La Vitrina – La Vitrina es un nuevo espacio expositivo ubicado en la “ventana” del Lado V de TEOR/éTica. Fue inaugurado en Mayo de 2013 con el proyecto Fermentando Sinergias de Carlos Fernández. Funciona como un lugar de exposición abierto 24/7 que propicia el vínculo con el espacio público desde un espacio privado. El objetivo de La Vitrina es que los transeúntes del Barrio Amón, puedan interactuar y ser interpelados con proyectos artísticos que promuevan la curiosidad y la reflexión en torno a eventos de actualidad, así como la participación y apropiación del espacio urbano, entre otros.
La Convocatoria – El proyecto Hacer Noticia en La Vitrina, busca propuestas artísticas que planteen formas creativas de intervenir el espacio, y que sean el resultado de un análisis a profundidad sobre algún tema de actualidad y como este es tratado en los medios de comunicación masiva en Costa Rica. Interesan proyectos experimentales que pueden ser procesuales, que planteen una reflexión crítica sobre la forma en que los medios de comunicación emiten la información y cómo esta es digerida y procesada por el público.

La propuesta de intervención del espacio de La Vitrina deberá estar formulada con claridad para que, tanto el tema propuesto como lo que se quiere comunicar, se comprenda y atraiga a un público amplio. La intención es que promueva diversas maneras de “leer” los eventos de actualidad.

Esta convocatoria insta a los participantes a indagar en el contexto social para formular propuestas artísticas a partir de su realidad inmediata.Debido a las condiciones físicas del espacio, La Vitrina cuenta con muy poca seguridad, por lo cual no es recomendable hacer uso de equipo tecnológico u otros materiales de costo elevado. Para la realización del proyecto de intervención seleccionado, Lado V ofrece una bolsa de trabajo de hasta $500, además de apoyo logístico y de difusión.

Para participar, enviar a [email protected]:

CV, Propuesta escrita, máximo de dos páginas, donde se explique el proyecto, su justificación y las necesidades técnicas. Bocetos, imágenes, documentos o cualquier otro material de referencia que se considere necesario.

Art & Mobility: Call for texts and artistic projects

For the publication of issue #55, the digital journal InterArtive will publish a special issue dedicated to diverse aspects of the current discussion about Art & Mobility. Theorists, critics, curators and artists who work on the subject are invited to participate.

Artistic practices and creativity are directly and closely linked to mobility. A great part of the art and architecture that we know would not have existed if it weren’t for the urge to travel, to discover, the need to go beyond the limits – territorial and intellectual – of the known. To reflect on mobility today means to widen the perspective, to go beyond the concepts of travel, discovery and displacement; it calls for an analysis of the social, political, economic and cultural phenomena linked to it.

Texts should be around 800 to 3000 words: Format Guidelines (pdf)
The works and art projects will be published in the form of Virtual Gallery (images and short text): Format Guidelines (pdf)
Proposals should be submitted up until July 15, 2013, by mail at: [email protected]

Leading contemporary art gallery White Cube has invited São Paulo-based curator Adriano Pedrosa to curate an exhibition at their Mason’s Yard gallery, London, in July 2013.

Pedrosa’s project, titled Open Cube, will attempt to infiltrate the hierarchies of the gallery system by inviting any interested artists to submit works to be included in the exhibition. By opening up the selection process, Pedrosa wishes to unsettle the system of gallery practices, initiating a dialogue with artists that might not have access to this network.

Shortlisted artists must be available for interviews in London with Adriano Pedrosa in March and April.
A comprehensive catalogue with texts by Pedrosa will accompany the exhibition.

Agência de projetos não-realizados (Agency of Unrealized Projects – AUP) convoca

Unlike unrealized architectural projects, which are frequently exhibited and circulated, unrealized artworks tend to remain unnoticed or little known. But perhaps there is another form of artistic agency in the partial expression, the incomplete idea, the projection of a mere intention? Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) seeks to document and display these works, in this way charting the terrain of a contingent future.

Though the state of being unrealized implies the potential for realization, not all projects are intended to be carried out. In other instances, artists deliberately leave works incomplete, to record very interesting “failures” or experiments. Other planned projects involve consciously utopian, non-utilitarian, and conceptual spaces that were not made available for realization. Whether censored, forgotten, postponed, impossible, or rejected, unrealized projects form a unique testament to the speculative power of non-action.

You are invited to contribute your own unrealized projects to AUP’s growing archive. Contributions can include text (DOC) and image files (two JPEGs or PDFs up to 2MB each), and can be submitted online at www.e-flux.com/aup. Please include one paragraph describing your project.

Submission deadline: May 25, 2011

The Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) will be opening a temporary office in Basel this June, comprising of an archive of unrealized art projects. This will present projects collected through this open call and those collated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Guy Tortosa following several years of international research conducted in the late 90s. AUP follows the exhibition of the book project Unbuilt Roads: 107 Unrealized Projects, presented as a public archive at e-flux in 2009.

AUP is a project of e-flux in collaboration with the Serpentine Gallery devised by Julieta Aranda, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Julia Peyton-Jones and Anton Vidokle.

Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) identity is designed by Liam Gillick.
