 (you'll receive a complImentary subscription). If you are not a member of one of our councils, you may subscribe for $37 and add the $5 fee, total $42 (just write one check). Full-time students may subscribe for just $15 and add the $5 fee. Artists whose work is selected must pay for shipping their work to and return from the Alliance.

Deadline for Submissions: October 1, 2008 (RECEIVE)

The Bookmark Project 2008: Insert

The Koffler Gallery
Koffler Centre of the Arts
Toronto, Ontario
October 30 to November 10, 2008

Guest Curator: Liya HyunJoo Choi
Held in conjunction with the Koffler Centre of the Arts 32nd Annual Jewish Book Fair

Part of FLEX… an ongoing program of site-works and interventions organized by the Koffler Gallery of the Koffler Centre of the Arts

About the Bookmark Project

For the seventh year in a row, the Koffler Gallery is organizing The Bookmark Project, an intervention of artist-designed bookmarks concurrent with the annual Jewish Book Fair organized by the Koffler Centre of the Arts. This year’s theme, Insert, explores the interplay between the reader and the bookmark in the act of reading. The reader inserts him/herself into a book, activating it with their emotions, memories, and thoughts. When the reader pauses, the act of inserting a bookmark tangibly signals a temporary exit while simultaneously indexing the point of re-entry into the text. As an insert, the bookmark becomes a place holder for the reader’s hands, eyes, and thoughts, marking territory and preserving their intimate relationship with the book. Denoting the reader’s absence, the bookmark’s presence echoes their memory inside the book. Upon returning, the reader once again replaces the bookmark in order to immerse back into the text. The act of reading therefore proceeds in the continual interchange between the reader and the bookmark, initiated and sustained by the process of ‘inserting’.

Both unique bookmarks and multiples created by fine art students and practicing artists will be introduced into the 8,000 books on display during the Koffler 32nd Annual Jewish Book Fair held from October 30 to November 10, 2008. The event draws an attendance of approximately 10,000. The bookmarks will also be on display in the Koffler Gallery showcase through November.


Bookmarks for the intervention should be functional and should not damage or scratch the books on display. Artists are requested to submit two original bookmarks: one for the public intervention that will not be returned, and one for display in the showcase. Artists whose bookmarks are selected for this project will receive a nominal artist fee, determined by the number of participating artists and issued by mail within 30 days of the close of the exhibition.

Results will be announced shortly afterwards.
