ConTEXT III

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Foundry Art Centre is seeking submissions for “ConTEXT III,” an all media exhibition focusing on the written word’s role in the visual arts. The power of words cannot be overstated. Contemporary society is saturated with media and this exhibition showcases how intertwined the literary and visual arts are. We must ask ourselves how the words we read, and how we read them, impacts our understanding of the world. We ask artists ‘What happens when the visual arts and literary arts are fused?’

 

Awards: 

Best in Show awarded a “Going Solo” Exhibition 

Two Juror’s Choice Awards -  $150 cash prize each

 

Eligibility: 

Open to all artists, 18 years and older, world-wide, both amateur and professional. This includes alternative and traditional artwork.

International Endoscopic Film Festival

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Axle Contemporary seeks short video works utilizing endoscopic camera footage.

People have always been finding ways to look inside, behind, and beyond.  With the invention of the endoscopic camera we can now easily look inside holes and pipes and bodies.

Today endoscopes are routinely used for arthroscopic surgery, and colonoscopy. Plumbers have adopted the technology for diagnosing blockages, feeding borescopes deep into household and municipal sewer pipes. As the technology had blossomed, uses for the endoscope have expanded. Mechanics look inside machines, biologists look inside underground nests, and treasure hunters look into storm drains. Endoscopic cameras are now available for as little at $20.

Axle Contemporary is now pleased to announce the International Endoscopic Film Festival. A series of short films to be screened in Axle’s mobile artspace from June 12-21, 2020, in conjunction with the Currents Festival of New Media Art.

Axle welcomes all filmmakers and artists to create and submit short films (3 minutes max) for consideration for the festival. All films must use footage captured with an endoscopic or borescopic camera. Other footage can also be included. Footage can be captured by the filmmaker or repurposed from medical or commercial borescope footage.

Submission deadline:  April 17

Notification of acceptance:  May 1

File delivery by: May 15
