The Babel Masks

Eligibility:

WHAT IS THE LIBRARIAN OF BABEL?
The Librarian of Babel is a virtual space created for the purpose of bringing artists and thinkers together at different events.

WHAT IS THE CALL?
We call all artists to create and submit a mask to The Babel Masks, a juried exhibition of original masks.

WHAT IS THE SHOW ABOUT? 
Masks have become a way of life in 2020 as we grapple with the covid-19 pandemic. What if masks remain with us from now on?

This exhibition imagines how masks will evolve in 100 years as daily wear. In the hands of artists, the design still protects the mouth and nose while being more expressive, even more sculptural, more stylish and more ceremonial than the basic design we know today.

We want to see the dreams and visions that are coming to you from your daydreams and nightmares of 2120! Given how fast fashion and art evolve and move from one decade to the next, consider how much one artist can to do take the simple protective mask and raise it to a form of high art  . . . or high fashion.

WHERE WILL MY WORK APPEAR? The Babel Masks is a virtual exhibition space. If selected, your work will appear there as well as in a print-on-demand exhibition catalog.

HOW MANY WORKS DO I SUBMIT?
Each artist may submit one mask. We want to see three images of your mask. Please use the weblink in this ad for further instructions on how to apply.

HOW IS WORK SELECTED?
Works will be selected by a blind jury and included in a virtual exhibition as well as a print-on-demand catalog.

IS THERE A FEE?
There is no fee to apply or to exhibit. Send us your work!

Deadline:

.art Domains and Ars Electronica Launch an Online Exhibition for the 2020 Edition of the Festival

In response to the global pandemic and its impact, the leading new media arts festival Ars Electronica has partnered with .art Domains to inaugurate Ars Electronica .ART Gallery, the online arm of the festival this year. It will be the first time in the festival’s history that an online showcase accompanies the physical event. 

Ars Electronica .ART Gallery will invite its visitors to explore two sections: Ars Electronica .ART Global Gallery and Ars Electronica .ART Pavilions. The Global Gallery section is open to all applicants through an Open Call, which offers digital artists a unique opportunity to be part of the festival by submitting their work to be exhibited in this section. Ars Electronica .ART Pavilions will feature special projects presented by Ars Electronica's selection of curators.

The current situation has set the stage for an unprecedented shift toward the online. Rising to these challenging times, the team behind .art Domains has developed .art Digital Twin. Ars Electronica .ART Gallery is highlighting the variety of projects that are possible within the online format and offer participating artists the opportunity to certify their works with this new tool.

The .art Digital Twin captures the artwork information in quality and volume that wouldn't be possible with a "traditional" offline certificate. Using the DNS (domain name system) stability as its foundation allows for Ethereum integration and existing blockchain solutions to be additionally used. The .art Digital Twin empowers artists to attach and store an unprecedented number of data and files about an artwork, allowing for new levels of data sharing in an online exhibition format. Together with Ars Electronica, the team behind .art Domains hopes to improve the current conditions for digital art certification. 

Submissions are now open for the Ars Electronica .ART Global Gallery

Open Сall application deadline: 01/09/2020

Ars Electronica .ART Gallery will be presented from 9th Sept – 23rd September 2020
