Deadline 15 July 2013
Working in partnership, Jerwood Visual Arts and Photoworks invite submissions of existing or proposed work for inclusion in a Jerwood Encounters exhibition curated by Photoworks and showing at Jerwood Space, London in November 2013.
The exhibition will present new commissions and/or existing work by three emerging artists/photographers relating to ‘Family Politics’ – the curatorial theme of the first issue of Photoworks Annual which will launch alongside the exhibition.
Curatorial Theme: Family Politics
As a subject, the family is both private and public: the site of intimate inter-personal relations and a social construct subject to public and political pressures. This relationship is mirrored in examples of family photography. The majority of family pictures serve essentially private functions, accruing meaning through their relationship to the memories, experiences and histories of individuals. However, the family is also the subject of public photographic representation and contestation largely through digital media and ‘over sharing’. This involves a wide variety of practices, including representations in the mass media, art and advertising.
Eligibility: Both Photoworks Annual and the exhibition will be open to the expanded way in which photography is being used today. Work submitted for the exhibition may include approaches not specific to photography (eg sculpture, film, drawing, tapestry) but should draw on a photographic language and reference points.
Submissions are sought from UK-based practitioners who are within five years of graduating or setting up their practice.
How to apply:
- Please email a PDF document, no larger than 5mb, to email@example.com including the following information:
- A short statement outlining how your work (existing or proposed) relates to the theme of ‘family politics’.
- Up to five images with captions
- A one page CV
Fee: An artist fee of £1000 will be available for participating artists. Dependent on the nature of the selected works, some additional exhibition production support will also be available from the Photoworks and Jerwood Visual Arts teams.
Selection Process: All proposals will be considered by members of the Photoworks and Jerwood Visual Arts team. One or more artists will be selected for exhibition from this open call.
Timeline: Deadline for submissions: 5pm 15 July 2013
Artists notified: 26 July 2013
Exhibition development: July – October 2013
Installation: 30 October – 4 November 2013
Exhibition open: 6 November – 8 December 2013

We are inviting a wide range of individuals/organisations across art-forms to propose new works or existing works for our summer 2014 festival programme.

The prefix ‘trans-’ points to some of the problems of universal concepts and ongoing boundary disputes between epistemes. It modifies the meaning of what it is attached to: transaction, transcription, transgression, translocation, transmission, translation, transdisciplinarity, to name only a few of the many examples in contemporary culture. Transart Institute positions itself in these alternative name-spaces where art practice, knowledge production, and research processes operate in the tensions between, across, through, and beyond establishing paradigms. Rather than prefixing meaning, Hito Steyerl talks about artistic research speaking several languages at once – and as “an act of translation”. But if this is the case, the symposium asks how do we further translate ‘trans’ to account for the apparent normalisation of its application?
As part of an ongoing process of developing a research community and network, we are organising our first symposium in a series of bi-annual events. In doing this, we wish to be reflexive (not least about the use of the term trans-art), and invite researchers, artist-researchers, artists, and others, to explore some of these acts of translation.
We are seeking proposals from researchers, artists, artist-researchers, curators, and academics for short papers or alternative forms of presentation such as performance-lectures. Submissions might relate to the following as a point of departure and as a possible structure for the symposium:
- modes of communication and exchange (trans-actions, trans-missions).
- forms and paradigms through which artistic research operates (trans-scriptions, trans-disciplinarities)
- spaces in which knowledge is formed, produced and disseminated (trans-locations)
- the deeper consequences of changing something to something else (trans-gressions, trans-formations, trans-lations)
We hope to uncover alternative models of knowledge production; to excavate relatively forgotten histories of attempts to rethink organizational and institutional structures; to explore the potential of technological paradigms to redefine possibilities; and reveal examples of non-traditional methods, use of non-textual language, speculations, and actions.
