Letters to the Predator Featuring: Jennie Ottinger Show Runs January 10 - February 28, 2015 Reception: Saturday, January 10, 2-5pm
Chew with your mouth closed. Don't talk back. We're taught to be polite, sometimes, at all costs. In her newest exhibition, Letters to the Predator, Jennie Ottinger takes a tip from the animal kingdom (and "The Real World") and throws propriety out the window in favor of carnal instinct and survival. Ottinger asks: "what happens when people stop being polite... and start getting real?"
Ottinger paints human scenarios where manners and refinement break down - from a gruesome football tackle to a questionable circus extravaganza. Ottinger's painted creatures live on the brink between human and not, their peachy facial features dripping and shifting before your eyes. A mouth, shifted just so, looks more like a maw, and eyes lack any semblance of consciousness - or conscience.
The show also features a series of soft-sculptures, thrift store teddy bears that have undergone botched surgeries and barely lived to tell the tale. The formerly adorable creatures, mutated and deformed, have no interest in being polite, their chopped and screwed features are visual manifestations of innocence left out to rot.
In Ottinger's a-moral kingdom, being polite is a privilege that too many can't afford. Her power plays, verging between mischievous and savage appear altogether alien, yet still a bit too close too home.
The Art and Technology Program in the School of Art at the The California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) is currently accepting applications for its two year Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree. The Art and Technology Program is defined by trans-disciplinary practices that question contemporary culture through art, media, technology, performance and social participation.
We provide a project based curriculum and a faculty of full time artists who are dedicated to helping students realize new technical and creative competencies while enhancing their critical thinking skills. It is a pedagogy that is specifically designed to expand or transform one's art practice through creative research.
The program includes a collaborative workspace that contains individual studios, access to digital media and fabrication facilities, creative research workshops and shared classes throughout the CalArts campus.
The curriculum encompasses group critiques, technical and critical seminars, independent studies, classes in cultural theory and a strong emphasis on individual mentoring. Each student meets frequently with their mentor for feedback and evaluation during their two years of study. In addition to discussion of the student's work, our rigorous critiques and seminars interrogate current social, political and aesthetic issues that inhabit the intersections of culture, art and technology.
Recent graduates have produced work resulting in projects such as object based media, digital video installation, interactive interventions, performance based media, kinetic sculpture, computer generated media and socially engaged educational initiatives.
Past visiting artists, writers and curators include: Mark Allen/Machine Project, Sheldon Brown, Paul Chan, Matt Coolidge/CLUI, Jordan Crandall, Ricardo Dominguez, Fallen Fruit, Yolande Harris, Julia Holter, Perry Hoberman, LoVid, Daniel Martinez, Mary Mattingly, Karen Moss, Anne Marie Oliver, Geraldine Ondrizek, Ed Osborn, Andrea Polli, Randall Packer, Lee Ranaldo, Lea Rekow,Edward Shanken, Nathaniel Stern, Michael Smith, Mark Tribe, Holly Willis, The Yes Men, Marina Zurkow
The University of Washington Bothell (UWB) seeks a dynamic educator and professional to guide students in applying theories and practices of interactive media design in an immersive studio environment. Industry experience as a senior contributor or leader of end-user software development and/or related digital media projects is preferred.
The Studio Director is a hybrid teaching/administrative position that serves as a cornerstone of the campus’s IMD major. The successful candidate will have a faculty appointment in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS) or the School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), and will join a campus that values interdisciplinarity, diversity, and engaged forms of research and teaching. This is a multi-year appointment with a 9-month service period.
IMD’s cohort-based, 2-year program consists of paired studio and practicum classes in five of six quarters, in addition to electives. The Studio Director is responsible for teaching the sequence of practicum courses in which students design, prototype, and pilot interactive media products ( [www.bothell.washington.edu] ). The role requires the management of a diverse portfolio of student projects and coordination with internal and external stakeholders, including faculty members, students, and staff across campus, regional organizations and businesses, and UW Bothell’s Digital Future Lab ( [www.bothell.washington.edu] ). We are especially interested in applicants who can connect students to the broader technology community in the region.
Specific requirements for this role include:
• Passion for working with undergraduate and graduate students who have broad backgrounds and limited experience by leading, championing, managing, instructing, critiquing, mentoring, advising, and supporting them, as needed, in mastering the concepts and skills needed to succeed in their career aspirations. • Record of teaching success in studio environments and evidence of success in working with diverse student and community populations. • Familiarity with current production and design methodologies and tools, facility with all aspects of interactive media development, and software development and/or related digital media production background (professional expertise and experience leading cross-discipline teams preferred). • Masters or PhD degree or significant industry experience is required at time of appointment.
The University of Washington Bothell houses an array of undergraduate and graduate programs, is located in the Seattle metropolitan area, and provides faculty members with access to the research and funding resources of the UW as a whole. Co-housed in the Schools of IAS and STEM, the major in IMD is part of a dynamic digital media production ecology on and off campus. Along with related degrees in IAS (media and communication studies; interdisciplinary arts) and STEM (applied computing), IMD educates students to become critical, collaborative, and creative media producers, artists, and designers. In this way, the major contributes to the campus’s broader commitment to the linkage of theory and practice through scholarship and curricula that are relevant to diverse student populations.
When hired through a national search, Lecturers and Artists-in-Residence are eligible for renewable multi-year appointments, promotion, and sabbatical, among other benefits available to full-time UW faculty members.

An interactive sound installation by Ellen Moffat January 17 - February 15, 2015 co-presented with Charles Street Video Fridays 1-4 pm; Saturdays and Sundays 10am-3 pm (plus Family Day) NAISA Space, 601 Christie Street #252 Join the artist for a performance demonstration on January 18, 1-4 pm
Playing with Gertrude is an interactive installation for sound and image creation inspired by Gertrude Stein’s writing. Moffat's approach to Stein's work is to use objects, materials, punning and spatial relationships to reveal or obscure Stein's text Tender Buttons, combining Dadaist, conceptual and theatrical elements with analogue and digital techniques. Participants perform the installation through direct contact, actions and interactions, triggering spoken word recordings and creating experimental sound through extended techniques. The core objects – chair(s), a table, a book - are simultaneously props, players and audience. Additional objects and materials connect to the text with delay, reverb and spatialised sound. The artist would like to thank the Saskatchewan Arts Board for their financial support.
New Adventures in Sound Art will once again participate in the Arts Birthday celebrations this year and will feature an interactive installation by Ellen Moffat and performances by Peter Courtemanche and Anna Friz. Happy One Million and Fifty-second Birthday, Art!

(photo: Kara Maria, Seagull, 2014, acrylic on canvas, 24 x 24")
Exhibition and reception for current artists-in-residence Kara Maria, Imin Yeh and student artist Matthew Goldberg on Friday, January 23, from 5-9pm and Saturday, January 24, from 1-3pm. Additional viewing hours will be held on Tuesday, January 27, from 5-7pm, with a gallery walk-through with the artists at 6:30pm. This exhibition will be the culmination of four months of work by the artists who have scavenged materials from the dump to make art and promote recycling and reuse.
Kara Maria: A Trash Menagerie Painter Kara Maria combines abstraction and representation to address subjects that range from the personal to the political. During her residency she has turned her focus to her immediate environment, making work in response to the Recology site. Using found stretched canvases, including amateur paintings and digitally printed, mass-produced artwork from Ikea, Maria has overpainted the works with recycled acrylic paint from the Household Hazardous Waste Program. The abstract portions of her paintings speak to the environment of the Recology facility, a constantly churning and tumultuous place whose frenetic nature is conveyed in Maria’s disjointed shapes and vibrant colors. The representational portions of her work reflect another aspect of the facility—the living creatures that inhabit or pass through the site. Interspersed within her paintings are detailed renderings of seagulls, raccoons, hawks, and other animals.
Though there is an element of playfulness simply by the animals’ presence within the works, Maria’s representation of them also has a more somber tone. Each animal seems imbued with a conscious awareness of their situation, and in some cases gaze out from the canvas as if pleading with the viewer to stop the metaphorical vortex of trash that they are surrounded by. Maria’s paintings speak to the interconnected lives of humans and animals, and the impact our trash and desire to consume has on the natural environment.
Imin Yeh: Goldbricking Used in labor, “goldbricking” is a term that means pretending to be productive. Its origins are in trickery and the act of conning someone by painting a brick gold. Though it could hardly describe Yeh’s dedicated work ethic, its use suggests a wry joke about her studio practice which is characterized by labor-intensive and often repetitive processes.
Yeh’s art has consistently explored issues of labor and production. While at Recology she has been struck by the volume of corporate waste, and has scavenged the detritus of businesses and offices. Trade show banners have been sliced up and coated with shades of white house paint, their marketing jargon still ever so slightly visible, alluding to the transient nature of their messages. From discarded hotel uniforms, Yeh has created a textile work of monochromatic, geometric forms. Slight variations in the shade and texture of the fabrics reflect the wear and laundering of each garment, and are suggestive of the individual experiences of each worker. In each case, Yeh's attention to these subtle variations of color commemorates the often unseen individual and creative choices we make, regardless of how mundane they might seem.
Yeh’s roots in printmaking are also evident. Her limited edition artist book features snippets of handwritten notes printed from letterpress type she carved from old Ikea shelves, paired with woodcuts of discarded children’s drawings. Other works include collages on found slides and paper four-leaf clovers hidden quietly throughout the Recology facility as small interventions. And, of course, there are gold bricks. Neat and uniform, each brick is laboriously sculpted from corporate conference signs, spackled, sanded, primed, and painted—a tremendous amount of work in order to produce what Yeh describes as, “an object with neither the function of a brick nor the value of gold.”
Matthew Goldberg: Space Trash, Boomerang! What would happen if our trash was launched into space in a misguided attempt to rid the planet of waste, only to orbit and return to earth? This is the premise for the artwork Matthew Goldberg has made during his Recology residency. In sculpture, photography, collage, and installation, he explores trash as an extraterrestrial force—both familiar and foreign, from the past and seemingly also from the future. Says Goldberg, “The narrative is a fantasy—much like our perceptions of space and much like the general public's perception of a 'dump' facility I have encountered when explaining this program.” Music is another outcome of his residency, which will be performed live by the appropriately named Sputnik (Goldberg and his brother) at the exhibition reception.

In the past, a diverse set of curators has chosen work by artists from around the world, including Claudia Maté, Yoshi Sodeoka, Zoe Leonard, Hector Canonge, and many others. Prior event programs can be found here.

Applications are due on January 15, 2015,
Residencies will begin on February 1, 2015.
ISCP announces its first residency program developed specifically for New York City-based artists. Beginning in 2015, this program will offer up to seven year-long residencies that will include a subsidized, private studio in East Williamsburg and access to professional development programs. The residencies will take place within the same building as ISCP’s acclaimed international residency program, and artists will have access to ISCP’s dynamic, in-house community of artists and curators from all over the world.
This program will offer much-needed affordable workspace to New York City artists, while expanding ISCP’s international community to include local artists. Artists at all career stages and working across all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Artists who collaborate can also apply to share a large studio and related costs. If accepted, artists must provide proof of New York City residency (e.g. income tax returns or utility bills) for the past two years.
Separate from ISCP’s international residency program, where residents are fully sponsored, the New York City-based artist studios, from 200-350 square feet in size, will cost $700-900 per month. This includes 24-hour access to a furnished studio, kitchen and lounge, WiFi, administration and all utilities. Artists may participate in professional development workshops by leaders in the field that will provide tools and strategies for fundraising, studio visits, and artist writing among other issues.
There will be the possibility to renew the studio for a second year.
Residents will be chosen by a jury of art professionals through a competitive process.

Summer and Fall Education Fellows receive a fully funded 3-4 month residency depending on the season in exchange for extensive participation in the Wassaic Project’s education programming, which connects the local community to contemporary artists and artistic practices.
Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the board of directors and professionals in the field. They will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

Twenty-Three Days at Sea
Travelling Artist Residency
Access Gallery invites submissions for its new Travelling Artist Residency Program, in partnership with Burrard Arts Foundation and with Contraste agence d’art, titled Twenty-Three Days at Sea. Unlike traditional residencies, which offer artists accommodation at a stationary site for a designated period with the aim of producing a new body of work, Twenty-Three Days at Sea is utterly unique: it will offer selected artists passage aboard a cargo ship sailing from Vancouver, Canada to Shanghai, China. Crossing the Pacific Ocean takes approximately twenty-three days, during which time the artist will be considered “in residence” aboard the vessel. The inaugural two residents will be sent to sea in August and September 2015.
The world’s first purpose-built container ship departed from North Vancouver in 1955; since this date, small handfuls of visual artists and writers across the globe are known to have boarded freighters to escape the banal, to generate ideas, and to consider the many implications of this mode of travel. Distinct from the myriad of residency opportunities now available to artists worldwide, Twenty-three Days at Sea is the first known program developed by an artist-run centre to support emergent and experimental artists in particular, offering them a profoundly generative time and space for the creation of provocative new ideas and work and, with the aim of critical dialogue and reflection, to present that work before audiences in our own port city.
In keeping with our organizations’ mandates, proposals will be considered from emergent artists working in any and all media, and from those who have entered a new, experimental phase of their practice. Submissions will be adjudicated by committee and successful candidates will be notified in early March, 2015.
Applicants are encouraged to propose projects that consider issues resonant with sea travel and with the ubiquitous but, for most of us, largely invisible world of the global shipping industry. These may include, but are by no means limited to, matters of trans-Pacific connectivity, traffic and trade; maritime histories and culture; and, significantly, notions of time and space, since crossing a great expanse of water is experienced far differently on an ocean vessel than by more conventional air travel. The voyage may challenge and uproot artists’ ideas of their own practice, its comforts and its parameters, and will offer an invaluable space of quiet for focused research, imagination and creation in the unconventional studio space of the cargo ship cabin.
The objective of this Residency Program is to encourage the production of new artwork (which, depending upon the artists’practices, may take place aboard the vessel or in the months following); to facilitate Residency artists’ engagement with new networks in Asia, considering linkages between places on opposite sides of the Pacific Ocean; and to introduce this new body of work to audiences in Vancouver through a subsequent exhibition. For the extent of the residency voyage, artists will also be requested to keep a daily “log.” Subsequently published by Access, these log books, which may or may not comprise the new work produced, will accumulate as an ongoing collection of book works, chronicling diverse responses to a shared experience of being at sea.
The Residency will cover the cost of travel aboard the freighter (single cabin and all meals), accommodations for four days in China, and return airfare back to Vancouver.
Residency artists are expected to fund their own travel to and from Vancouver (the point of departure)
Residency artists must prove their own purchase of international travel insurance and to secure all necessary travel documents.
To maximize the artists’ experience upon arrival in Asia, our partner Contraste agence d’art will use its formidable resources in Asia to offer Residency artists an orientation to the art communities of Shanghai upon their arrival. * Artists are free to travel at their own cost within Asia following disembarkation, provided details are arranged in advance for the purpose of booking return airfare from Shanghai.
CONDITIONS AT SEA
Artists must understand that there is no internet on board. Email is reserved only for ship’s business.
Residency artists must produce medical certificates proving good health. There are generally no doctors on board. The vessel has a well-stocked ship’s dispensary and a treatment room. The Captain and officers have the necessary skills to give first aid and are also able to provide further treatment
Since this is a working ship (with no elevators), there are unfortunately no facilities for individuals requiring wheelchairs, walking sticks or crutches, etc.
All meals are taken in the officer’s mess
Residency Artists must in all cases respect and in no way interfere with the ship’s business while aboard the vessel.
Residency Artists are expected to arrive in Vancouver prepared to work independently on his/her work for the duration of the residency in whatever capacity that is possible or to use the voyage to gather research in order to produce the new work independently following the close of the residency.
Sea voyages can be unpredictable and the Artist must prepare for and manage any unexpected obstacles resulting from his/her time at sea (ie. Seasickness). Access Gallery, Burrard Arts Foundation and Contraste agence d’art cannot be held responsible for delays in the production of work due to these obstacles. The Artist assumes responsibility for all costs of the research, production and shipment of any work produced while at sea.
In keeping with our organizations’ mandates, this residency invites emergent artists, or artists entering an experimental phase of their practice, to submit proposals. We accept work in all forms of media, time based, process, research based, exhibition focus, social practice etc.
Access will accept ELECTRONIC submissions only in the following format:
+ one page cv
+ artist statement (maximum 250 words)
+ a residency proposal (maximum 500 words) accompanied by a maximum of 5 images (if applicable)
+ maximum 10 images of relevant previous work
+ please format your proposal into a single pdf (under 20 mb)
SUBMIT to: firstname.lastname@example.org
DEADLINE: Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Please title your email subject line 23 Days at Sea

Located in Blanca, Spain, Centro Negra is an innovative and socially-engaged residency offering a space for reflection, collaboration, and production for artists and researchers working at the intersection of art, the social sciences, and community development. Blanca is a mountain village located in the Murcia region of southern Spain.
About Centro Negra
Centro Negra is organized by Aktuelle Achitektur de Kultur (AADK), an artistic net- work with members from Lisbon, Portugal, Berlin, Germany, and Murcia, Spain. Founded in 2007, AADK is interested in research projects that explore the body, space, and territory. We support cultural de-centralization and rural development through artistic production and creation, and consider the village of Blanca and its surroundings to be an integral part of our activities. We foster audience creation and development in this rural context by maintaining a strong relationship to Blanca as well as by developing training programmes with local partners. We are also part of a network of artistic and cultural spaces in other areas of Europe that allow us to promote mobility and exchange for our visiting artists at a national and international level.
About the Residency
Centro Negra offers residencies of 1 to 2 months in duration. We are currently seeking artists and researchers for the next round of residencies lasting between February and December 2015. The residency spaces are a string of small structures built in early 20th century that formerly served as the farm for a nearby villa. Only accessible by foot, the spaces are nestled in the cradle of a mountain on the former site of a 12th century Moorish Castle. Recently renovated, these modern, minimal spaces put occupants in direct contact with the landscape: large areas of glass provide views of the village and surrounding Ricote Valley while exposed rock walls lend a unique character to the exhibition and working spaces.
Working at Centro Negra
Away from the demands of city life, residents will find themselves in a space where they have an expanded capacity for reflection and production. AADK facilitates this experience by providing residents with: curatorial and organizational support, basic tools and supplies, and technical equipment; communications structures in the form of promotions as well as connecting artists to other art institutions in the region; and facilitating open dialogue through organizing critiques, guest visits, seminars, and workshops.
Committed to a direct, engaged, hands on approach, we are interested in facilitating research and knowledge building about how rural environments can move forward in the current era of mass urbanization, from a social, economical, and environmental perspective. We believe in the importance of process and experimentation, in resisting the violence of fast time, and in connecting the rural and the urban, the local and global.
By facilitating encounters between visiting artists, the landscape, and local communities, Centro Blanca offers an unparalleled opportunity for thinking together in a time of globalization and crisis.
Please send residency proposals including: a completed registration form, research proposal including goals for the residency (maximum length of 1000 words), and a resume in PDF form to email@example.com. Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis. The projects will be selected by a committee composed by members of AADK platform. A minimum of two years of experience in your field is required.
To receive the application form send us an email to : firstname.lastname@example.org

An opportunity to RESPOND: Smack Mellon Open Call Deadline: December 28 Application fee: none
After hearing about the grand jury's decision to not indict Daniel Pantaleo, Smack Mellon has postponed a planned exhibition* in order to respond to the continued failure of the United States to protect its black citizens from police discrimination and violence. In order to channel our outrage into actions that can facilitate systemic change, Smack Mellon's gallery space will be used to present events, performances and artworks that address the institutional racism that allows for the police to murder black men.
The exhibition dates for RESPOND are January 17- February 22, 2015.
Smack Mellon's current Studio Artists Esteban del Valle, Molly Dilworth, Oasa DuVerney, Ira Eduardovna, Steffani Jemison, and Dread Scott will work with Smack Mellon staff as lead organizers.
We hope you will join us in sending this important message about injustice from the artistic community out to a broader public.
RESPOND: Exhibition information:
RESPOND is a powerful and diverse collection of curated artworks, artifacts, objects, performances, and public programs that respond to the context of police violence. Artists working at all levels and in all media are invited to apply for inclusion in the group exhibition. We hope to provide an exhibition opportunity that enables emerging artists, established artists, and young people to share their work side-by-side.
All submissions will be reviewed in the order that they are received. The submission deadline is Sunday, December 28, but artists are encouraged to submit as soon as possible for full consideration.
Artists selected for inclusion in the group exhibition will be notified Friday, January 2. Artwork must be received at the gallery between January 3 and January 7. We recommend that artists hand-deliver the work between 12pm and 6pm, January 3-7. Artwork can be shipped to the gallery, but Smack Mellon is unable to cover shipping or return shipping costs.
Two-dimensional work will be hung salon-style. Artwork may be in any size and any medium. Artwork must be exhibition-ready with hanging hardware. Smack Mellon is unable to frame any artworks for the exhibition.
Three-dimensional works, including sculptures, artifacts, objects, and artist books, will be accepted.
Video submissions will be accepted. Video works by multiple artists will be looped on a single monitor.
Performance submissions are accepted. Performances must be submitted as video documentation of past work. In the image script, clarify that the video is meant as a performance proposal (and not a self-contained video artwork).
This is a large exhibition with limited space, and our goal is to include a large and diverse group of artists. Accordingly, size will be considered when evaluating your work. Video works that are shorter than 8 minutes will receive the strongest consideration.
Due to time and space limitations, we are only able to consider a single submission from each artist. Because this is an unusual exhibition with many public events, we are unable to insure artworks exhibited in the gallery.
Event Proposal Guidelines
We would like to provide Smack Mellon's 5,000 square foot gallery space to be used by community organizers, activists, artists, and communities to organize, collaborate, and act.
We invite members of the community to submit proposals that will:
Provide concrete resources to help adults and youth to participate in the community and political response to the epidemic of police violence against black men
Empower young people to engage in the political process through conversation, creation, and protest
Create cross-generational and cross-community connections that extend beyond the art world and facilitate enduring collaborations
