The sixth edition of the Biennial will take place in the fall of 2017, with a series of exhibitions focused on relevant conversations around the state, and parallel programming at venues across the state.

The Texas Biennial has worked with many different curators and taken many approaches to selecting artists from the open call. This iteration will be led by Mexico City-based, independent curator Leslie Moody Castro as the TX★17 Curator and Artistic Director. Moody Castro will make individual selections from works entered. For the first time in the Biennial’s history, all artists selected from the Open Call will be awarded a stipend.

The Texas Biennial is open to all artists living and working in Texas. Artists attending Texas-based residency programs are eligible to apply, as long as the work was completed during the time spent in Texas. Artists living and working within 10 miles of a Texas border are also eligible to apply (Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Mexico).

APPLY TO THIS CALL

Call Type: Public Art
Eligibility: International
City: Dallas
State: Texas
Fee: $0.00
Entry Deadline: 6/1/17

The Public Art Program of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs requests the submission of qualifications from artists for consideration to design, fabricate and install a free-standing, outdoor public artwork that will be a tribute to the life and work of Dallas artist Arthello Beck, Jr.

Arthello Beck, Jr., Dallas African-American artist, was born in Dallas on July 17, 1941. He was the first African American to own and operate an art gallery in Dallas. Arthello believed his art was a means of communication, a vital therapeutic form of expression for the young and old. His paintings reflected positive images of African-American people and culture; congregations at river baptisms, ladies at a beauty shop, children learning, sports scenes and dads reading to their babies are just some of the everyday scenes Beck captured on canvas.

Artwork should create a space or environment that invites community interaction with the artwork and incorporates themes central to Arthello Beck’s work.  Themes include references to positive African American experiences appropriate for children and adults in the surrounding neighborhoods. The Project Budget is $81,488.

Arts partners are encouraged to implement their projects in non-traditional art venues to highlight unique and creative spaces in San Antonio. The projects that are ultimately selected will be reflective of the city and county’s rich heritage, taking into account our 300 years of history, and encouraging active community participation.

TVAA’s 2017 Abstracted Redacted call for art

May-TVAAA-Gallery-Poster1-471x600

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”

When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.

In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.
