A HANDMADE ASSEMBLY: Call for Proposals

 

We invite Artists and Writers from across Canada and abroad to submit proposals for an upcoming publication exploring the theme of the Handmade.

Deadline for submissions: January 5, 2021

The origins of this publication are rooted in a long-running annual event hosted by Struts Gallery and the Owens Art Gallery that brought together artists, curators, and makers from the region and beyond to lead discussions, facilitate workshops, initiate projects, exhibit work, and share in a common thread—the handmade.

A Handmade Assembly originated in response to an increased interest in the handmade, deskilling, and DIY aesthetics that emerged in contemporary art practices near the beginning of the decade. The topic continues to appeal to artists exploring the extraordinary potential of craft processes, materials, and techniques, both for their capacity to speak directly and viscerally and for their political and historical potency.

For its tenth and final iteration, the long-running programme will be re-envisioned as an ambitious, bilingual book project that parlays nine years’ worth of inquiry into a comprehensive volume, with the goal of providing a multi-faceted view of the role of the handmade in contemporary art, while also extending these discussions to a new format.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Artists Projects in Print

Deadline January 5, 2021

A Handmade Assembly has always encompassed a wide range of artistic practices and areas of research, including photography, performance, mending practices, food culture, collage, printmaking, flower arranging, and the intersection of new technologies with traditional craft approaches. We invite artists working in all disciplines to consider how the broad theme of the “handmade” might translate to a project on the printed page. Artists may document existing projects or produce new works. We encourage play within the format of the book, including handmade tactile elements, instructional works, creative writing, printed cut-outs, pull-out and tipped-in materials (bearing in mind cost, labour and edition size), etc.

Submission Format for Artists:
Please submit the following materials via WeTransfer to info@strutsgallery.ca with the subject heading: A Handmade Assembly

  • One-page (max.) description of the proposed project and the themes addressed
  • Up to 10 images of past work
  • Descriptions for each image including: title, date, materials, dimensions, etc.
  • A brief biography (250 words)
  • A brief artist statement (250 words)
  • Curriculum vitae (max. 3 pages), including contact information.
Artists will be paid fees consistent with the current CARFAC fee schedule. We encourage applications from IBPOC, LGBTQ2S+, disabled, and neuro-diverse artists.

For more information about submitting your work visit our site (here) or the call (here)

CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
Critical Texts, Essays, Interviews, Creative Writing, etc.

Deadline January 5, 2021

A Handmade Assembly has dedicated nine years towards pushing back against dominant art narratives that marginalize craft practices and has worked to foster and support an appreciation of the myriad art forms encompassed by the term handmade. We invite writers to interpret the topic of the “handmade” broadly, with the aim of presenting a multi-faceted view of the role of the handmade in contemporary art. Writers are encouraged to propose critical, historical or interpretive essays, interviews, creative writings, and so forth that address the intersection of contemporary art and the handmade. Ideally, we are seeking texts ranging from 500 to 1000 words.

Submission Format for Writers:
Please submit the following materials via WeTransfer to info@strutsgallery.ca with the subject heading: A Handmade Assembly

  • A brief one-page (max) proposal for an essay, interview or other text work

OR

  • A completed piece that has not been previously published (max. 1000 words);
  • Two writing samples which demonstrate your style and interests;
  • A brief biography of no more than 250 words;
  • Curriculum vitae (max. 3 pages), including contact information.
Writers will be paid $1.00/word for a word count of up to 1000. We encourage applications from IBPOC, LGBTQ2S+, disabled, and neuro-diverse writers.
For more information about submitting your work visit our site (here) or the call (here)
A Handmade Assembly is made possible through support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture.

Requests for Proposals

PROFESSIONAL ARTIST / ART LOVER

Dialogue New Brunswick (DNB) will receive applications from professional artists or art lovers, with a rich and extensive culture in the arts, an excellent knowledge of New Brunswick’s artistic community, and who are familiar with interpreting artwork until November 23, 2020.  The successful candidate will accompany Dialogue NB in the design and implementation of the “Artistic Expression” component of its upcoming public consultation. 

CONTEXT

Dialogue NB is a non-profit organization, led by a volunteer board of directors, with a mandate to help the Province of New Brunswick to be a more socially cohesive community.

As part of its mandate, Dialogue NB will launch a public consultation at the end of November to survey the state of New Brunswick on social cohesion in depth and amplify New Brunswickers’ voices. This consultation is part of a two-step process.

Phase 1: During the first 6 months (November 30, 2020 to May 31, 2021), all New Brunswickers will be invited to express themselves on what social cohesion means to them (ideal vision, challenges, issues, etc.). They will have the choice between six ways of expression, which will open up as the consultation progresses. From November, a survey (online), an open forum (online), and the opportunity for representatives of organizations to meet and talk at the Government House will be offered. In early 2021, three new components will gradually be added : “Public Dialogue,” “Artistic Expression” and “Youth” (Little Childhood, Primary, Secondary). The findings of the consultation will be made public at the end of this six months. They will also be submitted to the Lieutenant-Governor, the Honourable Brenda Murphy, in addition to the Premier and other key decision-makers in New Brunswick.

Phase 2: Based on the results of this consultation and its data, Dialogue NB will define a reading grid of the province’s social cohesion challenges: this grid will serve as a basis for reflection on the development of solutions by and for New Brunswickers. The duration of the second phase will be six (6) months, starting in June 2021 until December 2021.

MISSION

Accompanying Dialogue NB in the design and implementation of the “Artistic Expression” component of its upcoming public consultation:

  • Solicit public interest in this area.
  • Encourage New Brunswickers to express themselves through the artistic path(s) of their choice about what social cohesion means to them. Invite them to submit their works to Dialogue NB (Painting, collage, sculpture, photography, dance, music, literary work, poetry, embroidery, beading… The possibilities are infinite!).
  • Analyze and interpret each work of art addressed to Dialogue NB.
  • Write a full report for Dialogue NB on messages delivered under this component.

DESIRED PROFIL

  • Rich and extensive general culture in the arts
  • Excellent knowledge of New Brunswick’s arts community
  • Sharp skills in art analysis
