Opp: Hot Steam III Call for Video + Films Due: March 6


HOT STEAM is an annual screening organized by Cambridge Community Television that takes place in Cambridge, Massachusetts during the Cambridge Science Festival. This year the screening will be held on April 23, 2020 at the MIT Museum.

The goal of this event is to bring scientists and artists together to explore the intersection of art and tech in an accessible and exciting way (meaning videos should appeal to a wide audience – children and adults alike). We are looking for films/videos that are short, interesting, strange and bizarre. Interpretation of the theme can be very loose.

The curators for HOT STEAM III are Keaton Fox (Boston Cyberarts + Cambridge Community Television), Caroline Castro (Frost Science Museum), and Isabella Achenbach (Cranbrook Art Museum).

The videos must be 5 minutes or less. There is no submission fee.
Content is due by March 6th.

The Submission Form is available here.

Spotlight + Event: Disrupting the Daily Routine Exhibition + Performance, Feb 7


Performance at 7 pm February 7th with Thalia Berard and Willoughby Lucas Hastings. https://www.facebook.com/events/2430689647245951/
Situated in the lobby of Commerce Place, in Malden Center, Disrupting the Daily Routine is an exhibition presenting conceptual works in sculpture, new media, installation, and performance to the patients and practitioners that interact with this site daily. The artists in this show challenge themselves and viewers to begin the 2020 year by evaluating the ways in which we react to the failures of our habitual actions and worldviews. Anja DuBois grapples with the unknowability of living things to recognize any perspective or consciousness other than their own. Paulina MacNeil visualizes feelings of comfort and uncanniness from the inaccuracies in digital recreations of the physical world. Krystle Brown contends with the entanglements of familial memory within the myth of American meritocracy. Willoughby Lucas Hastings and Thalia Berard embody and subvert the tropes of performative patriotism to interrogate the ways aesthetics maintain ideological control. In the season of New Year’s Resolution and at the start of an election year, this exhibition proposes behavioral change and personal investment to confront the obstacles impeding the future health of our society.

Opp: Jerwood WB Artist Attachments provide paid time and support over a year for three early-career artists.



We will be offering three Jerwood WB Artist Attachments which will provide paid time and support over a year for three early-career artists. This is a significant opportunity for three artists to develop their practice, exploring new ideas and taking the risks that have the potential to transform practice and career. It is aimed at artists who are a critical early point in their career and priority will be given to artists who are currently under-supported across the contemporary visual art sector and face real barriers to accessing opportunities. Each artist will receive a fee of £8,000 plus materials and travel, and the tailor-made programme will include mentoring and peer support. The Jerwood WB Artist Attachments will run from April 2020 to March 2021, and the three artists will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas and/or new work at our next Whitstable Biennale festival in June 2021. The final date for submissions will be 6 March 2020.
