(SCENE) Announces A Call-For-Proposals: Mail Art

  #
EAST LANSING, Mich. - East Lansing's alternative art space, (SCENE) Metrospace announces a call-for-proposals for an upcoming exhibit of artwork which has traveled by post.

Mail art is art which uses the postal system as a medium. Mail artists typically exchange artistic works in any medium, including but not limited to: painting, drawing, collage, graphic design, sculpture, assemblage, video- or audio-based works, conceptual works, and installations. (SCENE) presents an in-depth investigation into this artform, which evolved between the 1950s and the 1990s, and was influenced by such art movements as Dada and Fluxus. The size and scope of each artwork depends on the artist.

For (SCENE)’s exhibit, the following definitions of Mail Art will be observed:

1. v. Like a message in a bottle mediated by the sea, so mail art switches hands and is thus transformed. 2. n. The last object touched by one’s self, representing one’s self for another to hold. 3. n. An artwork that considers the journey as much as the destination.

Artists of all types are invited to submit current, original works for this exhibit. The exhibit will take place from January 11, 2008 through February 24, 2008. All entry materials are due Friday, December 14, 2007, in order to be considered for exhibit. Early submissions are encouraged. Actual works must be received no later than Friday, January 4, 2008.

Entry materials must include a current artist's biography and/or artist resume, as well as an artistic statement to accompany the proposed artwork(s). Proposals may include images (.jpegs or .gifs) of actual or representative works, either on a CD mailed to the address below, or e-mailed to scenemetrospace@gmail.com.

  #

EAST LANSING, Mich. - East Lansing's alternative art space, (SCENE) Metrospace announces a call-for-proposals for an upcoming exhibit based on the concept and technique of collage.

Eminent Domain | Appropriation in Creative Practice

  #
 
Dispatx Art Collective | Curatorial Platform
 
Eminent Domain examines notions of blockage, recourse and resistance that can emerge in diverse contexts – and what it can mean when these manifestations are channelled into artistic product.

The seventh collection of Dispatx Art Collective includes works developed by visual artists, musicians, writers, dancers and performance artists. The collection, which can be seen in Show, includes works developed online as part of the site as well as submissions of completed work related to the theme. In addition, and as a part of an ongoing investigation of curatorial practice, the Eminent Domain forum will remain open throughout the duration of this collection.

The curatorial narrative is best articulated through a correspondance between various readings. While projects such as Hospital 106 4º1ª by Jordi Canudas and Isabel Banal and Someone Called Me... by Emma Wilcox are the works which most directly address the theme at hand, projects such as Green Screen by Neil Chapman and David Stent, or Ellen Zweig’s My Language Overwhelms Her Text, use literary fiction to generate multiple attempts and points of inflection.

We are also pleased to announce the start of exploration of works related to the theme Appropriation in Creative Practice, which can be followed over the coming six months in Make. These pieces, including works by Sandra Gamarra, Scott MacLeod, Åsa Ståhl and Adad Hannah, also include among them the projects funded through our inaugural commissions program. The completed collection will be published in March 2008.

We are open for submissions of completed work until the 26th of January 2008. For more information: dispatx.com/submissions/

About Dispatx
Dispatx Art Collective is the leading curatorial platform for the development and presentation of contemporary art and literature. Make is a showcase for work in progress related to the current theme, Appropriation in Creative Practice. Projects are developed online via integrated documentation tools allowing artists to post regular updates to their work in a continuous investigation of the creative method.

hello friends,
artists in antwerp are losing room to move every day, please share your wisdom and dreams at www.musicbox2007.tk


Dear friend of de muziekdoos
The first 'tmuziekdooscollectief meeting was a success, there was music, brainstorming, wine...
onboard were Frank, Jef, Jan, Inneke23, Stafke, Wim and Karo, Hans and Lieve. also a quick cameo by Etienne
Thanks to all for showing up!

This is what we came up with after several bottles of wine and lots of gracious sounds:

The general idea
• Keep the muziekdoos spirit alive – a place where there are instruments, amps, where everyone can come and play/jam/rehearse/experiment and maybe most importantly, meet likeminded people.
• Convince people of the importance of this muziekdoos-spirit if we want to keep real honest music alive. A place-to-be for musicians, poëts and other creative minds and friends. Cross pollination at its best.
How?
• MySpace will be used to promote our ideas, announce upcoming events, find contacts and supporters, post pictures, movies, art, poetry, etc
• A mobile acoustic setup is a temporary solution to keep this spirit alive. This setup could move to different locations and ideally, Etienne could be there too to play his wonderful tunes, serve the drinks and give usefull/useless comments on the live music : ) If the weather is fine, this location can be outdoors (we allready baptised the boarders of the scheldt at the sint-michielsstraat)
• Organize larger events (mini festivals) on different locations where bands can perform and a free podium is available. Get festival promotors/sponsors involved.
• Make a presentation that clearly outlines our plan and try to involve the culture department of Antwerp.
• Search a VZW that wants to be involved in organising events for us. (Creating a VZW ourselves is not a good plan).

Money!
• We also will continue to collect money with the mobiele muziekdoos to help Etienne to pay the state.
 
This about rounds up what was discussed and what 'tmuziekdooscollectief stands for.
Cheers!

Improvised Maps | Eminent Domain

  #
 
Dispatx Art Collective
 

We're pleased to announce the publication of the sixth edition of Dispatx, which coincides with a complete redesign of the website. Curating and developing works from poets, photographers, painters and writers, for this edition we once again present an extremely diverse set of responses to the notion of Improvised Maps. These works in Show include a dozen projects developed online over the last five months and seven additional submissions including work from Gonzalo Puch, Denis Masi, Andrea Brady and Daniel Canogar.

In addition the exploration of the theme Eminent Domain can now be followed on a daily basis. Until June 2007, the Make area of the site will feature the work of seventeen projects chosen to explore the theme. These include works by Emanuel Licha, Juan delGado, and Paulina Varas. The Studio, an integrated set of documentation tools, allows the artists to post regular updates to their work in a continuous investigation of the creative method - the organisational process that translates creative vision to creative product.

Through making comments on the artists' process in Make, site visitors form a part of this organic process. We have provided a set of tools allowing you to create private collections, leave comments, and subscribe to RSS feeds for the projects that interest you the most. To familiarize yourself with these changes, please take the site tour.

About Dispatx
Dispatx provides the tools of a socialised internet for the development and presentation of contemporary art and literature. Visitors are invited to interact with the artists via the online display of their working processes, and to create unique private collections of the finished works. Through this process we seek to establish a new curatorial discourse based on artistic working practices.

Robert Busby

  #
We are deeply saddened by the loss this week of Robert Busby, owner of Lansing's Creole Gallery. It was a sickening shock to hear of his death yesterday. Robert's gentle presence and defining role in re-shaping the Old Town neighborhood into an arts destination will never be forgotten. In a tangible way, Old Town itself is a physical manifestation of Robert's spirit, which was too big to be contained in a single person.  His vision for Old Town and all of the arts was contagious, and he inspired others to be leaders.  Our feelings stretch out to his family, friends, and all the people whose lives he enriched.

If we can make even half of the impact you made on art and on the community, we will feel we have done a good job. We miss you Robert.

Wishing for Synchronicity : Works by Pipilotti Rist

  #

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, USA
Dates: On View Through January 14, 2007
http://www.camh.or

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presents first U.S. survey exhibition for Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist

HOUSTON, Texas – This fall, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presents Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist, the first comprehensive U.S. survey of the seminal work of the Swiss video artist. Organized by curator Paola Morsiani, the project brings together Rist’s most significant work from the mid-1980s to the present. Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist is on view through January 14, 2007, touring nationally following its Houston presentation.

“Pipilotti Rist is a tremendously innovative and distinctly personal voice in contemporary art. As a master of her chosen media, she uses her large and small projections to place the viewer within her world, provoking the contemplation of broad issues through her individual actions,” said Contemporary Arts Museum Houston Director Marti Mayo. “We are proud to have organized her first survey exhibition in the U.S. for our diverse regional, national and international audiences, thereby continuing the Museum’s almost 60-year tradition of presenting the best and most exciting art of our time.”

Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist includes eight of Rist’s early single-channel videos, six large projections, and three additional works. The exhibition features a selection of significant works spanning her career, such as I’m Not the Girl Who Misses Much (1986) and Sip My Ocean (1996), in which pleasurable images and music quickly become metaphors for hysteria and suffocation, and Ever is Overall (1997), in which the camera follows a female walking through city streets, smashing car windows with an iron flower as she meanders.

“Through her use of video, Rist combines the worlds of art history and mass culture to create her own visual language,” said exhibition curator Paola Morsiani. “She uses this convergence to intelligently explore the power of our mind and its connection to the body as well as the pervasiveness of our sexual experience and its link to our mortality; and she expresses her profound empathy and hope for the times in which we live.”

Rist recently accepted a prestigious commission to create the visual identity for The Armory Show 2007, The International Fair of New Art, to be held next February in New York City.

Rist was born in 1962 in Switzerland, and studied at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria and the School for Design in Basel, Switzerland. Her work has been shown at the Venice Biennale; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. She lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland.

Eminent Domain | Call for Proposals

  #


In old English law, eminent domain refers to the power of the state to take private property without the owner’s consent. Since the mid-19th century it has been employed as part of large-scale development projects and urban renewal – controversial practices that can be extremely destructive for local communities. The policy is often implemented when there is a perceived obstruction blocking the progress of a particular project and powers of override must force its conclusion.

In investigating this theme we call for artists to recast the concept of eminent domain in the context of creative work. Here it becomes similar to recourse – in the face of blockade, alternative and often radical tactics may be resorted to in order for an idea to move forward. At a point of critical mass existing systems begin to fail, invoking a form of negation and opening up a space of uncertainty. This uncertainty may force a radical reformulation of a work at a crucial moment of its incompletion and potential.

The concept of regeneration is helpful in investigating this theme with regard to process revision and its relation to the creative method. Literally beginning again, regeneration suggests a recursive, self-referential procedure. It also indicates different approaches to revision: on one hand there can be subtle, incremental modifications of existing structures, systematically inching toward a result. On the other there can be a Kuhnian paradigm shift – a more radical action that can demand a clean slate from which to begin from scratch.

The interplay of these strategies and the conditions that formulate them are fascinating areas of exploration. To what extent are points of resistance and conflict essential for shaping creative decisions? Are great ideas born of frustration or along paths of least resistance? What kind of space does this recourse open up?

In this context, the theme of eminent domain speaks not only to literal interpretations concerning revised landscapes, power relationships and innovation from decay, but also to a broader theoretical reading about the space opened up by an enforced change of approach. The use of these concepts, either as the subject of investigation or as a guide to process and methodology, will result in a fascinatingly diverse group of projects for the next edition of Dispatx.

back in the attic again!

tim lane has decided to resurrect the attic!
"
Dear Friends,
 
I have found a new home for the attic which is desire.  We'll see how this works out.  I don't think that I'm going to post old work.  I don't know how often I'll have work to post.  But when I do have new work, I'll post it.
 
I guess that this is going to be more of a portfolio than anything, a lot less perhaps than what the attic used to be.  We'll see.

interactive digital stuff

  #

When Ben and I were in Mexico City recently, we saw an exhibit at the Rufino Tamayo Museum that just blew my mind! This artist, whose name is I believe Santiago Ortiz, uses sound and images, put together through what seem to my simple mind very mathematical processes, to bring you hours of fun! These are all digital interactive "sound and energy" pieces that are part of a larger collection of interactive computer pieces.  Who could pass up something with a name like "music over fractal land" and "sound sticky elastica structure?"  Wish I could explian it all better, but maybe someone else, who understands the mechanics of it all can add on a little tidbit of information for those of us whose last computer class was before e-mail even came about...

Enjoy!

CD Release March 25 / "They Die In Movies"

  #


Saturday, March 25th at Scene Metrospace Gallery, bear witness to the culmination of months of labor and love...

They Die In Movies is a narrative-based installation produced and directed by Jeni Mc, featuring fashions by Berry Noxon, and photography by Cody Hinze and Juan Beltran.  It is film-themed and has been variously described as "a movie that never happened" and "a look through a director's eye."  The exhibit takes place during the East Lansing Film Festival and continues on through May 13.



Simultaneously, It Takes A Village To Make Records will release the much-anticipated "First-Hand Accounts, Theories & Their Repercussions" CD compilation.  A double-length album on one CD, FHATATR is a genre-hopping collection of original independent music from all over the country.

The CD release will feature a giant mix CD swap!  Bring your own homemade mix CD to trade for a copy of the compilation CD -- other than that, it's FREE!  Bring an extra copy of your mix to trade with other release party-goers...

There will also be performances by Rai and Canada, as well as a screening of "Hello and Goodbye" by Detroit's Test Pattern Pictures.

We thank "They Die In Movies" for graciously hosting our CD release.

See you there!

Service-Works Grants

  #
This came in via Louis Rawlins:

"My name is Josh Greene. I am a 34 - year old artist and waiter. Service-Works is my own foundation that is designed to bridge the gap between my art career and my service industry career. Each month I dedicate one night’s worth of my tips to fund a project. For the past twelve years I have been doing art projects while making a living waiting tables. I currently work as a captain (quite similar to a waiter) in a fine-dining restaurant in San Francisco."

The deadline for February is the 21st, however there is one grant per month (of around $250).

I think this is a great idea (and ties directly into "Waiting...", which opened yesterday.)

Dispatx Art Collective : New Theme for Exploration

  #



Dispatx Art Collective
is calling for collaborative project proposals and submissions based on the current theme in exploration : The Plague of Language

The theme is underpinned by countless interconnected forms of communication, drawing on the rich history of human utterance and phonology: its consideration suggests a simultaneous reassessment of how we define language and semantics, and highlights an inherent philosophical discourse concerning how we can think about thought, or use language to explore language.

We are looking for collaborators to consider working with us as a part of our 'Work in Progress' area - demonstrating the process that translates creative vision into artistic output - as well as submissions of finished work aligned to the theme.

For more information, submission guidelines and schedule details, please visit www.dispatx.com

  #

Harrison Haynes is an accomplished painter, exhibiting mainly as a watercolorist.

Seth Jabour's illustrations have graced everything from magazine ads to Volkswagen manuals.

Syd Butler runs the successful FrenchKiss record label (featuring such homegrown Detroit-area talent as Thunderbirds Are Now!).  The label is hosting a design competition for their new T-shirt.

Anna and Tim Harrington have started an original textile company, Deadly Squire.

So who are these people?  And how are they connected?  What is their collective activity?
