Call for Proposals | Art Without Limits: Farther Regions

The Texas Tech University School of Art Serial Experiments in Artist-Curated Micro-Exhibitions presents Art Without Limits : Farther Regions Curated by Carson Murdach in collaboration with Earthbound Moon.

Deadline: March 24, 2014

“Artists can get discouraged and their art-making interrupted by practicalities like deadlines, proper studio space, available resources, technology and the biggest heartbreak of all; not enough money. What if an artist was presented with the possibility to create a work of art without these limitations? What if that artist had financial backing, equipment, materials, manpower and experienced technicians ready to take direction and create their vision? What if that artist’s work wasn’t limited by the fact that they live on the planet, Earth, in the year 2014 and are subjected to physical laws?

Art Without Limits: Farther Regions explores what is possible for artists when they are released from practical, economical and physical constraints. What can be accomplished without limitations of natural laws, moral codes or current technologies? Art Without Limits will give artists resources to execute their dream-projects. Artists often create work that is determined by the walls around them. Art making is often a problem that needs to be solved. We would like to solve that problem. You can create art anywhere in the Universe! Show us your gallery inside of a volcano, your sculpture on top of the Great Pyramids,float your work on top of the largest storm in the solar system or Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. Unbound by the physical realities of the here and now, the sky is not your limit!

Earthbound Moon seeks proposals from around the world for fantastically imaginative and absurdly inventive site oriented artworks. You have artistic immunity; you have every resource you need. Indulge us!

Proposals will be exhibited in April 2014 at Texas Tech University.

The requirements of the Artist proposal are outlined simply as:

  • CV
  • Rendering of the theoretical artwork.
  • Return envelope with return postage
  • Description of the artwork that can be as long or as short as the artist wishes.
  • No entry fee.

Call For Proposals: Art Works – NEA

Supporting multidisciplinary art-science collaborations.

DEADLINE: March 07, 2013

From National Endowment for the Arts:

“The guiding principle of “Art Works” is at the center of everything we do at the NEA. “Art Works” refers to three things: the works of art themselves, the ways art works on audiences, and the fact that art is work for the artists and arts professionals who make up the field.

To make “art work,” the NEA has included the advancement of innovation as a core component of its mission as a way to ensure the vitality of the arts. We recognize that arts and design organizations are often in the forefront of innovation in their work and strongly encourage innovative projects which are characterized as those that:

  • Are likely to prove transformative with the potential for meaningful change, whether in the development or enhancement of new or existing art forms, new approaches to the creation or presentation of art, or new ways of engaging the public with art;
  • Are distinctive, offering fresh insights and new value for their fields and/or the public through unconventional solutions; and
  • Have the potential to be shared and/or emulated, or are likely to lead to other advances in the field.

Call for Papers: Science, Engineering, Art and Design Collaboration

SEAD Call for White Papers on Issues Facing the International Community Seeking to Enhance Collaboration Among the Sciences, Engineering, Arts and Design.”

Deadline: August 15, 2012

“The US National Science Foundation -funded Network for Sciences, Engineering, Arts and Design (SEAD: http://sead.viz.tamu.edu/) is issuing an open International Call for White Papers from the community. The Principal Investigator is Carol LaFayette of Texas A&M University.

We are seeking to survey concerns, roadblocks and opportunities, and solicit recommendations for enhancing collaboration among sciences, engineering, arts and design. These position papers will be submitted as part of a report to NSF and the community from the SEAD network in the summer of 2013. With grateful appreciation for US funding, we recognize that activity connecting the sciences, engineering, arts, and design is international and, furthermore, that global involvements are essential in today’s economy. Therefore we are interested both in what US collaborators can learn from experiences in other countries, and vice versa, and also in how to foster collaborations that bridge beyond regions to nations. Cultural cross-fertilization via the SEAD network – whether from disciplinary, organizational or ethnic perspectives – is a vital component of our purpose and goals…”
