|The NMAC Foundation, as part of their program to support young emerging artists, organizes an artistic workshop with international artist Wilfredo Prieto. His "incidences from the private to the public and from the public to the private" workshop will be held at the NMAC Foundation from September 20 to 22, 2013.|
This workshop, organized together with the General Direction of Promotion of Fine Arts of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, is directed to young emerging artists who would like to be engaged in a dialogue about the creative process, inspiration and production. The workshop, free for all participants, will be based on the exchange of ideas with Wilfredo Prieto, while also functioning as a generator of new ones within the context of the NMAC Foundation.
The NMAC Foundation was created as a platform of creativity and production for site-specific projects based on the interaction between its social, cultural and territorial context of cross borders between Africa and Europe. Since 2001, NMAC is committed to supporting contemporary artists on site-specific projects promoting international artists on outdoor ambitious productions. Within the collection indoors and outdoors, one can find works by Adel Abdessemed, Marina Abramovic, Maurizio Cattelan, Olafur Eliasson, Sol Lewitt, Pascale Martine Tayou and James Turrell, among others.
Wilfredo Prieto's work is known for its conceptual forcefulness and narrative brevity with no superfluous elements. With a refined sense of humour, one can find in his work an insistent reference to artistic practice, semantic games and a poetry that joins persistence and subtlety in a balanced way. Prieto lives and works between La Havana and New York. He studied at the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in La Havana and was a DUPP Gallery (From a Pedagogical Pragmatism) member, a collective of artists ISA. In 2000, he received with DUPP, UNESCO Prize for the Promotion of the Arts at Seventh Havana Biennial, and in 2006 he was awarded with the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, New York (2006). He has done artist residencies at Kadist Art Foundation, Paris (2005) and the Residency Program at Le Grand Café in Saint-Nazaire, France (2007).Subscriptions are due on August 20.
To be eligible, participants' applications must be submitted by August 20, 2013.
Download form: www.fundacionnmac.org and send to email@example.com
Candidates will be informed of their acceptance via email by September 1st. The program is international and English and Spanish will be used as the working languages. Duration of the Workshops is three full days at the NMAC Foundation.
The workshop is free of any charge and lunch will be given to participants for the duration of the program. Accommodation is not provided by the NMAC Foundation.

|Proposal Deadline: September 1, 2014Project Anywhere is an expanded exhibition model encompassing the entire globe (and beyond) in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. Emphasizing artistic projects situated outside conventional exhibition contexts, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the promotion of advanced artistic practice at the outermost limits of location-specificity.|
Project Anywhere endorses a two-stage peer review system comparable with the journal-based paradigm for assessing the quality of research outcomes in the arts. Accordingly, Project Anywhere is designed to suit artist academics working anywhere in the world who are seeking independent peer validation and international web-based dissemination for practice-based research.
Please send proposals (as an attachment) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your proposal should include the following:
1. Title of proposed project.
2. Location(s), date(s) and duration for proposed project (this can be updated later).
3. A detailed project proposal clearly stating the project's potential for creating new knowledge (please refer to the peer review guidelines at www.projectanywhere.net).
4. Images, files (under 8mg in total) and links can be included where appropriate.
To be eligible for the first stage of our peer review process, it is imperative that ALL name and contact details are removed from the actual proposal document (and accompanying materials). Contact details should be included in the body of the email only. Any submissions that do not conform to the above criteria will NOT be sent out for peer review. Please note that Project Anywhere does not provide project funding nor expect exclusive hosting rights. Accordingly, we welcome multi-partnered and collaborative projects and/or projects that are hosted by other arts institutions seeking blind peer-validation.
