Open Call | Collective Exhibition at Gallery X

Deadline for submissions: 31 May

The next collective exhibition at Gallery X, titled Cock and Pussy, would like to celebrate the parts of our bodies around which most of our lives revolve, and yet which are most often hidden away and forgotten.

This is an exhibition against shame, because shame is the parent of repression. Gallery X want to celebrate freedom, joy and pleasure.

Gallery X are looking for works that are graphic and joyous. In accordance to the principles of GalleryX, the works must be skilful, daring and accessible. Gallery X would also like to avoid banal exploitative material.

Send your proposals with jpgs to info@galleryx.ie – either pictures of the actual works you are proposing, or stylistic examples of what will be provided.

Selected artorks must be supplied ready to hang by 20 August. Exhibition will open 31 August.

Call for Speakers | Digital Transformations Conference, Co. Leitrim

Deadline: 30 April 2017
Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, County Leitrim

Conference takes place on 14 and 15 October 2017.
This conference looks at the cultural impacts of the emerging digital society – a society in which human relations are dependent on digital technology. These technologies are providing new challenges and opportunities for artists, but also for people in general, who need their artists to help them understand its impacts and to preserve cultural identity in the face of these profound changes.
Issues the conference hopes to explore include authorship, memory, automation, copyright and commodification, politics and ideology. The conference seeks to bring together artists, people in creative industries, the tech sector, higher education, and people involved in the formulation of arts policy in Ireland.

We are looking for people that can make an engaging contribution to this debate – either through simple presentations/lectures, or something more interactive.

WMM Women Make Movies Season at Void Derry

25 March to 20 May

The Women Make Movies Season at Void Derry is a moving image exhibition that explores the international diversity, history and achievement of women film makers and artists. The thematic framework is that of civil rights explored from a feminist perspective, viewed through the lens of current events impacting on movement and immigration issues. In March, the month of International Women’s Day, Void is proud to present a programme of documentary, experimental and dramatic works in association with Women Make Movies (WMM) a New York based media arts organisation. First established in 1972 in order to address both the under and misrepresentation of women in the film and media industries, WMM provides services for both makers and users of film and video.

In 1997 the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MOMA) honoured 25 years of WMM with a special tribute and retrospective exhibition showing 25 Women Make Movies titles, whilst in the 30th anniversary year WMM presented a record breaking ten films at the Sundance Film Festival, including the Special Jury Prize winner Lourdes Portillo in January 2002. Currently WMM collects and distributes over 500 films, representing over 400 film makers, from 40 countries worldwide. Integral to the film screening season at Void will be a dynamic weekly programme of discussion and screenings of film and video made by locally based film makers, aimed at connecting the themes of the international screenings with the issues of community interest groups and individuals.
