Martin Webb captures images on night walks in his neighborhood and on road trips, looking for the common and the contrasting vernacular of both wild and urban landscapes.
Whether on foot or on the road, Webb seeks out new ways of seeing his everyday/familiar environments and absorbing new or novel places. In his studio, Webb works with this garnered source material in an open-ended, intuitive way to produce paintings, prints, and objects that are simple in form yet speak to complex relationships of materials and decay, culture and nature.
Gold Rush brings together three exceptional Bay Area artists: Ben Belknap, Crystal Morey, and Kyle Lypka. Gold Rush is a psychological voyage into human emotion that seduces our sense of reality and reveals each artist’s experience of the zeitgeist. Human figures and animals exist together in an intriguing hypnagogic realm. The application of gold luster (mostly 22k) combined with Belknap, Morey, and Lypka’s noteworthy technical skills bestows a sense of preciousness to each sculpture, as if the work was an artifact from each artist’s consciousness.
Event from 3 to 6pm. Refreshments, including Numi Tea, will be served. Artist talk begins at 4pm
Music Theatre NOW - international open call for competition entries of music theatre works (opera and music theatre, in all genres, with particular interest in works outside the Western European tradition).
Selected creators and presenters will be invited to the 11th triennial Music Theatre NOW conference in Rotterdam in May 2016 to present their work.
Deadline: 30 June 2015
Eligibility: Works made by opera and theatre institutions, works created by festivals, works created by individuals – we are open to all forms of professional opera and music theatre which explore new frontiers.
All kind of works, which demonstrate a new development in the genre, be it in score, text and/or staging, can be entered. An important criterion for entering the competition is that the production is a first staging and has a newly composed score. Also, singing does not necessarily have to be part of the production. Works by so-called non-academic composers and works without a written score may be entered.
Special attention will be given to works, whose musical and theatrical vocabulary originates outside the Western European tradition. As a guideline for those regions in which categories such as music theatre or opera are not defined: all interdisciplinary work will be considered, in which music plays a dominant role.
Music theatre productions can be entered for the next competition which premiered between July 2012 and June 2015.
As you can see from the list of past winners, both internationally established composers and theatre-makers as well as lesser-known artists and newcomers participated in the last edition of Music Theatre NOW. You will also find that we are interested in works of all shapes and sizes – created for opera houses, festivals, tiny venues, even living rooms, as well as other site-specific works.
This year’s jury are prominent professionals from the five continents: Sara Joan Fang (music producer for Singapore’s national performing arts centre Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay), Guy Coolen (director of the production company ‘Muziektheater Transparant’ and artistic director of the international opera festival ‘Operadagen’ in Rotterdam), as well as Joseph V. Melillo (executive producer of the ‘Brooklyn Academy of Music’), Ana Lara (Mexican composer and founder of the festival ‘Música y Escena’) and and Brett Bailey (South African playwright, designer and director, who continues his commitment from the 2012 jury).
The opportunity to attend Music Theatre NOW, a meeting for creators and presenters of contemporary music theatre, and to give a special presentation of your work. A maximum of two members of the artistic team will be invited.
You will give a presentation of the work in the form of a lecture/demonstration with sound and video excerpts at the 11th triennial meeting Music Theatre NOW, May 26-28 2016 in Rotterdam.
This meeting, previously called the Music Theatre Workshop, has served as a forum for professionals for many years.
Travel, accommodation and meals for the artists representing the work will be provided by the host organization. Curators and presenters from around the globe will be invited to attend the meeting, which will be held as part of the Operadagen Rotterdam – an international festival of contemporary theatre and opera.

The Surveillance Awareness Bureau (SAB) intends to create a space of critical engagement that grants visibility to systems that by nature should remain invisible to individuals and at the same time provoke a highly charged debate on privacy, liberty, control and abuse.
This pop-up office –located in a vacant retail space in Wellington's CBD– features some of the alternatives that artists, designers, scholars and journalists can propose to highlight the tension and risks between seeing and not seeing the effects of technologies in our quotidian. It exalts the vulnerability of humans in that constant non-illuminated space that is control framed by unawareness.
Curated by Modelab, the project brings together international artists: Zach Blas (USA), James Bridle (UK), Paolo Cirio (IT/USA), Simon Denny (NZ), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (MEX), Hemi Macgregor (NZ), Ruben Pater (NL) and Terri Te Tau (NZ).
Not a single day passes without news of trust breaches and information misuse of data in all levels, from the common individual to states and international organizations. But while certain technologies can be considered even as predators for privacy, there is already counterarguments that choose the same technologies and deploy them as tool of resistance or as a crucial democratic element that can link individuals with the wider social and political environment they live in.
The Surveillance Awareness Bureau draws attention to the multiple ambiguous forms of vigilance that could be positioned along a spectrum from “care” to “control”—from watching to enhance the care and safety, to suspiciously scrutinize one’s attitudes and behaviors in order to govern, or influence someone else will upon individuals, societies and states.

I'm American (Happy 4th Edition) is an attempt to question the notion of nationalism and patriotism in relation to one’s psychological and emotional state through spoken language. On July 4th, 2013, using the fireworks as a backdrop, JOANNA TAM repeatedly said "I'm American" for the whole duration of the Independence Day fireworks celebration in Kingston, NY.
While performing her action, some people who were originally there to watch the fireworks started to interact with her. A young man shouted "You are not" at her multiple times. A woman came up to Tam, put a glow necklace around her neck and gave her a hug. Some people stood next to her and said "I'm American" with her in front of the camera.

Undermining the Institution an Evolving [an]Archive

We want to see digital material in any format which relates to specifically to the Architecture of the Institution - and ways in which it can be subverted. This activity could involve plans, excavations, extractions, subversions, criticisms - by selecting an institution and actively mining the fabric upon which its 'institutional' structure and status rests.
You can view previous editions of [dis]Corporate Bodies by following the link below. The Unstitute thrives on the motivation of contributors - all submissions are treated with respect - but we do encourage all applicants to read the project brief here, as well as to explore The Unstitute to see a little more about what we are trying to build.

For two years Hobart-based artist Anita Bacic has been meeting with people from West Moonah (formerly known as Springfield) and Moonah to capture their stories about post WW2 life as part of her Rediscovering Springfield project in Australia. A look back at what it was like living in the ʻ50s, ʻ60s and ʻ70s in the area from a migrant perspective in a Tasmanian context.
The end result of this community engagement is an/other time art walk. Bacic encourages people to participate by walking along the streets of Moonah starting at the Moonah Arts Centre. To experience the work one uses an iPod or iPhone with a custom made app created by Tim Nugent. The app is available on the Apple app store: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/an-other-time/id985476954
an/other time has a particular focus on migrants in the second half of the 20th Century. It is a location-specific media project that uses mobile devices, combined with printed maps to allow users to unearth stories while walking along Albert Road, Hopkins Street and Main Road in Moonah.
The work an/other time adds another chapter in the history of Tasmania. It shares the personal untold stories from the post WW2 migrants who came to Tasmania in the mid 20th Century. Their contribution to the building and adding to this state is not often talked about or acknowledged in Tasmaniaʼs history.
This work aims to do much more than simply re-tell stories from the past; it encourages the participant, to extend, personalise and reconsider experiences while they interact with both their mobile device and the street. This interaction invites the participant to reconsider or re-imagine the past as they look at and experience the now. This blending of perceptions of the present with ideas of the past, can prompt questions like, What was it like? What was there? Who lived/worked there?
Original music by Teresa Drozdz and audio visual work by Angela Strk can be experienced in an/other time
To experience the work go to: Moonah Arts Centre 23-27 Albert Road, Moonah, Hobart
Opening hours are: Tue – Fri 10am – 5pm, and Sat 10am – 2pm.
Until June 1 there are devices one can loan. After June 1, download the app and go to the Moonah Arts Centre for your first installment of the work.
